Well saturday was a tad warm.
 
just a little bit
 
We stayed indoors for some of the afternoon and watched Glasto.

Hi @Snow

I wish to seek your suggestions regarding a recent edit on this answer:

https://workplace.stackexchange.com/posts/139465/revisions
I wish to differentiate between the content quoted from the question and text which is part of the answer.
How can that be done without confusing someone reading the answer?
 
7:19 AM
What you have now is fine. The previous code block makes things difficult to read.
 
7:30 AM
Morning working people
 
morning everyone
you're starting to get used to your new role? or still hard.
 
 
1 hour later…
8:45 AM
@Snow yeah to say the least.. when I got home later on in the evening the house was seriously stuffy and sticky - not fun!
@Snow verdict on Austria? I thought it was a nice retort to the tedium of France
 
Yes, Austria had everything that France didn't. I was hooked all the way through. Certainly helped that HAM has issues.
 
9:36 AM
Anyone know why my display port cable alone doesn't connect my pc to my monitor?
I have to use a hdmi to connect my pc to my monitor even though it has a display port slot
PS never built or worked with a PC, I just work in development so don't rule out any simple solutions
 
Have you tried using the on-screen controls on the monitors to tell them what input to use?
 
Yep, the only options are hdmi 1 or hdmi 2
and I don't even have a second hdmi connected to my monitor so
and my second monitor isn't being detected by my pc at all. I have a hdmi lead from the monitor into the pc. Go into window settings and detect second monitor and it just says can't detect
 
@Snow agreed, I did feel for Hamilton, he was really pulling out all the stops in the push before he pitted and without that unfortunate wing-kerb interface I thing he might have been able to save a podium. From what I've read Merc were really struggling with engine temps
 
Even with the new front bumper, he still couldn't get up to pace. He didn't even go for the fastest lap.
 
@Snow yeah 2nd half of the race both mercs looked to be struggling for anything resembling pace
 
9:57 AM
Still, it was a good race to be my last one watching in UHD.
 
10:09 AM
@Snow a fitting send off indeed :D
 
10:36 AM
@Kepotx that's ok. It's fun being able to see behind the scenes :p
 
Nimesh is the new sourav or gregorycurie
Answering every question possible, I can see a 10k rep being hit relatively soon
 
 
2 hours later…
12:24 PM
I think I may have just made the biggest mistake of my life ;_;
 
1:17 PM
@Twyxz ?
 
@Twyxz ?
 
@Twyxz ?
I may have just invested 20k into a crypto currency and I'm having heart palpitations as it moves and it's only at 30p per token. So if it was at like 1000 a token, I'd be seeing hundreds of thousands worth of changse every second
But I'm addicted to checking it O.o
PS I somehow have an insurance quote for £1000 no black box on the focus ST
and a 500 on the clio
 
@Twyxz that's pretty good @ 20 :)
@Twyxz 20k is a big chunk of change
 
65k Ripple tokens I now hold @motosubatsu "change"
If it reaches bitcoin current levels (big IF) I'm looking at 645 million... I think I just lost control of emotion and saw an unrealistic goal and invested :O
I'd also be seeing up to 50 million change a day, one day up one day down. I don't think I'd be able to physically or mentally handle that
hence why I think it's the biggest mistake ever
 
1:32 PM
@Twyxz they sit in pretty different niches so I doubt it will ever get to bitcoin levels of value - still I would never have predicted bitcoin to get to that!
 
And here's me, just working to pay the bills and hoping I get a bit left over each month...
 
@Snow oh hi there. same here :p
I have car works to do and my relatives pressure me to buy a house. But I don't want to (yet)! It's such a big deal!
 
@motosubatsu Ripples infrastructure is heads and shoulders above pretty much any other Crypto in the world and not only that. It beats Visa to every single attribute but proven to work in a live environment
so I'd say it's a reasonable investment
I'm thinking it will reach about 1000 if it is adopted by a few banks around the world
Although of course it could just plummet and I lose 20k in a night but yeh
stupid investment at that risk but it's done :(
 
@avazula Yeah, I get you. My mother pressured me into getting a property early on. I'm thankful I did that because I never could just a few years later.
 
In my situation I'm being told never to buy :///
 
1:36 PM
it certainly offers an "official" air that bitcoin never did (IMO) with the way it's set up with the company etc but it absolutely hinges on banks and similar institutions taking it up
 
@motosubatsu that's exactly it. Other than adoption, there's no other way
 
@Snow :/ that's not reassuring me haha
@Twyxz it really depends on the country you're living in honestly.
 
@Twyxz surprising given you've easily got a deposit kicking about - which is by the far the hardest hurdle
 
@motosubatsu It's all about cash flow and not tying up your money in one place
 
@Twyxz the not tying up I get.. cashflow.. not so much. If I were your age with 20k in the bank I'd be sticking that into a deposit and buying somewhere in a flash
 
1:40 PM
@motosubatsu yeah I honestly don't understand, but all the "gurus" and my mentor included all say it's not the way to go so I guess follow what the best are doing?
For me the main reason I'm not buying is because I'd rather invest the money and just rent if I was to move out. Because I'm always going to come out much better off than having a savings account or depositing for a house
 
@Twyxz probably depends on what you're attitude to risk is - buying property is very risk averse. But unlike previous some recent generations you don't stand to gain big
@Twyxz personally I bought purely for the long term security, but that said most of the people I know who are decently well off have done that through property, at least in part.
I'm not saying your mentor is wrong or anything - nor am I looking to try and convert you or anything :)
 
That's my next venture, increasing income streams slowly but I need to make sure Vertex is solid without the need of my support
Don't want to rush into something else until this one is a certain "stream" rather than just a quick drizzle
 
tbh I also got sick of living in other people's places :)
@Twyxz and that's eminently sensible :)
 
Well atm I'm hardly home so it's just hotel life
So buying and renting is kinda pointless, hence why I'm technically still "living" at home
 
I can understand that
 
1:47 PM
I really wanna do real estate and transfer into affiliate marketing and amazon PBA instead of dropshipping but I can't until the rest have been scaled
Otherwise I'm making 3-5 terrible streams instead of 2-3 good ones
