This sort of shit pisses me off big time. I run AdBlockPlus so I never saw it, but when I disabled ABP in order to see what an unprotected user might see, I saw the same ads and they weren't even in a highlighted yellow box. Fuck you, Google. I submitted reports for both ads that I saw, by using this contact form: https://support.google.com/adwords/contact/feedback

All the parts and accessories for this build have now been sold. Locking thread.

Hi, rjk. It's a great pity that this interesting project was finally failed.
You should have made more progress if you had asked help from AMD directly.
I heard there was an informal "Multi-GPU" project proposed by AMD last year and finally
they got 16 GPUs (8x FirePro S10000s) to work in a single rig successfully.
So I think AMD might have already developed a proprietary driver to overcome the 8-gpu limit.
See:

Hey if you wanna have a go, I've got all the parts except the video cards... Just name your price.

rjk, do you still have the entire pwm fan controller setup that I built for this project years ago? I remember taking a lot of pride in that, being my first bitcoin-related project Smiley

Good luck selling, I hope someone will be eager to take on the challenge for sCrypt mining!
Yep I do, and that cool micro-router based wifi sharing thingy.

I'm bumping this to hopefully reel in some offers for this stuff, because I need to get rid of it. I have tons of parts that need to go. Here's a list:

The backplane itself, mounted on the custom tray/frame, and hard wired to a 1.2 KW PC Power and Cooling PSU. Because of the way this is mounted, I don't want to take it apart and I wish to sell it as a package. $750

The Sandy Bridge based CPU board with 8 GB of ECC DDR3 RAM as well as the older NLT6313 dual CPU board with 8 GB of DDR2. $1000 Or, the backplane and CPU boards for $1500 together.

All the other accessories - buy the entire package for $2000 including the backplane and CPU boards.

These accessories include:

Delta fans
IBM 240 volt PDU with 70 amp connector
Dell 2360 watt 12 volt power supplies for blade servers
6 AWG cable with Dell PSU connectors soldered on
Additional frame parts
Custom built 240 volt PDU with power cables (for connecting regular rigs)

SHIPPING IS EXTRA!
If you buy everything, it will probably take up 3 or 4 very large boxes (50+ lbs). For this reason, I will not ship internationally. I'm located in Ohio if anyone wants to pick some stuff up.

Payment: I will not take only bitcoins, but I will consider a partial bitcoin trade with cash. Since PayPal sucks, I will only consider using it with the most trusted members. I will also consider partial trades of BFL ASIC hardware.

Thanks for supporting my point with the case of your brain.
Would you care to support your point with the uptime statistics of your non-linux servers supporting your customers? Oh right - Microsoft can't be arsed to create a server OS whose updates don't require a reboot. Note: I am intentionally ignoring BSD, Solaris, etc since he likely has never heard of them.

I feel your pain, I also administer a couple Windows servers that have to be rebooted monthly for patches, but they are in a lesser capacity that can stand some downtime.

The Linux kernel is nothing short of a work of art, in my own personal opinion. If our site has downtime, it is solely the fault of ourselves (for deploying code with bugs) or our hardware (for failing catastrophically). The Kernel can even survive a total failure of certain hardware parts such as processor and RAM, when in a hardware mirrored configuration. As far as I know, Windows doing so without at least a BSOD to show for it is unheard of.

And furthermore, even Microsoft knows the superiority of Linux and its associated components in a high-availability server environment - they use it themselves! It's a very poor practice to completely absolve oneself of one OS or another, or programming language, or anything else - each has its strengths and weaknesses.

Now I will stop feeding the troll, since I have had my say. Can anyone say "forum sliding tactics"?  Roll Eyes

I am 12 and what is this?
I've seen these posters before - they exist to do nothing but build up a high post count and then scam someone. That's all I'm going to say on this.

In other news, this is now an uptime thread! Consider the following:
Code:
[root@mail1 ~]# uptime
 17:04:40 up 974 days,  5:51,  1 user,  load average: 0.06, 0.03, 0.00
Code:
[root@web2 rjk]# uptime
 17:15:12 up 556 days, 48 min,  1 user,  load average: 1.56, 1.23, 1.23
Code:
[root@web4 rjk]# uptime
 17:15:56 up 466 days,  1:19,  1 user,  load average: 1.11, 1.05, 1.06
Code:

Blackberry Q10 - had a Z10 but really needed my keyboard back.

Please someone make a native Bitcoin app with the Cascades framework. I love you long time.

Well hey, whaddya know, I just got a shipment confirmation today for my 2x Jalapeno, order 1776. Now I have to contact the guy that bought them, who looks like he hasn't been on the forum since 2012. What fun.

You bought through a middleman? Why? But if your order was confirmed, that means it has been shipped right?
No, I was the middleman, and everything is all good.
Received and re-shipped to buyer, who has them running in another thread.

John, you should look up the thread in the newbies section that has the same graphic. It's more up-to-date and has more detail.
Also someone needs to do up a blurb on the Trust system that I only just noticed existed today, if it hasn't been done already.

Confirming that I was able to access my bookmarked URL and submit a claim. Have received an email with a confirmation number.

I provided the IP address that I usually access my IW from, if that helps.

I have not used Prolexic so I can not provide a comparative analysis.  All I can say is Spamhaus just had the largest DDOS attack in the history of the internet and survived with CloudFlare.  Based on what I'm seeing so far this DDOS on Mt Gox is no where near that scale.

I have no idea how Prolexic does DDOS mitigation.  What I do know is CloudFlare uses anycast to spread your site all over the world.  You would have to DDOS a whole lot of locations in order to affect a site.  Maybe someone familiar with Prolexic's methodologies can chime in.
You can't cache a trading engine like you can a static website.
17  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: What nginx ???? on: April 05, 2013, 03:10:55 PM
NGINX is a fast lightweight replacement for Apache web server.  I've been getting similar errors on Mt Gox for 3 days.  I suspect this is the recent DDOS attacks causing this.  Mt Gox, if you read this forum USE CLOUDFLARE FFS!
Cloudflare is better than Prolexic?
18  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Instawallet claim process on: April 05, 2013, 01:59:58 PM
Well fuck me. I only had less than 1 BTC on IW, but only because of Davout running his idiot mouth about how unhackable they were and their intrusion detection countermeasures, and because I didn't want to maintain a bitcoind any longer. Only myself to blame, I guess. When does the claims process start?

I would like to take this opportunity to nominate any of the following:

  • Gavin Andresen
  • Yochdog
  • Death&Taxes
  • Steve Gibson

Thanks for your consideration.

Omg, why has noone nominated RJK yet?!
I kind of thought the same thing when I didn't see a Gavin nomination, so there it is (apologies if I missed someone else's Gavin nomination).
I won't be able to go though.
