So can I just copy over my old wallet file in Windows or do I have to recover my wallet?

I'll focus on a side point, since I have no clue why the windows version would silently die:

2015-Dec-31 17:43:17.718750 WARNING: no two valid MoneroPulse DNS checkpoint records were received

That is odd. Can you ping checkpoints.moneropulse.co, checkpoints.moneropulse.se ?
If you have dig, what is the output of:
dig -t TXT checkpoints.moneropulse.co
dig -t TXT checkpoints.moneropulse.se

If you have another DNS tool to run on the same machine bitmonerod runs on, you can use it instead to query the TXT record for these two hosts.


I go the same error on version v0.9.0.0-release running on Ubuntu 14.04 and Trisquel 7 Here is the dig output:
Code:

I have just re-synced from scratch the blockchain by new 0.9 release Win64 binaries. All things seem to be SUCCESS. Below I leave some number facts:

Total time to re-sync from scratch = 2h 25m
Maximum memory usage visible in standard Windows 7 task manager during re-sync = 60Mb
Overall Monero database files under c:\ProgramData\bitmonero = 7.6Gb

Simplewallet.exe have requested to import my wallet from old format - done instantly.

Note, 'refresh' command must be typed in simplewallet console to see up-to-date balance!

!!! MONERO DEVS CONGRATULATIONS !!!

I agree, the DEVS KICK ASS.

I have also just synced the blockchain from scratch using ver0.9 binaries released for Win64. All seems to be a SUCCESS for me as well.

Total time to re-sync from scratch = ~50mins




Very fast! Unfortunately, it does not work happen as such in my PC (Windows 7 64bit). It took me 2 hour sync-ing 128k block (out of ~900k block)

hi guys i have around 1k xmr that always stays locked and never gets unlocked.
i do not know if those 1000 are real or if they somehow magically summed up becasue i did send money to myself several times...

anyway, yesterday i tranfsered money to my cold wallet...later i realized it did not work, money was still here in my normal wallet..very strange, i rescant everything and now have this crazy behaviour. this event shoked me, if i wouldnt have used rescan_spent i wouldntn have noticed it was not send to my cold wallet. i hope this did not happen with my old hot wallet i deleted ..  Grin

dont want to open cold wallet to see whats up.

allready did rescan_spent + rescan_bc, without success, the 1k stays locked, also if i wait over night.

any ideas ? i know people had similar problems but they didn have a corrupted balance later no?

Two things that occur to me:

1. Can you try restore from .keys file rather than rescan, just to eliminate potential rescan bugs? Just delete the .bin and reopen it.
2. When you transferred did you get a txid? If so, did you check if it hasn't been mined yet (on a block explorer)?

It sounds like you might be rescanning whilst a tx is not (yet) mined, but that's just a guess based on the info.

ote_core/miner.cpp:239 Starting miner but it's already started

Isn't this clear?

Your daemon is already mining. The wallet has commands to start and stop mining but once you start, as long as the daemon is still running it will continue to mine even after the wallet exits.



No it wasn't clear to me because that message was immediately followed by:

2016-Jan-02 20:05:06.652046 [RPC1]Failed, mining not started
as well as a similar message from simplewallet.

Also I always stop_mining before exiting but after checking things out it seems this time I didn't and just exited.  I had no idea you needed simple wallet to start and stop mining but not to continue to mine once started.


Signed, resident idiot

Probably because you have an HDD, syncing is way faster with an SSD than an HDD.

xpost from Cryptonic's thread: Now you can bind a Monero address to a physical XMR coin! Very cool.

Dear friends! Happy new year!

From now on Cryptonic physical Monero coins are little more than just collectibles.

Moneromooo has kindly added an optional user supplied entropy to his offline wallet generator. So now it's possible to use it with cryptonic coin IDs (and a password for more security) to create a cold storage associated with it.

https://github.com/moneromooo-monero/monero-wallet-generator/

https://moneroaddress.org/

There is a field Custom entropy. Just fill in your coin IDs and a password, for example:

Code:
1Fe58dA D7auQk6 your_password

...and click Generate wallet!

Once I lost (luckily small amount of) Bitcoin from address generated by some paperwallet site using 'brain wallet' shit option - custom phrase entered. So, in seconds after change from transaction went to that address it was withdrawn bo some clever bastard owner of 1LdUHTEVxWJhrhKfy4H3VuYDnTHQVjsdBn.

Therefore my question: is it safe to use custom entropy?

I'm afraid, human brain is not good at providing uncrackable one.




Upd.: Shit it was not small, - I could bought ONE monero for those satoshies. And they were stolen..

That's a bit like getting in a plane cockpit in flight, and wondering: is it safe to disable the autopilot ?

For some, it will be. For most... it will be down to this:

Once I lost (luckily small amount of) Bintoin from address generated by some paperwallet site using 'brain wallet' shit option - custom phrase entered. So, in seconds after change from transaction went to that address it was withdrawn bo some clever bastard owner of 1LdUHTEVxWJhrhKfy4H3VuYDnTHQVjsdBn.

Therefore my question: is it safe to use custom entropy?

I'm afraid, human brain is not good at providing uncrackable one.




Upd.: Shit it was not small, - I could bought ONE monero for those satoshies. And they were stolen..

Generally not, just use the normal one. Custom entropies are risky and should only be used if you know what you are doing.

Privacy matters, use Monero - A true untraceable cryptocurrency

Given the stated use case above it should be safe, assuming you trust the manufacturer of the coin and the coin itself has been kept secure from disclosure of the coin ID.

A "strong" password helps a bit but most of the security comes from the coin ID itself.

Although....I'd suggest using slow hash for key stretching as the simplewallet password does. That all but precludes any useful brute forcing of passwords. I thought that was in the standard for physical coin keys, but maybe not.
