1  Economy / Goods / [SOLD] 120w Foldable Military Solar Panel on: August 05, 2015, 01:10:27 PM
I am selling a used Powerfilm 120 watt FM16-7200 foldable solar panel. It is in perfect working order and cosmetic condition.  These normally go for $1500 to $1700 USD. I am selling for $999 in BTC equivalent to continental USA addresses only because of the military nature of the product. It folds up small enough that it could be put in a large backpack. Just throw it on the ground and open it up to use. The 120 watts is theoretical maximum - I've only ever gotten 70 to 80 watts from it because I lay it flat on the ground and the sun shines on it at an angle.  The color is coyote tan for desert use. I use it for emergency communications through an MPPT charge controller (not included) and a LiFePO4 battery (not included).

I am willing to escrow through an established and well known USA escrow agent with at least two years of history.  (edit: buyer pays escrow fee)

Please PM me if you are interested, I can send you photos.

3  Bitcoin / Electrum / Restore doesn't work moving from 1.9 --> 1.8.1 on: October 28, 2013, 07:03:30 PM
I have a wallet with a positive balance in 1.9.  If I do a restore using 1.8.1 software, I type the seed words expecting to see the public keys and the positive balance and don't.

I've heard that 1.9 uses compressed keys which would explain why the keys look different, but why would I not see the positive balance?

Edit - I know I shouldn't use 1.9 (git) for anything important. But I'm trying to test the crap out of this software to see if I can trust it.
4  Economy / Digital goods / [WTS] 100 BFL 25% off chip credits on: August 09, 2013, 02:29:43 PM

5  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] 60 Gh/s BFL ASIC Single - IN HAND - immediate ship on: August 08, 2013, 03:04:42 PM
For sale for immediate shipment (In hand) - 60 Gh/s model BFL ASIC single. It does not include a power supply. You need to use your own PC power supply with two PCI/E video card cables. Power usage is approximately 295 watts. Free priority shipping to continental USA buyers. I will do full escrow through John K if required (assuming he agrees). Buyer pays all escrow fees and additional shipping from John K to you. There is a scratch on the case - it was delivered that way from BFL. If cosmetics bother you - don't buy it. It looks like they were put together in a rush.

Price is 95 BTC.   Edit - Price droped to 75 BTC.

If you live in the midwest and are willing to drive to Indiana, we can do a direct deal for the equivalent dollars. Contact me for details.

Edit - I just found out JohnK is not in the USA, so full escrow is not possible with him.

6  Bitcoin / Mining support / Had any luck with Linux Mint Mate 15? on: July 18, 2013, 07:07:32 PM
I'm trying to get cgminer working with AMD drivers on Linux Mint (Olivia) Mate 15. So far, no luck. The closest I've got is everything appears to work, but no shares are accepted. Card is a 5850. If you have been successful, which version of AMD driver did you use and which guide did you follow?


P.S.  I'm normally a Ubuntu guy, but I'm trying to get into Mint now that they support encrypted root installs.

10  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / BFL just raised prices significantly - and changed the specs on: April 04, 2013, 04:35:01 PM

I bet you people waiting for BFL to ship before you order regret that now.
11  Bitcoin / Mining / Stratum-like support in bitcoind? on: March 24, 2013, 05:31:54 PM
Is there any way to reduce the amount of network traffic between a miner (cgminer) and a remote bitcoind instance?  Something like variable difficulty or stratum?

Should I run my own pool software on the remote instance that supports stratum, if so, which one?
12  Economy / Trading Discussion / Best way to buy an iPhone directly from Apple in USA? on: January 06, 2013, 01:49:06 PM
What is the best way to buy an iPhone directly from Apple?  Should I load a Visa card? If so, which one?  Does Apple allow paying from multiple sources, ie, multiple cards?

I was more fascinated by their custom cooling solution than anything else:
14  Bitcoin / Hardware / Mobile car-based mining operation entirely possible on: November 26, 2012, 02:52:43 PM
I'm been playing with the Raspberry Pi, which only consumes 4 or 5 watts of power, compiling cgminer on it, etc and combined with this little wireless adapter:

I got to thinking - with the following you could run a totally mobile mining operation out of your truck or car:

1.  Android Phone running a wireless hotspot
2.  Your favorite USB mining device, 12 Volt input connected to a cigarette adapter.
3.  Raspberry Pi running Debian and cgminer
4.  Cigarette adapter - to USB to power the Pi.

You could be driving to Grandma's house over Christmas while mining the entire trip. Or a trucker who lives in his rig could mine.
15  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Copying .bitcoin to a new machine - fail on: November 20, 2012, 04:05:12 PM
I decided it would be fun to try to run the bitcoind client on a Raspberry Pi. Mostly because I wanted to try p2pool and it requires that the client is always running.

So I compiled the latest bitcoind from git on the Raspberry and fired it up - after 24 hours, it was not even close to being done with the block chain.

I then copied the .bitcoin directory contents from another machine (a standard PC) to the Pi and deleted the wallet.dat file so it would create a new one. Well, when bitcoind started up, it started all over from the beginning with the lowest block numbers.

Is there something I need to do on the sending-side before copying the .bitcoin directory to a new PC so I don't have to start over and download and process the whole blockchain?

Edit - I suspect I have to detach the databases first in the client...
Edit - Detaching the databases before copying didn't help.

17  Other / Off-topic / BFL quietly changes from internal to external power supply for SC on: September 10, 2012, 08:32:55 PM
BFL_Josh mentioned in another post that the single was using a new power supply brick.
I distinctly remember them mentioning an internal power supply.  So here's a screen shot of the original order form that mentions the internal power supply, and a shot of the new order form where they quietly changed the language and removed references to the internal power supply. (I make PDF's of all of the order forms and marketing material when I order something expensive). No great conspiracy, but interesting nevertheless.   Edit - I see Josh already posted about it and said it was a mistake.

Old order form:

New order form:
18  Economy / Computer hardware / [withdrawn] BFL Single Power supply cables for PC power supply - new lower price on: July 07, 2012, 04:18:39 PM
Offer withdrawn - I've discovered BFL will be using external wall warts after all on the new SC units:

I have three cables for use with BFL Single FPGA miners so you can power them from a PC power supply. They are made to be used with the blue PCIE connectors on a Corsair HX1000W but you can adapt them to your power supply. The connectors are spaced so the BFL's get proper airflow. Two of the assemblies have can power four BFL's each. One assembly can power three BFL's. In total, you can power 11 BFL's.

Make sure you test the polarity of the cables BEFORE using them on your equipment. The center should be positive.

They are very well made by a fellow here on the forums, but I canceled my big order and only used them on one Single. I am asking 6 BTC total for all three. Price includes shipping. Power supply not included. Selling to continental USA members only. PM me if you are interested.

19  Other / Off-topic / Will the new BFL SC ASIC units work with p2pool? on: June 29, 2012, 12:07:43 PM
Will the new units have the same problem as the old Singles where it wouldn't stop working on a problem for 5 seconds making it useless for p2pool?
20  Other / Off-topic / Will the CGMINER developer get a loaner unit from BFL? on: June 29, 2012, 12:06:44 PM
Will the developer of CGMINER ( get a unit to facilitate the development and testing with the ASIC hardware? It would be nice to have working third-party software when the ASICs ship so we don't have expensive paper weights.
