When naughty little Americans do bad things with their guns, Mommy and Daddy have to teach them a lesson by taking their privileges away.

And if you ask why, they will respond, "BECAUSE WE SAID SO!"

The OP sounds so ridiculous  Huh
10Gh/s already, has no clue about simple math (still has questions about pool fees)
Got a sheep mentality - "Deepbit must better, after all everybody is on it !"
Planning to expand to 30Gh/s, has no idea about remote access, walks around with a monitor (CRT ?) in hand instead Cheesy
Don't care for monitoring the machines - can't be bothered, but still drops in the room occasionally, to check if the rigs did not ran away  Grin

Zakcy, let me ask you - where did you get the money ? You mom's purse ?
I hope you are 15 and all this is just a wet dream of yours.

I'm just scared to think how many other like him are out there...

I'm scared to think how many others are like you out there.  

I honestly think the biggest threat to Bitcoin is the Bitcoin community and their pompous, arrogant attitudes.

Hey OP, that's why I penned this:

My guess is that you'll be losing out on an additional $8-$12 per day by using Deepbit.

I'm 16 years old, and got into Bitcoin when I was 15 years old. Granted I've been programming, doing server administration, and the likes for years and years, but I was able to understand the technical aspect of it.

That said, it isn't necessary to understand the technical side of it, and is in fact a turn-off to a lot of people. It makes Bitcoin seem "geeky" and only for tech guys. If the person is really interested in the technical side of it, they can learn that after the fact.

Just introduce them to Bitcoin, I say. But then, this isn't my bounty.

+1, you nailed it.

Unfortunately, computer geeks typically aren't too great at psychology which is the basis for effective marketing.

People like to feel safe, secure, loved, cool, sexy, excited, etc.

Nobody gives a shit about C++ or linux or FPGAs or cryptography.

But, if you can convince someone that using Bitcoin makes them cooler and sexier, then you have a winner.  When you have an unbelievably awesome product and you market it inappropriately, you end up where TiVo is.

I (NCKRAZZE) agree to send (1) 2007 American Eagle Silver Dollar to (the joint) for a total of 6.44 BTC. Payment shall be made with 24 hours of when tracking says that the item has arrived, or there will be an interest rate of (.1%) added per 24 hours of late payment.
6.44 does not include the shipping cost, the joint will send the amount of bitcoins for shipping on top of the 6.44btc.

It will be shipped with insurance as requested, and with a tracking number.

the joint, if this is all correct, please reply with an ok for me to ship.

Confirmed and PMed.
1427  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTB] Gold and Silver -- Gauging Supply on: May 03, 2012, 07:27:09 AM
If you are interested in anything larger, I have 2 100oz bars I am willing to part with for market value. Shipping would be apart from that price and would go USPS Flat rate anywhere in the USA. Escrow will be used.

Too steep for me at the moment.  Thanks though!
1428  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTB] Gold and Silver -- Gauging Supply on: May 03, 2012, 07:25:41 AM
Just curious if "market value" includes the premium associated with bullion coins.

For example, look at - the spot price of a Vienna Philharmonic is $1653 or $1717?

Yes, it includes the premiums, but I'd prefer they're uncirculated and/or graded.

It seems like this would create an incentive to keep your coins in an huge number of wallets, so when you get randomly picked you only lose a small fraction of your value. 

I don't think having users spread coins between hundreds of wallets is your intention.

You could do that, but in the long run it wouldn't make much difference.  All it would do is decrease the chances that you would lose all of your coins at once.

One downside would be that if this occurred on a mass level, the whole idea might become pointless.  Let's say someone had 100 wallets.  At a 5% decay rate per month, you could expect that, on average, 5 wallets would be selected for decay.  In this case, the "gamble" becomes predictable.

In other words, it would likely turn into a coin where people simply lose 5% of their current holdings every month.

Almost sounds like the Occcu  Cheesy

Occcu = GambleCoin?

