1  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] Mostly Complete Computer for Home User on: May 24, 2013, 02:40:21 PM
I am looking for a complete or mostly complete computer build for a client of mine.

My main requirements are as follows;

1.  Must be atleast quad core cpu or apu, 2.8Ghz+  (prefer AMD as it is likely cheaper and I'm a fanboy but that is not a req)
2.  Mobo atleast having USB 3 and Sata 3 connections
3.  preferably 8GB of dual chan but will consider 4GB, 1066Mhz is fine but prefer 1333+
4.  Needs an independent vid card. Consumer grade, but atleast Nvidia 500-600 series or ATI 6xxx-7xxx (something under $100 here, like a GT 610, etc.)
5.  Vid card not needed if using APU/CPU
6.  cheap mouse/keyboard, wireless.
7.  mini wifi usb adapter. one of the lil $7-12 ones. atlast N though.
8.  minimum 500w PSU, (those lil Corsair system builders ones hold up pretty well for home users, as an example. nothing completely generic here please.)
9.  atleast mid tower sized case, nothing too plain but not too fancy either. no Lian Li (fancy) or Sun Co's (plain beige) ;p
10. Don't need monitor.
11. Needs a DVD +-RW burner, sata connection atleast. something cheap.
12. 1TB or larger HDD, sata 3, nothing less than 32mb cache, prefer 64mb.

Would like a bid for parts only shipped/drop shipped to my location in FL
And a bid for assembled with Win7 installed. Don't need key but if you got it cheap, a price for w/without key would be appreicated.

Starting prices;
-Parts only, shipped = $450 or less ( I have very similar build sitting in my Amazon cart for $350)
-Assm w/ or without key = $550 or less

Will work out payment details with any winning bidders. Can pay cash upon receipt or BTC in escrow, seller's choice.

Thanks for your time!

Kind Regards,

5  Economy / Computer hardware / Anyone ever use Bitmit? on: June 27, 2012, 03:36:23 PM
I've bougt a few things there and I do like the auction idea where you don't have to actively run it like you would doing it in a forum thread.

So, I listed one lil video card out of a bunch of stuff to see if anyone actually looks at them.

10  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Looking for a U.S. PCB/component Assembly Company on: November 21, 2011, 01:01:49 AM
  I am wondering if anyone here is familiar with any assembly companies that I may have not found in my research. I checked through 30+ companies and am wondering if there are cheaper ones out there.
The project is;

I supply the parts and PCBs
35 BOM line items
61 individual components
Single Sided SMT
Lead Free
59 SMT parts (THT included)
1 BGA package (Spartan-6 of course  Smiley )
1 QFN package
5 THT w total 13 pins

  Looking for a per board cost for single boards up to 300 boards and everything in between. I've found what I believe is the best price out there from a 'real' company. Hoping others have some they would not mind sharing. Many thanks in advance.

12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Dear Seti@Home, Please accept our Bitcoin donations on: October 28, 2011, 06:58:54 PM
  Sorry to spam the donation threads but while going through some emails I came across another great opportunity to elicit acceptance of Bitcoins.  Anyone familiar with the Seti@Home project knows that it is a distributed computing project aimed at finding 'intelligent' communications within radio waves observed in space.  I sent them a request to accept bitcoins to I'd like to encourage anyone else interested in this project or just into aiding the spread of awareness about Bitcoins to do the same.

  Their email about the current donation campaign with some updates on the project can be found here;
  I found this part here to be of interest; "We're also in the process of adding a new search algorithm to the SETI@home application. This new algorithm, called autocorrelation, will make us sensitive to certain broad band or spread spectrum transmissions without predicting their characteristics beforehand. No SETI sky survey has utilized this type of algorithm before."
  They have also been able to utilize additional radio telescopes to explore areas of the sky that are not visible from the Arecibo telescope. " But in the coming year, we plan to start continuous collection of data at the Green Bank Telescope, allowing us to listen in on parts of the sky that, up until now, we have not been able to reach." Awesome stuff!

  A direct link to their donation page can be found here;

  And of course their main website here;

  Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.


13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Wikipedia's yearly donation campaign; Time to accept Bitcoins? on: October 28, 2011, 05:54:10 PM
  Well, for those that read, support or add content to Wiki it's that time of year again when they humbly ask for donations to keep the site operating.  I don't spend a whole lot of time there but would be more than willing to donate a few bits their way if they accepted them. I am going to write them about it and would encourage anyone else that is interested to do the same.

