    I was doing some research about this as well today, ended up on the wirecutter about budget android phones. It seems basically every Nokia and Motorola Moto are good choices. Of course this depends on your definition. Some consider a $700 phone a budget phone nowadays since often you pay $1000+. I'm thinking about a Google Pixel 3a. I want the native Android experience and fast updates.

    I also paid for years, one time I wanted to make use of a feature I was paying for: Exporting an archive of my bookmarks. This feature broke at some point and I couldn't download my bookmarks for over a year, got a response to my support request 14 months later :( In the meantime I did let my premium account expire.

    I still like the guy running pinboard and the service itself but I probably won't re-subscribe.

    I use a VPN on my mobile devices (iOS & macOS) with the on-demand setting turned on (wireguard is the software I use). So I'm always connected to a VPN except when on cellular and my home WiFi. This makes it super convenient since I don't have to think about it.

  5. Comment on People of Tildes, what apps and programs do you use regularly on your PC? in ~tech

    Yes it is, also there's a way lighter implementation available with bitwarden_rs which I've been running for months now and it works just fine and is actively being updated.

    Any key features? No, I guess it actually has less than 1password and probably LastPass but I don't know for sure. For me: free, self-hosted.

    I just need auto-fill in my browser, face id/touch id unlock on my phone, secure notes to store just random text and my logins. BitWarden checks all the boxes.

    Manual interaction only, no API or anything like that to automate it as far as I know, right?

    Yeah, I checked out Notion as well, but it's a super lock-in. They don't even provide a bulk-export or API.

    cool, thank you. This might work, it's not what I hoped it would be (the synced folder thing is super integrated like a local folder to iA Writer). I'll check this

    I need to share them back to nextcloud manually then, right? Or can nextcloud be integrated as an external library?

    There's just no app with an integration into OneDrive/Google Drive nor nextcloud. If they support sync it's either iCloud or Dropbox :( I think for now I'll use the build-in editor in Working Copy, not the best but it works, even with preview and full text search through the repo.

    That's basically my workflow right now! I assume you're using the Working Copy syncing feature with iA Writer together? Do you have some sort of automation for pulling data and doing commits? That's the one task I don't want to do manually all the time on my mobile.

    Awesome!! This would require little change on my current setup, I'll definitively look into entr and similar tools. Haven't thought about rclone as well, not sure if I need this since I'm already running a remote server with a git frontend. The gollum wiki mention sounds very promising, however. But maybe I can build something with rclone on the remote server or a webhook to get a better iOS experience. I think this is the biggest part. Not sure if I want to use vim on my iPhone like the hacker news guy.

    I've used syncthing in the past, good point! Second time now that emacs/org-mode is coming up in this conversation. Do you have recommendations how to get started? It seems emacs knowledge would come in handy before one goes with org-mode.

    Indigrid looks promising, Windows only for now, unfortunately :( Trillium checks most boxes, they don't have an app but apparently a mobile friendly theme. They also provide a docker image so the installation shouldn't be that hard, thank you so much!

    Wow, you've been through a lot of things there! org-mode comes always up, I should really give it a shot, especially since there's an iOS version available now with a sync backend. I guess it'll just take a lot of time to learn it since I'm also new to emacs.
