“What we must do is be ruthlessly skeptical. It is important not to let overconfident jabberers get away with presenting themselves as sages, saviors, and scholars.“

for those interested, this is an ergodox. the parts list and build instructions are available at ergodox.io

i ordered the diy cable kits from zapcables.com

and i got the multi-layer acrylic case cut from ponoko.com. i won't link to the github repo i got the case design from because... it didn't quite work out for me, and caused me a couple of problems.

after accumulating parts slowly over a couple of years, i finally finished building my own keyboard.

it was my first big soldering project, and i made a few serious mistakes that i cannot undo. but it works and it's comfortable.

the most fun part, honestly, was making the usb and trrrs cables.

i happened upon intercept-tools for the first time today, which is very handy for remapping laptop keys.

it works in x and wayland environments because it intercepts key events at the udev level. i am DE-promiscuous so this pleases me.

@aparrish i watched your 2018 deconstructconf talk today and just wanted to quickly thank you for it. it’s very good and inspiring to me. thank you ~

been working on my first web scraper.

i haven’t actually got to the scraping part yet, as i’ve been learning how to interact with postgresql without an ORM first, then modelling my DB tables. oh, and making a web UI.

next, i’ll be creating a “preview” interface so i can test what should be scraped before scheduling scrape-jobs.

my code is mega shit, but it’s been pretty fun.
