Yes we know they are living in your warehouse hashing away, I'd like to know when they are leaving, including the CPP we were promised

Hey everyone, has ANYONE received any product from Bitmine/Coincraft since September 2013?

OMG.
BFL all over again.
You have to admit that BFL practices are becoming business standards in this industry.

Screw the customer is standard business standard.
243  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Being too lazy to search!! on: February 20, 2014, 01:54:48 AM
a quick search turned this

Oh WOW Thanks for taking the time to search. Looks like the right card and it is listed on the LTC hardware comparison Wiki and hashes at 21 KH/s (kinda slow, but better than nothing on an old XP PC).
I need to re-hone my skills google searching! Wink
244  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The story of MtGox on: February 19, 2014, 03:35:05 PM
A good read:
Bitcoinís largest exchange is dying. Hereís why thatís not a problem for Bitcoin.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/02/15/bitcoins-largest-exchange-is-dying-heres-why-thats-not-a-problem-for-bitcoin/

Here's another good read:
http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2013/11/mtgox/

And so now I have an idea: I will hire a bunch of 19-year old Russian hackers and form our own "Stratton Oakmont, BTC Inc." (seen the movie "Wolf of Wall street"?). We will buy MtGox for next to nothing and turn it around. Everyone will be paid with Vodka and the sexual favors of Japanese schoolgirls. Yes - you guessed it - our headquarters will be in Tokyo, the spiritual capital of Bitcoin.
Since a bunch of "core developers" of BTC clients (such as Bitcoin-QT and other clients) can get together and agree on a consensus to modify the way a blockchain is validated, we will develop our own new client (let's call it "Bitcoin-SO" (where SO is short for Stratton Oakmont), and this new client will compete with Bitcoin-QT and will direct 0.0001 BTC of every network transaction to our personal wallets.

In its initial launch phase, I am taking applications to fill various positions within the startup company. Who's in?
245  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / GPU comatible with OpenCL on: February 18, 2014, 10:39:18 PM
I used 2.6 catalyst on windows xp. It worked fine for litecoining and bitcoining.
What radeon card are you using, OP?

I have a Sapphire Radeon 9200SE, which I was told does not support OpenCL (too old). It is not even listed on the Litecoin Hardware Comparison Wiki. I have pretty much given up on it.
Problem is that XP system I have has only PCI (NOT PCI-e) slots, are there any GPU's that will fit a PCI slot that support OpenCL for mining LTC?
246  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Bitcoin Central AUthority on: February 14, 2014, 02:49:12 PM
However you need consensus to propagate it around the network.

Consensus of who?
A group of people?
An Organization?
Do we have a list of the names of those people somewhere and  where they live ?
247  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / One-Man Protest at MtGpx Offices on: February 14, 2014, 02:29:51 PM
This basically sums up the Gox attitude towards custommers. Just look how that prick tries to avoid conversation.  I won't even talk to you for 10 seconds, get out of my way, don't touch me Cheesy

When you consider that some people have their lifetime savings invested in a cryptocurrency...
And when you look and see how fragile the Bitcoin economy is... a bug discovered in the network software locks thousands of people out of their Bitcoin deposits at the world's largest exchange.

MtGox is talking about:
-  "The Bitcoin core developers"... they have "discussed" the solution proposed.
and,
- allow Bitcoin withdrawals again once the MtGox solution has been approved and standardized.

Huh? I thought Bitcoin was a decentralized currency with no central authority regulating it. And if we can alter the algorithms and checks now in place, who to say anyone cannot do it in the future again (some other "Core Developers" from another exchange)?

Can I send a couple of hookers to those "core developers " to get them to work for me?

"A bug in the bitcoin software makes it possible for someone to use the Bitcoin network to alter transaction details to make it seem like a sending of bitcoins to a bitcoin wallet did not occur."
"We have discussed this solution with the Bitcoin core developers and will allow Bitcoin withdrawals again once it has been approved and standardized."

I knew it... Satoshi Nakamoto works for MtGox... and it's all going downhill from here.

Actually... NOT. Price of BTC is pulling back up on both Coinbase and BTC-e (but continues to drop on MtGox).
If you want to gamble your money, buy on MtGox right now and hope they will ever allow withdrawals again.

Bitcoin Crumbles To 3-Month Lows On Mt.Gox As CEO Defends Exchange

This is pretty serious IMO. First, MtGox makes it virtually impossible (or painfully slow) to withdraw cash. Now it's impossible to withdraw your own Bitcoins. What kind of Business/exchange is this?
I have a fortune of 0.64 BTC in my MtGox account and I seriously think I have lost them forever.
Price of BTC is in free fall, not only on Gox, but also on other exchanges (been watching last 2 hours).
Panic selling anyone?
250  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / CPU-restricted coin? on: February 08, 2014, 02:01:44 PM
If you're going to CPU mine, DO NOT mine scrypt (kinda pointless now).  Mine a CPU restricted coin otherwise you're pretty much just spinning your wheels.
Sure, agreed. The machine running 24hr/7 anyway (with the stratum proxy on it) so I thought might as well let it mine some LTCs with CPUMiner.
I am not familiar with any "CPU-restricted" coins (don't know any). Any suggestions? a good pool to join?
251  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 0.02 BTC for anyone who has ATI OpenCL APP SDK for Windows XP on: February 08, 2014, 06:57:38 AM
You're wasting a lot of time I believe the radeon 4000 series was the first card to support opencl
Radeon 9220 SE is too old to mine  even scrypt coins with.

