    I had set up POS and everything was working good a few weeks ago. I still monitor it every day to see how's it going. When I noticed a low ticket price and looked if it bought tickets, it hadn't. I restarted dcrticketbuyer, and then it bought the tickets. Same happened today(when the price was extremely low), when there were 22 blocks left. I noticed the price, I checked it and it hadn't bought any tickets. I then restarted dcrticketbuyer and it bought the tickets(because it had a good fee they became immature in notime).

    So any idea why it isn't automated and I have to refresh it for it to buy tickets?

    There was strange behaviour with previous versions.
    What version is yours ?
    Can you post / PM logs ?

    What platform and version are you on? I noticed in Windows that if you click on anything in the daemon console and highlight it seems to freeze the daemon, at least in PowerShell.

    Beyond that, if you're on Linux and anything ever freezes, please kill the process and provide us the trace output with:
    Code:
    killall -SIGABRT dcrticketbuyer
    That'll help us debug any lockups or freezes.

    I am using windows, and v0.1.6. I just noticed that v.0.2.0 was released. Was there a way to easily upgrade using dcrinstall, I remember reading something about that.

    You should be simply able to run dcrinstall and it will overwrite the binaries.
