1  Bitcoin / Legal / Any Canadian lawyers willing to represent on contingency? on: November 16, 2018, 07:45:32 AM
Obviously its a tough sell getting a firm to subscribe to any non injury based claim on contingency, but my circumstances are extraordinary.

The slimeball ex-lawyers that started a data center, relocated me from across the country to make heads or tails of a rats nest of a facility they had thrown together..

I did such a great job, my efforts were recognized in the form of monetary rewards, company options and new titles.

Ultimately I was the Chief Information Officer of the company before Siicone Valley investors got duped into parting with millions and I quickly became a target to eliminate.

Not ever being manager in the past, let alone executive, it wasent long before they played games and fabricated cause on flimsy allegations to dismiss me which they did without severence or leu of notice.

All my hard work turning a leaky, unmanageable safety disaster into a working facility was quickly thrown out the window.

I'm now stuck in the Canadian sub arctic and cant afford legal representation cause my ample salary was soaked up in making a home of the new province I was shuttled off to, a livelyhood I was abruptly severed from less than a year later despite two promotions and the companies insistance that I change my living address to one over 2000kms and two provinces away.

Since the Atlantic provinces are such a boys club, even if I could afford an hourly rate barrister I have been turned away due to conflicts of interest.

Contractually I have $250k due if dismissed without legal cause and $15k that was blatantly left unpaid in a simple breach of contract.

And a quarter percent of the company in options with another half percent alloted annually (due december).

This is before any punative damages a judge would leap to tack on to a ruling for the hainous behaviour that took place afterwards.

I've got all kinds of evidence from audio recordings of botched "investigation interviews" from people who have no business acting as HR staff, and an exported email inbox and suspicious company financials.

Looking forward to pm's.. figure at the very least it will cost the company a fine sum of bitcoin to pay off whoever chimes in and is interested in filing against this group.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / A difinitive test of 4 major ZEC pools for profits and uptime on: January 13, 2017, 04:58:15 AM
I realize I may have come across as a bit of an F2pool fanboy in the past (love the PPS consistency) but I'm not one to limit my options, and alternative ZEC mining experience for me was admittedly only with Suprnova which I found terrible.

Since I had a unix box with four identical 7950's on hand (all Sapphire Dual-X HD7950, same undervolted bios, same modest clocks totalling 195h/s on claymore 10 in nofee mode) I decided to have a go at some statistical analysis.
Included in the study were F2Pool (of course), SuprNova, Dwarfpool and Flypool.. Unfortunately I wanted to keep all stats from the same rig or else would have been a target of mine also. Maybe down the road.

Of note during my sample over 4 days this week, day 2 posed a bit of a glitch or DDoS attack on Dwarfpool's stats front end but all shares were counted and awarded.

After day 2 I switched to ssl encryption for Flypool and Suprnova since they offered it. Since I was in nofee mode this posed little to no difference in coin output.


The basic result (as an F2Pool fanboy) was fairly surprising:

SuprNova daily average output over 4 day sample: 0.01725
F2Pool daily average output over 4 day sample:     0.018209995
Dwarfpool daily average output over 4 day sample: 0.0179318525
FlyPool daily average output over 4 day sample:    0.01968

This was for an consistent average hashrate of 195H/s

Dwarfpool roared ahead early on, took me completely off kilter but had long spells with no blocks found on day 3 and then at the end of day 4 which substantially lowered its average and allowed FlyPool to take the crown overall.

Daily output was as follows with top performers of the day in bold:

        Day1                Day2                Day3               Day4           

Supr    0.0167             0.0184            0.0169             0.017     
Fly      0.01944           0.02004           0.0202             0.01904
F2       0.01913016      0.0170826       0.01834198      0.01828524
Dwarf   0.02102721      0.02075111      0.01224441      0.01770468

Suprnova, as I have commented in previous posts.. continued to substantially under perform. This time during the whole 4 day sample period coming out on bottom by a fair margin. Shortly after switching to Suprnova's encrypted ssl server there was a 15 minute span where I was not connecting to the server for some reason, slightly lower (than the usual low) output can be noted at 68h sample period. Otherwise up time was 100% for this pool and all others.

F2pool wasen't ultimately as superior as I had thought. It was consistent however. Dwarf was a serious contender, not sure if it was plain bad luck that the DDoS and 5-6 hour periods without a block happened during this 4 day span but I did email the admin with some questions and received a prompt and reasonably helpful reply. I would certainly be willing to give Dwarfpool another try in the future.

If I were to do this over again from the start I would have used Suprnova's anonymous service instead of creating an account and logging in to check stats periodically. At this point I think I have lost enough profits with them though, and will no longer point any of my miners at those servers.

Below are samples from about every 4-9 hour ranges. The hour periods aren't quite accurate but what is 100% accurate (and most important) is that the samples were taken from all four pools at the exact (within a few minutes) same time.

