1  Local / Konu Dışı / Limonatalara da zam geldi (Hem de Özel Tüketim Vergisi) on: January 04, 2018, 04:45:58 PM
Arkadaş bir türlü anlam veremiyorum ya, özel tüketim vergisi limonata ya nasıl gelebilir ?

Limonata özel tüketim midir? Ya da alkolsüz içecekler özel tüketim midir? İhtiyaç mıdır?

Allah devletin bile hayırlısını versin.
2  Other / Politics & Society / Quitting Weed on: April 15, 2017, 12:03:05 AM
I saw the other post regarding quitting smoking, but it appeared to be more focused on cigarettes and nicotine. I've never smoke cigarettes. I have smoked weed for 15 years almost everyday. I am on my 4th day without weed cold turkey. Day 1 and 2 were brutal. I vomited. I was nauseated. That has passed. My anxiety levels are through the roof with some depression. My appetite is zero. My mood is pretty much wanting to beat the shit out of everyone and everything. Sleep? What is that? I ran 3 miles today (I ran 4-5 days a week even when I smoked). That helped tremendously. Baths help.

Anyone else quit cold turkey? Any advice? Your experience?

4  Other / Politics & Society / WTF is "White Privilege"? on: November 24, 2016, 12:58:42 AM
Ok, I'm white. I was raised by a single mother, in a 98% black part of my town. I couldn't afford college. My mom worked 3 jobs most of her life. I received used toys for Christmas. I had to get up on my own and walk to school in the hood and back everyday, being called "cool ass white boy".

After high school I got a job. A job I'm still at today. I started at the very bottom literally, now I make nearly 3X what I started. I busted my ass for years for that.

During that time I have been pulled over for no reason. Searched for no reason. Talked to like I was shit by cops. I was charged a felony for a marijuana SEED and a $5000 tax bill for a SEED.

Am I "privileged"? If so how?

6  Other / Politics & Society / Edward Snowden Has Developed An iPhone Case Meant To Kill Surveillance on: July 21, 2016, 08:21:27 PM
National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden has come up with a concept iPhone case that could prevent the government from finding your location.

Smartphones, while incredibly useful, are also the “perfect tracking device,” Snowden wrote in a co-authored paper that covers his research.

Governments can monitor a user’s location through the radio signals from the phone and this can put journalists, activists, and rights workers in danger, he warned.

On Thursday, Snowden and hacker Andrew Huang presented a possible solution. It’s called “the introspection engine,” and it’s designed to alert the user if and when the phone’s radio signals are turned on.

That may sound trivial. Smartphones generally come with an airplane mode that can turn off a phone’s cellular and Wi-Fi connections.

But even that can be misleading, Snowden warned. The GPS, for instance, will still remain active on some handsets, like the iPhone. In the worst-case scenario, malware could also infect the handset to secretly send radio transmissions, he added.

Snowden’s solution is designed to detect any errant phone signals when the handset is switched into airplane mode.

His concept functions like a battery case that can attach to an iPhone, but it also wires into the handset’s SIM card slot. A small computer in the case will then detect the handset’s radio transmissions.

Any unusual activity can trigger an alarm. A small display embedded on the case can also show updates.

To guarantee that no signals are sent out, the case could also built with a “kill switch” that disconnects power to the phone.

Snowden said that he designed the technology to help protect reporters working in dangerous situations.

 “Unfortunately, journalists can be betrayed by their own tools,” he added. That may have happened in 2012, when U.S. reporter Marie Colvin was killed while covering the Syrian civil war. A lawsuit alleges that the Syrian government assassinated her by tracking Colvin’s satellite phone communications to find her location.

Snowden’s introspection engine, however, is still just a concept. He hopes to develop a prototype over the coming year. The technology will be open source and is meant to easily be applied to other phone models.

He and Huang, who authored a book on hacking the Xbox, presented their paper on Thursday at the MIT Media Lab, with Snowden speaking on video from Russia.

Taking something apart is not an invention. Let's be real here.

When you actually invent something you don't screen print the manufacturer onto the circuit board.

Suckers!

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Cryptsy = Trash on: July 24, 2015, 08:41:17 PM
Anyone else experience horrible customer service at Cryptsy? Now they will not even respond to an email.

My account was locked due to 6 months of inactivity, ok fine. I emailed them and got a reply with a security question. I replied with my answer. I know the answer was right because there is only one possible answer. A few days later I get an email saying I never responded and Cryptsy assumes my issue had been resolved.

Well no dumbass, my account is still obviously locked. I don't have any coins in there so they can't think I trying to steal coins, there's nothing to steal.

Now when I email I get nothing. Thanks for the great service. I'll be sure to tell everyone how great you are.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Citigroup Is Testing Its Own Bitcoin: 'Citicoin' on: July 07, 2015, 09:58:27 PM
The day has come: Banks can’t ignore Bitcoin anymore. Not even the biggest of the big.

First up is Citigroup, the New York City-based global banking giant recently revealed to the International Business Times that it is developing its own version of Bitcoin. Predictably branded ‘Citicoin,’ the virtual currency was coded by Citigroup’s research and design arm, Citi Innovation. Still in the early testing phase, a patent has not been filed for the mainly open-source cryptocurrency, which is based off of Bitcoin and its core blockchain ledger technology, a chronological public ledger of all Bitcoin transactions that have ever taken place. This approach will allow for less complicated and less costly cross-border payments and other transactions.   

Citigroup, which has eyed distributed ledger tech over “the last few years,” also admitted to the Times that it has developed three internal blockchains to test its fledgling digital coins on.

While the company’s inaugural foray into virtual currency is promising -- and certainly a pioneering move within the traditional financial services industry -- it’s still a ways away from being the real deal.

“They [Citigroup’s blockchains] are all within the labs just now, so there is no real money passing through these systems yet,” Ken Moore, head of Citi Innovation Labs, told the Times. “They are at a pre-production level, to be clear.”

So far, the focus of Citigroup’s digital currency system has been on cross-border payments, with trade likely up next, Moore said.

He described Citicoin, as “an equivalent to Bitcoin,” and said it’s “up and running” within company labs in an effort to give Citigroup a head start. “It’s in the labs, but it’s to make sure we are at the leading edge of this technology and that we can exploit the opportunities within it.”

Citigroup has thrown down the virtual gauntlet. Which big bank is up next?

12  Other / Off-topic / APP Idea.....Thoughts? on: March 21, 2015, 12:14:17 AM
Here is a very basic idea I have for an app. Tell me what you think or if similar is already available.

*Allow users to check in at a location and upload photos and videos

*Ability for users to locate where other users are checked in using a map function and view photos and videos users are posting

-Example: 200 users are at the Super Bowl. All other users around the world can locate the Super Bowl on the map and see 200+ different photos and video with 100's of perspectives.

-This could be used on a smaller scale at a local bar or event. You could see what's happening before going there.

*All pics and videos would be anonymous and expire in a specific timeframe



-There much more to it and many more features, but that's the basics.


Thoughts?
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Overstock Offers It's Staff The Option To Be Paid In Bitcoin on: January 10, 2015, 01:10:45 AM
Overstock.com employees have a new option when it comes to their paychecks: bitcoin.

The online discount retailer announced Friday that it will give employees the option of being paid in the digital currency — a sign of continuing support for bitcoin from Overstock. Almost exactly a year ago, the company announced it would be accepting bitcoin as a form of payment on its website, and in the release today Overstock said more than $3 million worth of Bitcoin purchases have been made to date.

Allowing employees to receive their salaries in bitcoin will be a step toward making the currency more mainstream, said CEO Patrick Byrne. In fact, the company is taking another step: it’s installing a bitcoin ATM in its Salt Lake City, Utah, headquarters.

“Moving cryptocurrencies out of the realm of geeks and into the realm of the rest of us requires making changes at all levels of the financial ecosystem,” Byrne said in a release. “An important part of this effort is making digital money ATM accessible.”

The ATM will be available to the public too, allowing users to convert U.S. dollars into bitcoin, and vice-versa. It will be open 24 hours a day.

Bitcoin is becoming increasingly popular for retailers, with major companies such as Microsoft  MSFT -0.84%  and Fortune publisher Time Inc.  TIME -0.40%  announcing in recent months that they’ll be accepting the cryptocurrency.

This is a far cry from the early days of the bitcoin craze, when the currency was largely linked with the now-shut down “Silk Road,” which was allegedly used to sell drugs and other illicit items.

15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Can A Coins Name Alone Help It Succeed? on: November 18, 2014, 04:59:36 AM
If crypto's really take off I believe there will be more than 1 or 2 that will survive. I believe instead of asking Visa, Master Card, Discover, or American Express, we will have the option to pay in multiply cryptocoins.

So would the name of a coin alone help it succeed? Even though they don't get much attention I think Globalcoin has a good name. Also, Netcoin.

Or does the name not matter and it's all up to the dev and community? I guess I'm trying to compare early websites like business.com that sold for millions based on its name.

19  Bitcoin / Mining / Is "folding proteins at home" a good comparison to "mining" on: April 21, 2014, 06:37:30 PM
LONG time lurker. Love this website! Anyhow I find that explaining the mining process is very difficult for non-tech people to non-tech people. Stanford University does a "folding proteins at home" thing that looks similar to mining. Anyone ever heard of it and is it a good comparison?

Thanks in advance.
