Is there an estimate out there on how many Bitcoins are just lost

some say almost 2/3 of current supply coins havent moved since 2017

either hodling pet digital rock power is strong, or like lots of people new to bitcoin (ie Peter Schiff) they lost their private key.

That's decent of them. Making a change not by crying and raging, but making a sacrifice for the sake of others.

Congrats on getting Dux son.
Dear daughter. It's been tough shining out from the shadow cast by the lad, but the headmistress was clear that it was a very tight race. You did extremely well to take out Proxime Accessit, and so gracious when your bestie got Dux. So awesomely proud of you - and to be fair, you won more scholarships and awards than him

Thumbs up

Had a team meeting today, which included a mystery presentation.

They had bought me a gift, and all signed a card to acknowledge the tough time after Dad passed.



Not just a bottle of whiskey, but TWO bottles, including a set with glasses.

GCs to work for!

Awesome! I'm super jealous.

Can I ask where you got it? I'm thinking of getting one after Christmas.

PBTech, went with the no controllers option, I'm just using it for sim racing for now but I'll pick up the controllers when they offer them for sale separately.

Pre-ordered in October expecting it to arrive mid January, so that was a nice surprise.

Ah, that makes sense. I need controllers.

Hopefully they'll arrive late Dec/early Jan.

What's your machine?

I caught up with my local Bros on the 25th, and it was mentioned that we really should have another crack at Dad's workshop so Mum can at least get in and out of her car without having to limbo through the maze of the two car laundry that acted as his resin casting, brass milling, model train setup.

I digging through a cabinet full of Elvis CDs I came across an original copy of The 7th Guest 2CD set - the game that burst onto the scene about the same time as Soundblaster2 and S3 video cards.

I managed to cripple my battle station enough to pretend it was a 486 from 1993 running something akin to Win3.11 and now I've spent the last couple of nights playing until midnight. Strange how you can remember how to solve a puzzle you last did almost 30 years ago. And all the time thinking Dad had to work the same stuff out in his dark office at the end of the house, lights off, and Creative Labs speakers honking out bad MIDI tunes.

I really miss the old bugger. Shit - he was my age now back then.

Makes me smile.

Had the privilege of partaking in the consumption of some kina at work today. First time eating it.

Id read somewhere that the taste was described to be like the taste of the ocean. Its not wrong but Id describe it as tasting like that first deep breath of fresh air when you jump out of the car at the beach on a warm sunny day. Then you get an after taste like crayfish.

Beautiful.

...and after the second round of post-grad admissions, all is well in the Universe.



One happy young lad at home. Awesomely he appears to have been checking his email in the office next to the front door Ring camera when a courier was dropping off a package - and I heard his excitement.
