    there are also people that use mining rigs as electric heating anyway so even if technically unprofitable they are still fine with that (as they would be paying for heating anyway).
    This has already been commercialized:

      Afaik for big EU countries it's like that. Energy production is subsidized. Apart from the obvious case of France with nuclear, you can see here Germany with coal/oil/gas. https://www.odi.org/sites/odi.org.uk...files/9954.pdf

      I don't think this translates to being unreliable, but I'm unsure of what he meant.
      Sorry, I should've been more clear, I meant the reliability part. Just sounded like one of those claims that 'Murica is the best'

Energy prices are not the same everywhere, there is a substantial amount of people just blowing money out of the window because they are stupid (gold rushes should provide plenty of evidence for that), and there are also people that use mining rigs as electric heating anyway so even if technically unprofitable they are still fine with that (as they would be paying for heating anyway).
        There are cold winters in the new Sovjet Union, EU. All heat that is generated in your living spaces, saves heating costs. When my kids says that their room feels cold, I say: play computer games. This works very well in a low energy house. The u-value of our walls is 0,17W/m² multi layer gas filled windows is 0,8W/m² and our ventilation machine recirculates 50% heat from the exhaust air.

          I had an interior office, once. When I would be working overnight and the heat was off, I could close my door and turn on my office mate's PC + CRT monitor. Our two computers were enough to warm the room, over a couple hours.

          As for home heating, fossil fuels are often a much more cost-effective option, due to poor efficiency of electric power generation and transmission. It's only if your electricity is subsidized by someone paying for the compute power that it would typically be cheaper. Michael effectively did something similar, by heating his house with his servers (with subscribers and advertisers subsidizing that heat).

            Hi everyone !
            For some reason, it see a huge performance DROP on the DESKTOP under both GNOME & KDE (Neon, Manjaro & Ubuntu) when using the 390.x drivers. Some animations are jerkier. For instance, when Gnome Shell appears, it's smooth with the former drivers and very laggy with the new ones. Under KDE, windows animations tend to lag as well. Any idea ?
            GTX 1060 GTX. Games are way faster though ; like 20 more FPS in TR, F1 2017...

            (windows animations are constantly butter smooth under KDE and GNOME with very slow intel hd....)
