1  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-10-17 BITCOINSTAR «Sex & the Satoshi - PENTHOUSE Writer Chronicles Bitcoin» on: October 17, 2013, 04:08:41 PM
https://bitcoinstar.wordpress.com/bitcoin-features/

Penthouse writer Robin Postell highlights Bitcoin and its star players in a narrative with a humorous twist. Very creative writing!

Quote
In a cathartic gush I unload on the deputy, telling him that I’m under deadline and my best friend just had a baby and my boyfriend was tired of kitty-sitting because he’d been unable to sleep for the past two nights because of it playing with his feet and I’m writing a piece about bitcoins for Penthouse, due in the morning.

“Bitcoins?” he says. “Lemme me pull over.”

For the first time in my Penthouse history, the topic I’m writing about gets more attention than the magazine I’m writing for. It’s a sign.

Hi guys!



Last Thursday, an inaugural event of the Simon Fraser University Bitcoin Club was held in Vancouver, British Columbia. We had about 40 or 50 people come out to hear a panel of speakers (including the co-founder of Free Geek Vancouver) an introductory seminar on Bitcoin. The Q&A and networking session was especially engaging! It was a great success!

A set of pics can be found here:

As the founder of this club, I just thought fellow Bitcoiners might be interested! Hope you guys enjoy the initiative of our club and the local Bitcoin community in Canada!

Much more information can be found about our club here: www.sfu.ca/bitcoin

Cheers,
Simon Fraser Bitcoin Club

I've created a few offline wallet.dat files back in summer of 2011. I've been adding coins to them (through pools) since then but I've never used them online with any bitcoin clients.

Am I safe? Am I able to access the coins later on for use? Or should I be regularly resyncing the wallets, even if I'm not spending the coins?

It says around these parts that May 15th is the last day possible to upgrade the BTC QT client.

I have a few offline wallets that I made back in 2011. Do I need to do anything? Should I sync them with the new client? Or can I just leave them as is, since I'm not going to be spending those coins?

Hi there folks,

I'm in the process of building a mining rig right now with just 2x5830.

I'll be installing either Vista or XP on it. I can't go with Linux since I've never used that before and this PC will be used by people in my family who are not tech savvy.

Should I go with Vista (64) or XP?

I've also read that it is best to disable crossfire to get the best hashrate.

But I've also heard that without a crossfire connector, I'll need to connect both monitors to get both cards working or use a dummy plug.

Is this an issue with certain versions of Windows?

Thanks guys. I appreciate any feedback.
