Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

Huh...maybe I'm the edge-case that actually uses the winkey then. Was told another cool shortcut today too - win+shift+s for snippingtool :D. I use that one too, but it has not escaped notice that Micro$oft is pushing that one by improperly eliminating the preexisting Alt-PrtSc key combination. And...

@kbdfr, cool shortcut for the menu, but it doesn't work as a modifier; I can't move windows or open explorer/run etc using it :(.

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

Capslock is left control Left control is left FN Left alt is left alt Hence the winkeyless dilema...not enough keys that side of the spacebar :).

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

There are other problems with that board to be honest...I used one for about a month or so (can't remember why, masochism maybe) and the steep angle of the board, keyweight and the bloody pinging was infinitly more uncomfortable than the crappy enter key.

Re: First Build Thread Custom Alps TKL

Very nice project, looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Amber alps are still on my "to try" list so this one is of particular interest to me :).

Custom boards don't have to break the bank, my favourite came from a £20 Focus board and a £15 junker M0118 I nabbed on ebay.

Regarding an ISO HHKB... I couldn't get on with the HHKB for a few reasons, mostly around the blank corners and the left shift and missing ISO key so my concession which I've been using for a few years now and really like is the one below. All the fun of the right side of the HHKB with the added fun...

Very cool find. I wonder if the blockers are like those on the G80-5000 where they are plastic-riveted in place on the back of the PCB? Also, re the DB9 converter, if this keyboard was designed for a specific application a conversion may be a bit tricky. The good news is I'm fairly certain there are...

I have a NeXT non-ADB in US ANSI layout. I like the form factor and overall appearance. The Hasu converter works well, and I was able to remap the board to a HHKB-ish layout. Minor quibbles: the case is a fingerprint magnet, and I prefer clicky Alps switches. Was saying to Mu earlier, if I do get i...
