Needless to say people don't even get #TechLiteracy taught in #School and so in 2019 I did met a highschool graduate on a dual-study/apprenticeship position who confessed to me that they've never ever used a #PC before.
A Tester68 with your switches and keycaps of choice + rechargable batteries is the best wireless keyboard experience you can get in my opinion. It's affordable and I can't stand having to plug in a wireless keyboard to charge so hot swapping batteries is where it's at imo. That's also why I use a steelseries headset.
I #3dprinted some new keyboard risers for my new @system76 Launch keyboard they sent me. It fixes my one and only complaint with this keyboard, that islts not high enough or angled enough with the feet. 5 hour print same as I made for the Launch Heavy pictured. Now my streaming, gaming, and workstation dual desktop setup is a little better.

They are a "dumb" appliance that doesn't retain actual data and only provides an interface to an actual computer that does all the computing.
🔬📺 New project in the lab: the IBM AS/400 system (pictured on the cart in the background) and its OS/400, localized into Slovenian. IBM provided terminal keyboards with special characters (anyone for F24?), and terminal support is also in place.

I'm streaming now! My raspberry pi is temporarily out of commission for #mastodon alerts, but we're building a new keyboard thanks to @system76 live on #Twitch tonight. We're gonna have a quick stream before I have to run to family for Yom Kippor.

I usually type on my Novatouch because it's such a nice keyboard. The nice and rounded tactility with the inherent soft bottom out from Topre, inherent N-key rollover from the capacitive design; the nice and compact TKL format; plus I have the option to play around with custom keycaps (and other mods).
On the other hand, I always have the urge to bring out my IBM Model M sometimes. The iconic look of the keyboard, the VERY iconic sound of buckling springs, the utility of the numpad, the nice and sharp tactility, and this keyboard being the one that got me interested in mechanical keyboards.
The Model M being the one probably sounds weird considering that I'm a zoomer that didn't exist in the Model M's heyday, but I remember seeing a "definitive" (not really in hindsight) video about the Model M and how cool it was. It got me interested in keyboards, which then led to me eventually getting one in 2019. Even though I eventually switched to TKLs for the sake of desk space, I still have a soft spot for this keyboard and its sound. :btr_bocchi_pray:
I made my own split #keyboard, and there are people other than me that have ordered it, I never thought it could be of interest to others but here we are!
@xoagray and since #Lenovo stopped making #ThinkPad #CompactKeyboard|s with #wired #USB and I need a new #Keyboard for the #NUCbook anyway, I guess I've to get in contact with #Sprintek and get some #SK8707-06 - #FlexPoint™ PS/2 Pointing Stick Mouse Modules...

I've been using Thumb-Key, a keyboard app based on messagEase (propietary and currently unmantained) for some days, and I'm loving it. It lacks prediction, so I have to write the full words and that feels clumsy sometimes, but it's free, open source, and privacy focused, and I love the layout and the general feeling of it. And i don't write less accurately or more slowly.
I started about a year ago with messageEase and got used to its layout very quickly. It felt refreshing to be using a keyboad specifically designed for the phone screen and not for a nineteenth century writing machine!
I totally recommend it. They even added emotis this week! Yay! 🥳

@system76 is sending me a second keyboard so I can build it this time. I think System76 may have noticed I only had one System76 keyboard for my 2 PC stream setup on #twitch LOL jk it’s a #review. Well time to replace the Corsair K70 and even save some space with a Launch keyboard for the stream box and keeping my Launch Heavy on the main Linux system… tempted to get another heavy for work as I like it more than my Das Keyboard Pro 6. #keyboard #opensource
I noticed one way the replacement #keyboard differs from the original.
The replacement has a plastic backing covering the whole keyboard. Probably good for spills and dirt not getting into the machine too easily?
The original only had plastic behind the motherboard itself - no backing where the fan is. This was not accidental; the fan could suck air through the keyboard if the bottom vents were blocked.
Better or worse? Should I have cut a hole in the plastic on the replacement?
I found the most devilish #keyboard setup ever:
- 100% 122+ Keys Keyboard.
- Trackpoint + Mouse keys (Like #ModelM13 / #EnduraPro)
- Transparebt woth black print or black with transparent double-shot keycaps.
- Every Key has a different switch!
This will mindfuck the brains of any #MechanicalKeyboard fan harder than anything else!
The problem may just be that I need to find 34 more obscure switch types that are still in production and even then I'd assume the cost to be > €500...
UPDATE: 85% of poll respondents thought I'd find something alive when I took apart my keyboard. I went over every square millimeter and found a moth, a small larva, and a leg. All dead. I'm just as stunned as the rest of you that there weren't thousands of mites. God knows there was plenty to eat. #keyboard #mac #apple #nature #computer #tmi
I want shorter games with worse graphics, made by people who are paid more to work less, and I’m not kidding.
think i reached #keyboard repeat/delay threshold today:
Delay: 175 ms
Repeat-Rate: 35 chars/s
quite fast/almost-but-not-too-fast cursor movement, no double characters.
thhis couldd be iit..

