    That... I mean, honestly, that just raises more questions.

    I mean I say shed but it's got insulation, fridge, freezer, toaster, microgroove, internet so shed may not of been the best word but it's technically a shed.

    Magically appeared now in your original and my quote.

    But all i saw was "(IMG)" although with square brackets and no picture - just the text. Was like that all day on my mobile as well as at home, different ISPs. Like I said, fixed now though.

    Did it have the url to the image inside the tag or between them?

    Nope just the first bbcode tag displayed as text, no anything else.

    Next time it happens on a computer PM me the console of your browser. That's a very odd thing to happen

    Worked out what it is.

    I recently changed it so that instead of my router's DHCP handing out 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 as it's DNS directly to clients, I'd have the router hand out itself, so I can insert my own DNS names, and then set it to upstream to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

    However it appears it's instead using the DNS provided by my ISP, which is in fact SafeDNS.

    And they are intermittently blacklisting various sites. I found this out looking at a sale post, in which tinypic is blocked.

    The text I was seeing is the alt image text i.e.

    Code:
    <img url="whatever" alt="[IMG]" />

    Glad you've got to the bottom of it. Very interesting. Just shows how important a free and open DNS is. Also why I don't use my ISPs DNS.

    Biostar is now trying to take fleecing mining noobs to the next level by selling complete mining rigs:

    https://www.techpowerup.com/244318/biostar-announces-iminer-series-turnkey-mining-solutions

    The "top of the line" one promises an eth hashrate of 220MH/s from around £2k "worth" of hardware.
    With that hashrate you are looking at making approx £8.50 a day.
    Even if we assume the impossible scenario of the profit not dropping and no fees to turn the mined coins into usable currency and free electricity it would still take 230 days to pay off the hardware.
    Which means once you add those factors back in you'd never break even.

    At 1600W (8x 570s, Tom's pegs them at 200W each under max load, so 1600W is right on the edge). If you shop around 14p/kWh is not unreasonable, so that's £5.38 per day of constant load, netting you a little over £3 per day in mining profit. Sure, there's resale value, but that will drop precipitously as new hardware is released (if you're not hitting the 'new standard' of hash/W then you need to be getting your electricity for free for it to be worthwhile).

    200w per card is severely lacking some optimization. It's horrid! You can get them down to 125w with the same or better hash with ease.

    Doesn't matter, even tweaked you'd be looking at 400+ days to pay off the hardware and that is still reliant on the unrealistic idea that difficulty will remain low enough to make anything above running costs for that long.
    And what resale value will a heavily used RX 570 have in 2020? Even just £5 would be a very charitable assumption.

    Current ETH difficulty would get you around £200 a month @ 200 MH/s, depending on your electricity costs that's not too bad. I built an 8x GTX1070 rig a few months ago that does 227 MH/s and pulls under a KW/h.

    You guys still profiting from mining? I find it much easier just to buy some at the bottom of a crash then sell it high when the bear market starts and scoop up a **** load of coin when it drops in price. Probably get far more coin per month doing that.
    Like £200 worth of coin can be gained most days in a bear market. <3 Bear market.
