Well after all that shitstorm it seems like the issue was actually my primary SSD?????? fuck knows how but it died completely last week so I replaced it and haven't had a single crash since, I have no idea how/why it would cause it but I assume its to do with it locking up when accessing specific data which was why it was so sporadic.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Physical rape is psychological Murder.

Does anyone actually know anyone (or they themselves) who has owned bitcoins, I've never understood it myself, but then again I'm so old I still have a facebook account!

Pfft, get with the times. Bitcoin is so 2009

I mined some altcoins just out of curiosity really. At the moment the value lies in exploiting an early bubble in a potential future currency, as the more coins are created the harder it becomes to make more. There's therefore a huge grab for the numerous alt currencies currently being set up; there's even some websites created their own currency that you can buy titles/avatars with.

There are numerous charts for the ROI of various coins based on your GPU/electricity cost. If you buy a 7850 right now in the UK you'll get your money back in litecoin in a couple of months. In other countries with reasonable prices the return is far greater. The prices vary so wildly there's no certainty over anything, but it's easy enough to make money for nothing really, just comes down to scale.

When the new bubble bursts there's gonna be a lot of very cheap radeons on eBay.

Greenpeace needs to do some high profile protests on these disaster zones.

This is one of my gripes. What an absolutely arbitrary method of obtaining wealth. Searching for primes. Tis folly.
