    I don't want to try to influence your decision, but Please avoid GoDaddy, even if you intend to keep the domain only for redirection purposes. They have the most predatory pricing of any registrar...

    I don't want to try to influence your decision, but

    1. Please avoid GoDaddy, even if you intend to keep the domain only for redirection purposes. They have the most predatory pricing of any registrar I've used. For pricing reasons, I prefer Porkbun or Dynadot over Namecheap. You can compare prices at https://tldes.com.

    2. I'm curious if you considered any other (possibly less expensive) extension instead of relying on a subdomain.

    3. Yes, but after hearing stories about random email accounts being banned by Google, I believe it is more than necessary to have your own domain and email setup, even if you do not use it for a blog/website.

    True. That's why I extend the registration period for each domain in use to the maximum (10 years for most extensions). It's not foolproof, but I've added a yearly recurring reminder to renew them.

    Turn on subtitles and enjoy. Edit: If you liked Baahubali, I think you'll enjoy this as well.

    +1 for PurelyMail. I don't need to send a lot of emails so, it's very cheap (if you opt for advanced pricing) and just works.

    I did finish S01 of Da Vinci's Demons. Maybe I'll finish the show now that you've reminded me.

    I used to collect banknotes, coins and stamps. For now, I'm trying to build a good library, so I'm collecting hardcovers.

    I used to practise Intermittent Fasting and run 5K. But I haven't been able to keep up in recent months. I'm hoping to return to it soon.

    There's also https://glass.photo/ which is somewhere between Instagram and Flickr (leaning towards Flickr). It is subscription based ($29.99/year). I love the idea but I'm not a photographer....

    Paragon Pioneers. It's a city-building idle game. If you like factorio/mindustry, you'll enjoy this. They also have a demo version that you can test before purchasing.
