Parkland students return from spring break to clear backpacks and TSA-style checkpoints submitted by chuck45532 to news

jammicsmith 1 points 30 points (+31|-1) ago

I'm confused. Didn't the guy show up at 2:20pm? With cases large enough to hold assault rifles? And a history that made him well known? Would it have made any difference if his cases were see through?? Was there anybody there to stop him? What the hell do they expect to accomplish with clear backpacks? Why is the response never something that would have prevented the tragedy? What the hell is wrong with these people!?!?

PSA: Don't buy or trust Western Digital with your data submitted by The_Venerable to technology

Always have redundancy, have at least 2 hard drives for backups. They're only $60ish for 2TB! or $150 for 8TB. Is your data not worth way more than this??

https://www.amazon_com/Elements-Desktop-Hard-Drive-WDBWLG0080HBK-NESN/dp/B07D5V2ZXD

and then encrypt and mount the drive yourself. attached drive will typically be recognized as mount as /dev/sdb (or /dev/sdc, /dev/sdd, etc)

cryptsetup -y --cipher aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 --key-size 256 luksFormat /dev/sdb1

once the drive is encrypted, you can decrypt and attach at your leisure.

cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 my_encrypted_disk

this will decrypt the partition, you can reference it at /dev/mapper/my_encrypted_disk

If this is the first time you decrypt it, put a filesystem on it

mkfs.ext4 /dev/mapper/my_encrypted_disk

and make a directory where you intend to mount it

mkdir /my_encrypted_folder

Once you've got a partition and mount point, mount it. If you've already partitioned the volume, skip previous steps and just mount it.

mount /dev/mapper/my_encrypted_disk /my_encrypted_folder

  • "my_encrypted_disk" and "my_encrypted_folder" can be any string, so you could have "ED1", "ED2" mapped to "/EF1", "/home/user/EF2" if you have multiple encrypted disks.

having multiple encrypted disks is critical. I would NEVER send it back to Western Digital and ask them to decrypt. If a hard drive fails, I drill a hole in it and replace it with a new one. Data is WAY too valuable to be concerned with the $60ish to replace a 2TB portable hard drive.

Oh, and when you want to remove the drive, unmount and then decrypt:

umount /my_encrypted_folder

cryptsetup luksClose /dev/mapper/my_encrypted_drive

Then you can unplug your removable drive.

I came from reddit due to the bullshit, that doesn't mean there's not good content on reddit. I don't go to reddit anymore, but I enjoyed this picture. If someone goes to the trouble of putting the good shit from reddit here, why is that a problem?

Resorts in Jamaica are facing an enormous sexual assault problem. submitted by Artofchoke to news

jammicsmith 2 points -1 points (+1|-2) ago

is 12 rapes in a year a lot? I mean sure, all rape is bad, but there's rape everywhere. Is this higher than other places on a per capita basis? Isn't that the number we should be comparing to conclude that there's a problem?

New rules for /v/aww submitted by absurdlyobfuscated to aww

PLEASE DON'T CENSOR AT ALL!!! (except illegal shit like kiddie porn).

Not going down this route is worth whatever is required. From my end, as an end user, I'm willing to deal with occasionally seeing something that makes me uncomfortable to keep free speech unconditional on voat!

Can we just flag the content? At whatever point a moderator would choose to delete the posts or ban the user, instead flag the post as "mod-del". If you would ban the user, auto-flag any posts by that user as "mod-del". Then allow users an option in their profiles to auto-hide any posts flagged as "mod-del".

We already have the ability to flag posts, this would require adding an option to flag users per subverse and auto flag posts per subverse based on the user flag. It would also require an additional checkbox in our user account "hide 'mod-del' flagged posts".

This doesn't censor anyone, but gives every user the choice to not see these posts. We can have our cake and eat it too! Well, except for @PuttItOut that would have to make a few code changes...

I could have been mistaken, but I interpreted "send everything to a PO box" as an attempt to prevent items you ordered from being associated with your address. I was pointing out that the two are linked. Judging by your response, that doesn't appear to be what you meant.
