It was the Bitcointalk forum that inspired us to create Bitcointalksearch.org - Bitcointalk is an excellent site that should be the default page for anybody dealing in cryptocurrency,
since it is a virtual gold-mine of data. However, our experience and user feedback led us create our site;
Bitcointalk's search is slow, and difficult to get the results you need, because you need to log in first to find anything useful - furthermore, there are rate limiters for their search functionality.
The aim of our project is to create a faster website that yields more results and faster without having to create an account and eliminate the need to log in -
your personal data, therefore, will never be in jeopardy since we are not asking for any of your data and you don't need to provide them to use our site with all of its capabilities.
We created this website with the sole purpose of users being able to search quickly and efficiently in the field of cryptocurrency
so they will have access to the latest and most accurate information and thereby assisting the crypto-community at large.
Sorry I've been kind of MIA lately.. I will try to look into these problems, thanks for the detailed information. I think it would be nice to enable the Command-H method of hiding the app.. the tray thing probably doesn't make much sense for Mac OS.
Hardware MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (Model 4,1) 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Software Mac OS X 10.6.4 Snow Leopard Bitcoin 0.3.7 (according to Bitcoin >> About)
Problems Preferences: the preferences I have tried all have zero effect as far as I can tell. "Minimize to the tray instead of the taskbar" & "Minimize to the tray on close" do nothing (including effecting the cpu usage...see below). Start Bitcoin on system startup is grayed out although I have added it manually to my login items. I have not tried "Limit coin generation to 'x' processors" or "Connect through socks4 proxy:", but I can only guess that these options are not working either.
CPU Usage: when generating coins top shows Bitcoin at ~187% CPU...this seems extreme? A friend just explained what a "nice process" is. Sorry.
Crash On Close: about ever other time I attempt to close Bitcoin using Bitcoin >> Quit the app crashes rather than closing like a friendly app should. Coin Generation: frankly I am trusting that this is NOT a bug, but just bad luck. I have been running the app for a few weeks now with zero generation. Again, I assume this is bad luck, but considering the other problems I wanted to mention it in case others were noticing this that were using my setup as well.
----------- If there are any known solution to these problems or if there is anything I can do to help sort them out please let me know. Thanks!
