Be careful when wiring USB cables

And make sure you don’t wire them backwards, or else you might get a funny smell and little wisps of black smoke leaking out from your keyboard.

On the bright side, having to order a new PCB means I get to build a 2nd keeb from scratch :grin: I figure that I can just buy a new cap for this fried PCB and that should get it working again.

Looks exciting. For myself, I had a simple plumbing job today replacing a faucet cartridge. Only took 3 trips to the hardware store.
