Re: Thread for new battery breakthrough PR releases

New video that popped up on YouTube, over 1million views, probably take it with a grain of salt as a practical game changer :wink: :lol:

Re: Thread for new battery breakthrough PR releases

YouTube recommended me this video which came out a few weeks ago, has some interesting things I didn't know, for example I thought we never see LFP because they must be kind of crappy but it turns out the real reason is they are patented so they can't be legally sold outside of China. The video is a...

Re: Move to XenForo software

OK.. there is a HUGE rift between the speed of AWS versus the 10th gen core i7 i tested the process on. About 3 times slower.

Re: Thread for new battery breakthrough PR releases

There are now YouTube channels for every major type of tech-porn imaginable. The Elon Musk tech-porn channels where they kind of shave off the reality bits such saying the new Tesla 4680 battery cell has x5 times more energy but forget to mention its x5 bigger is a bit cheeky but I guess that is wha...

Re: Move to XenForo software

You can absolutely do AWS wrong in terms of pricing if you don't know how to turn it's knobs right. I've seen people get into that situation many times. It did actually take me a while to learn how to optimize costs on AWS.. they don't make it very easy to find such things out. Yeah I wondered if t...

Re: Bitcoins

I have been thinking about why some crypto coins are more popular and successful than others. Obviously, BitCoin has remained king for a long time because it has been around the longest. But Etherum isn't that far behind. I think it makes sense that ETH is popular and probably will replace BitCoin b...

I am thinking of buying a 3d printer to try and print my dream mouse shell.

But the smaller mouses almost always have minimal amounts of buttons on them. So ...

20% of all Bitcoin issued has gone missing? This just gets worse and worse. Apparently, if you send bitcoin to a bitcoin address and omit the last character, the bitcoin is sent into oblivion.
