i've been in constant contact with marco for years now, since he took over my other loans from the past. he told me about this thread via text message, not a forum message. i think that's decent confirmation it's still the same guy. as for knowing i'm still me, well i was verified quite thoroughly for a group buy back in 2013, with photos and everything, and i still look mostly the same, so if there's a question about that i can show i'm me.

he's been more than patient with me through years of employment troubles, which i'm now finally getting back on top of. interviewed for a promotion recently, even. if that goes through then my repayment to him will continue as stated, at the least.

definitely not overclocked, never do that. has the factory cooler and i just blasted everything with air sunday night.

recently ran a bunch of memtests, both using windows built in diagnostic and memtest86. results were... inconclusive? i've been having random hard crashes where the whole system locks up for over a year now. but recently finally replaced the SSD and reinstalled windows, as well as the video card. after that and blasting the insides with air sunday it's been running fine.

HDD looks to have a warning about some sectors if i'm interpreting HDDscan correctly. not surprisingly, it's 8 years old. i'll do some investigation on that and probasbly replace the drive when i can.
Usually these kind of issues are due to bad memory. If memtests were inconclusive, you might want to consider replacing or removing some of your RAM to see if you can identify which modules are bad.

i'll try that. thanks.

This might be caused by a hardware issue.

Can you verify that your CPU is not overclocked and cooled properly ?
And also check your hard drive (i.e. S.M.A.R.T. values) and your RAM (i.e. memory test).

so, on a new windows install and formatted hard drive I've installed 16.3 and am trying to sync for the first time. it's getting stuck at about 15%. stays on the same block with no progress for hours. tried restarting the whole process by closing bitcoin core and deleting to data folder (separate hard drive from the install) and it happened again, about 15%, but a different block. the first time I had closed the client and replaced the newly made wallet file with my old one, but the second time I did not.

any thoughts? i can just leave it, but a block shouldn't be taking 6+ hours to download and process, should it?

(this viewed in ponderation of other peoples' presently pointing out your posting proclivities may provide probability to give your person pause)

Personally,I perceive your point a pertinent possibility...

Upon my premiere preview of picnickiebearie's posting, I hadn't perceived the precarious parroting of my prestigious and purportedly pretentious persona, which I pinpoint as perhaps inappropriate and preposterous

this is just plain preposterous.

The problem is that most people are stupid and can't think critically.

It's worse than that. I have found that most people can not think abstractly. As soon as I attempt to use abstract reasoning normal people accuse me of changing the subject...

Yeah, because your abstractness transcends into such high levels that no one simple mortal understands your unique brilliance... hahahahahaha.. Go figure?   Roll Eyes

eh, i've encountered such people as well... "how the hell did you do that!?" ...i thought about it for a second or two. recent example was something related to the voyager spacecraft and how they'll likely never actually encounter anything because space is so fucking huge and the golden records on them are, therefore, totally pointless. this was in a comment thread about said records, so it was perfectly topical.

Remember the good ol' days when this was the place to find out wtf was happening with the price?



I remember those days. Something I have wondered and I've been meaning to ask, what happened to that wall observer bot? The one that would post the depth chart every few hours? It appears to be gone completely.

RichieT did a rage quit with his Chartbuddy about 2 years ago.  He got all BIG blocker nutjobie, and at that time concluded (and still seems to hold such sentiments) that theymos was censoring his feelings too much, and he was going to take his marbles...

You or anyone else with the possible skills who wants to could program a chartbuddy, and I am sure that anyone would receive a lot of positive praise for such proactivity.. likely merits, but maybe if the bot performed well, even a few folks would donate some token amounts of BTC (no guarantees, of course)?

yea, i miss the old chart buddy,...

he was nice.

Sorry guys but we neither give assistance about lost coins nor, especially, give assistance if those lost coins are bcash. Please bring to roger's forum. Or try the altcoin section

Ive been part of this thread for years and know there are some knowledgeable people here. The only reason i was even touching the cash was to convert it to BTC.

Again, help will not be unrewarded.

EDIT: As i was typing the TX ID the balance is back up. Phew.

What are the reasons that would happen with BTC or BCH in electrum? Ive never seen the full total leave before coming back later

best guess, and it's definitely a guess, really, really slow transaction processing.

again, you're acting like all things marx related - no matter how small - are inherently evil. but there are multiple countries, as i already pointed out ,that have various socialist systems, democractic ones and under royal authority as well, depending. russian style soviet rule? oh yea. bad. sure. universal healthcare and reasonable corporate regulation, like living wages? eh, i don't see it.

You could create anything


1) A revolution against your monarchy Russia 1917
2) A war in Europe - USA 1917
3) A new state - Israel - Balfour declaration 1917
4) A European Nation (Council) Versailles treaty 1918

and on and on




all very true.

