541  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Re: DiabloMiner GPU Miner (LP, BFI_INT, async nw, multipool, 79xx GCN) on: September 26, 2012, 03:15:51 PM
Hey folks, need a little help here.
I'm running Diablo on my 7970 and it's been working great, up until recently.
For background, my card is water cooled, and runs at 1187/850, yielding about 715mH/s on average. It's been super stable, until...
About a week ago, my miner suddenly stopped. I tried restarting it, but it just crashed every time.
I then noticed that Afterburner and GPU-Z were no longer reporting the clocks, they both just said 0.0000.
At this point, I spent several hours trying to reinstall my GPU drivers, which was a nightmare in itself.
I was FINALLY able to get the AMD drivers installed by stripping the old drivers out, sweeping the remnants with Driver Sweeper, and reinstalling the Beta 12.9 drivers.
I tried unstalling 12.8 WHQL, but they wouldn't run any of my miners, just kept giving errors.
At this point, I can mine, but Diablo crashes much more frequently than before. The big problem is that when it does crash, I can't restart it.
When I try, it says something about "no OpenCL devices found". I have to actually reboot the system, at which point it will go back to mining, for a while.
Not sure where to go with this, but it's getting awfully frustrating and is costing me money in lost revenue.
Anyone got any ideas where to start?
Thanks in advance,
Elmojo

Wow, I wonder if your VRMs are overheating. My 7970 sometimes overheats to the point that the machine hangs on boot at 1125 on really hot days, so maybe thats what happened with you.

All right, Diablo, you remain the CEO. Do you have a plan going forward?

Yes, but right now we have an entirely different problem to deal with. Dunno if anyone thats subscribed to the DMC thread reads the rest of the Securities forum, but nefario not only has failed to unlock my account so I can run DMC, but hes also chased goat off GLBSE and is threatening the same to other assets.

The control of GLBSE needs to be turned over to an impartial board that treats asset issuers fairly, and until this happens I'm not sure exactly what I can do in the short term. I'm still going to fight for DMC however I can, but as I see it, nefario has hostages: my shareholders.

Ah ok... i read at wikipedia what lithography mask means and it seems its similar to etching a platine. I can imagine that the work on it takes a while. But i can imagine that some more man at it could speed the work up. The etching itself probably is faster or is it a very slow process because of the miniatue so to not break anything in process?

Etching isn't done by hand. This is an entirely automated process. Features on these chips are thinner than a human hair. Its _kind of_ similar to etching a plate, but its really difficult. Its not as slow as you think once the wafers are actually being processed, its the whole lead up to that part of the process that takes time.

From the end of tape out to slapping the chips on circuit boards is about a 3 month process for most people on small runs on large node sizes (>=65nm) depending on the fab. As long as friedcat gets these all done before the Chinese New Year, we're fine.
544  Economy / Securities / Re: [GLBSE] ASICMINER: Entering the Future of ASIC Mining by Inventing It on: September 25, 2012, 01:16:09 PM
Care to elaborate what things eat this time? I mean every production step i can imagine wouldnt take long. But im not a pro in this area. Such a timeframe sounds like the chips has to grow naturally... Smiley
Or is it only because of the amount of chips?

The hardest step once you have the design finished is "tape out", where they produce the lithography mask for chip production. This takes awhile and must be triple checked by both friedcat's people and the fab. Then, he has to wait about a month for his slot in the queue at the fab to come up, then the fab produces the chips and then (optionally) shoves them in a package (the metal or plastic thing with pins sticking out that you call a chip; the actual circuit is inside of that).

The GLBSE software does not produce a complete csv

That is just a self-protecting false claim.
Please show any proof.

Now you're just trolling.

Nothing stopping you from handing the csv to smickles and one other community member, and having them done independent of the glbse to straighten everything out.

The GLBSE software does not produce a complete csv, and nefario has yet to unlock my account. I asked nefario to ask smickles to be one of the three auditors, but he didn't do so.

I'll probably ask smickles to do it someday, but not now. I just want my account back before nefario costs us even more dividends.

These friends overpower the poor fuckers who got robbed for real money.

1) They lost the money because stock market is unpredictable ("Robbing" implies intent)
2) These friends also invested and consequently also lost money - where is the conspiracy
3) Stop spreading FUD

Show me an audit so we can indiscriminately know if there was intent or a conspiracy...
 so far all available evidence shows an incompetent ceo who has intentionally mislead and fought against shareholders.

Until then, spreading FUD does not apply.

nefario backed out on the audit because he couldn't find enough people who knew what they were doing to do it.

47% of your shareholders want to remove you as the CEO.

Your math is extremely faulty.

Motion 127 is now closed.

Voted Yea:4775
Voted Nay:10141

Nefario failed to gain his needed 66% of the votes to pass his motion. I remain CEO.

Looks like 100% of the shareholders who bought your shares on GLSBE boted Yea.
Big surprise that the sockpuppet(s) who you gave 10000+ shares to voted in your favor. For all I know you gave most of them to yourself.

Anyway, will be fun to see your talent at work again. You already burned >99% of shareholder value, lets see if you can burn the rest too. My guess is you can. Only you can.

A sockpuppet claiming I have sockpuppets? Oh the irony.

As mentioned several times in this thread, nefario locked my account... so how could I vote for myself (using all 40 shares of mine) if my account is locked? You make no sense.

I still do not know enough about this to know if Nefario had a right to lock down your account but I understand why shareholders are upset.

Look at the final outcome of motion 127: the shareholders are not and never were upset. This is something nefario did to... do... something. I mean, he claims he wasn't planning on running off with the DMC assets and fuck DMC shareholder; so what was he actually trying to achieve? Whatever it was, it wasn't in the best interest of DMC shareholders or the community at large.


