The divorce rate has never been higher. Single-female parenthood is at an all-time high as well.

You know good people who know how to get along in the world, edd. From the groups I've visited and people I met, a good portion of first-world society is having it really rough.

The reasons -- I'll discuss at a better time. It seems my original post insulted half the forum, heh.

I'm not saying the people I know are all successful, happy, and in fulfilling relationships. You just posted a list of some very specific characteristics and I was pointing out that it does not apply, as a whole (or even a significant portion of it), to anyone I know.

Let me sum up the average man's life for you:

>man goes to college
>man works his ass off
>man gets middle class job that he finds boring as sin
>man gets married
>man gets three kids and a dog
>man eventually pays off his massive student loan debt by working nights and weekends.
>man gains 50 lbs
>man's wife loses interest in him
>man loses wife, kids, and house in one year
>man drinks himself to death wondering what he did wrong

Why the hell should I listen to the status quo when it's usually ending up like this? Fuck listening to society. Fuck listening to your elders. Fuck the status quo.

I think you may be working under some false assumptions based on television and movie portrayals of "the working man."

I'll be 40 next year and I don't know a single person that fits the above description.

This is true Edd,  I guess I should put down any fears of running out of addresses huh? Wink

The trick would be managing what could be a growing repository of addresses and figuring out how to move the BTC out without having to do it manually.  Although if that was the hardest part I would survive.  Just have to assume if my store does well it could be dozens, wow maybe a hundred sales a day!   I would get carpel tunnel ha!

So would the plugin, keep the wallet stored locally on the site, or would it have to hit a client machine where a wallet was stored... ah.. the details..


You'll be selling physical goods, right? You can pre-populate the plugin database with thousands of pre-generated BTC addresses that go straight to your wallet.

The only reason to hold bitcoins on the server that's running your website would be if you had to receive and send bitcoins to visitors automatically, like with a gambling/game site or exchange.

No, the tricky part is associating the right bitcoin address with the right order in a human readable and manageable interface. So far I haven't found a plugin that does it even though it seems simple enough on the surface:

  • Customer A places an order.
  • Plugin pulls unique BTC address from database and presents it upon checkout.
  • Customer A sends bitcoins.
  • Plugin enters that address into a field along with name, email, shipping address, etc.
  • You watch the blockchain or your wallet for the payment and send the goods once payment has been received.

Ideally, it would be great if a plugin could also watch the blockchain for you and just send you a notification that the payment has been made, but I think that's probably too much to ask unless there is a separate service it ties into, like an e-wallet API.

@Fordy,  I would "LOVE" to see what you could come up with.  Honestly I don't even mind something that is slow and cumbersome, so long as it keeps track of who made a payment, how much it was and what it was for.  I think the validation is the hard part.  At what point does a payment "post"?  and how can the plugin/software see it?   I feel like there has to be a more elegant solution than creating a new bit-coin address everytime you need to get a BTC.

 


I might be able to help you out. I've been doing a few bitcoin things for WordPress, and a payment/shopping plugin is something that I would be interested in putting together.

Actually, creating a new address for each transaction is the most reliable and verifiable way of recording your sales. It'a a built in unique receipt of payment for you and your customers that can't be disputed.

I'll buy the candy.  How much do you have to sell and how many BTC do you want for it?

Well, I'm giving some away in the goodie bags, but the Bees Brothers did sell me additional that I was going to use with some BitBrew deals. I'm sending you a PM.

Ordered 2 mediums!  Leaving for Mexico this morning in half hour.  May not have internet for a week. 

Looking forward to my bit con shirts!

We'll see if I can spread bitcoins to Mexico!

Talk to everyone in a week.

I just finished packing your shirts and other goodies and will ship them out today.

Everyone else, I still have plenty of shirts, candy, buttons, stickers, etc.

If you could create one that looked and worked well and made it available at wordpress.org, I bet you'd get a ton of BTC donations. I know I'd send some.

This is a cool idea, I'd love to deface sign some euro bills Cheesy

When euro bills will be supported by this service?

I'll be moving this game to another domain and making it a bit more user-friendly. Supporting currencies other than the US dollar is definitely a priority but it may be some time before I get around to it.

Since I seem to be suffering from a bit of insomnia, I figured I might as well put a few ideas down before I forget them.

Sponsors pay for shirts.

Visitors may register and get sent a shirt for free. (One per address, of course.)

One random shirt has a QR code containing a private key which holds one BTC. All other QR codes are clues.

Clues send players on a geocaching treasure hunt and the grand prize is the private key to a wallet publicly published on the site which grows until it's claimed or a pre-determined amount of time has passed.

1050  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Geocaching for bitcoins on: March 21, 2012, 01:02:16 AM
Ok, then it can be put together. So now, how do we market the idea?

First, we get this horse head mask, then... Seriously, I'm working on it. A better reply is forthcoming.

~Bruno~


Marketing for this is really the easiest part, IMO.

