1  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: 4th 5830 not detecting - Biostar 890FX on: June 11, 2011, 08:20:09 PM
Yes, one slot, but the thing is, that slot only doesn't work IF all 4 cards are plugged in, otherwise that single slot will work fine.
2  Bitcoin / Mining / 4th 5830 not detecting - Biostar 890FX on: June 11, 2011, 12:42:28 PM
I have two rigs, each with the same setup.
4 cards detect on one
Only 3 cards detect in the other
Naturally you'd think the failure point was the card itself, but I've individually tested all of the cards, including that one.
It's fine.

Could this be an issue with the motherboard? Or could it be the PSU?
Hard to imagine the PSU being able to pump enough juice for 3 cards, but not a 4th... Especially when I have the exact same PSU in my other setup.

just wanted to bump this once
as it's getting stale
I like how it's almost split 50/50
4  Bitcoin / Mining / BFI_INT What does it really do? on: June 09, 2011, 12:02:23 AM
How much does this improve your efficiency?
The people who use BFI_INT get the same numbers I do, and I don't use it.
Is it just a gimmick?
5  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Post your hash rate, mining pool & daily generated BTC on: June 08, 2011, 03:38:31 PM
- Hash rate (mhashes/s)
- Mining pool you're using
- Net BTC generated per day on average.


1. Undisclosed
2. BTCGuild
3. More than 1, less than 20.

what kind of performance increase does BFI_INT really give?

Somewhat offtopic: Why do people keep quoting my own math back to me in responses to me? If I said he makes a million a year, you don't need to prove to me that he makes a million a year.

Dude you don't understand, the point is, you did the math wrong.

Elephants * bananas + apples = Monkeys
Barracudas + Battlefield 3 - Dinosaurs = Humans

You take Humans/Monkeys = Rise of the Apes (Planet of the Apes Prequel)

Then you add Jeff Goldblum
And you take the negative Rotten Tomatoes score and add Macaroni and Cheese and a tub of ice cream.

After you vomit and cry yourself to sleep that night, you wake up and remember
Tycho is making bazillions in Chinese Yuan off of Deepbit.
That is all.

This "authority" can just connect to some different points of network and log the blocks.
When the majority of the network is reporting one set of blocks as being accurate, and the minority is reporting a different set as accurate...

Wouldn't the authority automatically assume the majority?...
Looks like you don't get the idea.
That's the whole point of the service - to detect presence of the other set.

Detection is not a solution.

Prevention is.

Think of it like AIDS
By the time you 'detect' it
It's DEFINITELY too late.

Wow, Tycho, I must say, that post makes you look like a politician...
And we all know how they LOVE telling the truth.
10  Bitcoin / Mining / If you were Tycho, would YOU fork it? on: June 08, 2011, 07:00:06 AM
Would you rig the network with deepbit, if you were the pool operator?
11  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: 50% on: June 08, 2011, 06:53:29 AM
You know what else has already happened too? Tycho has been hacked. That's why he instituted email locks on accounts, because a hacker got into his system and changed peoples addresses. Hacked once...
Please, don't tell about what you don't know.
Most (~14) victims of that attack were using same passwords on deepbit and another pool that got hacked, that's how the attacker got them. Also they were using same passwords for mining and main account.
Hey [Tycho] what's the [Bounty] on the Block Chain Monitor?
As it says in the forum thread, my part and those two who added their messages.
It's just a strawman, and Tycho knows it.
There is no technical way to find orphaned block chains without everyone running bitcoind to update their software to a specific version that would report orphaned blocks to a central authority.  And the authority would need to be agreed upon.  The client, as it stands, simply abandons them.
This "authority" can just connect to some different points of network and log the blocks.

When the majority of the network is reporting one set of blocks as being accurate, and the minority is reporting a different set as accurate...

Wouldn't the authority automatically assume the majority?...
:|
Or let's say, they always assume the smaller portion of the network was correct...
THAT WOULD MAKE A FORK IN THE BLOCK CHAIN EVEN EASIER TO DO.

Your logging at different points in the network idea is not sound.
12  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: HERE IS ANOTHER IMPORTANT THREAD TELLING YOU NOT TO MINE WITH DEEPBIT on: June 08, 2011, 06:50:56 AM
children, seriously, you are spamming up the forum with your naive blathering. if tycho tries anything fishy with his pool, it will instantly dissolve like a tab of acid on the tongue as the people in his pool flee. tycho is making 3% off of his 50% share of the network. that means hes personally getting 1.5% of all the bitcoins generated right now. you think he would risk that to fake some piddly 50 bitcoin blocks? the people that post these threads are so very profoundly stupid.

Prove it.

Let's say hypothetically tycho forks the block chain about 1000 times, and blocks all the other pools from getting any confirmations of blocks. 5000 people who never read the forums or watch the block chain or know anything other than "my stats are goin up at a fantastic rate!" are going to stop mining on deepbit because...?

Your post sounds the most profoundly stupid to me.

1) what would tycho gain from forking the block chain 1000 times? hes making more money by not doing that.
2) if these hypothetical people don't read the forums, how did they learn about tycho's pool to begin with?

the unsuccessful always try to punish the successful
Imagine if you will, that HP came out with a new printer that could print authentic $USD bills.

Do you think that there would be some deflation of the currency as noone would be able to tell if a $20 was authentic or not?  Do you think anyone in their right mind would invest in a set amount of the currency when it had no way of being empricially verified to be true anymore?

It hurts everyone who uses bitcoin to have someone who is egrigiously violating the spirit of bitcoin's distributed nature.

Dude, HP releaed that printer model like 3 years ago...
Where have you been?

>Implying Tycho is the issue

If the pool at that size exists, it doesn't have to be Tycho.
Anyone who potentially could gain control of the pool.
AKA anyone who would either hijack, or hack deepbit.
By either cunning network skills, or by just figuring out who/where Tycho is, and jacking him in person.

and either way, his pool would instantly dissolve.

It would have to be proven that the chain was forked first, and if that pool is the network majority...
It might take longer than you realize.
Define "instantly"

so many silly newbies hating on tycho. deepbit is the best pool. that's all there is to it. if you don't like his share of the network, make a pool that's better then his. none of these complainers will though. some people take action and some just bitch. I cant wait for the bitcoin network to shake off the naive kids as the business oriented move in.

>herp derp I make comments that make me look like an ass while I talk down about everyone with legitimate security concerns.
>herp derp buddha is in my name and my profile pic but i don't act like a buddhist in the slightest

Wow what are you 12?

[Tycho], any chance you will lower your hashing rate?
Or even better, make your fee go up as hashing rate increases, so we reach a nice equilibrium?
It's not like my hashing rate is rising, it's network block generation speed is low today which causes pie chart to look more scary than usual.

Create a good pool, make a better offer to bitcoin miners and they may switch. That's how competition works.
It's easy to make a pool with lower fee, there is even an open source pool software available. And that's not the only option.
Why not create more ? There will be a LOT of new miners soon.

Don't make me say my opinion on bitcoin security for the fourth time Smiley

Step 1: Find Tycho's house
Step 2: Incapacitate
Step 3: Create fake block chain
Step 4: False transactions
Step 5: Rich
Step 6: Collapse of Bitcoin forever

And nothing of value was lost.

What is the point of making threads like this?

I'm a sad lonely virgin and I have no prospects for a girlfriend.

Please love me.


Mom and dad aren't home...
Maybe...
I could be your girlfriend tonight.  Kiss

I really hope the deepbit server itself has very high security.
If someone gained unauthorized remote access...
Well, let's say our trust in Tycho would not be the issue.
