YouTube is finally cracking down on third-party apps that enable ad-blocking (alternativeto.net)

The company’s team clarified that their terms prohibit third-party apps from disabling ads, as it denies creators their due reward for viewership. Although the announcement did not specify any app by name, it’s plausible to presume that third-party YouTube apps such as NewPipe, YouTube ReVanced, Piped, and others might be...

Did you De-qualcomm it too, or not affected?

Recently bought a g84 - it has SD card or Dual Sim capability, along with a headphone jack and stereo speakers. For a $AU350 device it's pretty good - only thing I miss is a telephoto lens.

My dog and cat love a good Bachelor's Handbag every few days. I'd happily have those pretty regularly, although they don't seem to keep you full for long.

Aussie slang for a hot Barbecue Chicken from a supermarket - typically sold in a plastic carrier bag. Classed as the Bachelor's handbag as it is not uncommon for a single guy to buy one as a meal.

Came to /kbin first, and still here sometimes but Voyager wins on my phone after Neurospicy Artemis disappeared.

Magnifying Glass + Ant = unhappy ant.
Eyeball + Sun = Magnifying Glass + Ant
= unhappy ant.

Sun to the power of ant = magnifying glass.
Ant to the power of sun = unhappy ant.
Error: Used ant twice.

I admin our small town's most active Facebook group, so I have to hang around for that.

Now I'm a bit sad. A part of my childhood has died. bash.org.

I know there was one where someone was typing on IRC while driving his truck, and ends his quote with "fuck just rear ended a lady" but no way to find that quote directly now.

That was years ago, before smart phones I think.

Yep. It's nice to know you're in control of it. Not like bloody AnyDesk which decided one day out of the blue to remove the TCP Tunneling feature I was using.

Those words can be arranged in different positions to get a different meaning.

Nice. Mine runs on top of the fish tank on an old netbook. What sort of tablet?

A weirdo tries some major CAD suites, but also a bunch of half-baked bizarre free CAD program out there...

TL;DR: I tried lots of CAD stuff with an eye towards someday being able to commercialize designs. F360 would be great if I could trust Autodesk. Solid Edge, Solidworks, and Onshape all have issues too. I want to make myself like FreeCAD. Some other options like Alibre are interesting, and many get weeeeird....

Most likely it won't work as very few websites will work with XP's level of SSL security these days.

My 2014 Toshiba i7 still chugs along. Technically it's two laptops in one as the first one if it was rebooted while hot the GPU would go all 1024x768 in the top left corner. The replacement mainboard I got ended up being an AMD one but if I enable the AMD chip in device manager it simply dies so it uses the onboard Intel HD graphics instead.

1GB SSD, plus 2GB HDD in an optical bay adapter.

It's on its third battery - works for about an hour but jumps to 7% within a minute of running on battery, so if I put it to sleep etc it won't go again without power.

MP3DirectCut - https://mpesch3.de/ - might also suit. I use it a lot for community radio stuff as it doesn't have to pre-load the entire file, making extracting interviews from the MP3 log files a very quick process. Cue the file, B for begin, N for end, File, Save selection, done.

Star Wars - the one where R2D2 gets zapped by Sand People and falls over with a comical thud.

Haven't seen it for yonks, but enjoy it when I do.
