"When I feel challenged, I ask Heaveny Father for guidence, and Heavenly Father gives me direction. If I listen, I am usually rewarded."
Turns out this language is Mormonism. Jesus Christ, Mother of Mary...
Probably not just Mormon, as I've heard it used by other Christians.
Mormons call him, "Heavenly Father," as a proper noun. Like, if they met Him, they would address Him that way. "Heavenly Father, I beseech you to have mercy on me!" I'm not quite getting it right here, but it is in the manner of speech in how they use it. If you hear a person say something like, "If I am in doubt, I ask Heavenly Father for guidence, and He grants it to me in His wisdom," you're not talking to a Catholic or a Protestant. We recognize it as something *different* than us, and they're using it that way for that reason. It is a special language that conveys in-group membership.

Yup. It definitely conveys a different, more direct relationship with God Himself than say, a Protestant or Catholic would express.
We would refer to the Lord... God...
Jesus is kind of our go-between - as Protestants - and Mary, if you're a Catholic. But both kind of operate on an assumption that God is busy and although He doesn't miss *anything* - you better only invoke him personally if your car is about to go over a cliff.
By which time it's probably too late.
But you knew that.
Has anyone experience or thoughts on various password manager schemes
Funny that this was the inaugural message in this room in 2015, because I have the same question now.
I'm giving some consideration towards letting the browser generate and remember my passwords to various sites, instead of keeping track myself and letting the browser remember it merely as a convenience.
What's trustworthy these days? What's reliable? Sig, did you have any luck with the hardware token? Like most people these days, I'm using Chrome, but there's always the concern that anything tied to Google is problematic. Lastpass?
Keepass? Something else?

I would not let my web browser administrate my password.
For less important stuff, I have pass (I think it is packaged as password-store for debian), which is a CLI password manager. I have it on a self-hosted shell account. This way I can access my password manager from anywhere I have a secure terminal for sshing into my server.
The compromising stuff lives in a Tails intance and is stored in Keepassxc. So ti is encryted twice: once at filesystem level, anothe at application level.
The really important stuff I learn by heart. I have some of those passwords noted down in a notebook and stored in a safe just in case I am put to pressure one day and cannot remember a password.
I use LastPass. It is centralized but also locally stored in an encrypted store. I'm able to sync across multiple browsers/machines, plus I can use it on my phone. The phone app also pops up options to autofill for other apps on my phone, which is convenient.
Mozilla has rolled out a VPN service of its own. The interesting part is not that it's from Mozilla, but that it's based on WireGuard. I've been watching the WireGuard project very closely and have been considering setting up a VPN of my own with it.
WireGuard is *very* lean compared to IPSEC.
