Why can’t you make money mining cryptocurrency?

It seems like a good idea right? Leave your computer on while it does millions of calculations per seconds to find hashes that have the right number of zero’s to qualify as a valid block and get rewarded with crypto-currency for your troubles.  Turn your computer on and starting running a miner (cgminer or cudaminer) and pick a coin that doesn’t have a lot of competition, maybe smartcoin?  You join

Litecoin mining results, is there any future for crytpocurrencies?

I have now been mining litecoin in a mining pool for about 3 days. It took  me nearly two days to setup the systems as mining requires installing special video card driver’s and API’s to support OpenCL, and Cuda for NVidea cards.  It also required installing special mining software and digital currency wallets.

The internet should be free to all, bypass those region restrictions!

ACCESS DENIED! This content is not available in your region. Well, F^ck that! Those dumb-ass home business owners seem to think that just because you’re not in the U.S. or Europe, that you aren’t human, and don’t have real money to buy their products.  While I could bring this to the Anonymous hacker group, I decided I would handle this peacefully and hit them where it hurts: public perception which

Is Wikipedia a scam?

Many, if not most searches on Google, are going to return results from Wikipedia. The site gives an impression that it is an ‘all-user contributed content’ and that it can contain anything.  This false vision of Wikipedia was destroyed the first time I decided to offer a contribution to the Encylopedia. My first contribution was an article about VNet Publishing, a project my wife and I started, and an article about
