Can we get a status update? The first week of Oct. has come and gone.
2  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Bitburner Fury - Hashrate Protection on: September 30, 2013, 10:13:07 AM
What's your order numbers? I'm 110x and haven't gotten one yet.

You should add a clause to hash rate protection about delivery times.

If the product is delayed, you should compensate customers for the decline in hashrate/overall hashrate as a result of the delay.

So if you're late and difficulty doubles, you should refund half the cost of the board.

Two days ago asked for refund in Paypal resolutions centre, for order of $312 (Jala) made at April, 4, 2013. They closed case because it was opened for more than 45 day after the transaction date or did not meet other filing criteria. What I can do next?

Check over here:

lajz has the way to get a PayPal refund, just PM him
5  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Need a PayPal refund for your BFL purchase? on: September 18, 2013, 09:22:06 PM
Chalk up another full refund, with nothing more than one email sent.

I highly recommend speaking to laz if you need a refund from BFL

>Wait, we dont have one

Except that they actually do.  It's called EMC and it's owned and operated by Inaba himself.

THE EMC? I live right next to their Scottsdale location. There's no way Josh owns that company, it must be worth billions.

Do you demand to see the passport of every individual you do transactions with in person?

dude, this in not case, when you buying few gadgets from dealextreme. here will be hundreds or maybe thousands people involved from around the earth and in game will be thousands and thousands of dollars.

..and yes, I think, that in this special and delicate case makes sense to know, who is the guy behind forum nick. next point is common natural skepticism around bitcoin community. This place is like a magnet for cheating, fraud, scam and this kind of acting.

Dealextreme also does thousands of transactions with thousands of individuals, which amounts to thousands and thousands of dollars. Hmmm. Do you demand to see the owner's passport, before you allow other people to freely do business with them?

I want to start this out by saying I think burnin is entirely legit. I can't imagine he has anything to gain by taking Avalon chips without having a use for them like, I don't know, the expertise to make them into usable hardware? If he was truly running a scam, I believe he would have more incentive to 'order' the chips for his customers in exchange for more bitcoin/fiat.

However, this argument is so full of bullshit that I just can't help but argue. Dealextreme has already served hundreds of thousands of customers, and nearly always delivers. When something goes wrong, Dealextreme makes things right when products arrive broken or don't arrive at all. Dealextreme's name itself has value because of this, and that's how they get most of their business.

If I were to open a site that was a clone of Dealextreme, with all of Dealextreme's products all priced $1 lower than their price, than I'd still have close to zero customers until a few customers ordered and(if I delivered) I started to prove I was legitimate. With that, the name of my business would gain (or alternatively, lose) value accordingly. Dealextreme had to prove this too, and I'm sure the day they published their site they had very little business, but after years of reliably delivering, they have built up their client base.

burnin's name has value on these forums, too. This is great, as burnin is going to get more business for it and won't be flamed to hell if he bumps into a problem or two while making and testing the boards. The value of burnin's name, however, is completely subjective. Many people are thinking about sending burnin thousands of dollars worth of hardware and, for many, 30 posts on a forum doesn't provide much evidence of his desires to deliver a finished product to his customers. For that reason, many want reassurance that burnin is legit. I don't agree that asking for photo identification is the proper route, especially with asking for information as sensitive as that found on a passport, but it isn't a completely invalid request.

TL;DR: Unless you have conclusive evidence that burnin will deliver, you probably shouldn't dismiss everyone who has a different opinion than you.

Saying this implies that preorderers knew that bitcoin would be worth $244 only 7 months after buying the rig. Sure it would be a better idea in retrospect but nobody has perfect information. If everyone had perfect information all the time, then yes, no matter how you cut it, all BFL preorders would be a bad idea.

This BFL shit is becoming worse than the Rebublican-Democrat division. Everyone wants the same thing (MOAR GOVERNMENT!) with very slight differences and they hate each other for the slight differences.

Stop trying to make people regret using their currency as currency. Spending bitcoin is the only way to ensure its long term success.

16  Bitcoin / Mining support / Trouble With CPUMiner on: April 16, 2013, 10:34:59 PM
I've recently decided to switch my mining PC from windows to headless Ubuntu, in order to squeeze out a few more hashes. I managed to get cgminer up and running in no time at all, but I've been having some problems with Pooler's CPUminer that I haven't been able to resolve.

I've tried using the stratum proxy(which seems to be working fine with CGminer) to connect to stratum pools, and that worked perfectly, so I'm almost sure it's minerd.

Here's my setup with the stratum proxy:

nice -n 10 ./minerd
./minerd -user xxx -password x -a scrypt


cd mine/stratum-mining-proxy/
sudo ./ -o -p 3334 -gp 9332

This gives me the error:

[2013-04-16 15:26:47] HTTP request failed: The requested URL returned error: 401 Unauthorized
[2013-04-16 15:26:47] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

The stratum proxy says:

2013-04-16 15:26:47,050 WARNING proxy getwork_listener.render_POST # Authorization required

I've tried manually pointing the out the URL to and http://localhost:9332 but these give me the same error.

When I tried running CPUminer without stratum, I pointed to a getwork pool I use this bash script:

nice -n 10 ./minerd
sudo ./minerd -user xxx -password x -a scrypt -url
(I've tried without the / at the end too)

Which gives me this error:

[2013-04-16 15:31:06] HTTP request failed: couldn't connect to host
[2013-04-16 15:31:06] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I feel like this is a simple problem that I've just become blind to after attempting to fix it for so long.

Thank you!

You may want to consider Litecoin mining. It uses the Scrypt algo so it should be harder for a company to design an ASIC that can manage to hash litecoin. As a result, GPUs are more profitable.
19  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Bitcoin is now a default subreddit. on: April 11, 2013, 06:10:43 AM
Not good IMO. The quality of that subreddit has been going down quickly, and I doubt this will help. Bigger communities always have lower quality content (I think its because it appeals to a wider group of people).

I guess it could bring some attention to bitcoin but if they take it like a get rich scheme like nearly everyone else has for the past month, this will only harm bitcoin's long term viability.

Edit: Just checked and bitcoin is no longer a default subreddit. I think it may have been because 5k+ people were on that subreddit all day.
20  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Newbie restrictions on: April 11, 2013, 06:07:05 AM
Due to a mass of trolling, only established posters are able to post in non-newbie sections. You are considered "established" if you have spent 4 hours online and have made 5 posts (new topics or replies).

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

- Newbies cannot upload their own avatars.
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted. (The system automatically checks every 10 minutes and promotes people as appropriate.)

I like the idea, but how did this policy come about? there must be some sort of reason behind it.
