Additional general tips to stay safe when working with any coin:  
  1) Always install all wallets for coins on a standalone system or in a sandbox environment.
2) Always move coins to offline wallets (cold storage) and keep only a minimum in a hotfile. A Hotfile is the wallet.dat currently on your PC in the normal location ..\roaming\coinname\wallet.dat | ~/.coinname/wallet.dat. Offline or cold storage is when you copy your main wallet.dat with your coins in it to a USB stick/(s) and remove the wallet.dat from your PC. Offline or cold storage is also sending your coins to a paper wallet.
3) If you are uncomfortable with a Windows wallet then don't use a Windows wallet but compile and use a Linux wallet.

I just noticed that I have a lot of different addresses for receiving and that they seem to appear on their own from time to time.
I'm interested, why is it happening and how do you guys usually manage them?
4  Other / Beginners & Help / Can bitcoins be lost? on: June 24, 2011, 10:40:43 PM
Hi everyone. I have been thinking about BTC a lot lately and I've spotted an interesting problem.

Suppose, we have a not too bright newbie, who has started mining for bitcoin in a pool, had got something about 1-2 BTC and did not back up his wallet.
Now, suppose that something happens with said newbie's computer and his hdd gets damaged beyond repair. This leads to him losing his wallet and the bitcoins, as I understand.
The blame for loss is on the newbie, naturally, but this situation also is a problem for the whole bitcoin-community, because the bitcoins are not only lost for the newbie, but they are lost from the system as well. And as the system is programmed to have no more than 21 million bitcoins ever generated, active use of bitcoins will make situations like the one I described, inevitable and will mean, that the number of bitcoins will slowly decrease over time.
I would like to know, if there are some mistakes in my theory, and if no, is there a way to compensate for the loss of coins?
