The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain.

Got my pi4 :)

Time to give linux another shot... Arch is best option? I just need it to look pretty, and be able to run VS code, Git, Spotify, VLC, Firefox etc.

Gonna try just stick the pi and battery to the back of this screen and make a stand.

Keyboard in photo is not mine, just testing.

Any keyboard peoples know how I can get more information about specifically this keyboard or extremely similar? Either buying one, or building the same. "black mask 60 mechanical keyboard" searches don't get me anywhere.

The photos are from the "Tokyo Mechanical Keyboard Meetup Vol.6" romly.com/archives/2019/05/tok

"Educate yourself, so you can be part of the conversation. Learn something scientific, something mathematic. Explore philosophy. Study paleontology. Try to learn a new language. You don’t even have to make fluency your goal, just get a few more words in your head. Listen to an educational podcast. Professors from colleges are offering their lectures online for free. One of my greatest challenges as a teacher was convincing students they were smart after someone had told them they were dumb."
