I'm not "going to" Deskthority....I don't post much there. I was making that reference to Ripster because I need to ship Hoggy his keyboard, and the keyboard correspondence was conducted on Deskthority.

Hope things work out for you Input Nirvana, and hope you'll be back at some point.
You probably won't even see this, hah, so probably talking to myself, sigh.  Oh well...

TexasFlood-

I'm subscribed to this thread and have notifications turned on, so I'll be alerted when someone posts here, or when PM'd on GH. I'm not 100% off, but about 98% off. There are half a dozen threads that I have my finger on (Kinesis custom keycaps, etc.). I was planning on my time on GH to decrease drastically as I got into the final stages of the Kinesis customizing, which has accelerated this year. A lot of options and people with ideas became involved. At some point most projects get maxed out. The custom split Kinesis has always been my primary, but I've had a few major sideline items come along during the almost 3 years I've been monkeying around with it. I've bought and sold a Datahand, made some solid acquaintances, learned quite a bit (some of it actually valuable), learned about forums, etc. I'll probably kick in here in a few months with some targeted searches to see if something has popped up that applies to one of the many facets of the Everything Kinesis Advantage project. I was about to redo the article with the new title so it appears in search engines....but maybe someone can take that over for me.

As far as some of the changes that have occurred to me recently, some of them have been brewing/building for a couple years...so I need to regroup, make a 5-10 year commitment to a geographical location, pull in any contacts I have left, make new ones, and bust my ass to get something started. I'm 48 so my time is relatively short. I've got to make a lot happen in a short amount of time, or I'll be homeless and eating Alpo at retirement age. I'm highly talented and am a soldier for most things, but I still can't weather much bad luck or take too many risks. I need to find/create some opportunities with some great people, and use resources wisely.

I hope that some peeps still post any mods for Kinesis either here or on GH and maybe link in this thread. This article/discussion is a resource so others can see what has been done.

FYI:

The Kinesis wiki I've been working on for a couple years that was originally named "IBM Trackpoint questions" before I knew what I was getting into...I tried to copy the entire wiki article over to the "Everything Kinesis Advantage" wiki page I started a month or so ago....but too much reformatting/attachment is needed, and since I won't be spending much time here I just wanted to get it renamed now. So against the cautions on the edit page I went ahead and just renamed the article "Kinesis Advantage - Everything you want to know but are afraid to ask!"  to see what would happen. If it was all lost...oh well. But it seems that links still go to it...so maybe it's ok. The "Everything Kinesis Advantage" has a copy (that needs drastic formatting) just in case it all blew up. I closed the page so no one would post there. I didn't want it to crash like some scorched earth thingy. Sorry for the forum mess. I created a header on the "Everything Kinesis Advantage" explaining why it's there....maybe someone has a suggestion on how to handle it. I'll deal with it at some point. Or not.

Noticed a bit of my work in there from back in the day in an intermission entry.
It's obviously keyboard related so on topic, :wink:

Yeah, the Wiki SW blows.

I just copypastad everything to my subforum for better user experience and more control.

Got a link to your offending boobs pic?

I wish...it wasn't specifically boobage, just a girl in lingerie. It was neat, reminded me of someone I went to school with, or got a lap dance from. Whomever deleted it should return it. It isn't their property. Everything I've posted is not in the image manager.

Maybe I should ask for a subforum and just have my one article there.

Thanks, I feel the love. The only love in a month.

I've posted more today since I "quit" yesterday than in the last 6 weeks. LOL But I did finally respond to Mkawas PMs to say what I really thought of this moderation fiasco.

I pm'd imav. For future reference.
But if I move my Kinesis wiki to my subforum...it won't show up in web searches, is that correct? I don't want that...it's for peeps that want info on the Kinesis Advantage. When I came to GH 3 years ago...there was nothing on the web at all about it, except a guy that painted the keycaps. So I wanted to clean it up and have it a resource that is accessible.

I tried the Summer os 2012 Cherry Switch tester...and the ergo clears definitely have merit with the Kinesis Advantage. Interesting. I had thought about using ergo clears on thumbs...but I would need more time. I had the tester for a few days, it came at a bad time for me and I didn't get totally 'into' the switches as much as I needed to.

