Recently jumped down the mechanical keyboard rabbithole. Bought an Ergodox EZ with MX Brown switches, didn't like the feel (too light, and kinda scratchy). One week later I'm ordering a batch of lube, different switches, and tougher springs. My next goal is to get my soldering game on and make a custom keyboard for my husband. woohoo
To any musicians on Bandcamp:
Can you ask the Bandcamp support, why they use Google Analytics with their shared players?
I myself do not want to have _my listeners on my_ sites tracked unasked by Google
This is also a legal issue for any site owner within the EU.
I've asked BC's support already, yet unanswered. If we were many asking this we can form a critical mass around this issue.
Thank you for all you do & please boost.
AU politics again, sorry
How can our PM stand at G7 and proudly say something so dumb as fighting climate change = fighting covid??? Plus, I doubt we'd be as successful at covid if we had lots of land borders and higher population density. We were merely lucky. We won't be as lucky regarding climate change though.
Is it just me, or has it become almost impossible to find durum wheat (for pasta) in supermarkets since the pandemic? Even woolies lists only a few stores in my area that stocks some brand I've never seen before, and the San Remo one I usually get is just unavailable.
merh, whatever, first world problems. Back to studying for exams.

... I'm probably taking this article waay out of context.

Watching the US inauguration because ABC news won't give us anything else. Is just me, or anyone else cringed at this: while walking from his car with his family, he walks past a whole bunch of people in the sidelines then suddenly runs towards one person to talk to them personally...so happens they're black. And he does it twice. Overcompensating much?
This vaguely hit my radar when it first came out, but i'm trying to pay more attention now. It's depressing though - probably 90% of my electronics purchases are from companies on that list.
Wow. Just wow. This is the best blog post of 2020 as far as i'm concerned. Reverse Engineering the source code of the BioNTech/Pfizer SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine https://berthub.eu/articles/posts/reverse-engineering-source-code-of-the-biontech-pfizer-vaccine/
This year's Christmas Playlist that Doesn't Suck is out, and by Thor do we need things that don't suck this year.
Each year I make a playlist of various artist's arrangements of classic holiday songs to protest horrible xmas muzak.
Not all songs will be to everyone's tastes, but pop it on in the background while you're opening presents or tucking into the pud' and listen to some well known tracks by all sorts of artists.
