Well, finally got cvlc casting to the Chromecast in the living room. Here's the alias in case anyone's interested:

`alias vlcast='cvlc --extraintf ncurses --demux-filter=demux_chromecast --sout=""'`

`vlcast --sout-chromecast-ip <chromecast ip> <file>`

...VLC wasn't built with protobuf, and that's why Chromecast support isn't working on it on here

I ❤️ the way the profile directory on 2.7 requires people to opt-in, so people aren't just thrown in a public listing if they don't want to be (unlike some services *coughfacebookcough*)

As mentioned in a reply on Twitter, this winds up being a terrible experience for anyone using screen readers.

"The bad part here is that these kinds of bold/italics are incomprehensible to screen readers, since those are math symbols not letters."

Here's a link to the video they mention:

Oh, and:

I really want an extension that converts markdown to Unicode in text fields so I can have things like:
• 𝗯𝗼𝗹𝗱 𝘁𝗲𝘅𝘁
• 𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘻𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘦𝘹𝘵
• 𝙗𝙤𝙡𝙙 𝙞𝙩𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙯𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙚𝙭𝙩
• bulleted lists
   • nested bullets

So I've mostly played Smash casually but I think recent events have shook the community with new tech and the tiers are shaping up a little differently.

Now this isn't definitive, as the meta is constantly shifting, I might be wrong on some chars but the potential is there.
