    I thought I had some converters for B22 to E14, turns out they were E27   - Now have to order some more adaptors and wait until they come on Monday

    Of course, now that I actually decide to try some more PUBG, the servers are "too busy".

    Will I ever get to try the new map, or does PUBG just hate me because it knows I have Fortnite installed?

    Well, I made it.. 2000 GRLC now, most days is now 50+ a day, one day I made 70. Still gonna just hold it in cold storage and hope for the best. Crypto in general isn't doing well right now, so might as well keep mining this instead of changing.

    Fortnite is getting yet another new weapon, following the Heavy Shotgun in the last update: they're calling it the guided missile.
     
    Seems like it could be interesting, although between normal grenades, rocket launchers, and grenade launchers I personally feel like they've got enough explosive armaments to hold over the crowd for a while.

    Looking at the Fractal Design case lineup, gave me an interesting idea.
     
    They should release a new case for the Node line, and have it fit in between the Node 304 and 804. I'd imagine it looking something like this:

    I finally spent some money on some half decent peripherals... yay!
     
    Got a Logitech G502 mouse and a mech keyboard from Aukey... it's surprising good actually, especially for it's low price range of £22. The Aukey stuff I have had in the past, mostly USB stuff, has lasted very well and the few times I had problems they were quick to send me replacements and said to keep or dispose of the problematic devices... so I have confidence that if something does happen it'll get sorted, and if not then Amazon's A-Z guarantee for 3rd party sellers will do it. I went for the non-backlit model, as I don't need that feature really and was almost double the cost for the backlit model. Has Outemu blue switches that are IMO perfectly good enough and for this cheap price is excellent... I have seen non mech Keyboards for much higher and have been crap. In fact I almost bought a logitech cheapo one for more than this. I am pretty pleased with it so far, and hope that as time goes by I continue to be

    No joke, everything looks terrible. Guess that's what you get at 1366x768 with everything as low as it gets. I don't even get 60fps, usually around 25-30.

    Yes, it's not as profitable as other coins right now, but for me it's worth is what it might be in 6-24 months or more even, long term profitability in other words. Remember that ANY pseudo currency, and shares/investments are a gamble.. and that any of them could tank completely or be considered a brilliant investment in years to come. As long as you remember that and only invest your time or money that you can afford to lose, then you can't lose big enough to regret it.
    I personally am investing only my time and electricity cost into this, the hardware used is still there even if the coin implodes... and is easy enough to just set onto another coin to mine some of that instead.

    Only time will tell if it's still smart to mine it, but am happy to continue for another while yet for the £27 or so it costs me in electric to run it each month.

    112 GRLC now, one week on approx... had some downtime, so not fully accurate, and also I increased the hash rate about midway maybe. Will be easier to tell this next coming week for how many coins can be mined each week. Swapping my rig into a mining frame tomorrow should be, if the courier arrives on time... I was going to self build, but have decided this route would be faster overall, and can then take my time on the design for second miner maybe, will build one anyway.
    I still have to build a cover for it though, will be fully dust filter covered when I am done, mostly I had to do this as the room I have it set in, my dog likes to come and sit in, and I don't want hair etc to get in there, make it easier to clean, AND most importantly stop my dog from getting static electric shocks and his tail caught or anything.

    Finally got around to doing a few things today:-
     
    Reworked my main server config, and installed my new HBA SAS card... all going nicely with freeNAS accepting it and finding my ZFS volume etc, no extra work was needed at all
    Made some cabling adjustments also, apart from the breakout cables I mean. It's now much easier to connect/disconnect drives if/when needed.
     
    Put my new Inwin Polaris 2x 120mm fans in my case, in all their RGB goodness, lol... I actually got these for a future build, but decided to use them for now to give my VRMs a bit more cooling at the said of the case... lovely fans to work with, so easy and less cables to hide too. Can't really see the full benefit of them in the case I have right now, so that's why no pics.
     
    Also put some new fans on my rads of the main PC and my mining rig, as the fans that came with the rad/AIO were making a horrible rattling sound every now and then, I think loose bearing or fans blades aren't done well and off balance. Fixed now anyway, so a bit more pleasant for quietness now. The other ones weren't terrible, but I do have OCD and disabilities where I can't ignore stuff how I used to... it was like a low hum/rattle that would barely be noticeable if in a room with other stuff happening, and for a £42 AIO I was happy enough to put up with them for a while... new fans cost me ~£20 for 2, went for corsair SP 120mm and they are very nice.
     
    Reworked a few settings on the miners, now got 5KH/s more with the 1050, and the 1060s each got an extra ~40KH/s, so my mining rig is now ~1020KH/s, and the main pc is 175KH/s for the 1050.
     
    Been a busy boy today, still didn't get to doing my mining rig frame though, weather wasn't good enough to be in the garden with power tools etc... and don't have room otherwise.
