Firing up mist, to see what it says...

@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:

How many peers do you have?
13 on my end.

mist said 6 peers before it switched to the "Downloading..." string. I don't know how to see the peers in geth... should I attach another geth in a different ... ok, I'll follow your instructions...

Not much change other than the look and a broken icon in the mist GUI. In the console the only somewhat concerning outputs are:

@phalexo
You didn't have node running, you killed geth. That is normal.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Ok.
Mist seemingly hanging. Block ,654 of ,835.
phalexo
@phalexo
851 here.
Mist/Etherwallet store application data. Wonder if that is messed up.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Should I reinstall you think?
phalexo
@phalexo
Before you do that, you need to preserve chaindata folder and keystore folder.
If you have any ether associated with the account you may have set up you should back up accounts and make copies of UTC* keyfiles.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Nah. It's still empty. I was counting to do stuff on the test nets before I get any ether.
phalexo
@phalexo
Ok, then you should move chaindata folder somewhere else before cleaning up and reinstalling.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
I'm trying to do just that but it says a program is using it. Which is peculiar because I killed all geths and mists...
phalexo
@phalexo
Windows make a mess of this. There are special steps one has to follow to get permissions.
I've to go, get something to eat. It's not an emergency at the moment?
manu3d
@emanuele3d

I think I'll call it a day (1am here), and shut down the computer, hoping when I restart it tomorrow it will allow me to save that data somewhere else.

Thank you very much for your support over the past couple of hours. I'll let you know if the reinstall improved the situation.

phalexo
@phalexo
Ok, perfect.
manu3d
@emanuele3d
Definitely not an emergency. I'm just exploring the Ethereum dimension for curiosity.
Have a good day! And buon appetito!

Is there a way of assigning a token symbol and name within a contract so that new users will automatically have it assigned once they recieve the tokens?
Brooks Boyd
@MidnightLightning
If you follow the ERC20 standard, it has a name and symbol that client applications know to look for to draw those UI elements

@eddie2024
@MidnightLightning Thanks! :)

mapping (address => mapping (address => uint256)) public allowance........what does this line of code mean?
Thanks GUYS!!!
vishwas96
@vishwas96
Anyone tell me one thing , I want to create a coin for commercial purpose . There are three pages in the tutorial . If I implement all three of them, what other things I need to do in order to create a whole new coin like (lite coin or ether )
vishwas96
@vishwas96
Will this be sufficient to create the full network . I mean do I need to do something else before getting it commercial
ashishjiet
@ashishjiet
Hello everyone
can anyone tell me how to buy etherum with usd
any contract is available to buy ETH ??
Brooks Boyd
@MidnightLightning
@Jpeng0108 It's a mapping that contains another mapping in each of it's slots (nested map)
@vishwas96 Yes, that's all that's needed. Ethereum is the network under it, so you don't need to build that part
@ashishjiet you can buy ETH with USD via exchanges: Coinbase, Kraken, etc.
vishwas96
@vishwas96
@MidnightLightning Thankyou for answering. Like in bitcoin, a coin is generated when someone does the mining. How will i do that is it given in the tutorials?
Brooks Boyd
@MidnightLightning
If you want your token/coin to be mined as a separate entity, yes you'd need to implement the mining logic. Or, because Ether is already a mined currency available to all smart contracts on Ethereum, you can use that infrastructure and tell your users to mine/acquire Ether, and then your coin/token only needs to offer a means to trade Ether for some quantity of your token.
vishwas96
@vishwas96
Ok thank you very much .Really appreciate your help
I will work on my own mining logic.

Hello, I am new to the Ether, can anyone help me out to get started

@MidnightLightning
@seidelion https://www.ethereum.org/ is a good place to start, which has descriptions and tutorials to work on.
