New Server My trusty Asus TS10 Atom x5 Z8350 which has powered this webserver since 2018 was replaced by the ultra golden RGB monstrosity Dell Optiplex 3020 SFF Treasure Box today. I could not pass up this ridiculous purchase, and upon arrival it felt perfect for serving up nonsense on the interwebs. The new server eats up 20 watts, vs the old TS10 which only pulled 5 watts. The RGB and golden bling are well worth the wattage increase obviously, and the impressive hardware upgrades are a nice bonus. Surf confidently, knowing your packets are being generated on the most gawdy PC available on this planet.

With the recent explosion of Ethereum cryptocurrency, I've upped my GPU game to a 2080 and 3 1060s for a total of 104 MH/s @ 500 watts. That currently nets me $700/month, which is nuts. I can't get any more GPUs since I refuse to pay 200% over MSRP for one, so I decided to add the proof-of-space crypto Chia. I have plenty of old hard drives to fill up with plotting, so my recently converted to integrated graphics primary PC has been assigned to the cause. While not nearly as profitable, it's enjoyable to see all drives hit 100% utilization while plotting as fast as I can.

After retiring my previous mining rig 3 years ago, ETH values have again risen to the point where mining is at least entertaining if not exactly profitable again. With a spare 1060 6GB video card not doing much else, I decided to join in on the fad again. This time a quick Google search yielded the perfect settings for maximum hashrate. Since my system is stable I'm not even bothering with a dedicated machine, it will just slowly mine away and just like last time I refuse to invest in any more hardware.

With my ISP upping my monthly fee another $5/month, I decided it was time to see if I could survive without them for a month. After cancelling service for a month, I get discounted "promotional" rates saving $25 / month. I'm happy to say the experiment worked perfectly with my router picking right up after I swapped connection to my phone hotspot. It even updated the DDNS IP address for this webserver. Android 11 recently added the Ethernet sharing which makes this possible, so after a few more trial runs I'm ready to destroy my "unlimited" data plan for a month and get back into the promotional pricing party.

With my beautiful GLAS thermostat having now served me well for over 2 years, it was disappointing (but understandable) that JCI has decided to discontinue the device. I immediately bought a cheap backup in case one fails in the future, but realized if support is ending I'd best get the latest firmware update now while it's still available. The micro USB port on the thermostat seems to provide power, but won't turn on the thermostat, so I was forced to use the 24v wires from my existing thermostats. Being lazy, I decided to use uninsulated wires to extend the HVAC wires so I didn't have to uninstall my existing thermostat. Of course they shorted, and of course it cut all power. I quickly discovered the 3 amp fuse my heat pump has to protect against idiots such as myself, and replaced it with a 5 amp I had on hand (3 amp on order). After my electrical adventure, the new thermostat finally booted up and revealed a rather old firmware version. A quick firmware update and factory reset later, and it's now on the latest firmware. I disconnected my Frankenstein wiring and packed it back into the original box in case I need it in the future. Hopefully JCI provides connectivity beyond the life of my current thermostats.

Less than a week after securing my prized possession, I couldn't resist pocketing the $300 profit potential. Within an hour of listing my Xbox Series X for $799 it was sold for that ridiculous price. I'm expecting mid-April before they are back in stock at the regular MSRP, but I'm OK with waiting that long since my Xbox One X has all the horsepower I need for my current projectors limitations. Now I'm left eyeing my Series S which is selling for a $150 premium currently. If I sell both now I can effectively get one for MSRP when it's back in stock and only be out $50.
