… and the name of the only chinese character is “Cho Chang”. i honestly dont give a shit about anything rowling ever said or didnt said about trans stuff, but calling harry potter “good writing” or “not racist” … idk if i should laugh or cry.

i also dont really get it. the bitwarden pw tester says it will take 14 years to crack “its.a.beautiful.day”, write beautiful with 2 t`s and it will take “centuries”? 🧐

but yes i still use them. but always with numbers and random characters in between and words from multiple languages or fantasy words.

but even 14 years seems long for a pharase that is said and written millions of times per day. and if those crackers can make billions of guesses per second how can they not guess both variants within minutes?

related question. how to make a good password bettter? adding a few extra special symbols like “µ£₹” or one long word like “freshwatercrocodiletesticles”?

for email there is an easy solution. create a shared alias on addy, confirm it as your recovery email, forget the alias 👌

Are you sure you need the UEFI mode and not the legacy BIOS mode?

im not. and i dont even understand that question 🙈

but the stick is new and should not be too bad: vi.aliexpress.com/item/1005006057488603.html

omg pls do digress! like i said, im reallly open to other distros.

Appreciate it a lot, thanks. What Distro would you recommend running from a USB?

Beside security concerns about stuff that I don’t understand, my only real needs are:

  • Kleopatra (to generate keys and passwords my Windows will never know about)
  • And this fucking App that will not connect to the internet on Tails.

like i said, i tried mint, does not work from that stick, only tails works. what i want to achieve is not much:

  • create files that i cannot decrypt in my windows, even if i have the keys or the password, which i both dont have. (already done in tails)
  • run this one single app on a secure usb, so when my windows or phone have a virus/stolen/lost, this app is not there and not in danger.

seems to involve disabling secure boot, not happy with that. will cause more paranoia 😬

ok, appreciate your time and insight. thanks!

ah crazy, i made it work with Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS!

For some reason i had to unplug the PC before restarting. Then it got found as UEFI and could boot.

The full installation on the USB was a bit dirty, as i put the Live Ubuntu in a Virtual Machine and installed it from there. So i typed the full disk encryption and login passwords in Windows … but I wont be too paranoid about that one now 😅

what about the crushing? will it be imminent? like there is a small failure somewhere in the tunnel and all passengers are crushed within a second? no way im ever going on that.

cool, didnt even think about that. i asked a scientist GPT and

…the remains of the human would likely follow a trajectory similar to the initial ejection path. The trail could potentially extend for kilometers … However, the trail would not be uniform. It would likely start more concentrated and become increasingly dispersed over distance …

basically.

even minimal metadata for example from signal contains

Message dates and times

Message senders and recipients (via phone number identifiers)

From these 2 pieces of information, its possible to build social graphs: who talked to who, and when they did it. Also, who’s in a group chat with who else.
