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

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: reddit.com/r/Seiko/comments/bx

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

Made my Fedora to look like Ubuntu. I tryed to like vanilla Gnome, but it gets too much out of my way. I like to see all open apps and the app launchers all the time. Ubuntu does a great job in tweaking Gnome! The only things needed are Tweak Tools and Dash to Dock.

After playing around with all the colors on my RGB keyboard, I realized, that I like plain white backlight the best. No need for fancy colors, no need for RGB any more. On the other hand, it's nice to have all those colors on the rare occasions I want them. But plain good old white is the best :D

Installed Ubuntu 18.10 on my laptop. I'm very impressed, I'm going to keep it. Everything works great, it's beautiful and Ubuntu's version of Gnome is much easier to use than stock Gnome. I like it a lot! Canonical has done a fantastic job!

One of the RGB LEDs on my HS60 board only emits blue or green light, nothing else (no red, white, etc). It worked normally in the beginning, this stared a few days ago. Anybody has any idea what can be the problem or had similar experience?

New board is finished. HS60 hot-swap PCB with QMK firmware, Zealios v2 67g switches, 5Β° alu case, alu plate, GMK screw in stabs, Enjoypbt key caps. The other one is my good ol' Varmilo VA88M with MX Browns. Both are fantastic, high quality boards, but this 60% is going to be my main one from now on. If you want fully assembled TKL, Varmilo is awesome! Building your own 60% is even more awesome :D

@hund right shift stab can only be mounted the other way around as it should be. The cutouts for the wire on the plate are on the other side. The backspace stab's wire faces away from you, so it fits the cutouts on the plate. This one doesn't. Strange.

All parts have arrived :) I had inserted almost all switches into the plate+PCB, when I realized that I completely forgot about the stabs :D Had to pull out everything and start over :D Now I'll just have to screw it into the case and put on the key caps! It's so nice to have a hot swap PCB, which is by the way the HS60.

Zealios 67g switches have arrived! Compared to my MX Browns, they are much more tactile! Now I understand why Browns are called dirty linears :D

I''ve installed Pi-hole on my raspi 2 running Raspbian Light. It blocks a ton of crap and it hasn't broken any websites yet! No worry about Chromium dropping ad-blocker extensions :D I can really recommend it!
