Gold is probably more prone to swings.  If you're not going to be constantly trading I would stay in silver.  The industrial demand for it is still increasing.

I see BTC Guilds orphan rate back to the correct 1% and Ghash.IO is hovering close to 2%.  That is essentially a 1% fee.

I read that the devs of XMR use botnet to make fake demand for this coin. Is it true?

PS If it's true, I'll be very disappointed in XMR team

That's true.  They also kill kittens with their bare hands and drink milk stolen from a baby's bottle.

Seriously, fake demand from a botnet, WTF!?!

Sapphire builds nice cards, but their RMA process is a pain and like you said you might end with a crappier card.  Just spend the shipping money on the fan and change it yourself.

Does anybody know where I can get the 32-bit cpuminer for Monero?  I have 6 WinXP systems in my office and I'm not switching over to Win 7 anytime soon.
Monero dont work on 32 bit systems

Many of the webpages said Monero was the first CPU Miner to support 32 bit.  I downloaded CPUMiner 2.4 but it looks like it doesn't have support for cryptonight and Wolf0's miner is 64 bit only.

Sometimes my head it causes much ache for great pain not inside but outside on without hair or behind eyes.

Medication always but not sometimes maybe never.  Do you think?

I think you just won.

It always reminds me a skit SNL did of the celebrity Jeopardy and they had Winona Ryder playing Bjork - that's what it sounds like when that character talked  Grin
Or in other words

SNL show talking Bjork Jeopardy for celebrity on TV not real like Winona Ryder not sure.  Funny she talked Winona not sure.  Bjork was other. Do you think?

I love this.  It's nobody's fault. Everybody pointing fingers and not one person saying I messed up.  I know Obama has said he made some mistakes, but I don't ever recall him identifying just one.

And this first lady, oh boy - Hillary has a new "friend".
91  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Obama Wants $67,912 for Every Illegal Alien Minor on: July 13, 2014, 09:09:59 AM
Well when you put it that way it looks bad.  Why not show it as him asking for 1 penny compounded weekly at 10% interest for the rest of you life.  That seems innocuous to most Americans.

Obama's response is like a kid breaking a glass of milk on the the floor and asking you for $5 so he can clean up said mess.

I just happened to be in my local Meijer last night doing some brief food and drink shopping and it really dawned on me as I looked around how most of the patrons looked kind of lack luster. Of course, I don't live in an affluent area by any means but I would fully say the area is representative of what would call the normal American boobeoisie. All of the people I saw with kids clearly looked like they were on the dole somewhat and those that weren't looked like they were keeping purchases to a minimum. Then, I'm also noticing the workers doing their duties occasionally and I kinda felt bad for them knowing they were making likely minimum wage w/ little hope of much else, especially those that were in retirement age and beyond. My takeaway value was that even though some of these people drive new cares, there's not a whole lot of pep in their steps by and large. I often wonder as I see large groups of people if I'm the only one that currently has Bitcoin or knows anything about it. And then, I realize how hard life will be for these people and they may not have a clue how things are shaping. But hey, at least they have their smart phone. Smiley

Let them have cake, or at least an image of it.  Hence all the Hollywood blockbusters with great CGI and music to make people feel good while they live cover up their unhappiness.

I would be that middle class that keeps my shopping minimal.  Putting all my reserves into BTC.

Most people would find it funny that the Republicans would lead the charge against the DEA since they assume Pot and Democrats go hand in hand, but state rights have always been supported by Republicans.

Looks like they're teaming up - somebody needs to look for new work.

MS-13 is more powerful than some of the bottom tier countries.  They have an economy that outstrips about 10 US states.  They planned this crisis well in advance and have been running records amounts of product through the border while the agents are "offline"

It's all just procedural.  Here in LA if the cop pulls you over and you don't have a license or insurance you just say you're illegal and they won't issue you a citation or impound your vehicle.  If they get a hint your here legally then you pay out your ass.

If that's the rules they wanna play by, then I need to learn a new game  Roll Eyes
96  Other / Politics & Society / Re: The Pirate Bay - Two of it's founders are now in prison on: July 13, 2014, 08:51:38 AM
Well this was bound to happen sooner or later.  I saw something on TV a few nights back about Kim .com and how he's going to go down soon.

The motion picture and music industry is more powerful than Big oil in America.  Big oil makes money.  The media companies make equally big profits and can brainwash people and can sue you for $10k per infringement off of one copyright.
97  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: day trading - what's the catch? on: July 13, 2014, 08:36:48 AM
Well other things may have been happening in crypto around that time to cause a price drop, but it could be down to manipulation.

I think that a lot of people have it in their minds that a piece of news should have a massive, positive impact on the price whereas actually it can see the coins overbought and then dumped.

Look at when Litecoin landed on Huobi, people were talking of a $50 Litecoin, it hit $22 then tanked hard - it was overbought and whales dumped their coins on all the people rushing to buy thinking that it was going to make them filthy rich.

But I believe ltc has been oversold, and it has already reached the low at ~0.01 btc last week. Smiley

Yup, it's surprising how much Litecoin has dropped over the past few months. There was a time not that long ago where 0.035 BTC was the supported rate for 1 LTC. Then it dropped to around 0.025, and now it has nose-dived massively.  It was believed that Litecoin would follow Bitcoin, both up and down, but that has definitely not been the case of late.

Bitcoin has been very strong - a lot of funds have moved from classic coins like PPC, NMC, LTC to newer coins like DRK and beyond. Daytrading is very risky, mostly when buying into rising prices.
There are very few uses for LTC other then speculation. If people have no way to use LTC then they have no reason to purchase LTC.

This is true only to an extent. This was true for bitcoin as well, at some point. I'm not going to speculate on how much infrastructure development we'll see in LTC, but for merchants and payment processors that are entering the bitcoin realm, LTC becomes quite accessible with little additional development needed.

True, but there is little benefit for bitcoin-accepting merchants to accept LTC (or any other altcoins) as it won't bring many new customers to them IMO.

The main benefit would be speed and perhaps decreased volatility if there's a 2 coin index for pricing.  Sometimes a single block confirm can go up to 90 minutes on Bitcoin which could be an issue for some buyers.
98  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: GPU Mining. on: July 13, 2014, 08:27:21 AM
I think it's just like CPUs. CPUs used to be profitable, now it would be a total joke to try to mine with a CPU. I think gpus are headed that way, if not already there. It could be fun to tinker for a bit with it to get your feet wet with mining though. I did it for a while but then it wasn't worth it.

Pretty much so, unless there will be a hugely successful ASIC-resistant coin.

The problem is if a coin becomes successful somebody will want to develop a specific machine just for it.  If BTC stayed at $0.10 there would be no ASICs for it. People wouldn't even bother with GPUs for it.  The ASICs follow the money trail.

It typically enters if you jump into the water with your mouth open or don't hold your nose when you jump in.  Probably best to swim in a chlorinated pool to avoid the brain munchers.

Enough with these Jesus Christ answers. If we are going by that logic Homer Simpson is the most important person as well.
Oh guess what, there is no proof that he ever existed either.

yeah there is
Jesus is a historical person

however, his acts are probably bullshit Cheesy

Nikola Tesla, there wouldn`t be bitcoin if he hadn`t invented electricity.


he should of been insereted

I mean, Albert Einstein was a smart man
but he's over hyped
he didn't invent anything so important to humanity as Tesla did

So you are telling me that the machines that Tesla prototyped are more revolutionary than discovering the relationship between energy and matter, space time?

Jesus and Mohammed have probably led to more deaths in their name than people they have saved.  If you put them on the short list Hitler and Genghis and Alexander should be on that list.
