He’s term-limited anyway. Just hope he doesn’t pave the way for Le Pen or some other out and out fascist to take over for him.


It’s to do with licensing fees. Just hosting a show carries a cost for the streamer, and if it isn’t driving growth or retaining customers enough to justify that cost, it’s going to get cut. https://www.cnbc.com/2023/05/29/streaming-services-remove-movies-shows-heres-why.html


If you’re on Apple platforms you can try NetNewsWire. Comes with a Safari extension that you can use to easily add a feed and it syncs with iCloud and/or Feedly. Edit: grammar


I’ve heard about that, but it’s not available in the US yet.


That’s my problem, actually. I very much do not want music bundled with ad-free YouTube. I’d pay a reasonable price for an unbundled version, but the Premium family plan is more than the top-tier Netflix or Max subscription.


They already sent a legal warning to them but apparently didn’t realize that Invidious doesn’t use their API and never agreed to any terms of service.


Also you can’t block communities on Mlem, which is really annoying if you don’t want to see all the yiff content


Anchorage, Alaska is considering a dramatic simplification of zoning codes to address their housing shortage. The proposal divides the city into just two residential zones, one for areas with municipal services and one for areas on wells and septic. Not only greater density but also compatible non-residential uses would be permitted.

Odd-numbered interstates travel north-south, even ones east-west.

Oh and the numbers start in the west and south and get higher the further east and north you go. So the west coast equivalent of I-95 is I-5.



Weird. In my Star Trek circles it’s pretty much universally acknowledged as a great episode and a particularly off-the-wall Avery Brooks performance.


Hmm, “Duet” has already been mentioned, but the season 2 finale “The Jem’Hadar” is where the show really comes into its own for me. Also “Past Tense”, “Trials and Trible-ations”, “The Way of the Warrior”, and pretty much the entire last three seasons. Some fun one-offs would be “Our Man Bashir”, “Bada Bing Bada Bang”, and “Take Me Out to the Holosuite”. Some more dramatic ones would include “The Siege of AR-558” and “It’s Only a Paper Moon”. Then of course “In the Pale Moonlight” and “Far Beyond the Stars” are some of the best in all of Star Trek.
