I have a technical question about my bitcoin node for my fellow verifiers.

My bitcoin node runs on a linux box. I kept it switched off while I was away. When I got back, I found the main drive had some problem, so I replaced it and reinstalled the system and some of the software, including bitcoind. So far so good. After this, I proceeded to restore the latest daily backup of the .bitcoin directory, which among other things contains the local copy of the blockchain. I then left the node running to verify and sync.

The surprise came when the catching up was done, and I launched the new daily backup. I use rsync, so only files that have changed actually get transferred. Well, apparently about half of the blocks need uploading to backup, which was never the case during my previous daily backup routine. Why have older block files changed?

I'm talking about blk0XXXX.dat files. The latest is blk01790.dat, so I expected the backup to begin well after blk01000.dat, but the current backup (still running) begins with

Code:
.bitcoin/blocks/blk00028.dat
.bitcoin/blocks/blk00031.dat
.bitcoin/blocks/blk00033.dat
.bitcoin/blocks/blk00036.dat
.bitcoin/blocks/blk00037.dat
.bitcoin/blocks/blk00038.dat

What could have happened?

I run a node but I’m not that tech gifted if I’m perfectly honest. You might be better off posting this here -

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=4.0

achow101, the mod on that sub is close to genius level. He’s saved my ass (thinking I’ve lost a lot of coins a few times).

He replies to most threads & that’s also where the gifted techies hang out.

I have a dog with no legs.  I call him Cigarette because every evening when I get home from work I take him for a drag.

My sister had a dog with 3 legs, she named it Fraction. Great dog, couldn't jump as well as others but can't say the handicap really affected him much. Fur reals.

Reminds me of the farmer who kept a 3 legged pig for a pet.
When asked by his neighbor how it lost a leg,
the farmer replied, “well, him being well trained and all, I don’t want to eat him all at once.....

In this analysis, the main thing is that an impulse may arise that raises the price to $ 15.3k, but if they do not defend the positions, it can remain at $ 7.4k.



https://cointelegraph.com/news/price-analysis-11-09-btc-eth-xrp-bch-ltc-bnb-eos-bsv-xmr-ada

On the other hand when viewing the graph in tensorcharts, at 1 day, it is noted that there is not much volume, if the price falls with low volume means that there is no demand, there is almost no interest in shopping there, the offer may appear in levels of higher prices, I am much more inclined to go up and I think I am going against many analysts ..




The arrows indicate the number of transactions or the number of orders there are, at higher levels there is more negotiation interest.

Wait so Bitcoin = bad because Segwit is "indeed an alteration of the Bitcoin protocol"

BTC is suboptimal not merely because SegWit is an alteration, but because the SegWit Omnibus Changeset is a net negative alteration.

Quote
but bcash Bsv = good because their shitty changes are "legitimate claim to a protocol change"

One of the things that makes BSV good is that it is being incrementally returned to the original Bitcoin protocol.

Do try to keep up.

Thus coming back to my comment about original design of planes not having jet engines and cars not having air bags etc... Can you provide any other technology which was not improved and is stuck at its original design? BSv's whole premise relies on cult thinking rather than logic. The design of first car, computer, TV etc etc etc have little to do with their current revisions and no one cares about ENIAC and steam powered cars.

U in principle say that original Bitcoin (pre alterations incl Segwit) didn't work, had no enjines, no proper script  whatsoever

But that is the cult, that core / BS created , i.o. to sell u 2nd layer and script 'engines' cause it s still on the cult ticker btc.

Take a step back, not Back, but back to the roots (yeah, it could get a cult)

Jackass

Guess this is a full agree in ur lang.

Cheers
I didn't say it didn't work for it's time, but all things change, and improve for the better, deal with it. Trying to stick to original design because it's somehow divine and refuse changes citing code v0.1 as some kind of bible is cult thinking, not engineering. Like i said no one cares about specs for ENIAC just as no one cares about BSv or bcash.

