Same issue as what I was having on one computer, I restarted the daemon a few times and finally get it working.  For another computer, one start and the GG coins was being mined smoothly all the way.  Kinda of weird for the first computer.  Can't figure out the problems or the solutions.

On shitty routers, UPnP can somehow upset them in a manner that renders the port closed (investigation underway, should eventually figure it out since I happen to have some shitty routers and a person with unhelathy amounts of free time available).
Restarting the daemon tends to help that one. If else fails, restart the router.

That should not affect outgoing connections though.

Wisdomtool, were both computers using the same internet connection ?

It might be that one of the ISPs were having some mysterious network issues, the magnitude of effect of which is at the core of whether Geist would survive.

Could you keep Geist running on the "problem" pc and just keep an eye if NTP quirks or "mass orphanages" are common on it ?

P.S.:
My Russian friends have reported that domain name has been registered. Geist site is soon, after all.

Tell me if you get orphan streaks like discussed several pages ago or any other weird stuff.

Is there real interest in a blockexplorer-like site for Geist Geld?  Help me decide if I should set it up!     Grin

Yes: 16p7hr3nKhFrKz3qn2cg3Q3buEgr5yPnU9
No: 1H51nfR4V83dhy9niUZjjXigVVYeX14qZ9

0:0, so there doesn't seem to be neither real need nor interest in the blockexplorer for GG.   Grin

I think there is interest.
The problem is people don't like to pay for voting.
If you set up geist blockexplorer though, I would be glad to donate once it's up.
And maybe Lolcust can offer a bounty?

I made a vector version of the original Geist Geld logo in adobe illustrator.
So next release perhaps you can put some high res logos in there?

First bounty: Update Notifier

One of the things Geist Geld desperately needs to avert various unfavorable experiences down the line is a means to somewhat meticulously and insistently (within reason) notify the user if the majority of peers he is connected to have a version different from his own.

This will help to draw the user's attention to the fact that his version is lagging behind the general Geist Geld frontier and he'd better catch up until something bad happened.

The bounty on this one is 69 777  Geists, and of course proper credit in the  Contributors section of the website (which gonna go up real soon)

Meanwhile, I would ask the kind community to provide feedback as to possible pitfalls and implementation suggestions.

Thank you very much in advance

*cough* 150 thousand? *cough*

Considering that we're around block 40000 (=280k mined), doesn't that seem like a bit much? The person who does it suddenly has ~1/3rd of the entire mining supply?

We need that thing fast, like, really soon. Because quite frankly when the exchange opens, we might have quite an influx of users who will later be quite careless to check for updates.

Need I remind that we still seem to have a few guys without ntp=1 (I wonder if we still have somebody bravely trawling Chain 1 Sad )

And I have reasons to believe that  kinks in the exchange will be sorted out pretty damn soon, and coding and testing that thing will likely take quite some time (so, more like ~ 1/4, the brave programmer will have)

EDIT: Decided to slightly tone it down to 69 777 so that nobody gets too nervous and the number is still kinda pretty  Wink...Hope that a kind skilled soul with a keen interest in Geist Geld (and Geists) will still show up soon enough ...

Wouldn't it be easier/more reliable to build a check into the client against a file on the website? Then you'd know as soon as you start the client if its out of date or not.
