I'm not able to vote, seemingly because I'm a scammer. But put me on the second option if you're counting the votes up.

It looks like the voting is all tied-up. I won't intervene then. If BTC-E is going to come out with an exchange this weekend, then so be it. I will look forward to buying some LTC at a low price. Smiley

Same for me here, Litecoin runs great in some machines and totally cannot be connected in others even though the ports were opened.  I seemed to have seen from a forumer that he added some nodes but still trying to find out the correct way.  It is wasted that some can mine while others remain idle because of the weird connection issue.

I tried to port forward the ports 9332 and 9333 through the ZyXel router, but since it has a limit of ten port forwarding settings for some reason, I tried to delete one and instead of deleting it, it gives an error. Installed a firmware that's three years newer, and instead of fixing the problem it introduces yet another issue. At this point I got a glorious message informing me I found a block and yet, after 5 minutes, I got nothing.

Yeah, this sucks. Tongue

I hope to have this solved in my fork of Litecoin. I fixed the pre-seed lists. If you'd like, you can grab it from my repository here: https://github.com/terrytibbs/litecoin

But then again, I'm a SCAMMER, so you might just want to wait for coblee to approve my pull request.

I've looked over terrytibbs' code and merged it in. If you want, you can grab latest from source. Let me know if anyone needs a binary and I can generate one.

I can vouch for terrytibbs. He has helped out a lot with the Litecoin launch and hasn't asked for anything in return. Though I have not traded anything with him, I can vouch for his character.

How often will you be issuing such upgrades?

I probably won't do another update unless there's a threat of 51% attack. Right now it will take a lot of CPU power for someone to orphan your coins since block 10080. Not impossible, but probably not worth it for anyone to attack right now. When an exchange opens, I will pay more attention and see if I need to do more block locking and maybe implement the signed block hash that someone suggested.
1104  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Litecoin - a lite version of Bitcoin. Launched! on: October 14, 2011, 08:53:48 AM
I did another block hash lock at the last difficulty change at block 10080. Please get latest source, compile, and run it.

Windows client: https://github.com/downloads/coblee/litecoin/litecoin-windows-client-40104.zip

I've asked twobits to help build windows daemon. Coming soon.

This should be the last update for a while now. The diff will catch up to the network hashrate and we should be pretty good.

Windows daemon: https://github.com/downloads/coblee/litecoin/litecoin-windows-daemon-40104.zip

Please update.

it's a Chocobo. google it. my favorite character of my favorite video game.

for a donation address, search a few pages back. EskimoBob posted it. all donations to me will be used to make this coin succeed via bounties/rewards.

speaking of that, terrytibbs is helping me to design a logo for Litecoin. I figure I should open it to everyone. If anyone else want to give it a try, post your logo to this thread. I will reward 100 LTC to the designer of the logo I ultimately go with. I realize 100 LTC is not a lot, but having your logo being selected is a good reward by itself.

hmm... maybe I should have premined to have coins for bounties. Cheesy

Never mind about the avatar. I never played FF so I can't understand.

Here's 1 block for your efforts (and I might add, for your not-premining). Enjoy it:

The convergence is remarkable. Just 5 difficulty increases and we got a stable network. I have to say congratulations as well, coblee.

Whatever happens, you deserve credits for your effort and consistency so far. Don't have much BTC, so do you have an LTC donation address?

Just one ancillary note coblee, with all respect to the work you've done so far. Feel free to disregard the following:

Your avatar seems to me rather unfitting for an alternative chain promoter.

I was fine with the harmless vegetarian insect.

Also fine with the greedy carnivorous serpent.

But a chicken Huh Or is it something else judging by its paws? Maybe I am wrong.

If I can convince an exchange to open or not open, which do you prefer?
1109  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: SolidCoin Now officially most secure p2p currency on: October 14, 2011, 02:07:43 AM
SAC... So CH/RS wanted to pump and dump, and that's what you accuse him off, but reading that convo i saw you playing the game, the same as him, so you got butthurt for something else and now you're all itchy, trash mouthing him for it.  Roll Eyes

Conclusion: SAC is as much of a scammer as CH/RS. I vote for a scammer tag for SAC...



The difference is that SAC is just doing what any speculator does: buy low and sell high.
What CH/RS is doing is to gather a bunch of people with a lot of coins to try to manipulate the market for a coin he created.

Big difference!

I mean everyone is blindly running his closed source binaries. Do you know how easy it is to make a small change such that he can steal money from the CPF? I mean currently he has the keys to the CPF. Who's to say he will relinquish them? And by the time people do realize he's stealing money, what can you do about it? If everyone has so much invested in solidcoins, you can't really do anything about him without hurting your own investment.

That is what he counts on peoples greed being as great as his or as he told me when I had enough of the pump and dump fraud he tried to get me in on that he had going on the bitparking exchange what are you going to do kill the goose that laid the golden egg. Even posting and telling everyone about what he was up to did no good really in the end as most of these people think they are actually going to get rich with that fool in charge because they are so blinded by that greed they dismiss that and everything else in their desire to get that golden egg.

