  1. Another one bytes the dust

    Depending on the crypto coin he was mining. We are talking about 11K a year. without taking into account the Electric bill. Please somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
  2. Another one bytes the dust

    Another IT Manager has been arrested for mining bitcoin and litecoin. Note to self: If you do not pay the electric bill, do not mine on any PC. http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/crime/Department-of-Citrus-employee-arrested-when-caught-mining-for-cryptocurrency-agents-say_166345974
  3. So this happend: Linux's creator said he thinks CTS Labs' AMD chip security report "looks more like stock manipulation than a security advisory" and questions an industry. I don't really think CTS has done an impartial job. I really believe that INTEL is behind this "Research paper" if one can call it that way. This is something that the industry has long forgotten. there has to be a spirit of colaboration between all of us.

    It should run with the Windows Native Drivers. Make sure you download the drivers prior the uninstall just for the sake of being quick while troubleshooting. Let me know how it goes.
  6. Fortnite Battle Royale on Mobile

    not only the graphics but the playing experience overall. I think Fortnite is better than Pubg due to the construction mechanics that are not seen in other games. I'm curious on how this experience will translate to the mobile platform.

    No worries thanks for letting me know.
  8. Fortnite Battle Royale on Mobile

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2018/03/13/why-fortnite-on-iosandroid-is-the-most-important-mobile-game-ever/#62ad78544ad6 If Fortnite can translate to mobile completely intact, it's proof that game developers can do much more with mobile games than they're currently shooting for. If nothing else, Fortnite could be an injection of ambition into the mobile game community. More and more AAA console and PC games could start releasing full versions on iOS and Android, with adjustments made only for inputs. The gap in graphics is becoming less and less an issue, so now it's just a matter of install size and gameplay. If Epic can pull this off, they'll showcase Unreal Engine as a game engine capable of running the same game across multiple platforms, which is a pretty great selling point.

    Hold on. on the link you are not listing any Discrete GPU. do you have one? If it is a APU try the following: Uninstall drivers from AMD. (Start -> Type uninstall programs -> Look for the driver and uninstall Re install from AMD website (https://www.amd.com/en/support/apu/amd-ryzen-processors/amd-ryzen-5-processors-radeon-vega-graphics/amd-ryzen-5-2400g) In the catalyst control center look for: Switchable graphics application settings. Choose google chrome (chrome.exe) and force it to use the Vega card you have from the CPU/GPU combo
  10. Coinbase turning over customer Data to IRS

    Makes sense. At the end, it's profit right?
  11. Coinbase turning over customer Data to IRS

    Is there a tax for cryptocurrency? Could this be true? or this is for the BTW, im not from the US, but this sounds a lot like BS to me.
  12. Unreliable source. unsure I can trust this site. Does not seem legit.
  13. Github able to withstand a massive DDoS

    Thanks, just fixed the TBPS to Tbps. Thanks for that correction.
  14. OP: https://www.wired.com/story/github-ddos-memcached/ Using memcached servers, allegedly chinese state sponsored hackers were able to launch a massive DDoS attack to the Github servers for over 1Tbps of load. When github realized this they relay all the traffic to their DDos Mittigation service with Akamai Tech. The whole attack lasted between 15-20 minutes. ThousandEyes was able to determine that the traffic payload was over 1.3 Tbps. Known as an amplification attack, this type of DDoS has shown up before. But as internet service and infrastructure providers have seen memcached DDoS attacks ramp up over the last week or so, they've moved swiftly to implement defenses to block traffic coming from memcached servers. "Large DDoS attacks such as those made possible by abusing memcached are of concern to network operators," says Roland Dobbins, a principal engineer at the DDoS and network-security firm Arbor Networks who has been tracking the memcached attack trend. "Their sheer volume can have a negative impact on the ability of networks to handle customer internet traffic."
