Good luck Phil!

A few friends reported a dead/useless arm for a day or two; and feeling out of it;  but they made it through jab one without issue.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BUBBLE UPDATE!!!!!! COME SEE A DEMO OF THE SOFTWARE..Game changing new tech on: April 02, 2021, 07:01:20 AM
I'd just dedicate one of my CPU's to it;  I have several IP addresses I can pull from as far as nodes are concerned;
One of them could possibly change (when major power outages happen in the county, we get a new IP there)  But is always going to be fully under my control;

The several others are through datacenter hosts;  one being OVH....   I can set up a dedicated node easily (hopefully on my linux distros instead of running it in a W10 VM on one of those IP's)  These machines all have static IP ranges we have reserved for VMs already.

I am the main network tech for a few people; and I have full access to their machines and permission to set up my own processes on them... I think I have 3VM's running on one of the machines my client rents.

I'm not sure if ill need the algo information?  
I guess it will be built into the node/wallet software... so I had planned on just going that route initially....  I dont plan to put any GPU or asic towards it;  My excess useful hardware inventory of GPU's is all gone now;  Just the 1080 in my home/game pc, and maybe a few gtx550's in a bin somewhere.
    
It would be nice to see people being able to get decent stake/POW rewards with just a 2.6Ghz cpu, etc....   So the prospects for that are great.

I need to find my old bub wallet file from the last node I ran;  load it up and check its balance....  I left enough in it when selling off my bulk of coins to another member here for it to continue staking and grow(he was using it to pay people from what I recall);  there may be ~10-20K coins in it for all I know.  I think there might still be a few active nodes running last I saw....  but Ill know for sure when I try to get the wallet all set up again.

When california had outages early 2020;  the IP changed for my wallet, and that machine actually fried all of its network ports from lightning I think.  It was acting VERY strangely.  It never went back up after that.

Good news:  I found the bag with all the extra hardware/nuts/bolts and Allen keys it came with.

Iíll drop em in a usps priority packet and send em your way this week.

the screw heads or nuts go through the bar. or slide inside the rails.  
gotta adjust them for slack, wiggle the nuts into the channel, and tighten (some bar ends have holes for through-tightening the round headed endcap screws that slide into the channels, you will notice those on the cut ends of some parts).  

I left all screws in their respective locations for easy reassembly (hopefully).   Even with Spotswood's directions;  it took me a bit to get that frame assembled; and it was accomplished by skewing from the directions slightly to be honest.
I believe when I photographed it, I took the photos of the parts disassembled but in the places/zones they came from.



When running many cards before, I used a coolmax 1600w PSU alongside that one....   it had more a bunch more PCIE connectors and cables on it.... but for the longest time that thing was doing low power mining and early XMR mining and only ran it with that PSU.

On the 1.0 board, the edge connectors (black PATA/SATA power cable) are the 12V source for each of the PCIE slot zones.   I never needed to populate the final SATA plug at the end from what I remember.  I believe it and the one before it serve power to 3 of (or the 4) 1x connectors.  I kinda forget exactly.    

I guess it all depends on how you are running the rig, how much power you are going to feed what kind of cards ultimately.


Also;  a VERY smooth transaction for future note;  Both buyer and escrow.   Thanks again =)

Iím not sure if the bub chain will be rebooted or continued (yobit fucked everyone in a manner of speaking)...

I could possibly operate as a node with a static ip or a static host name (not sure if it can be configured as a host name in the wallet instead of an IP; it would open up my options)

I have access to a few data center hosted machines

Do you guys sell these GPUs at these high mark ups in person or online? I donít think I would be able to sell them in person at a high mark up. Online itís different. But when you are doing the transaction in person I couldnít look the other person in the eye while charging him 50-100% mark up.

I would feel ashamed for taking advantage. And if I was a buyer paying a high mark up I also wouldnít have a pleasant look on my face knowing that I am paying a huge premium to this individual who was lucky enough to find some in stock.
I never mark up at ebay prices.

on ebay 1 1080ti and 1 3080 is running for 2900 + tax.

in my listing I ask for a bid from 2100 to 2500


https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5320394.0


so you could get it 800 cheaper than ebay.  I am not ashamed to take that much profit.

