I’m getting moved in at 1776 Freedom Lane. Just a few boxes unpacked so far. I have backups set up going to the slug, and am getting mail in Thunderbird. I knew the house came furnished with some nice accessories, but was pleasantly surprised to see how easy it was to use one of the features.
One thing that really stands out is I can waste time wandering around the web in GNU/Linux just as effectively as I could in Windows. (This post should have come out on Monday.)
Very easy to get both TrueCrypt and EncFS installed and working. I’d need Truecrypt to read from my encrypted Windows stuff, and EncFS for that stuff in its new home. Mostly needed for financial stuff, mail, and my personal writing. (That is: it’s not just for pr0n.)
