So...how is heat different from other types of energy?

Yesterday I received a Ducky One 2 Skyline TKL from mechanicalkeyboards.com. This thing is so well built, I'm really impressed. This is my 4th or 5th keyboard and for the life of me, I can't figure out how to remap, via the dip switches, the windows and alt keys. I'm a Mac user and it having the keys laid out properly is a huge help to my productivity. Can anyone help me out with this one?

I know this is kind of an old thread, but it came up in a search result.

You can program the Ducky to make the Alt key macro the Win key and vise-versa, BUT this doesn't work for a lot of use cases, such as needing to hold option (Alt) while you drag something in a DAW. The Ducky macros are not a substitute for having an actual DIP switch. So that sucks.

My best results have been using Karabiner. Karabiner seems legit. It's free. It has profiles. It has an event viewer to help you work out what's coming from the keyboard. It allows you to apply the customization only for specific hardware, like just for the Ducky USB keyboard, so that nothing changes for your Mac's keyboard.

Thanks for the reply! Karabiner is good. I ended up swapping the keys in system preferences.

This guy fucks.

My GTI makes me regret disliking VW after owning my 96 Jetta. Turns out I was just a shitty car owner from age 15-22. Haha

My 96 Jetta gl had the 2.slow in it. First car I ever had and was the same color as this gti.

what version are you on? the 1.3.1 jailbreak just came out, probably the most stable jailbreak I have ever used

Whatever the most recent 11.x release is. I'm not unhappy with iOS as a platform, but the overall decline in reliability from hardware and software from Apple. It's a love hate relationship.

It'd say iOS is the most comfortable os right now, especially with the recent jailbreak their phone hardware is one of the most seamless experiences i have ever used, paired together with Airpods, and Watch, it makes for a fantastic phone experience.

Mac OS is definitely lacking in hardware, and their recent business practices with rebranding the Macbook Pro into a everyone platform, and even refusing to repair some of the most recent models of iMacs has shifted my mentality with Mac as a good platform.

Their phone ecosystem is the only thing keeping my opinion about Apple good

Agreed. 100%.

Any word on when the EKENÄSET Armchair will be available in stores or on line?

Fellow ex-Genius turned sysadmin (also gunning for CCNA) congrats!

I imagine it would be similar to me trying to sell a woman a bra

You know about the cups sizes and all? They have different cups. You got the A, the B, the C, the D. That's the biggest.

What’s taking so long? You ask me to get a pair of underwear and I’m back in two seconds.

I’m I’m the Chicago area. Had a deposit placed on a 2015 GTI, ~50k miles for about $15.5k. Then was able to haggle a 2016 for only a couple grand more. Seems to be the 2015’s are hitting a good price on the used market lately.

Good to know

I’d say if you’re comfortable with the price you paid and if you’re making monthly payments you’re good with, you got a good deal. Your 2-door GTI looks awesome! Wish mine came with tinted windows.

Also in the Chicago area. Would love to know because I do really well with classroom/hands on training.

Magnet or Spectacle.

That Barnes and noble display is killer. Lol. Got my third Lamy on a whim thanks to them. Same one you have here.

Looks rad. Tell me about the desk and the watches in the book shelf.

On the winder is a 1969 Tudor Prince Jumbo Day-Date (ref 7019/3), on the shelf is the ceramic Submariner (114060) and Citizen Nighthawk!

Desk is called the Behler Writing Desk, I'd skip it honestly. I didnt realize how much I would bang my knee on the shelf part until after I had drilled a giant hole in it for the monitor arm.

I love those Jumbo Tudor Day-Dates! Subs, too, of course!

Hi everyone,

The latest podcast episode touched on focus and distraction and this got me thinking... I have recently found it tough to find my focus on a project, long or short term, and if I can find it, I struggle to maintain it. I can wear noise cancelling headphones, shut off slack, go on DND on my calendar/phone, but my mind struggles to stay on task. I have so much I want to do and want to learn, that I jump around from topic to topic, idea to idea, and task to task, only accomplishing so much.

Any tips on how to get better with focus?

A few things that have helped me:

No BS phone or internet browsing on 'breaks.' They ruin focus for much longer than I thought.

Getting up early, making a coffee, and working before I do anything else has worked REALLY well for me, although it's a personal thing. In the early morning I'm in kind of a tired daze, and easy/boring/repetitive tasks that would make me anxious or uncomfortable later in the day seem easy to accomplish.

Time also passes really quickly in the morning, so I can get through a lot of work without really noticing.

YMMV.

There's a Slack channel for linux admins in training. Have one RHCSA and some other Ops/DevOps guys in it. Feel free to join to PM me your email and I will invite you. I thought it was a public channel at one point. Sorry for the confusion.

so.... since it's not on the sidebar, any additional info about where the channel is?

D’oh! Sorry. I posted that in a rush.

Edited my original comment, feel free to PM me with your contact info and I'll send you an invite. I'll see what can be done about making it a public team, though. Great group of folks over there.

Just got one off eBay for this price. Awesome price.
