1  Bitcoin / Project Development / ThunderMaps-Coinmap: Recieve alerts when new Bitcoin merchants pop up near you on: February 06, 2014, 09:50:59 PM
Coinmap.org is super useful for monitoring Bitcoin's growth but it's kinda tedious having to constantly check it to see what's new... So I wrote a simple script which periodically checks Coinmap for newly added merchants and then sends them to http://www.thundermaps.com.

With ThunderMaps you can set an "alert area" and receive email/push alerts when new things pop up in that area. So you could create an area which covers your city or neighborhood, and then you'd always know when a new business accepts Bitcoin near you.

You can access it here: http://www.thundermaps.com/accounts/coinmap

To make a new alert area you click "listen to an area" and then just drag to set the geofence around the area you want to listen to.

At the moment the map only has merchants added since around a week ago so it's not really meant to be used as reference map like CoinMap is, just as a way of keeping up to date with the latest additions. Suggestions/feedback welcome.

It doesn't seem that bad. He mentions exchanges other than Tradehill and you don't HAVE to click his link. Actually I think it could be quite informative to traders who don't follow the forums or know of any other exchanges.

So sending 60,000 emails using a stolen database is okay, because we didn't HAVE to click the link in it? That's insane, even coming from a guy named "pancakes". Just because I hate you now, I'm eating your namesake for breakfast tomorrow. I hope their fluffy, syrupy demise transmits some telepathic pain to you. Man, I'm telling you, I can eat a lot of pancakes, so prepare for my wrath.

By the way, guy-who-did-this-if-you-are-reading-this, that counts as a felony if you happened to send emails to people in certain states, like Virginia. Hopefully tradehill has some good records of you.

I suppose your right. I guess I just got excited when I saw I had an email. It seemed like he almost cared about me Sad

Also, I am a great believer in the ingestion of pancakes even if it is for the sole purpose of inflicting pain. May the syrup be bountiful and may your arteries stay strong throughout the fatty onslaught. Admittedly I don't think you will be able to transmit pain to me by eating pancakes but if I am pained tomorrow morning then you are a wizard and have earned my respect.

If you own an exchange and would like to be safer, for a small fee (in the 5 figures)...

for a small fee, and the promise of not being persecuted...

The problem with this community is it's full of people trying to make money.

This is the email I received. Only one.

Quote
Dear Sir or Madam,


A few hours ago the Bitcoin trading website Mt Gox has been hacked. Malicious individuals have been able to obtain a database containing usernames, email address and encrypted passwords. This information has been posted publicly on the internet.

As a Bitcoin supporter I'm now sending a message to every email address contained in the hacked database. This is to warn you that your username, email address and password have been leaked. I therefore strongly advice you to change your passwords. If you have used the same password on different websites it's highly recommended to change your password on all of your accounts!

For a more secure alternative to Mt Gox, the community appears to be moving to TradeHill. So this is no reason to lose faith in Bitcoin itself. It must be seen as a warning that not every website can be trusted with your data however! Their link is http://www.tradehill.com/?r=TH-R15683 (Note: You can remove the Referral Code when registering if you want!) This is certainly not the only website where you can exchange Bitcoins, also check out http://www.thebitcoinlist.com/dp_bitcoin/bitcoin-exchange/


Sincerely,

It doesn't seem that bad. He mentions exchanges other than Tradehill and you don't HAVE to click his link. Actually I think it could be quite informative to traders who don't follow the forums or know of any other exchanges.

Just a warning to everyone to not use MtGox. Sigh, I knew I should have stuck with BitcoinExchange.

What should I tell them? I mean I swear it was stolen from me. What can they do?

Everyone? There are far more traders not getting BTC stolen than traders claiming they have had BTC stolen. This sort of thing happens everywhere. Furthermore your title is sensationalist (MtGox clearly didn't scam you, you probably scammed yourself by having a shitty password) which leads me to believe you are lying in order to try get some sort of compensation.

Sorry if your BTC really did get stolen. That sucks. But what were you doing with 17BTC in your MtGox account anyway? Surely you've read all the reports from people claiming to have their accounts compromised.

To some this is probably a list of the next targets.

It's really pathetic that people would DDOS a mining pool...

Keep up the good work Slush.

Yup. Issues here too Sad

Believe it or not some Bitcoin traders have the ability to think for themselves and ignore what some forum troll has to say. Besides, most traders probably don't follow these forums at all, and I bet a significant portion aren't even aware they exist.

You're posting H/s rates, but no info about how many blocks the pool solved, even in a pool there is luck involved...

I thought with a score based system like that it was supposed to be pretty regular with little variance?

You can mine with it, but your best bet might be to sell it and buy a 5830.

Ok so Nvidia's aren't very good for mining? And is CUDA the only option for Nvidia users? Thanks.

Have a look at this chart https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

You'd be pushing 10mh/s with that card. At that rate it would take over a month to generate one BTC.

It's kinda funny. I've noticed that since the limit has been implemented the quality of my posts has decreased substantially and the frequency of said posts has increased. This can't be a good thing for the quality of the community.
15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Did you hear about this? on: June 12, 2011, 06:12:07 AM
It was posted on some chan somewhere so I doubt it's legit. You'd definitely wake up before you were able to get brain damaged, unless you were passed out drunk or some shit.

Over the course of today my total balance seems to have only gone up about 0.10 coins.

This is far less than usual. I usually get around 0.60 per day mining at 300mh/s.

Anyone else experiencing this?

did you check the stats to see if the pool had some really long valid block solves versus the day before?
as in a string of them.

also checking the mining forum and slush's thread may be in order.

There were a few hour and a half ones but certainly not a string of them...

Seems to be some other people reporting less profits in Slush's thread. I normally get slightly over 1 BTC every 2 days and it looks like it'll be almost an extra day before I get my 1 BTC this time.

Frankly, I think this sucks ass. I've been on this forum for quite a while but only occasionally post, so now I'm being put in the kiddie pen.  I'm sorry moderators that you're having problems with spammers, but maybe there's another way?  I run the digital coin forum http://digitalcoin.earthsociety.org - also an SMF forum and I've put in a script to halt forum spammer-bots that's fairly effective, albeit, my forum has very little traffic and perhaps spam-bots put more effort into popular forums - I don't know.

Still this is rather like banning the freedom of speech because of terrorists - the terrorists win.

Bear in mind that this is a temporary measure put in place to halt the spam happening right now. It will be fine tuned over the next few days.

Oh. Ok.
20  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Newbie restrictions (Please discuss forum policy here.) on: June 12, 2011, 04:17:20 AM
Isn't 50 posts a little excessive?  So basically this newbies forum is going to be just a large group of people who are new to this bullshitting each other until they can actually go and ask people who know what they are talking about once they reach 50 posts?  

I agree. Potential trolls will just troll here until they have enough posts to troll everywhere else.
