Why do you think anyone on this thread cares about your personal conversation?

If Peckerete engaged in a meaningful manner it would have been a great conversation with implications for all. Hard numbers and statistics vs a different school of thought. Two people spend spend $1,000 on a rig, $300 in electricity, to earn $500 worth of BTC. The first person looks at the charts for the last four years and knows the costs, risks of that BTC losing 90% in a day if the system collapses, but sees a slim chance BTC will ever trade over $500 again and goes for the ride. Then you have have Peckerete stating you have to "believe in the system to get rich!" If I can prevent one person from falling for that hyperbole it is a good day.

Clouds have faded away and the 89949%(00:00:24 duration) block was confirmed, lets hope another storm doesn't roll through.  Smiley

I've always wondered how that works for blocks that take around a minute or less after the previously found block.

Okay so pretty new to the mining thing. I have an S3+ and an S3. Looking at the installed packages, my S3+ is running cgminer 3.12.0-1 and my S3 is running 4.6.1-1. I there is a downloadable for an upgrade of cgminer and was wondering if there was any upside to doing it? Any advice would be appreciated. Also some idea of how to install if needed would be good. Have tried the Find Package option on the Software page but it does little. The update lists returns an error too.

Any advice of guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Mick

You can update to the October-firmware, since the November-firmware is having some issues with low hashing speeds or drops Smiley

Hi. I have been in stasis for over a year, and just now am returning to Slush and mining. So I found that my 0.003 BTC was never transferred, so lowered my threshold and it was transferred. But I checked my wallet and it didn't appear. So after chatting with another user for advice, I downloaded MultiBit which is an updated wallet program. Anyway, I it won't open my old wallet, so I went back to the old wallet and it says it's not synced. It says it's trying to sync, but won't connect to the Bitcoin servers (says "0 active connections to Bitcoin network", perpetually). Am I just screwed, and need to start all over with a new wallet using MultiBit, or is there a way to recover my old wallet using another program? It wont update, remember, and it's stuck, and there is a pending transaction from Slush for 0.003 BTC. Do I just shrug and lose that? Here is the block to prove the transaction, which I am unable to receive: http://www.blockchain.info/address/1JxJLf5kV9zxCAuCFqbeiY9YgQyNQ3icCd

Can any of you recommend a solution? I'd appreciate it. Thank you so much!

If you've been offline with your wallet for over a year it will probably take 24+ hours to resync depending on your bandwidth. What version of bitcoin-qt are you running?

Thank you for your answer. bitcoin-qt is version 0.5.1-beta. And I just checked it again after letting it run for a while, and happily it has 5 connections now. Smiley And last block was 1050 days ago! So it'll be a while. Oh my lord, did I see that right? 20 GB size to see the latest BTC transactions? I only have 0.003 BTC coming, which is about $0.01. For 20 GB size I wonder if it's even worth it. Maybe I should wait until I get a better computer? This is an old 2010 one. What do you think?
UPDATE: Ok, just found the latest bitcoin-qt version, downloaded, running fine. It does notify me that it's out of sync, and connected faster to the servers, but surely will take a long time. Thanks for help. I feel stupid for not figuring it out myself, but meh, it's been years since I mined.

No worries, if you have the drive space and bandwidth I say let it run and sync up. Then you'll have your $1 and go from there! Welcome back..keep on mining!

Thank you 727m! My old laptop is only able to mine about 3000 kbps and nowhere near other's Gbps. I started this as a pilot long ago, to show a potential investor that it was real, and hoped for a 20 computer network but never got funded. Oh well. Have to proceed from here. So here's what I propose. I have researched into other areas since then, and have power production inventions on the tech side, and neocortical self-programming upgrades on the biological side. The first would significantly reduce miners' electric cost for mining, and the second shows people how to hard-"wire" new information directly into long term brain storage. I have autism, suffered a brain injury, and combined my investigations and rewiring (neurological) with understanding others' "savant" skills, to create a new method of remembering and learning. Increased memory and creativity result.

There are additional books and projects on which I'm working as I have time, but I am horribly cash-shy. No funds to invest in mining equipment, so I would like to find some of you with capital, and discuss options to help improve your lives or those of your choosing, so that I can earn BTC to launch some of the international projects (tech and education) which I have in mind, so that I can finally get out of poverty and improve the planetary standard of living.

Anyway, if you are open to discuss further, and/or can gather the veterans here who may remember me starting to at least have familiarity, then I would much appreciate it.

(And, the bitcoin program is caught up up to 3 years and 4 weeks ago, which means it's regrowing everything from the beginning. Hope my transactions appear.)

Have a great Monday!

There is a bootstrap that you can download through BitTorrent which should catch you up faster.

Or just use Electrum and you don't have to download anything.  Wink
