    The latest download is out, the major one they have been working towards for a long time. 1.4.

    Edit: great video on hard drive power usage and how Chia interacts with drives also showing some utilities to keep drives in certain idle state that increases longevity etc.

    Hit a block this afternoon too on only a handful of drives since I never plugged my kit in after moving, I'm guessing the network size / difficulty has tanked?

    First one since April too mind you

    Down around 22EiB, so about 1/3 down from all time high.

    Has been pretty stable around the 22-25EiB range for a long time now :)

    Did I mention my Chia rig is the worst setup I've ever built? I haaaate it. I guess primarily because I use mechanical drives, HBAs, SAS Expanders and multiple power supplies

    Gave up once post-move because the rig kept turning off and on, tried again tonight after a CMOS Reset and it started..

    Fair bit of syncing to do since it was shut down, will plug all the external drives in at a later date.

    Funnily enough, it took me 12 hours to sync the entire bitcoin blockchain last week (500~gb, 2009-ish to 2022) - but I guarantee this will take me a few days

    Mines been working fine for a long time now but i had some major annoyances early on and almost shelved it all but glad i persevered as its been pretty solid since , not like its making me huge amounts but feels like it could be 1 to hold for the next bull run.

    Best way to sync after a long time is to download the entire DB file and copy it over

    Meanwhile the Chia NFT story is rolling along. Lots of people beginning to realise you don't need to go through an exchange or even a web server of any kind to execute a transaction. Nothing to regulate.

    People can literally buy an NFT from dexie by just downloading an offer file and uploading to their chia client. All decentralised no need to trust an exchange.

    Just get Flexfarmer and use Flexpool, it’s super reliable and uses hardly any system resources.

    Been working fine for months and months on end, typical.

    Haha I think a couple of the rigs as t the office are due for a drive upgrade again soon even after the migration, don't really have spare 500s/1tbs to delegate - chia is never no effort farming
