So, I think something is wrong with me. I wrote more than 15 posts since I joined till Sunday.
Brother I just check your post history you posted nearly 17 posts and from these few are in Games and Round section which are not counted

All posts are counted, from all boards. Not that is the problem. The problem is the following:

- you had 3 posts like this one:

I like your promo!

Username: PokerPlayer

Thanks!

These posts are not counted. So from start, from your 17 posts you remained with 14.

- you had also 2 posts of 1 line and 1 post of two lines. These kind of posts are mostly zero value posts and rarely are taken into account.

So from 14 eligible posts you remained with 11.

If you have less than 15 good posts, you will see yourself with 0 in the spreadsheet. If you have 20 posts, for example, and 2 not eligible  you will see the 2 denied posts and the 18 eligible. But if you have less than 15 eligible posts you will always appear with 0 as it would be a waste of time to write also the denied posts since the participant will not be paid anyway.

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What were the precursors of Bitcoin? on: September 27, 2020, 04:54:51 PM
The first to really capitalize on the market I would say. Since, eCash, although being very different from Bitcoin of today was a concept back in the 1980s, which I think was implemented into Digicash? As far as I know, this is the very foundations to what we now call cryptocurrencies, and its interesting to me that the concept was thought of many years ago. I'm not sure of the success of eCash, or Digicash, but I believe Bitcoin is the closest thing we've had that uses similar ish concepts that has garnered the interest of the mainstream media.

That's correct. Dr. David Chaum's (author od eCash) previous work was the one that inspired the Cypherpunks to try to implement a working and decentralized form of digital, untraceable money.

Some of these cryptographers started working on this dream they had: electronic cash. And they had a role model: Dr. David Chaum's DigiCash. David Chaum's work represented an inspiration for the Cypherpunks group and he can be called the grandfather of Cypherpunks. His writings (such as "Untraceable Electronic Mail, Return Addresses, and Digital Pseudonyms", "Blind Signatures for Untraceable Payments" or "Security without Identification Card Computers to make Big Brother Obsolete") proved he was thinking way ahead of his time. In 1989 he already managed to launch the electronic money company DigiCash Inc. The company offered to the public the eCash payment system and the CyberBucks coins, which were based on blind signatures. The proposal was actually applied in real world payments, being adopted by several banks, such as Mark Twain Bank from St. Louis, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Norske Bank and Bank Austria. Other big players became interested in Chaum's creation: Visa, Netscape, ABN Amro Bank, CitiBank and ING Bank. Even Bill Gates tried to embed DigiCash in Windows '95. Unfortunately, these last mentioned players never signed the contracts with Chaum. In the end, in 1998, DigiCash Inc. went bankrupt. People were not attracted to use the system. Chaum's proposal was also above of its times.

The Cypherpunks thought also that the failure of DigiCash Inc. was determined by the fact that it was based on a central authority. The key to success was a totally decentralized form of money.

What I'm trying to say is that eCash was real. And it was used. But it was a centralized form of digital money and maybe that lead, in the end, to its failure. And also the fact that the invention was implemented in the real world ahead of its time. Even now, for example, Bitcoin is not used but too many people all over the world. It;s still hard for some to understand it. Now imagine how hard eCash was back then.



Because hashcash was before bitcoin it doesn't mean that bitcoin was bornt from hashcash. Bitcoin is a creation that took some important accomplishments back in the 90's and implement them to create a digital currency. Satoshi had referenced to bmoney too. It doesn't make bmoney a cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin was something innovative.

It was, indeed. But both HashCash and b-money helped Satoshi to place all things together. But these two weren't the only proposals, there was also another one: Nick Szabo's Bit Gold, which also opened the idea of smart contracts. However, all these 3 proposals of digital money, but also eCash, had various flaws: they were subject of sybil attacks, they were not decentralized or they were never coded.

