So does anybody know the approx wait time to get in? (And Sub'd)

There are hundreds of people on the wait list.  There's no way to approximate the wait time, but if you just signed up for the wait list, I can assure you it'll be a long time before you get invited.

How do you know?

Well, I'm pretty sure, unless zux0r was lying when he said:
Code:
[6:14 PM] <zux0r> we have hundreds on the list that have been waiting
Also:
Code:
[10:19 PM] <zux0r> nushor[A], sorry, there are hundreds of people ahead of you

Do I sense attitude?

Cool the coins are retured, etc etc  but can we lock this so it doesn't keep getting bumped up - it's closed and finished with now. Thanks.

well the last post was from the very person who sent the coins so that is rather relevant, especially as it was him & not goat who decided to send only 400 coins out of the 3,000 as a test tx, personally I find locking threads to often be a pain - much better to let them gradually fade off as some later feedback or similar situations may be of interest to resurrect them, if you're personally done with the little drama then just skip looking at any updated posts np - I do this with many threads, mark all as read when they pop up in the list of updated one's that I posted in

sry for bumping it again  Grin
I wish I could mark individual threads read without reading them. That would be a good compromise.

yep, we all wish to be able to un-follow threads that we once posted in without having to go back & delete all our posts in it to do so, one day maybe  Smiley

Just delete the email and don't visit the thread again.

That doesn't fix the unread message link.  Wink 

Yeah, I just bumped it for all of you haters. =P

It even comes with a little red button. What happens if you press the little red button?   Shocked

It resets the blockchain.

Pirate, please excuse me If this question has been asked. Do you run a currency exchange operation?

Regards,


Please read the entire thread before asking questions that have already been answered.

Right, read 275+ comments and scroll through 14 pages to find the answer to a question. I am going outside now.

You can't click on "All" and search the page in your browser?  Do you realize what a pretentious waste of time that makes you?

The all link eventually disappears on longer threads, although it is still visible on this one.

The lazy Starfish likes the poll and has actually said interest rate is a bit high.

However, before someone shoots me, I'm thinking about the longer term and not the nice ride that the past six months has delivered.  There are some structural things that can be done to improve the whole deposit/interest rate trade-off to promote the business, and while 7% is nice for another month, even if it was 5% for another six months that would be better.

1- I only get 5.6%, so, what's your beef?
2- You talk like that because you're making money from the GLBSE speculators

Stop messing around with others business. If Pirate is getting all this unwarranted attention he can thank you and your PPT buddies.
If you wish a lower interest rate, be my guest: withdraw all your money and put it in a bank or on hashking program.



Pirate was getting all sorts of attention long before PPT.  We are trying to counter Pirate risk by offering the insurance.

Yes he was, from lenders. Now he gets attention from jealous haters.
Nice try tho. Did I touch a soft spot? Sorry, I have the tendency to do that...
Also, your insurance is a joke from a mathematical perspective. You can fool the fools, or even fool yourself, but you don't fool me.

nice attitude, but no, you didn't touch a soft spot.  Haters are gonna hate, regardless.  Insurance is a joke?  If pirate defaults, people get .32 btc per bond.  There's no gimmick to it and its better than getting nothing.

You math and logic are flawed, but similar in tone to many of your other forum posts which I find generally negative. Therefore, to point out the situation a little more clearly, to reserve coins rather than investing them may lower your payout and your claim that anyone paying more than 1.02 would be better off else where is not true.

Case 1, invest 110 coins in PPT at a buy in price of 1.05
Payout is either 128 coins for a profit of 24 coins, or in the event of a default, you receive 32 coins for a net loss of 88.

Case 2, Also starting with 110 coins, reserve 32 coins as self insurance, and put 88 coins into an uninsured scheme.
Position is either 32 + 78 * 1.28 = 134 (also a profit of 24) including weekly compounding, or you retain the 32 coins you started with.

There is a cross-over point, but in case #2 you have two single person points of default (Pirate and whoever your middle-man is).  In case #1, the PPT founders have more at stake than just the PPT business.  People have chosen to value these factors.

Also, in reference to Otoh's point, we have quite a lot of backup, hence Burt is off holidaying, and I'm doing the redemption (2560 coins shortly) and bond sale (3000) this week because it is not automatic.

