1  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Bitcoin -> Namecoin -> ASNCoin... some thoughts... on: July 10, 2011, 11:43:35 PM
I took a break from BTC for a bit and started playing around with Namecoin. Kinda neat, kinda a fun direction. Kinda needs some work, but I see where this is going. .bit definitely has the potential to put relieve the need for ICANN.

I'm wondering if at some point we're going to move into BGP done by blockchain. This would and could be a serious and powerful protection against any form of 'kill switching.' This gives each ASN independence from their employer, and ARIN/RIPE/etc, as well as separating identities.

Just putting out some thoughts. I'd like to see an equillibria in the amount of cipherspace I can control with my computational power, but don't wand to have to double the investment in collision power to prove it.

I guess ASN's would start to take back their original meaning, and we'd be insured against well, content delivery networks clogging our border entry, without fair exchange.

Any other thoughts? OpenBGP and BTC seem like a good area to start blending.
2  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / New AMD APUs... [AMD A8-Series] on: July 05, 2011, 07:23:44 AM
Doubt anyone has one yet, looks like they came out last week, but they are quad-core CPUs with an internal GPU core with 400 shader processors. While clearly not a powerhouse, I'm curious to hear when someone gets one and tries to mine on it.

Looks like they are about $130-150/retail. Looking at the motherboards that support Socket FM1, the most you'll be able to fit is 2ish GPU cards, but possibly a spare slot for an FPGA PCI array (the mobo's seem to be in the $100ish dollar range). Of course, all this is brand spankin' new to market. I'd probably want to wait for some more developments to arise before I look at getting one.

This may (haven't done the math here) be more cost effective then going with a Sempron considering the low wattage of these new chips (at least the AMD A8-3800 looks like the wise choice along this train of thought). The A8-3850 runs faster, with more wattage, and no TurboCore, but it doesn't really need it. If you mix-in CPU mining, it may be handy to go with the 3850.

Thoughts?

OR IF SOMEONE WANTS TO BUY ME ONE I'LL LET YOU KNOW HOW THE MINING GOES Tongue

The script should be easily adaptable from the forum postings. I'm not that great at film making, Maybe script writing to subject community investment. I know I'd love to have a film made like this, that I could play for free on XMas for all the forclosure home kids over the winter.

Just wondering if people would be interested.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Mt. Gox Dump Analysis... on: June 19, 2011, 11:44:49 PM
I am in a rush to leave the computer for a bit, but doing a quick scan of the dump file, it looks like things began to get interesting around here:

Code:

I'm sure there is more. Considering the age of those users, and it's not quite all that easy to see how sucessful the attempts were. I can poke around more upon my return.
5  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / ATI GPU Miner Health Monitoring Script... on: June 09, 2011, 04:01:07 AM
   I have this monitoring my mining box in a screen. I'm more concerned with temperature monitoring on this new mine, so this is letting me keep an eye on it. I'm thinking about putting together larger infrastructure of monitoring tools / pool swapping tools, but this is what's here and works today. Part of me wants to make it more blingy in bash, but I feel like I should just make something nice in curses. This can be made much better, but I just have it to monitor an experimental rig I'm working on and figured it may help someone else.

   May require lm-sensors.

Code:
#/bin/bash

# Mine Monitor v0.1
# (c) 2011 By LehmanSister (a pseudonymn) under the BPL
#
# Notes: needs some work to move everything into curses, and strop extra info
#
# TODO:
#       - move this to pycurses
#       - keep logs
#       - publish stats somewhere via simple protocol dujouri
#       - possible an CnC interface for multiple miners / pool control
#       - PROFIT

SLEEP_TIME_SECONDS=30
ATICONFIG_CMD=aticonfig
SENSOR_CMD=sensors

if [ -z "$@" ]
then   
        echo "mine_monitor.sh - Quick (yet ugly) GPU hardware info"
        echo "Usage: ./monitor_miner display_id_0 [display_id_1] ..."
        echo "Example: ./monitor_miner 0 1"
        echo ""
        echo "Requires lm-sensors (apt-get install lm-sensors, yum install lm-sensors"
        echo ""
        echo "(c) 2011 By LehmanSister (a pseudonymn) under the BPL"
        exit
else   
        echo "Doing Stats For $@"

        while true;
        do
                uptime
                hostname
                uname -a
                date
                echo
                echo "*** Temperature ***"
                $ATICONFIG_CMD --odgt --adapter=all

                echo "*** Clocks ***"
                $ATICONFIG_CMD --odgc --adapter=all

                for did in $@
                do
                        echo "*** GPU #$did Stats ***"
                        export DISPLAY=:0.$did; $ATICONFIG_CMD --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0"
                        export DISPLAY=:0.$did; $ATICONFIG_CMD --pplib-cmd "get temperature 0"
                        export DISPLAY=:0.$did; $ATICONFIG_CMD --pplib-cmd "get activity"
                done

                echo "*** CPU and Misc Sensors ***"
                $SENSOR_CMD

                echo
                date
                sleep 30;
                clear
        done;