Bitcoin took the best from all the previous proposals. With other words, we can say that Satoshi learned from the mistakes made by his predecessors and made sure that he won't repeat them. He used HashCash, proof-of-work, 0 central authority, public/private keys and a distributed ledger - which came to be known as the Blockchain (although this term was never used in the Bitcoin white paper). But his innovation was that he used the chain of signatures which link with hash functions every coin (transaction) to its previous owner (author) in an unbroken chain which ends at the generation of the respective coin. Practically, nobody can falsely allege that he owns a coin, as the real owner can sign a message from the transaction which attributed the coin to him, proving that the other one is an imposter. And the importance of this invention can be seen now, many years after Bitcoin was launched, as you know: CSW is trying in vain to steal Satoshi's identity and also to convince people that he owns several of Bitcoin's first addresses -- addresses which are supposed to belong to Satoshi; actually no matter to whom they belong, it is certain they don't belong to CSW as he is unable to sign a message from them. Furthermore, he was ridiculed by the real owner of such address, which signed a message from his address, saying "Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a fraud. He doesn't have the keys used to sign this message.". Furthermore, the recently moved 50 BTC from the address created in 2009 (movement observed also by many forum users) were contained in an address previously mentioned by CSW as belonging to him. The movement of these coins by their real owner proved that he didn't control that address.

This concept, which proves 100% the real owner of a coin, was not present in the previous electronic money proposals.

Excepting all these, Bitcoin also managed to avoid the 51% attacks. As Satoshi had forseen the need for proving the ownership (described above) and many other technological (but also political and ideological issues) which could appear after offering his brilliant invention to the world. He also anticipated that Bitcoin could become the subject of various types of attacks, one of them being the so-called 51% attack.

For those which don't know, a 51% attack represents an attack to the network, the attack being performed by a miner (or a group) having more than 50% of the total hash power of the entire network. In such cases (which in Bitcoin network's case the chances are astronomically low of occurring), the respective miner would have absolute power over the protocol, including but not limited to: stopping other miners from finding new blocks, find all the blocks by himself and obtain all the mining rewards, rewriting the blockchain history, double-spending etc. (more details can be found on Bitcoin Wiki).

Satoshi knew that such attack could occur and implemented two methods for mitigating the risk, as it follows:

1 He detailed an incentive in the white paper meant to keep honesty among the network participants: "The incentive may help encourage nodes to stay honest.  If a greedy attacker is able to assemble more CPU power than all the honest nodes, he would have to choose between using it to defraud people by stealing back his payments, or using it to generate new coins.  He ought to find it more profitable to play by the rules, such rules that favour him with more new coins than everyone else combined, than to undermine the system and the validity of his own wealth.".

Besides, regarding double spending and attacks, the white paper also details the following: "We propose a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer network. The network timestamps transactions by hashing them into an ongoing chain of hash-based proof-of-work, forming a record that cannot be changed without redoing the proof-of-work. The longest chain not only serves as proof of the sequence of events witnessed, but proof that it came from the largest pool of CPU proof-of-worker. As long as a majority of CPU proof-of-worker is controlled by nodes that are not cooperating to attack the network, they'll generate the longest chain and outpace attackers. The network itself requires minimal structure."

2. The second measure was not based anymore on users' honesty, but rather on code: Bitcoin is programmed to make it more difficult the process of finding new blocks as more hash power is brought inside the network. Practically, the more the nodes are, the more difficult the mining process gets. And, as a consequence, as the network expands more and more, it would be way more difficult for an attacker to control more than 50% of the network's hash power*.

Regarding this second solution, laszlo (the pizza guy) alleged in recent CoinTelegraph article that Satoshi told him at some point that he has coded a mining software for GPUs and he was prepared to switch the actual (at that moment, of course) CPU miner to the GPU software, if he really had to defend the network. Of course, the defense would mean to raise exponentially the difficulty, as the GPUs have much more computing power than the CPUs. Laszlo, which according to his topic from May 2010 might have been the first developer (excepting Satoshi) of such mining software for GPUs, could have said the truth or could have lied in the interview. But what's certain is that Satoshi had two ways for avoiding these attacks in Bitcoin network, this being an aspect where Bit Gold and b-money were vulnerable.

Bitcoin is often described as the 'first cryptocurrency' in media, but I vaguely remember there was some history before Satoshi's (amazing) implementation.

