1  Bitcoin / Armory / Armory 0.94.1 and 0.93.2 offline on: July 30, 2016, 08:36:07 AM

Version 0.94.1 and also version 0.93.2 on Ubuntu 16.04 installed from the .deb file.

I have "Armory is offline" and a button to select "Go Online!" in the middle of the window and "Connected (0 blocks)" in the bottom right corner but am unable to go online.

I have checked that bitcoind is running and I have set the correct bitcoind data directory setting in Armory (bitcoin data is on a different drive). If I close Armory, bitcoind continues to run and if I then restart Armory I get a message allowing me to kill it and let Armory restart it for me. In the tail of the log there is the following message (typically):

I have also tried disabling "Let Armory run Bitcoin-QT/bitcoind in the background" but this also stays offline, although Bitcoin-QT is running and up to date. Looking at the log file in this case it seems that Armory is still looking for the bitcoind data directory in /home/user/.bitcoin/ even though Bitcoin-QT has it's data stored on a different drive.

Can anyone suggest a solution? I can copy the whole log file if it helps...

2  Bitcoin / Armory / Moving watching-only wallet from Linux VM to OS X app on: May 06, 2014, 09:44:45 AM
I want to try the OS X beta which will involve switching from Armory running on a VM to the native OS X app. Is this as simple as importing the watching-only wallet into the OS X app? Will there be any issues if I switch back and forth between the VM and the native app, or is this a one way street?

4  Bitcoin / Armory / Password change on: November 29, 2013, 11:36:15 PM
Hi. I have realised that using a password for the offline wallet that I have previously used on my online computer for another purpose is not a good idea and now wish to change it. Are there any issues doing this on the offline computer running 0.88.1-beta? Will my paper backup still be fine? Nothing will change?
5  Bitcoin / Armory / Watching-only wallet addresses on: November 26, 2013, 06:28:55 AM
This is a real noob question but here goes...

How does the offline wallet know about new receiving addresses created on the online computer? The reason I ask is that I clicked the "Receive Bitcoins" button on the online computer and a new receiving address was created. My immediate thought was that the other computer is offline so how is it going to know about the new address and the coins it has received? Will the received coins show in the offline balance? How does this work?
6  Bitcoin / Armory / Different versions online/offline on: November 21, 2013, 07:17:37 AM
I don't recall reading this here but are there any issues running the testing version on the online computer while the offline computer has the stable version on it? The reason I ask is that I'm running OS X Mavericks on my online (primary, new) computer and Mountain Lion on the offline computer, which is older hardware (Core Duo Mac Mini). Do they play nicely together?

Just saw this on Reddit ( but I can't see how it can work  Huh

Surely any withdrawals of the (high) interest must ultimately be paid from other depositor's bitcoins because the 4% deposit fee is going to be eaten up within 4 days. Ponzi?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Running multiple clients on: September 24, 2013, 08:46:39 AM
Are there any potential (or known!) issues with running more than one client at one time? I'm running my Bitcoin client full-time at the moment but I also intermittently run clients for Feathercoin, Namecoin, and others from time to time. I was about to fire up my Feathercoin client but suddenly wondered if I should shut down Bitcoin-Qt first? I'm running OS X Mountain Lion
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / 0.8.5 block database error on: September 13, 2013, 11:27:30 AM
I have just downloaded Bitcoin-Qt version 0.8.5 for OSX running on Mountain Lion, having replaced version 0.8.4 which I downloaded just a few days ago, and am seeing the following error when I attempt to run it: "Error opening block database. Do you want to rebuild the block database now?". I did not see this error when I ran 0.8.4.

Should I click "Ok" and allow the rebuild of the block database to proceed? Or would it be wise to stick to 0.8.4 for the time being?
10  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Encryption on: September 05, 2013, 10:04:56 PM
Not sure this is the right thread for this but here goes anyway....

I saw this article on Zerohedge ( The phrase that stood out for me was "What happened next is unclear, but it is safe to say the NSA can now hack virtually everything but the highest (512+ bit: assume AES-256 is now terminally violated) cipher with impunity."

I sense a degree of fear-mongering to the article but was wondering how accurate it is and if it has any bearing on the security of the Bitcoin network?
11  Bitcoin / Hardware / ASICminer user ranking on BTC Guild on: March 01, 2013, 08:47:50 PM
I just checked out the User Ranking on BTC Guild and I see user ID 67117 is hitting 5TH/s! That's over 1 billion shares and 290 blocks found in just a couple of weeks. Pretty incredible. It's going to be an interesting year in mining for sure  Smiley

Another reason that accepting bitcoins could benefit both the reseller and their customers:
13  Economy / Speculation / Mt Gox order book (asks) on: January 17, 2013, 06:11:20 PM
I just checked on Bitcoin Charts Mt Gox order book and see there is a total of only 55367 btc on the ask side. Have the asks ever been this thin before?
14  Economy / Speculation / How can this happen? on: December 28, 2012, 12:50:18 AM
Asks have been filled up to 13.55, in the process skipping asks for about 4000 coins. A new high of 13.55 is registered. Weird or what?  Huh

15  Economy / Speculation / December 21st on: December 18, 2012, 03:46:57 AM
Since the world is ending on Friday what do we think will happen to the price?

I'm thinking there is likely to be a massive selloff Thursday as most people will want to party the last hours of this planet. But there's sure to be a few people who will want to buy all the coins they can and put them into a brain wallet to take with them into the afterlife.

And something that just came to mind. How is the end of the world handled with respect to time zones?? Will we see the world disappear in a progressive wedge shape starting at the date line? Hmmmm
16  Economy / Speculation / SMA50/100 on: November 17, 2012, 12:14:35 AM
I'm new to this so I'm not sure this is a good indicator but I've noticed the price is now above the SMA50 and SMA100 lines. Is this long term bullish? Is it important at all?

17  Economy / Speculation / Someone's got some coins to move... on: September 21, 2012, 09:19:09 PM
Each one of these transactions is 44000 bitcoins. Went for more than 20 minutes. Any speculation on this?  Smiley

18  Other / Beginners & Help / Pirate's parting words on: August 29, 2012, 10:39:16 AM
Has anyone noticed Pirate's final words in the IRC log? "Thanks guys, have a good night."  Thanks?? I'd have expected him to say "Sorry guys" at least, and their chances of having a good night after that bombshell were non-existent surely
