    No idea... Never encountered your situation or even seen anyone else with the problem. The only way that could have happened though, is if the transaction was dumped from the mempool before it was mined, or it was malformed somehow and rejected, but I'd assume it'd show as rejected in that case. You'd have to ask someone more knowledgeable, like a bitcoin developer. My guess it was dumped from the mempool, and wasn't retransmitted, but that's just a guess.

    LEt's see. 1 female coworker told about how she was molested by her father as a child and she still let's him see her children. :eek: Another female coworker told me when she was younger she used to hide under her brothers bed, and sometimes she'd hear him jerk off. :rolleyes: LOL. I'm sure there were more. Women always with the inappropriate discussions at work. WTF.............. I should have reported them!!!!! Oh that's right women report men, not the other way around.

    Because they plan to tear them down in 30 years anyway. They replaced the mcdonalds near me, with a brand new mcdonalds of what appears to be identical size. I saw nothing wrong with the old building, but they didn't like it apparently. Same with schools, they virtually abandoned the old highschool, sure it was old, but it worked, it's still standing there mostly empty, they rent out space in it. People seem to like new construction for the sake of it.

    Racist:A person who believes a particular race is superior to others. There are very few racists really. One could believe, that whites are generally smarter than blacks that wouldn't qualify as racist, as it doesn't infer that all members of the race are superior, as there would be black geniuses as well, but the probability of a white genius being born in a 100 births would be greater than a black genius being born in a 100 births. One could believe, that whites are more prone to sociopathy, maybe 3 out of a 100 whites are sociopaths, and 1 out of 100 blacks are sociopaths. Obviously it's better to have less sociopaths. But that isn't racist either, as it does not infer all whites are sociopaths, nor infer no blacks are sociopaths. As in there is a possibility of a equally worthwhile human being black or white. Racism requires believing all of one race are superior to all of another. End of Story. So, if a person believed a white retarded, rapist, murderer were superior to all blacks, that would be a real racist. If one believes some black people are superior in qualities to some white people, but believe in general whites are superior to black people that would not qualify as racist even. Highly prejudiced sure, but racist. Nope.

    edited to add. That transactionid, i don't think is valid, when I copy it,it contains a period, maybe some weird formatting thing with the forums. So,the rest might not be accurate, since the transactionid may be getting changed. Well, that transactionid doesn't show up either. That transaction was never included in a block ever. So, apparently it was dropped from the mem pool before it was added (not likely for such an old transaction,when free transaction could get in blocks), or maybe a double spend? situation. Or maybe a orphaned block? Regardless, that transfer was not included in a block. I've never had an invalid transaction ever. so, not sure.

    you can't reveal your private keys without explicitly trying to. You can double click one of those mystery transactions shown in the image you took then click the transaction when the list of transactions comes up to show the details, copy and paste in here. and then we can look up the info. Edited to add since your wallet is so old you can launch it with the -rescan option. maybe something goofy happened. make a backup of your wallet first just in case. IF that doesn't work, then you can always -reindex, which will essentially start from scratch as far as the block chain goes.

    I'm sure a lot of these guys are borderline rapists,but then you have women that say shit like you like my high heels, I call them my fuck me heels. Then a week later will act offended if you make an sexual joke. So, yeah, some men are a bit rapey, and a lot of women like to talk slutty one day, and then the next pretend to be the virgin Mary. Humans are fucked in the head as a general rule. However, this really isn't a left versus right thing. It's more of a male cleansing and a microscopic evaluation of everything male, while ignoring female contribution to the situation. As in I could go to hollywood right now if I were a wealthy man, and if I financed a movie, there would be no end of willing ladies looking for a break into a movie. Obviously Weinstein got women by trading influence for roles (for decades) or else he'd have given up years ago trying to fuck actresses using that tactic. So, a portion of the "ladies" are perfectly willing to be whores to get what they want, but somehow a whore is always a victim, which makes no sense at all. You sleep with your boss to gain an advantage over your peers, what does that say about the woman. Zero discussion.... crickets, always the victim.... Next... Anyway, I don't really think men and women are designed to work together.

