We've made some changes to Ixcoin addressing issues raised since its release. This is a compulsory update otherwise your Ixcoin client will not communicate with other updated nodes after Sep 1rst 2011. The blockchain remains intact.

I wonder what Thomas would do if the same miners that pumped up his difficulty beyond reach showed up around block 20055 and ignored what he imagines to be a "compulsory" update, forcing the blockchain down a different path.  Could make for a fun split...

Wow. That may be the first good reason I've seen to consider a mining contract!

well even if it is copy paste, glad you are updating the client. Competition is a good thing even if I still have a lot of reservations over ixcoin.


Quote
Did you basically copy the solidcoin code to fix yours ? Wow :O.

so did i0coin, and i wish namecoin would do the same unless they can do the merged mining sooner, and I think BTC should do the same with the difficulty, it is a good idea. It is all open source, you are supposed to steal good ideas from open source. Yeah i wish there was more unique development but I'm not going to chastise him for stealing the difficulty algo, it was wise to do.

Quote
Could anyone tell me why is there a need to limit decreases in difficulty? Why not just let it adjust freely?

because if it gets too low, we get problems with with the i0coin release.

Apologies for the multiple updates
.

I would rather have 100 updates than a broken client. though it would be nice if somehow the clients can tell they are out of date and update themselves. people dont want to have to monitor the clients and check the forums all the time. people want to be able to go on vacation and come home and find things are still working.

yeah I still have reservations, and yeah i still think you are old miner  Cheesy but competition is a good thing, updates are a good thing and as such i wont use this thread to attack you or ixcoin, there are more than plenty of places for me to do that. The only thing I will say is people should investigate why there is so much animosity and make up their own minds.

No, please leave the ill-thought-out parameter changes to the alternate block chains.  Most of us like BTC just the way it is, for good reason.

well this isnt the place for that debate, but tell namecoin how fun it is. their next diff change is january next freaken year, they are mining a 100k+ diff with an hash rate that calls for an under 10k diff. .

yeah yall love to claim there is a crap load of problems with this, but yall tend to put up very little in the form of a substantive debate. you are just myoptic. Wait until theri is a real challenge to btc(if their isnt already one) and when the BTC miners flee, you will wish diff changes kept up as transactions slow to a crawl. heck it already took me 1.5 hours last night to get my btc to the exchange, when my sc was there in .5hours.now what happens if half the miners left btc for some reason? electricity, hard core banning in theri countries, natural disasters, or just a good competitive coin? yeah I dont want to wait 3 days for my coins to be useful.

Dude I get all that, I can read. Everything will turn over on the block 20055. MY PROBLEM IS I HAVE NOT SEEN A BLOCK CHAIN IN 2 DAYS.
Nasakioto says the change will happen in 29 blocks.. WELL IT HAS BEEN 2 DAYS AND MY NEW CLIENT SAYS THERE ARE STILL 29 BLOCKS.

My question is will we have to wait 2 months for the change over, OR IS MY CLIENT BROKEN. And thus far I cant get anyone to answer what the average block time is right now. Just a ball park guestimate that is all I am asking for.

yeah i'm beggining to think it is broken, and a lot of people wont be on the new block chain.

I just installed the thing on a computer that never had ixcoin on it.. and guess what ... 20026


well at least ixcoin has a month to figure it out.

i'm going to try the old client and then I'm going to give up.


edit OLD CLIENT went up to 20027.. new client says F-U.. i'm guessing now I run the old client until block 20055? probably should make that clear as this was a head ache from hell

you are just myoptic.

You tell zebedee that he is your eyes or lenses. That will show him.

You really should read what you write before posting it. It's hard to take you seriously with your dodgy writing.

New Peering Marker

On Sept 1rst 2011 at 00:12:51 UTC (in under a week), the new client will switch over to a new Ixcoin-specific pchMessageStart peering marker from the original Bitcoin marker. This change was recommended by a few although we haven't had reports of any issues with this yet. Better safe than sorry. The updated Ixcoin nodes will not be able to communicate with non-updated Ixcoin clients after that date.
