  1. Yes and cheaper than 200 a night. Just need to look.
  2. The cost of being an exhibitor. The room cost, even at the last venue was more. Remember AXPONA is not in Chicago proper, It is in the suburbs near O'Hare. I mean my hotel for Next year's AXPONA, I have the room already for Thursday through Monday is 79 a night - the hotel is 1/4 mile away.
  3. Well, My friend said RMAF was at least double AXPONA, for exhibitors. Plus it costs more to fly in, etc. AXPONA wants to be the Munich show of NA.I know peeps on the board for AXPONA.
  4. CES is dead for audio. So, I would not even worry about that show. In talking with a friend, who owns a store (A Wilson dealer), and used to exhibit at RMAF, the expense there is killing the exhibitors. It is double the price of AXPONA.
  5. Well, RMAF is very costly for exhibitors and keeps going up. I know some shops that went to that show and stopped because it just too costly.
  6. I really don't know how to troll - seriously. It is basic brute force. I joke yes, troll no.
  7. No just a fast PC - like the new Ryzen with the expensive GPU that can be used for calculations
  8. https://medium.com/@jonathan_hui/qc-cracking-rsa-with-shors-algorithm-bc22cb7b7767 Then there is the recovery of RSA keys - https://thehackernews.com/2017/10/rsa-encryption-keys.html
  9. There are several algorithms that seem to be useful, yes. I am not a math geek, just a biochemist (or frustrated bartender ).
  10. There has been hacks on RSA (short keys but still). With Quantum computing, it has been stated that RSA will be useless.
  11. RSA has been hacked many times. Here is one - https://www.darkreading.com/attacks-breaches/china-hacked-rsa-us-official-says/d/d-id/1137409 Blake2 not yet from a small query.
  12. Fir is still 'softwood'. Also fir has more extractables that can cause issues when wet. Hardwood, like maple, oak, ash, etc. are the best for stands. And actually the best wood is chestnut.
  13. Why I have upgraded speaker, room treatments, then upstream components. Trying to improve the quality of sound, to me.
