Looking to get an IT related job with reasonable pay. What's the best way to get there?
Hello! So for a bit of background, I went to a local community college and earned my Computer Science Associate degree in spring 2017. Since then I've applied and interviewed at multiple companies and I have yet to receive a job offer. I worked at a small manufacturing company during college and I currently work at a high school doing non tech work. I love working here but it simply does not pay enough for me to meet my goals. I have plenty of non formal tech experience. I used to develop video games as a hobby. My college professor temporarily hired me to help develop a virtual reality application. I was contracted to teach Scratch to school age children. I've worked on websites for multiple small businesses. I've setup and ran servers of multiple types (minecraft, bitcoin mining, website), I've helped build multiple gaming PCs and I'm the go to guy when friends and family need help with their computers. Anyways, based on my education, work history and experience, what do you think my best way into the IT field would be? I'm hoping to land a job that pays upwards of $19 per hour and I'm interested in most areas of IT. I live in the california north bay area. Thanks!
Could the process of mining be turned into a graphical system? Say, like mining for parts in Minecraft or NMS actually is using hashing power to break down the “blocks” to create Bitcoin or some new currency? I dunno how computers work (I’m in tech sales), so if that’s dumb, forgive me.

Introducing 'MineCoin': a Minecraft-based Bitcoin 'mining' competition. For our beta test, we're giving away >80 mBTC.
Hi folks, I'd like to introduce a project that we've been working on called MineCoin. MineCoin is a Minecraft-based tournament game for mining gold ore blocks that are redeemable for Bitcoins (BitOre blocks). These tournaments are pay-to-play (in BTC) with the pooled entry fees making up the total number and value of BitOre in the game. For our open Beta test, we're giving away >80 mBTC worth of BitOre. We only have 25 available player slots that are filled on a first come, first served basis. If you don't get in the top 25, we'll put you in the queue in case someone drops out. The Beta test is scheduled for 9 pm (GMT+10) on the 21st of June (20 hours away at the time of this posting). We are really after your feedback and suggestions, so feel free to drop them in the comments below. Thanks!
Hello, We’re upgrading our anarchy server from 1.16.1 to 1.16.3 and want to come up with a list of “safe” minecraft hacked clients. I can easily check that these support 1.16.3 — but if you have any evidence that any of these do anything sketchy like mine bitcoins or send your info to a Chinese botnet, please lmk. List of Hacked Clients with 1.16.3 Support
U.S. House hints at Big Tech breakup A House antitrust subcommittee report due this week on big tech - Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) - is hinting toward breaking up the tech giants, according to a lawmaker in the GOP minority. “This proposal is a thinly veiled call to break up Big Tech firms. We do not agree with the majority’s approach,” says Republican congressman Ken Buck in a draft response seen by Reuters. He says he shares Democratic concerns about the companies' market power, but objects to requiring them to pursue a clear "single line of business." Cisco ordered to pay $1.9B in patent infringement case Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) has been ordered to pay $1.9B in a patent infringement case. The U.S. district judge said the case was “not a close call,” ruling that Cisco infringed four patents belonging to Centripetal Networks but didn’t infringe on a fifth. The award includes $755.8M in actual damages, multiplied by 2.5 to reflect “willful and egregious” conduct from Cisco plus prejudgement interest. Cisco plans to appeal. Warner Bros. delays 'The Batman' to 2022; postpones 'Flash,' 'Shazam 2' Warner Bros. (NYSE:T) delayed Dune until October 1, 2021 and shifted The Batman starring Robert Pattinson until March 4, 2022. The studio pulled Black Adam (starring Dwayne Johnson) and Minecraft from the release calendar. The newest sequel to The Matrix film series made the rare leap forward, from April 1, 2022 to Dec. 22, 2021. The Flash will move from June to November in 2022, and Shazam 2 leaves November 2022 for June 2, 2023. Southwest Airlines asks workers to accept pay cuts in lieu of furloughs Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) is asking its union workers to accept pay cuts for the first time, to help the company avoid its first furloughs and/or layoffs. The company wants pay cuts on the table to avoid furloughs/layoffs through the end of next year. The passing of an Oct. 1 deadline tied to $25B the industry received in aid means struggling airlines are considering layoffs, and Southwest rivals United Airlines (NASDAQ:UAL) and American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) have gone ahead with more than 32,000 cuts. Australian miner Northern Star offers to buy Saracen Mineral in A$5.7B deal Northern Star Resources (OTCPK:NESRF) has agreed to acquire smaller Australian rival Saracen Mineral Holdings (OTCPK:SCEXF) in a A$5.76B (US$4.14B) deal that will create a new top 10 global gold miner according to its ~A$16B in market valuation. Northern Star will own 64% of the combined entity and Saracen will own the remaining 36%. The deal comes after the two mining companies each acquired 50% stakes in Australia's giant KCGM operation, commonly known as the Super Pit, Australia's largest open cut gold mine.

