Your reward method is hoppable. The expected payout per vote when there are 30 votes already submitted is much higher than after, say, 200 votes.

B.

I've voted A which I feel looks the best. Option B just looks weird to me, it is as if there's a canal/river running through the chip..

I like B. I like how the "T" goes in and how it's blue.

Voted for A, since it's more pleasing for my eye.

The B probably has bug (the T is not ended properly on the far side). It would be better if it was not so deep, but I'd vote for A anyway.

I rather A

But, like stated earlier, I think A with a blue T would be best.  Grin

Ok based on all the constructive feedback I asked for some revisions made.

First revision will be colorizing the "A" logo.
Second revision will be making changing the "B" logo so make the cut less shallow, centered, and not run off the "chip".

I will leave this thread open till 7PM EST so nobody can say I manipulated the drawing by controlling the number of post.  Any post after 7PM doesn't count for the drawing.  Any posts by noobs who couldn't post here are considered appended to the last valid post of this thread for the purpose of the drawing.  Rule for the drawing are in the first post.

Thanks for all the great feedback.

So the pre-generated secret was (drumroll) 0.76313

If you don't trust me you can verify the hash posted in OP here:
http://hash.online-convert.com/sha256-generator

So once I figure out how many unique responses there are in this thread (plus the 4 from noob thread) the 1 BTC will be awarded to the person who's unique post is ROUNDDOWN(0.76313 * # of unique responses).

I got to run but I will do that later tonight.  If someone wants to check for me remember to
a) exclude all my posts
b) exclude all duplicate posts by same user
c) include the 4 noob posts from noob thread.

Hypothetically if there are 20 unique posts then 0.76313 * 20 = 15.26 and the 15th unique response is the winner.

noob thread (these 4 unique responses are to be considered appended to all responses in this thread)
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=61230.msg714342#msg714342

P.S. Next time I will just say the winner is unique post that is = (# of votes) * (secret number) to save me some work.  Hindsight.

0.76313
There are only 100000 possible numbers with 5 digits between 0 and 1. It was very easy to crack the "secret number" if it was this small!

I like the indent and the blue in B. However, the IC packaging should be a darker shade of gray to make it look more like a real one, and the T should be modified so it does not run off the edge.

Well still pretty hard to game but your right I didn't think about it at the time.  A better pre-generation to hash would be:
"The secret number is 0.493809809438.  This is some some entropy (kcdsjc923jdkjwklw)". Smiley

So I count 32 unique first posts and in this order.  Weirdly there were 48 votes cast so 16 people didn't follow instructions.  Good news for those who did is that your odds on winning went up 33%. Smiley

Magic number was 0.76313.
0.76313 * 32 = 24.4.  So 24th voter wins.

That is ... (drumroll) ...
Post by: Scott J on January 26, 2012, 03:29:04 PM

Scott J drop me a bitcoin address in the thread for your genuine slightly used Bitcoin.

(If somehow I made a mistake which is possible because my method for entropy sucked and it turns out you were the winner not Scott let me know and I will pay out a 2nd Bitcoin).

I think if I do something like this again I will just use (magic #) * (number of votes cast) and start at that post to look for the winner.  If the post is invalid (person is excluded, duplicate post, etc) then just keep going to next post until you have a valid winner.

I would vote B.

Several times, I am from Chicago.

My rationale is for the very reason that most shy away from it... the Falling Water effect throws it off-kilter just enough to speak to steganography, the color blue covers pattern disruptive, and the apparent illusion provides the sleight of hand that keeps the viewer's attention diverted from the purpose of the image. I also appreciate the visualization that the blue is water, yet there are games being played with the perception of the level relative to the perceived surface of the base material.

Splendid effort.

I picked choice A because it looks (to me) better than B, even tho I love the color blue. Smiley  It just looks/flows more naturally.
