Mr. Rogers, (I've been waiting to use that for quite some time )
THAT board you created is VERY impressive! What tool did you use to cut the board? Very smart of you to think of radial corners! And the fabric is perfect: just the right weight, not slippery, strong threads and a "fine" enough thread count to be sturdy and not lose anything between the threads. All told, I'd say a perfect job!
For others who want to make something like this, you can also buy some spray on adhesive to keep the fabric on the top side of the board, while you are working on the bottom.
I haven't had much time to use my TB since I've run into a boatload of problems, both with the TB and other external issues, but I'd been wondering about being able to type on an "active" keyboard, yet that is just what I am doing. Since I haven't had much time with kt, all I had was a couple pieces of flat, corrugated cardboard. And, so far, it seems to be doing fine. Boy does it sound weird though!
I promised Mark that I would post my initial reactions, along with my trials and tribulations when I've overcome most of my obstacles, and I can type more normally, so you folks can look for that soon.
In the meantime, for those who have been wondering about my nails... I can actually type ON them on TB and most of the time, I'll actually get the key I wanted, which is pretty amazing! But because I had logistical problems, everything is taking much longer than anyone else. And add to that, when you first start out, you have to get use to where things are on here.
One more note about TReg: I got my unit on November 12th, and have used it only a handful of times total. It feels like no keyboard I have ever used before. The attention to detail is amazing and I am blown away by it. No more sore fingers from having to bang on the keyboard. Just be prepared for the learning curve.
And Mark told me that I got the latest everything as of 9 November. Including the pcbs.
DBK: North Carolina, qwerty, no sticks for bluetooth, Mac, iOS, WinXP (via virtual machine.)
Trace, forgive me for detailing your topic: I didn't intend on doing this.
If anyone has any questions for me, I'll get to them as soon as I can - many other things have first dibs on my time besides me and my time is not my own. If you ask, I'll share that with you too.
Thank you all for your patience with me.
