41  Economy / Services / [Closed] Looking for a quick job to do for BTC on: September 10, 2013, 07:44:55 PM
I've given this some thought since I don't hang around too often here but it got me thinking,can BTC help you get a job (in exchange for BTC of course)?

I can do video editing,file convert (media files only as I have the software on my mac) and quick reviews for BTC.

If anyone can put me in the right direction or can offer a quick job that meets what my talents are,that'd be great.Please understand that this is the first time of job searching on the BTC forums so if there's anything I need to know,it'll be a great help.Thanks Smiley

Update-closed the topic as the replies were off-topic and didn't offer jobs suited to my talents (like I asked for originally).When people learn to read things more closely and not get off topic,then I'll redo this thread.For future reference if there is no suitable job meeting the criteria and talents,please just say so instead of confusing me needlessly.Thanks.
42  Bitcoin / Mining / Curious about a possible ASIC setup I could use? on: September 03, 2013, 04:42:52 PM
Since I got out of BTC mining several months back (as I was mining LTC,converting them to BTC as I got more this way,then sold them off for GBP) as my GPU isn't profitable.I've seen a lot of threads concerning ASIC miners.Question is have much cheaper options come onto the market now that are viable miners or are these cheaper options a waste of money and time.

If I was to buy a dedicated netbook (buy used for like 80 to have a low cost windows computer to plugin,setup and run the ASICs as BTC world still ignores mac users for drivers/client software that's readily availble/easy to use) and find some ASICs to pair with that netbook,what ASIC options can you recommend me?

The budget for the setup will be around 300 at least to begin with.
I've heard a bit about those USB block erupters but am unsure what kind of hash power they give vs energy use or is there a used ASIC that's packs more power? Tips would be appreciated.Thanks Smiley
43  Economy / Services / [WTS] Rent my signature for 0.04BTC a month [closed]. on: August 18, 2013, 11:30:43 PM
Since my signature is available,I'm looking to rent it out in exchange of BTC.I've done quite a few successful trades (all before the newly introduced trade reputation system on here) on here over time.

I spend most of my time on Twitter which is why I don't visit often but I'm usually online if you need any assistance or have queries.

If interested,please PM me with info such as how long you want to rent my sig for,I'll give you my BTC address,then pay upfront (I've had too many people say they'll buy then run off without paying before) and I'll apply the sig asap.

Look forward to doing business with you guys Smiley

Update-Thanks for all responses to this listing.I found a solution that fulfilled my needs at the end.Found it here
44  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] [UK] Samsung 80GB HDD on: May 15, 2013, 10:00:28 AM
I'm looking to sell off a Samsung 80GB HDD 3.5in (SATAII) interface as I'm looking to fund the big move (and I don't really appreciate having spare computer parts scattered around in my place) by selling off as many things as I can.

The HDD is in very good condition,well used,fully tested (so it won't let you down) and ready to use. Since it's 80GB,it'll be great for installing a dedicated mining OS or for a variety of other uses.

Currently selling for 15.20 (GBP) for this week only.

I'm selling this on as it offers you escrow protection as standard Smiley

45  Economy / Service Discussion / Query about setting a one stop shop here on: May 14, 2013, 03:42:49 PM
Seeing how more items are being made for sale on my Bitmit account,would it be possible to consolidate all items for sale into 1 thread so as to create a one stop shop on here that'll make life easier for everyone?

Would this be possible or is it frowned upon in here?

Do you know of any other forums,websites and marketplace type places where I can sell items as I wish to sell them all off within 4 months? Thanks for the help. Smiley
46  Economy / Goods / [WTS] [UK] Nokia N900 Extended battery on: May 02, 2013, 04:23:43 PM
I'm looking to sell off the extended battery I have for the Nokia N900 smartphone as I'm aware that some people have still held on to theirs and I thought that since I no longer have that phone,it'd be nice to sell it to someone who still has it.

I'm selling through BitMit to make life easier (as all buyers have escrow built in by default).I'm only selling to UK based buyers to keep shipping fees low.
I'm selling it here:

P.S.If the forum has a policy saying it's not ok to post BitMit links here,I'll be happy to comply with this.

Enjoy Smiley
47  Bitcoin / Hardware / Looking for an ASIC solution on: April 27, 2013, 10:42:12 PM
I'm looking for an ASIC solution that meets these requirements:
1.Must be available or have a short queue (not like BFL who quoted me 3 months from US to UK)
2.Must have actual existing products (not pre-order)
3.Must be able to buy it or use it today (or soon)
4.Must be reasonably priced (budgets can either be under $300 or no more than 1200 for the products in question-I'll sort out budgeting later once solutions are found)
5.Must be able to deliver promised returns (hashpower and BTC mined daily)
6.Must be plug and play,no setup/DIY kits involved.Anything that requires anything more than plug,play,install supplied software (must be GUI) and mine will fail this criteria.
7.Power consumption must be reasonable for the hash power provided for each respective type of ASIC.

I'm looking for someone who can post examples of ASICs that meet my requirements.Any help would be appreciated.Thanks Smiley
48  Economy / Service Discussion / Enquiry about current services used in this forum on: April 24, 2013, 05:15:02 PM
Since it's been a longtime that I've been on this forum,I've seen that many things have changed on here including new standards/guidelines on selling your goods/services.Since one of the guidelines says that you should do your research on what people would want to buy on here,I'm making this thread asking for feedback as to what sells and what doesn't as I'm hoping to sell off a few things (goods and services) as I need to declutter (and give many working items a second life which is good for everyone)

Well can you guys give me any insight on this as I wish to thrive in the BTC world?

Skills/things I can offer:
1.Some writing skills
2.Pro video editing services (as I can work remotely)
3.Tickets since I'm running some of my lotteries again via this time (as many people raised questions before and the escrow feature will reassure everyone)
4.2 HDDs (one is 80GB SATAII and other one is 300GB EIDE-I know they're old but could still be useful to some people)
5.Selling off film credits for people who wish to say they featured in a film (8 slots left)
6.Case fan (with speed controller/lights kit-Thermaltake orange 80mm fan)
7.Assorted computer parts (More info will come in due course)
8.Mi-Fi (portable 3G hotspot,currently only usable on Three UK network,sold as seen.More on that later)
9.DVI adaptor (to HDMI or Display port,I'll have to check first)
10.Rent out my forum signature for a month and more things will be available in due course.

Please no trolls,only people who are willing to give constructive feedback.
49  Economy / Services / [WTS] Rent my signature for 0.10BTC a month.Discounted. on: April 15, 2013, 05:40:08 PM
I'm looking to rent out my signature for 1 month for 0.15BTC as I thought it'd be nice to take part on these forums after a longtime of being absent on here (but then again,I'm also working hard to get into the TV industry and starting off my career isn't easy)

If anyone is interested,please post here and via PM so we can discuss details.Thanks. Smiley
50  Economy / Service Discussion / Possibility of a contactless payment phone app? on: April 07, 2013, 01:30:26 PM
I've seen that a lot of people in the BTC world are offering pre paid debit cards that let you turn BTC into real world currencies (some of these are even virtual debit cards).This has left me with a question.

If it's possible to issue/create prepaid debit cards (physical/virtual) that are reloadable in BTC and can be turned into real money,then why not create a contactless payment app which models Orange Quick Tap (UK)
or Google's wallet feature,that I could then use to pay for goods/services with my phone?

I'll sum it up for you:
1.I want to make the use of cashless payments everywhere I go in UK and abroad.
2.I have a phone capable of NFC payments (Galaxy S3 LTE)
3.I don't want to carry a wallet full of paper recipts,bank notes,coins or anything else ever again (as it just falls out anyway too often for me).
4.The BTC world certainly has a lot to offer someone like me but BTC must continue to be useful in more real world applications as I can see this taking off.
5.I want to avoid the current mess in UK where most NFC wallet apps are unavailable (Google wallet) or have conflicting standards/arbitrary restrictions over which SIM cards (Quick Tap) and phones I can use.The O2 wallet has no NFC feature and no ETA on when it'll arrive.
6.I want to turn my BTC into GBP by pre loading a virtual debit card which can then be used via the NFC app to pay in places that have PayPass/PayWave readers in the UK.
7.The NFC app must be easy to use,reload and pay with.
8.Security can be addressed like this (to avoid skimming):
a.Turn off screen=NFC chip off (You don't need NFC on when it's in your pocket)
b.Screen on=NFC chip on (only useful when you actually pay)
9.The app must let you keep records of transactions (in place of a paper recipt) you make if you want (otherwise turn it off).

