I Got A Vintage 70’s Calculator, And Then It Blew Up!

The Great YouTube Subscriber Purge – Or Was It Just A Glitch?

Many YouTube Content Creators awoke yesterday to find that they had lost many subscribers seemingly overnight. While some larger YouTube channels lost thousands, smaller channels lost maybe 10 – I personally went from 191 to 184, and I was somewhat surprised until I looked on Twitter and saw many others posting about similar losses, which …

YouTube Has Broken Their Subscription Listings. What Else Is New?

When I go on YouTube to watch a video, I expect it to just work. More precisely, I expect the fundamentals to work as they should – I’m able to log in, watch the videos I want to, and go about my day enjoying content. The subscription listing is key to this, since those content …
