Out of sheer boredom, I have created a cryptocurrency. Here's the spec:

PiCoin (PCN)

Totally pointless crypto-homage to the circle.

Block target of 3.14 minutes
Block payout of π3.14159265359
Coin Maximum 314,159,265
Difficulty adjusts daily
120 confirms

Windows users will have to build from source

Gotta say, it was fun. I do need people to download and mine with it though.

If you're interested here's a link to the source code:

Jet Noise

Howdy.... I'm back to my old self and pissed off again.

Today's irritation is the whining all over the Burlington, VT area about the Government wanting to base F-35's at the airport here. They're all up in arms about the noise, all the while we're listening to F-16's fly about 3 times a day, every day. To me it doesn't seem like it's really going to change the level of jet noise around here much anyway.

There are petitions floating around trying to refuse the aircraft. As if telling the government that you don't want them to upgrade equipment is really going to do any good anyway. Beyond that, WHY THE FUCK would you argue with putting our guys in better shit? Seems like borderline retardation to me. If we've got to have a military and play big brother, we might as well have the most bad-ass shit on earth too.

Personally, I like the fighter craft around here. Damn things look like fun. I would like a change of scenery though.

To that end I have created my own petition supporting the 35's here. Sign it if you agree.

We love jet noise!
