bitcoin core – Brother died and I am sole survivor..just found out he has a wallet. How do I go about getting his bit coins I have no info

I have no info..

Without information, you cannot get control of any Bitcoin your brother possessed.

You need some details of his wallet or of his account with a Bitcoin exchange.

How do I retreive

If he looked after his own money in a Bitcoin wallet on a computer or phone, you need to be able to log in to that device and run the wallet program and enter any password he set on the wallet. He may have kept a note of his wallet’s “private key” or its 12, 18 or 24-word “recovery phrase” written down somewhere safe. E.g. on paper or stamped metal in a safe. If so, you can use this information on a different computer to create a new wallet that controls the same money.

If he had an account with a business that looked after his money for him, you’ll need to find out the name of that business and his login details. It is possible you would find some details in his old email messages.

I have death certificate.

That might be of use if his money was in an exchange and you know his account name but not his account password. You or the executor of his estate would need to contact the exchange directly about this.


You will be contacted by people offering to help you. 99% of these will be scammers intending to trick you into trusting them with any details you find, or who will trick you into paying invented recovery fees but who will never give you access to your brother’s money. Be very very careful.

Where to get OHLC data for Bitcoin from all active exchanges now that cryptodatadownload.com has died?

Recently, I found what was a gold mine of data: https://www.cryptodatadownload.com/data/

Sadly, since the last 10 days, since 2020-11-20, the data has stopped updating. There is no mention of this on their website and they don’t respond to e-mails. I’m left guessing as to whether it will ever resume. Typical.

For example, if you download the “BTC/USD [Daily]” CSV file on https://www.cryptodatadownload.com/data/bitstamp/ , and look inside it, you will see that the data stopped 10 days ago. It used to update every day.

The last line was:

1605830400.0,2020-11-20,BTCUSD,17825.47,18240,17755.81,18125.99,2103.36,37892614.86

I searched the Internet and asked around for ages to find that data source. All the others that I’ve ever found have been garbage or want money from me. I don’t have money to pay. I just want to keep track of the Bitcoin “OHLC” prices for each day for each active Bitcoin exchange.

This seems like the kind of information that multiple “crypto geeks” would happily provide as a public service. After all, I’m not needing per-minute or even per-hour data, but only per-day.

dnd 5e – Does Locate Creature work on a creature who died and became undead?

No, but ask your DM.

This isn’t a hard no. This is a “I would rule no, but your DM may rule otherwise.”

The reason I say no is in the spell description of locate creature:

If the creature you described or named is in a different form, such as being under the effects of a polymorph spell, this spell doesn’t locate the creature.

I would rule that becoming undead, which changes the creature type, constitutes being in a different form. You would have to have seen the undead form of the creature to be able to locate it.

But, this isn’t super clear, that is, the description gives an example of what constitutes “different form”, but not a definition. So there is room for a DM to rule the other way.

web – Why has the Internet died? Is there some sort of new Internet that I’ve missed?

I send e-mails to mailing lists. No reply for weeks upon weeks. Dead.

I ask questions on Stack Exchange. No replies. Ignored. Just trolls and toxic people left.

I left freenode because every room was a ghost town in the last few years.

Every search query results in irrelevant garbage and/or eternal reCAPTCHAs.

Fake sites, registration forms that don’t do anything, “phone verification”, “upload photo id to load page”, etc.

The “dark web” doesn’t seem to actually exist at all. I do have Tor browser installed but there are no .onions to visit either.

Nothing seems to work. Nothing (worthwhile) seems to be used at all.

I’ve looked all over for some sort of “new Usenet”, but there is no such thing. All those decentralized projects are minimal and have zero users, in perpetuity.

I feel like I’m going insane. What has happened? How can there be far less activity on the Internet today than it was 30 years ago? How is that logically possible?

I might as well be offline completely. I basically feel like I am.

dnd 5e – Can a druid of spores revive a zombie as a reaction if the humanoid died last turn?

There is a class feature for spores druids called Fungal infestation, and in the rules it is stated:

If a beast or humanoid that is Small or Medium dies within 10 feet of you, you can use your reaction to animate it, causing it to stand up immediately with 1 hit point. The creature uses the zombie statistics. It remains animate for 1 hour, after which time it collapses and dies.

So, if a bandit dies within 10 feet of a druid of spores, and the druid doesn’t revive him (already spent reaction on the turn or whatever) can he use the reaction to revive next turn?

My internet domain expired because the website owner died

I purchased a domain name that I was intending to use. I paid for its renewal twice. However, I just found out that the owner of the webspace (flockhosting.com) died – cancer – and he was apparently too sick to get around to renewing.

I try now to renew the domain through someone else, but I am repeatedly told that the domain name is taken. I think Chuck originally was sending the domains to someone else for renewal.

How long will it be before the domain expires, and then can be reused? The domain is mine.

Remember when Trump attacked Obama relentlessly during H1N1 and Ebola where only 12k died? Don’t you miss his leadership right about now?

Not even a little bit. I also remember Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS targets conservative organizations, NSA mass surveillance, Bowie Bergdahl swap, Secret Service scandal, DOJ seizes journalist records, Solyndra, The Iran deal, Uranium One, Clinton email scandal, AP wiretaps, Trump Tower wiretaps, FISAGATE and of course Obamacare.

Why weren’t there protests and riots over the death of Tony Timpa, who died in similar circumstances to George Floyd? ?

Well here’s the thing: those cops are still on the police force, and the prosecutor dropped the charges against them.  And this isn’t the only example of this kind of thing happening.

Daniel Shaver (another white guy) was approached by police in a Mesa hotel, and when the body cam footage of the encounter was released, in my opinion it was truly heartbreaking.  A young man, drunk and crying, being bellowed at by the police and given tasks that it likely would’ve been difficult for him to comply with if he were sober.  And when his pants began to slip off and he reached down to pull them up, he was shot dead.

Tony Timpa’s killing didn’t even result in a criminal trial, while Daniel Shaver’s killing resulted in a trial and saw the officer who shot him dead found Not Guilty.  Interesting how in both of these cases, not only did “white privilege” not protect these men, but it also wasn’t enough to have the officers involved in their deaths serving jail time.  It’s almost like “white privilege” is a monumental social con job, isn’t it?  

It will make the trial of the officer charged in the death of George Floyd rather interesting…because we can expect that if he’s found “not guilty,” or has his charges dismissed, the subsequent rioting will make this look spate of violence look tranquil in comparison.

Why are most democrats so scared to admit Hydroxychloroquine works? This lawmaker almost died and was saved by the medication?

People like you, and Trump, are ignoring what the FDA is saying:

“FDA is concerned that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are being used inappropriately to treat non-hospitalized patients for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) or to prevent that disease. We authorized their temporary use only in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 when clinical trials are not available, or participation is not feasible, through an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). These medicines have a number of side effects, including serious heart rhythm problems that can be life-threatening.

We have reviewed case reports in the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System database, the published medical literature, and the American Association of Poison Control Centers National Poison Data System concerning serious heart-related adverse events and death in patients with COVID-19 receiving hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, either alone or combined with azithromycin or other QT prolonging medicines. These adverse events included QT interval prolongation, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, and in some cases, death. We are continuing to investigate these safety risks in patients with COVID-19 and will communicate publicly when more information is available.”

What would you do if Trump died?

Truthfully, I would be relieved. Trump is a horrible man and an even worse leader.  Trump made a deal with the Devil and eventually, the Devil wants his due.  

The only good thing that has happened since Corona Trump’s virus is that there have not been any school shootings.
