SiaCoin

Monday, June 19th, 2017

Well,

I am officially running a Sia host at home. Currently at around 4.8997TB of storage. I need a lot more SiaCoins for collateral though. Currently at around 12,000SC and I’m thinking in need somewhere around 1,000,000SC for the amount of space I have. But this combined with my Monero mining & Bitcoin loans are a way to make some extra money so I’m happy.

USB C Cables

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Well, since I’ll be getting my new phone this Friday, I need to find some USB C cables.  The one cable it comes with just won’t be enough for me…….To bad Amazon is full of cables that aren’t safe to use.

Coding

Well, I am working on an Android app for supportXMR.com which is the Monero mining pool I am part of.  I’m using Xamarin so I can code it in C# (which I know better than Java).  Its going ok, but I’m running into an issue communicating with the API.  I hate TLS, it is so difficult to troubleshoot.

Phone

Well, I am getting really fed up with my Moto G4+.  It has started to suffer from the phantom touch issue they can end up with.  It is getting worse and worse too.  I pre-ordered a HTC U11 through Sprint since they are my carrier and I also get two free Amazon Echo Dots with it as well.  I haven’t had a HTC phone for quite a while, so I hope it is good as it sounds like it will be.
