1  Economy / Goods / WTB: A bad ASICMiner Block Erupter Cube compute board or two on: January 15, 2014, 05:00:18 AM
I'm looking to pick up a few bad boards for Cubes.  They don't have to work, just need the heatsink and to be in good physical shape.

Not offering much, as they're not really worth much.  Shipping to the USA.

I'm interested in picking up one of the WebPack supported ZTEX boards (so LX75 or below).  I'd prefer one with RAM onboard, though that's not strictly required.

Looking to pay with PayPal or bitcoin.
6  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB]: Radeon 7970s, reference or DirectCU II. Paying $250/ea, PP or btc. on: September 03, 2013, 01:19:11 AM
Pretty much what the topic says.

I'm offering PayPal or Bitcoin for your 7970s.  $250/card, shipped to 98033 (USA).

The card has to WORK - I 'm not interested in broken or glitchy cards.  I will be testing all cards that come in with a burnin cycle consisting of compute and correctness checking in standard ambient conditions.

PM me if you're interested.
7  Bitcoin / Mining / The mining hardware turndown thread on: September 02, 2013, 06:40:07 PM
Just to track what's going offline, for fun...

I'm taking 16GH offline this afternoon forever.  The FPGAs are going to someone who is not using them for bitcoin.

From Wikipedia:

Emphasis mine.

Recent scholarship confirms that merchants made far more money than miners during the Gold Rush.[90][91] The wealthiest man in California during the early years of the rush was Samuel Brannan, the tireless self-promoter, shopkeeper and newspaper publisher.[92] Brannan opened the first supply stores in Sacramento, Coloma, and other spots in the gold fields. Just as the rush began he purchased all the prospecting supplies available in San Francisco and re-sold them at a substantial profit.[92] However, some gold-seekers too made substantial money. For example, within a few months in 1848, one small group of prospectors working on the Feather River retrieved a sum of gold worth more than $3 million by 2010 prices.[93]

On average, half the gold-seekers made a modest profit, after taking all expenses into account. Most, however, especially those arriving later, made little or wound up losing money.[94] Similarly, many unlucky merchants set up in settlements which disappeared, or which succumbed to one of the calamitous fires that swept the towns that sprang up. By contrast, a businessman who went on to great success was Levi Strauss, who first began selling denim overalls in San Francisco in 1853.[95]

Other businessmen, through good fortune and hard work, reaped great rewards in retail, shipping, entertainment, lodging,[96] or transportation.[97] Boardinghouses, food preparation, sewing, and laundry were highly profitable businesses often run by women (married, single, or widowed) who realized men would pay well for a service done by a woman. Brothels also brought in large profits, especially when combined with saloons and gaming houses.[98]

By 1855, the economic climate had changed dramatically. Gold could be retrieved profitably from the goldfields only by medium to large groups of workers, either in partnerships or as employees. By the mid-1850s, it was the owners of these gold-mining companies who made the money. Also, the population and economy of California had become large and diverse enough that money could be made in a wide variety of conventional businesses.[99]

The parallels... are obvious. Smiley

10  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] A handful (5-10) of Avalon loose chips for jewlery on: August 14, 2013, 08:35:09 PM
Looking to make some art out of loose Avalon chips.

I don't actually care if they work or not, and they're not going to be mined with.

Hoping to pay around 0.05/chip shipped but expecting to pay a bit more.
11  Economy / Goods / [WTB]: One fake 10oz Engelhard silver plated bar, one 1oz fake Engelhard bar on: August 12, 2013, 04:19:39 AM
I would like to obtain 1x fake 10oz Engelhard silver bar (I know they're out there), and 1x fake 1oz Engelhard silver bar.

I don't want to pay the 0.7 btc that certain people are charging on some sites, because I know they're a whole hell of a lot cheaper than that to obtain.

I'm looking to pay around 0.2 btc shipped to the USA for the 11oz of fake/plated silver.

I'd like to characterize them and test some techniques for identifying fake silver.  These bars are supposedly using a more sophisticated alloy that more accurately resembles silver than some of the older fakes.
12  Economy / Goods / Has anyone ordered from on: August 07, 2013, 05:35:25 PM
I'm debating making an order from them, but haven't found much in the line of reviews.  They're looking a bit like a new fly by night bitcoin to silver operation, but some who have looked like that are perfectly legit.

Anyone know anything about them?
13  Economy / Goods / [PSA]: Shipping gold/silver properly on: July 09, 2013, 10:20:01 PM
I'd like to take this opportunity to remind people about how to ship metals (gold/silver/etc) properly, due to seeing some creative shipping lately, some successful, some less so.

First, I'd like to thank Amagi for doing it right.  You guys rock.  Your packages are incredibly frustrating to get into without something sharp and a lot of time, and there's absolutely no way for someone to open your packages without it being really obvious.

I've also seen some far less-good shipping, and thought I'd offer a few suggestions on shipping.  This is US based, but the general concepts apply other places as well.

First, if it's a single coin or a few coins, a padded mailer is probably OK.  You should secure the coins inside the envelope though, so they don't rattle.  I've seen this done a few ways, and stapling "pockets" over a piece of backing cardboard is one of my favorites - it holds them securely.  However, if you're shipping multiple coins, it is well worth boxing them - wrap them in some paper if they're loose, and then stuff the box with packing peanuts or packing paper.

