#109033 Cryptocurrency

Posted by SpleenBeGone on 08 January 2018 - 03:19 PM

Alright, so I'm back into this.

 

For those that don't know, I used to mine bitcoin back when it was literally worthless, and then swapped to Folding@Home because it got my name on a leaderboard and fuck money. Bonus, you can see the exact date I decided to quit my last job. http://folding.stanf...ats/team/216624

 

Now bitcoin is worth some astronomical amount, there are other currencies that are worth mining (sort of) I have free electricity, lots of old hardware, and I think it's a fun hobby. 

 

I'll make another thread soon about what I'm running, profit tracking, installing miners, that sort of thing. This thread is mostly just for the discussion of crypto in general.

 

Also, if I make a site, say spleenmining.com that uses a web browser miner, how many public computers do you guys think you could open it on for me?




#109030 The state of Nerd Forum, 2018

Yeah, it's not going anywhere. The site costs me like $14 a month to run, it's on autopay from my bank account. Even if I die this place will be here for a long time. Yall will just have to deal with the Russian spammers. 

 

I've tinkered with some cryptocurrency stuff at work lately, I'm hoping to do a little write up on that this week and maybe get some more good content on here. 




#109021 The state of Nerd Forum, 2018

So as some of you have probably noticed, I haven't been around much lately. 

Mostly this has just been because of my schedule. I unfortunately don't have the time to run a website like I used to. 

 

I want everyone to know though that the bill will always get paid, and if a post gets reported I get an email notification so I can take care of it right away. Nerd Forum isn't going anywhere, and I hope soon to have the time to dedicate back to it so that we can go back to having an awesome, active forum.

 

 

Side note, in the event of nuclear holocaust, there may be some down time. If that happens, please be patient. It's hard to run new cable while fighting off radioactive zombies.

Look you. It's snowed twice in my life. I'm making up for lost time.

I feel like this is how someone loses a kidney

Ended up breaking the front axle. Twice actually. We fixed it after this video, tried again and snapped something else.

Eh, that's more of a club but I'll allow it.

Would have been a good idea for me too. It was like a Crusades reenactment at my family gathering. Had to take some food back to my house and I was only at the gathering for fifteen minutes.

Were there at least swords and shields? 




#108762 Did the thing

Road trip time. Need to knock on all their doors and find out where they went. 




#108551 I don't even know what to title this

#108550 What the fuck this is still a thing

Posted by SpleenBeGone on 18 October 2017 - 05:39 PM

Yep. We're still around. You don't have to take drugs to get here, it's just suggested.

I really need to make a label for Boo Goo Gone. 




#108537 Halloween '17!!

Posted by SpleenBeGone on 15 October 2017 - 08:34 PM

Middle of the week, probably not going to do anything sadly. Maybe I'll dig out the monkey suite and wear it to work for a bit.

 

 

My group fucking changed the theme on me.

 

"Oh btdubs we're Disney villains now."

 

Well, unless there's a Disney villain who's a fucking FAT NERD, I'M OUT OF GODDAMN LUCK.

 

I am sad and upset.

Turns out, there's a wiki page for that. http://disneyvillain...ry:Fat_Villains
