Domain name discussion / Rag St - using a forum as a sales site.
« Last post by Kuffy on September 21, 2020, 05:32:46 PM »
I've just installed SMF on Rag St - elegance on a budget. This is another experiment, and I'm using it to help friends to sell new or nearly new elegant clothes. The forum CMS is an underused sales tool, and it gives scope for a coffee lounge type of chat area.

As I have closed the flip dump site, this offer is now no longer available.

Domain name sales / Re: xyz1 - My domain name auction and listing site

I seem to have far too many of these domain sales sites, so I am starting to consolidate them into one major site. Watch this space for more details.

The modern use of audio / Audio blogs
« Last post by Kuffy on September 21, 2020, 10:59:48 AM »
Video seems to have replaced audio to a great extent, but I believe there is still scope for radio as opposed to TV. This is especially true for people driving to work, or to business meetings. Home offices may reduce this, but audio could still be useful as a background whulst the listener is undertaking other tasks. An audio blog could be a useful way to provide a sales message, or as education and support for products.

If I get the time, I'll try to construct some files for domain names that i'm offering for sale.

I've given up on this idea, the increase in the licence fees seems to have reduced the viability of this.

The coffee lounge / Pets to guard your property and livestock.
« Last post by Kuffy on September 19, 2020, 01:56:22 PM »
I'm playing with domain names again, and I've just picked up Guard Pets - pets to guard your property. I love researching these topics, and I've discovered some interesting facts about animals that can be used as guards. Dogs are the obvious ones, but donkeys, llamas and geese are fairly common. Harrods even used a snake ( a Cobra ) to guard a £65,000 pair of shoes. Nobody stole the shoes. :)

This is under the idea miners are awarded for mining which doesn’t have to be the case at all

Wallet software can include a mining function and that can be used to mine the blocks instead, of 10 people have $50 they’re going to want to keep that $50? Unless you’re wanting to make a coin with public digital signatures.

Mining would solve the block creation problem, but I can't see how you could distribute the coins. If a member buys $50 worth of coins, and those are used to buy Litecoin (say), then the wallet of that member should increase by the equivalent of $50. If a couple of members are mining, but not making payments for the club to purchase assets, then should they receive coins? Any coins awarded would dilute the holdings of the paying members.

Why not mine? If there’s a software client that supports mining in the background of the machine then why not do it?

Public topics / The club crypto coin.
« Last post by Jet Cash on November 22, 2018, 01:56:10 PM »
We plan to create a crypto coin to register the ownership of "shares"in the club assets. As the underlying assets will vary in value, the coin needs to be able to reflect this, and all transactions and assets need to be transparent. The coins will not be available for purchase by non-members, and they are unlikely to be traded on any exchanges. There will be no airdrops or bounties. Mining and pre-mining is not relevant.  As transactions will probably be infrequent, blocks will need to be added on demand, rather that at predetermined intervals, and blocksizes will need to be small. Coins willbe sold or purchased by the club, or can be transferred between members.

Now the problem will be to discover software that is capable of supporting this type of operation.
