Bitcoin – Fad or Long-Term?

bitcoin future of money

It has been a turbulent 12 months for bitcoin. Since its inception in 2009, thanks to Satoshi Nakamoto, it has seen exponential growth. The rapid rise of the bitcoin was countered by a so-called digital recession though in the later stages of 2013.

October 2013 saw the FBI make its move on the Silk Road, an online black market mainly used for illicit drug and firearm trades centred around the bitcoin currency. The arrest of “Dread Pirate Roberts”, aka Ross Ulbricht, sent the currency into disarray. The final months of 2013 saw bitcoins value peak at $1135 before falling to $693 three days later.

Archiving and retrieving data is a critical business function, since every user depends on storage to get their work done – even if they rarely think about the consequences if the storage were to fail.

Online Gambling Tips – Things You Need to Know

Post image for Online Gambling Tips – Things You Need to Know

Physical casino hotel locations will always remain busy with customers, but online game rooms continue to grow. They offer clients plenty of convenience and bonuses, which physical locations do not. Sign up bonuses are one of the top reasons I join sites such as 888poker, because I get free money just for joining the site, while other offers include things such as matching what you deposit up to a certain amount. If you plan on gambling online anyway, why not get a bit of free cash flow while you’re at it?

Once you get into the world of online poker and online casinos, it can be a bit overwhelming. How do you know which site to use or even which game to play? It’s important to educate yourself and learn the rules of the Read More →

pokemon cards

As a young nerd I grew up as most of our kind do. I had a room filled with books, knew way too much about spiders, and played Poke’mon TCG. As such I was subject to a fair amount of teasing, as one would expect, and a bit of isolation. The isolation didn’t come in the normal “No one would play” with me sort. I mean, yea, no one would play with me, but I also grew up in an incredibly small town. The town is so small that today, some 20 odd years later, we only have 5 traffic lights. Small towns, well they don’t have Read More →
