I am around,  i have been distracted with some non TEKcoin issues lately but i have talked with noise23 who is working on the code.  Hopefully it should be done soon and then we then get TEKcoin on some new exchanges.

Thanks Thunder. And yes, another exchange would be great that isn't cryptsy/poloniex (due to the stupid bitlicense thing).

I like bittrex, bter and shapeshift.io

Ive done the "get out of the car, run around it 2 or 3 times, restart the car" routine.
I was hoping for some help from someone with some real experience. Not the peanut gallery.

Ah, but have you tried:

1) running around the car 4 times? If that doesn't work, keep on adding to the number of times of running around the car and repeating the routine. I guarantee that after 70, or so, years of doing that you won't have a problem; and 2) buy a PC.

If you want real help, try to manage your attitude problem. Based on the sparse information that you gave, plus the fact that your profile at this time states that you are a Newbie, the advice that Grigbo volunteered is a good, basic, solid piece of advice to give in the first instance.

I was appalled at you insulting a Good Samaritan who bothered to stop by to help you. That was ignorant and uncalled for. Another thing: if you put peanuts in, don't expect much out.

So.. did you solve the problem? the wallet just synced by its self?
Sometimes it looks like its stuck.. but still syncing and restarting the wallet helped me in exact same situation..

I ran into this just the other day. This is gonna sound peanut galleryish, but I just left it overnight after the two restarts, and by morning it had cleared up. This is not Mac, though, so I don't know how useful it is to you.

Well that is just great.  Because I am a "newbie" and I have to put up with the "advice" from Grigio, and now lectures on etiquette from someone who is even less helpful, and less knowledgeable, maybe I am just now worthy of intelligent help, and I should just live with things the way they are. Or maybe, the old adage, "if you don't have anything intelligent to ad, keep your dumb mouth shut" applies here.  If the best you have is "buy a PC" maybe you should go to work for Geek Squad. That is about what I would expect from the likes of them.

Your comments are also ignorant and uncalled for, so apparently, I am in good company. Since you seem compelled to be the self proclaimed moderator, perhaps you would be so kind as to paraphrase what I should have said. We are listening! You were appalled? So sorry! I should be purged! Well maybe I am appalled by your being appalled because you read too much into what I said. How dare you be so insulting? Maybe YOU should be purged!

Biotech, I would like to offer sincere thanks for your advice. Maybe low tech, but certainly worth a try. Some times simple is good.

I would be certainly grateful for any other advice "beyond buy a PC".  I am considering deleting the block chain and reloading, I have just been hesitant to do so, as I have a sizable number of coin in my wallet ready to stake, and didn't want to risk messing that up.

Bitcointalk is Mos Eisely. It's best to have a VERY thick skin here Cheesy Grigbo is actually a decent guy, and it was a good first response.

As to redownloading the blockchain, with a few precautions, it won't affect your staking other than the time it takes to do it. (which will lead to slightly larger staking if the coins are already mature, so, no biggie). This has been posted elsewhere in the thread, but I don't feel like looking it up. I'll just go through the basics.

First off, use the bootstrap that's in the OP. There are some issues with downloading a fresh chain at about the time of the last fork which can sometime freeze the sync. Not guaranteed to do so, but it's easier with the bootstrap.

Before doing ANYTHING to the block chain files, make at least one backup of wallet.dat. I'm paranoid, and usually back one up to the cloud, one to the same drive, and one to a flash drive. Multiple redundancy is a lifesaver.

After doing that, go to your data directory (I'm not certain what that is on a Mac), and delete everything.

Copy the bootstrap.dat file in.

Fire up your client or daemon, and go watch a game or something. You have several hours, possibly as long as a couple of days before it fully syncs.

Optional: If you want to have full tx data on the whole freakin' chain, add txindex=1 to your tekcoin.conf file. Normally, it only indexes YOUR transactions, but with that flag you're essentially a block explorer unto yourself. The upside is obvious, the downside is it takes WAY longer to sync.

Also, since you're new here and people tag me a lot, a bit of a disclaimer. I'm not part of the Tekcoin project, though I have assisted them with testing on several occasions, and Thundertoe is my friend. Sometimes I have inside info, but don't depend on it Cheesy

EDIT: Buy a PC Cheesy Macs are too expensive, and don't run Linux well. (I kid, I run linux and pretty much despise windows and mac both for anything to do with security.)

Hat in hand, apologies to you Grigbo, you did not deserve to brunt my frustrations, I do recognize you were trying to be helpful and had no clue what I had already tried.

Thanks for the wisdom Biomech. This is making wish I was still running a Ubuntu PC, The Mac hasn't been too bad though, certainly better then the Wind Blows alternative.

And Since this is 'Mos Eisley,' Blow it out your ass Dave.

Grigio, when you create your new account, They ask you for a user name, and your email.  Then, when logging in, they want your email and password, not your username.  This tripped me up at first as my computer auto-filled my user name, not my email. Took me minute to figure it out, as the error message when trying with the username was not obvious.  This may be your issue too.

I logged into the new exchange. I doesn't appear they do much trading of anything. a couple of the more common coins like Litecoin and Dogecoin have a little volume, but most everything else is all zeros.

The user interface is a bit un-elegant. I realize that is not too important, but rather how they conduct business.   I am Bitcoin Poor and heavy in Tekcoin at the moment, so I cannot but in buy orders. After my wallet is done syncing, I could put some sell orders in, a few thousand each at a higher then market price, so at least something shows up.

FYI, I did have to delete and begin the blockchain reload to fix my stuck sync. Its in process now, and looks like it is going to take some time to finish.
