I had been practising this mocked up sport for quite a few years (too old, now), and never saw that performance:

Thankfully, I'm watching that after I quit. Grin

Water... Ok.

I paid for a 3 computers (premium) licence of this (apparently fine) soft:
http://www.qfxsoftware.com/ks-windows/which-keyscrambler.htm

Then asked:

Code:
Hi,

I (very) recently bought a premium version of your KS software, and was wondering about the "3 computers" feature.
Can I forward the key you sent to me to 2 friends?

Cheers!

And received, less than 2 hours apart:

Code:
Hi,

Sorry, licenses cannot be shared with friends. The three computers must be all within the same household or all be owned by you.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions, and thank you for being our customer.

Best regards,

Qian

Kinda disturbed by the answer content and signature, and considering unistalling it now.
Any opinion?
3  Other / Off-topic / How to save youtube videos on: January 17, 2014, 10:57:02 PM
Posting this after tonight's discovery, for me.
We're subbing Andreas videos, and I learnt how easy it was to download a youtube vid.

If initial url is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUuU4nSRTVg&list=PLbSdnuFOLV4nMiQG9gvPBX_VQUf6E4COM
just add "ss" before youtube:
http://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=FUuU4nSRTVg&list=PLbSdnuFOLV4nMiQG9gvPBX_VQUf6E4COM

Choose quality, click on download. You're done.
Was I late, or something?

Haven't checked the facts yet, but that's one fun story, if true. Grin

EDIT : Writing style is not really to my liking, though, you've been warned.
5  Other / Meta / Crumbs, Hashfast, and ban. on: January 08, 2014, 11:47:44 PM
Crumbs - which I have absolutely no connection to, not even a single PM - have been trolling hashfast threads quite steadily.
Intention was pure, intuition was right on spot, presentation was alternatively hillarious (come on, the ponys!) and very conspirationnist.
But overall, he was right, tried to warn people in his own way.
If he's been banned, I really am sad.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=127503

He might have kept more people away from this scam, would he have not been shut down.
I dislike censorship just a tad less than scammership.

But I hate both.

Haven't seen this posted yet, so....

She might prove useful to track down people like TradeFortress, and I'm pretty sure she'd be very interested in such cases.
She looks resourceful (and even got insider access to government databases, so...)

Bookmark her! Wink
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin as a new way to embrace taxes on: December 22, 2013, 10:34:31 PM
I had a lenghty and rough discussion with a couple of dubious friends, and thought I'd share the way I managed to nail some interest into them.
They were aware about this new "electronic cash", to begin with.

1 - Sweep away the concept of money. Bitcoin is just another "Like", exactly as the ones on facebook or other shitty, so-called social networks.
2 - Introduce the concept of crowdfunding, and talk about some great acheivements.
3 - When we need a new hospital or a bridge being repaired, most of the time, a private company will be chosen by people we elected to decide for us.
4 - Those choices (they make in our name) have been proven to be based on friendship/corruption, and it's becoming more and more frequent.

Then, throw an open discussion about bitcoin, and make it clear that:
- Bitcoins cannot be stolen/seized.
- Bitcoins (and very tiny fractions of bitcoins) can be transmitted in a matter of minutes.
- Bitcoins cannot be forged, and are limited to 21m units.
- Bitcoins can be tracked down, as any transaction is public.

5 - We need bridges. We need hospitals.
6 - They are repairing bridges and building hospitals with our money.
7 - If our money, why couldn't we chose?

Bitcoin allows us to upvote such projects, and prove that we did.

Any discussion from that point will most likely convince any non-beleiver that bitcoin has a role to play.
Not as a money transmitter, but as a new way to consider taxes.
One that goes willingfully from the taxpayer to the useful projects.
Corruption will get much less efficient, with everyone deciding.

Of course, we cannot decide for each bridge being repaired in the world. But there are sensitive solutions to that issue.
I'm sure you know what I mean.

Anyway... Bitcoin is new approach to global contribution (aka taxes), one that you cannot easily cheat with.
And one that cannot be embezzeled.

You vote.
They get the job done.

Website, too.

Is that really allowed? Shouldn't staff be a little more neutral? Or is that a way to pay them?
9  Economy / Computer hardware / [SOLD] Sapphire HD 7950 3GB - Brand new - France - Europe on: December 04, 2013, 07:51:57 PM
As title says, it's never been used, not even unboxed.

