Good point. And then people just extract the codes at random.

@phalexo
You come in, pull a vote at random and vote.
But they all have to be pre-stored so the person can check the vote after the fact on line.

@emanuele3d
So, thinking from a voter perspective: you get an envelope from a box with a QR code. You then go home and the QR code leads you to... a smart contract in which you can choose your vote? The smart contract then sends the token to the account corresponding to your choice? Did I get the workflow right?

@phalexo
Or you vote on the spot. Keep the QR code card, and check at home if your vote was cast correctly by looking up the blockchain transaction.

@emanuele3d
Certainly you have given me some interesting food for thought.

Is geth stuck?
manu3d
@emanuele3d
It continues to output "Imported new state entries" type of line. But I haven't seen a block-related type of line since the one I mentioned earlier.
Is that not normal?
phalexo
@phalexo
,743 block here
manu3d
@emanuele3d
The last one for me still seems to be ,561.

I wonder where NTP gets its time. Whether it is from NIST.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
There must be a config file somewhere? /etc?
phalexo
@phalexo
What about locale, is that set correctly?
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Hmmmm.... it depends on the definition of "correctly".
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Oh, I know how to do that and I just re-synced the clock just in case. I'm not seeing any different behaviour. And I have three devices in sight that are all telling me the time on my system is correct.
phalexo
@phalexo
Ok.
It is often the problem.
Can you restart geth with a small cache? I wonder if Windows 7 is not flushing buffers.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
How small is small for you? =)
phalexo
@phalexo
What it would allow as a valid argument.
Is it a landline by the way or wireless?
manu3d
@emanuele3d
You mean how my computer is connected to the LAN or how my LAN is connected to the web?
phalexo
@phalexo
Either. I wonder if the stuff gets buffered and the blockchain runs away.
Your geth node.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
The laptop I'm running geth from is connected via WiFi - Win7 tells me at 144 Mbps. I then have about 100 Mbps bandwidth (fiber) to my ISP.
phalexo
@phalexo
The geth node is on your laptop?
manu3d
@emanuele3d

I restarted geth with the command line:

geth --fast --cache 1 --ipcpath C:/temp/gethTmp/geth.ipc

I do not see much improvement. Seems to have gotten a few blocks initially but we are back at "Imported new state entries".

Why would it be strange for a geth node to be on my laptop?

phalexo
@phalexo
It is not strange, just considering different possible problems.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
ah, ok. yes, I confirm it is on my laptop.
phalexo
@phalexo
Can you restart without --fast flag?
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Ok.
What's your last block?
I have ,807.
phalexo
@phalexo
809
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Does that mean I'm nearly synced?
phalexo
@phalexo
So it appears.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Yay!
phalexo
@phalexo
810
812
814
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Still at 807 here. Only 3 "Imported new state entries" lines after that. Has been hanging for about a minute now.
Firing up mist, to see what it says...
phalexo
@phalexo
Your ISP is fiber, right?
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Yes.
More "Imported new state entries" lines. So, it is not completely stalled, it's just not getting any new blocks it seems.
Last line:
INFO [08-30|00:34:32] Imported new state entries count=384 flushed=0 elapsed=1m41.774s processed=1870 pending=24197 retry=244 duplicate=0 unexpected=97
