    so you have a VW.. I'm gonna say you really should pay the extra money to get a real VCDS cable from Rosstech, it's totally worth it for those cars.

    Summary
    The myth is that if you want a super secure password, you let your cat run over your keyboard. But, in a recent incident, a security flaw was discovered by two harmless kids by simply mashing the keyboard.

    Opportunity cost calculator:

    $120/year factored in as a extra $10/mo in your retirement account for 50 years(600 months) @ approx 8% gain per year:
    $79,317.25
    actual cost: $6000

    a gain of 1221.93%. 

    Imagine the opportunity cost of all the subscription services put together lol

    I took my saab to the mountain, my family's  cabin, a 200km drive, it was so fun to drive. 
    It's quite a bit of snow here but usually its more. 

     

     
    It looks right at home in the snow.

    I just asked for Flyin Miata’s alignment specs, they got pretty close. 
     
    went for a little joyride after through the countryside. Car feels great.

    Today I changed my rear springs on my saab 900, 29 years and about 310 000km they look surprisingly good but they were so very spongey.

     
     
    With the new springs it changed the car, it's obviously to be expected but the change was so great it surprised me. 
     

     
     
    If you have an older car or higher mileage and have the original suspension, change it, it dose not have to be fancy aftermarket things just new stock parts, it makes the car feel so much better.

    For sure cruise whatever of the blue ridge parkway that you can, if it's open. I think there's another parkway that runs into georgia too.
     
    I mean I've averaged a 60mph pace before and can do it with clear traffic on a stretch about an 1.5 hour west of me that they've now dubbed 'the eagle', but the key is that I know the road really well so I know what I'm doing at the different parts. It's short, only about 3 miles so it's not hard to memorize but the flat hairpins are difficult. My very first time up (when I overheated my trans so I had slowed the last couple miles) I had super clear traffic because it was the morning still. I went from the start to the store at the top in like 20 minutes, like a 30-35mph pace which is not terrible for a first timer in a slow car. I was expecting it to be WAY more challenging than it was, the heavy banking made it a fairly easy drive to go fast on, I'm used to here in the midwest the curves being really flat so you have to REALLY REALLY modulate your steering, throttle, and brake inputs to get the car around fast. I did get a lot better at trail braking into corners to go faster on that trip up, it's something I've been trying to work on over the years since I first learned about it and came to understand it. I got my wheels so so so dirty but it was 100% worth it for the experience that I gained. My car was A LOT faster than I thought it would be, even with it's power handicap. Also, I was jamming to this so that really helped to focus me.
     
    Later in the day I was stuck with the group I was with who were running a substantially more leisurely pace. Seeing the scenery was nice, but I really wish some of them had gone a little faster or I could have been up front more. One guy had a 1st gen Celica with period correct suspension and that thing looks WILD in the pictures from the road side, like it's going to jump off the road. Mine looks like it's just parked, barely any indication that I'm hard into a corner except maybe my body lean or the slight lean of the car.

    bcredeur97 got a reaction from Moonzy in Mining Farm with 78 GeForce RTX 3080s Spotted: Capable of Generating $128,088 Per Year   
    + Proof of stake is a thing and is being tested to help reduce the impact (though proof of work is kind of necessary as a starting point). 

    I'm surprised to see people buying GPU's for mining right now with the main source of income (Ethereum) working towards going PoS. 

    The current monetary system uses electricity too. (not in the same way, but it does). I don't have any stats on it though so not sure how it compares. If crypto was fully mainstream, banks as a building (space, electricity, etc.) is kind of unnecessary so that's a way to look at it. How much power do banks use collectively? lol

    That said I'm not sure crypto will be used as everyday currency due to the scaling issues (which they might figure out and maintain security who knows). I feel like it's a commodity like gold, and more for wealth preservation (just is easier to manage than say, moving gold bricks around).

    But not to stray too far from topic, if it's going to be a part of our wealth/monetary systems, then the power usage is justifiable. IF CRYPTO FAILS... then well.. it's a waste. But we are arguably too far in for it to fail at this point.

    I agree with you here. I don’t even have time to watch most of them honestly.
     
    at least post something along with the video to provide some context on what you thought was good in it (most of the time I don’t even care if you spoil it, if it sounds interesting enough I’ll still watch it) 
     
    I am talking to myself here too, I’ve posted a couple vids in here without context as well. Sorry about that.
     
    I think the last one I had posted I thought was actually interesting though and I should have put more context instead of only saying you guys needed to see this.
