"NiceHash stored all of the miner’s Bitcoins within a single wallet, seemingly offering zero redundancy in the case of this very event occurring."

The question must be asked: Are they really that dumb, or was this a long con? I think the answer is obvious.

Yeah, smells of inside job.

I am always turned off when people say "The internet is a problem.". People existed before the internet and most wars happened before the internet. Why polarize an issue in the first 4 words? They are meaningless.

The whole story sounds like something I would hear about in highschool. A girl lets her "friend" read her diary then the "friend" comes to school and reads the diary outloud and embarrasses her.

Agreed. People haven't changed, just the medium.

If they didn't touch that series again (highly unlikely) I'd just be happy that I got to play them all. The entire series is a rare highlight in my gaming hobby life.

There were some slightly grindy aspects to it, but I didn't mind it so much. These days I don't need to play on higher difficulties, I just mainly play for the adventure, location designs, and writing. If I wanted some huge challenge I'll load up a game that's built for that (Dark Souls series.. etc..)

Okay. I just really hated the combat.

The only problem I have with the Ur-Quan Masters (HD Remaster) is it's difficult to try to get it to scale properly on a 4K display.

That's a really small complaint for what's a truly fantastic project.Reply

I'd be impressed if that wasn't a problem for any game that was originally capable of only running on 640x480 with a far more limited color palette...

90 is still within spec, if it makes it bearable from a noise standpoint on that fan profile, what's the problem?Reply
Dave James Avatar

The temperatures were creeping up and up and, without the cooling kicking in as it did, the GPUs would have collapsed under the load. The manual step the fans were on essentially meant they remained at a specific speed no matter the temp.


I'm sure there will be a balance you can strike with the amount of fan profiling on offer (as I mention in the piece) but it is going to take a bit of effort on your behalf.

It's the same artist, so that's not too surprising.

This is interesting. How would you compare the noise levels under full gaming load to other laptops in it's class such as those it's being compared to in the review or something like the GT62VR?Reply
Dave James Avatar

It's impressively quiet. I believe the Max Q spec is for gaming load to be 40dB or less.
