Re: suggestions for /dev/tty2 ?

I'd love to see a 1.25u space bar, and have the option of space bar mods, like on a HiPro or even an AT101. I never understood why keys meant to be hit with your thumb should not be convex we'll get there eventually, it's just that I can't add too many new keys in just one drop. I've added quite a ...

Re: suggestions for /dev/tty2 ?

The only thing that calls my attention is that the Bleached kit needs one R3 and one R4 1U alpha-colored keycaps. You could get away with omitting the R3 keycap (because there's two of those to replace the homing keys), but the R4 can't be omitted. yeah my bad, one of the two 1U R4 is just light gray

phpBB update

I applied a big update to phpbb, everything seems to be working but I'm noticing a few glitches here and there. Miraculously the wiki seems to be still working. If you see any issue please report.

matt3o, can you tell me what your favourite tactiles are with PBT MT3 like dev/tty?
I usually don't like tactile switches, but generally speaking anything that is heavier than a cherry brown works for me.

As promised, I checked out again the international kit;
thanks for your report, I'll have a look at it.

I've added two more kits. I'm still working on the japanese one, hope some nihonjin could chime in. Also the blanks are WIP

Drop prefers to merge kits as much as possible. I understand that because of: 1) they have a vast majority of noob customers; 2) less prone to fulfillment errors.

So I'd like to ask, will the Triumph mods be available? I would have gotten in on the small TKL-sized Drop buy a few months ago, but there were no Triumph mods. I basically want to buy a hefty R2 dev/tty.
yes, triumph will be available

very very very preliminary work. I tried to make a very comprehensive base kit, it's easier for fulfillment and Drop says they are full of noobs.
