Bitcoin's Software Gets Security Fixes, New Features

tehlinux Re:What? (173 comments)

I’ve been sticking $30 dollars in pennies up my ass for the past 11 years! That’s 3,000 pennies a day; 21,000 pennies a week; 1,092,000 pennies a year! To date that’s 12,012,000 pennies, 8 times the population of Nebraska. Those pennies have been in my ass! You think you’re better than me? Oh, you’re not better than me. You handle my ass pennies everyday. You pick up my ass pennies for good luck. You throw my ass pennies in fountains and make wishes on them. You give my ass pennies to your little daughter to buy gumballs with.

tehlinux Re:Only need to know... (151 comments)

PS4 will use Gaikai to provide cloud streaming bullshit for backwards compatibility.
