2  Economy / Marketplace / Megamacs.com (Apple refurbishing center) now accepts Bitcoins! on: February 13, 2014, 04:04:18 PM
Hello everyone! I work as a tech at Megamacs in Tulsa. We refurbish and sell used Apple computers at a fraction of their original price. I've been in the bitcoin scene for a few years and managed to convince my manager to accept bitcoins on the website (and locally). Once you look at an in stock item or add something to your cart you'll see the option for bitcoin as a payment method! Please, take a look.

6  Economy / Marketplace / Megamacs - Refurbished Mac & More - Interested? on: November 02, 2013, 07:47:48 PM
Hello everyone. I'm a technician that prepares refurbished machines for Megamacs. I've run the idea of accepting Bitcoin via Bitpay to my manager and he seems interested. I'm wondering if anyone here may be a potential customer if we were to do this. If I have some positive replies to present, it could strongly encourage our manager and owner to accept it.

Thanks!
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin p2pool... What to do about transaction fees? on: May 26, 2013, 08:42:42 PM
So I found out a while ago about how, because of getting many small transactions a day, the fees for transferring your litecoins increases as you use p2pool. I originally wanted to send all of my litecoins to my btc-e account but it wanted a fee of over 4 litecoins. I was astonished! I looked around and read that letting your wallet sit for a while should help deal with this issue. So I backed up that wallet and made a new one for litecoin mining while I let the old one sit. The old one has sat for over a week and now I just tried sending the coin to my btc-e account again and now it's wanting nearly 10 (TEN) litecoins for the transfer fee. Are you freaking kidding me?

Does anyone have any idea what I can do here? There's no way I'm paying 10 litecoins for a single transfer. That's absolutely nuts. If I don't pay it, the wallet will just sit there. Can anyone help? What can I do to avoid these crazy fees?
8  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / BAMT 0.51? Where? on: April 25, 2013, 05:01:47 AM
http://bamtlinux.org/

I've been having the WORST time trying to get anything up and going on this machine. I finally got basic bitcoin mining going thanks to BAMT but I wanted to mine litecoin. I cannot seem to update cgminer in order to get this to work. I've invested countless hours into this already and was hoping there would be anything out there that would work. I noticed this. It claims to have an updated version of cgminer on it but there's no download release. A google search shows torrent links but they don't get past 30%~. Any idea if this is legit and any idea where I might find it if it is?
9  Bitcoin / Mining support / New rig, no hdd, only usb stick on: April 23, 2013, 09:58:42 AM
So I had planned to just run an OS right off of a 16GB usb drive instead of forking over extra money, space and power for a big hard drive. I tried probably every tutorial out there on how to get ANY miner set up and going in linux and everything has failed me. I've tried 3 different distros with no luck. Something always goes wrong and I get errors. Either that or the OS stops working right part way through the tutorial. So I thought I'd just go with what I already know, Windows. But apparently you can't install windows to a USB drive. Google searches only bring up how to install windows FROM a usb drive for people with no optical drives. I'm having trouble here. I won't have the money for a HDD for some time. I had planned on this working.

Another thing I thought of was using an old Pata drive. But the mobo doesn't support it. I have a PCI raid controller that accepts IDE so I tried that but there's no option to boot from that drive so windows won't let me install to it.
10  Bitcoin / Mining support / I know the calculator won't be 100% but jeez... Anyone know? on: April 19, 2013, 02:08:39 AM


I'm not sure what's going on. I've left this guy on for 3 straight days and the hash rate seems to be fine. Sometimes it says "connection problem" for just a second or so. I tried running it through the command prompt software and it says "dead" after about a day of mining. I'm not sure what's going on.
11  Economy / Currency exchange / WTB Bitcoin. $1000 worth via Dwolla transfer. on: April 05, 2013, 02:27:27 AM
I'm in the process of purchasing btc in a hurry but didn't know about mtgox changing their validation system. Now I'll have to submit documents and wait even longer to be able to transfer funds from dwolla unless someone here is willing to sell.
12  Economy / Services / Looking for strong Go players. on: September 06, 2011, 10:55:07 PM
I'm actively working on becoming a 1 dan in Go. This is my first goal. I'm seeking out mid to high dan or even professional level players for tutoring. If anyone here is that strong and feels like they might be a good enough teacher to train me to 1 dan, please let me know. I'm just hit 5k on KGS but I'm thinking I'll do well enough to get to 4k fairly soon. Thanks!

