Fairly easy voting this month.

Thanks for keeping this going, katushkin :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Most difficult vote I've had here in a while  :-X

DIY ergo's always have a nice spot in my heart, building something you just can't get elsewhere. And I have to give props for handwiring, no me gusta.

Modding old ALPs boards will also always be another favorite thing that everyone should do.

And a Canadian Custom, the ****.


Nice keyboard everyone  :thumb:

I voted for the pilco but I'm surprised it almost caught the mech27.

We do - you got to the final and got some votes which is more than most people can say!

I usually vote for the strange one off custom builds and this time was no different, but of the three I'd rather own and use yours :thumb:


That said - congrats 27!
