1  Other / Meta / Temporary Ban for Press Guideline Violators on: July 15, 2013, 12:44:05 AM
I believe I should be given the power to temporary ban people for 3 days for not following guideline, especially after not fixing their shit after I give a nasty reply and a nasty PM.

5  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-02-19 Using Silk Road on: February 19, 2013, 07:58:25 AM

A hacker news discussion on silk road. Everybody on Hacker News already knows about silkroad, though. It just so happens that hacker news want to talk about bitcoin today.

The article itself is a fairly old one from 2011, although it has been continuously updated since then.
6  Bitcoin / Project Development / Manga Readers(Silkroad for comics) feedback on: February 12, 2013, 07:01:46 AM
I have an idea for a silkroad version for Asian comics.

Bug reports and criticism are greatly appreciated. Feature requests are not.

I am poor at grammar and it will take me a while to get real good at writing paragraphs without making a single grammatical mistakes. So I appreciate grammar nazis.

Also, the reason why I won't execute the idea I proposed is that I wrote about the idea without being anonymous, making me an automatic suspect should the enterprise happens.

I propose we call anti-money laundering programs as anti-monetary liberty programs.

8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Cold Wallet Failure Mode on: September 11, 2012, 03:19:04 PM
Anybody worried about mtgox losing their money by one of its employee forgetting the password to its cold wallet? Or perhaps magicaltux got hit by a bus?
9  Other / Off-topic / Writing Feedback on: September 06, 2012, 02:30:58 AM
So, um, I been writing lot of random stuff on for a while. I still haven't really promote it to anyone for feedback.

The grammar is not top notch but I hope you find something of interest. Good or bad feedback, gimme! As long they're constructive, I'll take them into consideration. If you want to just criticize my grammar, that's fine.

Take note that those random stuff are just random stuff waiting to be developed into a complete essay or integrated into other piece of random stuff. Let me know what you find promising and what you find stupid.
10  Bitcoin / Project Development / Ransoming Business Model on: August 03, 2012, 06:05:12 AM
Hi, I been working on a business model idea for ransoming content, using as a prototype site.

How it works:

1. You hold new content and update for bitcoin organized as a "Ransom Bag". Then you count up the ransomed and determine the ransom price.

2. You wait until the donation amount reached the ransom price...OR new content/updates is added

3. If there's enough donation, the "Ransom Bag" is opened and now everybody get to enjoy it.

Also, my server do not use a bitcoind and hold any bitcoin. Instead, my web app use's JSON API to get an answer. This way, even if a hacker broke into my server, they can't steal any bitcoin as there is nothing to steal.

The only thing I need to worry about is somebody tampering with the bitcoin address. This is something I have not developed any countermeasure for.

RIght now, I don't have anything to ransom yet and the site is just a proof of concept.
11  Economy / Service Discussion / MtGox and 2 Factor Authentication on: July 13, 2012, 08:34:07 PM
Given that people are extremely lazy about account security I propose that mtgox requires mandatory 2 factor authentication for all accounts.

Also, stop withdrawing coins and dollars immediately! There should be a 24 hours notice for withdrawal. This give the chance for users to review and stop an action if they deem suspicious. (For users who crys for immediate gratification, force them to use 2 method for 2factor authentication at once, charge them a high fee for added risks, etc)

Also, 40K bitcoin withdrawal limit is incredibly dumb. It doesn't match up with 40K USD for a long time now.

If my security suggestions are dumb, feel free to say why. I am not a security expert but I am very interested in NOT REPEATING the bitcoinica fiasco or the mtgox fiasco or any other fiasco ever again.
12  Economy / Service Discussion / Operation Fabulous not actively developed? on: July 10, 2012, 12:57:23 PM
It seems that the new owners are too lazy to do anything with operationfabulous. They could at least hire a developer to update it and fix it up with new features or something. Also, they are not responsive to email. Some email I sent never get replied to.

Operation Fabulous is really a great service, and I hate to see it stagnate.  Cry

I would like to help improve their service, even if only I get paid very little.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / [ANN] Bitcoin Chrome Extension on: July 05, 2012, 02:17:27 PM

Pay bitcoin and see your total balance in the convenience of your browser! Bitcoind and initial configuration required.


Homepage is pretty undeveloped at the moment. Will update it with tutorial and how to use it.
==07/20/12 Release==

Popup.html now have link to a transaction page which list the last ten transaction from oldest to newest.
==07/13/12 Release==
0.0.4 is released. Some of the changes are:

*Add last transaction in the popup. Examples are: "Last receive: 0.3" and "Last spent: 1.0"
*Removed a whole file since it wasn't working anymore and wasn't impacting any functionality.
==07/06/12 Release==

0.0.3 is released. Some of the changes are:

*When your daemon is down or the options you input is incorrect, it will show a link to the option page within the popup.
*Further code cleanup

==Original Announcement==

After a few days of struggling, I finally got the extension working again. It only does really basic functionality like get balance and send bitcoin as I was only focused on getting it working again.