But frankly face to face scares me on any high priced sale. My fear is the guy wants to stick me up.

This is why I meet at a friends house whom owns a LOT of firearms for protection;
Or I meet in a local PD parking lot to do the transaction.

I have done the gas station meetup;  but only at ones I know are covered with security cameras and that are very busy...   I haven't been robbed yet (knock on wood).
10  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS/WTT] Onda B250-D8P mining rig on: February 27, 2021, 07:25:16 AM
Please message me when ready to do this.

Will do Phil;  I plan to box it up tomorrow after work.

I just finished installing W10;  Just installed the downloaded ISO while it was plugged into the net;  remembered it's old status and activated automatically. https://imgur.com/Flkj9x8

Couldn't install the crimson blockchain driver (no card);  so the installer is in the downloads folder for you.  netplwiz.exe used to set to auto-login.  The user account's password is in a text file on the desktop in case you need it (for RDP and to change it).

I am running it through all the updates right now (thank god I finally got better internet for home out here in the boonies;  my cellular link is ~30Mbit now instead of 3).   
I'll run it updating tonight until it doesn't find anymore updates to install; then Ill consider it all ready to box up.

Am I direct shipping it to you @DebitMe?  I have never done a goods escrow personally yet; its always been direct for me in the past.  Knowing Phil has payment;  I have zero worries about sending it direct (unless you prefer anonymity).
I can have the shipping cost to give you once I have a zip code and its final box size.  I tend to use USPS (typically most cost-effective and reliable), but if another service reaches you better or more reliably, its your choice.

It will ship out of 95037.
11  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS/WTT] Onda B250-D8P mining rig on: February 27, 2021, 01:14:54 AM
Awesome.

Iíll get on installing 10 when I get back home then get it packaged up.
Iíll pm when ready for shipping info.
12  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS/WTT] Onda B250-D8P mining rig on: February 26, 2021, 02:23:49 AM
Sorry sorry. I am a tax accountant, so I am absolutely bonkers right now. I am ready to move forward with purchase. Philip would you please setup escrow?

Thanks
Yeah;  I had a rough weekend myself, but am back on the upswing.

I just finished taking photos and disassembling it.

I booted it up; and apparently it was last running ubuntu;  so i can wipe the drive and re-install windows 10 on it before I package it up if you want;   
I totally forgot I had it gambling on finding an address with $$$ in it =)

I'll tape antistatic over the mainboard to protect it from the padding Ill be putting in the dead spaces; and probably use something to secure the PSU to the main tray back as it was;  it seems that smarter way to ship it being physically attached to the frame.

If you want me to disassemble it more, I can probably fir the frame into a tube mailer;  but this seems the best way;  easiest to re-assemble;  the frame protects the mainboard in transit, etc.
13  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS/WTT] Onda B250-D8P mining rig on: February 20, 2021, 08:42:31 PM
I will help do escrow since this is for JaredKaragen I will wave my $20  minimum fee.
I will charge only whatever coinbase charges be to send it to the seller.

JaredKaragen and I go back for years.

I sold him this board in 2018

 Cool

I believe this is the correct assembly manual for the frame.    https://spotswoodcomputercases.com/wp/?page_id=9152

Grin


<3 TY phil =)  Much appreciated.

Yeah the manual was close for getting it assembled;  but I remember there being some differences in mine....  I think there are a couple slight differences with the way I set it up because of that I think.
It will be easy to put most of the hardware back into its locations when disassembling; making reassembly a little bit easier.

I have some more running around to do today, help a friend drop a set of rebuilt heads back on his 460; and go to my other friend's auto shop and give him a hand for a few hours to pay for use of his shop lift yesterday.
If I don't have anything pop up for tonight;  Ill get on the imagery and disassembly tonight.

