This may seem strange, but I'm wondering if anyone in the fediverse has any experience running Veracrypt containers on 3.5 inch floppy disks? If so, what was your experience?

@jordyd Yeah! There's multiple levels of comparison imo. You can compare apples to orange when talking about which fruit you like better. You can compare apples to apples when talking about what variety of apple you like best.

I don't want websites and the companies that own them to manipulate me into staying longer. I don't want them actively attempting to exploit weaknesses in my brain. I don't want to be controlled.

Dream job idea: interplanetary IT and security. For when ppl actually go to mars/moon long term and need to be connected to the internet, which should prob happen soon after I graduate college