Your point seems valid, but I'm not understanding your math. How does a payout of 128 coins from an investment of 110 coins generate 24 coins in profit? Unless standard base 10 notation has changed without me noticing, 128 - 110 = 18.

110 coins invested at a buy price of 1.05 is 104.xxx bonds.  Let's round up since you can't buy fractional bonds.  so 110.xx coins invested at a buy price of 1.05 is 105 bonds.  105 bonds with a redeem price of 1.28 = 134.4 btc.  Since you bought with 110 coins, your profit is 24.4 btc.  Insurance is .32 per bond in the case of a default, so 105 bonds @ .32 = 33.6 btc.

Didn't you ever notice that "I control your machine," is an anagram of "GPUMax rocks" in Akkadian?  And of course we all know that the Cajuns are the Akkadians who came to America when the Sea Peoples left the Mediterranean after the collapse of Atlantis.

Didn't you ever notice that "El cat knows things: rum, poxrot" is an anagram of "GPUMax controls this network". And in English, too.



If you're going to bite off my awesome, at least step it up a notch.  Your point-missing skills aren't just limited to sports.

These threads are inevitable annoyances.  I'm arrogating to myself the authorship of "Pirate's Law": As an online discussion regarding pirateat40, btcst, GPUMax, or projects to be referred to as M, P, and X grows longer, the probability of speculation and accusation of unethical or criminal activity approaches is 1.

FTFY

You're making assumptions.  That's only going to get you hurt.  Very few people have reinvested the whole time without taking profit.

Are you wanting specifically all Gigabyte or would a Visiontek and/or XFX be an ok substitute for a couple of them ?  I have two Gigabytes out for RMA right now and I already sold one of the original 6, so I'd like to avoid breaking apart a running rig if I don't have to.

I've heard mixed reviews about the XFX.  I sent you a pm.

I'll give you the other points as valid concerns, esp coming up toward summer, but no resale value? Really? Video cards have an entire other market that coexists (or overlaps, depending on how you look at it) with miners: gamers. You can always sell video cards. FPGAs? There is no other market for crazy fast SHA256 hashers.

I can sorta see where ur coming from, but I think you have it all wrong...

People are paying insane amounts for a BFL single right now.

Some people ordered them when they looked like a scam. Now if you want to have a single tomorrow you need to pay like $800 or more. Their value is increased compared to initial cost to buy the FPGA ( $599 ).

I would love to see you buy a 7970 from the egg for $450 and sell it on here for $650 or something.

FPGA has resale value as long as BTC is not dead ...

Why would you resell the FPGA as long as BTC is not dead?  You buy it for the mining.  They can only be flipped so many times before the price for flipping is so high that you're back at the only reason you'd guy it is for mining.

why not do this on testnet?

Because with testnet, you can generate 50 bitcoins in about 30 seconds.  People would start mining on it and drive up difficulty, making it more difficult for people legitimately trying to use testnet for client transactions, pool software, etc

1097  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Problems running 3+ GPUs (bounty) on: May 25, 2012, 01:34:15 PM
On Windows I had better luck running 5+ GPUs using the 12.x drivers but it was never stable for long periods of time if at all.

You may not want to hear it but if you want to run more then 4 reliably you might have better luck jumping to Linux. I have run 8 for weeks on end with anywhere between 4 (4x5970)and 6 (2x5970 4x5870) physical cards and everything works great.

I run many, many 6 GPU rigs under Windows x64, 11.12 drivers.  They run stable for weeks at a time.  They only time they get restarted is to update cgminer when I need to.  I don't think the OS is the issue, rather its some combination of either the drivers, gpu bios, and/or board.

At LEAST 10%.
1100  Economy / Securities / Re: [GLBSE] MORE Pirate Pass Through Bonds! on: May 25, 2012, 01:15:34 PM
Interesting that people still seem to want to throw money at you - for 1.08 offers you only get ~18% per month, where other offers pay weekly and pay out over 28% compounded per month or 26% uncompounded. This would mean that everyone who bids more than 1.02 would be better off elsewhere. The only difference is the "insurance" - but this can basically be overcome by simply investing less in pirate and keeping some BTC for yourself.

Considering the competition, do you plan on changing your contracts soon (e.g. weekly payouts, no limit on share amount issued) or will you keep running like this?

I think many people forget that PPT is issued by some of the most respected people in the lending forum.  It wouldn't be just a matter of 1 person not honoring the agreement, but all six.  How many other issuers have that?
