Dunno why I'm getting spammed for this, but the OP infographic is full of grammatical errors (namely it uses the word "then" where it should have the word "than," and no, those words don't even mean remotely the same thing, even though they are spelled similar. "Then" is referring to time, "than" is comparing two things.)

I already have one of these promo codes from buying a Sony TV. If I bought one of yours, would it add another year to my year subscription that I already have?

You could upload the wallet.dat again to have the new address in there.


Hmm...tried that, even created a new account (only way to import a .dat file it seems) and it still ended up with the same numbers.

I noticed two of my transactions for buying humble bundles aren't showing up in blockchain, which should make blockchain's balance be higher if anything. Every other transaction is intact though.

Also tried looking at the pywallet.py --dumpwallet output and meticulously made sure all of the private keys with matching addresses are intact on blockchain...they're all there, not sure what could be missing. Even did the wallet debug thing and it found nothing missing.

Birdy is spot on - so make sure you keep a backup of your wallet.dat file so that you will have the private key(s) for that address.

You can always send everything from the qt client to blockchain.info to consolidate it.

Is there a proper way to do that? I started blockchain.info by importing wallet.dat to here:

https://blockchain.info/wallet/import-wallet

Does this method of importing not get all of the keys?
5  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Blockchain.info accounting is strange on: November 21, 2013, 05:52:35 PM
I think I understand. But then which is accurate? Block or qt?

Both, it's just that you didn't give one address to blockchain.info, so it doesn't list it (and you cannot spend them from there).
You still own 1.53337621 Bitcoins and could send all of them with bitcoin-qt.

I imported my wallet.dat directly from bitcoin-qt to blockchain, is there something else I should do?
6  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Blockchain.info accounting is strange on: November 21, 2013, 05:47:00 PM
rough explanation:
When you send a transaction in bitcoin-qt it will use a higher amount of Bitcoins and transfer some of it to a new address.
It's kinda like change, you pay $5 dollar with a $20 banknote and get $15 dollar back.
Because this address is missing on blockchain.info you will not see the balance there.

Btw great addon for bitcoin-qt to manage your addresses, it allows you to see the change addresses:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=144331.0

I think I understand. But then which is accurate? Block or qt?

Whats your blockchain btc address?
And yes difference could be due to "change address" but i am wondering why its showing 0 balance.

1WrEg1Ls7AsbfLBDWuMzFkA2KEYcEWUgY is the blockchain address (or more precisely, the one it tells me is mine, 1MxuKm4jdpGqpUSJRE45gbanGsePEkRJnq is the one I've used to receive coins for a long time now.)

What's "change address"?

By the way, blockchain shows I have 1.4862583 whereas the client says 1.53337621. About a $35 difference at the current exchange rate.
8  Economy / Service Discussion / Blockchain.info accounting is strange on: November 21, 2013, 04:54:06 PM
I just started using blockchain.info as opposed to bitcoin-qt, and noticed right away that blockchain says my wallet has fewer bitcoins than the windows client. I started looking at the accounting of both, and noticed immediately that blockchain has incorrectly added figures starting from some of my oldest transactions. Namely here is the accounting that blockchain.info shows:



Not sure how it figures .67 minus .55 leaves a balance of zero.

Am I missing something here?
9  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: CGminer - GPU0: invalid nonce - HW error on: June 23, 2013, 12:15:56 AM
I'm being constantly frustrated with this issue, and I'm still not sure the best way to solve it.

I have my ubuntu server running headless with cgminer, and it is configured to automatically take security updates.
WHY is it configured to automatically take updates?  You aren't running windows.

I think you have identified the source of your frustrations.

Turn off automatic updated.  If it ain't broken, don't break it.

Not all updates, just security ones. The intent is to prevent the server from being compromised, however ubuntu "security only" updates aren't just security updates.
10  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: CGminer - GPU0: invalid nonce - HW error on: June 14, 2013, 03:45:37 AM
I'm certain that none of those are the cause - it's entirely a driver problem. Trouble is I can't get the right driver to work with my newer kernel. It's a linux specific problem I suppose. I'm really wanting it to work on this rig because I use it for oh so many things, but linux GPU support is just horrid.

