1  Economy / Currency exchange / [Closed] on: November 03, 2012, 07:07:48 AM
As said in title, I want to trade 60 BTC for 420 worth of amazon.co.uk gift credit sent to my email.

BTC sent when credit is claimed/verified in my amazon account. Will accept escrow at buyer's expense.


Found another solution.

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / [solved] Another unconfirmed transaction - tried everything on: June 18, 2011, 05:37:10 AM
Update: Another rescan, this time on the virtual maching, seems to have fixed it. Not sure what went wrong the with the other attempts.

Posted this as a reply in another thread but, as far as my limited knowledge goes, things do seem strange.

As I said, I have a transaction that has been at 0/Unconfirmed for about a day and a half: http://blockexplorer.com/t/8e8M6K4QqW

It's in a block. I've sent a few bitcents to the address from both the wallet that contains the address and another one, and both transactions have confirmed as normal. I have cleared out the appdata folder and had the client download the blockchain again. So far, still unconfirmed.

I've also tried running bitcoind with rescan, but that didn't seem to do anything either.

After that, I set up a Linux VM, had that client download the block chain, moved wallet.dat there and... still nothing!

It's only 2 BTC, so I suppose it could have been worse. But, somehow, it does feel like something is wrong, unless there's still something more I could try to shake the transaction loose.
4  Bitcoin / Mining / Durability of x1 slots on: June 09, 2011, 07:23:06 AM
I see a lot of people mining on x1 slots, but how well does that work in the long run? I'm getting a 5850 to go with the 5870, and the combination of case design and slot layout requires me to put one of the cards in a x1 slot if I want to have some spacing between the cards.

Wouldn't worry too much normally, but beside the disruption caused by motherboard failure it's also a fairly fancy X58 motherboard, which should have a decent resale value if it's in working order.
5  Bitcoin / Mining / Bitshine: GPU powered still for fuel/booze? (Just a wierd idea) on: June 06, 2011, 08:42:08 PM
So, I was thinking about what to do with waste heat, and somehow got the idea of a still that runs off the heat generated from bitcoin hashing.

No idea if it's anything that would work in practice, but in theory it should be possible to generate enough heat to get some amount of mash to 78C... but I don't have the knowledge to figure out what density of GPUs, and what mechanism of heat exchange (if any) would make this work in a useful way.

So, I'm throwing this idea out to here in case anyone with more engineering skills wants to play with it. Smiley



But, in case someone decides to try it practice... save one of the GPUs for a miner of mine?  Wink
6  Bitcoin / Mining / Memory clock (Gigabyte 5870) on: May 09, 2011, 12:12:18 AM
I got a 5870 a while ago, good price and seems to run well at 970. But... I don't seem to be able to get the memory clock lower than 900MHz. I'm pretty sure I've seen lower numbers, but I can't get the slider to not bounce back when I try to apply a lower value.

Am I missing something, or is there something in Gigabyte's design that gets in the way? (I have to admit to being new to Radeons in general, as I seem to have been in sync with nvidia's development schedule for the last decade or so... Smiley)
