Question, if the reader develops a tear in the light layer, is readability affected while the light is turned off?

No. You would only see a tear/spot with the light on. Also interesting to note is that the earliest Nook Glowlights had more quality control issues (same with Kindle Paperwhite) and there are people who have had Glowlights for months with no issues. I'd recommend a case; B&N says not to use a screen protector. My guess is that if the anti-glare coating is scratched through, that is when you have screen issues. There have been reports that the screen feels different to the touch with the newer Glowlights vs. the older ones; I suspect B&N changed their manufacturing process.

I can send the newest serial numbers first. The Nook I opened is a "low" serial number and even thought the screen has no damage, I decided to keep for myself a "high" (i.e. about 4-5 months old) serial number because IMO the screen lighting was better.

It also sounds like B&N honors screen problems in the 1-year warranty.

With the overnight increase in the BTC exchange rate, price reduced to 0.90 BTC. For those who want to explore rooting options, you can't get a better e-ink Android device! Smiley

This is big news for me! I've always supported Humble Bundle and have nearly all of them. I increased my amount substantially -- well over the Broken Age amount. I might consider bumping it up to the top ten even since I'm a fan of Tim Schafer/Double Fine.

Every Humble Bundle gets posted on the big deals sites (like SlickDeals) and they are generally respected for what they are doing so I think this goes a long way for Bitcoin's publicity. Let's get more "name-brand" sites accepting Bitcoin in some form or fashion!

Buy now and you get a FREE READING LIGHT!  Wait, NO, order RIGHT NOW and we'll include not one but TWO FREE READING LIGHTS!

So you're saying you'll take two? Grin

I have four new-in-box Nook Glowlight eReaders. Three of the boxes are sealed; the other has been used lightly for just over a day. The used reader does not have any spots or tears in the light layer. Asking 0.90 BTC each including Priority Mail shipping in the US; I will sell the sealed readers first. I will also update this first post from time to time to reflect the changing value of BTC if necessary.

I've done a few sales here back in the early days (2011 craze), mostly game codes. I have no problem posting pictures or using escrow. If I don't get much of a response, I'm going to toss them on eBay since I have 300+ feedback and they should be easy enough to sell there.

PM or reply if interested, thanks!

I'm having the following problem:

I am an early user of BTC Guild (< 1000) and I did not set an email address.
I want to change my wallet address, but it says I have to confirm it by email.
So I went to set an email... and it says I have to confirm it by email.

How can I confirm my email by email when I have no email? Tongue

I think I found the problem, some old accounts had the email field as empty, rather than NULL.  Try again and it should work Smiley.

That's why they pay you the big bits! Thanks, it worked! Grin

Please pastebin your bamt.conf

Before I dump the whole thing... other than enabling the two GPUs that need to mine and editing pools is there anything else that is necessary to get started? To make things as simple as possible, I started editing less and less, so it seems that changing the disabled value to 0 is all I did in the end.

bamt.conf is YAML.  Indentation and spacing is relevant.

At a minimum:

1 - set disabled to 0 for the gpus you want to use.
2 - edit the pools file with your mining credentials

Don't use tabs in bamt.conf
Don't change the spacing in the indents

Check, check. Did that, used the built-in menus links to edit, didn't change spacing, set pools exactly as shown. Restart mining, no results. Tried this on three different machines, all dual 5830's, same MB. I did get it working with cgminer after setting cgminer: 1 and cgminer_opts, but it's not optimal since it doesn't monitor the miners for me.

I've been trying to get BAMT working for the past couple of hours without success. About a year and a half ago I had set up my own mining farm and scripts to generate webpages. Now I'm moving some miners to a new location and figured that BAMT should be the easy way to go. Wrong! Someone please point out the obvious as I'm pulling my hair out.

