The ability to read PNG images from ICO and CUR format images was introduced in Windows Vista. A PNG image can be stored in the image in the same way as done for a standard Windows BMP format image, with the exception that the PNG image must be stored in its entirety, with its file header.
It’s also still more than capable of maintaining its quarterly dividend of 17 cents, translating into a yield of 5.8%. Investors just priced in the Astoria headlines while erroneously overlooking everything the company has been getting right. Their mistake is now an opportunity.
While cryptocurrencies have seen advancements in the regulatory landscape with countries such as Japan and Russia recognizing cryptocurrencies as legal tender, ICOs have yet to fall under the cloak of regulators.
If you’re especially concerned that you might deplete your savings prematurely, you might also consider devoting some, but not all or even nearly all, of the investment portion of your stash to an immediate annuity, an investment that turns a lump sum into guaranteed income for life. As this annuity payment calculator indicates, a $100,000 investment in an immediate annuity would provide a 65-year-old man with roughly $545 a month for life, while a woman the same age would collect about $525 a month. By choosing the “joint life” option, a 65-year-old man and woman would receive a monthly payment of approximately $470 for as long as either one remains alive.
This creates a dilemma for many investors who seek a decent return on their money, but don’t want to risk losing their principal. However, there are several investment options paying higher rates of interest than CDs and treasury securities with a very reasonable amount of risk. Those who are willing to explore some of these options can significantly increase their investment income without having to lie awake at night worrying whether their money will still be there in the morning.
If I use 1 GTX1070 instead of 6 GPUs is the amount of ZEC mined reduced proportionately (i.e. exactly one-sixth the amount of using 6 GTX1080)? Or would the amount of ZEC which you can mine from 1 be less than one-sixth.
Series I bonds consist of two components: a fixed interest rate return and an adjustable inflation-linked return. They are somewhat similar to TIPS because they have the inflation adjustment as part of the total return. The fixed rate never changes, but the inflation return rate is adjusted every 6 months and can also be negative (which would bring your total return down, not up).
Usually, AirDrop just works. If it’s not on, simply switch it on right there when you’re ready to share. If you don’t see the recipient’s device in the AirDrop row in the Share Sheet, you might need to fix something on their device.
In this case, you can see that my Macbook is the only device nearby that I can send these photos to. When I’m in the office, however, I can see icons for many of my coworkers working in about a thirty-foot vicinity of me.
Another aspect to take into consideration when choosing the right cards for mining is power consumption. Since you’ll be running the miner 24/7, its running costs will build up if you’re using power-hungry hardware, so skip on bling bling and fancy features like RGB lights or other things that can drive your power consumption up. Make sure you don’t cut corners on cooling, though, as you’ll need to keep the cards running in mint conditions to get the best performance. Also, since mining certain currencies such as Ether relies more heavily on the memory, opting for cards with superior memory chips will get you better results.
Take stocks, for example. They clearly have the potential to deliver lofty long-term gains. Over the past eight and a half years since prices bottomed out during the financial crisis, the stock market has returned an annualized 19% or so. But it’s also clear that stocks go into periodic, prolonged slumps, falling nearly 40% on average over a period of a year in the 20 bear markets since 1929, according to this Yardeni Research report on bull and bear markets.
In at least one case, a user with AirDrop set to receive from “Everyone” was sent unwanted sexually explicit images from a nearby stranger. On August 13, 2017, the New York Post reported that at least two women were sent nude pictures while commuting.
Using Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy to broadcast, discover, and negotiate connections, and point-to-point Wi-Fi to transfer information AirDrop is fast, power-efficient, and secure. When you’re using it between iPhones and iPads, you can AirDrop photos, videos, contacts, Passbook passes, Voice Memos, Map location, and any and everything else that appears on a Share sheet.
ICO is an image file format for icons on Windows. ICO file format was first introduced with Windows 1 in 1985. ICO is used to store files, programs and folders. ICO file format is very similar to .CUR files, which are used for mouse cursors. The only main difference between the two is the identification byte in the header.

Was curious abt the motherboard for this rig, been reading a lot of bad reviews on it. I really want to build a 13 GPU rig over time, got the 8 GPUs on the way now deciding on which mobo. Have either of you had any issues with the risers touching either on the mobo or getting GPU errors from running the rig. Thanks!!
Things work a little differently when you share content between your own devices. This is because your content is automatically sent to your recipient device when you hit share, so long as you are signed in with the same Apple ID on both devices. If you are not signed in using the same Apple ID on both devices AirDrop will work in the normal way and you will need to accept the content on the destination system before the transfer takes place.