I'm not sure if I have the bag with the allen screwdriver tool and extra hardware the frame came with for assembly...  If I find it I will include it.
At last look (we will see for certain soon) I believe I had 4 or 5 dual-ended PCIE power cables still attached to that miner frame.   If you need more;  they are the standard pinout/interchangeable so easy to add more from a spare supply.
14  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS/WTT] Onda B250-D8P mining rig on: February 20, 2021, 05:15:17 AM
I would be interested in using philipma as escrow. My offer of $400 plus shipping plus escrow fees stands, but I am not interested if escrow is not on the table.

Thanks
Im ok with escrow especially if its with phil;  Ill message phil to see what he says about doing escrow for us....
I could just ship it to him without a second thought.


How would you prefer it be packed?
box built around it assembled
Professional shipper packing
or disassembled and packed/wrapped individually?  

I could probably put enough airpacks into the bulk of the unit to secure it's dead space inside the frame;  but I would be worried about the corners;  Knowing shipping handlers....  I guess that's the main risk of it being assembled.
I could also take it whole to the 'mailboxes etcetera' USPS local professional packing and shipping store to have it professionally packed whole;  but I believe the box would get a lot larger.   Its been quite some time since I have had to ship something this large. (the PSU is most of the weight of it)  I don't want to inflate costs.

I understand; but your concept of a comparison is of just a motherboard; 
foregoes the frame, the PSU, the memory, the HDD, the processor, the Win10 license, etc.....
I honestly forget people pay for things like this these days as I work downstream , I apologize about the apparent lowball.
You have a cool board and I've been looking for P106 tk systems just for the boards.
 I have 7700k procs if you'd like to purchase it id do 200 shipped

I may take you up on that offer... Lets see how smooth the next few weeks goes for me as far as bills.  I have been trying to not dip into the "safety net", but with the price of BTC;  buying a processor isn't a half baked idea right now.
The damned MXM3.0a video card that is the only GTX series card which physically fits in my Precision M4800;  costs $400..... $400 for a 965m.  unreal.
15  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS/WTT] Onda B250-D8P mining rig on: February 20, 2021, 04:39:12 AM

I understand; but your concept of a comparison is of just a motherboard;  
foregoes the frame, the PSU, the memory, the HDD, the processor, the Win10 license, etc.....

Also this model uses DDR4 (LV);  not DDR3.... and that linked model is missing all of the 1x slots.

So I hope you understand;  that direct trade offer was dated.   I could easily sell it for the $400; and pick up a processor locally with a bunch left in my pocket;  back then the 7700k were selling for $350-380;  now $200-250...  This onda;  hasn't dropped in price; in fact, it has only increased in price since the beginning if memory serves... its because its a thick board, good traces, full 16x slots (spaced properly) and not a soldered CPU but a full desktop one which allows for more coin and algo/coin flexibility in certain regards.


$400 plus cost of shipping to KS plus escrow.
What type of escrow/who?  I have always been weary about 3rd parties.

Phillipma1957 can vouch for my honesty and ability to do clean business if you know [of] him.   I have bought from him and have also received hardware with intent to R&D without any issues.
(I know my being absent from here during the low period may add some caution, but I can easily prove to him I am who I say I am still, we have had some "old man" type talks in the past =)
This keeps less speed bumps and cost out of the mix.
I also did a coin sale some time ago (should have a marketplace vouch on my account), and I followed through promptly after receiving payment.
I just sold and mailed out a 1600w PSU to an internet friend/(someone I admin for) in WI yesterday.



Update:  
Please note:  The previous statements in the OP's are dated with the post;   all the drivers were recent as of that date;  so it will be the old blockchain drivers from then, etc.  
It is easy to update it.  I believe I had it on teamviewer and/or used RDP to access it.  If TV is installed, it will be uninstalled/purged.  
Password will be reset to "passwd" on the login account.
I didn't have time to hit the post office or pack the unit;  I ended up spending the time at my buddies shop doing maintenance to the old Honda, and doing work on my lathe at the airport.
I can wrap it whole (create a sized to fit box for it); or what's best is probably disassemble the frame and pack everything wrapped individually in a box...  That would be the choice of the buyer.


