1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Ghost exchanges on: February 02, 2012, 10:41:43 PM
Am I the only one getting zero response when e-mailing the various exchanges; are they haunted or something?
Specifically talking about
- Bitcoinica (support inquiry sent 11 days ago, still no answer after several bump e-mails)
- TradeHill (support inquiry sent 21 days ago, still no answer after several bump e-mails)

I truly don't get why serious businesses treat their customers like dirt.

What are people's experience with the MtGox support?

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Is it safe to quit client immediately after "coins sent"? on: June 28, 2011, 05:49:25 PM
Does the "coins sent" message in the official client mean that the transaction has actually been successfully broadcasted to the network and thus that the client is safe to shut down immediately afterwards? The reason I'm asking is because I sent a coin recently, got the dialog box confirmation, and shut down the client pretty hasty, but the coin is still not registered with the receiving address (not even a 0/unconfirmed).

Since blocks are found on average every 10 minutes, how can bitcoins be used to pay for in-store items and services when there's no time to lean back while waiting for a confirmation? Imagine sitting in the drive-thru line etc.

Off the top of my head:
- bit bills
- some trusted third party company (uhm, i.e. bank) issuing btc debit cards which can guarantee that the customer holds the purchase amount

Other suggestions, or maybe I have overlooked something fundamental?
