I am happy to go first if you have good rep/vouch but if you have 0 rep/trust you will go first or use an MM.

PM or post here. Would prefer to do publicly than via PM.

I cannot send to temp/free email addresses, must be ISP, business or otherwise.

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Setup my own private mining pool on: February 15, 2015, 12:20:28 AM
Hey all,

Does anybody have any useful resources which show how to setup a private mining pool? I don't want/need a web interface. I want to mine an alt which uses SHA256 and give it a try using my own miners at home. I've got a Linux system with Ubuntu. I was thinking of running one of those web setups which are most commonly used(MPOS) but there seems to be a large amount of dicking around to get it working, not for mining but accounts, verifications etc.

What is the simplest way I can setup a private pool?
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Bitcoin Core Reindexing Blocks On Disk on: January 29, 2015, 09:59:33 AM
Hey all,

So I had a motherboard failure yesterday. I swapped out my board and reconnected all my components. All drive letters are in tact, everything else works fine, my other currency wallets work fine but my bitcoin qt core blocks became corrupt.

Now my system is Reindexing Blocks on disk... Why did this happen? Nothing had changed. All my data is in tact, everything is still pointing to the right location and now I'm stuck at 2 years 5 weeks. I'm assuming this is just rearranging the blocks rather than actually downloading, I hope.

Any idea on how to prevent this in the future? If I backup the whole Bitcoin folder to an external hard drive, can I use that in the future as a backup? My wallets are all in tact.

Are there any other lighter wallets I can use where I don't have to have the whole blockchain on this system? My computer is volatile at the moment, this motherboard I'm using now could fail at any moment.

I know there would be lighter wallets but looking for something where I can just dump my wallet.dat file into and get cracking. I have my private keys dumped on hard copy.

6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Is it a good idea to have all BTC on one address on: January 19, 2015, 07:03:35 AM
Hi all,

Quick question, I have about 8 - 10 different addresses which are all used to receive payment from different sources. As such my btc is scattered all over the place but nice and neat in my wallet.

Is it a good idea to send all my BTC to one address? I've got a spare computer here which has never seen the internet so I'm thinking of generating a wallet(paper/cold) there and sending all my btc to that. What approach should I take?
7  Economy / Trading Discussion / Buying Cryptocurrency from Trade Websites without photo ID on: December 30, 2014, 05:28:20 AM
Hey all,

Now are there any legitimate websites I can use to buy Cryptocurrencies online(not only bitcoin) without needing to verify with photo identification etc? I have nothing to hide but at the same time I do not trust sending a photo of my drivers license, plus a photo of my self with a document infront of me to any source online. They say its to protect against fraud and identify theft but in the wrong hands, someone who has these photos and information can pull off some huge scams. I want to visit a website, drop in some dollars from my account and do some trading.

I really like the look of Crypsty but again do not and will not trust sending such sensitive information online. These if you lose your wallet and someone finds it, all they need is a bill from your mailbox and they can perform huge amounts of fraud under your name. Why should I trust sending it to some online source? How can I trust my information is secure? Sure maybe the website is safe but any protections can be broken and cryptocurrency is a high target for hackers.

I am from Australia and would like to do some small purchases of currencies online.
8  Economy / Goods / [WTS] Led Lenser F1R Near New Sydney on: December 26, 2014, 04:12:51 AM
Hey all,

I've got a Led Lenser F1R torch which is essentially new. Been used for about 5 minutes but prefer my HID. Awesome little torch. Fits in the palm of the hand and if I recall correctly, it pumps 1000lm.

Comes with charger, carry strap, box and papers.

Looking to chase 0.4btc. These retail for 199AUD.

I can do local pickup if you're in Sydney. Will also consider $150 cash on pickup. Willing to post world wide, never used an ESCROW service but I am PayPal verified and Purple Star on eBay with over 800 transactions. If someone is deadset keen, explain to me the ESCROW service(where the item goes to, are there fees involved etc) and we can do that.

Can provide pictures on request.

I would probably willing to trade for some mining gear(only local) with cash adj.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Questions regarding wallets and backing them up on: December 24, 2014, 02:08:31 PM
Hi all,

I hope I do not get flamed for this.

This is all regarding backing up my wallet and such.

Now how does this work? From what I gathered, bitcoins are stored on an address(if you googled my address for example, it would show you all the ins and outs and you could come to a conclusion of the amount of money in that address). Is 1 backup sufficient in this case? Or is my whole thinking wrong and that you need to make a backup every single time your wallet value changes.

I use bitcoin qt wallet. I have my wallet encrypted with a random password stored as a print out in my safe. Is this as safe as I could be? Some suggest using a paper wallet. I used to generate 3 addresses. How do I use these? Do I simply my send my btc to the addresses on these print outs? How do I then spend it or get the btc out of the account?  Is this a multistep process where you load the address into bitcoin qt then use the private key to unlock the wallet and access the coin? How can I trust that no one else has these numbers?

I really should be good at this but even I am a little confused.

I'm paranoid and you can understand why. An electronic backup of your BTC is never enough. I really would like it down on paper so long I can grasp the methods of storing and accessing my btc.

I did some searching prior to posting this. If these are answered else where please link the relevant sources.
10  Bitcoin / Hardware / Blown module what can I do? on: December 21, 2014, 01:07:25 AM
Hi all,

First post here. Got an issue. I setup my bitcoin miner, switched it on and watched speeds on the web panel. The speed on module 5 started slowly dropping before it would completely switch off. I restarted the unit and it would respond the same way.

I decide to delve into the box. This is what I found.

Two blown caps, 4 blown R158 chips and damage tracks.

Being somewhat new to mining what boards can I use in this machine? Where can I buy replacement boards? Would you deem it safe to keep using this board? The damage is done, I just don't want to be wasting energy passing through the board for no reason. The board still does 150ghash on one module and zero on the second module.

I am in Australia, so if there are any folk here in Sydney who may have a spare board, shoot me a PM and I'll see if I can pick it up.

My unit looks like the CoinCraft Desk unit on except their image is in reverse and you cannot see fans infront of the unit on their site where as mine has 4 fans(2 front 2 rear).