Heres some proof about sigma not being a trojan and omikron client proof from the sigma creator andro
The high GPU usage is due to the GPU acceleration or the UIs. And this is not comparable to other person's GPU usage since every GPU behave differently. You can compare this usage with vanilla 1.15.2's GPU usage. In my personal case, it's about +1~8% higher. And the overall performance loss over the 1.8 clients is due to the 1.15 itself, the heavy UI, the missing optimisations (performance update soon), the obfuscation, etc Some people are saying that "conhost.exe" is a malware... It's actually the console process spawned by java.exe which is used by Sigma (instead of the javaw.exe, the window version of java.exe without the console, that is mostly used for Minecraft). Fun fact: Badlion client and Lunar client are also spawning conhost, and they aren't getting called out as malwares. Here's a great explanation of what it is: https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/4996/what-is-conhost.exe-and-why-is-it-running/ And Omikron client was not a bitcoin miner, here's the copypasta :
Omikron client didn't have any btc miner / rat / botnet or whatever. The thing running in background was a system to validate the usage of the auto alt / proxy from other computers. Therefore, if you used auto alt / auto proxy, your computer among others validated in some sort of P2P the usage of alts / proxies. If >50% of computers says that a "transaction" is good, it was validated. Omikron decided to do that to counter the abuse of auto alt / auto proxy. But ofc you could disable that autorun in Omikron Client's setting. And it was clearly written in the client that it would autorun (but no body really read it) if you use auto alts / auto proxy.
Edit, another copypasta:
I know, this is missleading. In the code, finding alts is refenrenced as "mining" them because you have this usepass combo and sometime yay ! Its a working minecraft alt ! The whole problem about all this drama is that its old code written when the client was "ghost client" and putting it in a .m file intead of .minecraft, having the package not named omikron, not using omikron domain name in the code was a good idear to prevent memory scanning cheating software such as BLSquad to find "omikron" but as you can tell it has bring more trouble that anything. You shoudn't be scared, your cpu isn't and wont be used to mine crypto or any unwanted activity and you will soon be able to chose if you want the service to run. In the next release, beside the fact that all of this was moved to .minecraft/Omikron, using proper domain name etc, you will be able to choose if you are using the client and want the background service running to find alts or if you have the client installed but not using it you will be able to disable the background service.
The video that is spreading about Omikron client is only proving that it downloads an autorun, and runs it in the background, which is intended. Be careful of people trying to spread that Sigma could be a virus. Most of the time, they're made up by people who are clueless and don't know about what they're talking about (ex: conhost).
Helping a loved one find himself after years of dedicating his life to stuff he doesn't feel passionate about. HELP PLEASE
Hi reddit! So a lilttle back story: I met my (19F) boyfriend (21M) last year. At that time, he was really questioning whether or not he should give up on is major. In the meantime, he failed some classes due to the lack of motivation. Now, he's basically doing one year worth of classes in one semester and it's taking a tool on him
- So how does this relate to his depression?
Well, eversince he entered university he hasn't felt passionate about what he's studying. Some people may be able to live with this but he is a very curious and smart individual and, therefore, learning new subjects and having side projects are essential for is mental well being. A few nights ago, we were in bed and he confided in me that he felt like he was:
1. Not the same person he once was (curious, passionate, driven, proactive, determined) 2. Wasting his time (because his potential is not being explored and properly taken advantage off) - So fellow redditors, how can you help me?
He looooves having his little side projects. But, for a long time now, he hasn't had the motivation to find nor persue one. It would mean the world to me if you guys could give me some suggestions on interesting subjects he could explore! I'll list things he loves reading about bellow. I think that if I'm able to arouse his interest, he would be able to understand that the person he is never ceased to exist. List:
Programming (this one is first for a reason, he breaths this stuff. He's last project was on trying to program self-driving cars. He knows a lot of languages)
Finance (he loves everything about the stock market, he once mined bitcoin)
Games (minecraft, gta, tribal wars)
Mods (he wants to create mods! He actually created some for a game called starsector)
He's major is in industrial management engineering.
I'll keep adding if I remember more stuff. Thank you Td;dr: my boyfriend is lacking a sence of passion in his life which is causing him to became more depressive. I'm reaching out to reddit in order to find a project that will interest him and hopefully make him remember what it feels like to be passionate about something his doing.
Minecraft has been a popular game for quite some time, so it was a welcomed trade to be able to earn Bitcoin during gameplay. The process involved the use of PlayMC, which was a server that converted game time into a mining system. However, PlayMC was pulled, and gamers are no longer able to gain Bitcoin as a result. However, the technology involved was still quite enticing. Bitcoin mining in Minecraft isn't as difficult as real-life bitcoin mining but it isn't easy either! You must be the first player to solve a 4x4 sliding tile puzzle in order to receive the bitcoin reward. If you feel this is too easy, set the puzzle_difficulty in the config to 'hard'. Was ist Bitcoin Mining? Bitcoin Mining ist ein Prozess, bei dem Rechenleistung zur Transaktionsverarbeitung, Absicherung und Synchronisierung aller Nutzer im Netzwerk zur Verfügung gestellt wird. Das Mining ist eine Art dezentrales Bitcoin-Rechenzentrum mit Minern auf der ganzen Welt. Dieser Prozess wird analog zum Goldschürfen Mining genannt. Anders als beim Goldschürfen gibt es beim ... The Bitcoin.com mining pool has the lowest share reject rate (0.15%) we've ever seen. Other pools have over 0.30% rejected shares. Furthermore, the Bitcoin.com pool has a super responsive and reliable support team. Ein großer Vorteil des Bitcoin Mining Servers ist, dass man selbst mit einer niedrigen Hash-Power einen Block Reward erhalten kann. Denn schlussendlich werden die Hashs der gesamten Cloud zusammengelegt. Im Vergleich dazu erhält man beim Solo-Mining nur dann den Block Reward, wenn man zufällig den Hash gefunden hat. Und bei einer niedrigen Hash-Power ist die Wahrscheinlichkeit dafür ...
