Be careful syncing from scratch! I just got shutdown temporarily due to high CPU load.

Wait for Fluffypony's script, it downloads a current blockchain database dump and doesn't hammer the CPU.

Hello Monero friends. Any feedback would be appreciated

https://twitter.com/aeoncurrency/status/687654160045617153

Its poll time. Cast your vote!

When should we ask @Poloniex to list #aeon alongside its other #CryptoNote coins like #monero and #boolberry?

1. Now
2. After LMDB
3. After GUI

I would say 3, Let XMR get traction then when people are used to it's gui launch. BTW what role is Aeon trying to fill?

FWIW I don't really recommend messing with limit-down unless it is interfering with your gaming, movie streaming, voip, etc. It is just going to make the sync process take longer and use about the same total bandwidth anyway. Usually "sprint to idle" is the best approach.

Limit-up is another matter, since that is a measure of how much you are serving blocks to other nodes. You can currently cut that down and leech if you want to. Although somewhat anti-social, it is better than not running a node at all.


Thank you for your comments on this. I hope we see many more nodes in 2016!

Added one yesterday.  Costs $15 US a year and took about 15 minutes to setup the VPS + the Monero node with Fluffyponys script.

Asks for  monthly fee here.

use the direct link i posted above for yearly fee.

NVM, It seems I had to allow a JS script to run to get redirected to the cart. Smiley Hate JS!



ADDED: What personal info is mandatory to register and checkout?


Added: OK, just the name fields need to be populated and they can be any thing.

hi guys,

i have much less connections on my node since i moved places and have a new ip.
did other nodes ban me temporary?

some days ago my pc crashed, since then i only get ~2-4 Inc connections.

can i do something to improve things?

in my old space i had like 50 or 60 connections..samme isp now, but different modem..could there be a connection limit?

max inc connections i had in the new space was like ~20

or does the new release change something? ...or are the inc connection just people syncing. and since its faster now there are in general less inc connections at the same time?

Have you opened up inbound connections to TCP port 18080?

Assuming the port is open, it is probably just going to take time for other nodes to connect. Most existing nodes will be happy with their current outgoing connections. Only new nodes (or existing nodes that lose an outgoing connection) will be trying to connect.

Hehe, yeah they shut me down for it. You must ask permission first apparently...

yes the port is open. yeah maybe my node has not enough uptime. i reboot maybe once a week if there is no crash lol (machine not dedicated to monero only)
please everybody reboot, i will never go offline again Kiss

no seriously, will try to keep it running and report back if i dont forget it.

Sorry about that. I got a bit too excited about it.

If you have another 0.9 node running, you can try copying the lmdb blockchain over to the new VPS and running that way without the high CPU load of syncing from scratch. I'm in the process of doing that now, will report back.

Talking about nodes, there is a reason why GUI would help. Before the recent release my laptop would be laggy as hell but now everything seems okay. But i simply dont want to start the daemon every time i turn my PC on. And i dont like to have a command line tab open all the time.

Now of course, i will google how to autostart and hide the process on Ubuntu, i know it is not that difficult. But still...you get the point.

Maybe there is an option for that right now?

There is a -detach feature now. I don't use it (I prefer screen) but some people were just discussing it on the Monero Support thread.

Thank you for your feedback. The poll ends in a few more hours. I will let smooth address the technical differences, but Aeon plans aggressive experimentation with a focus on developing technologies that facilitate mobile use. Making technical choices deemed "too risky or premature" for Monero (such as pruning for example) and retaining a light footprint are part of that focus.

Aeon started as a Monero fork and clearly benefits from Monero development. Monero can also decide to implement (or not) some of the new ideas introduced by Aeon.

NB: https://forum.getmonero.org/1/news-announcements-and-editorials/2452/monero-network-malicious-fork-from-block-913193-updates-and-resolution

From that post (which will be kept updated) -

Hi all,

The Monero network was (once again) the subject of an attack. Due to an error during the development of 0.9, Hydrogen Helix, we omitted a check that allowed for v2 blocks to be added to the network prior to the hard fork block height. Thus instead of forking on March 20, at block height 1009827, a v2 block was added to the network at block height 913193.

This is obviously problematic as not all services have updated to 0.9, and the bulk of the network hash rate is still on 0.8.x. We are preparing a point release to 0.9 that resolves this, but in the meantime only if you are running 0.9 you can do the following as a quick patch:

Shut down your Monero daemon
Grab a checkpoints.json file from getmonero: https://downloads.getmonero.org/checkpoints.json
Put the file in your bitmonero working directory (eg. ~/.bitmonero or C:\ProgramData\bitmonero)
Restart the daemon
As soon as the patched point release is out you can remove the checkpoints.json file, if you wish, and run the updated version. The checkpoints.json patch is a quick fix and does not prevent the attacker from replaying their attack at a later block.

- Poloniex was and is on the correct chain, coins are safe, wallet is currently disabled but trading is allowed.

- MyMonero is not affected, thus coins stored there are safe.

- The devs are preparing a point release to 0.9 that resolves the issue caused by the malicious fork.

At least they really succeed to fuck the blockchain, not like you and your claim back in the day...
