Today in Hoffman Lenses:
Today in Youtube's joke of a fair-use appeal process
The thing I pasted says:
DNA Lounge is a concert venue. This video contains extremely brief clips from videos of bands who are booked to perform live at this venue in the coming weeks.
These bands are putting on live shows on our stage. We are using these videos to get people to show up and pay money to the bands who made them.
This is literally why music videos were invented.
This is the 27th time I have submitted this same dispute, with no response. Apparently your robots are going to do this every single time I post a video. That's fabulous.
And then one or two of the three claimants autoresponds, "After reviewing [sic] your dispute, SME has decided that their copyright claim is still valid" and I have to log back in and do a similar but ever-so-slightly different dance.
Some stupid things about macOS that I learned today
- If you have two external drives, you can make them be a Spanned Volume or a JBOD RAID -- but then you can't encrypt the file system.
- If you want to use Time Machine to put some folders on Backup-A and some on Backup-B -- you can't. There's one global set of Time Machine rules.
