Finally, we have /tech/ back. I uploaded these right before Zchan kicked the bucket, let's see what the anons around here can make.

We talk all the time about our preferred operating systems, programs, and window managers, but how do you think software affects people beyond productivity? Can an operating system push people towards creativity or make them lazy? Can chat protocols or different kinds of message boards shape how people think and act? Does using a window manager or the raw virtual console benefit you as a person more than suffering through Gnome Shell? Or are all our software choices just personal tastes that don't affect anything?

>you have problem with X program? well then use Y other program that's also filled with problems
I'll ask again, how can you expect to ever make software good this way?

By prioritizing bigger problems first like Gimp's developers are finally doing. I'll take all of Gimp 2.99's refactoring, better support for color space (the biggest issue holding professionals back from using Gimp, not muh squares), and other improvements over a dinky square tool anyday.

Firstly a geometric shape tool is much more fundamental and important to much more people than some color spaces, secondly "professionals" aren't going to give a shit about Gimp for a long long time when they can just pay $40 to get Affinity Photo which does everything 50 times better, thirdly it would take a day or two to add a geometric shape tool to the program, and fourthly Krita, the program you're suggesting as an alternative is the apex example of completely fucked up priorities.

Is this because of Jewgle's mischief or host incompetence?

The way I use youtube without javascript is I have a dozen or so channels bookmarked and check their rss feed to see if there's anything new I want to watch. Might do this every week or so.

Copy the links one by one into a text file and run youtube-dl -a . If I want the video's description for a link in there or more information I just have to use --write-description on that video's URL.

For search I do what >>401 does. All that youtube is for me is a video file hosting service. No ads, no thumbnails and no suggested content. No dealing with youtube front-ends either.

same here. I have to refresh the page a dozen times before anything will load.

I just use mpv https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49koBNWIuy4 (you need to have mpv + youtube-dl + ffmpeg + rtmpdump installed for this to work)

Those services violate the terms of use and is exactly an abuse which they can rightfully block.
Host is fine unless it is unreachable, the problem is the instances are blocked all the time or they upgrade the stuff and become incompatible pretty much like NewPipe and youtube's cat and mouse game where it breaks ever now and then.
