I use Proton Mail for anything important.

 

The password used to log in is 32 characters of data from /dev/urandom run through base64. The password used to decrypt the mailbox is also 32 characters of data from /dev/urandom.

 

I store said passwords in my password manager. It's protected by 15 word passphrase. The password manager is also stored on my encrypted disk, which is protected by a separate 15 word passphrase, or in physical backups, which are protected by another 15 word passphrase.

 

The passphrases are generated from a dictionary of 10,000 words.

 

I highly doubt even state actors are capable of accessing my email so long as Proton Mail's promises about its client are true.

Somehow I knew that veiva's email security would have an integrity that makes Fort Knox look like a gas station haha

Honestly, I am considering of moving over all my important passwords and accounts to a new mail address. Over the past 7 years I've had little trouble with my current mail address, but it would help clean up the mess I made in the past. Likely that, if I do this, the current mail address will still be used for the day to day usage, but anything related to an account will move over to the new one. Probably will try to make it more secure too, but what Veiva has done might indeed be over the top.

I enter two passphrases at most a few times a day: the password manager passphrase and my disk passphrase. Just depends on how often I turn off my computer. My computer is off whenever I'm not home or if I'm sleeping.

 

Proper security practices are really not much more effort if implemented correctly.

 

Regardless, I really suggest Proton Mail for an email host if you don't need IMAP support.

I only have the loosest idea of what IMAP is/does but I may look into Proton

IMAP lets you use an email provider with any email client. For example, Thunderbird or Outlook.

 

Proton Mail does have apps for iOS and Android, so for most it makes no difference. I use Thunderbird for non-sensitive e-mail accounts. It helps create a distinction between sensitive and non-sensitive to prevent mistakes. It's why I have two user accounts, for example: one for unimportant doodling and one for important work.

If only a certain democratic candidate held your knowledge of emails haha. I for some reason have always been opposed to email apps or just in general opening/using email on a mobile device. It's secured desktop or nothing. Maybe it's slightly paranoid, but I trust my desktop more than my phone for no reason in particular

I made an attempt to add a player sprite (it's wearing a primal chestplate and a shadow silk hood)

It looks a lot better than the stupid white square, but man I need to get a lot better at drawing. And I need to figure out how to make it stand out better against the background

You could try some kind of a lighter color that outlines the character which is not used extensively in the background.

If we are talking about Celsius, then it has never ever even been +40 here. But it has been -40 :) .

 

In general, our summers peak with something like 32 degrees celsius. And right now we have -2 outside. Nice and slippery.

 

Anyone in here has played or is playing disc golf? It's a fun game, doesn't take too much effort nor funds (until you get crazy into it, which is easy to do).

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Never played disc golf, although I have thought about it before, just never had/made a chance. The second half though is true of most hobbies though, generally there is a low entry/starting cost but you can likely spend as much as you want on it.

I haven't played in a few years, but I used to play a fair amount of it. It really is fun as long as everyone in your group is around the same skill level.

In my project, I use a server-client setup. There's a single server that handles dispatching messages to clients. The protocol is implemented in a C++ library.

 

And I sped up the send method by 145x in my project. I use move semantics instead of copying data everywhere. It's amazing how much faster everything is.

I'm going to start working on making a twitter clone just as an excuse to practice node/angular/mongodb. 

 

I normally hate dealing with web stuff so I might as well get used to it again.

That's a great idea. I would recommend steering away from Mongo though since it's notoriously lousy to work with when you have relational data. I recommend using Postgre, but there are a ton of good options out there. Or, honestly, you could get by with just redis.

Today I got paid ~$90 after taxes/held wages to talk shit on a guy who didn't understand that corporations are people but LLC's are entities and browse reddit while I contemplate jumping out of my 13th story window. Dear lord I hope Rogue 1 is worth it tomorrow

I bought a new motherboard and it was dead on arrival  :(

 

Looks like I gotta mess around with customer support to get a replacement. Glad I went with newegg they're pretty good about replacing parts

As a somewhat big Star Wars fan, I am not at all excited for Rogue One. I'm sure it won't be a complete cash grab or anything, but I just have no investment in the characters. I don't think I'm going to go see it until I know that it will be worth my time/money.

I'm super excited for Rogue One. It's great to be able to experience the new EU as from the beginning as new content comes out. A lot more people will be able to participate in in-depth Star Wars discussion now that they aren't 10 years too late to jump into an established EU.

I'm surprised it took this long for a non skywalker star wars movie. 

 

If you view it with the same standards as a game such as knights of the old republic then I think it can be entertaining.

I mean, it's hard to have emotional investment in characters you've never seen because this is a brand new movie.

Holy shit the characters in Rogue One are good. Like you can pretend it's not a star wars movie and it's still fantastic. I'd love a prequel prequel about some of the Rogue fighters (mainly the Mongolian Heavy and the Monk dude). I say it this way to not spoil anything because I think all star wars movies are enjoyed best with as little spoiled as possible. Even with prior star wars knowledge, the crazy shit that happens is so much fun to watch. I loved it

I'm probably not going to watch it since I didn't like foa all that much.

 

But in the movies defense most Star Wars movies are corny.

 

A Phantom Menance

Attack of the Clones

Return of the Jedi (the special effects haven't aged well at all and the jabba the hut/ewok scenes defintely played into lucus thinking jar jar was a good idea)
