Use a password manager! Even something like iCloud Keychain or Chrome PW are a good start. Even better, Bitwarden is available on like every platform, is open source, encrypted, has a bomb free tier, and works with things like FaceID and Windows Hello. It IS worth it!

Tonight! On Inspired Unreality Ari and the Milyagon witch continue researching the potion book that Ari's cat Tude found near the witch's garden. So far they have tested a brew that enables far sighted telescopic vision. When stirred with the silver wand King Groads sent to the witch they also enabled microscopic vision. A kind of a scrying tea with a twist. They have decrypted another recipe that may be a love potion.
Join us on Inspired Unreality tonight to test a love potion or just to chat about gaming. Everyone is welcome. All gaming is on topic.
Inspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chatrooms every Monday night at 9:00 at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you haven't been we have an invite for you here.
Every gamer knows about thieve's cant, words and symbols only thieves know. Inspired by Ari's book discovered on Inspired Unreality I am working on Witch's Chicken Scratch, a kind of shorthand that witch's in the past used to record the exact ingredients in their teas and potions. Since they knew their ingredients and how they blended them together all they needed was a short list to remind them exactly what they used.
Silent letters ignored, past witch's scrawled geometric figures in neat rows as a way of remembering their recipes while at the same time concealing them from prying eyes. Witches do love their secrets.
Ari and the Milyagon witch have deciphered two recipes so far. One is at the top of the page. Here are the witch's notes that she made while reseaching the book.

Perform Linux memory forensics with this open source tool
A computer's operating system and applications use the primary memory (or RAM) to perform various tasks. This volatile memory, containing a wealth of information about running applications, network connections, kernel modules, open files, and just about everything else is wiped out each time the computer restarts.
Upgrade your Linux PC hardware using open source tools
In my article on identifying Linux performance bottlenecks using open source tools, I explained some simple ways to monitor Linux performance using open source graphical user interface (GUI) tools. I focused on identifying performance bottlenecks, situations where a hardware resource reaches its limits and holds back your PC's performance.
The paper bag rustled and fell over. It continued to crinkle a bit longer before the cat decided it was bored and went to seek a spot in the sun, where it found a most amazing cardbox box that was perfect for a nap.
The genie watched over the dozing feline until it roused to search for a meal - a bowl of kibble was conjured.
If humans were this easy to satisfy, or this cute, I would never have retired, the genie reflected.
Tonight on Inspired Unreality our opening topic will be really old school. RPGs predating D&D. Whether you played back in the day or just have some knowledge about it we will be glad to hear your input.
Inspired Unreality open game chat is held every Monday night at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you are new to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invitation for you here.

Tonight! Inspired Unreality! Open game chat at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Our opening topic will be magic systems. ZDL mentioned the Native American influences in Gunnerkrigg and it got me to thinking about how a magic system based on Native American folklore would work. Spirituality, talking to animals, sweat lodges, drugs, transmutation. Magic systems are a fascinating part of RPGs and fantasy literature. Join us tonight for an interesting discussion.
As always bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you have never been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.
Start programming in Deno, an alternative to Node.js
Here, I will help you quickly get started with Deno by explaining:
When you're scripting with Bash, sometimes you need to read data from or write data to a file. Sometimes a file may contain configuration options, and other times the file is the data your user is creating with your application. Every language handles this task a little differently, and this article demonstrates how to handle data files with Bash and other POSIX shells.
Linux powers the internet, confirms EU commissioner
In 20 years of EU digital policy in Brussels, I have seen growing awareness and recognition among policymakers in Europe of the importance of open source software (OSS). A recent keynote by EU internal market commissioner Thierry Breton at the annual EU Open Source Policy Summit in February provides another example—albeit with a sense of urgency and strategic opportunity that has been largely missing in the past.
Identify Linux performance bottlenecks using open source tools
Computers are integrated systems that only perform as fast as their slowest hardware component. If one component is less capable than the others—if it falls behind and can't keep up—it can hold your entire system back. That's a performance bottleneck. Removing a serious bottleneck can make your system fly.
