I found a more decent-looking add-on for YouTube that shows you video ratings before you click on the video and find out it’s crap. This time, the ratings fit cleanly under each thumbnail and look a lot better.
Every time I find something useful that I know other people would also enjoy, I’ll share it on this blog.
This is probably the first time I’ve ever posted a relatively complete story bio on the Night Troupe but here goes:
Normally when I attempt to find a site listing search syntax usable on YouTube, I often get crappy results but I finally got one!
YouTube search syntax
What they neglect to mention is that you can also look up categories such as “how to & style” or “people & blogs” but I think you may have to memorize the exact spelling or the syntax may not work though I haven’t tested it.
Of course syntax that works in most search engines like the hyphen prefix to exclude something or the quotations for the exact thing will work.
Edit: Okay, I just tested a search using only the word “blogs” instead of “people & blogs” and the engine didn’t filter by category.
I was always the youngest in the family. When I was born in 1990, the younger of my two sisters was already nine and my eldest sister eleven. Continue Reading
I really need to decide on a capitalization pattern for my typos. I don’t know whether to capitalize every non-particle or just capitalize the first letter. That aside, I bring a Wikipedia find.
Wikipedia is a source of amazing trivia and obscure information for nerds and aspies to go crazy over. One of these topics of interest is obscure punctuation.
Used in mathematics, though not much elsewhere used are the therefore/because marks.
I could see it becoming great for shorthand, though other contractions already exist.
Reminds me of the time I tried to incorporate shorthand into my hand-written journal before I threw in the towel and went full-on digital.
I could make great usage of this in manga. It’s a combination of the !? combo and should enter mainstream usage to reduce ridicule of the !? usage but not reduce the power of the question. Unfortunately, it is so obscure that it, like the “because” mark, it isn’t able to properly display on WordPad (my main typing program)
The asterism – used for subparagraphs, an attention-caller to passages or to separate subchapers in a book. I wouldn’t mind using this. It could be useful in forum posts.
Behold, punctuation for sarcasm… or the snark mark, the latter being more catchy. Regardless of what you decide to call it, it would be a godsend in today’s internet for this marking to become of wide usage. There would be far less misunderstanding, people wouldn’t be seen as idiots, trolling would reach a new level and so much more. I actually used it occasionally but I don’t really know what happened. Maybe we could make a meme or something. Memes tend to catch around better than obscure grammar laws.
In the last few years, I’ve been on a major nostalgia trip through the ’90s. Continue Reading
I think rather lowly of pop culture and fads 1997 and onward and this would apply to Pokemon if I hadn’t kept with it to see what it had become; more than just a fad. From Continue Reading
