@pinkilla The one on top is the Happy Hacker Keyboard, my all time favorite. The one below is a Model01 from
I got it cheaper with the Kickstarter, but it took 2 years and ~50 blogposts about various production issues before I saw it.

@mmarif @hyde_stevenson It's the BenQ EX3501R. Even though it's made nearby in Taiwan, it was cheaper to order it in the US, including air shipping and import taxes ๐Ÿ˜•

@kai Besides all the cheesy gamer stuff, the ASUS ROG Strix Z390-E is reasonably priced and works well on Linux. Unless you're waiting to see what the next AMD processors look like...

@khavermates @kai Also included in the box... this! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

@khavermates The motherboard came with a "Republic of Gamers" sticker ๐Ÿ˜‚

@deavmi @xxbc This is why I'm not expecting a comeback of XMPP anytime soon. I wish we had a widely adopted federated IM protocol, but currently we don't, and our current best bet is (probably) ActivityPub with clients specialized for the IM usecase (no, Mastodon does *not* make a good replacement for real-time instant messangers).

@deavmi @xxbc Developers, corporate and open source alike, avoid XMPP in new IM products, often pointing out pain points with the protocol itself or it's many optional extensions, which hinder interoperability for anything beyond pure text.

@deavmi @xxbc The problem is, you can't use an IM protocol without anybody on the other side. I'm not meaning to troll, but lack of user adoption is why I stopped bothering to run XMPP infrastructure and a mobile client which used to drain my phone's battery faster than all other IMs combined.

@kai Got it for just ยฅ9500. It was probably mispriced on 'cause a few days later the price jumped to ยฅ13500.

Also bought an "awesome" gaming chair to complement my lame gaming PC.

Feedback Wanted: We moved the timeline menu from the sidebar to the nav and moved the search to an icon with a dropdown.

Do you think this UI change is appropriate?

Boosts appreciated! #pixelfed #pixeldev

@deavmi I doubt XMPP is making a comeback: the number of users continued to decline until it didn't make sense for me to justify running the server.
