Re: 7bit, where are you?!

It's not the first time 7bit goes off the grid. There might still be reason for concern, but this kind of behavior is hardly unprecedented. Anyone who has ordered from r5/6 and paid via bank transfer should have what I assume is 7bit's real name. It shouldn't be that hard to track him down if one re...

Re: Do any modern Laptops have even halfway decent keyboards?

Most laptops these day sacrifice keyboard quality for thinness. But Thinkpads still do a decent job in my opinion – I actually like Lenovo's new 'smiley' key design, it's by far the nicest chiclet style keyboard out there. But except for the luggable gaming 'laptops' with MX switches, there really i...

Yes, it was. But unfortunately when MassDrop's engineers couldn't come up with a way to support other 60% boards (due to the USB routing issues the case imposed), those plans sort of went out the window. So for the first round this is only a complete package offering. Down the road, if there is eno...

Oh. I haven't paid that close attention to this thread, but wasn't the initial plan for this to be a 60 % keyset with support for various layouts (ANSI, ISO, international kits, etc.)? Plans can change of course, and the idea of offering a complete kit is understandable.

Neat! The case doesn't really do it for me, the oversized logo and visible bottom-row switches kind of kills it – but to each their own, and I'm sure the drop will do well. The keycaps, however, look gorgeous. What happened to making the keycaps themselves avaliable separately, perhaps with more opt...

Re: Round 5 in stock / Round 6 in production / phase 2 kits for sale!!!

Updates have been somewhat unreliable as of late. Maybe 7bit is still away. But I did eventually get a new invoice from the bot on the 17th as response to the 'wazzup' I sent on the 5th, so at least something's going on. Now the bot is seemingly back to giving the silent treatment, though. And still...

7bot isn't autonomous & requires 7bit to turn the crank & he's currently away, hence why the WASSUP messages aren't being responded to. Well, I did send a message just shortly after 7bit's last update, on the 5th. But I guess posting that update might have been the very last thing he did before lea...

But the bot refuses to answer my 'wazzup' messages, so I'm kind of in the dark here. Anyone else had any luck with the bo...

On a more serious tone, why are these key-caps so popular? Am I missing the obvious? They are classy, with perfect color combos, and perfect legends. Seems obvious to me why they're popular.

Okay, so maybe the official keycap inspector got a little exited by the white caps and shed a hair or ten. It can happen to the best of us. He's real sorry.

Is Elvish Ortho feasible to hope for in this drop? Any chance you could change the |\ key to a Elvish rune-Symbol? To me it kinda breaks the design..
