Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

I just wanted everyone to know: If you order custom keys ($4/ea), you can have the 1u keys made with the homing nub. I just emailed Ellipse to confirm, and was happy to learn this is possible. As I'm customizing my meta and function key layout, I realized how useful this would be, and I'm excited t...

Re: Model F Technical Manual Project

@darkcruix, regarding the font, is it a derivative of Gorton as many keyboard manufacturers used, or a bespoke font? If the latter, do you have it available?

It's a bit gaudy. Frankly I think I'd prefer a more understated F62 or F77.

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Ok I couldn't help it. Whipped up a logo based on Berthold City Medium with some tweaks. One with (vertical) serifs, one without.

I think I like the one without vertical serifs better. It feels more in the spirit of Rand's IBM logo. Thoughts?

I want to clarify: in no way am I suggesting we use that quick and dirty preview as-is.

Maybe this has been asked before, but considering IBM released their font IBM Plex to the public (creative commons license I guess),
is there any plan to rewrite the manual in this font? I could assist typesetting it in LaTeX in my spare time.
*please* do this. This would be amazing.

Re: [IC] IBM Doubleshot Key Cap Set Group Buy?

Like others have said, if these are to be B/S keycaps, given the curved plates B/S keyboards (excluding M1, M2, and M15, of course) have, a sculpted form would be redundant and would not play to the advantages that curved plates with uni-profile keycaps allow. As such, I would only be interested if...

I do indeed like big space bars. And arrow keys. And blockers. Currently on a YAS62, which is almost perfect.

Alternately, this, because it's space-efficient and doesn't duplicate any keys. Would need a uniform profile set of caps though.
