The fee needs to be changed to 0.0001

I'm sick of my transactions taking an hour to get confirmed.

I'm still waiting!


There is it already.

[...]

some of the most intelligent people on the planet were denied work, or disregarded as crazy for decades before they were recognised for their brilliance. im not saying this is the case here, but just because the majority think something to be false, it doesnt make it so.

but im not about to take it seriously either.. obviously not until something substantial and provable is provided.

The way he does it is just not the way to go about it.

Note: There is no special version of Armory needed for the offline computer, and it does not need to be the same operating system as the online computer. As long as you can install Armory and use USB drives, it will work.
https://bitcoinarmory.com/tutorials/armory-advanced-features/offline-wallets/

The Ubuntu case is special, since Armory needs some additional software packages that are not in the general release of Ubuntu.

Whichever you choose, make sure you get it from the official site and check the file hash at least.

This article, posted March 2014, is outdated about the alleged "hack", but has some interesting trivia about MtGOX:
http://www.wired.com/2014/03/bitcoin-exchange/

I wasn't aware that Jesse Powell, who founded Kraken, was a close friend of Karpelès and Ver; so much that he rushed to help them after MtGOX was hacked for the first time, in 2011.

Is this 2011 ^ event the same event as this one?:

Quote
Remembering the period when Mt. Gox had been taken offline by denial of service attacks, Shrem recounts Karpeles' reaction to the issue:
Quote
“Remember  Mt Gox went down the first time and it was like, a Friday, and Roger and Jessie were helping him out and Roger's [says] to Mark 'what time do you want me come in tomorrow?' like Saturday morning to help”

“Mark's [says] 'no problem, we'll deal with it on Monday', and they're like 'you're shut down, the customers think all of the money's lost, you've been hacked, everyone's flipping out, people have you know [have] hits out on you, you want to go back to work on Monday? He just didn't care about anything”.
http://cointelegraph.com/news/113376/charlie-shrem-mark-karpeles-wanted-to-take-the-weekend-off-after-mt-gox-collapsed

Yes, of course.

You're right, I should have read the Wired article in full, it matches Shrem's account of what happened at the time:

Quote
Ver and Powell were set to work through the weekend, but when they arrived at the company’s tiny office that Saturday, there was a surprise. Mark Karpeles had decided to take the weekend off. The two volunteers were flabbergasted. “I thought that was completely insane and demoralizing for the rest of the team,” Powell remembers. On Monday, Powell says, Karpeles did return to work, but he spent part of the day stuffing envelopes. “I was like: ‘Dude why are you doing this? You can do this anytime. The site is offline. You need to get the site online.'”



As others have pointed out, Jesse Powell was not a friend of Mark, but a friend of Roger Ver, who was a friend of Mark.

Maybe they became friends? They met again for lunch a month before MtGox went down. Let's call them buddies?  Smiley

Quote
Powell last met with Karpeles in January, before news of the latest hack broke. He now runs a competitor to Mt. Gox called Kraken. They had lunch in Tokyo, and Karpeles seemed unworried about Gox’s future. He was excited about his Bitcoin Cafe. “It was probably some light for them in a very dark world of dealing with banks and customer complaints all day,” Powell says. “I’m sure that Mark has been very stressed for a long time and probably the Bitcoin Cafe was a fun project.” But now that world is even darker.

The article doesn't say or even imply that Powell was a close friend of Karpeles. What it says is:

Quote
After Mt. Gox was hacked for the first time in summer of 2011, a friend asked Powell to help out, and soon, the San Francisco entrepreneur found himself on a plane to Tokyo. After landing, he rushed to Shibuya station, where he was met by his friend, Roger Ver, one of the world’s biggest bitcoin supporters who just happened to live across the street from Mt. Gox.

Still around  Smiley  Just did some maintenance on 84.200.34.113 today. Apart from that, AFAICT, it's been up all the time.

ingat guys !!!

btc is on the way to 50 $ ,btc will test the support 50 $ this year ...

Do you have any source or link for this info? Really BTC to go down at $50?

Anyone's guess is as good as anyone's else's.

If we're at 50 longer term, anyone mining with electricity above ~0.04 US cent will mine at a loss. (Assuming same difficulty and hardware already paid off). Needless to say that this is a very low price for electricity that can not be had in many places.

I'm way behind on the learning curve on these, but... I a few of these boards that I'm in the process of getting setup. I'm attempting to launch four from the same cgminer instance, but am having syntax problems with my command line and naming the units.

Example:
Code:
--hfa-name left,midleft --hfa-options left:420@780,midleft:437@770
Launches both devices, but names one mid,left and the second left. The name discrepancy does not pass the commanded core and voltage settings.

Searching, I found:
--hfa-name <arg>    Set a unique name for a single hashfast device specified with --usb or the first device found

I'd like to get these to constantly have the same physical habanero be device X at restart withe the same name, core, and voltage settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

--hfa-name sets the name for _one_ unless you seperate them with --usb. Since you only have four it's probably easiest to connect one by one and start cgminer four times each time with a different name.

Are there any other lighter wallets I can use where I don't have to have the whole blockchain on this system? My computer is volatile at the moment, this motherboard I'm using now could fail at any moment.

I know there would be lighter wallets but looking for something where I can just dump my wallet.dat file into and get cracking. I have my private keys dumped on hard copy.

I'm only aware of the wallet.dat dump at blockchain.info. From there you then could do a transaction to a thin client like Multibit or Electrum, if you really must use a light one.

Is there something wrong with using a virtual private network?

Seems to me you'd have to ask Cloudfare that question.

I only commented because you made it sound like the problem might face a majority of users. You did not mention Cloudfare/VPN to begin with.

I'm having trouble dragging the map to navigate it. It didn't have this problem before.

+1

Me too. Actually the first drag is ok, but once I click one of the circles, I can't drag anymore. This was working fine just a few hours ago.

This site has become very difficult to use. Between the poor/zero scrolling performance and those frustrating captchas, the whole thing is incredibly unattractive. Which is a shame, as it was at one point the best merchant acceptance map.

I use the site since it started and never seen a CAPTCHA? Where do you get it?

Every time I load the site. And the site uses Cloudflare (the devil's captchas, lol). It only started a couple of months ago

Very odd.

No it isn't, Cloudflare seem to do this with every single website they protect. It's likely an anti-DOS measure, the reason this happens is almost certainly because I access the website through a VPN proxy IP

That's not what I meant. It's odd you get it and I don't get it at all. Never.
