1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / split up 24 word recovery phase on: January 06, 2018, 06:10:15 PM
Say I split up my recovery phrase into 3 equal pieces:

traffic wire festival twelve abstract hurdle build water loyal fossil live print bench pet use coil size kingdom matter govern blind fresh mechanic barely
(This was just generated as an example, it is empty)

Set A) traffic wire festival twelve abstract hurdle build water
Set B) loyal fossil live print bench pet use coil
Set C) size kingdom matter govern blind fresh mechanic barely

Then I stored
Sets A and B in gmail ;;  traffic wire festival twelve abstract hurdle build water loyal fossil live print bench pet use coil ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
Sets B and C in a safe  ;;  ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? loyal fossil live print bench pet use coil size kingdom matter govern blind fresh mechanic barely
Sets A and C in a safety deposit box ;;  traffic wire festival twelve abstract hurdle build water ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? size kingdom matter govern blind fresh mechanic barely

How hard would it be for someone to guess the remaining 8 words if they got a hold of 2 sets?
I think I saw read that there are 2048 words?
so 2048^8= 3 X 10^26?
How long would it take to brute force that on a single GTX 1080 TI for example?

If it isn't feasible to crack then I like this because:
You could lose access to any single of the 3 locations and still have all 24 words
Someone could steal any single of the 3 locations, and still not have all 24 words

Let me know if this is stupid for some reason.

Thanks,
Justin
2  Bitcoin / Mining / Insurance on: December 12, 2017, 07:24:49 PM
Anyone have a property insurance policy for their home mining operation?

I have over $10,000 worth of mining equipment, with more on the way.

Trying to keep my costs down, every insurance company I have talk to say I need to get general liability insurance with property insurance, and that gets expensive.

Just trying to protect my self from theft/fire.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Windows 10 updates on: October 18, 2017, 02:14:29 AM
So I have several Windows 10 computers that I uses exclusively for mining.
I don't want windows updates at all.

I disabled the windows update service, and that worked for about a year,
but lately I have been noticing that the windows update service has been re-enabling it self???

Any way to stop windows updates?

I could probably just block all Microsoft domains in my firewall,
but I'm hoping to find an easier way.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Antminer D3 max temp on: September 25, 2017, 04:11:28 AM
I have been running L3+'s outside and they stay under 80.
I just moved a D3 outside and it is running in the low 90's is this too hot?

I can't find anything about the max temp on them.
I see people talking about running S9's at 100,
but then the L3+ has a check box to shut down at 80,
so I'm not sure where a D3 should be.

Thanks,
Justin
