    I think if you don't collect the country people live in your data aren't going to tell you much about social class. $20k/year would probably put you in the 90th percentile in some countries.

    I think you'd get better value from a used laptop off ebay. T420 is getting quite old. Something like T450 or T460 should be less than £400, and most come with an SSD. The newer Intel CPUs run...

    I think you'd get better value from a used laptop off ebay. T420 is getting quite old. Something like T450 or T460 should be less than £400, and most come with an SSD. The newer Intel CPUs run much cooler too. Get a dock for it to easily hook up to a monitor and then you don't have the small screen problem either. Having said all that, I get that it's fun to build your own.

    It doesn't have to be this way. Have you thought of working somewhere else and/or switching to back-end dev?

    Some of the higher end inkjets claim to be even cheaper per page than laser printing. Definitely going well so far with ours, 2 years in and only had to buy one set of cartridges (and still half full). A full set of cartridges is about £100, but it beats paying almost £50 every few months with a budget printer.

    I had a go using Syncthing a few years ago. I got it working but it wasn't straightforward and some stuff refused to sync. Keep meaning to give it another go. I guess it's much better now?

    I have this phone too. 8.1 has been released to people on the test channel, so it shouldn't be too long now. What I'm not sure about is what is there to get excited about in 8.1 over 7.0? Project Treble looks like the most interesting part of it but that won't affect how I use the phone.
