    I also self-host FreshRSS but use Reeder (Mac) and Read You (Android) for consumption. For all the FreshRSS users out there, what extensions (if any) are you using?

    Seems quite involved but not beyond the capabilities of anyone familiar with self-hosting. The email stuff seems like the most difficult thing to sort out. I can see why many would just pay for Ghost to host their newsletter.

    I can't imagine her panic when Substack replied saying they couldn't disconnect her Stripe account from Substack without canceling all existing paid subscriptions. Really putting Substack's promises about writer control to the test.

    That's because YOLO already exists. And of course it's a cannabis ETF.

    I am reminded of Anthony Bourdain's comments about Kissinger from his book A Cook's Tour: Global Adventures in Extreme Cuisines:

    Once you've been to Cambodia, you'll never stop wanting to beat Henry Kissinger to death with your bare hands. You will never again be able to open a newspaper and read about that treacherous, prevaricating, murderous scumbag sitting down for a nice chat with Charlie Rose or attending some black-tie affair for a new glossy magazine without choking. Witness what Henry did in Cambodia - the fruits of his genius for statesmanship - and you will never understand why he's not sitting in the dock at The Hague next to Milošević. While Henry continues to nibble nori rolls and remaki at A-list parties, Cambodia, the neutral nation he secretly and illegally bombed, invaded, undermined, and then threw to the dogs, is still trying to raise itself up on its one remaining leg.

    It sounds like you might be fine sticking with Intuit as it transitions Mint into Credit Karma?

    It sounds like you might be fine sticking with Intuit as it transitions Mint into Credit Karma?

    Will there be a budgeting tool in Credit Karma?

    While the new experience in Credit Karma does not offer the ability to set monthly and category budgets, it offers a simplified way for you to build awareness of your spending, and track your savings so you can feel more confident you're on the right path towards financial progress.
