Password Management
or The Virtue of Being Forgetful

patdavid.net/2018/05/password-

I recently started using a password manager ful-time, and the ability to let go of so. many. passwords. in my brain is like a huge relief. Now I just need to remember The One Password, and all else will follow.

One Pass to rule them all, one Pass to find them, One Pass to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

I installed a bunch of @fdroidorg apps on my phone last night.

I'm impressed!

Simple Calendar, Simple Gallery, Simple File Manager ... very nice! Also Tasks and Omni Notes and Orgzly. Phone Saver, PhotoBackup, Vinyl Music Player... My phone suddenly feels like a useful computer!

These apps may be simpler than mainstream alternatives, but no ads and no spying is a HUGE feature.

The Google Play Store is so full of crapware, I dread using it. F-Droid is very refreshingly better in that regard.
