Introduction, sort of long 

Hi, I'm tux93 which is a very creative name I gave myself when starting to dabble in ( 11.2 to be more preciese) back when I was 16.

The name stuck and nowdays I spend my free time maintaining a hand full of packages on the Open Build Service and working in tech support for my dayjob.

Aside from that I like to dabble in although I recently rarely got around to the editing part which has lead to quite a backlog...

Does anyone know artists in the EU that do art full time as their work? Wife is still looking for someone to ask questions of.

@MadestMadness As a programmer, the only thing I hate more than computers not doing what I tell them to is computers doing exactly what I tell them to.

They don't teach you in school that the hardest part of programming is naming stuff. And dependency hell

Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable.
I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?

Origins of the youtube-dl project 

"As you may know, as of the time this text is being written youtube-dl’s repository at GitHub is blocked due to a DMCA takedown letter received by GitHub on behalf of the RIAA. While I cannot comment on the current maintainers' plans or ongoing discussions, in light of the claims made in that letter I thought it would be valuable to put in writing the first years of youtube-dl as the project creator and initial maintainer."
