This is very good. The reason it works I guess is because it reminds us of childhood evenings with parents doing kitchen cleanup while we doze in the next room.

The only animal in the entire zoo is a dog.

It was a shitzhu.

Atex terminal keyboard that was found in my office.  Apparently used to write newspaper articles in the 80's.  The company still exists, but I don;t think they make these any more ;)

This is a pretty sad story. I can imagine this pain - saving for years for something really special and then being very disappointed with the actual product. Porsche really should do the right thing by this guy. Ok, so I don't know the whole story but if it's true, he desires at least a refund.

The company I work for is moving to a new office quite soon, and one of the things that we'll all need to get used to is hot desking (or Activity Based Working as it's being buzz worded as).

This means that everyone gets a laptop - in the morning, you find a desk and plug in.  You use the keyboard, mouse and screen that's there.

Awesome way to share keyboard mugre (an awesome Spanish word that means exactly what it sounds like)

So I'm gonna invest in a proper, personal keyboard that can travel with me.  Here's the list of must-haves

1) Mechanical - preferably Cherry Blue switches.
2) Small form factor - tenkeyless for sure.
3) Not too loud - don't want to piss off my work neighbours too much!
4) USB port somewhere on the board would be awesome.
5) Looks cool
6) Some colour, even if its just some highlights in a tasteful blue ;)

So what are my options?  
1) Das Keyboard make awesome quality keyboards, but they don't have a compact model, so unless the others all suck, it's a non-starter.

2) Filco have one called a USA Majestouch MINILA 67 that ticks many of the boxes.  No USB port and no colour, but it's certainly compact. (http://goo.gl/g1zFta)

3) Happy Hacking - Professional looks good too (very pricey though) (http://goo.gl/9Wvh9a)

4) And there's a CODE keyboard here : http://goo.gl/B8nF8P

5) Cool Master have a Cherry Blue switch one - the Quickfire Rapid.  More of a gaming keyboard, but looks the part and is certainly awesome. (http://goo.gl/PcgTD4)

Hmmm.

Anyway, I've created an Amazon wishlist with some of the potentials:

Would love some feedback from any keyboard experts out there!

I'm a big fan of +LastPass , but there's lot of good solutions out there.  I think it's time we stop  faffin' about with our online security - I hope #heartbleed is a wakeup call!

3rd party password managers strike fear into many, and it's not without cause but I think, on balance, they're better than having to remember 100 different passwords - and definitely better than writing them all down!
Thanks to the Heartbleed security flaw, you're going to have to change a lot of passwords - so this is the perfect time to start using a password manager.

This is one of my favourite bars in Wellington. The vibe is laid back and friendly, there's no annoying distractions such as TV's, pool tables, gaming machines and so forth, so you can sit with your friends have have an actual conversation. Novel! The selection of beers is also awesome - they serve their own Sprig and Fern beers on tap (I've never bothered to check what they have in bottles) all of which are very good, and some are outstanding - looking at you Fern Draught! Go in a few times and the staff will remember your name and probably your usual order (unless you're like me and get something different every time!).

Knowledgeable staff, excellent selection of instruments (perhaps too many pianos!) and fair pricing. Very impressed.

Any time we're in Auckland around lunchtime looking for eats, we head to Knuckle Sandwich. Best sandwiches in the city! Excellent value for money, friendly owner too :)

Great spot for a beer, and they really do have the best selection of beers in the city. I'm not exactly a regular, but it's often on my list of places to go when I'm in the city for an evening :)

We spent just two nights here shortly after Christmas 2009. We arrived late & exhausted after driving all the way from Wellington, but the English lady who met us (owner/manager I think) was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The views over the lake were also very pleasant. Anyway, I would recommend this hotel to a friend in a heartbeat.
