So I have a mechanical keyboard, a cherry brown one I've been using for like 5+ years every day. For a long time I've been annoyed at the sound it makes, but convinced myself that it didn't make sense to fix because in order to lubricate the switches, I would need to de-solder the switches from the board.

Well as it turns out, that isn't true. If you have a cherry red, brown or blue that is nice but you really want that super smooth feeling of a more premium switch, you can absolutely lubricate it. All I did was depress the switch, put the smallest amount of Super Lube Synthetic Oil on a size 0 brush and then brush the sides of the cherry browns. I repeated this for all the switches.

After a week, it's like a new, much more expensive keyboard. It sounds totally different, more similar to the far more expensive keyboards that my coworkers have. I haven't had any reliability issues and the cost to do it was less than $10. Strongly recommend.

Do you have a favorite vintage computer?

@nixCraft Definitely the here.

Back then, it was a machine to both have lots of fun (with video games) and learn the very basics of programming (yes, the built-in was stupidly designed, riddled with bugs, missing any support for the special C64 hardware, nevertheless it worked extremely well for learning).

Later, after studying at , turning back to it (this time in ) was great as well and learning didn't stop. E.g. I learned how a works internally. I had to, in this machine, the keyboard matrix is directly wired to IO chips 😎

This is a bit concerning especially for streamers. It may be a good idea to learn a habit of muting your mic when entering passwords in the future.

  • FlorisBoard | FOSS keyboard that respects your privacy ( florisboard.org )

    I came across everyday topic on Techlore Discussions about free and open source keyboards for Android and discovered this little gem. It is FlorisBoard, a virtual keyboard for Android which respects privacy of the user. I can sigh with relief and finish my search for that singular keyboard for typing stuff on the go....

    If you are a user, as a caveat emptor, despite advertising Linux support for the 6 Professional , they do not support Linux (or MacOS) for firmware updates.

    From support:
    "The firmware updater can only be run from a Windows computer or VM. I'm sorry we do not have an installer program that will run on a Linux distro."

    This doesn't mean it won't work out of box, but you won't have access to bug fixes that might impact you.
