If anyone is curious to learn more about this comment, here is a fairly recent podcast I found pretty educational, featuring Lyn herself. Timestamped below to jump to (imo) the best part of the session, between Lyn's info and Anita's experiences in Zimbabwe, from the time stamp onwards it's very interesting listening. https://www.youtube.com/live/vWXihExEGRs?si=M3HP69kxkFXDXNHv&t=4522
You can buy an HP EliteDesk Mini for dirt cheap. Plenty powerful to run a node at a fraction of the cost of any of those solutions. I know you have a DIY section on the site you linked, this is just info for anyone considering purchasing a retail node
because you lack reading comprehension. My comparison is BTC is far more decentralized than anything else human made. Could mean everything else is terribly centralized and BTC is comparably way better even if it’s not perfect (because I’ve worked with MSFT Azure, AWS, Apple, VMware, Intel, AMD, Dell, HP and I’m beholden to whatever they decide is best for their stockholders or their admin lets something through or their DNS breaks and everything is borked).
Use a mini pc, HP mini, Lenovo Tiny, Dell mini etc then install something like Start9’s StartOS It’s super easy and those systems are cheap. 2TB NVME drive, 8Gb+ of ram and you are away. Not only is it a full node it also handles lightning wallets, full private Mempool block explorer as well as much more.
You can do a lot with a little passion. I used to build bots for MMOs. You want the ends you will learn the means. I didn't know anything about coding but learned it and my bot would target a specific color (only found on the HP pot) when my HP hit a certain threshold. I was only like 13 too lol.
Interesting idea, but I am not sure it is fair. I could compare car price in terms of HP between now and 50 years ago, and conclude the price has stayed the same, but that is not a fair comparison since 50 year old cars cannot be allowed on the road anymore.
I agree that Eth has a future, however, I’m very bearish on ETH value. If you are old enough to remember the dot com crash you will see parallels. With the any new life/world altering tech comes bubbles and overvaluation. ETH’s value along with ETH based altcoins are mostly FOMO driven for now. What are you investing in exactly? What is that real value? Can it be easily replaced by another superior technology? Does it’s value have a correlation with revenue and profit (basically have you seen the financials? P&L? Or is the valuation driven by sentiment? Hopes and dreams? Fear of missing out? Bingo. ETH has value because people want it to be the next BItcoin…they invest because they hope for similar results. But that value is not really based on reality or sound research. Most if of these alt coins will fail. Most are seriously overvalued. Dot coms that busted most of the companies were overvalued because of the emerging internet market. People invest because they hoped it would be the next HP or dell. ‘One-product companies’ popping up with billion dollar valuations. PALM? However. The true value of ETH will be the future of most everything we do in life will revolve in some form on an Etherium blockchain. Most notable will be decentralized finance but more around the tokenization of equities…stocks and sale of debt bonds, IPO’s…will be on a blockchain. Investments will be on the blockchain. Your mortgage. Your payments. Blockchain and AI tech will transform how we do everything. So why am I bearish? Because most of you see the value compared to Bitcoin and not the value of Eth as a real investment. FOMO driven value should always be bearish for a good investor. Too many treat crypto as a religion. Bitcoin is the only true king of kings for value and wealth. Why? Because it’s value is decentralized…it’s like having a digital vault of gold. When fiat collapses do you want ETH or BTC?
I run a node on an 11 year old HP laptop. This thing is super beat up, but it still runs super smooth. How beat up? The battery is dead, so I removed it. The dedicated graphics card died 4 years ago, so now it runs on the integrated Intel graphics card, which is crap. The HDD died a few years ago so I replaced it with an SSD. The fans don't work so well anymore, even though I open and dust the components off every year or so. Even with all that, it has been running Bitcoind over Ubuntu 24/7 365 for 2+ years now without a problem, even during summer months while getting 100+ incoming connections. TLDR: Any old laptop will do.
