With the most recent release of #NewPipe (0.20.0) I've spontaneously started picking it over the official #YouTube #Android app for playback. It's just that good now. Automatic transition to background/windowed playback when switching from the app *rocks*!
It's not a completely seamless transition yet, there's a noticeable hiccup when that happens, but I have faith in #opensource community.
Google to make third-party app store use easier with Android 12
@uguha @rf я с появлением на рынке eGPU под Thunderbolt 3 перестал вообще рассматривать ноутбуки с дискретными видеокартами.
Потому что от мощной видеокарты в ноуте толку мало: (1) надо охлаждать, (2) от аккумулятора всё равно ни во что требовательное не поиграть продолжительное время.
Но даже встроенные карты нынче могучие, способны и на 4к60, и на работу с 3 мониторами сразу (хотя требуют для этого док или хаб). И всё это не в ущерб транспортабельности.
@laemeur actually, yes. Even though I have never ever been on Usenet. I stumbled upon it on Wikipedia when poking around shadow banning: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plonk_(Usenet)
I especially loved this part:

...but yes, chances of someone having read that in 2020 are vanishingly low.
@johnshirley2020 also new here; I think your best bet is browsing hashtags with keywords you're looking for and subscribing to interesting authors you find there. Groups are represented with the same kind of accounts as people, they relay posts by "boosting" them to their subscribers.
Hashtags are a hit and miss though because they are not curated and can have different meanings in different posts, but that's a part of their appeal for discovery purposes: they are open to absolutely everyone.
The sign up section has been moved to a separate page, the confusingly interchanging usage of tech jargon like "instance" and "server" has been removed in favour of "community". The questions "can I move my account later" and "can I talk to people from other communities" is answered upfront. Categories are now at the front and the communities are grouped by language with a prominent language filter option. Communities that don't offer instant sign-up are now clearly marked as such upfront.
Technology fanatic, I'm into smart homes, self-education, self-hosted services and e-biking.
