You helped reform me a couple years ago from being a shot-coiner. I have gone deep and run a bunch of ASICs. Thank you both. Dennis in CA. Mandibles was incredible, Matt. Marty, just do the Audible book.

Bitcoin mining does not directly save animals. Bitcoin mining is the process of using computer power to solve complex mathematical problems in order to validate transactions on the Bitcoin network and earn rewards in the form of newly minted bitcoins. This process requires a significant amount of energy and has been criticized for its environmental impact. Some companies and individuals are exploring ways to use renewable energy sources to power their mining operations,

1/ 'clever' way of not boosting the show. 2/ btc mining is effectively impossible using computers. we use ASIC rigs now. 3/ mining rigs do not solve complex math problems. the algo is actually really simple. you just need lotsa power to keep doing them fast. 4/ some people criticize human reproducing and eating beef. so what? 5/ more like 'exploring ways to get subsidised'. i only source 4-6% from my solar. its so lame. and made by slaves (wiegers) + made by coal power. ESG is fiat bullshit.

I often listen to RHR while out walking the dog but sometimes at home watching YouTube. I prefer streaming sats for my content VFV model is the way forward for creator's to create without censorship and filters. When I consume RHR via YouTube I feel bad that I'm not paying for this valuable content so here's a boost to top up. P.S is Odell going for the Bob's Burgers look?

Hey Matt, check out lightning.watch. It notifies you on Telegram when your node goes down. Easy to setup by opening a channel to its node and sending a few messages to the bot on Telegram. I’ve been using it for the past year and it works great! No more having your node down for a week and not knowing about it. Also, thank you guys for doing this every week. Stay humble and stack sats.
