1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Ethos config for RX 470 on: June 23, 2018, 08:41:04 AM
I keep seeing claims of people getting hashrates of 30 MH/s on  RX 470s.

I have many tests and didn't get more than 28 Mhs.

Can anyone share with us the overclock settings for this card?
I am using ethos.

Thanks to all!

Never have I seen a city that only has negative reviews online. Every single post is only complaining about homeless people:

Person on street: I bet you $20 I know where you got them shoes!

Tourist: ...Okay <shakes>

Person on street: You got them shoes on your feet!

Tourist: Incorrect! I got them at a store, but I have them on my feet. English has thwarted you yet again my noble friend!

then you get stabbed.

Ready to lose more money? The question after the famous 'shoes' trick is this "Double or nothing, guvner. Give me your last name and I will spell your first name."
Which you, being afraid to walk away from a smiling black guy, then do - shaking his hand and sealing the bet.
He spells "y-o-u-r-l-a-s-t-n-a-m-e"

Someone stopped us acting all friendly and before we knew it we were hit with the "I bet I can tell you where you got 'dem shoes" scam. Of course I knew that the answer was "On my feet on Bourbon St" but instead of just walking away immediately as we should have, we stood there and let her (yes...HER) pull the "I bet I can spell your last name" scam out of the bag. When I didn't respond she drooped down and "shined" my tennis shoes and demanded money. I gave her a dollar and she got up in my face and said that wasn't enough. She was kinda scary so my husband gave her another dollar and she walked on. We learned a big lesson from this. Do not allow yourself to be put in this situation. If someone you don't know tries to stop you or talk to you...don't let them. Act like you don't speak English if you have to...just don't give them an opportunity to do this to you.

That city is worse than Detroit. In Detroit they are at least trying to build up an economy again with new industry. This city was hit by Katrina and they didn't even try to fix it after that!
3  Economy / Trading Discussion / Best possible crypto investment | $100 to $4,188,800 | 41888% ROI on: August 08, 2014, 02:34:27 PM
Let's start with $100:

Now on May 15, 2012 the price of Bitcoin was $5. This was one of the last days the the Bitcoin price was at this level:

Our $100 is now 20 Bitcoin.

On June 17, 2013 MegaCoin opened on Cryptsy for 0.00001250 MEC/BTC. Our 20 Bitcoin would then be 1600000 MEC.

Then on November 25, 2013 the highest selling price of MEC was 0.00238000

This 1600000 MEC converted back to BTC would then bring us to: 3808 BTC

Now if that 3808 BTC was sold on BitStamp on December 4, 2013 at a price of $1100 USD/BTC that would leave us with:


Now let's visualize that same $100 from the beginning, again as $4M:

It's crazy what the crypto world is capable of  Shocked

On August 4, 2006, AOL released a compressed text file on one of its websites containing twenty million search keywords for over 650,000 users over a 3-month period, intended for research purposes. AOL pulled the file from public access by the 7th, but not before it had been mirrored and distributed on the Internet.

Is there a page that will archive all of your Private Messages into a .zip that you can download? I have seen it before on some other forums but I don't think it is possible on this forum.

Is there a Firefox extension that will do it automatically?
9  Economy / Trading Discussion / The only real exchange rate is BTC-e. All other exchange rates are fraudulent! on: September 30, 2013, 02:44:51 AM
When someone asks you "What is the price of a Bitcoin?" you would answer the Mt. Gox exchange rate in 2011 and 2012. This year, this is no longer correct.

Mt. Gox has been refusing to process withdrawals PROOF in order to scare people into buying BTC to be able to withdraw their fortune from the site, which caused the price to rise above the "true" rate.

Mt. Gox Rate: $143.87
BitStamp Rate: $126.50
BTC-e Rate: $123.24

As you can see, Mt. Gox users are being defrauded of about $20/BTC currently. The site has tried to average all the exchanged together to make one "true" price, but this is still false because all exchanges other than BTC-e are fraudulent.

