No problem here with Google Wifi. I have a Nest X Yale, Nest Secure, and Nest Connect (among other Nest devices). I'm not sure from your post, but is it actually causing your entire WiFi network to die, or are the Nest devices just dropping their connection?

when you got your nest yale lock did you have problems connecting it to the nest app? i just got 2 of them and havent been able to connect them to the app spent 4 hours with tech support and they couldnt figurer it out either. im about ready to return them i have awesome wifi 500 over 500 but i can connect the connect to the app but when i try the lock is fails cause it cant find the connect in the app even though it shows its there and working and connected to the wifi also have the nest secure and that is connected but still cant connect the lock .

I had no problem at all, but I had previously set up a Nest Secure (and a Nest Connect, but that is far away from the lock). You definitely need to have at least a Secure or a Connect added to your Nest account before trying to set up the Nest X Yale or it will not work. The Yale lock does not have its own WiFi connection. It needs one of those two devices to serve as a gateway.

AFAIK, Office365 does not have anything with burndown charts or story points integrated into it. Teams is actually great as a Slack (or Discord) competitor. Atlassian just shut down HipChat, which was their competitor in the chat and team collaboration space. IMO, Teams is much more powerful than Slack. It's also integrated with Skype (and will eventually replace it, according to Microsoft), so if you're already using Skype for Business, investigating Teams is worthwhile. That said, it's not directly a Scrum tool by any means. You can create a tab in a Teams channel that shows a Planner board, but that's about it. It also supports a bunch of other integrations that you may want to peruse.

Planner is a pretty good Kanban board app, but last I checked it does not support estimation, and it can't handle the additional metadata that a much more powerful tool like JIRA supports. If you're only using Trello currently, though, Planner may work. That said, it is not really an "enterprise" planning tool and would be horrible for that purpose IMO. You really would need JIRA for that. JIRA can be integrated into Teams at some level, though I've never played around with that myself.

Section 3 of their TOS is outrageous. Basically says they can take your money if they want to and you happen to be in a certain jurisdiction.

No one should use this service.

Do they have a list of jurisdictions that they've deemed "high risk" and any criteria they might use when deciding to add others? This seems absurdly vague to me.

Thanks! This is great and valuable information that I have yet to understand. Where can I get the full scoop on what running a node does for the ecosystem?

see more
2 points · 3 days ago

I don't know if a good, single source, unfortunately. Full nodes essentially maintain copies of the blockchain (though pruned nodes don't keep the whole thing after initial sync). They also relay transactions and blocks to the rest of the network. The most important thing for Bitcoin is for transactions and blocks to be broadcast to and among mining nodes, though, and all the big miners are connected with each other already. If your goal is to help the network, I would look into mining rather than simply running a node. However, that is more expensive and not profitable for individuals.

It might be longer than 18 months after all. It will take 41 years just to even open the channels on LN to serve the entire world with 1MB bocks, that is of course unless it becomes completely centralized with hubs. But the Cult of Core said that there would be no hubs and it was a lie by Roger Ver, so it musn't be true.

see more
11 points · 5 days ago

I'm just making fun of the 18 month promise. I don't think a usable, decentralized LN will ever happen for a multitude of reasons. From the blocksize cap preventing settlement to routing to loss of interest from the public and, finally, the actual design of LN itself which naturally encourages centralization through large, well-capitalized mega-hubs. Think what would happen on-chain if one of those large hubs decided to pack it in and close all their open channels. It would generate a ton of transactions to settle and then people would all have to open and find replacement channels. The network congestion on-chain alone, even with LN operating at a massive scale, makes the 1MB cap laughable.

The scientific thing to do would be to arbitrarily raise the block size and see what happens. It’s only a global immutable store of value, you know.. what’s the worst that could happen?

1 point · 5 days ago

That is just as bad as arbitrarily, and against all evidence of safety, keeping the blocksize cap at 1MB.

Look at the timing and the depth of the comments. bashco came back to that thread a day or two after he'd last posted and then decided to leave a comment like that on a comment that had nothing to do with him and was two levels deeper (and was a response to an obvious troll). The bashco account wouldn't have been notified of those replies. It seems odd that he'd come back for that dig.

This started out as an uncensored community before Bitcoin Cash split from Bitcoin. If you're unaware of it, r\bitcoin is heavily censored. Certain key words or phrases will cause automod to hide your post without notifying you (you can only find out by logging out and looking for your post). The mods also ban people for having opinions they don't like.

This community is not dedicated to BCH, but most people here prefer it because most people here supported on-chain scaling and were censored or banned in r\bitcoin.

CSW has been oddly precise about the cap unlike the rest. And extraordinary vocal about big data centers for mining and about the need to lock the base protocol. It's not proof of Satoshi, but that doesn't matter at all. The ideas do, he strongly fights for them and there are many who give support. What else to say, at the end of the day, whoever looses can fork and fade away in peace.

I'd say Cryddit was "oddly precise" about the reasoning, given that he claims to have been party to the conversation which also included Finney and SN. Given that this was publicly posted over a year before CSW emerged, the fact that he latched onto and related a plausible theory does absolutely nothing to provide any evidence that he is SN. You should not take it as such. What would be evidence of him being SN? Signing a message in public using SN's known private keys and/or moving those coins. He has done neither, even though he claimed to have done the first. If he really was SN, this would be trivial and he could have put the whole thing to rest. Instead, he failed just like any other person who is not SN would fail.

