Specifically, the proxy times out in the middle of displaying the image if any of the following are true:
- More than 3 seconds have elapsed since the image data first started being downloaded.
- No response is received for 3 seconds.
- Your server sends a total of more than 20 packets containing no image data.
1162  Other / Meta / Re: Images now proxied on: January 18, 2014, 08:46:20 PM
Some of the plots I have posted here (as PNG files) appear truncated on this site.

I believe that that can only happen if:
- Your server is taking too long to return the entire image.
- Your server gives an incorrect Content-Length.
- Your server gives no Content-Length and your image is above the 2.5 MB size limit.

Otherwise, the proxy will detect errors before it starts returning the image.

The forum sells ad space in the area beneath the first post of every topic page. About 25% of ad income goes to the forum moderators as thanks for all of their work. (There are many moderators, so each moderator gets only a small amount -- moderators should be seen as volunteers, not employees.) The rest is stored in the forum's treasury (verifiably), where it sits until the forum needs it.

Ads are allowed to contain any non-annoying HTML/CSS style. No images, JavaScript, or animation (no marquee or blinking). Ads must appear 3 or fewer lines tall in my browser. Ads will be prefixed with "Advertisement:". Ad text may not contain lies, misrepresentation, or inappropriate language. Ads may not link directly to any NSFW page. Ads may be rejected for other reasons.

There are 10 total ad slots which are randomly rotated. So one ad slot has a one in ten chance of appearing. Seven of the slots are for sale here. Ads appear only on topic pages with more than one post, and only for people using the default theme.

The ad lasts at least 7 days starting from when I put it up. (However, if you look at the ad history you'll see that ads frequently get 1-2 extra days, but this is random and definitely not guaranteed.)

Ad blocking

Hero members, Donators, VIPs, and moderators have the ability to disable ads. I don't expect many people to use this option. These people don't increase the impression counts for your ads.

I try to bypass Adblock Plus filters as much as possible, though this is not guaranteed. It is difficult or impossible for ABP filters to block the ad space itself without blocking posts. However, filters can match against the URLs in your links, your CSS classes and style attributes, and the HTML structure of your ads.

To prevent matches against URLs: I have some JavaScript which fixes links blocked by ABP. You must tell me if you want this for your ads. When someone with ABP and JavaScript enabled views your ads, your links are changed to a special randomized bitcointalk.org URL which redirects to your site when visited. People without ABP are unaffected, even if they don't have JavaScript enabled. The downsides are:
- ABP users will see the redirection link when they hover over the link, even if they disable ABP for the forum.
- Getting referral stats might become even more difficult.
- Some users might get a warning when redirecting from https to http.

To prevent matching on CSS classes/styles: Don't use inline CSS. I can give your ad a CSS class that is randomized on each pageload, but you must request this.

To prevent matching against your HTML structure: Use only one <a> and no other tags if possible. If your ads get blocked because of matching done on something inside of your ad, you are responsible for noticing this and giving me new ad HTML.

Auction rules

Post your bids in this thread. Prices must be stated in BTC per slot. You must state the max number of slots you want. When the auction ends, the highest bidders will have their slots filled until all seven slots are filled.

So if someone bids for 7 slots @ 5 BTC and this is the highest bid, then he'll get all 7 slots. If the two highest bids are 7 slots @ 4 BTC and 1 slot @ 5 BTC, then the first person will get 6 slots and the second person will get 1 slot.

The notation "2 @ 5" means 2 slots for 5 BTC each. Not 2 slots for 5 BTC total.

- When you post a bid, the bids in your previous posts are considered to be automatically canceled. You can put multiple bids in one post, however.
- All bid prices must be evenly divisible by 0.05.
- The bidding starts at 0.50.
- I will end the auction at an arbitrary time no more than 12 days from now. (I will probably end the auction 1-3 days before the ads are scheduled to go up.)
- If two people bid at the same price, the person who bid first will have his slots filled first.
- Bids are considered invalid and will be ignored if they do not specify both a price and a max quantity, or if they could not possibly win any slots

If these rules are confusing, look at some of the past forum ad auctions to see how it's done. I also post periodic status updates which should help make things clear.

You must pay for your slots within 24 hours of receiving the payment address. Otherwise your slots may be sold to someone else.

Newbie restrictions can actually be done without any modifications using board permissions if you don't mind promoting users based only on post count. I don't recommend this, though. For promoting users using special conditions, I just disabled the native SMF auto-promote, and I have a cron job that does the promotions.

1174  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Hashfast Scam Timeline (Do not give hashfast your money) on: January 06, 2014, 06:22:27 AM
Here are the deleted posts of HashFast-related accounts. Some of these may have been deleted by moderators.

HashFast promised (and still promises) delivery by Dec 31.

