Is it really a bad idea/security concern to keep a written backup of your passwords written in a notebook stored away in your room?
Do you do it?

Are there any better other non digital solutions?

If you're still paranoid just make sure the sites, usernames, and passwords aren't written letter for letter, basically encrypted in your own personal inside joke kind of way, or if you're bi- or multilingual in a different language.
Buy a safe and put your notebook in it.
Best non-digital solution imo.
Would a password manager with U2F be a reasonable solution? I was thinking of getting two U2F keys, having both unlock the password manager, then store one in a fireproof safe. Basically one "use" key and one "safe" key - not sure if it's necessary/overkill.

I've been looking into password managers and don't mind paying a bit for better UI - 1Password looks like the best option (friendly UI, encrypts cloud backups with masterkey, not too expensive at $3/mo, regular feature updates). Keepass is the OG, but UI is horrendous, and Bitwarden is only marginally better. Dashlane and Lastpass had inferior features/security from what I've read.

good taste, but I don't see any reason not to use Rust for a kernel -- you can interface with C libraries easily and having any necessary unsafe code explicitly marked with an unsafe block would make debugging and maintenance a lot easier

I got a Ghost S1 case, was planning to build powerfull and compact workstation into it...but thermals suck. So now it’s been standing there for months. I Also have some leftover PC parts laying around: The parts are pretty shitty (ryzen 1300x, 8gb ram, 870 ssd, Fatal1ty AB350) and I‘m missing a psu and a gpu. Should I just throw it together or get parts worthy for a 300$ case? What should I build? Already got a workstation, VR pc, render nodes and a retro pc.

It‘s an InWin Chopin. Comes with PSU. I had a miniature front panel 3d printed for mine, to make it look like a tiny version of my first pc (486)
Keep in mind that particular case doesn't have room for a discrete GPU.

What he says. If only makes sense with a Ryzen 2200G or 3200G and you need to remove some plastic from the stock cooler to make it fit. (Just pops off) check the benchmarks for the games you like to play for those systems. They are better than intel integrated stuff but still in the range of low end dedicated gpus.

Thanks for the information. I was hoping it could support a discrete GPU but I guess I'll just go with the SilverStone SG13 that I was planning to use. I hardly play AAA games often but there are also a handful AAA games I still play some what regularly. If it weren't for that I would go use with one of the Ryzen APU offerings.
Since this is clearly a stealth mITX thread, what's a good case that actually takes advantage of ITX graphics cards? Ideally one that also takes a SFX PSU and not a brick.

>has all the nice proprietary software that people actually use

Disagree. Quite a bit of Apple software aren't used (Garage Band rings a bell in this regards) and if anything many tend to move towards using multi-platform software such as VLC and Adobe suites.

In the case of VLC (and my preference of Audacity for Vinyl LP ripping) many of these software are open source but multi-platform tends to hold the key for many typical uses (and if said software is actually useful, etc).

>decent materials

Could be seen as a catch 22 but my opinion is potentially good set of materials used in a shit form factor and proportion.

I find that Apple's thinness over functionality is really hurting their performance factors with the Macs (the usual thermal protections being triggered resulting in reduced performance for CPU, GPU or both) and worst of all many complain these Macs (since 2016) are overheating due to how hot they are to touch but many such Macs are actually performing in their normal thermal operating ranges (thinner main bodies means operational heat is more likely to be physically felt by the operator, not an issue for 2015 models and before but not to say those models were entirely perfect).

Full double barrel of shit materials will always land on that shit keyboard design. Seriously fuck that keyboard they cut too many corners on that (if utilised properly it could have worked with far fewer issues but they cut corners too far, compare the external butterfly keyboards with the laptop keyboards and you would work out where I am going with this, but the external keyboards weren't entirely perfect though, not as bad as laptop keyboards though).

Lastly Aluminium is a weak material for impacts/ toughness but not an terrible material to use for a laptop body if designed correctly.

>very stable, difficult to break

Not entirely true. Incorrect shutdown (performing an Soft SMC reset instead of Shutdown from Menu Bar) can cause data corruption and so can new macOS releases if it is problematic due to early version issues (upgrade rather than standard OS updates).
Only downside to this argument is many different operating systems (Windows, Linux, etc) can share this property if set up and used properly (not all versions or distros apply) so this stability factor isn't Mac exclusive.

>more secure than windows

Almost anything is more secure than Windows but due to rising use in Macs these computers are no longer immune to viruses or App Store abuses as they once was.
Put simply Macs can get viruses and in many regards many Linux distros (not all) win over Mac in this area.

All crap put aside any computer's biggest weakness almost often lies with the operator rather than the operating system itself (somewhat universal overall).

>doesn't make you look like a weirdo or a poorfag if you use it on public

Grey area really. Older generations will see a Mac as a posh/ higher class design to use, but current and young gen are too busy looking at their mobile phones to care about the laptop you are using.

Do I write it as Linux or GNU/Linux in my CV?
33 replies and 10 images omitted. Click here to view.
Professionals call it Systemd+Linux
GNU/Linux, just writing Linux might imply you're experienced on kernel development and configuration
Though it only matters if the place you're applying for might care about kernel development/configuration, something not common unless specified in the description of the job
Also, if you're experienced in something that avoids GNU like Alpine Linux or whatever, you might want to specify that, Busybox and muslc are quite different to GNU corelibs and glibc from an administration and/or development standpoint
Specifying the distro altogether it's a better idea, since most HR fags will prefer someone with experience on RHEL or whatever to someone with experience on "Linux" or "GNU/Linux"

>But it's still extremely expensive to build and maintain those reactors
So what? The energy they provide is cheap.
He does though. Wind benefits from scaling up. There's almost never any point in building them any smaller than hundreds of kW, and no point in building them anywhere except an area that gets strong consistent wind. Solar also benefits from scale, but even deploying 5kW on an average roof will pay off big over the life of a home. The panels actually protect your roof, provide thermal decoupling which keeps your home cooler, will generate most of the nameplate for a period of every sunny day and only costs $15k. Even on cloudy days you'll likely get 30-50% output.
5kW of wind requires a tower. The total project cost will run into $40k+ territory. It WILL be noisy, when generating, your insurance company and potential homebuyers will be terrified by it, and it will only generate its rated output with 8-10 m/s (15-20 mph) consistent winds (gusty and constantly changing wind is worthless because of blade mass). Anything less than 4 m/s (8mph) and it will generate NOTHING.
Small wind turbines are literally the worst.
They're loud as fuck and spin stupid fast to generate anything worthwhile.

Surprise! They are.
It's just like fans. The smaller the faster they need to go, the more noise they make.
That's why wind farms employ stupid huge turbines, not piddly little things.
Small turbines are practically useless and on moderately windy days they get stupid loud.
Just put a solar panel there instead.

you have to find niche games that are too obtuse/hard at face level for normies
and the irony of this is that you almost never need a good computer for these games
they are designed to be ran on potatoes
the culture has definitely changed, but money changes things a little too. when you're young and can't just buy whatever the fuck you want on a whim there is more magic to dreaming of stuff you want to buy or building up to christmas where you hope you get something you want. now when you're old and have a job, and can have amazon deliver anything you want to you in 2 days, it's just not the same.
