1  Economy / Economics / Re: BTC hit 120 PLN, (217/156 as valuable as MtGox high) - did anyone notice? on: June 22, 2011, 04:46:47 PM
I guess I'm stupid, too...because when I look at the chart over at bitcoincharts.com, it looks like BTC did indeed break 120 PLN back on June 8 on Bitomat. Maybe I've been reading this chart wrong all this time?

Not a cent. Haven't contributed much to the community either...just a little help getting folks nooblier than myself set up mining and the occasional witty banter.
3  Economy / Economics / Re: At which price will you sell your bitcoins? on: June 12, 2011, 06:06:56 PM
I don't think i'll actually sell all my BTC.
I might sell on peaks and hope for dips to pickup a few extra BTC.

I'm actually waiting for BTC to go mainstream and to be able to buy goods/services IRL.

I tried this and burnt myself a bit back around the $7-$8 range...gonna hang tight and see what the market does now. It's like a damn roller coaster. Tongue

Tycho is a real class act. If bitcoin had elected officials, I'de vote for ya.

Indeed.

Thanks for the quick catch and recovery. I feel a lot safer knowing you're on the case. Smiley

I can do it. I await your okay. Smiley

I'll just test, if that's okay...kinda low on coinage ATM.

Great!  So do the order and post me an address for the payment when done.  

Order completed. Smiley

Feel free to send the coins back to 15na7GtMaBbcY9XEobWCTeCJ13ZGqJskDq

Your site was very easy to use.

Great!  Just to verify that you sent .72 BTC .  I will send you back 1.22 BTC.  

Correct. Smiley And thank you.

If my dear russian friend who asked me $5000 via LR by email (then $7000, then more, but oh well) read me, let me say this to you:

I do have a question for you, Tycho. It seems like Deepbit is going to hit a 50% mark at some point in the extremely near future at the current rate of growth I've been seeing today. You'd mentioned earlier in this thread that you had no plans to exceed that 50% mark...but that may now be happening regardless. My question is whether or not we would be protected (as a pool) from actually executing the >50% attack on the network ourselves by way of some sort of subversion. I'm not horribly tech savvy (as evidenced by my posts around here, I'm sure), but I do see this as a huge potential issue if steps haven't been made to mitigate that sort of risk. I know lots of people around here have brought this up in different ways, but I just wanted to be direct about it.

Other than that one little concern, I've been having a great run in your pool all week. Thanks for having me along. Smiley

i switched to BTCmine since there was no payout! there isnt even a payout button on the user page. i am getting a little bit suspicious now...
EDIT: upon further investigation i suspect serious botnet activity on the pool
48 Ghash/s with 2000 connected workers indicates a whole lot of slow miners as only a botnet would have...

actually, my CPU miners are connecting and losing connection every so often, my poclbm(opencl miner) isn't connecting at all(once in a while it'll work) and that where the real power is. No, it's not a botnet. The system doesn't work on a payout button system, it works on a "if my miners make XX amount, then send it".

The pool rate is based on 30min average, it is NOT a 'right now' number. since clients are connecting and disconnecting, it's expected to drop to a low number.

Slush's pool is and has always been legit.

Agreed for sure on that last part...it definitely seems unwell right now, though. Sad

Nevermind. Smiley

We could be looking at the end of the IBM dominance for big finance machines if this model for massively distributed/networked capacity takes off.

I never really thought about it like that. Interesting.

Is Tycho an unbiased person to ask?  No offense Tycho, but you get 3% of his massive input which is quite considerable.  Also, to be honest, I am getting nervous about the size of the pool.  Tycho has already said he is investing in mining hardware with his earnings.  There is a lot of potential for corruption.  I don't believe that Tycho would do this, but having such a large pool and still growing is getting scarry, especially since it is rapidly approaching that fearful 51% scarey.

I am not trying to discourage people to use deepbit, just from allowing it to overcome the bitcoin market.

Tycho's already said that he doesn't plan on taking more than half of the total Bitcoin network over (though I don't know how he plans to mitigate that)...if it gets close, no offense to Tycho, but I should be moving on. It's all about the security of the network.

Tycho, Im about to get 1.5ghashes, Please with your honest opinion, What would give SEEMINGLY MORE income
Are you talking about choosing between PPS or Proportional ?

But with this HUGE ghash pool jump i dont know if it'll be worth it to go in a pool (24/7)
Of course you should mine in a pool. Especially considering the oncoming difficulty jump Smiley

Yeah...it's going to chafe in a serious way.
17  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Lowering mem clock to idle speeds SPEEDS UP Mh/s on: May 06, 2011, 09:01:15 PM
Cool.  Gained about 2-3M hashes by dropping it down to 339.  341 and 339 give me the same.  Anything slightly higher or lower give me like 1M less.

This also decreased my card power by 20W, and temperature by about 5C!  Grin

Currently running a single 5830 @ 920Mhz.  Agression is at 7.  At 11 I will gain a few more M hashes.  I get 264Mhash/sec now.
Please try mem clk at this speed, 920/3 + 14, that's 320.66= 320 mhz & post how much Mhash/s u get.

At 920/320 I get 263-264.

At 925/324 I get 265-266.

You might be able to OC that all the way up to 960. Hell, I saw Frankiebits say he had his at 1000 for a while...though I couldn't tell you how he did that. I run mine at 960, and I seem to have one of the most unstable systems on the forum in terms of getting the speeds everyone else is. 960 is damn stable, though. Tongue I get around 290 or so while using the computer, but I can't get my memory clock as low as I'd like. I'd say edge the core clock up by 5 and just keep an eye on it for a bit. Sometimes I'll launch like 3 Firefox tabs with YouTube videos just to make sure the system is stable before I OC it more.

Edit: If you do this, keep an eye on the temp. I use a tool called GPU Observer...it's a Windows sidebar gadget. Too lazy to link. Tongue

darn it, only been mining since Sunday on my 5850 (on Slush's pool) and found my first block this morning.. And got one of the lowest payouts I've ever gotten on the pool hehe 0.028 BTC!

Oh well, I'm sure it evens out, but it would be great to have 50 BTC's right now Smiley

I had earned a total of 46 BTC when I found my first block. In the long run, yes, it all evens out. Smiley

With difficulty rapidly on the increase, does it really for small time miners?   I think that is why the pools are so alluring.

That's actually a good point. Were I more awake, we could do some math on the topic. Tongue I do know that I SS'ed it and posted it all over the place...I was very happy. Just got it a few days ago. Smiley
19  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: to OC or not to OC? on: May 06, 2011, 08:46:38 PM
My computer makes it very, very clear when I've overextended the card...the driver either crashes (and usually restarts) and my MHash/sec drops to almost nothing, or it just locks up outright and I have to hard reboot it. I've also found that I can run my card pretty fast provided I'm not doing anything else with the system. So, I guess it will depend on whether you are actually using the computer while it's mining...or, at all (since sometimes, just bugging the computer when the clocks are unstable will cause one of the previous two outcomes).
