This looks like a neat project:

The 60% layout is exactly what I'm looking for, and the ability to make my own layout!

They updated their 1995-era design!

Such a shame :-( It had a charm to it...

Yeah, I liked the old website, too. I like websites that are highly functional, easy to navigate, and pack it all into a tight space.

Oh man, with the GBP dropping relative to the USD, I might have to buy something from them again.

haha, not just dropping relative to the USD. Just dropping, full stop.

yeah, i know.. but only one relative price matters to me--gbp/usd.

anyway, i don't really need another keyboard. i got a keyed-up labs tenkeyless with cherry clears that i love, and it made me fall out-of-love with my filco zero. the filco just doesn't feel sturdy and solid and satisfying in the same way.

i hate reference dependent utility.