That not a linux driver error only, that's happen also on windows.
Look like amd made change in their driver and amd_bytealign function didn't work as expected.

If you want to use 13.4 driver, just modify the opencl kernel by removing the BFI_INT optimization which cause the problem on 13.4

How do I do that?

Try running Cgminer in benchmark mode, eliminate network from variables.

--benchmark         Run cgminer in benchmark mode - produces no shares
--debug|-D          Enable debug output

So it's  " cgminer  --benchmark   --debug  "

Benchmark mode results in invalid nonce.

12  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Older catalyst drivers on newer kernels? on: June 11, 2013, 10:23:32 PM
I'm in need of installing older radeon drivers (12.x) on my mining rig, but the installer fails on DKMS with my 3.7.0-7-generic kernel, so I can't install them.

Any linux aficionados know how to work around this problem, other than by downgrading the kernel?
13  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: CGminer - GPU0: invalid nonce - HW error on: June 11, 2013, 08:50:56 AM
I'm being constantly frustrated with this issue, and I'm still not sure the best way to solve it.

I have my ubuntu server running headless with cgminer, and it is configured to automatically take security updates. However it keeps updating kernel versions that break my existing and working radeon drivers. When it does so, I am forced to update the driver. I was at a state where everything was working fine with APP 2.6, however this morning I had a power outage and when the server came back up, cgminer segfaulted.

It seemed that this was due to a kernel incompatibility, which required a driver update. I tried a minor update, which wouldn't install due to some kind of DKMS issue. Only driver that installs is catalyst 13.4. So I updated the driver, seg fault goes away. But now I get the dreaded invalid nonce error (like I've had in the past.) Tried reinstalling APP 2.6, and I get a seg fault. So, I update to app 2.8; no more seg fault, but now I get nonce error.

I like automatic security updates because this server IS exposed to the public internet (its only exposed port protected by FWKNOPD though,) but these compatibility breaking kernel updates have finally done me in, so I'm turning it off (It would be nice if it security updated everything *but* the kernel, and notified me if a very serious vulnerability was found and is in need of immediate attention - otherwise none of these updates have ever been truly needed.)

Having said all of that, is there any known working driver/app sdk combo that works with the 3.7.0-7-generic kernel and bitcoin mining? By the way, this all happens with bfgminer too, old versions and new.

Alternatively, is there a way I can get DKMS installation to work when I install older amd drivers on newer kernels?
14  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Invalid nonces on ubuntu server 12.10 on: May 18, 2013, 09:05:47 AM
I loaded APP SDK 2.6 on there, and tried to start cgminer but it was taking a long time to start, and at this point I was so tired of trying different things that I sort of gave up on this for a day. Now cgminer comes up fine and it's working fine. Going to app 2.6 might have solved the problem.

I've run into another problem though: My hash rate is about 20Mh/s below what it used to be. Could this be due to using a newer driver? If so, which driver version *should* I be using?

Something compatible with the 3.7 kernel obviously, though I don't know what. Card is a 5750.
15  Bitcoin / Mining support / Invalid nonces on ubuntu server 12.10 on: May 17, 2013, 12:26:01 AM
Right now I have three mining rigs, and for a while all three were working fine. However I had to reboot my server that is also functioning as a mining rig, and little was I aware that since I had last rebooted it, Ubuntu (which was set to security only updates) since went through multiple kernel revisions and dkms driver revisions (and strangely enough, these "security" updates to these kernels often seem to break support for my ZFS modules.) When it came back up, that mining node (running cgminer) never came up with it.

cgminer was indicating for every single share that there is a hardware and the nonce was invalid. I know for a fact that this isn't a hardware problem, because I installed steam and ran a game to make sure that everything was working as it should. No glitches or anything, game renders perfectly. I went through the song and dance of repeatedly clearing and reinstalling drivers, trying different ones, etc, and the result was always the same. I also tried using bfgminer instead - same problem. I tried using catalyst 11.11 as is often suggested elsewhere, and that particular driver won't even install (I think maybe it is incompatible with kernel 3.7?)

I've tried updating the APP SDK to 2.8 by the way, problem still exists.

