1password!

https://1password.com/sign-up/

it's $3/mo or $5/mo when billing is shared with up to 5 people. (BTW, none of the 5 people can see one anothers passwords unless they explicitly choose to share.)

Can't go wrong with 1password tbh

Oh yea! I skimmed the article to the end originally and I realize I came off as more negative than I intended lol

I appreciate the input the author has too. For historical appreciation of videogames, I really think it's important people know that emulation and media like these restorations aren't true to the source.

E.g. I love Shovel Knight and The Messenger and all the modern pixel-art aesthetic but they aren't replicating the real look of pixels blasted onto a CRT. I have a strong memory of being surprised by the realism of the hand in SNES clue. The dithering looks different when it's a tad fuzzy. I know this is a lukewarm take but I'm excited for if indie devs experimentally regress in technology, and are releasing experimental games for specialized hardware with shitty displays (or whatnot). Like Panic's 'PlayDate' with a monochrome display and a hand-crank.

This is the first I heard of this trend and I'm binging these once I'm out of this meeting. I see what the author is going for but I am excited nonetheless

Funny enough, not on the default Files app, but at least on an officially-supported client (plus most "good" file managers I'm aware of.)

Something I dislike with Apple products is that so much basic functionality is locked behind expensive apps. I need to pay $10 to get a calculator on my iPad or $20 to control audio volume per-app on MacOS. So it's very refreshing to me that Samba support is built in to Files.

This is exactly what I did to get files from my computer to my phone! Samba is what got me both directions. 'Samba' is a popular server that follows the SMB network protocol.

Samba really is where it's at. I'll make a small guide. This is for Ubuntu. I am using a Raspberry Pi with an SD card. Nothing too special, since this is just a transitory space for transfering files.

Here's what I do on Ubuntu. You might want to make a new user just for the Samba share, since the SMB username is taking from users on the machine.

# install samba
sudo apt install samba

# allow samba through firewall
sudo ufw allow samba

# make a file for the samba share
mkdir /home/USERNAME/samba

# edit the conf to add the lines
sudo vim /etc/samba/smb.conf

# add these lines to smb.conf
[sambashare]
    comment = Samba on PiHole
    path = /home/USERNAME/samba
    read only = no
    browsable = yes

# set a password for the samba share
sudo smbpasswd -a USERNAME

# start the samba server
sudo service smbd restart

Then, on the iPad or iOS device, add a network location (Files > three dots). You'll need the local IP of your Samba server. The details will be like:

  1. Address: `smb://192.168.1.123`
  2. Username: USERNAME used to set start Samba on Ubuntu
  3. Password: Password set with `sudo smbpasswd -a USERNAME`

There's a bug on iPadOS and iOS where the share will be read-only until you disconnect and reconnect to the server. You may need to do that a few times, or restart your device.
