QQ: is it worth mining with Amazon EC2? Anyone doing it?

Well someone (about 18,000 people signed up to perform Primecoin mining) couldn't resist to do it...

run ./ in the bfgminer source dir

then you will find the base58.c in the libblkmaker dir

Had you contacted or, you would've been accommodated.

I have emailed james at at 25 okt and 27 okt about 4 times, which he never did answer, so what james writes here is bullshit!

"Billing mix up?"
PPS, i just sent you a message with an explanation of why it didn't mark your payment paid.

It's a simple billing mix up, you had 'paypal' set as your payment gateway. So the billing system will be waiting for BTC on the paypal gw, which obviously, can never complete (hopefully Tongue)

I have paid every month in bitcoin, i haven't even subscribed to the paypal option, i may have looked what other options are there to pay to, but never subscribed to the paypal option at BitVPS. What "Billing mix up?"

One thing that finally came out, he sents me a payment conformtion for those BTC 2.13.

9  Economy / Scam Accusations / BitVPS not very trustworthy on: October 28, 2012, 07:16:49 PM
I never wanted to write this thread, its very sad to write about being scammed in bitcoinland.

On 20 okt 2012 i got my monthly invoice from BitVPS

On 22 okt 2012 around (16.30 hour, Amsterdam TimeZone, or 14.30 GMT) i logged into BitVPS client site to pay my monthly (

BitVPS client site gave me this BTC address to pay BTC 2.13 to: 1BjzEH9v3CvsrGPjsW7e491KJdCBQF6wpw

On 22 okt 2012 16.32 hour, i paid BTC2.13 to 1BjzEH9v3CvsrGPjsW7e491KJdCBQF6wpw , (see my wallet picture)

note: i never received an confirmation email from BitVPS for the first time.

On 25 okt 2012 BitVPS sent me an automated email that they didnt receive my monthly Huh
I sent BitVPS an email asking whats going on; BitVPS doesnt reply, NO email from BitVPS.

On 27 okt 2012 BitVPS sents me again an automated email that they didnt receive my btc, with notice that my website will be deleted???
Again i sent an email to BitVPS asking for an explanation and again BitVPS doesnt reply, NO email from BitVPS

When i lookup the BTC address on, it seems that this BTC adddress didnt excist before 22 okt 2012 (16.32 hour, Amsterdam Timezone, or 14.32 GMT), and that must be right if its generated by BitVPS's website.
On 23 okt the BTC2.13 is even spent. (see picture)

On 27 okt i send rg a bitcointalk forum PM, again he never responded to my question.

I hardly use the vps, sometimes to test websites when i need an ip, but thats it.
I never have problems with Mullvad, BTCGuild, Intersango and im doing business for more than 1 1/2 year with them.

I do know that rg doesnt like my email address, but an vps provider that takes your money and says 'we didnt get it' and doesnt respond to emails (besides automated bills), is not very kosjer.

BitVPS can have my BTC2.13 for november, i will never use that VPS provider again. BitVPS can consider this as being fired.
A vps provider that makes their money this way, by scamming their own clients, is not my vps provider.

I would be neat if you had a way that they could opt to download and run a miner in a pool (Eligius would be a perfect fit since it can payout to any address without registration) and mine enough to pay the access charge... Wink

I like the idea; Imagine people with smartphones on the streets bitcoinmining for hours to get 1 euro for internet acces, they won't have power left to internet. (would be fun to see tho)

13  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: wifihotspot to accept bitcoin payments on: May 17, 2011, 02:26:55 PM
Gnaffel: No. What he are talking about, is that you need to allow bitcoin clients to access the internet, eg you need to open port 6667 to and port 8333 to * in your payment gateway, hotspot, firewall, whatsoever thing you are using to prevent users who have not paid from accessing the internet.

Also beware of tunneling users, in other words, users who SSH's or SSL's over 8333 to bypass payment and surf for free. A wise option in this way can then be to have a empty bitcoind running (with no coins inside), which your firewall NATs all :8333 traffic to. This bitcoind will then be like a "proxy" to the world. The user does not need to send the coins to that bitcoind, thats bitcoind only connects the wifi bitcoin network to the wide bitcoin network. and passes transactions further and back. Then you don't need to have 6667 open. (Or you could set up a fake IRC server which all IRC traffic is NATed to, which only have one channel #bitcoin, which reports your gateway, eg as a bitcoin node).

Dont allow rpcallow=*! Its enough that they get a connection to a bitcoin node.

I have a walled garden set in the wifihotspot firmware with restricted internet acces where users can visit some pages on the net and use email for free. This can be usefull for restricting a bitcoindproxy internet acces.
When users connect to the wifihotspot they are forced to a payment page where they can pay via paypal or credit card, without pay no internet acces. this all works fine.
The firmware i use is an openwrt fork chillifire , and this only allows payment with paypal or credit card.
But i want them to have the choice to pay with bitcoins and thats why i started this thread i am looking for some php or html code that generates a bitcoin pay address that users can use to pay for the internet acces.
14  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: wifihotspot to accept bitcoin payments on: May 17, 2011, 12:35:22 PM
There is a php library that you might be able to use, but remember you have to unblock access of bitcoin clients to the internet before payment so that they can pay you.

