42  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Offline blockexplorer for Windows XP? on: April 17, 2011, 04:59:01 AM
I know it's a bit specific, but I was wondering if anyone has created a 'blockexplorer' program for Windows that can be run while offline? (Just point it at your bitcoin data directory).

If not, I will start a bounty for one as I'd find it mighty handy. I'm currently using Win XP sp3.

43  Economy / Marketplace / S.O.S! Did you do a site scrape for me last week? on: April 11, 2011, 09:40:29 AM
Did I ask you to scrape a site for me last week via Skype?


Last week I posted an ad for developers and met around 5 or 6 new people who each started working on different projects for me.

THEN, my hard drive failed and I lost access to my Skype ID and lost these new Skype contacts.

One of these people (sorry can't remember which of you it was), was asked to do a site scrape, to pull down certain files off a certain site.

If that was YOU please get in touch again via PM as I have lost my old Skype ID, thanks.
44  Economy / Marketplace / BitLotto May 4th Syndicate (Unofficial) on: April 10, 2011, 06:32:08 PM
I am starting a syndicate for the May 4th BitLotto draw, open to anyone who wants to join.

To join, send ANY amount (>=0.01) to:
(As with direct BitLotto entries, you must use your own wallet, NOT a web-based wallet like

Pros and cons of joining a syndicate vs playing BitLotto directly:

Direct BitLotto play:

  • If you win, you win the whole jackpot
  • Greater transparency
  • Must play in multiples of 1 BTC (Cannot play with 0.99 btc or less, and multiple entries requires multiple transactions)
  • Smaller chance of winning


  • Greater chance of winning something
  • More flexible payment option (Deposit any amount >= 0.01, in just one transaction if you wish)
  • Need to trust a 3rd-party (me)
  • Need to share winnings with other syndicate members

As the manager of this syndicate, I agree:

  • To use all funds collected by May 1st* to purchase tickets in the May 4th BitLotto draw.
  • To pay any winnings to syndicate members in direct proportion to their syndicate deposits within 48 hours of receiving the winnings.

*I'm suggesting a 3-day buffer to make sure all entries are in before the draw.

  • I am not the owner of BitLotto or affiliated with BitLotto in any way. By joining this syndicate you are putting your trust in a 3rd-party.
  • I am not making any profit out of this, just doing it because noone else has yet as far as I can tell, and I passionately want the Bitcoin community to explore any and every possible use of the currency that we can think of!
45  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / do new installs automatically generate 100 addresses? on: April 06, 2011, 12:46:50 PM

I backed up my wallet about 1-2 weeks ago, but since then I have received a rather large amount, and wallet.dat just disappeared today with a hard drive failure.

What I'm wondering is, if the default client generates 100 addresses, then the address that received the large amount should be backed up already, correct? Even though it received the money after the backup.

Thanks... you never know what minute of the day your hard drive is going to fail Smiley
46  Economy / Marketplace / [20 BTC] Logo design [CLOSED] on: April 05, 2011, 12:12:22 PM
Looking for logo designs for:

Squeak Pay (or SqueakPay; Whichever looks better)

The logo should incorporate an original cute-looking mouse.

Example 1:
Example 2:

The logo should be either entirely vector-based, or clear at very high resolution (1000 x 1000).

If 20 btc is too cheap for you, please include a higher bid in your reply.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: The mouse should have less detail than the above two examples... it should be more simplified to suit a logo.

Just wondering if anyone else is having an issue with Mt Gox at the moment.
48  Economy / Gambling / [1 BTC] Bitcoin Doubler, plus referral program. on: April 04, 2011, 06:25:06 PM
My first attempt at a site with direct transaction handling (without using or similar).

A simple doubler for 1 btc, pays out 2 btc to the next person in line:

Refer people to the site and earn 0.20 btc for every entry they pay for.

Please leave feedback for me as I also did this as an academic excercise.


Edit: I just deleted my 2 test entries from the top, so real members that aren't me will start getting paid.
The Active entries counter relies on confirmations, so those of you (THANKS BY THE WAY) that have paid for entries, they are still on 0 conf at the moment.

51  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Bitcoin account format spec? on: March 30, 2011, 03:28:36 PM
Sorry I couldn't find this anywhere...

Are there any specific rules about how you can name an account? eg. Does it have to be alphanumeric, can it contain spaces, etc... how long can it be?

This API Calls List doesn't mention anything about it:

Also the 'Full list' on that page doesn't include the listaccounts() function... is that function new or is this just an oversight?

52  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / 1 BTC for 'fake' bitcoin signage! [OFFER EXPIRED] on: March 30, 2011, 09:15:47 AM

(Sorry, it's fake, but it's nice to dream!)

Anyone else care to have a shot? I'd love to see someone else's attempt at realism in this manner. Put it anywhere... t-shirts, tattoos, bus or bus-shelter advertising, as long as it looks quite real! I'll pay 1 btc for each good one... (Still don't have many to give out yet!)

54  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Bitcoin "mailto" equivalent.... payto? on: March 29, 2011, 01:52:23 PM
Sorry, I'm relatively new and excited, and the ideas are flowing...  Cheesy

I was thinking about how a lot of people have their bitcoin address posted on the web as a piece of text and it made me think of the "mailto" links that are available in HTML.

<a href="">Email me!</a>

Imagine if we could get Chrome (go Google!) or other browsers to accept the following as a valid link and launch your bitcoin client:

<a href="payto:12HbhjqzxNNLjTVbEPkhzcPHLzXdN9sD8b?amount=0.01">Pay me!</a>

(Then of course you should hit a confirm button once your client presents the send window).

What would be involved in making this happen?
55  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin ATM (Automatic Teller Machine), with USB slot. on: March 29, 2011, 01:31:00 PM
Tell me to shut up if someone already thought of this, but I just suddenly had an idea.

What if there was an ATM that looked a bit like regular ATMs but instead of a card slot it has a USB port for people to load a wallet.dat.

The interface could tell you your balance, and you could make a cash withdrawal by sending BTC from your wallet to the wallet of the ATM owner, then it spits out the equivalent fiat.

Just thought of this 2 minutes ago, so I'm sure there are many details to consider... would be fun to discuss anyway Smiley

(I know you might have to trust the ATM operator not to copy and steal your entire wallet contents while it's loaded).
56  Economy / Marketplace / BTC/ZAR Exchange? (Bitcoin/South African Rand) on: March 29, 2011, 05:12:36 AM
Does anybody know of somewhere or someone to exchange ZAR (cash, bank transfer, etc.) for BTC?

Any South Africans here want to cash out their BTC holdings?
57  Other / Politics & Society / "Anarchists" rioting in London on: March 27, 2011, 12:08:20 PM
Not sure if this is being discussed yet, but just posting my thoughts on the 'anarchist' label and how I think most people would associate it with the chaotic bullshit they see happening in London today.

If I really had to choose an exact label for myself, and I could only choose one, I might call myself a 'market anarchist', however I absolutely don't want to be associated with people spray-painting buildings with the 'A' symbol or smashing out the windows of successful and 'posh' businesses.

It's funny, I grew up actually thinking the word 'anarchy' meant 'chaos' and it was only just recently I realised how wrong that definition is, and that the mistake probably came from mainstream TV media, where those kind of rioters are just labelled 'anarchists' in general.
