Weekly Update - July 18, 2019

General Update - I'll be away from July 25th to August 9th. I will be at the Seattle Keyboard Meetup - come find me to grab a CannonKeys sticker! And after the meetup, I'll be on vacation.

Any orders placed between July 25th and August 9th will ship upon my return. All orders placed up until July 24th will be shipped before the trip!
