The custom keyboard community has grown a lot recently, so I figure there's at least a few of you guys interested in it. Here's my recent budget build as I await my M-65B from RAMA. Excuse my terrible typing

took off my esc key like a year ago and lost it. 

bit of tape and a carmex cap works well enough for me though

When did compact keyboards become popular, do y'all not understand that num pad > top row numbers

Most likely started around the time the HHKB and similar keyboards started blowing up. It was quickly adopted by "gamers" as it leaves loads more room for your mouse/mousepad; I had a tiny desk at the time which is one of the reasons I had gotten one. They're also popular in the keyboard community because they're insanely cheap to manufacture and have a somewhat universal tray mount design that lets you swap parts as you please. They make external numpads for those that can't give them up, but after spending time with the layout, it's not a huge issue. I recently switched from a 60% to 64% layout, getting my arrow keys back, but I still find myself using the shortcut for them instead of reaching over most times.

Steelseries APEX M400. Have had it for a few years now but it's still serving me well. Goes well color-wise with the g502 I use mapped to blue.

I needed a numpad because I can't live without one so I built this Duckboard. It was pretty cheap and it's pretty cool. It has a rotary encoder that's currently set to change volume but I might change that to something else. Not sure yet. I'm also not sure what I'm going to set the extra key to. It has RGB but I'm going to just keep it at white. I would say that it was a pretty fun experience and that it came in pretty quickly. I am happy with it. OH, and it has a cool OLED display that I can use for whatever I want. It currently shows what layer I have the board set to. Might mess around with that and see what I can put on it.
