First Mechanical Keyboard

I received my first mechanical keyboard today. A Keychron K2 Bluetooth Mechanical keyboard with Gateron Brown switches. The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was how solid and heavy it was. I should have brought a wrist rest and will need to add that to my next order. This is my first mechanical keyboard, although it does remind me of the typewriters that I learned to type on back in the '70's. Currently I am typing this to my iPad pro. Switching it from the iPad to my Mac mini is a bit awkward but doable. After spending so much time typing on a cheap flat keyboard with membrane it is going to take some time to get used to typing on a mechanical keyboard. However, my initial review is positive. Also I have also started to watch videos on modding keyboard. I think I maybe entering a rabbit hole.

I have to admit I have never been good at tagging. I either feel like I am not using enough tags or too many. However I did find this article on how tagging has changed interesting. Thanks @jeremycherfas for posting it.

Does anyone know of a central website for shared iOs shortcuts. I have been messing around with them and do better if I have a outline and then make changes to fit my needs @rosemaryorchard

I use a combination of Together with Aperture for some of my feeds. The problem is I keep getting old articles in my feeds. Is anyone else having this problem?

Android Not Connecting to Wifi

Last week I started to notice that connecting to websites had gotten slow on my Google Pixel 2 phone and it kept getting worse over time. Finally, yesterday it would not connect at all. At the same time both my iPads connected normally. These are the steps I did in my attempt to get it reconnected. If you are having this problem I recommend reading all steps before proceeding

- Shut Wifi on the phone off and on
- Shut the phone off and on
- Forget Wifi-setting on phone
- Turn the router off and on 
- Factory Reset the phone
- Reset the router

None of the first five steps made a permanent difference. Resetting the router has worked and now my Pixel 2 is now connecting to the internet fine.
