Macbooks can run linux fine Smiley. Then again, not much wrong with OS-X either.

1723  Other / Off-topic / Re: Abolish the Minimum Wage Law on: January 09, 2012, 06:29:47 AM
Anyone who thinks lowering or abolishing minimum wages needs a reality check:



Minimum wages are already near their lowest ever, and if there is a correlation with employment levels and general economic prosperity, it seems opposite.

It has been becoming slower and slower these past days.

Its (extremely) common practice. If it werent for gamblers speculators, btc would likely trade around, if not below $1. I dont really frown upon it, as its inevitable, but jake is correct that this speculation and the resulting insane volatility makes it very hard for bitcoin to gain traction as a trade facilitator. Its a catch 22 really, because volatility attracts gamblers speculators, and speculation creates volatility.

No problems with memory at 300 Mhz on any of my 5850s or 5870. Havent tried any lower.
Funny thing, I do have artifacting at 400 Mhz (and it works fine again at 900 Mh and 1 GHz  Huh).

If you are mining under windows; do a few things:
-disable windows 7 aero theme
-disable flash acceleration in your browser; otherwise any flash or youtube clip is likely to corrupt or crash your desktop.
-use cgminer and do not use ati ccc to control your clocks. In fact, dont even install ccc.
1727  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Where to find info on how to tweak a video card? on: January 08, 2012, 10:25:30 AM
First of all, dont use the most current ATI drivers for mining. They suck. Go back to 11.10 drivers or so.
To manage your videocard fans, clocks, voltages etc, Id recommend installing cgminer. Its a miner app with everything you need to manage the card. It may be a little daunting initially, but if you read the documentation im sure you'll get it figured out.

Also, forget about the 550 for mining. Keep it for gaming if you want, or sell it and buy another ATI card if you want to mine bitcoins.

For the record, rather than just loaning, I rented 1.2 GH from thiago for a month.

I want to repay my debt to you now... I need the mining rig back! lol
Please, read you PM P4man...

Cheers!

Read it and replied.
We agreed on this from the start, that you could pull the plug whenever you wanted and just pay the difference. So go ahead and pull the plug. Send the remainder here:

. They are currently on hour 64 of their current block.. I find that way too much time to be making absolutely nothing.

Funny. My employer think its okay for me to work for 30 days and make absolutely nothing. Then all at once, I get a big paycheck. And I have to wait another 30 days. 

Seriously, whats the problem is not getting daily payments for mining? Do you get daily invoices for your electricity or what?
1730  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: CGMINER miner overclock monitor fanspeed RPC in C linux/windows/osx 2.1.2 on: January 08, 2012, 06:10:24 AM
, and basically the " ./ " in front of the command seemed to be the only thing i was missing.  

Been there, done that. Its a bit weird in linux, but by default the current directory is not in the path, meaning if you try to execute a command or program from the command line, it will look for that command everywhere in the path, but not in the directory you are currently in. "./" means the current directory. Took me a while to get used to that.

If you live in the US, there is a huge chance your jails are run by for profit corporations, and those very same corporations are bribing your government to get as many customers as possible. No country in the world has a higher % of its population behind bars.
1732  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: New AMD driver to support OpenCL on a 4250 on: January 07, 2012, 09:35:29 PM
Hi, I'm sorry, I made a typo.  I'm currently using a HD6850 to get about 250 mh/s.  I'm also using these flags, -v -f 0 -w 128, without the flags it was approximately 235 mh/s. 

That sounds a lot more believable Smiley. If zacate could do 250MH/s, Id buy a container full of them!
On a side note, 250 for a 6850 sounds lowish to me, considering the overclock. Give bitminter a try (see my signature), or perhaps cgminer.
1733  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Eligius-miners: Do you agree with what is done with your hashing power? on: January 07, 2012, 09:30:26 PM
Merged mining only means eglesius pool members wouldnt have been penalized by luke's actions, as in, they wouldnt have suffered BTC or NMC losses. It doesnt mean those pool members didnt involuntarily contribute to the attack on coilcoin.
1734  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Extremly slow minting? on: January 07, 2012, 09:26:11 PM
For example, https://deepbit.net with over 3100 GH/s of hashrate Smiley

And a, what is it,  3 or 4% fee?
The bad luck block has been solved meanwhile, as well as 2 more blocks in the same day averaging miner revenue out already at or maybe above average.

More importantly perhaps, huge pools like deepbit give their operators a dangerous amount of control over bitcoin.  Luke Jr take down of coilcoin shows this potential. I think its better for cryptocurrencies if hash rate is spread out as much as possible, which is one reason Ill never mine for a pool with more than ~20% of the hashrate.
1735  Economy / Speculation / Re: highest volume ever on: January 07, 2012, 09:08:46 PM

When will this meme die?  Bitcoin doesn't need to (and probably will not) become a "mainstream currency" that your grandma uses to do e-commerce.

Maybe you should read what I wrote, before replying. 
The assumption that bitcoin at some point will become as popular as paypal today has about the same likelyhood of materializing as the assumption bitcoin will never become anything more than it is today; an obscure way to transfer wealth for mostly illegal purposes. I never said either scenario is likely or what I believe in.
1736  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Eligius-miners: Do you agree with what is done with your hashing power? on: January 07, 2012, 09:01:25 PM
So another unsupported claim to "support" your unsupported claim.

Ive seen the posts where he took "credit" for taking it down. You will have to forgive me for  being too lazy to find them.
 I havent seen him admit he used his pool's hashing power, but thats a fair assumption to make, as I doubt he (or almost any individual) has enough hashing power of himself.
1737  Economy / Speculation / Re: highest volume ever on: January 07, 2012, 12:27:35 PM
I see myself as a speculator doing his proper job, namely stepping in when prices go absurd.

Define absurd. If your reference is actual economic trade done using bitcoins, any price above $0.1 is absurd. If your reference is bitcoin mid- to longterm potential to become a mainstream currency, any price below at least $1000 is absurd. You seem to use last weeks or last months price as reference, thats perhaps even more absurd.

If you analyze it in detail, you will find its a huge purchase order for Mt Gox!

Well, maybe not, but whatever it is, almost certainly originates from a (somewhat) intelligent species called humans.
