Quote from: humbert on December 18, 2021, 02:48 AMWhat I don't understand is who does the manipulating? Are you referring to market forces, more correctly supply and demand? Even so, without some sort of central bank instability is the name of the game. As of today's date Bitcoin is about $45,000. It was over $65,000 a few months ago. People who bought a few Satoshis back then took a serious hit, unless they're doing it to speculate.

I have a geforce gtx 1050, it's not a brand new graphics card, and yet the game could run pretty well.When I had to upgrade my system last year, I also tried to see if I could upgrade my GTX-970 video card. Forget it! Even if you can find more modern graphics card, the price is ludicrous. Give thanks to all those people who still think they can get rich mining Bitcoin. I don't know if it's even worth mining any other cryptocurrency. Who even accepts them?

Quote from: Shadow.97 on December 20, 2021, 05:37 PMDue to the landlord refusing to have a decent heating schedule where I live. And I do not pay for electricity, I ended up using mining as a way to add some euros to "decrease" my rent, and add a constant source of heat. Only way to get "rich" of it is if you actively use the heat it generates instead of "dumb" electric heating elements, meaning that you do not have any other means of heat other than electricity.
Quote from: Shadow.97 on December 20, 2021, 05:37 PMFor example in my parents summer house, they only use electricity to heat it at time of writing. Using mining there would more viable than wasting all the heat without getting anything in return other than heat.
Quote from: humbert on December 21, 2021, 04:06 AMYour parents have a summer house? Where is it located? How is it any different from the regular "winter" house?Hey Shadow: I've asked you this several times but you haven't answered me. In Ireland do they speak English or Gaelic (Irish)? Do you speak Gaelic and, if not, have you had a language problem? Just curious, that's all.
Quote from: humbert on January 29, 2022, 02:19 AMThanks for your response.With respect to the summer house, I looked at 387 96 KÃ¶pingsvik with Google maps and Google street view. From what I'm seeing there's almost nothing there, just narrow roads with very little traffic and very few man-made structures. Why would anybody want to buy a house there? From what I'm seeing it seems to me there's nothing to do and no place to go. Is there even internet and TV service there?
Quote from: humbert on January 29, 2022, 02:19 AMYour explanation of the languages in Ireland is interesting. I looked at the video. This has to be satire. For example, it seems next to impossible that the old man and the Chinese guy are speaking in Gaelic and the bartender thinks it's Chinese. You explained Gaelic is taught as a second language. Even if the bartender is not fluent, at least he can pick up a word or two -- enough to know it's Gaelic. Also, it makes perfect sense that the Chinese dude could be fluent in a major language (English, French, Spanish, German, etc) in 6 months. But Gaelic? How does he practice it when almost nobody even speaks it?
