Are you doing this just to waste other peoples' time?
I suppose, this far along, you can level a "wasting time" allegation. This is as laughable as the rest of your arguments. This is a mutual entertainment venue, and we're all consenting adults. If you're getting cramps in personal locations over anything on Slashdot, it's totally your own fault. There is no "victim" here.
But do stay beautiful, you.
I'm standing by for you, whenever you want to come clean and sober up.
Less snarkily, leadership, in general, is not about finger-pointing.
Believe it or not, there is plenty of finger pointing coming from both parties in DC. Your party is not by any means above it.
Indeed, that was my point, though the GOP is no more "my" party than the Dhimmicrats are yours.
I wish you actually presented an argument there, instead of just more snarkiness. I would love to actually discuss this matter with you but that statement does not indicate any interest from you to do so.
Seriously: it's all fiat money, and there is shag-all substantial economic basis for much of anything going on right now, in terms of monetary or fiscal policy. Question stands: WHY NOT just make us all millionaires?
You certainly haven't yet countered by demonstrating knowledge.
I shoot your third-grade arguments back to you, in kind, as I have time and inclination. Was there something else occurring here?
For Bitcoin, ASIC is the only way to go, but most of the interesting alternative coins are designed to be hard or impossible to build ASIC miners for. (They're also designed to be GPU-miner-hostile, but some of those have been worked around.) One of the tradeoffs with that is that CPU-only mining is botnet-friendly; it's harder to abuse botnet machines' GPUs (especially in cloud servers or routers that don't have GPUs.)
I avoid the whole problem by mining Dogecoin; it's close enough to no value that it's seldom worth stealing (though there was a botnet in the news recently that actually got $200K from mining it.)
No, generally a router has an inside and an outside, and sometimes a third port as a DMZ; you're thinking of a router with an ethernet hub attached, like many home routers. There are routers with more routed ports, and there are one-armed routers also, though that's less likely to be useful.
It's $35 plus shipping for the development board with the module soldered on it, so it's about the same as an Arduino; the $89 price was for two of them plus accessories like cables and power supplies. They're asking for not very much money to finish their software development, and the real question is whether their software is any good.
Sure, if you're just routing, and don't want to connect to various hardware I/O things, you can get a simpler board. But if you want to talk to sensors or build yourself a toaster controller or weather station or add lots of blinky lights or whatever, they're useful.
