Garden Update -- Moving & Planting Well the cucumbers sitting on the ground were getting in the way of other projects so it was time to hang them up. Moved all the pots to my cucumber corner. There were 24 pots of cucumber plants, 2 pots with tomato plants, 2 pots with cayenne pepper seeds & 2 more pots with cucumber seeds. All fit in the corner with room to spare. I'm trying something new ...
Garden Update -- Fixing Old Pots One of the big issues with planting in hanging baskets is the pots are cheap and break. Either the bottoms crack and let water drain out of the reservoir or the cheap plastic hangers break. Of course the pots themselves can break but not much you can do about that one except pitch them. In this post I will show one way I fix broken hangers. Many of the hang...
Garden Update -- Rainy Day Messing Around With the Irrigation System So I have been thinking on how to hang my irrigation system. Normally this would be easily done with just some wire tires but that's not going to work. The people I hired to trim the shrubs when I was sick didn't trim the back of them in my cucumber corner. Now I can't reach the pipe without climbing into the shrubs. Not going ...
Do people using LN channels have any clue how people pay bills? After reading another reddit thread about how many LN transactions vs Bitcoin BCH transactions you would need to make to cover the cost of the BTC TX fee I started thinking. Do the people pushing the use of LN even pay bills or know how to? There are always replies like you just put all your money into a channel and you are done or ...
Garden Update -- Transplanting Day It was past time to get some of the plants out of the starter pots and into the hanging baskets. Took some time yesterday to get the 2 flats with the biggest plants transplanted. Since I haven't done this in a few years it's been kind of a pain in the butt. Pots are old. Bags of potting mix are dry rotted and breaking open, and some of the pots are no longe...
Garden Update -- My "Cucumber Corner" Not really an update on the plants this time. This is the area I had made to grow my cucumbers in and where I should have my seeds starting. It hasn't been used in several years so it's kind of a mess. This is a kind of hidden corner of the back yard. Can't see it from the porch or the street. At one time there was a big air condition unit that took u...
I was in my shed for the first time in months yesterday. I used to move some of my miners out there during the summer back in my mining days. Bunch of UPS and a network switch still out there. This got me thinking about my wallet full of small mining payouts. Many of those payouts are smaller then the fees to spend them. They are still sitting in my old full node that I don't even run anymore. I l...
Planting Some Cucumber Seeds Well it's been several years since I had a garden. I still have a bunch of seeds and my Mom has been joking about me growing her some cucumbers again so I figured what the heck. I still have all my seeds from back then and I managed to pick up 4 packs of last years seeds for a dollar at of all places the auto parts store. Went to Wallmart on Monday and picked up a 2 ...
If you haven't heard yet bitcoin cash has a hard fork coming up on May 15th. There is already more than reasonable suspicion that there will be another attack during the upgrade. A large miner with 35% of the hash rate has appeared at just about the time BSV hash rate dropped. There have also been many veiled threats of an attack by pro BSV trolls on reddit. Recently there was also a 6 block deep ...
So earlier today I pulled an old bottle of cough syrup out of the medicine cabinet. Well box really. Inside the box was an old coupon. Well past expiration. As I was tying and failing to sleep and idea hit me. Businesses could use tokens for coupons. If you ever looked closely at an old coupon you will usually see something that says actual cash value and some small fraction of a cent. That small ...
Something to think about…………
Something that occurred to me today. If you have coins that are locked up in a layer 2 like LN or Liquid then you are giving up your ability to control your finances. BTC has a limited supply. Anyone owning a pice of that supply has a say on what the price of the coin is. You "say" by buying and selling those coins. Of course the more fiat or crypto you have the bigger the weight of your "say" in ...
I have a good idea from time to time on products that would make some money and/or spread adoption.  Problem is I never know what to do with those ideas.  If I post them out in the open then someone will just steal them.  So many scammers in the crypto space which also makes finding anyone trustworthy an issue.  Sure it's possible to go the old route of contacting a patent attorney but I know from...
So I was browsing the web when I came upon [an article](https://thetakeout.com/send-a-furloughed-federal-worker-a-beer-1831740364) about sending beer to a furloughed federal employees. Didn't read much of the article but just saw the prices to do it. As soon as I saw those high prices I though man you could do this with bitcoin cash for near free. Don't even need to send the beer just the amount t...
So far there are no real good replacements for YouTube.  dTube and dLive were good ideas but they have issues.  The underlying idea is a good one though.  Store files on decentralized storage linked to a blockchain.  The problem is it's currently slow and unreliable.  So how to get around the issue.  We need to centralize the decentralized files.  Yes that sounds backwards to what we want but h...
So I singed up a couple of days ago and was approved today.  I logged in and went to my profile.  First thing I noticed right off the bat was you can link twitter and reddit.  I'm all for that but where are the options to link your blockchain based social media.  Specifically memo and steemit. Promoting decentralized options should be priority.  Next I went to setup my wallet.  While pretty eas...
