The worst thing on any keyboard for me is the dang caps lock key. Most keyboards have a large caps lock key (what the heck for???) and I accidentally hit it SO many times throughout the day, it just PISSES me off. Some manufacturers make a recessed area on the right side of the key so it's not so easy to hit. Déck didn't do this.
I just received my new Déck keyboard and tried it out on my test machine. I haven't had time to put it through any paces, but I like the way it feels. However, I already accidentally hit the dang caps lock key. Even though the blue LED tells me it's on, it just bugs the heck outa me. So, mad modder that I am, I grabbed my trusty X-acto knife and round file.
It's not the caps lock key I modded though. There isn't much I can do, short of a major hack job on the key. But Déck included some kiddie skull keycap (hey, I'm 55, what the heck am I gonna do with a skull keycap?). This key depicts exactly how I feel when I hit that dang key, so I decided I could use it instead of the caps lock key.
The skull key cap is smaller than the caps lock key, which means the extra blue LED bumps into the edge of it when you depress the skull key. Carve out a small channel, file it down and now I can see when the blue LED comes on and have the advantage of a smaller target. Simple mod for less aggravation.
Thanks, Déck, for a nice keyboard. Could you please think about modifying the caps lock key though? Surely I ain't the only doofus with large, ungainly fingers.
