Google Pixel 2 – Red light comes on and stops working

That’s right my phone, pictured below. Left it on charge overnight. Shortly after I got up in the morning, whilst it was still on charge, the red light came on and started flashing and the picture of the battery sign came on the screen.

Checked the Google Support website. “The battery is fully discharged. Re-charge for at least 30 minutes then re-try”.

I knew this was not the case, because it had been on charge, and when I checked the cable, it was attached securely.

So…. The phone had just stopped working.

How a bitcoin is made

How a bitcoin is made

Something to start the day about bitcoin mining.

August 17, 2017

One of the world’s largest bitcoin mines is located in the SanShangLiang industrial park on the outskirts of the city of Ordos, in Inner Mongolia, an autonomous region that’s part of China. It’s 400 miles from China’s capital, Beijing, and 35 miles from the the city of Baotou. The mine is just off the highway, near the intersection of Latitutde 3rd Road and Longitude 3rd Road. It sits amidst abandoned, half-built factories—victims of an earlier coal mining boom that fizzled out, leaving Ordos and its outlying areas littered with the shells of unfinished buildings.

The mine belongs to Bitmain, a Beijing-based company that also makes mining machines that perform billions of calculations per second to try and crack the cryptographic puzzle that yields new bitcoins. Fifty Bitmain staff, many of them local to Ordos, watch over eight buildings crammed with 25,000 machines that are cranking through calculations 24 hours a day. One of the buildings is devoted to mining litecoin, an ascendant cryptocurrency. The staff live on-site in a building with a dormitory, offices, a canteen, and a repair center. For recreation, they play basketball on an unfinished cement court.

Bitcoin mining consumes enormous amounts of electricity, which is why miners seek out locations that offer cheap energy. The Ordos mine was set up in 2014, making it China’s oldest large-scale bitcoin mining facility. Bitmain acquired it in 2015. It’s powered by electricity mostly from coal-fired power plants. Its daily electricity bill amounts to $39,000. Bitmain also operates other mines in China’s remote areas, like the mountainous Yunnan province in the south and the autonomous region of Xinjiang in the west.

The biggest hacks of 2016 – A year in hacking

The biggest hacks of 2016 – A year in hacking

In case you didn’t know, in amongst the celebrity deaths, and the unraveling of the NWO bandwagon, 2016 was also a bumper year for hackers. Some of the biggest and most audacious hacks in history took place in 2016, including the hacking of the US elections, and the Mirai botnet DDOS attack, which took down some of the biggest sites on the internet including Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.

There have been the largest hacks of personal information in history. Also in 2016. Names such as Yahoo, with billions of accounts compromised.

So here’s my little run-down.

2016 – A year in hacking.

Adultfriendfinder hack

5) Adultfriendfinder hack – November 14th, 2016

Friend Finder Network Inc is a company that operates a wide range of 18+ services and was hacked in November of 2016 for over 400 million accounts representing 20 years of customer data.

A list of sites verified and how many affected accounts and a brief description:

  • Adultfriendfinder.com
    339,774,493 users
    “World’s largest sex & swinger community”
  • Cams.com
    62,668,630 users
    “Where adults meet models for sex chat live through webcams”
  • Penthouse.com
    7,176,877 users
    Adult magazine akin to Playboy
  • Stripshow.com
    1,423,192 users
    Another 18+ webcam site
  • iCams.com
    1,135,731 users
    “Free Live Sex Cams”
  • Unknown domain
    35,372 users

Total: 412,214,295 affected users

Most of the passwords hacked from the Friendfinder network were stored either as plain text, or lightly encrypted, (in the SHA1 protocol).

Once the accounts were modified and the encrypted passwords hacked, they were made available for sale on the Darkweb.

Here’s a list of the passwords most commonly used:-
