    I followed this guide (reddit post). I just did not follow the advice about using new pots/strainers/spoons/everything for each dye, which I believe led to the variations I have (which I like, YMMV).

    You can get blank PBT keycap sets from amazon and alibaba for a decent price (though the profile I have here is not available)

    EDIT: note that some of my caps started out red or gray, rather than off white

    So in Chrom(e|ium) you can log into the browser itself. This enables some extra features like syncing bookmarks and extensions (similar to Mozilla Sync in Firefox). This new thing does the browser login if you log into, say, gmail.

    What I think you are describing is what they've had for a while, which is to simply save your login session as other sites would (facebook, reddit, tildes, etc). This would be the same across all browsers.

    Follow up to the post Dying PBT Keycaps.

    There are some inconsistencies, but I reused the pot and strainer between dyes, but that is the overall aesthetic I was going for

    I used iDye poly in brown, green, kelly green (the darker, almost black green in the pictures), and orange (in that order)

    I think they mean the browser integration gets logged in. What you are familiar with is just the usual login sharing the google stuff has had forever.

    OK, I see, so I can also manually edit the query string for now.

    It would be cool to get a list of all the tags (or maybe top two levels) available for your subscribed tildes

    It would also be nice to be able to filter tags as an OR (right now doing ~test?tag=foo&tag=bar only shows my one test post that has those two top level tags). Possibly add an or_tag query parameter as to not break the existing behavior?

    EDIT: looks like I was mistaken, looks like adding multiple tags only filters the last one, not both as an AND

    Yep, looks to be working how I would expect now. Is there a way to search/filter tags so that you only see that content?

    I think this would be great. I participate in some fairly niche communities on Reddit that may not have a ton of people here (yet). It would be great to be able to post, say, a picture to reddit then comment there saying “Check out more on tildes” where I have a more “high effort” post.

    This would prevent me from having to double post, and can get some more people interested in an invite.

    I was testing topic tag filtering and it didn't seem to work as I expected.

    I was trying to filter out a topic with a main.sub style tag, but without a main tag.

    I set the filter to main expecting everything nested undeneath that to be hidden, but it did not.

    Is that just not implemented yet, or am I just not understanding the feature correctly?

    I went from QWERTY hunt'n'peck -> Colemak -> Workman and I have settled there. Learning Workman after Colemak was pretty easy, much easier than my transition to Colemak while also learning to touch type for the first time..

    It's been about 6 months since I started, so I still have more to improve on.

    In terms of improvement over QWERTY, I definitely feel better after a day of typing. I also learned to type "properly" and switched to an ortholinear layout at the same time though, so I am not sure how much those things also helped.

    This is from the point of view of a developer, so a regular typist may have differing opinions.

    I just got my /dev/tty blanks in from Massdrop and I an thinking of dying them to match my current ABS colorway.

    I have looked at the guide and I think I am able to do all that, but I am wondering what kind of look I am going to/can get by dying the gray and red caps?

    I assume the gray caps would just yield a slightly darker color, but I am curious if I can get an interesting shade of brown by dying the red keycaps with some other color (or just more brown?)

    Any hints on dying the colored caps or dying PBT in general are appreciated.

    Regular folk can do this using the dev tools in firefox and chrome as well, at least for testing things in the browser.

    On linux you can also run individual applications using trickle to limit bandwidth.

    More people should use these and other tools available to test these things more.

    I really like the Shooter Jennings album Black Ribbons. It is a complete departure from his previous three country/southern rock albums, venturing into concept rock (with narration tracks done by Stephen King!).

    It was poorly received among his fans that only like the country stuff, but I think it is a great album.
