I once read a talk transcript (IIRC) where the speaker asserted that the main driver for breaking game consoles’ DRM was to run Linux. For evidence, they pointed to the PS3’s very long streak of unbroken DRM compared to competing consoles, a streak that only ended when Sony pushed the update that disabled Linux booting.

@simon regarding youtube: export your subscriptions to an .opml file, then import that into your favourite RSS reader. Use mpv + youtube-dl to watch the videos. This will get rid of the ads, works better, and doesn't expose you to their algorithm

Showed this to my roommate and we compared our alignment. Neither of us are chaotic evil.

However

He did say he would dog ear a couple pages of textbooks he didn't like as a "fuck you" to the class and professor. I said that was the nerdiest thing I'd ever fucking heard 🤣

today i finished writing my rss feed generator in nim for my wiki. its kinda cool to see that rss still feels valuable and relevant after all these years... also it was really easy to write in #nim !

i was explaining rss to a friend, and he was like, it sounds like you're just trying to re-create social media. i thought it was funny, because before centralized platforms like fb etc, things like rss and personal websites *were* the social parts of the web
