Apple ⌘ Command Key
« on: Mon, 07 March 2011, 19:41:38 »
For any Mac users out there, proposing a white-on-black, window-sized (1.25 unit) key with the Apple '⌘' Command symbol. Honestly wasn't sure which placement would be best, so it's currently just centered, thoughts?



To pre-order, see the double-shot round 3 thread and vote:
COMMAND #
(where # is the number of keys you want)


Side note: also ordering 25 black-on-yellow 1unit keys with just the word 'LONG', for anyone that's interested, it should come out to .40 a key. (order-id, LONGKEY)

I can't open the svg, so what are the proposed colors? If it's a black-on-white deal I'd be interested. Anything else I might still be interested, just let me know!

I like the centered idea best, off center wouldn't look as good imo.

Can we do a group buy on women that go both ways? My girlfriend has repeatedly refused even if I've found girls that are down. SIGH. Life is hard.

I like the idea of both on the same key, though. But I think the command would look better on my white filco.

Let's see what Dr. Tobias Fünke has to say about the subject:

Tobias: You know, Lindsay, as a therapist, I have advised a number of couples to explore an open relationship where the couple remains emotionally committed, but free to explore extra-marital encounters.

Lindsay: Well, did it work for those people?

Tobias: No, it never does. I mean, these people somehow delude themselves into thinking it might, but...
...but it might work for us!

My bad, must have biffed up the SVG in my attempt to re-size/color-invert. Here's the original: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0c/Command_key.svg

Was thinking white-on-black but that could work too. Anyone else have a preference?

7bit suggested creating a discussion for any additional custom key requests.


For any Mac users out there, proposing a white on black, window-sized (1.25 unit) key with the Apple '⌘' Command symbol. Honestly wasn't sure which placement would be best, so it's currently just centered, thoughts?

That SVG is not suitable. It needs to contain the black stuff as one, or more  shapes, only!

All the white trash must go, man!

What is the height of the key? Filco height or Cherry height?

Updated the original post with a mock-up image of the key.

The order-id is 'COMMAND', e.g.
COMMAND 2

The SVG file for the command key is suspiciously large (more than 1 MB!!!)

There is an embedded PNG. This is not what we need!

No font and no embedded image files are allowed!

Sorry, there's some work to do.

Maybe Twitchy can tell you how it works ...

I'm off for holly days until Sunday 20th March 2011!

The vote-system will work without me. Just send your order lists to me, 7bit_vote.

You will get some statistics from time to time.

Don't ask 7bit or me any questions during that time. We will not answer!

There will be no update of payment status. Anybody should keep track of that themselves! It is sufficient to pay when I'm back again.

For questions, please read the first post in the main thread.

Have a lot of fun ...
