For sake of argument, can we at least just see if his Sagehood is merited via the one post in the OP, negating the rest?
822  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Add information in a Block/Blockchain? on: May 18, 2014, 07:59:37 AM
How can one add information to a block?

Sorry if my question sounds dumb, I just don't understand how that is possible.

Step 1.
Create a non-standard transaction that includes the information that you want in the transaction output.

Step 2.
Find a mining pool that is willing to confirm non-standard transactions.

Step 3.
Submit your transaction to the mining pool.

Step 4.
Wait for the mining pool to confirm your transaction.

Done.


Build a mega mining pharm to guarantee more blocks solved for your pool, having paid contracts in hand to dump whatever you were paid to dump into the block with no questions asked. The more unscrupulous the operator, the better. And, if you find a desirable person that fits the bill, but they play too fair, have a couple hookers at the ready to seduce their ass, of which afterwards blackmail them into complying because they have a wife and family to protect (not speaking of harm, but that's probably not outta the question).

How close am I?

BTW, I've only had four hours sleep in the past 48 hours thanks to researching this shit, taking shits, and talking shit with various people over the telephony. Why the fuck isn't Europe, et al. not on the same time zone as I?

Gavin was, and is fine financially, with his skill sets in high demand, so no worries there. Although I've been a tad critical of him, until something concrete manifests itself, he's probably trustworthy, putting the CIA, et al. meetings aside.
824  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What's your dream gift?(I might get one for you) on: May 18, 2014, 04:29:50 AM
My wife and I are trying to have a baby.  Not very successful so far.  We're trying fertility treatments, but it's not working yet.  Can you put a word in with a reliable stork?  I think they'll take Bitcoin.   Smiley

Trying eating tomatoes every day. It's got lots of Carotene.

And limit your hot tub sessions. (seriously)

The official start of The Bitcoin Foundation was here:

Bitcoin is revolutionary because it is decentralized, with no single point of control or failure.

However, over the last six months or so it has become obvious to me that the rest of the world isn't set up to interact with a radically decentralized system like Bitcoin, and I think forming a not-for-profit organization will be a positive step towards Bitcoin's long-term success.

I'm posting this to see if there is a consensus on what a Bitcoin Foundation should be.

To get the conversation started, here are some functions I think a Bitcoin Foundation could perform:

  • Interact with the legal system, where a centralized entity is needed: for example, to hold the Bitcoin trademark, own/control the bitcoin.org domain name, etc.
  • Act as a central library for accurate information about Bitcoin, so journalists and policymakers have an 'official' place to learn about Bitcoin.
  • Collect donations to fund infrastructure necessary for Bitcoin's growth (organize regular developers' conferences or get-togethers maybe? pay for development of cross-implementation testing tools? pay core developers' salaries? create a certification/testing program for Bitcoin implementations? create a central clearinghouse for information about legal issues surrounding Bitcoin across the world?)

Other not-for-profit organizations that could be emulated:

  • The Anti-Phishing Working Group (the APWG's chairman, David Jevans http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Jevans, is willing to help make a Bitcoin Foundation happen).
  • The Tor Project
  • The Apache Software Foundation

Are there others that work well, or are there examples of what NOT to do? Assuming there is rough consensus that a Bitcoin Foundation is a good idea, I would like to get something imperfect up and running quickly, with the expectation that it will evolve over time.

..................................................


Gavin - seems like a reasonable idea.

Bitcoin would still have all the advantages of being decentralized (no central server, no office to raid and shut down. etc), but gets the added advantages of a core organization to guide it. Perhaps the core organization will get destroyed by the evil powers, but I'm not sure that'd be incredibly damaging to Bitcoin as a protocol. The community would just grow a new command center when the old was destroyed.

The main danger is if the community trusts such an organization too much.  For example- if everyone assumed the client version put out by the organization was trustworthy, then there is serious danger. A group as you propose should probably exist, but the community should remain skeptical of it, and always constructively critical.

Can we hear more about this "follow the money". Perhaps in its own thread or here if you wish.


Take a gander at this thread, it'll bring you up to speed:

Sorry for being such a stalker PG, I used reverse google image search with your image and this video came up.

A full "Let's Talk Bitcoin!" interview with you from last year.

It was quite interesting to be honest and thaugh I should share that.

Not that image, for everybody already knows that's me. The first image. Who's the dude with my (soon to be) Kayden?
829  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Finally! One of the top porn stars accepts and promotes Bitcoin. on: May 18, 2014, 03:05:27 AM
Anybody figure out who this dude is yet so that I can see if Kayden is still with him?



I'm looking for a new Master since my Stephy (Coin) left me while we were in Vegas. The last words I ever heard her spoke was to some dude around the corner: "Let's Talk Bitcoin."

