What’s a fair way to share fees in a group road trip with a personal and a rental car?

I’m planning vacations with a group of friends (12 people), and it involves a ~1200km return trip by car. Only one of us owns a suitable car (4 pax), so we’ve rented a minivan to transport the other 8, and we’re debating on how best to share the costs.

Normally, if none of the cars were rentals, each car owner would just divide the price of fuel and tolls over their passengers, themselves included.

Logically, we could do the same with the rental fees. But as a passenger who could either be in the personal car or in the rented minivan, their share of the cost will be vastly different depending on which car they end up in, for the same trip. That would be unfair to the passengers of the rental car.

We could also share the sum of all fees of both cars across all of us. But that would be unfair to the car owner, who ends up paying a higher trip cost than if it were just his car and passengers sharing the cost, despite owning a car and enduring the associated hassles and yearly expenses.

If we calculate it that way, we need to include the full, actual cost to him of using his car for the trip, including maintenance, amortization, and insurance.

What would be the best way to share these costs?

[ Politics ] Open Question : Why did a white liberal get upset when I as Black man asked them when will they give me a personal check as reparation payment?

I’m am a black man. Your belief is not required. Because I see in the mirror every morning. This is why I considered liberals more racist than conservatives. just because I questioned the system they automatically assume I’m white.

applications – Fitness health/apps: Export personal data from phone (i.e Dafit)

Many apps used by smartbands/watches have no option to export your personal data, so you can’t process/visualize, store, or migrate to other app.

Also I know that some fitness apps for android apps allow the data export to external files as excel, such as Withings healthmate can sync data with its “cloud/server” and from their webpage you can export data to excel.

For Dafit and other fitness apps with export/import :

Do you know apps/options/methods to extract its data?

Do you know apps to process/convert data from different apps ?

safari – App for macOS to add words to personal vocabulary list?

I search for a way to add unknown words in a personal dictionary or vocabulary list only by right-clicking the word and choosing the add option (in macOS). It would be very helpful for me to add the words directly to a vocabulary list, without breaking my workflow. I already found an addon for chrome which resolves my problem (you can see it on the attached screenshot). But I need a similar (overarching) solution that works with various apps (like PDF reader (Preview in macOS), other web browsers (safari)..). If there isn’t any app for this “issue”, would it be difficult for somebody without specific Swift (or macOS development) knowledge but expertise in other languages to write a small (background) APP in swift for helping me out?enter image description here

❓ASK – Do You Use Your Personal Computer for Bitcoin Mining? | NewProxyLists

What do you mean by “safe”?
You can’t get hacked while mining. But sure, if you don’t take breaks, you can damage your PC, the risk is low, but nevertheless, it can happen. And no, as I already wrote TWICE before, it is not worth it. Mining is done in big farms in china for Bitcoin, nearly noone is mining at home, it’s absolutly not worth it.

privacy – Personal computer + employer’s WiFi

Well, using some dedicated VPN service like NordVPN, or like you said, Tor, should really be enough. That is, unless your employer or co-employees are really nosy or you don’t work while you’re supposed to. Other things, such as built-in apps, usually remain confined to local storage unless you decide to sync them. Even so, unless you decide to sync to reminders, memos to your non-work Apple ID, not much can me done. And as for preventing them from accessing data stored on your personal account, just make sure you have a strong password.

TL;DR Nothing much to worry.

google play store – can I use my users personal contacts to promote my Android App by message?

I have developed an Android App. If an user installs my App then 50% of people in his contact list will also my app( Its an community based App) so I am planing to access my users contact list(by taking permission) and send all the contacts message to install my app.

I have also tried to read policies but they says you can use these data to improve app.

Thanks in Advance

python – Scrape every Java themed codingbat problem set and your personal solutions

I made the switch from JavaScript to Python lately. This is my first Python project and my first web-scraper. Do I have good practices? And could this be optimized?
