is keepass 2 the most secure password manager?

>how do you generate your 15-20 key password, as opposed to using a random generator? By taking a long word and l33t-spe&king it?
Partially this. I have no issue remembering dumb shit, especially if I made it up myself.
I'll use words or sentences as the "base" password, easy to remember for myself but illogical enough to prevent it from being guessed. Usually it's something I think of when the site/service is mentioned.

Rather than just changing "E" into "3" or "€", I change different characters based on crap in my head. For example (not used, obviously), a T gets changed into 800 (Terminator) or F into 16 (F16). These changes aren't always applied, depending on where the letters are or what other changes are already applied.

For example, instead of Password, I wouldn't use P@ssw0Rd, which I can imagine would be brute forced easily because it's pretty "logical" l33tspeak.
Instead it might be Ver800&$LauraCel0.

The base is Overtakexcel (Pass = Overtake and Word = Excel, simplistic as fuck but you get the idea).
T becomes 800 (Terminator model)
Ex becomes Laura
Ak becomes 47 (AK47)
Any "segment" of the password that is two numbers (47 in this case) become the special characters, reversed.

Why am I not surprised
And yet you reply
As long as you use it on a Foss desktop.
It's not as bad as it could be. However, the problem with all such methods is that if someone ever decided to add it to their bruteforcer, security would be significantly weakened. In your case, it's probably autistic enough that you'd need someone to target you personally to ever bother.
I think there are a couple of things you could improve. There's the old passphrase method: if you randomly select a word out of a dictionary of 10,000 (which is few enough that you should be able to keep only short words in there), and make a password out of six such words, you get ~80 bits of entropy which is pretty much all you'd ever need. And almost certainly a good bit more than your method.

More to your personal autism though, have you considered mental hashing? For instance, a guy called Blum made an algorithm that's supposedly cryptographically secure, and lets you generate a password for any website in 20-30 seconds with some practice, remembering only a couple of master mappings. Here's an article talking about it: https://scilogs.spektrum.de/hlf/mental-cryptography-and-good-passwords/

How safe is Arch Linux? Do they release security updates quickly enough?
11 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
This is so true. Yet, arch is still not for liberal basedevs.
I'm a brainlet and arch works just fine on my machine.

Just how stupid do you have to be to fuck up Arch?
safer than most cos packages are newer.
When I started with arch you actually had to write your own xorg.conf file in /etc/X11 dir before you could even run X
See for yourself: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Security_Team

We're not going quantify security for you - do it yourself.

My GPU's fans don't blow unless I'm doing some rendering or gaming, and as harmless as that sounds, my card is often warm, or even hot, to the touch. I'm looking through the driver UI to see if there's an option to keep the fan on, but there doesn't seem to be. I also don't think there's any options in the BIOS, but I haven't checked recently.

Anyone have solutions to this? Is this normal?

I was pretty hooked up with Botw at the time.
Terribad game if you ask me, but I was still hooked for some reason.
Was having 10+hours sessions, and/or just keeping it running in the background because it took minutes to launch it again.
You're obviously too dense to understand that GPU.cooling != VRAM cooling.

If you honestly think that your VRAM overheated while your GPU was chilling below whatever the zero rpm thershold is, then ok.

I mean you could just check VRAM temps in CEMU right now and see that it's fine even with no fans and you probably just got a lemon.
>check VRAM temps
except you can't do that, because there are no vram temp sensors.
I found that my r9 380 would idle at 70c just sitting at desktop with dual 1080p screens.
I'm not sure why sapphire thought this would be good idea in it default configuration.
I'm guessing it's not Sapphire's fault but AMD drivers that turns on 3D clocks when you connect two monitors.
It could also be your power settings in the driver options or the OS that triggered the card to never fully go idle.

have you switched to using monospaced fonts in your editor / IDE / terminal and if so which have you chosen?

No, and I still don't understand why you would want to since extra whitespace (indentations) is at the beginning of lines and shouldn't be used otherwise. This isn't dos/linux command line where you use to have no choice, it's stupid.

How the fuck do I go back to classic captcha? 4chanX seems to have removed the option.

For some reason the Clover app on my mobile works just fine and has a better captcha system, why cant I use that?

>Is there a minimalist extension for firefox or Chrome to toggle remove this whole area?
Not sure if this works on Windows, but here's how I do it with Firefox on Linux:

- Open your Firefox profile folder
- Create a "chrome" folder inside it
- Inside the chrome folder, create a userChrome.css file
- Put the following content inside the userChrome.css file:

* Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */
