G’day, fellow lobsterinos!
I need a new scheme for getting my passwords back in the unlikely event all my gadgets die (or are separated from me) at once. I was thinking an easy backup plan would be a cheap computer, some decryption software and a protected archive on it stashed somewhere with friends/family away from the rest of my stuff.
I thought about an RPI or similar, but I want something self-contained, and nothing too fiddly - it is after all just for an emergency.
So, I’m looking for something as cheap a possible which has the following qualities:
- Charges from USB-C, so the odds of finding a power supply 10 years from now are high
- Removable battery, so I can store it without the battery physically inside (in case of swelling), as well as buy a backup battery
- (Ideally) Removable SSD so I can replace it in a few years to extend the lifespan of the machine
- Performance and storage aren’t important, I won’t be using it for regular computing - neither is physical usability so I don’t care if the screen, keyboard and trackpad suck, so long as they’re likely to still work after sitting in a cupboard for 10 years.
