2  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: tradehill instant buy down? on: June 23, 2011, 02:36:39 PM
so should I just do a buy order instead?
yes, buy orders end up saving you money anyways because instant has like a 10% fee on top of any other fees. Stick to those buy/sell orders, just watch the market.

What kinds of NoSQL systems have you used? Couch, Mongo?  I've been using RDBMS for so long I can't even imagine how NoSQL would work. So I'm thinking about starting to play around with Amazon's NoSQL implementation -- I'm forgetting what they call it.  I've been playing around with the free tier of AWS and am impressed by EC2, and it's so cheap to use their native NoSQL database in comparison to the cost of running a dedicated relational DB on AWS, and evidently faster, too.  By the way, how familiar are you with Javacard, or JavaME?

I like MongoDB's implementation and i love the way that NoSQL works, it's a powerful system and very efficient for how new it is. A major reason that i want to see NoSQL thrive is  how insanely easy it is to use, it writes almost exactly like JS and you could learn it in about an hour. It does have it's drawbacks though, currently it doesn't have great security (one login for entire database/server i believe) so u ave to implement more security yourself and it doesn't have a lot of hosting support. I haven't used Javacard or JaveME but sounds like it could be useful  Wink. Also forgot to mention that i'm addicted to photoshop and can create most anything lol

Also thanks for the .5BTC, will help for further Bitcoin ventures  Grin

If you're the person waiting until the very last second to bit, then you might come out ahead. I can't imagine why the price would even go up until that point, except for the "stupid" users of the site.

It's a brilliant business scam really. The people actually buying the stuff can't complain because if played right, they'd pay X + $1, where X = ending action price. The site makes a shit ton of money off the bids, and the people who are losing the scam are the ones trying to bid early. I can't see any reason why anyone with any sense would bit until that last second, though.

thats whats so stupidly crazy about the site, people do wait till last second but every time you bid the time increase like 10 seconds or something so someone else ups the time after that etc...

definitely not true, heard that arctic silver 5 is really good

You are right and wrong. Applying thermal paste can cause an increase in temps, but it has nothing to do with mining. It has to do with how much you're using. Your tube should tell you how much to apply, but if it doesn't just try to keep it spread fairly thin. Don't spread it like you would a peanut butter sandwich or you will most likely have issues with temp.

ahh yes forgot to mention that, was assuming he would know how to apply it (watch a vid), but for the most part it should help temps

Languages: PHP, HTML, CSS, JS, MySQL, NoSQL, C# (and XNA  Roll Eyes), Java
Currently working on some personal projects but looking into staring up a mining pool after i am finished with them (website and an indie arcade game). I am very good at design and backend of applications and websites so i guess that makes me one of those whole package deals lol. Currently don't have much for a portfolio but i'm working on it.

There's my blurb to get the ball rolling  Grin. Like the idea behind this thread btw.

12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Installed a 6950, No Onboard Sound on: June 18, 2011, 02:19:04 AM
So about a week ago i installed my shiny new 6950 to start mining and i noticed that i no longer had sound. So, i googled around a bit and tried a couple different fixes: changed onboard audio from auto to enabled, reinstalled drivers, uninstalled drivers, etc. But i still havent had any luck. My "Playback Devices" in windows shows only the hdmi audio from the video card ("ATI DP Output"). SCII for a week with no sound =  Cry. Any thoughts?

System Specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 955
ASRock 880GXH/USB3 AM3 (onboard R4250)
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB
MSI Twin Frozr III PE/OC R6950
WD Caviar SE16 500GB x2
Cooler Master HAF 932
CORSAIR 650TX
Windows 7 (64-bit)

computerparts, another thread shows that some clients use way too much CPU



where can I learn about difficulty?

1: that was guiminer and he fixed it with the next update so you should be fine now

2: Right HERE

First always look at newegg first  Wink, best prices and normally better products.

Second Ultra is a cheap Tiger Direct brand, may sound good but its not the deal you think it is if it blows your 3 shiny 6990's.

I recommend Corsair, amazing company (tier one): THIS BABY

Phenom II 1090T hex-core, and im using my redwood
well then your deffinately using your cpu then, make sure you have OpenCL installed
19  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: ATI 5570 question on: June 16, 2011, 04:30:30 AM
While phoenix miner probably is faster on that card I don't think that's the main problem. You should still get way more than 10Mh/s out of it. Are you sure you didn't select the cpu as device instead of the gpu?

i was thinking that too but if he only has a 5570 i wouldn't expect him to have a quad core with like 3gHZ per core to get that lol
20  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Why not 5Btc every 1 minute? on: June 16, 2011, 04:28:58 AM
Each block is basically two hashes and some misc info. They would stay exactly the same size even if generated once every minute or even once every 5 seconds.

I don't understand the second part of your post. You were arguing that a block every 1 min would benefit miners and I say that the benefit would be marginal at best. The 10 times longer block chain would be a downside for the average non-mining user so if you really care about them then you'll see that this is a silly idea.
Basically this is what my idea is (guesses for sizes):

50BTC (sent every 5mins): Header(100bytes) + Transaction(50 transactions, 5MB) + Footer(20bytes)

5BTC (sent every 30sec): Header(100bytes) + Transaction(5 transactions, 0.5MB) + Footer(20bytes)

so it would end up being slightly large in the long ruin but it would make up for that with increased speed and efficiency  Tongue
