Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

You know you've found a field of endeavour you're genuinely interested in when you continue to read the textbook after your courses are done.

There's a whole swathe of material we didn't cover such as the use of special purposes registers that enable SSE and AVX extensions. Super interesting stuff!

I did see those three Swedish versions and agree that they were excellent. Watched the American version at the movies when it came out and, again, on Netflix a few weeks ago. Was not aware there had been a sequel. What is its title?

Re: Netflix junkie

"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" is an excellent movie. The sequel, not so much. The recasting of the two main characters had me salty in particular. Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara were such a great pair. The Swedish versions were all excellent. I liked the American ones, but the Swedes nailed it. I...

I just ordered Jordan Peterson's next book! It's called "Beyond Order: 12 More Rules For Life". I'm very, very excited for this.

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

There is one thing about quantum resistant encryption and algorithms I wanted to mention. Someone earlier mentioned how if Bitcoin is vulnerable to QC attack then we'd have bigger things to worry about like our bank accounts. I'm not so much worried about QC attacks on my bank accounts and such, as ...

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

I just need to think of a suitable rebalancing policy.

One great thing about the fortuitous timing of the launch of the BTCC ETF is that I can now have "shallow" Bitcoin held in a tax-advantaged account. This is much like gold -- shallow Bitcoin in the ETF and deep Bitcoin in my software wallet.

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

F*#k it. I've been thinking about it since I started this thread. I'm sold. 1% of my PP in Bitcoin.

In my case this doesn't engender any buying/selling. I was already holding Bitcoin in my VP. This is just a mental shift more than anything.
