I have closed the form, and based on survey results, I will proceed with the following layout:
- F13 F-row
- Led indicators (actually tied with "oled + rotary encoder" option but I will choose the "easier" option)

The next update will have renders, stay tuned!  ;D

Off Topic / Re: Antivax ?

Have you guys heard about the latest fad? Inhaling hydrogen peroxide !
The vax is untested, but lets use horse dewormer and inhaler peroxide...
Some seriously flawed logic here.

Not sure if I posted it here or not but I've been telling people once ivermectin is shown to not work well, they will find some other thing that's cheaper and/or easier to get in order to drive looks. It happened with silverhwatever, then it was ivermectin, and drinking bleach... now inhaling peroxide. Anti-vaxx is not about saving people, it's about views, looks and money.
Other Geeky Stuff / Re: Digital caliper recommendations for keyboard/pcb/hobby work?

There is several models between $10-$30, all cheap, all come from China, if you see others with a near identical look, it's a white label Chinese model. Pretty much anything in that price range is.
They all work decent enough for design work and even general 3d printing. You start see their limitations in 3d printing only on high end printers and rough milling work and even then you have something to compare them to, otherwise they work fine even then. They are NOT at all good enough for precision machining when you need precise, tight fit, but you don't need that.

Good, name brand, quality ones, are not going to sell for $30, or even $100, they tend to be near $200 or more.
If you want a really good one but not willing to spend $200+, check Ebay for used. I grabbed a last gen Mitutoyo for $80. Just beware, there is a TON of fakes of the latest gen, if it's a Mitutoyo for $30 or $40 or even $80 new, it's fake as hell and you would be just as good spending $20 or 30 on something else because inside it's the same thing.  Mine doesn't have a thumbwheel (bummer) or do fractional inches (meh), only decimal and metric, while my Chinese white label does mm, decimal inch and fractional inch and has a thumbwheel (it also eats batteries at 10x the speed). All that said, my 3d printing quality and precision did go up when I got the Mitutoyo, something I didn't expect, but I wasn't having problems with the Chinese one.
Keyboards / Re: Love MX Browns? Post here. (Hate them? Go away.)

  To test out a new keyboard I put some "glorious pandas" I had sitting around in to give it a workout.  Damn, those lumpy things make my fingers tired!  Brown is fine, thanks.  ;)
I've never cared about ergonomics of keyboards because in over 30 years of heavy computing I've not once had any kind of rsi or strain or hand fatigue. Until this year when I put glorious pandas into my keyboard. After a few months I realised my knuckles were starting to hurt from the rock hard bottoming out. I honestly feel like those switches might have given me arthritis eventually. I've since replaced them with 'silenced' switches, but am currently looking at browns and Brown-likes as well.
Keyboards / Re: Aluminium or Wood Case for fullsize board
« Last post by Leslieann on Sat, 25 September 2021, 03:20:39 »
Few make cases alone because it's too keyboard specific and dependent on someone else.
Say you spend a bunch developing a case for Filco and they decide to alter something and it no longer fits or they discontinue it? Your product is now worthless.

Then there's the fact that the PCB is actually really quite easy and cheap to make, so no sense in riding someone else's work unless you have a good reason. More so, you can add whatever features you want with little to no extra cost.
