Microsoft Windows / Re: Windows 7 Component Store Cleanup - Rebase

I stopped updating nvidia driver due to constant stutters/fps drops or even nvidia optimus freezing issue on latest version. I found a ancient version from microsoft update catalog 389.xx which fixed all issues above on 980M. Linux version of 460.x drivers doesn't have this issues.
The optimus driver is not included in this repack.
Here are the settings used:

Tonight, I'm going to follow the annoucement of another confinement in Ile de France (because of the virus) on Youtube.
You can see it here at 7pm (in one hour) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGpGtyJaHS8

To watch this I've prepared some bred with some saucisson.
I like this plate because it belonged to my father. It's almost 30 years old

scarcoins doesn't mean anything. In my opinion it would be interesting to keep Bitcoin in the name. Like New Bitcoin.
Those who are mining bitcoin don't earn money because individuals are now competing against powerful mining rigs that have more computing power. Recently, the mining difficulty rate has skyrocketed. When bitcoin was first launched, the difficulty was 1. As of May 2020, it is more than 16 trillion, it gives you an idea how difficult it is to mine Bitcoins and how unprofitable it is. The idea was to build something profitable. If it is profitable then some individuals will mine it. Actually I doubt I have the skills to do that alone anyway, and I doubt anyone on the forum can do that either.

I like the name, but if you don't we can call it something else. With respect to the present difficulty of mining Bitcoin, it makes perfect sense given the present-day exchange rate. When I upgraded my system just recently, I wanted to upgrade my GTX-970 graphics card to something better. Forget it! The price is extremely high, and this is assuming you can even find a high end graphics card.

If this project is to ever get off the ground, someone would have to write the mining software AND sell the idea of accepting our coins to vendors. Otherwise there's nothing to do, at least not for now.

My older PM 951 256GB TLC had become slow eventhough it had 100% spare cells but it was very slow. I wrote just 28TB of data over 5 yrs which is less than warrantied 3yrs or 35TBW. The new QLC is rated for 100TBW I guess. Nearly filled 60% of the disk with games yesterday and moved them to HDD after a few days.

As you know, an important setting for SSD's is "endurance", measured in TBW. Logic dictates that the larger the drive, the greater the endurance. All the more reason people should get the biggest SSD they can afford and not fill it to the max. My new 1TB Western Digital NVMe is rated at 600TBW. Compare that with 200TBW and 300TBW for 250GB and 500GB respectively. I'm sure this takes into account the fact that all SSD's are overprovisioned. Were it not like that then garbage collection would not be possible when the drive is too full

You Does the PM951 you mentioned still work? Most importantly, did you lose any data?
Yes I get it. Larger is better if you intend to use it heavily.
PM951 costed almost 450$+ in AW India model.  Crucial P1 costs 80$ with taxes. With 2.1GBps reads and 1.7GBps writes (both seq.) and 4k performance around 400-800MBps that hits these rated speeds when my ambients cross 35C is a boon for me. I can have latest Samsung 970/980 Pro that can rarely hit these advertised 4-8GBps at ambients above 35C w/o active cooling.
I've 78GB set as factory over-provision. 150GB is SLC cache size.

No sarcasm. As I recall when you came up with the idea you were looking for a name. 'Scarcoins' sounds ideal. Nobody else has it and it was Scarface's idea. If ever you manage to get this project off the ground, that's the name I vote for.

Well I don't need sarcasm. I never talked about scarcoins.

I think I wanted your help. I'm trying to get my father's estate settled but there are debts and  things don't work out the way I wanted them to.

I don't know of anybody who thinks the money they have is enough. Everyone wants and needs more. All the more reason to follow my advice. To analogize, suppose you decided you could bake and sell pastries. The first thing to do is find out who would buy them and at what price. Without this information you're dead in the water.

Note that if you want to donate 100 bitcoins, my address is 13dxCArrziB7GxatUzNKtds5RR4xa6MSD5

Let's see something. Today's (14/3/2021) conversion rate is 1BTC = USD$60,180.44 or $50,306.09€ (do the math). If I were a fortuneteller with a crystal ball 10 years ago I would have bought the baddest array of video cards to mine the hell out of Bitcoin. Sadly I don't have those abilities.
