How to quickly synchronize blockchain snapshot for SiaCoin wallet

Tags: , , , , , ,

Synchronizing wallet for the first time in blockchain technology can be a pain in the ass if it hasn’t got any Electrum version of wallet. Same problem is with SiaCoin, which can synchronize for daaaaayz. To evolve this, there’s a quick method.

2. Go to %APPDATA%\Sia-UI\sia\consensus\ and rename consensus.db to consensus.db.old

3. Download latest blockchain snap from here: https://consensus.siahub.info/consensus.db [8.3GB today @ 2018-01-10]

4. Move the file to the %APPDATA% (or Linux-like path)

5. Start SiaClient once again.

It will start doing *something* but it is not hanged. If you have an SSD drive (and you should!) it will take about 20minz. On HDD SATA-III drive it will take about 6 hourz.

This g00d workaround comes from rdit @ https://www.reddit.com/r/siacoin

Let’s say that you have to manage 60 Windows Servers with separate credentials, IP addresses, etc. It is heavy to open them one-by-one or even by using RDP Manager.

There’s one simple app+script: use RDP Plus from donkz.nl (VirusTotal free).

And use this little code to a simple *.bat file:

C:\to0lz\rdp.exe /v:server1 /Domain:mydomain /U:user /P:pazw0rd
C:\to0lz\rdp.exe /v:server2 /Domain:mydomain /U:user /P:pazw0rd
C:\to0lz\rdp.exe /v:server3 /Domain:mydomain /U:user /P:pazw0rd
C:\to0lz\rdp.exe /v:server4 /Domain:mydomain /U:user /P:pazw0rd


Voila!

First of all, you’ll don’t find this piece of sh1t in Add/Remove Programz in Control Panel so basically it must be manually deleted from teh Windows Registry. Type regedit in Search Box. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\ and search for string starting with 00005. All Offize products start with 0000X. Delete this and viola, now you can install your Office add-on/expl0it. REMEMBER! Plz backup your registry first before deleting this item.
