641  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Modular Python Bitcoin Miner - Official Thread on: February 09, 2012, 08:17:59 PM
Very sure. I programmed them using the x6500 software. I have all 5 up and running using 5 instances of your software with single x6500....but the hotplug won't work for whatever reason. Any suggestions?
No idea how hotplug cannot work if single workers do, that's really weird. They both enumerate all devices on the bus, just that the single worker skips everything where the serial doesn't match, and that hotplug spawns a single worker for every serial that it finds on the bus.
But you should be able to just copy the worker definition in the config file for all 5 boards instead of running 5 MPBM instances. That's basically what hotplug would do anyway.

I have 2 x6500 workers in a single instance of MPBM on my Mac.

I never got the hotplug working on my Mac either. I got the same error message. So I gave up and just specified the serial and that's been working fine.

@Coblee:
What kind of cooling setup do you have and what getwork interval did you have with the old miner? I epoxied my heatsinks, have an active 120mm fan over my X6500 and ran it with a getwork (-i) of 14 getting. I'm finding I get a steady 390-410mh/s (but usually 400). I 'm going to try out MPBM on the weekend when I get a chance.

Good decision. With the normal x6500 miner, I was only able to do 355 mhash/s with the 200mhz bitstream. With MPBM, it's showing me 393 mhash/s for the past day. This is running on a Mac and measured using Eclipse's share count. I'm not sure why it's so much better, but I'm not complaining!

I have epoxied my heatsinks also and have an active 120mm fan over 2 stacked x6500. I have getwork of 15. At first I thought the epoxy wasn't put on correctly so heat wasn't dissipating properly. But seeing that I'm getting much better results with MPBM makes me think the default x6500 miner wasn't efficient. It might also just be not efficient on a Mac.
645  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: X6500 Custom FPGA Miner on: February 09, 2012, 01:47:09 AM
I think we can all agree that MPBM is awesome! I think MPBM will become our recommended miner, and we will support and develop it into the future. We'll most likely be phasing out development on x6500-miner over time.

What are you going to do with the up to 1 trillion $ that you get from selling your RLCs? Will you always keep all that money in reserves or are you going to do fractional banking just like traditional banks? If you will keep that money in reserves, you risk having it stolen, embezzled, or just having need to use it because your company is running out of money. If you don't plan to keep all of it in reserves, then you are no better than the current banking system + paypal.

In a sense, you are just printing your own currency backed by USD. Just like the US printed dollar backed by gold. And maybe one day, you will remove that backing. I hope you are prepared for the legal mess you are getting into.
647  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The Litecoin Development Club on: February 08, 2012, 09:33:57 PM
mine LTC on web pages (javascript miner), games, etc where CPU coin is stronger. Then the website/game developer can pay rewards in terms of LTC. Bitcoin wont be able to compete here. Other alt-coins (including custom altcoins by game owners) may indeed enter here, but its unlikely if they can use our LTC miners/ libraries for free.

Vanderbleek (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=44378) was working on a game that uses litecoin as a currency and generates litecoin in the background. I don't know the current status of it. You may want to contact him.

If we could have an online wallet for LTC just like blockchain's wallet, people wouldnt even need to download anything. They could just play games, spend their LTC on merchandise (or whatever).

There's already a litecoin instawallet created by g2x3k: http://wallet.it.cx/

Anyone working on an Icarus worker?

I might do that if someone can offer me access to a board for testing.

I might be able to do that. What kind of access do you need?
649  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Modular Python Bitcoin Miner - Official Thread on: February 08, 2012, 05:06:07 PM
Anyone have this working on a Mac? Before I try setting it up for my x6500 miners, wanted to make sure someone had already tested.

Yes, it's working on my Mac. I needed to install these 2:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyusb/files/PyUSB%201.0/1.0.0-alpha-2/pyusb-1.0.0a2.zip/download
http://sourceforge.net/projects/libusb/files/libusb-1.0/libusb-1.0.8/

I finally got this working by installing libusb (and it does break the x6500 default miner)
This miner is fantastic! It has all the stats that I can think of in a nice layout... color coded as well!

Anyone working on an Icarus worker?

Well, I put the serial in the config.py myself:

Code:
  # Single X6500 worker
  { \
    # Worker module
    "type": worker.fpgamining.x6500.X6500Worker, \
    # Worker module parameters, in this case board serial number (default: take first available)
    "deviceid": "AH00WOWD", \
  }, \

  # Single X6500 worker
  { \
    # Worker module
    "type": worker.fpgamining.x6500.X6500Worker, \
    # Worker module parameters, in this case board serial number (default: take first available)
    "deviceid": "AH00WI18", \
  }, \

I'll take a case Cheesy

Aww, it won't scan the QR code Tongue

Too bad it takes 23 seconds per side of each mint to engrave and isn't practical as a product.

