That sounds good to me.  Thank you!
2  Economy / Economics / Withdraw from BTC-E, US, least fee on: December 04, 2013, 09:04:54 PM
Hello all,

Hoping this is in the right spot.  I am looking to withdraw money from BTC-E, and am in the US.  The two obvious options seem to be paypal or a wire transfer.  I do not have the minimum amount for a wire transfer, and paypal charges a eventual total fee of 11.2% which is ridiculous.  Has anyone had any other success with any other method of withdrawal?

Thanks!

Hello all,

I have been off the forums for awhile now. Is there a ASIC out there that is viable to purchase or down the line may be viable? I have been looking at the black arrow but 2014 is a long way off. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

Dr you think this is a worthwhile investment by the time these actually ship in February? Difficulty predicted at 2 billion.

Hello all,

Anyone use http://btcrobot.com/?cbid=bitcoinrobot?

Looks like a scam, or at least not as good as is advertised.

Mind explaining why you use the image from that site as avatar while at the same time try to seam unrelated to this scam asking questions to bump people into going there?

sorry been forever since I logged onto this forum.  Well I can honestly say I had that logo first.  They didn't design that logo, I found it all over googling.

So much irony here posting this on the internet for others to see. I am disgusted. This year is 2013, next year will be 1984.

Ya, I am totally disgusted by the NSA surveillance program. The scary thing is that the United States NSA PRIZM spying program goes way further than American soil.  By spying on Yahoo mail, Hotmail and Google searches and Dropbox they are essentially spying on the world, you know how many people from other countries use these online services.

Here is a WIRED magazine article that will scare anyone who reads it.

http://www.moneyaccumulator.com/1151/the-nsa-is-building-the-country%E2%80%99s-biggest-spy-center-spying-on-the-world/

I have already taken many steps detailed in this other article, I have changed from Dropbox  to Mega.co.nz.
I don't use Google search anymore... I use Startpage.com, it's google without the spying.  I use Torbrowser for all my surfing, now the only thing I have to do is get off damn YAHOO mail...I am looking for alternative right now.

Other article: http://www.moneyaccumulator.com/1062/avoid-u-s-gov-snooping-nsa-prizm-move-away-from-cloud-services-that-allow-nsa-backdoor/

Have a read.

You can do a lot of other stuff that makes your life a little easier but also protects you.  For example, you can keep using dropbox, but just use Boxcryptor Classic or a TrueCrypt container for the bulk of your files.  Then music and other stuff that you don't care if it gets leaks, you can still have that in the clear, so all your apps can still take advantage of dropbox's interconnectedness to everything.  You can use a non-logging VPN instead of Tor-- yeah you have to trust the VPN, but at least you prevent ISP spying and you get speeds much better than Tor allows for.  And you can sign up for a Tormail or Lavabit e-mail, which again-- you have to trust them, but it's probably easier than only communicating with friends who use PGP.

Remember, security and convenience are always a trade-off, so my personal advice is to only protect yourself against egregious violations and let them have the small stuff.  It's just too much of a pain to not have Google on your phone or to only use encrypted communication or to constantly change services or use fake info all the time.  I mean, if you want to, more power to you, but understand the trade-off.  I like the little conveniences that are afforded by sacrificing some privacy, but I understand what I'm giving up.  I expect all my communications to be monitored, and I am able to protect myself if I want, but most of the time it's not worth the hassle.

But I guess, if you want to fight the good fight more than I do, that's perfectly fine and I bid you godspeed.

+1 Great post.

Those are password reset/change requests. Are you sure your mail account is safe?

Actually, according to the Russian emails, it looks like someone bought Battlefield Premium for me. Nice!

That's what I meant, yeah.

Gotcha.  Im fairly certain it is.  I have mobile authentication set up, and obviously do not use that password.  Lol.  I noticed that as well.  I haven't noticed any other fishy messages/problems with any other accounts I have, and most are tied to that email.

Tell you what. You should contact Origin and get them to reinstate the account to you.

You'll get a free Battlefield 3 in the process

Anyway, just trying to let people know if their information happens to be out there, specifically on that site.  As well as bash EA games, I dislike them despite this incident!

Also.... I hate to tell you this... but you should kinda flatten and reinstall your Mac what with this happening

I'm having a strange problem where any random program I have open will suddenly jump to 100% + CPU in activity monitor making the CPU temps jump from ~55C to 80 or 90C.

Are you being serious?  Or just an asshole?

I'm pretty serious. Sounds to me like you may have a malware infection. The 100% thing is not normal and I have ever only seen it with crappily programmed malware.

Well sorry for my anger then.  Seemed fairly sarcastic.  Well as far as that problem goes I found reseting the Quick Look client's generator cache with qlmanage -r seems to at least stop it when it does occur.  

I also did these steps:

Temporarily delete Movie.qlgenerator, Audio.qlgenerator, or other qlgenerator bundles in /System/Library/QuickLook, and run qlmanage -r.
Temporarily remove applications shown by qlmanage -p | grep /Applications/.
Disable quicklookd with launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.quicklook.*. The plists are loaded again after you log out and back in.

I found the problem wasn't with the quick look client alone though, the Bitcoin client even acted the same way.  I will take your advice thanks!

Well the thing is I began to receive emails from Origin in Russian in January.  Before I was a member of this form.  That does not fit the time frame...... I will upload a picture.
18  Other / Off-topic / Re: Gotta love Sh**ty ass EA GAMES! on: July 19, 2013, 08:46:55 PM

It is a password I no longer use and is therefore irrelevant.  

That password I linked to is the very one they used to get into your Origin account, so how is it irrelevant?

The most likely scenario is this: you posted your password on a site that is filled to the brim with scammers and fraudsters, namely bitcointalk. One lucky guy saw that and threw it into his automated "Try this username/password-combo with every known interesting system" script, got a positive from Origin then threw it into his list of "dudes I have the Origin login data for". This fits with the timeframe also. You posted your password, two weeks later it's on the Russian site.


At the time of signing up for Origin, in 2009, I had been using different passwords for each account I made.  So it was unique.  Again I am one of hundreds who had their Origin accounts, and solely those accounts stolen.

Be honest though, a games company website isn't particularly important, they're going to have pretty crappy security no matter how you look at it but this is precisely why when you sign up with these companies you use a password that isn't connected to your important stuff and you've reminded me that I should probably change my cryptocurrency stuff just in case because I'm sure there are some linked up passwords from there floating around the internet.

I agree EA is a shitty company and their standards are piss poor, but they can't be blamed because you only used one password.

What do you mean used only one password?  AidadC123 May be a shitty password, but it is one that WASNT connected with anything important.  Most modern systems have 2 layers of security at least when they recognize a unrecognized browser.  If feel like EA hasn't implemented one out of laziness and the need to save money.

Just checked my mail adresses. I am a complete and total unknown.

Are you sure you didn't get your stuff stolen elsewhere? Especially with that horribly horribly unsafe password you were using?

They only account that was effected was EA.
