Wow, I could have written that post. I'm not alone!!!
Just for your info, I covered the extra electricity charges for the coming month in under 24 hours.
And there are no ASIC chips for scrypt based mining yet so it's currently GPU mining all the way (to tha moon, lol).
I'm not 100% sure yet, but I also think that due to the very nature of the scrypt algorithm, ASIC mining is unlikely to come soon as it;s really reliant on having a lot of fast memory (Basically, high end video cards). There is one company that claims it's close to making one, but they have not actually shown anyone a working product yet so we'll see.
Yeah I thought I missed the bandwagon, but then I discovered scrypt based coins and it turns out I might just be able to catch the tail end of this ride. My first card I just bought should pay for itself in ~16 days. *IF* that happens, I will be upgrading to a bigger rig.
It's not too late.
Mine for WorldCoin by the way. It's still one of the best longterm options for mining.
I will either be wrong, in which case I have a perfectly sellable graphics card I can move on (Or game with) or I am right and BWUAAHAHAHAAAA
I think that's called win:win
I used to be an Nvidia guy until last week. Just hopped onto the crypto coin mining bandwagon and my new 7950 card should pay for itself in ~2-3 weeks.
Nvidia are junk for this, unfortunately.
And it shows, you try to find a new or 2nd hand 79xx card anywhere for a reasonable price. They have all been snapped up by the miners
Nope, try imagining an ebony bath full of fine dry sand and then video it as the sand drains out. Then play the video backwards and watch the sand filling the bath. Like that, yes.
Arrrgh, this is thoroughly pissing me off too. Do you have any info on the sets you got?
The best I have found so far is the technic lego sets that have 'build 3 models' options. That or the HUGE expensive kits that STILL only build 2...
Drink up, the world's about to end.
'92, weren't they still RWD or something, back when Corollas were cool?
To be clear, my '99 is one of those annoying crapolabox ones that blocks up the roads everywhere you go..
Unless I'm driving it lol...
Poor POS car
Oh and I thought the Corolla would disintegrate, but it made it. All that really happened was 50% wear on a set of brand new front pads that I put on fresh for the day.
Give it an oil change first too
If you have not been on the track, do it - it's a different world.
When I first started racing in ~'95, I already thought of myself as a fairly accomplished driver when it came to car control and picking fast lines. Once I got on the track I learned how wrong I was. You simply can't drive like that on the road unless you are on a closed stage or something. There is always too much to think about, too many compromises to worry about. On the track, you don't have to worry about as much of that and you can concentrate on perfecting the lines and not worrying about getting 'stuck' in a tree (It was this thought that started me out in racing).
Fun innit. I know I stung some egos bad that day.
Had a lot of fun too as it was my first time on the track in about 13 years. People talk about some cars not being fun to drive, I reckon any car can be fun if you try hard enough
You may jest, but I recently took my '99 Corolla (Automatic, on worn out no-name (Wanli) winter tyres) to a track day with Mustangs and was catching up with some of them
Sure, those drivers probably don't know how to drive fast (Everyone has to learn, right!) or were too scared to scratch their precious, but come on, seriously? A Corolla faster than a Mustang? That should not be
Made me chuckle inside at least
And Wensleydale cheese.
Or.. wait a sec, did I sign up for the wrong interplanetary settlement mission? CRAP!!!
Yes. I came here to comment about this