I know this may seem hard but I really think that BTC has a promising future and must not be held back by lack of real world applications in all form factors.Of course I can't program anything (nor should I be expected to) but I can certainly make the proposal/idea available to people who are willing to develop it (no trolls though).

Thanks for taking the time to read this Smiley

52  Other / Off-topic / Need help with my phone on: December 03, 2012, 06:56:32 PM
I know this is off topic but I'm currently in need of help with my Galaxy S3 LTE (GT-9305 from UK and came with Jelly bean 4.1.1 when I bought it). I discovered that I can get emojis which I like the look of (a person on twitter I follow started mentioning/using them).The thing is,it says I need to switch to the android keyboard on the phone but my galaxy S3 didn't come with it (only samsung keyboard is available plus google voice typing).I didn't know where I could go for this type of thing so I thought I'd post it here.

I need help with 2 things:
1.How can I find and install 'android keyboard' (jelly bean stock like on google's devices) onto my Galaxy S3 (LTE) phone
2.How to get Emoji (Engish) dictionary after I have the android keyboard installed.

I know where to find this in the menu but I see no mention of finding and installing android keyboard on my phone for phones which don't have it for some reason:

I need help so no trolls please.It'd be nice if I can tweet messages without going through 140 characters so quickly with just a few words.Thanks Smiley
53  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Reaper giving me error 28.How to resolve it? on: October 20, 2012, 05:21:35 PM
Hi guys,
For quite a while I've enjoyed seeing substantial performance boosts on my GPU when mining LTC.until recently everything was fine.

Since today Reaper miner (v13 beta 4) decided to give me an "error 28 getting work message".

I saw that this had something to do with a timeout as I looked up the URl in the error message.Question is,how do I resolve this?

I've tried:
1.Deleting all compiled binaries and make reaper recompile them (to try and clear the fault)
2.Restarted Reaper countless times (too many to count)
3.Checked my internet connection (it's fine in every app except reaper)
4.Restarting the PC a few times to rule out system instability.(each instance came back stable)
5.Added access through my firewall (Added it as a 'trusted app' in Comodo firewall)
6.Disabling and re-enabling the firewall to rule out internet access issues.
7.Installed latest windows updates.

I'm not sure what it can be.I'd love to use cgminer but can't figure out how to put in the commands to make it work (and took too much of my time trying to troubleshoot it last time I used it)

The other miner for LTC (Scrypt miner) doesn't have this issue but will be much slower as it works on my CPU instead of GPU.

54  Economy / Trading Discussion / Exchange help for selling BTC in UK on: October 12, 2012, 09:38:45 PM
Since the exchange I use can no longer let me buy/sell BTC in UK,are there any places in the UK that I can sell my BTC for GBP (I don't want SEPA as my bank charges about 10 GBP for this to recieve it in Euros and a lot more for USD to UK bank accounts).

I used to use intersango but since Metro bank decided to stop working with Intersango,I've lost the ability to sell off my BTC.

Do you guys know of any solutions that can work for me in the UK to sell off my Bitcoins for GBP?

I want a solution that is:
a.Relatively trouble free (no issues with ID checks or if there are checks that they are quick and not excessive)
b.Must be reliable/trustworthy to avoid being a victim of a scam artist.

Any help would be appreciated. Smiley
55  Economy / Trading Discussion / Looking for a new exchange for BTC to GBP trades on: August 18, 2012, 12:05:37 PM
Ever since I got news that Intersango,a main exchange I used to use for every trade,is having issues and is constantly delaying my trades so that by the time they finally trade,I get short changed (sort of).I was forced to cancel my order when I saw that something wasn't right.If you want to address my issues,please come and help Intersango as my patience is running out.

