The free market is the ultimate equalizer: it does not care if you grew up poor, the color of your skin, or by what name you call God.

Absolutely *nothing* beats this train wreck of a support call with from ~10 years ago. Their techs couldn't do 3rd grade and tell the difference between $0.02 and 0.02¢. I kid you not.

I know there is an audio version of the call, which runs some ~30 minutes, but I don't have it handy.

Skipped many of the risks and downsides and didn't talk much about alternatives besides name dropping a few of them.

But now I'm curious, what do you think about stuff like Spritely's Hyptis?

This spritelyproject.org/ and this en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_ex are good starting points, also Chris Webber's latest FOSDEM talk.

BITCOIN: The Future of Finance or Fool’s Gold?

The 1200+ is a modern Amiga motherboard in an A1200 form factor. It requires a handful of custom chips from a donor board to work.

It has lots of cool new features:
* Modern internal PSU
* A CF slot in place of the PCMCIA slot.
* Modern fan headers
* An I²C controller.
* Extra power leads for ClockPort devices.

Please boost. I'm tired of hearing him complain about no available talent.

Does anyone else here like The Sojourn? It's a new science fiction audio drama developed by a prominent YouTuber.

It's an independent series that feels a bit like Mass Effect. It's nice to see something so fresh that isn't just a bad rehash of an existing property.

@profoundlynerdy I don't think the cost would be in terms of energy but rather how much you are willing to fuck up the universe.

@sys64738 What got you into ? If you know any , how does it compare?
