yeah early computers were pretty wild, i remember a huge TTY/paper tape terminal my dad had from his military days.

wish there were more pictures. missing was a pic of the hopper you shoveled the coal into  Grin

here is one of my actual  computer shop in while in the navy.

the guy in the photo is one of the DS  it repair techs

this photo is circa 1978  to the right is the card reader
behind him is the computer
to the left  are 2 of 4 tape drives
and  there is a teletype in the foreground



never seen one of those old computers in my life...but I was able to try that bell bottom pants when I was in high school Grin.. my schoolmates liked it ...my uncle served in US navy and he sent his old and new stuff to my grand parents house..I salvaged a few stuff..there is also a nice leather boots that I use during rainy season in school, I was able to walk in 4 inches of flood water without getting my feet wet.

yeah looks familiar, yellow paper and all. paper tape reader was on the side, it was more like a cabinet with the teletype on top. RS-232 interface connected to a TRS80 Model I as a printer. fun times. ill see if there is a photo of it somewhere.

My father always worked in electronics/tech....  He's an RF guy.

Initially he worked for Rolm...  Then Trimble Navigation, Lockheed Martin, Cisco Systems, Hospira.....     Ive always had the ability to see big machines doing unimaginable things.

Back in ~96 my father and his friend almost put a T3 into our house so we could serve out ISDN lines.... good thing we didn't do that lol.  But back in the mid 90's, imagine what it was like to download an 8Mb video in a few seconds....  the first time I ever went with him to the main network hub to check out the setup and see what we were getting into for the hosting service he wanted to do.....   it was awesome.

YoBit is not to be trusted.   They magically show volume that is 10-100x the amount of coins that the total network has on a certain shitcoin;  and it all happened while the wallet was "offline" and about half of the actual coins in the network are in private wallets.

Be warned;  stay away from them.  -JK

fucking asics makers ruining everything, thank god for x16r

does raven have more exchanges?  I have a cryptobridge  I would like a few more exchanges
They are working on getting listed on bittrex(got the legal stuff about them not being a security done already) and will probably be listed soon,we cant really know the exact date because who ever subbmited request had to fill NDA also
Do you by chance have any links that lay out how they justified not being a security (I agree, just wondering about a good source here for reference)
Lawyer from some big law company put it together for free(someone else was asking for 20k$ or some exchange suggested to use that company)As for exact document this should be the one
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Se_GqusXcobgdVGwa8x55oQjJfTFHkHUQTxuqPcOmbA/edit
thank you for digging this up, checking it out now! Cheesy

I am holding 5200 rvn. Which is somewhat like 100 usd.

Maybe I should mine some more.

Ive been thinking about it... but;  I think ill just sit on my ~1024 coins and hope for a 15,000+ satoshi value someday.   It was only a few weeks of mining with gear that was already paid for and on free power;  so I'm in no rush to sell my RVN.....  The buy support on RVN is there for the most part... just not the volume.

I have most of my gamble in ~1.5% of a smaller coin's supply.   It used to sell from 10K satoshi to 35K satoshi back when I first did short trading with it....    so hopefully when the coin's project blooms... good news for me... even if it goes back to the 15K satoshi range;  that's massive profits and coinage to do much more with....

I sold 6500 rvn when it was over 2.2 cents  it is now 1.89 cents

The 5200rvn is all profit so I can hodl as long as I want.

Same with BIS I mined 300 coins of it and sold 100 of them.
the 200 I hodl is all profit.  I have them for sale at 9 and 18 dollars  I think BIS is at 1.24 dollar right now.

Lastly I have BTG  I am up to 5.75 of them

MY new move is mine  6x 1080ti's on Eth with the pill  and convert to btc then Hodl
and mine BTG with 6 x 1080 ti's and Hodl.

of course mine some BTC on ck's pool and Hodl

my earnings are under 1000 usd a month.  no where near last years numbers.

What hash rate do you get on your 1080tis mining BTG? Haven't followed BTG or equihash in a while and it seems like i can't find any benchmarks for 1080tis and "zhash."

Currently contemplating on whether or not to sell my 1080tis or just keep mining. They are ROI-ed and paid for but it seems like an instant $500 for each 1080ti sounds like a good option to start considering as well.

I earn 1 coin about every 3 days.

Gear is paid for and power deal is split the coins.  So I get a coin for me every six days. That is 60 coins in a year or 2k. I could sell the six cards but it would piss off my buddy as they heat his office .

His place is over ac in summer and no heat in winter.  His power is free.  So he would expect me to replace the gear.  I guess I will leave them alone.  As for hash rate on the 144.5 algo I want to say 50-52
So six cards do 300-312sols for btg.

Coin may comeback as they did fork once and promise to fork again if need be.

I want to mine this coin till I get to 100 of them.

I mine on simple mining use ewbf 3 or 4

Since gear is in my buddies office I like simple mining.

I route these to my trezor from miningpoolhub. Which is where I mine the coin

I think right now the best move is to mine and HODL all altcoins.

If you got Antminers, then mine BTC and sell that but HODL all altcoins because if history is an indicator of anything. There "might" be another crazy FOMO rally if the ETF is a go.

ETH, ZEC, XMR, BTG, all are crazy low right now. Not worth selling them at all.

No  did not get to  play much with games on it.

I did load 1000's and 1000's and 1000's of key punch cards on  that card reader. 

Best  shift was 11 pm to 7 am.   We did a long printout it took 3 hours to print.  You could pull a chair up to the printer put the cover down and take a nap while it printed.  If it jammed it would stop and you would wake up and fix the jam.  If it finished the job it would stop you would wake up and take the 3000 page print out  get it ready to distribute the next morning.  The computer shop  had multiple locks as it was a secure room.

So I would basically get to take a 3 hour nap every night I worked.  I would knock off work at 7am get some breakfast in the ships galley and take a bus to the beach.  Sleep a few more hours while getting a nice tan and then come back to the ship at 4pm  hang out with my buddies and go to work at 11pm.  Since my ship was a repair ship we would stay docked more then we sailed.  I got to do that routine above for about 13 months in a row while at San Diego.

Man punch cards!  Don't ever drop a stack of those and if you do pray they're numbered.
