1  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / 50ⓑ to the first person to write this Python patch on: April 23, 2012, 11:09:14 PM
I contribute to an open source project to build a decentralized secure storage system: https://tahoe-lafs.org .

Our comprehensive unit tests are invaluable for finding bugs, and we run them every time we commit a patch, on all supported platforms, but they take too long and this interferes with development flow.

This is especially a problem on the laptop of one of the lead developers, Brian Warner, who is using OS X with some sort of full-disk encryption that makes his disk I/O slow. But it is also a problem on everyone else's development machine and on the buildbots.

Therefore, I'm offering a 50ⓑ bounty to the first person who submits a patch which causes the tests to take only 4 minutes 30 seconds (approximate) instead of 24 minutes (approximate) on Brian's laptop.

2  Economy / Trading Discussion / withdrew some $ from TradeHill on: November 01, 2011, 05:04:13 PM
I withdrew a non-negligible amount of USD from TradeHill by simply filling out a form on the site and clicking submit. The resulting page said that they would put a check in the mail that same business day. Apparently they did! Because that was only last Thursday, if I recall correctly, and the check arrived today.

So this is just a report for anyone who wants to know that there was no delay, confusion or extra steps.

Here's my TradeHill referral code. So far I've made about $0.50 in referral bonuses, so it isn't so much that I hope to make a lot of money by passing out my referral code, but it does give you 10% off of their normal fees if you sign up with it:

3  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / integrating digital payments into p2p protocols on: August 21, 2010, 02:13:27 PM
Folks:

I just posted this note over on the Trade forum:

http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=30.msg10592#msg10592

There are a few hackers who would be pretty interested in contributing patches to integrate BitCoin payments directly into the Tahoe-LAFS storage protocol. It would be a big job! It would probably take a year of effort before we would be ready to deploy it in a new stable release. Of course, the more people pitch in the faster the work goes.

Regards,

Zooko
