tech gripe, twitch, ads/tracking
A great feature of the Curse desktop app was the ability to manage mods for games like World of Warcraft.
#Twitch bought the app. You already know where this is going.
The app is currently broken on my network: the Pi-Hole blocks a bunch of trackers and Twitch's Electron app chooses to fail rather than gracefully handle the connection error.
I've submitted a support ticket but don't have high hopes. (Had to disable content blocking to get the reCaptcha, too.)
Get yourself a union.
