So mining has made my current graphics card worth aprox. 3 to 4 times what I paid for it. I decided to see why and got into mining the other day and set up NiceHash. With my CPU and GPU both mining I'm making about ~15 cents a day. By January I'll have about 27 bucks if I ran my gaming rig all day and night. I thought Ethereum mining was supposed to be good for this kind of set up. How does anyone profit from this at all? Even if the card was regular priced you wouldn't make your money back on the card until ~2 years had passed. Am I missing something?
Ah, this makes a lot of sense. Thanks anon. If this is the case should I abandon nicehash and focus on something that doesn't pay out in bitcoin and instead pays out in ether or is NH really the best way to go about it?
cryptocurrency is a hot mess right now
most of the people you see shilling it on /biz/ don't actually mine, far less normies.
the state of the market is far gone from how it was in the early days when everyone would mine a little with their excess processing power.
most "investors" treat it like a virtual commodity or stocks, buying, selling and holding it
any mining of worth is now done by specialized setups and large operations. Gone are the individual home miners. nobody even mines on their PCs anymore. GPU and CPU mining has long been replaced by ASIC miners (usually large chinese run operations)

The keyboard itself is in remarkable condition. The only "problem" is the oxidation that has occurred on the front of the keyboard. Bought an adapter and now I'm typing on it. I thought you guys would be interested in seeing before and after pics.

My understanding is that headphone users are poorfags who can't afford a good stereo system, or live with their parents, or have annoying neighbors (usually it's some combination of these three factors)

How can I become a hacker?
It's something you're born into, you are very deprived and have a horrible life so you spend all your time in online communities and eventually you find your way down a rabbit hole and spiral into an irreversible path without redemption. Then finally before you know it, you've stolen thousands of dollars from innocent people and this is the only life you know and your only friends are just a name in IRC and you can never speak to anybody in the real world about it because you know the implications and the laws you've broken and how everyone will think you're a dangerous psychopath.

Why did it change?
There was once a time when humans lived in constant connection with the Spirit World. From ancient Shamanic traditions, we know of rituals used to propel the primitive human consciousness into the Spirit World to obtain knowledge, guidance, and to commune with ancestral spirits. In the modern and technologically advanced present, our sensory input is overwhelmed with what is classified by many people to be ‘real’. This usually comprises of advertisements, propaganda, and pervasive attack from all sides, by known and unknown assailants. These mega-corporations seek to control and dominate the human race. Through government-funded black projects, clandestine operations to eliminate resistance and indoctrinate state-supported dogmatic systems, and disinformation via mass media, they are effectively cleansing the human ability to discover himself through journeying not with his body or mind, but with his spirit. These aspects of spirituality have either been completely ignored in pursuit of material ‘ideals’ perpetuated by state media or perverted by so-called ‘new age’ interpretation from those who have no knowledge of the innate nature of a human being, who fail to grasp even a basic concept of the Spirit World. Other systems of control also exist, specifically in the sphere of technology, which is now so heavily embedded within urban society. There can be no doubt that along with the development and expansion of the Internet, new forms of communication and interaction with the world around us has developed. No sooner have such technologies emerged, than government and corporate agencies have sought control over it.
