@lefticus So the easiest way to do this is a Teensy.
They're little Arduino-compatible microcontrollers, and can very easily be programmed to act like a keyboard (it's one of the out-of-the-box options, you just need to write a little code telling it what keycodes to send).
@lefticus The best part? for simple keyboards, a Teensy-LC is plenty, and those are under 15$, off the site or on amazon.…
@lefticus pretty much all the keyboards I've built are teensy based, and so are plenty of mechanical keyboard kits.
It's just a nice, powerful, and cheap solution for a keyboard.

I once again am listening to an old game grumps let's play and they're talking about astroglide for some reason and Arin mentions it's good because it's water based, not silicon-based.
I think he means silicone.
silicon-based lubricants have historically failed in the market because it turns out sand isn't a good lubricant
maybe it's silicon-based like how silicon-based life is an alternative suggested form of live compared to our carbon-based.

SO remember I complained that Pizza Hut implemented a car-description system but limited it to 20 characters?
Well, today I'm getting Pantera Bread, and they have a similar field. But how many letters does it max out at? Image

every time someone mentions blaseball I'm disappointed it has nothing to do with this image. Image
I'm gonna have to make my own fantasy baseball league, aren't I?
OK, the story behind this image:
The game is MLBPA Baseball aka Fighting Baseball, specifically the SNES version.
So MLBPA is the Major League Baseball Players Association, so they were allowed to use all the players for the baseball sim, but they couldn't use the teams.

I saw the news that Star Trek: Discovery is coming back this week and I was like "Wow, didn't S1 of Lower Decks just finish?" and thought "we must be living in the golden age of Star Trek!"

then I remembered that twice during my life I've had TWO TREKS airing simultaneously
(and both of those times, one of them was DS9)
The Next Generation ran from 1987-1994, with Deep Space Nine running 1993-1999, and Voyager ran 1995-2001.
