IMHO, a low-privileged user would need to have root-access to create an account with such an unusual UID.
As he has already root-access to create such a user-account, don't see this an an real-live issue.
Or have one created for them in a distributed/containerized environment. Very possible.

Re: Full disk encryption

Our office had an edict come down that everything needed full-disk encryption, so I had to switch distros on a couple of my machines. Let me know if you need someone to test the installer when y'all add this, though. :)

Re: Interesting free apps for Android devices (all from the "F-Droid" non-store)

I am using a bunch of stuff from F-Droid: - AAT to track my bike rides - I was a huge fan of K-9 Mail until I finally gave up and switched to Outlook over IMAP for work email. - SAnd for a dumb compass - DNS66 for non-root ad-blocking - Termux for a shell - And Bible for an offline Bible - Lightning...

Re: Logitech MX Ergo wireless trackball mouse (yes, MX is the real name ;) )

I have an m570 on my desk here in the office. I haven't done anything with the extra buttons... hmm. :)

At home, I have a pair of wired USB Logitech trackballs, one of which is white and dates to 1999/2000 and came with a PS/2 adapter. Still going strong!

Re: The end of spinning rust...

If you guys call 1.5 TB ancient.. I wonder what my 500 gb drive is.. antique? :laugh: The 1.5TB drives I put in my first NAS and then my second were purchased in 2009. It was an oddball size that they don't make anymore. Funny thing is, they're half-full and I'll replace them with something much la...

Re: The end of spinning rust...

I actually have to buy some spinners for my NAS, the ancient 1.5TB drives I built its predecessor with are finally throwing SMART warnings. Since I can't find a 1.5TB drive, I guess I am stuck buying a pair of 4TB drives and rebuilding the RAID again.

Re: ARM testing and debugger data for pinxi please!

Will this run in Raspbian, or are there MX/AntiX images for the Pi I haven't heard of yet? I can go try it on my Pi 3B tonight.
