    MrBeast Ranks as Highest-Paid YouTube Star Ever, Earning an Estimated $54 Million in 2021

    I'm still clinging to the hope that one day the lizard people will wake me from the simulation and inform me they were testing to see if living in a world devoid of reason would break my mind, and that I passed with only a few deductions here and there.

    Needing Help Recovering Formatted External BitLocker Partition

    Wise words, and important lesson. I tried a bunch of different recovery software trials and nothing worked, at this point writing it off as a loss. Thankfully anything truly important was backed up in a number of places so I mostly only lost abandoned video editing projects I would "get to one...

    Needing Help Recovering Formatted External BitLocker Partition

    Had a bit of a headache inducing goof last night. One of my desktop's has seen better day, and some of its usb ports seem to fail at random. I had two drives plugged in, a new one and one with a bunch of data on it (both bitlocker encrypted). The computer gave a weird error where it seemed to...

    As [H]ot As They Come: Crypto Rebate All Purchases 50% Ebay, 100% AliExpress

    Far as I can tell, no notable pedigree behind the company. The SG coin itself is just an erc20 token that can be staked on their platform or transferred to an eth wallet. No novel technical utility.

    As [H]ot As They Come: Crypto Rebate All Purchases 50% Ebay, 100% AliExpress

    Back when ebay was 100% match, there was tell going around of a guy who was using it to buy gold bullions and resell, claims he made something like 200k. Definitely took a risk with that one though. As for business model, from what I've found is they're trying to be a staking platform akin to...

    As [H]ot As They Come: Crypto Rebate All Purchases 50% Ebay, 100% AliExpress

    It's been *slightly* bullish the last month and withstood the crash two days ago quite well, but yes probably not a good long term hodl and should be swapped as soon as the transaction settles (not investment advice), I used uniswap myself to liquidate it. Definitely play it safe since the...

    As [H]ot As They Come: Crypto Rebate All Purchases 50% Ebay, 100% AliExpress

    https://socialgood.inc/ In a (likely short lived) killer deal, this app will give you a 50% rebate on all ebay purchases and 100% on all aliexpress purchases made through the app, paid in the form of the platform SG crypto of equal fiat value. Once everything clears you can move the crypto to...

    Your daily reminder to not trust "Free" games from the interwebs

    Please. Playing pirated games is a lot like picking up that lonely bar slag at 2am. Most of us have done it (though many won't admit it). It saved us a good 50-60$ in drinks that otherwise would have needed to woo her. If you squint a bit she seems more or less like the the more expensive...

    FBI supposedly finds flaw with Bitcoin wallet encryptions

    The keys are stored offline, but the crypto itself stays on the blockchain and could theoretically be tapped into from any location with the correct keys. That said, this is 100% FUD meant to scare people that don't understand how encryption protocols work. Any security concerns would be with...

    WTB: Inexpensive Nvidia GPU

    PM'd my friend, that would be amazing! Don't want to leave you hanging with nothing though, maybe I have something handy/cool that you can use lying around, just to make it worth your time.

    WTB: Inexpensive Nvidia GPU

    I'll check the outputs of it (know the brand?) to see if it'll work. Problem is that it will be used with a 4k display at some times, and a 1440 120hz at others, so HDMI 2.0 alone does not suffice. Might "work" but I don't really know anything about that line so I'd prefer to stick with what I...

    Question about Deleted Data Security of Different Drives

    Thanks for the info. Regarding "secure wipe", what would qualify? So attached are the examples of options CCleaner offers, not sure if those would count. DBAN (also attached) has a handful of methods too. I'm not too worried, but building a computer for an older lady using a platter I had lying...

    Question about Deleted Data Security of Different Drives

    Digging around on google is turning up conflicting results, so I wanted to pick your guys minds. Basically, I'm curious of reasonable ways to securely erase drives so that if I were to say sell or give away such drive, I don't have to worry about some clever fella digging up financial details or...

    Don't Make 'em Like they Used To: Display Audio?

    So I've tried running through 3 different monitors recently. An ultrawide monoprice brand, and 4k Asus and a 4k Benq. Problem with all of them is the audio out is really quiet. I have audio source maxed, set volume at max in the monitor settings and run them to my speakers and it is super quiet...

    Ubisoft’s CCO resigns in wake of sweeping allegations
