1  Economy / Lending / Loaned 50 BTC to Daniel Holt of last April on: September 10, 2012, 01:30:53 PM
Last April, I made a loan to Daniel Holt (his BitcoinTalk username is Daniel, but he's been inactive here since last July) of the Rain Droplet project ( of 50 BTC. I had recorded the loan in Rain Droplet.

This is the transaction:

I recently requested he repay his loan to me. But his website is offline and his email address doesn't appear to exist anymore.

Any ideas where he could be?

3  Economy / Marketplace / Will write for BTC on: March 27, 2011, 03:02:46 AM
I will write anything you want for Bitcoins. Essays, poetry, short stories, you name it. I can only write in English, though. Tongue

Minimum is 1 BTC.

PM if you're interested.
4  Economy / Marketplace / My personal website - look and like! on: March 23, 2011, 09:02:53 PM

This is where I post my creative work.

All of the stuff that I've created and posted there is released into the public domain, so you can use it in what ever way you want.
(Check the copyright for stuff that I haven't authored, though. I post stuff from other people there (with appropriate permission, of course.))

If you like it, you can drop me some coins if you wish to.

If you don't like it, that's okay also.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Lost all my Bitcoins? on: July 14, 2010, 10:35:17 PM
I wanted to test Bitcoin's double-spending protection, so I copied the wallet.dat file to another folder. I had 1.21 BTC as my balance, and I donated 0.01 BTC, and then exited the program. I then moved the copy of the wallet.dat file back to Bitcoin's AppData folder, and started Bitcoin.

When it started, it showed 1.21 BTC as my balance, but a second later, it became 0.00.

Is this there on purpose to punish people who attempt double-spending, or is it a bug?

(All my transactions are present in the window. My balance is at 0.00 though.)

If I send someone a coin before they have downloaded all the blocks, will that coin be lost?
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / No blocks downloaded - MS Security Essentials users please read on: July 13, 2010, 04:57:43 PM
I got my friend to download and try Bitcoin out. I sent him one coin, but he hasn't received it. For some reason, his client isn't downloading any blocks. He turned on "Generate Coins" the minute he started the program for the first time. His speeds were in the 1400-1600 khash/s range, and he had 3 blocks. He generated 50 coins which will mature in another 100 blocks or so. He has around 40 connections.

To my knowledge, his coins will be invalid because none of the other nodes will accept his blocks. And, since he hasn't downloaded any blocks, he won't receive the one Bitcoin I sent him.

He uses Microsoft Security Essentials, but has added Bitcoin to its unblock list. He does have port 8333 open, but has a Linux network firewall. (He doesn't have the rights to access the firewall.)

What could be the problem?
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Average transaction time? on: July 13, 2010, 02:53:59 AM
What is the average transaction time? I sent my friend one Bitcoin a few hours ago, and at the time of this posting, he still hasn't received it.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Does port 8333 have to be opened? on: July 12, 2010, 12:48:26 AM
I was running the "Generate Coins" feature of Bitcoin. I have not opened up port 8333. It says it has 8 connections, and the number of blocks just keeps going up and up. (It's over 50,000). It hasn't generated any coins yet.

Is it working properly, or do I have to open up port 8333?
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Pros and cons of using new Bitcoin addresses for each transaction? on: July 11, 2010, 11:27:25 PM
Can someone please give me a list of the pros and cons of using new Bitcoin addresses for each transaction? It seems very inconvenient to use a new address each time.
