I’m aware that I said the profit margin would be €10 in the Interest Check. It was raised to €12.5 in order to cover PayPal fees, which I didn’t quite account for.

I’ll be posting weekly updates in the GeekHack thread in order to keep the GB as transparent as I can!

Too many keycap sets at the moment.
But I am thinking about this, my wife demands a white on black keyset...

Then your wife has a good taste and a rare opportunity to get correctly legended GMK caps ;)

Yeah, actually, speaking of correctly-legended caps...

What's up with that backspace legend? Why isn't a correct UK-ISO ¬ included? Yet there's a 1.5u super and fn... and six 1.0u bottom-row keys, but for some reason only one 1.0u ctrl and no matching 1.0u menu key. Also, no 1.25 menu key, only fn.

Edit: and the del/end/PgDn keys are Row 1 which is wrong... Reading the GH thread this seems to be because someone has a custom 96-key layout and wanted those keys.

Edit 2: I'm seeing a lot of justifications for the above weird things in the GH thread. Still, too many big compromises for me to get it for the UK support.

There is a good bit of tought behind most of it:

* I didn't give backspace a lot of thought, just went with the icon I liked initially. No one brought it up until the GB started, which was a bit late to say the least.
* The top left alphanumeric key differs between just about every layout from here to Neptune. It was made blank to lower the price.
* Modifiers were tricky to figure out exactly how to do. What I wanted to include was standard, wkl, HHKB, and 65%. Since 65% is not really standard, it was a matter of covering at least one of every 1u modifier (for 3x modifiers between space and arrows) and 1.5u modifiers (for 2x modifiers between space and arrows)
* The second row of navigation keys were made R1 for better compatibility with a lot of custom layouts. Even if it doesn't comply with the physical row numbers in cases such as 65%, it's uniform across the rightmost column. Meanwhile, it more or less doesn't affect TKL layouts.
