Need Feedback / One Handed Typing / Accessibility / Disability / Injury 

Positive, negative, neutral: all valid forms of feedback for this

I've been working towards building a one handed typing solution lately and need feedback. I *think* I have found a workable solution to cover a variety of one handed typing needs including increased utility for folks with hand disabilities/injuries.

I don't know for sure if it's a solid, general setup and I could use *your* feedback so I can make this as accessible as possible.

Can you take a look at the attached keyboard layout and let me know your thoughts?

I plan on taking the layout and building a mini keyboard that will use it as the layout. The goal is to build a open hardware mini keyboard for one handed typing using the layout.

Rendering of the hardware is attached.

Does this look like a good mini keyboard?

(A left handed version is also being developed)

It will have 8 keys, a screen, battery and bluetooth/usb. It'll also be fully programmable so you can adjust the layout and fine tune it to your needs.

The switches for the keyboard will likely come in a few different styles and I'm currently researching options.

I *think* a set of 3 styles (tactile/smooth/clicky) with 3 weights (15/20/25g) will be on offer but Im not sure yet.

If you have Thoughts, please let me know.

ALL feedback is welcome and I'm hoping to get as much input as possible. Replies, DMs and Discord (KemoNine#8607) are all valid ways to get in touch.

I could really use the help as I want to ensure I'm not making bad assumptions/choices.

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

Here in Chile we used to call fascists «chupa picos» (“cock suckers”), until people realised that’s there’s nothing wrong with sucking dick, so people started calling them «chupa lumas» (“baton suckers”), which is more hilarious in my opinion.

If you ever need to insult a fascist, call them «fasho culiao chupa lumas!» (“you fucking baton sucking fash!”) :3

So if you've been following me for awhile, you've seen me mention Fipamo from time to time as one of the projects I've focused on.

Fipamo at it's core is a blog platform that started as I promise to myself to get writing again but only with software that I built so I can add features that I need and to share it with other folks that want something easy to use and have full control of their data.

It took a bit but it's finally in beta.

"So you know when you’re flopping about at home, minding your own business, drinking from your water bottle in a way that does not possess any intent to subvert the Commonwealth of Australia?"

"For security reasons, we try to change our Prime Minister every six months, and to never use the same Prime Minister on multiple websites."

this is the perfect blogpost and you can't convince me otherwise.

The original Ballad of Mulan was composed in the Northern Wei dynasty of of China, a kingdom founded by the Tuoba clan of the nomadic federation Xianbei. In fact, the Emperor/Son of Heaven in the ballad also goes by Kagan or Khan, a traditional honorific for the leader of the Eurasian nomads. You wouldn't know it from the sinicized modern adaptations, though, where the Khan is uniformly the bad guy. #history #China

Non-trademarked fully unlocked fork of Mattermost® 

Source: github.com/cjdelisle/Matterfos
Why ?
1. Unless you buy an "enterprise license" even simple features like channel ownership are disabled (anyone can delete any channel)
2. Licenses are sold per-head so it's unusable for a public server
3. While the code is OSS, their trademark policy doesn't allow anyone to use their name in a fork
4. Unlike projects like Chromium, their trademark is all over their codebase
Tried to reach out, got no response.
