Probably a stupid question, but you're not copying the blockchain while the client is running?  If so, the database will be changing as it's copied, and you will always get corruption.

Whatever happened to that professor in Brazil that trolled this thread for years? Anybody remember his name?

I'm curious if he still has an online profile and twitter account.

Last time I heard from him he made a lengthy negative comment on a pending ETF application when the SEC asked for public feedback.

Stolfi?

He hangs out on the /r/btc subreddit with all the bcash tards. Good place for him to be honest, surrounded with like-minded intellectuals


Apparently he is still lurking around here too - last active about a month ago, according to his profile:

Someone tell me how to make that ghost icon thingie.
https://graphemica.com/%F0%9F%91%BB
(copy-paste it into a text edditor that doesn't have this font and it should show the 1F47B unicode number. Then google that number)
Is there a way to just type it out? For example, ô is made by holding alt and typing 0153 on the numeric keyboard?

This worked for me:

1) Press and hold ALT
2) Type "128123" on numeric keypad
3) Release ALT

Of course, the font in use must contain the 'ghost' character.
That just gets me {. Using whatever is standard for windows, but I could still copypaste the ghost into the address bar like any other text. Weird.

If I try to enter it on this forum, I get the same '{' as you.  It works in Wordpad, etc., and probably lots of other websites and forums, just not here  /shrug

It will definitely trickle down to the real economy, just like it did 2009 - 2019.

During that time they managed to keep a lid on food prices, gas prices, and some services, but literally *everything else* skyrocketed: houses, student loans, new cars, new phones, utilities, phone bills, health insurance, etc. And that was all during a period of global deflation!

You can't have all those things skyrocketing while people's salaries remain stagnant over the same period. That's inflation (actually stagflation) and that's why people feel poorer and poorer over time.

It's going to be even worse over the next decade. MUCH worse.

I'm not sure it did trickle down...

In the same bill where congress approved $800B+ in 'fiscal stimulus', they also approved a measure that allowed the fed to pay interest to banks on excess reserves.  Until this time, banks naturally kept excess reserves as close to zero as possible; however, as soon as they started making money off them, reserves skyrocketed.  In the graph below you can see that shortly after the 'fiscal stimulus', the excess reserves climbed to over $800B almost immediately.  Coincidence?  Maybe  Wink  They continued to climb, and are still very high:

It's funny thinking back to huge posts from long ago.  When I first made a bookmark for the WO, it was on page 673. Now whenever I come on here, it opens on that page, so I'm destined to see Frozenlock's twitching eyebrows forevermore (unless I were to update my bookmark, but where's the fun in that?).  Leads me to ponder whatever happened to folk who were posting back then.  I sometimes wonder what the ratios are for:

Still Around : Bored of WO and signed off : Got Wrecked and signed off : Made Enough to Retire and Disappeared : Suffered Psychosis and Disappeared : Died

Why use a bookmark?  If you just add the thread to your watch list you won't have this issue.

Is it possible that you made  the copy while the clent was running?  I would imagine that if that is the case, the database would be being changed as your copy was taking place, possibly resulting in an inconsistency which would require a resync.

If you are going to make a copy of the blockchain, I think you would need to shut down, then copy.

Just guessing here :-)

When the hell is ETF on TP coming?

Elon should have a shit coin on this. He would clean up in the crypto world! Grin

Meanwhile... somewhere in Western Canada.

Even more of a reason to get in on an ETF of this. Cheesy

Not to put too fine a point on it, but if you donít have medical insurance in the US, the cost of a Coronavirus test is $3,200. 

Poor people who canít afford health insurance arenít going to get tested in the USA. 

According to this: https://www.factcheck.org/2020/03/covid-19-tests-dont-cost-over-3000/ , that is not true.


Also, from https://www.ahip.org/keeping-americans-safe-from-coronavirus-covid-19/

What to Know About Treatment and Coverage

    At this time, the CDC is the only facility equipped to test for COVID 19, or to designate other laboratories to do so. The CDC is not billing for testing for COVID 19, so patients will not incur costs when tested by the CDC.


Ok - according to your link the test is free.  But it costs $3200 to visit a doctor to get the free test. Am I reading that correctly?

