< phantomcircuit> Luke-Jr, eligius is using the accounts system???
< Luke-Jr> phantomcircuit: no?
< phantomcircuit> Luke-Jr, then why are you calling getaccountaddress ?
< Luke-Jr> phantomcircuit: BFGMiner
< Luke-Jr> uses it to get a wallet address
< phantomcircuit> ooh i read your email totally wrong
< Luke-Jr> there is no account-free alternative yet
< phantomcircuit> replaced bfgminer/eligius in my head
< phantomcircuit> weird
< phantomcircuit> Luke-Jr, wouldn't getnewaddress work better?
< Luke-Jr> phantomcircuit: no, that would flood the wallet with new addresses
< Luke-Jr> I call it every block :p
< phantomcircuit> Luke-Jr, ok.... so what?
< Luke-Jr> phantomcircuit: getaccountaddress returns the same address until it is used
< phantomcircuit> everything outside of the accounts stuff is actually very fast even with tons of address/private key pairs
< phantomcircuit> it's only slow when there's also lots of transactions
< Luke-Jr> every 100 addresses invalidates the backup..
< phantomcircuit> Luke-Jr, actually there's an easier way to deal with it, use the address from the previous block initially and then switch once getaccountaddress returns
< phantomcircuit> ie make the rpc call async
< phantomcircuit> Luke-Jr, yeah that should be changed
< Luke-Jr> phantomcircuit: that would be address reuse
< phantomcircuit> Luke-Jr, it seems a reasonable tradeoff
< Luke-Jr> phantomcircuit: patch welcome? :P

< btcdrak> Segregated Witness Testnet now has an advanced blockexplorer with charts https://segnet.smartbit.com.au/
< wallet42> is there a way to tell bitcoind to sync only up to a specific height?
< wallet42> and then shut down
< afk11> wallet42, could use the 0MQ facility to tell your app a certain height was reached, and have it shut down? no guarantee it won't go beyond that a bit though.
< afk11> What's the motivation behind the ubuntu bitcoin ppa? Is it used much?
< afk11> Thinking since libbitcoinconsensus.so is build during the gitian build, we could add that to the PPA?

< Luke-Jr> afk11: to install Bitcoin Core on Ubuntu..
< Luke-Jr> afk11: using static binaries is not really a good idea in general
< Aleph-0> why is that
< midnightmagic> static binaries require recompilation of all dependent binaries to update.
< midnightmagic> and who knows where or why or how those are.
< paveljanik> midnightmagic, missing <irony> tags? ;-)
< Luke-Jr> Aleph-0: what midnightmagic said, plus it is wasteful in memory space, doesn't pick up on OS-specific customisations of libs, etc
