With most likely more than 100 bets, and finally out of the red after a dip to < 50%, I'm going to play it safe and withdraw.

You may not have made me a gambler, but if I was one, I'd use this app. Advice: add a "buy all" button like on the main site, so it doesn't take 2 taps to play.

Oh, port 443 would be nice. I'm on a restricted (+captive portal) WiFi network a few times per week. So far I've been trying to tunnel traffic through DNS first.

Yeah, it's there, does that mean it will eventually clear?
That depends; which one is it?
Transactions need to conform to a variety of rules to be included in a block (confirmed), and these rules are not the same across all miners. If you hop on IRC, a pool operator might be able to include your transaction. Another possibility is to spend the change back to yourself with a ridiculous fee; some custom miners will recognize the net gain and include your tx.

Paper wallets are my use for it. See, for example, http://bitaddress.org. I suppose if one ever wanted to share an address with someone else, this would be a convenient way of doing it, but all I want is the import feature.

Currently I scan the QR code with Google Goggles, then copy it into a client.

Yes it can; lower the number or drop that code entirely.

If you want to waste CPU/GPU cycles, though, please do something like Folding@Home instead.

Maybe the alert system should be used to force client upgrades, it is abit draconian but we can't risk the whole premise and validity of bitcoin because some people are slow to upgrade

Worst idea in the last 24 hours.  That is pretty amazing given the pretty much nonstop run of bad ideas.  There will not and should not EVER be a forced upgrade option for Bitcoin.  Not today, not tomorrow, not a century from now.  Your idea would be a "kill bitcoin" button available to anyone with the resources (either financial or through use of force) to push it.

That's not quite right D&T because we already have a forced upgrade situation imminent!

http://blockorigin.pfoe.be/top.php

When the percentage at the bottom of that screen goes from 78% to 95% then 5% of the hashing power is forced to upgrade or cast adrift.
However, IMHO, this is the only way Bitcoin can progress from a crypto-experiment to a world-beating currency and payments system.

There is a difference between that and the aforementioned force upgrade. One gives you the "or cast adrift" option; the other changes the software on your computer. One is beneficial, the other is a "kill bitcoin" button.

872  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Armory scanning the whole blockchain every time i start the program on: March 11, 2013, 11:35:46 PM
but it does have 2GB

That is not even close to being enough  Sad  You need 4-6 GB to run Armory with the current blockchain, but a less RAM hungry version is reportedly in the works.
Armory stores the whole blockchain in RAM? Ohgodwhy?
873  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Why do I need the whole chain to broadcast a transaction? on: March 11, 2013, 11:32:18 PM
I am fairly certain that you do not need the whole chain to broadcast a transaction. You could create one yourself with raw transactions and then push it. There is no technical obstacle; it's merely a very good design choice.
874  Economy / Services / Re: Generate own random numbers then incorporate into bitaddress.org script (.1 btc) on: March 11, 2013, 10:44:49 PM
I want to generate some addresses using a gieger counter as a random number generator. Lets say I will just manually write down the number of clicks I hear over a certain period of time.

This task has 3 parts (easy I think if you know javascript):

1) Explain where in this script does it describe the random number generation and how it works.

https://github.com/pointbiz/bitaddress.org/blob/master/bitaddress.org.html
Hit ctrl+f, type in ArcFour. Here's the Wiki on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RC4#The_pseudo-random_generation_algorithm_.28PRGA.29
It goes around modulo-adding values together, then using the sum as an array key to come up with a new value to modulo-add. It does this a lot.


Quote
3) Tell me how long I would need to count clicks for if there was an average of 1 per second and explain the logic behind that.
Depends on how regular the clicks are; i.e. how much variation there is. If the clicks appear 1s apart +- 0.01s with 99% probability, then it's extremely likely that you'll get 3 clicks if you count for 3.5 seconds. You now have very little entropy. However, if it's equally likely that you'll get 1 click or 2 in a 1.5 second period, then you're garnering at least 1 bit of entropy per 1.5s. You'll want as many bits as the algorithm allows.

Quote
OR
2) Modify the script so that I can use my own random number
4) Convince me this is idea won't work.
It won't work because I doubt someone will modify the script for you for such a small amount of money. You're better off asking for someone to do it for you for free, or finding someone interested in it. That said, it's probably a simple matter of replacing the mouse-entropy with user-input.

The tutorials are located here for setting up OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec and PPTP on all supported devices:

http://www.bitronictech.net/knowledgebase/72/Secure-SSL-VPN

All of the required information was sent to you in your welcome emails. If you do have any issue feel free to open a support ticket for a faster response then raising the issue in the forums.

Thanks for your business!

It would be nice if you had a tutorial for Linux that didn't use NetworkManager, which is a piece of shit, and Ubuntu, which is a bigger piece of shit. It would be nice to know how to do it properly, with CLI tools.

If you are advanced enough to be using CLI tools, you shouldn't need a tutorial with pictures to hold your hand through the process. Ubuntu works like a Mac, Arch works exactly how you build it. Either use a Gui like NetworkManager, or don't complain when you need to read the man page.

I don't expect a tutorial to hold my hand, but I do expect to have the NAME of a program that I can read the man page of. As I said, I've never used a VPN before. But, I have it configured with OpenVPN, and it's working really well, so I'm happy.
In that case, what OS are you running? On some boxes (say, Arch Linux running X) there isn't* a CLI program to do it; you'll need to run compiled code, be it your own, a well-known one, or something off the AUR. Others come with software built in. For general tunneling, though:
Code:
man route
man ip

876  Bitcoin / Press / Re: 2013-03-08 Erik Voorhees on Peter Schiff Show Today on: March 11, 2013, 09:32:59 PM
I have an audio file of Schiff's thoughts on Bitcoin taken from his show about a month ago.
What's the best way to get it onto this board? The file is ~27MB in size.
Some filehost without throttling / wait times. Mediafire, Mega, Dropbox, and Cubby come to mind. Or just post a magnet link.

Okay, managed to pay with Bitcoin, but it says "Unpaid" on the invoice...

EDIT: Never mind, it changed. Now, to find out how to log in...
Fairly sure WalletBit requires several confirmations before marking the invoice as paid.

What do you mean, "log in?" It's a VPN service; you connect to it. Download OpenVPN or something

To sign up go here:

https://www.bitronictech.net/secure-ssl-vpn.php

Add the monthly plan if you want to use the above coupon. Then choose bitcoin as the payment method at the final checkout page to pay with bitcoin.

I tried that. It asks me for a domain name? Additionally, it says "your company name" in a lot of places...
You actually have to click on the second "Order" button. As in, the one down the page a bit. Bitronich should probably fix that...

Bitcoin cannot "launder" money because it is money.
FTFY Wink
USD cannot launder money, and neither can JPY.
