The RTP is still more than 100% so someone is making bucks out of this. ;-)

BTW I did a slight fine tuning of the distortion algorithm.

And a new one:

BTW srry for uploading some photos rotated. Those are taken with my phone's camera and the stupid camera doesn't store them rotated properly, instead it just stores some metadata with the photo that set the orientation for gallery apps to view the photo properly but apophenia can't read these metadata so the picture end up being rotated improperly. And I can't notice that until quite a few hours later when it gets clear. On the other hand though it doesn't really matter that much... ;-)

I only made money from a few pics. Generally I'm loosing money but only a little so I don't currently mind it. The whole project has stagnated a bit lately because I'm busy with other things but this will change next week probably when I'll be able to work on Apophenia again. Same goes for Biticker, didn't have time to improve anything lately.

Same here.  Also, the contact button doesn't work, and when I tried a different browser, Avast came up saying there was a trojan on the page.  What gives?

Give me a minute to check everything and I'll be posting again.

EDIT:

Argh my bad! I was sure I had updated my bitcoin client but I was still running 0.8.1 which is probably why it stopped connecting to other nodes today. I'm updating and restarting it. It will process everything in the order it was placed so nobody will be affected.

I'm really sorry for the delay people.

Also, the contact button doesn't work, and when I tried a different browser, Avast came up saying there was a trojan on the page.

Virustotal says site is clean: https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/40eccf336c323c4bf615e34cc97cf15dcaca553d2363003e9f1f3fdd442344c0/analysis/1372677169/

Now the contact button though seems to work on all my browsers. Can you tell me what OS and browsers you tried? I wild guess is that some spyware/toolbar/other-plugin messed up the javascript on apophenia which causes both the contact button to not work AND Avast to complain about the scripts on the page. Could it be that?

EDIT: There may have been a little problem with the payout, I'm checking this now. No need to worry everyone will get what he/she should.

EDIT2: All set. I had to send a second pot to the actual winner. While my bitcoind was offline some addresses expired and when I turned it back on it checked the still valid addresses so it awarded the pot to someone who had answered recently. But someone had answered correctly before that and his address had expired. In any case everybody should be getting what he is owed now, if you think for any reason that you got a wrong amount just tell me.  Wink

Probably. I see two people betting on Clerks, 6 minutes apart. In about 10 minutes those two bets will be visible in the last txs page. (They only appear there after two confirmations)

Now this is bad luck for you. You two are basically confirmed by the same block, but the other buy was 6 minutes faster so his answer is checked first. :-/

EDIT: Actually you are already visible in the txs page. I was looking at an old tab which I hadn't refreshed a long time. Also only the hintless picture is open now. I'll add two more in a while. :-)

That's not true, you'd still win. The site has no way to know if you are aware of the block confirming your correct answer (i.e. if you have synced client). Also, after I release the bet payment to the bitcoin network, there is no way to cancel it.

EDIT: And AFAIK, you can send coins even if you haven't fully synced the blockchain. At least with the QT client.

Did a correction to one of the pictures. Again I forgot to include the correct answer. I mixed up immigrants with refugees...

Still needs to have enough BTC in the wallet to be able to spend it! Smiley I got an unexpected windfall just in time.


BTW, your game is hard! O.O
