    Password Managers: Bitwarden vs Google Password Manager

    LastPass premium user here. No complain, the yearly fee seems fair to me. But if I ever consider switching then Bitwarden would definitely be high on my list.

    Hi-Fi headphones and DAC/Soundcard for £200?

    I am using Aune X1S as my DAC/AMP for two years, so far so good. I used it to power my Fostex T-X0 and Sennheiser HD6xx headphones. I think the latest version of Aune X1S is currently available on drop.com.

    Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4 3200 @ NewEgg $189.99

    Yea, it was from yesterday's NewEgg Thursday ads so maybe it was a 1 day deal. I bought a pair myself to add more RAM into my vSphere ESXI server. $210 is still not that bad consider it's 64GB but I think there might be few other options in that price range.

    ESXi Network Setup Steps

    You will need to add two additional "Virtual Switch". For each "Virtual Switch", assign an "Uplink" to it. Each uplink is pointed to a GB ethernet port. After you created the "Virtual Switch" then you will need to add port group to your virtual switch. Good luck

    Tabs vs spaces

    I think this post deserves a poll. My opinion toward spaces versus tab is a personal preference. However if it is a coding standard mandated whether it is spaces or tab by the company then I am fine with that as well. I personally prefer spaces over tab but that is just me. Regarding with...
