Are you still 100% sure I won't produce an alt that will stand out and meet your criteria for buying an alt?

no, but you seem to be 100% sure you will.  and that is the problem.  your arrogance in this regard is stunning esp given the ongoing rant about how TPTB have enslaved us for 5000 yrs and despite Bitcoin having surprised everyone including you and except for early adopters like me.  yet somehow, you are certain you will come up with the altcoin that will save us all.

I accede this point to you, except that you can't seem to see you are doing the exactly the same bravado combined with mono-thought in a domain where you are not expert and are just a layman-come-lately armchair chatterbox.

 my record is crystal clear and verifiable right here in this forum.

HODLing from $1000 down to $150, soon to be < $100. While I was fightingdisagreeing with rpietila, smooth, and others on the prediction for $300 back at $600 the first time, then I predicted the bounce, then I predicted the fall back to $300, then I predicted the small bounce and fall to $150. I made all of those calls. Ask the people who know me and were following me in Bitmessage. As well, I made posts on the forum about most of those timing calls.

 did you sell gold and silver at their tops in 2011?  i did.  did you short them as well?  i did.

Better than that, I predicted the exact timing of the rise from $25 and price peak and fall 8 - 9 months before it occurred. Here is was that public prediction


 did you buy Bitcoin when it was low?

Did you buy 1000oz bars and mint them into rounds at $9 in 2008 when there was a shortage of rounds in the USA. And resell them to increase your stash to 18,000 oz. I did.

Did you create a one man company in 1998 to create, market, and do customer support for Cool Page and Art-O-Matic, wherein Cool Page had 335,000 websites (verified by "link:coolpage.com" a former altavista feature) and > 1 million downloads by 2001? I did. (noting this was all before any of the social networks we have today, such as Friendster which launched in 2002). Did you contract the former programmer of Borland C for 1 week of work in 2001 paying $30,000 for his services ($100,000 in todays money) and then fixing an O(n) bug in 30 minutes that he couldn't find and fix after days of requesting the fix.

I had numerous major accomplishments and I don't need to enumerate all of them.

did you buy Bitcoin when you arrived here in Jan 2013 when it was $13?  no.  i'm not bragging here; only defending myself from your arrogant attacks and ad hominems.

Were you rushed by ambulance (because I could only crawl) to the hospital in May 2012 with an exploded acute peptic ulcer that was leaking stomach acid into your abdominal cavity causing all the internal organs to fail, in excrutiating pain (that can't be described! and I can handle pain I played football games with broken bones!) and then after surviving what the doctors thought might be fatal, that destroying my digestive system causing my Multiple Sclerosis to go bezerk, such from that point on I was suffering severe inability to think with debilitating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. What happening was because I am such a fighter and athlete my body when into adrenal overdrive such that I was constantly in state of panic feeling of "Fight or Flight" instinct. This caused me to feel desperation and lose $75,000 on an options bet following a promoter Graham Summers. So by the time Jan 2013 arrived, I had decided to disciple myself to make no major decisions until my illness could be cured.

Fuck if you use my performance while so incredibly ill as indicative of anything, then you are a fool.

I am coming cured now because I am smart enough to have figured out (with the help of listening and interacting with many others, something which your mono-thought myopia can't do) that the cure to Multiple Sclerosis is all about restoring the kilos of good gut bacteria.

And so now you have to deal with the real me. The one with those Herculian accomplishments in the past. And I know damn well my capabilities are in the exceptional class on the order of those core Bitcoin devs. My weakness coming in is I was not trained in cryptography and had to teach myself.

i glanced over your stuff, Shelby.  we probably think alot in more ways than you think.  but i, unlike you, don't claim to know the future with 100% certainty.

I did study A.I. formally. And thus I have enough understanding of what Armstrong has likely done, to know what he is capable of predicting. And his record since the 1980s shows that his extensive modeling (coupled with the largest database on earth, some $1 billion invested in collecting the data) can indeed predict the future with great accuracy. If you want to ignore the power of correlation and statistics when combined with A.I. pattern matching modeling, then you have a right to be humiliated.

I am confident because I understand the science involved.

And yet you try to tell experts in their domains that you know better than them. Is that wise? You loud mouthed fool.

Do I come into your eye clinic and boast that I know more about macular degeneration than you.

 thus, i don't diss Bitcoin in the face of what it has accomplished.  and that is "great things".  and Satoshi is "great" until proven otherwise.  the protocol has not failed nor is there any signs of it despite everyone complaining about the price.  the burden of proof is on you and until or unless you prove your claims with some real results then i remain highly skeptical of you.

You are an autodidactic n00b that has grabbed onto a short-term signal and proclaimed that makes you an expert of extrapolation while lacking the sampling size to avoid aliasing error.

Two apropos terms:

confirmation bias
Dunning-Kruger

P.S. You have some capabilities for logic when you find an argument that matches your desired outcome. But you block out all logic that doesn't concur with your confirmation bias. And this is what causes you to be so foolish. Pride comes right before the fall, and n00bs who bought Bitcoin in 2012 are ripe for this overconfidence myopia. Whereas, I have actual domain experience that allows me to work through many details and form a big picture based on correlating a lot of data which you have even admitted that you chose to ignore.

