    On my keys I have a Leatherman Squirt PS4 which comes in handy quite a lot. I also carry a Yubikey 5 NFC hardware security key which handles all my 2 factor needs. (One of these days I'll look at setting up my SSH private key on it too)

    Other than that I normally have a little A6 or A7 notebook with a pen, my phone and my wallet.

    My use case for Invidious is basically my RSS reader takes it's channel feeds and then displays the video ad free on the page. I'm considering doing something similar to the author, only it dumps out a html page into a folder on my web server and then updates it's own special RSS feed which my reader picks up and shows. Potentially with some disk space allocation type logic. (this feed gets 10gb to play with, once it goes over start deleting the oldest stuff)

    Honestly Pikmin is something I DESPERATELY wanted back in the Gamecube days but I didn't have a Gamecube. I may end up picking this up just to see if it lived up to the hype in my head.

    I've got a Logitech joystick that I bought years ago for ARMA 3. I'm seriously considering biting the bullet and buying my first flight sim with this though!

    I usually recommend Malwarebytes Anti Malware if you want something other than just Windows Defender

    On a related note - What IRC client are people using on Windows these days? I use IRSSI on my Debian machine but I've never really found a client I love on Windows.

    The Australian contingent still seems to mainly be on IRC. The Discord has an Australian channel but when I was on there there didn't appear to be any activity

    I lurk on Quakenet for Xonotic because that game hasn't joined the 21st century yet. I like the idea of using IRC more but I never really start

    Yes this is needlessly destructive and should stop but at the same time, I kind of love it. In a way, it's a return to the hacking of the 90s and 00s where it wasn't all about profit, sometimes it's just about defacing something to show you've been there.

    I got in to a good routine of getting out for runs regularly for a while there and then we had a stretch of really rainy cold weather and I've gotten out of practice!

    I'm experimenting with getting up a little earlier and going out before work while I'm working from home and it seems to be less horrendous than I remember. I think the key is consistency though.
