I wonder how many PS5s it's holding up? ;)
200,000 ton ship lost power and is blocking the Suez Canal since yesterday.

TIL the Winklevoss brothers owned 11 million USD worth of bitcoins in 2013 when the rate was $120/₿.
They must have 420 times their investment, so 4.6 billion USD worth of ₿ now with the current rate ($50,500/₿).

You know, these are the twin brothers who were Harvard classmates with Zuckerberg, and also Olympic rowers for the USA.



The twins, the first prominent figures in the largely anonymous bitcoin world to publicly disclose a big stake, say they own nearly $11 million worth. Or at least $11 million as of Thursday morning — when trading was temporarily suspended after the latest and largest flash crash left a single bitcoin worth about $120.

Guess the people who had 11 millions in the first place can finally have even more. Surely, they are paying taxes, too :p.

The Iciest Hole
After 15 years of making shoes and being bored by it I decided to apply in to a school. School that is supposed to make me in to a game developer. After scrounging up my old school stuff I realized that I'm a moron and I can't read, write or walk. I am now morose because I never took school seriously, also I'm a bit excited over the novel idea of not doing menial labor and learn something interesting. Life is stupid and I wish I could just do what I want.

The dog has chosen a new owner.
What is funny is that it was my thought as well the first time I watched the video: the dog was asking for her to adopt it. Actually, once you know the drill, it is funny because you know that the dog is only asking for her to stay in her car while it rains, or for her to drive it back home so that it does not walk in the mud and it does not get wet. What an initial misunderstanding!

I've just been trying to look into why uMatrix wasn't updating Blocklists on one of my machines and noticed it was deprecated months ago. It's a massive shame as i find UBO a real pain to use and i don't have a PhD in web stuff so it's interface and rules are nearly impenetrable without spending days on the wiki due to the UBO author's total disdain for any kind of user help and their hatred of UI labels. They've done great things but holy crap is UBO a pain to use due to it's poor UI.

I liked uMatrix as it was easy to see what i was allowing and blocking, UBO is nowhere near as understandable without studying every day to keep the info in mind. Meh.

Time to go find a UBO tutorial written for real people not academics.
