Re: Bitcoin

So Flexo, you're trying to convince me that "bitcoin" or "bitcon" as my cousin ( who's probably made in excess of €20.000.000) using his own money, terms it, has the same fundamental value as gold, diamond or oil , i doubt that and I hope you haven't over exposed yourself in the...

Re: Bitcoin

A commodity is a concept, so it is a virtual commodity and not a virtual currency. It is overvalued yes, but not because it is worthless but because there are other cryptocoins that are better. Big difference. Investors and so called experts that claim it is worthless either have no clue what they a...

Re: Bitcoin

Again, of course bitcoin does not have any treasury backing because it isn't a currency, it is a commodity. An investment banker that doesn't understand the difference between a commodity and not a currency maybe should get a new job. Besides, almost no currency on the planet are backed by commoditi...

Re: Bitcoin

You cannot convert them, you can sell them. The regulations regarding Bitcoin trading is different in different countries. I think here in Spain you will need to file information about the buyer and include it in your tax return but that is just what I have noticed other sellers do here in Spain. Yo...

Re: Bitcoin

Mining bitcoins has been economically dead since 2013, it now costs more energy than what you can possibly get back. My advice to n00bs is to start with small purchases, never store large amounts in online wallets, and never keep too large amounts in the same wallet. Make backups of large wallets an...

Re: Norwegian Air

Not codswallop, simple physics if you have a 200 seat aircraft carrying 100 passengers and they all decide to sit on one side of the plane you will overstress the airframe and probably cause severe inflight problems, weight distribution, not rocket science !! Exactly, if you fly with a really small...

Re: Bitcoin

Bitcoin can be used for various things, including web purchases and in many countries stuff like cab rides, beer etc. However, it is not a currency, it is an electronic commodity, more like virtual gold than virtual dollars. It does not have a pre-defined value and there is a max limit on the number...

Re: Why is the ground around Olive trees kept bare ?

Done correctly and with biological control you can get a decent production without pesticides, the problem is you need to know what you are doing and you have to accept a lower yield. It is not for beginners and you need to employ consultants to help you out.

If you have big windows you should consider a safety persiana with break-in resistance. Makes burglary much more difficult.

Re: AP7

If you don't go on the AP7 and just exit onto the A7 it's only three or four minutes longer in journey. Not sure what you mean here, maybe if you exit right before Marbella it is only a few minutes but if you are going towards central Marbella it has to be more than a few minutes, I remember last t...

Re: Why is the ground around Olive trees kept bare ?

Modern intenso uses full fertigation in the drip lines, that is 100% of the fertilizers needed that are injected with the water, so there is no need for a healthy, living soil in the area from a production standpoint. By eliminating the all plants in between the lines they make it easier to control ...

Re: Unplugging during thunderstorms?

I don't think any of the surge protectors available on the market will save you from a close lightning strike. If you are dependent on your electronic equipment you should unplug it if the thunder is nearby.
