I woke multiple times during the night so am so tired this morning. Just give me a nudge if I fall asleep at my desk.

Nipped out last night to put some petrol in the car after finally getting a bit low after a few tip runs in the past few days. It's the first time I've had to do a fill-up since the new year. That's lockdown for you. Still, it's only two weeks until the governmentshould be ending the "stay at home" restrictions — as long as all the numbers are still heading in the right direction.

Just being able to get out properly, to take a drive to the moors, be surrounded by nature, will be so good for the soul.

Just because I'm an introvert with tendancies towards social anxiety it doesn't mean I enjoy being stuck at home. It may affect me less than others, and I may have no desire to get back to being among throngs of people, but it definitely still affects me. I need to get out into those wide open spaces, get a sense of scale and perspective and reconnect with Mother Earth.

@colinwalker that’s so tough! But hang in there. One day (soon I hope) all of this is going to feel like a very strange dream... hope you rest well tonight.

@herself Thanks. Just having the "stay at home" order lifted will enough to start with.

@colinwalker I've had the same thing happening to me, no matter how early I get to bed. As a result, I've had to deal with brain-fog during the day plus general sluggishness. I need to make an effort to get outside more often.

@wearsmanyhats indeed, the fog is real!

I've never really used a password manager but have decided it's about time — I'm trying Bitwarden, being free and cross platform, so have been populating my most frequently used accounts and changing some passwords as I go.

I was looking at the news that Dropbox will add a password manager for up to 50 passwords to their free tier and thought it was about time I started using one.

Having stripped back a lot of my online accounts I don't think I'd get anywhere near 50 but didn't want to go via Dropbox for this kind of thing. A bit of research seemed to indicate that Bitwarden was the best free option.

@colinwalker I would do some research one this and not cheap out because if you go with an app that don't take security serious it can cause major problems I would also recommend going for a manager that notifies you about breaches and lets you identify sites with 2fa that you don't have enabled it on

@colinwalker I've not been impressed by Dropbox software quality in a long time.

@hjertnes Same here, I haven’t used Dropbox in ages and don’t plan on changing that anytime soon. @colinwalker Not sure if you tried yet, but if cross platform is a requirement there’s KeepassXC. The Strongbox iOS app is excellent (I think it has Mac also) and K.P. has Windows.

@peterimoore Thanks for the suggestion. There's no official Android app for KeePass so I'm happy testing Bitwarden for now.
