Re: Can someone explain to me the whole Geekhack

He got banned from GH for deleting the wiki content of some guy he didn't like, and they had no version control.
He got banned from DT for flood posting in order to get banned.

Re: Objective reasons for using a mechanical keyboard

Yeah so I asked my wife why do you buy such expensive shoes when these flip-flops have been excellent for me and I don't see any objective reasons to buy decent shoes instead of the cheapest crap. I am a biped so my opinion is not trival or irrelevant. :ugeek:

Broken image: https://deskthority.net/viewtopic.php?p=217848#p217848 It was hosted on DT . Hopefully still there in the database. I used that joke a fair bit back in the day, and it still applies! (correction) I found it in the last backup of the old site. Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 1.29.03 pm.png

I'm afraid I passed them on earlier except one which I keep as a potential refurbish part for the 1395682.

I'd keep the left one. The right one has all kind of nonsense like QWERTY printed on the keycaps for which I have no use.

Re: Replacing Space Cadet Keycaps?

Don't know if this is of any use to you, I got mine without case and EPROM, but to counter NOS, and the guy I got it from (former employee) sent me the original controller source code, in LISP of course. I last used LISP in CS college way too long ago, I think to code something to generate fractals,...

Re: DT Update Log and TODO

If I search for that error it seems most likely that is a bug in your particular os version. Possibly it doesn't like the cipher protocol negotiated between server and browser.

Re: DT Update Log and TODO

Spy’s weird behaviour: Not weird really, the timestamps are server generated, so when there's a new post it's "less than a minute". The old spy then kept updating those relative timestamps in the client by javascript, the new spy does not. So it will accumulate "less than a minute" posts happily fo...
