Bitwarden password manager - anyone using it ?

The safest way to go these days seems to be unique random passwords for every site that needs a login . Other members have mentioned this in another recent thread :- https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=285984 So a password manager is going to be needed , and from what I've read , Bitwa...

Re: Over 1 Billion Login Credentials Leaked

I had a test run with it a few months ago and was fairly satisfied. A major downside for me was missing Thunderbird support, a major upside the possibility to host the Bitwarden server locally. In the end it for me fell short of simply using e.g KeePassXC but that in part due to me simply not react...

Re: Remote desktop

I found a post on Mint subreddit recommending NoMachine, downloaded and installed it. Worked out of the box first time and v easy to use. Using in a linux only environment across three machines. It's also available for win so no reason to suppose that it won't work in a mixed environment. Nice one ...

Re: Over 1 Billion Login Credentials Leaked

For the same reasons, I have been considering these past few days to move away from Lastpass to Bitwarden. If you are taking it for a "road-testing" I would really appreciate If you wanted to share your experience and thoughts about it. Yes , I'll do that , but I will start a new thread .... .... d...

Re: Over 1 Billion Login Credentials Leaked

...... Personally I use different random passwords for every site so I'm not all that bothered since a breach to one site will be contained to that site. Same here . I'm about to start " road-testing " Bitwarden to manage them all , and I'm wondering if others here have used it . Open source and cr...

Re: Running off Live USB stick permanently?

Definitely not a good plan , for all of the negative reasons mentioned above .

Re: How to combine several quotes from different users in one post?

..... Do they select the text quotes from several users manually (copy paste) and then put quotes tags around it themselves? Or is there an easier way that I am overlooking? Good question .

Re: Need help with bash script...

Also, I agree about python : I also find the syntax super-weird... I probably dislike the most that you even have to indent comments properly. Leave my comments alone. :D Have you ventured down the Ruby road at all ? Now that really is irritating when it comes to indents and spaces .... :lol:

Re: Best way to remote into my desktop

Like jimallyn , I've always used VNC for Raspberry Pi access in particular , and Teamviewer for everything else
( or plain old ssh if only a remote terminal is needed ) .

People have recommended that I try Anydesk or Remmina but I haven't done so yet .

Anybody here tried either of those two ?

Interesting stuff .
Accounts of near-death experiences are remarkably consistent , across all cultures .
People who have also used ayahuasca/DMT report similar things .
