This reminds me of sci-fi spaceship flybys.

If I had the time I would make a Super Star Destroyer reveal with the SSD being a F122 and smaller keyboards. Regardless neat.

Why did you get the model M cases? Also do the 3d printing IBM logos fit into the oval holes on the IBM cases?

Ya know, sometimes I just buy stuff. I don't have any plans at all for them. But I had a hunch that in the future I'd regret not buying them once they sell out.

The 3d print is maybe 20% bigger than the slot where it goes on the keyboard. It would be damn cool, though, to have a keyboard badge with the raised lettering like these prints.

Over the past week or so, a couple of "uncool" things have happened in my life. Nothing catastrophic, but it got me thinking enough to realize something; all this extra time I have during quarantine I've basically squandered on fun activities, whilst wholesale neglecting my IRL responsibilities. Actually, this problem extends much further back than quarantine and has been snowballing over time into quite the monster.

I've had a few major life changes in my sights for a year or two now. Stuff that that I should actively be working toward, because they aren't going to magically come to fruition on their own. So I really need to hunker down and deal with my monster snowball so that I can advance as a human being.

All that to say, I probably won't be updating this thread anything close to daily going forward. I'm hoping I can take most of that energy I was spending on Fun Stuff ®, and refocus it on being a functioning adult.

I do have one thing to share for today, though. It's not related to keyboards or photography or really anything, but it's what I've got!

My girlfriend and I pretty much allow our cats to do what they want (within reason). The one major rule we've instilled in them is: don't go on the kitchen counter tops. This is for their own safety, so they don't learn this behavior and jump up there while we're cooking.

Well they never go up there while we're awake, but I've had a sneaking suspicion for a while now that they're breaking the rules at night while we're asleep.

So I did what any totally sane person would do; set up security cameras to validate (or debunk) my theory.

First night... nothing
Second night... my heart is broken

How will we ever trust you again, Maggie?! :lol:

Hehehe... I am amused at the excessive use of modern technology to capture evidence of feline felony. Dusting the worktops with a fine layer of e.g. flour would have captured the fact with paw prints in the dust (-: Not as amusing as seeing the feline in flagrante delicto.

This. So much of this! For almost all of us, and I don’t just mean here on DT. Words of wisdom.

Which are then immediately followed by cat video surveillance! But yes, I hear you man.

I know, I have such will power don't I :lol:

Dipping back into the old folders. I remember the exchange that preceded this one...

"Hold this please"
"Why?"
"Shh just hold it" *ka-chick*

Another micro switch cap picture from several months back. One day we'll all get back outside!! I sincerely believe (hope) that.
