Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

(2) Is there anything planned either official or non-official as an add-on, like a plate, that would cap the right hand numpad in such a way that only the top two rows of keys would show, and the arrow cluster on the bottom? I would like to know about this as well — I imagine it wouldn’t be too cha...

Re: [WTB] End-game Alps TKL

Well I made one out of pretty much the finest parts I could get my hands on, with Matt3os Granite caps and SKCM browns. For a fairly high end Alps build it has surprisingly easy to source parts:

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Zed, very cool keycap options!! I'd like to know if keycaps will be available after the first (and second?) production run of the F62s/F77s? I'm asking because some of us may like to wait until we have lived with the keyboards for a few weeks before deciding exactly how to pimp them..

Re: DT Update Log and TODO

I’m with Mu - phpBB is reliable and holds all of the historic threads, and while a newer forum software may have better features and a more active dev community, we don’t really need those features and the risks are substantial.

Personally I like the new logo. I like the old one too, so maybe I’m just not so hard to please. The only thing I would say though is that the old one lends itself really well to a square legend; I always thought the ‘DT’ logo with the negative-space D looked classy and sophisticated and frankly awe...

Second that. Although it’d share the unobtanium throne with the dream of pristine and somehow scratchiness-proofed Alps SKCM browns with lighter springs... actually I should probably just get some lighter springs for my TKL

I like it too, very cleanly done, maybe not the best color scheme but to each his own.

And the normal model m is not even remotely rare, remember they made millions of them and they’re damn near indestructible... which is of course one of the things we Dweebs With Keebs like about them.
