  • You're out of your mind, COVID 19 has provided me with the best time of my life because everyone has to stay 6 feet away from everyone else. That's helps reduce my PTSD in every way, It's a dream come true and I'm not about to spoil that by looking for a cure. Finally something has come along that makes every mental patient in this nut ward called the west stay 6 feet away. That keeps me from wanting them to be 6 feet below.

  • 4:40 as a Brit electrician I find that mad lol, like 3kw to you guys is 27amps, but to us its only 12amps. Almost all of our home home/office sockets are protected by 32A breakers at 240v so we get 7.7kw max power before the breaker trips. Also we all get the same consumer 110-240v rated PSU's globally, I've noticed the efficiency ratings are a fair bit lower for you guys so you have to use slightly more powerful PSU's than we need.

  • Technically, breakers DO go above 1600 watts - but not as a highly common thing in the US/Canada (I think Mexico as well). 20 amp 117 VAC circuit can go over 2300 watts intermittent, 234 circuits normally START at over 3KW (and modern computer power supplies work on 234 FINE). Most COMMON home outlets though are 15 Amp 117 VAC. The overload issues that the Folding@Home project had for a couple weeks seem to have been addressed at this point - I've been having my rigs (I'm a fairly long time FAH heavy hitter) get work consistently for the last couple days. And yes, I've not had to turn on an actual HEATER for a few years now. 8-)

  • its an unstable virus which mutated from animals to humans, then mutated from killing only those over 60 some to killing those over 40, and you can catch it more than once. the danger is in the next possible mutation. and that you can catch it again. imagine if humans lifespan suddenly reduced to 40 years old because everyone always had corona.... wait a minute... cancer already does that.... was cancer originally a virus?
