42  Bitcoin / Project Development / We must add the ability to rate on bitcoin-otc.com on: March 08, 2012, 01:10:50 AM
It seems kind of silly to expect people to read a wiki page in order to use the web of trust.  Instead, there must be an easy way to allow the rating of people via the website.  In order to authenticate a user an irc bot could be used to extrapolate information from a webform and communicate with gribble.  I don't have the the technical skills to do this but I bet one of you do!

If this were done, it would allow the layman to easily rate users, thus generating a better and more reliable web of trust.

This is Lester Chambers from The Chambers Brothers.  He posted this up on his Facebook recently.  I never knew just how hard of a life this man has had.  He currently has a donation page https://www.sweetrelief.org/program/lester-chambers-fund/ but was wondering if anyone knew how to set up a bitcoin donation page.  I seem to recall there is a service that does this sort of thing but cant seem to locate it.

Here is some info from his wiki page:

In 2003, the home of Lola and Lester Chambers was broken in to and their record collection, consisting of over sixty Chambers Brothers albums and over one hundred singles, was stolen. Lola Chambers had spent twenty five years collecting Chambers Brothers records at various venues to leave these for their sons.[6] Lester Chambers developed a number of medical problems that went untreated because he lacked insurance. He later became homeless, sleeping in a rehearsal hall in Novato, California, until Yoko Ono paid to rent a home for him and his son Dylan.[7]

My roomate is a great chef.  He specializes in tasty sugary things that are bad for you.  Anyone have a request?  I'll forward it to him.

Finally switched over to android!  In good condition with no obvious scratches anywhere.  This phone was purchased from AT&T.  I can jailbreak/unlock it if desired.  I should still have the box laying around.  Missing the wall charger piece but will include the usb cord.




EDIT:

Well, it was listed on ebay and someone instantly purchased it before messaging me, and told me I needed to unlock it for the sprint network (this is not possible on sprint) so now I got stuck with the listing fees and have to relist!  GRR

Now I remember why I stopped using eBay....

Still up for grabs people!  I'm not going to offer an unlock anymore, its just too much of a hassle.  Only purchase this if you are on ATT and/or want to attempt your own unlock!  

New price $225 shipped.

This caught my eye.  I can't seem to locate any other mention of this other than from FeedzeBirds. 

48  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Altcoin tied to USD? on: February 15, 2012, 09:36:13 AM
I've never looked into altcoins, it seems like most of them aren't really offering anything new.  However, I am wondering if anyone has proposed an altcoin that was purely based upon the dollar/euro?

I understand that many people may hate this idea because the "dollar is going to DIE DIE DIE!!" but bear with me and just forget about that for a minute.

What would be the challenges of an altcoin being entirely based on the dollar?  

I can see a future where bitcoin fails, but the technology behind it implemented into a nations currency.

50  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Will Bitcoin Bennefit From "Blind Quantum Computing" ? on: January 30, 2012, 07:33:16 AM
What do you think?  How do you see bitcoin implementing this technology once it evolves/is proven?  Wouldn't this negate the need for traditional miners?

Quantum computing will use the inherent uncertainties in quantum physics to carry out fast, complex computations.

A report in Science shows the trick can extend to "cloud" services such as Google Docs without loss of security.

This "blind quantum computing" can be carried out without a cloud computer ever knowing what the data is.

Quantum computing has been heralded as the most powerful potential successor to traditional, electronics-based computing.

One of the peculiarities of the branch of physics called quantum mechanics is that objects can be in more than one state at once, with the states of different objects tied together in ways that even Albert Einstein famously referred to as "spooky".

Instead of the 0 and 1 "bits" of digital computing, quantum computing aims to make use of these mixed and entangled states to perform calculations at comparatively breathtaking speeds.

Other quantum trickery comes in cryptography, the art of encrypting data. Data is encoded in delicately prepared states - most often those of single particles of light called photons - and the data cannot be "read" without destroying them.

Quantum cryptography uses this feature to send the "keys" to decrypting messages with high security.

Is anyone doing this?  I'm not sure how it is usually done but I know it is a legit form of a loan agreement.

53  Other / Beginners & Help / Could this potentially work? Bitcoin + Bittorrent on: January 06, 2012, 03:21:16 PM
I imagine a mesh of bittorrent technology and bitcoins ability to combat double spending. Instead of the p2p system of block sharing only consisting of tokens or whatever, could we not also use it as a torrent network? Perhaps this could be used to combat piracy and also evolve the old distribution model of media into a more efficient, secure system. I imagine somehow it could be set up so that if a user where to purchase a movie/song with a bitcoin and that his unique coin key would forever be identified with that user. Or perhaps every view costs a very small amount, I would have to understand how bitcoin works properly to find a way to implement its protocol in this instance but I feel there should be an easy way.
Bittorrent is currently working on technology that allows the streaming of movies through a p2p system. Once this technology advances this could potentially work.
Perhaps the massive Hollywood production firms could contribute computing power to run/mine the system and theoretically keep costs down to a minimum and passing the savings onto consumers. Pioneer One could start doing this right now.
Fans could create mining pools with the promise all proceeds could go towards funding a tv season/movie/album etc. To take that another step further new "Kickstart" services could pop up where screen writers/artists could pitch their creative ideas in hopes fans would join a mining pool to fund said project.
Does any of this sound feasible or am I just way too stoned?
