TFW you burn a damn good identity because you forgot the seed to a key for all the passwords.

@oct2pus I don't know if this would be any more appropriate than showing up at Starbucks with a full iMac.

I could see it being useful in a professional environment for industrial designers / engineers who heavily make use of CAD, and are either on-site with equipment or frequently engage with clients during the design.