The test (as of now) is free.  I am pretty sure $3200 is not representative of what a US citizen typically pays for a doctor visit.

One anecdotal instance of how much someone spent on emergency care really should not be misrepresented as 'the cost of a Coronavirus test [in the US]', especially since it may discourage those who think they may need to be tested from doing so.

Exactly. I always do this, and also use VM to test-drive apps before installing on my main (host) PC. No viruses, no malware, no corruptions, no problems!

Edit: ...and always disable AutoRun after a Windows installation.

Always do ... what? Always attach found USB to a computer running Knoppix from write-only media? Always attach found USB to a computer running a VM? Always attach found USB to a computer running Knoppix from write-only media within a VM? Great.

What protects your BIOS/FW? What protects your hypervisor?

When I want to read a "dangerous" USB stick, I launch my "test VM" in VMware and mount it there. AutoRun is disabled on both the host and the guest OS. Never had any issues in 25 years of Windows computing.

How can mounting a USB stick on an AutoRun-disabled VM affect your host's BIOS? Honest question, I want to know.


The security of USB is fundamentally broken.  See https://www.wired.com/2014/07/usb-security/ for some explanation.

Thank you heslo and somac, Fuck you makrospex.

huh?
WTF?!
We all three said the same: Set it to zero.
 Huh
You didn't spoon feed him and were late with the details  Roll Eyes

Alright, i see...
I typed my reply in a hurry while the other two WOs were posting already.

EDIT: Backread the thread now and it obviously was the step-by-step google selfhelp instructions from me that set him up.
However, that's how the pro's do it  Grin

If you don't want to help that's fine, but in that case, just don't reply.
Using your precious time to mock me for asking instead of using the same time to answer my question is an asshole move in my book.
I know very little about computers and need to bee spoon fed to get it right, I don't know what I'm doing and really don't want to do something wrong. I can't tell if a online tutorial is correct or not, but I do trust the people in here, that's why I ask. If you knew of any good tutorial, why didn't you direct me to it instead of being a dick?
I don't really see people saying "google it" whenever someone asks about something non computer related so I'm assuming that it's just you computer nerds that have that special asshole gene.

How to win friends and influence people by Arriemoller... read above.     Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy



I'm sure maskorpex just wanted to help him, but at that moment he didn't have time.
It also irritates me when someone tells me to look for the solution on YouTube or Google. Wink

He had time to write this.

"OK, here we go:

1. Open google in a browser.
2. type "how to disable superfetch" (omitting the quotes), followed by your windows version
3. hit enter
4. read the first few linked articles and follow the tutorial(s)
5. reboot Grin"


Looks to me like he gave all the info that was necessary, I just highlighted #2 and right clicked search and every link gave a step by step. What more can you want?

Having the keywords (also called tags) is the most important parts of finding something and that is what he gave you.He also went to the effort of telling you how to use those keywords.

I think you are not understanding this.

Teach a man to fish.

No, you don't understand, I didn't ask for directions to a manual, I asked how to do it.
If you ask me how to change tires, I guess you would be pretty irritated if I gave you a lesson on how to google "change tires" instead of just answering your question
If someone doesn't want to answer my question, then just don't answer.


Just for the record, the "Superfetch" service was renamed to "SysMain" in a Windows 10 recent update, so if you are using a fully up-to-date system, you need to disable the "SysMain" service - there is no service named "Superfetch" anymore.

In many countries there is a special movie that people watch around new years, in Sweden it's the 1982 version of Ivanhoe on new years day.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivanhoe_(1982_film)

I just learned that in Russia it's the 1976 Soviet movie "The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!" (Russian: Иpoния cyдьбы, или C лёгким пapoм!)
I would like to watch that movie, but unfortunately I don't speak Russian. Does anybody know where I can stream or download that movie with Swedish or English subtitles?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Irony_of_Fate

And also, Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year To You All!

From where did come this thing of the 3th January bank run? I googled but I can't find much.

I think that many exchangers are running fractional reserve schemes, In 2015 I opened a thread with the title "who controls our bitcoin? We do! BANK RUN!" were I proposed basically the same thing.

How can I support this initiative, besides not storing any coin on exchangers which I already do?
