I had some excessive CPU usage (30% on a 4-core system) inside
WheaAttemptPhysicalPageOffline when using an Intel HD graphics 2500 GPU.
At first I thought I needed to convince IT to update the drivers: Intel HD graphics causing high CPU utilization | Intel Communities.
Then I closed all Visual Studio 2013 instances and the CPU usage went to normal.
So I’m suspecting a WPF issue somewhere.

Via Best C# Article of October 2014 Nicolas Dorier – NBitcoin I learned that dthorpe (yes, that is indeed Danny Thorpe many people know him from the Delphi, C# and Google world) is active as Contributors to NicolasDorier/NBitcoin and on quite some Bitcoin related repositories.
When we met last summer, he was visiting the Bitcoin 2014 conference in Amsterdam. It is really good to see his activity, and I really hope his Opex.io venture (see his LinkedIn profile) will take off, as his ideas are sound.
