Hello Fediverse. My name is Emanuel - i am an 80's computer kid. Worked in IT since the middle of the 1990's, mostly in eCommerce and video games. I have a burning passion for: my family and kids, programming, digital content creation, demoscene (my handle is "tubo") , IT security and privacy protection, system tinkering and hacking, video game system hardware and many things more. Author of the Retrochecker video game collector app ( @retrochecker ) and the HAM GBA devkit.

I can confirm MBP 2018 Keyboard durability is crap. 3months in, my return key barely responds :-(

Toshiba rant: If you are tempted to buy a large USB HDD, do NOT get the Toshiba Canvio Basic 4TB. It's write speed is abysmal for some reason, no matter what format or system you use (continously decreases from the expected 100MB/s after writing a few GB of data, down to **less than 1MB/s** :-( ) - a quick search reveals i am not alone with this problem - Returning mine asap. Any tips for a good 4TB, 2.5 inch external drive?
