If I am to practice soldering, where can I get some cheap stuff to solder on that I can try out?

A very thorough write up - thanks for taking the time :thumb:

I did laugh at gimp though, the rest tries to be objective or at least give reasoning but you hate gimp and that's that - any chance of an explanation?

You're welcome, glad to see some people read that wall of text.

I was trying to keep it fairly balanced, but yeah, Gimp is just...
I don't hate Gimp because it sucks, it doesn't, it's quite capable.  I think the reason Gimp annoys me (and others) so much is because I should know how to use it to do what I consider basic functions, but it seems like some of the steps,  icons and names, were changed just to be different, and while change can be good, change for the sake of change is often not, that's how we got Windows 8.0. I'm not opposed to change, however I'm a firm believer in that if I can run Windows, I should at least be able to do basic work if I get on a Mac or Linux. Same with photo editors, if I can use Photoshop, Corel, Paint or, I should be able to use Gimp, but it just fights me on every step (I feel this way about IOS too). Maybe what I consider basic isn't so basic.

There is actually a modded Gimp called Gimpshop that alters it to work more like Photoshop, I thought it had been discontinued, but I just found it again, so I maybe give that a try.

Just wondered if anyones boards have shown up? I don't seem to be able to use my tracking code anywhere so no idea if the board is on the way actually. EMS tracking just doesn't seem to work at all.

use either 17track or even your local tracking service (like USPS, or in my case I used the swiss post's service... they're intl tracking nr so should work on multiple platforms)
Yeah none of that works for me, possible my tracking number is wrong?

1. PBT Keysets with GMK levels of quality. Seriously - the Koreans are doing double-shot PBT with the richness of ABS colors. Look at the new Leopold keysets. This doesn't bode well for the future for ABS. People say that ABS vs PBT is subjective, but honestly PBT is denser, doesn't shine nearly as easily, and doesn't discolor. Now that PBT can be manufactured in a doubleshot process with the same richness of colors as ABS there is no argument to continue using ABS. The industry just needs to adapt tooling to the latest doubleshot PBT process.

2. Better solutions for using MX keysets on Topre switches. We are 99% of the way there, just need some refinements in stabilizer support which the Realforce RGB TKL has solved (releasing in 2018). The Noxary XRF could be the best of both worlds with support for both Topre and MX keysets. The market doesn't exist for Topre keysets - we barely meet MOQ on MX keysets. Better to standardize around the MX stem (frankly an industry standard) and just adapt the Topre PCB to use MX sliders using a plethora of available options (many of which can be improved upon but which exist today with no wobble or other issues except for stab support).

Got my tracking, thanks for organizing!
