    so.. i got this theory.. while sitting on the loo.. so dont think i actually believe this, i just found it an interesting 'what if'  
     
    what if the nvidia cryptomining thing isnt nvidia's idea, but a brilliant plot of some board partner?
     
    all the gaming board partners are squealing to get more margin to meet msrp.. what if there's one board partner that spun nvidia a deal:
    ship us a WAY higher allocation, and our crypto mining partner will pay top dollar for each and every one of them.
    they then spin that allocation into mining cards, and ship those straight out to the partner, who has no problem paying top dollar, because these cards literally print money.
     
    this would also mean nvidia's profits from crypto are hugely inflated, because they get a notably higher price per chip from the deal, rather than the razor thin margins on the gaming side.

    i got an android TV stick, that has the following issues:
    - the OS is absolute dog shit garbage piled on a crappy base, no updates, on an android security patch older than the device itself.
    - the remote somehow smells like burn when in use
    - it's struggling with browsing trough the PRELOADED netflix app...
    - they claim that "unlike competition this thing doesnt overheat" as it is steaming off the back of my TV...
    - the included usb power supply claims 5V 2A... but at just 1.5A it goes flinging so far out of spec i'm actually afraid it'll fry shit.
    - the manual is literally a "how to plug this in" card.. AND IT IS FOR THE WRONG DEVICE...
    - didnt include batteries for the remote. literally every freaking piece of technological nonsense includes batteries these days...

    should i bother putting in the work to reconfigure half the server for a vanity folder name? 😛

    the casting is genious... the belgian lunatics are seemingly chosen by thickest dialect, the german captain on a boat of belgian lunatics is an actual german on a set of belgian lunatics (protip for hollywood: this matters...)
    the set is mostly the interior of a german U-boat, for which they actually constructed a steel box that moved and shifted, with the interior of a U-boat.. so most of the displeasedness about their cramped surroundings is real.

    so.. i'm watching a livestreamer assemble the latest and greatest prusa 3D printer...
    it makes me so satisfied with my wanhao...
     
    few downsides of the prusa:
    - it costs €770
    - it comes as a kit, essentially a box of lego, NOTHING comes assembled.
    - there's a lot of plastic in the construction.
    - the builtin controller is stupidly basic
    - hotend is not insulated (that makes a HUGE difference in temperature stability)
    - plastic in the print head construction, right next to before mentioned non-insulated hotend.
     
    few advantages of the prusa:
    - recovery from missed steps on the stepper motors (never had a missed step on my wanhao...)
    - recovery from power loss (appareantly also a feature in the latest wanhao firmware)
    - halts when the fillament runs out
    - comes with a bondtech extruder
    - the printer supports a ruby nozzle, if you want to blow 100 bucks on that..

    so.. been doing some more trailmakers, trying to get to the top of the leaderboard on the "centrifuge" track, in the lowest power category... given this category has about 2000 entries, and the top 20% or so all rely on exploiting edge cases in the physics engine.. i'd dare say this is a pretty good result:

    (in other words, that's traveling around a "bowl" racetrack at close to the sound barrier )
     
    also, at this point i have no idea what those 15 people are doing to get faster than me...
