Dear User,

We regret to inform you that GPUMAX will be permanently closing on October 31st, 2012.

While we strongly believe in Bitcoin's continued success, our vision has always been to provide our users with the greatest opportunities to utilize their GPU processing power. Creating a mining marketplace was meant to be the first of many such opportunities, however, due to the events of recent months, we feel that the best course of action is to cease all operations.

Thank you for participating in our beta.

3  Other / Off-topic / Anyone doing alot of BluRay transcoding for HTPC use ? on: September 18, 2012, 09:26:43 PM
Anyone else here doing alot of BluRay transcoding and archiving ?

I would be interested to hear about your setup and what you use primarily for software/hardware, as although I have my own setup streamlined to the point where it works well for me, I am always looking to improve, as I know I can get it working better (ie. multi-threaded/faster etc).

My biggest problem is, it seems that regardless of what I try, I can barely get the software that I use to utilize more than 50% of available 'horsepower'....
(with the exception of RipBot264 that is...but it's SLOW).

As for my primary hardware, I currently use:

- Dual Quad Core Xeon 5550 (16 threads w/hyperthreading) 2.67 Ghz (similar to running a pair of LGA1366 i920 CPUs)
- Supermicro X8DTi-F Dual CPU LGA1366 Mainboard.
- 24 GB ECC REG Samsung PC3-8500 (6x 4GB Sticks)
- Quadro FX3700 512MB PCIe (although I do not use CUDA to enhance transcoding, it's just a card in the rig at the moment)
- LG BluRay/HDDVD Combo Drive
- 3x 40GB Intel X25-V in 120GB RAID0 Boot/Program Volume on Intel ICHr.
- 2x 150GB WD VelociRaptor in RAID0 300GB Working Volume on Areca PCIe.
- Win7 x64 OS.

The software I use:

- MKVmerge package, MKVcleaver, TSmuxer (mux and re-muxing etc).
- Handbrake (for lazy ripping/transcoding where absolute video quality doesn't matter, most times single pass).
- RipBot264 (for higher quality video work)
- MediaCoder x64 (for audio transcoding only, usually DTS 1500kbps down to AC3 384 kbps)

I currently have approx 2500+ BluRay 1080p titles archived mostly with 384kbps audio on my primary media server.

For those that are simply downloads, rather than disc rips, I always clean them up, removing un-needed subtitles, audio tracks and almost always transcode video.

I use the following bitrates for 1080p h264 Video, for archiving purposes:

- 4096 kbps (crap movies, normally the wife's horror movies or something just good enough to save).
- 5120 kbps (average bitrate for most).
- 6144 kbps (good action movies).
- 7168-8192++ kbps (reserved for stuff like 'The Fifth Element' etc)

Like I said, the software that I use on a regular basis works great, but I am always looking to get quicker results without sacrificing quality.

Anyone care to share what they are using for software ?

I just finished watching a video of a young Muslim boy dancing and singing, doing a Michael Jackson impersonation.
This is too much to bear, since MJ is a sacred figure in North America and this shouldn't be stood for.

It's now time to fire bomb and clear out signs of life in all Middle Eastern Embassies and Consulates in North America.

How to we organize this ?

6  Other / Off-topic / My Private Investigator just found out some info on Pirate on: August 31, 2012, 06:17:11 PM
I was just informed of a few things that were unclear up till now.

Pirate was recently hospitalized for head trauma that may have been received when he was abducted previously, by aliens.
It now turns out that he was implanted with alien technology that gives him the ability to see into the future and predict the outcome of certain events, but only those that were already a part of his life prior to his abduction. He can't simply go out today and purchase a winning lottery ticket, but from what I understand, there are other events that have been foretold or reveled to him, making it imperative to conclude certain parts of his current business deals.

I don't have anymore details at this time, other than the following cryptic quote, that was recorded while he was in dream state, or REM sleep....


I will try to report more, as my Private Investigator sends me more intercepted info from the Doctors etc.
7  Other / Off-topic / Yet another Hollywood Conspiracy - Thanks CGI on: August 31, 2012, 02:25:12 PM
Well, it looks like Peter Dinklage will be one of the last of his kind to enjoy TRUE fame and a proper role, as can be seen in Game of Thrones (for which he has also been warmly responded to in his role and awarded and rewarded for such).

Captain America seemed to be the 'First Straw'. What I am referring to will become more apparent in a few more sentences, I promise.

As I post this, I am currently doing a quick screening of the latest insult to pint-sized actors everywhere - Snow White and the Hunstsman (2012).

It now looks like Hollywood's needs for midgets, dwarfs and overall oddly-sized people has officially come to an end.

What a slap in the face to physical oddities everywhere.

9  Economy / Service Discussion / PPT/Pirate Pass-Through OPs need our support now, more than ever on: August 30, 2012, 09:35:58 AM
Please do not allow greed to force YOU, a PPT Bond or Account holder to fall victim to Trendon Shavers...AGAIN.

By withholding individual accounts, the PPT OPs are doing this community a favor and are helping to protect it's integrity.

If it's not clear by now, Trendon wants to SETTLE at lower value, while absolving himself in the process, of any legal recourse.

PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT in his IRC log posted by Goat.

I will also add a quote from another thread, that I posted a response to:

The guys with 5000 BTC accounts want NOTHING to do with him, so you will be over ruled, I am certain.
You don't want any of your coins back then? As I mentioned earlier, he's got us all by the balls. Not good.

He has NO ONE by the balls. HIS balls (Trendon's) shrunk up a few days ago once people began to PUBLICLY connect all of his 'dots'..

As I said before, it's far easier for him to offer a 25 BTC payout to a 50 BTC account holder (less USD value at stake) than it is for a 5000 BTC account holder to even consider accepting a 2500 BTC offer to close out.

If you notice Trendon's IRC offer, you MISSED 1 MAIN KEY POINT....

Payments will be processed directly by Bitcoin Savings & Trust to Pirate Pass-Thru sub-accounts upon verification and cleared of any outstanding conditions.


Now is the time to stick together. DO NOT allow a 'divide & conquer' attack to occur.

It's now time to let your PPT OP 'down from his cross' and allow him/her/it to DEFEND the integrity of this community. PLEASE show your support.

Payments will be processed directly by Bitcoin Savings & Trust to Pirate Pass-Thru sub-accounts upon verification and cleared of any outstanding conditions.

I should add, I have a previous account that I abandoned BEFORE creating this account over 1 year ago, after the Mt.Gox I got tired of the SPAM emails etc with user lists.
11  Economy / Lending / Looking for a 2649.462081 BTC Loan on: August 27, 2012, 04:10:15 PM
I am currently looking for a loan in the amount of 2649.462081 BTC.

I am 'good' for it and have this 'thing' coming in to cover the full amount.

I am hoping to get a bit of help from SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN BITCOIN.

Thanks for your time,
12  Economy / Speculation / manipulators miss your service and retarded clients on: August 26, 2012, 06:49:25 AM
After keeping an eye on Gox 24 hr, it seems as though the market is a much different animal than it was a few months ago.
The price is solid, considering what we all believe to be TRYING to happen. I just don't see anything of great interest happening with the price in the near future under regular trading.

What I am mainly referring to, are certain features that Bitcoinica Users had in their 'Trading Arsenals' such as GUARANTEED LIQUIDITY TRIGGERS that at one point in Bitcoin's trading history, were so easily manipulated with a decent dump (to trigger said liquidity/dump trigger points) and large buy order(s) waiting below the trigger point and along teh way down......then raise the market back up. Rinse, Repeat and collect mad cash.

Zoutong knew this (and could see it clearly from INSIDE Bitcoinica) and used it to his advantage many timed, hence the term "to be Zoutong'd" was born.
I don't care if I spelled his name wrong, he was a thief....

With smarter traders, less 'hand holding' services and a more confident community, the market now seems to be near to having a stable price by the nuts.

Good Job to everyone. 24 hours with a 0.3 variance is as stable as I have seen it lately.

Total Recall (2012) .......thought it would be a joke, but currently at the 30min mark and just whitnessing Kate Beckinsale's power-sliding crotch-takedown move, I have a feeling I am going to like this more than I thought.

14  Economy / Service Announcements / [LIMITED TIME] bitlane's debt purchasing on: August 23, 2012, 01:56:31 PM
Unfortunately, this offer will only remain for a limited time.

I am looking to increase my overall Bitcoin risk exposure and am looking to purchase outstanding debt.
Although I am not at liberty to specify exactly which debts I am looking to purchase, certain exposure and volumes will obviously be more appealing to me than others.

Here is what I am looking for:
- Clear and Concise documented deposit or investment information, showing your funds and where they exist.
- A witnessed agreement done by a 3rd party, for the transfer of debt itself.

Here is what I am offering:
- Bank Wire Transfers, Paypal, Email Money Tranfers (Canada only).

Some might look at this and think it's a bit retarded, but as always, there is a method to the madness.
I am not looking to do Bitcoins for Bitcoins. FIAT CURRENCY during this venture is the only payment I am looking to provide.

We can discuss rates etc once I am contacted and I decide whether or not I am interested in the size and exposure of your debt.

I should also add that, I am NOT looking to scoop up debt 'on the cheap'. Near-full price or even greater doesn't affect, nor will it affect my decision to purchase.

Thanks for your time,
15  Economy / Long-term offers / 2500 BTC+ @ BTCST + bitlane Forum Account for sale - 5000 BTC on: August 22, 2012, 03:53:35 AM
Let me know if you are interested.

5000 BTC buys the account I am currently posting from (close it and burn it down if you wish) and an outstanding balance of 2500+ BTC that is currently owed to me by Bitcoin Savings & Trust.

Considering the amount of havoc I wreak, some might consider this deal to be the bargain of the year.

With Love,
16  Economy / Service Discussion / The gauntlet has officially been thrown down by Trendon Shavers aka. pirateat40 on: August 21, 2012, 07:55:57 PM
In light of the continued lack of communication and failure to actually stand by his original word, I decided to PM today, replying again to the original PM from him.

Looks like we will now commence 'playing'.......


Your account has been closed.  Your funds will be sent to the withdraw address on file on Monday with the regularly scheduled interest payment.


So, how much further does this really need to go ?

Unfortunately your avoidance tactics will only work for so long. Please do not force my hand in this matter.

I am not going to beg, plead or even ask nicely at this point.


I don't know who you think you're talking to you attempt at threatening me isn't going to work.

You can take it as far as you want to take it.  I'm more than willing to make an example out of you.



Are you sure this is the stand you want to take ?

Would you like to reconsider THAT statement and tally up who has more at stake and who stands to lose more ?

The Admins have seen and CONFIRMED my communication with you, so care to take a step back and see WHO IS THREATENING WHO ?

You obviously have more at stake than I ever would for you to send me messages like this.

My "stand" is the same.  If you wanna play this game, let's play.

Good luck,


I have never backed away from a good challenge and this just so happens to be one of those times.


Well, it looks like I can no longer simply sit here and do nothing. Pirate seems to think he is above the law.

Well, you've had enough time to respond, so I will begin laying things out.

Since you have officially STOLEN my Bitcoin Savings & Trust Account as well as balance by closing it, being 4 days ago now, I think it's high time to get this party started.

Tomorrow, I will have the opportunity the meet with a Notary to have an affidavit signed.

McKinney Police Department require this done, as I am out of country and presented to them on behalf of myself, by my own local Police Department before anything can proceed.

As I see that you could care less to communicate in regards to this further, would it be fair to say that I instead make **** the primary contact on the paperwork ?

As I have said previously, you COULD HAVE AVOIDED THIS.
You are the man, you have the power...right ?

I look forward to hearing back from you at your earliest convenience, as to how I should proceed.

Ready when you are tough guy.

Make sure you know what you're doing.



Is this the reply you want to see in public ? or would you perhaps like to add anything else ?

I couldn't care less what you waste your time on.

Post away.


Well, you obviously care, otherwise you wouldn't have thrown a hissy fit, closed down my account and stole my balance in the process ?

DID I SCREW YOU OVER ? or does it seem that you are just not a man of your word ?

Come to think of it (since you probably won't reply to this anyways) why are you being such a coward and taking cheep shots at me, like YOU ARE THE MAN WITH ALL THE

POWER on IRC ? ....... yet you don't seem to be capable of saying SHIT, even if your mouth was full of it, when you come onto the forum.

How about you justify why you are a compulsive liar, from what I can tell...... ?

Am I really causing you THAT much external pressure for you ?

Pay me what is owed and this all goes away, just like it would have IF YOU KEPT YOUR WORD IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Dead Man's Switch ? PM BOTS/Not really me online ? You will get it Monday ? Trendon Shavers is a DBA ?

How much more crap do you honestly expect me to listen to ?

You might want to go ahead and inform me if this is going to actually get taken care of or not.
At this point, you have nothing left to lose, right ?

