2  Other / MultiBit / Transactions to multiple-addresses show the wrong recieving address on: October 08, 2014, 08:11:39 AM
I noticed when there are transactions mades that includes several addresses in your wallet as the reciver MultiBit will put them all as Received with one of my addresses.

so say there is a transaction that has output like

to address1 0.2
to address2 0.3
to address3 0.4

It will show up as
0.2 received with address1
0.3 received with address1
0.4 received with address1

No, either or. You don't have to run the backpane at all, its probably easier just to wire the blades directly.

It works with power in booth ends. How is it harmful? It might be worth it compared to building something else to make them stand...

Unfortunately I only got the green 4-pin adapters for 2 of the blades or I would run then without power in the backplane yes.

Ok nevermind again, I think the problem is drawing two much power on 2 PCI-e outlets in the PSU. (They have 2 connectors each) I used a third PCI-e module and now it can power everything with backplane only.

Thank you for the guide and the help.
Now all that remains is to get the PSU to run without a MB. But in worst case I will just go find a old MB in the garbage room and jumper the power on it I guess ...


I did contact the manufacturer of the PSU. They refuse to give support on "inappropriate use" of the PSU of course but they did hint something about not starting if there isn't a "realistic" load on the PSU. I think this PSU is just to expensive to be fooled by only having a load on the 12V slots?

My be quiet! Dark Power Pro P10 630W will not start with the paper clip installed and a couple of fans installed. Or with paper clip fans and a blade.

Any ideas? I am sure it is connected green to black on the 20+4 pin.
I connected it to an ancient MB and it worked. But not with the paperclip only.

EDIT: Ok for the moment I solved it by just putting 10 year old computer with everything disconnected from the MB and the 20+4 pin from the PSU into there.

I have 4 PCI-e connectior into the backboars which didn't work running 6 blades but it did work with 5. I did put to of the supplied molex 4-pin adapters into 2 of the blades and on there own harddrive 4-pin from the PSU. This seems to be working now. Is it ok to have the power connected on top of the blade while they are also in the powered backplane?
5  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Guide] Dogie's Comprehensive ASICMiner Blade Setup on: May 08, 2014, 03:32:48 PM
Ok thanks and sorry for another question, I just got a hold a PSU but it only has one 6pin PCI-e connector.

It does have 4x6+2-pin PCI-e and 2x4-Pin 12V one 8-pin 12V and 7 Molex connectors.

Can I mix this up without problem into the backplane as long as all wires going in are 12V?

EDIT: or maybe I just use the 6+2 pins as 6 pins and ignore the +2 connector (they appear to be only 2 extra grounds anyway).
Sorry not actually seen it yet and not handled these new fancy connectors Smiley
6  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Guide] Dogie's Comprehensive ASICMiner Blade Setup on: May 08, 2014, 08:00:16 AM
Aha, so I put 2x12V cables per screw in the backplane? And the spare grounds from the connectors I use is there any reason not to just screw them in there also?

Thank you very much for the help.
7  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Guide] Dogie's Comprehensive ASICMiner Blade Setup on: May 08, 2014, 01:28:08 AM
So I want to power my backplane with 6 blades on with a ATX power supply because the server PSU is very much too noisy.

Is there some guide with pictures what exactly to extend and cut and scew into the backplane? And how many wires I need for 6 blades?  Because I am sorry but this guide didn't really make me any wiser on which wires to connect...

Best I can figure is something like putting one yellow wire from PCI-e into each of the 4 screws where is says 12V and one black wire in each screw where it says GRN.
This will probably burn everything up though so I need some more input please.

How much space does plausible deniability add?
Like if you have one key that decrypts it to a naughty sex letter and another to the bitcoin key...

Shall we stop worrying about this problem now?

But it can happen, so it will happen!
At least so my physics teacher told me in the introduction to quantum mechanics.  Wink

Copy paste the paper into PGP/GPG. Encrypt. Print it and the private key ... use a really complicated pass-phrase you also have to write down to be able to remember or it will be too easy to use the copy of your private key? Store in 3 places .... ehh

Doesn't it really come down to security by obscurity no matter how you do if you want to keep it all analogue?
11  Bitcoin / Armory / Armory sync stuck at 99% on: September 17, 2013, 12:13:45 AM
99% and 0 blocks and it appears to be doing nothing...

Restarting or even downloading the whole blockchain again didn't help, it just downloads to 99% again.

Have it running bitcoind with this conf file:


It has plenty connections established judging from the TOR network map and it downloaded 11,5GB again so connectivity should not be issue.

I might have opened Bitcoin-Qt for a few minutes while it was syncing in early stage, no problem then though. But it is from a different directory with diff data dir and diff port etc. Never had problems before running booth ... except one sometimes stalled and had to be restarted if booth where syncing.

Didn't change anything since it started doing this when I tried to get the last few weeks of blockdata a few days ago.