You will need bitcoind and a properly configured bitcoin.conf with its password and username. In addition, you will also need to configure the bitcoin extension to use said password and username to connect to the bitcoind. (I know this is a few steps too many) This extension needs testing and it is recommended that you do not keep more than a handful coins for use.


As far as development goes, I plan to update the extension at least every Friday with new features and bugfixes. It is also open source and I welcome contribution.

Github page:


If you like my extension, consider donating to 1MT6zn6r2QeCmXWk45c6dL6wmaCAL6ZrRU. My goal is 300 dollars worth of bitcoin. Right now, I have zero bitcoin worth zero dollars. I am 0% in reaching my goal. This will help pay for the rent.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Weekly: A List of Major Bitcoin Thefts, Scams, Hacks, and Losses on: June 21, 2012, 03:30:11 AM

Now that this article is published, I can officially say this:

Bitcoin Weekly is ALIVE! Its death have been greatly exaggerated.

Note that I am a terrible writer and there's possibly lot of grammar errors that still remain in the article. Let me know some of the mistake.

Lastly, future publication will not be free. It will be funded via crowdsourcing for each batch of new materials and updates.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Weekly will be coming back on: June 10, 2012, 08:11:33 PM will be coming back soon! I will start publishing essay and analysis. Right now, the site is now revamped with a more minimalist style using twitter bootstrap and the writing system is up and running. Unlike our competitor at, the content don't start halfway down the screen. There are no urgency to sign up on the emailing list, follow us buttons for the various social networks, people bragging about how many points they earn from the magazine, or any of that nonsense. We have a simple header with navigation list.....and the content(Random articles, comment section, ads, and the footer). Everything that is distracting is down at the bottom.

Crowdfunding will be the mainstay of bitcoinweekly business model as it used to be before. Essentially, bitcoinweekly will release new contents for a collective fee. You can contribute as much as you want and as little as you want, as long all the donations added up to what bitcoinweekly is looking for.

However, there are some issues: I don't have any money to hire writers/reviewers. Thus, I lack both manpower and writing expertise. For now, I have to do everything myself, unless some people are generous enough to assists in editorial reviews. Even more, I don't have any ideas on what to write about. If you have any ideas that you would want me to write about, let me know.
16  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcoin Weekly development thread on: June 10, 2012, 08:28:37 AM is refreshed with twitter bootstrap, now with more minimalism than ever before. Nonworking navigation links are also pruned. The comic section disappears.

Stay tuned for more tweaks and development.
17  Economy / Services / [Coder for hire] Ruby, Rails, Javascript/Coffeescript, Canvas + processing.js on: April 06, 2012, 02:26:07 AM
I am experienced in rails, ruby, javascript/coffeescript. I also can work with canvas. Knew some node.js.

Javascript and rails+ruby are my biggest strength.

I developed site like:, and demo/game-under-development like

I prefer a lot of small projects, over a few large projects. I will be happy to do cheap paid audit work so that you can judge if I am suitable.

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Help Crowdfund a game "The City" for March on: February 29, 2012, 11:12:04 PM
A plead for some BTC in exchange for development of a game:

Need the money to have a roof over my head, continue development, and stop my savings from bleeding to nothingness. Aiming for 300 dollars to continue development for the whole month of March. Hope to reach this goal by the end of March.

You can follow my progress and ask development related question, report bugs, and ask gameplay questions there:

Please ask questions about the future of the game, fundraising question, and so on here.

Stay tune for screenshots, videologs, and so on.
19  Bitcoin / Project Development / Mobile Site for Bitcoin on: February 16, 2012, 05:56:11 PM
I worked on a mobile site for my inititative, nobody asked for it) a little while ago but there's only so much I can do. Here is my work:
20  Bitcoin / Project Development / A Development Thread for a Game funded With Bitcoin on: February 12, 2012, 06:03:07 AM
Hey ho, you guys might remember me as the guy who did Bitcoin Weekly, or maybe not.

In any case, I am developing the game called "The City" for bitcoin. It is going to be an epic simulation of a colony of humanity in a huge dyson sphere. Think Dwarf Fortress, except it's cyperpunk and technologically heavy. It's going to deviate in several ways: efficient chain management system and little micromanagement, variable production process, and knowledge is  actually a resource.

If you want to know further about the game: visit

If you're interested in trying a demo despite the incompleteness and buggyness, you're welcome to try but it may break your computer. The link is on my project page which I mentioned last paragraph. Just don't expect fun yet.

Lately, productivity is very uneven. My motivation is not going to keep me going so I figured I need a crowd of people who watch the game development's progress and comment. That way, it'll keep me going even when I have low morale.

Lastly, this game is made possible through donation and is contingent on donation. I may ask for donation from time to time so that I am motivated to continue my work. My eventual goal is to be able to work on this game for a living.

If you have any questions, feedback, wishes, I welcome every comment.
