I started soldering my split 60% keyboard kit last night. I am still waiting on a few parts before I can finish it, but the soldering will take me a LONG time...

I successfully soldered on about 15 diodes. Hand shaking wasn't too bad. Now I just need another 50 diodes, two controller boards, a handful of other small components and 64 switches!

That should only take me a month or so 😂

Kinda bragging... 

Why didn't anyone tell me before that to write good software you have to get all the details right, and that there are so many details.

So, so many details.

Sorry that I haven't been around lately. I just don't feel like talking about anything about my personal life here right now.

It is a lot easier to talk about hobbies and technology, etc.

Using a 60% keyboard is going to take a minute to get used to. Not because of the missing keys, so much but I seem to use the physical edge of the board to figure out where my hands are and the right edge is much closer than I am used to.

PSA: Don't install your space bar upsided down, or it may stick. :themoreyouknow:

The cable is not actually permanent. This keyboard has bluetooth as well, so I can unplug it once it is fully charged.

My switches finally arrived, after their long trip all over the world. :)

So, that package that should have arrived yesterday but ended up in Dubai instead... Is now in Frankfurt, Germany.

What the fuck is going on?!

I expected a package from China to arrive today or tomorrow and instead the tracking info tells me that it just arrived in Dubai... The hell?

I want my keyboard parts to get here already so I can spend hours failing to solder a million tiny parts because my hands shake...

My 11 year old wants a vintage toaster for their birthday...

Ugh. I feel like death. I woke up with a horrible pounding headache.
