I gotta hand it to systemd on that point though, my Linux of choice has never started up faster or more reliably.

I find runit to be rather good at this.

Wasn't that supposed to be Windows 10?  Like, it was supposed to be a "rolling update" operating system? 

Well, it rolled to 11 now.

systemd aimed to improve the startup speed - but they said it was especially good "for servers". Now how often do you usually restart your servers?
Also, yup - if systemd would have remained a SysV init replacement, it would probably be ok-ish. Instead, they added stuff that renames your network devices on each boot.

If you want reliability, you don't want Linux with systemd.

At the same time, Linux has become notably shittier when the majority of distributions introduced systemd, a svchost.exe clone with a bizarre understanding of how Linux was supposed to work.

They even killed text log files.

Looking forward to when they get rid of version numbers altogether.

You can also install Rust and then "cargo install yaydl".

Yup, it was a mistake caused by yaydl using an undocumented API.
Fixed in 0.6.6. The last release for today. Pinky promise!

Wait no longer!

It turns out that YouTube marks some videos as "unplayable" in its API. yaydl will now say it does not exist.  :)

Version 0.6.4 was updated to use a newer version of the YouTube API. I hope it helps!

(I'll probably update it to 0.6.5 to better display YouTube-side errors...)

I still use OneNote. I would have to check which version it is.

Are we supposed to post our NANY 2022 projects here and they'll be moved then?

I know, there are massive problems with certain YouTube (and even VOE) videos, e.g. those which are a playlist (or split into many .ts files) won't work at all...
Still no help. :(

Pretty sure that the weirdos will skip "13" anyway because of, uh, reasons.

I liked that site when I still cared for and about freeware. I even was (or still am? I should check that) an editor once. The problem is that there is no actual discussion going on there. Every editor can just act freely, making the site a collection of articles of varying depth and quality.

FYI, we're at 0.6.1 (upstream) now, additionally supporting three more sites.
If anyone here has a Windows machine, feel free to attach an updated binary here - everyone else can just grab it from the usual repositories (on Windows, that includes Cargo).

Never cared about either. That’s the difference between investors and hipsters.

The difference between stocks and crypto-something is that stocks are an investment and crypto-something is a fraud.

Enjoy.

Sadly, still not one single patch from anyone but me!  :P
