Would you pay $50 per GB for internet access on vacation? That probably depends on how far away from home you wish to travel. Compared to the $11.250 for toilet usage per day, it actually sounds like a bargain. So here is the price list for your next vacation in orbit:

Yalp store is "broken" for some days now. It cannot find apps anymore. Enter "firefox" and it finds nothing.
As a workaround, go to playstore in a browser, search there, and then copy the package name ( after id=) from the URL of the app. For firefox that would be "org.mozilla.firefox". Put that into the Yalp search, and Yalp will 'find' firefox.
Remember when one of the biggest muder mysteries was Culombos first name? Through modern forensics including HDTV and digital recording, this now solved.

I think the /e/ project is a big mistake. /e/ is based on Lineageos. They could have made a package which you flash over a Lineage. Then they would only need to supply one .zip for 15.1, one for 16.1, etc.

/e/ will only be available for a few devices.

I'm just watching a 1975 Columbo episode 'Troubled Waters', where Colzmbo solvea a murder case during a ship cruise. The captain is Patrick Macnee (John Steed, Avengers), the killer is Robert Vaughn (Napoleon Solo, U.N.C.L.E). Have you ever seen an episode with even more top guest stars?
I don't mean crossovers like Matlock showing up in Diagnosis Murder, or Gibbs with his team in NCIS LA. Really big stars from one series doing someone completely else in another series.
Did you know that most reports on the Austrian village "Fucking" are censored or blocked. There is even a beer named after this village. It is a light or pale beer, as opposed to dark beer. The German word for this is 'hell' :)
