I'm Anima: furry author, pudgy panther, vore-fan, and geek. Here on my Tumblr I'll post, like, and re-blog stuff I think is nifty.
Have some free time on your hands? Are you not allergic to MLP fanfics?
Consider becoming a pre-reader for the fic I’m working on. It was my Nanowrimo project this year, and I’d like to get it before some eyes (once I’m through revising some more) before I start posting it.
Blurb: “Applejack has tried everything she can think of to turn things around at Sweet Apple Acres, but it seems that every month brings disappointing sales and further expenses. She feels the weight of responsibility for the farm and its imminent failure bearing down on her harder every day, and every failed attempt to fix things drives her deeper into depression. What happens when the Element of honesty hides her true feelings from her friends, knowing they wouldn’t understand? What will happen to the Apples, and the town itself when the iconic apple orchards’ gates close?”
So I’ve realized that I can no longer mine bitcoins, like, at all. The last time I really made any progress was in…2011 I think, earning allllmost two over a two-year span or so.
Now, CPUs and GPUs are laughable ‘cuz people are using hardware specifically designed for the task of mining bitcoins. My dual-core desktop with its mid-range ATI video card from last year gets out there, and it’s producing Mega Hashes while everyone else is in the Giga Hash range. I stopped paying attention to the arms race, and I’ve got a rubber band gun while the rest of the community upgraded to napalm. :KD
I took a look at the equipment they’re using now. One device looks like a USB flash drive, and they’ve built a giant USB hub where you can rack like, 40 of them.
When will the bitcoin bubble burst I wonder? Yesterday China banned its banks from dealing with bitcoins, and the market dipped. Analysts expect the bitcoin to fall 50% in the coming week, but I dunno. China didn’t do a thing to stop private individuals from trading, and there are still plenty of ways to do that without Chinese banks…
Hey, if any of you need some recipes to help kick your Thanksgiving meals up a notch, here are some favorites I trot out frequently.
Garlic mashed potatoes (Do NOT tell anyone how much butter is in these. I also usually add 1/4-1/2 cup of sour cream, half and half, or milk to help loosen them up.)
Stuffing (You don’t have to cook it in the bird; you can bake it in the oven in a casserole dish as well, 350 degrees, 20 minutes or so. If you’re looking for dried mushrooms, try Trader Joe’s. They’re cheaper there than at Kroger’s, at least in my area.)
Pumpkin black bean soup (I modify this recipe a bit. Instead of can of pumpkin puree, I cut up 1/3rd of a raw pie pumpkin and processed it with a few tablespoons of chunky peanut butter. I added ~1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of tarragon, a tbs of honey, 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes, and 1/4 tsp seasoned salt. I left out the ham.)
Glazed carrots (My absolute favorite way of eating carrots. Do not skip the parsley, and do NOT use dried, it’s a very important component of this dish.)
