In their defense, there was a timeline set for the period of last week... And during that period, it was said "soon". I'm not trying to bash anyone, just stating that there was a timeline defined at one point, and Traveler isn't 'on' about anything.

Right… and in the meantime, another update has been provided and pictures of the completed prototype have been posted. Everything's clearly progressing, just not as quickly as the GB leaders originally expected. It seems pretty disingenuous to claim that there's been a lack of information and that details are changing out from under our feet, when the only detail that's changed has been when it will start, lol.

Ultimately I've decided to go with the Exent, unless something goes terribly wrong. And I guess if something does go wrong it'll be too judging by the lack of info that we currently have on this GB haha.

Wait is Exent going to be a Group Buy? Or will it just go on sale somewhere?

Group buy; won't be in a marketplace AFAIK (although any leftovers might end up on one). Fortunately not raffle style though last I heard. But details have already changed without notice about the group buy (like the drop date), so anything could happen.

Lol, what are you on about? What lack of info or details changing without notice are you experiencing? This is an IC, the entire point is that some things are still undecided. This is the latest update from juahenza. This is how community-run GBs work. :))

Group Buys / Re: [GB] FJELL

Blue is a very polarizing color, but it's not like purple isn't as off-beat.

Blue ftw!

Blue tries desperately to be valid and important as Purple BUT fails big time.

Let's see what Purple truly represents here;
 
  • Uplifts
  • Calms the mind and nerves
  • Offers a sense of spirituality
  • Encourages creativity
  • In Thailand, purple is worn by a widow mourning her husband’s death.
  • The purple in the U.S. military Purple Heart award represents courage. The Purple Heart is awarded to members of the United States armed forces who have been wounded in action.
  • In Tibet, amethyst is considered to be sacred to Buddha and rosaries are often fashioned from it.
  • A man with the rank of Roman Emperor was referred to as “The Purple” — a name that came from the color of the robe he wore.
  • In Japan, the color purple signifies wealth and position.
  • Purple was the royal color of the Caesars.
  • In pysanky, the traditional Ukrainian form of egg dying, purple speaks of fasting, faith, patience, and trust.
  • Purple denotes virtue and faith in Egypt.
  • In Tudor Britain, violet was the color of mourning, as well as the color of religious fervor.
  • Traditionally, in Iran, purple is a color of what is to come. A sun or moon that looks purple during an eclipse is an omen of bloodshed within the year.
Mace Windu’s (Samuel L. Jackson’s) purple light-saber in Star Wars.   He was the first Jedi in the movie series that was allowed to break away from the traditional blue/green light-sabers that the Jedi Order were famous for in cinematography.
This colour alone denotes so many important emotions and status in nearly every society around the globe so this is why PURPLE rules in this real world as well as with the Keyboard Casing Universe.

PURPLE is indeed unique and very sacred hence it needs to be included within any Keyboard Casing Design on Geekhack.

I don't think it's good advice to apply lube, buckling spring simply isn't designed to be used with lube...

Nonsense. I've fixed sticking keys on many Model M's by applying a sparing amount of plastic-friendly lube to stems and barrels, and have never seen any bad effects.

It's true that lube isn't applied to BS's at the factory (except on the Soft Touch, of course <g>). But saying they weren't "designed to be used with lube" is like saying that boards weren't "designed" for any mods or repairs using non-original parts or materials. If that were true, we'd have to shut down GH!

I doubt that would make any difference in op's case. I'd suggest comparing the innards of the keys, and spot any difference.

I was simply suggesting lubing as a first, easy thing to try. I'm not sure what you mean by inspecting "the innards of the keys". Looking inside the barrels? Or taking apart the whole board? The 2nd one's considerably more complicated, and I certainly wouldn't do it until it was necessary.

I'm just torn between this board and the RS2+ on MassDrop right now. My plan is to wait for Exent GB until the last day of the drop. If the GB doesn't open in time I'll do the other one.

 Can any one of you fine folk convince me one way or the other?

I had a RS68, and IMO, the PCB being used in the Exent is going to be much better - I disliked programming the pcb and feel that it is a little sub-par quality-wise when comparing to others out there now. I think the build quality in general of the Exent is going to be much much better.. Definitely more unique as well. I have since sold my RS68 and am definitely buying the Exent.

Odd, that worked perfectly! Thanks.

I an using dfu-programmer 0.6.1, so the command from the quantum tools is slightly different,
Code: [Select]
dfu-programmer atmega32u4 flash-eeprom eeprom_reset.hex rather than
Code: [Select]
dfu-programmer atmega32u4 flash --eeprom eeprom_reset.hex

woowoo!!! Yay my first reply to someone asking for help and I managed to help someone out  :p
