Does the new receiver.h have this fix for spaces in paths?

Yup, the receiver.h which Twobits made has the change:

Quote
232c234
<       string directoryPath = (filesystem::path(fileName)).parent_path().string();
---
>       string directoryPath = getReplaced((filesystem::path(fileName)).parent_path().string());

The current client can not handle spaces in the path, the next version should and hopefully it will be ready in a few weeks. You could try manually making a folder called 'receiver' in your .devcoin folder and copying all the receiver files into that. If that doesn't work, you could try putting the receiver files into the same folder which contains the devcoin executable.

Maybe the first post can be updated to point to the builds at https://www.box.com/s/1mqfk22gyqq97ytdmifi  ?  I think they do help with the bootstrapping issues many see.

I have built devcoind with the new reciever.h

Moved ~/.devcoin/receiver to ~/.devcoin/receiver.gone

Now to see if it does in fact bootstrap itself up without needing me to manually provide it with the receivers files or directory...

(Will edit with results soon, currently it is just opening its wallet / scanning blockchain...)

...Okay, it created a new receiver directory and populated it! Cool.

I have been struggling with installing Devcoin on windows and just wanted to say that Twobits' installer is just great. Just how it should be Smiley

thinking about it, what about a futures market for dvc? the system is basically predestined for it because somebody knows for sure he/she will get paid in a months time but maybe needs money today. buyers of a long futures contract wouldn't even have to trust the other party because they can look it up when and how much they will receive. also i guess it would bring certainty/stability to the price

There is a new listing on cryptostocks - ASCMDVCPT

https://cryptostocks.com/securities/39

This has been setup by user twobits, so I think he is entitled to the business bounty if he sells $1 worth of stock? unthinkingbit?

I have created a thread at his request to help answer some questions relating to the investment so he can carry on doing the good programming that he has been doing of late Smiley so please post any questions here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=196217.0

Please show your support fellow devcoin users and this is a great opportunity as I see to invest in ASICMiner shares and help boost devcoin value with the buying of devcoins from dividends paid out by the ASICMiner shares

How many shares would we need in order to propose a motion that ASICMiner merge DeVCoins into their mining?

Shareholders should already anyway be complaining that ASICMiner is not merging an optimum number of chains into its mining, it is failing in its duty to shareholders of producing maximum earnings with its equipment!

Are we to support an operation that is so lax in its duties?

People have posted suggesting mm in their thread.

They are also starting to mine on bitminter now, so presumably getting nmc.


Personally I am glad that I can still mine some of the other coins and they are not yet.

Well if they are merged-mining DeVCoins I guess adding a passthrough for them to a DeVCoin exchange is fair enough then.

Whoever can solve my problem I will give you 1 000 000 DVC.

Can someone provide me with an idiots guide to using : https://github.com/Unthinkingbit/bitcointools  in Windows to import a private key into my Devcoin wallet? I am trying to do this with my Devda wallet's private key (in key.txt format) so I can actually receive my generation shares.

I have:
- Windows 7 64 bit
- Twobits' Devcoin wallet
- Python 2.7.6 installed (but I know nothing about python)

I have tried using the windows cmd console to run the command to import the prvate key, but I received an error that privkeyimport.py was a HTML doc, is this because I didn't download privkeyimport.py correctly from GitHub? Or could it be because I don't know anything about python?

I am in way over my head here and any help greatly appreciated (I am primarily a writer which is why I am writing on Devtome) - anyone who can take the time to write me an idiots guide that works to doing this - I will give you 1 000 000 DVC.

Thank you

EDIT: Please PM with any advice.

If that is a clone or fork of Gavin Andresen's bitcointools, I think it is not what one uses to import private keys, maybe also not to export them. I think it does some other thing or things entirely.

What we use(d) to export keys from bitcoin wallets and import them into devcoin wallets was pywallet.py which is just a simple single file python script, (On github somewhere, google knows where.)

So I've spent over 48 hours trying to get this to work and it turns out after all this the key is in the wrong format (too many digits by the looks of things) - and even after getting another key generated from Icoin from my wallet on Devda it is still in the wrong format.

Thank you to everyone for helping me out though - hopefully we will get there soon.

That was the first thing I used yesterday but it didn't work. I think the wallet's key is too long or in the incorrect format (it is over 1000 characters). Either that or I am just not sure what the issue is to be honest - but Bitcoin Tools gave me an error that the key was of an incorrect length.

I have finally started getting down to some nitty gritty economic stuff, pertaining to the Galactic Milieu, on Devtome:

Investing in an Economic Sector (Galactic Milieu)

From a very general and non-player perspective the article is about a currency decirculation device: a mechanism that ties up currency in the game thus decreasing the amount of currency in circulation.

Basically players "invest" in "Economic Sectors", the coins "invested" are frozen, and the rest of us hopefully experience higher exchange-rates because less coins hit the exchanges to get "dumped".

The mechanism does include the concept of "liquidation" (bailing back out the coins that are frozen into the "sector"), however the implementation is such that typically one should get a better price for a "portion" of a "sector" by selling it as an intact "portion" to another player than one would get by "liquidating" a "portion" into coins.

The intent, from a narrative and gameplay perspective, is to represent in an abstract game-mechanics way distinctions such as that between liquidating a business by selling off the raw materials and components of which it is consructed and selling a business as a going concern to new management/ownership. As a side-effect, players should tend to prefer leaving coins tied up in these "Economic Sectors" by selling "portions" over liquidating "portions".

(LIquidation involves un-freezing coins, releasing them back out of the "sector".)

P.S. That glaring red link, "Application Program Interface (API)" is an invitation to someone to create that missing page, not an indication I intend to someday get around to writing such a page myself. Wink
