1  Other / Meta / New reply notification link no longer leading to the first unread reply? on: January 06, 2014, 02:30:00 AM
Recently i noticed when i get a new reply notification in my inbox, when i click the link, it just leads me to the top of the page with the new reply instead of scrolling to the first unread reply as it used to. Is something wrong on my side, or has something changed with the forum software?
2  Other / Meta / Alternate channnel to know about what is going on while the forum is down? on: December 13, 2013, 12:55:52 AM
Is there some blog, mailing list, IRC channel or whatever, where i could go to learn about what is happening to the forum when it is down?

The city of Boston SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING in order to track and capture marathon bomber suspect #2.

4  Economy / Economics / What is the least you would buy for 1BTC? on: April 19, 2013, 11:54:18 PM
I would like to know what is the cheapest thing you would be willing to part with 1 whole BTC for, in other words, how much is 1BTC worth for you in terms of stuff? Forget fiat and BTC's current price, how much is it worth for you?

ps: after a few replies i'll post my own, don't wanna influence what people think when answering.
5  Economy / Service Discussion / I thought my wiki account was grandfathered regarding the anti-spam measures... on: April 18, 2013, 11:32:26 PM
My account at was created long before the paid anti-spam system was put in place, i could swear old accounts like mine that were in good standing had been grandfathered, but it seems it isn' i remembering things wrong or was there a decision to ungrandfather old accounts?
6  Economy / Speculation / You bunch of bitches! on: April 11, 2013, 07:30:45 PM
The only reason the price went down is because you all chickened out! Grow some fucking balls so the rest of us can be rich in peace!
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Any reasons i shouldn't move all my Bitcoin savings into a single address? on: April 04, 2013, 05:30:09 AM
I don't got much (well not as much as most people that mention how much they got), but i've been thinking, perhaps it might be a good idea to just create a new address and put all those little fractions in a single address with a fee-less transaction (i don't plan on touching that money anytime soon so waiting a few days for the transaction to get thru wouldn't be an issue for me) now while it is still possible to transfer small values without paying for the transfer than to forget about it and some point in the future endup with unspendable money 'cause of the rise of fee price and requirement.

Can anyone think of a reason i shouldn't do this?
8  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Can some sort of miner be run with the phone line's power, not making it "busy"? on: March 24, 2013, 05:01:51 AM
(I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, i only got a superficial knowledge on most things involved.)

Is there some sort of mining rig that can run out of the power from a phoneline (either directly hooked or thru some sort of adapter/transformer/wallwart thingy etc), without the phone company considering the line to be "busy" while the device is plugged and sucking energy (in other words, not preventing the phone from ringing if called nor preventing outgoing calls)?

Obviously this wouldn't be very competitive, probably even less powerful than GPUs, but since the electricity coming thru the phone line is unmetered, if it doesn't interfere with regular usage of the phone line for making and receiving calls then that's pretty much free eletricity, and free electricity + mining rig = free money (though in this case it might be just a trickle of money, still free though). But since it is quite weak, the best way to go with this would be to join a pool, obviously.

ps: I live in Brazil, most specificly São Paulo. I'm not sure if that makes much a difference, but i have the impression the landline standards and protocols might be a bit different in different parts of the world; keep that in mind.

ps2: oh, and another requirement is there must be no significant noise added into the phone line, there is a ADSL service being offered in these parts and i wouldn't want them to trace the noise to my house...
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / How to remove my mark at without having a third-party account? on: March 23, 2013, 11:06:01 PM
From what i remember, back when i put my marker there, they had their own account system, with the third-party stuff being optional; but recently with the rise of the Bitcoin price i've started getting some calls about my marker there, but now i'm more interested in buying  than selling, and i could swear i had already deleted my marker there a long time ago. But now i can't log in there since i don't have an account with Twitter, nor Facebook, nor Google Apps for Busyness, nor OpenID.

How can i get my marker there deleted?

ps: in my marker there is my phone number from some time ago, but due to a shortage of numbers the operators added an extra 9 for every mobile number in the area so it won't be a perfect match on a called ID; and i obfusctated my skype username there to avoid spambots acquiring it from the map (but the instructions on how to get the correct skype username are clearly spelled out in obfuscation, any human should be able to understand what my real skype username is). If there is some human that works there i could talk with, perhaps it might be easy to solve this...
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / /server and related doesn't work anymore with version 5 on: December 02, 2011, 10:34:58 PM
(I'm using WinXP if that matters)

I need to start Bitcoin with the /server commandline option so the batch file i created to do scheduled backups of my wallet can issue the backup command in order to safely obtain a copy of the wallet (don't wanna risk it trying to copy the original while it is being written to and ending up with a corrupt backup)

(edited to fix the command line, i am using the slash, i just got mixed up while writing the post originally)
11  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Could network routers mine with custom firmware? on: October 27, 2011, 12:25:28 AM
Some network routers can be flashed with custom firmware, there are even some linux based firmwares avaiable out there; could those firmwares be modified to include a miner? What hash per joule ratio should be expected? Would that increase their power consumption significantly? And would running a miner have any significant effect on the network performance?
12  Other / Off-topic / Would somthing like this be capable of turing complete computation? on: October 23, 2011, 12:32:30 AM
When someone mentioned 3d transistors at first i got this idea, that in the end turned out to not be what 3d transistors are like.

