1  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: Electrum suddenly not working - network status red on: May 02, 2014, 11:19:23 PM
ok mine says Synchronizing now too. I'm glad it looks like it's doing something but I don't like the idea of a wallet that isn't working full time. Could this be a problem with the servers? 

The servers are all run by volunteers using open source code that was made non-profit out of the good will of people's hearts.

You probably connected to a server that was having difficulties, maybe their cat slept on the escape key or something.

If you have connection issues, try reconnecting, try connecting to a different server, etc.

Maybe in the future, there will be some sort of business running official professionally maintained servers for Electrum. Until then, you're basically relying on a group of volunteers. (then of course... the same can be said for the Bitcoin Core, multibit, or ANY bitcoin wallet...)

Thanks for the explanation, I wasn't aware.

Hello,

I have been using electrum for awhile now with no problems at all but suddenly now it's not working, say "not connected". I almost seem to remember reading somewhere that I should update the client, but I didn't see anything on their website about that. I'm on version 1.9.5 running on ubuntu 14.04. Or now that I write this maybe it quit working when I updated to ubuntu 14.04? Any ideas?

Hey again, I'm actually going to meet up with my friend who runs this organization tomorrow, I'll speak to him about the idea of taking bitcoin, see what his thinks about it. If he's down with it, we'll need to think of what the best way to implement it.

Hello,

I'm the one who is suggesting www.volodalen.asso.fr above. If there are any questions maybe I can answer them.

Thanks,
Bruce

Hi again,

I talked to my friend and he agreed that it would be a good idea. If you guys want to support his org let me know what I can do.

Bruce

ok I've setup him up with a wallet (as well taught him all about the security rules) and we've update the webpage to accept bitcoin, can be seen here:

Also if anyone can help promote the meetup that would be great, so far the meeting is small.

Probably service providers like Redhat can help you with that.
Open Source does not mean "for free" by the way, just to be sure.

Yes I was thinking about redhat too, but it would be cool if there was an organization that offered free advice or support. Of course with free you can't expect the same level of service as a professional consulting business, but I think it would be great if something like this existed.

Yes I know open source does not mean there is no or can't be cost around service or even the software itself.   
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Slovenia: No Capital Gains Tax on Bitcoin on: December 26, 2013, 12:55:23 PM
I really like Slovenia, it's a nice place and this is good news to hear. But to me I don't really care that much if we have to pay capital gains on the sales, because that's just like anything else. In fact maybe if will end up being a positive because it could encourage people to use bitcoin rather than sell it for fiat.
16  Other / Off-topic / open source software support on: December 26, 2013, 11:35:48 AM
For example if I owned a business that wanted to go full open source software, is there anyone out there that could help me with solutions? Or what if I were just a long time Windows user who wanted to go with linux, but was intimidated by the learning curve and the Internet forums seems to geeky, is there a place for me to go?

What is the best place I can point someone to who might be interested in changing to open source software? Is there a one stop shopping for that?
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: PayPal vs Bitcoin on: December 25, 2013, 11:57:38 AM
paypal is just awful, they were always investigating my purchase even though I never did anything shady, just normal purchases. It got so bad I finally closed my paypal account and now they won't even allow me to use their processing service with the card that I used to have on my account. What I mean is if someone is using paypal to process credit cards on their website for example, it won't work for me with my credit card. Paypal sees that it is my card and won't allow me to use it.

yeah it's a shame but it's just the way it is with this sort of new technology. I hope in the coming years the software will make it safer for users.

"I think giving him amnesty is idiotic,” said Woolsey, who ran the CIA from 1993 to 1995. “He should be prosecuted for treason. If convicted by a jury of his peers, he should be hanged by his neck until he is dead."

It's sad that guys like this are likely too old to ever realize how wrong they are.
