If it had better password manager integration, #midori would have been top of my list.
Slow progress is progress, right?

Day 63: Finally purchased a Protonmail account purchased and finally migrated my primary work email across.
It's a pity that one can't set up more e-mail forwarders on an account - means I couldn't wholeheartedly recommend it to clients.
I'm content just now - waiting for mobile conversation view to grace my prescence :)
Nice. A simple page to determine what sort of information your browser is leaking to every site that you visit: http://webkay.robinlinus.com/
PSA: Stop labelling people interested in OPSEC and privacy as "paranoid". Paranoia is a mental illness, heavily influenced by fear, that makes someone believe they're under constant threat even when there is no evidence for thinking so.
Being careful about your online identity, privacy, taking care of your passwords, and using second factor authentication is not paranoia. It's common sense.
There are malicious actors who want to get their hands on as much information as possible. This is fact.
That #delightful moment when you realise that you're being force to switch a project to run on Linux. Oh noes.
Day 41: Finally found a promising music player to replace Google Music - Poweramp.
It wouldn't have taken this long, but previously I had rejected Poweramp when I was looking for my first music player as it didn't have features I needed that the Google app contained. It does now.
Running with the free trial just now, but will buy the full version when I've been using it for a bit.
It is proven! I am oldtinfoil on Keybase: https://keybase.io/oldtinfoil/sigchain#30d42fb6d34b2d6423e91f9f6cdfb951fac6fa2a21a16fb970a4fbdec192a2d20f
Day 13: Still arsing around trying to find an email provider that I like. Protonmail appealed, and fully willing to pay the £5/mo for my email.
However, the app doesn't have a "conversations" view and I'm having email management flashbacks of the late 90s / early naughties.
I don't think I can go back to that time.
UX people: any tips on ending endless meetings about Fonts? #halp
Day 6: Found myself using #youtube for listening to music again. Although I do have a paid #spotify account, I find it's suggestion features to be woeful. #last.fm has been the best for me, but its integrations are spotty and often distracts me.
PT's talk on how much we don't know about our own computers raises the worrysome concern that we can't build more secure systems without knowing what undocumented configuration and debugging backdoors are built into our hardware. https://i.blackhat.com/asia-19/Thu-March-28/bh-asia-Goryachy-Ermolov-Intel-Visa-Through-the-Rabbit-Hole.pdf