I remember hashcash (not a currency) which was used to prevent spam way before Bitcoin, and Bitcoin uses its idea.

What were the other attempts at cryptocurrencies or precursors before Bitcoin?

You can find here a very long and detailed essay of mine, describing all Bitcoin's ancestors: Bitcoin: The dream of Cypherpunks, libertarians and crypto-anarchists. On the second page of posts you can also find a comparison made by me for Bitcoin and all of its ancestors. It was "hand made" to say so, but I think the article can help you understand better all you asked for.

Yeah there will be lot of spams as well created especially this is off topic section but if you wanted to do and have time for it then can have moderated thread but it may consume lot of time so just decide which you wanted to do.

Uhm yes...moderated topics for each genre would work but indeed it would be time consuming... I'd better ask also the fellows from the Moviemaniacs Gang to see their opinion too. Maybe if more would be interested, this could be done. But with heavy moderation and much time spent. Another idea would be this: to set a rule in the "Share Good Movies Please?" topic, thus each post would contain the movie genre (taken from imdb) and the imdb link.

Does this sound better? It would involve managing just 1 topic and much less time. Indeed that topic isn't moderated, but OP and others (such as me) should report all posts not respecting the rule.

Thinking again at the two ideas, I think the lattest is best.

Nice and long list, I was looking for some movie recommendation to kill my time for this weekend and here you helped a lot, I will look into the list and watch one or two out of it by tonight.

You are very welcome. I hope you'll enjoy any of the movies I suggested. I liked them all. By the way: if you are looking also for comedy movies, I recommended today some which I liked a lot.

Should we need to compile separate lists for other genres as well? Grin

That would be interesting, but I'm afraid it would lead to a lot of spam made by various shitposters. If you'll look through the earlier posts of this topic, you'll notice easily there were many posts made by spammers to increase their posts number.

Better head to the topic I suggested above - Share Good Movies Please?. You'll find there many suggestions. For exanple, I recommended there almost 1500 movies, about 100 movies which are not released yet (including one which will be released in November 2115 - not kidding) and about 40 TV series.

Oh, as a bonus, we also created a gang: The Moviemaniacs Gang! Feel free to join!

It would be nice for hacker1001101001 to post in the thread that exposed him as a serial compulsive liar but he is avoiding it: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5213922.0

 Grin By the way your posts to him really made him run off for a short while at least: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5213922.msg54931249#msg54931249

Loool so it was me scaring him in the end? = ))) I thought all the time it was you and marlboroza. Poor hacker1001101001, he is so shy like an innocent young girl. And so many people from this forum (including me) are mean to him! This is just not right!

I suggest that mods to bun me, you and marlboroza! Maybe, after that, the shy, innocent and pure hacker1001101001 will have a peaceful life here...

But suppose you delete all posts, does the activity then decrease and you mutate back into a newbie?

Yes, this is correct. If you delete your posts manually, one by one, your activity will decrease as well. It can decrease even lower than Newbie: it can decrease to Brand New rank. The same applies for nuking action.

Then theoretically he should have been a Senior Member in the time back...

That's correct, he was Sr. Member before deleting the posts.

I have actually never seen that before... Huh Huh

Look at this topic for another example. I reported so many posts of OP that she turned from member to Newbie rank. Later, she posted againg and became again Jr. Member.

Apart from that, for the member, these are the 250 start merits, because he already had his account before the introduction of meritsystem.
Means he has no self-deserved merit...

Yes, no self earned merit in this case.



Edit: for some reason, this post of mine was posted twice. I'll come back in 24h to delete it, as I see that I am unable to do so right now.

When adding it to an old PC? AFAIK:

~snip~

I understand now what you meant, you were talking for older motherboards and yes, all that you said is correct in this case. I wasn't talking about that old, but a bit more recent ones.

Date when the standard was released =/= date when motherboard manufacturers started adapting all (or even the majority) of their boards for it.

Yes, that's correct.

Knowing how many write / read cycles you're limited to is much better than having an ever shifting hidden pseudo-counter that wipes your data when it reaches number X. When you know how close your SSD is to dying, you know when you have to replace it with a new one. With an HDD, it's a perpetual data loss lottery. Obviously, SSDs aren't impervious to random breakage but at least you can measure and monitor one potential point of failure.

