Other Geeky Stuff / Re: what is a hot swappable keyboard?
« Last post by Enemy on Sun, 20 January 2019, 06:33:31 »
Hot-swappable refers to what you already mentioned, pulling out a switch and replacing it (in theory possible while running). Most people want hot-swappable boards to try out new switches and it saves them the time and effort of desoldering the old switches. Since mechanical switches usually last upward of 50 million activations, switches are usually swapped for a different feel and not to replace a broken part.

Hope this helps

Are the currently shown kits final? I think this set would look amazing with a dark mods kit

My IBM Model F 122, currently my work keyboard.

And my IBM Model F 107, home keyboard.

I have thought about doing this myself.

I am typing this on a GMMK with Kailh Box Navy Switches. I'm using the keycaps that come with the GMMK but I would like to get a set with a better font. At work I am using the Hexgears X-1 (white case) with Kailh Choc White switches. While I am not too into RGB I have to say that the colors look much better on a white case.
Group Buys and Preorders / Re: [GB] Fox Lab - Leaf 60

Hey Senter, seeing a build stream tonight of a Leaf80 has me a little concerned. There were lots of switch alignment issues and even caps rubbing on the wkl blockers. The images of the Leaf60 proto looks like the seams around the caps are tight too. Is this something that has been addressed since the 80 group buy?
my leaf 80 didn't have any of those issues at all, guy probably either just got super unlucky or maybe something happened during shipping? i wouldn't personally be concerned, i haven't heard anyone else complain about any of these things either

I'm trying to write out the specifications for a keyboard. Doing my research, I've come across this term 'hot swap-able' that means almost nothing to me. I use a bluetooth keyboard and although I'd love to use it as a KVM switch, that capability doesn't make it hot swap-able.

I've seen where people are in the habit of swapping out switches but that hardly constitutes swapping out something while it is in use. Hot swap-able means just that, replacing a defective part while the device is powered up and in use. Swapping out a battery while another battery carries the load and the device is still functioning fully --- that's hot swap-able. What am I missing?

Thanks for the help.

The space bar is replaced with a small key so that it does not get in the way when the thumbs press C to comma (if it were QUERTY), their new main row. The thumbs reach seven keys easily and two more (LAlt, RAlt) half-decently.
Nice hack :)

maybe too similar to hyperfuse? In reality the alphas would be an instabuy, to combine them with that set.

Just fix this in the alphas set, bacause otherwise it is unusable, add:
R2 <>
R3 #
R4 \|
F J with bars

These are fair points, I'll see if I can get the additions made and added to the alpha set.

thank you! and good luck  :thumb:
this color way reminds me of Coke w/ vanilla lol  :D
