Shall we have a DTA 2019?

Are there any plans going on in the background for this years awards already?

If not, shall we start a discussion here and now (as opposed to two weeks notice like last year)?

I really want to see the best picture awards come back this year, would even consider organizing it myself.

Re: Modern Beamspring? - The Silo Beam Switch

Great! Hopefully the design could also be used to revive all of the old HE keyboards collecting dust. If you are talking about the Micro Switch HE switches: this wont help. The MS switches are digital switches, even though HE is a sensing method that is capable of analog sensing. They have some cir...

Great board you got there :) I believe the extra legends are engraved and infilled. On my board the pi symbol got a little nick and you can definitely see that the white color has some depth underneath it. On the degree symbol you can also see that the level of the white color is lower than the leve...

Re: Symbolics 3600

Is it because their software was based on academic work? That I don't think they are that much of a legendary company?

Wings3D is great! As for the "dark" sides of symbolics: Symbolics felt that they no longer had sufficient control over their product. At that point, Symbolics began using their own copy of the software, located on their company servers—while Stallman says that Symbolics did that to prevent its Lisp ...
