I guess technically my current setup is two Mini DisplayPorts, which might also be Thunderbolt? But also I can make HDMI work - I forgot I bought two HDMI -> DP adapters (the powered kind; the unpowered kind only works for downgrading DP -> HDMI) for use with my desktop but don't need them now after a video card replacement...

I've settled on Gateron Brown keyswitches. Tactile feedback but no audible clicks (which on Gaterons don't exactly match actuation anyway).

I was going to 3d-print the keycaps, but the one suitable model has an angled top that ends up fairly jagged even at .08 layer height. I may still print them if the cheap set I ordered doesn't work.

Diodes, charge controller and micro (atmega 32U4 arduino clone) inbound. I'm almost certainly forgetting something.

I got my variety pack of MX clone keyswitches from China. Aside from the noisy one, I can barely tell them apart. So I guess whichever is cheapest will be fine for my pluggable cyberdeck keyboard project. They'll also work as momentary switches for other projects, like the battery lamp that needs rebuilding with a micro doing PWM.

I wish GOOG would hurry up and kill email so the rest of us can go back to using it ourselves. Just like when they killed RSS.

I do like the visibility into the privacy protections in 70, and the browser is significantly peppier than , but I'm guessing a big part of that is starting with a totally fresh profile.

After bouncing around on @mhoye's blarg and watching the "state of Mozilla" talk, I'm giving Firefox 70 a try. My daily driver is Waterfox, which is roughly version 56, because addons... But I'm giving it a fair shake, and so far nothing has made me outright ragequit...

locals!

My group is starting a beginners-only 10-class series on Saturdays, 12:30-2pm, starting 10/19.

We're a very welcoming group for anybody of any race, gender, orientation, age, body type, etc. No experience necessary, and no high-level students to be intimidated by during this series (at least until you're ready), but after 10 weeks you'll be ready to train with the regular group.

If you or someone you know might be interested, DM me for details or with questions.
