I'm a WordPress developer and I know PHP, HTML and CSS. If you need a WordPress site customized or a WordPress plugin developed then I can do that for you. Some of the plugins I've made are listed here.

In addition to web development I am also proficient with Linux server management. If you need someone to manage your VPS or dedicated server, install, configure and optimize software then I'm your guy. I'm well versed with Apache optimization, installing Nginx and PHP and MySQL, securing SSH access, setting up a full bitcoin node, firewall configuration and so on.

So if you need someone to work on your WordPress site or manage your server please PM me and I'll see what I can do for you.

7  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcoin Address WordPress Plugin on: December 20, 2014, 10:33:18 AM

Reusing addresses is bad for privacy so I created a WordPress plugin that will give your users a unique address each time they want to send you bitcoin. The plugin also maintains an address log so you can see which addresses were handed out and when.

The addresses are all generated deterministically from an electrum wallet master public key. Full instructions and download link are give here:

11  Other / Bitcoin Wiki / SSL cert: Untrusted connection on: April 14, 2014, 03:13:18 AM
So the wiki's SSL cert is throwing these errors. Can TPTB please look into it?
12  Bitcoin / Electrum / Electrum and openssl hearbeat bug on: April 08, 2014, 08:40:19 PM
So I imagine some of you have already heard about this new bug in openssl that allows you to extract the server's private key remotely:

I imagine this affects quite a few electrum servers. Their SSL private keys may be compromised and anyone can impersonate them. That is a problem but not a big one because no one expects to trust these servers anyway.

But I understand this bug also allows a malicious server to read the client's memory. By default when you run electrum you connect to a random server via SSL. If you are using Linux on your desktop, running a vulnerable version of openSSL and connecting to a malicious Electrum server could this exploit be used to read your electrum seed or addresses' private keys?
13  Other / Meta / [Solved] Link to last page of topic on: February 23, 2014, 02:21:14 PM
Is there a way to create a link to the last page of a topic that always works regardless of how many pages there are in the topic? Some topics are pretty large and get new posts all the time. I would like to be able to bookmark them such that I always end up on the last page where the latest posts are.

I don't want to configure my profile to show the latest posts first. Tried that and didn't like it.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / ASUS P8H61-M LX R2.0 GPU support on: February 14, 2014, 07:45:05 PM

This mobo has 4 PCI-E slots of various speeds. Do you think it will support 4 GPUs with risers? Or will I be limited to using just 3 slots simultaneously?

15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Live CD entropy on: February 03, 2014, 10:41:11 AM
Does a typical Linux live CD distro have enough entropy to generate a secure bitcoin private key? Is this something we should worry about?
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / How much blockchain required for raw transactions? on: November 12, 2013, 02:28:12 PM
I want to use bitcoind for one very specific purpose: create and sign raw transactions where I specify all the inputs, outputs and private keys for signing. I thought I could do this without downloading the blockchain since I was explicitly specifying the inputs. But it doesn't work. So how much of the chain is required to be able to do this?

17  Economy / Service Discussion / Bitcoin websites too dependent on cloudflare on: September 19, 2013, 09:01:42 AM
My server was having problems accessing the APIs of various bitcoin related sites. It turned out it was because of a problem with cloudflare in the new york area:

Bitcoin websites are way too dependent on cloudflare. Almost all of the major sites are using it:

For a currency that aims to be decentralized this is way too much centralization.

What do you guys think?
18  Economy / Trading Discussion / bitstamp mtgox spread plummets. on: August 21, 2013, 07:28:32 PM
So the spread between gox and bitstamp has plummeted. It was 20% at one point and now is ~10%

Bitstamp: 112.02
Gox: 123.64

So anyone know what is the reason behind this sudden change? Has there been some news?
19  Bitcoin / Electrum / Updating Electrum on Linux on: August 16, 2013, 04:24:11 PM

This is how I update electrum on Linux:

1. Open Konsole/terminal app and login as root

2. Do a "pip uninstall electrum"

3. Download the latest tar ball with wget and do an md5sum to verify it.

4. Install the new electrum version with a "pip install"

Is this the best way to go about it? Can I omit the uninstall step and just install the new version over the old one?

BTW great program electrum. Kudos to Thomas and the other developers  Smiley
20  Economy / Service Discussion / not resolving longer firstbits on: August 11, 2013, 06:06:57 AM seems to be the only site that offers to resolve firstbit addresses. So it is a big deal when they suddenly stop resolving longer firstbit addresses. These are not vanity addresses. I just need them to resolve via their API. For example, my profile address:


If you search for 1CYNQB it doesn't work.

OTOH some longer firstbits do work like 1hiccupped . So anyone know what is going on? Are only vanity first bits resolving?
