I read the dell Server PSU are the best.

To clarify, I have 400Amps, There's more than enough juice to run 100,000watts.

Is it hard to convert the 750W Dell PSU to run S1s?

You can buy just the breakout boards or the whole kit with everything. I have one of these and it works great.

I hand soldered the main terminals on mine and made up some links and resistor packs with jumper cables for the control pins.

In quantity I could probably do them in 10 mins a PSU.

They are loud though.

Good Luck

Will it be possible to use the monarch to distill moonshine?  Tongue

if the water temp is 105c or more you could produce good moonshine Smiley

Thank God, That will ease the tensions of those who got sucked into this..   Grin

Hope this helps also -

I do admit, it is curious why RT should promote BTC , am sure there is an angle.

There is so much at play these days that its hard to get the real game plan - see ZH for a few ideas this last week.

Title is bullcr@p,
Artic is $hit
ur a mad bunch,


This brings an interesting thought on side chains.

Remove bitcoins from the chain, Print notes with a scratch panel for the private key (of the side change).

Bitcoin Fondation or DIY Banks of Bitcoin produce or distribute notes to outlets (shops ext.)

Anyone with the side change on there client can reintroduce the notes back (from side chain) into Bitcoin.

Bitcoin with the characteristics of paper.


Welcome back China  Grin

Edit: On reflection this can already be done now   Roll Eyes

But this could be useful for Fiat to obtain backing from Bitcoin.
 i.e. $1 is backed by 1 Satoshi,

If the Gov needs to print more, they have to buy more BTC
If there $$ get blown up they are still worth 1 Satoshi

The judge's most damning comments, however, centered on his overall BFL observations:
Now, there is a stench coming from Butterfly Labs. It's a strong smell. It's not enough to send you to prison today, because, to be quite honest with you, if it was, we'd be talking about 24 months in prison. It's not—I think it's too close. I think [defense witness] Mr. Bourne did a very good job of testifying, and it assisted your defense greatly. But if I find out that there is this fraud word involved in this part, you know, Mr. Vleisides, as we say here at the courthouse, you need to get your toothbrush and get your things in order, because fraud will not be tolerated, you understand that? So I would work very hard to make these consumers happy consumers who you've dealt with.

Ahh, Dear Joshie,
Am not very happy, you've not made me happy.
Must try harder..  for your pal Vleisides sake Wink

234  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: New Cold Storage - USB Boot Image on: April 20, 2014, 05:25:16 AM
problem is.. once the images become popular / newbie friendly who is to stop people making a malicious version ?

It should be fairly easy to script everything you'd need.. maybe even make a nice pretty http/s gui or something as well... and i've need made my own image before but i imagine it should be just a matter of following 1 or the 10000 howtos on google.

If you new to this linux this would be a good project to do yourself to learn Smiley

I hope people would use an offical Git to avoid a malicious version.
Yes all can be done now by lots of research of howtoo's and I shall probably do this in time if no one steps upto the mark.

It this stage am more Interested in what I maybe missing and general criticisms. Food is  thought.
For Instance the image will need to securely hold the questions/answers to my password without being vulnerable to them being extracted from the image/system. Am not sure how that could be implemented due to my lack of knowledge.
235  Bitcoin / Project Development / New Cold Storage - USB Boot Image on: April 20, 2014, 01:19:24 AM
USB Image

I think I, and most users of Bitcoin have serious concerns with the backup and storage of Bitcoin.
I therefore propose that we create a common format for Digital Backup for if the worst happens.

The main points of the Image I think should be as follows.

1. The Image should be non technical for the user.
2. The Image should not require my loved ones to remember a password.
3. The Image should be as secure as possible.
4. The Image should take the end user to the point of being able to send a transaction.
What I propose, is that the Image should
1. Be a Linux Boot Image on USB or similar and stored with Instructions on how to change the bois to boot from the Image.
2. Should check that there is no Interenet Connection on start and disable any present.
3. Alow the user to use a webcam and manual input to add additional private keys.
4. Decrypt Bip based on a few pre configured questions.
5. Inject the private keys into a bitcoin wallet
6. Prompt the user to add there own password to the new wallet.
7. Reinstate Network Connections
8. Download/Update the Blockchain
9. Prompt the user as to when the system is ready to make the transaction.

The Image should also have scripts for the setup, where by I can
1. Securely produce a new private keys
2. Encrypt the keys using bip and some security questions
3. Produce paper keys
4. Clean the keys from the system

So the end result will be that my family only need to boot the USB and follow the Instructions provided on screen.
They will of course still need to find my BIP protected Keys (but they will know where they are hidden)
My BIP password would be a combination of 3 or 4 pieces of information that they would know. That I have set in the software on the Image, like mothers name/childs date of birth/pets name.

I think this is quite easy to setup, but will take me ages as am quite new to Linux. So would be a great project for someone else. Wink

Please provide thoughts and criticisms …
236  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: what do miners know what speculators don't on: April 19, 2014, 11:59:39 PM
There are two points to consider.
First is the lag, due to the previous preorder BS, there has already been a huge lag between the decision (and maths) of a purchase and its deployment.
What made sense 6 months ago looks silly today. Fortunately those days are all but gone so we rejoin reality in a few months time.

The second point is power, that is the main point. We are not quite there yet but miners are still profitable. Forget getting what you paid back for your miner as its not always relevant.

What is relevant is
Does it Make more than it costs to run?
If yes then it mines, if no it will be switched off.

Am not much of a user of facebook so am not that familar with its possibilities

However would it not just be a case of someone making a facebook app that utilizes a wallet.

This should be pretty easy to do I think ?
