I am not a subscriber of this magazine. Are there any subscribers that can confirm or deny a mention of Bitcoin?

Hello all,

I don't get a chance to login to the forum as often as I'd like to anymore. I am far to busy running my Bitcoin empire. Tongue

I have disabled forum PMs for the time being because the PM email notification doesn't seem to work.

For questions/support/etc please email me. My email address and PGP key can be found on the Bitcoin4Cash site.

Thanks! Smiley

5  Other / Off-topic / Using Liberty Reserve? READ THIS NOW! on: February 04, 2011, 11:20:40 PM
Please read the following:

Entire thread:
Subject: "Watch out for changes at LR!"

My recommendation is to NOT use Liberty Reserve. If you have funds in it, dump them NOW.

I had posted warnings about LR on this forum around a year ago.

I also advised lots of people in PMs to not hold their money with LR. I hope people paid attention.

I am also starting to think that the recent demand for Bitcoin in the past few days have to do with the changes that are going on over at Liberty Reserve.

"Banking secrecy" is an oxymoron.
6  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / $250 Bounty Offered (Was $2000-$2500) on: January 29, 2011, 03:00:11 AM
Hello all,

I am offering a personal bounty of $2K USD $250 USD for the following features to be added into Bitcoin. I'd code them myself, but time restraints won't permit me to. Let me hire you. Smiley

1. Bitcoin should run its P2P operations in straight SSL. It should look like FF talking to Apache to any DPI. See the Tor source code. Most of the work is done already. REPEALED - See discussion.

2. On first run Bitcoin should select a random high TCP port (>1024) and save it to the bitcoin.conf. (something like "listenerport=8972"). This port should contain the new SSL-only listener. Do we need to keep the old port 8333 listener running for compatibility for a while? REPEALED - The port number should be selectable by the user; not random. See discussion.

3. UPnP support. Bitcoin should port forward the chosen high TCP port automatically. (Possibly port 8333/tcp too, if the answer to the question above is "Yes"). The GUI/command line should have a UPnP off/on toggle. It should be "on" by default. $250 Bounty still offered. UPnP should be off by default on the Linux build.

It's just a matter of time before Bitcoin is blocked in all of "those" countries that have oppressive regimes. We need to resist stuff now before Bitcoin gains traction. I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel here (Tor). I just want to make it more resistant to DPI blocking-related attacks. Better off with a distribution of Bitcoin with Tor included. Hopefully those under repressive regimes already know about/use Tor. Having Tor installed offers other benefits besides Bitcoin.

If these 3 features are implemented in the next 30 days, I'll throw in an additional $500 USD. Payable in Bitcoin or in pre-loaded VISA cards from Bitcoin2CC - your choice.

Hello all,

I can confirm that our version of the TSA in Canada (called "CATSA" here) now performs a similar molestation even on domestic flights.

My beautiful country is lost too. It saddens me so....  Cry

10  Economy / Marketplace / - Updates/Fixes/New Products added on: December 29, 2010, 05:30:49 AM
Hello all,

I just discovered a bug with the Bitcoin Gadgets site that was preventing people from completing an order. My hacked shipping module was breaking things, apparently. This has been corrected. My apologies to those who had attempted to place orders over the past couple of days.

The site has also been fully themed. It looks way better now.

More great LED lights have been added to the site today. Some of the new additions include high efficiency LED strip lighting for homes/offices, and stylish pot lights.

Anyone have any suggestions for products I should carry?

12  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / 0.3.18 Bug Report on "getreceivedbyaccount" display on: December 13, 2010, 02:54:41 PM

Looks like the "getreceivedbyaccount" rpc display is broken on 0.3.18.

# ~/bin/bitcoind getnewaddress

* Does a 0.01 BTC spend from another computer to 1Fs5rqB2sXZ3kax1r3HfuYpK2ksSxLYJT8 *


# ~/bin/bitcoind getreceivedbyaccount 1Fs5rqB2sXZ3kax1r3HfuYpK2ksSxLYJT8 0

* Trying some PHP code to talk to the JSON-RPC directly *

# cat test.php
  require "";
  require "";

  $bitcoin=bitcoin_api_call("getamountreceived",array("1Fs5rqB2sXZ3kax1r3HfuYpK2ksSxLYJT8",0)); //0 confirmations. I've also tried 1+
# php test.php
stdClass Object
    [result] => 0.01
    [error] =>
    [id] => 1

So I see the 0.01 BTC on my php client, but not on the command line. Yes, "getinfo" and other commands work. Yes, I have proper "allowrpc" command line options. Yes, I've tried waiting for confirmations. I get the exact same result.

Seems to be a problem with the display when you use the bitcoind as a client?? Can anyone confirm that they have the same problem?

OS: FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p8/amd64

13  Economy / Marketplace / Mybitcoin Integration Services on: December 09, 2010, 07:42:50 PM
Hello all,

You've probably all noticed that most of my Bitcoin-related sites use Mybitcoin's SCI (Shopping Cart Interface).

Over the past few months I have literally bent their SCI PHP toolkit into different shapes to get Mybitcoin to process for all of the whacky things I sell. (From downloadable content to virtual credit cards to automated affiliate programs to collecting security deposits on trades.)

In the spirit of Christmas and Bitcoin, I'd like to offer my expertise in integrating Mybitcoin into your projects.

My rates are low and my work is solid, and best of all: you can pay me in Bitcoins! Smiley

PM or email me for details if you are interested.

15  Economy / Marketplace / Adult Affiliate System with Instant Bitcoin Payments on: December 08, 2010, 09:33:04 AM
Hey all,

I had another great idea. (I'm on a roll today...)

I've constructed 2 affiliate programs for my proof-of-concept adult sites:

Bitcoin XXX Affiliate Program
Bitcoin Gay XXX Affiliate Program

Essentially you just link to either of those sites (or both) with your Bitcoin address as your "affiliate code". The sites carry the affiliate's Bitcoin address through the mybitcoin processor and it splits the sale 50/50. The affiliate is paid instantly.

Bitcoin is a nice fit for adult affiliate programs because you can pay out as sales happen (unlike other costly methods), use the affiliate's Bitcoin address as the affiliate code (no messy registration or signup forms are needed), and of course: there are no chargebacks. Cheesy

20  Economy / Trading Discussion / Reloadable MasterCards! on: December 02, 2010, 12:59:33 AM
Hello all Bitcoiners!

If someone were to create a website to convert Bitcoins to Paxum/Payoneer they'd be a huge success overnight. I'm serious.

What is Paxum/Payoneer?

They are essentially replacements for the now defunct Epassporte. They have APIs that could enable an exchanger (you?) to have reloadable Mastercards mailed out (they handle all the mail for you) to a Bitcoiner and have those physical cards reloaded instantly at any time. Combine this with Mybitcoin, and you'd have a lean, mean, exchanging machine!

Imagine the repeat business? It would be 'off the hook'.

Paxum seems to be the new industry leader with Payoneer as a close 2nd. Both operate from favorable jurisdictions.

I suspect that Paxum is owned by the same people who used to run Epassporte, but I can't prove it.  Roll Eyes

I could build this myself and make a killing, but I'd like to put it out there. I don't want to be the largest or only exchanger. Smiley
