As I can now display shortcuts depending on the program context, I decided to write a post about it:

Here is my little hint of the madness in my mind…

Complete impulse buy, but LOOK HOW CUTE 🤓

Yes, that is a cat-ear LED diffuser on the back 😅 (thankfully it's removable)

I thought I had gotten over the bug, but clearly not!

Very excited for this to arrive, and then will get the whole family together for a photo! If you're a real keeb nerd like me and want the specs they're here:

But of course I will mod it immediately, thinking Alpaca or Gat Yellow switches 👀

Now on, a bunch of new and returning PCBs, including the Chouchou, Masonry, CYOA Ortho, and Mushi!

Anyone has an idea why for a few weeks, the under on Unstable (set via "setxkbmap -option compose:menu -option compose:rwin -option compose:rctrl -option compose:ralt") suddenly only works if I release it before pressing the first key of the wanted key combo?

If you see e.g. a "a instead of an ä from me, it's because I was used to already press " before I released the Compose Key. Very annoying and happens far too often. 🤬

Suddenly I can feel it at my fingertips .... It must be... the 4th! Sound on!

New deskmat.

The new RedragonShop Eisa K686 Pro SE keyboard just arrived at my front door a few minutes ago.

This was sent to me as a review unit, so I'll be using it, checking it out and testing it over the next couple of weeks and then posting my review on the blog that you can view here:

Had this aluminum plate laser cut a few months back and hand-wired it with Box Navies and a RPi Pico, and oiled oak for the sides. I missed my numpad, though, so I used my own laser cutter and made an external one from Masonite and textured spraypaint.

New keyboard who dis?

I wrote a post that briefly explains the protocol for transferring overlays and stuff

wigglytuffitout, to mechanicalkeyboards avatar

so out of curiosity because i feel like the answer here is "still eye-bleedingly expensive", o #mechanicalkeyboard tag, but

is there any place out there making mechanical keyboard, uh, boards? like the base you customize with keys you like etc etc?, for split keyboards? fully split down the middle, in two pieces, not just ergonomically slanted but two actual pieces of the keyboard that can be a few feet apart or more if you get a longer cable?

because not going to lie, even as i find it immensely useful and an incredibly necessary thing for me to even use a computer... i kinda want an upgrade for the split keyboard i have. with a longer cord. but it's already as long as the kinesis freestyle 2 gets lol. i am mildly dreaming of a split keyboard where the two parts are attached by like. a stupidly long cord, but done up in curlicues like wired telephones connecting base to handset so it's relatively out of the way but then can stretch across the room if you're walking and talking and also it is 1993.

i would also, not gonna lie, enjoy using prettier keys sometimes. and i feel like i am ALMOST to a point where, technically, and through the grace of my dad's really excellent "used to write articles for electronics magazines reviewing ICs" workshop up there, and health-wise, but let's be real it's mostly coasting off my dad's shit, i think i could have the ability to put together Babby's First Customized Mechanical Keyboard?? fisher-price level beginner mind you where you're basically plugging stuff into stuff into other stuff with only a little soldering or whatever. but i'm like. JUST ABOUT THERE.

i have no fucking clue if such a thing is even goddamn made, mind you. but if someone who knows about mechanical keyboards could maybe give me a heads up if this thing even exists or is doable, i would dearly love that. thank you for your wisdom, keyboard clackers

Created a shortcut overlay for @inkscape Very satisfying to see the icons on the keycaps 🥹

Habe es tatsächlich geschafft meine geliebte Ducky zu schrotten und muss nun gerade auf einer low-profile Tastatur arbeiten. Fühlt sich einfach nur komisch an, obwohl ich vor ein paar Jahren noch täglich so gearbeitet habe. Immerhin ist der Ersatz unterwegs.

Das neue Arbeitsgerät ist da 🤩

There is an inconsistency on Turkish ISO layout between Windows and MAC, on Grave and NONUS_BACKSLASH keys. For QMK, I had to overwrite and flip them with existence checking of my MAC layer, where I flip GUI and ALT keys.

This both happens on QMK and @ZMK on multiple boards. On ZMK, closest thing I found to achieve this is conditional layers, where I re-define almost every key.

I hate this approach, but couldn't find a better way😔

I hacked my mechanical keyboard and added a Trackpad. It works nicely!

Cirque Trackpad works nicely with Splinky, an open-sourced MCU with RP2040 in heart, which I built myself. The board is also open-sourced called Woodpecker. Modified by @ozkan due to my request.

The case is a generic 60% walnut one.

Both hardware, including shields and Firmware ( QMK and @zmk ) source could be found at:

Designing my next minimalist currently. Currently I have:

  • One less column and one more thumb key per half compared to the current keyboard, for 5 columns and 4 thumb keys

  • Low profile thumb keys

  • Per key RGB (don't have to populate or use, but could be nice)

  • No case, going for flat desk mounting

  • Horizontal scroll wheel

  • Joycon thumbstick next to thumb cluster

Anything else that I should consider adding?

Now I can download overlays for program specific shortcuts! #PolyKybd #MechanicalKeyboard

Oh man ey, dieses Shiba Inu-Artisan ist echt zucker:

Aber ist mir das 54 EUR wert? 🥺

I use a split mechanical keyboard and miss the conveniences of layers and homerow mods on my laptop. Kanata has been an excellent option for me.

I wrote an article on using Kanata to remap any keyboard¹, with a focus on not just how but why we're running each command and what the pieces of configuration mean/do. My hope is to simplify the first steps for someone without a programming/IT background to get started. Feedback welcome!

La tastiera meccanica che 8BitDo ha fatto per il NES e per il Famicom era ottima, ed io adoro il Commodore 64... MA... non so spiegarne il perchè, ma questo nuovo design con i colori classici del "biscottone" non riesce a conquistarmi.
