1721  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Which VNC program do you use? (... assuming you do) on: January 07, 2012, 10:30:42 AM
Is there an SSH equivalent for windows? I found an actual openSSH port for windows, but its very old and doesnt seem to work on 64 bit W7. I just want a remote command line in windows.

freeSSHd is old, but it should work on 7.  i know it works on server 2008 at least.


Thanks. Ill give that a try

The same chip is used on some older videocards, including the 2900XT, which has 2 :

You could try buying such a card from ebay or something and then transplant that VT1165MF. Whether that will work and is worth the effort is something else..

Did you know if the "2900 Pro" have this chip?!

According to that link; yes, if it is a reference design

All that would do is devalue an already worthless dollar. It would create nothing. If anything, it would raise food costs and force employers to raise prices.

You can keep saying that, but it doesnt make it true.  Printing trillions of dollars and giving it to the banks should cause vastly more inflation, If you are so concerned about inflation, thats what you should worry about. But even that so far has not really created inflation. inflation isnt our problem at this point.

 Besides, minimum wage in real dollars today is lower than it was in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

The end is near? That sounds... not very reassuring!

btw, about a bounty system, perhaps you could make proportional to the CDF, once above a certain treshold (say 90% or something). Its something pool hoppers could exploit, but I wouldnt mind some poolhoppers joining at this point.
1725  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin DRM behind price increase? on: January 06, 2012, 11:21:38 PM
makes no sense at all.
Aside from the more fundamental issues already addressed, if it works with 1 BTC, there is no reason it wouldnt work with 0.0000001 BTC. The impact of such amounts on the exchange rates would be about zero if for a top game.

Oddly enough I had this happen to me once...

I was mining happily when all of a sudden my 5850 OR 5870 suddenly displayed 127C in cgminer, and my PC also had a hang. After rebooting it worked fine...but I never understood what happened.

I do. You ran GPU-Z, everest and/or MSI afterburner (at least two of those apps). The combination of those apps causes a bug in a 58x0 BIOS and makes the vcore shoot to 1.65v randomly. I fried a 5850 that way. More details here:

The litecoin pool-x have a system that I dont quite know the details about, but they give a bonus/bounty to anyone solving a long block. That may not be a bad idea.

To give a good example, I hereby pledge 0.25 BTC to the person finding the next block on bitminter (if he claims it here, Im not gonna chase him).
1728  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Extremly slow minting? on: January 06, 2012, 04:00:10 PM
Last BTC block was minted 2 days and 5 hours ago.. Whats up with this? Really bad luck?

CDF of 97% currently

https://bitminter.com/livestats/big

Yes, thats bad luck. But only a few days ago we minted 6 blocks in 24 hours, with a lower hashrate at that, so I wouldnt feel too bad yet Smiley
It just goes with a small pool, you have lucky and not so lucky days. But in the long run you will earn more than with the big pools, because you dont pay a fee.

1729  Economy / Economics / Re: Junk Money Party will go on for 3 years on: January 06, 2012, 01:31:44 PM
That's a huge "if".  The thing is that government is not wiser than free people.  Most of the time it just wastes the money into stupid things.

Some thing just work better if the motivation is not short term financial profit for a few, but long term advantages for the entire society. Public transport, healthcare and education are some examples of that. There are enough countries where this does works properly, Ive not seen one where a free market properly addresses it.

Of course, that doesnt mean anything if you have government which has no interest in advancing society at large, because it doesnt represent the will of the people, but is beholden to special interests on which its entirely dependent for election and finance (even on an individual level, particularly after a political career). This is the problem in the US imo; not that a government would be doing these things, the problem is your government is no longer representative, so no matter what it does, its not designed to benefit you.  The solution is not replacing government by corporations (to a large extend, you already have that!). Fix your electoral system first, and then worry about what thing are best  achieved by profit only motives.
1730  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Count down to Iran invasion on: January 06, 2012, 01:13:41 PM
Fair point.  If the mullahs did attack the US mainland or kill significant numbers of American civilians, all bets would be off.  

lol what? Thats never gonna happen. Iran has zero interest in doing that, and they likely dont even have the ability. Nothing about Irans posturing or actions is aggressive, its all defensive and in response to endless threats, sanctions and actual hostilities and western sponsored terrorism.

Like I said before, I dont want idealize their regime, nor do I envy people living under the Iranian regime (though its much better than, say Saudi Arabia), but I actually greatly admire Irans international policies. No regime in the world has a bigger incentive to develop nuclear weapons, yet if put aside the rethoric and look at the facts, all indications are they are not working on one, they keep adhering to the non proliferation treaty (unlike the US and Israel) and they keep willing to talk and negotiate with the UN, the IAEA even the US, despite all that the US is doing to them.

They have shown extreme restraint considering everything thats being done to them. We constantly lie about what they say and do trying to scapegoat them. We deny them their "inalienable" right to nuclear energy despite having a signed a treaty with them that specifically grants them that right. We routinely conduct terrorist attacks inside Iran, we constantly threaten them with war, yet another regime change and we even refuse to rule out a nuclear attack. We sanction them in just about any possible way. And how does Iran react? With dignity and honor IMO.

Anyway, Iran is not about to invade the US or any other country for that matter, Iran does not want war; the only ones that want war are certain fractions within the US and Israel, so what is much more likely is a Gulf of Tonkin Incident. Whether or not staged, faked, provoked, accidental or real, Iran certainly does have the capability to do some serious damage to US military assets in their backyard. And that might be exactly what some people are hoping for, but not in Teheran.

1735  Economy / Speculation / Re: Poll :: When will Bitcoin reach $1 Billion total value on: January 05, 2012, 08:46:44 PM

3.
Imagine that 6 billion people on earth all have 1 BTC in average to let their whole economy function (USD2,857,142/BTC).

You may want to rethink that.

These machines are on anyway, and the added power draw is on the order of 40W per CPU, depending on CPU (laptop is substantially less, main rig a tad more). That doesnt cost me $12 per month, but thats for everyone to calculate.

I dont plan on avoiding technology. Its not like I will go in to minute details about SHA-256 hashing or whatever, but if they want to get in to bitcoin, they will need a basic high level understanding of the technology behind it and enough knowledge to be able to use it.  Thats why they "need" me,  as I dont think they need me  to understand what leverage on bitcoinica means. But its never smart to invest in to something you dont understand at all.

minor feature request for our avatars.. first of all, its probably a good idea to put "bitminter.com" in there. Perhaps separate from the image, above or belo.  Secondly, perhaps our names?
If you need some room, remove the "Mhps" and put it below the speed in tiny font.
1739  Bitcoin / Technical Support / Re: cannot start bitcoin-qt on: January 05, 2012, 06:26:31 PM
OKay, I just tested it on windows. I get the same dates so thats okay.

Try this; reboot. Then click start and type %appdata% and press enter. SHould open C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming in file explorer.
rename bitcoin folder into something else. Try launching bitcoin again. Be patient.
1740  Bitcoin / Technical Support / Re: cannot start bitcoin-qt on: January 05, 2012, 05:38:18 PM
Where did you download it from? Something odd with the date of that exe. Its a year old?
