Saluton! My name is Flip, I slap a keyboard until interesting things happen

I am learning Esperanto (for only about a year now), I play and DM tabletop roleplaying games, I'm the good kind of anarchist, I fiddle with old hardware, and I dream of retiring as a cactus farmer

@flip That is a really nice keyboard. It would go well with your future cactus's. did you build it?

@liaizon in a way - it's an olkb preonic. These days the switches are hotswappable so there's no soldering required until you want to put a rotary encoder on it. So I built it in the same way you build something out of Legos... acquired the pieces and snapped them together

@flip woah so the kit comes with the usb controller already set up! interesting!

I just built a Gherkin from a kit but had to solder everything together. Though thats also like legos just hotter.

@liaizon Yeah, you get a PCB and case, pop in your switches, screw some screws, put on your caps, and you're done. It's great. I've made several keyboards, really appreciate how simple it's gotten