I captured screen shots during each sample period as available for viewing/confirmation here:!LJhCnbzC!OXdEiM08UK8_7FFeBQHwmw.

I hope this is helpful for some of the ZEC miners out there. I welcome any comments/criticism as I tried to be as non partial and scientific about this as possible.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Info on the ZCash (Daily?) ramping scheme for block rewards on: November 02, 2016, 02:42:49 PM
So there is a slow start, from 2 ZEC to 12.5 at block 20,000.

At block 10,000 the reward should be like 6 ZEC but we're at block like 3000 now and reward is showing 2 ZEC still right?

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Whats up with ZEC mining calculators on: November 02, 2016, 01:49:20 PM
I asked this in one of the miner threads but dont see much hope for an answer, likely it will just get buried by posts made with new accounts.

can anyone shed some light on calculating proper rewards?

these calculators don't seem accurate.

current network hashrate is just under 5MH/s (or 500,000H/s).. a 500 H/s contribution nets .5% of all blocks mined after variance.

block reward still being 2 ZEC every 2.5 minutes average, 20% scam fee to filthy rich bitcoin pumpers so lets round down to 1.6 ZEC reward until it ramps up to next increment before settling on 12.5 ZEC total.

0.5% chance of solving each block means estimated time to block is 200 blocks or 500 minutes?

getting 1.6 ZEC every 500 minutes means a full reward of 1.6 ZEC every 8.3 hours.. minus pool fee.

that's 0.2 ZEC an hour, what am i missing?
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / almost an hour into an attack on the ETH network? on: September 18, 2016, 06:55:29 PM
seems like mining rigs are down across the network and difficulty is dropping pretty drastically.

my geth daemons have all crashed out citing "out of memory" fatal errors.

anyone have any insight on this crisis?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / risers and gpu temp/clock settings [solved] on: July 08, 2016, 09:39:53 PM
just ran into a motherboard that is not allowing any card not directly plugged into the pcie slot to show temp or adjust clocks.

ERROR - Get temperature failed for Adapter 1 - AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series
ERROR - Get clocks failed for Adapter 1 - AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series

is the error code, i know this has come up before but i could not find the posts.

is there a bios setting or remedy i could employ to bypass this issue?
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / GPU repair, worn leads? on: June 15, 2016, 01:21:18 AM
So i have this GPU i purchased used.

its been a warrior for me mining eth, super cool running 7970 at expected hashrate but i have noticed its pretty discolored on the backplane plate, like its been baked in the over at one time or another.. and the leads on the motherboard connections are quite gouged from repetitive insert/removal.

do you guys know of any silver paste or something i can retrace these leads with to regain some meat on the leads?

its just stopped working today after maintenance/shuffling cards around and i'm sure its just a matter of poor connection according to the behavior i have been noting lately.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / manual fanspeed adjustments in linux on: June 05, 2016, 03:41:57 PM
so i just picked up a card that is bios locked.. unfortunately i cant seem to get the fan speed adjusted through aticonfig.

i have found that aticonfig --pplib-cmd "fanspeed 0 100" should do the trick after enabling od but i get error returned PPLIB command execution has failed! on the set command.

anyone have any ideas on this?
9  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTT] Antminer S7 BB Board for EVGA 6pin power supply cables on: May 04, 2016, 02:20:53 PM
i'm willing to trade my spare antminer s7 bb that works with s5, s5+ and s7 dual or single fan versions for a set of modular power supply cables compatible with the EVGA G2 power supply.

need 7 PCIE 6pin connectors, whether it's 4 cables with two ends or 7 individual makes no difference to me.

10  Bitcoin / Mining / how about that diff change on: April 28, 2016, 01:06:47 PM
178,678,300,672.00 to 178,672,041,535.12 for a grand total change of about  625,914.. or 0.00004%.

Difficulty rolled over a million in late 2011. i don't think we have seen changes this minute in scale ever. likely some mining operations in temperate climates that have scaled back for the encroaching mild weather? coupled with new miners reaching the network for the first time of course.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Core, how many connections is too few? can you have too many? on: March 01, 2016, 11:05:39 PM
I figured 10 was enough on a limited bandwidth connection.. i believe the first 8 are reserved for outbound, leaving 2 for inbound.

what do you all figure?

12  Other / Off-topic / SSD worth the upgrade? on: January 20, 2016, 04:37:55 AM
So i'm still working with the spinning rust at home when it comes to storage.. i've started experimenting with zfs which has been pretty impressive performance wise but i heard SSD is really where it's at for running nodes.

Sometimes i fall out of sync, wondering if this may have to do with HDD performance, does anyone have any results they can relay that would convince me to take the plunge?

I'm an "aint broke don't fix" kinda guy but could use some more storage lest i clean house in some long forgotten corners of my partition table.
