I came to PH for vacation & ended up not wanting to leave after doing #charity work with #TrueManila. Now I help kids living in poverty & my wife & I are trying to adopt one - an 11 year old girl named Rian.
I like the concept of Delta Chat but:
- Many email hosts have a limit on emails sent per hour that could easily be hit by instant messaging.
- Messages are sometimes received out of order.
- Messages are sometimes very delayed.
- Notifications, at least on iOS, could take 30+ minutes to receive.
- Setting up multiple devices isn't very straight forward for the non-tech crowd.
Today I've gone from 57 feeds to 98. Yay more stuff to read that isn't depressing!
I just removed all local/world news sites and COVID update feeds from my feed reader. Time to reduce stress.
My feed reader is staying on 0 unread for too long though. Need more stress-free content.
I've thought about adding more Reddit feeds, but I'm not sure if that experience would be any better than opening a Reddit app.
I've been using Miniflux for a few days after getting tired of the dated look of TTRSS. It's not really everything I want, but its simple interface is so readable that I don't really want to go back to TTRSS or FreshRSS just yet.
I feel like it would be terrible for YouTube subscriptions, with the primary page being an "unread" list of all your feeds. I'm currently using Invidious for YouTube subscriptions though. Are any of you using Miniflux for YouTube? What's your work flow like?
My connection is currently 200Kbps. Yes, Kbps. Relying heavily on my personal VPS - mosh, browsh, w3m, etc.
I also need to access servers over SSH that don't have mosh, so I'm connecting to my personal server with mosh and then SSHing into the other servers from there.
Increased Firefox cache size :)
Today has been one of those days...
First PayPal locks me out of my business account because it wants me to add a phone number and won’t accept my only US number (Google Voice).
Then I log into my business bank account and find out they’re going out of business.
Now I have to find another VOIP service that can receive short code SMS and a business bank account that I can sign up for online, because I won’t be able to return to the US any time soon.
