1  Other / MultiBit / Updating to new version of Multibit correct procedure on: February 14, 2014, 01:01:12 AM
So I just realised I haven't actually updated my Multibit client on my PC in a while, whats the correct way to do this, can I just over-write the existing installation with the new installer, or should I uninstall the old one first?

Also will installing new version kill my existing wallet in it and would have to be re-instated via backup keys?

Probably best I wait till this whole TX-ID thing is sorted before updating I guess...
2  Other / Beginners & Help / MultiBit client, how to add transaction fee on: November 18, 2013, 04:42:33 PM
Is it possible to add a transaction fee when sending Bitcoin out of the MultiBit client?, I can't see a box for it anywhere?.  

*edit* Nevermind its added automatically depending on transaction size in bytes, still I was kinda hoping for a manual control over this aspect, no worries.
3  Economy / Service Discussion / Is Blockchains 'quick send' option flawed? on: November 13, 2013, 10:56:03 PM
Is Blockchains Quick Send option inherently flawed?

I just made a transfer using it and then immediately regretted it as its still unconfirmed and the confirmation time & queue position keeps increasing. It says it made it using a 0 transfer fee. I had perhaps stupidly assumed quick send meant Blockchain gave the appropriate nominal fee amount to the transfer on your behalf, I didn't realise quick send actually meant no transfer fee!.

But what is the point of quick send at all if it means the chances of sending coins successfully is slim to none?

What I don't also get is, in Blockchains account settings there's an option to set the default fee, either Frugal, Normal, or Generous. It was set to normal.  I had assumed this specifically refers to the Quick Send option (as custom send you specify the fee amount yourself),  so why was my transfer of 0.01BTC done with no transaction fee attached?.

4  Other / Beginners & Help / Has Coinbox been hacked now as well or just server downtime? on: November 07, 2013, 06:26:04 PM
Those of us noobs that use free bitcoin faucets will obviously know about the disaster of late, but now coinbox seems to have gone down as well, the website that collects tiny fractions of bitcoins from other faucets to send to normal bitcoin address in a bigger lump.

I'm hoping its just some server down issue and not another hack attempt.
