I just discarded the original Thunder Badger.
A HP laptop bought somewhere in Hangzhou in 2009, it was given a 2nd life when I turned it into a Bitcoin + LN node.
It tirelessly validated blocks and maintained my channels for more than 2 years, with little to no downtime, until the very end.
You can be proud of yourself, little Thunder Badger, you've been up to your duty.
Now rest in peace.
Talked about True Names to an anarcap friend of mine, he had no idea about it but sent me this pic when he got home, he actually bought the book a long time ago and totally forgot about it.
It's virtually unknown in France, I wonder if I could find a publisher willing to give me some good money to translate it in french. Probably not 😅 #sciencefiction #cypherpunks #literature
Look at the last paragraph, CSW's bullshit is getting out of control :
"The nature of Hydra that Theymos wanted was as a mechanism to have children exchange hard drugs for pornographic photographs. They sought to alter Bitcoin to allow the distribution of encrypted child pornography that would be exchanged in schools for Fentanyl"
Imo Craig just hasn't realized yet it's not Twitter anymore, imagine saying stuff like that without laughing 😂
