  1. Partial US government shutdown

    The partial shutdown has just begun: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-19/watch-live-white-house-holds-emergency-press-conference-shutdown-talks-stall http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-01-20/us-government-in-shutdown-as-funding-deal-fails-senate/9345718 Apparently partial shut downs have happened before. Nonetheless this dramatic scene comes to mind:

    4/10 better story than The Clone Wars.

    On the flip-side whoever bought the bitcoins early and sold around its heights would be much richer ^__^ I suppose in highly unstable countries frequent wage adjustments would be more of a regular occurrence. Not something you'd want to emulate though.
  4. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    Like I said before it's a matter of degree. Most people use bitcoin as a means to get additional sovereign currency from others than use it for everyday purchases/sales Of course one should be careful of ponzies in any currency. Yep and short sellers love bubbles. In either case I abandoned the search yesterday as it's much easier to trade other crap without having to worry if the exchange will actually withdraw the money or misquote the price so you're forced out of a position due to a margin call.

    The forum is dying slowly. Attrition will wear away the active user count until a desiccated corpse remains to be picked over by the crows. Until then we can at least enjoy fine art ;33333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333
  6. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    An unfortunate but common story nowadays, but the early-comers made their money from people such as these so it's all a matter of perspective ^^ That offer already ended on December. Also where were the shorting opportunities for tim bits????? ;V
  7. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    It would be more apt to say that's what bitcoin is ^______________^ Admittedly I was hoping to short bitcoin myself recently but it's been ridiculously difficult to find an exchange that allows for shorting & leveraged trading and that isn't a scam or market maker ;(

    Apart from the laptop those could be combined into one PC. Given your experience you could probably make some money on the side doing PC repairs and custom builds for others.

    @RassahLooks legit.
  10. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    Around that time I was trying to render simple scenes in 3DS Max, now that was a test of patience. Also why seven computers?
  11. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    Thank god it's ridiculously easy nowadays to just connect the PC to the TV rather than have separate players. Also don't have to bother with that "smart" TV nonsense to play stuff. Because Popeye eats spinach silly ;V

    Actually I was talking about the period before the commercial version of the Internet between 1960 - 1989 but a wait-and-see approach makes sense in either case. Frankly I don't think they'll do anything unless a lobbyist or other outside party (bank/s maybe) gets them to. Or perhaps you're posting on multiple furry forums to establish furr-spectrum dominance ;V As for that one person is that me or someone else? ^^ It takes more than having a few million to be the elite that decides macro policies Admittedly a few mil is a start. That explains why I keep getting Ashley talking about Canada, bitcoin and consumerism when I try to encode MP3s. Damn these acronyms.

    Opposites attract, or something. EDIT: thought you said he's pulling on Ashley, my mistake. They do have similarities, but can they overcome their differences in the ultimate struggle for reconciliation? Tune in next time!
  14. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    Provided that you're telling the truth and not just trying to embellish, it comes as little surprise that this bunch of politicians would take the easiest route (doing nothing). It's a bit odd that they compare it to the Internet though as that began with government (in particular the US Department of Defense) and public research institutions researching and expanding on packet-switching networks beginning around the 1960s with the first public commercial use apparently not taking place until 1989. The first conceptualization of the blockchain on the other hand was from an anonymous entity known as "Satoshi Nakamoto". Perhaps they're referring to just what the senators and house politicians were doing at the time, which apparently was taking a hands-off approach while the departments and institutions involved made the decisions themselves. Or perhaps there's more to these furrumz than meets the eye Or maybe he's posting on multiple furry forums, dunno.

    @Rassah @AshleyAshes I find that it's much easier to just look at the overall numbers rather than look for specific instances of one group approving or banning bitcoin. That being said, there's one case which neither of you have reported: when the authorities are on the fence "Banning cryptocurrency exchanges needs more consultations: finance minister" http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/news/2018/01/12/0200000000AEN20180112004300320.html
