Posting with (not of) my new JD40 and my Nexus 7 tablet.

Yeah! A proper keyboard for my tablet!

Awesome to hear it was easy to do.  Was planning on hooking it up to my Nexus 7 as well.  :thumb:

I used this cable:

Works well, and is a good length for the purpose.

I used it as my daily driver for two or so months. It is not that hard to use as a main board, you just need to make a good FN layer.

I did order the case, I think I posted some pics in the case thread. I would take some new pics, but I don't have a camera (I have my phone, but that would be doing the case a diservice).

Where you been buddy? Welcome back!!

Glad you like it. :D

I actually designed it with gamers in mind, more than for typing. You can map your commonly used keys to any key you like, and even program macros, etc. Keyboard for one hand, and plenty of desk space for your mouse.

Internet issues basically. Geekhack was having some kind of conflict with my internet that made me think I was banned for some reason. I just recently noticed a picture of my old Poker on google images and though "wait a minute, if my keyboard is on Google that must mean I'm not really banned" Sounds ridiculous I know xD

That's an interesting layout... not quite norman, colemak, or workman but it looks like it follows the rulesish.

The grouping of numbers as keypad makes a bit of sense for data entry but would require some relearning for touch typing.

You've got all the action in the home row.   

I'm almost convinced that I could live with a board this size on a day to day basis.

Aahh, so that's what it is! I'd never seen the bottom before so I was lost. Beautiful board, buddy :) Looks great. The Hyperfuse blends so well with the steel, and your Clacks blend so well with the keycaps <3
