Keyboards with QMK firmware and Linux work so well together. It's so easy to change the key map and just flash it!

New, shine-through, doule-shot key caps arrived. YMDK from Amazon. I got tired of the blank, non-transparent key caps.

Raspberry Pi 4 with 4 GB RAM!!!!!
USB 3!!!!!!!
INSTANT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now that Lineage OS supports my OnePlus 6, I can go Google-free again. The only thing I'm gonna miss big time is Maps, especially the turn-by-turn navigation. Last time I was Google-free, I couldn't find a good replacement. Any good alternative to that? I really need a reliable navigation app.

If you're looking for a Google photos alternative, check out Canon Irista:
15 GB is free, 100 GB is 2 Euros/month, you can share albums/photos AND IT'S NOT GOOGLE. Not open source, but so far I like it!

Anybody could suggest a good open source Imgur client for Android? Does such a thing even exist?

Seiko SKX007 automatic (mechanical) dive watch. Took some shots about it together with my keyboard. Mechanical keyboards and watches go well together, especially when both can glow in the dark :D Check out more pictures in the Imgur album, link is in the Reddit post:

Getting into automatic watches is the same as getting into mechanical keyboards: there's no way back to the arguably cheaper and more reasonable way :D You cold just have a cheap rubber dome keyboard like everybody else and you could just have a cheap quartz watch like everybody else, but it's just not good enough for you any more :D

Reddit is a dangerous place. The way from mechanical keyboards to automatic watches was pretty short for me, thanks to it.

Upgraded to Fedora 30. It's awesome. I feel no need and find no reason to switch to anything else. Seriously. Even Gnome with dash to dock is fantastic.

Finally I've found my favorite switch: 70g Aliaz. It's like Cherry MX Brown, but smoother and amazingly silent!

Going back to Zealios (from Cherry Blues). Much better sound and feeling! Experiment over :D

Got some T1 switches from kbdfans and compared it to my 67g Zealios. They feel exactly the same, the tactility feels exactly the same. It's a tad bit lighter then Zealios, that's all. The same thing for about half the price. Unless you want a different weight, there's no reason to buy Zealios any more. I wish the timing had been better for me, but at least I can compare.

Swapped the Zealios switches with Cherry MX Blues. Let's see how long it takes for the clickyness to get annoying :D

Having been using my new keyboard with Zealios switches and my old one with Cherry MX Browns for a few weeks now, I had to realize something I didn't expect: I like Cherry MX Browns a lot! They're light and have just enough tactility not to be linear. But I couldn't stop here. A bunch of Cherry MX Blues are inbound tomorrow :D It's nice to have a hot-swap PCB!
