Sadly the main instance of invidious is shutting down. Details here: https://omar.yt/posts/stepping-away-from-open-source

This is misleading. Invidious is not going anywhere. Only one instance.

> Sadly the main instance of invidious is shutting down

I don't necessarily see it as sad that Invidious has outgrown the need for its original flagship instance. It sounds like Omarroth doesn't take as much pleasure in the project now that it has become larger and serves more people, and that's a little sad, but ultimately a mark of some degree of success.

I agree. Grandpa Jones is going nowhere. Now touring Finland, France and Germany:

The main instance hasn't worked well consistently for months. I think most of us were using snopyta already anyway - https://invidious.snopyta.org/

I wish Omar nothing but the best. He's a member here and was discussing invidio.us in the forums here when he first launched it. Some of the members here gave him early funding when he needed a way to pay for the initial server.

The project has been a joy to use, a real game changer. I hope that it continues for many years to come. Or better yet that it's not even necessary this time next year because of the success of competing, decentralized video sharing platforms.

I'm surprised he pronounces his own name LIE-NUS. In his native Swedish it's LEE-NUS (toor-walds).

Listen to a younger Linus Torvalds.

For long I pronounced Linux "LIE-NUX" until I read somewhere that the first syllable was supposed to be pronounced "LEE" in English too. Then I had to learn how to properly pronounce "GNU". Also, kdenlive was not straightforward. I was very surprised by the pronountiation of "GUI" which I thought would read like an acronym.

I am not Linus Benedict Torvalds though. We might as well be talking about GNU/Benedix instead and call him Ben.

If there exists a more native way to pronounce first names (including mine) in a different language, I usually do. It avoids confusing and repetitive discussions about how it reads and writes, etc.

Poor Linux - he didn't know how to pronounce his own name until us Americans taught him all proper-like. Fortunately, we've learned him good.

He says "I'm Lie-nus", and then immediately says "many of you may have seen the so-called Dirk and LEE-nus show". Clearly he wants to be all things to all people.
