Wireless Cameras with a sign will lower the probability of something happening.

Does not offer protection, it only fends off burglars.
Cameras are not security, they simply record and not protect.
I can kill anyone in front of a camera and get away with it as long as it's not streaming to a secure or undisclosed location.

Cameras are not security.

Man, if only I believed in the devil. wasn't an atheist.

Also: are there any Bible/Quran passages against this?

Not to crash your thread, but...
I will translate everything from Dutch-to-English and back!

Send me a PM on the forum (here!) or hit me up on FreeNode IRC! (Nickname: Xunie, ofcourse)

I'm available 7 days a week! Cheesy

Pretty sure this is spam. Who advertises iPad cases in their sig?

Would a spammer make a question that specific? That seems a bit to good for someone who's job was writing a post that wouldn't get deleted.

Did mod remove links?

Yes, I removed the link.
I'm not deleting the post because it's still a valid question.

While this is exciting to me (it was only a matter of time IMO), I urge everyone to be cautious. This could just as easily be a scam as the real thing. Wait until WikiLeaks posts a Bitcoin address on their site and just use that address.
My thought exactly.
And doesn't Assange have a private key he can use to sign the official address?

So people, this can be a scam, don't donate until you're sure it's not!

Also, this:

I'm kind of looking for someone to help me security harden my server at the moment.

What does your server run? -- No don't tell me.
I can probably help a bit, I can pen test it!
7  Economy / Marketplace / Re: (Linux) programmer/sysadmin for hire (small project?) on: April 20, 2011, 12:49:26 PM
I have the most amount of experience with MySQL.

I'm not that familiar with security hardening, I've never used SELinux but I can learn. (Not like I have a job right now.)
I do know how to fix SQL injection/XSS/buffer overflows, etc. if I have the source, of course.

I must say that I'm available 24/7, and I have a "wake up" url on my server I can give you that when accessed through your browser will try to wake me up with beeps.
(Abusing is not amusing.)

I live in the Netherlands (timezone: CEST (UTC+02:00) right now, CET (UTC+01:00) during winter)
I'm on Freenode 24/7, highlight me or send me a private message there and I'll respond ASAP.
(Also: I'm taking lessons for my driving license, I should be getting my license in about 3-7 weeks.
So if physical access is required to a server hosted in (or near) the Netherlands, I can drive there 24/7)

Instead of "flipping burgers", I'm gonna be using my skills to earn bitcoins.
If you hire me, I'll program for you and I'll sell you the source code.
You can use the source code for whatever you want, I don't care as long as you pay! Tongue

So, here's what I know:
Advanced in C/C++ (limited OOP knowledge), know some perl/HTML/CSS/PHP/lua.
(Don't expect me to make huge websites or anything, but a small page shouldn't be hard.)

Anyhow, if you need a small hackish script that does something, I won't over-charge you.
Prices will be negotiable.

Either PM me or write in the thread!

If you want windows code, you can modify it yourself, the C/C++ code I'll give you will run on POSIX systems, but don't expect it to run on Windows without modification.
I use HTML5/CSS3, get with the time already man!
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Which IRC channel to use for non-dev discussion? on: December 09, 2010, 01:58:59 AM
We (actually Satoshi) should do a group registration on FreeNode.

I suggest we use #bitcoin for all other discussion relating Bitcoin that is not development.
11  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Vanity bitcoin addresses: a new way to keep your CPU busy on: October 13, 2010, 02:46:01 PM
I would love a regular expression functionality, I vote for PCRE and POSIX ERE functionality! in that order.
12  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / First planned IRC meeting! Sun, Oct 24th, #bitcoin-meeting on Freenode on: October 13, 2010, 02:41:25 PM
Well, that failed miserably, meeting scrapped guys, unless people have something to say or talk about and are actually coming.
People who wanna chat can come to #bitcoin-dev on Freenode.

Well, last time I checked people were for the idea of IRC (chat) meetings.
And since no planning took place while I was gone, I'll just pick a date and see if anyone shows up for a chat, speaking, etc.

The meeting will be on Freenode's #bitcoin-meeting channel.
In case you don't have an IRC client, you can always go to

The meeting will be held on Sunday, October 24th at 1:00 pm (13:00) GMT.Timetable on the wiki page!
I picked what I think will be an appropriate time for all Bitcoiners.
Only thing is the Australians in Sydney will be up late and the Americans on the west coast will be up early!Laptop in bed is recommended! Tongue
Unless this is a real bummer and half the people can't come because of this, I'd reschedule it to another time/date.

