1. 1

    People don’t care that an application is a streamlined 3MB or a big round 200MB boy – they care that it works for them and it makes them feel good about using it.

    Wrong

    1. 3

      Neither is correct. The right answer is that some people care about the efficiency of the programs they use, and some people don’t. Additionally their reasons for caring or not caring, and which programs this decision applies to vary greatly.

      1. 1

        I care, hence the statement that ‘people don’t care’ is incorrect

        1. 1

          I think we’re in agreement on that point?

    1. 1

      Great!

      But I’d not expect a bonus or the company to be flexible with you with regards to things like working from home or days when you need childcare cover.

      1. 3

        I’ve done this at jobs where I’ve explicitly negotiated shorter workweeks. So definitely possible.

        In general I think it goes the other way around: if you set boundaries you are (usually) better respected. And you end up becoming more productive, too: https://codewithoutrules.com/2018/02/11/working-long-hours/

        1. 1

          Didn’t say you can’t set boundaries, saying if you aren’t going to be flexible with the company, I’d expect them not to be flexible with you.

      1. 4

        Is there a reason to consider this instead of something like 1Password or Bitwarden? I read the FAQ and it seems like it is the same except tied to Firefox.

        1. 6

          Dunno about their offerings, but what I personally like, about lockbox is that it’s got super friendly ux (caters for simplicity of use rather than us nerds :-)). I already use Firefox Sync on all my devices but the Android autofill API allows using it for apps too.

          Lockbox is also free of charge, free software and encrypts data on the client, not in the cloud.

          1. 4

            If I follow correctly, you are saying its encrypted at the client and then sync’d to the cloud. Correct?

            1. 4

              Yeah

          2. 0

            1Password or Bitwarden

            Those are proprietary, and I would assume the Lockbox thing isn’t?

            1Password is proprietary, bitwarden isn’t. oops.

            1. 10

              Bitwarden is open source:

              https://github.com/bitwarden

              1. 1

                […] Bitwarden

                Those are proprietary, […]

                Nope.

                1. 2

                  Well, ok, one of them is then.

                  1. 2

                    Have to say, my experience of Bitwarden has been nothing but positive. Much prefer to alternatives like lastpass