I notice when I click on the "Kinesis Advantage - Everything......." thread header when it is in the right column (meaning that it's the last thread someone has posted in for that subforum) I get a notice that says I'm not allowed to have access. Then I need to open the subforum and select the thread from the list of all threads. I think I may have read about this somewhere before.....sound familiar?

Thanks all you guys. I've received some really nice supportive pm's and even a couple offers of help. Extremely cool. I'll make it...90 days to regroup and fix issues, moving on to new opportunities.

Ripster, your avatar rocks!

Hahaha! Yea, that's good.
It was a Mkawa and Reaper tag team. Communications from Mkawa. Not sure how the whole system works. Don't care.

Hey, I don't post much these days, but I will keep subscribed to your wiki, as well as my own. Please do the same, I need you in the "Adding extra keys" article discussion!

Another thing I noticed, perhaps we finally have a Kinesis employee posting at GH? Says to contact tech support for leftover blank Kinesis keycaps sets.

Hmm, maybe it's not a good time for you to leave after all :-)

That is a pic of the same "smoke" case Rick (from Kinesis) sent me, that I in turn posted in my wki, under the "Gallery" a few months ago. Rick also tld me about the several sets of blank black key caps they found, somewhere between 5-15 sets. I mentioned that somewhere at some point. I would have grabbed at least one set, but I want PBT blanks (the Kinesis deserves this), and, considering us guys, there will be more than the "standard" number of keys anyhow :) So it must be Rick!

As I mentioned a few months ago, as the Kinesis project winds down, my involvement on GH will also. There has been a lot of movement on customizing the Advantage the last 6 months or so, it's almost maxed out...until Kinesis pops out an upgrade!

Later this year I'll have pics and more details when I re-assemble my split Kinesis. I'll have to make a chair-mount for it, since I had to sell my Datahand and chair-mount last month.

I'm about to start looking into a start up...if it could be with customizing Kinesis keyboards I'd be set! I've had some drastic changes that I need to make similar drastic and productive changes to counter. I want to stay in the bay area, so now I need to network from stone cold and see whats out there. I may need to have 2 businesses to try and make up for all I've lost. If it becomes my lifestyle, it'll be easier than just a job.

So I'm still available, but moving on with life and getting into a more involved and productive phase. I regret some of my actions on GH, but I forgive myself my indiscretions...we all make mistakes.

I'll put the wiki in my subforum so I can mot have posts/pics deleted at whim. Hopefully renaming this wiki didn't cause any problems, but I'm clicking on it sometimes and it doesn't link :(

I noticed one problem already: If I see this wiki in my Settings / substribed threads link and click on one of the discussion pages (to jump on the last page directly), I get a bad link like this, which doesn't include the title=Island:#### thingie

http://geekhack.org/showwiki.php?do=comments&page=15

So I have to click on the wiki title instead to jump to the main article, and then click on the last page of the discussion thread.

Something happened to the last wiki entry I made (it's not there) and now I don't have access to edit this article (?). I PM'd iMav about it so maybe it'll get fixed. I don't know if it had something to do with the changing the name of the wiki. So I dunno when/if it's repairable :(

Hey did you ever find out what happened to your subforum?

If it's gone for good I'll add a "double shot kinesis set" to my wishlist for you.

I asked iMav and he said that he was cleaning up member subrorums/etc, and deleted mine since it didn't appear I was using it. and assumed I wouldn't use it based on comments I made on Deskthority. He said he would reinstate my subforum. I don't know what I would have said on Deskthority that gave that impression. I said there and I did here, that my time is greatly decreased 1) because much of my Kinesis info is mostly wrapped up, and 2) I've got some life changes that occupy more time, and different mental focus.

So I'm not clear on everything else that happened, I know Ripster was banned, but I haven't read (and won't) all the threads/posts/misc. regarding the drama. It is what it is, we all make our own beds. Plus...see my explanation above about my time/focus. And, I have a stalker! (I feel 95% better after going to court though). The only thing I really don't like that has been happening is the deleting of posts/threads. Big turn off, like a girl with B.O.

