Would be cool if Google search indexed public discord servers.

Makes me miss a time where they couldn’t tell if ads were actually watched or not.

Sooner or later, ad blockers should just simulate the ad being played (in the background) with the real content going in the foreground to act as if the ad was watched.

Kind of like going to the bathroom during commercials.

Then again I wish we had a real alternative to YouTube. (Don’t point me to the fediverse video stuff … that’s not what I mean.) There is no real competition for a place to freely upload videos … or on the other side find all that content. No one wants to scale enough to compete. (Very few probably could considering the amount of new content per minute).

If only there was real competition, then YouTube would have to fight over our attention/usage by lowering ad count.

No competition means worse for all.

The problem is the term quality would be used to block out certain creators. The definition would wind up being vague and/or arbitrary.

What one person thinks is quality may not be quality to someone else. In a way that’s a niceness of YouTube. We can each upload what we think is good… or bad.

Even then if a video goes big viral (which is arguably something a creator may want), the bandwidth costs could skyrocket.

Then it’s like: maybe we need CDNs and more storage and boom now it’s even more expensive. I just don’t see fediverse video working great long term without big money to back it.

I remember seeing a startup at one point that wanted to put mini-CDNs in people’s homes. Small black boxes that would automatically be a CDN not just for your home, but the whole area. Of course, sites would have to use their CDN network, etc.

I actually thought it was a really interesting idea. Almost like federated CDNs.

Imagine if every Xfinity router has a built-in 16TB CDN: it would be an interesting way to possibly change how bandwidth works and makes it back to the DCs. Most popular stuff would be closer, faster.

In their defense, advertisers weren’t seeing those same people.

Seems cool. Thiccc though.

Any ideas on price?

csm10495,

And to think I thought that staircases to places were where the money was.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but most people can lookup most other people’s addresses in the US for free (or cheaply) on websites like whitepages.com. Even without that, if someone is very determined, they can visit the record office for the area on get public info on you, which also likely includes address.

What’s the benefit of paying such a premium for an anonymous delivery if your address is likely already available?

The only thing I can think of is if buying something sketchy, but I’m genuinely curious here.

csm10495,
@csm10495@sh.itjust.works avatar

It’s public knowledge. If they want to know where you personally live, they could look it up via the ways I previously mentioned.

Heck, even if you never visit their sites, they could easily get big lists of names and addresses that may include you: all legally.

Any attempt at fighting that is likely not to be fruitful. It’s basically security by obscurity, you’re trying to complicate it via one way, but they can just go another (more obvious) way if they wanted.

Ah. Then just buy a gift card in cash from CVS, etc. Then use it on an alternative account and delivered to one of those pickup boxes.

Still sketch though lol.

Kind of funny that they sent an email with like 3 benefits of Google One being dropped but nothing added back.

They should drop Google One. It’s literally just storage afaict.

Between the backstage footage and the Osprey jabs, it kind of makes them come off as low rent.

Idk

Cool looking app. I wish it was available on Google Play for people not familiar with third party app downloads.

csm10495,
@csm10495@sh.itjust.works avatar

Understood. I just think it could spread and be enjoyed by lots more via that path. Of course, it’s all up to the devs.

How do I commit fraud then squat in a house?

The idea of a clean code base only existed for the original writers… most of the time.

I’ll be that guy here and start a small fire.

If it’s not OK for OpenAI to violate YT’s terms of service, then it’s not OK to use an alternative frontend or ad blocker that also violates ToS.

You should be for enforcing the ToS or against it. Allowing one version of breaking it without the other is fickle.

Some people think OpenAI should stop, but they should still have their ReVanced, which boggles my mind a bit.

And even if it was: it goes to his personal court costs.

I actually don’t care here lol. It scares me when it makes noise but I just play with my phone anyways.

I wouldn’t condone vandalism or anything like that here.

It took a while to get going, but eventually the story worked well to pull me in. I was hooked on the character development and the plot.

The world is so vivid and beautiful too. Lots of things to look for, hunt, explore, etc. I really liked it.

I also had my character grow a big mustache. My wife won’t let me do that so I lived vicariously through the game for that too.
