#gaming is in my blood
I enjoy playful flirtations with my imagination, inspired by gaming. The emotional adventures that can be had.
I enthuse, I write, I podcast and champion the niche in almost all forms of entertainment.
I prefer communities that support consideration and mutual respect, maturity and passionate discussion.
I'm a Dad and a Kid (at heart).
Games, even at their most basic, can unlock realms of excitement and untold adventure.. bring it...
I've kind of found the answer, although it often opens two browser windows for some strange reason..
The Automatic clipboard match regex:
`var link = str(clipboard()).replace(/youtube.com/g, 'invidio.us')
So, whenever I copy a YT link, it opens a browser window with the appropriate invidio.us link.
Now to add youtu.be links to it.
I like the power available to #copyq but the UI takes some time to familiarise yourself with.
He made us all heroes.
If we listened.
Malign him not.
Billions wear the cape because of him.
Billions found their strength beyond strength.
Children raise their hand with imaginary powers.
Grown-ups adorn themselves with the shield.
Every time you make a fist, you feel the claws at the back of your hands.
The Helmet, The hammer, The Armor, The Anger, mutant, mutate, alien, or god.
Billions are mighty.
Does anyone know how to configure an automatic command in #copyq clipboard manager?
I'm just plain failing at what seems the simplest of tasks..
When I copy a YT link, I want copyq to replace the "youtube.com" part of it with "invidio.us". So I can paste it into a browser window and watch the vid without Google watching me.

Philip K Dick managed to watch a part of #BladeRunner before it aired. This is what he wrote:
"Nothing that we have done, individually or collectively, matches BLADE RUNNER. This is not escapism; it is super realism, so gritty and detailed and authentic and goddam convincing that, well, after the segment I found my normal present-day "reality" pallid by comparison."
« [...] surveillance capitalism makes it harder to organize effective long-term dissent. In an setting where attention is convertible into money, social media will always reward drama, dissent, conflict, iconoclasm and strife. There will be no comparable rewards for cooperation, de-escalation, consensus-building, or compromise, qualities that are essential for the slow work of building a movement. »

#Hive is a UK-based wholesaler-owned bookshop with home delivery or collection from local indie bookshops (who get a cut of the sale):
You can also adopt a local bookshop, who get a cut of your orders regardless of delivery method.
Pro Tip: If you want to be *really* supportive of your local bookshop, phone/email them to order through them directly. Price and delivery time is the same, but they get a bigger share of the price.
