Another day, another bitcoin scandal.


That has got to be one of the funniest pranks I've ever seen.

A scam?

What did they get scammed out of?

Computer resources?


Electricity (You may not realize this, but computers require electricity to function, which is not, generally, free. They are not powered by the aether) wear and tear on their GPU's from massive overheating (believe mining can, in fact, cause GPU damage if you do not know what you are doing/have old equipment? And given that these aren't people that *KNOWINGLY* signed up for mining)...

The fact that you find this amusing really speaks volumes for how seriously you, well, think bitcoins should be a real currency.

Stephen Hawking's message to Israeli elites: The occupation has a price

That guy should never be allowed in a job near human beings or other animals again.

i am confused, i think these articles are all incomplete, none of them mention the part where theater manager Bob Wilkins was fired?

because i mean surely he was fired for having majestically poor judgment, right, no one would be foolish enough to continue employing him

Quote:
Corrections officials are alerting judges throughout Colorado that errors appear to have resulted in early, improper release dates from prison for hundreds of prisoners they sentenced.
...
The audit still is in the preliminary stages and is not expected to be finished until July. The state has identified 8,415 individuals whose sentences need reviews, with at least 2,500 warranting a more intensive look. About a fifth of the intensive reviews have been completed.

If the current error rate continues, "serious" sentencing flaws could be detected in the cases of more than 1,000 individuals.

The Kepler space telescope, which has spotted thousands of planets circling other suns, just had a second malfunctioning reaction wheel system and now it's unable to remain steadily pointed at a particular part of the sky. Its 7 year world-finding mission is being cut short by nearly half.