The tricky part is designing the game in a fun and unique way.
1051  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Best way to Accept BTC via Wordpress Store? on: March 21, 2012, 12:05:28 AM
I'm setting up a Wordpress store-front for a new business I am starting, and I would LOVE to accept BTC as payment right off the bat.  That being said unlike the paypal payment gateway where its nearly completely automated.  I do not mind processing the BTC sales manually (meaning, Realize BTC payment, and issue a manual email response) But I would like some kind of a payment gateway that at least accepts the BTC, and the shipping information etc etc.

This is for a physical durable good product. 

Any ideas, I was currently looking at Bit-Ping but I'm not sure its going to do what I need.

I utilize wordpress on all my sites but I haven't come across anything that works without some pretty heavy hacking (heavy for me, anyway). What I currently use is a plugin that I modified slightly that notifies me by email when an order has been placed so that I can forward a BTC address. It's slow and cumbersome but I don't usually have more than one or two orders in a day.

I've got a few possibilities I'll be looking into and I'll let you know if any work out.

I'll take one goody bag to Korea if you don't mind filling out the customs form for it and finding out what shipping would be.

I don't mind filling out the forms but it looks like I'll need a postal code to get a quote.

I'll also take a toad fish in your avatar.

Would you like some kimchi to go with that?

Due to popular demand, I'm posting images of the Bitcoin Conference t-shirts I still have (S, M, L, XL):

Front:



Back:



It's hard to read in these images, but the second line says "March 2012."

I also still have plenty of goodie bags with other stuff you can have for only the cost of shipping. Adding a shirt increases the cost by 2 BTC.
1054  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Geocaching for bitcoins on: March 20, 2012, 08:18:54 PM
That's not too bad. Where do you get the iron-on or do you know how to make them yourself? I've never done that so I have no idea how difficult it is.

You can get them here or at Walmart: http://h71036.www7.hp.com/hho/cache/344461-0-0-225-121.html

You print it out on your printer just like if you were printing anything else. Very easy. Even the ironing aspect is easy.



~Bruno~

Okay, that could work. My t-shirt guy could probably get the shirts for even less. I could have him print a logo and maybe a bitcoin business sponsor ad, while leaving a big enough space for the iron-on.
1055  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Geocaching for bitcoins on: March 20, 2012, 05:45:58 PM
Yep! Can definitely bootstrap this idea to geocaching.com: http://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.aspx?guid=45874e01-e266-43d9-b6d9-09baaf9b04ec

This might be something I'd be willing to re-work SearchingForSatoshi.com for. Maybe to run alongside the idea of linking paper money to bitcoin addresses or somehow incorporating one idea into the other.

(This post written mainly to subscribe.)

searchingforsatoshi.com would be awesome for this sort of thing.




I really like the idea of having a t-shirt with a QR code which reveals a encrypted key (or part of one) or a clue or a unique URL, but I verified with the guy who did the shirts for the convention, it will be relatively much more expensive to print many shirts with a different QR code on each than to have shirts with identical prints.

Also, a sponsor might be convinced to pay for a new shirt or three for the sake of the game, but what happens if it doesn't get worn? How many shirts should be sent out to make for an interesting hunt and how much time should be alotted with no activity before considering starting over?

Now if Atlas and I had both gone, that's different. I'm sure plenty of people would have joined just to see us make out.
Damn right.

I could have charged admission and made a fortune!
In San Antonio? Maybe try Pattaya next time.
Then only gay Bruce wannabees will show up.

I think that's what he was implying.  Wink
I figured you guys would put on a better show.

I'm certain even forum members that wouldn't normally be interested in gay make-out scenes would pay to be there if that ever happened.




(Those who are normally interested in gay make-out scenes probably wouldn't be any more.  Wink)

I was waiting until my newest site was closer to being finished but now that we've finally broken through this barrier, I figured now is a good time to donate another BTC on behalf of Searching For Satoshi.

Rassah, I've sent one bitcoin for this particular charity and am ready to send more when the wallet is ready for the next.

Bruno, please add Searching For Satoshi to my list of for-profit endeavors willing to donate at least one BTC per charity.

I've added you to the both list, edd. Please let me know which account I should credited that 1 BTC to. Thanks, bud.

~Bruno~


I'm not sure what your request means, Bruno. I believe I've previously sent one BTC for each of my sites to the original wallet (1BTC1oo1J3MEt5SFj74ZBcF2Mk97Aah4ac) and just sent one to represent SearchingForSatoshi.com. Once we're ready to begin collecting for the next charity, I'll be happy to send another BTC for each of my pledged sites.

My RSVP still stands. I will be there. I can't wait to meet you gentlemen.
Did atlas show up like he promised to?

No, he posted under his new alias saying he wasn't:

I made the mistake of not booking a hotel.

I wish I could go but it's difficult trying to justify a one day trip and back for my family and I. I am getting my license next week. Not the best timing. : \

Anyways, I hope all of you have a great time. I can't wait to hear (or see) what happens.
