to run the server you need LAMP

Is PostgreSQL acceptable?

Try it. Should work I think.

Could you turn on SSL as well for me to test?

BTW GET is enabled for accessing people's addresses, like:

http://fishysnax.com/getaddress/?nickname=genjix

(but not for anything else).

Hey,

Posted this yesterday but it hasn't got many views/replies... Looking for testing,

http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4353.0

./bitcoind send genjix@fishysnax.com 10

(thanks to mmarker for providing me with an SSH server for testing purposes)

to run the server you need LAMP

cp bitcoin/contrib/ns/* /var/www/

in mysql:
CREATE DATABASE bitnom;
CREATE TABLE lookup(nickname VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY(nickname), passhash VARCHAR(128) NOT NULL, address VARCHAR(44) NOT NULL);
(as specified by DATABASE file)

create a file in /var/db.bitnom.inc with these contents:
<?php
   mysql_connect('localhost', 'your_login', 'your_pass') or die(mysql_error());
   mysql_select_db('bitnom') or die(mysql_error());
?>
(as specified by db.php)

It should work now.
1664  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / [REVIEW] Name lookup branch (bitcoind send genjix@fishysnax.com 99999) on: March 10, 2011, 06:22:19 AM
- I plan to put in account locking after several wrong attempts (lock 30 mins after 5 wrong attempts).
- Password recovery is handled by the server admin- their own policies.
- I originally thought to update periodically with the name server but if you're generating a ton of keys then your wallet will get big very quickly... maybe it could update with the server everytime you generate a new key.

This was on the development roadmap, http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4170.msg60385
"design/implement a secure DNS-like "map string to bitcoin address" system  (so I can send bitcoins to "gavin@acm.org")"

https://github.com/genjix/bitcoin/tree/bitnom
(install libcurl-dev)

I've setup a test server at fishysnax.com

If you want to make an account then run:
bitcoind updatens yournickname@fishysnax.com yourpassword

That creates a new account if it doesn't yet exist. It also updates the stored address too everytime you run that.

You can change your password with:

bitcoind setnspassword yournickname@fishysnax.com yourpassword newpassword

And you can send me a tip with either:

bitcoind send genjix@fishysnax.com 10
bitcoind send 1GPBcN1wKSZ1L3FAQ1hpz9GGr1sPeAZgg8 10

1666  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Default Linux release is contrived on: March 09, 2011, 10:46:46 PM
From https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/107

Following Ubuntu's method of distribution, here's how I think Bitcoin should be offered:

1) There should be 2 packages:
bitcoin-x.y.z
bitcoin64-x.y.z
(distributing 32 bit and 64 bit builds respectively)
2) For both of these packages, bitcoin is in the top level directory.
3) bitcoind is 'hidden' in a subdirectory (like bin)
4) The main page has 2 download links like:

Bitcoin for Linux (Recommended)
Bitcoin for Linux (64 bit)

The current structure is confusing for non-technical users. See http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3904.0 for the reason why.

An alternative proposal is in the first url at the start of this post.

Why are there 2 windows packages (zip and exe) btw?

Europe languished. America survived.
Looking to the future... ignoring the past.
Suburban sprawl engulfing the land,
A lifeless blob, mindlessly expands,
Like birds of a feather, the rich flock together,
Are we building cities for cars or for people?

You should check out a program called 'Connections' by James Burke (it's free on youtube). He's a famous science historian.

But that's wrong for the simple fact that innovativity comes from creativity, and creativity is the ability to draw on wide disparate sources of knowledge- often from different fields. What you said was maybe true of the society 100 years (even 50 years) ago during the industrial age, but less so today. Narrow minded people lack the ability to see the bigger picture due to their proverbial tunnel vision.

Today generalists are more important than ever in the age of the knowledge workers.

even a poor specialist is able to work more efficiently than an excellent generalist.

Argue this false statement to me.

I know what it was like, and I imagine many people here do also.

Explain? I'm curious.
1673  Other / Off-topic / its 1990 and im surfing the web thingy on: March 09, 2011, 04:14:55 AM
today i visit about 2 sites (bitcoin & slashdot). mostly i search stuff i want. (there's enough out there for me to be choosy)

however when i use freenet, there's not many sites about so i have to click around... it gives me some idea of what it must've been like to 'surf the web' when there weren't many sites around on the net. (before my time)

when I'm without net, I get a disconnected feeling. Like I'm missing out on the chaos. Yet I grew up around all of this.

What must it have been like? The first time on the net, exposed to this new stimulus of being linked to others... Slowly rolling yourself across amateur sites... Surfing the crest of the web.

I know, it's bullshit, right? In today's world where economy is a zero sum game, we need to edge out our competitors. Crush all other countries. Jealously guard our innovations to maximise profit. Close the sourcecode. We need a strong eugenics program to allow the weak to die off (all scientists are super healthy after all). Anybody that can't afford healthcare- tough luck! Since most of you are poor, the majority of you will be in bad health and unable to work- hah!

1675  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Linux packages should have an autodetect 32/64 bit using bash on: March 09, 2011, 01:16:08 AM
What if it's PowerPC, ARM, SPARC, etc?

It will run the 32 bit version.

There aren't any bitcoin builds for those platforms anyway so the point is moot.

I really enjoy reading these. Could each new one of these be stickied until the new one appears every week?

It's good documentation too. Maybe it could go on the front page!

We should collect these somewhere.
1679  Other / Off-topic / Re: Am I the only one who uses high contrast? on: March 08, 2011, 11:36:29 PM
Maybe it depends on how you run it, buit I believe that not to be true.

I mostly say this because one of the things that I have used screen for is when my net connection is flakey and I want to be able to log back on and still have my session usable when my connection drops. You should be able to get a listing of screen sessions and reattach.

Just tried.  Indeed, closing the terminal doesn't kill the screen session.


I've been doing this for years! It's fine.

Must've saved you a lot of time to discover you don't need to detach anymore Wink
