Isn't that how all the old boards are configured and tuned, using different firmware? You are saying if someone buys a single they could have a $1300 brick on their hands?

What it means is that all the tuning happens at the factory, with the exception of overclocking, if that is an option.

Apologies if this has been addressed already, but the transaction pages seem to be a lot less detailed than they used to be.  I used to be able to see the value of each input to a transaction as well as being able to see which outputs have been redeemed.  Also there were links on each input and output linking to the previous and next transaction in the chain - so I could easily go from an input to the transaction which the input came from.

Is there some way of getting the fuller-featured transaction pages back again?
At the bottom of the page, there is a link to enable advanced functionality. I'm not sure of a way to make it permanent.

There are so many greedy people out there that HATE to see new people jump in on this mining stuff cause it does cut into their profits. You can't hide making money programs forever and there are bound to be many more people jumping on the bandwagon as word gets out there more. It is quite strange though the type of feedback I have ever gotten on here. All the feedback/responses I have ever received were all of the bullish, sarcastic, negative type. Doesn't surprise me. When you mix anything to do with money you are certain to expect the "best" of people.  Smiley  Hey, I guess no one ever started out as a new user here and never had questions. They just popped out of the womb with their mining rig in hand, tracking BTC prices. Get laid more often, it does help people!



The problem is that the profitability is completely unknown. There are wild estimates all over the place, you would probably stumble on a few if you had a peek round the mining speculation section. No one really knows whether the price will go up or down, and although the consensus is that the difficulty will go up, it is unknown how much and how fast this will happen. Therefore, it is all but impossible to calculate returns. I would suggest that you break out a few calculators and your crystal ball.

Noted. Since nothing is in stone and really no one knows anything there sure are lots of people with already preconceived notions on what will happen. I guess these are the mind readers with working crystal balls. The last time I used my crystal ball I was in Atlantic City - NJ losing money. Ha.


That's not to say that you can't get an idea of future profitability, it just requires more work and more math and more complex models than most people are accustomed to using. The number of unknowns make it difficult to build a good risk/reward model to go off of.

I might be interested, do you accept PayPal and shipping to Sweden with that price ($150), I'll take it Wink.

Thanks in advance!
Sorry no PayPal, and I'm trying to stay within the US and Canada unless you want to pay for shipping. However, this would be expensive because of the dimensional weight.

I will state that my involvement with Bitcoinica et al is nothing more than as a customer who deposited no more than a superficial amount of coins to try the service with. Those were withdrawn months ago and I now have a zero balance.
h00ters, you are spewing sentiment that very few people agree with, although one notable person who did agree was none other than the Bitcoinica hacker himself. Would you care to disclose your relationship with him, if any?

I do not care who agree's with me or not. I've done my research and come to this conclusion. This community is full of retards who THINK they know about bitcoin, when in fact most ppl dont have a clue. There is so much bullshit speculation in this community I could mop it up.

You = fucking retard. I'm not going hold your hand and show you my work and research. What other short selling services are out there? None other to my knowledge... kronos.io is still beta, thus its not active. Are there any other short selling services? Since the downfall of a service that de-values btc prices has gone up. If you can't see this, then I'm sorry you're blind as are many others. To me, there is a direct correlation to the downfall of bitconica and when btc price started to improve.

You need to stop trying to point fingers and take blame for your bad investment. Your sentiment and this thread is driving me crazy. I have been watching since this crap started to unfold. I have been in this community (not on these forums) prolly longer than most ppl. I don't like to get involved but your're clearly crying and wanting some attention.  STFU!

How many times do I have to repeat myself. I DID NOT HAVE AN INVESTMENT in bitcoinica. I did not use the margin trading facilities beyond testing it for fun with 5 BTC. I am not crying because I lost NOTHING. Please learn how to read before posting.

751  Economy / Goods / Re: [3.5BTC] 400 GRAMS of SWISS CHOCOLATE SHIPPED WORLDWIDE on: July 14, 2012, 02:15:17 AM
I received my order not too long ago. It was wrapped like a kilo of cocaine. rolled in newspaper and then completely wrapped in packaging tape. Aside from the fact that my mail man probably thought it was columbian bam bam, It was completely melted and all kind of pooled up on one side. I tried to put them in the freezer right when i got them, but they still did not survive to the point of being edible. Can I place a new order and pay for a more secure method of shipping?
Damn dude, summer sucks. Mine was fine, but it wasn't very hot out when I ordered. How would you propose to get around nature though? Some dry ice or something?
752  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Putting your money where Pirate's mouth is. on: July 14, 2012, 02:10:45 AM
Grasping at straws in this thread again, are we?

If by straws you mean a substantial fraction of the coin output of Gpumax, yes.

I'm also logging which accounts keep flooding my threads, just for later use. I wasn't expecting you to join.
Your thread, my ass. Anyways, that's beside the point.

