    Hopefully because everyone in that story is 14. ...Because I don't want to live in a world where that is a story about adults...

    ...I guess Rassah needed me to actually explain that should bitcoin go DOWN, rather than an employer eating it on wages, they'd have the employee saying 'What you paid me last month is worth half as much this month and I literally can't pay bills unless you give me more, if not, I quit.' But Rassah seems to work under the basis that bitcoin can only go UP in value, period, as an absolute. It's weird. Not to mention, interesting language, ' $1000 in savings did the not average thing and put half of it in bitcoin'. Again, he's only speaking about bitcoin as an INVESTMENT despite sometimes insisting it's a currency. Meanwhile I ONLY spoke of Bitcoin being used as a currency and then utilized in 'everyday banking'. You'd think he'd want to be all OVER saying that bitcoin can be used for everyday banking, huh? Also, I'm always delighted to have him say, directly to me, that he's not reading my posts, in the same post where he is directly responding to me. It just makes him look silly.

    I mean, imagine if people did? About 60% of American's have no more than $1000 in savings. Like, that, at MOST, is their total liquidity without relying on debt. (Though nearly 30% have zero in savings). So with a drop from nearly $20 000 USD to $10000 USD since December, for a a lot of American's, if they had what little savings they had in a bitcoin wallet instead of a USD bank account would have effectively evaporated. (At least in buying power). This would be, without exaggeration, a devastating turn of events for millions of Americans. I mean, Rassah himself said he would NEVER pay a wage for labor in bitcoin unless the contract stipulated highly frequent adjustments of the compensation against the USD or anther currency. This is because it would be exceptionally dangerous to any employer to negotiate one wage and have it worth a radically different value in only weeks or days. The same risk would apply to the every day banking of anyone who used BitCoin wallets in place of bank accounts.

    Nah it all runs better as individual PCs. (And two are 'projects'). Also I have no interest in a 'side gig' cause my time off really needs to be focused on binge watching TV and anime while trying to ignore constant existential dread.

    1) Desktop/Workstation 2) Media Server 3) Livingroom HTPC/Steam Machine (Made from old workstation) 4) Bedroom HTPC /Steam Machine (It's hot pink to match the bedroom decor!) 5) Laptop 6) Small Form Factor ITX PC built out of my old laptop's CPU/RAM/HDDs and other spare parts plus a Silverstone SFF case basically to prove that I could recycle my old laptop into a desktop. ....This machine admittidly has no purpose. 7) Half aseembled rebuild eMachine eMonster 500a from 1999. Basically I've been eBaying 20 year old eMachine parts to make a 'sleeper' build that will have modern components inside. Most of this is a pile of eBayed parts though and a case with an 6 year old motherboard inside it for testing. But once done it'll be cool. This eMachine was the PC I used for the VCD stuff I'm talking bout, also for my AMV editing, and a lot of my exploration of the internet from 2000-2004. So it's nostalgic to me to 'bring it back to life' even if I have no original parts and have to hunt them down on eBay.

    I know, right? I was into the whole (S)VCD basically so I could watch fan subs and stuff on my TV. This was also possible then with a video card capable of TV output but one needed a PC in physical range of a TV, as an older teen that was not within my means. Of course now it's 2018, I have seven computers in a one bedroom apartment and an HDMI cable can link any TV to any PC. With my HTPC setup I have 305 (and growing) different anime series available from the server. Even my physical blurays are easily ripped and stored and accessible without any compromise in how they look. Back in the (S)VCD days I'd literally spend 3 HOURS transcoding just ONE episode of an anime on my Pentium III.

    My first encounter with LAME was as an external MP3/MP2 encoder that I was using with Tsunami MPEG encoder waaaaaay back then when I'd convert pirated anime to Video CD and Super Video CD for playback on my DVD player. (DVDRW drives would not affordable for a few more years). The audio encoder in TMPGEnc did a bad job converting from 48khz to 44.1khz to meet the (S)VCD standards so it'd cause a tinny effect until I started using LAME. Mmm, nostalgia for old anime piracy. :3 Of course, now it's 2018 and I have a 58TB media server and instead of burning anime to disc, I buy anime on disc and rip the discs to store on a hard drive. So, let's talk about what really matters in this Canada KFC Bitcoin issue: ...MOST KFCS IN CANADA DON"T DO MASHED POTATOES SO WHY THE HELL AREN'T YOU ORDERING FROM POPEYE'S INSTEAD!?

    It wasn't even a joke. I was literally like 'Oh wow I haven't heard any bring up LAME in a while!' for like half a second. >_>

    Pffft, is it lame that I can't see that word written in all caps without reading it as 'LAME Ain't an MP3 Encoder'? I think not.

    I'm not sure what's worse Toshabi; The possibility that you took my satirical post of being 'The Most Successful Millennial In The Universe' for the pedestrian accomplishment of having paid off my student loans as serious... Or that you may seriously view paying off one's student loans as a 'big deal' at all. ...Though the later would underline the uncomfortably bad financial positions that many millennials find themselves to be in...

    He's doing the thing where he's trying desperately trying to look like a 'big deal' on a non-name furry forum with a declining user base again...

    There's a 'Scotts Chicken Villa' joke here but there's not enough Canadians here to even get it, so why bother?

    I like this Bitcoin conference stopping accepting bitcoin better. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/10/bitcoin-conference-stops-accepting-cryptocurrency-payments.html

    Rassah said he was done with this because we are 'Spoiled' and then comes right back to talk weirdly brag about the money he's spending on 'Business Coaching' sessions... I just love this.
