Inside BitFury's 20 Megawatt Bitcoin Mine

maliqua Re:Good Thing (152 comments)

how would that work?

Hey look this model of distributed computing that i only got into for personal profits, is pretty clever why don't i do it for free instead.

the problem is the type of people that get heavy into bitcoin mining aren't the kinda that want to give back they're the kind that want to suck every bit of value from something and leave a withered husk for everyone else.

maliqua Re:So it can place parts... (43 comments)

parts are usually bought in reels or on trays so you don't have to prepare them you just buy them in the appropriate packaging

maliqua Re:I hope Noriega wins. (83 comments)

If he was suing EA I'd donate to his legal fund
