- noam chomsky is their second cheapest tool

how2 avoid youtube 

1. Youtube provides RSS feeds. They're very useful.
They are in the form of https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=<channel ID>

2. mpv - and probably others - can open Youtube URLs directly.

3. On Android, there's a piece of software called NewPipe that parses YouTube webpages - and RSS feeds - to provide a more pleasant interface.

3. There's a Firefox addon that redirects Youtube pages to Invidious automatically.

4. If you combine these, you can avoid ever opening the site. I have a script[1] that decides whether to open mpv or a web browser when I click an entry in QuiteRSS for stuff I care about.

5. You can feed youtube-dl a channel or playlist URL and it will download the lot.

Bonus: not using the website will probably result in you wasting less time as you're not subject to their psychological warfare.

@grainloom WebKit Embedded engine has a relatively simple build in contrast. If only one could write some usable chrome around it... ;)

dang. the Guix expression for building IceCat is just.... huge.
what even are browsers.
(or i guess what _aren't_ they. besides good or small.)

I'm to the point where I'm able to look in the mirror and think "dang I'm hot" most times now, and that's pretty neat

At this point, I no longer feel it is merely morally permissible to violate copyright, but rather one’s *moral duty* to subvert the vast majority of copyright. “Intellectual property” is a thoroughly disgusting Orwellianism.

We have entered a period where a samizdat underground is necessary to sustain the basic facets of civilization. And public education is a central pillar of the commonweal.

#Torrent every goddam thing.

@alcinnz The copyright cabal going after Internet Archive. Despicable. Absolutely shameful. Libraries should be temples, whether online or off. They should be the centrepiece and pride of our species. Their doors should swing wide open for all comers, both writers and readers. Any society which undercuts the Library has lost the aegis of Heaven.

I just expanded some on descriptions of available CSS properties in Rhapsode, and updated the docs hosted at rhapsode.adrian.geek.nz/ with new audio recordings!

Though there's details I didn't copy over...

All browsers should have a JS on/off switch next to the address bar, not somewhere hidden deep in the security settings.
Now I keep a preferences tab open to switch between 'standard' and safest in Tor.

$ rm dot-config/
rm: cannot remove 'dot-config/': Is a directory

$ rmdir dot-config/
rmdir: failed to remove 'dot-config/': Not a directory

In reality it's a simlink, but ok

Quarantine Fatigue • Excellent article about promoting risk reduction rather than an unrealistic goal of risk elimination. Explicit parallel to AIDS education theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/

I feel like I am quoting Maciej Cegłowski's "The Website Obesity Crisis" every other week at this point, but it's such a super-condensed source of white-hot truth and insight that I don't feel bad:

"Let’s commit to the idea that as computers get faster, and as networks get faster, the web should also get faster."

This is the most obvious and natural idea in the world, but somehow it's a genuinely radical position. I think the battle is lost on the web, but if you start again and only put in what you need you just arrive by default at a situation of what feels like breakneck speed.

Android has netcat, can pipe files like other unix-like systems: toybox nc -lp 8080 </sdcard/file.txt
Laptop on same network reads it with: nc $yourphoneip 8080
Same for reverse transfers.

“I’ll write this web app in Rust, so it’ll be light and fast so it’ll run well on my Pi!”

Did not take into account that I would have to compile the program on the Pi as well…

gender shit ~ 

had another impostor syndrome spasm of "what the fuck am I doing calling myself genderqueer I'm obviously just a cis woman faking it and I'm gonna regret this life phase in 10 years" instantly followed by "wow it felt viscerally wrong and uncomfortable to think 'I am a woman' uugghhhhhh"

Copyright must be abolished. The fact that anything created today will never enter the public domain within any of our livetimes proves that the system has failed. We have an obligation to exercise civil disobedience to protest the broken system. I will shed no tears for billionares caught up in the flack. They never shed a tear for the tens of thousands of people they screwed with expensive lawsuits, nor the billions they screwed out of their rightful inheritance of the collective works of humanity.

It's your obligation as a good citizen to pirate shit.
