1  Bitcoin / Legal / can I mine and hold bitcoin in NY with bitcoin license as it is? on: August 22, 2014, 12:48:21 AM
I was thinking of buying some mining products but with at least btc guild it seems it would be illegal to mine with at least  them with bitcoin licensing in NY. I have to see if this is the same for others or if there's a safe way to mine legally in NY if this its implemented as it sounds

Thanks for any head up and if there's a post with proper facts please post on that as well.

2  Other / Meta / Ip address instead of bitcoin talk address? on: January 31, 2014, 01:30:18 AM
I'm hoping this is not a sign of bad things to come but instead of bitcointalk.org in an address I got an ip address link to the post of interest.

The ip was/is : https://109.201.133.195  

Just thought I'd post it so someone can make sure something didn't die on the domain or if this is something new to expect from this site. I don't normaly open bitcoin talk post by ip since who knows whats on the other end .

Hope this helps the universe.

edit..
http://ip-lookup.net/index.php seems to show this is bitcoin talks ip address, but still weird.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / how is bitcoin treated over the internet? getting dos rst attacks on: November 18, 2013, 01:54:05 AM
I'm just curious if they are indirectly coming from mining software and wallet software. I'd like to see if I can cut down on  them and make my network feel a bit smoother.
Thanks for any help.
4  Economy / Economics / What effects the value of bitcoins? on: October 22, 2013, 02:01:25 PM
I had to ask since I'm not quite clear if the bitcoin to U.S.D  is because more are using bitcoins or less are using bitcoins.

I was thinking about buying something and they want payment in static bitcoin price (same price regardless of local conversion) and went "wow!!!" ,what did I miss Shocked?
5  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Any better steps to use eroupters with cgMined and hub on: September 27, 2013, 06:37:13 PM
I've been getting bugged by the small steps I need to get each additional eroupter recognized by my pc.

Maybe its the hub but when I install new I have to
1. plug the new devices in and let windows.think its won with the drivers it picks.
2. install the new drivers for cgminer.
3. power off the hub and cgminer
4. plug in each device one at a time even the ones already recognized with cgminer
5. Mine

3 and 4 are the pains I have and I'm hoping theres an easier path. I only have 6 eroupters , so its not too bad but if I went stupid and bought more instead of a blade (regaurdless of brand) this would get crazy.

Thanks for any heads up on this matter.
6  Bitcoin / Mining support / What is an untracked straum share? on: September 25, 2013, 01:12:52 AM
I just happen to glance at my miner and see Untracked stratum share from btcGuild.

Do I get more credit or less credit from the wierdness of this Cry Huh.  It was just something to ask Undecided.

Thanks for any ideas on the matter.
7  Bitcoin / Mining support / Can and how do I get cgminer 3.4.3 on raspberry pi? on: September 14, 2013, 11:07:11 PM
I downloaded what I thought was the right file package minus that it was for 3.1.1 at the time  and I can't use the make or configure options if needed to make this program go.

I try to call it as it is and nothing pops up that indicates it working after changing the cgminer file to open as an executable.

I'd just like to use the least amount of voltages and not kill my normal pc doing mining with my bitcoin eroupters.

The file for 3.4.3 does not have a make file and "./configure" will not enable or disable features

I hope This can be made to work

Thanks

below is the instructions for 3.1.1 but since 3.4.3 is missing what I think I need, its probably no help at all either.

8  Economy / Economics / Does purchase of different exchange effect bitcoin value? on: August 12, 2013, 01:04:49 AM
I bought a bitcoin for 94u.s.d though mt gox looks like.its trading at 105 U.S.D. Are.all bitcoins made the same not depending on a specific exchange offering at the time?

Thanks for the heads up.
9  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Is there any pull to have an app for nas'es for mining on: May 09, 2013, 09:38:46 PM
I had a thought as I wait on a list for a miner that maybe thing I normally leave on could be used to control something like an asic device. My device happens to be a Netgear readynas duo v1 and I was hoping that someones played around with using devices like this to do mining. This NAS though a few years old has the ability to do torrenting if in the right hands(meaning presumed for good use instead of bad use), so I hoping if they'd allow something like that that a mining program from one of the developers there could take a look into them and see if one could be churned out.

My ultimate thought in this is that if I ever make any cashible value out of mining its going back into getting a newer nas so why not let it do the hard work since I can already log in from anywhere and administer it as needed with the built in software it provides.

