Minergate

Minergate has picked up where LTCRabbit unfortunately left off – I STILL don’t know exactly why they shut down, but really liked them, so I’m genuinely interested – anyone? Minergate is significantly simplifying home mining, and doing a lot for the industry.  I only recently realized that the “x11” coins I used to mine on LTCRabbit were exactly what Dash is now …

Coinbase Works!

So, I accumulated a good amount of Litecoins, before LTCRabbit shut down.  I’m still  not 100% sure why it did even, except their released information that the “Stratum servers shut down.”  Which is fine, but so far at least, there’s no additional information via Google; I didn’t even think that they were even entirely dependent on …

John Oliver Has Surpassed Jon Stewart

Unlike the comment in in my earlier post, this does deserve its own post.  I was fortunate enough to actually catch this episode when it originally aired, and I honestly had no prior idea who Robert Murray even was; I do now.  This absurdly frivolous lawsuit, and his actions as a businessman (a “coal king”) are …

Recovering Windows XP Professional Password

Windows XP Professional Password Recovery Recently, I booted up the old Shuttle SN41G2 I used in college, only to run-into the password prompt, for a password I had honestly completely forgot.  The good news, is that this is a solved problem, on XP (and more recent versions too, I believe).  I had to nab the password reset …

Heterotopic Ossification (Part 1)

So, I mentioned in http://www.ericangleton.com/update-torsional-diplopia/ that this would receive its own post; and, that’s materializing.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heterotopic_ossification is a condition I didn’t even previously think was possible – hence why you never hear of amputees, “regrowing” their lost limbs; and, just to be clear, after a fair amount of research, I’m not sure this would even really allow for …

Vadim Zhukov – Basically Russia’s Paul Oakenfold

I originally listened to this as “Vadim Zhukov – Untitled,” implying that this may have been unreleased for quite a while. I only learned well afterword, that it was indeed released as “Energy Driver.” I then tried to obtain nearly anything I could from him; I don’t think any of his other tracks hold a …

Update & Torsional Diplopia

I haven’t exactly been great at keeping this guy updated; at least semi-recently, I have a reasonably good excuse. Anyway, the linked hit-&-run, was almost fatal; I was in the hospital, and later rehab, for just shy of a year. Thankfully however, I have an amazing employer, whose CEO was beyond generous. Literally, every single …

C# Alternative to a Type Dictionary

Somewhat recently, I needed a dictionary whose index was the entry’s type. The obvious way to go about this of course was to simply create a dictionary whose index was the entry’s type, like so: There is a really cool, and much faster, alternative though – which was brought to my attention by one of …

AAPL Cash/Share

I’m not particularly a fan of Apple products, nor have I ever understood the willingness of consumers to pay a sizeable premium for them, but I can’t argue with Apple’s success as a company. Their annual EPS growth has been both absurdly consistent and absurdly high. Consumer sentiment might be shifting though, which of course …

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath, then you’ll be successful

I’ve already covered the best motivational video ever, but this might be the second best. The original speech is by Eric Thomas. I might be a little biased on this one since we share first names. 🙂
