CHUWI UBook Fire Hazard. Battery Swollen

Doing some cable management to my Tablet mining rig

Hi everyone, Today, I spent some time in the morning doing some cable management to the area where I have my mining tablets: Those tablets are contributing to distributed computing projects that runs using the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing software, which is also available for Android devices, so my Android tablets are currently contributing to the [email protected] project and to World Community Grid if there’s no yoyo tasks available for them.

Hi everyone, In this post, I’m gonna talk about the HP Stream tablets and how to work around the overheating issues you may have with them.
