Actually, I wonder if Pirate could pay out all balances of his own accord simultaneously, and request that they all be paid back in as soon as possible so that the operation isn't affected too much.

I don't understand where is the 100% proof?
Floating around in the aether somewhere... possibly 100% proof AND 100% lie, given Schrodinger's cat!

A Bitcoin payment can be reversed?? Might want to let the devs know.
Yes, using the 51% attack.

LOL.  care to give us some examples?
Obtain 51%
Roll back the tx log.

What he is saying is correct, but like evoorhees said above, it's like saying that cash is reversible because thieves could break in and steal it. Obtuse.

Dude, come on.

Reading through the other thread, I doubt mcorlett understands the requirements, and limitations, of the 51% attack.
I'm sure he does, he's just being obtuse and Luke-Jr-ish.

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?

Does Microsoft make best computers in the world?

Grin I just had to, sorry.

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
994  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Help build a better Bitcoin logo! on: July 05, 2012, 03:34:23 PM
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.
995  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.
999  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Putting your money where Pirate's mouth is. on: July 05, 2012, 02:38:12 PM
I was going to suggest around 18 months or so.
