New blog post: My Email Setup http://wlair.us.to/blog/2020/01/09/my-email-setup/index.html
I have questions for people using a device instead of a passphrase for full disk encryption
1) how is it safe if you always carry your computer with the physical key?
2) do you have copies of the key? (usb sticks are not known for being reliable :/)
I still use passphrase and it's super boring to type password when trying kernels or doing updates.
@mwlucas If the man-pages for ed(1) on Linux are any indication, they're likely rubbish placeholder text, potentially with a corresponding GNU-info page cross-reference. The info page might have more info than the man page, though often still wanting when it comes to content and organization and you're stuck reading it in the info-viewer. For least-bad results, I find myself exploiting info's tty-detection and piping to less
$ info ed | less
#psa You should probably stop using Startpage.com as a search engine.
#Startpage appears to have sold out to a company called "System1" who are a "pay-per-click behavioral ad company"
Please boost for exposure.
A lot has changed in the last 2 months. I was approved for SSI, then I moved from the US to Finland, got married and got permanent residency in Finland. I went from living in abject poverty to being financially secure. I don't live alone and no longer have to worry about someone finding my dead body in my apartment because there was no one to call emergency services. It sill feels unreal that life can change this much.
The Gold password, in case anyone wants it:
