2  Economy / Services / [Bounty] 0.015 BTC for whoever can help with Python[Closed] on: November 12, 2013, 03:10:13 AM
I need to retrieve the last price from https://api.bitcoinaverage.com/no-mtgox/ticker/USD in a python script, then have it change the contents of a text file to the price. Couldn't do it myself.
Bonus 0.005 if it runs every 30 seconds to keep it updated. (It can stay running). (I would really prefer that it updates every 30 seconds)

EDIT: I will escrow if needed.

EDIT: Python 3.3.2

Someone in the JD chatroom claimed it. Thanks!

4  Economy / Gambling / BitcoinManiac Provably Fair Verification | Open Source on: October 26, 2013, 03:49:02 AM
Hello, I run BitcoinManiac.com and more importantly here BitcoinManiac Verifier

I will be accepting submissions for sites that are not already listed on this part of the site, provided that they are completely provably fair and have adequate documentation of how their provably fair system works. This project is intended to help gamblers or anyone else wishing to do a provably fair service of any kind verify results, as on-site verifiers shouldn't be trusted.

BitcoinManiac's Verifier runs 100% javascript, so all the verification is transparent and open-source. I ask that if you plan on using the code somewhere else that you give credit back to my site as it is a large part of my website.

If you would like to submit something, please post a link to the site or thread, and also a link to where the provable fairness is documented. Casino operators should feel free to post in this thread.

My aim here is to help people, so if you have a problem with any of my site, please post it here. Constructive critisism is welcomed, accusations are not.

Note that I am far from what you could call an expert developer, but I stand by the fairness of my site as a reflection of my trust in the community. I would never intentionally host misleading code that could harm other people in thinking that they had fair rolls.

Thank you, and have a nice day.

Hello, I am the admin of http://bitcoinmaniac.com . I am trying to compile a better list of inputs.io faucets than what I have now. If you own a faucet, or know a faucet that is not on my website or has been submitted yet, please post here. I am working right now to create a better faucet rotator with timers among other things. Thanks!
7  Bitcoin / Project Development / Help a beginner create an inputs.io faucet from scratch on: September 30, 2013, 02:56:04 AM
Hello guys, I want to expand my learning, so i'm asking for your help. I want to create a bitcoin faucet to add to http://bitcoinmaniac.com , but I don't want to go the easy route and use the precreated myfaucet script. I want to create quality code and be proud of it. I'm a beginner with PHP and i've never even touched mysql, and I don't know where to start. I'd like to see a few things in my faucet:
Loads things from a config file that can be easily edited to change most aspects of the faucet. (API key, payout, etc)
Doesn't allow payouts to the same address or IP for a time set in the config file
Pretty basic things. Please help me, I don't want you to do the work for me, I want you to direct me where I can learn the neccessary skills to build such a thing. I appreciate any help or constructive feedback you might have.
8  Other / Off-topic / Steam just announced a Linux based OS on: September 23, 2013, 07:47:00 PM
http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/

SteamOS
Thousands of games, millions of users. Everything you love about Steam. Available soon as a free operating system designed for the TV and the living room.
Steam is coming to a new operating system
As weíve been working on bringing Steam to the living room, weíve come to the conclusion that the environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself. SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen. It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines.
Living room & Steam
Finally, you donít have to give up your favorite games, your online friends, and all the Steam features you love just to play on the big screen. SteamOS, running on any living room machine, will provide access to the best games and user-generated content available.
Fast forward
In SteamOS, we have achieved significant performance increases in graphics processing, and weíre now targeting audio performance and reductions in input latency at the operating system level. Game developers are already taking advantage of these gains as they target SteamOS for their new releases.
Cooperating system
Steam is not a one-way content broadcast channel, itís a collaborative many-to-many entertainment platform, in which each participant is a multiplier of the experience for everyone else. With SteamOS, ďopennessĒ means that the hardware industry can iterate in the living room at a much faster pace than theyíve been able to. Content creators can connect directly to their customers. Users can alter or replace any part of the software or hardware they want. Gamers are empowered to join in the creation of the games they love. SteamOS will continue to evolve, but will remain an environment designed to foster these kinds of innovation.
Four new Steam features focused on the living room.
Available soon in both SteamOS and the Steam client.
In-home Streaming
You can play all your Windows and Mac games on your SteamOS machine, too. Just turn on your existing computer and run Steam as you always have - then your SteamOS machine can stream those games over your home network straight to your TV!
Music, TV, Movies
Weíre working with many of the media services you know and love. Soon we will begin bringing them online, allowing you to access your favorite music and video with Steam and SteamOS.
Family Sharing
In the past, sharing Steam games with your family members was hard. Now you can share the games you love with the people you love. Family Sharing allows you to take turns playing one anotherís games while earning your own Steam achievements and saving your individual game progress to the Steam cloud.
Family Options
The living-room is family territory. Thatís great, but you donít want to see your parentsí games in your library. Soon, families will have more control over what titles get seen by whom, and more features to allow everyone in the house to get the most out of their Steam libraries.
At the core of SteamOS is everything you already love about Steam.
All the games you love
Hundreds of great games are already running natively on SteamOS. Watch for announcements in the coming weeks about all the AAA titles coming natively to SteamOS in 2014. Access the full Steam catalog of over nearly 3000 games and desktop software titles via in-home streaming.
Over 50 million friends
Steam users are what makes gaming on Steam fun. Meet new people, join game groups, form clans, chat in-game and dive into Game Hubs, the center of activity for all your favorite games.
Workshop
The creative energy of Steam users takes shape in the Workshop - your one-stop shop for the best add-ons available. Here you can create, discover, and download a nearly endless supply of top-quality user-created content.
A cross-platform cloud
Seamless content delivery, storage you donít have to think about and automatic updates to everything. Switch machines and pick up your game where you left off, and donít worry about saving your preferences. Itís all in the Steam Cloud.
Constantly evolving
Steam itself has been a constantly evolving service since its debut in 2003. SteamOS will continue to deliver not only valuable game updates directly from content makers, but also regular additions and new features to the OS itself.
Worldwide
Steam is in 185 countries and has been translated into 25 languages. As a truly global platform, Steam, and now SteamOS, brings entertainment to an audience without borders.
Downloadable soon. Free forever!
SteamOS will be available soon as a free download for users and as a freely licensable operating system for manufacturers. Stay tuned in the coming days for more information.