    I use a trezor and bitcoin core. I use bitcoin core(back then it wasn't called core, but whatever), because that is the first wallet I installed back in 2010. Yes, 2010, but don't worry my dumb ass didn't do much at all with it tell much later. True it uses a lot of space, but that space is the whole verifiable history of bitcoin, if you use a wallet that doesn't download the history, well, you are relying on someone else to feed your node truthful data. Plus with core now you can run it with prune=10000 for like 10 gigs of space, after the initial download and verification it'll drop old blocks to keep it around 10 Gigs, so you don't have the whole history forever on your machine. But hard drive space is stupid cheap now, so not really a big deal, IMO. I use the trezor, because of the security aspect and keep most of my coins on that. I keep a small amount in my core wallet for spending.

    Yeah, need like 20 fold increase in users to get there. Then what? Well, at that level of adoption it becomes very likely that everyone will know at least a couple other people that accept bitcoin. Then paying the babysitter in bitcoin is highly likely, paying the lawn guy, etc... At that point nearly every single person will know a "good" person that owns bitcoin, so the "criminal" narrative will be rather weak as well, if the try to spin it that way. What that also means is if the "Goobermint" banned it they will have 10's of millions of middle class and higher americans pissed as fuck at them. There is no way in hell for example I'd ever vote for politician that even toyed with the concept of banning bitcoin, and there is a good chance I'd donate to their opponent as well. Even if that was Rand Paul (doubt he'd do that). The high transaction cost will likely be mitigated in 2018. There are schnorr signatures which help reduce the size of a transaction, there are the lightning network type proposals, which are very near from exiting testnet status and being deployed in real usage, and there is always the inevitable option of upping the block size, which will happen at some point. Sure it doesn't get us all the way there, but it's not like bitcoin is stuck forever.

    We aren't anywhere near saturation. We are at the point where a large percentage are "aware", not actually invested. The shoe shine boy isn't giving alt coin tips yet. Coinbase which is probably the largest "legit" exchange has a mere 15,000,000 accounts WORLDWIDE, and a large portion of those are likely just from curious people, or fake people trying to exploit the referral program. My guess is a few million "real" accounts with more than a trivial amount. Naw, we are maybe at the beginning of a potential frenzy.

    Sign up to coinbase, then gdax (their trading site), verify your account, enter your bank info, do a transfer of your cash. Set a limit order on gdax(no fees). Once you get a few thousand dollars worth of bitcoin, buy a trezor or ledger hardware wallet. Withdrawal to that, make sure you keep a back up of your 24 word recovery seed in a very safe place offline. (never, ever, ever, enter your recovery seed into a computer unless you absolutely have no choice). As long as that seed is never exposed to a computer you are as safe as anyone else on the planet can be. Buying on gdax is much cheaper feewise than coinbase. That is the way you do it if you aren't going to try to avoid the IRS. Coinbase reports to the IRS, so be aware of that. IF you want to go rogue, your options are buy off localbitcoins with cash, or mine bitcoin.

    All you need for bitcoin is a trezor, then it's immune to malware, as nothing can be installed on it remotely. IT only accept very basic known format inputs. Plus to upgrade the firmware, you must verify on the trezor device itself. even if it's plugged into a computer. I recommend anyone that has more than a trivial amount of bitcoin to get a hardware wallet. I have like 95% of my bitcoins on it. I've not heard of anyones trezor getting remotely hacked, I don't think it's possible because of the design. There are methods that worked if the person got your trezor, they could open it up, and read the in memory chip directly off the pcb (beyond me), but they've fixed that vulnerability even now.

    I'm here because I agree with most of Ron Pauls views. I don't think the gold standard will ever return though, and if it did by some miracle, I'm certain it would be corrupted as before. It's not that I'm "against" the Gold Standard as a Concept, but rather I don't trust government to adhere to anything for long, and I think I have a vast amount of evidence on my side to support that view of government. Likely I agree with you on most positions, but completely lost causes are just not interesting at all, when there are other things to fight for that might actually make a difference.

    Okay Don Quixote, please continue your quest for a gold standard, when there is near zero political, economic, or citizen support for it. Even if I thought the government would adhere to a new honest gold standard, there still isn't any measurable support for it. So, continue bitching about bitcoin for no reason. As if bitcoin has anything at all to do with the lack of a gold standard, or any of the problems currently facing the world. If a digital prison comes it won't be bitcoin, it'll be some government issued digital crap anyway. So twirl away at the bitcoin boogeyman. 1 2 satoshis after you, 3,4 better lock your door. Boo.....

