Bitcoin Mining

For those of you who have heard of bitcoins beware. While you can convert your money into bitcoins and hope for a boom, be aware that none of this is backed up by any financial institution. However, this is not what I'm writing about today. What I'm writing about are the miners.

Mining for Bitcoins can cost you more than you will find


It's sad but true. Now there are people out there making money off of this, and there are people out there who did and have made money off of this. How did they do it? It's simple, they were on the front lines when bitcoining first came out. Since there were few people who were crunching numbers the take was vast. Fast forward today, the bitcoin file is over 6 gigs in size and is growing fast. Will your at home not built for mining rig work anymore? The truth is, no. It simply does not have the proper equipment to mine. If you did have that equipment, a really fast video card, it is more likely to cost you more in electricity to run the system then you will discover in bitcoins. 

The fact of the matter is, to make any real money off of this will require an investment of time and money. It will also take some hard work, and research to make sure you have everything in order. You can build your own mining machine, the question is should you?

Think of the impact on your electricity bill and how much you will need to make to overcome that and by how much? %10? 20%? Think of what your bill is now, add onto that 20% increase for the cost of electricity. That is what you need to make to break even on electric alone. Now what did it cost you to build the miner and overclock the gpus? It adds up fast. On top of that your environmental footprint will expand and the room you put your miner in will heat up. GPUs are hot folks, they suck a lot of power. 

So if you are looking for a fast way to make a lot of money, this is not it. You would make more money, and do it faster by working at McDonalds for minimum wage.

This is what happens when I get bored.

Ok, So I'm Really Bored

This is what happens when I'm bored and not feeling well. No I'm not lazy, it was just  easier to put my thoughts into a video today rather than type them out.

Death

It is an awesomely strange feeling when you find out the passing of someone you were close to. Last week I attempted to reconnect with an old friend. A teacher, mentor and the person who is responsible for saving my music career. After searching the college website where he worked I found him not listed. So I ran a google name search to see if he had moved and  found that he passed away just a few months ago.

It caught me off guard to the point that it brought tears to my eyes and I experienced such a reaction that I am not used to.

The reason I was looking him up was because someone gave me a bunch of sheet music. In the group was one from 1901 and was a reproduction of 15th century music. I thought it so fascinating that he might want to look at it. Now I regret waiting until this new school year started.

Death impacts everyone differently. I know he will be missed and for a very long time I will continue to think about him.

Even random thoughts can be hard to come up with

A long time ago...

Ok, cheap pop just to get your attention! Now that I have it; I remember back when I started this blog. It was here for me to vent and just put out everything random that came to mind. Nowadays, I am a business owner and my thoughts are always on what I am doing with my company. It doesn't make it so easy to stay random here. So from time to time you might see a blog post about social media and the impact that it can have on people. 

While I am staying random.

I am going to post a link to a youtube video that did a few years back. It was a review of a virtual pipe organ system. I really would like to go back and revisit it again someday. 

That's about it for this post. Have a great day.

Fire's Coming Fast

More Fire

Just over the past few days we have added many more starter fires to our little area around here. I just wanted to post here to make sure that everyone knows to not take these things lightly. Even if you are miles away and live in the center of your city they can and will affect you. If you have any breathing problems at all make sure your medications are topped off or just get out of the area if you can. 

Have a great day and I'll update more as I can.

New Fires and a loss of life

New Fires and a loss of life

According to Oregonian several new fires have broken out in my state. This has just been in the past few hours. The said thing is according to Oregon Live a 21 year old firefighter has lost his life, the first loss of the season.

Mixed feelings

This brings me to one of the biggest mixed feelings I've ever had in my life. I was raised to not be afraid of thunder and lightening. To this day I will not hesitate to drive my car into a storm and sit there and watch it move around. My camera will be up and I'll be taking pictures like a mad man. Which brings me to question, how can I both love and yet dislike these storms. I love the rush I get, but on the other hand I know that there is a potential for great loss of life during and long after the storm has past. The fire itself is a necessity of life. We know this to be true as some pines will not drop their seeds until heated to the temperature that a forest fire brings. We also know that they will eventually burn themselves out over time. However because we have chosen to live where we have, people fight to save the lives of those who have chose to live so close to nature. Because of that people will lose their lives. 

On to something lighter

I recently started my own company. I had done some research into what it would cost and such, but I had no idea the work it takes just to get something legitimate going. It's no wonder that a lot of people who work for themselves try and keep it on the downlow. I know by the time I was done getting everything set up, website, state fees and the such my company started in the hole. I'm still not done with everything, I need business cards and a few other things, but we are making head way. It's incredible on a local scale how many people do not know how to effectively use social media. So that's what I am here to do. Teach them and help them run the larger accounts. 

Thought for the day

If you hear something about someone, validate it before you repeat it. Gossip can be a pain in the ass.
