I got sick of looking at the cabinet, and not working on it, so I splurged a bit.
I ordered new T-Molding from t-molding.com, and it looks really sharp. I couldn’t believe how chewed up the old molding looked next to the new stuff.
I’m also giving up on the keyboard hack. I’m getting a keyboard encoder from groovygamegear.com, a company I only recently heard about. Unlike ultimarc.com, they’re based in the USA, so no import taxes, and shipping is far less. A lot of people have recommended the IPAC2, but I like what the KeyWhiz offers.
