With LastPass going to limit their free tier soon, would it be a good idea to do a "password manager as fast as possible" kind of thing? Maybe can add in a breakdown between popular ones? I reckon this may be helpful to a lot of people in this community / channel?
KAT Alpha + OEM Fog White Keycap Sets
BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK BLAAANKS!
For the uninitiated, the two keysets have different physical profiles. And both are advertised as PBT, but the KAT Alpha seems suspiciously smooth to my fingers. Hm...
I'm aware that Keyreative sells a set of ABS Blanks. Hoping they haven't pulled a fast one on me. Closer inspection is needed.
But first, dinner.
KAT vs. OEM vs. Cherry Profiles
Courtesy of Keycaps.info. Massive kudos to whomever that made and is hosting that site, it's a brilliant reference for keeb weebs. 😁👍
Impressionable legends and bright colorways are nice n' all, but 'Chew prefers beauty in subtlety. Even better if that subtlety disguises itself as something unremarkable at first glance.
Microsoft announced that it is making Power Automate Desktop, its enterprise-level tool for creating automated desktop-centric workflows, available to all Windows 10 users for free.
That could be useful for some users stuck doing repetitive tasks, I'm probably going to have a look at it now that it's free and see what it's all about and if it can be useful for me, and if I find any utility to it, I might look at what uses it can have at work.

Minimum Participation Requirements For Prizes
5 Days Activity

Folding@home is a network of volunteer computers distributed around the world that aims to perform biomedical research with the single intent of helping to further understand and develop cures for a range of diseases such as; Alzheimer's, cancer, and Parkinson's. The exact research that is done is simulating the 'folding' of proteins in the body, this is important because the function of a protein is directly related to its physical shape. And this, when the protein is created in the body it needs to reshuffle its shape to get into the correct structure to perform its task. Many illnesses can be linked to faulty proteins in the body such as many cancers and neurological issues, along with a wide number of other general health concerns.
If you are wondering what exactly has been done with all this computing power then you can check out the papers written by the scientists and researchers that use the folding network, I will warn you though many of them are very in depth reads and in turn this means they are often fairly technical.
PASSKEYS! (they're really important)
Don't forget to get yourself a passkey from the link below to ensure that you hit the points requirement, the passkey is a feature that was added a while ago to the Folding Client that helps to authenticate each user on the network, an added bonus of this is the fact that it allows you to qualify for QRB(Quick Return Bonus) Points, QRBs are extra points you earn for submitting work units more quickly, such as if you have faster hardware or let the client fold full time, rather than on idle. QRB credit is awarded after 10 WUs have been submitted. You can get your passkey from the link below.
COVID-19 still remains a massive priority for Folding@Home, we are here to continue to unite with the legion of other folders from around the globe who have taken up the fight against COVID-19.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common across the world. These viruses can cause mild symptoms ranging from a fever and cough to more serious conditions such as severe pneumonia, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
In December 2019, a new strain of coronavirus (Sars-Cov-2) was first identified in Wuhan City, China. This virus has now spread to affect practically every human population on the planet. It is the largest health crisis seen in 100 years and a massive global concerted effort has been launched to find a cure, a vaccine or even the simplest form of treatment. And that is where folding@home comes in, partnered with The Covid Moonshot team; the folding network is being used to find existing drugs that could prove to be an effective treatment for the virus.
This is just a PSA for the new guys here, the folding team is a small close knit community, so here's a few things I'd like you all to keep in mind. It doesn't hurt to say thank you, if someone has genuinely helped you out don't forget to drop a reaction on their posts, help others where ever you can and finally we are a team first and always.
Check your stats out here! Bare in mind it can take some time for your first WUs to appear so leave it a day or two.
Please follow the guides below to help with set-up and troubleshooting. These are mostly older guides but are still quite useful for most things.
LTT Tumbler. Little surprised by how...subtle the LTT branding is. I figured it'd be more prominent. I had to take like 3 pictures to get the right light to even make it visible, and even then it's not very clear.