14  Other / Obsolete (buying) / Allegro / SDL game programmers & game artists on: June 22, 2011, 02:36:40 AM
Sometime in the near future, I might be looking into paying some programmers and artists for their time in contributing to some game projects I want to work on. It probably won't be soon but I want to get a feel for what's out there in the btc community so I know who to talk to in the future. If you're out there, send me some items from your portfolio and your rates. I'm looking for small time people who aren't looking for big bucks. I'm a very poor person but I've got a decent mining rig and I think I'll do well at trading BTC. Thanks.
15  Other / Obsolete (selling) / Shogun 2: Total War Steam key on: June 21, 2011, 11:52:42 PM
It was included with my new card but I already have the game. Make me an offer, please.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Help figuring out how to set up 2 video cards on: June 20, 2011, 10:19:06 PM
I've had a 6850 in my system before I learned of bitcoin. My new 6870 just came in.

I'm using GUIminer and it only recognizes both cards if they are crossfired. However, when I try to mine this way, it only gets about 230MH/s which is only 20 more than my 6850 alone got.

If I disable crossfire or take off the crossfire connector, GUIminer doesn't recognize the second card at all. What do I do? I feel like I should be getting well over 400MH/s now. Please help.
17  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / What's the slowest/oldest CPU to get for a GPU mining rig? on: June 13, 2011, 07:31:28 AM
Should we go as far back as Athlon XP / P4? Should the rules be as long as the mobo supports the video card you want to use, the CPU doesn't matter at all? I'm looking around for used desktops with enough of a PSU to throw a card in. I've been checking craigslist and such so advice on the CPU is welcome. Thanks.
18  Other / Obsolete (selling) / Anyone interested in a Sapphire HD3870? on: June 13, 2011, 04:32:44 AM
I've got a used one since I upgraded my rig to a 6850. What might it be worth? Maybe 3 BTC?
19  Other / Obsolete (selling) / igo game tutorials and elementary teaching games! 0.15 / hour on: June 12, 2011, 09:50:56 PM
Hello, everyone. For those of you who don't know what igo is, see below. I've been playing go since last October and I'm current a 6kyu on the server KGS. This is a very intermediate level. For those of you who are familiar with the game and want to learn how to play or want help progressing past the beginning stages, I'm offering tutoring services.

For introductions to the game via explanation of the rules and playing 9x9 or 13x13 games, I will charge by the hour. For full-length learning games on a 19x19 board, I'll charge by the game. Rates are 0.15BTC.




http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_(game)

"Go ("weiqi" in Chinese, "baduk" in Korean), is an ancient board game for two players that originated in China more than 2,000 years ago. The game is noted for being rich in strategy despite its relatively simple rules (see Rules of Go).
The game is played by two players who alternately place black and white stones on the vacant intersections (called "points") of a grid of 1919 lines (beginners often play on smaller 9x9 and 13x13 boards). Stones act as markers, representing one's occupation of a particular point. The object of the game is to use one's stones to surround a larger portion of the board than the opponent. Once placed on the board, stones cannot be moved. If they are surrounded by the opponent's stones, they are captured and removed from the board. When a game concludes, the controlled points (territory) are counted along with captured stones (or one's own stones, as in the Chinese rule-set) along with a predetermined compensation (called "komi," with white usually getting 6.5 points komi) to determine who has more points. Games may also be won by resignation one may resign if one has fallen too far behind in total points."



There's also a very popular anime/manga titled "Hikaru no Go" that is based around the board game. You can watch the entire series for free on Hulu and it can also be watched on Netflix instant watch. It's a great series that I highly recommend.
