Torrent Paradise (IPFS)
Not updated, and the API is unavailable, but better than nothing! https://github.com/urbanguacamole/torrent-paradise

I agree. It’s a whole business, and of course everything is automated. They hire companies overseas that monitor the most popular torrents, and when they see a German IP a letter is sent to the “offender” address.


I once arrived in Germany, opened my laptop with a bittorrent client seeding some movie torrents, took me 5 minutes to realise and close it. 2 days later got a 800 euros fine in the mail, for one movie. A friend of mine got less lucky and got a hefty 20000 euros fine for multiple torrents. There are horror stories of Airbnb hosts getting fined hundreds of thousands for the torrenting of their guests.

I have since downloaded torrents in Germany, but not before being sure that my VPN setup immediately closes the internet connection if the VPN one drops. Private trackers should be fine.



Abusing unicode fonts is a usability nightmare; even if screen readers do their best announcing them, just avoid doing it in general. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZH7A5LnveoI


You can’t report a subreddit. Only individual posts.



Meilleur je sais pas, ça a foutu en l’air mes userstyles.


My mostly black wardrobe comes from the street and second-hand shops, except for underwear. Everything fits in a backpack. So my style might be nerdy eco-conscious pseudo-hobo? Hahaha fashion is a joke really, an embarrassment of riches, a waste of time and resources.


You could try using another DNS service, sometimes that’s enough.


Had this idea for a less stupid copyright law for creative works: author’s death + 7 years. This way direct descendants have a magical grace period of 7 years to cash in if they want to, before everything becomes public domain, as it should be.


Yes, I guess. It’s not continuity like the one you can have from one dreaming session to the next time you get asleep, but more like everything dreamed before, interwoven in the same place and time, but making sense?


It might sound weird, but I have my own fictional universe, and I get to experience it randomly every few years while sleeping. I call it the meta dream, it’s basically the addition of all the characters, situations, and stories of all my previous dreams. As you can imagine it’s really dense, but without being confusing since I already know all its details. I usually wake up from it exhausted but really happy, like if I’ve just read the best book ever written.



they add no value whatsoever

If they don’t get blocked automatically, I guess that’s some value?


The Complete Works Of H.P. Lovecraft. If you enjoyed them, you can then read the really good “H.P. Lovecraft: Against the World, Against Life” by Michel Houellebecq (not public domain, but I don’t think he cares)


I answer kindly to issues and questions from inexperienced users (they often go unanswered), even the most stupid (RTFM) or blunt ones (SHIT IS BROKEN!), so the maintainers don’t have to.




  • uBlock Origin (obviously)
  • Stylus (quick user styles)
  • Archive Page (one click archive.today)
  • SingleFile (archive HTML pages locally)
  • ARIA DevTools (for quick a11y audits)

Will do! I will start with switching main.css to logical properties, and then have a look at the themes…
