I got my wallets up and running, so I just needed to be patient. I'm transferring my NXT and assets to an online wallet on secureae.com so that I don't have to keep dealing with the wallet client. Hopefully I can just log in and do what I need to do.

It looks like I did find the progress status on the "status" tab. It currently has me on January 16, 2015, but moving forward, so I guess I just have almost a year to go on downloading blocks. That's reassuring :)

Hopefully I can open my wallet once the status tells me all the blocks up to right now have been downloaded.

I don't really understand any of the part referring to old and new API, but I agree with what I understand to be the sentiment. I struggle with the NXT client every time there is an upgrade, and if I haven't been "in the loop" for a few weeks or months, then it's even worse. It's really frustrating that I can't just install my wallet, run it, and expect it to work. I have to wait hours for stuff to download. With this new version, I'm waiting and waiting on the "loading resources" part but I have absolutely no indication of the progress or how long it will take. NXT has been around for almost two years and the wallet has NEVER been truly user friendly. Who exactly are you expecting to adopt and use NXT? People with lots of technical know how? Or would you like people like me who are decent with computers and can edit a line of code here and there but would rather not to be able to use it? How about those people who use computers but have no actual technical expertise? Or the ones who aren't willing to fight with a wallet just to be able to make it work?

The software landscape is littered with software that has died because of discontinuous changes.
Software continues to thrive based on its user base not just because of its developers.
Software without users is just an interesting lab project that no one will remember.

The technology reasons in this case or the rights and wrongs of the technical changes are irrelevant.
The strategy to provide a discontinuous upgrade for a platform that is young and still vulnerable is flawed as it disconnects a user base which is critical to its continued growth and adoption.

Positions seem to be becoming entrenched and people are threatening which is not helping.
This needs to be fixed or NXT will suffer at a time when it is positioning itself to grow again.

If the 1.5.x API cannot be supported by the core of 1.6.x what can be done to mitigate the impact of this?
 
Can we provide a legacy translator where people can continue to call 1.5.x API and it connects to the core via a translator 1.6.x rather than people running 2 versions of NXT?

I just downloaded and installed the latest version of NXT. I used the Windows installer. When I try to start the NXT server, it stays on "loading resources" for hours and hours. I'm wondering how long I should expect it to be loading resources before I'll be able to run the wallet. Is this a matter of leave it running overnight and check back in the morning, or is something wrong?

Thanks.

I think it took me 2 hours or something like that.

It's already been longer than two hours for me. Once it's done "loading resources" what happens next? What should I expect? At what point do I give up if nothing seems to be changing? There doesn't seem to be an easy way to check on the progress, and the "status" doesn't tell me anything that I can discern. Thanks :)

It takes forever for the java program to get to the point where I can open my wallet. Is this a first time thing? Or is it always going to take a long time?

I haven't totally given up on Chris yet.

I haven't given up on Chris either. The latest update on his website was very detailed about the challenges he is facing, and it's clear that there is still more waiting on payments for most members. Note in particular this bit of info: At this moment the payments are functional for a percent of users and will become functional gradually for entire database of legit users.

Hopefully he will keep posting updates as he makes more progress.

In the mean time, you can pick up shares for 1/5 their original value.

pf, it's great to hear from you :)

PF,Give me my money back!Give me my money back!Give me my money back!

I'll give you 0.1 NXT for each of your shares.

I'm no expert, but I believe the recent crash in the price of Bitcoin may be affecting dividend payments for this asset.

It's taking forever to process blocks.

That was a totally unnecessary and disgusting comment. Not what I was hoping for when I checked the thread this morning for updates. Can we please keep it clean, if for no other reason than the possibility that some of us might find innocent children reading over our shoulders every so often?

12
I've now talked to Chris twice, every indication I have recieved is that he is not out to burn anyone, but he is just buried under an avalanch of problems that started with people managing to attack his site with CSRF attacks.
And unfortunately he's still running a one man show, but he almost has things sorted.

That's good news. When did you last talk to him? Also, what does CSRF stand for?

Public Nodes / VPSs / Re: Need help setting up a node on AWS.amazon
« on: January 18, 2015, 03:29:12 am »
I can help you, but you must have some experience. Can you spin up an "ubuntu 14.04 server" instance and install Apache on it? If you can get that far on your own - there's hope. Post the link to the default Apache page (coming from your AWS instance) and I will guide you trough the rest of the steps.

I can give it a shot. I see that there are some tutorials available to complete both steps you mentioned so I'm optimistic. I'll get back to you once I accomplish the "assignment." Thank you for breaking it down for me so I know where to start :)

Would someone on this thread be willing to teach me how to properly set up a NXT public node so I can participate in this program? I tried to follow this tutorial to set up a node on AWS but ran into some snags: http://wiki.nxtcrypto.org/wiki/How-To:CreatePublicNodeAmazonAWS

I now have AWS free for one year so this is a great time to learn how to set up a public node. Although the tutorial focuses on the windows OS, I am open to learning how to set up a node on other OS's that are listed as options--whichever one ultimately is easiest and most robust. I'm hoping to really learn how to do this right. I just need a good teacher. Any takers?

Thanks in advance!

You have to create 3 rules and set them exactly as shown in the picture:

I tried to set up a node last night and got hung up on this step. AWS would not allow me to create the rules as shown here. I kept getting an error message. Is there an update to this tutorial anywhere?

I tried to follow the instructions in this tutorial (http://wiki.nxtcrypto.org/wiki/How-To:CreatePublicNodeAmazonAWS) for setting up a NXT node on AWS.

I ran into a few snags and places where my experience did not match the screen shots. Step 8 in particular was problematic, as AWS did not allow me to set up security settings as the screen shot indicated. I ended up just skipping that step and moving on.

When I finally had my instance I ended up with one that was unable to connect to the Internet. I tried to use the instance explorer browser to download and install java but the browser wouldn't display any pages. It wouldn't connect to anything.

Has anyone here used AWS to create any kind of node? If so, would you be willing to take me through the steps? At the very least, can we have an update on the steps presented in the tutorial?

Thanks!

No, I think it might be running for a while already, just counting down to the normal Friday payday when things were still running normally.

My brother found it - I don't know anything about it.

I think you're right, just an old countdown to the day LTCgear used to pay out :)

I'm glad to hear Chris (Bee) contacted The Mage. As for the moving demand withdrawals going live date, I'm starting to wonder if that isn't auto-updating. I hope not. Then again, dealing with DDoS attacks is no picnic.

Also, as has been pointed out before, communication is rather... unclear.

At least we're still hearing from him on a regular basis.

20
You're mad at me but you're cool with LTCGear and pf....
Come on man, I didn't steal your money  ;D

I'm not mad at you. I just think in general it's really pointless to post stuff like "Well it was obvious from the beginning that this was too good to be true" at this point in the game when you didn't take the time to post your concerns earlier on.
