Miners are rewarded for each block they validate with a reward in bitcoins plus the transaction fees for the transactions recorded in the block.
The number of bitcoins awarded per mined blocked is on a decreasing scale, halving every 210,000 blocks. This will next happen in 2020. Eventually it will reach zero in about 2040 as part of the original design of the currentcy, at this point miners will only receive transaction fees for validating the blocks.
1900 was not a leap year as it is divisible by 100 but not 400
In the Gregorian calendar three criteria must be taken into account to identify leap years:
The year can be evenly divided by 4;
If the year can be evenly divided by 100, it is NOT a leap year, unless;
The year is also evenly divisible by 400. Then it is a leap year.
"Three years ago the BBC's web presences did more or less the same thing. The corporation declined to say what caused it beyond an "internal system failure"."
Actually there was a rather long and in depth blog post about it
Reminds me of when we got about half a dozen desktops back to head office for a RAM upgrade at a place I used to work. Spent about 30 seconds trying to open the padlocks with a pair of pliers which only got as far some minor dents in the lock. Then turned the pliers on the loops on the case the locks went through, it was lick putting a hot knife through butter.
They really ought to use inert gas mixtures in US gas chambers, they're quick, totally painless and kill without any sense of suffocation or fighting for breath.
Micheal Portillo did a BBc documentary on this a few years ago. When he asked US people if they preffered the gas method most didn't as it no longer seemed like a punishment.
There seems to be 2 types of commentard in here
Person A wants a cheap no nonse phone that make calls and send/receive texts and maybe a quick game of snake, and there's a nice selection pf phones for them
Person B has money and wants all the blls and whistles, theres a phone for them as well.
Person A is a grumpy old git and can't understand why person B wants to spend so much money on a phone.
Person B is too busy down the pub with his mates to care what person A thinks, plus he has friends that he can call on his phone.
Let the down votes begin.
Not even close to DNA, which packs about 3 billion base pairs* into every cell in your body. 2 bits per base is 6 Gigabits or 0.75 Gigabytes. About 20,000 of these will be over 14TB which using blood cells would be about 2,000,000 cubic micro metres or 0.002 cubic millimetres. So not even close to a drop of blood yet.
It looks like the hub =! link, there are seperate apps in the play store for them and I haven't received any notification about my harmony ultimate being dscontinued. I might try diconnecting my internet tonight anbd see if it still works, just to see if it will.
It looks like a lot of people on here have bad experiences with logitech but mine is the opposite. I've got a keyboard and mouse still going after about 10 years and a harmony 525 which is still supported (yes I can still download remote codes) after more than 10 years.
Still shit for Link users though.
AFAIK from my A level days, each atom has a unified atomic mass that is slightly different from what would be expected from just adding up the number of protons and neutrons. Carbon 12 is used as the yard stick for measuring this and Hydrogen has a mass of approximatly 1.0078. If 12 Hydrogen atoms were combined there would be an excess of mass of 0.0936 which is turned into energy using E=MC^2. i.e. small mass change = HUGE energy, that's the easy part the tricky bit is controlling the fusion so you don't get all the energy at once, see icon -->
And that happens to currencies every day. None of them are backed by Gold any more.
And why would a currency backed by gold be any more valuable and stable? Gold itself has little intrinsic value as you can't eat it, wear it or make many useful things with it such as car or plane parts. It's value is only linked to it's shinyness and like all currencys it's only value is that which is collectivly assigned to it. In this sense BitCoins value is based on the same collective imagination as all other fiat currencies with the exception that the collective is currently much smaller. The future of BitCoin and other virtual currencies is in the size of the collective that believes in them.
