RUM AND CARROTS: A PIRATE LIFE FOR ME

Hi,

our new difficulty algorithm is now  available for testing under our
dev-0.1.3 branch.

testnet supports this update since block 5182, a windows build for the
development branch was also published at our sourceforge mirror:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/terracoin/files/SatoshiClone/dev-0.1.3-119-win32.zip/download

changelog summary (again, just for testnet right now):
 [testnet] diff,adjustment: EMA retargetting.

- Exponential Moving Average diff computation, over the last 2160
   blocks duration (roughly 3 days worth of blocks).
 - active on testnet since block 5182, not enabled on livenet yet.
 - testnet will eventually allow diff=1 mining, when last block was
   found more than 10 mins ago ; livenet will divide diff by two under
   same circumstances.
 - will probably be activated on livenet in a short future according to
   tests.


see commit https://github.com/terracoin/terracoin/commit/01c20aaaaba for
further informations.

Note that testnet is the only network concerned right now, you have to
start your client with the "-testnet" parameter if you want to
participate in tests.

current dataset gathered during our tests looks quite promising,
although the extremely low difficulty do not represent the livenet
accurately.

In order to get make the blockchain usable again, we may publish this
update with a short-term mandatory block update ; we'll announce the
update here when satisfied with testnet gathered datasets and ready to
deploy.


If you are not running windows but unix/linux, proceed as follows:

mkdir -p ~/currencies
cd ~/currencies
git clone git://github.com/terracoin/terracoin.git
cd terracoin
git checkout dev-0.1.3

then build as usual.
cd terracoin/src && nice make -f makefile.unix -j 4 # for the daemon
cd terracoin && qmake && nice make -j 4  # for qt-client


thanks again for your patience.

excellent dude

sorry for being rash before.  you guys are doing good work I can sense that.  and I apologize for complaining I know its stressful.  and rabbit, I would mine if I could my laptop is under as much stress as it can be.  so I'll do what I can on the sidelines.

trollcoin.org will have to be a troll fest of sorts.  I'm still glad I bought the domain name.  impulse buy...

thanks for all that you do sorry for being a pest.  as time goes on I am realizing you sort of know what you're doing... so I'll stay out of your headspace for now

bump +1

yeah baby yeah

I don't get why --help says version 0.1.2. That's annoying.
