I find it absurd when people accuse #SciHub of "stealing" from journal publishers. It is the publishers who are stealing, from the scholars who write, peer review and edit the journals without pay, from universities and their libraries who have to pay to so their researchers can publish papers *and* to get access to them, and from the public who fund all this, through public funding, tuition fees and so on.
Don't feel bad or ashamed if you spend your week-end sleeping, resting.
It's *it's purpose*.
And in itself, resting is **not** doing nothing.
It's taking care of yourself, and allowing to gather back some energy. Some time to yourself.
Resting *is* doing something, for you. And it's a good thing to do sometimes.

@syndikalista That's a good one.
In the end, one of them suggested to establish a weekly round table on techno-ethical topics, as everybody agreed that *nothing* was clear about current technical trends. They exchanged mail addresses and want to continue the discussion right away next week.
This was not what I had expected!

Evince, Okular, and highlighting / annotating PDF
@dbs I tried both, Evince and Okular, for a while. Okular was quite nice, but always hung up when saving back an annotated PDF. Then I found https://code-industry.net/masterpdfeditor/ which is right now my tool of choice. Regarding #Linux it says the following on the homepage:
> The unregistered version can be used only in personal, noncommercial purposes to view documents, fill PDF forms, comment and print documents.
Works also great with zotfile for #Zotero.
@RameyMoore Good you came here, this is a nice instance to be on.

While following the screenshots on the homepage and explaining the value of the tool I wished for a screenshot that better expresses the aggregated view of marked passages in the text. And I realized that Taguette helps a lot to explain qualitative research from a tool's perspective, not just from theory.