10  Economy / Service Announcements / BitcoinManiac Provably Fair Verification | Open Source Javascript on: September 17, 2013, 01:38:43 PM
http://bitcoinmaniac.com/verify

Hello guys, I recently made a new open source javascript verifier for gambling sites that offer provably fair verification. Currently, there is only Just-Dice and PrimeDice.

Right now, it is listed on JD's "Fair?" page and Stunna told me that he would link to it on his site as well.

If you would like to see your website listed on here, I will do it for free. Just provide me the details of your verification, preferrably a link on your site that explains it as you should have one if you're doing that anyways. All I ask is that maybe you could buy some adspace on my website for a while, it helps pay the hosting costs that come out of my own pocket.

I am a learning developer/designer, and I appreciate any constructive critisism you might have. Thanks for using!

I've made a list of inputs.io faucets on my site, http://bitcoinmaniac.com

I'm learning how to code and do webdesign, so i'd appreciate it if you'd check out my site.

If there's a faucet that's not on there that you'd like on there, PM me and i'll look into it.
13  Other / Meta / Thank you, Bitcoin Forum on: August 21, 2013, 03:54:08 AM
Hello, a lot of you know me. I'm a highschool student that's incredibly interested in technology and semi-recently, web design. I discovered Bitcoin about a year ago, and decided that I would follow and see where it all goes. It's been great, especially all the hilarious drama. More on topic, about a month ago, I made myself a goal, to own 1 Bitcoin by the end of the year, but not by purchasing it, by earning it by providing services among other things. Well, I'm going to be able to finish a bit early, as I will be paid on the third of this coming month and I'll finally have my first bitcoin. But I didn't make this post to talk about how happy I am, and trust me, I am very happy. I made this post to thank the members of not only bitcointalk but the whole bitcoin community. You guys are great. A number of you have helped me in learning how to design my first website, and learning how to be a good designer. Many of you have helped me by giving away bitcoins to try your wonderful new services that you have made. I hope one day I will be able to do the same. Without the Bitcoin community, I wouldn't know half as much as I know now, and I wouldn't be having nearly as much fun learning web design as I am.

tl;dr Thank ou Bitcoin community for all that you have done for me, and for all of your support. Your generosity certainly does not go unnoticed.

(Ps, if you want to see my website, it's at http://bitcoinmaniac.com)
14  Economy / Gambling / Mooshire's Bitcoin Raffle, 0.01 Entry, 16 tickets, Provably Fair. Round #2! on: August 11, 2013, 09:19:05 PM

Ticket cost: 0.01 BTC
Total tickets: 16
Prize: 0.15 BTC

To buy tickets, send any multiple of 0.01 to 13rRWHPWXzSvEWdirbL6p34cVPrtsvsxrv

The winner will be determined in this manner:
I will have my secret, say it's potatoes.
After the last ticket is bought, I will post saying the next satoshidice secret that I will be using. Say that one is bread. All of them can be found at http://satoshidice.com/secretslist.php
The secrets will be added like so: potatoesbread
The resulting string will then be SHA-256 hashed, and the person with the ticket corresponding to the first character of the resulting hash wins the prize.

Good luck!

With all the difficulty increase, is it possible to even break even when buying miners anymore?
16  Economy / Gambling / Mining pool lotto on: August 05, 2013, 05:29:20 AM
Hello bitcointalk, wanted to gauge your interest here. What if I were to set up a lotto where instead of buying tickets, you mined? For example: for every x shares you mined, that would net you 1 ticket into the lottery. If there is interest here, I will talk to some experts here about how I could make this provably fair. Please post below with questions or concerns. Thanks for reading!

19  Economy / Service Discussion / BitVegas admin MIA on: August 01, 2013, 02:47:11 AM
For around 3-4 weeks now the admin of BitVegas, known as Murderscene in minecraft, bitvegas on here also http://reddit.com/u/bitvegas , has not responded to any messages on any service (including skype and reddit) and has not been seen on the server. Not sure what happened to him, but he hasn't abandoned his casino completely yet. The hot wallet is still being refilled and he is on skype, but only on Do not Disturb, so he cannot receive messages, and has updated his server to the latest version of minecraft. He has not talked to any of the staff on his server either. I believe it was rumored before that he was on a hard work schedule, but to completely ignore everyone in your casino for almost a month now is unacceptable.
