Keys, Linus uses a switch as a key holder.

Every key has a small ethernet cable with an RJ45 so you can connect it to the switch, and because it's RJ45, it locks as well.

Quite neat tbh.


If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

Spying on everyone to fight against terrorism is like shooting a mosquito with a cannon

what do you mean keys?

locking keys

 

for some reason i envision an rj45 jack with the wires terminated in a certain way, hence key

Well you could make a dummy ethernet "alarm" by having them wired back on themselves so the switch would see when they're removed, though I think the switch would be confused by seeing it's own MAC. Could also just put a PoE load if the switch supports PoE, and then detect removal of the load.

20:19, that moment when Linus shows he's actually American. ?


What is actually supposed to go here? Some people put their specs, others put random comments or remarks about themselves or others, and there are a few who put cryptic statements.

Can someone know what is the reference for the clock on the wall ?

Thanks

You know... one of these. 

Big apple fan Linus is not.  Though a funnier troll would be if everything was XBox themed.  Being a big PCMR guy.

As a ketchup hoarder as well, there is absolutely nothing wrong with excessive amounts of ketchup.

Two thumbs up for the effort, but seriously, why can't you just give the guy his old office back?

Can we get a link to those shelving units? Assuming they're Ikea?

I'm pretty sure those are from Ikea's Pax wardrobe series.

If memory serves me right, they blurred his key chain in previous videos too, probably has something confidential along with his keys.

Probably has something to do with their server.
