Also, just one of the several pro sports rackets teams which afflict Chicago and are always angling more taxpayer support for their private businesses, especially when it comes to stadiums, roads, water, sewage, police support, and a host of other benefits the owners don't begin to pay for. They do entertain pols in their sky boxes, though.

...you can no longer use Chrome due to P-1 stage 2 using all the memory, but watching 25 RP’s at a time getting processed is too beautiful...

(Note: If 25 relative primes seems low, it’s because I have a really old laptop that only supports 4GB, and Windows uses about 1.8GB of that.)

... you remember you have an old broken Dell computer with a 2.5Ghz Intel Core2 Duo, no Hard Drive, no graphics card and no network card, dig it out and manage to get it running a Live USB version of Debian which seems to be running mprime quite satisfactorily.

The local constables pay you a visit because the local electrical utility has flagged your house as a possible "grow house"

Bitcoin miners buy the hardware that you are taking out of production because it is too slow.
