gmaxwell: just editing the wiki page, but should ideally be done after the BIP is proposed, and before that point comments ought to be posted to bitcoin-dev instead to allow the drafter to possibly revise the BIP to address concerns
[bitcoin] djp3 opened pull request #9405: Contrib: Mac: Two changes to python bytes and string management to get the mac deploy to work (master...macPythonTweak) https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/9405
I've been noticing "/home/gmaxwell/.bitcoin: No such file or directory" show up on my console during node shutdown. Just saw it in 0.13.2rc-- I'd thought it was a new behavior in 0.14. anyone know what causes it?
Chris_Stewart_5: it would be a wrong assumption to assume the user wants all their memory used by bitcoin. :(
your comment wrt to bitcoin-qt
i think bitcoin-qt for example should just detect how much memory you have at startup, and based on that, choose something and let the user customize
I know blocksize/dbcache aren't really related, but I think I was thinking about that as policy for some defaults in bitcoin core.
the CVarInt in serialize.h is a bitcoin core internal thing, only used for the utxo database and undo data
According to the bitcoin.it wiki, "CompactSize" is a var int, and CVarInt is an "even more compact integer for the purpose of local storage (which is incompatible with "CompactSize" described here)". But it's described in all documentation there and elsewhere as a "varint". So the varint is the compact size and the CVarInt/VARINT refer to something else. Doesn't that cause confusion?
Sigh. He might have gotten confused here: "When spending your bitcoins after the upgrade to segwit, you will still be able to pay the original type of Bitcoin addresses that start with a ‘1’ (a P2PKH address) as well as being able to pay other users of P2SH addresses."
sipa: btw I still get no results from "host seed.bitcoin.sipa.be"
