    Hans Christian | Teri got a reaction from Natey1 in I'm Trying to Find the right Keyboard, and Mouse... but I'm feeling kind of overwhelmed at all the options. Can someone help me out?   
    As for mice, the Logitech Lightspeed (wireless) mice are all pretty good. A whole lot of people love the G502, I personally went with the G903 since it's ambidextrous and I'm a lefty (and I love it). As for the keyboard I'd stay wired for now. You say that you like the MBP 2013 keyboard (which I understand, I didn't swap out my 2013 MBPr until it died in August 2019, lovely thing), but do you prefer a laptop style low-profile keyboard or regular full-travel desktop switches? If the latter, Kailh, Gateron and most of the other Cherry-style copies are more than fine.
     
    The type of switch is a chapter and journey in itself. With a cardioid pattern condenser you probably want to stay away from blue switches, they are very noisy. If you like the tactile response that the MBP keyboard to some degree provides, I'd go with brown switches (which are also my favorite switches). They are both tactile and mostly silent. Black and red are both linear (and silent) and fine if you like that (with different actuation force). All of these switch types are available as a choice in almost every budget mechanical keyboard. 🙂 There is a mountain of YouTube videos describing this much better than me though. 🙂

    Eh, it is not in anyway feasible to bruteforce a bitlocker recovery password.
     
    If the attackers are in any way interested in the data and not just the ransom, they're going to go with option one or two. Option two seems like the most likely thing to happen as well, users are notoriously stupid (even the ones that aren't). It is obviously the job of a sysadmin to minimize the risk of this happening as well as minimizing the impact a compromised client can do. Sane e-mail policies are a good start (given that you have control over your companies email infrastructure).

    Hans Christian | Teri got a reaction from JTPOTATO in Raspberry Pi Zero WH Projects   
    Do you have a breadboard? If not definitely get one and some jumper cables, you'll need some resistors, LEDs etc as well to get started. 🙂
     
    If you have no experience I suggest starting out very simple following a blinking LED guide or similar, maybe putting your own spin on it once you've gotten it to work (like getting it to blink SOS in morse code or something similar). Take very good care when connecting stuff to the GPIO, it's a lot tougher on the wallet to fry a $14 Pi Zero than a $2 Arduino Uno. 🙂

    Hans Christian | Teri got a reaction from egemen404 in Intel macs OS life expectancy?   
    It is, but it kind of takes away the elegance of a MacBook I think. I'd still suggest a refurbished Thinkpad, which will be both cheaper and better supported. 🙂

    Hans Christian | Teri got a reaction from egemen404 in Intel macs OS life expectancy?   
    How long? My guess would be a couple of years. Historically speaking, Apple supported PowerPC Macs for 4 years after announcing the switch to Intel. I don't think Intel Macbooks will get any cheaper because of the switch to "Apple" silicon, they'd rather just not sell them then. It isn't really "Apple" to sell "second-rank" products.
     
    As in picking up an Intel Macbook to run Linux? I'd say overall a bad idea. For the past many years Macbooks have been fitted with Broadcom wifi adapters, and these are notoriously horrible with Linux. Some people have managed to get them to work under Linux, but most people (including myself) have found it absolutely impossible to live with. Their Linux drivers are proprietary (if they even exist for your specific adapter), and breaks at the blink of an eye. Spent a month trying to get it to work probably, both on LTS, standard and rolling release, and eventually got so fed up that I went back to OS X. Can not recommend.
     
    Wanna run Linux? Pick up a refurbished Thinkpad. Cheap and incredibly well supported.

    Hans Christian | Teri got a reaction from Filingo in Need monitor recommendation   
    32" 1440p is the same PPI as 24" 1080p, so that's not going to do you much good. 27" 1440p is the sweetspot I think, but the distance from you to the monitor is important as well. If you sit too close to your monitor, the individual pixels will be more perceptible. 4K sounds good on paper, but good even somewhat affordable 4K monitors don't exist currently.

    Hans Christian | Teri got a reaction from Benji in Motherboard missing ports?   
    Interesting. Looking at pictures of the board online, they don't have them either. I'm gonna go ahead and guess that the PCB is used for several different boards to keep cost down, and this particular version just doesn't have these features. Looking at the USB 3 circuitry, it looks like there is no controller installed as well, so that makes sense. As for the IDE port, you're not gonna miss that one, horribly outdated standard.
