Completely OT: saw a comment from you on Unglossed and thought Rube Goldberg's razor...

Hmmmm Hanlon's razor = "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity"

Rube Goldberg = "complicated gadgets performing simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways"

Combine them and you have a substack name describing the pandemic: "Our 'leaders" designed complicated procedures, protocols and mandates to perform the simple task of keeping society 'safe' = 'healthy' via indirect, convoluted ways, not due to malice, but due to stupidity."

Stupidity mostly derived from "we gotta do something!!" and "polling shows the people we polled like what we're doing, keep doing it!!!", ignoring long-term debacle these actions will produce.


Alas it was Occam's razor, and invokes a more oxymoron combination - still clever, no question, but....

G'day. Nice to make your acquaintance.

Recently, I discovered this. https://github.com/lay295/TwitchDownloader/releases TwitchDownloader (for Windows, MacOS, Linux) that seems to work pretty good. Just past the video id (from the URL) into the VOD Link/ID box, click "Get Info" and if it finds it, it can pull it. There are sometimes errors, but when I closed the app and tried again in 30 minutes it worked well.

Anyhow, thought I'd share that before I forgot. Too bad there's no DMs in Substack (but there is a subscriber chat that the author can post to their subscribers).

I hope things are going well!

Looks like they're trying to kill you off on Twitter. https://twitter.com/bioanon_1vy_ Up until yesterday I was still able to read your feed.
