You know you're a nerd when...

So, I've had a blank Das Keyboard for a while now and I really enjoy it.

Because it's essentially a standard PC keyboard the Control & Command keys needed to be swapped, easy enough... System Preferences, Keyboard, 'Modifier Keys' and specify the swap.

There were a couple issues that annoyed me and I finally fixed them today thanks to an oddly named piece of questionably supported software :/

Aside from my initial doubts the reality is actually pretty good.

I printed some stickers, overlaid some packing tape, cut into small squares and applied to the keyboard.   Partially because I kept having issues finding the right symbols, #, $, etc.

One of the issues is where the 'PC Key' is located, another is where the num-lock is and the equals key doesn't work on the 10-key.

And for good measure I added some frequently used apps to the first few F-keys, I love having a Panic button  :P  
I likely add more later if I find I like using them, I have been using them today.

Well, if anyone has an original Das Keyboard and are using on a Mac here is the XML file I made for the specific things I wanted... it's still half baked, I will add / change some things as I use it more.

That's all for now, let me know you have any questions.

Color differences in Safari from Chrome and Firefox are annoying.

30 songs, tracked out on the new mixcloud app is kimd of awesome, but you can download a better quality version directly to a mobile device using a podcast app and subscribing to http://sunset2sunrise.net/mix.rss
