    So I bought a new keyboard. I got really annoyed destroying my keyboards by spilling coke in them, so I went for the overkill option.

    So this set me back 170 dollars. Been looking for a true waterproof keyboard with Swedish layout forever. As in you know not those foldable ones that are total trash. I ordered mine with PS/2 contact. Small Chinese company that actually accepted me placing an order for just one unit and offered the layout free of extra charge.

    Thing is this is a rack mount thing so it has no underside, it's meant to be screwed into an internet kiosk or something. Flameproof, waterproof, you name it. So I'll have to mill a case for it. Will post updates of that process. Board is due to arrive this week unless customs decides to screw with me.

    I think it'll be pretty. :) Will probably mill a solid construction steel case for it.

    I sure wish I could see it! For some reason, no image is coming up on this end.
    Anyway, I have a Red Dragon gaming keyboard. I don't like wireless keyboards and mice, which saves on money, too. Oh, and I like shiny lights because deep down I'm a redneck.

    It's arrived. Now to make a case for it. Will post updates in my hobby project thread when I get to it, but it won't be until Monday at the earliest.
