How to get free bitcoins online

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

This is a quick tutorial that shows several ways to get completely free bitcoins online. These bitcoins will not make you rich, it’s just enough to get you started in the world of bitcoin. This tutorial assumes you already have a wallet setup with an address to receive bitcoins at. If you need a wallet, a good online one you can access from any computer, and your android phone is Blockchain.info or if you prefer an offline one, I personally use

Get bitcoins for visiting websites. They usually pay out in an hour or so, but I have noticed it taking a bit longer lately so be patient. This is probably the second best method to get free bitcoins after the URL shortner I’ve described below. Bit Visitor

You can also earn bitcoins by having people click on URL’s you shorten, it just takes them to an ad before it brings them to the site it was linking to, works very well: URL Shortner

Get bitcoins for putting your address in every day. This one is included in Coin Reaper, but can sometimes does not load, so I’d try it out here first: Daily Bitcoins

Coin Reaper is the best method for getting a lot of small amounts of bitcoins, they can really add up eventually, especially with how bitcoins are worth more and more every day. It goes through all the bitcoin faucet like sites: Coin Reaper

You can also earn bitcoins by having people click on URL’s you shorten, it just takes them to an ad before it brings them to the site it was linking to, works very well: Bitcoin URL Shortner but if you would rather earn money instead of bitcoins, you can use this one instead: Cash URL shortener

I now accept donations through Bitcoins! If you don’t know what those are, you can get more information about them at Bitcoin.org. My average donations are usually less than .001 BTC, but any amount helps me to make more tutorial videos, so any amount is gladly accepted.

How do to CPU bitcoin mining on Windows using rpcminer

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars


How to mine Bitcoins using your CPU (processor) on Windows (This works on all versions of windows, XP, Vista, 7, 8) using rpcminer. You can also use guiminer or bitmoose or a few other programs, but I have found the CPU mining on those to be unusually difficult sometimes, rpcminer is the only one that consistently works. For GPU mining, I would suggest guiminer. Bitcoin mining can be profitable, but not always, so make sure you know what you’re getting into. Bitcoin mining is not just priniting free money, there is much more to it then that, so make sure to factor in electricity costs, hardware costs, hardware wear and tear, and anything else, the chart I link to below will help you.

The steps are simple, and can all be packaged into a .bat file to start automatically if desired.

1. Get a Bitcoin wallet, and use that address to setup an account at a mining pool. I use slush personally and have had good luck (Slush’s Pool) but any pool can be used.

2. Download rpcminer. This can be downloaded from Here.

3. Follow the steps in the video to start rpcminer. Basically it must be started from the command line, and passed the arguments for pool address, username, password, and number of CPU threads. The commands that have to be run from the directory where rpcminer is (in windows vista/7/8 will probably be C:\users\username\downloads\bitcoin-rpcminer-20110227-win32bin): rpcminer-cpu.exe -url=http://api.bitcoin.cz:8332 -user=pascal11110.guest -password=guest -threads=4 -workrefreshms=4000. With this the api.bitcoin.cz will have to be replaced with the address for your mining pool, and user and password will have to be replaced with the username and password from you pool. You can run it with this exact code to try it out, it will just mine under my account.

4. If you want to run this automatically on startup of your computer, or want to be able to run it with just a double click, then create a blank text file. Change the extension of the file from .txt to .bat, then add the same code from earlier in (rpcminer-cpu.exe -url=http://api.bitcoin.cz:8332 -user=pascal11110.guest -password=guest -threads=4 -workrefreshms=4000). If you put the .bat file in the same directory as the rpcminer then you can leave it like that, but if you want to put it in the startup folder or run it as administrator you will have to change it to be C:\users\username\downloads\bitcoin-rpcminer-20110227-win32bin/rpcminer-cpu.exe -url=http://api.bitcoin.cz:8332 -user=pascal11110.guest -password=guest -threads=4 -workrefreshms=4000. Again the correct info will have to be put in for the path, address, user, and password.

That should be it! Any questions leave a question on my youtube page or at the bottom of the page here. Here’s the link to the youtube video page: Youtube Page

The client I use as my Bitcoin wallet is Bitcoin qt, which can be downloaded here: Bitcoin.org

You can also earn bitcoins by having people click on URL’s you shorten, it just takes them to an ad before it brings them to the site it was linking to, works very well: Bitcoin URL Shortner but if you would rather earn money instead of bitcoins, you can use this one instead: Cash URL shortener

And if you want to learn more about bitcoin in general, I highly suggest reddit’s bitcoin subreddit: www.reddit.com/r/bitcoin

How to Permanantly Disable Sticky Keys in Windows (7, 8, XP, Vista, etc.)

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

Stickey Keys is a surprisingly annoying feature of the Windows operating system (Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 8) that pops up asking if you want to turn it on whenever you hit the shift key five times in a row. This can be frustrating in a few situations, such as crouching and sneaking in minecraft (severaly limiting your teabagging?), and the same for Battlefield 3, and a lot of other games. This will show you how to turn off sticky keys in any version of Windows (including Windows 8, you just have to get there a little differently). Just skip to the sections that show how to do it on your operating system, but it’s close enough between them that you can figure it out from the directions for any one.

Step 1: Click on the start menu, and open up the control panel. In Windows XP, Vista, and 7 this can be done byjust clicking on the option on the side of the start menu for control panel. Also, in Windows XP you can click the start menu, then run, type control, and then hit enter. In Windows 8, move your mouse to the top right corner of the screen, and then hit search when it pops up, and type control in the box that pops up. Control Panel should pop up, then click on that option.

Step 2: Choose the option at the top right of the control panel where it says “View by:” and choose “Large icons”.

Choose the option by View By for Large Icons

Step 3: Choose the option for “Ease of Access Center”, it might also be called Accesibility options on older versions of Windows (the list is in alphabetical order). The video shows how to do this one Windows 7 and XP, so if you’re having trouble finding the right options, just watch the video.

Step 4: Choose the option that says “Make the keyboard easier to use”

Chose the option for Make the Keybaord Easier to Use

Step 5: Click the option for “Set up Sticky Keys”

Choose the option for Set up Sticky Keys

Step 6: Unclick the check box for “Turn on Sticky Keys when SHIFT is pressed five times” This will make it so that you can press shift as many times as you want without Sitcky Keys popping up.

Uncheck the checkbox for Turn on Sticky Keys when the SHIFT key is pressed 5 times