I just want to continue to work on m Kinesis thingy.

And thanks you guys, a lot of very cool PMs have come my way. It's nice to feel the love  XOXOXOXO

BACK TO KEYBOARDS!

Is GH being 'locked down" to prevent dissent/arguments/deletions/misc? I'm not very forum experienced.

I dunno such stuff!

There was a minor case of wiki vandalism, which might be why we can't edit these. No idea who's supposed to be approving edits, or if it's just a temporary measure, or a mistake, or whatever.

Ahh...maybe that's it. Drama. I've had enough of that for a loooong time. If I don't get access, I'll find out if it's everyones wiki's. I don't have the time/energy to re-make it, and if I did, I maybe wouldn't be able to edit that either :(

Wishlist!

I'll see link in a couple mins. I'm downtown and just got something going on with a mid-late 20's very light blond, about 5-2 with a perfect body (like a coiled spring!) killer high heels and form fitting 1 piece dress/skirt. She should be in magazines. PYI: That was my opening line.

I miss Doodle so much. My greatest sadness :(

 EDIT---- Once her group showed up 15 mins later.... the "moment" was diminished. But her glow was worth the time.

Saw the wishlist....looks fun :)

I'm still thinking I need to see blank PBT keys, maybe from SP, since I have all the key profiles are known. I STILL don't have the source for all the key profiles in PBT :(

you can guess that there was probably a wiki scramble to prevent ripster from ripping wiki content off of GH, it's prolly fixed now, btw why's it gotta be a wiki? this thread seems fine enough to me. (or is this thread actually the wiki? lol)

I have no idea what's going on. Been too busy to review threads here or on Deskthority. I don't want to either, I've had enough BS in my life, I don't need to hear about what may be happening here. I need a break from crap :) So you've given me more info than I knew. I personally don't care if anything I've done is copied, that's the point, to share the info, so if that's the issue, I don't care about that. Besides Ripster is not ergo/Kinesis so his interest in my wiki as a whole is most likely minimal, other than perhaps an interesting tidbit or two.

I just wanna work on my Kinesis wiki whenever. It's not an urgent thing, I was posting a pic and a link about Sordnas mod, and I got locked out. LOL. I'm not cruising the whole forum anymore, I just get notified when someone posts in this thread.

Speaking of which, I'd like to see some more of what you've done, I was going to link in this wiki to yours, mostly due to the radical nature of your mod.

Wow, I get busy for a month and it seems like all sorts of drama breaks out. I hope all ends on a high note and the Kinesis info keeps up. I'll try to contribute what I can as my project gets underway.

IN: I'll add the thanks for all the info and help you've provided on the Kinesis front.

Yo! I haven't been able to hit your website lately...very busy getting my life back together.

I have edit capability again, and am going to add a couple pics/info/link of Sordnas palm button mod. I'll deleted some fluff that is messy as well. I'm currently pressed for time but would like to do a couple things we had talked about with the controller info and a link to your website. I feel that is very valuable and could be of service. Let me know!

So, I managed to to add a trackpoint to my kinesis. I posted over in the keyboard forum, but it might get moved/deleted.

Ya, whatever info you need, let me know. I should be at the tail end of my crazy busy schedule now, so hopefully I will be putting some more time into this project soon.

I had a sig once but it's gone. It used to display an icon of a Kinesis. Just imagine that.

No, that's not him. That link is for a guy here in the bay area. I posted on that as "GG". Bluecar on GH also posted there.
 
I'll post Uberbens website shortly....if he doesn't do it first.

It hasn't been updated in a while as I've gotten real busy, but I'll be back at it in the next few weeks.

Looks like the info/pics have gotten borked due to the site going down. I'll rebuild some of the wiki later. :(

I don't know all the details of the attachment situation. I think the situation changed from what what thought originally, so I'm confused. I have not followed up with anything. I see some 'archive' forums and such, but I have not had the time to see what it's all about. Soarer backed up all my attachments, so I have a 4-5 of your pics that I used in this article, and I have another couple of yours as well, but that's about it. It is not at all inclusive :(
