Re: Univac Keyboard (Micro Switch)

Also this little code snippet works, however 1 in ~10 keypresses don't register. I did a little bit of research and found out that digitalRead() is actually quite slow. Is it possible that the code can't keep up with the short little pulse that the switch puts out? That is certainly possible, note ...

Re: Univac Keyboard (Micro Switch)

Does NKRO even matter if the switches are not "held". You would need to press down more than one switch in exactly that one little moment of the pulse to have any conflicts. You will not get any key combinations on the alpha keys, nor repeat for holding keys, but rollover and ghosting should not be ...

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.