    Ignoring, your blatherings about a failed Gold Standard and snarkiness, I don't have to debunk a system that has failed already. Just look why it failed and you'll see why it'll always fail. "HINT:GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED AND MONITORED System with no accountability" Sure a gold standard would be GREAT in theory, but the reality that government is more corrupt than the mafia, kinds of breaks my affinity for such systems. YEah, everyone knows newegg doesn't hold bitcoin, bitpay takes my bitcoin at the time of purchases, and essentially sells it to someone that wants to buy bitcoin. Oh the horror, and deceit. ...... However, Overstock does last I heard hold a portion, and would hold all of it, if suppliers start accepting it. A portion of small sellers accept bitcoin directly, openbazaar all the sellers accept bitcoin directly. It's a chicken and egg problem. Also, bitcoin online payments are not comparable to a Gold Debit card allowing online transactions either. With the Gold backed Debit card, you have to send your gold to them well in advance of your online transaction, so they can have and verify your gold. Whereas with bitcoin, I have total control of my bitcoin until the second I decide to pay for something online. IF you are referring to if we returned to a "Cough" government controlled gold vault that pretends to have all the gold required to account for all the paper gold issued, then you are insane to believe they'll actually honor that agreement for long, and we'll be right back to pure fiat in a couple decades.

    They can waste billions fighting it, and possibly slow it down a few years, that's about it. We are talking about Trillions of dollars here, not billions. 1. food delivery drivers. (24/7) nearly everywhere for almost no additional cost. 2. Retail to Home delivery 24/7 nearly everywhere (new application) 3. Trucking traditional becoming far more efficient, with 24/7 vehicle movement. 4. 24 hour UPS/Fedex/USPS delivery possible. 5 24/7 vehicle upon request nearly anywhere. No more cabbies or uber drivers. 6. EMergency vehicles. 7. Automatically patrolling police cars for "presence" and monitoring trouble areas.

    Well, obviously disliking bitcoin doesn't mean you hate Ron Paul, anymore than disliking gold would mean you hate Ron Paul. I flirted with the "gold" bug side of things for a while. But Gold is to flawed to work at scale in the modern world. Why? 1. The only way gold could ever be used for day to day normal transactions EVER, is if you hand your gold to a central authority, and then they allow you to sell microportions of your Database Gold for fiat to be used at store checkout. To me that doesn't have an essential quality, which is decentralizatioin outside of direct government control. IF the gold backed debit cards ever took off it would be trivial, as in one phone call easy for the goobermint to lock your account, or seize the whole of the gold vault. So, it solves nothing. Sure you can hold physical gold in your house, but that does nothing towards becoming a day to day currency of the masses. All the roads for gold and wide spread use lead to a central authority, so it is not a compelling case. You can not order off ebay with a Silver Eagle, and you never will be able to in a decentralized manner, but Ebay could today add the option to accept bitcoin, and bitcoin would remain just as decentralized as it is today or more actually because then ebay would be running nodes as well. That flaw doesn't exist with cryptocurrencies at least, I have in my possession right now the only private key that will allow the spending of my Bitcoins, no government, no corporation, can do anything to them, unless they want to send in a swat team and torture me for them, which at least makes it orders of magnitude more difficult to take them, as opposed to centralized database gold, which requires a phone call. IF I were an anti-fed gold bug. I'd likely have most of my money in Gold, and a small amount in bitcoin as the "internet" enabled layer of my "anti-fed" stash. I do actually buy things with bitcoin online, mostly at newegg.com

    A fraction of the miners drop off all the time, as equip ages, or dies, or whatever and new ones are added to depending on the environment. The difficulty adjusts every like 2000 blocks, meaning it can become harder or easier to mine a block after each difficulty adjustment. So, if it becomes unprofitable some miners will quit, and the difficulty will lower, meaning it'll take less computation to find a block which means profitability goes up for the remaining miners. Plus at least for a period some will mine at a loss even, as a speculative play, or to simply help protect the network, in the case of a massive price drop overnight.