The only way an exchange can offer the true price of Bitcoin is if anyone can instantly deposit and withdraw at any time. The only exchange which can offer this service for now and for the future is BTC-e.

Here is a list of the deposit/withdraw options:

Cash deposit (USD currency) at Post of Russia

This is the only option that can guarantee instant deposits/withdrawals for all, which proves that the exchange rate is 100% real and not tampered with. Other exchanges had "cash deposits" at various banks but they all have been, or will be shut down due to problems with the law.

Anyone exchange that is accepting cash deposits for Bitcoin in the US is committing a felony! PROOF

Each financial institution that establishes, maintains, administers, or manages a private banking account or a correspondent account in the United States for a non-United States person, including a foreign individual visiting the United States, or a representative of a non-United States person shall establish appropriate, specific, and, where necessary, enhanced, due diligence policies, procedures, and controls that are reasonably designed to detect and report instances of money laundering through those accounts.

Also, any deposits made in order to sell Bitcoin would be involved in selling a ponzi scheme, because Bitcoin is recognized as a ponzi scheme by US law, since the people who originally bought are profiting from the people who are buying later, and if all people who own Bitcoins were to sell, the price would collapse to 0.
  •    The participant makes a payment of money to the company(Gox);
  •    In exchange, the participant receives the right to sell a product (or service) (Bitcoin);
  •    In exchange, the participant receives compensation for recruiting others into the program (In Bitcoin, more adopters = Higher Price);
  •    The compensation is unrelated to the sale of products (or services) to the ultimate user (Price of Bitcoin is unrelated to the crypto Bitcoin works on).

To be judged a pyramid scheme, the scheme must have all four elements.

Thus, anyone selling Bitcoins using an exchange other than BTC-e is committing a felony!

In conclusion, anyone trying to buy or sell your Bitcoins at an exchange rate other than the BTC-e rate is trying to scam you.
10  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / [WARNING] Do not sign for any BFL package you plan to get a refund on! on: September 15, 2013, 07:36:53 AM

I filed a chargeback via my credit card company recently and filed a claim with PayPal regarding BFL. Now, 4 days later, they marked my order as shipped and gave me tracking numbers that won't display on Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes. This is literally what they are doing. They did it to me as well. When they ship, REFUSE TO SIGN FOR THE PACKAGE. If you sign for the package, you accept the business agreement/transaction legally.

I did this today, after canceling on an April '13 order. They shipped anyway, told them to fuck off. (I was polite to the fedex guy)

It seems that if anyone tried to file a chargeback to get money from BFL, they will immediately ship them a package in order to make a chargeback impossible.

If you sign for a package, you can no longer get a refund from BFL!
11  Economy / Service Discussion / DeCiB3l Non-Ponzi Investment Verification Thread on: August 11, 2013, 12:11:55 AM

In this thread I will keep track of securities that I have verified. Lately there have been some securities that don't want to explicitly tell people how they are earning their money, as that would ruin their business. This would usually make their service look like a ponzi since nobody can know what their service is, so they can tell a trusted member of this forum (such as myself) what they are doing and show proof of what they are doing and I can confirm that the service is indeed legitimate.

Verified Threads

  • E-Commerce business for European market

Q: This list is stupid, it's basically the opposite of the List of ongoing scams (which is the biggest circlejerk on the forum, that thread just lists every major service that exists).
A: No, this thread is a useful way for someone to prove that their service is not a ponzi.

Q: Why do I need this?
A: There are some idiotic threads on this forum trying to scam users, and there are some legitimate businesses. I am here to differentiate them. For example BitGlory looked like the most obvious ponzi scheme, but after just a few questions it turned out to be completely legitimate, the author of the thread just wasn't clear on what exactly he was doing. (and it could use a better slogan than "stick your BTC into the Bitcoin glory hole)
12  Other / Politics & Society / #RacistVan on: August 06, 2013, 03:41:20 PM

Vans with giant billboards featuring the slogan "go home or face arrest" will be driven around London this week in an attempt to persuade illegal immigrants to leave the country.

