He's from a parallel universe where he married Lois. Clark and a bunch of Smallville folks were possessed by Kryptonian souls stored in some artifact. They all got superpowers & destroyed that planet. He wormholes to the CW verse and tries to prevent it from happening again w/his armor suit & hammer.
@RickBrandon @chris @adam John Henry was also the name of the special "good" prototype terminator in the Sarah Conner Chronicles that terminatrix played by Garbage singer Shirley Manson was teaching to stop a terminator vs terminator faction war in the future. JH named himself after the man vs machine railroad fable.
Those weird UFO stick & circle "drones" being seen at the time were worked into the story as bad faction's agents right B4 show cancelled. Probably the best of that franchise.
@adam I am really looking into this! Living in AZ, I was thinking that using solar panels would provide enough power. Is that what you're going to do or are using? Fascinating!! Thanks for sharing!
This is an S9 14Th/s model which consumes 1273 kWh. Braiins has a great profitability calculator, which I used with the following inputs:
-Electricity cost $0.05 kWh
-+75% difficulty adj per year
-+50% BTC price appreciation per year, which is low based on avg over its lifetime but will vary drastically
-0.2 BTC fees per block avg
-$400 for the machine upfront
Results are for 12 months. Welcome to the mining club, Adam!
My electricity cost is $0.20 / kwh. Isn't the average nearer $0.15 /kwh in the US?
Not certain on the average US kWh cost, I just used 5c as a lowball. Break even on this machine is ~15c kWh which also varies with BTC's difficulty adjustment. Even in Communist Chiraq mine is ~11c.
Although mining, even at a slight loss, is well worth it since you're dollar-cost averaging into KYC-free bitcoin. You can also find commercial power facilities where you can host your machines for cheaper kWh rates, this is what I do since my kWh is high.
At least 2 extra things you need to add into the calculation:
- Savings on exchange fees for DCA'ing over time (e.g. minimum $1 per go on Coinbase)
- Explaining to your wife every month why the electricity bills are so high again (not quantifiable but definitely real)
This guy, Econoalchemist, is a fantastic resource for all things BTC mining. Here's a detailed guide with a section "Procurement" which details how exactly to find ASICs:
A guy on Twitter named Diverter is another great account, he created the infamous (among home miners) Mining for the Streets guide:
@NBS You are a pimp! Everything I found on my own was $5k for the hardware. I had a feeling the right one would look like the old Cyber Direct stuff. NBS++
Don't show Leo LaPorte this, he doesn't understand Crypto and will just assume it's part of your dastardly plan to rule the world.
Check out Will Prowse or Andy's Off Grid Garage on YouTube.
Easy to set up a small Off Grid system to run that 24/7, especially with your knowledge.
All my Sats are Off Grid, Stand Alone Solar powered, does it get any better?
@adam yea I’m at the point that the only thing that makes sense is this is managed collapse/simulated war
@adam Costa Rica has more electricity production than consumption. Looking for miners.https://slashdot.org/story/22/01/12/034220/costa-rica-hydro-plant-revivified-for-crypto-mining
