Re: Bitcoins

Saw this article. Guy in Las Vagas bought a stack of the latest NVIDIA RTX 3080 video cards to mine ETH.. I bought an RTX 3080 for gaming, and yeah it was hard to get one as they keep going out of stock, I had to pre-order online and wait 1 month. There was one report from NVIDIA CEO claiming that s...

Re: Great TV Shows!

No cable, no satellite, no 'Mandalorian!' Damn, caught the whole season at relatives last year, if my internet was better I could use my firestick or Roku. I just purchased Roku today, Roku Premiere Streamer $50(cad) and it just links up to the wireless wifi router. Not that impressed with it tbh, ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

When it comes to China vs USA emissions, I think it was a good idea Trump withdrew from the Paris Accords. USA folks haven't really seen the invisible damage that happens when you jump full step into this green energy tax crap, all of a sudden the power bills go up 250%. So if you were someone who r...

This is 3-5 times higher than real costs of utility PV today. If it's all so cheap then it doesn't require any subsidies... and private business should all over it without expecting taxpayer handouts... But fact is they wouldn't touch it without subsidies.
