The PCBs for the #keyboard have arrived, and they look good. Almost all the keycaps fit. Except for the space, which is longer than I anticipated, because I made the gaps between the keys much smaller than normal. Now I can either dremel it down to size, or use smaller Alt keys — I will go with the second option for now, I can always whittle it down later.
Corne Keyboard, maybe the best-looking split ever!
they say that everything between your body and the ground is worth investing in good quality products; shoes, chair, bed; things like that. I definitely think that keyboards should be counted amongst those, especially if you spend a big part of your day interacting with it.
The idea of a split #keyboard does intrigue me, but I think I'd first like to try it out first; unfortunately I don't know anyone in my surroundings who has one. :)
#ErgoDoxEZ, the preassembled version of #ErgoDox, seems to be by far the split-design #MechanicalKeyboard best suited to my needs. I put a product in the official website's shopping cart and went through part of the checkout for shipping rates, and surprisingly shipping is free to Korea?? I'll be setting aside the funds and keeping my fingers crossed for a possible sales event. 🙏 https://ergodox-ez.com/

There also a couple of news about #qmk
I finally soldered up and programmed the 5plit #keyboard by OddRocket, and it works at first try. I still need to get used to this layout, as I'm not normally a touch typist, but it feels nice.

What's your preferred keyboard size for your main keyboard (that's also programmable)?

I'm collecting data for a future project. Please don't mind the ISO-layout in the example images, it's not relevant here.