I made it very clear in my post on the closing as to why you didn't get paid on Monday. You somehow think you're special just like the many other times you threw your fits that got you banned in the past.

It takes a lot to piss me off and your reckless comments and threats just put me over the limit. So not only did "You" cause this yourself, you'll end up paying for it

in the end.

First off, let's be clear, in case your memory is a bit mine is not.

1) YOU banned me from GPUMAX for a week for telling gigavps that his nose was too far up your ass. I told you I wanted to mine, you said not to start shit, I agreed. I still don't like him.

2) YOU wrote a PM to me telling me WHEN I WOULD BE PAID BEFORE YOU CLOSED UP YOUR ENTIRE OPERATION. You have also denied me access to the site. 4 days past and this is nothing more than THEFT.

3) I am not threatening you. I am simply stating what I must do to protect my interests. If seeing you charged in a Criminal Offense happens, by all means - I DID NOT STEAL FROM YOU.

4) I repeatedly asked you NOT to bring it to this, but for some reason, your 29 year old testosterone told you otherwise.

I expect 100% including INTEREST OF THE BITCOINS you are holding hostage of mine, for simply speaking THE TRUTH.

If I am not satisfied, I will see you prosecuted to the FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW for more offences than you don't even realize you are committing.


Like I told you when you first threatened to "go after me".

Make my day. Good Luck and enjoy the ride.

17  Economy / Service Discussion / Hey Pirate, it's Monday....WHERE ARE MY BITCOINS ? on: August 21, 2012, 12:10:15 AM
As per your PM on Friday...

Your account has been closed.  Your funds will be sent to the withdraw address on file on Monday with the regularly scheduled interest payment.


You now have a very limited amount of time till the phone starts ringing. You may be in hiding, but others are not so well hid.

Do you really want to see how this plays out ? As of right now, I have about 2500 reasons to chase you down. Please don't give me anymore.


...and the hits keep rollin in....


Your account has been closed.  Your funds will be sent to the withdraw address on file on Monday with the regularly scheduled interest payment.


Where is my money ?

Keep it up and you will be the very last person to see your money.


Keep it up and YOU WILL BE #1 on my 'Action Items' List.

Trust me Trendon, I am the LAST person you want to cross.

Be a man and stick to your word.....or not.

I want my Bitcoins sent NOW, as they are over 7.5 hours LATE, according to your PREVIOUS PM to me.

If you want this to become personal, then by all means, CONTINUE TO FUCK ME OVER.

Please feel free to see the following post to confirm the validity of my PMs.

18  Other / Off-topic / I will change focus and leave Pirate alone for this thread..... on: August 20, 2012, 05:41:18 AM
I just need to blow off some steam, so what better way than to focus on the CORRUPT United States, as a whole ?

My main concern is in regards to the following:

I currently live in the Province of Alberta, Canada.
We are an Oil rich Province.
We are a Beef rich Province.
Our Provincial Economy and Resources can sustain us 200% WITHOUT help from the Federal Government...(we have the ability to be 100% Debt-free, as we have been recently).

How long do we have before the United States invade us and re-name us North Montana ?
19  Economy / Service Discussion / The Scam was never a PONZI..... the Scam was the ENDGAME. on: August 19, 2012, 02:32:15 AM
There's a reason why certain people refused to EVER talk about USD in reference to Bitcoin with his Lenders.
Bitcoin was ALWAYS Bitcoin and nothing more.....NEVER translating into a discussed amount of US Dollars.

Ever wonder how long it will take to virtually (well, literally) suck the economic life out of Bitcoin ? My guess is 2 weeks.

I for one am looking forward to an increase in my invested Bitcoins of 7% at the cost of 50% of their USD value.

20  Economy / Lending / Anyone feel like lending me 120 BTC ? on: August 17, 2012, 05:00:40 AM
As I already attempted a withdrawal from my Pirate Account and gave up after literally HOURS of waiting, I am BTC-less until Monday August 20th, at which time my BTCST Account is being forcibly closed and all funds returned to me.

I am bored and my trading account is empty. Anyone feel like lending me 120 BTC for a few days ?

My reputation should speak for itself. I am a no nonsense motherfucker who proudly speaks my mind, but my debts are always repaid.

Let me know if you are interested in making a few coins for a few day loan (Returned Monday August 20, 2012).
