BTW, looking to buy some hardware with SPR again.

I placed 11850 SPR at 2000 Satoshis,
I want to revamp my MacBook Pro with 8Gbyte and an SSD (It currently only has 2Gbytes and a small 100 GByte SATA),
and also buy a 2-port KVM switch so that I can integrate my macbook through displayport into my main screen/mouse/keyboard setup.
After that, there might even be enough left for yet another Raspberry Pi,  8)

Thanks everybody.

@georgem - I can confirm I received a download link - Thank you.  I just got back from a long weekend in Florida.  I will take a look at everything in the next few days.  Thanks again - pokeytex

@pokeytex, sounds like you had a nice weekend.

Please let me know if your early preview-version works.
I would love to see a screenshot.

BTW, linux and mac versions should be available coming this weekend (+/-)

Also: lots of work ahead, spreadwallet is maybe 5-10% finished right now. Please take that into consideration while testing the preview-wallets. Thanks.

While I haven't had a chance to play with the new wallet yet - work has been murder this week - I did promise to send you .05 btc when the preview wallet came out.  Please find the tx id below.  Thank you - pokeytex.

I am very thankful to everybody who keeps mining (and trading) SPR, especially in this interim time (before I will be able to release the SpreadWallet, plus a new Spreadcoin-Daemon and more).

I take my hat off to you guys.
You are awesome!

I will never do anything that jeopardizes the value of SPR,
and I will do everything I can to create applications that will add value to SPR (and only SPR)
by being unique, innovative and useful.

Stay tuned!

@Patrons: sorry I got a little bit distracted today, please allow another 24 hours for the next update. Thanks.

Stay tuned, I have the next update almost ready.

Here are screenshots of the linux and mac versions





As you see, it looks more or less exactly the same as the windows version, which is one of my design goals.

Now, I have to finish 2 functions first that I have started and that need to be finished before I can release the next update, or else it's gonna be a mess.
So stay tuned, shouldn't take much time.  :)

Hey Patrons,
work is progressing nicely, most of the ca 20 work hours invested during the last 2 weeks were spent on improving some base classes,
and this will result in a bigger update (or two) during this last week of february.
Thanks for your patience.

Georgem, any preview of your latest creation?

Lots of improvements everywhere. Update coming soon.

The Spreadwallet is now capable of succesfully identifying and recognizing your local nodes (and separating them from external nodes),
and figuring out whether they are raspberry pi's or from other manufacturers.



I am using a combination of arp (address resolution protocol), netstat (network statistics) and pinging
coupled with access to a list of IEEE 802-2001 OUI (Organizationally Unique Identifier, see http://standards-oui.ieee.org/oui.txt)
that I use to lookup the manufacturer of a device (based on MAC-Address).

This way I get a good overview over the environment the SpreadWallet is operated in (devices, manufacturers, IPs, MAC-Addresses, etc..).

Local Nodes that are in full control of the SpreadWallet are now automatically shown with grey background and device symbol (if available - currently only rasp pi).
Extern Nodes that are not in control of the SpreadWallet (but which are used to create a "SPV"-style connection) are shown with transparent background,
as you can see in the pic above.

More Info soon. Lots of interesting details are in the making...  8)



Thanks again to my patrons for their support and patience.

@georgem - good morning.  I don't know if you had a chance or not but I am ready to run the SPR node.  I just need a little tutorial on getting it to operate under Raspian Jessie.  I can get to the part of downloaded and decompressed from a tarball.  However, I am lost on how to run it.  Thanks - pokeytex (linux noob)  :o

+1 to that xD
Do. Or do not. There is no try.

Hey pokey,

here are a few very rudimentary instructions of what you have to do.
(more detailled tutorial will come at a later time).

So, you already have Raspian Jessie installed. Good.
You have downloaded the spreadcoin daemon and decompressed it. Ok

Now navigate into the folder with the daemon, so that you are in the same folder.
BTW, I suggest you use a nice SSH client like for example Bitvise SSH Client (it gives you more possibilites than putty).

Once you are in the folder with the daemon, start it with this command:

Code: [Select]
./spreadcoind -daemon -server
It will tell you that you need to first create a conf file. (Us starting the daemon once like this has created the necessary .spreadcoin folder in your home directory)

You can either create the conf file on your computer and upload it via the SFTP system of the SSH client (put the conf file into the .spreadcoin folder),
or you can create it directly in the terminal like this:

navigate to your home/.spreadcoin folder like this:

Code: [Select]
cd ~/.spreadcoin
create the conf file like this:
Code: [Select]
cat > spreadcoin.conf <<EOFthen just continue typing in the next lines as they appear:
Code: [Select]
rpcuser=<your rpc username>
rpcpassword=<your rpc password>
daemon=1
server=1
EOF

You typing EOF will close and save the spreadcoin file.
You can add more settings in your conf file according to your needs.

Now go back to your spreadcoind daemon folder, and try the

Code: [Select]
./spreadcoind -daemon -server
again.

Now the daemon will start and sync, after a while you should be able to do access the daemon like that:

Code: [Select]
./spreadcoind getinfoor
Code: [Select]
./spreadcoind getpeerinfo
etc...

So business as usual.

During the sync process the daemon will use 100% of all 4 Raspberry Pi 3 cores, so you might want to monitor its temperature like this:

Code: [Select]
/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp
etc...

There are more things we can do, like move the spreadcoind daemon to the bin folder so that it can be accessed from everywhere,
also if for whatever reason you don't seem to have permission to access the daemon file, you might need to change its file permissions, like this:

Code: [Select]
sudo chmod 777 spreadcoind
or

Code: [Select]
sudo chmod +x spreadcoind
I hope this can also somehow help you, pokey.
Please give me your feedback and tell me how far you get.

BTW, it may easily take a few hours to sync if you start from scratch, so what you might want to do is copy the full blockchain data into your .spreadcoin folder via the SSH client to shorten the time.

We will also have to talk about routers and opening ports etc to allow your raspberry pi to have more connections etc...

My rapsberry pi 3 full nodes have been running stable for quite some time now.
But there can be all kinds of problems first, before a stable setup is reached.

Tell me about your experience guys, and if possible show me a pic or two of your rasps  :)