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Anyone else heard from their ISP for having IRC connections? on: October 19, 2011, 09:17:18 PM
 I received an interesting email from ATT this morning;

  IMPORTANT COMPUTER SAFETY NOTICE from AT&T Internet Services Security Center -“IRC Traffic Detected

Our investigation shows that the following IP was assigned to your log-on session at the indicated time and was using IRC connections to a computer network which is possibly a Botnet.

Date: (UTC) => Your IP:
2011-10-18 04:45:24 => My Business T1 IP
2011-10-17 04:23:13 => My Business T1 IP
2011-10-16 02:47:36 => My Business T1 IP

IRC Botnet infected systems commonly send or receive commands that can SPAM email, spread malicious software, and perpetrate identity theft.

IRC traffic on ports other than those normally used by IRC can be an indication of backdoor trojans or bots.

IRC Botnet infected systems commonly send or receive commands that can SPAM email, spread malicious software, and perpetrate identity theft.

IRC traffic on ports other than those normally used by IRC can be an indication of backdoor trojans or bots.

Although the activity is likely unintentional, it is still in violation of AT&T's Acceptable Use Policy. To review the AT&T Acceptable Use Policy, go to:

   It was certainly news to me that they had a 'policy' against connecting to IRC servers on non default ports.  The times they reference are in direct correlation to my firing up the Bitcoin Client.. ;p
  I made sure to contact them on it none the less, because they do have a history of disabling accounts if they truely do suspect one of being 'zombiefied'.  I did not mention Bitcoin or anything but basicly told them that unless they had something in their policy about what remote IRC ports I am allowed to connect to, to please not send me further messages about it. I'm an asshole when it comes to them people. I pay for a home connection and 2 businesses worth of internet and phone servicve with them. Total about 4 grand a month, so they can kiss my shiny, white ass....

  But, it does make me wonder if they have jumped on the security bandwagon that has it in mind to flag Bitcoin related communications as infectious transmissions...?  And, will they decide to block it? They certainly are more than capable with their NAT setup to do so....  The next release of Bitcoin will have to include a built in http proxy just to fuggin work if something like that were to happen. Something to think about.

   And, also something for you agenda pushing Botnet fuckers to think about. I will be extremely pissed if because of your agenda you get 'Bitcoin' traffic in general banned..... Or is that your true goal!?!? hmmm *tinfoil hat feels warm*

  EDIT;  In hind sight. I am using whatever default nodes Bitcoin picks out. Is it possible there is/was a node in the list that just happened to be on the 'list' of servers?

17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / U.S Lawyer making subversive grab for 'bitcoin' globally! on: July 09, 2011, 07:42:03 PM
  Greetings Bitcoin Community,

 The story I am linking here shows recent comments from this scandalous lawyer person and should raise some very serious concern amongst anyone who, as many of us do, care about their freedom and are strongly opposed to any entity that threatens it!

  What started out as something that appeared to be just some random guy trying to register the trademark 'bitcoin' here in the U.S(Original BC Forum Thread; quickly became something very apparent to be much more sinister.  My primary reasoning for bringing this to the Italian community, beyond the obvious stated reasons is because in his feedback he gave publicy on TechDirt, he states, "So, is the term “Bitcoin” so notorious in Italy, for example, that when the average Italian on the street hears it, he/she immediately thinks of company zeta, and none other? Absolutely not. The same can be said for virtually every other country, including those with very large economies, such as China. In fact, it is virtually assured that no person or entity can claim that the term “Bitcoin” is identified with them in Italy."  The point of which he is trying to convey after stating that Italy is a 'First to File' country was to arrogantly tell us that he thinks he can't be stopped there.

  Furthermore, he has made it very clear in his remarks that his intentions are to be able to have the legal backing to be able to harass legitimate users of 'bitcoin' with the sole intention of achieving some monetary or other real world gains surreptitiously in any manner that he can 'legally'(I use the term 'legally' very, very loosley here) get away with it.

  I highly recommend that if you have any interests with 'bitcoin' in Italy(or any where else for that matter), be they business or otherwise that you keep close eye on this guy with your Trademark office. Sadly, I know nothing of how one would protest such things in Italy.  I can say that in the U.S while someone has newly filed it takes only going to the trademark office online and protesting such a frivolous claim and it cost nothing to do so. What I do know however is that it is much easier to combat such things before they have been snuck through.

