Thanks for this! Please share as many pics of the bottom parts as possible, this is what we usually don't see from OTD collectors. :D

would also love to know the story behind this guy:

Show Image

I'm pretty sure the 356C was just a prototype version of the 356CL. I say this because it was originally revealed back in 2009 in some photos from a meetup. Then some proper photos were posted the next month by the 356 series creator eungsam/danville (check out his photos on OTD if you have the time, they're some of the best keyboard pics out there). This precedes any images of the 356CL, but the design is clearly near-identical.

Bonus pic :



IIRC nasby has it, and it was an early 360C proto


bruh don't make me dig up the 356CL DGE posts

Thought some people may be interested in these. These are taken from the PDS section of OTD, which you need an account to access. For that reason I've uploaded them as PDFs/JPEGs. Originally posted by eungsam/danville.

The 356CL DGE manual should apply to 356CL/356.2/360c too - it's the guide I followed when I assembled my 360c years ago.

I knew he had a blog, but I didn't realise how much he'd posted there compared to on OTD :)) Looks like he had at least 5 DGEs at one point!

356-LS
"One unusual thing was that I did a raydent coating on the surface. At that time, even if it is not in Korea
There was a lot of money in the post-processing when nobody was doing.
It is not a pooh .. I just took a look at the S version after a long time and it was an old idea.
(The radiant looks a fairly high-quality surface texture and is also good at touch. 
I do not know, but I think it is one of the recommended after-treatment methods, in contrast to a very thin film)"




356-F
"Shafts + proto alu keycap + alpslike short-stroke proto spring
*After the alpslike springs are gold-plated with pressure springs, they have been subtracted very small amount.
F wrote on the bulletin that it means Female, but I read it alone 356 ****ed up"

For reference : 356F, 356LS
All these links aren't working for me :(

Edit: suddenly works after restarting browser.

Also, if anyone needs a translation I can provide some help.

Bit of an odd one, but I couldn't think of anywhere else to post this.

A while back it came to my attention (shoutouts to yui for that) that OTD was nearing its expiry date (27th March). We immediately started worrying that eungsam wouldn't renew the domain, for all kinds of reasons. It'd been 4 years since the site's last renewal, and it's a total ghost town at this point. I also have reason to believe that eungsam is entirely separated from the hobby at this point. It also didn't instill confidence, knowing that the site had already gone down for a few months sometime last year. While OTD might be a ghost town, it's still one of the most important sources of keyboard information in my opinion. There are so many keyboards, both custom and vintage, that you won't find documentated anywhere else. And even beyond that - OTD is the origin of so many trends that we see in keyboards today. The members there, along with the members of kbdmania, were the true originators of so many things. If record of their existence were lost, it'd break my heart.

Now, eungsam did end up renewing it. He waited until the date of its expiry, but he did do it. It's good for another 3 years. So, for now at least, this was done in vain.

Before he did this though, while it was still a very real worry that the site would go down, I started working on a scraper. And I did complete it. I've now got the entirety of OTD on my hard drive, with the exception of some sections I can't access (OTD Studio, and marketplace posts that are restricted by writing power). All images have been downloaded, and every post/comment has been scraped into a database that could easily be reconstructed into a website, allowing for full search capabilities. If a time ever comes when OTD goes down, and I want to provide this to the public - I will of course do all I can to remove/censor any personal information or photos of individuals.

I wanted to post this here just to let everyone know: 95% of the site's been backed up, there's no need to ever worry about it disappearing. Maybe nobody cares anymore, but I wanted to post just in case somebody does. I know I still do.


P.S Korean forum software from the 00s can go **** itself. It was a legitimate nightmare to do the scrape :blank:

Now, eungsam did end up renewing it. He waited until the date of its expiry, but he did do it. It's good for another 3 years. So, for now at least, this was done in vain.

Before he did this though, while it was still a very real worry that the site would go down, I started working on a scraper. And I did complete it. I've now got the entirety of OTD on my hard drive, with the exception of some sections I can't access (OTD Studio, and marketplace posts that are restricted by writing power). All images have been downloaded, and every post/comment has been scraped into a database that could easily be reconstructed into a website, allowing for full search capabilities. If a time ever comes when OTD goes down, and I want to provide this to the public - I will of course do all I can to remove/censor any personal information or photos of individuals.

I wanted to post this here just to let everyone know: 95% of the site's been backed up, there's no need to ever worry about it disappearing. Maybe nobody cares anymore, but I wanted to post just in case somebody does. I know I still do.


P.S Korean forum software from the 00s can go **** itself. It was a legitimate nightmare to do the scrape :blank:

Bit of an odd one, but I couldn't think of anywhere else to post this.

A while back it came to my attention (shoutouts to yui for that) that OTD was nearing its expiry date (27th March). We immediately started worrying that eungsam wouldn't renew the domain, for all kinds of reasons. It'd been 4 years since the site's last renewal, and it's a total ghost town at this point. I also have reason to believe that eungsam is entirely separated from the hobby at this point. It also didn't instill confidence, knowing that the site had already gone down for a few months sometime last year. While OTD might be a ghost town, it's still one of the most important sources of keyboard information in my opinion. There are so many keyboards, both custom and vintage, that you won't find documentated anywhere else. And even beyond that - OTD is the origin of so many trends that we see in keyboards today. The members there, along with the members of kbdmania, were the true originators of so many things. If record of their existence were lost, it'd break my heart.

Now, eungsam did end up renewing it. He waited until the date of its expiry, but he did do it. It's good for another 3 years. So, for now at least, this was done in vain.

Before he did this though, while it was still a very real worry that the site would go down, I started working on a scraper. And I did complete it. I've now got the entirety of OTD on my hard drive, with the exception of some sections I can't access (OTD Studio, and marketplace posts that are restricted by writing power). All images have been downloaded, and every post/comment has been scraped into a database that could easily be reconstructed into a website, allowing for full search capabilities.

Hiya! Here's a pretty + rare picture to grab your attention:



-----

Some of you might've noticed that, while otd.kr is still online, only the homepage is accessible. Maybe it'll get fixed in the future, but it's been like this for some time now.

This combined with previous periods of downtime has brought me to the decision to release otd_archive to the public.

I've started with the two richest sections of the website:

Album
Freeboard

Other sections will follow when I have time (reconstructing these pages is a bit time-consuming), but these two boards contain 90%+ of the posts from the site. More than enough to start with, I think.

The webpages are stripped of links (except for Album and Freeboard on the sidebar), since they would lead nowhere, but I've retained almost all of the original design.

Most importantly, the search bars found at the bottom of Album and Freeboard are fully functioning, so please use them! (and also pray that I won't have to eat my words when my server crashes)

Oh, also, clicking usernames will show you all of their posts on the board you're currently browsing.

-----

If you encounter any dead images there are two possible explanations:

  • I removed them on purpose. OTD was a very tight-knit community; members there often shared pictures of themselves, and of their family. I've done my best to remove all of the family photos and member's photos of their children, as I'm not sure how I feel about re-hosting such personal images. I've left some pictures of people - specifically pictures of the members themselves and keyboard meetups. If you have a different stance on this, I'd be open to hearing your thoughts - perhaps I'm overthinking, or perhaps I'm not thinking enough. I also might've missed some, since it's hard to manually filter through so many images without any oversight.
  • There's some ****ery going on. OTD was inconsistent when it came to handling images - some would have 'src="/folder/folder2/image.ext", others would have src="./etc", and rarely they would have src="otd.kr/etc". I've had to bodge this a bit, and I think I've handled all cases, but I could be wrong.

I say all of this to say - if you find a post with dead images or a dead thumbnail on the main Album browse page please let me know. Send an email to the address found here. Explain the problem, and include a link to the page in question.

Further to that, if you come across any other problems with the site, or any images that you think should be removed please contact me at the above link.

-----

If anyone has any requests, e.g a new search option, do let me know too.

-----

Lastly, before I go~

Total image count (without thumbnails): 77,833
Total post count: 58,345
Total comment count: 1,070,852
All figures are excluding sections I wasn't able to access.

Long live OTD. Since '08.

Absolutely amazing work Photekq! It is a shame that OTD is finally dead, but we are all very lucky to have you around to keep the legacy alive. Did you have any posts that stood out to you while going through and scraping the site? Would love to see what you may have dug up if anything.

Thanks to anyone who's commented or messaged me. I'm really happy to know that people will put the archive to good use other than just myself!

I've uploaded the files I used to do this task. This is only for learning purposes, or for people that were curious. Please don't use these yourself, even if OTD comes back online:

https://github.com/photekq/otd_scraper
https://github.com/photekq/otd_archive_site

Absolutely amazing work Photekq! It is a shame that OTD is finally dead, but we are all very lucky to have you around to keep the legacy alive. Did you have any posts that stood out to you while going through and scraping the site? Would love to see what you may have dug up if anything.
To be honest, while I have browsed most of OTD in the past.. I wasn't manually scraping this or anything, so I didn't have every page flash before my eyes.

I'll post some favourites here in the future, but for now I need a break from looking at OTD :p
