Quite alright even though i am not good with heat. But a few more hours of working, then making dinner, all that normal human stuff.

Make your mental health a priority, if not, this will come back to you at some point and then it will have the possibility that it collapses everything.

If you decide on going back to school while working, make it so that you work towards something that will, after you graduate, instantly makes it possible for you to improve the rest of your life (better work, more money, better work / life balance etc). If that is not the case and you are merely interested in a degree / knowledge / something else, prioritize work and mental health before taking on extra pressure.

A movie that is certainly on my “have to watch” list!

Which RSS reader to use?
I am looking for a RSS reader to start using. The big names seem to all have subscription services and that is just too much for me. Are you using an RSS reader (or alternative) and if so, which one can't you live without?

I use the heart symbol all the time, as a symbol of love (to the ones that i really love) or as a symbol of appreciation for things that they have done, i don’t think anyone has ever mistaken it and to normalize spreading love to all my cis-gendered male friends. ❤️

Even when i take into account the subscription, the fact that it is owned by a company and thus centralized, i still go with 1Password. For the simple reason that it works on all my devices, has a dedicated application and browser plugins and through the years has just worked for me.

For me, at this moment, it is that part convenience to keep using it.

Yeah sorry, i misplaced the OP and you with your wants and needs, so interpreted your comment differently. But yeah getting a 1KB site is super hard! But it is a nice challenge.

That is already pretty minimal, but why the 1kb? As the website that is mentioned is 250kb max. That is quite the difference.

Use the most basic HTML elements, sections, paragraphs, headings. No need to go fancy.

If you want to keep it as simple as possible, just use HTML. I don’t even know what you can put in 1kb of HTML if you leave out all the head meta data. Have to try that out.

In a lot of cases that makes indeed sense, that if i create a personal wikipedia page and declare myself person awesome the awesomenest and emperor of the world that that will not fly. But academic writing rules can’t be fully translated to be talking about people, or groups, or particular things. It really depends on the topic which ruleset you can apply (and i guess Wikipedia is trying to do that).

Wondering, is there a roadmap available somewhere?

1password, the combination of usability on all devices, and a firefox plugin makes it the most usable one. It is a paid service though.

Alternative to Google Translate?
I guess we all know about Google Translate, my one stop shop to quickly translate a single word, or a short sentence, or maybe even a whole interview in a different language. Now to purge Google from my life, are there any alternatives? ----- Suggestions from the comments: - [Deepl](https://www.deepl.com/translator) - [Reverso](https://www.reverso.net/text_translation.aspx?lang=EN) - [Suckless Google Translate](https://translate.metalune.xyz/) ([github](https://codeberg.org/simple-web/google-translate))

It seems that there have been some updates in the past days to Plume.

It did! Disroot has a huge mission statement where it is all written out, so that can’t be more clear than that. (i’ll also add them to the original posting as options for people in the future).

The way you seems to use the word “activism” seems a bad sense I never knew. What do you mean?

It was in no way meant as a bad thing, sorry if it came over that way.

Both those organisations have been around for quite some time right? Having their roots in activism as far as i know.

If the article in question is something that needs sources that are scientific. What if you want to update a page about a band (for example) you are actually in, are you then not one of the valid sources? (I think @SnowCode@lemmy.ml is referring to this).

a topic kick haha.

I would add that better formatted notification emails could help at least with the readability.

I like the idea of using a custom domain and changing providers if needed. Going to take that into consideration.

So Protonmail / ProtonVPN is not a good option?
I'm trying to get rid of my Google dependency and one of those steps was moving over to Protonmail. Now in the past few days i have been picking up signals that even Protonmail is not as clean as it might be. Does this really impact the privacy of how i use email and so is moving to Protonmail a step forward from Google, or is Protonmail just as bad? If so, what could be alternatives? ------ edit: Some of the alternatives being mentioned in the comments are: Email: - [Tutanota](https://tutanota.com/) - [CTemplar](https://ctemplar.com/) - [Disroot](https://disroot.org/en/services/email) - [Riseup Email](https://riseup.net/en/email) VPN: - [Mullvad](https://mullvad.net/en/) - [Riseup VPN](https://riseup.net/en/vpn)
