First 2kgs of honey for the spring! Hives are going well, two recovering from swarming last month have eggs and grubs, so the new queens mated. On track for hopefully another 10kgs by the end of summer

Think if had enough of keyboard building for a while. Finished up the Zealios V2 65g one with purple caps today.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

You naughty #cyph, we asked you to take down the words "Open Source" from your website since you are NOT #opensource #foss

You did.

It seems those words have somehow found their way back on the website.

Time to raise awareness again and try to make Cyph understand. If the fedizens would like to join the effort and leave a little comment on the issue, that'd be awesome!

Boost appreciated

I am not great at blogging or tooting, or updating my pocket friends in general, maybe I should just not?

big fan of radical left-wing ideologies like "compassion" and "treating people with respect"

Kailh box whites and alpherior keys abyssal in my first completed .io . Lots of fun to build.

Two musical discoveries at widely different ends of music this week. The HU, mongolian metal, and BlackPink, k-pop. Both lots of fun to listen to :)

Some more boards soldered and tested. Very Zen, but next project will definitely be wave soldered SMT!

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 stuff comes in :)

I have a bunch of extra 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!

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

And it's all together, now to build my custom layout with the wonderful qmk firmware a great free software project.

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.

matrix-synapse server upgraded! Should now be actually able to accept federated invites...
