Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

In Swedish/Finnish layout, at least under Linux, Æ, Ø, Þ, Ð, ß and × are available with Alt Gr on A, Ö, T, D, S and * respectively, and µ on Alt Gr-M of course. These mappings are all very straightforward. If you have enabled the Compose key, you could use that to create — and ÷ . A decent word pro...

Re: Post a picture of your ideal keyboard layout!

There are some alternatives to Alice with a similar (or identical) layout. One GB closed the day before yesterday after having been open for only a couple of days (what the hell!). One has been in a IC stage for several months.

Personally, I think the right Space and Alt are too much too the left.

Re: Do B3G-S switches fit into standard Cherry plates?

Cherry plates use 14mm*14mm hole size, 13.5mm*13.5mm will be fine for B3G-S according to specification. https://deskthority.net/w/images/f/f4/Omron_B3G-S_specification_1986.pdf Hmm.

Re: Topre Realforce R2 6-key rollover issue?

It's a software 'issue'. An input device over USB is always limited to 6kro, you can only reach higher kro when a keyboard controller works as multiple keyboards. No, that's totally incorrect. A myth that has persisted for much too long. NKRO over USB is possible. It can however be problematic to g...

Re: Let's make the worst layout ever!

Two words: Vertical stagger. I agree. If you are supposed to have your wrists orthogonal to the keyboard, then a vertical stagger or a symmetric horizontal stagger would have been better than this. Also, the very small amount of hand separation and lack of angle between key halves makes it worse fo...

Re: Problems flashing an M110A converter (again)

Are you shorting the GND and RST pins together just before flashing to put it into bootloader mode? Unless it is the very first time, you'd need to short the pins twice in quick succession. Then avrdude must be run immediately afterwards. I think it goes out of bootloader mode if you wait to long.

The best bottom row IMHO. The modifiers you use the most are big and in the right positions.

It's got so much hate because Filco doesn't use it. "Oh, It's non-standard. Bwa bwa bwa". :roll:
