@hund This clean look is so gorgeous!
@Ghosty Thank you! :D
@hund Oh, woaw. This looks dope!
@ChrisTalleras Thank you! :D
@Drakfot It's a custom built keyboard. I call it the Black diamond because it's black and the case is called Diamond. :P
But I could probably help you find anything. :) What size are you looking for? 60%? 65%?
@hund Ah I see :) Well, I am currently using a Logitech K380 and am quite comfortable with it. But it is always interesting with alternatives. Not sure about what size it would compare too though, but something in that range so to say. Have any suggestions / pointers for me? :)
@Drakfot I have a billion pointers. :D You don't happen to have XMPP? Or are you on IRC?
@hund My shell should still be on IRC yes, let me check :)
@hund Really nice keyboard
@make Thank you! :D
@hund and underwear for mouse?
@whippedcream What a great idea! :D
@hund that is n i c c e ! is that a BDU i see in the background?
@archtoasty Thanks! :D No, it's just a regular jacket. I've always liked that kind of clothes ever since I was a little kid. :)
@hund I can imagine that keyboard in classes teaching you to use Vim. 😀
@maxigaz That would be a lot of fun! :D
@hund inga bokstäver/siffror?
@selea Jag hade inte råd med det. :(
Närå, kostnad var förvisso en faktor, men även tillgänglighet och valfrihet när det kommer till layout. :) Några av mina krav är PBT-plast, 1,3-1,5mm tjocka, Cherry-profil, ISO-Enter och eventuellt svenskt språk.
Och om du vill ha allt det brukar det kunna springa iväg en del rent prismässigt, om du har tur att ens hitta något.. Därav blanka. :)
@selea Just ja, dyesub eller dubbelskjutna legender är ett kriterium om det ska vara text också.
@hund looks good. I really want to make my own keyboard but ideas are still forming: ISO with an extra key in left shift (for § instead of $ in shells, change / to ¦ for paths), double height enter instead of tab (to shift-space) and capslock (gone), thinking about alt-gr (3rd symbols, including APL), compose( fzf style unicode selector)... dunno yet
@buckshee Thanks! That's a lot of very specific scenarios. Check out the QMK firmware and see what it can do for you.
@hund I really want to build a 60% with blank keycaps, like this! Where did you buy the parts?
@istvan Let's see.
@hund thanks for the links! A lot of stuff is out of stock, is it better to wait or find alternatives?
@istvan Do you have XMPP? :)
@hund not yet. Which provider/server do you recommend? Does linuxrocks have a server?
Ah, I did that, but I wasn't sure it deletes from the server as well.
@istvan [2/2] It's about $270 excluding shipping and taxes. I would recommend Gateron over Tealios though, you get more bang for the buck. Tealios is better, but price is $56 vs $14.
And if you're after a standard layout, how about a hotswap PCB? It costs $84 vs $34 (+ shipping and taxes for the S60-X since it's from the US). But you get per-key SMD RGB-LED with the HS60 V2 and you don't have to solder.
@hund Thnaks for all this super info! I'd definitely go with the HS60 PCB, KBDfans 5 degree alu case and blank PBT keycaps. I'm not sure about the switches. Is Gateron better than Cherry MX? I like my Browns, but wouldn't mind trying something different. Especially with a hot-swap PCB.
@istvan And if you are okay with a more standard alu case, you can probably shave of like $40 of the price for the case.
