I would pay $1/month for book suggestions related to technical leadership.
I would pay $2/month for 10 suggestions of breweries I haven't tried yet.
EDIT: Some people asked what I mean by "important". For me, important event is the event that has potential to have a high impact on the society or any large group of people in long term. Some very recent news that I found important: results of elections in Austria, terrorist attack in Somalia, grand jury indictment against Manafort, hundreds of sexual harassment allegations in USA as a whole (I don't think reporting each individual case and celebrity implicated is important).

I also subscribe to https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday.com/ for US politics news.
I gave up on my desired configuration after spending 3-5+h in frustrated powerlessness.
I just couldn't make these specific items work together, at all.
That's how I always set things up and I never once wished for anything like gulp or webpack or whatever else is trendy these days.
I wish there was a way to drive cars without the need to be an auto mechanic.
You know, just a plain old script with all the build steps laid out sequentially:
feed this file to this command, pass these arguments, wait for command to finish, take output files and copy them over here .. etc.
I attempted to use it twice and here is what I don't like about it: They give you NO idea whatsoever of how many people are available through the service, what kind of expertise they have or if/when anyone even will be available. Worse than that is when you submit a request, they don't send you any status updates or anything until you get an email that says "It looks like no experts were available" ask you what time YOU are available instead of letting you know when a fucking expert will be on! They also give you zero clue as to what kind of prices you should expect. Is "$2 a minute" going to attract anyone? How about $3? I don't know!
In summary, I think Hackhands is probably one of the worse services that I've ever wasted my time trying to use.
2. CoffeeScript2 with support for modules, with uglifyer/minifier on build.
Both 1. and 2. as a part of a middlemanapp dev/build process, which means the JS process watches and builds a file tree, and the SCSS process does the same.
Even setting up ES6 had issues on build because some incompatibilities of the uglifyjs iirc.
EDIT: Added clarification.
Why can't I opt out of "or current resident"?
Since I did it my letter box is desperately empty except the occasional paper bill.
Won't work with junk mail that is directly addressed to you of course, but in my case it's not frequent, I'm probably not in many databases.
Edit: I assumed major tech companies and western world, the situation is obviously different in other regions.
That's to hire them for their work. I'm just trying to talk with them about their experience, not asking them to code/manage.
It seems to still be in business at clarity.fm, though it seems to be more aimed for startups than individuals.
Also, readers, the email is in his profile ... ;)
tl;dr; services like this exist, but 60-70$/mo is laughably low (assuming min 2-3 loads of washer + dryer per month)
Alternatively I have a few shirts made by high threat count Egyptian cotton and those are wrinkle free if you just put them in the bathroom while taking a shower and the let 'em dry. Pretty price, but honestly worth my time.
The hardline against even business casual dress by some people boggles the mind.
Ironing appropriate clothes will make you look substantially more put-together. Try it please.
Of course the problem here is "competent". On two different occasions people have offered to do the job and they were terrible.
I got a few ex-$15/hr customers, who wanted a few hours of my time purely to clean up the mess left by the last guy, and once it was cleaned up they'd take their business to the next $15/hr guy and hope he was a little better than the last one.
Bit of a tricky situation I suppose, on one hand the competent Sadmins are probably more inclined to stick to a normal job with a steady income, but the incompetent ones seem to be happy to sit around all day spamming freelancing sites.
Seriously - there are literally hundreds of affiliate management services out there, I've looked at dozens of them, and none of them quite fit the following requirements:
- Simple setup
- Reasonably low cost
- Dashboard for affiliates to track clicks & signups
Most existing systems also wrap up some sort of customer referral widgety thing, which I don't need. Or, the websites are broken / look like they're from 2001.
ReferralCandy is probably the closest thing, but again, it's way more set up for "customer referrals" vs professional or semi-pro affiliates. The integration process is also super heavy.
We literally built our own affiliate management since everything that fit our requirements was so expensive. This seems like an obvious side-project for someone to knock out.
(Here is where I'm hoping someone chimes in to say that already exists)
Apparently it's too much to ask.
However I sometimes get Google weather predictions on my (desktop) browser and find them less accurate than our local weather service (Météo France).
I would pay $20/month for someone to keep my clothing fresh.
Why not just use a dishwasher? If you wanted to break it down into a 'cost per night' then maybe rent the appliance or get it on interest free.
Assuming your dishwasher(s) can hold 3-4 days' worth of dishes, you can totally do that now. Hiring a housekeeper to come in twice a week to do dishes and laundry is probably in your price range.
My life doesn't support podcast-listening particularly well, and yet I know there's a lot of good info out there in the audio world.
Google Photos is shitty and Google already got too much information about me.
I don't use them and it's not from your Dropbox but heard great things about them in general.
I would pay $10 a month for scraping 100 data entries for my side project.
You might make a wise old friend out of it too :)
I will forward the link to a friend that was looking for something similar.
Not Linux but it's the best NAS you'll get.
Why don't you just uninstall everything from your phone but whatsapp and google maps?
Check out TMobile's 25$ a month just Text and Calling service that came out fairly recently.
I am looking for the same thing as you, but unfortunately have used a ton of software to replicate it.
I wish phone companies would go back to simple =(
If you don't like that Wimpy suggestion, I would pay $2000/year in union dues (or professional association of equivalently sized teeth).
The cool part to me is that the subscribers I do have almost never click the links; they tell me the summaries are all the info they need. So that feels like creating some value. Now, if I could just find more subscribers. :)
Not exactly a 'subscription', but you pay a small amount (~$0.30) for each article. It is in beta but I got accepted by the next day when I signed up a few months ago.