I wish you had the logs to post on pastebin. Maybe check your logs directory?

Oh. Hmm. Where is Smoothie anyway?  I haven't seen him post in a while.

He met up with OldMiner in real life and no one has seen them since.
As I have suggested before, bulanula is OldMiner.
It's quite obvious when you look at how he writes and the fact that we haven't seen OldMiner around
(though I have "Ignore" on OldMiner forever, I haven't seen anything even with his name next to it)

OldMiner stopped posting on 9/9: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=18639;sa=showPosts
bulanula started posting on 9/8 when his last post before that was 7/17: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=11905;sa=showPosts;start=500

So possible, but they were both posting before 7/17. So if it's true, either he has a serious case of multiple personality disorder or he took over someone else's account.

now that was funny - well done sir

It was a joke, and then I searched for their last post:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=25960;sa=showPosts
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=18639;sa=showPosts

Their last posts were 9/9 and 9/11... interesting. Smiley

From following the alt currency board religiously for the past month, I have read most of your posts. You (viperjbm) sound like a very intelligent person and always try to back up what you say with fact. So I always give you the benefit of the doubt even though I don't agree with you most of the times.

What I want to know is how CH/RS has managed to convince you so fully. How can you trust CH/RS 100% like you do? Do you not see any of his flaws? Sure, when he first came on the scene, SC1 seems like a great alternative to Bitcoin. He was hitting all the right notes. But when he started slandering Bitcoin on his website and started acting all childish and closing his open source code, wasn't that a good time to start thinking whether you should still think so highly of him? And now with SC2, you've got a decentralized trusted node system that feeds him a million solidcoins every couple of years or so. Can you really trust that he will not abuse the system? If solidcoin become worth $1 each, CH/RS (or his CPF if that makes it seem better) will be making $1 mil every few years. Wouldn't that be the ultimate temptation for anyone (even one as noble as CH/RS) to take some money off the top.

I mean everyone is blindly running his closed source binaries. Do you know how easy it is to make a small change such that he can steal money from the CPF? I mean currently he has the keys to the CPF. Who's to say he will relinquish them? And by the time people do realize he's stealing money, what can you do about it? If everyone has so much invested in solidcoins, you can't really do anything about him without hurting your own investment.

Everything about SC2 and CH/RS is so against what Satoshi set out to do with Bitcoin, it's really disgusting to me and most of the people on this board. So I'm really surprised that someone as intelligent as you is blinded by his spell.

coblee, can block locking be done via signed file so compiling the client can be skipped?

I suggested this over IRC but got a lot of pushback. My suggestion was that I can use the alert system to send a message to all clients with a new locked block. But people were worried that I might abuse this privilege, so I didn't do it.
  Make it a configuration option which takes multiple signatures.  Then people can decide who they want to trust in this regard.

The might be a good idea. But now that the coin is doing well, there's less need for a lot more locking anymore. Not sure if it's worth implementing it. I will consider it.

On a separate note: BCX, why do you have to buy apple stuff..

I like Apple! Apple has been very very good to me  Grin

Here's another reason you should support Litecoin then:

Typo on the worker page, it's _1 and password 1, not letters sorry.
Still something wrong with stats - I've been mining for 10 mins but no stats (still 0 active workers), then it logged me out

How many shares did you submit? Stats aren't updated, because there are not submitted blocks.

I've had 3 computers hashing at this for an hour and no shares... somethings wrong.

I recompiled everything, even switched back over to the testnet but no one is on it for me to see if it still works there. All I did was remove testnet=1 and added the nonce and stuff and restarted everything. I updated to the latest versions of litecoin, nothing.

I don't know what the difference between testnet and litecoin main is, but the pool isn't working.

Anyone smarter than me I'll share a % with you if you can help me get this running. I don't know what to do from here though. I've recompiled pushpool from artforz and litecoin with no additional positive response.

Does solo mining work for you?
Are you running litecoind with daemon=1 and server=1?

I suggested this over IRC but got a lot of pushback. My suggestion was that I can use the alert system to send a message to all clients with a new locked block. But people were worried that I might abuse this privilege, so I didn't do it.

Another option is to be able to modify the config to add new locked blocks. So I can publish to the forum what I considered a good block hash and everyone can add it to their configs. Problem with this is people will make mistakes and cause their clients to do a wrong lock. Or they will attempt to do their own locking thinking that that would protect them. And this might cause them to fork their own chain. So it could get pretty messy.

So for now, we will stick with new source/compile/binary.

Auto update is unsafe, because i (or someone else) can push out a malicious update.
So.... Is this one a malicious update?  Wink

It's better if each user decides for themselves whether or not to upgrade.
Should I upgrade?  Smiley

Check my past history and see if you trust me. If you do, then you should upgrade to the latest binary.

I would suggest that everyone build their own clients from source if they are able to.
And you can easily see from the source that nothing malicious was added to the bitcoin code:
