1  Economy / Currency exchange / WTS 0.7 Bitcoin for moneypak on: June 26, 2014, 07:08:48 PM
I have 0.7 btc I need a moneypak for today, I will not send first, but I have done plenty of trades on here before
2  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Why are people still pre-ordering asics? on: July 29, 2013, 08:48:30 AM
I don't understand why people are paying for kncminer and bitfury preorders. I remember last year and I almost bought a BFL jalapeno for 25 bitcoin. Would I have 5gigahash right now if I had, yeah probably. But I backed out at the last second because it was too good to be true. Will anyone with a BFL jalapeno mine 25BTC? Maybe but it will take them well over a year. So why is everyone ready to throw money at devices that don't exist? Not only that but these same people who are buying preorders tell people buying block erupters they are wasting their money. At least their devices actually exist. Not only that, but the prices look like a bargain compared to 25BTC jalepeno's
3  Bitcoin / Mining support / ATI system drivers on: July 29, 2013, 03:12:48 AM
Do you guys ever install them? anyone know what they do? I have no idea what is in this almost 1GB of system drivers that come with my motherboard? I always pick up my video drivers from AMD website and I currently have no devices showing missing drivers in device manager without installing them

6  Bitcoin / Mining support / Remotely uploading and executing Bash scripts (BAMT) on: March 16, 2013, 05:17:17 AM
Need some help uploading a bash file from my Windows computer to my BAMT mining rigs.  I really don't know how to use the file transfer thing on ssh so I've been using wget and dropbox as a go between. This works fine for uploading bamt.conf files. But when I upload bash files I get this message on execution "-bash: /bin/updatecg: /bin/bash^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory" This happens I believe because when I try to edit it with nano the file says converted from dos format. I am using notepad++ on windows and saving it with the unix batch file option but still it must be formatted incorrectly. Can anyone help. All the commands appear to me perfect when viewing in nano. I can copy and paste the commands directly in a new file and the script works fine.
7  Economy / Computer hardware / Acer Aspire One Netbook $70 on: February 09, 2013, 03:27:56 AM
This is the 8.9in version with the 8gb ssd (use the permanent sd card slot for storage). It has been upgraded to 1.5gb of ram. It currently has linux mint on it and I do not have a windows key for it. The ssd is too slow for windows unless you use a performance xp version. It works great for ssh into other machines and web surfing and typing. It is not fast enough for HD flash videos, though I have gotten some 720p mp4 to play. It is slightly better than average condition I would say for its age, but there are some scuffing on the lid and some small marks on the bezel around the screen. I just bought a high capacity battery for it.  Should last well over 6 hours on battery I'm only asking for $70 in BTC shipped if someone is interested. I have no issues other than the wifi switch sometimes is bothersome to get to switch so I recommend not turning it off. I'm still looking for my zippered carrying case and will include it if I find it

9  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Why people think Bitcoin is a ponzi scheme? on: November 16, 2012, 11:07:34 PM
If your like me, you probably first heard about bitcoin because you could earn money with your computer.  Although I don't think bitcoin is a ponzi scheme, I think it does make some sense to see it that way. Just take the last few weeks for instant. In anticipation of the block reward halving prices have mostly stagnated but difficulty has skyrocketed. As if after block halving there will be no more money to be made, like the end of a ponzi. People seem to be mining every coin they can in anticipation of the end and although some are hoarding it seems many are selling to recoup quickly while they still can. Now I understand alot of that is because of anticipation of new hardware.

But if as many asic devices have sold as vendors and some others would like us to believe, I can only see that after a few months people will be dumping coins to make up for the huge increase in difficulty and struggling to make their investment back. Creating a very similar cycle to where we are now, a panic. Which I believe will continue until the cost of asic devices becomes much cheaper and people see it as a good investment again and not something that will only benefit early investors. Unless a discounted used market or major competition between vendors causes a huge price decrease shortly after release it seems to me that we are heading for another several bad months like the end of last year. I think increasing the power of bitcoin mining devices so quickly will cause a bubble in what a miner can earn as profit, I don't think the bitcoin market will be able to handle, short term, terrahashes getting into the hands of someone like Inaba. (does anyone seriously think he will not be the first one to have a bfl asic?)
10  Economy / Speculation / Defaults causing sell offs? on: October 06, 2012, 08:41:17 PM
Do you think today's sell off is being caused by GLBSE closing? Do you ever think we will get to the point where a record default won't cause a dip in price?

If we want bitcoin to be more than why does it seem that we don't act like it? Price changes happen on many announcements, some I don't think that are warranted. Also many websites still update their users only here on I'm beginning to think that some major bitcointalk downtime would be a good thing. So that people realize bitcoin would go on without it
11  Economy / Computer hardware / [Closed] Bad 5970 on: September 10, 2012, 01:21:07 AM
Unfortunately I had another card fail. It was working fine until a few days ago. It will crash if you change the clock speeds at all. Its less than a year old bought from newegg but has no warranty. It does boot, it does mine (both cores), how stably I don't know? I can let it run for today on windows at stock speeds and let you know. I would keep it but I only have one windows system which only has two slots which are filled up with 7970's. I do not want to babysit it on one of my BAMT systems. Would trade for a fully working 5870 or give me an offer.

EDIT: decided to keep it, I did get it running stably on windows just not linux will probably just run it into the ground until it needs replaced, thanks for the interest
12  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / OEM 5970 RMA? on: September 05, 2012, 08:05:09 PM
Anybody have any luck getting a rma for the cheap oem 5970's that were on newegg last year or am I probably shit out of luck?
13  Economy / Currency exchange / WTS BTC for Moneypak up to $200 on: September 01, 2012, 09:47:49 PM
Looking to sell my btc at mtgox last for moneypak. Looks like my dwolla won't make it til tuesday. Please have receipt available. Will pay the $4.95 fee for any amount over $100
14  Economy / Service Discussion / Why are mtgox btc deposits taking so long? on: August 13, 2012, 06:09:44 AM
Why am I waiting a couple hours, 12-15 confirms for my bitcoins to go through. Not only am I STILL having slow withdrawal through dwolla over 5 days now, they can't even credit bitcoins now? this is getting ridiculous
15  Economy / Computer hardware / WTS Broken 5830/5850 [SOLD] on: August 12, 2012, 07:50:39 AM
Trying to find out if there is any interest in buying a broken sapphire extreme 5830 or a broken reference 5850. Both fans spin but no video. The 5850 does have some shipping damage but worked before I tried replacing a bad fan. It does have a good fan from a 6970 I believe. The 5830 was mining fine until one day it just wouldn't recognize. It was run undervolted as well. Just let me know if you want them and can offer something that makes it worth my while to ship them off. If there's interest I can upload some pics if you want
16  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Can someone recommend a 16 port switch? on: June 25, 2012, 03:41:00 AM
I currently have a gs108 netgear switch, it needs resetting a couple times a week I have no idea why. So I'm looking for a replacement. ideally with 16 ports so I have room to grow. Is there any advantages to a managed switch? At least as far as bitcoin mining is concerned? Just want something stable (even in 100f heat), any recommendations that are cheap/common.
17  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Power supply oem & 12v amp list on: June 04, 2012, 12:21:00 AM
just found this pretty useful, hope it helps someone else
18  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Has anyone used the Rosewill RBR1000-m? on: May 27, 2012, 05:37:37 AM
I got one of these used and I can't get stability on even a modest mining rig. Right now I have a rig with a sempron, flash drive, a 5970 and two 5830. I was really hoping to get 5 gpu's stable with this power supply but now I'm beginning to think that may not be possible. Almost every time I plug anything into the same circuit as the power supply the system crashes. It was stable with the 750w rosewill so I know for sure its the power supply. So I guess what I'm asking is anyone using this power supply with good results should I try to get it RMA through rosewill or should i cut my losses and return it to the seller
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoinica hack - timeline of events? on: May 13, 2012, 02:18:55 AM
I thought maybe we could put any information we have together in a timeline format maybe it will have some answers. It is my personal opinion that this hack sounds very suspicious. Especially after zhoutong no longer claiming ownership. I tried depositing some coins on that night only for the deposit not to go through. My genius idea was to go long that night something I hadn't done in months, so I deposit some BTC. They do not show up in my bitcoinica account. It seems to me based on what happened that the "hot wallet" server was offline for over 6 hours. Why wasn't something done to shut it down in over 6 hours? Who knows what the hacker was able to get in 6 hours?

times should all be utc
05/11/12 5:23 deposit 13.99
05/11/12 6:07 deposit 6.35
05/11/12 6:11 deposit 0.4011916
05/11/12 7:51 (approximately, 10 blocks after deposit) I pm on the forum zhoutong about being over 10 confirmations and nothing in account, no response
05/11/12 12:01 bitcoinica deposit email 0.4011916
05/11/12 12:01 bitcoinica deposit email 6.35

20  Economy / Computer hardware / (closed) WTB 6990 on: May 04, 2012, 08:15:02 PM
I would like to buy a 6990 with at least 3 displayport connections. I think they all have it though. Might also be willing to trade a 7970 towards it.
