Question about LED lighting.

I would like to buy LED tape without a coating or rubber sheath, so I can glue it to a heat sink.

There are grow light tape such as this:

and there is universal light tape such as this

The universal light is about half the price, but it is about 5W per meter, while the grow lights are 12W per meter.

So, obviously the price comes out as basically a bust, as you need two meters of universal for every one meter of growlight. To me, that means the light gets spread out better, but other than that, the cons are that there is more work to set up (double), double the heat sink if I want to jam more power through it, and I have to program the universal to be the right color, and likely this would reduce their total output even more..

So I guess I talked myself into getting the grow lights, not the universal.

It's totally cracking me up to see liberals posting libertarian memes. They are even talking tax evasion and secession!

Too freaking funny. Libertarians are sitting here like, "we fucking told you so"

Liberals have learned exactly zero lessons from this election.

Bitcoin Quietly Rages On While Traditional Currency Market Implodes
It’s been a year since I argued that bitcoin was too big to fail, but it has only got stronger. And yet, you don’t have to look far to find a new death knell for the digital currency.

These prognostications may be loud and frequent but each is more wrong than the last. For instance, December found many asking whether bitcoin was dead only to be faced with a rally that saw the digital currency cross the $1,000 mark. We saw similar rallies following the Brexit vote and U.S. election when bitcoin became a safe haven in the face of geopolitical risk that brought the security of our most trusted fiat currencies into question.

I would trust a site like this to verify government claims about the origin of the hack. Unfortunately that didn't happen

Overall Conclusion

The IP addresses that DHS provided may have been used for an attack by a state actor like Russia. But they don’t appear to provide any association with Russia. They are probably used by a wide range of other malicious actors, especially the 15% of IP addresses that are Tor exit nodes.

The malware sample is old, widely used and appears to be Ukrainian. It has no apparent relationship with Russian intelligence and it would be an indicator of compromise for any website.

Alright, I give up. I'm reading article after article from news sources all over.

Who can link me to any actual public evidence of who hacked Podesta emails.

Actual evidence. Otherwise you are just trusting the same idiots who said Saddam had WMDs and ties to Al Qaeda. Which he didnt, and the anti-war left was actually asking for evidence at the time.

We were told to trust them because "obviously" they had information that we couldn't have.

Have we not learned that those are the times, specifically, when they should be supplying evidence publicly? No "Obama said so" isn't near good enough. Neither is "NSA said so". And no, neither is "12 government organizations said so"

So, I'm all ears. Someone point me to the actual evidence...please.

Question: when it is no longer profitable to mine BTC, how/why will transaction verification (mining) continue?
