@ivan Excellent example of how messed up our throwaway society is. Some one is willing to pay the company to repair it and they themselves tell you to just buy a new one. ๐Ÿ˜ก

I don't own a mac, yet, somehow, I walk people (primarily my brother) through how to do some things on mac...

To add on this. Screen damage is visible only after Kobo returned from their repair shop. I've sent it there with unresponsive screen (backlight worked).

That being said I don't exclude the option I've damaged the device. Au contrare, it is the most likely scenario. I'm just bitching about their approach (we won't fix cause it's expensive).

Fucking aye! I would pay for it!!!

So official repair partner of Rakuten Kobo told me that they wouldn't repair my Kobo as the price of repair is higher than the device value.

Screen is broken so that leaves me with DIY approach...

But on the positive side, although I am still struggling with this keyboard my fingers and wrists don't hurt anymore...

Especially when you also need to remember all of the special characters and meta keys...

Ortholinear keyboards are PITA to master...

Typing on this thing can really be pain sometimes...

Every time I go to adjust ergodox layout I decide it would be good to first master the default one and then I quit the configurator...

Ya, Mastodon's web UI is great. Certainly better than tweetdeck in every single imaginable way...

USB image is just 360 MB and from that you get fully functional OS... NICEEE!!!

.@Blender's videos on #YouTube have now come back, but they are also being told by Google/YT that they HAVE to monetise them. #Blender are considering refusing, which presumably would mean the videos being taken down again:

blender.org/media-exposure/you

Whatever they once stood for, #Google's aim now is exploiting their users' content for maximum profit.

If you don't want your videos to be exploited, it is important to switch to an independent alternative:

#DeleteYouTube

Google podcasts looks fine but sucks big time due to the fact you have to have web activity turned on in order to subscribe to some feed.

Having mixed feelings about Twitter... One day I wish to delete my profile and the next one I remember how many folks are more active there than anywhere else...

So here's my new setup. New star of the setup is ErgoDoxEZ keyboard. Extremely happy with it...

Really need to purchase Kerbal space program but will wait for some sale...

There's a steep learning curve with learning how to write on Ergodox keyboard. But seems I'm slowly mastering it. It only took me 3 minutes to write this.
