    Crypto Friend made this Room

    Had to edit since it was 13x1080ti's first shown mining on Windows. Also decided to post on this forum first as this is where I heard about crypto because of F@H and Boinc miners. Some things you see are baby USB Scrypt Asics, Hashaltcoin F1 Mini FPGA's, a few 2990 Threadrippers, a bunch of...

    Crypto Friend made this Room

    I have watched this in the making over the last year. He was the first to show 13x1080ti's could mine in Windows way back on bitcointalk. Slowly amped it up to run masternodes, which turned into buying a blade server and just running a bunch of wild things together in a custom room he built.

    Vox Media Goes After YouTubers That Mocked The Verge PC Build Video

    I hadn't seen this before. So I started watching the linked vimeo video and was curious what the original was about. To my dismay the linked video was the original. At least I got a good laugh out of Lyle's take. Jackson Pollack painting thermal paste application.

    Panel Makers to Shift Focus to 8K LCD in 2019

    When I got my 4k 40" monitor, I remember thinking, I cannot wait for 8k monitors. Surprised there aren't more people mentioning productivity of a PC and a high res huge monitor. Learning to code, but I work on plans for my business and this is probably very close to working on 1:1 plotted plans...

    Not on 18.04 because the crypto thing uses 16.04 for now. Too lazy to figure out how to compile on 18. For now I am just sshing into the desktop.

    Just put together a 2950 with 96gb of ram, loving this thing. Its doing some crypto chores, but thinking of running some BOINC in the background. As an ubuntu 16.04 newb, how hard is BOINC to setup and use just some cores?

    Samsung Pours Out Galaxy S8 Information

    After switching from Samsung to a Pixel, would never go back to a Samsung phone. Found no reason to root/custom rom the Pixel as it actually works out of the box compared to the garbage Samsung lays on top of android.

    CORSAIR Unveils Its Fastest Ever SSD Range

    Is there any reason that there aren't more m.2 ports on a motherboard? Just upgraded to an Asus z170a and love how easy it is to put the OS drive on the motherboard. Hopefully in the near future SSD's can be stacked on the MB like ram. Somthing like 4 500GB SSD's on MB, and 1 2TB spinning disk...

    AI Traffic Signals Will Make Driving Less Boring

    Synchro and simtraffic are much more complex than that cheesey video of a few one way streets with no pedestrian traffic. Traffic signals could probably be timed purely on iOS and Android phone GPS signals at this point, but its still complicated.

    Sharp Unveils Prototype 27-Inch 8K IPS 326 PPI Display

    When I got my 40" 4k 60hz monitor I was excited for the 8k future. People who draft plans get a lot of benefit from this. I imagine actual work being done, can get quite a boost from these. 50"-60" 8k? Will be an early adopter again.

    How To Send An E-Mail In 1984

    I am the same age, Orgeon Trail Gen. Had an Apple IIC to start my computer adventures. First email address was through a BBS. That was a really fun time period as you couldn't really talk to many people about computer anything. One of the people I ended up meeting in HS, was taking over one of...

    Is Amazon Prime Really Worth it?

    I don't know about that. There was a deal on 5qts of pennzoil synthetic oil for $15 shipped. I don't remember seeing synthetic priced so low for years. Just bought 2 windshield wiper blades for cheaper than the store too. There is quite a bit stuff that ends up being cheaper with Prime...

    How To Block Windows 10 Upgrades

    What was the equivalent to the SP3 by Apple and why was it better? My Lenovo laptop just bit the dust and need to upgrade. The SP3 looks to be similarly priced to a Macbook Pro 15" which we recently got. But I need Windows on either to run some older engineering software. Windows 10 has been...

    Apple Shares Drop Below $100 For First Time Since August

    Not a fan of Apple but can see why people like their stuff. I still remember when Apple was not doing so well when they let Jobs go. Whenever the real crash happens a lot of these overvalued companies won't be around. Apple is smart sitting on a bunch of cash. I would think FB and AMZN go first...

    PrimeGrid - Makar Sankranti Challenge (1 of 9 in the challenge series)

    I am noticing that my points are way down when I switched to just the GFN stuff. Does this give less points than PPS Sieve? Currently BOINC says Running (0.116 CPU's and 1 NVIDIA GPU).

    Report: Galaxy S7 Will Cost More Because It Has An Iris Scanner

    And yet PC's are still moving forward, and mobile feels dead. I am surprised I am ready to upgrade my PC, yet have no reason to update the phones or tablets. I have quite a bit of year end money to spend and won't. I think you may be on to something since my microwave is newer than my phone...

    Report: Galaxy S7 Will Cost More Because It Has An Iris Scanner

    Report: Galaxy S7 Will Cost More Because It Has An Iris Scanner

    Didn't go from an S5 to S6 because of the SD slot. I don't want an iris scanner, but would like that SD card slot. $700 starts to get up there for 2-year throw away tech. And why can XDA peple debloat the Android OS while Samsung releases a bloated OS? Can't wait for phones to have pin pricks...

    Destroying A Hard Drive Permanently

    Just saw a German movie called Who am I and it appeared they used something like acid to dissolve the hard drive to cover their tracks. What if you just took the HD apart and threw pieces into different dumpsters? Or can a loose platter still have info pulled from it?

    Seagate: Hard Disk Drives Set To Stay Relevant For 20 Years
