Welp, I'm using a test branch of whats known as the database build, which is technically still under development but has been running stable for me (and a bunch of other testers) for almost a month or so now.

I would suggest that if you wanted to run it, then there are ways to do it, but then I saw that you're in windows..... compiling in windows has not been easy for me (I didn't know how to do ANY of this in october when I discovered monero, so some things I still can't figure out).

Someone did manage to compile it in windows - I don't know if they posted it.

At this point, if you're stuck with using windows, I would highly suggest you investigate Ubuntu (rather than try and compile in windows). I used to think Linux was this big scary beast of a thing, what with the terminal, but now I prefer booting into Ubuntu. The Ubuntu release of linux is essentially like windows - fairly intuitive GUI. You can play with the terminal if you want to (say, if you're using monero!), but for other purposes you can use GUI.

I use Linux too (Arch), but in a very old computer which sometimes refuses to turn on. Anyway, it's 32 bits (Monero at least doesn't have a 32-bit binary version) and trying to compile myself is not something I would like to do (specially when there isn't a PKGBUILD). Also, its hard disk is very small (40 GB).


I'm debating offering a service where I make Live USB drives for people with monero database build daemons installed on them. Lemme know if you're interested... i'm sure I can source a cheap 6 gig stick and put ubuntu and bitmonerod on it.

Alternatively, I just highly suggest you install ubuntu as a secondary operating system. That way, you can choose to boot into it on your PC - this, in a way, makes your cryptocurrency more secure. While your doing whatever it is you need to do in windows, do you really need access to your savings account?

The another computer I have here is a notebook (this is what I'm using right now) which doesn't work well with Linux (problems with video drivers and overheating).

Also, I recommend using www.mymonero.com as your checking account (easy access, easy to transfer monero). If you want your own private store, then go the ubuntu route.  

Yeah, I know about this service and it works fine.

The alternative is to just wait until the GUI release.

And SPV wallet would be good too (specially if you want to go to mobile OS).

indeed... i've been monitoring no of nodes daily and look at what just blew my mind, there's more than what's on that screenshot but couldn't fit in... looks like interest in monero is picking up at a faster pace..



I agree with you, there are a huge number of nodes, and very few are accounted for by exchanges, pools, etc. Plus it doesn't count people who just participate by using MyMonero, exchanges, part time nodes, etc. It shows a lot of interest in the coin. The count seemed to increase a lot around mid December.

Someone is doing outreach for Darkcoin, so that might have contributed to the increased levels of interest.  Whoever is managing their Twitter account is actively seeking followers.

 
...Coinbase and uber love that "god mode."  ԅ(≖‿≖ԅ)


indeed... i've been monitoring no of nodes daily and look at what just blew my mind, there's more than what's on that screenshot but couldn't fit in... looks like interest in monero is picking up at a faster pace..



well coinbase proved itself to be one treacherous trojan horse in bitcoin community.. there were numerous reports on how they monitored some users' transactions and took action once they posed a threat to their KYC shit... i bet they've started datamining entire blockchain and monitor every move users make, the VCs that are pumping money are nothing but proxies for the government... so sooner or later the tide will turn to anonymous cryptos... just look at how banks are now turning hostile against cryptos..

aminorex proposed the bond, but i think there was not enough XMR pledged to make it worthwhile for him.

Until then, you can be your own "Monero Masternode" by buying and holding.  Cheesy

In other news, I noticed the Monero subreddit just gained about ~150 new subscribers in the past few days. It has been stagnant around 700 for months. Perhaps some new users are noticing the great potential of Monero.

Wow! That thing was stagnant for months and BAM! Wonder what sparked it? Cryptodice? Unease in the Bitcoin privacy debate? Or just people getting real smart real fast?  Grin
There has been a huge price increase in darkcoin the last few days. Perhaps this attracted more interest in coins with focus on anonymity as a whole. People will be looking at the various alternatives and discover monero. Makes more sense to buy into a better / non-premine coin where there hasn't been a rally yet, and anyone buying monero today is getting in at the early adopter prices.

People, forget Darkcoin. I think this comparision is turning very annoying.

Monero has to care about more its own issues, like GUI wallet, SPV wallet (in my experience, it's impossible to run bitmonerod because it eats a lot of CPU and more than 2 GB of RAM), eventual CryptoNote issues, media attention, etc.

Wasting time with comparision against Darkcoin won't make Monero a success. No doubt Monero is one of the best coins launched in 2014. But fighting with Darkcoin right now is a bad idea, it will just expose Monero's currently weakness. What makes Monero a great is not comparisions, but its technology about privacy and its talented developers.

except that I'm running bitmonerod with 98 megs of RAM



I don't think anyone mentioned we should fight with Darkcoin. I just think we end up explaining the differences betwixt the coins.



Just trying to syncronize...

Guys, the idea of building a forum from the scratch was nice. However it doesnt work. Even someone from the core team said that it failed. It is 2015 and lacks basic features that every forum in the world have. It is simply not productive.

Please, create a simple, built in 15 minutes, forum like this one. Let a community to be built. Let projects and ideas to be discussed.

Seriously guys, do it now please.

I kinda expect that there 'd be a website on it, though you could certainly use it for FTP, IRC, whatever. Usually these are for websites though, especially when they're in the website top level.
And while these things are typically aimed at the general public interested in browing the website, I concede that you could also make it a private site. I just also expect that such a website (assuming the domain name would be used for one!) would be aimed at people interested in monero as a whole, and not just one person ?

Assumptions, I agree. Maybe unreasonable ? I didn't think so, but you clearly did Smiley

Edit: sorry, I could not resist the trolling as the reply was so uppity, but I won't do it again Tongue The first post is obviously my opinion, I won't be offended if you think we need another, er, domain name of course.

Wasn't mid December when people started test driving the DB? That bodes well for when the DB gets released.

Help test Monero Client .NET with its new remote daemon feature. It's making great progress. I'm running into a freezing issue when sending transactions with it, though, so it'd be great to have others test it and see if they can reproduce the same behavior.

Make sure to get v0.41.1 here: https://github.com/Jojatekok/MoneroGui.Net/releases/tag/v0.41.1

I've been running the database version on windows on and off for a month or so with no real issues, except that occasionally bitmonerod hangs on exit, which is apparently something that happens in general, not just on db version.

He already tried to ask the devs to implement that on Monero but the whitepaper had too many flaws.

Is he working on fixing the flaws?

A few years ago I got the 49ers winning the superbowl at 7 to 1 odds--by the time the superbowl arrived the 49ers were favored over the Ravens and I thought, "Why can't I sell the better odds to people betting on the game and make a buck off my early odds?"