That's why I said earlier that this point is debatable Smiley Some see from your point of view, some from mine. I guess it's a matter of perception, like seeing a glass half full of half empty.



Excepting all these, I'd like to mention also that I enjoy a lot seeing that there are users with technical expertise on PC hardware on the forum. I didn't see too many though, but it's great there are still some left and you can engage with them in such serious discussions.

It isn't always true that you save money by building your own.

That's correct, but some -- which are more into computers (not necessary tech savvy) -- may prefer to build the machine by themselves. You know, in modding, for example, there is a saying: 'the normal user says "why change it (in this case it's about the PC's case) if it works like this?", while a modder says "why not change it if I'm able to change it?"'. I believe this can also apply to building a computer piece by piece instead of buying it built by a shop.

IMO NVMe SSDs are overkill for any sort of casual use.

Why do you think they are overkill?

Unless your motherboard has free slots for it (and if you're already considering rebuilding / substantially upgrading your PC, it might not)

Well, that could be a problem for some old motherboards. That is, if you were talking about free PCI Express slots. Regarding M.2 slots, these are always free, unless you already have a SSD plugged into the M.2. And these ports were launched in 2012. What I'm trying to say is that many recent motherboards are equipped with such slot for a SSD. And you can use it for both NVMe SSDs and SATA III SSDs (although SATA III SSDs with M.2 form factor are rare).

As for the SSDs' limited lifetime, well, HDDs aren't immortal either. Take my research with a grain of salt but AFAIK consumer HDDs and SSDs seem to have a similar lifespan (given both the SSD and HDD models are of similar quality).

Uhm... that's debatable. I mean yes, HDDs are not immortal. I was talking about the lifespan now. I guess you can say both that the allegation is true and not true, depending from which point of view you say it. In my case, knowing for sure that my SSD has XXX writing cycles (although this number is the order of thousands) scares me in part. Because I know that when that number is reached, the SSD is gone. Each of its cells was (re)written that XXX number of times and all are dead now. On the other hand, HDDs are more sensible as they having moving parts inside them. You have to be careful when you transport them, try to avoid shocks and so on, indeed. And if you give them a bad treatment they're gone too. I understand that. But at least I know I'm not limited from the very beginning of using it to a fixed number of writing cycles.

So, regarding that, I'd say (as an old rabbi, lol) that I assume we are both right.

A good SSD is one which has NVME technology (Non Volatile Memory Express), which uses the speed of your PCI Express. There are two types: M2 format factor and those which plug directly into a PCI Express slot. The lattest reach speeds of at least 2 GB/s for both reading and writing.

There are also other SSDs which use the SATA III's speed, but these ones are way slower. SATA III supports a maximum speed of 600 MB/s but most of SATA III SSDs will reach a 450-500 MB/s speed for reading/writing (the writing speed is always lower than reading speed).

That being said, not all SSDs are a "must have". Indeed, even a SATA III SSD can revive an old PC, but if you really want to feel the benefits of a good SSD, you should buy a NVME SSD.

excepting this, HDDs should not be fully excluded from PCs. They are cheap now, even large ones (4-6 TB), as the price per GB dropped to a few cents, and they are a good way for storing your rarely used data (photos, old movies etc.). There is no difference in watching a photo/movie stored on the HDD compared with doing the same operation with such file stored on a SSD.

The problem with SSDs is that they have a limited life time. They can be fully filled with data for a certain number of cycles. That's why you should avoid over-using a SSD. Use a HDD each time when it's not necessary to use the SSD. Indeed, the OS should be placed on SSDs. And so too should the games. But avoid using the SSD for movies, photos, audio files or other archived files used rarely, in order to extend its life.

Also, for the same reason, a SSD should never be defragmented. There is no need to, as it is very fast. But also, when you defragment a disk, it moves your data in order to better arrange it. Doing that on a SSD implies that the defragment program will erase some data placed on a specific part of the drive in order to move it somewhere else, thus all data will be arranged. But this operation would also lower the (limited) writing cycles of the SSD.
