I'd probably be going for Ubuntu, the latest LTS version, whichever that is.

With regards VPS processing, it wont be continuos, but in requests. A request comes in, some signatures need to be made or verified, a reply is made, done. That work well enough on the vps? Also, can I have 2 cores?

That would work fine with the VPS, I believe. I can't give you a specific number of cores but I could give you core affinity, disallowing others from using those cores. But in the end I believe the best thing would be to just allow you to fully take advantage of the 4 core system (minus the VM penalty) when needed. This all boils down to not allowing other VPSs on the same machine to hog the system, which should be a simple case of giving your kvm process a better niceness value.

The multi core performance of KVM is not completely linear, though, and the only way to go about this is by doing real tests. If I provide you with a VPS instance are you equipped to run performance tests?

Nope, not for a while. At this point in time we would be working on basic functionality. Performance issues due to traffic would be a great problem for us to have. I'm just trying to find out what my options would be if we did have to scale up.

To give you an idea of what you'd be up against competition wise, the alternative kalyhost has is their power option vps (although we may possibly go for the medium option)  https://www.kalyhost.com/vps.html

We will be launching a bitcoin stock exchange in less than 2 weeks, you can use this to get your capital if you can wait. It will seriously cut down on administration with investors and remove the need for a minimum investment.

nelisky, thanks for getting back to me so quick.

If we can pay for the dedicated machine with bitcoin (and it's around those specs I mentioned or more-ish ) then please get a quote.

I actually don't know if the service will be cpu bound, but if it gets a little busy it'll certainly be cpu intensive, with lots of RSA signing and verifying for nearly each request.
2325  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: What dedicated hosting is available for bitcoin? on: April 09, 2011, 03:07:10 PM
TheKid, thanks that's not really what were looking for at the moment, we don't mind paying if we get what we need.

nelisky, you know to be honest I don't really care if it's vps as long as it doesn't effect the sites reliability or performance in any negative way.

How come there seems to be no shortage of VPS's for btc but no dedicated hosting ATM?

What I would need would be at least dualcore(with a reasonable amount of cache), 2Gigs RAM and at least 100Gb storage space with the option of increasing if needed.

What are your prices and SLA's? And how do you compare to kalyhost(we have a vps with them for running a dev server)?

2326  Economy / Trading Discussion / What dedicated hosting is available for bitcoin? on: April 09, 2011, 01:15:03 PM
Looking for a dedicated host, had a quick look at the trade page on the wiki, and a service exoware.net seems to offer it, but on checking their site they dont mention bitcoin.

Does anyone know if they accept bitcoin? Or who else does?

Thats actually quite a good question. I would also like to know if this is still the same situation?

Actually Kiba, I suspect you could use the stock exchange to raise funds for this, set up an organisation and sell shares(ownership) in it to raise the capital to develop the game, then the company can generate income by running a server for the game, charge a monthly fee or something with bitcoin. May dividend payments to shareholders of profit.

You might want to wait about a week and a 1/2 when BitcoinGlobal (my company, with several prominent co-investors and board members) launches the Global Bitcoin Stock Exchange, it's not just for shares but will allow you to monetize(for bitcoin) any contract you can imagine, from bonds, loans, to futures contracts.

We're going to start open testing in the next few days, pm me if you want in.

You have lovely deep voice.

Somewhat aware of the problem. I expect it's with the size of the files or timing out of the request with the upload. The site was developed just as a quick project to test out bitcoind integration and I didn't expect it to become the only btc file hosting service that seems to still be around. What happened to the others?

There's currently a max filesize upload limit of 2mb and a maximum timeout of 300seconds(or 5 minutes). If either of those are exceeded then it will fail.
Well that explains why my students have been having so much trouble with it.

Is there any way to increase the file size to something more significant, if you need more disk space I'll gladly forward some btc to help cover the initial costs.

I just had a look at the free sample, when it's downloaded you need to changed the file extension to .pdf to view.

I must say it looks very nicely done I'm quite impressed. With a health food recipe in it too.
2333  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Making it easy for merchants to accept Bitcoin as payment on: April 09, 2011, 04:57:22 AM
A merchant gateway better that MyBitcoin's or MtGox's would be useful.

Can you define "better"?

Definitely interested in hearing ideas...



Easier to use/integrate into a website , possibly without the need for more than a line or two of html

Say someone sets up an account on such a system, to sell a new product they enter the product id an price, the site then gives them a line of html to put on the products page.
When the products page is viewed through a browser it shows a "Buy with bitcoin" button.

I'm out of time, so could someone else finish this narration?

They won't come for any of us. I know where all of those bankers live.

It turns out that bankers sure like masks and fuzzy handcuffs. Tongue


I was wondering what you were talking about, and then I realised you own the bitcoin sextoy store (right?)
2335  Economy / Marketplace / Re: 20 Bitcoin for a good name on: April 08, 2011, 03:13:56 AM
OK, that's it everyone, thank you for your effort, I finally came up with it myself.

The name for the exchange will be:
GLobal
Bitcoin
Stock
Exchange

GLBSE, or the glibsee, I've already gotten the .org, .com, and .net domains
>_<  I totally read that "Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Stock Exchange".

 Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Wow did I miss that, oh well.
2336  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Amsterdam - Bitcoin at one free hackmeeting + another conference on: April 08, 2011, 01:47:32 AM
Ok I guess I had a wrong impression then.  My bad.

Somehow it seems that you're working for the "ennemy" though.  Think about it.



Not really, in that audience there are going to be 1-2 people (at least) who get it, and will jump on this thing and pump resources into it.

The ones that don't get it will be burned up when the meteor hits like the dinosaurs they are.

eMansipater has gotten his 10bitcoins, that leaves another 10 still up for grabs.

Futures trading (on almost anything) will be a major feature of BitcoinGlobals(my company) stock market, which will be launching in the next couple of weeks.

Actually graingert, a lot of people have been having trouble with bitcoinservice.co.uk at least from China anyway.