I was pleasantly surprised that the laser beam turns the clear plastic a deep copper color - which is highly unusual.  I was expecting a light melt or a white frost.

These mints are Trader Joe's Green Tea mints.  And I can't scan the QR code off the real mints either, it just doesn't work that well I guess.

I thought that was a photoshop. You actually made these. lol Smiley

Edible bitcoins... imagine if you really put a private key in those mints with 0.1 btc. That means by eating one, you are removing 0.1 btc from circulation for ever.
655  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Vanitygen: Vanity bitcoin address generator [v0.17] on: February 03, 2012, 07:13:22 PM
Anyone tell me how to generate LTC vanity addresses?

-X 48 does not seem to work.



$ ./vanitygen -X 48 L1QaZ
Prefix 'L1QaZ' not possible
Hint: valid bitcoin addresses begin with "1"

It works, it's just that the address versioning doesn't allow certain characters.

That's right. Litecoin addresses go from "LK..." to "Li..."
So 1 is not valid for the second character.

New windows client release: https://github.com/downloads/coblee/litecoin/litecoin-windows-client-0.5.0.9.zip

This just includes a small fix that addresses spam transactions for those of you still having problems with a bloated wallet.  Specifically, it includes this commit: https://github.com/coblee/litecoin/commit/c61d9e9717217c521c8746630c732347711cc7b5
Basically, when scanning blocks and transactions, it will ignore the transaction if the output is less than MinInput (defaults to 0.0001 ltc, but can be changed). So if you do a rescan, all the spam transactions will no longer be in your wallet.
658  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Physical Litecoins on: February 02, 2012, 01:31:53 AM
Yeah, sorry about that, I was wanting to get one... I have just been distracted as of late.

If you end up sending out another batch, i'll most likely pay for my one or two.

If you pay for yours and send me your address today, i will get them out to you.
659  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: On the Solidcoin Economic Changes on: February 01, 2012, 07:31:37 PM
Here were my thoughts on this last year:

SolidCoin is not a cryptocurrency, or at least by most people's definition of cryptocurrency. There's really no need for miners. SC miners do not secure the chain. That is already done by the trusted nodes. So miners are basically wasting their electricity.

Think about it this way... with Bitcoin, miners hash to secure the network and they get rewarded for the security that they are adding to the network. With SolidCoin, miners are just wasting electricity because RealSolid thinks that this is a fair way to handout SCs. It's similar to a King asking his peasants to run around in circles. The faster they run, the more coins they get. So of course, profit-driven peasants will run around in circles, which adds no value to anything. King RealSolid realized that he is passing out too many solidcoins this way, which will dilute his own holdings. So guess what, he decided to pass out only 5 SC (instead of 32 SC) to his loyal peasants for each circle they complete. Then what happens? Well there are less peasants running around in circles b/c it's not worth it anymore. But that doesn't matter to RealSolid, because peasants running around in circles doesn't add any value in the first place. Hmm...

Also, since the trusted nodes controls 50% of the blocks, by definition, you cannot do a 51% attack unless you have control of a trusted node.

It's great when you create all the rules for your own realm AND you actually find suckers willing to follow you.

No one should be surprised where it's headed... 32 -> 5 -> 0.07 -> 0
660  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: On the Solidcoin Economic Changes on: February 01, 2012, 10:08:04 AM
So it seems like you know a lot about this attack, huh? I wonder why.

Sure, because unlike you who doesn't pay attention to their chain this stuff interests me. I like making SolidCoin better, and even changed our max block size after seeing LiteCoin abused. Once that attack became public I looked at when it started and was surprised it was a relatively long time before it was announced, which made me realize you weren't "on the job". It's the truth right? Want to make up some more FUD ?

The attacker was testing the network for a few days before gmaxwell's post. He was sending various amounts of 0.1337 and some 0.00000001 around. It was after gmaxwell's post (or very close to that time) that his spams really started to impact the network, where he would send tons of 0.00000001 in each transaction. That was when I was alerted to the problem. His previous test transactions did not catch my attention as I don't spend my spare time looking at block explorer. So by your definition, that means I'm not "on the job", huh?

CoinHunter/RealSolid, you're a sad person. I feel sorry for you.
