1  Economy / Currency exchange / Intersango Notice on: October 10, 2012, 05:27:34 AM
Interesting, seems us yanks are pulling out of Interscamgo
Found this in my inbox today

Intersango via
3:19 PM

Intersango's USD market will stop trading 2012-10-14 at approximately midnight UTC.

At this time we ask that persons with USD funds either place a withdrawal request or purchase bitcoins.

To facilitate persons wishing to purchase bitcoins Intersango has placed 625 BTC up for sale at 12.1 USD.

Unfortunately the USD market is simply too small to justify it's ongoing operation.
2  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / BFL's new "highspeed manufacturing" capability? on: October 01, 2012, 08:32:07 PM

Another very interesting factor I believe is that BFL is about to introduce the very first "High speed manufacturing" to the Bitcoin world.

Just how many units per day will their new facility produce?

Will the guys going on their "magical mystery tour" bring back video's?

I've seen claims of catching up on ALL pre-orders by Christmas which would be truly impressive!

Will we buy them up as fast as they can produce them on into the new year?

And what about ASIC product life cycle?

Interesting times to come indeed.
3  Economy / Computer hardware / Win7x64 + Intel 40GB SSD +ram + 4 Cablesaurus x16>x16 flexible extender(SOLD) on: July 01, 2012, 08:53:44 AM
Just like it says, all for 20 BTC shipped to your door.

Ram is 3x1GB DDR3 1600(if you want 3x2GB let me know)

I've only sold an Antec TPQ1200 power supply to David_Benz(whatever happened to him?) but you can reference that post to see he was very happy with the transaction, however

Escrow is fine by me, just as long as you set it up and it's free,lol.

4  Other / Off-topic / How many BTC did I leave on the table? on: July 01, 2012, 01:05:58 AM

I discovered BTC last summer just after the Gox debacle and was poised with what I found was a 15Gh/s cluster of computers I had previously been using to crunch numbers for the BOINC project Milkyway@home.
I have added quite a bit to my capacity over the last year but I wonder just how many BTC I would have to add to my stash if I would've been mining instead of crunching!
Now I, of course, did not start out with all those computers so I can't just figure it simply by time BUT
You can get certificates for your contributions in BOINC and here is mine for Milkyway:

Certificate of Computation

This certifies that

has participated in MilkyWay@Home since 11 June 2010, and has contributed 1,166,219,987 Cobblestones of computation (1.01 sextillion floating-point operations) to MilkyWay@Home.

Would any of you braniac mathematicians out there care to estimate for this old retired "cruncher" just how many BTC 1.01 sextillion floating point operations would translate to?

I realize there isn't really any direct mapping but I'm curious anyway.

Thanks in advance for anyone's efforts

7  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / 5870 with issues on: April 04, 2012, 09:21:31 PM

I am new here in the forum but have been around a long time mining and lurking as you call it (I'm just not really the social gregarious type)
I have an oddball 5870 here that was given to me because they replaced the fan and had a bit of a problem.(yeah, go ahead, you can think I did it,lol)
The fan shroud/heatsink housing is loose because it was rubbing but it works "as is" perfectly as I tossed it into this computer I am posting this from and its mining at 950/300 @ 61C = 425Mh/s and has worked flawlessly the past couple weeks.
It would be easy to fix it I suppose,
BUT, I don't do single GPU's generally so I'd like to sell it AS IS for any reasonable offer as a way of interacting with the community.

I would prefer BTC and I'm not greedy.

I will pay the shipping.
Oh, the trust issue, I am open to suggestions on however you would like to handle that.

I will monitor this until midnight tonight EST and will ship it first thing in the morning to the highest offer or not if no one is interested.
And I won't be offended at all if no one wants it.

8  Other / Off-topic / Crunching-> Hashing: BOINC -> Bitcoin on: March 01, 2012, 02:44:12 PM
I am(inactive atm) the #1 contributor to the BOINC project Milkyway@home which uses AMD cards to crunch numbers to help map tidal flows in our galaxy.(awesome project,IMO)
Last May I wanted to branch out a bit so I put two of my 5970's up for sale on ebay to buy some GTX 580's for a different project.
Well, I noticed they were selling on ebay for the same price or more than I had paid for them! So I listed them as a quadfire pair for $300 more than I had paid for them and .....15 mins later they were sold!
I thought , "Holy shit"! so I put two more up for sale and......gone again within 1/2 hr!!
I always do a follow up communication with anyone I sell something to just to make sure all went well and this buyer tells me, "They are already mining bitcoins, all is well"
I say to myself, bitcoins??? WTF is a bitcoin???
Well, it took me another week of reading and wrapping my head  around this and I say to myself, Holy shit, you(from 11 June 2010) have contributed 1.01 sextillion floating-point operations to Milkyway@home, how many bitcoins would you have now if you had been hashing instead of crunching?? (I probably don't really want to think about that,LOL)
So I was sitting on a large amount of hashing power, that was just my hobby=expense already justified.

Sorry Milkyway my kids are mining bitcoins now!

P.S. I have learned (and laughed) ALOT from reading here in this forum and would like to thank you all!
