Is there somewhere I can download the blkindex.dat and blk0001.dat files as I cannot redownload the whole thing again on my slow netbook. Thank you.

Coblee, some others might also like the above so maybe consider doing regular snapshots of this etc.
Run your netbook with -addnode=(ip of your main computer) and it'll go in a couple of minutes.

OK that went pretty fast. Hope LTC makes it. I am no longer a subject of King RealScam and his various taxes and wallet deletions. ScamCoin deserves to die now. Way to go LTC !

Funny that the AMDFam10 miner is faster on i7 too LOL.

Is there litecoin faucet and blockexplorer ?

It wasn't that long ago when you were calling me a Japanese scammer. Smiley

There's no faucet because I don't believe the faucet really does much good. It's just another way for people to get free coins.
Here are 2 block explorers:

http://explorer.liteco.in/
http://blockexplorer.sytes.net/chain/Litecoin

Well things have changed between me and SC Smiley

Yes, it's a way for people to get free coins, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.  A faucet (or a way for people to get a free coin) can help people who are just finding out about cryptocurrency to have an increased interest in the whole concept.  If I install the client, that's cool, but if I can get a free coin someplace to get started, that raises my interest and even commitment to the project -- now that I have a coin, I can't let it go to waste Smiley  Anyway, my $0.02.

I agree. That's why I'm working on adding p2pool to the litecoin client. So once you start the client, you can turn on mining and easily earn a few litecoins for yourself. That would do more to raise interest in the project I think.

both would be good imo,
I cant fund a faucet, but would certainly send some regular funds to and support a properly setup and run faucet Smiley

BTCLot will be hosting a special litecoin poker tournament tomorow.

Join us !

http://liteco.in/threads/btclot-com-new-way-to-gamble-litecoins-we-do-have-poker.24/#post-89

Thanks BTCLot. I will be there! If you lose litecoins to me, think of it as a donation to the project. Smiley

This may be the first REAL use of litecoins for most people!


If people want to join, make sure you transfer litecoins to the site beforehand. I think it will be a 10 LTC (maybe more) entry tournament and cash games for those that get busted out early.
Also, it's daylight savings adjustment tonight in the US, so check your watches and check https://www.google.com/search?q=time+in+gmt
The game starts at 22:00 GMT
See you there!

Nice. Are you going to release 64-bit version of the client with 64-bit miner in it? Built-in miner is very convenient but slow compared to 64-bit minerd...

As coblee said buy in will be 10 LTC and there will be cash games for those that get busted out early. I recommend transfer litecoins to the site beforehand because the tournament will start exactly at 22:00 GMT.

What prevents you using the 64bit miner manually ? What good is a 64bit client when the miner needs to be 64bit but the client can be 32bit as it is not mining but just a front end for the minerd.exe ?

What you should do if you want to be serious about in client mining with minerd you should probably include several builds of it and give a choice between 64 and 32bit at least. Otherwise it is not much use.

How hard would it actually be to create some kind of miner launcher or whatnot that launches the appropriate miner build for your system and CPU anyway?

Coblee,

 Any chance to reinclude this pull request into Litecoin Linux version?!

 https://github.com/coblee/litecoin/pull/5

 I really need that option...

 I'm trying to download the diff / patch but, I don't remember how to do it... lol

Thank you!

I spent the past week working on getting p2pool ported over to Litecoin. I'm happy to announce that we now have a distributed Litecoin pool!
A lot of thanks goes to forrestv, the creator of p2pool.

And we have found our first block: (check out how the generated coins are split!)

See here for details about the Litecoin p2pool:

I'm likely the person being talked about. I didn't find a JS implementation of sCrypt, but I did find a Java one -- since the methods are static you should be able to call it from JS. Couple that with JSMiner, and it shouldn't be too bad to get one working. Course, I say that and it's been about a week of work from me (in between classes and such) with nothing to show, although I do have a much deeper knowledge about the protocol/blockchains/etc. If you want to take a crack at it though, please do --
Do you have a link to the Java implementation handy?

Awesome.  P2Pool technologies are the future of all crypto-currencies.  But then again that is just my 2,000,000 satoshi's.

AFAIK the correct parameters to pass are 1024, 1, 1, 32
