I don't know about OS X :)
I just have a little indicator on the top right.

ah ok

@PiDelport
Some kind of thing that displays your CPU and disk utilisation in real-time would be useful probably.

I've been googling and there appears to be other instances where mac users experienced sync failed notices...could it be because MIST wallet and geth are not optimized for mac?
Pi Delport
@PiDelport
It could be something related to OS X's networking stack, I don't know.

@pinecrest515
hmmmm

@PiDelport
I doubt it's platform optimisation related.

@pinecrest515
is there another possible explanation that has not been explored?
Pi Delport
@PiDelport
Not that I can think of.

well, anyways, @pjdelport you've been very helpful and supportive, I really appreciate it! :) I am going to bang my head for a while....quite baffling.

@PiDelport
I hope you get it sorted out. :)
Try bumping the verbosity levels and see you if you can spot anything that looks out of place.

Ok! I also posted a similar question again on go-ethereum slack channel to see if there are any mac users out there
Actually, I am going to also attempt to download bitterness for Game of Thrones episode 1 tonight, to see if that gives any pointers on the issue :)

Good morning. I have a noob question. Is there any way for Solidity to restrict amount of value to be sent? For example in the token example,

function buy() returns (uint amount){
    amount = msg.value / buyPrice;                     // calculates the amount
    if (balanceOf[this] < amount) throw;               // checks if it has enough to sell
    balanceOf[msg.sender] += amount;                   // adds the amount to buyer's balance
    balanceOf[this] -= amount;                         // subtracts amount from seller's balance
    Transfer(this, msg.sender, amount);                // execute an event reflecting the change
    return amount;                                     // ends function and returns
}

buy() function is only checking the balance of the contract itself, but not limiting the amount of msg.value. Though I can control how much to send at Javascript level, are there any way to gurantee the amount you can send per transaction at contract level?

@alexvandesande
@makoto sure
`if (msg.value > maxValue) throw'

I'm thinking of writing a full-stack Ethereum development manual which covers Solidity in detail, web3.js, IPFS and general Dapp development with NodeJS. "Thinking In Solidity". Was there anyone thinking of something like this?

Hello E'body. I am starting Ethereum today. But not sure where to start from....
Sriram Kumar
@batteringram01
@tucool82 Start at go-ethereum wiki
really good place to start. i suggest you setup a simple private bc or connect to testnet and see how things work
great article
tucool82
@tucool82
Thanks Sriram.

@makoto
@Physes That's a great idea. I am hosting study group and there are some noobies joining every week but most of tutorials out there are quite out of date so such a tutorial will help us a lot

Is there a place in this conversation for people who are not developers?
I am interested in the commercial application of Ethereum as currency and contracts for a 21 million person virtual nation in the United States. The nation is comprised of Descendants of American Slaves. We want a complimentary currency that can achieve parity with the value of the US Dollar, Euro and Yuan within a short span of time.

Hey @oneofthefreds_twitter,
Probably the best place for that would be http://reddit.com/r/ethereum.

Can a stakeholder association own real world securities and money. Like dollars or shares in IBM?
can dollars and shares of IBM be transferable to tokens? I am not quite sure I understand this technology but it seem really interesting
It’s a company bridging the gap between real companies and blockchain dao's

Hello Ethereum :)!, my name is Leonel, I'm from Mexico and I'm really interested on using ethereum, I have read a few articles in ethereum.org but I just can't understand how the ether coin can be anything, I mean how I assure to other people that my token value is 2 bars of gold or some physical asset?
Alex Van de Sande
@alexvandesande
Hi @leodc
Ether value isn't related to real world assets, but you can use to create tokens and then it's up to you how you link the value of these tokens to the commodity prices.
If you're asking about where does the value of ether itself comes from, then it's an economic question and you are going into the deep rabbit hole of where value itself comes from
Pi Delport
@PiDelport
@leodc: If you issue tokens, they only have the value that your reputation gives them.
@leodc: So if you want to assure people that your tokens are backed by gold, then you have to provide enough proof to convince people that you actually own the gold, and that you're trustworthy enough for them to redeem their tokens for gold.
https://dgx.io/ is an example of a company that does this for real gold: you can look at how they do it.
They have regularly-scheduled independent audits by trusted financial auditors of all their physical gold, and so on.
There's a whole process to it: they do a lot of work to establish their trust.

Hello @alexvandesande and @pjdelport , ok i get it know, the token is the digital representation of the asset and the link between the token and their physical value is up to me. Thank you for the responses ! and sorry for my bad english :P!
Pi Delport
@PiDelport
Yup.
