Hmm, interesting - https://freetubeapp.io/ - wonder how long before the Goog makes an API tweak to render this useless.

Edit:
Ick!! Electron.... maybe not so interesting then.

It works well enough. No tabs though.
But I wonder - it's basically the same as opening the web page in a browser, no? and without the added benefit of various resource-blocking addons?

^Awebb was great.

Pity Arch insist that people join up in order to view their forum though. Or maybe that particular subsection is considered Private...

Post output of:

journalctl -b -u cat.service

Provided she's being properly fed, she might be feeling lonely, feeling insecure for some reason, or possibly is sick. So depending on the output, I'd try one or more of:

systemctl enable daily-petting-sessions.timer
vet --examine cat
pacman -S companion-cat
Trilby wrote:
systemctl disable cat

Of course, who wants to care for a disabled cat!

kill cat

Unless of course you've also installed companion-cat already:

killall cat

Then...

pacman -Rsn litter-box
make clean

I'm not so sure. Last time I remember he spoke about saving the cats (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 7#p1846497) but he actually removed them.

I suppose this is expected from a parrot - not liking cats I mean.

And when you next see that cat in act of copying my hat, tell him that that act of wearing the hat makes the cat in the hat just another copy cat.  Then give him the bird.  That turd.  It's really absurd: a copy cat in a hat.  And that's that.

That last paragraph...

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

I thought this was pretty cool, bringing the BUILD enginefps back for a refresh on a totally new game with inspiration from Duke Nukem, one for the ladies this one as the protagonist is a female.
Reminds me of days playing unreal and quake when they first came out on an Ibm back in the day.

Interesting views of cities - Poverty and Wealth revealed - who built those high-rises? Just look around you... a little further, on the other side of the highway.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

I think it's my favorite John Cleese character, basically the same premise as the Dead Parrot sketch (also John and Michael Palin in similar roles). In that, John is angry from the get-go, but in Cheese Shop there is a delicious progression as he realizes he's being had but decides he'll have a bit if fun with it.

Confuse-A-Cat is my favorite silly sketch, though I admit there are severla better ones. Cleese morphing from the village idiot into an intellectual for an interview, then back when a local walks by, that's good comedy...

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

Monty Python sketches are all about situation development & communication and never about "punch lines" (see the restaurant sketch, that even makes a joke out of the punch line).
What I quoted from the Cheese Shop sketch wasn't the punchline at all, even though they're the last words spoken.
One simply needs to hear it all. It's very communist, actually...