Another option is to secure the coins or small bars to a sheet of cardboard with tape, then fold the cardboard over on itsself, and pack this into a mailer.  This keeps them separated and avoids noise.

For larger orders or bars, the best way to do it is a box.  USPS offers free flat rate boxes, and these are well worth the money.  Whatever you do with the metal, make sure it doesn't rattle or clank against other bars - there's a very distinctive ring to silver especially in large bars.  Packing things tightly in bubble wrap works well, but tape the bubble wrap closed so things don't shift.  If you're shipping a partially filled tube of coins, stuff the rest with something so they don't rattle around and make noise.  Once you've got the box packed tightly so it doesn't rattle at all, tape it heavily.  If you have the fiber stranded tape, it's worth using, otherwise just ensure that there's no way it can open by accident.

Basically, if you can shake the box and have a decent confidence of what's in it, you're doing it wrong.  It should be just a heavy box with nothing obvious in it.  This stands a very good chance of getting where it's going.

The attacks you're worried about in transit are twofold.  The first is just pure package failure.  Metal, getting rattled around, and going through somewhat abusive sorting machines, will find it's way out of flat rate envelopes and similar even without any help.  You want to ensure it can never gain the momentum to break out - it has to be firmly fixed in place.

The second attack is the contents being "helped along" on their escape.  The defense against this is to simply make the package look boring and well secured.  If someone can rip the corner of an envelope quickly, empty it, and then tape it up claiming it broke in transit, they get the contents.  If the metal is rattling around, this is much more likely.

Basically, the recipient should, on receipt of the package, be somewhat annoyed by how long it takes to get into it.  This means it's packed right.

Other comments on shipping are welcome.
14  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] One or two cheap Linux-compatible netbooks shipped to USA on: June 25, 2013, 08:52:34 PM
I'm looking for something cheap, with USB 2.0, that will run Linux, and has a reliable wireless card.

I'm hoping to pay in the 0.5 btc shipped range for something along the lines of an Atom processor, 512MB-1GB RAM, etc.  I'm interested in a few.

Let me know what you have!
15  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS]: Quad LX150 FPGAs (800+MH), 8 BTC shipped, accept PayPal/Credit Card on: May 26, 2013, 04:12:04 AM
I have a quantity of FPGA miners for sale.

They are quad LX150 boards that are physically similar to ZTEX 1.15y boards, but as pictured, are NOT ztex boards.  I find them to be higher quality boards that turn in higher speeds than my "real" 1.15y boards, though obviously YMMV.

I have a number of slimline heatsinks I will include in orders as long as I have some in stock.  If you want boards without heatsinks, take 0.25 btc off the price.

I will also accept PayPal and credit cards, though I'm not confident in my ability to accept non-US based credit cards (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and I haven't yet worked out the pattern).

I will ship for free with USPS Priority Mail or better, though if you want higher speed shipping I will also ship with UPS Global Express Safer or comparable for an added fee.

I am offering bulk discounts for more than 10 boards.

I will escrow if needed, but fees will be paid by the buyer.  I will send a photo of the actual boards, with a custom message, before I ship, and I guarantee shipment within 24h of receiving payment (assuming that doesn't fall on a Sunday, holiday, or other days I can't actually ship).  If you're not confident in my ability to deliver, you can always use PayPal or your credit card.

Prices in various currency options right now:
Bitcoin: 8.0 btc
PayPal: USD$1075
Credit Card: USD$1075
16  Economy / Computer hardware / WTS: 1x ModMiner Quad, tested, working perfectly on: April 27, 2013, 08:31:13 PM
I have a working, tested ModMiner Quad for sale.  It turns in around 830-840MH/sec depending on temperatures, the fans are quiet, and it's in great shape.  I will ship internationally, but prefer shipping to the USA.  I'll accept PayPal, Bitcoin with an escrow, or if you happen to be around Seattle, cash.

Asking $1500 + shipping, and I can ship within 24h of receiving payment.

If all you're going to do is thread crap about the price, go check eBay for some recent selling prices.  $1450 is a bargain lately, especially given that they're not in stock at the store.
17  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] Quad LX150 FPGA miners @ $500 each. on: April 20, 2013, 05:13:43 PM
I'm interested in buying some number of quad FPGA miners at $500/each, shipped to the USA.

I have funding, and am happy to pay in Bitcoin or PayPal, though prefer PayPal.

I expect shipping to be under a week.  If anyone is in the Pacific Northwest USA, I would be happy to meet up and pay cash on demonstration of properly functioning units.

Anyone interested in selling?
18  Other / Beginners & Help / [WTB]: 6970s or higher, 890FXA-GD70 setups, paying PayPal. on: October 04, 2011, 01:48:06 AM
I'm interested in obtaining high end ATI GPUs for PayPal.

I'm interested in 6970s, 6950s, 5970s, 6990s, etc.

They are going to be used for other compute and not bitcoin, so I don't care too much for power efficiency.  They will all be in rackmount cases, so I am not interested in lots of GPUs hanging out on expansion slots on an oven rack.

I am also interested in 890FXA-GD70 based mainboard/CPU/RAM combos.

I drive a hard bargain, but will pay USD. Smiley

Time to liquidate!
