Good interview, thanks for sharing.

Weird, I was just able to get into the Avalon store, and able to select my product (w/ or w/o power supply, and w/3 or 4 modules), but when I clicked "add to cart", I got bounced back to the spinning diamond, and can't get back to the product page now. It was like they were just open for a minute, but closed up again.

I'm still waiting on mine, it's been about a day.  Sad

I voted "same as now", meaning "between 10 and 17". I think the $10 level needs to be tested again to either lose it or form a double low.

I think the $10 level has proven to have some strong support. It's already made a double low, June 12th and July 5th (ignoring the whole hacking incident/flash crash which I don't think we can call a real price). I was really glad to see $10 tested again on the 5th and hold. Since the rally up from $10 has lost steam, I tend to agree that we'll probably see fluctuations in the "10 to17" range.

Thanks for the service bitoption! I'm having fun playing around with a few bitcoins. One question: (This is probably a dumb question, but I'm just learning about options and haven't figured out all the proper terminology.) On the "My Contracts" page what is "Est. Value"? Is that short for "Estimated Value of the Contract"? If so, how is this calculated? Is it based on current BTC/USD rate, or recent prices of similar contracts?

7  Bitcoin / Mining / Don't Mine on an iMac! on: June 07, 2011, 11:03:11 PM
I just got a new iMac at work (I'm a PC/linux guy, but my boss is a Mac guy). It has a ATI 6970, which is one of the best video cards for bitcoin mining today. So I figure I'll download Diablo miner and set it up to run with default settings. Apparently Open CL doesn't work very well on a Mac, so I was only mining at about 1/4 the rate that the 6970 would get in a PC, but still figured it would be worth it to run it over the weekend.

So I come back on Monday, and the computer is froze. I restart, and I'm getting visual artifacts on the screen, and it freezes, usually at the login screen, sometimes it logs in, only to have more video artifacts, and freezes shortly after. I'm pretty sure I fried the video card. I'm assuming that the iMac must have really bad cooling on the video card, and it overheated. Aren't there any safety features to shut down the computer if the hardware is getting dangerously hot?

I load in safe mode, and delete everything related to bitcoin or the diablo miner, and call the company's tech guy complaining my New iMac is acting up, acting like I have no idea why it would do that.

It seems that the exchange rate may go down this weekend.

(MtGox is down again . . . sigh. . .)

Do you consider the small surge today to still be consistent with your short-term forecast of a break downwards?  Or would you say the less likely scenario is taking place?  Or is it too early to say?

I still think it looks like it will break downwards. Look at the market depth, (, there is not much resistance down to about 2.8, and there is a lot more asks than bids. Looks like downward pressure to me.

Of course, I don't know what I'm talking about, and even if I did, a single big buyer (or seller) could cause a huge break either way.

Wow, when silver was at 49 I thought I had a lock. Not so sure at all now!
I am happy to pay you the 50btc each if it does not fall another 4.9$ :-)
I made a very good trade as I shortened massively between 45-49 $ and now it is 34.9$.
Silver is a great game, but you need the skill of cowboy Rodeo to play it.

Wow, just looked at silver price today. I just sold most of my silver (which I bought at $10-$15) at $45, I timed that well.

@bitcoinex   What does this mean?  Are you behind the DDoS attack on MtGox?

That exactly what he means:
12  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: 4 Card Motherboard on: April 25, 2011, 08:17:35 PM
5850s are not as efficient as 5870s. Less stream processors is my guess as to why. You can get four 5870s on one PSU, no problem.

5850s are significantly cheaper to buy though.
13  Bitcoin / Mining / Determining profitability on: April 25, 2011, 04:29:51 AM
I'm thinking of building a mining machine, and am trying to figure out if it will be profitable. I've used this: to calculate the profitability based on today's difficulty and compared with today's BTC/USD rate. But I would really like to see how the [BTC/USD rate]/[difficulty] has changed over time so I can try to guess at future profitability. I can find graphs for each (difficulty here: and BTC/USD charts from MtGox), but not the raw numbers. I need to find the raw numbers so I can compare them and make a value/difficulty graph.

Does anyone know where I can get the raw data for difficulty and exchange rate? (or better yet, a graph of the ratio that someone has already put together)

You can tell he doesn't really get it.

Great ticker! It's mesmerizing to watch the transactions slide by.
I would like to second the request for adjustable axes (i.e. be able to set the window of time and volume displayed).

Thanks for your work.
