Mechanical Keyboard – vortex pok3r

Recently, found a subreddit /r/mechanicalkeyboards /r/mk for short.

I’ve been seeing these beautiful images of keyboards of every kind! Many iKBC, wasd, poker, etc

I’ve been in the meanwhile googling an redditing about them! Their characteristics, the switches, the keycaps type of plastic and their print method, the programmability, iso vs ansi layout, so on and so forth.

Finally I decided to lose my mind and throw 110€ for a vortex pok3r rgb from amazon.

I decided for a nordic iso layout as there was no PT layout available, and although the british layout is nice to work with, one is used (in my case) to PT, and the nordic looks alike more.

So I’ve read around that it takes about 3 weeks to get fully used to it.

And after a restart, it matters the uptime, does it not?

How long can you maintain all services up and running? Downtime means a service has broken? Maybe all of them?

Fixing them is always part of the job, and holding a good uptime ratio (99.9%, anyone?)

There are times when we can’t maintain a service up and running in favor perhaps of other services, or just because it is constantly breaking down..!

Trying to understand the needed uptime ratio for the service to do its job is whats happening today regarding my personal life

Init 2

During boot time, you may select which services to start. For instance, I like to keep init 2 at a minimum (just CLI) and leave the DM for init 3.

In this comeback, that’s precisely what’s happening. Using update-rc.d, to select carefully which processes on my life are worth starting. It’s all a negotiation of effort in favour of profit; resources for functionalities..

I guess that by carefully selecting running services, you can prioritise services that are most in demand, and that’s whats happening with me right now :-/

choosing.. services in init 2


And… we’re back!

There used to sit a blog at this address.. and for some time there hasn’t been anything here.
I’ve lost all the server data, so this is a fresh restart.

There used to be a few interesting posts about technology, and few others about miscellaneous stuff (me? – don’t we love to use me me me all the time? Well, I do!)
Hopefully, and with time, there will be some interesting stuff again…

And this is actually a restart moment across my personal life, which I mean to symbolize with a frog.
A frog is not perfect. It is small, green, viscous and it will never turn to a prince no matter how many times you kiss one.
They do however, have a great eyesight, an amazing sense of hearing and can jump 20 times their body length.

Having said that, I am at the moment comparing myself to a frog. One has many flaws, but also great qualities (like everyone else?) but, does need to be seen by what it is and by what it can become. Does one need to leap 20 times its body length to restart? Or perhaps a simple step will suffice?

So a restart it is! Lets let it happen, and see how long I jump!
