1  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Custom Firmware AntMiner S7? on: May 10, 2018, 10:46:30 AM
I recall someone has built some updated custom firmware for the S7.

I just got 35 S7s and am looking at making them as efficient as possible, this means down clocks and other fun stuff, but I recall there was a custom firmware that did undervolting and gave very percise controls...

Anyone have and idea of where to get it? I googled around and only found some weird German threads about Momotorro.

Are there any other reliable companies at this time?
4  Economy / Computer hardware / R4 in Hand looking to sell. on: August 07, 2017, 01:00:13 AM
Let me know I have an R4 that Essentially I'd like to keep but I've been asked by the home owner to have it removed. Let me know if anyone has interest in the unit.
5  Bitcoin / Hardware / Bitmain tells me its fine. Yet they try to blame me for the last fire....R4 on: August 07, 2017, 12:30:30 AM
So i have an R4 its kept in a basement with a box fan on it, Basement is relatively low on humidity. Never the less that shouldn't matter much here. What does matter.

Chips are reporting 101 that's at 66f Ambient and running of a 1200watt 220v Server PSU. WITH A BOX FAN Blowing more air into the unit. Unit has been cleaned out by Bitmain recently.

What should I do?

6  Bitcoin / Hardware / Bitmain+Bitmain Warrenty Poor communication and service? on: June 29, 2017, 08:27:55 PM
Has anyone had problems with Bitmain, trying to get out of warranty work?

Very long story short. I bought a R4 back in December/Jan of 2016. Unit caught on Fire right after doing the ant-bleed patch on or around May 1.

Spoke to bitmain, for a week or more, They assured me the unit still had warranty on it until June 22-2017, and as long as I mailed it before then we'd be fine. . Fast forward a week Bitmain china stells me they have no r4 stock or items and I will need to work with Colorado. R4 is sent and received by June 9th. Today I get notification form Bitmain Colorado. that They were only able to salvage 1 of my boards, and it was going to be $600 to replace the other board. 

If the device is under warranty then isn't the burden of the cost of repairs on the mfg? why even have warranty then? as of right now I am 2 months without any hash from the device.

8  Bitcoin / Hardware / Gauging interest. Custom Made S4/S4+ water block on: May 06, 2015, 04:28:12 PM
Looking with a friend at getting a custom fabricated S4+ water block, more than likely going to get Alum, instead of copper due to corrosion issues that were seen with the C1 by bitmain.

Don't have prices yet, but Ill put the leg work in and work on getting everything together if people have interest.

Does anyone want to try to get a group together to sit in the public court room for that day? I believe as a Victim of BFL we have a right to be in the room. I was thinking about taking a week off just to sit in the court, and laugh about the things that happen in that court room.
12  Bitcoin / Mining support / Antminer C1 firmware is outdated on: January 09, 2015, 05:14:05 AM
just looking around at other Antminer firmwares, and it seems that over all its well OLD?

I was looking at the S3+ and its got a lot more functionality, eg; current C1 can't load balancing.

Is that a update thats out there that would add these things to the C1?

15  Economy / Economics / The Road to Confiscation: Connecticut Joins Illinois with Gold & Silver Reg laws on: May 20, 2013, 04:20:24 PM
Just 80 years after Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “great gold confiscation” of 1933, Illinois and now, Connecticut, have decided that it’s time to honor the great theft with their own gold and silver registration bills.

“I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States of America, do declare that [our] national emergency still continues…and do hereby prohibit the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States by individuals, partnerships, associations and corporations…” [Executive Order 6102]

S.B. 928 is Connecticut’s gold & silver registration legislation, introduced soon after Illinois’s S.B. 3341 for gold & silver registration, “The Precious Metal Purchase Act“, passed the Senate, & moves to the Illinois House.

Government cannot confiscate without a registry, and they wouldn’t be thinking of gold/silver confiscation, or  the first step, registration, unless there was credible and widespread worry about the public’s understanding, purchasing, & support of gold and silver.  As Zerohedge points out, if it were easier to keep using psychological games and fiat-debt models to oppose gold and silver, they would keep doing that, but when faced with dissent, it leads to force.