There are a few blockchain ETFs, which may not be what you're looking for but it's worth at least mentioning. If you are wealthy, you may be able to invest directly into private startups. That's about it right now that I'm aware of.

Oof, that is a big issue. I haven't used that feature, but I would definitely want it fixed. It does make me question what the added authentication supposedly needed to access those keys is doing of the desktop app could view the addresses without providing it.

The miners didn't oppose segwit , many merely wanted a HF after segwit and than decided to drop segwit2x when the community didn't show enough support

The exception to this is Bitmain and their partners did partially oppose segwit due to it undermining covert ASICBOOST, and wanted the HF to allow them more time in covert AB usage

The miners didn't oppose segwit

Yes they did, as only about 30% of them supported it on its own, meaning 70% of them opposed SegWit without a blocksize increase.

many merely wanted a HF after segwit

If that were the case, signalling for BU would not have reached near 50% prior to NYA/SegWit2X signalling beginning. But it did.

decided to drop segwit2x when the community didn't show enough support

Yup, SegWit2X was dropped due to "community" pressure that was manufactured by Blockstream, some Core devs, and social media manipulation. It was a great accomplishment.

44 points · 10 days ago

SegWit didn't do shit, and we knew before it was added through trickery that majority didn't want it as during the time of signaling, I think it got around 40% of miners in favor of it being added only.

I think it topped out around 30-35% miner support. BU signaling was higher. We only got SegWit due to the SegWit2X trojan horse.

So you can connect to XFinity with Project Fi?

2 points · 10 days ago

You have to set up their app and connect using your cable credentials. I have that set up for TWC/Spectrum and it can be nice to automatically connect to cable company hotspots.

Fi worked great for me in Chicago, though there are almost no open WiFi hotspots. That's not Fi's fault, and it really doesn't make a difference. The data service works well, and now with the bill protection, you basically have unlimited data if you need it for a flat rate. If you aren't in a contract and have a phone that will work already (or want to buy one) I don't see a reason not to try Fi. If you don't like it, just switch to something else. Any phone on Fi will work on other carriers.

Of course, nobody can see that post unless they are logged in as you...because it was censored ;)

Been reading a lot of these. So, does this sub talk about bitcoin? It feels really toxic. What is r/bitcoin censoring?

9 points · 12 days ago

They banned me after I responded to a question Erik Voorhees posed regarding the sub's change in atmosphere (becoming much more hostile). I said that what happened was the reason why nobody could tell him what happened (near-direct quote).

What happened, of course, was the censorship and banning campaign. Automod censors posts that use certain words (such as censorship) in that sub. Because my post referenced the idea of censorship without using one of the blacklisted words, it was not automatically censored. Instead, it was manually censored and I was banned.

-56 points · 12 days ago

You're a liar. There are plenty of people providing negative feedback on r/Bitcoin. Trolls who offer nothing constructive do get banned if they are trolling persistently. There have been 3 years worth of block size debates on r/Bitcoin, all culminating in the greatest technical progress that Bitcoin has seen in years, plus the creation of an altcoin with extremely low value by comparison, whose marketing is reduced to fraudulent representation of the facts surrounding the entire debate. You are also lying about the type of posts on r/Bitcoin as there are several bearish posts on the front page right now. But you have no right to complain about that while also complain about censorship unless you want to demonstrate your hypocrisy.

Why did you ban me for writing, "What happened to this sub is the reason nobody can tell you what happened to this sub"? Erik Voorhees had asked what happened to the sub to make it so hostile, and I was responding to him. That, apparently, was enough to get permanently banned by you.

EDIT: bashco apparently doesn't want to justify his ban. This is not the first time I've asked him to do so, either. I will just add here for other readers that in other interactions with him, I've found him to be very deceptive and dishonest. As you read his other comments in this thread, bear that behavior in mind.

I appreciate that and have also noticed from some initial research that product owners are paid $10,000/year more than Scrum Masters on average, and product managers even more than that. So I could see why they might view it as a step backwards in one's career path.

see more
2 points · 12 days ago

Depending on who you're talking to, a product owner would be an extremely high-level role within an organization. However, most of the time, "Product Owners" I encounter are mid-level managers who are barely involved and rarely educated as to what Scrum is and the role they're filling beyond the very basics. They actually report to someone else, or a committee, who makes the real product decisions. Other "Product Owners" I frequently see are actually Business Analysts with a new name because the company is now trying to do Agile, but can't be bothered to have managers or executives getting their hands dirty in the day to day process.

All that said, I would be aware of these patterns when job hunting so you can recognize what you may be jumping into.

My AC is the same, the AC circulation fan is in the middle of the house, the gas heating unit and the cool side of the heat exchanger also, obviously. But underneath that unit is open to under the house. And I thought that's where it is also drawing air in from.

I'll need to go under and look, because as I think about it, that would make the heating process a total waste, drawing cold air in from underneath.

I'll revert after I've dug around, this is a rental so I know little of what's under the house, it's nasty.

Edit: So I've looked at my setup again and you are all correct. AC fan is just recirculating air. With a tiny opening to the crawl space, I assume to help of anything gets blocked.

Does your house become pressurized if your fan is running with the windows and doors shut? If so, then I would guess that it is drawing in air from the outside. That would be an odd setup.