If there is already a version for certain nas'es post a good link to where it is so I can see if it is a nas I can look into in the future or see what it would take to ask that developer to experiment on a hardware I use.

Thanks
10  Other / Beginners & Help / Bitcoin-qt uses alot of processor when syncing : why? on: April 27, 2013, 08:47:24 PM
I thought bitcoin-qt was downloading a file to check off if the numbers matched and then I use a miner for mining but this program pulls more than the miner I have set up. My pc went up from 40 C and tipped 100C to which my pc shut itself down. Theres been 4300 blocks in the last week and its constantly bring in new ones so it never stops per se.

Is there anyway to throttle it since its pulling so much load on my pc.


At least I know why my pc is shutting down when I'm not mining.... THE DARN WALLET IS TREATED LIKE A MINER WHILE IT SYNCS.

Thanks
11  Other / Beginners & Help / Asic with "normal software" or gui Miner type program on: April 20, 2013, 02:35:09 AM
I saw an forum ad for the butterfly asic device here and thought if it does what I want I might purchase one. It suppposed to come with cables and software to make it bitcoin mining"able". My wonder is will those outside devices plugged in by usb be seen in programs like guiMiner so I can stick with what I want or do I have to stick normally with what they provide.

Sorry if this has been asked here a million times being it a newbie forum but if its already answered post a like , I'll thank you and I'll be one step closer to helping mine bitcoins in an effective manner.
12  Other / Beginners & Help / What would I have to do to get cuda running with gpuMiner on: April 20, 2013, 12:48:26 AM
I think right now its looking for a folder that doesn't exist or is hidden but its looking for "miners\puddinpop\rpcminer-cuda.exe" and a google search only mentions that guiMiner has support but there seems to be no links to where puddinpop is or rpcMiner.

I just at this thought in time wanted to see If I'd get some more bang on my nVidia card. Its old but it was a big improvement over my last card . It expects a cuda rating of 1 though its holding stronger numbers than a newer card with a 3.0 rating.

End of thought is where do i find these addons to experiment even though its an Nvidia card?

Thanks

13  Other / Beginners & Help / What is needed for and fpga miner: whats needed aside board in post. on: April 17, 2013, 11:20:16 PM
I saw this post when searching for info but being new to the site I cant ask here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=62681.20

I saw this on amazon for 150 but no mention of uses here or what otherwise needs to be added to make it a mining tool.

http://www.amazon.com/Nexys2-500K-Xilinx-Spartan-3E-Development/dp/B001D9EN6E/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header

Its only 150 U.S.D so I'm not sure if I'm looking too much into bitcoin sites which are over charging or if this is as is and could just run and fpga software and make it go.

What is needed more if I get a supported board. Are there parts not mentioned I need to get a good mining tool up and running?

Thanks
14  Other / Beginners & Help / Any way to know which hashes are completed from gui miner on: April 17, 2013, 12:24:58 AM
Right now it says I have 18 accepted tasks but on the 2 mine pools I uses off and on they tell me the same thing and don't tell me when the tasks have been completed. If I've got 18 working and I turn off my computer, that not a good thing since they are then flagged as stale and have to start all over again (I think)

At least with  the few science computation sites I've done they give some sort of percentage of my completion or at least continued on if I stopped them.

If its just the fact that gui miner doesn't give these options and there are ones that do, give me a heads up. I like to know what my odds are without having to go to an outside calculator to see how my progress is regardless of its size and value.

Thanks
15  Other / Beginners & Help / turning down gpu usage? How? on: April 16, 2013, 04:54:53 PM
My laptop I want to use for low hashing of bitcoins. I want to lower the amount of usage gpuminer is using on my card. I do the -f 60 but thats probaby for proper pcs with alot more air pass through.

Its doing about 3.4 Mhashes but I'd like to get it to be about half that without loosing out on missing hashes and my pc shutting down.

Thanks
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Is there a way to backup to a different pool site on guiMiner on: April 16, 2013, 01:50:47 AM
I'm using eclipse consortium since it seemed the easiest to setup or at least more tolerant with my config file (i found just recently from another post that I probably messed it up with updating username and pass and needed to clear it)

eclipse got to a point it didn't have a work hash and guiMiner kept reminding me nothing was being worked on. I want to use another and for a time shut eclipse off.

Any ideas,
  Thanks
