    NFT's could be digital contracts for copyrights, keeping all the tricky IP information tidy, and or subdividable etc. But most of the people backing NFT's don't believe in copy right. And Copy right is only enforceable by states. And... a fully automated copyright depository would still be...

    3090's are in stock here in New Zealand for US$3,000. so glad I didn't sell the 2080ti. What in the actual fuck though. And I am the sort of person who would love to have a problem of cooling a 600w card. Next gen better have the goods and competitive pricing.
