1  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / 49 port USB hubs anyone having problems? on: December 28, 2013, 07:14:30 PM
I got one of those A*******r 49 port USB hubs a few weeks ago from one of their franchisees ( or however they figure out who can sell them) and it ran good, 2 dead ports to start. Now I have 17 bad ports. anyone else having trouble with them?
The bad ports power up BE's OK, but cannot mine or load drivers. I am using windows 7 64 bit, which may have something to do with it. But they seam pretty flimsy for the price that I paid.
2  Bitcoin / Mining support / BFGMiner 3.3.0 Win 7, can't get vid cards, Icarus too slow on: October 26, 2013, 06:08:54 AM
Hope I am in the right forum.

I just upgraded to BFGMiner 3.3.0 - notes say GPU disabled by default. I cannot mine with my vid cards, using Win 7 64. I have -S openCL:auto in my startup.

real question I have is this, My Erupter's all come up fine and mine, but I get message shortly after startup:
 [2013-10-26 01:53:24] ICA 0: Seems too slow to be an Icarus; calibrating with short timing

they get up to correct speeds, I was just wondering what that short timing notice is about?
3  Economy / Service Discussion / Mt Gox trades split into multiple transactions? on: October 25, 2013, 02:32:43 PM
Hope this is the correct forum to post.  Still new-ish to all this, so excuse me if this has been discussed already.

I have had a Mt Gox account for almost a year, but have not been very active with it. Recently, I notice my trades at Gox have been split up into many smaller transactions. Used to be, I made a trade and it showed up as 1 trade and 1 fee (if applicable) transaction? Anyone notice this or know why? I already opened a support question with Gox, but do not expect to get a response that I can understand.

For example, I just bought a few BTC, and ended up with 6 small tx's that equal my total trade amount. Are they trying to obscure the info or protect their back end somehow? Its very frustrating trying to track what I have done with all these tiny transactions. If I buy 3 BTC I get 4-6 smaller Tx's with fees. Its annoying.

second question: with the price discrepancy on Gox to any other trading platform, is anyone successfully buying BTC on another system (Bitstamp, BTC-E, ect) and then selling on Gox? I understand there are possibly significant delays in deposits/withdrawals of fiat currencies, but Gox is always 10+ USD higher than anyone else. This theory looks good on paper, but anyone actually working it in real life?

thanks for any relevant responses

4  Bitcoin / Mining support / Solo question - will blocks be accepted? basic BTC question. on: October 19, 2013, 04:33:59 PM
OK, please do not reply with 1,000 "why are you mining solo, join a pool" posts.

I am in a few pools.  I also have a small set up mining solo, just in case I get lucky.

So, on the off chance that I do find a block, will it be accepted? Are all the miners out there that run the big pools only accepting blocks that are generated from a few large operations?
 - my hash power is miniscule, so if I find a block would it be rejected because someone else with HUGE hash power has already solved it, and I can never catch up to the currently solved blockchain?

Would a block that was accepted by my solo set up start another hard fork foul up?

any insight at all on how this whole thing works would be helpful.

thanks in advance-
M1n3r49er
5  Other / Beginners & Help / I found a block! Encouragement for us little guys.... on: March 10, 2013, 09:52:41 PM
OK, I started mining in December 2012. I put together 6 radeon cards I had lying around, and have been chipping away my little measly .1x BTC per day. I was happy. But, I thought to myself: "With all those mega massive farmers out there, cranking 200 to (now) 4,500 TERA hash per second, whats my little rock hammer going to contribute compared to these other wrecking ball outfits? Am I just syphoning my shares off their profits and pissing all the big boys off? Is this a waste of time?"

Well, I have to say I was very pleased the other day when I logged on to my pool and looked at the rankings page. There I was, my little user ID, way at the bottom of the list. And... wait. Whats this? Could it be? YES! There it was: on the blocks found register -  a "1" next to my user ID!
I found a block! Me! My little bitty , teany weany little rock hammer chipped off a bright,shiny gem!

So I was kind of lucky, but it is pretty cool to see that I at least got 1 for the pool so far.
So, to all you casual miners and newbies out there: Keep chipping away with your little rock hammers...

8  Other / Beginners & Help / Help solo mining- anyone? on: November 24, 2012, 01:32:52 PM
OK I am pool mining and thats fine, but trying an excersize for the student here on solo mining:

I have a Win7 PC with bitcoin-Qt and guiminer. I launch guiminer and choose start client as server. I select new miner , chhose solo from dropdown and put in the UN/PW from bitcoin.conf,and....nothing. console shows wrongUN/PW then bunch of IO errors and something about no backup server found.

do I need something else in my bitcoin.conf file ?

All that contains is
rpcuser=
rpcpassword=
rpcallowip=*

do i need any extra lines in my .conf file or something?
9  Other / Beginners & Help / noob needs help bitcoin-qt will never synch? on: November 23, 2012, 07:45:51 PM
sorry for this post, but I cannot find related topics aywhere:

So, I decided to try bitcoin mining. I have had an old old rig that has a PCI-e slot given to me :
acer veriton pro.
S370 Pentium D 945 dual core 3.4Gh
2 GB pc 333 DDR2 RAM (dual channel)
WD 160 GB SATA 1 HDD

Radeon 5770 GPU

Installed Win 7 64-Bit. Installed bitcoin-qt win 32 V0.7.1-beta(with Qt v 4.8.2 included). Installed Guiminer 2012-11-18.

I have had it running for 3 days now, and am almost close to sync 98.51% on 2061XX block ou tof 2092XX blocks.

and I am looking at the current block count on block explorer here: http://blockexplorer.com/q/getblockcount.

Here is my big question:
it appears that the current block count is incrementing faster than my solo bitcoin-Qt server instance can process the chain. Will this computer ever get into sync so I can start up my solo miner in GUIMiner?


thanks to any one who can help me out;
N00b_miner49er
