1  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [410GH] ABCPool PPS - Proxy Pool For High & Steady Mining Rewards on: March 09, 2012, 08:50:01 PM
Hi I've noticed that my miners are now being blocked, I first updated to the most recent edition of CGMiner as that seemed to fix the problem but now even that's stopped. I was at 600Mhz I know it's not much but am I a victim of the new scheme? It's a bit annoying that my miners just stop and I didn't notice because they're still on and working at another location (only one IP though I'm not a botnet)

I think it's simple in the sense of if you've got a ton of capital then it's quite easy as sellers want to use you to expand their potential market and buyers want to use you for ease or whatever you offer. However you've got to be of Paypal level to do that.

Anyone else seeing a spike on the unknown % making up the hash rate? looking at 53% atm with 67 blocks solved by , is this just a default IP the site sets if it can't get one, an error, plain luck or something else?

I understand the thermal output of these boards is quite low due to low power consumption, do you know what wattage is outputted as heat? And also if a single larger fan would be adaquate to cool several of the boards, I'd prefer them as a quiet and power cheap alternative to GPU mining.

What asking him kindly?

He's got them now, if a bitcoin exchnage can't get a user to give back 511BTC that was accidently sent to them I doubt you'll have much luck.

There are many ways that I could possibly recover my bitcoins but the fact is that I need to track down the thief first anyway so there really is no point to going into detail about it here.  Please, if you don't have anything to contribute to my original question then don't post in this thread.

I am contributing to the original question tracking him down is useless if you can't do anything afterwards. The police won't be able to help you and paypal and ebay won't help because you're trying to sell a digital good with no proof of transfer and acting against their TOS's

What are you going to do if you do track them down, get the police to arrest them?

You say you had to borrow money to pay him back.
But in your screenshot, there is no deposit (the funds you borrowed), only 2 withdrawls.
This means you already had the funds.  Why lie about having to get funds?
(I think I'm following this correctly)

Nope. Those funds came off Mt. Gox. I'm not sharing that.
Point being, Cablepair was refunded the money so this thread shouldn't be continuing but hey guess what... it is.

You paid him from that account, therefor ethe funds must have entered that account.

His point is that you claimed to not have any BTC to pay him back, and had to get it from your fiance yet there is no transaction for this, seeing as the payment to him is confirmed they must have come from this account and therefore either your fiance must have paid you a while back or you had funds already there, either way you held off refunding him by saying you had no funds when you must have had some.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: I'm done on: September 16, 2011, 11:54:11 AM

Don't over-commit unless you have lots of resources to back your effort. Sorry man.

It's not that, I have the resourses and the stock.. it's the community who thinks that bitcoins are here to be mined and then cashed out for profit. 6 months ago when I started BitCard the idea was fresh and good. Anything card related to be sold in bitcoins instead of dollars. I went through the hassle of creating the site, moving it over to GoDaddy so it was a dot com, made it all professional, and ya know what? No one bought a d**n card. I thought I'd juice things up a bit, so I added gift cards and card only games and games that had card in them.. something to bring in business but then select few decided to undercut my prices and sell those gift cards for less then what they cost. You can't sell a $20 card for $6 and expect to make anything off that. So because of all of that, I have made my decision. It wasn't the rate that bothered me or the money.. I could toss money at the site all day but it was all of you. You made me fail. This community as a whole who overlooked me becuase I was selling at spot price made me fail. You who decided to undercut me so everyone would leave me alone and let me die out, made me fail. Is it alot of anger? You betcha, but it's justifiable. I was even going to go off and add some more games that just came out in the mall for this month but then the fiance reminded me of how I've never sold a single item on the site, leading to this.

I'm sorry but you're angry at people not wanting what you offered. Shouldn't you have done market research prior to investing everything then?
11  Economy / Economics / Re: Why there was a Bitcoin hype on: September 12, 2011, 09:17:39 AM

That is the stupidest fucking idea I have ever heard...

...even more-so since regular shipping can be virtually anonymous, and more secure and less suspicious...

I agree, passing on a parcel would be slow, bureaucratic and victim to high levels of theft, why bother passing on a parcel for change if you can claim to have passed it on and just steal it then sell it on ebay or the like?
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Hedge Fund on: September 08, 2011, 07:58:45 PM
Orr you can just disappear with 1k bitcoins that your customers 'invested', more than 3x the profit for you and no hassle of watching markets. If you're going to be anonymous don't expect andyone to want to deal with you, considering the past history the community's had.

Mine arrived today (UK) I must say the detail on them is quite amazing considering the size and as my first BTC for goods I don't think I could have chosen a better proof of concept.

I own 3 of these myself and the voltage can be changed through software.

I presume you're from USA, are you willing to ship internationally?
15  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: How does Mt. gox sell the BTC's they've earned? on: August 29, 2011, 07:18:58 PM
They can sell on their own market too? All money that's trasnfered to them for use on their site they hold but can't use for paying bills obviously, so they can just fill buy orders and free up the help USD for use in the company if they wanted too. I doubt they'd do it all at once as then they'd drop the market price and get less compared to doing it in small amounts, that and I doubt they'd let the business get to a point where they'd need to this in any scale anyway.

Well the one is stealing which will get noticed if you consume a significant amount and the other.

And solar power panels are still too expensive their roi is even worse than the mining rigs and I doubt that anyone who writes here and claims free electricity has a high end solar system.

Define "a significant amount", it doesn't matter if you've got 1 person running 20Ghash or 40 people just running 500Mhash each, the latter probably won't be noticed by landlords or universitys especially if they live in a large dorm where it's split between say 10 people.  I get free electricity in that I don't have to pay it, but be welcome to not believe me it doesn't matter to me if you do.

CDs aren't made for long term storage, over 10 years the dye which indicates whats 1 or a 0 could bleed.

While bruce can be quite optimistic I think he's a good public figure as he's got drive and composure. Certainly he's done more than I or many others have to make bitcoin into the publics eye
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin store is moving merchandise! on: August 26, 2011, 09:31:53 PM
I do not cash most of my stores sellings.  I either keep them, or spend them in the bitcoin economy.  My sales have been way down due to the loss of mybitcoin and the fact that still, no one has a merchant plugin for opencart that works for standard bitcoin addresses.

Well if you're a business and have finances, why not step up to the platform and offer to pay someone to do it? Else the "I'll just wait for someone else to do it" will be continued on by everyone and get us nowhere.

Only thing I've noticed was a 2-4 mhash/s drop, and refresh balance button was gone along with slush's pool set to Other.

Went back to v2001-07-01.

I think this is the same problem I've got, please pardon me if you've answered this but I can't see an explanation reading your posts. Is it just a bug with my system or has the refresh balance for slush's pool disappeared? I don't run it through "other" either, just curious why this has been removed if it's not a problem on my end.
