Tech Tips - protips, life hacks

I finally figured out how to watch youtube playlists in reverse after years of relying on shitty browser extensions that keep breaking
  1. install mpv
  2. put youtube-dl.exe in mpv installation folder
  3. run
    Code:
    mpv https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIcn3kkOW_amAs8bXXmf1l3-Tcsha6o4r --ytdl-raw-options=playlist-reverse=
watch entire channels in chronological order like God intended:
Code:
mpv https://www.youtube.com/SleepyCabin --ytdl-raw-options=playlist-reverse=

it works with bitchute channels but fails to get NSFW/NSFL videos:
Code:
mpv https://www.bitchute.com/channel/KiwiFarms --ytdl-raw-options=playlist-reverse=

Picture-in-picture (can resize to any size unlike in chromium): add --ontop --no-border

If you're still part of the botnet and use (((Windows))) you can move windows with the arrow keys while holding windows/super and if you hold shift while doing that you can switch between monitors. Also if you do ctrl+tab number (alt on GNyU/Linux) it'll take you to that tab. I have no need for a mouse anymore.

I resent the times when I'm forced to use the mouse in windows and a lot of other programs. I have macroed so much shit to a secondary numpad that I hardly remember any shortcuts. Pro-life tech tip: get a USB numpad or secondary keyboard, download Intercept or LUA Macros and AutoHotKey, then go nuts. The few times I post an article I paste it in Notepad++ then press a key that deals with formatting and removing HTML garbage and strange formatting.

Not really a pro tip but if you are a Luddite like me don't be a fool and get an SSD if you have the money.

I got used to using linux which feels snappy even on a mechanical drive. Doing more gaming recently on my windows laptop and always annoyed at how sluggish Windows 10 is. How the fuck is my decade old thinkpad making this gaming laptop feel like a potato in comparison?

Installed an nvme SSD on it recently and the difference is night and day. Windows feels usable now. I feel like an asshole for not doing it sooner.

random album:

javascript:location.href='https://www.discogs.com/release/'+Math.floor(Math.random()*16000000);
update the number to 17000000 in a year or two, discogs lists about 300k new releases per year


random movie/TV series/etc.:
JavaScript:
javascript:location.href='https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=feature,tv_movie,tv_series,tv_special,tv_miniseries,documentary,video_game,short,video,tv_short&adult=include&moviemeter='+Math.floor(Math.random()*2000000);
you can decrease this number to get more popular results. 2000000 is every title listed on IMDB, changing it to 1000 would only select from the top 1K most popular titles
