Recent @eimrine Activity
Let me divide all possible time spendings in categories:
1. Sports - all I have mentioned in edit but not limited to it. Somebody likes speed, somebody likes heighth, somebody likes heavylifting. Sometimes health issues limits what you can do. Sometimes skill matters. Or good company. Or geography, seazon, weather. Looking at weather forecast may be a big deal for newbie outdoor discoverer.
2. Travelling - chose your desired transport, point B, time, money, DRP and go!
3. Doing something with your hands - works best either at your own yard or when you are in group with experienced master. Examples: welding (but not soldering), gardening, building, crafting, digging.
4. Just relaxing - cafes, open-airs, festivals, artwatching, birdwatching, trainwatching, laying on the beach, taking part in a barbeque party. Definitely more that I can count, just only a music festival of different genre may be so different from other genres.
5. Degrading - doing criminal activities, making stupid videos for yt/tt, watching that videos. Also boozing.
6. Hunting for sex - no comments.
7. Real hunting (not only shooting) or at least fishing.
8. Meditating (for advanced outdoor masters) - try spending as much time as possible (8-12 hours is a good start) without moving or bio feeling, or even thinking (especially without thinking). Works best if a long and exhausting way back home is needed afterwards. Does not work if any computer device is anywhere less than 1km near you. Needs a little square carpet of foldable chair for sitting (laying is not an option).
9 (bonus for programmers) Coding somewhere on open air, try this now because on the Northern semisphere these are the warmest days ever. Needs lots of spare batteries especially if Internet is needed.
What is the goal of the time spending, is it teambuilding for a group of people? Or maybe you are just bored of sitting in front of computer?
Edit: did not see "solo" word. How about sport activities? Running costs literally zero, some other sports like longboarding requires a little bit of gear. Hiking/bikepacking is another popular choice which costs absolutely nothing.
> we don't know how AI is doing it.
Don't you think doctors can do it?
Save your links is dead strategy. They fails to work very soon. The only thing that would make me close gazilions of my tabs is any working way to save the retrieved data, especially non-text ones.
Why not to connect an external USB mic to a desired smartphone?
Spaced repetition is a beast! I know it from my experience w/o software. I have some experience with Anki which is one of default apps on one of Linux distribs, but it did not worked for me because I do not start it daily :) and to be honest I do not know what info to load and to not load in Anki. For me paper seems to be more handy because it is simpler to write in it something, to read several times what has been written and to abandon what has been learned or obsoleted.
What is the cost of the whole setup?
Looking at a lathe for the same amount of hours is better? At least a screen can not shoot at worker with piece of metal or cut off some parts of worker's body if some negligence has been committed.
Annoying or scamming your own users in order to get funded. Too big relyness on marketologists in order to getting anyone use your app. Too big involedness of governments which citizens seems to be your users.
Handy? What if you miss your period notification among dozens of other push notifications?
No security in paper notebook? So why does this topic exist? No privacy? Tell me name of that paper notebook who sells your data?
Avaible not from home only? How many looks at this kind of data is required daily?
Ability to mark whenever? Why if precision of calendar of periods anyway is limited to days?
Track trendns and make predictions? This is an EXACT goal of using tracker, no matter paper or digital.
Can make historical data available? This is a pure lie, you are going to change several devices and versions of OS w/o ability to import that history (for example) from Android 4 to Android 14. Paper can serve you since your the first period ever upto the last one.
A paper notebook near my computer. Sometimes I do photos of it and store them in other building. Sometimes that notebook consists smart moves like how to find useful setting.
> What else are you looking for?
Imagine I have few kilograms of resistors, capacitors, transistors etc and I want to make an amplifier of sound frequencies. How to see on GitHub all 1-channel amps of class A, having 5-15W of output power, using no more items than I have or can buy in my town, and no SMD, and having a PCB layout for saving my time, and not having a power supply on that layout?
This is an example of my typical real goal and I can achieve this kind of goals in old fashioned way: using paper journals like "Radio" (a famous Soviet journal on electronics) or websites like vrtp.ru radiokot.ru (not an advertisement, those are real sources of schematics which I use in my hobby electronics projects) but this approach has a serious problem - these designs has been curated by "benevolent dictators", and I can not edit those for public even if I am sure there is some better ways to achieve same results. Also those resources might have minor problems like missing images from other websites which may be crucial for building this or that schematics.
Also your question has a second answer - I am not that big fun of electronics and those resources more than fullfill my beginner asks of making electronic devices but I have a hobby research project on VCS for general purposes so I am interested to see more of different approaches.
For me it is inability to load any other website in some of my old button phones which I love. The loading problem on my phones is about missetting https on most of websites (I can not read google, wikipedia, and 99% of internets on my Blackberry).

I would not want that service even if it doesn't send anything. What I want is advanced grammar and orphography check for those whose English is not a mother language. I haven't use Copilot but the helplessness of modern grammar checking tells me that this kind of software is yet to be a decent helper.
I am from Ukraine and since the war has begun some random outages happen almost every day and there is almost no way to fix those. So we learn to get a maximum from all services that keep working and pray every start of a day that an air alarm will not be yelling today.
I have seen an error message once, instead of content. I did not remember it but the wording was amazingly perfect. And there is one minor issue when "reply" button to a specific comment had not been loaded by the time the comment has rendered.

I am an owner of grocery shop and for me it is super easy to have a talk with my clients or to observe their behaviour. Somebody don't like our goods or service, somebody use to fall down before even entering because tiles on stairs become slippery on winters. Somebody use to steal something as expensive as possible without any real needness. Well, software business is different but find a way to get some talks with your clients and try to find a way to observe what they are actually doing (please look at people but not spyware trackers).
