I want to store the factory configuration binary that is currently on my CTRL keyboard. Will the following command read the entire binary or only part of it? `mdloader --first --upload read_firmware.bin --addr 0x4000 --size 0x10000` (from the massdrop/mdloader README) I am not completely certain the compile and download function on the web configurator will give me the same result. Thanks

Putting classic Apple keycaps on the CTRL

The keyboard still works with an ancient MacBook Pro, but it won't pair with anything from the 2010s. That's too bad, because I think it looks pretty nice. So I decided to see if I could bring its essence into the 2020s by transplanting the keycaps to my Drop CTRL keyboard. Here on the left is a regular MX style keycap, and to the right one from the AWK2003. Not so different. Until we turn them over: However, the AWK2003 keycap will fit on a Cherry MX style switch, especially a Kailh box switch: But the fit is too loose. However, we can fix that with some teflon tape. Three layers seems to work well: And there it is: the Drop CTRL keyboard with 2003 Apple Wireless Keyboard keycaps: The keycap profile is a bit different, especially on the bottom row, as you...

40% faux pas? Would I be letting all of you down?
Hi all. So, I've got this brand new 40% keyboard in front of me. I'd like to think it will be easy to remember which character is on which key which is on which layer, but that remains to be seen. Would it be cheating and poor mechanical keyboard form to print out the layers on a sheet of paper and put it somewhere that is easy to see while typing? What about adding the layered characters to the sides of the keycaps?
