1  Economy / Services / Seeking Immediate VPN Service and .ch/.is/.kp domain reg + VPS. on: May 25, 2013, 01:17:27 AM
On behalf of an acquaintance I am seeking a VPN service which accepts BTC, accepts registration via TOR, does not require an email address for registration and rotates IPs often, you other VPN providers know who I am talking about. Basically a VPN service with a little bit of anonymous honor.

I have been around BitcoinTalk for a little while and would vouch for this acquaintance and assert there will be no activity conducted which is illegal in any country that I am aware of. Simply for the purpose of HTTP based research and data collection which may be uncomfortable to some entities.

Let me know the following if interested in providing VPN services:

1) technical specs (you know what I mean)
2) monthly/quarterly/annual costs in BTC
3) server locations and class size per location
4) length of time in operation


2  Bitcoin / Legal / Bitcoinica Suit on: September 09, 2012, 08:55:35 PM
Referencing the post here:

and complaint here:

After a cursory reading of the complaint I am getting the feeling that the Plaintiff's will fail to secure relief/judgement in their favor.

Has anyone reviewed the complaint? Thoughts?
3  Economy / Services / [WTB] Vectorization of existing logo + site frontend work on: September 07, 2012, 11:17:33 PM
I have been commissioned to rework a site for a non-profit and have donated some of my time to do so. You will not be asked to donate your time.

I am looking for someone to work with to do some vectors of existing logo and similar elements. I have a budget to work with although small. I am also looking for someone (preferably the same individual) to work with on some of the frontend work for the site. Again I have a budget but not significant (think hundreds of USD, not thousands, or 10s of BTC not hundreds). You will be paid in BTC only.

We must be able to work together as I have all the backend code done (or 95% of it done anyway) and you must have strong CSS and Bootstrap related skills. If you are interested in a new project and have the skills necessary to implement CSS heavy sites, please contact me to discuss.

I will not waste your time if I can't afford you, please don't waste mine either.

Contact me and show any examples/portfolio you might be proud of. If you don't have an example/portfolio to show (as I don't either because I am strictly backend), no problem, I will ask you to show me some examples of frontend/vector work you _could_ do....but I would fully expect that you _could_ do what you show me. Smiley

Thanks for your time!
4  Economy / Currency exchange / [WTS] BTC for Vanilla Visa on: August 10, 2012, 12:40:56 AM
To be clear, I have BTC, I want Vanilla Visa (more than one occasion). Sometimes I will only need the VV data (virtual card), sometimes I will need it mailed to me (physical). I am willing to pay a fee for mailing.

I typically would need a transaction to be completed within 4 - 6 hours of request. I am only interested in dealing with trusted and long time members (long time = > 6 months + successful TXs, + on Honest Traders thread).

I need ~$100 VV card right now. I can send BTC within minutes of an agreement on terms/fees.

Anyone interested?
5  Economy / Computer hardware / Does anyone buy 5770's, 58xx's or Silver PSU's anymore? on: August 02, 2012, 01:19:31 AM
I have a pile of GPUs and PSUs left over from our mining days. I have 6 or 7 5770s, 6 5850s and a couple 5830s. I also have 2 or more Seasonic Silver 850W units and some other 80+ PSUs...and some rig gear (MB, CPU, RAM, 1x/16x Extenders).

Anyone interested? If so I can shoot some photos your way upon request.

IIRC we were getting 220+ Mhash/s on these 5770s while core/mem voltage/clock tuned down to where we were under 100W each. Smiley We were Glakkeclock fans/contributors.

The fun days hacking on ADL/Hardware...

Holler if interested, make an offer. Check my rep...


6  Economy / Lending / [LOAN NEEDED] [CLOSED] 180 BTC on: January 27, 2012, 03:54:00 AM

This thread is a formal allegation of fraud and scam activity against etsanchez and turquoise9955 and provides an opportunity for either member to dispute the allegation and provide evidence supporting such dispute.

etsanchez lists Dell/Samsung laptops for sale at:

GuruSteve reports purchase of iPad 2 from etsanchez on Sep 08 at:
rizzn reports purchase of iPad 2? from etsanchez on Sep 14 at:

Please post any evidence you have (PMs, emails) into this thread at your earliest convenience. Please sanitize your post here to not disclose any of your own personally identifiable information if you so choose. Please include the BTC address etsanchez requested payment to be sent to.

