Back to work.

 Well, it took a few months longer than I would have preferred, and it's not what I'd call an ideal job, but it's something. I'm back to working security, but with a significant pay increase. I'll be working with a new company here where I live, and it should be interesting.

With any luck, the pay increase will allow me to save money, and also to work on improving my cryptocurrency mining in order to make it more of a reliable secondary income for me and my other half  Michele. I currently have two GPUs that I use, an XFX Radeon RX 5700XT THICC III ULTRA (who thinks of these ridiculous names?), which is the more powerful of the two cards, and an EVGA GTX 1070 FTW. Together they run about 75MH/s (megahashes per second) on Ethereum (I'm aware of the massive difficulty planned for December, so I suppose after that point I'll have to see what's available to mine, and go from there). Not too bad for an entry level setup, but I want to build a dedicated mining rig with better hash rate, and expand from there over time. I have a couple of friends who also run mining rigs, and so they might be able to point me in the right direction on this, as well. So that will be handy.

My goal, eventually, is to be able to stop working for other people and do something I enjoy, and make enough to live on while doing it. Maybe the cryptomining thing will help me get there. I suppose we'll only know as time passes.

Thanks for reading :)
