OK, I have done that. You might want to add a notice somewhere that your site is only designed (at the moment) for US customers, so others don't get in the same situation that I am in.

Where did you get that idea? Our offices are in London, and we have accounts for British GBP, European EURO and Polish Zloty.

We aren't allowed to let people easily convert between funds as that's forex trading.
My mistake. I got the impression that withdrawals were only possible via Dwolla.

Is it possible for me to deposit USD (and not EUR) to my Intersango account via a European bank transfer (SEPA)?

It should be possible, but you'll need to pay the bank's conversion fees. Email support@intersango.com and they'll fill you. List your country and bank name and they should be able to guide you through.

Don't let depression get you down. Some of the best people society has ever known suffered depression. One of my heroes, Thomas Henry Huxley, had acute depression throughout his entire life.

Huxley was at the forefront of evolution with Darwin during the last century. Self-taught. autodidact. A boy who left school at ten became one of the most knowledgeable men in Britain. He reformed the entire education system in the UK and was responsible for turning biology from a hobby into a respectable profession.

When Huxley himself was young there were virtually no degrees in British universities in the biological sciences and few courses. Most biologists of his day were either self-taught, or took medical degrees. When he retired there were established chairs in biological disciplines in most universities, and a broad consensus on the curricula to be followed. Huxley was the single most influential person in this transformation.
Huxley founded the X Club which founded the journal Nature.

Huxley's interest in education went still further than school and university classrooms; he made a great effort to reach interested adults of all kinds: after all, he himself was largely self-educated. There were his lecture courses for working men, many of which were published afterwards... and so was the free library organised by the college, an idea which was widely copied. Huxley thought, and said, that the men who attended were as good as any country squire. The technique of printing his more popular lectures in periodicals which were sold to the general public was extremely effective... Its theme that vital action is nothing more than "the result of the molecular forces of the protoplasm which displays it" shocked the audience.

Sadly Thomas Henry Huxley suffered depression throughout his lifetime. Many others in his family were mentally ill. Several descendents from first to third generation of his suffered severe depresson, some committing suicide.

You look really young. And there are still a huge amount of things that will happen in your life. Try to enjoy yourself. Just have fun Smiley We live in incredible times. Everything is moving forwards quickly and we're a part of that, simply by participating in cyber-space.

runeks, you should open a ticket on Intersango by emailing support@intersango.com and then someone will respond to solve your issue. It's better that way as we can better track tasks and assign them to the correct people appropriately.
1086  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The bitcoin client could help with distributed search. on: September 28, 2011, 08:01:12 PM
Firmly against the idea.

I support free speech. But don't want a search engine in bitcoin.
I support Esperanto. But don't want bitcoin to be in Esperanto by default.
I support free DNS. But don't want namecoin attached to bitcoin.

Bitcoin is strictly money. We all have diverse ideas and points of view- that's what makes us exciting. But expanding bitcoin anywhere beyond it's narrow focus would serve to be a flashpoint and source of contention, and negatively affect the project.
1087  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Intersango arbitrage opportunities (free money) on: September 28, 2011, 07:15:34 PM
I'm surprised nobody is taking advantage of all this free money out there to be made between exchanges.

We placed a priority on developing on API to enable bots to do trading for this very reason.

There are no fees and we have good support. Intersango accepts USD, EUR and GBP.

There's basically easy money to be made from the gaps in prices between exchanges and even inside exchanges.

Here's some Python code to find the USD <-> whatever exchange rate using Google:
Code:
def query_fiat_rate(conn, currency):
    conn.request("GET", "/search?q=1usd+to+"+currency)
    response = conn.getresponse()
    html = response.read()
    match = re.search('<b>1 U[.]S[.] dollar = ([0-9.]*) [A-Za-z .]*</b>', html)
    if match is not None:
        return decimal.Decimal(match.group(1))
    raise FiatRateNotFound(currency)

import httplib
conn = httplib.HTTPConnection("www.google.com")
print query_fiat_rate(conn, 'EUR')

Documentation for other exchanges APIs can be found on their websites. Intersango API

No updated news on an EU directive that is going to take months (if not years).

BTW I should've said currency overlay, not overlay currency as someone correctly pointed out.

I don't post often on the forums, so please direct your questions to me on IRC: genjix in #bitcoinconsultancy

Hey John,

I don't know if you've been following my project libbitcoin:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=30646.0
https://gitorious.org/libbitcoin/libbitcoin

I've been making good progress.

Anyway I just wanted to say that you should try to make bitcoin-qt as generic as possible wherever you can with replaceable backends. That means in the future you'll have more developers focused around developing one GUI (and pooling effort) rather than many competing clients running in parallel.

I haven't been checking the forums so much since there seemed to be more discussion on the mailing list.

I actually changed the name before to BRC (Bitcoin Request for Comments) which I prefer, but since people here like BIP I've changed the name.

Name isn't too important as long as the process is there and respected Smiley

Wiki is not a bad place for having these proposals up, but it would be a good idea to have these backed up in a secondary location on github.com/bitcoin/bips/

This is not a big deal and completely standard in open source communities. We all love the software and so try to find ways to work on it full time.

All are welcome in our faith.

Every 9am at the call to coders, we turn face to Linux and worship the one true Coin while chanting our mantra "all software must be free and all information wants to be free". We have sworn to a life of celibacy. Our skin, softened from decay, burns in sunlight. We eschew food and exercise.

For a new race shall silently conquer the world. Neither human, nor animal. The geek shall inherit the Earth.

Free beer too.

Seriously. You all bitch and complain about how terrible things are. Get out there. It's easy to procrastinate or criticize. Unless you're taking action or working 14+ hours a day to better things then you should feel bad. Bitcoin will always be around and frankly that isn't a valid cop-out now.

I swear I would drop everything I'm doing now if I wasn't on the other side of the globe.

If you are remotely near NYC then you have no excuse.

Nice idea Smiley
Don't forget to take videos.

We're trying. Hopefully it might work out but there's some factors that can conspire against us making recordings.

We just added Zarren Spry (LinuxCoin) to the 1 hour workshops on the second day!

You tend to think that risk-free businesses tend to stay longer. That's not true. Risk-free business is a scam. Because we take risk, our profits are generally higher. When there are serious issues such as security breaches, we are glad to put our profit in again and continue operation and compensate all customers. Risk-free businesses will just run away because they can't afford to do so.

That's untrue. We've already invested 100k into our bitcoin operations and are continuing strong. I'm personally liable for any lost funds if the company should ever go bankrupt. I'm willing to back that statement up with a legal contract (up to a certain amount that I would be able to realistically pay off working over 2 years).

No business is risk-free. Yes, risky businesses have higher profits, but they also have higher volatility and there's always the sudden chance of them going bust overnight. We're very risk averse for that reason since it scares the shit out of me that we could wake up and have lost everyone's money. Then we'd have no means to pay people back if you look at past examples like bitomat, mtgox, mybitcoin, .etc
1099  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Bitcoin Enhancement Proposals (BEPS) on: September 19, 2011, 12:32:25 AM
I adapted the Python PEP 0001 to Bitcoin (its license is public domain):

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin_Enhancement_Proposals

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/BEP_0001

BEP 0001 is open to additional authors and revisions.

Ideally these should go in a github.com/bitcoin/beps/ repo.

Lets have a standardisation track for changes to the protocol.
