    There's such a huge spectrum of miners that there's not a single approach to catch them all. On one end, we have a type of miner that has been at it for a few years, so they're careful about monitoring temperatures, undervolting, power. They'll have an elaborate ventilation setup with huge dust...

    Wi-Fi network setup for 3 floors

    Yeah, I really need to upgrade these access points to 5GHz ones, 2.4GHz is far too crowded in my area as well. And it turns out that I have some devices that cannot operate on channel 13, so I've changed it to channels 1, 6, & 11.

    Wi-Fi network setup for 3 floors

    Hey, thanks. I really hadn't looked up wifi channels or channel width before. I downloaded the open-source wifi analyzer android app and this is what I found at the four different access point locations: Basically, it was a mess with overlapping channels. Each of coloured censor bars...

    Wi-Fi network setup for 3 floors

    yes, they act as unmanaged switches that also have wifi broadcast/authentication built-in and they're all connected to a (fifth) central router that does all dhcp/dns/routing. Linksys calls this configuration 'Bridge Mode':

    Wi-Fi network setup for 3 floors

    I have four ~1k wifi routers set up as access points with the same SSID and password, at different corners of the house. Channels are on auto. The transmit power is set to the lowest setting, so devices switch over easily this way and no access point overpowers the signal of another. I've had...

    AMD Ryzen 5000 (Zen 3) processors Official launch | Where Gaming begins. (October 8, 9:30 PM)

    There's an alternate take for our current situation: Play older games until GPU availability improves. I have a huge back catalogue of games that would be perfect for APU's like this.

    WTB Want to buy Core i7-3770 (3rd Gen) or Core i7-2600 (2nd Gen)

    Do you have an existing procesor in that computer? I have a 3770 but I'm looking to exchange it with an i5 + cash.

    Okay, so some clarification: Bitcoin mining doesn't have anything to do with GPUs or GPU availability/shortages. It's entirely ASIC and has been for almost a decade. It's Ethereum mining that's the GPU blackhole. There are other cryptocurrencies that you can mine with a GPU, but all of them...

    I'm guessing one it's 18 ports since the majority of computer hardware is shipped (ha) by sea. Thanks for sharing this, it's nice to see real time estimations: https://cbeci.org/ For reference, the entire population of Sweden as a country, is less than Mumbai as a city. (1.02 cr vs 1.25 cr)...

    Apple M1 5nm chip launched for macbook air and pro 13 inch

    Also at Apple retailers, they have 12 month no-cost emi on HDFC credit and debit cards on all Apple products, as long as you have enough available credit. Just keep in mind that HDFC likes to charge IGST extra on each emi payment.

    Is there a way to buy from aliexpress.com now ?

    So how does banning all imports from China help solve this problem? Before, X% of my orders would be levied customs. Now, it's 0%. Maybe this China ban has more to do with pride rather than actual economics after what happened at that border. That said, customs has gotten a lot more strict over...

    Chia Plotting Service in India

    So good news? Haha. I mean, yeah, it's good news that Crucial will honor the warranty based on years/TBW for their SSDs instead of use cases (plotting vs boot drive). But this is a moot point anyway, newer plotters are now available that reduce TBW by 75% compared to what was officially released...

    All OS Do you still root your phone?

    I don't root or run custom roms anymore on my main device, or even install APK's. Ever since 2FA with OTPs and Authenticator apps became necessary, the risk was/is far too great. I have a soft rule that a phone should last for and be responsive for 1 month for every 1k spent. This lets me play...
