Coins received, will ship today.

7 cards remaining, would rather sell as many as possible at once, will take $125 each firm including shipping. Might be a little extra shipping if any of you Canuckistanians want in. Grin

I never knew it was him that wrote DiabloMiner, I respect that program very much as it gives the best GPU mining performance. He obviously has skills, maybe he can design own hardware ?


Since when a software programmer can design hardware?

I'll tell you one thing for sure, and that is that all the noisy assholes that have been bashing pirate have been pushing me closer to investing, just out of spite for their windy and non-logical posts. I'm sure I'm not the only one that's feeling this way, so be careful that you don't overdo it and get the opposite effect to what you are are trying to achieve, capisce?

No the concern is still valid.

Computer power will continue to double every year or two. The exponential effect will catch up with almost any algorithm much sooner than we expect.
Not valid, if you only consider Moore's law. Even with an exponential increase in hashing speeds, it is still unbreakable for many centuries and beyond. The worry is whether a protocol flaw can be found to reduce the amount of calculations needed to accelerate hashing speeds.

Should I specify a minimum bid increment of $1? Grin

I like that, it looks great, only thing I see is that the 'b' in the lower 2 color graphic doesn't have the same tail as the one above it.

Also, a brand must be complete. A logo is great to have, but a complete brand will include several logos for different print and screen applications, favicons that are clear and easy to distinguish, web-safe palettes for website use, a style handbook, and other supporting material and documentation.
989  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] 2x Jalpeno order - selling my place in line - order #1776 --- SOLD on: July 05, 2012, 03:28:34 PM
SOLD

Unfortunately due to extenuating circumstances, I need to get out of this order. Therefore, my place in line is for sale to the highest bidder.

According to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=89685.0 I am fairly close to the beginning of the line, so make an offer based on that.

Starting bid is the cost for 2x Jalapeno direct from BFL - $312 with shipping. Bidding ends at 12:00:00 Noon Eastern Time on Saturday the 7th of July 2012. Payable in BTC at market rate, Dwolla, or MtGox codes. You are responsible for any additional shipping that BFL may charge if you are located somewhere that costs more for them to ship to.

People confusing "than" and "then" drives me nuts.  They don't sound the same and they aren't synonyms - how the hell can you confuse them, especially in writing?

They're are worse problem's then that, but if you don't like it than why don't you do something about it?

I don't want to force anyone to become the coin holder, but if it comes down to a bet I could suggest the following names:

nanotube
DeathAndTaxes
theymos
Keefe

unless someone else wants to volunteer.

I was going to suggest around 18 months or so.

I need to search for some more antistatic bags and packaging materials and boxes. Unfortunately, I seem to be short some of those.

It would perform better with a huge L1 cache, from what I understand. And all those 8 cores have extra x86 cruft that could be deleted to make room for more cache and dedicated hashers. Once you reach the magical memory mark of however many MB of cache you need, the rest is just processing power. If you are under that magical number (which for LTC is actually lower than reference Scrypt implementations, so it would be easier), then you have to worry about swapping out to slow onboard dram and that's where the performance loss is incurred.

A Faraday cage only needs to be grounded when you want to use it to protect the contents from high voltage. No ground is needed for a foil wrap to reflect radio waves.

rjk, I firmly believe that this guy is a scammer! Are you seriously saying that I should shut up and let him steal everyone's money?

Also, betting with someone about when he himself will choose to default?

I can do four-digit BTC, against you, right here. We need to get some mod we both respect to hold the funds, and that's that. Betting on this does not scare me at all, I'm not just trolling for the heck of it. On the contrary, this is exactly what I want.

Give me financial instruments to go against these types of operations, and I will crush them with precision every time and make a killing off it. The only thing is that time-scales must be conservative now because it is public, Pirateat40 can just play as some other account, and thus I have to pick scales and bets that don't let him trick me.

But he's not going to bend over for 1k BTC, especially not on a long-term bet, so bring it on.
I don't gamble. I just wish that there were proof (from both sides, but meh); indeed such proof as would stand in a courtroom, not speculation. I don't see him advertising at all, or drawing anyone in, or what have you. This concern perhaps extends to his lenders that are making him more accessible to others, but really that is just additional risk for someone to consider (pirate risk + lender risk).

I recall Deepbit when it was becoming large and perceived as a threat. There was all kinds of fuss and FUD, and he had a gentlemen's agreement to cease advertising. A year or so later, he is still going strong, still without any advertising, and seemingly without fail. I know this is no analog to Pirate's operation, but I'd like to think that it could be resolved similarly: just let it run and see what happens.

I'm sure you wish to do your duty to prevent scams, but really, I think that your bullheaded forging ahead is causing some to invest purely out of spite for your (and others') further discomfit. I think it needs to be laid to rest and put to bed, and when it fails you can say "I told you so".

There is a viable option to put your money where you mouth is:

http://betsofbitco.in/item?id=433

What, look at the odds of that thing! Tongue

jk, that was me just now. I don't know whether I want to trust the site with more than 250 BTC, it's some anonymous whatever. But odds are quite green for now.
Well I was trying to avoid betsofbitcoin, because I was thinking in sums of perhaps 5k BTC and a similar amount of USD as some kind of hedge or something, to be paid to pirate himself (not counter-gamblers) in case of continued solvency.

But coming to think of it, I really don't care about that, I was just hoping there would be a bit of sting in it in case of continued solvency and operation (not that I expect either). However, I would be satisfied by just a general toning down of your posts, and a reduction of the bile and vitrol content of them as well.

The same goes for others, as well!
