Hi!

If I don't follow you or know you, please write me a short message - how did you find me or even better, something about yourself. We can get to know each other better this way. Thanks!

Once again:

PLEASE @ ME BEFORE FOLLOWING THX

Does anyone have tips for cats to (1) stop them from scratching at doors or (2) stop them from fixating?

We moved and cat is reverting to old habits. She wants the doors open but she cannot have them open. Anti-scratch sprays do not work. Double-sided tapes, aluminum foil, and draft blockers also don't work. Last time it took 6 weeks and a motion-detecting spray can which we do not have. She has toys and scratching posts, she's just being a dick and I am TIRED.

OMG, am dying!!!

Someone used the bug GitHub refused to fix, that allows you to add a commit to a repo you don’t control... to upload YouTube-dl to the DMCA request repo on GitHub.

Extracting mail utils into their own module where I can run tests on JVM was the best decision so far, saved myself a couple of hours at least.

When the Napster Wars began, the RIAA represented the Big Six record labels. Today, it represents the Big THREE labels, as an entire realm of human endeavor stretching back to a time before language itself is now the near-exclusive purview of three giant corporations.

They are tightening the noose. Yesterday, the RIAA sent a DMCA 1201 takedown notice to Github demanding the removal of youtube-dl, a venerable and popular tool for format-shifting Youtube videos.
