Android vs. iOS - Which spies on you more? Hopefully, this will help people understand why I hate Google so damn much. Get out while you can because it's only going to get worse. You need an application or service alternative? Ask an actual user. Heaven forbid if you have to learn how to use a thumb drive. I knows it's hard, but it does fit in the slot eventually and they are cheaper now than they have ever been. I'll rock a floppy if I have too.

NEOchrome (Atari ST) versus Krita. You can also find this image on my and make sure to click the follow button on my if you find this sort of stuff cool because these are the kind of things I like to do. I also plan on having alternatives for chat instead of making people signup such as using IRC, which will probably be OFTC. And, I figured out a way to have both chat displayed on screen so everyone can still talk to each other if they are watching.

Found another way to de-Google your life; document collaboration with AbiWord.

Look how far we have come... DPaint I (1985) on versus . You can find more of my stuff on at I sometimes stream this stuff on too.

If anyone is interested, I started putting , , , sounding on and I'm thinking about streaming how to easily do it with LMMS on really soon. I'm still figuring out how to come up with stuff but stay unique at the same time.

A year ago, I made a themed video with holiday music, a fireplace, and some essential commands in alphabetical order that go on for about 20 minutes.

I thought adding "Digital Rights" & "Philosophy" to trunk bot would be a good idea because I'm a user, so duh. But unless you're an early 90s, beret wearing witch-doctor that's late for your furry meeting and want to blame the "ist" and "isms" of the world for your anxiety that you're too introverted to actually be a part of beyond the comfort of your phone, I don't recommend it. These 20 year old ethics majors have absolutely nothing profound to offer and are just angry all the time.

If you are getting messages like these when trying to play YouTube videos with MPV or VLC:

"Unable to extract Initial JS player signature function name;"

People need to stop labeling their videos as "." They have completely cut us conscious people off from listening to new content outside of a web browser or Google owned app and fuck that API-key tracking bullshit.

You can play my streams without visiting using:




However, make sure that you have youtube-dl installed. If you are a Pi user, I stream at 720p, so it shouldn't be a problem. If it is, try:

mpv --vo=x11 --ao=alsa --ytdl-format="best[ext=mp4][height<=?720]"

You can also use --vo=drm,tct,caca if in TTY/console at runlevel 3 or 5 to watch my streams and then have another device use IRC to chat.

Still needs testing, but I came up with a script that will allow me to display chat of two IRC sources. This means that you no longer have to worry about signing up for to interact with my chat; although, Twitch technically uses IRC for chat. All you have to do is pay attention to what's being displayed in my stream and pretend as though everyone is in the same room. So, if you're still curious about my streams but would rather use something more like OFTC (still looking), you can.

Dear publishers who are also fans, when uploading music content to YouTube, please do not label the video as "music." Google is actively blocking youtube-dl supported applications such as VLC and MPV from playing music. This is why even unpopular music throws errors, yet "Irish people eat blah blah blah" (complete nonsense ) with 1 million views plays just fine. It's also why older uploaded music plays just fine. It has nothing to do with not showing ads or user-agents, but the JS.

@Gargron And now it works since I mentioned it -_-. This is weird...

@Gargron If you are bored, how about looking into why Mastodon is slowly but surely breaking for Tor Browser users? Because... you know searching for and getting nothing can't be true. I also sometimes get 500 error warnings when uploading images.

If this continues, it won't be long before we will have to signup on Flatpak or Snap stores to install and use Linux programs. And then you have the web developers trying to solve our cross-platform problem (as in operation system), as opposed to cross-distro (Flatpak and Snap), by trying to get us all to do everything in a web browser like it's the new Emacs or Vim for neophyte freaks. Who in there right mind wants to run a web service versus a simple GTK desktop program? Control much?

In other words, it looks as though Flatpaks and Snaps are just like running a separate Linux on top of the already existing one. And if these sandboxed installs still have access to each other anyway, and if hypothetically a Linux distro could be made entirely from Flatpaks or Snaps, then there really is not much of a difference in just using traditional repos except now we've given package control to 3rd party entities instead of the people qualified to build the distro you're doing these on.

Oh look, another reason to hate and snaps... Installing MyPaint via flatpak ( only because 2.10 from Debian's testing repo removes it as a standalone) costs about 1GB of space (GNOME dependency hell) where as just being happy with GIMP 2.8 loaded with plugins and MyPaint via traditional repositories, costs only about 100MB total with MyPaint taking up only 10MB of that space. You newer developers and sandbox-pushers are just going to have to get over your bullshit.

So far, the biggest problem getting people from using Windows to using is that there are a million different distros and 500+ solutions to every problem you can encounter. It's overwhelming. It then becomes an "evil I know vs the one I don't." But what the hardest obstacle for me is explaining that EVERY combination of distro versus solution is about 80% valid as long as you are willing to use your head, where as Microsoft would rather you use your wallet and be too scared to leave.

@JigmeDatse Thank you for the Twitch follow, assuming this is the same person. If you have any streaming suggestions that are FOSS, FLOS, or DOS on GNU/Linux, let me know.

By the way, I lurked a little on your profile. I have never heard of Twine before and I have a habit of seeing things a little outside the box, putting the "Outer" in TheOuterLinux, and thought that would make a great slide show editor and only have a web browser as the dependency. FOSS v. of Prezi. Do you know about Ren'Py?
