Upcoming giveaway, vendor map disaster with takeaways, bong cat guest appearance, new discount codes, experiences of mailing 340 keyboard vendors.
Published on November 1, 2021 by KBD.news
KBD.news will turn one on 20th November so I started to organize a little giveaway.
3DKeebs, Mechbox, pkkeyboards and Rectangles.store already offered prizes and I'm in a talk with Coffeekeys and Khor.
The giveaway page is WIP, [for BMC members only]
I will set up an online form for people to apply – to prevent flooding the newsletter subscriptions.
I will end my weekly posts on r/mk
At least in the quite elaborated form I've presented them for the past year.
Sorry folks, but bots and even mods kept deleting my posts without any notice so I had enough. The time I spent with creating and posting these weekly summaries will come in handy for picking up other forgotten side-projects like the split database and the logical layout design series.
Vendor map disaster & takeaways
I worked so hard on this keyboard store map, had high hopes, but I'm not sure if I should cry or laugh now. Because the announcement of the keyboard store map was a complete disaster. I can't really imagine a worse introduction than what happened on Thursday. :D
I prepared everything, checked all the entries in my quite long todo list and published this new interface in its best shape and at the right time. But then...
This is exclusive or early-access content for my regular supporters (members) on BMC.
If you can't afford supporting this project, don't worry, I might publish parts of these write-ups later.
Cool week, again, there were some awesome designs, excellent ideas and well-documented projects – a lot to learn in general. Update on the vendor database: I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Issue 46 follow-up, on micro museums, etc.