First and foremost, no matter what I do I cannot get BAMT to think my two 5830's are configured. I've tried disabled=0 of course, and fiddled with the overclock settings, and tried pre_oc_cmd. Pools are set up exactly as they ought to be for Phoenix in /etc/bamt/pools. I've tweaked things here and there but:

  • Cards display on the desktop as not configured (mother -v does not change this)
  • Cards do not overclock as set
  • pre_oc_cmd does not run
  • Fan speed does not change to 100%
  • Cards do not mine
  • Various status pages (web/gpumon/etc) show nothing

I've checked the /live/image/BAMT/CONTROL/ACTIVE/ directory; it is empty.

After doing this for a while I decided to test the remote capabilities. When I log in via SSH and try various aticonfig commands, I get:
Code:
ERROR - X needs to be running to perform ATI Overdrive(TM) commands

startx:
Code:
Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0

Edit: Solved aticonfig errors both with export DISPLAY=:0.

GAH! And regardless, it still won't mine.

Again, someone PLEASE tell me I'm missing something obvious here. Been reading through the full /opt/bamt/examples/bamt.conf ... no clue. At this point I'm feeling that I could have installed Ubuntu and drivers from scratch and still been ahead time-wise. Tongue

Bump:

I will pay $58 for 5 BTC.  I have card in hand now, please PM to work out details. 

You seem to be missing the fact that there's no good reason to sell BTC to you for less than the going rate. There are many good reasons not to sell to someone who wants to pay with a credit card. My recommendation if you have $ and want BTC fast is BitInstant.

I just ask everyone what the color of the sky is...

Should probably change that.  It was meant as a placeholder for a proper spam prevention measure.

I run a forum system and do something similar. There is a clock captcha (what time is it?) and a simple question. Since ditching "normal" captchas and moving to clock+easy question, I've had no problem with bots or spammers.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Securing your savings wallet on: September 18, 2012, 04:02:18 AM
I've used Ubuntu Privacy Remix + a downloaded version of Brainwallet.org.

To make/fund the wallet:
Run UPR and make a brainwallet using a long, secure passphrase. Write the address down AND copy it to a separate USB stick. Fund address as needed.

To spend coins:
Get your transaction info from block explorer like so:
http://blockexplorer.com/q/mytransactions/1JwSSubhmg6iPtRjtyqhUYYH7bZg3Lfy1T
Save it to your USB drive with UPR. Run UPR and use brainwallet to generate and sign a transaction. Copy the TX to second USB (and write down if paranoid). Broadcast to the network using one of various services.

There are other ways to do the same sorts of things using Electrum, but I found this simpler as all one needs are two USB sticks and UPR+Brainwallet.org.

Just curious... how many blocks has the pool found vs. how much has it paid out to date?

I like this pool but I'm scratching my head trying to figure out how it can keep up with such a low hash rate.
19  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Simplest way to stash bitcoin? on: September 07, 2012, 05:36:50 AM
In your position I would consider looking at some of the long-term offers to deposit into. It means a bit of risk of course, but one could say having someone else look after it for you, is avoiding the risk you were actually worried about. Just stick to the low interest stuff.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=88.0

That is THE worst advice I've ever seen given in response to "how to stash my coins".  Giving your coins to someone else to hold has way more risk than printing out paper wallets or running from a LiveOS, etc.

Agree. What happens when the long-term offers, even "legitimate" ones, shut down? The Bitcoins have to go somewhere, hence you still have to have a receiving address. That's assuming the best--that is, that you actually get something back instead of nothing at all. With the high number of scams we're seeing, you'd be better off simply storing your coins. A paper wallet in a secure location is MUCH better than hoping a CD or flash drive will last as long as you need. A brainwallet with a secure passphrase is the best, but not everyone will be able to pick a secure passphrase and remember it for years.
20  Economy / Lending / Re: need 0.62419344 BTC loan on: September 07, 2012, 05:28:50 AM
Why do I need it?  I'd like to see an even number of coins in my wallet when I have bitcoin client open. 

If that's all there is to it, you could instead give away whatever fraction needed (0.37580656 or 1.37580656) to a Bitcoin project and accomplish the same thing with less fuss.
