On the night of January 13, 1991, soviet troops attempted to seize power just months after Lithuania declared independence. 14 people died during the violence. While I was only 4 years old, that night is etched into my memory. Long live, Lithuania 🇱🇹 #freedom #independece #Lietuva #Lithuania https://www.lrt.lt/en/news-in-english/19/1318363/january-13-1991-the-night-when-lithuania-faced-soviet-troops-through-the-eyes-of-ordinary-people
Wrote blog post about #fediverse in #Lithuanian 🇱🇹 - hope this will help to spread the idea of ethical social networks and importance of avoiding toxic media 💪Available @gytis https://blog.gyt.is/lt/2020/12/29/etiski-socialiniai-tinklai-federacija/
Finally able to use G-SYNC enabled #Dell monitor with #LinuxMint - needed to hard-reset monitor (unplug power, hold on button for more than 40 s) to get video through #DisplayPort - now S2417DG works just fine with GeForce 1070 Ti: both monitor and proprietary driver confirms G-SYNC mode 👍 https://www.dell.com/community/Monitors/S2417DG-DP-issues-hard-reset-it/td-p/5114016 #hardware #gaming #nvidia Attn. @gamingonlinux @ubuntu

Origins of the youtube-dl project
"As you may know, as of the time this text is being written youtube-dl’s repository at GitHub is blocked due to a DMCA takedown letter received by GitHub on behalf of the RIAA. While I cannot comment on the current maintainers' plans or ongoing discussions, in light of the claims made in that letter I thought it would be valuable to put in writing the first years of youtube-dl as the project creator and initial maintainer."
The RIAA used the DMCA to take down youtube-dl even though youtube-dl doesn’t infringe on any RIAA copyrights. That's not how it's supposed to work. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/11/riaa-abuses-dmca-take-down-popular-tool-downloading-online-video