There is a php library that you might be able to use
-Which php library are you refering to?

you have to unblock access of bitcoin clients to the internet before payment so that they can pay you
-Do you mean a secondairy bitcoind with rpcallow=* ;that makes sense. I wouldn't like to set my premier bitcoinclient open to everyone
15  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / wifihotspot to accept bitcoin payments on: May 17, 2011, 10:07:09 AM
I have a wifihotspot running on openwrt that accepts automated paypal payments for internet acces, but i would like to start accepting Bitcoins automated.

I have set Bitcoin payments as a new option, so if someone wants to pay with Bitcoins just email me, nothing automated yet.

I am looking for a php script to accept Bitcoin payments with the latest MtGox rates that i can build into the site or openwrt.

Anybody here with knowledge to bitcoin payment processing in php/html or others?

OK I had a system lock-up necessitating a hard reset.  Now Bitcoin won't start:

  EXCEPTION: 22DbRunRecoveryException      
   DbEnv::open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery      
   bitcoin in AppInit()

Can I just delete and re-run the script? There was nothing in the /bitcoin folder I needed.  In fact I don't think it ever created a wallet.dat file

If you delete wallet.dat you lose all your bitcoins. You can delete everything in .bitcoin but NOT Wallet.dat and Bitcoin.conf

Thank you. Yes, I installed AMDOverdriveCtrl right away; didn't want to overcook my new Radeon card.  Underclocked memory to 300mhz, GPU temp holding steady at about 69C now.  Makes a great spaceheater!

Would like to get Phoenix and BFI_INT working on this solo mining testbed. According to the lengthy Phoenix thread it should work. But I still get: Failed to connect...

phoenix$ python -u http://USER:PASS@ -k poclbm VECTORS BFI_INT DEVICE=1 WORKSIZE=128
[15/05/2011 09:18:48] Phoenix r76 starting...
[15/05/2011 09:18:51] Failed to connect, retrying...
[0 Khash/sec] [0 Accepted] [0 Rejected] [RPC]

Free coin to anyone who can help.

If you want to solomine you run your bitcoin client like:
in the .bitcoin directory you make a textfile named bitcoin.conf with the following text:

rpcuser=yourrpcusername (make a name)
rpcpassword=yourrpcpassword (make a password)

and start you bitcoinclient like: sudo ./bitcoin -server

and in the phoenixminer use rpcuser/password like: python -u http://RPCUSER:RPCPASSWORD@ -k poclbm VECTORS BFI_INT DEVICE=1 WORKSIZE=128

then you can start solomining

Gnaffel! It's working!  poclbm is showing 308 Mhash/s per core without any tweaking.  Seems I wasn't using the 'python' command and 'user='  Not pool mining yet, just testing.  Throwing out some serious heat - 84C core after several minutes. The phoenix command still errors with 'failed to connect.'  Is this how it's normally done; start poclbm and then phoenix?

Thanks; I sent you coin.

Welcome to the world of Bitcoin mining

84C is a little high, i keep mine going between 74C - 79C, play around with aticonfig: aticonfig -h (ati help)
aticonfig --odgt --adapter=all (GPU temperature), aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all (shows clock speed), aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0" (shows fan speed)

or try AMDOverDriveCtrl:

The phoenix error is because you haven't set a valid pool account.

Normally you only need one miner (poclbm or phoenix) going for one gpu card or 2 gpu's on crossfire.

19  Other / Obsolete (buying) / Re: 50 BTC if you write a complete guide on GPU mining on Ubuntu using ATI on: May 14, 2011, 10:30:36 PM
So . . . Tried to get this miner working using that guide today for about 2 hours, and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, nor if I'm just missing something simple.

Any tips or other places I should be looking?


When done installing you join one of the pools and start mining

- Joining a pool: you make an account at one of the pools, - - - - Eligius.?
to start a miner(poclbm or phoenix):
- go to youruserdirectory/poclbm and you start it with: python --port=8332 --user=username --pass=yourpassword --device =0
- go to youruserdirectory/phoenix and start it with: python -u http://username:password@poolservername:8332 -k poclbm VECTORS BFI_INT DEVICE=0 AGGRESSION=12

10. sudo tar xvfz icd-registration.tgz -C /

Just finished that step. Couldn't find the file. Searched for it and couldn't find it anywhere on the filesystem. Ideas?

What does this step even do?

Also, I'm running the default 11.04 build, 64 bit from the Ubuntu website.

git and svn aren't installed by default apparently.

Could you take a look in:
ls /etc/OpenCL/vendors
there should be 2 Ati-registration files: atiocl32.icd  and atiocl64.icd
