I getcha, I'm just in that awkward middle ground where I know enough about tech stuff to understand why it's good but not enough to be satisfied that it's secure. I'm probably bein way too cautious about this and not cautious enough about other stuff tho.

so as someone who is more tech savvy than the average person but not as much as an IT professional, I've always been wary of password managers. they remind me of those phone cases that have space to put your cards and cash in: a great way to lose your phone and wallet at the same time.

while I get that this is a specific case and relies on user error while doing stuff I wouldn't do, the conclusion is that there are genuine security flaws in the way google handles/d password management. So how can I, as someone who doesn't have the time or knowledge to verify things like this, be sure that a password manager I'm using is safe? This is a genuine question btw. I know that my current password method is somewhat insecure, but I feel like password management is relying too much on the integrity of someone else's server and code that I can't verify.

I rate it 10/10 because it sounds fun. I rate it 0/10 because I love word games but none of my board game pals like them so I never get to play them :C

https://www.copypastecharacter.com/ is a useful character map (I know there's one built into windows but I find this more convenient due to the way it sorts stuff)

https://thealexandrian.net/ is a blog by a guy who's been GMing tabletop RPGs for yonks, and wrote the Infinity RPG among other things. Lots of good resources on GMing there, and it always gets me in the mood to run a game when I read it.
