OH WOW! Have I shoehorned my INCREDIBLY BORING story about how I met James Corden at the Greggs at Chievely services on the M4 into this thread yet? Of course I have because that's LITERALLY the most interesting thing about me.

PLEASE TELL ME (and James Corden) TO EAT SHIT

If you let your gaming pc blast away 24/7 mining coins would it even recoup the cost of the power?

yes, probably (depending on your electricity rate). but if you are running electric heating anyway he's not wrong in saying it's exactly the same quantity of watts.

I am unsuprised there was a backlash, ecologically minded viewers hate the green implications, gamers hate GPUs being used for something other than processing graphics and miners don't want the competition.

No, seriously... what kurds?!

Considering how large the fanbase of LTT is, if you're going to mobilize a significant part of it to run that stupid miner, it'll be akin to a commercial operation in environmental impact.

Didn't he say/imply he has gently caress-you money by now? How desperate do you have to be for more to take money from the "industry" directly destroying the hobby (not to mention the planet) his whole business community was built around.

Yes and you'll actually make a lot of money unless you're in germany or something. Like you could live off it of you had a couple of good cards.

I think a lot of his income is from shilling for things via sponsored videos like this. He just timed this one poorly.

did you not see where he just spent $70k commissioning a completely useless solid gold xbox controller? and is gonna keep it in his office rather than melt it back down, probably so he can jerk himself over it?

he has gently caress-you money. he needs more money so he can continue to waste it on more gently caress-you projects.

Well the timing is definitely not an accident, NH are throwing money around right now exactly because mining is super profitable at the moment and they're skimming off the top. He knows gamers can't buy cards and should be able to out 2 and 2 together.

If you have a recent card, yes, even if you live somewhere with expensive electricity, at current profitability. Bear in mind if you have purely resistive electric heating, in winter it's effectively cost-free (unless you fry something)

Man, if thatís true, then I hope Anthony gets out of that tiny rear end apartment eventually. Going from his tech upgrade episode to these videos is fuckin whiplash.

I want Anthony to have a nice mantlepiece where he can place all of his probably furry related plushies. I also just want him to get a regular series where he talks about more technical things but that's likely the coldest take at this stage.

No, that's literally the woman in the video I linked. She annoyed the hell out of Linus and they hired her as a writer/host recently to basically be the iGeneration Trash Goblin on staff. She's done Techquickie at least once and a couple other things.

Can anyone recommend a good tech podcast similar to the WAN show? Covering PC hardware / gaming and general tech news?

I like Luke but I'm finding Linus to be more and more jarring. The one where he watches a streamer watching his video was the final straw for me.

I enjoyed solid gold controller videos for the actual bits about casting and other technical stuff, and it does look real purdy.

My rent includes power, so I can stiff my landlord with the power bill.

Is this praxis?

Given that Madison gave me bigger laughs than Linus ever did, I support this initiative. MTT when?

Put Madison in their more technical videos like with Anthony or when they're fabricating something complex.
