I'm back, baby!

A video that I made 10 months ago about Windows 11 and the slippery slope of anti-ownership we're on somehow managed to blow up over the past few weeks. I found myself skyrocketing from around 1,400 subscribers on YouTube less than one month ago to over 8,000 subscribers today. I've also had a lot of great discussions with people in the comment sections of both that video and several others in my back catalog that have gained new attention, and I'm starting to see some real support (of both the moral and financial types) for what I've been screaming from my tiny soapbox.

Because of this influx of support, I can now focus on producing actual content and keeping this SubscribeStar page up-to-date. I'm still working on the promised documentary about the rise and rot of user interfaces, plus I have a follow-up to the Windows 11 Must Be Stopped video that got me so much attention coming out in the next day or two--there are quite a few details that changed in the 10 months prior to all this attention and there are several responses I want to address.

I highly recommend that you also follow my video work on non-YouTube services. I have video presence on BitChute, Odysee, Rumble, Brighteon, DailyMotion, and Minds. I will have my entire back catalog up-to-date on these services within the next day or two.

Thanks to everyone for all your support. I really appreciate it, and I hope that my future endeavors are worth your time and money.

I made youtube-dlc faster when using an archive file

For all the details as well as a video showing off the difference in performance, read my article on jodybruchon.com! The short version is that I made the archive file feature of youtube-dlc (a fork of youtube-dl) massively quicker. The article explains the programming process and shows the steps I took along the way.

Goals

$31 of $100
per month
Consistent, planned development time can be put on my schedule when I reach this goal. I will allocate a two-hour minimum block per week (at least eight total hours per month) to work on my open source software projects. You'll be able to see that work is being done by looking at my Git commits in my repositories.
$31 of $800
per month
Upon hitting this goal, I'll allocate at least five hours per week (20 hours per month) to working on my open source software. I will also start working on video tutorials and better documentation for the software rather than strictly working on the code, because knowing how to use the software effectively is at least as important as having it available. This will effectively make open source software development a part-time job.
$31 of $3,000
per month
Full independence! I am 100% certain that this level of support will enable me to cleanly shut down my existing businesses within 2-3 months of hitting this goal and switch to full-time open source software development. This goal's result is not 100% guaranteed. Closing down my other income sources is a very dangerous thing. If I reached this goal but my subscribers are suspiciously unbalanced in favor of a few high-value contributors, and those contributors were actually trolls behind a campaign to hit this goal and then pull all of that high-value support once I have shut down my other sources of income, I would be in serious financial trouble and have no significant source of income left. That's why the 2-3 month delay between this goal being reached and my full-time commitment to open source work cannot be avoided.
