Re: Plans for the present and the future

quick update. the import tools I had for phpbb>nodebb failed so I would have to build an import script. While it's relatively easy and nodebb provides decent API/hooks , I don't have the time or stamina to do it. A few people gave their availability but I haven't heard from them with actual code yet...

Re: M0110 retro 60%

how's the battery life? what QMK keyboard did you use as base?

I did a m0110 a while back (too lazy to search but it's here on DT) and I have another ready to be modded :) I also happen to have that very same adafruit controller.

Well, obviously the Raspberry Pi 400 already has a keyboard. So it makes more sense to use a regular Raspberry Pi without an enclosure or peripherals.

I await the first Cherry Pi. :mrgreen:
rpi400 is easier to fit into a keyboard due to the form factor

Here shot_1608622786.jpg The keyboard is just a USB HID, remove it and build your own enclosure with cherrymx or whatever and a screen if you want. Added bonus GPIO.

Re: Advice on retrobrighting

you may try to remove the sticker with limonene or some light solvent but it's a long and tedious process. Your "luck" is that it is starting to peel off already so you can start from there. if you don't use strong peroxide and you don't brush it the sticker might even survive the retrobrighting but...

I believe both the PCB and the plate have to be custom made. Any 60% case could be used though.

Pruning of unused accounts

You probably noticed quite some spam in the last few hours. I made the registration process a little more complicated and deleted all weird unused old accounts (a lot of them).

It is possible that some legit accounts got deleted in the process. I'm sorry about that.
