Small YouTube Channels Didn’t Cause The Adpocalypse

We’re going to step back just a tad to 2017 and the event on YouTube known as the “Adpocalypse.” The Adpocalypse was a major slashing in income earned on YouTube from advertising, due to multiple factors, the greatest of which being ads simply not being run on certain videos deemed unsuitable, due to reasons we …

Oh, look, it’s February 14th, Valentines Day. Hooray, or not, depending on who you are – you may love the day, or may not care much for it. In whatever case, I felt like it might be fun to share every Valentines Day Special video that one of my favorite YouTubers, Ashens, has done! In …

What’s My Issue With SpaceX? – The Complete Story

flordia,

I don’t hide my opinions. Hell, that’s what this site is based upon heavily – my thoughts and opinions on a wide variety of subjects, both historic and topical. Something I have incredibly strong opinions about is the subject of space and rocketry, and of course a major player in the field, the company run …

Diverse Interests And Opinions

One of the first things someone simply browsing this site would notice is probably a focus on a few very different subjects. While most websites seem to have a single theme about them, Xadara doesn’t. If you haven’t already read the description of the site, Xadara is, after all “a geeky little blog about nothing …

The Good That Will Come From The YouTube Partner Program Changes

Okay, I’ve spent a good bit of time tearing down the YouTube Partner Program changes. I’m not going to lie, I was rather upset by them initially myself – I still think the principle of creating these kinds of limits to people earning any money via Adsense, SuperChat, or any other built into YouTube feature …

Did You Ever Think That Maybe Some YouTube Content Creators Want To Stay “Small Time?”

So, today was the first full day of the fallout from YouTube’s announced changes to their Partner Program – the first day to really see what the internet had to say about it, and honestly, it’s about exactly what I expected. Many people behind relatively small channels of all types are of course objecting to …

YouTube Changes Its Partner Program Requirements – For The Worse

I never did get a chance to write about the “Adpocalypse” of 2017. Super long story cut short, varying incidents with high profile YouTube content creators resulted in many advertisers pulling their advertising from the platform entirely, due to not wanting to be associated with objectionable content creators. It got worse recently when a high …

Space Industry Fanboys, Credibility Claims, And Cherry Picking – Dissecting A Twitter Discussion

Yesterday proved to be a bit interesting for me on Twitter. I was giving my own comments on the Delta IV launch yesterday, one of which was my typical congratulations tweet to United Launch Alliance, the operators of Delta IV, and the CEO of the company,  Tory Bruno. At the end, though, I left a …

The 2018 Plans Of Prince Watercress

Time for something completely different in my “what’s to come” kinds of entries. Instead of talking about my plans, I’m instead going to, by request, discuss what my friend Prince Watercress has planned for 2018. Yes, he actually requested that I write this article to help promote what he does. People who follow what I …

The Commodore 64 Christmas Demo

Ah, the Commodore 64. The best selling computer of all time, one that most anyone involved in the classic gaming scene is aware of, and those into old computers certainly must have at least tried to experience. What a better way to do this holiday than to go back to 1982/1983 and experience the in-store …
