Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Haha I don't have that one, and it's very nice, but I'm trying to get less, not more ;)
P.S. The Internet says it's the heaviest desktop ever at 48 kg. That would explain the pickup only.

Most boring fight ever on DT? I think the last one was the Chinese guy with the endless trolling about the hypocrisy of western politics and culture? Yeah that one was much better. This one, 3 out of 10. One point for persistence. One point for posting rate. One point for posting in really big font.

Re: Does anyone have issues posting picture attachments?

Embedded images in HTML documents are not rotated according to the EXIF tag, in any browser. The "width" and "height" from the image's header are used as is . AFAIK, that is because of the HTML specification says so Of course, the browser could just use the rotation from EXIF and present it to the ...

Re: Does anyone have issues posting picture attachments?

In any case, either phones should fix it when exporting, or desktop OS or browsers should fix it. But not all the websites in the world, which would have to post-process photos and rotate stuff.

Re: Does anyone have issues posting picture attachments?

DT has nothing to do with it. Phones hate the world outside phones, and may save photos in a retarded way. E.g. you could make a horizontal picture, and instead of saving it as a horizontal picture (duh) it saves it as a vertical one with some exif or whatever data "got you, it's really 90% ccw". Th...

That's just a problem with how phones handle orientation while the actual image is sideways.

Pandrew === Andrei. He first fixed the xwhatsit firmware and then proceeded and made QMK compatible with capsense. I haven't tried that one.

Re: "<>" key on model M is dead - fix without disassembly?

First try to reseat the keycap, but you probably already tried that. It's a bit suspect that the key is entirely dead but feels ok. In my experience that in the majority of cases means there's another key stuck somewhere, confusing the matrix, maybe one you don't use and therefore didn't notice, lik...

I don't know how IBM did it. The xwhatsit's calibration is not gonna work on the model F reproductions, because the always-pressed calibration pads give a much higher signal then real buttons. I don't know if the reproduction keyboards are different, or if the xwhatsit approach is flawed. I was thi...