The NFT tiers are common, uncommon, rare, epic and legendary. Each tier you move up will have slightly higher stats for attack and HP etc but this effect hasn’t been implemented yet. Hopefully it is on track to be implemented before the tournament starts.
It seems though that Shib has been crawling towards useful recently. I like their partnership with HP to 3D print on demand physical NFTs. Their metaverse doesn't seem half bad either. Far away from perfect but...one can dream lol
$250? No. Save your money and buy a sub-$100 micro server from Dell/HP/Lenovo on ebay, then follow any of the available bitcoin node tutorials to setup, sync, then forget about it (e.g. Umbrel). Also, not free. Not expensive either - pay for the electricity your node consumes (15-30W).
This was an HP ProDesk mini 600 G2 with a 6500T CPU; I assume most of the other brands will have similar power usage. [ServeTheHome has pretty good reviews](https://www.servethehome.com/tag/tinyminimicro/) of various different models, though mostly higher end, for use as home servers. I measured this on a cheap power meter so not sure how accurate, but got 5.7W for that machine idle running linux and network plugged in. Actually the [ServeTheHome review](https://www.servethehome.com/hp-elitedesk-800-g2-mini-project-tinyminimicro-ce-review/3/) of a similar HP with 6500T says they saw 11W idle but maybe they had a different setup, or maybe I just got a good one, not sure.
What's funny is that everyone who was incorrect went on to be "scholarly figures" in society even though they arguably don't deserve it. It appears to be famous or appear as an intellect you simply need to be confidently wrong. I guess it works for ChatGPT. But thought some would be interested in the careers of those who made these bad predictions. The internet is doomed to fail - https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=U-2dYaQAAAAJ&hl=en "Internet may be a passing fad" - https://en.everybodywiki.com/James_Chapman_(journalist) "Internet Collapse predicted" - unknown.....cites Bob Metcalf, who invented Ethernet (3com) who later ended up being suck ass as TCP/IP and routing protocols developed.....sold out to HP eventually.

Gringotts high security vaults were robbed by teens. The only place safer than Gringotts was robbed by 11 year olds. HP proved that there is no perfect solution, but the best way is distributed horcruxes. At least that required the likes of Dumbledore to hack.
Probably in the EU probably not in the US, however class actions are a thing, I doubt enough people are affected though. The masses typically keep their crypto on an exchange.. Just look at HP bricking printers for using "counterfeit" inks. Backlash, but no recourse.
It's still there, unless you live in the UK In 2021, a default judgment was awarded in favor of the serial fraudster Craig Wright who falsely claims the copyright to the Bitcoin white paper, and maliciously demanded that the Bitcoin white paper be removed from bitcoin.org https://0x0.st/HP5i.pdf
Ha! This is simple Yu-Gi-Oh! I love it! Very nicely done! When is the second set releasing? 1 thing to note is that Nano looks pretty OP. Many farmers have less than 5 HP, won't that be too strong? (Sorry if there are cards that counter it, I haven't read them all!).
Fiat Automobiles S.p.A. (UK: /ˈfiːət, -æt/ FEE-ət, -at, US: /-ɑːt/ -aht, Italian: [ˈfiːat]; originally FIAT, Italian: Fabbrica Italiana Automobili di Torino, lit. 'Italian Automobiles Factory of Turin') is an Italian automobile manufacturer, formerly part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and since 2021 a subsidiary of Stellantis through its Italian division Stellantis Italy. Fiat Automobiles was formed in January 2007 when Fiat S.p.A. reorganized its automobile business, and traces its history back to 1899 when the first Fiat automobile, the Fiat 4 HP, was produced. You're welcome
I have an older HP laptop that seems like it’ll work fine, but takes 20 minutes to finish booting and logging in before giving slowly loading internet browser screens for any attempt to browse the internet - it eventually makes you close the computer out of sheer boredom while waiting. I’d be willing to give it up if it will help limit SBF’s capacity and cause him frustration in any way.
