  • This seemed to fix my problem too! Very happy to have my dactyl back in action!

  • Neat thought! It would be fun to poke around the problem If I had the rf tools to debug it. Maybe someday!

    And a double thank you! When I have some time I'll make sure to do my best to clean up my site! Often I'm all worn out after writing long posts I'll def miss some edits.

  • Thank you! (and thanks for holding back on grading my grammar x3)

    That's what I was thinking but was surprised that it was only the metal working and not the RF blocking material. Which Raised a possibility of it maybe having a directional antenna effect of sorts? It's still a mystery to me but definitely interesting!

    I would love to use an artemis board in a project like this, but audio streaming support for ble is not a supported standard yet, you might be able to use a head free profile to get some audio across but most companies write their own implementation for audio transport. It does seem like the latest bluetooth sig specs are including some kinda audio profile for BLE, it'll just take some time for adoption. The ESP32 worked for me due to it's support for the Bluetooth classic profile A2DP!

    As for my personal blog, I manage it myself and for this specific site I use an open source static site generator called Publii. It is sorta a hybrid between the wysiwyg of a CMS (Wordpress/Drupal) and A static site gen. The actual files and site are hosted using netlify. Basically website is built into static files and then those files get pushed onto a host (Netlify) all with Publii! Thank you for reminding me, I've been meaning to add that to the footer of my blog!

    Thanks for feedback,

  • Thank you! I definitely agree about USB's with tht anchor points.

    In my experience in assembly and usage USB connectors with 4 points of through hole anchor tend to be pretty solid, all our new designs (both micro-b and usb-c) use the hybrid pth/smd style connectors (afaik) where the usb lines are surface mount but the case has through hole (usually flush with pcb and not protruding) style anchor points. Everything USB-C we use here at sparkfun has the anchor points. [Pololu]("https://www.pololu.com/product/2586"] make some nice Micro-B breakouts with a small footprint that I enjoy.

  • Thanks! I've heard stories of people doing irresponsibly long i2c lengths and getting away with it I could do software serial over the i2c pins and still be able to use the qwiic connector I suppose, that would be my next direction if i can't figure it out. The firmware has gone through some refactoring since I last put the keyboard together so I'll have to check. I appreciate the input!

No public wish lists :(