The Home Office pilot scheme will also see the message also displayed in leaflets, posters and messages in local newspapers.

Over the next week, two vans will be driven around Hounslow, Barking & Dagenham, Ealing, Barnet, Brent and Redbridge and will show residents how many illegal migrants have recently been arrested in their area.

Immigration Minister Mark Harper said: "We are making it more difficult for people to live and work in the UK illegally. Every single day our enforcement officers are arresting, detaining and removing people with no right to be in the UK.

"But there is an alternative to being led away in handcuffs. Help and advice can be provided to those who cooperate and return home voluntarily.

"This pilot is just another part of the reforms of the immigration system that have cut out abuse and seen net migration drop to its lowest levels in nearly a decade.

"The Immigration Bill being introduced later this year will build on this work by restricting illegal migrantsí access to benefits and services."

However Don Flynn, the director of the Migrants' Rights Network, said it was a "shocking" scheme.

"The Home Office does not appear to have given a moment's consideration to the impact it will have on local community relations," he said.

"This has huge potential to ramp up mistrust and suspicion in local areas with damage being inflicted on a wide range of minority ethnic groups.

"Public accusations being flung around people who might be irregular migrants is dog whistle politics at its very worst. This is a truly shocking initiative."

And Nigel Farage attacked the Home Office plan from the right: "Government mobile billboards telling illegal immigrants they will be arrested is gesture politics aimed at trying to shoot the UKIP fox," he said on Facebook.

"The government have no idea how many illegal immigrants are in this country thus no idea what percentage have been arrested."

The message on the vans will read:

In the UK illegally? Go home or face arrest. Text HOME to 78070 for free advice, and help with travel documents. We can help you return home voluntarily without fear of arrest or detention.

Last week Romanian gypsies in London's West End, who had been begging and sleeping rough on the grass under Marble Arch, were the targets of a dawn raid.

More than 60 Roma have been camped out along Park Lane, opposite some of London's most expensive hotels and properties, for the last few weeks. Police pounced at 4am, backed by border officials, Romanian authorities and homelessness workers.

Former Lib Dem minister Sarah Teather recently attacked the government's approach to immigration as "unworkable, unjust, and nakedly political".

Teather told The Guardian she wanted to expose the fact the internal-government committee created to look at immigration reform was called the 'hostile environment working group' - designed to make Britain unwelcoming to immigrants.
13  Other / Off-topic / BREAKING: HALF OF TOR SITES COMPROMISED, INCLUDING TORMAIL on: August 04, 2013, 04:50:44 PM

The founder of Freedom Hosting has been arrested in Ireland and is awaiting extradition to USA.

In a crackdown that FBI claims to be about hunting down pedophiles, half of the onion sites in the TOR network has been compromised, including the e-mail counterpart of TOR deep web, TORmail.

This is undoubtedly a big blow to the TOR community, Crypto Anarchists, and more generally, to Internet anonymity. All of this happening during DEFCON.

If you happen to use and account name and or password combinations that you have re used in the TOR deep web, change them NOW.

Eric Eoin Marques who was arrested runs a company called Host Ultra Limited.

He has an account at WebHosting Talk forums.

A few days ago there were mass outages of Tor hidden services that predominantly effected Freedom Hosting websites.

"Down for Maintenance
Sorry, This server is currently offline for maintenance. Please try again in a few hours."

If you saw this while browsing Tor you went to an onion hosted by Freedom Hosting. The javascript exploit was injected into your browser if you had javascript enabled.

What the exploit does:

The JavaScript zero-day exploit that creates a unique cookie and sends a request to a random server that basically fingerprints your browser in some way, which is probably then correlated somewhere else since the cookie doesn't get deleted. Presumably it reports the victim's IP back to the FBI.