P.S.S. YOU DISRESPECTFUL ASSHOLE. Don't you know that proper etiquette in Bitcointalk.org is not refer to people by their first name if they have chosen to use a pseudonym? Do I violate you that way here? What is your first and last name? What is your physical or website address (you have mine)?

if you've been reading my posts recently you'll know i feel that is a fundamental misunderstanding by you devs.  you view the full node as the fundamental unit of the system whereas i feel it is the user.  my view is supported by phenoms like Uber, AirBnb, Facebook and just about every other successful internet company out there who scrambled to scarf up users as fast as they could before regulations kicked in or before their competitors could react.  that way the gvt couldn't very well say no to all their same constituents who voted them in who were also using these new services.  

You don't understand the fundamental difference. Uber, AirBnb, etc. want to be regulated businesses that are protectorates of the state. They just want to get big before that happens. The regulations that are written around their businesses (by or in collaboration with their lobbyists) can then be used as a moat to keep others out, protecting their profit margins.

That model doesn't apply to Bitcoin. At all.



Really? You can't see it? At all, says you?

I'll spell  it out then. Bitcoin simply needs to get into the hands of and be used by as many individuals around the world to best protect itself from gvt regulation and outright oppression. By constricting it with 1MB blocks causing unconfirmed TX's and generalized clogging of the system as shown in the Stress Test and the Trade Block data this is happening now. Even if you disagree, its intuitively what will happen. New and existing users will just stop using Bitcoin.

That is clearly analogous to the examples I gave. Understand now?

As I suspected, upthread you are criticizing Gregory Maxwell for receiving hardware donations and using those to mine (ostensibly a somewhat tax deferred paradigm to receive a larger renumeration for his development efforts which we have benefited from), and the skeleton lurking in your closet is you've been into hoodwinking Bitcoin ASIC miners and the forum members simultaneously to the amount of 3000 BTC!

Then you have the audacity to accuse me of leeching $10,000 off of the members of your thread as if you own them, boasting that you made this thread so popular.

I am a very astute read of personality. I said you are controlling minds and now the vested interest is clear.

You are a snake oil salesman ripping off the community.

These forums are rife with hidden corruption. Readers beware. Not all is what meets the eye. Usually the accuser is the one who is doing what he accuses others of doing. (this is a common human characteristic)

I suspect doctors are prone to these forms of "soft fraud". They go to medical school because they want to be rich and use the corruption of the State and professional licensing cabal to capture higher rents on society. Thus of course they have strong vested interest to believe that society and the State won't collapse. The double-speak.

What is happening to you now is potentially only the tip of the iceberg of the crumbling of your life coming...if you don't mea culpa to yourself about your slimy ethics...

Btw, I graduated from Culver City High School in 1983 and lived in Camarillo and Thousand Oaks, California when I wrote Word Up in 1986. And I made frequent trips up to UC Santa Barbara around that time. I was accepted and invited by the Dean of the Engineering department to enroll but declined to attend my father's alma mater in the deep south.

Any time you'd like to test out that black belt against an autodidact boxer with vision in one eye, let's give it a whirl in the ring wif I am in town? May I come on over? For sport of course, but just take a look at Antonio Margarito's face after the Pacquio fight to note this sport has consequences.

Btw, I had 100% retinal detachment in my right on Dec. 1 1999. I paid cash for the best surgeon in the USA to save my eye. The pressure dropped to 1 after the 3rd surgery and he was ready to remove the eye. He wanted to attempt one more surgery as a last ditch attempt, and I told him to stop everything. I threw out the bottle of steroid drops and went to the gym nonstop for the next days and weeks. Next doctor visit my eye pressure had increased to 4 and he was amazed (he had never seen that recovery in his practice). Then 7, Then 11. Now 14 years later I still have the eye. Hoping for innovation so I can get a cornea transplant (mine is horrible condition) and a new lens (mine fell out) and maybe even some repair of the interface between the patchwork quilt retina I have remaining and the optic nerve.

Cypherdoc employed his fraudulent reputation to pressure me to reveal my and even the audacity to try to pressure me to confirm my True Name.

Typical of politicians, oligarchs, and cartels, he forces his competitors to trial by public fire while hiding his dirty laundry behind the protection of his power over the group.

His entire modus operandi is the typical mind control pump promoter snake oil salesman paradigm of a politician or silver bug stock promoter leeching off his own readers.

He doesn't like Armstrong, because he doesn't like the competition for the control over your minds.

Cyperdoc will never write a single line of code to help us. He is not a worker. He is leeching off of us who will actually do the work in the trenches.

Actually I didn't until you said you were, but it's besides the point. I've removed myself from the case as far as I could for the most part, and it no longer matters to me. Thank you for the blessing.

Fact: promoted hardware that never shipped and a company that went bankrupt while pocketing 3000 BTC.

Speculation: ostensibly from the pockets of forum members who made deposits.

Fact: you have pitched yourself as one who got wealthy buying BTC low and early, but you never disclosed what % of your ROI was not due to investment but rather profiting off your reputation here.

You can talk about why we should trust your judgement?

P.S. I tried to warn you to stop digging your hole but you just couldn't stop. If you had stopped, I would have never learned about this. Vokain never mentioned this to me.

Your paranoia shows no bounds. And neither did your bravado. So only coders can contribute to the cause? How well then do you understand money which is a store of value whether it be from coding or doctoring? That same money off mine which has supported much of this community and specifically coding?

To all the non ciders in the room we see a trend here in opinion depending on who you are.
