I desire to ship to them a piece of barn wood, specially distressed so that a black felt tipped pen can write on it. The goal being that as they connect with fellow bitcoiners or others, they'll have the option of signing the board. Once the couple settle into their first home, they'll be able to hang the board from the ceiling in such a way to enable them to view the signatures and notes on the front, back, and even on the one inch sides.

The length of the board will be predicated on the maximum allowed dimensions that can be shipped. The width will be six to eight inches, having a one inch thickness. It will be distressed in some shade of antique white. Maybe having a package of multi colored markers on hand oppose to only a black one would be a better idea.

Consider it a memento of the trip for years to come.

Hey guys, the evil meta tag is still there:

    <meta name='robots' content='noindex,nofollow' />

This meta tag needs to be removed. There is a setting in Wordpress which allows you to be indexed in the search engines, that should be enabled. If you use some funky theme plugin, sometimes there are option there too. As long as this issue persists you have zero exposure on any search engine. It's REALLY BAD for publicity.

Life on Bitcoin

I partnered with a few friends to work on a feature-length documentary following a newly married couple living solely off of bitcoin for their first 90 days of marriage. I created the website and developed some tracking tools to monitor the real-time progress of the crowdfunding campaign.

Wow! When I set up WP sites, one of the first things I do within 60 seconds is tick/untick the robot box. In fact, by default its configured for the search engines to spider the site. One has to manually/purposely tick the box so that that's no longer the case.

Hey guys. Just noticed lifeonbitcoin.com is not indexed in Google because you've got wordpress set to not allow search engines to index it. When that's set Wordpress adds a meta-tag that tells the saerch-engines not to index or follow any links. That's REALLY bad for your publicity.


We got your email on this btcdrak. Thank you for the heads up! That is strange. I've forwarded it to Connor our web guy. We'll get this fixed.

That wouldn't be Art Connor by chance, would it?

I'm in Sandwich, IL, and count me in in supporting you if you pass near. There's enough bitcoiners in the states you've mentioned to slingshot to your final destination.

Buy a barn, tear it down, pull the nails, trim the bad, list on CL, and profit $18K in 30 days. BTW, that is profit, for gross would be closer to $25K. Out of the $18K, pay the normal living expenses and buy 4 more barns to repeat and rinse.

Once you become successful, seek out an opportunity to be in position to accept a few hundred dollar bribe.

Bumped, to make sure more eyes read the latest and have the opportunity to vet the latest submission, namely PanPeru, of which I support. In fact, I just sent $20 USD worth from my BFL bribe money to show support. Since BitPay was used where new donation addresses are freshly created for each transaction, I guess I need to provide a link as proof: https://blockchain.info/tx/3349e3ddc0e289efd91423ef5c7e0cc012ba84a53d4760c68b2920b5d355c0c2

Jumping on the necro here, but what are the odd of mistakenly typing in a valid address? Is it a realistic possibility?

No it isn't. There's 1 chance in 4 billion to mistype a valid address.

Plus, why are you manually typing addresses? Wink

No webcam on my pc for scanning QR codes.

Where was this QRC located?

Its pretty awful to start slating the guy when he has clearly been honest and upfront with what he saw and what occurred.

 It's fully justified slating the guy when he's been one of the most vitriolic song-birds who has changed his tune after being effectively bribed.

 It's sad all it took was trip costs, a few drinks and meals, and a sub-par performing miner they could not sell.


No drinks, except coffee, two meals, and sub-par miner. Plus four days of not harvesting barn wood in the wee hours of the morning.

Seriously, it's about time for all to end the bribing talk.

Bruno, I gotta say:  of all the sons of bitches I've encountered in my life, you have to be among the most clever, or the most corrupt.  I'm not sure which.  Or maybe you've been legally enjoined.  Who knows.  In fact, who cares.

The point, is, I'm not going to wait around to find out.  You new online personae was just the right dose of aversion therapy I needed to get me to close the book on the world of bitcoin hardware.

I think I've finally seen everything I need to see to answer the questions I came here with.

The assertion I made before you went down your own rabbit hole still holds:  you should write a book on BFL.  If you don't think, still, they're Preston Tucker at best, or Billy Sol Estes at worst, then you've resolved the uncertainty implied in my first sentence.

Good luck to all on this side of the looking glass.

Out.


I'm neither clever nor corrupt, albeit more clever than corrupt if those were my only two choices.

My dad was an "N" hater all his life. Should I have change my opinion of him the day he said out loud that he's goin' give Obama the benefit of the doubt and a chance to prove himself? Sure seemed odd to me coming from a man he watched O'Reilly, Beck and Hannity nightly.

I've never been an "N" hater, though I've use the word hundreds of times in a racial voice, predicated on whom was present at the time. Should I have disowned my dad for changing his position? How do I know the lying piece of shit wasn't bribed? May he rot in hell urn!