Going to see the new star wars today mat the force be with me down there

You do realize the people who make that garbage are openly admitting to have a SJW agenda at this point? Right? They publicly rant and rave about it on twitter. One of them even said one of the main characters is a "pan-sexual". You couldn't pay me to partake of that tripe.

eh, so what? doctor who had an "omni sexual" character years ago.

also, who cares what a character's sexuality is? is he an interesting, fully developed character wor a paper cutout? dreams, aspirations, etc... that's what matters about a character.

also, light sabers and the force and such. yay.

but seriously - if you don't like it, ok. don't watch it. no big deal. hell, i haven't seen it. but why care if someone else is going? you know full well how hollywood and disney view things. the audience won't change them unless, en masse, we rejected them, which you also know isn't going to happen, as the majority of society is relatively accepting and more inclined to live and let live, for better or worse as it may be.
Because communism killed at least 150 million people in the 20th century, and we are heading the same way again.

...wow, that's... quite a leap. from star wars to 105 million dead, i mean. but, you're not entirely wrong in the "heading that way" aspect, sort of. not so much communism and stalin style, as socialism, like what is seen in multiple Scandinavian countries, and seems to do quite well for all involved, though not living there i could obviously be wrong.

also, should we talk about how many capitalism has killed? harder to define, certainly, but not zero. a friend lost his mother last year, as needed medical procedures weren't covered.someone, somewhere, literally decided she wasn't worth the money. that's... not a good system.
Leftism is marxism. A movie is a small thing, but by spending money on it you support it.

Capitalism is the reason you can complain about it to a stranger halfway across the planet through a magical typewriter connected to a global communication network.

again, you're acting like all things marx related - no matter how small - are inherently evil. but there are multiple countries, as i already pointed out ,that have various socialist systems, democractic ones and under royal authority as well, depending. russian style soviet rule? oh yea. bad. sure. universal healthcare and reasonable corporate regulation, like living wages? eh, i don't see it.

I'm not about to go on a crusade but if I can convince one person not to give his money to rabid ideologues who are trying to destroy our society than that is better than nothing.

RABBId ideologues, you mean?
I'm sure the producers are joos. They all are.

You could open a nice thread with a few other WO participants. An echo chamber. Not as good a gas chamber, I know, but we all have to make do with what we have.
Dude we really need to find another solution to the jewish question other than gassing the jews, because if we do not then we will end up gassing the jews again.

i'm sure i'm not alone when i ask this, but who knows: what jewish question would that be? i've know a few people who were or are jewish. they... had no differences, economic or otherwise, between them and anyone else, that i could discern anyway. it only came up on religious specific holidays, same as a muslim or even a jehovah's witness did. the fact they were jewish was basically irrelevant. they still have to get jobs, pay bills, eat food. no one is handing them a check just cause they're jewish.

fair enough.

though, you realize, the majority (at least state side) generally agrees with hollywood, right? i mean, not to extremes of 70 genders and whatnot, but gay rights are good, guns are bad, etc. thus, they've effectively already changed society, they're not just trying to. they're the front of the changing tide.

mind you, i am not stating that this is a good thing or a bad thing, it just IS a thing. it's how things ARE, regardless of our opinions. by all means, work for change you'd like to see. everyone should. just recognize that sometimes you're in a minority. as i think is the case with star wars and disney. again, for better or worse.

Thought this might make for an interesting thread...

If you've lost bitcoins (i.e. they're gone forever, completely unrecoverable), post how much you lost, and add it to the running tally.  Right now, the running tally is 0BTC, since I haven't lost any bitcoins.

I recently read a thread about someone losing 0.000001 BTC, and someone else losing 20 BTC.

So person one would write:
+ 0.00001 BTC
= 0.00001 BTC

Person two would write:
+ 20 BTC
= 20.0001 BTC

Etc, etc.  That way we don't have to run through pages and pages of thread to figure out what the running tally of lost bitcoins is.

Make sense?  Good.  Do it.

Starting lost BTC balance:  0.0000000 BTC
I was scammed ~500btc back in 2011 when the whole forum was still naive to scams, last year got scammed a bunch more on LBC due to bank reversals

you don't have the coins, but SOMEONE does. not the point of this thread.

Can we talk about doom and gloom yet?

You should considering buying more Bitcoin before doom happens.



what's this credit cycle referred to in the image?

edit: i found it. supposed to be total industrial credit and loans as a percentage of US GDP.

...is this chart suggesting we're about to hit another recession, when, in the opinion of most of my friends we never recovered from the last one? oh joy.

mind you, "we" basically means "me" in this case, as in the friend or friends in question were in a better place financially before the 2008 housing bubble and have yet to return to solid footing. heck, i sure was.
