1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How will ASICs affect alt-coin mining profitability? on: May 24, 2013, 08:01:11 PM
There are no ASICs for alt-coins (yet), but how will ASICs affect alt-coin GPU mining profitability?

will the alt coin ratio vs BTC always tend to 100%?  If it does, then ASICs will make alt-coin mining unprofitable.

we can already see it is less profitable to mine pretty much every alt--you're better off mining bitcoin then trading.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / All I can think about is Bitcoin. How to get more involved? on: April 24, 2013, 08:56:11 AM
I've been playing poker professionally for about 5 years.  2 years ago i played online poker all day, studied the game, read poker forums, watched televised cash games, and played low stakes home games with friends.  But now the game bores me.  I still play for a living, but I do not have the same passion for the game anymore.

Now my passion is bitcoin.  All i think about all day is bitcoin.  all day im reading bitcointalk, r/bitcoin, #bitcoin tweets, several other sites, and i watch the price all day.

I have to get more involved in bitcoin but I dont know what to do.

- i want to mine; since you basically cant buy ASICs, i'm probably going to build a small GPU rig (i know its not very profitable--i dont care, i have to do this)
- i studied math and computer science in college, but i havent coded since i started playing poker.  i have saved up some money and i kinda wanna get back into programming
- i've brainstormed with friends about various bitcoin businesses to start but either the business already exists or theres a good reason it doesnt exist yet or its a project far beyond the scope of my capabilities
- i'm going to start going to local bitcoin meetups
- should i go to Bitcoin Conference in San Jose May 17-19?  I want to go, but I feel like i have nothing to offer

Thanks for any advice!
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / How to look up a bitcoin address? on: March 08, 2013, 09:17:46 PM
I used to use blockchain.info, but they're "moving servers".

blockexplorer.com gives me: "ERROR: unknown (Most likely my bitcoind stopped working or this page is too large/complex.)"

Is there another way to look up an address?

5  Economy / Service Discussion / Blockchain.info not sending confirmation emails on: December 03, 2012, 07:30:12 AM
I have made a few transactions with my blockchain.info wallet and I am not getting the email notifications.

I have confirmed my email and the settings are correct:



I'm gonna try setting it to email me after 1 confirmation to see if that works instead.
6  Other / Beginners & Help / Bitcoin Wiki Security Certificate expired? on: November 08, 2012, 09:37:57 PM
I get this warning from google every time i go to bitcoin wiki:

Quote
The server's security certificate is not yet valid!

You attempted to reach bitcoin.it, but the server presented a certificate that is not yet valid. No information is available to indicate whether that certificate can be trusted. Google Chrome cannot reliably guarantee that you are communicating with bitcoin.it and not an attacker. Your computer's clock is currently set to Thursday, November 8, 2012 1:40:42 PM. Does that look right? If not, you should correct any error the refresh this page.
You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site.

It's been this way for a while now.  Can I assume its safe?