Hong Kong makes $37 billion bid for the London Stock Exchange

Quote
London (CNN Business)Hong Kong has just made a surprise £30 billion ($37 billion) takeover bid for the London Stock Exchange.

Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKXCF) (HKEX) said Wednesday it had made a proposal to the LSE (LNSTY) to combine the two companies in a cash and share deal worth £29.6 billion, or £31.6 billion ($39 billion) including debt.

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/09/11/investing/hong-kong-london-stock-exchange/index.html

 Roll Eyes

There is no way China should be allowed to buy the LSE.  Surely this deal will be blocked.

I was looking for a good photo to show how Rebel might be getting wifi in a poor village. I googled shithole European town and found a medium article where a guy was talking about going back home to visit where he grew up and facing the fact that he was from a shithole. Didnt read the article but the pics he put in it were gold for my purposes. Kudos for catching the exact place!  

ROTFL...


Any mis- is in your misattribution of ulterior motive to my actions, which causes you to invent things in my writings that are not there.

Huh?  Funny I still see you making misinformation's, and spinning matters.  I did not realize that I was causing it.  


Apparently you are all powerful!

Do you posses these!?!



Lol, I remember the runes of Dota2 online game here.


Havn't tried that game.

I have seen some comments of yachts.

When you have a boat there are only two happy days:

- The day you buy it and the day you sell it. Wink

OR the day you leave it on the bottom of the ocean like I did. Wink

Sunk 5 times!
Finally gave up, amusingly the type of boat is nick named "Leaky lucille".

The design of first car, computer, TV etc etc etc have little to do with their current revisions and no one cares about ENIAC and steam powered cars.

Which, of course, brings me right back to the observation that the SegWit Omnibus Changeset is a net negative alteration. Degradation is not improvement.

Who cares about your qualitative assessment of segwit (and your attempt to change its name)?  Your opinion on such point does not matter.  Bitcoin doesn't  care about your opinion, nor the opinion of anyone else.. including me, including purported bitcoin maximalists, etc.

What matters is that segregated witness was passed by overwhelming consensus in August 2017 and locked in and implemented all in that same month.  Ever since then, segwit has been built upon more and more and more.  Segwit systems have been embedded into the current workings of bitcoin as we know it.

Segwit is also an optional component, as you know.  You can participate in such new segwit systems that are offered within bitcoin or you can stay with systems that do not utilize segwit.  Many people are not going to know the difference between what part of the system they are using, and it is not going to matter to them, except that they will likely realize that fees and transaction times are lower through such useage of segwit.. which seems like a net positive, to me.  

Of course, you know that you can refuse to use bitcoin because of bitcoin's evolution in terms of better systems, such as segwit, and there are those dumbass bitcoin wannabe shitcoins that don't use segwit (yet), too, as you know.  They are not really doing too well, either, in terms of adoption, are they?  You dumbass  (I call you a dumbass in a kind of redundant way because you remain in support of such bitcoin wannabes, and even erroneously believe them to be bitcoin.. which fairly clearly shows that you to have fucked up conceptions regarding even what is bitcoin.. that is if even you believe that crap).  

I doubt your whining, the whining of BIG blockers or the whining of bitcoin naysayers is going to cause consensus on that segwit included in bitcoin topic to be undone.  Your lobbying does not seem to have much of any effect regarding perception about the benefits of segwit on bitcoin, but it does continue to cause you to appear as an ongoing lame-ass whiner...   a whiner about an issue that has about a snowball's chance in hell of changing in your stated preferred direction.

Also your ongoing whining on this segwit in bitcoin topic seems to be just another example to show that you like to focus on irrelevant issues and to attempt to describe such supposedly important issues in a way that exaggerates their actual affect on bitcoin - in other words, an example of your ongoing disingenuineness in regards to relevant and material facts in regards to bitcoin.

What's a jojo effect?

Last I recall was that jo-squared was trying to make some kind of assertion that king daddy bitcoin gave some kind of ratt's ass concern about the price movement of litecoin.....

Does jo-squared have another (hopefully better) theory?
