in thread I wish YouTube had not removed:

If it went away tomorrow, I would be completely oblivious

I am curious: is that really still true?

    Actually, No. I am now getting some pretty good information from YouTube. Over the last year or so, I have gotten back into embedded programming on Arduino's and RPi. YouTube has been a source of some pretty good information.

    Additionally, I took up bee keeping and YouTube has been damn handy for getting some visuals for becoming familiar with what to look for in bee health and bee keeping in general.

    And I have to admit, I have also seen some pretty interesting projects targeting wind and solar installations. ....and every now and again someone will send me a link to some off-the-wall video that just plain cracks me up....

    So, my statement is no longer true regarding YouTube. I am stubbornly sticking to that opinion regarding televisions though. We have not had a television that does more than act as a 54" monitor in our house in 12 years. More a matter of principle than anything now I guess. I don't even know what is on television anymore except for Fox News...and the only reason I know about that is that when I visit my 83 y/o mom, she is sitting there watching that crap.... simply blows my mind to see what she is watching.... I guess she has earned the right and then some. >

    ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

    A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...
