  1. Can I suggest that you backup your wallet and conf files, and shut down your wallet until you get caught up? You'll get all your interest and earnings due when you get back online with 4.0. Getting caught up in the fork might bugger up your otherwise fine wallet.
  2. I recommend upgrading to 18.04. Downgrading to 16.04 can be painful and problematic. Upgrading to 18.04 is a one click exercise with millions of successful runs...
  3. Artful is end of life - I cannot even build for it any more. 😞
  4. Not at all CRHRO. The Gridcoin community is in pretty good heart. There are so many places to trade grc now that it is difficult to maintain volume on all of them. Aside from that Poloniex has been purchased by Wall Street. Expect BIG changes there going forward, some good and some bad.
  5. Did this used to work on Raspbian? Does this mean someone hasn't compiled this for Raspbian/jessie yet? Greetings IronFix! You are most of the way there with the PPA - tweak your apt sources following this guide, and tell the PPA you are on the Trusty distribution. Also note that you will need to install a single dependency manually. It's all in this guid: http://wiki.gridcoin.us/Linux_Downloads_(pre-compiled)#Using_the_Ubuntu_PPA_with_Debian_Jessie I am working on pure debian builds, and have uploaded them to bintray.com/gridcoin. However, in my ignorance I failed to sign them properly, so apt rejects them. That should be sorted this weekend. caraka
  6. This is happening in a few hours! NOTICE to PPA users: On April 1st the gridcoin-daily PPA will no longer host production builds of gridcoinresearchd and gridcoinresearch-qt, but rather development builds. Please migrate your main wallet to use the gridcoin-stable PPA instead, unless you want to live on the edge with all your coin. A daily PPA is by definition meant for daily builds of whatever is in the development branch, in whatever condition that happens to be in. Now that we have an active development branch, that is what gridcoin-daily will be used for as of April 1. As of April 1, testnet and beta users are encouraged to run wallets from gridcoin-daily for debug purposes, while everyone else should use gridcoin-stable. Gridcoin-Stable PPA: https://code.launchpad.net/~gridcoin/+archive/ubuntu/gridcoin-stable

  8. Yes Earl, upgrade first, and only download blocks if the new client fails to sync up. (which is likely, so you probably will have to download blocks)

  11. Random thought: What if the foundation ran a 'bellweather' investor wallet with say 50k or 100k coins. This wallet's PoS staking time series would be used to calculate an exponential moving average of the number of coins staking on the network. This EMA could be incorporated into each superblock via the NN and used instead of total coin supply for the payout caluclations during the superblock's lifetime, much like the mag in the superblock is used. The EMA favours more recent historical data, making it more responsive than a simple moving average should whales rejoin the network. The EMA would smooth any minor disruptions to the wallet running, with the NN capturing each pip on the curve, making that information availailable to the superblock formation. The amount of coins in the bellweather wallet could be optimised to ensure sufficient pips when network staking dips, with interest earned scraped off and returned to the foundation at some optimum interval.
  12. I confess I have failed utterly to even get into the chain over the last three weeks of testing. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, but I'm suffering the noob's dilema. I've been stuck on the newbie block loop perpetually, despite deleting keys and starting over.
  13. Greetings I've been away for a week and only just installed the last update. with the testnet addition to my keys, I am officially Invalid. May I also have a deletion of my cpid for a fresh start, please? 9dbd2eb638bfda3dc573a8e5f1ce7a4a We'll have another go at getting into the testnet chain! Cheers caraka
  14. Difficulty hit zero so I have reverted my wallet to Investor to keep the chain alive. I have been unable to get past the newbie block loop for 5 days. I've now got a bit of interest to catch up with....
  15. Greetings ​I am still stuck in an endless loop of null newbie blocks, despite my magnitude now appearing in the list mag and the wallet itself. ​ Have we had a new superblock since I last posted a few days ago? I have posted a couple of PoS blocks since the mag appeared, but not nearly as many as I was as an investor, and none in the last 36 hours. I'm missing out on the false joy of earning 550 grc per day!
