Dark prediction: As ad-blocking becomes more and more prevalent, YouTube will figure out a way to give creators an "unskippable sponsored segment" feature.

And they'll get a cut for the service, because sponsors will pay more for guaranteed views.

I'm not joking.

Sigh. Why do people keep doing this? Just drop the platform altogether.

This does concern me, though, for sites like Nitter, Invidious, and others that remove the privacy-invading tactics of the sites they target.

Remember when it was cool that your spare compute power could be used to look for aliens or cure cancer instead of creating digital money?

My missus was looking for the old Ipod. It's here in the apartment somewhere, and I'm glad it is lost.

I disliked the thing anyways. It was difficult to get music on, but have to admit the form factor was nice.

I found that using the metal case plate from my retired PC tower works well as a ground plane for the magnetic mount antenna. That, and borrowing the cat stand for a little height.

Found a repeater with the software defined radio. It worked a lot better plugged in the laptop and not remotely to Pi.

I picked up one guy from 30 miles away. Just listening, I don't have a means to transmit.

Listened for a while yesterday to people checking into a net. It is interesting just to hear the local chatter.