An iframe is injected into FH-hosted sites:

By: a guest on Aug 3rd, 2013

Which leads to this obfuscated code:

Javascript Mozilla Pastebin
Posted by Anonymous on Sun 4th Aug 02:52

By: a guest on Aug 3rd, 2013

FBI Hidden Service in connection with the JavaScript exploit:

Who's affected Time scales:

Anyone who accessed an FH site in the past two days with JavaScript enabled. Eric Eoin Marques was arrested on Sunday so that's the earliest possible date.

"In this paper we expose flaws both in the design and implementation of Torís hidden services that allow an attacker to measure the popularity of arbitrary hidden services, take down hidden services and deanonymize hidden services
Trawling for Tor Hidden Services: Detection, Measurement, Deanonymization"

The FBI Ran a Child Porn Site for Two Whole Weeks

On any other day one would say these sick perverts got what they deserved. Unfortunately the Feds are stepping far beyond just pedophiles in this latest issue.

The js inserted at Freedom Hosting? Nothing really, just an iframe inject script with a UUID embedded server-side.

The iframe then delivers an exploit kit that appears to be a JavaScript 0day leading to...something. It only attempts to exploit Firefox (17 and up) on Windows NT. There's definitely some heap spraying and some possible shell code. The suspect shell code block contains some strings that look to formulate an HTTP request, but I haven't been able to collect the final payload yet. The shell code also contains the UUID with which the exploit was delivered. Any UUID will work to get this part of the exploit.

I'm still pulling this little bundle of malware apart. So far, I've got that the attack is split across three separate files, each loaded into an iframe. Calls are made between the frames to further obfuscate the control flow. The 'content_2.html' and 'content_3.html' files are only served up if the request "looks like" Firefox and has a correct Referer header. The 'content_2.html' is loaded from the main exploit iframe and in turn loads 'content_3.html'.

Short version. Preliminary analysis: This little thing probably CAN reach out without going through Tor. It appears to be exploiting the JavaScript runtime in Firefox to download something.

UPDATE: The exploit only affects Firefox 17 and involves several JS heap-sprays. Note that the current Extended Support Release is Firefox 17, so this may also affect some large organizations using Firefox ESR.

The script will only attempt the exploit on Firefox 17, so I'm no longer worried about it being some new 0day. Enough of the "Critical" MFSAs are for various sorts of memory corruption that I don't have the time to find out if this is actually a new exploit or something seen before.

Logical outcomes from this?

1. FBI/NSA just shut down the #1 biggest hosting site and #1 most wanted person on Tor

2. Silkroad is next on their list, being the #2 most wanted (#1 was Child Porn, #2 is drugs)

3. Bitcoin and all crypto currenecies set to absolutely CRASH as a result since the feds can not completely control this currency as they please.

I don't always call the Feds agenda transparent, but when i do, I say they can be trying harder.
14  Economy / Economics / Money transaction before Bitcoin (Interesting read) on: July 30, 2013, 03:39:40 PM
I was arguing with someone over the online gambling raid's in the US, I stumbled upon this guy on Wikipedia.

His business had grown "10 to 20 per cent" every month since its inception. Five thousand clients in 70 countries - many of them online gambling operators - were using the company's technology to take payments from customers.

Before Paypal and before Bitcoin his company was the only easy way to send money through to internet to different sites. Then the DOJ/FBI kept on closing his accounts, very similar to what is happening to BTC exchanges lately.

This basically proves that money transmitters constantly had their accounts closed since the internet began.

Let me know if you are interested,

im not parting out the car. it is $6000 for the whole thing.

From Timmy Tucker to Josh ********

Can't you just sell me the door and alternator and then sell the car for $5800?

From Josh ******** to Me

who the fuck would want to buy a car without a door and alternator?

From Timmy Tucker to Josh ********

You could sell it as a Honda Accord "Jeep Wrangler" addition, built for offroading without the doors, just like a Jeep. Instead of saying the alternator was removed, say the car was modified to help the environment.

thats fucking retarded. how about you go to a junk yard