To have that many vote against you is not really good as the people who don't trust you (like me) never bought in.

Also how many times did you vote? How many times did the people you made deals with vote?

Will you post all of your assets or has this been done already?


Trading many of your assets for an asset that no one values was not a smart move IMO. Can you regain trust by showing us you do have assets?



"Times"? People can only vote once, and nefario decided that I wouldn't be allowed to vote even though I am also a shareholder.

All of the assets held have been posted already.

And claiming no one values ABMO is not an accurate statement. ABMO's IPO has not finished yet, thus there is no demand to produce bids.
551  Economy / Securities / Re: [GLBSE] Diablo Mining Company (DMC) [140.1 gh] [6.700 mh/share] on: September 24, 2012, 02:52:53 PM
Well okay, it is nice to know what you did, but are you aware the highest bid for OBSI.ABMO is .01 and the highest bid for Asicminer is well over 10 times or 1000% higher?

How did you double your book value? It looks to me you lost over 80%  ?

This is why even nefario calls you a troll.

Due to GLBSE's habitual lack of good (or sometimes any) bids across almost every asset, people use asks instead of bids to measure book value.

That doesnt make it right though and its a bad habit and seemingly dishonest.

Yeah I was not trolling I was trying to see why Nefario locked down your account. I think something has to be really really wrong for that to be justified.

However faking your books is not really a good thing. Because the bid is not something you like you can't just use an ask.

I can ask for something to be sold for 22Million bitcoin but that is not a fair value... The fair value is the bid.



Except you misunderstood. I use the lowest ask instead of the highest bid. I didn't say what I'm asking for it. The market still sets the price, and until nefario fixes market liquidity, thats the only way to price assets that doesn't involve half the assets on the market being priced at zero.

Why was Asicsminer sold off? Did you not trade a lot of different stuff to get a lot of it?

I traded ASICMINER into OBSI.ABMO for 1:2 ABMO shares which....

1: Provided ABMO with half the ASICMINER shares it has, which....
2: Combined with the trade of OBSI.1MHS, DMC is around 50% of ABMO, and....
3: Obsi also traded his own ASICMINER into ABMO and purchased a few more which is the other half of ABMO's ASICMINER shares, which...
4: Means DMC's half of ABMO is now backed by around the same number of ASICMINER shares it traded into ABMO, which....
5: Means we get paid not only the original ASICMINER dividends we would have had anyhow, ...
6: We get paid dividends now on ABMO's existing ABMO hardware and....
7: Future dividends on BFL SC upgrades are also ours and...
8: ASICMINER at the time was around 0.10, two shares of ABMO at the time were 0.20, thus we doubled the book value of the investment, and...
9: This insulates from the risk of ASICMINER somewhat.

tl;dr: We doubled book value of the asset, added short term profits, possibly doubled long term profits (maybe even tripled), and became nearly majority owner in ABMO.

Today is the 23rd. Time flies.

Everyone who hasn't voted no on the motion, please go do that now.

https://glbse.com/vote/view/127

You have not given any reason to vote No.
So far, there is no audit done in this train wreck. I offered my help (my wife is accountant) but I was told by D3 "No".
I guess he knows how embarrassing the results will be.


I said no because we need accountants that are well known and have good standings in the community, plus have to be agreed on by me, nefario, and the shareholders.

No one knows your wife, and you certainly don't have a good standing in the community that she can borrow.

Seems usagi forgot to inform this thread.

nefario has pushed the date for motion 127 to the 23rd. The original date (18th?) already passed, and he pushed it back to the 23rd in the final hours of the vote. Only nefario knows what the final tally was.

In addition, nefario has been unable to get two other people audit DMC's records, and refuses to name the one person doing it. What I do know, that one person he did get is not smickles, the community's only accountant. Since nefario refuses to name the auditor ahead of time, shareholders do not get to vote on the confirmation

Also, I've spoken with smickles, hes very interested in taking DMC on as his first client with his new accounting firm, although because hes in the middle of moving, the September report on Oct 1st will either be done by him and be late or be done by me for the last time and be on time.

Aus, 240V typically most power cabling is rated 10A = 2400W
Of course no one wants to be near the limit Smiley

Looking at the different replies - it seems that 1500W is probably about as high as any device should go to get general acceptance for everyone.

(aside, the whole advantage of 240V is it's the A that kills you not the V - thus also higher power with lower A)

Most != high current. Here in the US we have "lamp cord" which is just enough to run a lamp or some other low wattage device, and high current devices use lower gauge (== thicker) wiring. I think its 14 AWG for low wattage, 12 AWG for higher current, and 10 AWG for 20amp or 208v or 240v (dryers, ovens, etc), but I might be wrong.

BTW, a lot of devices are using universal IEC 60320 plugs on the device side: C5 and C7 (2.5a, grounded and ungrounded respectively) are common on laptops, DVD players, some LCD monitors, etc; C13 (15a) is the plug thats on computer power supplies, and C19 (20a) is the enterprise high amp version of C13.

1800w is as high as you can go for temporary usage in the US (there are toasters and blenders and electric water kettles this high). Everything else seems to max out at 1400, and you don't see quality computer PSU's above 1200w. 1000-1100w continuous usage/1200w peak, is low enough that you can plug two into a 120v 20a line for rack mounting.
560  Economy / Securities / Re: [GLBSE] ASICMINER: Entering the Future of ASIC Mining by Inventing It on: September 19, 2012, 05:59:44 PM

Euro 230v seems to be 20a sockets the same as the average American home has 120v 15a.

New US homes all have 120v 20a since about the 70s.

I've never seen 20a installed anywhere here in the US unless it was specifically requested... unless everyone has been installing 20a circuits and not installing the 20a plugs with the T shaped blade (NEMA 5-20) to go with them.
