when a domain is renewal after expiration, it could take up to a week for the entire world to be able to access it, thanks to dns cache. If you can see the site, but bet addresses and counters don't show up, try, http://www.satoshidice.com/Bets.php to test if the mysql on backend still responds. I think, sometimes the site is so slow that the javascript that serially loads all these widgets break in the middle of the way resulting in the no show addresses widget because it's the last in the line.

Not sure if you are affiliated or employed in some way by SD

Long ago I received a modest tip from Erik for some statistical analysis I provided him with.  That's the extent of my affiliation with SD though (other than having spent about 40 BTC on shares which are now worth 28 BTC).  The tip from Erik just about cancels out my loss on the shares (it was back when BTC was cheap).

Trading is not done via IRC, trading is done by ... the irc bots, ...
Make up your mind, is it or isn't it done by IRC?

Yes!

Exactly!

Hi guys,

I've just submitted a bet that S.DICE will not survive until the next New Year ( http://betsofbitco.in/item?id=1535 ) , thought some of you might also be interested in betting on that.

EDIT: the bet is not available before it gets approved by the admins. I still think it is ethical to post the link right away.

This is a pretty bizarre bet... any reason for you to believe such a thing?

The problem with this is principally that it'd seem more likely for his chosen venue to not survive until the end of the year. After their recent outright scamming who exactly would bet there?

I was looking at the blockchain.info, bets were pouring in like nothing happened,

satoshidice.com is yet another front-end, although it's humungously fuck up, forgetting the renewal.

Government can take the domain down, the service will still live. It is DDOS resistance at no cost.

They should to keep creating front-ends over different channels, like IRC, phone apps, a few new http sites, buy out the clones if any gets traction, make their own wallet apps, basically advertise those 1dice addresses all over, not just satoshidice.com .

I guess the design is so that the website itself is not particularly relevant to the service. Much like the case of MPEx itself. This may emerge as the correct way to build bitcoin services yet.

Not sure if you are affiliated or employed in some way by SD

Long ago I received a modest tip from Erik for some statistical analysis I provided him with.  That's the extent of my affiliation with SD though (other than having spent about 40 BTC on shares which are now worth 28 BTC).  The tip from Erik just about cancels out my loss on the shares (it was back when BTC was cheap).

I think the biggest thing in this entire thread is that we (as a community, I mean) need to find a way to repay people taking the time and putting in the effort to do useful things such as what dooglus does (but more generally too) without it being sponsored by the company itself (which has the problem of creating an affiliation). Any ideas?

Tipping is pretty easy with bitcoins, they just have to publish an address somewhere.

Maybe we should start a thread suggesting people take the time to contemplate how much said person has helped them, and suggesting people give a tip. Sort of a tipping nomination, so it does not look like the person is tooting their own horn.

or miners may donate a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of their hash for community works, because tipping is one time thing.

Frankly, I don't think that there is a huge problem with affiliation, as long as we know it.  For instance, Dooglus revealing that he was in some way compensated for providing a service makes me think of him as an independent contractor.  He doesn't actually work directly for SatoshiDice, and his compensation/livelihood isn't tied directly to them, so given that he has been transparent, I have no reason to think that he is posting false information to make them look better than they are.

I mean, if we were really worried about his being influenced by the financial side of things, his approximately 10,000 shares would be far more of an issue. 

We can certainly tip him, and others who provide services (preferably through something like the Reddit tipbot), but there is also nothing wrong with people being compensated by the companies that they benefit.

I.... don't think thats a very big issue at all in this community. Most memebers have an address you can send btc to..and if they don't I'm sure they'd be happy to provide you with one if you asked. Obviously you're wanting something that's a paralell to the reddit tipbot ...But that serves a useful service on reddit because it can be sent to any memeber without them needing to know about bitcoin. It's a great tipping / marketing tool. bitcointalk is not filled with people who don't know what bitcoin is.

I do agree with the comment that affiliation isn't a big problem... Anyone should be able to say what they like in this forum, regardless of thier personal interests...If they are acting malevolently by stirriring up FUD or just disinformation then that might just catch up to them and tarnish their reputations. (Not saying this with you in mind at all dooglus fyi, just a commentary) let people decern information from what is written by others themselves.

(sorry dooglus to have infered a possible deal with you and SD, it wasn't my aim to try prying information like that, it was that I thought you'd be the most deserving of money from them...Considering you're infinitely more active on their  securities posting while those owning and empoyed by SD are nowhere to be seen.

I just wanted to bring this back on target though, because it seems to have been lead on a slight tangent.

So what's the deal with airline food satoshi dice? It's been a good week with no official comment from any staff and still feels like it's being run into the ground. It's just appauling to see so much mismanagment such a potential filled prospect.

Anyone knows the avg time for the service to send the result back ?

For the site, the avg time for past 2 weeks for everything to load up for me, is about 1 min.

I hope the service is still fast(discounting the confirmation time), even though the site has been so annoyingly slow.

SatoshiDice partners their business with a foul outspoken racist: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=186041.0

Consider which bitcoin businesses you support carefully, I am advocating a complete boycott of ALL businesses that use and or support MPEx.

mem, You're an idiot. You an ciuciu should get together and have a little racist cp circle jerk.(Seriously, it's the ones who make the accusations that are the most guilty in most cases)  

But, then - it may seem like Erik & company aren't really that smart, or great at business. Mircea is pretty good - but, hey...he picked a usagi deal too - can't be perfect can ya?

Actually - seems pretty clear that Erik doesn't really give a shit about this business he's cashed out of. But wtf...I cashed out of most of my shares too. I won't be likely to invest in any more vorhees ventures. Follow through is lacking, but acquiring cash from investors isn't.

Still - considerably better than most of the garbage stocks out there in bitcoin land. At least it makes money most of the time.

EDIt - just noticed the color of mem's ignore button is growing.

Mem, that article written by Mircea Popescu isn't what you think it is - you've completely missed the point.

This non-issue comes up every so often whenever a sensitive soul skims that article on Mircea's blog.

1. No
2. The bet return part, yes. It seems sometimes S.DICE's bet processing script is very slow (far beyond 1 confirmation times)
3. Yes.

It was not a matter of the website being slow, the domain name registeration expired and we still have not heard any response from Evoorhees. Could he at least pop into the thread and say "Hey, I noticed that, fixing it now"?

Seeing as he was able to comment in a different subject this morning I find that highly unlikely! 

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=186041.msg1936556#msg1936556

Next best option is that he made his money selling some shares, still receives his monthly dividend and other than that is not that much interested in SD anymore....