Trying my #Logitech K780 #keyboard on Linux tonight for the first time. Logitech hardware is nice but they force you to use their software to configure the simplest of things. I want to use the function keys as function keys and not media keys. Their software doesn't run on Linux 🤦♂️
But there always seems to be a #Linux workaround (I'm using Manjaro) - https://gist.github.com/andrejcremoznik/e56234138305226abd41fe4d1d2561a3?permalink_comment_id=3390489#gistcomment-3390489
Thank you tangruize. Whoever you are.

Next project: building this gorgeous keyboard. Keycaps will be a bit different, but holy crap this thing looks awesome. #keyboard
I am not a fast typer by any means (just measured at around 40wpm). But at last I found a home-row modifiers configuration that doesn’t make me even slower: https://zmk.dev/docs/behaviors/hold-tap#option-3-balanced Tried all of the suggestions there and they feel like road bumps. Balanced seems to fit my style the most. #keyboard #ZMK
Native Instruments releases new Kontrol S-Series MK3 MIDI controller keyboards https://rekkerd.org/native-instruments-releases-new-kontrol-s-series-mk3-midi-controller-keyboards/
Zum Einen funktioniert das noch wesentlich besser als ich es erwartet haette, auch wenn ich natuerlich viel langsamer bin als am normalen #Keyboard.
Zum anderen hab ich fuer mich heraus gefunden dass ich anscheinend kein grosser Freund von Layers am Keyboard bin, auch wenn ich die Idee der Wegverkuerzung toll finde.
I wrote that when it was still pretty dark out and I generally don't turn the lights on if I'm by myself. So I have to feel for the keyboard a little more than normal. Especially on that particular one, because I thought I was being cool by getting black letters on black keys...
First impressions of the #Keychron C3 Pro: I really like it. It’s fairly solid, in a normal #keyboard sense (it isn’t a four pound beast like my Q3 but it also isn’t light as a feather and likely to slide all over the place like a few of my other keebs, and certainly the bog standard non-mechanical OOTB offerings from Dell etc). TKL is my jam, I’m way too old and long in the tooth for any of these silly ergo-cum-ortho models (I’ve decided to use “cum” the same way that you often see and hear Indians use it). I got the brown switch model, it was either that or reds. Good feel, not clicky but very very slightly tactile (ie brown - yes, I know that is the literal definition of the switch type). Switches do have a good actuation force, a little more than my Ivy EC’s on the Varmilo so will take some getting used to. Shat all over the place when I tried typing speed on Monkeytype, will try again once my fingers are used to this.
All in all, EXCELLENT value for a $35 keeb. 10/10 recommended.
The bottom half of the case is done, including the rubber gaskets. Now to pop the board in and continue building the top half.
Building this, I’ve just realised Lego is just really coarse grain 3D-printing. Only you can also take it apart. We had 3D printers as kids y’all and we didn’t even know it! :)
But there’s no affordable instruments for kids to experiment with
Roland decided to market to retired accordion players with 💰
So priced their V Accordions as if they were wood with reeds instead of plastic with wires
So few people bought them, no competition undersold them
And now young people aren’t playing EDM on cheap electronic accordions in their bedrooms, experimenting and getting gigs
Missed opportunities 🤷🏻♂️
Synth players really should have a chance to move around on stage
Key-tar mockery is a hate-campaign by jealous guitar players
That and the fact that what they might want is an accordion
The bellows is the best expression controller. Really fun ❤️🔥🪗
Combine that with some pedals and change the face of synth pop

Dear #linux friends,
I have #keyboard problem. This is the fourth old laptop I've been working with this year an every one has had an incorrect keyboard layout. Both #Gnome and #KDE settings fail to guide me on detecting my keyboard via key presses like we used to do in the Gentoo/Xconf days.
Instead I have a long list of keyboard layouts and I have no idea which layout corresponds to each of these laptops actual keyboards.
I found a Yamaha PortaSound PSS-80 at Goodwill the other day for just a couple bucks and it can do all the amazing stuff THIS dude does with it in this video. 🤯
I gotta hook it up and mess around with it more.
So, #Windows users. I'm looking for some recommendations
Preferably, the program would be #portable and not require administrative privileges.
If anyone uses such a tool, please let me know of it and how well it works for you.
Developers and programmers of Mastodon, whats your go to #keyboard? I'm looking for a keyboard that I can use for work that is compatible with both Mac/Windows. My current keyboard is a Mojo68 Advanced but I'm missing alot of the function keys.
The Siamese alphabet was “too long” so some guy deprecated two letters in order to fit it on a western typewriter!
They’re archaic and unused now
Lots of effort went in to adapting Chinese to the (talk about “privileged”) alphanumeric system
Starting with, how would a character-based Chinese telegraph work?
It may get a sequel about non-western computer input issues
If you're like me, you've noticed that it's gradually become harder and harder to successfully enter text on an iPhone keyboard. Today I learned it's possible to reset the keyboard dictionary so it will quit [presenting you with | correcting your input to] all the typos you've made since 2007.
To do this, drill your way down through:
