1  Other / Beginners & Help / Simplest way to generate a PGP key??? on: September 28, 2020, 03:56:57 PM
Hey everyone. Not sure if this is the right section but I've been asked to encrypt a message and I'm having difficulties generating my key. I'm trying to do it on ubuntu and am following this youtube guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ww1oMgB4Lnk

But I can't seem to figure out how to generate a key as when I get to the part where it should generate after clicking ok nothing happens. In the video his system is called 'passwords and encryption keys' whereas mine is just 'passwords and keys'. Not sure if his is an older system or not. Can anyone explain how to do it or is there an simple idiot proof way to do so??? I can use a windows computer to try it but would prefer to keep it to ubuntu if possible. Thanks.
2  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Error in seed phrase generation on Coinomi??? on: August 17, 2020, 01:38:07 PM
Hi. I was wondering if anyone can help me out here??? I just generated a new coinomi wallet and it gave me two of the exact same words back to back in my 24 word recovery phrase. The penultimate two words before the last one in my phrase are the exact same. I thought that was weird as I was under the impression that they're meant to be randomly generated and the odds of that happening must be astronomical. Then when it asks me to confirm my seed on the next page I get all the way to the last three and when I click on the first same word both of them disappear when I click one of them but only one is logged which then leaves me with the last word, but when I click that it won't let me proceed, so I'm guessing this is an error. I can skip the step but if I've got a faulty seed then obviously that's very bad, so does anyone know whats gone wrong here??? Hope that makes sense. Thanks.

Hi. I saw this orange warning message in the users profile below:

This user recently woke up from a long period of inactivity.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=271877

I have two questions just out of interest:

1 How long does someone have to be inactive for that message to be shown.
2 How long is it shown for.

Apologies if these have been asked and answered before. I did a search but couldn't find anything. Will lock the thread once I get an answer.

I've been reading more and more about the poor working conditions of some of Apple's outsourced manufacturing plants. My question is, what are your thoughts?

I'm writing this from an iPad please bear in mind, so I'm not taking any high ground.

Is it enough for you to think about changing your device in future?

(Yes, it's the daily mail)
7  Other / Beginners & Help / What would you sell at? on: January 19, 2014, 09:14:37 PM
This is hypothetical, and so easier to answer, but let's say you have exactly 1 Bitcoin. The prices keep going up, with only occasional dips. The price keeps rising and rising.

What's your price? What price would you decide, 'Forget this, I'm cashing out'.
8  Other / Beginners & Help / Litecoin Mining - is it profitable? on: January 18, 2014, 11:07:13 AM
I'm an investor of bitcoin and quark, just wanting opinions.

Is joining a litecoin mining pool still a profitable venture? I haven't done ANYA math yet, but wondering about other people's experiences. Is it worth the electricity bill. I'll be using everyday pc equipment, nothing special.