  One last note. While I highly encourage discussing this matter amongst the community I must stress that caution should be granted to what information we choose to convey publicly. Our lawyer person, while he may be a slimeball and not have a valid leg to stand on has shown that he is no stranger to using any and all things publicly presented in any manner that may benefit himself.

  Thank you very much for your time reading this and for your support of a community, currency and ideal that has the potential to truely free us all! If you have any questions, especially with understanding anything in my poor translation please don't hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to clearify anything that is of question to you.

18  Local / Italiano (Italian) / Avvocato americano facendo afferrare sovversiva per 'bitcoin' a livello globale! on: July 09, 2011, 07:36:28 PM

  Cordiale saluto a voi,

  La storia che sto qui mostra il collegamento recenti commenti da questa

persona avvocato scandaloso e dovrebbe sollevare qualche preoccupazione

molto seria tra chi, come molti di noi, a cuore la loro libertà e si

oppongono fermamente a qualsiasi entità che minaccia!

  Quello che era iniziato come un qualcosa che sembrava essere solo una

persona a caso cercando di registrare 'bitcoin' il marchio qui negli Stati

Uniti (Originale discussione filo Forum; divenne presto qualcosa di molto

evidente ad essere molto più sinistro. Il mio ragionamento principale per

portare questo alla comunità italiana, al di là delle ovvie ragioni

dichiarato è perché nella sua reazione ha dato publicy su Techdirt,

afferma: "Allora, è il termine" Bitcoin "così famosi in Italia, per

esempio, che quando il italiana sulla strada media lo sente, lui / lei

pensa subito di società zeta, e nessun altro? Assolutamente no. Lo stesso

si può dire per quasi tutti i paesi, compresi quelli con economie molto

grandi, come la Cina. Infatti, è praticamente assicurato che nessuna

persona o ente può affermare che il termine "Bitcoin" è identificato con

loro in Italia ". Il punto di cui si sta cercando di trasmettere dopo aver

affermato che l'Italia è un 'Prima di File' paese era quello di arroganza

ci dicono che pensa non può essere fermato lì.

  Inoltre, ha reso molto chiaro nel suo discorso che le sue intenzioni

devono essere in grado di avere l'appoggio legale per essere in grado di

molestare gli utenti legittimi di 'bitcoin' con la sola intenzione di

raggiungere alcuni guadagni monetari o altro mondo reale surrettiziamente

in ogni modo che lui puo 'legalmente' (uso il termine 'legalmente' molto,

molto loosley qui) a farla franca.

  Consiglio vivamente che se hai qualche interesse con 'bitcoin' in Italia,

siano essi imprese o comunque di tenere d'occhio su questo ragazzo con il

Trademark Office. Purtroppo, non so nulla di come si potrebbe protestare

cose del genere in Italia. Posso dire che negli Stati Uniti, mentre

qualcuno ha appena presentato ci vogliono solo andare in linea ufficio

marchi e protestando una simile affermazione frivolo ed è costato nulla a

che fare così. Quello che so però è che è molto più facile per combattere

queste cose prima che siano state furtivamente attraverso.

  Un'ultima nota. Mentre incoraggiamo discutere la questione all'interno

della comunità Devo sottolineare che l'attenzione dovrebbe essere concesso

a quali informazioni abbiamo scelto di comunicare pubblicamente. La nostra

persona avvocato, mentre lui può essere un Slimeball e non avere una gamba

valido per stare su ha dimostrato che egli non è estraneo ad usare le cose

ogni e qualsiasi presentato pubblicamente in nessun modo che possa lui

stesso beneficio.

  Vi ringrazio molto per il vostro tempo a leggere questo e per il vostro

sostegno di una moneta comunitaria, e ideale che ha il potenziale di

liberare veramente tutti noi! Se avete domande, soprattutto con la

comprensione qualche cosa nel mio preghiamo cattiva traduzione non esitate

a contattarmi e farò del mio meglio per clearify tutto ciò che è di domanda

per voi.

  Devo scusarmi per la mia traduzione italiana di essere così orribile.

Purtroppo, parlo solo inglese, ma una gran voglia di condividere queste

informazioni con altri della comunità.
