1  Bitcoin / Armory / Checking on an Old Offline Armory Wallet on: May 24, 2017, 04:29:43 AM
I've got an old cold storage wallet that I used for a while a few years back. It still has some funds in it that I'd like to check up on for peace of mind.
The wallet was created with Armory 0.90 (maybe a bit earlier, but close to that). My paper backup shows a Wallet Version of 1.35

I have the watching only wallet file, but haven't had a copy of Armory running in a long time.

2 Questions:

- Is there any easy button to import the Watching Only wallet to check on the funds?
- What wallet would you guys recommend (that I can import the offline wallet file) when I'm ready to get the coins out of cold storage?

5  Economy / Computer hardware / --SOLD-- MY AVALONS ! ! ! ! on: July 11, 2013, 07:18:44 PM
These have both been spoken for and 1 has been paid for.
The other should be paid for shortly.

These 2 Avalons are the only thing stopping me from moving out of my current office/colo space.
I shut down all the GPUs and these gotta go so I can stop paying rent on the space.
I have substantially reduced my price to get these moving.

Hello all,
These Avalons have been mining all day every day since early April.
They both run at about 82 G/h. These units are incredibly reliable, their uptime can be counted in months.
Each unit has stalled only one time that needed a manual reboot.
Any other times (about every 18-48 hrs) they auto restart CGMiner and keep on mining.
The most recent manual reboot one was after overclocking to 350.
Also since the overclocking, they are about 3° warmer than they used to be.
They now run between 47° and 51° - Totally within the acceptable range.
But I have to tell you that I have 2 tons of AC pumping onto them and a few GPU rigs in a 120 square foot room.

The price is 95 BTC each + Shipping from Florida to your location.

17  Bitcoin / Armory / Armory (Offline) and Ninja Boot? on: February 11, 2013, 04:18:07 PM
I was browsing the Wiki ( on the various places where one can spend their Bitcoin and stumbled upon a bootable USB stick called Ninja Boot ( This $20 gadget comes pre-loaded to boot your computer into a TAILS OS and only use the Tor network. I'm thinking that this might work for an offline computer similar to a Live CD, provided that you don't give it access to the internet by unplugging your Ethernet and/or disabling your WiFi?

Obviously, one would need to install Armory each time, but if it could work, it may be an alternative for those that do not have the old laptop lying around or the $200-300 to get the offline computer required for cold storage.

I would guess this all hinges around weather or not the offline Armory bundle will install on this OS.


Did I mention that it looks cool too?
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Looking for simple wallet/client restore instructions for all types of wallets. on: January 10, 2013, 09:27:57 PM
I'm new to Bitcoin and I'm trying to get started with the best possible habits. I've been reading up on all the noob stuff that I can find. I have compiled a list of some of the "best practices"
All of the threads that I have read about wallets say that you need to back them up on a regular basis. Some of them are also very specific about how to do this, but not how to recover.

I am having a lot of trouble locating simple instructions on how to restore a wallet from a backup (for noobs).
I know that each client/wallet will have it's own set of instructions, but I'm not deeply invested in any particular wallet yet.
I'm hoping that you, the Bitcoin community can reach out and help me locate the recovery instructions for restoring from any and all types of backups.

So I've spent a few bucks on some coins so that I can practice moving my coins and backing them up and restoring wallets from a backup.
Once I am comfortable that I can create a backup and actually restore it, I will then buy myself a larger amount of Bitcoins.

It would also be appreciated to hear about the wallet of your preference based on the above.
