Adding Bluetooth to a VW RCD 300

I own a basic VW Caddy MK3 (2009) which was equipped with a RCD 300 head unit. It did not come with the aux function/connectivity and this post explains how I added Bluetooth connectivity. This was a very simple installation with no requirement for VCDS coding; the Bluetooth adapter replicates a CD changer. At the time of writing this article, I was able to purchase this adapter on Amazon UK for ~£35 – https://amazon....

More RTX 3060 Nicehash overclocking

This is part 2 from my previous post on RTX 3060 Nicehash overclocking settings. I don’t want to edit the previous article because the content still stands to be accurate for the hash rate I achieved. However, I have since learned even more about the card and managed to improve my Nicehash quick miner hash rate by a further 10%! If you want to see the first/part1 post, you can do so here: RTX 3060 Nicehash mining overclock settings...

RTX 3060 Nicehash mining overclock settings

I recently managed to buy a Gigabyte RTX 3060 without lining the pockets of a scaler, lucky me! I recently discussed how I was able to circumvent the Nvidia crypto mining limitations: Unlock RTX 3060 mining hash rate (that post also includes access to the driver). This doubled the RTX 3060 Nicehash mining rate using the ‘unlocked’ Nvidia beta driver – going from ~22MH/s up to ~40MH/s. Impressive! Now I am going to share my RTX 3060 overclock settings, which enabled me to achieve a further 10% uplift in Nicehash performance....

Unlock RTX 3060 mining hash rate

There has been lots of news coverage around the recent mistake made by Nvidia with their RTX 3060 driver allowing uninhibited mining hash rates: a great round-up from The Verge. A developer driver inadvertently included code used for internal development which removes the hash rate limiter on RTX 3060 in some configurations. The driver has been removed, but there are lots of copies in circulation. There are still some limitations, you must have a monitor attached and can only run a single RTX 3060 at a time....

Honeygain docker-compose setup

So Honeygain has finally arrived as a Docker container and this article will give you everything you need to build your own docker-compose YAML file for faster deployments. You can see the docs provided by the Honeygain devs on the matter here: https://honeygain.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018979919-How-to-run-Honeygain-on-Docker-Linux- However, they do not provide a nice way to deploy time and again from a docker-compose file, scroll down for a template! At the time of writing, you are permitted to run the service on two devices per public IP....