Ships from France, just tell me which method you want me to use (preferably with tracking).
Looking for 0.2BTC, plus shipping fees.

You'll need to pay first, unless you want me to send it to some escrow I trust, and are ready to pay for extra shipping + escrow fees too.
Don't pm me, please, keep it public.
10  Local / Discussions générales et utilisation du Bitcoin / Bases de Franc ~o~ on: December 03, 2013, 09:13:57 PM
Comment vous pouvez poster dans une sous-catégorie avec un titre aussi immonde?
Un simple réagencement pourrait suffire, comme "Bitcoin : Les bases".
Ou "Débutants" ou "Tout savoir pour commencer" ou n'importe quoi d'autre.
Mais pas "Bases de Bitcoin", c'est juste ridicule, sérieux. Grin
11  Local / Discussions générales et utilisation du Bitcoin / Minage? Non. on: December 01, 2013, 02:34:52 AM
Des idées?
Erodage, c'est nul et peu approprié, mais au moins il y a "Ero" dedans. Grin
Moissonnage, Cueillette, c'est un peu végétal mais moins éloigné sémantiquement, à mon avis.
Bref, si vous avez des idées, je suis preneur!

Collecte? Mmmh, collecte, j'aime bien, en fait.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / [CHARITY] Need candidates! on: November 27, 2013, 02:27:47 AM
It looks like http://www.bitcoindf.org/ has been stalling for quite a while.
They probably need our inputs to find legit candidates, so let's help them!
13  Other / Meta / Deleting posts from Lending sub on: November 27, 2013, 02:13:00 AM
I just witnessed a nice ballet of self-deleted posts on the lending sub here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=348233.0

Why would it be a bad idea to lock posts like it's done on auction sub, and prevent people from editing/deleting, there, too?
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Inputs.IO still a Bitcoin Foundation Silver Member on: November 23, 2013, 07:41:04 PM
I'm losing patience and getting pissed off, here.

I (and apparently several other people) emailed them to get Inputs removed, and it's still here as nothing happened.

Thank you; we are looking into it.

Regards,

Can anyone weigh in and get this scammer/incompetent kid out of the list, please?
This could hurt some newcomers, as inputs is still accessible through the index2, and I'm pretty sure deposit feature is still active.

15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Fw: Disk too small on: November 21, 2013, 08:27:53 PM
hello sir sorry for disturbing you just need some information I have download

Bitcoin Qt but now realize my hard disk is very small and its have too much

data its still going 49 weeks behind and hard disk is full now my bad I have

some 0.15 btc which are not visible if I delete this Bitcoin Qt and  re-download

on new computer then my old address and coins recoverable is yes then how

please give some information thanks   

Sorry to post this PM I received, but I'd hate being responsible for any damage.
From what I understand, you just need to copy your wallet.dat file (from old computer) to a secure location, before you reinstall QT on the new computer.
Then copy back your wallet.dat to the new computer, and you should be fine, once the blockchain has finished updating (which can take up to a a long time (weeks), depending on your bandwitdth).



16  Economy / Auctions / Reverse auction : direct AM shares on: November 21, 2013, 12:16:41 AM
I'm willing to buy 10 direct AM shares.

Starting bid is 0.1 per share.
Decrement has to be 0.05 at least.

Auction runs for 48h, starting now (any offer after this will be void).


Bid examples:
A : 10@0.1
B : 5@0.095

etc.

17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / listaccounts command on: November 20, 2013, 07:12:28 PM
I was playing with QT debug console and got very surprised by the output of the "listaccounts" command.

Basically, the default "account" is negative, and all the others are positive.
This does not reflect at all the unspent outputs for each of those "accounts", which I find very disturbing.

I found this old thread about the same issue:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=114285.0

And I have 2 questions.
- Someone in linked thread suggests using sendfrom to avoid this issue, but that fails because of the "hidden" change address, right?
- If so, what is the most simple way to list unspent outputs for each address known in your wallet?



18  Economy / Lending / Nasty question on: November 18, 2013, 02:28:25 AM
May I inquire about this fine loan:

without being instantly shut up?



19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Acquire and Dismantle on: November 17, 2013, 09:59:39 PM
Not today.
Not tomorrow.

But a time will come when we'll be able to crowdfund to buy huge companies.
And just pop them dead.

Can't wait.
