SSD? I am still running a magnetic hdd.

Magnetic HDD should be about the same speed as SSD for this (sequential writing), sometimes faster.

Slow blockchain save is almost always due to not enough RAM, which results in a lot of swapping.

Regarding the Blockchain-write-to-disk racing competition, late 2014 season: Depends upon 4Gb ram vs. 8 Gb ram it seems.
New database powered sport cars will set new records during 2015 season, I have a penchant for foresight.

Happy about mining directly into mymonero webwallet, this is now "confirmed to work[tm]" However I would really like to import the webwallet adress into a locally stored wallet. Is this possible? I can fetch many details like heuristic words, viewkey, spendkey but found no way to import that, resulting into a new wallet.bin .
Have that feeling I am missing some inner mechanic working details on that spot.

The other question, since I've just seen that pool administrator Artides inside thread: How to flush a mined to adress onto 0,- ballance? Leaving mining dust today might get shrugged of, but I have to consider that 0,0xy XMR left behind could one day end up valued like "other coins" had been, then could be like $99 you just forgot inside a pant's pocket.

PROVE IT.

The current blockchain file is 3.2 gb. Writing that out in 60 seconds is 53 mb per second which isn't even breaking a sweat for an old HDD. Most HDDs can handle 100-200 mb/sec easy. Even a slow external drive over USB (where USB itself is the bottleneck) can pull off 30 mb/sec or a bit more. That saves the blockchain in 100 seconds. Anything slower than that is not the disk speed.

I bet you 20 XMR that my same machine writes the blockchain at least 1.5x faster when I install http://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-120GB-Toggle-Internal/dp/B009GG06GC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1418430951&sr=8-2&keywords=silicon+power+s70&pebp=1418430950059

Baseline is 45 seconds, so 1.5x faster is 30 seconds with new SSD.

Who will escrow the XMR for us? fluffypony?

I will conduct the tests and shoot video, if need be.

On a particular machine, sure. For example, if you are swapping lot, that will indeed happen on lot faster on a SSD, so it will speed up, but the underlying cause of the bigger slow down is the lack of RAM. People were talking about many minutes to an hour for a save. That is not pushing the limits of any HDD sequential speed, at all.

hey xmr peepz, been a while since i was around. saw a new update. i have all my xmr on a piece of paper, ie my old seed from the last version ago.

is it safe to upgrade my existing install & can i still sweep my old xmr's on paper since the number of words has changed? (Meaning will --restore-deterministic-wallet still work with wallets created on the older version? Just can't afford to lose a lot of xmr/money ya know, i'm in long myself, so i don't care about todays' price to be honest)!

Thanks, this is one of my fave threads, but it's so large i have to keep coming back and i can't keep up! Sad

Yes I have only 4GB RAM which seems to be an issue but when saving the blockchain my task manager says my HDD is maxed @ 100% which is 8 MB/s.  No I did't forget a digit. Embarrassed

This is what I get for buying the second cheapest Dell comp in April. Embarrassed Embarrassed

Yes it is maxed out doing all the swapping, since you are short of RAM. For swapping which is random access 8 MB/sec wouldn't be unexpected.

In theory this is supposed to work. There was a bug which I'm not sure whether or not has been fixed. If not then you will have to restore using an older version of simplewallet then you can use the wallet with the current version.

Some news from MoneroClub

Fixed rates and added editing of offers. Also you can anytime pause your offer and restart again.
Editing of valutas in existed offer is impossible, to change of trade pair just create new offer and delete/hide old.

Also I have tested node.
Some users may have disconnects with node after some time. The reason is not clear yet.
I myself extra tested the client on the slow channel (distance to server 2.5K km), the wallet from scratch, loaded all blocks with one disconnection. Just restart client and blocks loaded forward.

The other question, since I've just seen that pool administrator Artides inside thread: How to flush a mined to adress onto 0,- ballance? Leaving mining dust today might get shrugged of, but I have to consider that 0,0xy XMR left behind could one day end up valued like "other coins" had been, then could be like $99 you just forgot inside a pant's pocket.

From some time I made payouts rounded to 0.1 XMR.
It was made due to reduce of dust in blockchain and wallets. And the rest (0.0xxx) stays on the account balances till next payout.
For active miners it's not problem, the new earning will be added here.

I have transferred always manually any balances if somebody ask.
Now I have Idea that I will collect inactive accounts and will proceed autopayout for all balances one time per week.

Here's what I would do, when you need to spend funds.

1. Restore your wallet from the mnemonic seed using the old version you already have installed.

2. Upgrade to most recent Monero version.

3. When you open your wallet for the first time, it will detect it is from an older format and will provide a NEW list of seed words for your wallet.

Something seems to be wrong with MyMonero.com at the moment - if I try to start a new account, copy & paste the seed words it says "account does not exist!"

Hey people, I just made a new XMR website Smiley
I had no much time, but I hope you'll like it.
Nothing special, but as I said before, I wanna help Monero to success.
Oh, here it is: www.xmr.website

Feel free to say if it is bad or good.
I am no so much pro with design, but I hope this can "pass" on Smiley

Cheers!

Can someone explain to me who only occasionally watches Monero why it's going to shit pricewise? When I took a look at investing into monero but didn't it was at like $2, now coinmarketcap says it's trading at $0.37. WHY? Is Monero still working, is it still an untracable, anonymous crypto? Was it overtaken by a competitor? What's happening? I heard there was some trouble about attacks on the network and anonymint claiming he has broken monero or something. What's the state now? Monero looked super promising to me. Is there any real goods market for it? Shouldn't it attract certain types of markets for it's anonymous properties?

Would be happy to hear a short summary or at least link because there seem to be quite a of very long threads to read through to get informed.
