The authorities said the pair were engaged in a scheme to sell more than $1m (£603,000) in bitcoins to users of online drug marketplace the Silk Road." from http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/tech...
It seems that BTCKing and Bitinstant have had people arrested over money laundering charges, and are now unavailable. If running an exchange counts as money laundering, then is the USA making itself a no-go area for bitcoin exchanges? Or will a reputable bank step up and run one complying with money laundering regulations." Link to Original Source top
Bitpint! Cambridge pub acepts Bitcoins as payment for pints(of real beer).
Grantbridge (1377621) writes ""The Haymakers in Chesterton is now accepting digital currency Bitcoin for its wares — and all you need to pay your way is a virtual Bitcoin wallet and a QR reader. Rob Curtis, one of the managers at the High Street pub, said the virtual currency was âoecatching onâ at the watering hole and fittingly for an online innovation, word has been getting around on Twitter."
You can now use your bitcoins to buy real beer in the Haymakers Pub in Cambridge (Chesterton). It doesn't mention how they control for the fluctuating exchange rate. The pub produces a QR code on the till you scan with your smartphone and make the payment that way. Is this the first pub to accept bitcoins for beer?" Link to Original Source top
Grantbridge (1377621) writes "I am running a SuSE 10.2 system, without root access. I had to install a new version of GCC (4.3.x) to be able to compile some c++ software. I installed this into a dir in my home directory, and added it to my LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
The software then compiles, but when I try to run it I get the error message:/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found
so the program is using the default/usr/lib64 library rather than the newer one on the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. If I run ldd it shows that the software is using some new libraries in my home dir, but its not using it for all of them
I have been unable to find any solution to this, is there some obscure linux thing which prevents libstdc++.so.6 from being overridden by LD_LIBRARY_PATH?
I am not massively experienced with unix systems, so there is probably some very basic thing I have missed, but is rarely stated as its assumed to be too simple!
