Real life sometimes gets in the way. By the time I finished the keyboard, my CAD needs had dropped dramatically. While mechanically the keyboard works great (great feel, sound, and location of switches), It had a few glitches in the firmware and a friend who filled in the gaps for me in that department had moved away leaving me to either seek out someone else to troubleshoot it or set it on a shelf until the the keyboard fairy sprinkles it with pixie dust. I just haven't had enough interest or need to do the former and the latter hasn't happened yet. Every now and then I bang out some mock typing on it. It feels so good I commit to getting it functional but too many other things seem have had to come before it.
Planet 6 has turned out to be one of my highest accomplishments yet, at the same time, one of my greatest failures. I hope to get back to it someday.
