Watch the miner logs - bfgminer display up to ica14 by default - not sure how to reset it.

Mtgox does not recognize my old login or new login.... Don't have much in there, but would like to trade again..

Bitcoin = and encrypted store of value (enter your favorite currency)

A storage of wealth or a digital lock box - Al Gore ought to like it.

A container for currency.....

two linuxcoin machines

One with two XFX 5830 - no issues
One with XFX 6970, and 6870 - no issues

both on USB stick, persistance...

I started a miner from X root window.

What is the best way to kill the miner/python application when logging in remotely from SSH?

I could just kill the pid, but not there to test the result, don't want the card running out of control....

I had the video error after I booted my persistance linuxcoin on one system then took it to try on another - didn't feel like troubleshooting so just reinstalled linuxcoin on the usb stick - voila - it worked!

MSI 870-G45

Inexpesive, works good.....

Just donated coinage - keep up the good work.

Have it running on two machines, using USB with persistance.

Two 5830's running nicely together.

I 3rd the comment - make the screensaver disabled by default.

10  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: What do you guys think of this rig? on: May 25, 2011, 02:29:41 AM
My solution is to stick a HD5830 or similar card in an old pc (3-4 years old) with no harddrive, maybe 1gb ram (whatever it has), upgrade the power supply, and run the system off linux on a USB stick....about as cheap as it can get for me....
...until the bitcoin return and heat become unbearable....

You never know, some genius might be able to double or triple the throughput on these GPU's....then it's game on again...
11  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: How to mine on Linux? on: May 20, 2011, 12:52:08 AM
Found Linuxcoin..... I might try it.....

If not ubuntu or Centos
12  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: How to mine on Linux? on: May 19, 2011, 11:46:06 PM
Thanks for the link.

If I just want a command line linux install - no desktop - what is the simplest linux install, i can probably figure it  out from the link, but thought I'd ask - machine will not be used for anything but mining....

Distro's most familiar with are Gentoo and Centos (leaning towards)
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Difficulty increase - 60% on: May 19, 2011, 12:44:28 AM
I've been running about 500 MH/s for about a month - as soon as I can convert enough bitcoin, I'll probably be doubling that with another card, hopefully in a few weeks - if bitcoin prices hold, I'll add more as funds arrive - got the space, the juice and a cool room... it's a no brainer....

Thanks for the links - I will check them out.

15  Economy / Economics / Bitcoin accounting... on: April 10, 2011, 10:07:08 PM
Ok, any accounting gurus here?

Let say I've got a good ecommerce friend to accept bitcoins.
He offers up the checkout page and gives the consumer the option to pay in bitcoins, and everyone decides to pay in bitcoins....hurray a success, or so we think....

The merchant would still like to complete the sale in their backend accounting in USD to properly record events to accounting - this is a legal business!
Each sales invoice is tendered as USDBTC to store it separate from other tender options. Tax is collected and posted in USD to the correct accounts.
We know that the amount in USDBTC represents USD that was paid in bitcoins, and our online conversion process was done correctly in realtime on the website.
From the consumers perspective the transaction was completed in bitcoins and they sent the correct amount of bitcons.

At the end of the day the accounting dept has to reconcile the USDBTC ( lets say $1000.00 in sales USDBTC to keep simple) tenders into bitcoins.

Each sale could have a different exchange rate...complicates things for accounting even more.

Accounting would need to convert the USD into bitcoin.

Lets say you enter something like the following in your accounting.
Assume exchange rate is $1.00 = 1.25 bitcoins
Credit BTCUSD for 1000.00 to get the balance to zero
Debit BTC for 1000*1.25 1250.00 (should already be in your bitcoin wallet).
Debit 250.00 to what (the business will not put this in miscellaneous income)  Undecided

Sorry if this is trivial ... it will not be to small businesses...

16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: GPU mining newbie questions on: April 09, 2011, 04:29:25 PM
I found the gui miner helpful to understand this whole process:

You might need to install the beta to use some of the alternate miners.... the thread is easy to follow.

Motherboards and video card offer software to monitor heat, and processing statistics.... you will have to research what is available for your specific setup...

Thanks Alex.

Dropbox and truecrypt - cool solutions.
18  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Get 1BTC for signing up for Dropbox! [Limit 8] on: April 06, 2011, 04:04:09 AM
Just sent a private email - this is my third post - hope this works

19  Economy / Economics / Re: Where do you keep your bitcoins? on: April 06, 2011, 03:59:06 AM
If someone knows whoo runs Truecrypt - they need a bitcoin dontation link on their site.
20  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: RPC Miners (CPU/4way/CUDA/OpenCL) on: April 04, 2011, 01:55:44 AM
Just setup bitcoin - pretty cool....

Using AMD x4 955 MB getting about 6100 khash/s on standard cpu
Getting 16K on Nvidia GeForce Gt430 using rpcminer-cuda with default gpu settings

Does this sound about right?
