    Government regulations often have severe unintended consequences @DrMacintosh. One of them is something called R2 certification. As far as I underatand it, R2 certification was made exclusively to keep large recyclers in business and punish/prevent competition from small recyclers (like CircleTech). Let's elaborate.
     
    Legally, the requirements to start running a computer reselling business is nothing, you can literally start today. The problem is the recycling industry has settled on a certification introduced by the EPA known as R2 introduced in 2008. R2 is not required, but it has become industry standard. R2 certification was made as a way to stop computer recyclers from dumping non-profitable parts like CRT TVs and lead paint in Ghana where it simply pollutes the environment. The problem is the regulations are far too egregious and over-reaching.
     
    R2 certification requires one to have several things included but not limited to:
     
    1. A warehouse to work out of
    2. Inventory software costing thousands of dollars to weigh exactley what comes in and goes out.
    3. Annual random audits of the location.
    4. Proper health and safety compliance for employees.
    5. An annual fee of $1500 a year.
     
    This means that in order to become R2 certified, I effectively have to pay anywhere from $10,000-30,000 a year just to remain complaint with the buearucrats. Then, and ONLY then, can I gain the trust of businesses and they will allow me to accept their computers and parts.
     
    This essentially creates a catch 22 situation where in order to get the R2 certification, you must have a business with a warehouse and employees. Yet in order to gain this certification, one must own a business that is cash flow positive enough to support such infirstructure in the FIRST place. In ogher words, I cannot acquire computer parts unless I am R2 certified  but in order to be R2 certified I need to already have a business making money in computer recycling. WTF!
     
    As a very small reseller such as the operation me and @Crunchy Dragon are running, we cannot afford such regulatuons. Legally, we do not need one to operate, but the industry seems to think otherwise.
     
    I was rejected from a recycler today to buy parts from them because I was not R2 certified. I have a business bank account, a credit card, a space to work out of, business cards, and even an employee. Yet because I do not have this stupid government stamp of approval, many places are turning me down. Not all, but many places are. I will be back to this recycler tomorrow to better explain my case.
     
    Now i'm sure many of you have tried to replicate what I do and have been rejected at every turn for the same reason: you are not R2 or e-stewards certified. Many of you have experienced the same thing as me. You see dozens of computers potentially worth thousands of dollars just thrown away in a landfill for the same reason: you did not spend $30,000 to feed the government buearucrats. 
     
    A license is when the government takes away your right to do something then sells it back to you.

    To everyone wondering why I hate socialist liberals, THIS is why. CircleTech is literally helping the enviornment as a SIDE EFFECT that no other business can: by encouraging to REUSE of products instead of the RECYCLING of parts. The fact that R2 exists just tells me how incredibly corruped and hypocritical the democratic party is. Don't get me wrong, the trump administration has its own problems. But at least they are REDUCING regulations instead of ADDING them. By reducing government regulations, the republicans are actually helping the enviornment in a way no democrat can, by allowing market forces to work their magic and innovate to save the enviornment instead of having a buearucrat do it.
     
    R2 certification was brought in under the obama administration, meanwhile trump has allowed market forces to determine business actions for themselves and the employment market has never looked better. And people wonder why I like trumps fiscal policies? The man himself is another thing, but he has it absolutely right when it comes to business. Businesses should have low easy to understand regulations, low taxes, and as little government involvement as possible. Meanwhile the democrats want to help business by regulating them out of existance. Message to the democrats: if you want to gain the votes of republicans and libertarians, STOP adding regulations and taxes, they have basically ZERO upside. If a business is performing unethically, informed individuals will bankrupt the business by themselves through virtue of not doing business with them. We dont need this government BS to dictate ehat business survives and who doesn't, because markets will take care of this for us.

    A small percentage of Firefox 67 stable will have WebRender enabled. 
    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1526061
     
    WebRender is a complete rewrite of the Gecko renderer service. Right now, browsers (including Chrome, Safari, current Firefox and possibly Edge too) does not use the GPU for the majority of webpage rendering. What they do is render most of the website on the CPU in layers, and then transfer the layers to VRAM where the GPU does compositing (and not much else). 
    WebRender changes that by completely rewriting the renderer from scratch, fully intended to do as much on the GPU as possible. It's been in the works for over 3 years now and even from the get-go it showed very promising results. It's super fast, but more importantly extremely smooth. 
    The problems so far have been lacking support for certain things (like CSS transitions) and some bugs, but now we've reached a point where it's ready for stable release. 
     
    Here is a benchmark from 2016 showing chrome, Safari and Firefox struggling to get 15 fps in a Javascript benchmark. WebRender got stable 60 fps without any hiccups. 
     
    More info here:

    By the way, this is a fantastic article which explains things like draw calls, rasterization, shading and lots of other GPU components in simple and easy to understand terms. Highly recommended that people read it.
