Big advantage to a keyboard like the keyboardio Model 01 is, you can chord multiple modifier keys with your thumb.

Learned something important about keybase’s kbfs system, which is mounted as a fuse drive on macOS at /keybase: you don’t need to do a mkdir to make a shared private folder; rather just cd to it. To share a file with keybase friend heidi, just do cd /keybase/private/youruser,heidi and that folder will magically show up, and you can drop the files to share right in there. Slick! 😍

Are you aware of keybase.io? They offer various features like encrypted chat, git, shared file storage, a public webpage, but my favorite part is how they are making identity easy. See the links on my keybase profile.

Did you know you can specify how rsync uses ssh? Set a variable like this:

sshopts="ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no"

Then call it like this:

rsync --verbose --compress --archive --recursive --partial /
--progress --checksum --delete --rsh="$sshopts" public/ /

Bonus tip: target needs a trailing slash!
