Low hashrate on 1060?

I installed 2 x Nvidia 1060 with 6 Gb each. When using multiple different miners, I end up with a low hashrate such as 10..11 MH on each, totaling around 20 MH, but fluctuating very strongly (to the downside.)

I first used Minergate, and dismissed it soon for its low hash rate (which was a wrong assumption.) Turns out I only needed to upgrade the BIOS firmware of my Asus V270-K motherboard. Upon restarting Ubuntu and powering on Minergate, I now get a constant 44..46 MH, which can be considered good for an untweaked, untampered pair of 1060’s.

Samsung 460 or 3185 – Install Toner

Eight years ago I bought my first Samsung printer. It’s only fault was that it complained randomly about “Install Toner”.

Fool me once, fool me twice – but a year ago I bought myself the Samsung C460, because, of course, that kind of trivial problems should be solved by now.

The definition of an idiot is a person who is doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different outcome. Hello, that’s me.

EPiServer – get page property value in a specific language

I’m sending emails from EPiServer, and the email content is based on a language selection coming from the backend. As often the case in EPiServer implementations, I have a separate page for Email Settings and translations. I read the subjects, mail texts and other properties from the [CultureSpecific] properties.

How to do this programmatically? I found lengthy answers on the internet, but I want a short, quick answer. Here is how to get e.g. the Swedish translations:
