    • While being stuck at home during this pandemic, I decided to do something that I hadn't done before - clean my keyboard. I'd never done it before on a count of I've never owned a proper mechanical keyboard before this. I've had my current keyboard for more than a year now and I had noticed in recent months that it was dirty and due for a cleaning, I just never had the time to do so. Which is why it was the perfect thing for me to do a few days ago as soon as I got up in the morning.

      Has there been anything you've done for the first time recently? Any new hobby you picked up? Cooked a new dish for the first time? Let's hear all your firsts.

    • I have a Macbook Air, so I can't really take apart my keyboard like you did with yours. But starting last year in the spring, I've started to clean my Macbook Air once every three months. I time it for like 20 minutes or so. Just give it a quick wipe down, use a keyboard/screen cleaner liquid, etc. I spray into the rag first and then apply on the screen/keyboard. Just so that I don't get it too wet.

      I gotta say, it's made a difference. Especially the first time I did it. So, good on ya for doing this. It's a good move, imo.

      I think you may want to add the topic hobbies to this and perhaps remove one of the tech topics: scrolling through my timeline, from the topics, title and cover photo I don’t think I would’ve realized this was the focus of your conversation starter.

      I successfully installed a mesh WiFi system this afternoon and now have enough bandwidth to watch Netflix movies upstairs. So I guess that’s a first. 😉 (H/t to @Vilen)
