Group Buys and Preorders / Re: [GB] HSA White on Black - Beige on Brown

I hear you don't have to fulfill a group buy if all the participants are dead.

Beautiful board. OP designed and sourced, then managed production, packaging and fulfillment. Discretionary item, so buyers can decide whether or not to buy. Or to run their own GB. Lots of options, no need to complain. Besides, would you buy it at $600? How about $500?

Is the issue pricing or your ability to swing it? Personally I think the board totally rocks and I wish I had the funds to get one. But no way is OP to blame for my situation. And no way I would snipe at anyone buying this.

tl/dr: h8rs gonna h8. GLWGB!!!

To partially derail the off-topic topic for a moment, I come from the generation that was astonished and appalled about pollution.

Not that it has gone away, or that the two are not Siamese twins born from the same evil, but, as a topic, "pollution" has been dramatically pushed into the back seat in recent years - as if there is only room in the headlines for one major conversation.

Making Stuff Together! / Re: ADB to USB keyboard converter

i was talking to casualdehid (discord voice chat), and for his hungarian layout, to get "=" from the number row, he presses "shift" + "7"

Interesting. He can't get  '=' with the key in Hungarian layout perhaps, but I beleive he can get it in US layout.

I updated prebuilt firmware and changed default keymap a few days ago, the key is assigned to keycode  '='(EQL) instead of 'keypad ='(PEQL) now.
With the latest firmware he can get character '=' on Windows, as long as he use US layout on the OS at least.
I guess the '='(EQL) emits character '' in Hungarian layout, though.

But I still don't understant why he get character '5' with the key.
Debug prints and more detailed info from him would be needed.

i was telling him about how the layers & such work. he was hoping to use the power key on the AEKII to cycle toggle through the layers... something like, tap once for layer 1, tap twice for layer 2, etc.... i said i didn't think that was an option, and suggested the "action_layer_tap_key" to get dual function keys so he didn't have a handful of dedicated Fn/layer keys.

i believe he is starting to figure out what all the different options are and how to use the configurator.

In default ADB covnerter firmware Power key is used for special function 'Magic keys', you will have to build firmware to chage the configuration if this prevents you.

@hasu, with international layouts, is there a way to specify a specific character that's not already in the keycodes?
https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard/blob/master/tmk_core/doc/keycode.txt

instead of "KC_" could you specify the scancode instead? or would that not parse correctly because it's a different format or not a variable the firmware is expecting?
Hungarian layout   http://kbdlayout.info/kbdhu
the Hungarian scancodes    http://kbdlayout.info/kbdhu/scancodes+scancodes

Probably you can do both but I think it is not that good idea.
I don' t have plan to add code names specific to international layouts. As you know USB specification uses QWERTY US layout by default.
In French AZERTY you should use KC_Q for 'a' key and KC_A for 'q' with TMK, for example.

You can swap definitions of KC_Q and KC_A with C-preprocessor trick probably, but I think it is just confusing for people who already know how USB keyboard works correctly.

I didn't think i was "sh***" on it, (becasue i wasn't, notice how nothing negative was said or implied about it...) just trying to make the point that  "ergo", is nothing like this. The only thing they share is the same designer. And by "copy" i meant more "use an inspiration". You know. a 65%- 75% with 1 column of macro, and big bezels. Which is all this is... there is nothing especially unique about it.
I didn't mean taking the exact specs and measurements and everything. If someone wanted to "copy" exactly, they would obviously have to ask for permission 1st (if not legally, then morally).
I see absolutely nothing wrong with what i was putting forth: Someone else running a GB for a similar board, inspired by this one. I can't imagine why someone who doesn't want to release another round of something, EVER, would have a problem with someone doing a GB for a similar looking board.  And you have not given logical reason they should. There is a demand for something they don't want to provide. so someone else should.
*"Mate it's just a keyboard, move on, you will survive without it and there is a lot of amazing keyboards around."* Ummm.... Well duh. What a silly thing to say.. I'm well aware of what this is lil buddy, and i don't really care either way. This aint my "end game" as the kids like to say, or anything.  Just stating the fact that telling someone that wants THIS board, to "just support the designer" is silly and pointless.
*"(we had our second chance)" LOL! who is this "we"? You mean: The community at the time of the 1st group buy AND the 2nd group buy, had a "second chance." I think it's rather obvious that the majority of the people clamoring for this didn't even have a "1st chance" let alone a 2nd.
*"making another round after what he said would probably make mad someone who already bought in previous rounds," Sorry, but I simply refuse to believe the majority of people could possibly be that stupid.
*"  Not making things again, again and again made this hobby large and overflowing of different keebs and products."* It's not an "either, or" thing my man. And most keebs suck.
*"Just respect the designer choice to not make the keyboard again and again wtf,"* Simmer down. The designer can do whatever they want, I don't care. If enough people want a board like this, someone will make it.
"If you really want it just buy it aftermarket" I don't, and that option is not going to be around forever.
*" DIY something similar for yourself only. Na, i have plenty of my own keebs, if i was going to do that, i would do one for EVERYONE. Probably somehing a lot like this one, but with even bigger bezels! A wrist rest, and a knob. Different enough for ya? LOL! just kidding, i don't care after all that whining.

What a ****ing ****house post.

The only reason we "NOT" in an ice age now


I really do wonder what percentage is human-caused


It is all human-caused. The evidence is overwhelming. Only a Q-anon-level moron would deny it. Even the oil companies knew all about it decades ago.

https://www.greenpeace.org/usa/global-warming/exxon-and-the-oil-industry-knew-about-climate-change/exxons-climate-denial-history-a-timeline/

In the natural cycle it would be about time for another ice age about now.


It's also important to remember that fossil fuel use is a RECENT event.  It is a major contributor of course. 

However, the primary contributor to climate change is DEFORESTATION.   The primary driver of Deforestation is Animal-Agriculture,  90% of the deforestation in the Amazon is done to graze Cattle.


We've only been burning fuel for ~200 years,   We've been cutting down trees for 10,000.
