The Peak for Ethereum is coming

Sep 4, 2017 by Paul White

Recently I decided to utilize my workstation's video cards to mine for Ethereum while I am not working and sleeping.  My 2 GTX 1080 running 24/7 should yield me about $100 / month, not taking out electricity cost or wear and tear on my hardware.  But then I started to wonder where will the Peak in Ethereum be?  So I worked the numbers.

Threadripper build parts start to arrive

Aug 11, 2017 by Paul White

My Parts order from New Egg has started to arrive.  I am still waiting on the Case, Motherboard, and Power Supply.  After realising that newegg had taken lots of pre-orders for their ASUS ROG ZENITH motherboard. I decided to cancel my order, and get the MSI board instead.

ASUS ROG ZENITH Extreme sTR4 Motherboard on back order

ASUS ROG ZENITH Extreme sTR4 Motherboard on back order

Aug 10, 2017 by Paul White

I remember when the Ryzen 7 CPUs came out, and how all the higher end motherboards seemed to be on back order for months.  So far everything for my workstation has shipped, even the Threadripper 1950x CPU, but my motherboard is labeled as Pre-Order on newegg's order page.  A little worried as its labeled on Newegg's website as out of stock.

Intel Core i9 vs AMD Threadripper

Jul 18, 2017 by Paul White

Finally AMD and Intel are again competing for consumers business.  Intel has released its Core i9, which was previously its Extreme Edition CPUs, and AMD is about to release Threadripper its scaled out version of Ryzen.  My First generation Intel I7 no longer cuts it, especially after upgrading to windows 10.  Even upgrading the air cooler and overclocking it from 2.6 Ghz to 3.6 Ghz is not enough.  Editing 4K video is near impossible.  So I am ready to build a new workstation.  I have had my eye on the latest from AMD and Intel, and I think I have mde up my mind.

How Tough is the DJI Mavic Pro Drone

Jun 8, 2017 by Paul White

I recently bought a DJI Mavic Pro Drone.  Plan was to use it for Ariel Photography and video for both personal and commercial purposes.  Yesterday I was testing some of the advanced fetures like tracking, and I ended up running my drone into a light pole.  After that all I can say is Mavic Pro is one tough drone.

Nike Air Max 2016 Covered by Warranty

Nike Air Max 2016 Covered by Warranty

Feb 17, 2017 by Paul White

I bought a pair of Nike Air Max 2016 a little under 2 years ago.  They have been great, with the exception of the Fly Wires.  Which seem to have a design flaw, causing them to break.  To me this didn't seem like normal wear and tear, So I did some research and found that Nike does have a warranty on their shoes.

The problem with Liberal ideals on Womens Health Issues

Jan 25, 2017 by Paul White

With Trump now in charge.  Liberals are attacking him from every angle.  One issue that Liberals often bring up is womens access to healthcare.   It would see that when all these liberals were getting their Liberal Arts degrees, a course on economics was never a pre-requisite to graduate.  So let me explain the basics of economics and how it relates to healthcare.
