i wish he'd titled this differently because almost none of it is specific to men, but i understand why he did.

i've shown this video to many survivors of IPV and it tends to ring true i think. it did for me.

bethesda is currently in the process of burning every ounce of brand goodwill attached to every single one of their most valuable IPs, in exchange for basically nothing

i don't know how well this works as satire, because all these weird things the author has made up are way tamer than the actual security concerns raised by malicious code in npm modules, so it might be read by some as trivializing the very real problems with Using All This Code U Didn't Write Or Even Look At Before Running

still funny, tho

they were recommended by a friend who works in computer security, they had a free trial so i could make sure it worked on my phone and all my OSes, and they had servers everywhere i wanted. there may be better options out there but i've never had any problems with mullvad.

i haven't tried self-hosted VPNs, but if you want privacy then routing your traffic through something you are billed for directly seems less than ideal. i use mullvad for VPN, but i'm less interested in privacy and more interested in just having decent speeds and streaming access to BBC radio 1 from north america. for whatever it's worth, they do seem to have decent privacy measures in place and as far as i know they don't block torrents either. their account system works on randomly generated numbers only, and they claim to keep no DNS logs whatsoever, but you kind of have to take them at their word as there's no real way to verify it.

each individual track from the mixer at the recording studio before it all got mixed down into one song. so the guitar will be isolated from the drums and the vocals and the keyboards etc, and they'll all be separate audio files that you can use at will

it's things like this that keep me from publishing on these streaming platforms... i know i lose out on exposure (and maybe a couple pennies, cause streaming royalties are a farce unless you're carly rae jepsen) but i don't feel right about the level of control they're able to exert on the ways in which people decide what to listen to
