New Matt3o /dev/tty MT3 caps on my Mitosis #keyboard
The primary reason I got these was for the contoured profile and deep spherical concavity that feels very comfortable.
Outside of that, the legends are sub-optimal for me. No available set will fit my weird workman layout; I'll probably go back to DSA on this board until I'm touch-typing faster.
In hindsight I should have purchased three packs of blank keys instead of one full set of keys with legends. Oh well.
With a little modification to @whitequark's key-printing script I now have a scannable paper backup of my GPG secret key. Pretty cool!

Each barcode square encodes about 1.5k of data.
Here's a little piece of code/art that's been on my mind for years, that I never got around to attempting. Luckily somebody else did it first and shared the source code, which I just stumbled across.
Unlife runs Conway's Game of Life backwards so you can create a start-state that eventually produces an arbitrary desired state.
Updated my Mitosis layout and shoveled lots of words into the readme! 🎉 https://github.com/datagrok/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/mitosis/keymaps/datagrok
😮 here's another Casio PCB-replacement, this one for a calculator watch. The author reports ✨5✨ years of battery life. And it's got a heckin' ham radio built-in! https://goodwatch.org
These two modded watches, one with a reverse-polarization LCD hack, in front of a GPD Pocket! This is just pornographic 😳
TYVM @rrix for the link!
🤔 The circuitry inside a Casio watch isn't too complex, maybe I could measure it and manufacture a replacement with more features.
Oops somebody already did it! Way better than I would have!
The "Pluto" watch, which re-purposes the case and LCD from a Casio F91-W, includes a compass, infrared programming, RTTTL ringtone (musical) alarms, generates RFC 6238 one-time passwords, open source, and runs for a year on a standard watch battery! Wow!! 😮
more cybrepnuk than Pebble imho

Remember the scene in Doctor Strange where The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) blows Strange's mind away by introducing him to the astral plane?
The music video for Orbital-The Box was my first exposure ever to electronic music 22 years ago and similarly blew my mind away. Who stars in it? TIL: Tilda Swinton.
TIL the "Fourier" 40% split row-staggered #mechanicalkeyboard. $20 for a kit of PCBs+passives (bring your own switches, caps, cables, pro micros)
If you like the form of the Mistel Barocco or the Kinesis Freestyle Edge but want fully programmable DIY
I want to tune http://mkweb.bcgsc.ca/carpalx/ to take into account the fact that keycap sets usually accommodate only dvorak and colemak alternate layouts. Can't make a Workman board with this set of alternate caps.
[No I don't; if I'm touch-typing properly I shouldn't be looking at the keys anyway]
Wow! Here's an (arbitrary) #fitness milestone I never imagined I'd actually achieve:
As of today, I can bench-press 5x5 (5 sets of 5 reps) of what I weighed when I was 22 and skinny.
And I can squat 5x5 of my *current* body weight!
And I am, for you connoisseurs of understatement, not a small man
tldr I just squat myself
🛎 website update: still lots of things to fix (thanks to lots of great feedback) but I finally got my <nav><ul>s to display with `tree`-style hierarchy lines. 👌 Based on a CSS-only technique by Khoa Ma: https://codepen.io/khoama/pen/hpljA
- more readable font weight (todo: make configurable)
- don't link to empty nodes
- don't reserve space for TOC when no TOC exists.
My freshly-repainted static website isn't nearly done, but it's close enough that I hit the upload button! https://datagrok.org
- Most of the content needs a once-over
- Some features don't work yet, including toggling the navigation sidebar.
- I'm proud that I made it degrade gracefully to be usable in lynx, phones, wide screens, & no js
- I'm discouraged that it took so damn long to achieve this little
- It doesn't speak well of my frontend skills; need to upgrade to modern tools and automate deploys.
While traveling I let my fingertips stray upon someone else's mechanical keyboard, resplendent, adorned with MT3-profile keycaps, and the memory of its shape beguiles me.
Would that I could dismiss it as unattainable fantasy, but woe betide me! For I have just learned Massdrop has a new MT3 group buy open right now.
I committed long ago to a beautiful Oblivion SA profile keyset but we shan't be together 'til the summer and my cursed fickle heart wanders.
Good morning Nashville
Realizing that this IBM PS/2 Model 25, priced obscenely outside of our family's budget, that a parent obtained anyway for their university coursework, was for me what the BBC Micro, Commodore 64, Atari ST, and Tandy 1000 were for older, richer kids.
I was on the cusp just before computers became both "easier to use" and harder to tinker with, and the number of kids who had self-taught computer experience upon entering university fell off a cliff. Astoundingly lucky.
omg it's so big