After looking it over and it been sitting:
Its as pictured;  except for no GPU's at all in it.   Can be booted up on the integrated graphics no issue (Ill boot it, run some windows updates and remove any personal miner scripts/etc from the startup folder; before I tear it down to pack in a box... this way I know its all good for the next buyer).
It is dusty;  I will get out the air compressor and blow out a bunch of it.
The fans on it, are old;  but I didn't use them for primary ventilation when populated;  I had room airflow handling that (why I never spent on fans and used ones lying around).
The motherboard extra power connectors are all powered except for one of them;  which serves two 1x slots... which is unneeded in 99% of configurations.    FYI I ran 9&10-series and rx5xx cards in this rig as is no issues.

Ill note any more when I get it booted up;  but I don't expect to have anything of merit to note.

When I disassemble it;  I will use a sharpie marker, and mark the corners with numbers as to ease the re-assembly process. (unless you opt for me to cut out cardboard and build a box around the unit fully assembled).
16  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS/WTT] Onda B250-D8P mining rig on: February 19, 2021, 08:42:13 PM
old topic, but I still have the unit.   It has been powered off since XMR changed to Rx.

Offer still stands, would like to trade for a 1080ti, or a 7700k. (I presently have a Prime Z270-A board)

Man;  time has flown by.

Due to the increase in miners once again,  Ill note:   This is still available.

Will ship (will take to a UPS store to package and ship it);  so if this is the case make an offer and you will also pay actually shipping cost.

Local pickup anywhere near the bay area, ca is available.

Accepting cash, BTC, and Venmo
If your still looking for a 7700k Ill accept this trade offer. PM me lets figure it all out.
 If your not still looking for tht pm me anyways I want a board like this and have been looking for them
will be shipping to 76706
TY for the inquiry.   Im gonna pull it out, dust it off some (been sitting since the note above where I took it offline, so expect some dust Wink
Need to box it up (ill probably stuff with packing to take up empty space, and line the outside with cardboard for shipping) then Ill get a weight and dimensions to give you a shipping figure.  
Ill be using USPS with confirmation/insurance.

The rx560 is no longer with the machine; FYI.  It was a bonus for back then, but now its in my friends game pc.

The price of a 7700k right now;  is ~200-250 used based off sold auctions and buy it now from ebay...  MY offer was back when people were still wanting $350+

I was hoping for ~$400 in value from this rig; (the frame and bare board alone are worth more than the 7700K itself right now, and this is ready to go out of the box) so ~$100 on top of the computer itself seems appropriate...
is this ok with you?

Hit me via email: jaredkaragen@gmail.com

Ill be able to respond a little quicker since I will be out and about today getting this boxed up and running a few errands.

I'm still around;  I think I have a wallet with a few K coins in it.
The laptop I had perminantly staking it, fried during the big electrical storms that caught california on fire while people were starting fires everywhere else.

The HDD and its contents should still be intact... so I still have that to go off of.

20  Other / Off-topic / 2020 Absence on: November 18, 2020, 01:41:21 AM
So this is just a friendly Hello....

Been absent from here for the most part all of 2020.     With COVID, lock downs, crazy orders from our governor....  I have had a lot to try and deal with.
Started a manufacturing business.   Ended up buying a beat up CNC mini mill;  Fixing its problems, completely rebuilding it for the most part....

I already have a few product designs, and have a few prototypes floating in the wild.   I am half way through production on my first batch of 10 units of product #1.

Many late nights at my friends shop repairing and tuning up a lathe.

Many late nights of figuring out why my mill was not acting properly....  even burned out the motor controller during a lightning storm.


Anyways.

Still alive.

Still kicking.

Trying to make the best of what looks like a pretty dismal future.

Hopefully good will prevail here in the USA... but it seems like... its far fetched at times.

I got my head up.    Keep yours up too.

Ill try and be around to grace with my knowledge and support once again.     I want to get back into the hardware/software side of crypto again.   I miss it.  More than you know.
