Re: Wuhan, China Corona Virus 2020

I've never really understood how they get their numbers, but currently, supposedly, 6,600 flu deaths this flue season so far.

https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/index.htm

So why so much worry over a virus that has possible so far killed 3 to 6 people?

Ok, I believe I have fixed the red color inconsistency. Please confirm.
Looks good. 👍
Yep.

Re: My current project is about to get a bit more attention

Your "No" red shading color is not uniform across the cells. That's odd; the red looks the same across the cells to me. Congrats, tech. I'm hardware, all this is over my head as well. Thanks. What kind of hardware? Xilinx/Altera based FPGA designs, generally processing/storing video for military ap...

Re: eGPU for Video Editing

Well, I had no idea! But now you are spending $250 to $1000 on a box nearly as big as a small desktop to tie in a GPU. Thunderbolt 3 runs at 40Gbps (5GB/s), PCIe x16 is 32GB/s. Not able to dig deeper into whether the available 6x bus speed of PCIe is used fully when graphic intensive stuff is being ...

Re: eGPU for Video Editing

I have never heard of such a thing for a laptop? I don't think that's possible. The card needs to be tied to the CPU through a really fast bus, PCIe, and that is not available externally on a laptop. You need to buy a desktop and then a PCIe video card to plug into the PCIe slot, usually x16, and en...

Re: Best account for trading options, from a tax point of view?

I wish I never ever heard the word options as related to stocks. A couple major wins early in my investing career set me up for complete and utter failure with them for the 20 years that followed. Any strategy I tried failed. Long calls, selling puts, covered calls, spreads, Leaps, etc. I wouldn't s...

Re: Stock scream room

I am no seer, I just think that there is so much effort behind the scenes to make things look better than they are that something is going to break. What that is I don't know. What triggers it, I don't know. It is just my BS opinion! Am I am perpetually negative on stocks since 2008 so I am still bi...

Re: Stock scream room

It will be interesting to see where this goes from here and how much longer the good times last. If anyone wants to take the other side, I would be willing to bet big $ that the good times last at least until after the election in Nov. I'll take that bet. When we've gotten to the point that the mar...

Re: Stock scream room

Whatever has been going on since October is insane. Is it just me who thinks this is unsustainable? Yet nearly day after day, record highs. Wow. % of stocks above 200 day MA is around 80% vs. 55% at the beginning of Oct. I wouldn't touch stocks with a 20 foot pole unless I was in the PP, so we are a...

Re: mathjak's daytrading adventures

in fact if things settled down you can kiss today and yesterday good bye most likely if you did not do something to capture those gains before they evaporate in both of those .... that is the problem with them .. they are a flash in the pan then roll back time and time again . Tell us how you reall...
