Zeusminer not being recognized with BFGminer

I’m trying to run bfgminer on a Raspberry Pi but the zeusminer is not being recognized. When I run the command:

sudo bfgminer-5.1.0/bfgminer -S zeusminer:all -d? -D 

I get:

Here is my command to try and get bfgminer to run:

sudo bfgminer-5.1.0/bfgminer --scrypt -o <pool> -u <user>.<worker> -p <password> -S zeusminer:/dev/ttyUSB0 

I have tried running the -S flag with zeusminer:all, zeusminer:auto, and zeusminer:/dev/ttyUSB0.

Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Electrum: seed is 0 length . Lost seed

Its been months since Ive used my electrum wallet.

When I try and send coin I get an invalid password message.

Then when I go to my seed, I type in that same password and it takes me to the seed generator and says my seed is 0 length.

I see there was someone else with this same issue, he was just two characters off. If thats the case, I kind of know my password. What kind of brute force programs could I use to crack my password?

Thanks

Can I compose a transaction where I send zero to some outputs?

Perhaps this is useless for some analysis, but is it possible to send value zero to an output address?
My thinking is that by adding to the output address set in a tx we can make some analysis more difficult. (But then it just occurred to me that a smart analysis would simply remove an output of zero from consideration).
Nevertheless I’m still curious if value zero can be sent. (obviously this would be a manual transaction).
