Hello, I'm Phate6660. I also go by valley, phate, and Valley6660.

I'm a Linux enthusiast who programs for fun, and I'm also a privacy activist (to a fault really).

I also watch quite a lot of anime.

You can find me here (obviously), Github/Codeberg/sourcehut, Discord,, and the ZDoom forums.

So had -dl stopped supporting age restricted videos or "API" changed?

what my girlfriend thought dating a software engineer would be like: "honey, I got an AI robot maid to do all our cooking for us"

what dating a software engineer is actually like: "if that microwave connects to the internet we're heating all our food with a blowtorch from now on"

Running "real " on phones means you can use same methods to debug/develop as on a desktop. I fired up cProfiler to investigate why starts up slowly on my .

Ended up submitting four patches, one of them makes cover and the "pill" of new/downloaded podcasts look sharp on high res displays (see screenshot, didn't realize how blurry it was until investigating this 😀) and a one liner that fixes loading cached thumbnails. Got a ~20s faster startup!

Showed my dad NewPipe and my dad's exact words were "Why would anyone ever use the YouTube app then?" He's right, use NewPipe ladies and gents

What language should I use for the program in the first poll (note -- Go, Swift, and some others I forget are **off limits**, I hate those languages and refuse to use them):

I dunno what to make.
I decided maybe I'll try re-writing a common tool I use.
So, here's a poll (1/2, 2 will be the language):

Do hashtags really help?
They reeeeaaaaally fucking irk me.
But if they do, I'll deal with it and get used to using them.

Ayyyyy I hit 1k posts.
How'd I miss that?

Also in 5 days I'll hit a year on Fosstodon.

Anyone want to try with me?

I've been wanting to play it since I saw the post by @andri about it.

I have it set up to play with other later (probably in a few hours), but I'm anxious to try it.

I love trivia games even though I usually suck at them.