I think you are right.
I have given up on mining LTC with the Radeon 9220 SE on that XP machine.
Instead, I installed CPUMiner and now shoveling LTCs at the whopping rate of 1 KH/s
I am also running on it a stratum proxy (mining_proxy.exe for Windows) for my ASICMINER erupter blades and that seems to work just fine.

Thanks everyone for all the help. It's really nice so many people on this forum and other forums are willing to give advice and help struggling miners! :-)

The 0.02 BTC offer is hereby now rescinded and retracted :-)

May the B/LTC force be with you all.
252  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 0.02 BTC for anyone who has ATI OpenCL APP SDK for Windows XP on: February 07, 2014, 05:51:47 PM
try this version also
is it downloading???

Thanks again vpasic,
I must be doing something wrong because that link only downloads Open Download Manager (ODM) which I do not want to install.
Can you please d/l the driver for me and after I verify it works on my XP system, I will pay the additional 0.02 BTC?
I tried a couple of old versions as well but none worked.
Looks like the old Catalyst drivers came with OpenCL included! so the difficulty now is finding the correct one for the Radeon 9220 SE that will recognize the adapter and install correctly.
253  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 0.02 BTC for anyone who has ATI OpenCL APP SDK for Windows XP on: February 07, 2014, 12:47:33 AM
http[Suspicious link removed]

Thanks vpasic. I sent you the 0.02.
the transaction ID is:
d378c7c9e9eda379c064174a08eb0cef083eb9f69064d56fe5356bcce263d9ca

However, I am still unable to get it to work.
The Catalyst (video) driver I have installed is the latest available from ATI (ver 6.11 I think) and it looks like it does NOT support OpenCL.
When I run ati-stream-sdk-v2.3-xp32.exe , I get a message informing me of that.
I guess I need an old Catalyst (video) driver that supports OpenCL, maybe the driver that was available back then when ATI Stream ver 2.3 was released.
My Video card is Radeon 9220 SE
Anyone who can provide me with a catalyst (video) driver that supports OpenCL and I verify it works on my XP machine will get another 0.02 BTC.
254  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 0.02 BTC for anyone who has ATI OpenCL APP SDK for Windows XP on: February 06, 2014, 08:33:04 PM
Spent hours searching for version 2.3 of the ATI Stream SDK for Windows XP as mentioned in the following link:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=10033.0

Specifically, I am looking for :
http[Suspicious link removed]
This link is now broken. ATI has removed all Stream SDK downloads for Windows XP

Yet I am sure someone out there must have it. Will pay 0.02 BTC to anyone who can email it to me.
The filename is ati-stream-sdk-v2.3-xp32.exe

Meh $10,000 /btc is nothing, talk to me when it hits $100,000

I am leaving ONE BTC to my children and Grand children. It'll be worth US$1 Million in their lifetime.
My Grand Son will take one of my left-behind ASICMiner USB erupter sticks and auction it off for another Million as an ancient historical relic.
256  Bitcoin / Group buys / Re: Organizing a group buy for 50+ BFL 600 GH/s Monarch ASIC cards on: January 06, 2014, 03:23:22 PM
When are these "supposed" to "ship"?

"These"? You mean KNC and Cointerra? The 3 TH/s Neptune from KNC is scheduled to ship in March / April 2014.
They say they will produce "only" 1500 of them.
Imagine 1500 of those 3 TH/s miners hitting the mining world BEFORE the first BFL monarchs ship.
The Monarch is going to be - yet again - OOA.
257  Bitcoin / Group buys / Re: Organizing a group buy for 50+ BFL 600 GH/s Monarch ASIC cards on: January 06, 2014, 05:55:11 AM
They have been late with every one of thier products...FPGA-3-4 months,ASIC 65nm-6-10 months(maybe more).What makes you think they learned anything  Cheesy

The Jalapeno I ordered in April 2013 was delivered to me late November 2013. It was simply OOA (Obsolete on Arrival). When I ordered it in April, the math showed a decent profit running it. By the time I received it, it was pulling electricity (not to mention the fan noise) more than it is generating in revenue.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...

And since we are on the topic of vaporware... I see a lot of miners dumping their hardware on eBay. Are they recouping their money to re-invest in pre-ordering (more vaporware) from KNC and Cointerra?
258  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Re: Erupter Blade V2 issue - not powering on on: January 06, 2014, 05:36:20 AM
Hmmm... To post pictures, I'd have to reach to the shelf where the blade is sitting, unplug it, take pictures and then re-plug it. Lost revenue, too much work. There are a couple of pictures already posted showing the little red fuse with the letter R on it. It is soldered on the board and you cannot remove it to replace it.
Thinking back now about it, I could have simply used "Wire Glue" Conductive Glue instead of soldering.
If you look at a picture of the fuse, you will a small tiny metal surface on both sides of it. Just buy a 10A auto fuse from Auto Zone or any auto parts shop. Apply a tiny amount of the conductive glue to the two ends of the auto fuse and to the two tiny surfaces next to the blown fuse.
If you google ""Wire Glue" Conductive Glue", you will see what I mean. I do not know for sure it'll work, but it certainly is much less messy than soldering.
259  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Re: Erupter Blade V2 issue - not powering on on: January 04, 2014, 07:44:12 PM
Soldering a fuse to bypass the blown one is so messy (I am new at this). I do not know if now there's a new fuse between the 2 sides of the fuse assembly , or the 2 sides are just permanently jumpered together! The board powered-up though and I am now hashing happily!
260  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Re: Erupter Blade V2 issue - not powering on on: January 04, 2014, 05:26:35 AM
What is the cause of the fuses blowing?

Reversing the yellow and black wires on the connector.
 Yellow should go where + is marked on the connector.
Black should go where - is marked on the connector.
