That is more than accent.  The majority of my media consumption is UK produced (big Time Team fan, recently been binging Keith Appleton).  

Yes, thank goodness it was not a documentary about wipple.

That was actuwee a vewee interwesting documentawee .....
According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

BBC Radio 4 investigation being broadcast now, into Mt Gox / BTCE and the 'biggest Bitcoin theft ever'.

Fun if you can get it where you are (not sure if it's easy outside the UK).  But some interesting interviews including Karpeles.

How on earth does a person with a speech impediment get a job in radio?

Is this some demented form of affirmative action?

.. dumber things have happened in crypto than Craig Wright not being the last man standing of the 'supposed' satoshi group

I think it is very unlikely, but he is sure running up patent applications like he is Satoshi

Wright's whole scheming personality is no way parallel to the evidence of Satoshi's personality (whether Satoshi was an individual or a group).  In fact, Wright's patent troll behavior reflects the exact opposite of the spirit and intent of an innovator of an open source project, and earlier you had acknowledged that Wright seems to have a lot of anger, which is also inconsistent with someone who has truly invented a paradigm changing system....

I agree. But since Trump became president, bizarre possibilities haunt my existence.

Well, yeah. That article was cute and all, but it's not like it cut so close to the bone as Spinal Tap did back in the day.

I think you likely posted this just due to the fact that the banner contains a link to this article:

https://www.townandcountrymag.com/leisure/arts-and-culture/a18729402/ashley-judd-interview-salma-hayek-april-2018/

written by a WO staple of lustful desire, no less. (Interviewee is not exactly devoid of charms either).

I agree that Trump represents an against all odds phenomenon, and against all odds phenomena happen from time to time, yet even conceding that against all odds events happen, it would be looney to plan our lives around such events.

Rather, to be more realistic and sane, we need to largely prepare our lives around more likely events.

You know the expression "hope for the best and prepare for the worst," right?  That does not mean that we only focus on the extreme possibilities, but we prepare our self for either extreme, even though the most likely outcome is going to be somewhere in the middle (even though we are prepared for a variety of possibilities), and also there are personal things that are somewhat under our control, but not everything either, so sometimes we also have to prepare for unexpected events that occur that our outside of our control - yet having said all of that the bulk of our preparations should still be to expect more likely outcomes, rather than less likely outcomes, even though from time to time, the more extreme outcomes happen, but even when the more extreme outcomes, happen, we do not throw the whole approach out the window, merely because some strange shit happened.

Somehow whenever I see an Economist talk I lose more respect for the bunch. And I'm quite fond of Economics in general, too bad it's infested with intellectual toddlers and liars.

But if you call BTC a scam now and are correct, your economic cred will moon. Especially
in Finance or Economics or say a Professor of these.

If you are wrong and BTC thrives. Everyone will forget.

So FUD works. Win/Win.

I wish I had one of those, then I wouldn't have lost 4 terrabytes worth of old sentimental grade data by having two hard drives die simultaneously for no fucking reason.

Ugh. This is tragic to hear. Coming from an IT background in a former life, I've learned about having redundancy for redundancy.

eg: All my main storage is via two Thunderbolt Promise RAID chassis DAS units running RAID5, that are backed up hourly to two Synology NAS' with massive storage capacity with Synology Hybrid RAID.

I've, blessedly, not had a catastrophic failure that I could not recover from within a few hours, over the last 10 years.

With no irony or snark, I'm sorry for your losses.
Meh, it happens. But thanks for the condolences.

I managed to snatch up the last available mint condition hard drives for each of the ones that I had that I could find on the internet.
So I've got some spare heads and PCBs that may or may not help me recover the files in the future.

But for now I've put that on halt since I'd have to move all my crypto holdings around since they are backed up on both of those drives as well and I wouldn't want some data recovery service to snatch them up.
