Just saw an article about ad revenue and print media in Switzerland. In 2009 it was CHF 1’925’000’00 – and ten years later it was CHF 924’000’000. – and they say more or less this lost ad revenue now goes to Facebook and Google. From what I remember, in theory half the income of print was ads, so about one fourth of the former print media income goes to Facebook and Google. It is both scary because of the money being siphoned away and because of these dependency then and now. Gah!
chop youtube support
integrate peertube v3 search
just like extinction of some creatures threw ecosystems out of whack, so will the removal of youtube-dl. for those that think all they have to do is change host, what about code that have the uri hardcoded? what about the other applications referring to youtube-dl on github?
this is why centralized repositories is bad. why constructs do not last. why bsd have a sturdier package system. why static linking is better than dynamic linking.
so traumatic has been my experience with msft over 2 decades that i try to avoid being around a windows workstation for more than 2 hours. the only time i feel close to comfortable is during games of candy crush saga, ignoring all the attempts to syphon all that is mine through the sensors of the host.