Example-Yesterday,I placed an order of ~9.49BTC for a price of 10.20 for each BTC.The price jumped and then plummeted down to ~8 even though I saw people buying at that rate on other exchanges as I heard one guy successfully sold for $15.20 per BTC during the boom on a different exchange (I presume) at about a similar time frame I made my order (I guess as it seemed quick).

I'm looking for a new exchange that is:
b.Trades are carried out more quickly than Intersango.
c.Have some form of recourse in case I have issues
d.Let me trade from BTC to GBP.
e.Good customer service is a must as I can't afford any more screw ups like I highlighted above.

I know about Mt Gox and but what are they like?

BTC-E has demonstrated itself to be reliable but don't offer BTC/GBP trades in my experience.

Any suggestions would help thanks.
56  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Bitcoin client and Mountain Lion OSX 10.8 on: July 29, 2012, 12:01:14 AM
Since I've been able to upgrade to Mountain Lion,I was hoping for a seamless transition from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion in terms of having apps that work 100%.Sadly this hasn't been the case for the official client.
Issues spotted that the dev team should fix soon:
1.Mountain Lion complains that the ' can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer'.Remedy to devs-Get this app signed with a developer ID
User remedy until fix is applied-Go to system preferences>Security&Privacy> and select 'Anywhere' under 'Allow applications downloaded from:' category. Users who are stuck with defaults will assume that the client is a harmful app,even when it isn't because of Gatekeeper's warnings.If the app was launched before,the warning won't appear,thankfully but still, this could alarm some inexperienced users though.
2.The client stops responding when first launched everytime in OSX 10.8-I don't know why even though the whole OS is much more responsive than Snow leopard ever was with the client (0.63).Out of all apps on my newly upgraded (OS update only) MBP (MacBook Pro),the bitcoin client is the odd one out with the most crashes,non-responding and long delays before it finally loads.
3.Maybe optimise the client for OSX 10.8 while we're at it so that it's just as responsive as the rest of the system.
4.This problem seems to affect other clients as well so an advisory to the devs of those clients may be appropriate as well.

Thank you and I hope this helps you gauge the level of compatibility of the official client on OSX 10.8 (Mountain lion) so far Smiley
57  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How to solo mine LTC on: July 19, 2012, 10:54:52 AM
I'm looking into solo mining LTC on all my CPUs/GPUs between my 2 computers (PC and MBP).Question is what settings should I use for CPU scrypt miner and in reaper?Any help would be appreciated.It's mostly like what host,port and other settings I should use?What about port forwarding? How can I tell if my computers are solo mining successfully?

Also how much LTC is in a block?As solo mining only works well when blocks can be generated easily (low diff).


58  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [Need help] Setup Reaper (GPU) miner on my laptop on: July 17, 2012, 06:04:37 PM
Hi guys,this is like my other thread '[Need help] Setup reaper (gpu) miner for my main PC' but since I'm having a rather hard time with reaper on both my systems and both computers have completely different hardware/system config,I've had to make another thread dedicated to my laptop to keep things on track in my other thread.

Issues are:
1.Reaper v13 beta 4 Keeps freezing after spending a ridiculous amount of time waiting for it's  'compiling'.Well after 2 mins and no CPU/HDD intensive processes were ever run during that time.
2.What's the idea setup for an Nvidia GT330M GPU for the config files? Has 48 shaders.
3.What setup is most likely to be trouble free on my MBP when booted in win 7? That'll just work.
4.Reaper constantly uses up all my ram (RAM use went from 955Mb to 8GB,then crashing my MBP due to RAM running out,despite having a swap and using readyboost as well)

I'm losing valuable time to the other GPU LTC miners because of these damn faults and crashes and I'm losing out.
If someone can reach the creator of reaper,please tell them to reach me asap as I need them to code either a workaround or release a less buggy version.
I intend to get as many of my systems mining LTC as possible including Desktop PC (with HD6950),MacBook Pro,N900 phone (once the coder I spoke to gets it out for maemo 5 after he finishes coding it for android and can be bothered to give me download link for its installer)

Any help would be appreciated thanks. Smiley
