ES, do you have an amazon link to that covered cable?

I sure do. Here you go.

I got my first little order from WASDkeyboards for my new QF Rapid Red!  :)
What was included:
  • red spacebar to replace the stock one with the "quickfire" branding
  • white Mac-style "Command" keys (I'm working on iMac)
  • blank blue cap to replace the FN key, which is working like on a Mac keyboard with the volume controls on F10-12
  • two orange blank caps to replace scroll lock & pause, which directly control screen brightness on mac
  • red cap with radial texture to replace escape
  • blank yellow caps for numbers 1-4, tab, left shift and left alt -> this is my Diablo 3 grip  ;)
My next plan is to order a 39-key ISO keycap set from wasd to replace all the letters, maybe in dark grey. We'll see.


I really like some of WASD's designs. I just wish they would make a move towards PBT material.

My last keyboard purchase before my fire sale.  I'm definitely keeping this keyboard, it's a Chicony KB-5181 with monterey blue switches in excellent condition.  I rank it among my top two favorite keyboards...can't decide whether I enjoy monterey blues or IBM Model  F springs more.

I don't think so.  I really like it.  This KB-5181 is going into my permanent collection.

the cherry key is too tight, i need to file it out or something. backspace is neat but it sounds bad on my poker. I think it's hitting the stabilizer bar or something.
GeekHack esc made the cut though :)

Neat!

Next thing to do: Get a full sized keyboard, fix up the case so that only the 60% space is open and drop in the Pi, a USB hub, and whatever else you need to have single component computer!

That'd be pretty sweet! Maybe I'll fashion some sort of wooden case to hold everything. Also need another HD cable, only have one I'm stealing from my dual display. And I am stealing my room mates phone charger, going to need to find my own I suppose.

This is my thought every time I look inside a Dell AT101W, there really is space for a full computer inside that upper portion of the case.

Well I remember seeing pictures of Italian Red Filco full set keyboards on the Internet a while back and really liking them, but of course not being able to find one for sale anywhere. I never thought I'd own one, and this being tenkeyless as well makes it all the more special , I think. Either way, I feel like a kid again! Now if I had the money for and could find a red cc key and a nice red key set, that'd be amazing!