Phin,

It was very honest of you to admit you accepted a hardware gift from BFL. That being said it does put into question your independence. Understood this is not a job for you and your gasoline, wear and tear on your car and accommodations should not have come out of your pocket.

The miner gift was highly unnecessary no matter what condition it was in. You can call it what you want but in my books that was a bribe from BFL without expectations.

oh and BTW when the shit hits the fan again and it will for the Monarch, I'll be here to remind you of what you have become "Turncoat".



Having never accepted a bribe before, is it standard procedure to take the bribe after one has already changed his position?
4431  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BFL fucks us over again on: September 14, 2013, 09:47:44 AM
What is the price for a mans integrity? Apparently, another waiting customers Single. Sad really. You were such a hero for the silenced and disenfranchised. In memory of the original Phin:

Joshua is a liar and thief and Sonny V is a COCKSUCKER crook, that ripped off/scammed senior citizens with his lottery scam.

The End.

If I recall, I was fond of red font, as in raspberry/cherry.
4432  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BFL fucks us over again on: September 14, 2013, 09:45:11 AM
Why doesn't BFL just offer that to all the top haters so this thread can die?

Because its cheaper to brain-wash the loudest voice and turn him into a tool to be used against dissent.

Like I said, Phin is dead to me and ignored.

Let him post some evidence then make a judgement. Not seen anything that puts to rest the 100s of issue he brought up... I'd love to see the answer to the FCC question and countless others but primarily the REFUND questions considering the BFL practice is contrary to FTC regs. Can't see how that can be spun.

even though they have been told for months that all sales are final

Can you point to the FTC regulation that allows for this practice?

Months? Really?
Oh my this will certainly be a nice quote for anyone looking to report BFL to the FTC.
Months... with no set shipping date? Really?

I suspect the FTC might have issue with that statement full stop.

I'm satisfied in regard to the FCC issue, although did not see proof, nor asked. But that doesn't be others should be satisfied because I am.

I honestly didn't inquire about the refund aspect because in my mind I felt it awkward. I did ask about Sonny K. of which my assessment of who he was was confirmed--Sonny V.

Not only wasn't I bribed, I wasn't brain-washed.
4434  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BFL fucks us over again on: September 14, 2013, 09:37:27 AM
Tis a sad sad day when the mocking bird changes its tune.

So Phin, I am not going to judge you about the change of heart on BFL.  What I would like to know is specifically what things were said or seen in that 24hrs that would make you believe that BFL is an upstanding company and things are going to turn around with a quickness.

Nothing you have said so far has any real power to persuade. How about providing us with the facts from your trip that would cause someone else to rethink the matter in an unbiased way. Up to the challenge?

This is going to come as a shock to you, but it didn't happen in 24 hours. More like under 5 minutes, starting with Josh extending his hand to shake the hand of the one who's on record of wanting to stick a broomstick up his ass.

I still have a tad of reservations toward BFL, and when the time comes to express myself, it will be done with a helluva lot more tact.

There should be no reason for the remaining naysayers to be butthurt cause one of their strongest voices is no longer threatening to hurt butt.
4435  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BFL fucks us over again on: September 14, 2013, 09:12:01 AM
You sound like a man that has been bribed. Funny how some mining gear silences people. Why doesn't BFL just offer that to all the top haters so this thread can die?

I'm going to go on record for the forth time: I was not bribed. If I was bribed, I would keep my mouth shut across the board and not declare anything.

Very early on with KnC, I've stuck it up their ass considerably, but later reverse my position sans any so called bribes. Currently, I have little cause for concern about that outfit, whereas I still have slight reservations about BFL, with them not delivery products, albeit late, not being one of them.

PG is to smart, I don't think we should worry.  If BFL launch a miner in walnut and Rosewood, we know what happened!

This is so weird! I used to live on streets named Walnut and Rosewood. Seriously!

That's up to Carlos L. I wouldn't do any business with xDeathwing either, but I'm not going to give him an untrustworthy rating because *I* don't feel it's warranted.

I didn't even consider giving out three scammer tags to three users on this forum who've ordered custom hand tooled leather products from my brother-in-law and didn't pay one satoshi toward the over $500 USD owed going on two years now.

Defendants are informed and believe that in March and April, 2013 MtGox customers, at the suggestion of CoinLab, deposited $12,788,701.08 in to one or more CoinLab bank accounts; CoinLab then caused the amount of such funds to be credited to such customers' MtGox accounts but CoinLab did not transfer the actual funds into the MtGox bank account. As a result, such customers' MtGox account reflected a higher amount of currency funds available to such customers than were actually in the MtGox bank account. In April, 2013, and upon the demand of MtGox, CoinLab transferred a portion of those amounts, $ 7,473,490.29, to the MtGox bank account, leaving a balance of approximately $ 5,315,210.79 to be transferred to the MtGox account and which is being wrongfully held by CoinLab.
