1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Surely this isn't a 51% attack on bitcoins, right? on: October 12, 2011, 07:49:30 PM
Deepbit is down along with other pools ( As of right now, the chart shows over 50% of all mining power is in the 'other' category. See here:
Nobody is forking the chain are they?
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin video demonstrating advancements in the bitcoin universe on: September 17, 2011, 04:31:01 PM
Hi all.
The team here at (3 brothers with too much time on their hands) have decided to create a video that discusses recent advances to the bitcoin economy. One of us is a film and animation professor, so it won't be half assed. This video will hopefully feature a few core awesome new technologies (ie bit-pay) but it will harp on smaller ones as well. The purpose of the video will be to educate non bitcoiners and to hopefully draw them into the bitcoin experience.

In creating this topic we hope to get suggestions from everyone in the forum community on what to feature in the video. Products that can be purchased (I know this topic was explored in the original bitcoin video, but much has changed since then), websites that offer bitcoin services, b+m shops that accept bitcoin, etc. will be it's focus.

FYI: nowhere in the video will there be an advertisement of other cryptocurrencies, nor will there be slander of other cryptocurrencies (even though we would love to, it's not professional). This will be all bitcoin and only bitcoin.

Thanks for any and all constructive advice.

I got this in an email:
Dear Mt.Gox user,

Your account will be blocked for violating the rules of exchange.

The Mt.Gox team

Really? I haven't traded anything on MtGox yet. Maybe Not trading is a violation!

From line reads: via
That's tip #1 it is a scam

Click the link in the email and it takes you to
Big tip off #2... Really? TLD for Tokelau? Two xx's? Lame sauce.

Anyway, enter your account details and watch your Bitcoins disappear.
Mr. Btc.
4  Economy / Goods / "Euro style' oval BTC sticker for cars, computers, or anything else! on: August 17, 2011, 03:52:46 PM

The BTC euro style sticker is finally here!

As you can see it is perfect in every way. Even the usual oval ring has been replaced by the word ‘Bitcoin’ in binary!

Nope it doesn’t get much better than this. Each sticker is printed on quality vinyl that will make your car, computer, house, dog, girlfriend, husband, cubicle, or whatever you want to stick it on look 100% better!

Plus you’ll be letting the world know how much you love Bitcoins. Order one or 10 today!

- U.S. orders:  1 sitcker is 0.6 Btc. Multiple stickers to the same address in the same order  are 1.0 Btc. for every 2 stickers. (for example 10 stickers = 5 Btc.)
- Non U.S. orders: 1 sitcker is 1 Btc. Multiple stickers to the same address in the same order  are 1.5 Btc. for every 2 stickers. (for example 10 stickers = 7.5 Btc.)

No shipping charge, no tax, nothing silly, just sweet stickers. Ordering is super simple. Head to ( for the wallet address and simple instructions. Soon you'll have your sticker! Send pictures to of where you stuck it or found others sticking it.

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / A new digitical coin - InfiniCoin! on: August 16, 2011, 05:05:19 PM
Ladies and gentlemen, let me be the first to announce a new coin. It seems that forking (now referred to as f'ing) the Bitcoin protocol is the cool thing to do lately. And I'm nothing if not cool and trendy, so here goes:

InfiniCoin! It is in fact every digital coin except for the dreaded Bitcoin. Just replace 'infini' with your name of choice and BOOM! You've got a coin! Apparently you don't even need to know much about coding or how to be a decent human being to make a new coin.

Reasons I now think it's a scam after playing with it:
- They only made one minor modification to the source code (changing 50 -> 96)
- Already mined 400k IxCoins themselves.
- Copied and leveraged bitcoin community with minimal input. Product doesn't have much value on its own.
- wallet.dat is 52mb already. Within a year that will be 3gb. This is not sustainable in terms of computer resources.


I've already started a few of my own:
MrBitcoinCoin - I've only privately mined 1.4 quadrillion which is not much since there is no limit to the total amount that can be generated
MrsBitCoin - My lady wanted her own coin, so POW she has one
FCoin - Finally a coin that says what it does - trying to f-up Bitcoins. I considered calling it 'IHateBitcoinsAndWantToSeeThemFailCoin' While extrordinarily catchy, it is a little long to type.

Anyway, Just add your favorite coin here and we'll click the buttons to steal hard working miners, help people lose faith in Bitcoins, dilute the already tiny market for digital currency, and hopefully, just maybe, destroy Bitcoins!
6  Other / Beginners & Help / List of Bitcoin Scam Sites? on: August 09, 2011, 01:50:05 AM
Does anyone know of a consolidated list of Bitcoin scam sites? Sure it would be hard to keep up with the scams, but IF such a resource existed then it would probably accelerate the bozos taking their bullcrap down.  Maybe even save some of our brothers and sisters from losing Btcs.
7  Other / Beginners & Help / software to trick W7 w/ multiple ATI cards? on: August 04, 2011, 03:20:02 PM
I've got 4 cards in one machine running Windowz 7 Ultimate. 1 is plugged into the monitor and the other 3 have dummy plugs so they all work. But these plugs are annoying! Isn't there some way to force W7 to recognize the cards even if they aren't plugged in to anything?

8  Other / Beginners & Help / 3 6950's in a MSI 870-G45. Help Please! on: July 25, 2011, 01:13:21 AM
Any help from people with this MB would be great. I've got the cable to hook up the 3rd card to the 1x PCI slot (the other 2 are in the 16x slots). When I take out on of the cards in the 16x slot, the card in the 1x slot works fine. So I know that each PCI slot works, they just won't all work at once.

In other words (somewhat redundant, I know, but) this is also what my brother tried:
I connected the card to the PCI express slot, and tried it with both no additional power and with additional power from GPU power adapters on the card. In linux I could only see 2 cards. I verified that the adapter works, by removing one of the PCI 2.0 cards, and the PCI express card worked at normal capacity.

In Windows I had dummy plugs, and I set up monitors for the cards. I could never get it to work right either.
