1  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: What will happen to u confirmed transactions? on: December 03, 2015, 02:14:47 AM
i need to say that a waiting for 6+ hours to get confirmation is pure shit..
and that is something that needs to be changed.. if its by ddos attack something needs to be made..
like this im waiting for longer then transfering fiat money.. xD
Would just like to point out that you are correct that 6+ hours is a long time for a simple local transaction, but it is an amazing speed for an international transaction.  Especially considering that the network is still in beta, was experiencing an attack, and that the fee paid was less than four cents.

Did you also move the chainstate folder?

Last I heard, Bitcointalk was preventing people from registering who were using known Tor exit nodes, but not blocking registered accounts which were accessed through Tor.  (Not quite sure on this, would like to see someone to confirm)

You can use -datadir=<dir>.  See:https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin#Command-line_arguments

In the "mirroring" mode, dont you lose space and speed? Whats the difference between having that and a backup hdd?
Yes you lose space, but not speed.  I've read you may actually have a slight gain in reed speed, but that's irrelevant.  The difference is it's a mirror, not a backup, so if you delete something it is deleted from both hdd's.  However, you have the benifit of being able to replace a drive if it dies while still using the computer.  It will be slower while the RAID arrays rebuilds, but in a business the lack of downtime is important.

@RoadStress: I don't mean to ignore you, I just don't know the answer to your question.  I would love to see a seperate topic started on this.  So if you start one, please link to it in this thread or send me a pm.

RAID arrays are not always used for speed.  They can be used for:
Quote from: Wikipedia
   To make the loss of data happen less often. This is done by having several copies of the data.
    To get more storage space by having many smaller disks.
    To get more flexibility (Disks can be changed or added while the system keeps running)
    To get the data more quickly.
So again, in response to:
Raid setups are always less safe!
I say:
Depending on the RAID level used a RAID array can be dramatically safer than independent disks.

You're correct in saying that RAID 0 is less safe than independent disks as you will lose the data on all disks rather than just one if one fails.  However, my previous statement is still true:
Depending on the RAID level used, a RAID array can be dramatically safer than independent disks.
For example RAID 1, which mirrors the data on the disks, is much safer than simply using independent disks.  RAID 5, 6, and 1+0 also incorporate various levels of redundancy, while independent disks do not.

Have you tried using
Code:
--skip-online-check
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Bitcoin -qt move Blockchain on: January 06, 2015, 04:04:04 PM
You shouldn't have to reindex it.  It should be possible to simply copy over the \Bitcoin folder and add the -datadir= command to your shortcut.

I'm not sure where you heard this, but it is not true.  Depending on the RAID level used a RAID array can be dramatically safer than independent disks.

Received payment without a hitch from the new sig campaign. Cheesy
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: how do buyer know double spend? on: December 25, 2014, 06:20:46 PM
will be detected as double spend?
Yes, just wait for a couple of confirmations.

will he knows that he pays for 1 person?
I'm not sure what your asking here.  Do you mean can he only pay one person with the same coins (and not double spend)?  If so the answer is yes.

will transaction will be safe for me? i mean buyer cant cancel the transaction
Yes it's safe, once you have the coins the buyer cannot reverse the transaction.

If it ever reaches 2TB, I'll have an excuse to build myself a larger RAID array (and maybe the funds too Wink).
15  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: How to setup Armory to work while Bitcoin Core runs through Tor on: December 24, 2014, 05:39:00 PM
This setup does not seem to work on Mac OS.  Having followed the above guidance, Bitcoin Core returns the following error on launch:

"Cannot parse configuration file: the options configuration file contains an invalid line '{\rtf\ansi\ansicpg1252\cocoartf1343\cocoasubrtf160'.Only use key=value syntax"

...and then quits out of the launch process.

Answer for those who come after me (thanks to key help from picobit):

The Mac OS text editor is setup to operate with rich text and if one changes the bitcoin file extension to .conf from .rtf it won't change the format of the content, thus generating the above reported error.  Thus one must:

1.  Set TextEdit for plain text in the New Document pane of TextEdit preferences AND...
2.  Open the Save dialog, choose Customize Encoding List from the drop-down menu for Plain-Text Encoding, add Western (ASCII) as an option, and choose that option for saving the bitcoin.conf file in Users/<Username>/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin

The bitcoin.conf file you create/edit with TextEdit should contain the (ASCII) text suggested by the OP in the first post of this thread.  
Nice work! Cheesy  I have added the relevant information to the how to. Cool

I you only have
Code:
listen=1
in your bitcoin.conf file then Bitcoin Core won't be connecting through Tor.  Can you explain what you mean by "can't sync for some reason"?  Also, are you able to get Bitcoin Core running with Tor if you're not using Armory?
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: airgap wallet not totally safe? on: December 24, 2014, 03:04:39 PM
I believe the problem is not malware infecting your computer through the the power cable, but existing malware leaking information through the power cable.

0.0042 for first week for me.

Not really Worth it...

I'll wait a little bit to see if rules change for hero members.

I don't want to feel that I have to post more  Grin
lol you posted only 6 posts in whole week Tongue


That's exactly my point.

I dont want to post more because of this Campaign, but post when Ihave somthing to say.

Some of my old posts are still consulted because they have some technical value.
Agreed. Wink  I have a how-to thread which is now approaching 20,000 views:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=623868.0
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Wallet Compatibility on: December 22, 2014, 09:05:37 PM
I was wondering, is a MultiBit created wallet compatible with Bitcoin-QT?

No, but it's easy enough to send coins from one client to the other.  Also, if you need to, you can import you private keys into Bitcoin Core.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: windows has closed port 8333 EDIT - database corrupt problems. on: December 20, 2014, 04:30:10 PM
Well, If the database corrupt, maybe your hdd is needed to be repaired.
I think you should use chkdsk to identify & correct your hdd.
^This was my first thought as well: http://www.w7forums.com/threads/how-to-use-chkdsk-check-disk.448/.
