Think Andreas said something along these lines, but this is not a cult and we don't have gods or dieties. If for some magical reason he has the keys to Satoshi's stash it would speak less of Satoshi than more of CSW. Not like people will turn to SV even if he could prove anything. His best case is people starting to believe that Satoshi got brain damaged and turned into CSW, oh well current BTC will live on...

My immediate reply was going to be "won't happen, not a problem", but then I remembered I felt the same way about Trump winning the election. I guess the point is anything is possible, though its more likely that Mark Zuckerberg will be the next president.
Is that kid actually running?

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. People make mistakes and Roger has seemed deeply unhappy in all of his interviews since at least around the fork if not earlier. Will see where he goes from here.

Not this time around. I just saw him as a 1:180 shot in FortuneJack's sports betting section. He's tied with Gavin Newsome and Keith Ellison (don't know who the latter is).

The first computer we had in my house



I think nobody will be interested in my first computers.... Roll Eyes and it will not be shocking that it was the nintendo NES and SEGA console from that time, all the game boys, playstation series, xbox's ....

and I think real computer use was only from my 18th year for msn or how did it was called, little bit of internet watching, but really using a computer and laptop... I'm ashamed but its maybe not longer as 5-6-7 years or something.

How the F*** did I got in BTC Roll Eyes

Does computers you guys posting, never saw those things in my life but here Smiley
Why ashamed? I'm sure every single one of us has seen things that the others haven't. That's what makes life so good. Just imagine how dull reality would be if there was so little to experience that everybody did the exact same thing.

Just like if everybody had the same opinions/view. Nothing to learn from others.
Now you're going a bit too far. Obviously if you disagree with me you have to be Hitler.

pretty much that, yes.

if you read one book by niven, i suggest ringworld, the 1st of the ringworld series. multiple award winner. one of those books you cant put down. even if youre not into science fiction its worth a read, its simply that good.


I don't really read books (my attention span is that of a goldfish). But I've ordered it and might eventually get around to it.

I'm actually a bit of a collector (or want to be when I have the space) of the vintage 80s micros. My only decent one at the moment is the Epson HX-20 (first laptop), it has a built-in dot matrix and micro cassette, I use it for printing out wallet seeds and passwords private keys etc. Very cool. Also, my son enjoys learning to type on it, because of the printer.



heh i have a bit of a collection of early (early to me, i envy you guys with the serious old iron stuff) computers too.

* timex sinclair ts 1000 (zx-81 clone) with 16k ram expansion and sparky printer - my 1st computer
* commodore 64 with tape drive and 2x1541 floppy drives
* trs-80 model 100, looks very similar to your Epson HX-20 but minus the printer (very early portable laptop type computer) with 2400 (or maybe 1200  baud) modem
* trs-80 model one with expansion interface, 48k ram, tape drive, 4x5.25 floppy drives
* lnw-80 (trs-80 clone, uses trs-80 5.25 drives plus two shugart 8 inch drives)
* trs-80 model 4P (two) with 128k ram, bank switched, runs cp/m as well as native trsdos - a portable computer the size and weight of a sewing machine, but it has a handle and is fully self contained. find an outlet and youre up and running, has two 5.25 drives and a green screen plus a built in 2400 baud modem
* apple mac classic and mac plus (plus an external apple hard drive)
* apple lisa (two) - the later lisas, not the 1st model
* one of the 1st ibm clones (cant remember the name), 8088 (8086?), 8 bit expansion slots.. love that HUGE red power lever. took the hard drive like 5 minutes to spin down on power off.

everything boots.

all work but the floppies are getting to be hit or miss now. there are various software/hardware adapters to use another computer to simulate floppies/hard drives.. gotta seriously look into them.

i cut my teeth on those things. all have a fond place in my heart, many many hours of fun and learning.


That's actually a pretty nice collection you have there. God I used to love the c64, I never had one but my cousins did and we absolutely killed that thing. 80s tech is the best, movies too.

I'm unsure about the music to be honest, the 80s music was very original though. I guess the thing about the 80s was that there was a shitload of new technology coming out that was available to the masses, a lot of creativity was able to thrive with this.

Must suck to be Roger. Always picks the wrong side. Gox wasn't fine, Craig neither. Bcash isn't too. I am waiting for his turn to be destroyed just like happened to Craig.


These guys from the fork wars are blinded by their own egos.

They are rich and have money up to their asses. They could spend it into something worthwhile, like some scientific projects, some enterprises to create jobs, expeditions to the north pole and beyond, and maybe the foundations of a citadel for future hodlers, so much things they could do with their money... and they squander it all into stupid hash wars. I read somewhere that they have spend 10 million dollars with it.

I guess that when you have way more than "enough" money, you need to pursue other ventures to feel accomplished... even if those ventures are completely stupid.

Of course, not everyone is alike.

Anyway, I am currently busy trying to have "just enough" money. After that maybe I will be able to have a clearer view about what I have just presumed.

Good morning WO brothers.


Finally, I have a custom trust list inspired by Loyce's post 🙂

(I encourage anyone to create their own custom Trust list!)

I will keep finding users to keep my list up to date.



By the way, one of the rare day I had today. I had to sell a very small amount of BTC today to pay a bill who takes fiat LOL

Maybe you could explain me what do I need a trust list for?

I mean, before bothering to set up one, I would need some reason to do so. I already know who I do trust and who I don't without needing no stinking list. Also.. don't trust, verify!

... And stop selling BTC you fool! Tongue

This was my first computer, a Kaypro. My dad bought it for his publishing business to do payroll, but it was outdated by 1986. Cost $4k:



You could fold it up like a suitcase, so it was "portable"...



It used the nice big floppies, which were required for startup. You could switch disks once the computer had finished booting. There were a few interesting text role playing games, and one "action" game made entirely out of ascii characters, called "Ladder."

I used it all the way up until about 8th grade. My grandfather helped create one of the earliest versions of BASIC and taught me the elementaries of programming, on an Apple II, I believe it was. By the time Macintosh came around I knew how to use ResEdit to mod games (before it was even a term), to mess with my Dad while he was playing Armor Alley.



Yeah, I had an Osborne, very similar, ran CP/M, not my first though