The allegation is that none of the above members received product.

etsanchez allegedly replies to GuruSteve via PM indicating that it was indeed a scam at:

Please post PM content reflecting the above statement so I can remove "allegedly". It has been corroborated to my knowledge but it would help to have that PM posted here.

It was confirmed via Administrators that etsanchez and turquoise9955 are the same individual. I have not located direct evidence of fraudulent activity by turquoise9955 as of yet.

In future transactions please be cautious folks. Don't depend on this forum or Staff/Administrators to protect you from scammers. Do some substantial due diligence and if it sounds just too good to be true, just pass on it.

Edit: Please do not post in this thread unless you are a party to the transactions referenced above or have specific evidence regarding the transactions or the accused member(s).
@Staff: Please remove any posts not conforming to the listed post restrictions.

10  Economy / Services / [WTB] Windows Server 2008 VPS Instance on: July 19, 2011, 03:46:29 AM
IBB (Islamic Bank of Bitcoin) is looking for offers to provide a Windows 2008 (Web) VPS with access to a MSSQL 2008 DB. The VPS should have at least 1GB/20GB/200GB. Cpanel/Plesk/Other should be included and RDP access of course. IIS 7.5, ASP.NET and Ajax pre-setup and configured would be needed.

PM me with offers (to be settled in BTC) and include VPS specs and connectivity/peering information.

12  Economy / Marketplace / [SCAMMER WARNING] (Veritus101/FBI) - Selling mining gear on: May 10, 2011, 07:56:14 PM
(Kiba, feel free to move if not in correct category)

I accept full responsibilty for this loss. I should have not been as trusting and done some more due diligence before entering into a transaction with a new forum member. After repeated requests to seller to ship mining gear purchased or a refund of BTC I am afraid I must warn others to not enter into a transaction with the forum members Veritus101 (James) or FBI (Joe).

The mining gear in question was a Seasonic 850W PSU and ASRock Motherboard/Sempron/RAM combo for a total of 57.50 BTC. Transaction was completed over 05/08 and 05/09 and BTC payments made via the three transactions View #1, View #2, View #3.

I found a post by FBI which appeared oddly similar in style to the Veritus101 post I had visited and purchased from. After a bit of research I realized that the posts are from the same individual. I made contact with FBI (Joe) to inquire about purchasing the listed 5970 cards and collected additional data to support my suspicion. A sample of data is listed below.

It is unfortunate that these things happen, but somewhat expected I suppose. I hope that no other members have been taken advantage of by this individual (or other individuals) and I caution members to do reasonable due diligence with new members. I unfortunately failed in this case.

13  Bitcoin / Mining / Interesting PCIe x16 Issue on: April 25, 2011, 04:56:08 AM
Has anyone run into PCIe x16 link issues when using it as x1?

I have several of these ASUS M4A79XTD boards and just begun populating them with more than 2 ATI cards each and have run into an interesting issue.

I can successfully run 3 5770's in these boards, 1 in each of the actual x16 slots (onboard) and 1 via an x1 slot/extender (offboard). No problems here.

When I lift the same 5770s offboard and connect 2 of them to the same x16 slots via x1 extenders I lose the second x16 slot entirely. The first x16 slot closest to CPU functions just fine using an x1 extender however the second slot is dead. Nothing in lspci for that slot/card. As expected, dropping 1 5770 back into the second x16 slot and connecting another 5770 via an x1 extender to the first x16 slot works just fine.

I noted in the specs on these Asus boards that 2 GPUs in the x16 slots drop them both to x8 but I doubt that is related unless it is forced x8 link. I have tried several (4) different x1 extenders, all exhibit the same behavior.

I have some x16 extenders on the way which I suspect will resolve the issue but I am curious if anyone else has run into anything similar. Am I missing something obvious?
14  Bitcoin / Mining / Dedicated mining rig Mhash/s to $ query on: April 10, 2011, 01:34:19 AM
Electricity and recurring costs aside, would anyone care to share what their Mhash/s per $1 USD dedicated rig investment is? I am curious to learn how diverse (or not) the investments are. I am referring to all hardware aggregate investment into a dedicated rig (or rigs).

Our first couple rigs are at 1.23 Mhash/s per $1 which is a little lower than our goal.