Preferred stocks generally aren’t as iron-clad as bonds, which are in effect contracts that require interest payments as well as the outright return of capital once the bond matures. Simply put, preferred stocks don’t guarantee a dividend.
AirDrop is enabled by default, however you can turn it off by tapping on the AirDrop option in the all-new Control Center. You also have the option to make yourself discoverable to everyone or people in your contacts.
United States In July 2017 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) indicated that it could have the authority to apply federal securities law to ICOs. The SEC did not state that all blockchain tokens (ICOs) would necessarily be considered securities, but that determination would be made on a case-by-case basis. The SEC action may encourage more mainstream investors to invest in ICOs, although ICOs typically prevent U.S. investor participation to remain out of the jurisdiction of the United States government. The SEC charged Maksim Zaslavskiy for fraud in September 2017 in connection with the ICOs for RECoin and DRC World. The SEC ruled that celebrity ICO endorsements must disclose the amount of any compensation paid for the endorsement. In December 2017, the SEC issued an order stating that the utility-token ICO of Munchee Inc. was classified as a security.
The specifications of Zcash state that the coins will be issued at 12.5 ZEC per block with a block time of 2.5 minutes and rewards will be halving each 4 years or about 840000 blocks. This is pretty much consistent with what is happening with Bitcoin, though with BTC we have started at 50 BTC per block and 10 minutes target block time. With ZEC this translates to pretty much the same amount of coins for the same time period, but achieved with shorter block time and lower block reward, still every 10 minutes there should be 4 blocks totaling 50 ZEC. Because of the difference in specifications the first 4 years will result in 4 times more blocks than what Bitcoin had in the first four years – 840,000 instead of just 210,000.
The greatest risk of emerging markets is that the period of extreme growth may last for a shorter amount of time than investors estimate, leading to discouraging performance. The political environment in countries experiencing economic booms can change suddenly and modify the free market or capitalist economy that previously supported quick growth.
Claymore’s Zcash (ZEC) AMD miner has been updated a couple of times already since the release of the initial version from some days ago. The number of optimizations and hashrate improvements with pretty much each major update has been tremendous, bringing back to life many of the old AMD Radeon GPUs such as 7950/7970 or the 280X, some of the most popular mining video cards for the last few years. The latest release, already a major version 6 brought more fixes and optimizations in terms of performance. As one would expect Nvidia is left behind once more, even though there were some signs that recently it was starting to catch up to the levels of performance of AMD GPUs, it is now yet again significantly slower. So owners of Nvidia-based mining rigs might want to switch to some other alternative for mining at the moment after the latest performance boosts from Claymore. Do have in mind however that Claymore’s Zcash miner does come with a 2.5% dev fee, below is a list of major changes and updates of the miner after the initial release:
That said, in situations where anonymity can defend against targeted attacks on private data, you’re better off being one of 2 million people who could have made a payment for a private medical procedure in San Francisco versus being one of 3 people, two of which live on the other side of the world. The size of this set matters, and the mixing strategies that other cryptocurrencies use for anonymity provide a rather small one in comparison to Zcash. This is not to say these other methods are worthless, there are tradeoffs between the two, but Zcash has a distinct advantage in terms of transaction privacy and as a result, anonymity.
Apple introduced AirDrop in 2011. AirDrop enables easy transfer of files between Macs and Apple devices over the same Wi-Fi or Bluetooth network using the latest iteration of Apple’s useful Bonjour zero-configuration networking protocol. Because the system creates a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi network in order to transfer the files, AirDrop can handle large file sizes (video, or photos, for example). This makes it useful for people who often need to exchange large files with colleagues, such as those working in magazine or film production.

All five equihash coins are fairly similar in profitability. HUSH, ZEC, KMD, and ZEN are all similarly profitable on the calculator, so any would be a good candidate to mine and immediately sell. Nicehash is an interesting option also – if you point your GPU miner at it you will get paid in Bitcoin. For mining and holding, you should do your research and determine which ones you think have the longest term potential to increase in usefulness, value, and price.
This is a list of the most popular Zcash Mining software for each platform, some of this software contains a built-in developers fee. I try to keep this list up to date as I can, if there is a broken link or missing software please drop me an email.
Anytime you go to Share something (document, picture, etc) on iPhone, you’ll see the option to Airdrop it at the top of the Share menu. You can share files from your iCloud Drive, pictures from the Photos app, songs you’ve found on Apple Music, recordings from Voice Memos, and much more. If you see the option, you can Airdrop that media.