Other than drawing people from the forum to the IRC channel I have no idea what to discuss during the meeting!
I hope you guys can make something up, type out an article and just copy paste it while everyone else is muted.

Here's the wiki page with the time table and other information:
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is an hypothetical "chance" attack possible? on: October 12, 2010, 10:13:19 PM
People discussed that there is an element of "chance" or "luck" involved in generating a block.
So, one day I might generate two blocks while another day I might generate none.

Now the network is build around people generating blocks which seals in the transactions etc.
And since a double spending attack is possible by 'reversing' the block -- which requires significant CPU time --,
is the 'double spending attack' based a bit on chance, or not?

If so, then an attacker wouldn't just need half the network, or more.
The attacker needs just 40 percent of the network? more or less, right?
It all depends on chance if reversing the block has a chance element to it.

So I ask my fellow Bitcoiners: Does it?

PS: Sorry for being away, I'll be on the forum from now on again!
14  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Changelog? on: July 19, 2010, 07:07:40 PM

I agree, we need a changelog.
I wanted to see what changed from 0.3.0 to 0.3.2 and the only way I could find out were the forums.
Not a good thing.

This is handy, although I prefer GNUPlot personally....
16  Economy / Marketplace / List of honest traders. on: July 19, 2010, 06:48:52 PM
We have some scammers on the forums here, so if you do not know if you can trust a person?
Just check in the list here.

If you got scammed? Please post here: Scammer Accusations
Please also post the traders you trust.
If you've traded with someone before and everything went okay?
Post his/her (nick) name here. (ofcourse, websites that accept Bitcoin payments are good too!)

Anyhow, I'll start:
  • BitcoinMarket
  • Theymos

edit: I trust Theymos and BitcoinMarket!
17  Economy / Scam Accusations / Beware of scammers! on: July 19, 2010, 06:42:22 PM
Recently, since we've been slashdotted, we've had a few scammers lurking on the forums here.
Now, I want to warn everyone trading here, that there are scammers around here.
Please take some time and ask someone to be the middle man in your trade if you trade with a person you don't know or trust.

So please people, watch out for scammers.

PS: Report any scammers in this thread.
18  Economy / Marketplace / Re: A question (I hope this in the right place) on: July 15, 2010, 04:09:32 PM
Uh Blizzard won't like that. did a feature on how gold selling is explicitly not allowed in WoW.  Such trades could be bannable offenses. You won't find a legit trading price because there is none.

The idea is interesting in general for game currencies that have a precedent of being traded. The only one that comes to me is Second Life's L$

In fact, Blizzard makes a lot of money from this.
They hold mass bannings, ban accounts, not IP addresses, so the botters make new accounts and pay for their accounts, so Blizzard makes big bucks.
World of Warcraft does have a two (or three) week try out period.
I heard it's possible to get an account up to level 80 in that time, mining gold along the way and selling that, and finally selling the account for big bucks!

Anyhow, these are all rumors I heard, don't take 'em from me. I don't even play World of Warcraft!
19  Economy / Marketplace / Re: World's SECOND Bitcoin lottery, Slashdot edition, this time stock markets! on: July 15, 2010, 04:00:15 PM
You say
This time, we'll use the last 3 numbers of stock index closing prices, that is one number before (left of) the comma, and the two after (right of) the comma.

Which of these numbers are those?

the comma and period are different in different nations...

The bottom three.
This kinda shot my mind actually, and apparently my use of the comma/period have been switched.
I used to write numbers "1.234,56" instead of "1,234.56", but from now on I will stick to ISO 31-0 by writing "1 234.56". Tongue
20  Economy / Marketplace / Re: World's SECOND Bitcoin lottery, Slashdot edition, this time stock markets! on: July 14, 2010, 03:03:59 PM
Okay, when I wrote this yesterday I was really tired.
Today I did some math, and with 1000 possible lots and only 5 lots per person max, this gives enough room for 200 users, which is hard to manage manually.

I'm making a website for this.

So eh, no one gave me any money yet, so I'm postponing this 'till next week.

Sorry to get everyone's hopes up.
