Long story short:
Tor node
Bitcoin node

which would be better of the two, or should i run one on each.... any basic guides anwhere?

You can run both on each, provided they have the resources.

Tor exit node - this is the IP servers see when someone uses Tor
Tor obfsproxy bridge - needed for users in China where the GFC blocks Tor altogether
i2p node - i2p is like Tor if it only had hidden services.
freenet node - freenet is a distributed datastore - everyone stores some of the data (encrypted)

OK, just making sure. Hmm... I believe the longest expected loss run is actually -log(np)/log(q). This follows from the statements made at http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Run.html.

Edit: I believe I see where the 1 comes from... and yet it doesn't seem to work.
-log(1*1/2 + 1)/log(1/2) is about 0.5849625007211561814537389439478165087598144076924810, not 0.5 as intuition would suggest. Does the formula converge towards "correctness?"

I wouldn't believe dooglus. That's clearly a sock puppet account Grin (you've just been waiting for that, huh?)

Heh.  I found them here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=218231.msg2324967#msg2324967

Also, I just remembered and used something you taught me about a year ago: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=191176.msg2325281#msg2325281

Those were the days! I think it was more of a collaborative effort than anything else, though Wink

Now If I could just find the post where I derived the expected number of losses in a row as -log(bets*p + 1)/log(q). Where the hell did I leave that thing? Or maybe you derived it?
Please define "expected number of losses in a row." Are you using mean, median, or mode; are you ignoring wins in a row, etc.

God, that's the second request to add stakes. You guys are like a bunch of poker players. "It's no fun unless it's for real money." Tongue
I just think it would make the game more "honest," and thus more worthy of study. Maybe one of these weekends I'll make a website for it.

We should introduce BTC into this game. Perhaps a buy-in which is distributed proportionally?
However, I suspect that adding real money to the game will make people more conservative and likely to chose "kill." Therefore I think it should be done like so:
KillTrade
Kill(-, -)(+, -)
Trade(-, +)(+, +)

For some positive and negative values (which will obviously influence the outcome).

In the case of at least one person having a net negative, everyone's points can be increased by the absolute value of the lowest score:
PlayerRawScaledPayout
A-1214.3%
B-300%
C2535.7%
D4750%
Total214100%

I'm sorry to the old guy who is railing on me for being new.  BUT I AM NEW.
I was new once. I have no problem with new people.

Again, I'm "railing on" you because you are trying to "buy trust." That's not how it works.
689  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Academic endeavor - FREE raffle for 0.1 BTC on: May 30, 2013, 03:00:59 AM
to be clear, winner will still get paid, despite the old pro rippin' on me for being new.
Oh sure, feel free to give out money. That's welcome. It's the "I gave you 13 bucks so trust me plz" thing that has me worried.
690  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Academic endeavor - FREE raffle for 0.1 BTC on: May 30, 2013, 02:43:46 AM
Ouch, rough crowd.  I'm a newbie, dude.  Take it easy.  In theory at least 0.1 btc are at risk, and the winner could even leave me negative trust if I don't pay up.  What am I missing?
There's no money at risk at all. Also, the negative trust is not a risk either, because your account is so new that you can just throw it away.
691  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Academic endeavor - FREE raffle for 0.1 BTC on: May 30, 2013, 02:32:20 AM
"Trust":
  • The winner gives you feedback - they'll put 0.0 in "risked BTC"
  • The winner adds you to their trust list - I wouldn't trust anyone who would do that
  • The winner says "gee thanks" - not a good indicator of trust

If it's #2, I will be making sure that nobody who trusts someone who trusts the winner is on my list.

A little bit of random speculation?

everytime we touched this resistance we moved up

-Missing Image-

This is interesting! Thanks for showing us this indicator.

Bullshit. Here is the graph: http://bitcoincharts.com/charts/mtgoxUSD#rg90zig12-hourztgSzm1g10zm2g25zxzi1gOBVzvzcv

Start playing. For me the OBV does not look bullish at all but maybe it would help to know more about it than just gut feeling about a rising chart.

It did break through the support once, but it is mostly reliable, so I think it does have some meaning.

Compare the OBV (orange) with candlewick bottoms (blue):

How do I get the hash? This is me:
https://blockchain.info/tx/12612d794b67798729aa00843847b2d975486ade6f8936244079093fb5a1dc4b
and I can prove it with a signature.

When I tried to view source, Chrome asked me to "Confirm form resubmission," which is obviously not what I wanted.

I clicked Inspect Element.
Ah, smart.

Thank you, and yes please Smiley I suppose sending back to the originating address removes the need to prove anything.

Sent, thanks! Smiley

No, thank you Wink I also gave positive feedback with the forum's new trust system Smiley

the free 0.1btc is over already?  Undecided
With BTCUSD hanging around $130, you can't expect promotions worth 0.1 BTC to last long.

No worries. Chrome does that, but I see the transaction. Do you want payment sent to this address?

You're making it hard to solve this problem by not telling us the problem, but I think there might be a trustless solution to this. See for example vanitypool, which allows vanity mining for custom addresses, and only the client gets the full private key.

So, given the customer's public key, it's probably possible to generate an address that you do not have control over, but that the customer will have control over once you give them your own part of the secret.

Ask one of the core devs or someone who worked on the vanitypool spec.