Now, I've been looking all over the place for methods of resolving the hardware nonce issue, and both here and elsewhere most of these issues are old, and I can't tell if there is some kind of game changer about the 3.7 kernel, or the newer catalyst drivers. On one of my mining rigs, I did have problems with cgminer crashing when used with a newer catalyst driver, I had to downgrade to I think an 11 series driver before it would run at all. Apparently the cause of this is due to 5xxx and 6xxx cards not working correctly with cgminer if using the newer drivers, and going to an old one fixes it.

If this also applies to linux, then how would I get this to work? It will be a major pain in the butt to roll back every single driver and other whatnot that upgraded along with that kernel just to use an older version of the catalyst driver, so I'm hoping to avoid that if I can. Anybody have any other ideas? Again, with everything in its current state, games actually run correctly. So other than for bitcoin mining, the graphics driver is behaving exactly as its supposed to. And again, this problem happens in both cgminer and bfgminer with APP SDK 2.8 installed. (By the way, is there any way to determine whether these miners are actually using that one or are using their own compiled in one?)

I think socialists should probably stay away from bitcoin if that is the case, namely due to how difficult it is to tax. Especially if people begin trading bitcoin over the tor network.

By investing in or even mining bitcoins, socialists would be contributing to the decline of socialism. You'd basically see a return to the early days of the US where they relied upon the taxes of sales of certain goods. Services would be unable to be taxed effectively, and income for large corporate entities would be hard to tax (which would be a good thing IMO as corporations as it is don't really pay any taxes - they just push the expense on to the customer.)
do you know that some people, actually wants to pay taxes because they supports the system?

You said you live in denmark earlier, correct? You know denmark is one of many countries who spends more than it brings in. It is dependent upon borrowing. Should there be a global deep economic recession, that system you support will collapse.

I don't know how likely denmark is to have a balanced budget any time soon, but france, england, the US, and japan are all heavy borrowers (Japan is by far the worst) and when that house of cards comes falling down (this is inevitable by the way, my guess is sometime between 8 and 30 years, and the world will place the blame squarely on whatever political party holds the US white house, even though it is a global problem.) Your social programs will collapse along with it. The reality is, we really can't afford to do these things, taxes or no taxes.
number disagrees with you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Denmark

and there are many non-socialistic countries that have a way higher debt/GDP ratio, than Denmark. i think we are doing pretty good.

What number? You gave me a page with a bunch of non-specific numbers. I see this number:

http://www.tradingeconomics.com/denmark/government-budget

That and Denmark's debt is 74% of its GDP. That is a pretty high number.

And what are these non-socialistic countries are you talking about? The US is probably one of the biggest offenders as they spend a ton of money on social programs.
the number disagrees with you: http://www.tradingeconomics.com/denmark/government-debt-to-gdp

That's still a high number, but I was referring external and public debt. I don't recall the source I was reading for the 74%, but I did find this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_external_debt#cite_note-7

External debt for your country is 180% of your GDP. Per capita, each of you owes over 100,000 USD in debt. That's pretty bad.

The only developed country I would say is a model of debt management would be Australia. They actually have a balanced budget, and their debt to GDP is pretty low.

If the skinhead is behaving in a civil manner then I believe that he should serve him. It is unlikely though that a skinhead would go dine and support a jewish restaurant though. Ghandi once said, "You need to be the change you wish to see in the world".
And if he knew you were using that quote in this context....

You do know that Ghandi was a friend of Hitler, yes?
Gandhi was everybody's friend.

I assume you're going to point to the letter, next, and so I will borrow a quote from one of the commenters here: http://www.buzzfeed.com/cconnelly/ghandis-letter-to-adolf-hitler-s3x
Quote
You may be surprised to learn that pleading with a man and then calling him a giant douchenozzle doesn't win many points in diplomacy. There is no indication in the letter that he had an actual face to face friendly relationship with Hitler, in fact it reads as one who is addressing someone they've never met.
And another:
Quote
It is a common Indian practice to address strangers as 'friend' or 'brother'. In fact Swami Vivekanand, an Indian Philosopher , while addressing a conference in Chicago in 1893, started his lecture by saying," My Dear Sisters and Brothers of America.." and he got standing ovation.

Gandhi was very vocal about how he hated Khafirs (black people.)
