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.

@neauoire I think yes. To me the webring is about connecting, motivating and inspiring like minded individuals. Language is a medium, valuable content can be delivered with, without and around it even if translation is rough or non existent. Translation tools will continue to improve.

Ideally sites could be tagged/filtered based on language.

In saying that; I guess the answer is an easy 'no' if the process of reviewing non-english sites is too big of a burden.

@neauoire @faun Putting a modern game engine with high graphic and fps expectations inside a dev environment... into a VM increases hardware requirements... or turbo fans, or lower performance.

@peregrine Haha. I'll make a stand thing. Just testing everything works in photo :)

The screen seems good - 15" IPS, usb powered. It's this thing or similar aliexpress.com/item/3284768886

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.

@lains Oh derp. Thanks! I assumed that was firmware for some reason.

Thank you!

I would really like low profile keys. Do you know if I got this kit would it work with "Kailh Low Profile Choc Switches" or similar switches? "MX Low Profile"?

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
