I watched Auburn beat College of Charleston. I then watched a portion of them getting stomped by Clemson. That's more college basketball than I've watched in years.

So, guess I haven't been around in a while. I tend to mostly browse here when I'm on my desktop...which hasn't been a ton the past couple of months.

My wife and I went to Iceland for a long weekend a few weeks ago. That was fun. Our first time out of the country since going to the DR 3 years ago. Not sure when we'll get to go abroad next.

Went to a bachelor party this past weekend for a college friend. About a dozen guys...we rented a beach house in Jacksonville. They went a strip club the first night (I opted out). The second evening, we played a 7-person $10 STT...which I was happy to win. On the third morning, we went to a place called Top Golf that was quite cool. It's basically a high-tech driving range. Think bowling crossed with golf. Anyway, I could see myself actually going to one a few times a year if there was one closer. I got ahold of a few balls initially. Considering it had been many many years since I'd hit a golf ball, I was happy to be competitive - even if my brother crushed everyone.

Spring break is this week, so looking forward to grinding out some poker while my wife's not working. Also have an interview for a remote full-time job, so that should be interesting.

So BTC, huh? Let me know when it's a good time to jump on. I wonder how low it's going to get.

Are there any secondary currencies and seem poised to step up and replace BTC? I want to get in on the ground floor.
I'm reluctant to use the phrasing "the next Bitcoin", because it's so over-used, but I do think that we've identified one that fills that role. I would not generally advise people to invest heavily directly in BTC anymore. I think you're much better off in ETH if you want a strong base currency. With that said, NANO (formerly RaiBlocks/XRB) really is poised to take over from Bitcoin eventually. After an explosive "start" in December, it has largely moved sideways since due to the overall market and a few exchange hiccups, and it's a long journey ahead, but it should have some legs. Being in the crypto space, it's actually exciting to play with it...and simple. Transactions are fee-less and near-instant (probably 3-5 seconds on average). I've gotten a ton of people on the train...and I keep trying to cram more on when I can. I rarely shill, but if there was a time to do it, this seems like it.

We haven't had our year end reviews yet but my boss said in a meeting the other day that we all got pretty good reviews. Now all I can do is wait to find out if there's any raise associated with a pretty good review for a mid-year hire.

brv, here’s a better guide:

If you want to use my referral links for KuCoin or Binance though, I would appreciate it.
