    I wonder what triggered this, must have been a nudge from the authorities somewhere.

    Do Amazon and Google count as authorities?

    Vimeo is clunky and has a pretty poor user experience, I don't see it competing for much market share with youtube.

    Vimeo has better codecs and quality and is damn easy to upload to regardless of the device you're using.

    If by "user experience" you mean it lacks retarded yt codecs, yes, you're quite right, it's severely lacking there.

    Because people chase ad revenue and their interest is not actually sending a message or making a difference but getting views and likes and whatevs. Well, most of them, anyway. I'm not blaming them but yt is really awful lately as a platform.

    What YT ads? Not seen a single one since I got YT Premium to use their music service.

    I know, it stops all the video ads in play lists for devices that doesn't have the ad-block option. But all of that is just a bonus that came with being able to request any song under the sun on the Google Home.

    Fair enough, I was just sassing. But it's beyond me why people go to youtube without some kind of adblocker. It's basically unusable if you do. It's not even as if you can accept viewing an amount of ads in order to watch/listen to a given piece, it has to have that bullshit every 3-4 minutes as well.

    I assume at some point they'll block people from using it if they have an adblocker active. Come to think of it, I'm kind of surprised they haven't already.

    EDIT: wtf lol, I didn't realise it was as insane as this:


    Block ads on:

    youtube.com
    Number of items blocked
    127 on this page

    Well they do want people to subscribe hence they did go all out nuts 6+ months ago with ads at the start of every video of interest. They also stopped it so you can't leave a playlist going in your browser in the background. You now need to click continue after a short while.

    Intel dropped some microcode updates for MDS mitigations. Check if your board is updated.

    edit: Looks like it addressed MD_CLEAR.

    No point sending a message if nobody is there to receive it. Even people with existing audiences can't get traction on alternative platforms.

    I'm a big hypocrite in this regard. I subscribe to almost 100 YouTube channels but I wouldn't bother going after 95% of the content if I had to put an iota of additional effort tracking it down on different sites.

    You've heard of lolcats, but were you ready for NetCAT?

    Yes, yet another Intel security flaw.

    Buy AMD.

    "Someone who has literally plugged a cable into your RDMA interface and is watching the packets float past" doesn't exactly rank as a vulnerability worth giving a shit about.
