I can log into my wallet just fine. I am seeing weird transactions though -- from these guys:

Our lord and savior Yeezus, of course. The whole trademark thing was just for publicity.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Can you see the blockchain being used to register votes in general elections? on: March 17, 2014, 02:25:39 PM
Can bitcoin technology be used to end election fraud globally?

No, absolutely not.

In any form of voting, and individual cannot have ANY means of proving which way they voted. Why? Because allowing voters to prove how they voted opens the market to vote-selling.

Voting must be done in such a way that: I, as an individual, cannot prove to any other party how I voted. It doesn't matter if the system is pseudo-anonymous like Bitcoin -- I can still show someone my private keys / sign a message / whatever.

There is also no way, mathematically, to 1) verify that each individual is authorized to vote and votes only once, while 2) not allowing that individual to prove which way they voted. You need to trust a third party for that.

Just wait the 1 million usd forum software it will be finished soon. I'm pretty sure the avatar feature will be included.

RMT is defined as "earn ISK in-game, then get something out-of-game for that (excluding more game time)". You can buy PLEX -> sell for ISK, that's fine. But not the other way around.

I don't know if you heard about the "Unholy Rage" operation. Basically CCP decided it's time to kill RMT, jumped around and banned thousands of accounts, and set up many automated systems to detect and ban RMT. Essentially, if you trade something with someone you're not connected with (ie haven't talked to / are not in the same corp / haven't talked in local), you're going to get flagged.

This is the dev blog about it.

The war against the RMT element continues. We strive towards driving their operating costs to unsustainable levels. Our objective is to get rid of them, plain and simple.

This is a deeper explanation into why RMT is a bad idea.

There's also the whole legal "if you let people earn real money in-game, you're a money transfer business, enjoy your AML." Entropia Universe had to jump through massive hoops for that, and I think they eventually discontinued it.

Nothing is illegal in the EVE universe BTW.

Except bug exploitation and RMT.

bitterisk wants to start RMT, and the ISK transactions will be reversed in a few months time (as always happens when an RMT gets discovered).
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: blockchain and bitcoin client is different... on: March 13, 2014, 12:44:16 PM
The extra 0.18x went to a change address. Your client created a new address for this change, and it's held there. It's still in your wallet, just under a new address. Your client will handle this transparently, don't worry too much about it.
8  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Please help me understand this... on: March 13, 2014, 12:15:47 PM
Yes, that does help. Thank you. But doesn't it go against what was said in this thread? The link brings us to a member of the Cointerra team who is stating that he basically had everything to do with making the ASIC card. Where would he do this?
Like Deafboy said, these companies design the chips, while Global Foundries, etc physically produce the chips.

Why do they still go to companies like Open-Silicon for ASIC design and development (well, I'm not sure if they do but I know Butterfly Labs does)?
Open-Silicon provides manufacturing operations management. You give them designs and a sum of money, and they deal with individual factories, production lines, etc.

Global Foundries (a fabricator, also something to do with "tape out")
Tape-out is where you make the final set of modifications to a design. Basically the step right before the physical manufacturing. Read:

Invalid JSON was received by the server.
An error occurred on the server while parsing the JSON text.

What command(s) are you running, exactly? After bitcoind -daemon.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Can't get my 280x going in desperate help bounty on: March 13, 2014, 11:39:54 AM
When I insert both, Xserver (donno what is this) wouldnt start, xinit/xstart wouldn't work,
What do you mean by "wouldn't start"? What's the error message?

Other info: my psu is 750w bronze
That won't handle both cards at full load, this review says 365W per card...

My mobo is F2A88X-D3H, it has 2 pciex16 (one x16 one x8)

The slots are railed together, meaning that when you plug something into the x8 slot, the x16 slot gets throttled down to x8. Your problem might have something to do with that (the cards don't like x8?).

Also, do you have the cards bridged together or no?
11  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Are empty blocks without txns allowed ? on: March 13, 2014, 07:22:12 AM
This most likely happened because the miner did not receive any transactions between the last block and this one: block 290330 is timestamped 06:29:04, while the block in question is timestamped 06:30:18.

Someone got very lucky.
12  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Free Transaction, BitcoinQt 0.8.6beta on: March 12, 2014, 01:17:12 PM
Any one can guess, how long it can wait for confirm?

0 fee is generally a bad idea. You can calculate your transaction's priority with:
priority = sum(input_value_in_base_units * input_age)/size_in_bytes

So we have:
(160000000*281 + 50000000*390 + 150000000*375 + 150000000*141) /669
= 212,047,832

57,600,000 is the cutoff, so you're quite a bit above that ("high priority"). However, 0 fee transactions always take significantly longer to be included in a block.

To answer your question: a couple hours would be a good bet.

I hope you realize this is a comedy sketch. It's not meant to be serious.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: WTF Jimmy Wales aka Wikipedia ? on: March 12, 2014, 07:20:45 AM
You can't honestly expect Wikipedia to put a BTC donation address on the bottom of every page. Even this forum doesn't do that.

Instead, this forum has a "DONATE" button in the top menu -- similar to how Wikipedia has a "Donate to Wikipedia" link on the left navigation pane. I'd be happy with a Bitcoin address on that donation landing page.

Is the issue money or developers time??

It's a whole Big ThingTM.
16  Other / Meta / Re: for gods sake, we need more security on: March 11, 2014, 10:32:26 AM
2FA would be great. GAuth is stupid easy to implement, or you could go the hosted route if you like having someone to blame.

Then again, avatars have been broken forever, so I don't think implementing new features is too high on the priority list right now.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Basic IQ test on Satoshi's identity on: March 07, 2014, 02:42:23 PM
Surely the people running this forum had his IP address and traced it through and found it was running through proxies

Theymos and others have stated that Satoshi always used TOR.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Do we want Satoshi Nakamoto to stay a mystery? on: March 07, 2014, 02:36:20 PM
I think if people really would want to know who he is, someone would already hack his accounts and trace his ip or something.

Nothing to find there, theymos and others have mentioned he always used TOR.

Bitcoin is a decentralized network, not sure if it was planned but not knowing Satoshi at this point is a good thing.  It forces developers to work together without a king to issue decrees.

Precisely. Just like the software is decentralized, the human management behind the software is also decentralized.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What to call 0.001 BTC? (5 BTC Bounty) on: March 07, 2014, 01:20:20 PM
1$ = 1M satoshi

1$ = 100K satoshi

1$= 10K satoshi

1$= 1K satoshi

That just sounds like we're talking about Zimbabwe dollars...

Anyone can create a key with any name and email address they wish. They can then sign any other key, with any date they choose, and upload it to a keyserv without the knowledge of the original keyholder. I can create a key right now for "Our Lord Yeezus" and sign Satoshi's key.
