Hot video games take: while Final Fantasy X's conditional time battle system may have, conceptually, been a reduced version of earlier games' active time battle, they reduced it by removing all of the boring waiting parts and the stress of not making your inputs fast enough when the timers do eventually elapse, so all they removed was the bad parts. CTB is strictly better than ATB as a result.

youtube-dl is one of my favorite pieces of community-maintained open-source software. Despite the name, now works on many sites – youtube, vimeo, even Twitter. You do "youtube-dl URL" and it figures out how to get you a local, offline copy of the video. youtube-dl.org/
