They had to have noticed how inefficiently the game loads from the start.
They obviously didn't notice since it took them 7 years to fix it and only after an annoyed consumer did 99% of the work for them.

They obviously didn't use any profiling tools to see why their game was taking so fucking long to load.

If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. This isn't a tween safe space. That much should be obvious.
Considering I have had an account on this site since 2004 and been reading it even before that, that makes it impossible for me to be a "tween". But even ignoring that there's a huge difference between "tween safe space" and a forum full of deplorables. You seem to be part of the latter.

Blue, how come you don't use some CDN to front the website? That way even if your server is down, you can still serve cached home page.

It's a github link, so it's not like an installed app that updates automatically.
Sure it does. Just run it with -U and it'll update automatically.
jdreyer wrote on Dec 13, 2020, 16:04:
It's a useful app, and I'm glad to know that it's updated. It's really useful to back up a lot of the por... I mean, cool YouTube videos like the LockPickingLawyer.
I didn't say it's not useful.
However, usefulness of bi-daily release announcements is meh.

Blue, I feel it's a bit too verbose to post announcements of every youtube-dl release.
What happened with the app recently was a news-worthy event. But now that it's back, is it really that significant to post about its maintenance releases? Especially since they seem to release a new version every 2-3 days... People who use the app will get its update regardless, and people who don't use it probably don't really care that there's a new version out every other day.
Just seems like you are putting your ongoing effort into something that's not that news-worthy anymore.

Idk, man, complaints about the time change seem to me to be really just complaints about winter in the northern hemisphere. The problem isn't the time change or lack there of; the problem is that there are only 9 hours of daylight on the winter solstice. Stay on daylight savings time year round and we have to wake up and go to work in the dark for most of the winter; just stay on standard year round and those long summer evenings get an hour shorter. Daylight savings is an imperfect system to synchronize the seasonally changing number of daylight hours with when humans are awake and going about their day. Abolish it if you want, but you're still stuck with a paltry 9 hours of daylight in December.

*hour figures are approximations for NYC; actual numbers vary for your latitude obviously.
100% disagree.
I'd rather wake up when it's "dawn" rather than it be dark at 4:30pm!
I can take more advantage of the daylight when I have free time after work rather than hella early in the morning when I just wake up.

The root cause is that US' timezones are too wide.
For example today sunset in Louisville, KY is at 5:42 PM, but at 4:36 PM in Boston. Both cities are are on opposite sides of Eastern timezone. That's over an hour shift in the day cycle! So people that live on the eastern edge of any given timezone have earlier sunsets, while people that live on the western edge of the same timezone have darker mornings.

I like my Roku box. Its search for content across all the supported channels/apps is extremely useful.
I also got it for my mom and grandma and helped them cut the cord by using my subscription to SlingTV.

However, lack of working TwitchTV stream is a disappointment. :/ All the 3rd party twitch apps no longer work either.
Luckily my Vizio TV has chromecast builtin, so I can still fall back on that if I'm really in the mood for that.

I suspect it is the curmudgeon in me... but I don't get it. Why did anyone think this was a good idea? What am I gaining by playing games off cloud servers? I guess if I traveled a lot it might be okay. But overall the cons seem to out weigh the pros so heavily...
I play a lot less games than I used to in the past. My current desktop is about 6 years old. I could easily build a new desktop, but at the same time I feel I wouldn't be taking full advantage of that ~$1000 I'd spend on a decent system.
While this service is a great alternative. I have a huge games library and still buy games if I see good sales.

I don't feel like I want to invest in Stadia's ecosystem with unknown future and limited game selection. And in my experience Geforce Now's image streaming quality is better than Stadia's. Stadia too often becomes a blurrfest while geforcenow has been very stable.
