Category: MediaSo bitcoins have spiked again. This is slightly to do with Mt.Gox having a 0% fee for black friday weekend this year (2013).
I know I said I gave up on them, but with the prices hitting well over £500 GBP each, it does get tempting.
Unfortunately, my rig just cant get into the game anymore, even at 700MH/s most pools don't even give me out any work. So therefore i'm stuck mining Litecoins, or various other AltCoins which can be traded on Cryptsy.com.
On an upside, I stumbled across an amount of NMC (NameCoins) I had previously stored away to buy some .bit domains. These arent worth a whole BTC, but something is better than nothing.
I guess it's time to start digging through those old hard drives to find those wallet.dat files and hope I get lucky! (and because I don't throw technological stuff away, I won't end up like this unlucky guy who threw out a hard drive which had £4 million GBP worth of bitcoins on it).

Category: MediaSo, for all of half an hour between 22:00-23:00 GMT YouTube had a lovely 500 Server Error, with a 4150(ish) character hash on every page refresh. Streaming servers still worked, so all of those watching longer videos may not have noticed anything.
Everyone else saw this:
The text reads:
Sorry, something went wrong.
A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.
If you see them, show them this information:...some long hash

The fight for Internet Privacy, it's allies, and Demand Progress are hosting a movie night on Sunday 17th November 2013.
This movie is about how large corporations and the government's are tracking information via technology and the internet.
So, basically, are you really sure about all those terms and conditions you simply clicked 'agree' to?
Twitter. Your images still belong to you as the content poster, however they can re-use them if they wish ("a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense)").
LinkedIn. Can pretty much do as they wish with your data too. Oh, and your ideas, analyse them, commercialise them ("copy, prepare derivative works of, improve, distribute, publish, remove, retain, add, process, analyse, use and commercialise, in any way now known or in the future discovered…" )
Facebook. Hey this big company can do what they like too with your uploaded content. Don't want that any more? Deleted your profile? Shame all those other people interacted with your content, because Facebook is allowed to keep hold of it till all ties are gone.
Google is limited to operational, service improvements and promotional material. Google+ i'm not too sure on, but be my guest and read the terms then fill me in.
I personally use all of the above, and while the terms may be interesting and sometimes worrying, I already agreed to them, and can't change it now. Future terms are different, you may notice the app permissions on mobile phones the request things that they don't need. For example, why does a product listing site require access to all your contacts, phone calls, call history and SMS? I don't know why, and for that reason, I don't install them.
I'll be updating here when the #TACMA at http://www.demandprogress.tv/ has finished.

http://bitmit.net is being sold / transferred by its original company
Inputs.IO had 4100 coins compromised
Mining BTC is HARD
Mining Altcoins is no longer profitable for me (power costs etc)
These are just some of the reasons I am stopping the use of BTC. I may occasionally get involved, but out of interest and as a learning experience, rather than for profit.
I cashed in a few coins myself, for a reasonable profit, and that's fine by me. It was fun learning at the same time.
Thanks to the big ASIC miners, bitcoin mining has now moved over to the people with money to spend. Yes it may still be worth holding on to a few BTC, the price is probably going to increase, hopefully others will still stay interested and not drop out the market due to afford-abilities like I have.
Anyone still dealing in BTC, good luck in your adventure.

Yay I passed it!
Today I took the Digital Analytics Fundamentals Course from Google. Scratched up on some Analytics knowledge, how the interface works, and took the test.
