Do you watch YouTube a lot? Are you addicted to it, or just need it for your work?
Do the ads cause you a headache?
There is nothing better than suddenly showing an Ad in the middle of streaming from YouTube to a bigger audience (possibly on a bigger screen and using bigger, much louder audio equipment). This may ruin a lot and put distraction in time when you need people to concentrate on presented material (either video or just audio).
This may annoy you and others to the extent that you will think to pay this £11.99 per month for YouTube Premium only to get rid of this annoyance.
But what if I will tell you there is a better (and cheaper) way?
You may say what you want about Google Analytics, especially about how “they” are, apart from displaying data for you, using data gathered for “their” business purpose (forget about privacy). If you are a website owner and you are looking for a reasonable tracking method for your visitors, this is the solution that you will pick in the first place.
The problem with Google Analytics is that their tracking script weights a lot and that is slowing down your website.
If you’re thinking about sharing some of your thoughts or creations with the wider public, one of the good things is to start your website - a blog for example.
Initially, you may think that social media could do the job, but think about social media as a tool to promote your creation, not as a primary place for it. Always back up your stuff with something that is yours.
A blog, where you own the content is yours, not somebody else. On social media you don’t own stuff that you publish, social media companies did and they profit from it.
I have been using my M1 MacBook Air since the end of July 2021, when I replaced my beefed MacBook Pro that I purchased over a year earlier.
It was some kind of a downgrade at the time. My MacBook Pro (2020) has twice the memory and twice of storage as my “basic” MacBook Air. Also, I purchased my MacBook Air refurbished directly from Apple.
Months are passing. We already got rumours of MacBooks with M2’s to be released this year, but still, I look on my MacBook Air, and I can’t believe how such a small thing like an M1 chip could do such a big shakeup on the market.
“You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day.”
That’s how the TV Series Person of Interest used to start in the past.
Since the last series was aired in 2016 past couple of interesting years. This TV fiction shows how abuse of power could lead to invigilation of the world citizens.
The problem starts when the fiction starts becoming reality, and we do not even know about it.
I decided to move yet another website from WordPress to Hugo. This time the website has much more traffic than any other “of mines” (the ones that I am managing).
The main reason was speed (but also recent discussion about the environment and impact of technologies on it).
Just a thought…
Politics blaming each other’s, but right now trying to blame European people, that they don’t want to come and help Britain in need.
Everybody forgets what was shown last year. Thousands of HGV trucks have been stuck in companies car parks as they were not needed. The world has been fighting with Covid so no such many goods have been moving around.
When you buy Solid State Drive (SDD) the last thing is to have your drive fail and all files are lost.
With SSD is not as easy to restore anything as it could be with mechanical drives. If they fail it’s rarely anybody will bother to fix it, and most companies will just give you a new drive if it’s still on warranty.
Don’t expect any money back or help in the restoration of your files from faulty drives. None of the warranty covers that from any manufacturers - end of the story.
However, in this rare instance of failure, you expect swift action without any hassle and any extra cost for yourself. You already have a big (unrectified) cost for losing all your data so why to get another one?
And here the problem occurs.
