hello guys, so I initially created a monero wallet and have xmr currently stashed in there, through whonix. it is near impossible to run the gui through whonix as it is entirely too slow. I downloaded the monero gui on my host os (ubuntu) and when I go to set up my wallet, I use the same seed and everything and after it all syncs up, things are good. the sync using the remote node even takes quite a while on ubuntu as well. the problem is, for some reason it does not save and everytime I go to use the GUI on ubuntu, I have to re-enter my seed and re-create the password and wait for the whole sync process all over again; why in the world does it reset everytime I open up the gui???

Hi guys, so I officially set up my Monero hardware wallet today and am using the moneroworld node. I'm just wondering, do I have to wait for that long thing to sync up everytime I open the wallet or am I just missing something here....
so when I'm browsing the offers on LBC signed out, there are some decent deals but then when I sign in to purchase, they are suddenly gone?! what is the deal with that??? the only deals available when I sign in are insanely high. I just don't understand, hope yall can offer insight. thank you
alright guys, I'm a info sec beginner so please bear with me.... so I just purchased a new laptop and a buddy of mine does information security for a living and I had him help set it up, configure/optimize it and make it as secure as possible, to his standards at least. I don't quite know what he did, but everything is completely set up now. the host OS is ubuntu, connected to a vpn, and using whonix via virtual box. the issue is, he freaking forgot to encrypt the disk when installing ubuntu!!! after doing some reading, that is the only time you are able to encrypt the disk, is upon installation.... soooooo I can't really wipe it and start from scratch since I don't quite know what he did security wise, but is this really that big of an issue, having my disk unencrypted? are there any alternatives? what do you guys recommend? thanks alot
