    Not that bad a proposition @captaincranky :D

    Or if you you feel adventurously cranky you can make some of your own and make more ummm 'real coins' not the virtual ones.

    I remember reading somewhere that Radeon 290X was going for around 900$, which is lots of money, so there must be something going on about bitcoining and AMD cards.

    "I remember reading somewhere that Radeon 290X was going for around 900$, which is lots of money, so there must be something going on about bitcoining and AMD cards."

    The Pet Rock made money too. People actually paying for a rock....I think the hula hoop was a money maker as well.

    I know, right? Those were the days of wine and extreme decadence. When men were men, and fools were, well, still fools
    Indeed it was, at least for the Wham-O corporation

    You could never pull of something.like that again. People are simply too fat these days. Where the hell could you store a six foot diameter Hula-Hoop? And you know that sucker's heading directly to abandonment and neglect....And to top it off, they weren't bio-degradable....:eek:

    Anybody who has a hot girlfriend/wife should own a hula hoop.

    Here in the ghetto, USDA Food Stamps and teen pregnancies, have pretty much put an end to, "hot women".....:oops:

    Nowadays, their a**es are measured in, "ax handles", much the same as Paul Bunyan's blue ox, "Babe".:(

    So today, there is a groundswell of sentiment for changing the standards of beauty to accommodate the "full figured woman". Much in the same way, the internet is conveniently, and in a self serving manner, trying to change the standards of currency.

    I am opposed to both, big a**es, and Bitcoin, with an equal amount of disgust.

    Fixed that for you.

    I didn't feel that way 10 years ago, but I have ever since.

    Such bitterness, and at once, so far off topic. Don't you understand, @cliffordcooley, "this is a technical forum", you said so yourself.:oops:

    In any event, it has always been a sad rule of nature that, "young women are as gentle & delicate as kittens, what a pity they grow into cats"....:cool:

    He just described a hotfix for insufferable women. If that's not technical, nothing is.

    Oh dear!:eek: Well, as long as the noose was to hang himself, I suppose it's OK. Actually more than OK...(y)

    OTOH, he didn't suggest the, "hotfix for insuferable women", YOU did.

    The whole, "murder (?) / suicide(?) innuendo", was posted as a quote, in your name!
