Fully lubed up stabalizers and my first go at hand coiling a USB cable. Stabilized keys sound sooo much nicer!
I'll be good till the #68keys stuff comes in :)
I have a bunch of extra #68keys boards, thinking of adding diodes and arduinos and selling as a kit, the costs are certainly adding up faster than I'd thought! But still should be a fun project! https://68keys.io/
KBD75 is absolutely a joy to type on! But now I know why people lube the stabilizers, mine are very rattley. Will get some lube from jaycar on Friday and attempt to apply to an already soldered board over the weekend 🤦♀️
Hey everyone, Sharesies is hiring a few intermediate / senior devs. I would LOVE IT if you applied. If you're thinking about it but you're not sure for any reason, don't hesitate to reach out with questions! Apply here https://www.sharesies.nz/jobs
Stage one done, ready for soldering! #MechanicalKeyboard
Hot take: We should aim for 'decentralized' networks that are simple enough that they can be understood and improved by lots of people.
The 'fully distributed, but only fully understood by a few people' pattern is unsustainable and tends toward a society where software developers are not representative of software users.
gemini://gem.pwarren.id.au/ is a thing now!
https://gemini.circumlunar.space/ for more info on the gemini protocol
My git projects now have the default branch of 'main'.
Aaand kbdfans shipping notification says my keyboard is in Australia!
I had an idea for an ephemeral public message space on #gemini, but then I thought about how to deal with brigading, hate speech, moderation. perhaps it's not a good idea after all
"So they're allowed to riot and I'm not allowed to shoot them?"
Yes, pretty much but it's 7am, I'm still working through my first coffee and I don't have the energy to deliver a lecture on just how supremely racist both the US and Australia are and what that actually means.
Well, I just spent more on a single keyboard just now than I've spent on input devices over the last few decades of computer use combined....
Why did I have to discover proper mechanical switch keyboards when there's next to no stock of anything!
black aluminiuim KBD75 with aliaz 60g, Maxxkeys Grey&Blue keycaps and some screw in stabilizers. Phew.
Got back in to my https://github.com/pwarren/rtl-entropy code again last night, lots of things to fix!
