I have used it less as of late since pretty much the only discussions in there are either people asking about the weather or random off topic chatter. I just think there is too little activity in there to bother doing anything about it.

The Logitech UltraX sure has fans. I know a couple of programmers who only use that one. It is low profile but doesn't have flat chiclet keys. The old one does that is. The new ones with backlighting have terrible keys and quite the bad reputation. I liked the feel of the old one actually. It remai...

Semi active at least. I don't have a Topre board unfortunately. I made some caps with Topre mounts based on measurements, and I also made some MX-Topre adapters a few years back, but I never really tried them as extensively as I would have liked. The MX caps have reached a very nice fitting since I ...

[Suggestion] Change a particular image to clearify

http://deskthority.net/wiki/File:CherryMxPlatePcbMounted.jpg The above image is supposed to depict the difference between plate-mounted and pcb-mounted Cherry MX switches, and indeed they do. They unfortunately also differ in that the pcb-mounted example also has a jumper wire installed which really...

I absolutely forgot. I have some old quotes for Phantom plates in brushed stainless steel at $35 ex.tax/ea when ordering 20pcs. I found it to be too expensive but I just came across it when I had to send them another quote for something else and thought I should mention it here.

That was exactly my thoughts matt3o. It can't be that hard to fix, but I have since then changed my mind a bit. Although conductive ink/tape would probably work and not require me to undo the bolt mod, it is somewhat expensive. After checking around a bit, I haven't found any cheap sources for condu...

Thanks for the offers, but I was sort of hoping that I could salvage this with either conductive ink or conductive tape.

Well, the traces don't appear to be very metallic unlike all other ribbon cables I have encountered. I don't think the solder would wet well to these, and I don't know how the temperature might affect the plastic either which is why I eliminated solder. Thanks for the suggestion though, I will keep ...

I made a mistake restoring a Model M

I have boltmodded a few Model M's now, but this time I screwed up. It had exceptionally oxidized connectors on the ribbon cables, even after rubbing them they were still quite dirty. I just so happened to have a bottle of acetone right in front of me on the desk which I use to clean stuff with. So I...

I'm guessing there's not much (or any) of a volume discount with this kind of work? Because the kind of metal caps I'd like are a full set with embossed legends.

Really nice, especially the metal makes them true eye-catchers! What tools did you use for the voronoi shapes?

Also, if someone knows how to scale images at DT, I'd be grateful. [img width=200] for instance doesn't transfer well, and I haven't even found the correct tags for that here.

Will be following this. Have you accounted for tolerances and wiggle? What I mean is that you probably want a few tenths of a mm there just for clearance, and then there is an additional few tenths of a mm because the stems and caps wiggle a bit.

That was the problem I had when I tried them — it was like moving to a really bad scissor switch, squishy with short travel.