Windows 7 and 88.1

Temperatures are fine there is almost no load on the cpu from bitcoin and very little disk and network usage also.
Windows was just installed, that is why the bitcoin is gone. C++ and .NET are up to date

With a clean wallet file I don't get bitcoin crashing when chainging addresses and the likes. But I think I already tried it and the download was no different. I will try it again....

But I still need to use my old wallet file because will not import all of the bitcoins from that wallet file...
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Bitcoin-qt inital start problems on: January 27, 2013, 10:20:22 AM
Nothing overclocked and cables seems ok.
I am not having any bluescreens or any other problems with the computer now and it is stable for months without reboot ... so the hardware should be ok.

The db.log is like this

PANIC: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
wallet.dat: unable to flush page: 91
txn_checkpoint: failed to flush the buffer cache: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery
then now 300mb of that last line...

the only errors i can find in debug looks something like this and it is full of them:
ERROR: FetchInputs() : 0cd82b8737 mempool Tx prev not found 848af2646b
stored orphan tx 0cd82b8737 (mapsz 10001)
mapOrphan overflow, removed 1 tx

also when I clean the datadir I can no longer use the wallet.dat because it says it is corrupted and have to restore the backup from before I replaced the SSD.

Bitcoin-qt.exe is also crashing with unexpected runtime error when I do stuff like try to add or rename addresses or change the wallet password.

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Bitcoin-qt inital start problems on: January 27, 2013, 02:12:05 AM
I have been trying to get the blockchain in various ways for about 2 weeks or something now.

There are various problems. After 6 hours or so bitcoin-qt.exe is up to using over 2 gb of ram and then it crashes.

The db.log file becomes huge, at one point it was over 3GB.

The blockchain files are basically not growing at all, just the first few minutes after lauching the client it will take of then pretty much nothing happens for a very long while. I have plenty of connections and such and not done anything special with the installation on Windows 7.

I tried decrypting my SSD and running bitcoin it without any modifications on a unencrypted SSD with 1Gbit internet connection for a few days and it was just as slow and stalling just as much. It is the latest version of the client.

On my laptop running Ubuntu I managed to get the whole thing downloaded in 3-4 days. I tried moving those files and do -loadbock with them. I ended up with a blk0001 of about 200meg, it didnt import the rest from those working blockchain files.

Any ideas? Any more info that might be helpfull?
15  Bitcoin / Pools / p2pool - Decentralized, Absolutely DoS-Proof, Pool Hopping-Proof Pool [archival] on: January 19, 2012, 06:20:24 AM
I am using this for litecoin and just updated it to newer version it doesn't seem to want to connect.

start /MIN run_p2pool.exe urs pwd --net litecoin -a litecoinaddr --p2pool-port 9332 -w 9334
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitcoin\Litecoin\litecoin-windows-miner-10-10-2011
start /MIN /LOW /AFFINITY E minerd.exe --algo scrypt --s 6 --threads 2 --retries -1 --url --userpass urs:pwd

It starts up without errors. Goes to have 1000/1000 blocks and after like 10 minutes it starts saying lost connection to bitcoind for 60 seconds. Miner is giving me p2ppool not connected to any peers.

It worked fine in the older version just before so this is puzzling.

How about a client with it's own wallet but no block chain and I set one node only which would be my own full client. Would something like this work? Would be great for people with a bunch of laptops or whatnot...

How much is an International Wire transfer at a Bank? $30 to $40 Usually.

It is free to send and free to receive at my bank and many others here. I haven't run into any intermediary fees even when sending funds outside Europe this far either. So international wire deposit charges are really a bummer...

Hi Rahl,

We did receive your email and our reply seems to have bounced, we've tried again just now (also, do you have a different email we could try?). The Live Support link at the top is working for most people but I am sorry it didn't work for you. We do have operators available there at almost all hours.

We'll get the Litecoin sorted for you.

Also, we don't want to upset anyone with a Mises avatar =)

-Crypto X Change

Thanks. Yeah, Chrome seems to be the reason live support isn't loading. I am just a bit itchy after having run into a stream of other companies with there fancy live supports and never any operators online...
It is just a small amount of LTC and it hasn't even been a day so I am sure you will sort it out.
19  Economy / Marketplace / Re: [ANN] Crypto X Change Now OPEN on: November 23, 2011, 02:29:42 AM
My Litecoin is not arriving.
Live Support not working.
No e-mail response for almost 9 hours in the middle of your business day.

Now all of this would be quite acceptable, if you didn't have services like live support and phone numbers all over the world giving the impression of 24/7 instant support...

I never understood this either. I don't even pay any utility bills, just my rent so is a bit difficult.

Phones and stuff is easy enough to register on any address and just forward. How can they demand 2 utility bills anyway? Even if you own a house most people only pay one utility bill you would actually need to forge to not show the address of a property you own and it is electricity. Plenty of houses even close to cities have there own water wells and stuff .... I don't get it. Don't you really have any better proof of residency documentation in the states then this?
