What keyboard do you use?


by @jammingsloth | 5yr  | 4 comments

Looking for a good keyboard to take with me for using with my Windows laptop and future Roost stand.

I picked up an Anker keyboard, but was quickly disoriented as it is set up for Apple, with the Fn and Ctrl keys switched to what Iโ€™m used to. This may sound picky, but I work in Excel a lot.

Iโ€™m considering the Microsoft Universal Foldable keyboard, but not a fan of the big gap in the middle.

What can you all recommend? (preferably under $80)

I picked up a TVS Gold mechanical switch keyboard (the cheapest mechanical Iโ€™ve come across) online in India, and itโ€™s great if youโ€™re going to be staring at a screen typing code all day. Heavier than a regular desktop keyboard (most mechanicals tend to be), so itโ€™s not the perfect solution if you need portability. Iโ€™ve been using el cheapo keyboards for years, and I really should have moved up to a mechanical one a long time ago.

On my next trip back to the US, Iโ€™m tempted to pick up the Das Keyboard and give it a shot.

Not under $80 unfortunately but having also failed with the Anker Iโ€™ve been loving the Logitech Easy Switch + Roost combo. Itโ€™s been pretty robust so far - about 8 months in and still going strong.

Whatโ€™s the advantage of the Microsoft Universal Foldable keyboard over your default keyboard? Are you using a sub 12" or what? o__O
If you really type a lot of numbers you should consider a small external keypad, but getting used to the laptop keyboard is crucial. Or maybe just find a laptop with a better kb, since an external kb is a pain in the arse from the portability point of view.

You definitely make good points. Laptop is 15" and keyboard is fine. But Iโ€™m going to be using this roost stand to try to correct my shitty posture, and since the laptop will be elevated Iโ€™ll need something at desk-level.

Are co-working spaces a good way to meet people in a new city?

 

by @donaldbough | 7d 6 days ago | 0 comments

My fiancรฉe and I are most likely moving to NYC (maybe DC) in August, and as a technical startup co-founder I'd love to meet new people that are also into startups. Would joining a co-working space be worth the money to do this?

I work for a big tech company that has an office in NYC, but it's mainly sales so I wouldn't be able to meet others that are related to any of my 9-5 work or likely into tech.

If co-working spaces, post covid of course, aren't a good way to meet business starting people in a new city, what is?

Is La Gomera a nice place to stay?


in Norway by @kvarsten | 14d 13 days ago | 1 comment

Hi, my name is Eric and I am a remote worker from Norway. Me and a friend is flying into Gran Canaria on Friday and spending two weeks in San Agustin on the south side of the Island.

After that we are pondering about staying in La Gomera. Does anyone of you have an experience staying there or are there anyone of you staying there now? :)

Ukraine Residency


in Ukraine by @reticle | 17d 17 days ago | 0 comments

I have a slightly above average US income which I can work remotely from paired with a $1000 a month income stream and more than enough to purchase a middle end Flat in Ukraine. Does anyone with knowledge of this process have any advice to acquire a reliable way to stay in the country?

How to find accomodation in Las Palmas, Canary Islands


in Las Palmas, Spain by @philippg | 20d 20 days ago | 1 comment

Hi, we are trying to find a house to rent for 2-3 persons near Las Palmas for 4-5 months at the moment and it seems to be almost impossible except through Airbnb which is super expensive. Any advises or local contacts?

Is there a map of countries open for travel now?


in Russia by @vernon99 | 1mo 1 month ago | 8 comments

I have two passports from different countries and am trying to understand where can I travel now. Is there a publicly available map of countries open for visitors by passport country that I can use to see what are my options? I was pretty sure such a thing should exist, but cannot easily find any.

Maybe at least there're maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there's no such thing, I'd be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate :)

Are restaurants, cafes and malls working in Mexico City taking into account COVID situation?


in Mexico by @thateverdmitriy | 2mo 1 month ago | 1 comment

I am planning to travel to Mexico City next weekend and stay for 7-10 days there. I wonder if cafes, stores and other places like these work? And if cafes work, do they work as usual or only for take away&delivery? Will be very thankful if someone can help here.

Has anyone used MindMyHouse?


by @raphadk | 5yr 4 years ago | 5 comments

A few days ago I came across this: https://www.mindmyhouse.com/homepage, itโ€™s a website for connecting house owners and caretakers. Even though they seem to exist for a long time, I havenโ€™t heard of them before. The website seems a bit outdated too.

Has anyone tried this? What was the experience like?

What do I do with my piano keyboard?


by @matthieudrula | 5yr 5 years ago | 12 comments

Hey guys!
Thinking about starting travelling but the biggest hurdle at the moment is that Iโ€™m learning and having fun on my piano.
I canโ€™t travel around the world without it. How do you deal with travelling with an โ€˜heavyโ€™ musical instrument?
Do you rent one? Or is there a cool trick to travel with it like sending it to a music school for like 30$ and been able to play there?
I really donโ€™t want to stopโ€ฆ
