  2. Been using Wayland for years at this point. Been a very smooth experience, save with a few apps that needed to be updated and dragged into the 21st century.

    Yup, pipewire has been a godsend when you want to handle multiple streams, filters and effects without the complexity of jack.

    Good show guys. Thanks!

  3. A good basket is better than a bad basket is better than no basket.

    Probably the safest place for TOTP is on an OnlyKey, then a separate device like a phone, then separate software, then a single good basket like Bitwarden or KeePassXC.

    Balance what you need with what you’d like with what’s available.

  4. I have considered using TOTP under Bitwarden but have not tried it yet. Currently, I have my TOTP stored in Standard Notes which are encrypted and synced. Now that I am exploring another note and organization system, I might try Bitwarden with TOTP.

  5. The only thing that has held me back on using Wayland has been the Nvidia in my Oryx Pro. Eventually when I can afford another system, I will be going with a more forward thinking solution like AMD or if the Intel GPUs are capable of the limited gaming that I do.

    I have been following the Sway project and I like where they have been going with it. It would be nice to maybe see a distro that treated it and i3 as first citizens. So as if your system does not handle Wayland it has i3, but that config would also be usable if your system does support Wayland.
