1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Questions about the new Bitcoin Core... on: April 03, 2014, 01:50:13 PM
Do the wallet.dat and blockchain files from qt 0.8.5 work with it? I'm gone for a month
and the qt option disappears!  lol   I hope it's mostly just a renaming of the program.

Is there an exchange or other website that can send emails or text messages when alt prices reach a certain amount or % change?

If not, there should be.  lol

thanks

FYI:  https://coin-horse.com/MON/#

And no, it is not my site. Just figured you guys would want something to do with all your
current nearly worthless coins.

Maybe we can bring the coin back to life.

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / When do new coins usually peak in price? on: December 26, 2013, 03:10:06 AM
Just wondering what pattern people have noticed from the date that a coin is first listed on cryptsy till it initally peaks and then when it peaks after the dump. I know it varies based on any redeeming qualities of the coin and the team and promotion behind it. But what are the general patterns? Also, any comments on the timing of the ultimate death of the coin although I see even feathercoin is still selling.

thanks
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Any issue with multiple wallets on the same drive? on: December 10, 2013, 02:42:28 PM
I'm at the point now where keeping all of my BTC in one wallet is too big of a security risk. I want to send some to a new wallet and just leave them there and rename the wallet.dat file when not updating the blockchain. I already use the -datadir command to keep the blockchain/wallet file in the same directory as the client. Are there any other issue I should be aware of when using multiple directories on the same drive? Planning on using less obvious names for these other directories and hoping that any stealer program will only take the active wallet file at most.

thanks

Edit: Windows 7, and I know not to run more than one version of the client at once.
7  Bitcoin / Project Development / Idea to publicize bitcoin further on: December 06, 2013, 08:38:33 PM
I had a thought the other day that if someone is the owner of a company and has a lot of bitcoins, maybe they could give all their employees an additional XMAS bonus of some bitcoin on a flashdrive. This would have a fairly far reaching effect because it may spur the employees into buying more or mining. Plus, they tell friends, etc. We as individuals could also give some as gifts. I know the main problem with this is knowing how to keep the client updated, but you could throw some how-to FAQs on there so that even if they know a technical person, they are all set.
8  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / CGKILL Batchfile on: December 04, 2013, 12:47:35 PM
I came up with the following and if you are used to working with batchfiles, you should be able to use it. I've found it extremely useful because it keeps cgminer running and you no longer have to worry about a dead card and losing money while
at work. Follow the instructions in the REM lines:(you must start it BEFORE the cgminer batchfile)
---------------------------------------------------
REM Requires cgminer to be run with 2>Log.txt parameter AFTER
REM starting this batchfile.
REM Requires statement of FILE=<name of cgminer batchfile>
REM in a file called INPUT.txt
REM Also, in all your different cgminer batchfiles, put a
REM line to ECHO it's name to the input file like:
REM ECHO FILE=cg.bat > INPUT.txt

DEL Log.txt
SET /A COUNT=0

:LOOP
SET /A COUNT+=1
REM get name of current cgminer batchfile
for /f "delims=" %%x in (INPUT.txt) do (set "%%x")

REM check for dead card and restart cgminer, if so...
FINDSTR /m "DEAD" Log.txt
if %errorlevel%==0 (
Taskkill /IM cgminer.exe /F
TIMEOUT 10
ECHO %DATE% >> RESTARTS.txt
ECHO %TIME% >> RESTARTS.txt
DEL Log.txt
REM insert name of cgminer start batchfile after this line
START CALL %FILE%
)

REM Deletes Logfile every hour so that searching it is quick enough.
IF "%COUNT%" == "30" (
Taskkill /IM cgminer.exe /F
TIMEOUT 10
DEL Log.txt
SET /A COUNT=0
REM insert name of cgminer start batchfile after this line
START CALL %FILE%
)

REM wait two minutes to recheck for dead card
TIMEOUT 120

GOTO LOOP
------------------------------------------------------
9  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Any fluke solo luck stories? on: October 23, 2013, 02:00:33 PM
So with all the talk of difficulty being so high soon that even a KNC will not cut it, I was wondering how many of you have tried solo BTC mining and actually hit a block quickly against all odds? I'm sure the opposite has happened also where the calculator says you should hit a block every two months and it actually took four...

Been having trouble on EMC for about 3 days on and off and now cannot get on us2 or us3 at all. Their forum has others reporting the same thing but no news on their site that I can find.

Check it out Deus Ex fans. I duplicated in VB, the concepts of the hacking mini-game! It's Freeware.

It's RANDOM network layout! :-D

Consider it Beta version.

Any of you geeks have one of these laying around you can spare? I have a custom program written around one and need a backup. They were sold about 10 years ago.

thanks!
13  Economy / Economics / Which is better - Jale in hand now, or a Single in 3 months? on: June 23, 2013, 03:30:05 PM
Assuming both cost about the same, and the difficulty keeps going up exponentially... seems like a tough one to call. I suppose very long term, more hashrate would be better, but NOW is the time to mine before things get really out of hand.

Several years ago, I had made an encryption program using several passes of different methods, one after the other, and been looking for someone to try to break it since. Anyone interested to trying to decrypt a simple paragraph? I think how well it works is dependant on what keys you choose, so it may vary greatly how effective it is.

20  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / batchfile to restart cgminer in Windows, if a card dies on: May 28, 2013, 06:32:59 PM
I have not actually HAD a card die since I got this going, but I'm 99% certain it will work.
I did alot of research on various aspects of batchfile functions to piece this together.
I know the cgwatcher program can do this, but this is simpler.

There are five steps:

1) Make a file in your cgminer directory called INPUT.txt with FILE=<name of cgminer batchfile> in it.

2) Put this line in all your various cg batchfiles: ECHO FILE=<name of cgminer batchfile> > INPUT.txt

3) Put the following into any batchfile name you want: (I use CG_Kill.bat)

REM Requires cgminer to be run with 2>Log.txt parameter AFTER
REM starting this batchfile.
REM Requires statement of FILE=<name of cgminer batchfile>
REM in a file called INPUT.txt
REM Also, in all your different cgminer batchfiles, put a
REM line to ECHO it's name to the input file like:
REM ECHO FILE=cg.bat > INPUT.txt

DEL Log.txt
SET /A COUNT=0

:LOOP
SET /A COUNT+=1
REM get name of current cgminer batchfile
for /f "delims=" %%x in (INPUT.txt) do (set "%%x")

REM check for dead card and restart cgminer, if so...
FINDSTR /m "DEAD" Log.txt
if %errorlevel%==0 (
Taskkill /IM cgminer.exe /F
TIMEOUT 10
ECHO %DATE% >> RESTARTS.txt
ECHO %TIME% >> RESTARTS.txt
DEL Log.txt
REM insert name of cgminer start batchfile after this line
START CALL %FILE%
)

REM Deletes Logfile every hour so that searching it is quick enough.
IF "%COUNT%" == "30" (
Taskkill /IM cgminer.exe /F
TIMEOUT 10
DEL Log.txt
SET /A COUNT=0
REM insert name of cgminer start batchfile after this line
START CALL %FILE%
)

REM wait two minutes to recheck for dead card
TIMEOUT 120

GOTO LOOP

4) Requires cgminer to be run with 2>Log.txt parameter AFTER
starting this batchfile.

5) Add an EXIT command after the cgminer command to your cg batchfiles. (prevent multiple open windows)
So, if your cg batchfile was coinpool.bat you would have this in it:

ECHO FILE=coinpool.bat > INPUT.txt
cgminer blah blah <parameters> 2>Log.txt
EXIT

Note: it will restart cgminer once an hour as part of the process of not letting the logfile get too big.
