1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Bitcoin QT causing extremely high ping on: April 05, 2013, 12:42:39 PM
Seems turning off UPnP is working just fine for now, I'll update if anything changes. If that was also the cause of my weekly disconnections and is now fixed I'd be a happy camper! This houses internet was just activated a couple months ago so I figured bad lines. Thinking now, I probably turned on UPnP then while downloading the blocks I've missed the past few months.

Thanks for the help. If I end decide to limit the connections I can look up the command for that easy enough. Any reason why that would be better than turning off UPnP, when that limits to 8 connections anyway?

Well I did open up UPnP so it can have more connections. I thought that was better for the network, but should I remove that option?
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Bitcoin QT causing extremely high ping on: April 05, 2013, 12:15:06 PM
The past few days I was having major lag problems with my internet. Checking my ping, it was over 2000ms almost every test, for hours at a time. I didn't think about it being bitcoin causing this, as the cables in my house probably need replacing real soon and I have intermittent disconnection
issues once or twice a week.

I was getting ready to call Comcast when I tried to turn off bitcoin and see if this was the cause. After doing so my ping fell to a suitable 30 ms and stayed that way.

Why is bitcoin-qt causing so much lag? My internet isn't the BEST but it's average. Bitcoin-qt is not even usable this way.

I do not believe there is any mac installations that are easy to do.

"There are no official releases of Armory for Mac/OSX, because of the difficulty of packaging applications for it.  If you are not afraid of the command line (terminal), then you can follow the instructions on the Building Armory from Source page."

Are you familar with Ubuntu? If the computer will stay offline, why bother? The risk of downloading a virus isn't there, unless it comes in the way of your usb stick. I'd stick with something you are familar with, and at most fresh install the OS with a PAID version if windows, not downloaded torrent.

No need to pay, a little patience is needed and you'll have it running soon enough. Do you already have Armory installed on your offline computer? Where are you stuck?

Isn't the entire point of Bitcoins to be annoymous and trade it for cash so it's tax free?

You guys seem to be missing the point if you're claiming it on your taxes.. just sayin.

No..that's not the point of bitcoin at all. Only to a few with an extremely limited mindset.

You can get a screenshot to say whatever you want, that's not proof.

Love how Lurk has a problem with negativity in his loan threads and he's an asshole otherwise, and we're all ungrateful.
Passed your free raffle, how exactly do you plan on verifying the result? Sure, have your fun giving away your money, but no one is going to enter a payed raffle, ran by an admitted, addicted gambler where you can't even verify the winner. What a joke.

I wish I could ignore specific users and their listings, or at least list their name on the browse listings page so I can pass by them. Some of their actions are very telling and I want no business with them in the future, despite good reputation on the site. It's a pain to click on the new listings just to see half of them from people I never wish to loan to.

I love threads like this. Reminds me of times in the past I felt the same, acted the same, preached love and connection. It helps seeing it from others now, to realize how fucking stupid I sounded. Thanks for that.

Is a baby who cries because of hunger, disconnected? Would you starve your child to prove your point? By your definition, when feeding your child you are only attributing to the destruction of awareness, and destruction of their true potential(which apparently is maggot food). We should ignore our primal instinct to care for our young and just let them die, and become ONE with nature...We aren't ACTIVELY killing them, we just choose not to feed them. Oh it's not that we don't care, it's that we care too much to let them live!
16  Other / Off-topic / Re: Why are drugs bad? Is Marijuana killing me slowly? on: September 03, 2012, 01:42:18 PM
To say marijuana can be used everyday without ill effects is just foolish. I'm not here to say smoke or not, I'm strongly in belief of legalization and regulation but proper drug education first and foremost. Ill effects? Paranoia, anxiety, short term memory loss etc are all ill effects, temporary or otherwise. Putting smoke in your lungs is never good but can be mitigated by eating or vaporizing. Recent studies suggest smoking under 18 leaves lasting mental deficits.

I'm not here to argue for against marijuana or drugs, and make a debate on positive vs negative effects, but if you choose to use them, use them responsibly and don't fool people into thinking it's perfect. Education is key, and I laugh at the thought of rogaine having more ill effects than cocaine.

Then they need lessons in market research, I guess.

"The loudest one in the room is the weakest one in the room"

Reading the forums, especially this one, and basing your bitcoin opinions on the personalities that constantly need their opinions heard and validated is only scratching the surface of who represents the bitcoin userbase.

Law enforcement might somehow someday figure out a way to track it, I just don't know how yet.

Cryptography will fail somehow someday, I just don't know how yet.

We're doomed.

Happy to hear it wasn't something more serious.
