  • Blockchain mining has made it impossible to buy video cards for video, so what if they instead used hard drives?

    Yep, storage market is fucked. (New Scientist)

    Drives haven't disappeared, but bargains on large hard drives that were commonplace six months ago are gone, and supply is patchy generally.

    I got myself a new 6TB drive (Toshiba Gold) last month to replace a failing unit in my NAS, because I knew this was coming. That drive is still available - but I'd now have to order it in from Amazon UK, because there's zero stock in Australia, even at double the price I paid.

    The people behind Chia say that this will be a good thing in the long run as drive makers ramp up production, to which I counter, fuck you you fucking fucks.

Anime of the day is Trigun, a 26 episode TV series from 1998 that sadly has spawned no sequels shut up the movie doesn't exist.

The series follows the story of two claims adjusters, "Derringer" Meryl Stryfe and "Stungun" Milly Thompson, who are out to stop the depredations of Vash the Stampede before he bankrupts the insurance company they work for. I wonder how they would have dealt with Kei and Yuri.

Something Worse Than a Four-Year-Old RX 580 Full of Dust Video of the Day

Yeah, I need to clean out my PCs. I got a couple of cans of compressed air but haven't had the time to actually apply them. 110C does seem a little excessive.

Substitute Anime Music Video of the Day

Ah, says Pixy, I'll include that AMV, because while Konosuba might be trash that's a problem with the story and not the artwork, and I can introduce more readers to Saint Motel.

Nope, says YouTube. Age Restricted for Anime Boobs.

Well, instead, here's The World God Only Knows.

And Saint Motel's original video for My Type.
