Re: M0110 Clear Case

It's a modification for sure. There's been some talk on Mac forums about it and general consensus is it's an SLA printed case on the keyboard. They've also had a clear mouse and a clear joystick and you might notice none of them mention prototype or any real information. I bet they're betting on som...

tbh as a moderator, I don't really care what the reason for the report is. As long as it's flagged, it's enough for me to take a look at the post.

Re: DT Update Log and TODO

Naw, it's just regular old forum spam. You can dig through the IPs used to find a lot are hits for recent spam waves on forums, rather than being targeted at just us. The good news is you can notice some trends in IPs to help cut back. A lot of spam was coming from the 5.188.x.x range which is large...

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

Plate spring... I take it you can't touch type at any reasonable speed since plate springs just turn to a mush at any kind of respectable speed. I don't know why anyone would willingly use those mushy switches. Even worse, if you store the keyboard wrong and something runs across the top, the switc...

The left column is the only one you'll need, the right was just my reference for cables I was I was using as replacement.

Re: The Deskthority community it so much nicer than reddit

Can confirm, I'm a lazy bastard and I don't like to moderate much unless something goes off the rails. Usually problems resolve themselves without needing intervention.

I've got a *lot* of old computers with PS/2 so it's easier to just throw an adapter on the end when I need it. So update: It works! The keyboard side of things works absolutely fine. On the other hand, the trackpoint isn't auto centering. It's just stuck racing to the bottom of the screen no matter ...

Topre ANSI Enter Key Cap (Just the one)

I'm currently on the search for a Topre compatible enter key. Unfortunately me being me I managed to snap the stem on my Type Heaven's enter key making the board a little challenging to use. I don't particularly care what colour, could be black, could be puke green, just needs to fit.

Anyway, I've sent out the collections notices to the remaining Santas who haven't paid up. With any luck, the credit hit will be enough and we won't need to send out the "collectors", if you catch my drift.

Unfortunately with the matches already thrown out, I wouldn't be able to easily match you up with someone. The only exception would be if someone else voices they'd like to join late and I could pair up you two.