Is it a problem if the wallets of both services are one and the same, as long as the book keeping is separate and accurate?
If you cared to read the GPUMAX thread more carefully, you would be able to easily find out how it works. But since I'm feeling a little nice tonight, I'll humor you by explaining it.

First main point: Any miner with an account can point hash power at it. By default, all hash power is proxied to the "offline pool", which means an external pool. For the purposes of an example, I would point my miners at GPUMAX, and my hash power would be proxied to Eclipse. The offline pool can be any pool you want it to be, such as Ozcoin, EMC, Slush, etc.

Second main point: You can choose to be paid more for your hash power by allowing GPUMAX to redirect it to the pools of those that pay for the service. You set the price per share that you are willing to be paid. If the price is too high, your hash power continues to go to the offline pool and you are not paid extra. If the price you set is around market price, or if it is set absurdly low (market price varies), your hash power is then removed from your offline pool and directed to the pool of the person who purchased the hash power. This assumes that "purchases are running", which they may not be all the time.

Third main point: As a purchaser, you are forced to pay a fixed price on two levels - normal priority, and high priority. The "fixed" price actually varies based on what miners are asking for their PPS price, but you cannot adjust it as a buyer in order to raise or lower your bid, except for the 2 priority levels. This makes it somewhat of a one-sided market, although the PPS price of faster miners has more weight that that of slower miners.

Fourth main point: As a purchaser, you are provided with a fixed deposit address that is unique to you. As a miner, you must set a payout address if you wish to be paid for your work.

Fifth main point: As a purchaser, the hash power you pay for must be directed at a small list of whitelisted compatible pools. You cannot mine to your own dark pool, or p2pool, or uncle bob's brand new prop pool that he just set up 3 days ago.

Sixth main point: As a purchaser, the ability to throw around 400-600 or even more gh/s of power to some of the big main pools basically on demand is very useful and profitable, if done with a bit of common sense. This is why you will pay a premium to use the service. Furthermore, a fee of 10% is collected on purchases by GPUMAX for their own coffers. The maximum purchase is currently 2 million shares, which at current market price will cost you BTC81.4 for normal priority, or BTC89.34 at high priority.

Final point: The accounts that are being mined to are not under control of GPUMAX, and the payout from them is sent directly to you. GPUMAX uses the above mentioned fee to be able to provide the service to so many people.

I hope this helps in your understanding of how the system works, and serves to illustrate how it is unlikely to be a component in the BS&T operation. It cannot be used effectively as a money laundering tool, because the throughput just isn't there. If we assumed that a 2 million share purchase would run continuously at 800gh/s, it would still take a little bit of time for that to complete, which means your laundering operation would be slow and allow very few coins through per day.

rjk, You're a true retard for trusting bitcoinica and devaluing btc via short selling. They get hacked for ~48k btc and you still trust em? Then another ~18k. Complete idiots to trust em after getting hacked the first time. Short selling is bad mmkay. So FUCK YOU for using bitcoinica and devaluing btc. 

The hacker did the community a huge favor. The price of btc is up since.... so stfu and stop whining about it. You put your $$ into someone ele's hands who might I add are complete idiots and now its gone. booo-fucking-hoo.

LastPass offers this following cool feature: The ability to share a saved password with a third party, while both keeping said password secret and not sharing the rest of your passwords. You can see a screenshot of how it works below.
IF we assume that passwords were being shared using this facility, then we can also reasonably assume that each LastPass user has his own password that is different. Therefore, I would like to know WHOSE LastPass got compromised.

If anyone is going to be beating on anyone else, please direct your threats at the actual hacker(s).
you say that like those hackers are "some mysterious people we don't even know" - riiiiiiiight.
Stop putting words in my mouth, I never said ANYTHING of the sort.
And furthermore, I'm fairly sure this could happen to any exchange, it just so happened that Bitcoinica/Intersango was targeted. If the hacker ever decided to shift targets, some really ugly shit could start happening.

If you stopped making inane threats, Mr. "Not Dangerous Myself", you might be able to buckle down and find out exactly who is behind it, assuming you can do some basic entry-level internet sleuthing. The sticking point right now is whether the evidence is enough to convict the asshole that did it, not who it is, or where he is, or any other BS like that.

Kiba, while you are correct that EVERYONE should use 2 factor...this is not why Bitcoinica was hacked.

Bitcoinica was hacked (this time) because they had their mtgox API key on the server which the hacker was able to exploit.

I'm not sure if its possible to do 2 factor with the API.
My understanding is that the API key was the master password for LastPass, which allowed the hacker access to the mtgox account with a password. No 2FA was used on the mtgox account, because LastPass was considered secure. This is what I have gathered.
760  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: MtGox and 2 Factor Authentication on: July 13, 2012, 08:48:17 PM
Although forcing all users to have it is a bit harsh, I think at the very least all trusted users with adjusted withdrawal limits needs to be forced to use 2FA. If they can't afford a Yubikey or a GA-capable smartphone, then why the hell are they trading such large amounts of $ and BTC?
