41  Other / Meta / Bitcointalk https is not staying secure on: March 20, 2012, 03:12:53 AM
When first landing at the website https is good, secure. As I drill down to post into a topic it becomes normal or insecure. With the latest chrome 18 it is fine until in a topic, then https is lost, backing out and refreshing 'secure' returned, enter topic, https is lost. Chrome 17 and Opera 11.61, once you drill down into a topic, the https is lost; up one directory, refreshing does not return https, it remains insecure.

Is this a site issue, a certificate issue, or a browser issue?

I'm an apt-get type of person and never have used git. Could someone explain the process?
I hacked up an example from an unrelated git tut but needs some fill in the blanks or corrections.
Are there any dependancies that need to be satisfied before running?
I don't plan on using oclvanitgen as hardware doesn't support 11.11, maybe 8 or 9. Wink Will I be limited to what I can look for?

45  Bitcoin / Pools / P2Pool Server List on: February 25, 2012, 02:07:31 AM
The goal is to provide a list of servers located near you, to make connecting locally simpler. Act locally, think globally, Cheesy .
This will help to spread the word about P2Pool, providing an opportunity to try it out without having to setup a server or node.
If you are running a P2Pool server you can share your details here. It is transitional easing to get people involved.

What's the point of making my node accessible to the public?
You like the P2Pool concept and have decided to run P2Pool for your hashing needs. You understand what it takes to maintain a server and so decide to offer your node for public use in order to help those who may not be in a position to set up a P2Pool node themselves. You understand that this isn't a way that will make you rich but it will get you positive karma points. Wink

Alert: If you have already taken the time to upgrade p2pool, it is now on version 3.1. If you haven't upgraded your node please do so as soon as possible.
For more information about the p2pool upgrade, please see:

To use a pool listed below, follow your miners instructions for connecting to a pool.
For example, to connect using CGMiner:
cgminer -o http://pool:port -u username -p password
Replace 'username' with your BTC address where the payments are to be sent.

Would you like to run P2Pool for the community, ThiagoCMC has a Complete P2Pool Guide:

#Modified: Jaycoin has built a modified p2pool node with a PHP front end to always offer diff1 shares to hashers. This helps to reduce variance in finding blocks and helps when receiving block rewards providing more consistent payouts than a standard node. Code for the mods are not yet now public. Check the P2PMining thread for details.

NothinG has created a web version of this server list, featuring graph displays of each pool.

Red Emerald has created a Python script to check the status of the servers in this list. It works like ping from Terminal but provides more detail and accuracy.

Copy the text from this link:
  • Paste the text into a text editor and name it with a .py extension.
  • Save as "all file types"
  • Choose a directory to save to: Desktop
  • In Terminal cd to the directory: Desktop
  • Issue the command:
sudo python ./
  • Wait a few seconds for results

46  Other / Off-topic / Trouble Compiling from Source: tcpdump, libpcap on: February 23, 2012, 02:42:38 AM
Looking to compile tcpdump and or libpcap on Ubuntu. Googling hasn't produced much helpful material. The goal is to update to latest stable release software and to learn compiling from source. I have tried to compile libpcap but I keep getting errors so I must be missing a dependency. Basically I thought I would be able to update libpcap and leave tcpdump 4.1.1 as is. I had installed flex and bison but they're not enough, errors still occur.

If you look below, the tcpdump version is 4.1.1, the current version is 4.2.1. The version of libpcap installed with tcpdump is 0.8, the current version of libpcap is 1.2.1.

47  Economy / Marketplace / Willing To Sell, Willing To Buy Category Codes on: February 20, 2012, 04:12:33 AM
An idea to help make posts in the market simpler to find.
It will provide sellers greater exposure to those searching to buy.
Buyers will see items similar to what they want to purchase when searching.
If your not around to *bump your thread it can still be seen via search with like items.

How does it work?
For those looking to sell items you can add a prefix to the description, which most do already, [WTS] = Willing to Sell or [WTB] = Willing to Buy.
By adding additional information to the prefix it extends its visibility when searching for items in the market.

[WTS-A] ATI 5970 Lightly Used 4 Gamez - $250 in BTC / OBO
[WTS-B] Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 - $75 - BTC Preffered
[WTS-B] 15x GA-990FXA-UD3 - Divorce - 1BTC - One Per Person
[WTS-P] Wireless Electricity Generator System - TeslaTechGuides - 100BTC
[WTS-A] 15x 5970's Priced to Sell - $300 + Free shipping - BTC only

[WTB-K] Silver and Gold - We Pay Spot - Bitcoins Paid
[WTB-A] ATI 5970 - Good Condition - Will Pay Up to $450

When searching you just put "WTS-A" in the search box and everything with that title will show up in results.

Currently I have a partial list of Category Codes that covers most items.
As needs arrise I will add more if this is adopted by the community.

Category Codes

A = Graphics Cards ex. ATI Radeon 5970 (OEM replacement fans go here.)
B = Motherboards
C = CPU, Memory, Flash, HDD
D = Power Supplies
E = PCI Express Risers
F = Water/Air Cooling
G = Games, Game Codes, Game Systems, Trading Cards
H = Complete Mining Systems
I = Gift Cards
J =
K = Bullion, Coins, Stamps
L = Laptops
M = Phones
N = Network Equipment
O = Other Computer Parts
P = Books, Manuals, Magazines, Periodicals
Q =
R =
S = Software
T =
U =
V =
W =
X =
Y =
Z = Schwag

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Oracle Java SE, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information, manipulate certain data, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), and compromise a vulnerable system.

Is anybody making miners for MenuetOS?

Since it is written entirely in assembly and talks directly to all devices and hardware, no translator, maybe it could overcome the 8 GPU barrier.

52  Other / Off-topic / Cheaper Electricity with a Bloom Box: Google was First Customer on: February 13, 2012, 06:43:45 AM
For decades, experts have agreed that solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) hold the greatest potential of any fuel cell technology. With low cost ceramic materials, and extremely high electrical efficiencies, SOFCs can deliver attractive economics without relying on CHP. But until now, there were significant technical challenges inhibiting the commercialization of this promising new technology. SOFCs operate at extremely high temperature (typically above 800C). This high temperature gives them extremely high electrical efficiencies, and fuel flexibility, both of which contribute to better economics, but it also creates engineering challenges.

Bloom has solved these engineering challenges. With breakthroughs in materials science, and revolutionary new design, Bloom's SOFC technology is a cost effective, all-electric solution.

Over a century in the making, fuel cells are finally clean, reliable, and most importantly, affordable.

Each Bloom Energy fuel cell is capable of producing about 25W... enough to power a light bulb. For more power, the cells are sandwiched, along with metal interconnect plates into a fuel cell "stack". A few stacks, together about the size of a loaf of bread, is enough to power an average home.

Current production is limited to commercial 210Kw and 105Kw units.
