80% of Americans did not buy or read a book this year
70% of American adults have NOT been in a bookstore in the last five years
58% of American adults have never read a book after high-school

Sigh.
Now no joy that lacks salt that is not dashed with pain.

And what % of Americans have had their shoes shined this year?

Maybe people are reading electronic media.

I haven't bought a CD in about 15 years (or even patronized iTunes for that matter). Doesn't mean I forgot how to listen to music.

If anyone wants to ignore the OP, Bitcoin Dice has many dice games listed Wink

No legit business can offer the kind of returns he offered.

People who say "X is impossible" are amusing to me, regardless of X.


Okay, let's rephrase that. No legit business, absent rampant hyperinflation scenarios where the real interest rate is much lower, can offer the kind of returns he offered.

Reasoning:

a legit business, if it ever issues debt at astronomical rates, MUST pay those high-interest loans off immediately when feasible.

Stuck in a loop: People who say "a legit business MUST X" are amusing to me, regardless of X.

It's like they've completely shut off the possibility that there could ever be people who know things about business that they don't know.

Everyone on the internet is automatically an expert at everything though.

I prefer "non-classic" games like Kamikaze and I'm not just saying that because I have Kamikaze games Wink I just find them more fun, myself.

I once dated a girl who worked for a guy who took a holiday in Australia.

Thing I'm curious about, is how exorbitant was the price of shipping for your KNC gear?
368  Economy / Speculation / Re: Everyone will cash out at $1000 on: August 08, 2013, 12:42:21 AM
I'm never cashing out. To me bitcoin is more than just making money off panic buys and sells, its about financing a revolution.

If you never cash out, you will never realize a return. Your heirs may be thankful, though.

You mean a 'return' of $? Maybe you don't want your $ returned. Good riddance.

Also, you can boast about how wonderful node.js is, but just-dice is the ONLY site that uses it.

Node.js is like a magic bullet of modern awesomeness. The face that just-dice is using it speaks volumes. Any node gurus that feel like taking on a new project are more than welcome to contact me Cheesy

You really shouldn't be using mysql_* functions, at the very least use mysqli_* or PDO Smiley

Thanks, I hadn't read about that until today.

Personally I use more abstracted methods in a framework, but that might have made my example more complicated instead of less...    $db->query()

hey,may I know why did they freeze the account?

New accounts are 'frozen' by default (Not quite frozen, you can trade but can't withdraw.)

You need to apply (with ID) to have accounts unfrozen.

If you click on your transaction hash in blockchain.info it will tell you your priority and a guess of when it'll be mined.

You know what I really miss?
This:    bitcoincharts.com/bitcoin/txlist     (Don't bother visiting it, it's now 404).

I remember that page really started to get crazy once there were more than about 2000 unconfirmed transactions, but it was really good for seeing the progress of each transaction up the priority queue.

Can anyone early-adopter enough to remember that page point me to the current equivalent (if one exists)?

Edit: I found this http://blockchain.info/unconfirmed-transactions?show_adv=true but IMHO it's nowhere near as good as the old bitcoincharts one - it doesn't even show the priority number.

IMHO, Occam's razor says that Goat got screwed by Pirate just as badly as everyone else did.

Having said that though, I don't see the need for an LTC foundation.

Just as I don't really see the need for a BTC one either.

Searched but no answer found for this question:

Is it possible to somehow create a 'vanity' BM address? Like BM-2Cyberdyne6hY111lPtD111A111hY111lP for example.

378  Economy / Services / Re: How do I generate Bitcoin addresses on my website? $$ on: August 05, 2013, 11:12:05 AM
@Cyberdyne and CIYAM Open, is there any code examples I can use to import public keys I have and display one every time a button is pressed? Thanks a lot.  Smiley

Are you familiar with PHP/Mysql? Here's something to start with if it helps:

Code:

@mysql_query("UPDATE addresses SET used=NOW(), address=(@addr:=address) WHERE used IS NULL LIMIT 1;");
$result = mysql_query(SELECT @addr AS depositaddress;");
$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result);
$deposit_address = $row['depositaddress'];

The above code will mark an address as used, and then retrieve the one that was just marked.

If you do it the other way around (retrieve one, and then mark it as used), it's technically possible to accidentally give 2 customers the same address, if they both request an address in the exact same microsecond.

Edit: Okay I just re-read your post and see that you probably need more code than that. Perhaps someone can expand on the above. Let us know how you go.
379  Economy / Services / Re: How do I generate Bitcoin addresses on my website? $$ on: August 05, 2013, 09:57:10 AM
Maybe the OP was too specific in his wording when he said 'generate' and doesn't need to generate them on the fly, but rather, just display btc addresses to his customers.

In that case, pre-generating a list of addresses using bitaddress.org, and then loading those public addresses into a table on your server is a perfect solution. Then keep the private keys offline for later spending.

Incidentally this is how my kamikaze games have been set up - Players' deposits never get sent to the game server at any point.

mem i am a private investigator and for a small fee I will dig through every websites owner's past to make sure he has never even accidentally made a racist comment and if (s)he has I will report to you immediately. 1 bitcoin per request. PM me if you want to make sure you don't accidentally list any hate-mongers on your list.

Lol, this must be the most useless thing I've ever read on this board.
Sincerely, I don't care if the owner of the best gambling site EVAARRRRR once "accidentally made a racist comment" (not even on purpose).

Not sure if I should say 'whoooosh' or not.

For those that don't get the joke, mem once called Erik (satoshidice) out on some 'so-called' racist comment. I say 'so-called' because it was up for debate.
