3  Economy / Gambling / The Bitcoin Lottery! on: June 28, 2011, 03:57:50 PM
Welcome to the Bitcoin Lottery!

The Bitcoin Lottery is a completely transparent lottery. How? Well, it works like this:

1. Go to the spreadsheet and pick out a number that is not taken.

2. Once you've chosen your number, send 0.1 BTC to the following address:
Code:
1LPNAbh2D3f4vnYSs2MAfNwAiErnFQLdR1

3. After you've sent the payment, post in this thread with your bitcoin address (to identify your payment) and the number you want.

4. The lottery ends when all 16 numbers have been bought or when three days have passed without a purchase. When the lottery ends, the winner is not decided with a random number generator. Instead, the winner is decided by the last character of the last transaction hash. For example, if the hash of the last transaction is "223a77cb1c49170a37b5c74511a473ac24ecd0f6599f09d987237e2586f93432", then "2" is the winning number.

5. 95% of the BTC is awarded to the winning number (meaning 1.52 BTC if all numbers have been bought) and the remaining 5% is kept by the operator. The lottery then restarts.
If only one person bets, the bet will be returned. Also, if the last character of the last transaction is not a bought number, the second last number will be used instead. If no one has bought that number, the third to last, and so on. This way there is always a winner.

Also: You are allowed to buy multiple numbers. However, you may only make one purchase per round. This means that you can buy for example 3 numbers, but this has to be done in one purchase. This is to prevent abuse of the system, as someone could buy a number close to the end of the lottery to generate a new transaction hash if their number doesn't look like it will win. As soon as a new round starts, you may make another purchase.

So come on in and buy a number! Cheesy

5  Economy / Services / ISTQB Certified Software Tester, at your service! on: June 28, 2011, 10:12:50 AM
I am an ISTQB certified software tester (proof will be provided upon request) willing to take on some work for BTCs.

First of all, I will address the importance of testing. You may be thinking "Hey, I can just test my software on my own, right? I know my code the best."
Now, you are partially correct. Programmers find around 60% of their own errors. However, because of bias, (programmers tend to get attached to their code and their specific way of coding) having to look at the same code all day long, not knowing proper testing procedure, etc, programmers do not find that remaining 40%, and this could be critical. Software bugs can cause millions of dollars in losses. It is much, much cheaper to find bugs during development than it is to find them after launch.
Of course, a dedicated tester won't find 100% of all bugs, either. A basic principle of testing is that you cannot prove that a software is bug free, but you can prove that bugs are no longer being found.

Second, programming languages. If you desire white box testing, then it is preferred if your application is written in C/C++, C# or Java. These are the languages I regularly use, and this makes them easier for me to test. I will, however, still do white box testing of applications written in other languages, as long as you don't expect the same quality of service.

Third, pricing. I offer a few different packages, depending on what quality of testing you're after:

Black Box Package
---------------------
You will get:
* Quick and dirty black box testing (Meaning at the user level)
* A test summary report describing bugs found and possible improvements to the application and code.

Price: 0.5 BTC/h

Gray Box Package
---------------------
* Quick and dirty black box testing (Meaning at the user level)
* Quick and dirty white box testing (Meaning at the code level)
* A test summary report describing bugs found and possible improvements to the application and code.

Price: 0.8 BTC/h

Gold Box Package
---------------------
* High quality black box testing (Meaning at the user level)
* High quality white box testing (Meaning at the code level)
* A full test plan, design specification, test case specification, test procedure, test log and test incident report
* A test summary report describing bugs found and possible improvements to the application and code.

Price: 1.2 BTC/h


I will be happy to create a custom package for you or discuss pricing if desired.

If you are interested in my software testing services, please contact me either by PM or post right here in this thread.
6  Economy / Services / Swedish Translation Service - 0.001 BTC/word on: June 26, 2011, 03:21:13 PM
Do you have a website you would like to localize? An application? A book? An article? Or maybe you'd just like to say something in Swedish to your Swedish friend, without embarrassing yourself because Google Translate did a crappy job?

Welcome to my Swedish translation service!
I offer professional translations from or to Swedish. Being a native Swede, my Swedish is of course excellent. My English is almost on the same level as my Swedish. Hell, at one point in my life, I was using English so often that I started THINKING in English half of the time. I also have quite a bit of experience doing freelance translation.

Pricing is done on a per-word basis. The current rate is 0.001 BTC/word. Rate may be increased slightly for particularly complex texts, but this will all be decided upon before I begin working on the project.
Deadline is decided upon mutually. It is dependent on complexity and amount of words.

Also, no project is too small! I'll even translate single sentences for you, if you wish.

If you are interested in my services, simply post here or PM me. Tell me what you want translated, and I'll give you a price quote. We'll also discuss the deadline.

Looking forward to your business!
7  Bitcoin / Mining support / Fan regulating script? on: June 25, 2011, 06:17:38 PM
Hi.

Is there a script or application that checks the temperature of the GPU, and if it rises above a certain temp (say 80c) the fans start spinning at a certain speed (say 80-100%) and then return to normal speeds once the temperature has dropped to a specified value (say 70c)?

If not, this should be pretty easy to do, right? I know some C/C++, C# and Java programming, but I have no idea how to interact with the GPU driver to get temp and fan values.

Thanks.
8  Bitcoin / Mining support / 5850 underclocking itself on: June 21, 2011, 02:02:37 PM
So I've been mining for a while now with my two gaming computers, and I wanted to do some slight overclocking to increase my earnings a bit. I overclock my HD 5850 from core speed 725 mhz to 775 mhz. I gain ~30 mhash/s, and everything seems to be fine. But then after a couple of hours, I see my hashrate drops to 150 mhash/s. I open up the CCC and see that clock speed has been dropped to somewhere in the 400 mhz range. I try setting the clock back to default, I even try underclocking it, but nothing works. I then restart my computer, and everything works fine again. I try again, but the same thing happens.

Why does this happen? Is it a security measure when the card gets overheated? The card runs at between 75 - 82 degrees, overclocking doesn't seem to make much of a difference temperature-wise.

Thanks in advance.
9  Bitcoin / Mining / Solo or pool mining? on: June 07, 2011, 12:21:17 PM
Hi.

I've just started out mining, and I'm having a hard time deciding between solo and pool mining. I've started out with pool mining, at deepbit. I get 4-5% stales, which I understand is a lot.

I have one computer with an ATI Radeon 5870M, one with an ATI Radeon 5850 and one with an ATI Radeon 5770. I only have the first computer mining so far, but I plan to get the others up and running as well. This will lead to a total hashrate of about 600 Mhash/s.

So, with about 600 Mhash/s of processing power, is it worth it to switch over to solo mining? Or should I stick to pool mining?
