And before anyone bemoans the whole Cloudflare thing:

"But this doesn’t mean you have to use Cloudflare. Users can configure Firefox to use whichever DoH-supporting recursive resolver they want. As more offerings crop up, we plan to make it easy to discover and switch to them."

Internet friends, I made a thing!

github.com/mister-monster/YouT

It is a tool that watches YT channels and mirrors videos to PeerTube as they are released. I am personally very proud of it and I would love feedback. This is a tool that has been much needed and there are several open issues on the PeerTube Github asking about this functionality. It would probably be messy to implement that in the PeerTube server so I made a bot to do it for you.

I will be adding to it, but it works fine right now!

You can take clicks away from twitter when posting links from twitter here, just replace twitter.com part of link with nitter.net, lets not feed the beast if we don't have to.

So startpage is now owned by an advertising company.

Being a former startpage user I'm now considering changing to jivesearch (its on PTio) however I currently can't connect, tell me if you have the same issues.

Anyway I will try to keep you posted on this (sorry I'm 2 days late).

Ofcourse Activision-Blizzard banned pro Hong-Kong player on tournament since whatever they do they do to please Chinese market (remember Diablo immortal?), but why ban casters too? What did they do to deserve that? New south park episode really speaks for all this.

Adobe is deactiving all accounts in #venezuela and don't offer any refund !

That's why I'm happy to have #opensource software like Gimp, Inkscape, libreoffice, etc...

At least , there will never be a thing like this !

Sucks that anaconda isn't available for 32 bit architectures (such is raspberry pi), luckily I need few packages from it and they are available through pip3
