Certainly curious though. I'm still curious about the black/clear difference, as the black ones tend to have that little island in the middle of the separator bar that I am guessing would change the pretravel and the actuation force by a tiny amount. Understanding these switches is going to take years yet!
  • snuci (Wed, 13 Dec 2017 23:27:38 +0100) Here's the first time I've seen the Hi-Tek logo and patent number on a waffle. Has this been spotted before? More pics to follow in the wiki. This keyboard was in an Exidy Sorcerer that I am cleaning up.IMG_3000.JPG
  • JP! (Thu, 07 Dec 2017 20:33:23 +0100) I could try changing my password to remove special characters since my password isn't super long. Otherwise I suppose the easiest workaround would be to create a secondary account. I can't be JP since the minimum is three characters, hence why I added the "!" in the first place.

Maybe your exclamation mark is the problem, so it might be worth a try with just "JP" as login.The only known one is "_" because MediaWiki can't distinguish " " from "_". I would have thought that it would be possible to have some sort of tweak in the phpBB code/tables to allow for this, e.g. a database column in phpBB where your wiki username is stored, so that it can be adjusted (e.g. php(mr_a500) → MW(mr a500)).I honestly don't know how this connection is implemented, or what can be adjusted, and whether a user account gets created the wiki with a modified username, or whether account creation fails, or what.The specific nature of the problem remains a mystery.
  • Myoth (Thu, 07 Dec 2017 20:08:33 +0100) I recall you can't use signs, I had to change my username from "Myoth-" to "Myoth" to be able to enter it ...
  • gkubed (Thu, 07 Dec 2017 20:05:41 +0100) IIRC the DT Wiki directs you to this page as far as usernames go: sure the Wiki also doesn't like enormous passwords too. I had to make my password shorter in order to log into the Wiki. According to my own experience, Wikipedia and Deskthority Wiki's password technical restrictions are different.

  • JP! (Thu, 07 Dec 2017 18:52:24 +0100) Not sure if this wiki system does not like my username or what but I have never been able to login using my DT account. Any assistance is appreciated.
  • Daniel Beardsmore (Mon, 04 Dec 2017 23:53:20 +0100) I imagine it works, since I've been doing it that way for several years ;-)
