Today my O-Rings arrived.
Here is a little Video which compare #ErgDox with, and without the O-Rings.

Only thing:
If I firmly press the O-Rings to the ground, they not have any effect. But if I flip them over the CAP, and press the CAP firmly to the ground, the O-Ring takes some noise away. 
Will see how long this work, or if the key get louder after some time.

Maybe better try a litle bit thicker one than 5,00x2,5mm. Maybe the 5,00x2,6mm (http://www.ir-dichtungstechnik.de/shop1/product_info.php?products_id=2646).

I have turn up the loudness on the video by 500%, so you can better hear the difference.

My Keyboard now is much more quiet than before. I think the foam rubber-way could also be a really gooy way. Think you only have to be sure, that the foam rubber is not too thik.

Please post a little rewiew, if you have install them.

Did somebody have experieces with using Short-Cut Macros on the ErgoDox?
For example:
I'd like to have a key which do CTRL+x

or returns another specialkey like → or Δ or Σ and so on.

Schau dir mal den Branch "partial-rewrite" von benblazaks Firmware an, dort gibt es ein KEYS_SHIFTED macro in keys.part.h. Das lässt sich einfach kopieren und anpassen als KEYS_CTRL (oder KEYS_LGUI für OSX).

Hab mir sowas tatsächlich programmiert und es funktioniert super :) Hier ein Gist aus meiner keys.part.h: https://gist.github.com/fre-sch/302fe577271f3851ee39

Assembling  - 
 
I had some trouble after soldering my ErgoDox.
Now my ErgoDox works perfectly. What was the cause?

Most of the time, Problems appear if there are some broken solder joints. Specialy the Teensy and the MCP solder joints are the one they make trouble.

By soldering, be aware that you place the soldering-tip on the Teensy-Metal-Pin, and aften they are hot (nearly 1-2 seconds) place it also to the solder-ring to the PCB. 
If both places are hot, place the solder an it will flow nicely into the Whole of the PCB and the Component.

See se Image for details.

Here a short Posting, only to show my #ErgoDox  assembling kit from Cezary (czarek oh deskthority.com) and some first impressions.

The edges of the case are not so smooth, so you need to have to do some work to got the case look higher quality. But I hear that Cezary go on with the development. 
Have not seen the current version of the case, but think he will work on it to got give it a more quality look.

The Blue one on the Thub-Block, ore only to be able to press those small keys without looking at them, so I doesn't have to taste 'which is the second-key from below'
The blue ones in Baseline are modifiers for another Layer. I use NEO as keyboardlayout. This has by default 2 additional Layers (have more than two, but I'm using only two of them).
The green one are also special Keys like Teensy, Esc and Ergodox ShiftLayers.

O-Ring 0.4 Euro-Cent per pcs.
Today I've looked for o-ring to got my #ErgoDox with #MX -brown a bit more silent.
My first knowledge about this is: You don't need special Cherry-O-Rings.
I found a german Webpage where R3m4yao write about the usage of normal sealing ring.
The price of those o-rings are between 4 and 6 Euro Cent.

He recommend this product on a german Shop:
http://www.ir-dichtungstechnik.de/shop1/product_info.php?products_id=3281
but you can also use this one: 
http://www.ir-dichtungstechnik.de/shop1/product_info.php?products_id=2644

If you search by your local sealing ring distributor, you have this requirements:

2mm thick
5mm inside diameter
Shore (see here: http://www.oringsusa.com/html/durometer_of_o-rings.html)

For an #ErgoDox you nead at least 76 O-Rings. If you order 80 of this kind (http://www.ir-dichtungstechnik.de/shop1/product_info.php?products_id=2644) you pay 3.20 EUR plus shipping.

Here is the Page where I got this Informations:

Here you'll find a #ErgoDox #configurator to adjust the #Firmware for your needs.

With the Button "Share Layout" you can share a Link to your Layout here. Please give your Layout a short, but good Name. If people here wan't to recommend or discuss your Layout, a short Name with Version Number will be fine.

I use the Initials followed by a Versionnumber and the #Keyboardlayout.

_Example: _
SaSu_0.1_qwerty
or
SaSu_0.2_dvorak

And here is one try to share my Neo-Layout:
SaSu_0.1_neo :

Massdrop helps people buy together as a group to get awesome prices for things they want. The bigger the group, the better the price!

I'm a programmer and love my #ErgoDox. But one thing I figured out by using it: Cause of the #splitted Layout the Spacebar is missed on the left side. Often if I move my mousepointer to a place in #Sourcecode, I need to insert a whitespace in the Code. Therefor i have to press a Thumbbutton on the right side of my ErgoDox.

Did you have this problem too? Which place would you suggest to place it on the left side of the ErgoDox?

BTW: I use "Neo" as #Keyboardlayout

Heute ist der erste Tag vom Rest deines Lebens... was willst du tun?
Introduction
Schon früh hat mich die Faszination PC erfasst und nicht wieder losgelassen. Seit 2005 bin ich seelbstständig im IT-Bereich. Zuvor hatte ich neben meiner Linux-Zertifizierung praktische Erfahrungen in der Linux-Landschaft, aber auch als technischer Projektleiter im IT-Bereich gesammelt.

Mitlerweile liegt mein Kernbereich bei der Webprogrammierung. Auf Basis meiner langjährigen Berufserfahrung, und meiner Neugier auf die neuste Technik haben sich viele Interessante Projekte und zufriedene Kunden gesammelt.

Ich habe ein Lenkrad mit Tempomat dort bestellt, mit der Bitte um schnellstmögliche Lieferung. Das Paket ging noch am gleichen Tag raus, und war ein Tag später hier. Vielen Dank, Ware ist zudem in beschriebenen Zustand und Funktioniert einwandfrei.

Ein nettes gemütliches Cafè. Der Kuchen und der Kaffee waren sehr gut. Der Preis günstig. Toiletten und Küche (an der kommt man auf dem Weg zum WC vorbei) machten ein sehr gepflegten Eindruck.
