I'm not exactly sure why Micro Switch's keyboard does not feature ASCII sublegends on all alphas, I did complete it using the standard ASCII table. Thanks to constexpr for the idea of putting the remaining commands on other alphas with a 64 character offset.

H, J and M don't have ASCII sublegends in the original keyboard because their corresponding codes (BS, LF and CR) already have dedicated keys (DEL, LF and CR). That said, putting them "back" on in this set is for the best.  :thumb:

Doesn't look that good. I would have joined myself if this was offered in a sculpted profile such as SA, so as to keep things more faithful to the original. This in Cherry profile doesn't do it for me. :(

What time does the group buy end. I get paid tomorrow so was going to join then, but Kono just says the 29th. That leaves the actual ending time quite ambiguous.

A extension is definitely happening, so don't worry about that if you need a couple more days.

Everyone says that but forgets that Handarbeit had an MOQ of 150. This is 500. This design is clearly leaps and bounds better, but also has to sell leaps and bounds more. I really hope it gets there, love this set.

Actually, I didn't forget. However, it sold 230 units after the first run failed at 32 base sets.

Handarbeit had Krelbit w switchmod doing some great advertising on forums and keeping everyone up to date. (See Mom, I can get my point across while being polite)

Once we hear more details, we should probably keep reddit up to date w it.

I was literally just thinking that this set would probably sell better with some more marketing. Is it just me, or has it been strangely radio silent for an Oblotzky set?..

Also, don't tell me how to argue on the internet, Dad.

I think r/mk and r/mm reddit posts might get a few more buyers. Twice or three times more probably wouldnt be obnoxious. I'm happy to make them but I know your name carries weight.

Should be around that time, yes. Both colors of the set are Stock, so there is no possible color matching holdup.

Extras are usually sold on the vendor's websites after the GB units have shipped to the GB participants.

Kono store posted about ASCII : GMK gave us an estimated transit date of May 6th! It will ship to customers soon after the warehouse is back in order.

But there is no plan posted about ASCII except Kono store. I am not sure if this is real.

Have there been any updates regarding the shipping date? Last update from Kono's website says they originally estimated a ship date of May 6th. Just curious, as I'm sure covid-19 is delaying shipping dates.

But does it still work?  I don’t mind a bit of banana as long as the stabilizers don’t bind.  Just can’t use on a lower profile board where it shows.

Seems to work okay with durock stabs. I do happen to mind, but I'm not going to get into that debate again here.

Slight banana is fair, but I don't think many will notice unless you're looking for it. That said, GMK has done better in the past.

Got mine in. Indeed some warping on both space bars.  The set is stellar.  Space bars are less than stellar. 

I’d love to get replacements just to have the set be a 10/10.  But where would we go?  Kono?