10% APR for HP loans in the UK is totally standard across the board right now to be honest. 420d M Sport for your curiosity 😂 no Lamborghini for me but a well needed upgrade from my 1L VW Up considering I’ve done 1400 miles for work this month 😂
don't get me started on printer ink It's all a scam. HP, Epson printer ink doesn't even last me 200 pages, expires, won't let me use a replacement cartridge, won't print black and white if cyan ink is low. WTF, fuck all printers HP, Epson, especially FED printer
I have to say my biggest L is still going and might get worse. Imagine it’s just before peak 2021 bull. I’m relatively new to the crypto scene (socially speaking) and I’ve been investing and DYORing around but I’m getting bored. Watching charts is fun and all but I need social interaction. I start here on Reddit and then get into twitter to expand my horizons and see who I can get along with and learn from. Eventually I end up on telegram via some new discord “friends” (hindsight red flag I know). I’m big into gaming and really like the idea of blockchain games so I fall into a group of folks who are building a new game and need testers. They’re paying 0.5 ETH for a written summary/review of their game to be published. If it already sounds too good to be true it is, but this group has already gifted me 0.25 ETH in a discord giveaway so I felt like they were good and genuine people. Naively, I accept the task and hand over an email address (created a one off account for it) so they can send me a rough demo of the game to play. I have a little bit of wit and common sense so I go to the public library to open my email and check out this game. Brilliant, right? No risk to me. Wrong. Entirely. Turns out public computers won’t let me download anything from email. Fair enough. It’s been about 2 days since I got them email and no one is asking me about feedback or pressuring me to do anything. Just regular chats going on as usual. Email looks harmless enough and the game file attachment scans OK on the virus/malware checkers on the public computer. It’s a dead end but I feel a bit better. Still cautious, I go back home and boot up an old laptop from college. It’s a HP that’s been well used but can run a low end game no problem. I wiped this laptop to factory a few years ago when I was going to sell it but just never got around to it. I open the email and start downloading the game. Nothing bad is happening so it feels OK to proceed until I get a message on telegram right as it starts installing. It’s from the one developer. He’s always been in the background and I’ve never talked to him before but he asks me if I’ve played the game yet? Timing seemed odd and really struck me as coincidence that he asked right as it was installing. I say no not yet, I haven’t played and he goes offline. I try to boot the game from the installer but it keeps failing. Error of some kind I don’t know how to resolve. I try reinstalling once more and it goes nowhere. Black screen comes up and now my laptop is frozen. Blue screen. I get sketched out and try to restart it. It’s going into recovery mode. I let it do it’s thing and finally I am back at my desktop. I’m now panicking so I delete the game and factory reset again. Remove the email. Deactivate my email address. I think, wow, bullet dodged on whatever that was. Let’s check in the discord and telegram group. Discord in entirely gone. The only thing that remains in the telegram group is a single user. He’s got my real first name and last name as his user name. It’s too coincidental. My name is too unique to be by chance. I immediately leave and close out my telegram account. I got afraid. Real afraid. I took a hammer to my laptop and lit it on fire in the backyard. What did this accomplish? Probably nothing but it felt like it was something in the moment. The damage is already done. This was over a year ago and I have been so vigilant to protect myself since. I honestly don’t know what will happen but suspect I will not be in a good place. The only upside is I still have that 0.25 ETH. If you read this far then I urge you to not make the same mistakes as me.
It is way too over-expensive for a node. Buy a used HP elitedesk which has an intel i5 6th or 7th generation processor with 16 GB RAM for 220$. You can also create a Raid 1 disk array setup in elitedesk. Install Ubuntu on this machine, and then to install Umbrel is just 1 line of code. The initial block download on Raspberry pi4 generally takes 5-7 days, on a i5 6500T, i had IBD in 40 hrs or so.
It has to start somewhere, right? Since my post, HP fees already increased 150%. [https://twitter.com/vinibarbosabr/status/1633600763451637761](https://twitter.com/vinibarbosabr/status/1633600763451637761) It looks like a start for me.