830  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: ▌«!» ▌ Bye bye Bitcoin Foundation, now WE control the Bitcoin! on: May 18, 2014, 02:55:01 AM
Did they ever have control of bitcoins Huh

The coup d'état is currently in progress. Please step aside and let us through. BTW, if you're not planning on using that broomstick, can we borrow it?
831  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: $100,000 Bounty for Software that Replaces the Bitcoin Foundation on: May 18, 2014, 02:48:30 AM
Are you sure $100K USD is enough? Remember, theymos doled out $350K USD as a down payment of the $1M USD total to upgrade this forum several months ago. To date, nobody can yet update their avatar image. But, perhaps, the developer is holding that aspect fix hostage till the ransom of another $350K USD is paid. Seems, everybody wants to be a terrorist these days.

Note to self: Don't make a habit of penning the words hostage, ransom and terrorist in the same post, for it fucks with the NSA too badly.

Also: $100,000; one million; down payment; $1,000,000; $350,000; fix; payment; developer; paid; Dole; avatar; image; days; everybody; or theymos.  Grin

Sorry Phinn, don't get me wrong, I usually take good notice on the posts/advice you give in these forums but....
why is this important for Bitcoin?Huh?
Because porn was one of the most inportant factors in winning BetaMax vs VHS and BluRay vs HD-DVD wars.

If porn industry heavily adopts some technology, the technology becomes unstoppable. Like with prostitution.

Bro sorry if I sound like a bitch but its Important, not inportant.

And indeed it is.....

Now apart from the crap I wrote above, does any of you guys here know about Real Touch?

Oh... here: http://www.realtouch.com/



Please be informed that we will no longer be able to sell RealTouch Devices as of January 1, 2014. RealTouch Interactive and VOD will continue to serve existing customers.
^^^ I'm not looking to buy one, but am curious why they will no longer be able to sell RealTouch Devices anymore?
Does anyone see why?


EDIT: Found it...
Due to increasing licensing and manufacturing costs we will not be able to sell RealTouch Devices effective January 1, 2014. The RealTouch product uses a very small amount of technology licensed from a technology partner and without this license in place we are unable to sell the RealTouch Device. Costs of manufacturing have also escalated significantly in the last year. After nearly a year of discussion and negotiation we have been unable to reach agreements that would allow us to continue the project at this time.

Wait, what! Then who did I give my credit card info to an hour ago when I ordered two (dude, one's a gift, so don't even go there)? You just can't trust anybody these days I guess.

That said, who wants to look at dirty pictures on the internet?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNbrMxDocmw#t=213

Damn, this sucks! Looks like Kayden Kross is already taken. Anybody know this dude so that maybe he can be talked into giving her up?



I think she gets taken at every show Bruno. Produce a XXX starring her and she is yours Wink

Or, put her on stage co-hosting an event with fellow bitcoiners in attendance.  Wink Co-hosting may be a bad idea though, considering she'll app to share the mic with her fellow co-host.  Wink Wink If only she had gotten introduced to Bitcoin sooner.  Wink Wink Wink

It saddens me to announce that as soon as a certain product I just ordered arrives, I probably will no longer have time for this forum. Thanks for the ride.

Until then...

I apologize beforehand, but there is a rule about posting NSFW images, bud. Nice pics, though, but please remove for obvious reasons, then only link to the pics with the NSFW disclaimer.

The worst PR Bitcoin can get. I fucking hate the bitcoin foundation and I fucking hate all you people who find excuses for Brock Pierce.
You are the same assholes who naively posted "Oh no, everything is fine with Mt.Gox, its just a bug. They will soon reenable withdrawals and then we go to the moon!"


And we should never forget the names of these board members of the Bitcoin Foundation. They sat on their ass when their fellow board member, Mark Karpeles, raped the Bitcoin community.
Spread the word!

Xtib

In case you're wondering who the hell could be responsible for Mark Karpeles' controversial replacement...



This post would be so motherfuckin' hilarious if not for the fact it's true.

Interesting fact: The video from which the image above was gleaned was shot only yards away from where that FBI plane ran outta gas in the movie Casino.

SOB! Some of my fans on onto the way I think. Surely, you don't believe that this innocent thread is connected in any way, shape or form with any other threads I may have penned recently, do you?  Wink

For, if that were the case, one may argue that all my past half-dozen or so threads are all related. Again, surely, that can't be the case, can it?  Wink Wink

Only reasonable intelligent friends and business partners of mine don't fuck goats.  Wink Wink Wink

Actually....

I thought you posted this thread because....
You have discovered that some highly qualified actors had discovered that they do NOT want to get f*cked over nothing and wanted something of value in return for their services.


I had no idea goats where involved....
Do the goats get paid in Bitcoin?Huh  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin
 

Sadly, no goats. Just your everyday, good ol' fashion porn, some of which being of the adult kind is involved.  Cry BTW, do you having any idea why bitcoin transactions have been takin' longer to get confirmed of late?  Wink

Because a lot of people watch porn, and paying with bitcoin is anonymous, so that your parents don't know you are paying with your credit card, instead, you can use Bitcoin.

Sorry took a while to edit my post, slow inet conn....

Still waiting for a response for my trick question....

Apologize for the delay, and what's up with that OWL? This is becoming one weird-ass forum.  Roll Eyes
