I made a mechanical keyboard numpad

So I've been meaning to make a mechanical keyboard for a while, and finally got around to doing it. I had a teensy 2.0 and a bunch of Cherry MX brown knockoff switches lying around, so I just needed to design a board.

Blag Update

So I finally updated this site. I am no longer using Wordpress, as it was really overkill, and not really what I wanted. I am now using Pelican, which is a Python based static site generator. So that's nice. I'll probably be fiddling with it for a while.

Emacs cat mode

Note to self: Do not format hard drives while sleepy (or at least make a backup)

Sooo... I was installing Arch Linux, and resized my Linux Mint partition with parted (which is apparently not good at shrinking partitions). This lead to an issue where the partition thought it was bigger than it was. In trying to fix this, I ended up accidentally reformatting the partition, and …

SATs today

I took the SATs today. They went much better than last time I took them, probably due to actually getting to sleep last night! Also, during the test, I knocked my phone off of the little pile of stuff under my desk, and the screen cracked... :(
