Group Buys and Preorders / Re: [GB]EXENT - 65% made by TARO (In production)

RAMA had Massdrop deal with his M10 project for him and they ****ed it up so badly that he's now running the M6 by himself instead of relying on an actual vendor.

How did Massdrop mess up with that one?  The only thing I can see is the configurator issue, i.e.

I posted on RAMA facebook page. They said that the software developer went awol and they will be releasing something new to replace the configurator.

Been trying to get into contact with Machine Industries for the past few weeks with no avail, hoping he touches base soon with an update for us.

So I'm not sure how Massdrop messed it up in this case- unless they were the ones that recommended MI?

Group Buys and Preorders / Re: [GB] Cherry MX Silent Black Switches - Shipping Update

Blimey, thatís a lot of switches! Whatís the consensus on lubing these? Iíve seen a lot of people saying it isnít needed/the difference is barely noticeable?

I bought some silent black from Sennin's GB a few months back, and while the switches are very smooth stock, they still do benefit from lubing. If you do open the housing though, make sure you have switch stickers or switch films to install to reduce wobble.

Ah thanks for this, really helpful. :)

Best thing to do is harvest the stems and put them into Zeal housings, lubed with a little too much Krytox 106.
Have you tried this and installed the switches in a board? I like the idea but would like to know for sure if mixing these switches actually work.

I know it is "supposed" to work, but a tiny difference in measurement could make the franken-switches unusable.

Tracking finally updated last night.  Left City of Industry distribution center.  Nine days for USPS to even get it on its way out of the state is completely bonkers.

Shipment cleared Canadian customs yesterday afternoon.  Making the trek across country now.

I can safely say that this is also an issue for people living with their significant other.

New Members / Hi, I'm Martin and I want this! ("How hard could it be?")
« Last post by MarMun on Thu, 23 November 2017, 06:15:23 »
I like to have a mechanical keyboard as I type the whole day long and "just because"...

Total noob who thought: "How hard could it be?" <- turns out: very...

(read: everything you read below, I didn't know about anything at all 48 hours ago.)

As I could not decide which topic board to use (as I have trouble on all steps involved), I just tell you how it is going right here:

The plan:

1) Buy the Red Scarf III Ver.A 96 at MassDrop
- Except that I need to wait for half a year until delivery:
- I have only 6 days left to decide if I could actually handle the whole thing  :-\

2) Make a custom keyboard layout at keyboard-layout-editor.com
- ok, no problem here except I barely know what I'm doing
- you may see my current doodle here: http://bit.ly/2ApoIEP
  (I maybe call it "Commander Shepard"; I'm positive nobody else did this. Ever.)

3) Have the custom key caps printed at maxkeyboard.com
 - they may not support a "1.75 left shift", though
 - already contacted their support regarding this (waiting for reply)

4) Import the custom keyboard layout at TMK Keymap Generator
 - here we reach a new level of "very":
 - the page doesn't know how to handle the german umlauts I need
 - the german umlauts are not even listed under the supported labels
 - one million dollar question: How do I get my german umlauts into the .eep ? <-- TL&DR? Here are actual questions
 - bonus question: due to the umlauts, I have no room for some keys
 - so I need extra symbols on Y, X and C (accessible via "Alt")
 - how do I get these extra symbols on these keys?

6) Everything else should be piece of cake
 - except I didn't smolder since... I was 14, I guess (26 years ago)
 - needless to say I don't even have smoldering equipment
 - but I have the feeling I have enough time to buy one until I need to use it
 - I may even by one of these small things for training / testing purposes (e.g. this: http://bit.ly/2A1SXRj)


Long story short... If you like to see noob stumble through this adventure for the next 6-7 month, I'm all yours!

I could certainly use your help and advice  :D

Best wishes,
Martin
