The inside of my pc is really full because the cables that connect the PSU to everything have extra connectors added onto the end, but I don't use these and they just take up loads of space behind the fan.
I've tried a little by pulling but there doesn't seem to be a way to get rid of the unused connectors without just cutting them off which I'd rather not do, is there something obvious I'm missing to disconnect them do you think? Should I just cut them off?

decent-quality optical media will last ten years. Chink shit stuff might or might not. Use something like parchive or dvdisaster to protect against bit rot though. Hard drives should easily retain data that long with no special consideration. Flash... eh, maybe.

But really if you're gonna store things that long you shouldn't leave them alone, you should regularly go back, test them, and if needed transfer them onto new media once every few years.

I'm not addressing that point. I'm saying IF strong malware gets a foothold on your system, you can't rely on replacing the drives to cleanse the system. And it's not the global players you have to worry about. They already have access to everything. It's the guys that get second hand access to their exploits that are the real issue.

yes, linux can use openzfs pools
current versions of ubuntu even ship with openzfs available (it's not in the mainline linux kernel, due to incompatible licenses)
the encryption might be a problem though, openzfs doesn't support encryption, only the proprietary oracle one does, which means your encryption is another layer, this will also need to be in a format linux can use. i'm not sure what block encryption options there are in freebsd

I think so. I googled around and some stack overflows use it. Apparently it's jQuery which should work as .js? Or maybe I'm wrong.

document.addEventListener('keydown', function(e) {
// pressed del
if (e.keyCode == 46 && !e.shiftKey && !e.ctrlKey && !e.altKey && !e.metaKey) {
document.getElementById('remove-message-button').dispatchEvent (evt); // this will trigger the click event
}
}, false);

})();


But pressing delete does nothing. How do I definitively find out what the Element ID of the remove button is? I have the inspector in my pic.

That's not an ID.
Right click on the element you've highlighted, then choose "copy selector" or "copy css selector" then use "document.getElementBySelector" with that selector instead.

.click() is vanilla JS and supported in all browsers, you're just "clicking" the wrong element.

I have Manjaro with i3wm and two monitors.
When I position my monitors properly and save the configuration it tells me to add some line to my autostart file for it to be like this whenever I start my machine. Anyone know which autostart file it means and where it is located?
