For Sale – GPU Mining Clear Out – 3x Titan XP, 1x 1080Ti & 8x 1070Ti

I’ve got some more ASICs on the way and my home power ring won’t support them on top of what I already have, so the GPUs have to go.

The memory has been raised to between 300-500MHz on most of the GPUs, with the power limit dropped to 85% for the majority of their life – so well within normal operating parameters.

No faults, no issues at all. Always kept within good temp limits and in a ventalated dry area.

All have original boxes.

The 1080ti & 1070tis all have transferable warranty. The Titan XPs are under warranty til August 2019 – I am not certain of the transferability of the warranty from Nvidia direct, however if you have any issues – you will have my contact details and I’ll be most happy to deal with the warranty for you or compensate you for any failure.

2x Titan XP (2016 w/ 3584 shaders) – £500 each – Warranty til August 2019 (1 sold, 2 remain)
1x Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme 1080 Ti – £500 – Warranty til July 2021

Shipping included & happy to consider offers / bundle discounts.

Wanted – Good spec and condition Chromebook

Thanks buddy. crazy how time is flying so not long to go now. She’s given me the go ahead to sell her mint laptop as well which I’m about to advertise here which still has 1.5yr on-site warranty.

The Chromebook is a 16GB Internal I believe. It’s a beautiful machine. I can do it for £230 delivered and that is mainly because it’s in brand new condition. I cannot see a single hairline scratch on it or thumbprint. My wife and eye have serious OCD when it comes to keeping our tech in the best condition. Me being in IT, I’m always using Antec spray to clean my devices.

I appreciate the price may be out of your budget but just wanted to see if anyone would want it at this price. I’ll upload some pics for you now and any marks that come up, please ignore as it’s most likely my shadows,lol

Bing helps you learn more about the news in less time

Being an informed consumer of the news is more challenging today than it used to be. We live in a busy world where dozens of headlines compete for our attention every day. On top of that, it’s difficult to know if you’re getting all sides of a story or just leaning into an echo chamber, and it can feel like a full-time job to seek out various points of view.

At Bing, we want to empower users to get an overview of the news in less time. That’s why we built the Bing spotlight that provides overviews of news topics that you can see right in the Bing search results when you search for major developing news stories.

Spotlight shows users the latest headlines, a rundown of how the story has developed over time, and relevant social media posts from people around the web. Spotlight also shows diverse perspectives on a given topic so users can quickly get a well-rounded view on the topic before deciding what they want to go deeper on and read by clicking on any of the articles.

Spotlight is currently available on Bing desktop and mobile web in the US.


 

Users’ trust in the news we present is of the utmost importance to Bing, and we’re committed to providing a well-rounded view of news from diverse, quality sources.

To start, Bing monitors millions of queries and news articles every day and identifies impactful stories that evolve over a period of weeks or months. We look at various user signals such as queries and browser logs, and document signals from publishers such as how many publishers cover a story, their angles, and how prominently they feature the story on their site.  For controversial topics, in the Perspectives module, we show different viewpoints from high-quality sources. For a source to be considered high quality, it must meet the Bing News PubHub Guidelines, which is a set of criteria that favors originality, readability, newsworthiness, and transparency. Top caliber news providers identify sources and authors, give attribution and demonstrate sound journalistic practices such as accurate labeling of opinion and commentary. Behind the scenes, we leverage our deep learning algorithms and web graphs of hundreds of millions of web sites in the Bing index to identify top sources for national news, per category, query, or article. Our goal is to provide broader context for impactful stories, from politics to business to major disasters, and much more.

To try the new experience, search for major news topics like self-driving cars on Bing.com, or find the latest spotlights on the Bing.com homepage carousel.

Providing different perspectives in our spotlight experience is part of a broader effort to help our users be more informed with various perspectives on a range of topics, from news to common health questions. We’re working hard to expand the range of topics covered by this approach, including expanding the numbers of topics spotlight covers, to help you become more informed in less time and effort. We hope you’re as excited about these updates as we are!

A quick take on the State of Hybrid Cloud survey

What does hybrid cloud mean to IT professionals, and why are so many companies using it? Microsoft conducted a survey with research firm Kantar TNS in January 2018, asking more than 1700 respondents to chime in. Surveys were collected from IT professionals, developers, and business decision makers to identify how they perceive hybrid cloud, what motivates adoption, and what features they see as most important. Survey participants in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and India were asked their thoughts about hybrid, which for the survey was defined as consisting of “private cloud or on-premises resources/applications integrated with one or more public clouds”. We’ve created a summary infographic of the survey that you can review. A few survey highlights:

  • Hybrid is common, with a total of 67 percent of respondents now using or planning to deploy a hybrid cloud. Many of those hybrid users have made the move recently, 54 percent of users in the past two years.
  • Cost, a consistent IT experience, and the ability to scale quickly were all given as important reasons for moving to hybrid cloud.
  • The perceived benefits of hybrid cloud, as well as some of the challenges, vary by the geographic location of respondents. For example, increased security was the top benefit cited in the United Kingdom and Germany, while the top United States benefit was better scalability of compute resources.
  • The top use case given for hybrid cloud was controlling where important data is stored at 71 percent. Using the cloud for backup and disaster recovery was a close second at 69 percent.

State of Hybrid Cloud 2018 survey

Surveyed company sizes were from mid-market to enterprise (250+). The survey was conducted January 4 – 24, 2018. For the purposes of this survey, hybrid cloud was defined as follows. Hybrid cloud consists of private cloud or on-premises resources/applications integrated with one or more public clouds.

New Skype features make sharing classroom experiences easier |

As a new school year quickly approaches, many teachers and students are eagerly anticipating engaging in new Skype collaborative projects, virtual field trips and guest speakers. Recently, Skype released some new features that will make those connections even easier. To get them all, upgrade your Skype today and learn more here.

One new feature is the Chat Media Gallery. Files, links and photos shared through the chat are stored in the Gallery, making them easily searchable and accessible. People no longer need to scroll through their chat history to find a file. They can simply click on Gallery under the chat name to locate a file that has been shared through the chat.

Snapshots is another new feature. When people are on a Skype call, they can click the Snapshots button and a picture will be taken of all parties on the call. The photo will automatically appear in the Skype chat box for anyone on that call. This is a handy feature for classes doing a Mystery Skype or collaborative project. Their interactions can be quickly captured with a click of a button and shared on social media, with parents, or on a school bulletin or website. This is also a great way to capture the magic of a virtual field trip and share what the students learned in a school yearbook or email to parents.

A third new feature, Sharing Emotion, allows participants to click on an Emotion icon to cause it to automatically appear over the video during a Skype call. This is a fun way to communicate non-verbally during a call or to respond to a question during a Mystery Skype.

Skype Call Recording has just been added as a new feature, as well. It is cloud-based, and all participants in the call are notified when someone starts recording the call. It records everyone’s video, as well as any screens that have been shared. If there is a special Skype guest speaker or virtual field trip that a teacher wants to capture, or if there is a unique class-to-class Skype collaborative project, the recording feature is an ideal way to capture and preserve the learning experience.

These new features are a welcome addition to Skype and will further enable students and teachers to have engaging and world-changing Skype in the Classroom experiences!

Teachers: You are invited to explore all these amazing features here and start using them with your Skype in the Classroom activities.
