  1. DrugDiscovery@Home

    I spoke with the DD@H project admin & the CEO at the 2017 BOINC Workshop in Paris, they have separated from SONM and are now focused on making DD@H production ready & back to pre-sonm activity.
  2. Climate Prediction

    I talked to the CPDN project admin at the 2017 BOINC workshop who showed an interest in fixing the statistics dump frequency problem in return for whitelisting. This will require some follow-up to make sure they do in fact change the frequency of dump creation.

  5. New Coin Launch Announcement - GRC - GridCoin

    "Typically, when security vulnerabilities are disclosed by security researchers this is done in private and patched before being publicly disclosed within update release notes (so that it's not abused in production by malicious actors). There has been no intentional deceit against Gridcoin users, the security researcher's work was news to the majority of the community (due poor communication)." If this is the case why were the 'security vulnerabilities' disclosed by security researchers not publicly disclosed in some other way. You say they were disclosed in the update release notes I haven't checked that so I can't vouch for that. Considering that these 'security vulnerabilities' are of concern to all users, new and old, why wasn't a public statement released in September 2016? Why the security researchers didn't disclose the information in another way was because the breakdown in communication met their personal disclosure due diligence requirements (and because there wasn't a thorough process for security researchers to report such issues), their main focus was on their high quality research paper. Public hangout statements regarding the mandatory upgrade (You attended the GRC hangouts): 14th hangout 15th hangout BeyondBitcoin 181 Mandatory upgrade release notes: v3.5.8.2-Mandatory (CPID keys introduced to help prevent theft of CPIDs). "That's entirely up to you and frankly we can't provide you financial advice; there are always other BOINC teams to crunch for and very similar cryptocurrencies like foldingcoin/curecoin which could use your computing power if you desire rewards. You should always diversify your investments (monetarily, emotionally and time wise), rather than put all your eggs in a single basket." Your sarcasm here, considering you know me fairly well, is obviously not unintentional. I could be be equally sarcastic but I won't lower myself to your level. No sarcasm intended, you're welcome to diversify your monetary/emotional/time investments away from Gridcoin at your discretion. "Such individuals have severely degraded their own reputation by repeatedly creating poor quality content (It’s often said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result). I have seen zero complaints about reddit posts being downvoted, only steemit posts because there is a loss of potential rewards behind poor quality content being flagged by the community. I'd suggest that such users rather than regurgitating information they don't understand to the public, that they spend some time performing analysis on the topics to create quality content that people actually want to reward. If you disagree with downvotes, acquire more steem power to negate downvotes. Steemit != Gridcoin" This statement certainly lays out your 'modus operandi'. Flippant denigration seems to be your mainstay. I certainly hope that one day you will see that intelligent rebuttal, if you disagree with someone or think that a post is of low quality, will serve you far better than name calling or imposing your 'power'. I suppose this comes with maturity. I'll continue to utilise the full functionality of Steemit as I desire, it has zero relevance to operations of the Gridcoin network and the simple solution to negating downvotes is to acquire more steem-power. I have however muted & unfollowed the individual who 'denigrates' themselves, and now only flag their content when multiple users complain about said content. On the topic of rebuttal, why is said user not representing themselves (instead of yourself acting as their proxy) and disregarding 'intelligent rebuttals' on reddit/steemit?
  6. New Coin Launch Announcement - GRC - GridCoin

    Typically, when security vulnerabilities are disclosed by security researchers this is done in private and patched before being publicly disclosed within update release notes (so that it's not abused in production by malicious actors). There has been no intentional deceit against Gridcoin users, the security researcher's work was news to the majority of the community (due poor communication). This has never been an official Gridcoin 'ethos/statement', just a snippet which you began posting everywhere. How are you supposed to be trusted if you're a new user in the first place? It's an exclusionary stance and I don't stand by it; cryptocurrency is trustless by design for a reason. Likewise, life isn't fair, you don't need to be tolerant of everything, people can be who they want to be, they can be as private as they individually wish and they don't need to refrain from anything. That's entirely up to you and frankly we can't provide you financial advice; there are always other BOINC teams to crunch for and very similar cryptocurrencies like foldingcoin/curecoin which could use your computing power if you desire rewards. You should always diversify your investments (monetarily, emotionally and time wise), rather than put all your eggs in a single basket. Such individuals have severely degraded their own reputation by repeatedly creating poor quality content (It’s often said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result).

  7. DPOS/Bitshares tool kit

    I threw together this brainstormed doc regarding the use of Graphene for Gridcoin:
  8. DEVELOPER COMPENSATION

    Pool users have no say in polls, this is a downside of using a pool.
  9. New Coin Launch Announcement - GRC - GridCoin

    The vote outcome was for marketing AND development, you're making it out that the funds are solely for marketing, which they are not. 4 months into what, 20secs of video and a blank page? I don't seem to recall hearing RTMoney asking for 6k when he made his 7.5min video on Gridcoin https://github.com/Erkan-Yilmaz/Gridcoin-tasks/issues/75 Gleam.io is a better idea than thunderclap (extremely spammy), and a lot of steemit users are not solely cryptocurrency users due to the fact that there is zero investment requirement and it operates much like reddit. Why not involve users from the Gridcoin community instead of forking out heavily for professional voice actors with no involvement in gridcoin? Did you enquire? Because I don't see much community involvement. You aught to participate in the gridcoin community tasks, a couple users have expressed an interest in volunteering to do such work. https://github.com/Erkan-Yilmaz/Gridcoin-tasks/issues/114 https://github.com/Erkan-Yilmaz/Gridcoin-tasks/issues/119
  10. I don't think a thunderclap campaign is wise, it was terribly spammy the last time we did it and it did not have a large enough impact on google analytics to be worth doing again (IMO).
  11. I believe it's for the download-blocks and upgrade functionality, you should be able to deny the admin rights and launch it.4
  12. Make litebit.eu list Gridcoin

    Sorry, but I just don't think it's worth it.
  13. New Coin Launch Announcement - GRC - GridCoin

    1/2/3/4/5/6 -> It's not an actual foundation; 'foundation' is just the term given to a large chunk of GRC that Rob holds on behalf of the community. There was talk by A L I E N and Rob of creating a legal entity in the US a few months ago, but I've heard nothing further regarding this. RE: Mumble expenses - these were approved by community consensus, it's not like they were funded without approval from the community. You came off very aggressive in IRC regarding users who don't publicly crunch, there are many legitimate things to spend GRC on that aren't related to crunching BOINC (paying for development, advertising, bounties, etc). By all means, propose a use for GRC on this 1m block milestone.. I don't see much reason for gridcoin.io to exist, this unknown information could be contributed directly to the opensource gridcoin.us website: https://github.com/grctest/gridcoin-site
  14. New Coin Launch Announcement - GRC - GridCoin

    6000 euros is way too much, there's no way this is going to pass a vote. Speaking of voting, we're still waiting on the voting mechanism being hardened so there'll probably not be a poll on this expense for another few weeks. I do not like thunderclap at all, it's incredibly spammy (traderman spammed twitter like mad last time to the detriment of GRC's image) and the last one had near zero effect on gridcoin's google analytics. Why not post your content to steemit? It'll likely get upvoted quite nicely by the Gridcoin community!
