1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Wallet for Android / source for private key sweep on: September 14, 2014, 09:06:32 PM
I can't find the source file for priv key sweeping. Can somebody give me the path to file please?
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Wallet for Android / Network Monitor -- different blockcount for peers on: August 02, 2013, 05:04:41 PM
Not sure if this belongs in this forum but when I check in Bitcoin Wallet 3.14's Network Monitor, I find all peers are showing block 249844. Bitcoind's getblockcount on my desktop computer is showing the same block number. But this peer:

... has been showing 249845 for several minutes now. What's that about then? No fork I trust :-O
3  Economy / Service Announcements / uk soap, moisturisers, etc for btc on: March 11, 2013, 06:08:41 PM
Hash: SHA1

^^^ I have been buying soaps and shampoos from this small company for nearly a year now, and have found their products very nice. No more big-corporate-bathroom-products for me now. :-) Anyhow, I just post this up as they have introduced a bitpay option on their web pages.

*note*: I have no financial (or other) interest in promoting this company. I just like their stuff, and thought y'all should know about the btc option. :-)

4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / getnewaddress encrypts priv-key? on: February 27, 2013, 08:28:51 AM
I am running bitcoind in linux. I have encrypted the wallet using 'walletpassphrase'. I then ran 'getnewaddress'. This generated a new keypair, and showed me the new address (call it '1address') in bash.

But getnewaddress never asked me for my wallet's encryption key though.

I then run 'dumpprivkey 1address'. And bash tells me it can't recover the priv-key.

Now, i decrypt the wallet using 'walletpassphrase'. I try 'dumpprivkey 1addressblahblah...' again and the priv-key comes up in bash.

My question is, How come the client knew the encryption key in such a way as to automatically encrypt the newly generated keypair's priv-key?
5  Bitcoin / Mining support / mining with kvm (virtualisation) on: November 27, 2012, 12:44:54 PM
How do I set up and run a stock kvm image (ubuntu running the metal and running in kvm too) to control the gpu, making mining from a virtual machine a possibility? Is anybody doing this?

edit: the gpu in this case is a 5850
6  Local / Trading und Spekulation / Help! (post in english, sorry ...) on: March 17, 2012, 02:57:30 PM
Is there any kind person in Berlin who could help me buy some flowers for delivery to a location in Berlin? If so, please message me. Payment in btc, obviously. I'm terribly sorry for communicating this message in English. I speak no German, sadly.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / three big litecoin pools down, march 16th, 2012. on: March 16, 2012, 08:40:25 AM
Thanks script kiddies.

All bitten the dust as I write. Users at are reporting p2pool under DOS attack as well. Crap.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / checkpoint on: March 08, 2012, 02:23:41 PM
I have two questions about checkpoints:

q1) Which block has most recently been designated a checkpoint.
q2) Could any body kindly post a link to any web-page that explains how and when these checkpoint locations are designated?

(I can't seem to find anything authoritative looking on the bitcoin wiki, or over at stackexchange, or on this forum that deals with that second question.)
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / small regular donations to Occupy Together on: October 07, 2011, 10:54:00 AM
Edited because my writing sucks:

I reckon it's nice for the Occupy* movement if there are firm commitments for small but regular donations. Occupy Together have forsworn donation taking, and are (for now) asking willing supporters to send donations to the Occupy Wall Street bitcoin addy:

Occupy Wall Street have of course expressly asked for bitcoin donations:

Accordingly, I will send 500 mille to Occupy Wall Street every day whilever the protest is running. My first donation is here:
On its own, it ain't much. But if others would be prepared to do the same, then the total sent to Occupy Wall Street might amount to something substantial. And remember, it isn't the amount, it's the regularity that counts here.

And of course, just because you send 500 mille per day, doesn't stop you making bigger donations as and when you feel like it.

Anybody with me for just 500 mille per day? The addy to send to is: 1Q7DQVTubbUqr5by2YoZJRKCEzj9D3LQ9w
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / some questions about -keypool=<x> on: August 08, 2011, 04:42:36 AM
when i check the balance of any address at the following url:<address_goes_here>

... i see the following text appearing in the web page:
"Every time a transaction is sent, some bitcoins are usually sent back to yourself at a new address (not included in the Bitcoin UI), which makes the balance of a single address misleading."

Q1) Does this mean the btc "sent back" are sent back to one or more of the other addresses contained in the sender's wallet.dat file?

If the answer to Q1 is "yes", then please suppose for a moment that the wallet.dat was generated with this entry in bash:
./bitcoin -keypool=0
... and then:
chmod 400 /path/to/wallet.dat

... which generates a rather skinny ~16kb wallet.dat containing only one address, as far as i can tell. (A standard issue wallet.dat is around 90kb at generation.)

Q2) If i send from this one-only-addy-wallet.dat, will the btc "sent back" be sent back to the one and only address without a hitch?

I can't see why they wouldn't, but maybe someone else can see something i can't. I hope this is not too arcane a question! Thanks for considering this.

12  Other / Meta / how to set timezone to UTC ? on: June 08, 2011, 06:07:24 PM
I can not seem to find a way of setting the timezone to UTC ? All i can do is set my location at profile > forum profile information > location, but i can't do more than that. A tick for UTC would be really nice :-)