[Santelli discusses US gold confiscation in 1933, Illinois SB 3441 registration bill]

From the full text of Illinois SB 3341, gold and silver registration bill:

“Creates the Precious Metal Purchasing Act. Provides that a person who is in the business of purchasing precious metal shall obtain a proof of ownership, create a record of the sale, and verify the identity of the seller”

In addition, summarizing what the must-read text goes on to dictate:

    No cash transactions allowed in gold and silver sales, only traceable payment
    License, photograph, address, record of the sale for up to 5 years depending on amount required
    Copies of transactions must be sent, in addition to the licensing authority, to law enforcement or sheriff authorities, depending on population of location

And from the scarier & full text of Connecticut SB 928, gold and silver registration bill:

“No person may engage in or carry on the business of purchasing gold or gold-plated ware, silver or silver-plated ware, platinum ware, watches, jewelry, precious stones, bullion or coins unless such person is licensed as a precious metals or stones dealer by the licensing authority”

“Any person who willfully engages in the business of a precious metals or stones dealer unless licensed in accordance with this section or after notice that such person’s license has been suspended or revoked shall be guilty of a class D felony“

This is just the beginning of the legislation & not the scary part (the felony was assumed),  SB 928 goes on to require & explain:

    Full personal information of private individual’s bullion purchase & personal information, including photograph, address, photo identification
    Bullion can only be purchased with check or money order, no cash purchases and further criminalizes any cash in bullion transactions
    Explains numerous forms, license, regulatory forms private businesses must comply with, including delivering weekly sworn statements & full business transaction information to “licensing authority”
    States law enforcement may enter to inspect records, explains what the procedure of gold and silver confiscation is, but don’t worry, they give you a confiscation receipt! (section m)

Illinois is ahead of Connecticut in implementing the tyranny-blueprint (guns & gold!), having some of the strictest gun registration & gun-criminalization laws already on the books, and now a gold and silver registration bill that has passed the senate and will likely pass the house.

But Connecticut, which just passed reactionary gun criminalization legislation, has a scarier gold and silver registration bill in the works that more transparently expresses a tyrannical agenda.

The legislation literally says law enforcement and agents of the state are allowed and will enter to inspect at any time, and are only required to give you a record of a seizure incident. This is in addition to requiring business owners to prepare for law enforcement/agency inspections by keeping up with an impossible amount of license/law enforcement/record paperwork, or face thousands in fines & jail time.

What the planners behind these pieces of legislation must love is that it’s not technically, or more appropriately, if covered in the media, considered gold and silver confiscation if armed agents of the state aren’t going door to door. Instead, they plan on making it more and more impossible to buy precious metals without a government record, “just in case”, and adding burdensome paperwork & compliance standards to business owners until they can no longer keep up, fall behind, violate a section or two, and fall under the hammer of the state, ending their business, and/or imprisoning them.

But remember folks, before you form any opinions or try to stop this, the government really wants you to know is that it is watching out for your security and it’s not confiscation; you get a receipt.

Most thieves and criminals don’t even have the audacity to steal your property and give you a receipt for it. And at-least criminals do the leg-work for the crime themselves, know what they’re going to steal, and just steal your property. They do not point a gun to your head for years on end forcing you fill out paperwork, keep records, get meaningless licenses, pay fines and taxes on your production, all the while attempting to morally justify their control over you & use it to do the same to others.

Criminals steal; politicians bleed you dry and call it a cleanse.
16  Economy / Service Discussion / Dwolla no longer allowed to deal with Mt. Gox? (DHS Shut them down?) on: May 14, 2013, 11:56:42 PM
There is another email sent regarding this. It is not may not be a Dwolla-specific matter and may be much more important than people yet realize. The DHS is apparently seizing Mt. Gox's/Mutum Sigillum's accounts (presumably Dwolla accounts):

    As of 12:13 PM on 5/14/2013:

    Due to recent court orders by the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland seizing the account of Mutum Sigillum LLC (“Mt. Gox”), Dwolla will be unable to complete your recent bank transfer to Mutum Sigillum LLC and any future transactions.

    Instead, this transaction will be routed to your Dwolla account on its scheduled arrival date and time. These funds will then be accessible to you.

    Dwolla is not party to this matter nor does it have any information or further insight into the situation. We strongly encourages those with questions to contact Mutum Sigillum LLC

    We will continue to assist our users to the fullest extent that the law and company resources will allow.

    Note: Dwolla requires a court order before honoring requests such as seizing funds or revoking access to an account.

    On behalf of Dwolla, we apologize for this inconvenience.

Update 4:28 pm ET: I've received a response from Dwolla support that they cannot provide a copy of the order at this time:

    Thank you for your email. We were told this will be made pubic [sic] but do not have a time frame for when this would be happening.

Additionally, a bitcointalk poster received the following response, describing the order as a Seizure Warrant: (transcribed)

    As of 12:13 PM on 5/14/2013, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland issued a "Seizure Warrant" for the funds associated with Mutum Sigillum's Dwolla account (a.k.a. Mt. Gox). In light of the court order, procured by the Department of Homeland Security, Dwolla has seized account activities with Dwolla services for Mutum Sigillum.

This does not appear to be related to CoinLab, and appears to be a criminal matter being pursued by the DHS. It seems unlikely that is would be limited to Dwolla, but it's unclear to me what other assets Mutum Sigillum / Mt. Gox might have in the US.

Bafflingly, the mood on bitcointalk appears to be that this is all a hoax to try to manipulate pricing...