First lemme describe the "cell":

A cell, in this context, is a component, or group of components, with six inputs/outputs arranged like the 6 faces of a cube that behaves in the following manner:

Each pair of opposing faces are connected, but only let electricity thru based on the voltage differential of one of the other pairs (each pair obeys to one other pair and controls the remaining pair), allowing electricity in one direction if the voltage difference in it's respective commanding pair is positive, in the opposite direction if the difference is negative and in no direction if there is no voltage difference (within a threshold if the properties of the material or other components require it).

And now to define the "computing block":

A computing block is formed by an array of cells arranged in a cubic lattice, with all cells oriented the same way (each cell's X,Y and Z axis aligned and the respective +'s and -'s pointing the same direction), with arbitrary dimensions in each axis.

With some sort of external logic for routing the signals in and out (such that the routing can be changed at runtime), would a computing block such as described above actually be capable of producing meaningful results given the correct input (input being the routing patterns and trinary signals, negative current, positive current and zero current) to the point of being considered turing complete? How could the cells be built? Is there such a component already made or an already known combination of components that produces such a behavior? How would the routing logic work and how could it be built? Would the dimensions matter or algorithms for the inputs can be adapted to work on an a parallelepiped of any dimension bigger than a minimum? Could the output of the block be used for controlling the routing logic or additional elements would be needed to interpret the output and adjust the routing?
13  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Will we ever be allowed to attach arbitrary text to transactions? on: October 22, 2011, 08:30:58 PM
Among other things this could serve to explain transactions ("here's the payment for painting my house", "automatic payment from Pool X", "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!111one" etc). And of course, people could use it as a messaging system, using public key encryption when privacy is desired (since the attached messages would be visible in the blockchain to anyone).

Is this in the roadmap somewhere or currently there are no plans at all of implementing this functionality?

ps:as pointed elsewhere by someone i forgot who, this would also help with providing Bitcoin protection under freedom of expression, since any transaction could double as a message.
14  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Just entering the password once is not safe on: October 04, 2011, 10:51:01 AM
I went to encrypt my wallet, but the client only had one password field to create the password, i don't trust my typing skills enough, i don't wanna loose my money because of a typo; please change the client so that when it first asks for a password it asks the user to enter it twice and checks if the two entries match.
15  Economy / Lending / Requesting 1BTC loan from IBB on: September 30, 2011, 11:41:33 PM
Here's the thread as instructed, details are in PM.

The loan should be sent to 12YnCkap81mAC7kqWnVv8cTeUnR9ED7XHq

I'll be paying back in at most 3 days from now.
16  Bitcoin / Project Development / [IDEA] PseudoWebBot - timeweighted wordcloud of contents of the forum(s) on: September 27, 2011, 08:27:55 PM
Before anything, lemme clear somthing out; i don't have the knowledge/skills required to make this myself, i'm just posting the idea in hopes someone will pick up and make somthing.

Alright, here's the idea; using an automated crawler the system collects statistics of what is posted in the forum (or in more than one forum, and perhaps Bitcoin related news sites), more specificly, words and common group of words (discarding useless things like the word "do" alone, expressions like "what does" etc), and displays the results as a wordcloud; the final "weight" of each word or expression would be defined by the frequency it is seen, and the calculation of the frequency would be weighted with how recent the post (or last edit to the post) was, so old things won't be weighted as much as newer things.

Even better if it's somthing interactive, letting the user specify time periods, moments other than "now" as when things weight more, restrict to only certain subsections of the forum etc. Also somthing like Google's Ngram viewer for seeing the evolution of different words and expressions over time would be great as well; and the ability to "play" the wordcloud gradually changing the top weight time at user specified rates would be interesting too (would make it easy to see when topics explode in popularity and then fade).
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / [SPAMMER ALERT] Las BitVegas is spamming using the old leaked MtGox database on: September 27, 2011, 02:02:17 AM
EDIT by hazek: Please note that this business is not the same business as the one advertised here:


I've just received a spam from Las BitVegas sent specificly to the unique address i had on 'Gox during the time the database was leaked. If they're shady enough to spam emails from a leaked database i definitely wouldn't trust them to be fair at all in gambling matters.

edit:btw, i wasn't sure where this would be best suited so i just posted in the general section, please move it to where it would be the most appropriate if necessary.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Attack on Namecoin Called Off. Ok, but what if instead... on: September 15, 2011, 07:44:09 PM
Without this open threat what would've been the ETA for the fix? And what would be the expected fall out if someone performed the attack without announcing it beforehand?
19  Economy / Services / I'll try to draw anything you ask, you decide how much (if anything) to pay. on: August 27, 2011, 01:37:13 AM
Ok, here's the deal, you ask me to draw somthing, i'll try to draw it, then when i have somthing done i'll post here and you decide how much to pay me, even zero.

I dunno if it'll be any good, but you got nothing to loose Smiley

ps:i'll only take the first few requests (and depending on how things go i'll take more requests after delivering the first drawings)
