It is. WD is only 2nd.

As a Biometric Systems major and after recently starting to store tons of different cryptocurrencies in all manner of different wallets and online exchanges recently, I realized I need to revamp my password security.

I guess we've all seen the XKCD meme about how having a long password is better than a short, complex password. How should I structure my password selections so that the following criteria are met:

1. Fairly long for >dat security, but consisting of actual dictionary words in order to keep it easy to remember/type in

2a. Have each password be different for each site for uniqueness,
2b. and have each respective site's password contain a mnemonic memory jogger corresponding to said site. For example, my gmail pw might be: "Longpasswordforjewmail" and Citi credit card pw be: "Walkingthroughthec1t1"

3. Standardized format to start (or end) each password with. So maybe I start gmail like "Longasspasswordforjewgle" and Citi with "Longasspasswordforc1t1"...obviously being a little moore individualized than something as vanilla as that.

I'm sure there's an easy and concise way to do this, I just want it to be simple and to not be way too autistic about it. Any suggestions?

Should I build new desktop computer or laptop/workstation with GPU passthrough and dock to save electricity?
3 posts and 1 images submitted.
>>
You should use Elixir
>>
>>62216268
Here's what you need to know about GPU passthrough.

1. It's a bitch and a half to set up
2. Does not support SLI or CrossFire
3. Unless you have an iGPU or extra GPU you are going to lose any sort of GPU performance for your main OS
4. A lot of audio issues
5. Bloat of your main OS plus bloat of your sub OS means slightly less FPS
6. Unless you want super tight security, running Windows with wsl is probably going to better in every way

They're good to have if you frequently use applications that can take advantage of it.

However I've gotten used to using my phone for 2 step authorization, so a key dongle wouldn't really be any significant advantage.

Why are Snaps and Flatpacks still not bankrupt and finished when Appimage exists?
I mean, with this motherfucker you even can run applications on a live system.

Is there a downside to this format?

>Is there a downside to this format?

It is designed to run on systems with a "normal" desktop metapackage installed. "No need to install anything, just download it and run" is a lie, it HAS external dependencies. If you use a minimal or source based system you will run into missing libraries. Problems will rise if you cannot install the missing deps for one reason or another (no rights to install, live system does not support installing software etc).

>>62216085
Because they are different. Appimage is much like portable apps while snaps/flatpaks are sandboxed

Hardware limitation, likely the clock generation circuits cannot divide down lower than that:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phase-locked_loop

The other explanation could be that at lower clock speeds maximum time between refreshes of dynamic memories could be violated (registers or perhaps DRAM).