Notice how you deleted the quote that proves you wrong? I'll add it again. It's only 6 words. I know a couple of them have a lot of letters, but try reading it again.

That quote is completely irrelevant.  

The only thing that matters is the Terms of Sale, which states Dec 31 is the guaranteed delivery date.

The Terms of Sale do not include your completely irrelevant quite, which is from an insecure internet forum of all things.   Roll Eyes

Cointerra promised mid December delivery.

It is now mid-December, but their chips aren't even finished.

Cointerra failed; they over-promised a mid-Dec date and under-delivered a late-Jan date instead.

Cointerra knew they couldn't delivery in Dec.  They lied to get our money and we will prove it when we sue them for fraud and false advertising.

Yes, orders can be transferred, but the Miner Protection Program cannot be sold, licensed or transferred by a customer.

This is clearly listed here:  https://hashfast.com/miner-protection-program/

-John



HashFast Technologies is unaware of a deal being done with any entity that would be able to offer these items for sale at these prices with such assurances on any HashFast products.

-John
We've got two powerful pieces of news today for our miners!

https://hashfast.com/were-upping-the-power-on-hashfast-rigs/

-John


Does this upgrade include MPP, would we get up to 4x the 800GH/s ?

Unfortunately, at that price, we cannot offer the Miner Protection Program.
-John

So, I think where I'm looking for more clarity is:


1) Cost of the board/rig required to run additional chips if the MPP gets executed. Do we have a parts manifest for this yet, or a price to outright buy a pre-assembled rig from Hashfast?

2) If anyone from Batch-1 gets additional chips from the MPP, everyone should. Otherwise, there can be situations in which people who are ahead in the shipment queue actually do worse. For example, let's say that the 1st BabyJet from batch-1 goes out on October 25th and has made a slight profit by Jan 23rd; under the current MPP verbiage as I read it, that means no new chips for Owner #1. Let's further say that the 500th BabyJet from batch-1 goes out November 25th, but has just barely not covered costs by Feb 22nd. In this case, the owner of the 500th gets new chips for free, but the owner of the 1st still doesn't. Given the low power consumption of BabyJets, they'll likely be worth running for quite some time, so over that lifetime, the owner of the 500th probably does better. It depends on the exact nature of how the overall network hash-rate curve develops, of course, but it seems to me that the fairest thing to do is to execute the MPP across the entire Batch; ie, if anyone from the batch gets more chips, everyone should.


Can we get some clarity/comments on the above?


In any event, HF seems to be doing great work. Tape-out ~10 days ago, plus the TSMC announcement...good stuff.

Hi Melbus,
These are great questions. I just sent them to engienering, so as to get the best possible answers. I will post here soon.
-John
still waiting for more information regarding their chip and foundry before taking the leap.  I still remember back when Avalon started, they had their TSMC contract for all to see which was great.

Hi, Cara tells me this is resolved. Please let me know if you ahve anyt further issues.  Thanks for your business!
 - John
As a Group Buy Coordinator of 1 co-op owned HashFast BabyJet, I am pleased with the terms and conditions of your MPP. I like the transparency and level of detail.

It should serve as a model for future ASIC rig pre-orders IMO. Anything you can add about the Motherboard specs/availability and institutional pricing for said Mommy boards? [IT Birds N Bees - "See son: "Baby computers are made when a Daddy board and a Mommy board fall in love and..."]

Could be an entrepreneurial opportunity there for someone.  Wink

Thanks!

Details are going to have to wait until after tapeout. (Engineering is busy right now)  
However, we want to encourage others to design rigs for our chips and we are excited about what this community will do with them!

-John

Can you post details of chip communication, pin out, PCB designs, etc to github so that we can get started on designing rigs? It's pretty clear [for anyone who can do basic math] that your MPP is going to be triggered. Those who will be receiving bare chips as part of the MPP will need the additional boards.

Thanks

I can assure you that we will, but not until after tapeout, which is very very soon.

Why would it be hard to allow links that point to the page that is currently open?

AdBlock Plus filters are limited to the language of CSS selectors, which aren't powerful enough to do that. I've arranged things so that it's impossible to isolate the forum ad area using CSS selectors without also grabbing useful content as well. This is the second time that EasyList maintainers carelessly tried to block forum ads without checking whether it can be done safely...

It's a bug in EasyList for Adblock Plus. All links (including "anchor" links) are blocked when immediately inside of a post <td>:
Code:
bitcointalk.org##td[style="padding: 1px 1px 0 1px;"] > a

Complain to EasyList.

It's impossible for an Adblock Plus filter to block all of the forum's ads. Some ads can be individually blocked, but not all forum ads in general. They should stop trying or they're going to keep breaking things for their users.
