thanks for the pic taco.

i really don't get this.  i've got stable speeds right now around 550 GH/s in the BF GUI yet my stratum pool monitor shows btwn 78.8 and 193 GH/s.  it's been consistently showing this disparity.  

problem is that my Avalons show consistently accurate readings on this same stratum pool monitor of 82-84 GH/s and in its cgminer GUI.

Got antsy, so I cranked down the voltage on the trimpot to 0.840 V on my card that always shuts off.  I'll see if this makes the card last any longer.

Note for users: use a tiny philips screw driver and turn right to increase voltage, left to decrease voltage.

can you give us a pic of the trimpot?

anyone successfully connect to ozcoin or slush?  if so, what addresses are you using?  for instance, my typical addresses to connect aren't working:  stratum.ozco.in:3333, us.ozco.in:3333, stratum+tcp://stratum.ozco.in:3333.

my solo mining stratum port monitor 8889 hashrate shows a huge discrepancy vs. the hashrate advertised in the BF GUI.  i'd like to connect to a pool to see if i see the same discrepancy.

i have the entire Bank 1 at zero hashing (first 4 slots)  Sad  i have 3 140mm fans and one large box fan blowing at it.

have v2.2 H boards with v3 M board.  doesn't matter which H boards go into those slots.

any suggestions?

I'd assume a problem with the M-board. RMA?

i can't think of anything else.

Why is it so hard for the naysayers to realize that there's a worldwide infrastructure being built around this technology, and that this isn't just a silly stupid pretend "stock market" situation happening?

Adoption and faith in the purpose of this new currency is why the value will stabilize and continue to rise. 

Long after the initial rush.

you can't appreciate the level of negativity during the Great Depression of late 2011.  let alone the animosity towards Bitcoin.

take some time to appreciate the content of these necros.  there's plenty more where these came from.

688  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin Shrinking - The Long View on: November 07, 2013, 11:36:08 PM
The long term trend for bitcoin value is contraction, not expansion.

Here's the fact of the matter:

+ Bitcoin just enjoyed more media exposure over the past 3 months than can reasonably be expected to occur anywhere in the near future. There's just nothing newsworthy forthcoming unless there is something scandalous that happens again, and we're just about out of interesting scandals. We've made the rounds from illegal purchasing to hacking to market failures.
  There's just nothing left to get the attention of corporate media. The fact is that no-one cares about bitcoin as a medium of exchange, except a small core constituency of idealists here on these forums. It HAD newsworthy spectacle value as prices skyrocketed and people "got rich quick," but those times are over.  There is nothing left of newsworthy value.

+ The price run-up happened SOLELY on hype alone. There's not much analysis that needs to be done here. It was clearly a bubble that started with the Silk Road coverage, inflated with the mining craze, and ended with the Gox scandal. That's it folks. Bitcoin jumped the shark 3 weeks ago.

+ The current "stability" is no such thing. There is no stability when there's no backing economy.  The only "stability" we're seeing is roughly the same sub 10-15,000 (could be exceedingly lower, and possibly a bit higher though doubtfully) "investors" propping up the price and using trading bots to maintain the appearance of a functioning market and "stability."
  The fact is that the market has been on a slow and steady DECLINE ever since Gox came back online. This is because there is no new blood entering the market, just the same old speculators throwing more of their paychecks into it; BUT, not enough to grow the market. That's why were seeing a steady loss of a few cents of USD value everyday. And this will continue for the long haul.

+ Echoing the same dilemma of 3 months ago when bitcoin began catching on with speculators, "Where is the bitcoin economy."  Well folks, this is it. The list of bitcoin merchants hasn't grown at all, and in fact if you browse the Trade section of bitcoin.org itself, and explore some of the merchants there you'll find that some of them have removed their bitcoin advertisements and no longer APPEAR to accept it. I encourage you to peruse them and see for yourself, because during that excercise you'll also see that basically all businesses listed are extremely small time, mom and pop shop operations, and most of them quite amateur at that.  That is your bitcoin economy. That is what you have to work with now, and for any reasonable foreseeable future.

This is not a thread about the speculation of bitcoin's future, these are the facts.



Lol maybe some of my coins were once yours!

Synaptic was one of the worst trolls around BitcoinTalk.

695  Economy / Speculation / Re: Gold collapsing. Bitcoin UP. on: November 07, 2013, 03:30:37 AM
think of it this way.

the Gold Bull got going back in 2000 at a price of $250.  look where it went.

the current BTC price is only $275.  and we've just gotten started.

Bitcoin is broken to the upside!

Furthermore, Bitcoin is broken to a new high!

Yay!

Its funny how such an obvious and easy money-making exploit has been described in detail and broadcast to the world, yet no one has taken advantage of it.

It was only a few days ago. Give it time.

you really think that highly of yourself, eh?
