If you'd like to snag some Testnet coins to test that your client is working without mining, you can get 10 coins over at my Testnet Faucet. I originally made this for us over at IRC, but seeing as everyone over there is a testnet millionaire... yeah.. you get the point.

Looks like the launch will be in 29 hours and a bit. The actual time will be announce in about 9 hours. Stay tuned.

Question for technical people. Would it be a bad idea if I told people to add "addnode=<myip>" to their litecoin.conf file so that they will immediately talk to my client for the genesis block? Would that overwhelm my client and take my client down? Or does bitcoin handle that well?

Please check your timezone. The last option in the poll is Thursday in GMT but Wednesday in the US. And that's 29 hours away.

Okay, I have a pool set up for litecoin. Testing on the testnet currently, works just fine. Doesn't work very well right now with 1 share per block. But, it works.

I've tested it inside and out of this networking using the latest miner for tenebrix and using the pushpool fork by artforz for tenebrix. Works like magic. Simple interface, just use a litecoin address to register, and it automatically creates workers like this: yourlitecoinaddress_1:1, yourlitecoinaddress_2:2

I'll start that maybe the day after or something when difficulty increases a little bit.

I'm also working on an exchange. Are there any other exchanges planned? I just wanted it to go from like lc<->btc, lc<->tbx ? None of the fancy charts like on btc-e but would be text based like bitparking.

Are there any other exchanges in the works, or should I push on with this hard? I'd love to be the first and only but if the big players like bitparking and btc-e have exchanges up there is no sense in me competing.

Why am I being dumb ? I am asking you to release it at a reasonable time so I don't have to stay awake all night then go to work the next day without having slept a minute etc.

Please consider this. Thanks !

By default Satoshi client accepts 125 incoming connections. The flag is "-maxconnections". Then there's kernel per-process limit "getconf OPEN_MAX" which is 1024. That's all if you running Linux. On Windows you'll have to run a Windows Server to accept many incoming connections.

I didn't read you code, I'm assuming you did a competent job modifying it.

Read the first quote above again. I already said that whatever option wins out in the poll will set the time of launch. So why should I make the launch later just for you... especially when you call me a Japanese scammer in your sig?

+1.

Bulanula: what happened to "OMG SCAMCOIN!"?

If you're at work, then tough shit. Sucks to be you. 4am is inconvienient for me also.

If my post helped, I'll happily accept a few bitmills!   15rGg6A1JFZV3b7TTbtpAaiYGdUD1e1oAm

Stop arguing with bananala and have a real discussion. Just ignore the guy... someone put a don't feed the trolls image here.

Are there any exchanges in the works, or should I continue development? I don't really want to spend the time on the code since there are dozens of other exchanges that could added the capabilities much easier than I can.

just a note that isn't mentioned in the unix help file, had to
Code:
sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev
in ubuntu 11.04 to get litecoind to compile (fresh reinstall as of yesterday)

litecoin-qt compiled just fine following the debian instructions(this was before I tried litecoind)

Now to try to get the miner to compile...

miner should be pretty easy, just get:
automake
libcurl
libcurl-devel

And you should be good.

Try following the first post. Or if you have time read through this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1925.0) and tell us what you find out.

got minerd working for localhost... will have to mess with config so I can have multiple computers connect to litecoind Smiley

I don't suppose there are any -nice- output options for minerd like cgminer has?  cgminer keeps running stats at the top of the screen that lets you know your hash rate, your shares/min, cpu usage, etc, etc... this spammage of 'thread # #.## khash/sec' will annoy me -real- fast, but I like to see some things.
