Hello all, I purchased a Touchstream Dvorak last August in order to help with my RSI. It was a rough transition at first, changing from a mechanical QWERTY keyboard to a Dvorak TS. After the transition, things were great until the beginning of March, when my TS died on me. I've e-mailed support, but apparently I got in during "the move", and haven't heard anything back from them. Only the right half of my keyboard works now.

Since I've switched back to a mechanical keyboard, I've noticed that the pain in my hands has increased. I'm very upset that my TS is broken, and it's not just a matter of convienience, it's a matter of pain and discomfort. I've considered buying another, but given the current prices, and the uncertainty surrounding FW right now, I don't think that's the best choice.

I'm eagerly awaiting a fixed TS. Come back FW!

Hi Ben, have you seen Max's post about the same issue? He fixed it himself!

holy cow! Thanks for the heads up! I'm back up and running. As a lesson for all those with broken keyboards, even if the ribbon cable looks fine, break out the multimeter and run a continuity test on all circuits. If one comes up bad, then you should try a new cable!