39 btc for 1, volume discounts are available for more. However I prefer to treads 10 oz more as I have better access to them

Hm, thanks for the offer but it seems a little steep.  Coinabul currently has them at 37 BTC.  I'm mostly looking for stuff from non-dealers because they might be looking to save rather than profit.  BTC can carry a premium too (as evidenced by Ebay, Dialcoin, etc.) because of the hassle and fees associated with obtaining them.

Thanks though!  I've glanced at your silver maple thread a few times and I'll keep it in mind.
1431  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTB] Gold and Silver -- Gauging Supply on: May 02, 2012, 08:01:34 PM
I will have access to 20 oz of silver by Friday. However, it will not be at spot ( the smaller the quantities the larger the differential) but I can give you a deal if you take it all.

I prefer escrow, but I have already ships out 2 separate orders.

How would you like the silver? Large bars are cheaper for me and you and thus more savings.

I am living in Canada, but you'll have to cover the shipping and tracking.

What kind of price would I be looking at for a 5 oz. minted bar?
1432  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / GambleCoin - Alt Currency Idea on: May 02, 2012, 07:56:23 PM
This isn't to be taken very seriously.

But, since it seems that all alt. currencies to date (with the exception of namecoin which serves a specialized function) are essentially a gamble anyway, why not just cut to the chase and make a true alt. coin to gamble on.

The basic premise is this:  investing in GambleCoin would be a true and fair gamble.

Here's a very basic, hypothetical model:

1)  All GambleCoins have a probabilistic rate of decay.  For example, if there are 10 million Gamble coins and there is a 5% average rate of decay each month, then 500,000 coins will decay each month.

2)  When a GambleCoin decays, it means that it is removed from the users wallet and included in the next block to be mined.  

3)  The particular coins that decay are determined randomly according to randomly chosen GambleCoin wallets.  In other words, if there is a 5% rate of decay each month, then every month randomly selected wallets will have 100% of all GambleCoins removed from them until an approached average of 5% of the total sum of GambleCoins have been removed from users wallets.

4)  All GambleCoins will be premined and purchased using other currencies.  The incentive to mine would be sustained primarily by the inclusion of decayed coins into blocks and secondarily by transaction fees.  I haven't really thought about how to make this initial buying decentralized.

Thus, the whole premise of GambleCoin is that it is a risky investment.  Should you invest, you run the risk of your wallet being randomly selected for decay upon which you lose everything.  If you get lucky and your wallet is not selected, then you 'win' and continue to reap the rewards of mining.  

A higher rate of decay would correlate to a higher risk/higher reward opportunity as this would mean that more coins would decay and could be remined.  A lower rate of decay would correlate to a lower risk/lower reward opportunity.  The system is fair in that decayed coins are returned to the miners and not to a centralized authority.

Edit:  Think of the advertising possibilities.  "GambleCoin - You always win until you lose"

I may be interested in buying small amounts of gold and silver from those of you that:

1)  are willing to ship first via USPS insured with tracking
2)  are willing to use an escrow, though I would ultimately prefer option #1 (I have the rep)
3)  will sell @ spot price -- a 1:1 trade at market value
4)  live in the USA or Canada

This thread is primarily to gauge supply, but I am looking to buy in upcoming days/weeks if market conditions look good to me.

Post a reply or PM me if you meet these criteria and are looking to potentially exchange gold/silver for BTC.  My hope is that there are some of you that have some gold/silver but do not have easy access to obtaining BTC without paying a ton of fees to send money all over the place to get them.
1434  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: 51%! who is this minner? on: May 02, 2012, 05:28:58 PM
Source of this chart...?!
It's the "other unknown" miner of course! Roll Eyes

Im guessing about 50% of that "unknown" is Deepbit.

i just noticed deep bit is not labeled on this chart... it use to be.

I've noticed this chart goes screwy a lot.  Sometimes Deepbit looks like it has about 65% of the network, other times it isn't labeled.  I also don't ever recall seeing ABC pool (~800 G/hash) on there.

Have you set up a new account to log into? If so I think you might be able to recover the wallet.dat.

 Yes I am on my computer I made a new account I am Administrator. So of course I am logged into this new account but when I clicked my bitcoin client I don't have my btc. How can I recover the wallet.dat?

Did you create a backup wallet.dat?
