Today's Work
« on: Wed, 28 August 2013, 02:23:26 »
For now, expect this to be a dumping ground for whatever work I get done as Klaxon, organizer of GBs and maker of cables, in a day.  It could be anything from a couple cables to a stack of boxes with keycaps in them, but as things evolve and work into place, this will be where all of D-Squad will show off their day's labor.

Paracord. 

Complete list in order:

white mdpc-x
dark stripes paracord/blue camo paracord
black paracord
stainless steel
orange paracord
royal blue paracord

In a few weeks, expect some spam with a refound sleeve.

What is the status of the backlog of cables? I ordered mine about 5-6 weeks ago and haven't heard anything since, and I don't think I see mine in the screenshots above (honestly I don't know because I don't remember what I ordered already).

That's micro USB? I though the yellow and purple one was micro USB? Or is that mini USB?

TJ,

Is this Navy & Beige or Black & Beige in this picture?  It looks like Navy & Beige on my monitor.

navy/gold

Looks very good.  I'm deciding on my next color.

May I ask what this one is for? Looks amazing - just wondering what the customer was looking to use a mini 4-conductor extension for (assuming headset).

Regardless, I'm drooling, and pondering what I can request from you. I've got a couple Ducky Shine 3s that need some love, along with a host of headsets.

Also - what's the lowest profile you have for mini 4-conductor phone connectors like these?

That one is for an audio thing of some sort, but yes, those same connectors are used with the ergodox interconnect thing as well.

That pic shows the lowest one that I've had success with, but I do have another that's got a smaller diameter shield.



You can request almost anything so long as I can get parts.

Hi I placed an order (#1223) for a 6 foot peacock cable on May 29th. Sent and email and PM and still haven't received the cable or any communication. Just wondering what's up.

Glad I checked, because I totally misread your email and had 6 inch...
