L2 solutions are meant to take care of transaction costs, if/when they become unbearable. Which, in a world devoid of mempool spam by Bitmain and their minions, won't happen before massive adoption.

Massive adoption cannot happen -- LN cannot onboard more than the population of one small city per day, due to the anemic BTC block weight. How many millions will it take to reach 'massive adoption'? Multiple thousands.


First of all, ~200K/day is still more than ALL current btc users in just 6mo.

I was responding directly to the 'massive adoption' challenge. Demonstrably, LN is incapable of onboarding 'massive adoption' due to the fact that the hard cap on blocksize is a hard cap on the number of people that can open a channel per unit time.

Second, there are/will be technical solutions as we progress.

We really don't need technical whizbangery when simple block size increase suffices.


I know that i am not going to change your mind about this, but, still...sometimes 'whizbangery' is needed.

We had an explosion of whizbangery a decade ago. We had not come close to riding that to its natural conclusion before wizards that thought they knew better perverted the system.

Oh well, devs gotta dev.

I thought you were a dev.

I do find it strange that this threads participation and viewership rises considerably when such off topic posts are made however...  I am sure it is just a coincidence.

the engine on water invented long ago, but the fuel companys always destroy such inventions, so as not to lose power https://youtu.be/Jivb7lupDNU

therefore, a million old modems 56 for them is better than one novelty, the future for a gross increase of block size

BULLSHUT

what purpose  you have? if the money - it is contributing to a Bitmain clan, and if happiness - it is inaction to auto recount difficulty in the smaller side

3) collapsing fisheries stock ... yep totally agree with you here, it sucks, people are stupid and greedy and the tragedy of the commons will prevail any time you get a shared resource situation like this. I think inevitably aquaculture will alleviate this in the near to not-too-distant future. Fish-farming has come a long way fast since price of wild fish started spiking after stocks collapse, locally I've seen some great ventures in exotic fish species, delicacies that were always thought too hard to be farmed, lobster, abalone, white-bait, scallops, etc. In fact, I suggest invest, aquaculture is going to have a great profitable future and its good for our local habitat (I mean who doesn't love to go fishing for realz?)
I've actually been thinking about how viable a salmon or whatever pond/lake/farm on private property could be. I looked into it but found hardly anything useful beyond a basic confirmation that it's possible. Do you happen to have any idea as to how small scaled fish-farming could be made and how economical/costly it would be or have any reading pointers otherwise? Basically trying to figure out if it's mostly initial fixed costs or if it'll cost a fortune in sustaining. Would love a fucking salmon farm on my property.

You're right. I were a dev. Another field, however.

I hope I have the wisdom for not poking things that are already perfect for their intended task. If not, then certainly the wisdom to not make gratuitous changes that result in loss of positive attributes.

I'm not sure salmon, being anadromous, can be reared in ponds, perhaps.

The salmon farms around here occupy valuable estuary areas and are severely infested with some sort of aquatic lice which then attack the young wild salmon as they come down to the salt water.

Same as it ever was.

Well, IF Bcash had any possibility of being widely used I would see clear overlapping with your field. Or if they keep bloating the blockchain with test transactions even if no one else is really using it.

Honestly I do agree with the "devs gotta dev" joke.... that's why I am glad they can already go and play in L2 as much as they want and leave the Bitcoin "core" alone.


P.S.: And also glad the malicious guys have decided to go play at a remote field and stop hindering the gameplay at the premier league.

How's the weather?

Today where I was it started off quite grey and misty and then it got more misty but it might have been fog and then it started to rain a bit but then I walking around doing some shopping and I got quite hot so obviously the temperature went up a bit but then I got on a train and it seemed cold again and it was raining on the train window but then I saw a bit of sun but then the sun went away again and I started walking from the station and my pants were sticky because I was still a bit hot but luckily I got cold again and they stopped sticking but then it got misty again and I had to drive down the motorway with all the mist and stuff and I wished there was some wind so it would blow away some of the mist but there wasn't any and it stayed misty and now it's dark and I'm not sure what the weather is doing but I'm guessing it's still misty but I can't be sure because I haven't put my head out of the window butimightlaterdependingonwhetheri'minterestedintheweatherbutatthemomenti'mthinkingaboutomorrowsweatherbecauseihavetogoutagainanditsquitehighupandsoiwont beabletoseeanythingbecauseofthemistsoihopeidontcrash.

My limited experience with raising fish in ponds:

1.  Dig a deep hole, as deep as possible.  We have rock 2 meters down.  Line with fish pond liner (like heavy duty black garbage bags)

2.  Add some rocks from the garden onto the liner.  

3.  Fill with water or wait for it to rain.

4. Research fish native to the area

5.  Buy some pond plants the fish like to eat, put in pond and wait a couple of months for them to become established. Add lilies for shade.  

6.  Buy some baby fish and dump them in the pond.

7.  Ignore for a year and let them be fish.  Don’t feed them.

8. Be continually surprised at how big the bastards are.  

Total set up costs: about $2k, mostly labour for hole digging, lining the pond and materials.  Total running costs:  $0.  

If I was to do it again, I would plan for more comprehensive shade to reduce algae growth.  Overhanging trees would be good but we have space restrictions with current pond location.

Main thing for me is keeping an eye on water levels.  We tend to lose more to evaporation than we get in rain due to dry climate, so we have to supplement some times.  Deeper pond with more shade would help here.
