I fully understand how switching from PoW to PoS saves a lot of wasting energy. But I fail to see how such a gated community creates intrinsic value.
Can someone explain to me how a centralised database with commit rights based on a certain amount of virtual fantasycoins being locked in resembles a decentralised blockchain? I simply fail to see it. #ethereum
Hell freezes over. #iFixit gives the new #Apple #IPhone 14 (not the Pro, not the Max) a huge thumbs up and repairability of 7 out of 10. And it’s well deserved, IMHO. Apple really did a good job. Nice! https://www.ifixit.com/News/64865/iphone-14-teardown
I have just learned - you need more than just an account. You also need to enrol in the "UPS My Choice" program. And to verify it is really you, they will send a letter with the PIN code. In 5-7 business days. So no chance to change the delivery options for tomorrow's parcel. Le sigh, UPS. Le sigh.
A lot of settings, but no way to set something like "deliver at front door". Hrmpf.
TIL - #UPS Germany does not care about delivery options (I want to give an OK for drop off as I will not be at home tomorrow) until *after* the first delivery attempt. Seems very inefficient to me.
And yes, far less people now die or become severely sick after infection. Thanks to vaccination. But still. Thousands of Munich people will get infected, forcing them to stay home. Not being able to work. THAT is going to hit hard in hospitals, schools over the next weeks.
With our current infection rates, in every bigger tent there are statistically 20 infected people spreading virus. The infection rates will definitely double in the next 7 days. We’ve learned that from other events in Bavaria.
