You're talking about allopatric genetic drift (see left column),


The longest chain of the two after being merged becomes the main one.

Also in the GMail account the signature field had a bunch of smileys like:

(: (: (: (:

But Russians don't use those kind of smileys. They write )) like that )))  some more stuff )))))

However when checking the logs, the first 4 IP addresses were from Russia.

My bank is fucking rubbish with security. When I log into internet banking they ask for any 1 of my answers to 3 secret questions (mothers maiden name, first school .etc - no numbers) and 3 random digits of my 6 digit passphrase!!

When I was reading the source code to their webpages, they were written for netscape navigator.

No, I'd rather not pay the premium for their security/fraud protection. nothx, I can secure myself faaarrrr better.

That fraud protection you get isn't free. They cover that with fees, and the service in return is very poor. It's like insurance or warranty on a purchase- if you're sensible (and the risk isn't a significant portion of your savings) then it's a bad investment.
1786  Economy / Marketplace / Re: LibreOffice foundation looks for donations. on: February 19, 2011, 05:20:11 PM
I saw that.

Why do they need 50k for? That's retardedly huge. All the developers have everything they need. They don't need an office since everybody works from home. In short: why 50k?

If it's some silly German law, why not setup in a cheaper country. I'm sure you can pay 1/50th that in a developing country. If this is how they spend money then it seems silly to donate to them.

Quote
The Steering Committee has set itself a deadline for collecting the required funds, which will be March 21st, 2011. If, by that date, we do not have enough money through actual donations or firm pledges by sponsors, the foundation will not be formed in Germany and - instead - we will opt for a legal entity in the United Kingdom.

Nonetheless, after careful consideration of all the possibilities, we are convinced that a German-based solution provides more advantages than any other country. We are calling on all users, adopters, and - notably - enterprises and corporations to support our efforts and help us form The Document Foundation: with your support, we can make it happen!

Let me get this straight. They decided that Germany (which requires 50k upfront) is the best choice... Followed by the UK. Seriously?? The UK? wtf. The land of the most restrictive IP laws, censorship, mandatory internet blacklist, worst libel laws in all of Europe?

1789  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: A simple application to backup your wallet in Dropbox and Gmail on: February 19, 2011, 05:18:25 AM
There's no reason to back up the wallet so often. Really, the only thing that needs backing up are they private keys associated from each account. Given a private key, you can create the public key, and from that, the address. Since Bitcoin keeps ~100 spare private keys in the wallet (for later use for change, etc), you no longer need to backup your wallet after every transaction. Ideally I think, you should back up your wallet when most of the keys from the prior backup's key pool have been used.

And how do you detect such an event?

And to reiterate my opinion based on the technical analysis.
THERE IS NO BUBBLE IMMINENT.

Then how come the price of BTC has gone from 1$ = 0.95 BTC to $1 = 1.06 BTC overnight? The bid price on mtgox is now 0.91 ($1 = 1.1 BTC)

Last 48 hours,


Price is starting to swing now that the effect of the dark pool's coverup is weakening.

1792  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [POLL] Should we ban something on the Bitcoin marketplace? on: February 18, 2011, 01:19:13 PM
seriously if bitcoin is destined to go mainstream then it's bound to happen regardless of 'image'. quite simply because it's so unique and there's nothing else like it.

i say allow the freedom of expression. it's the best way to develop ideas to strengthen bitcoin. you might not see the value in offering drugs for bitcoin, but neither did people in the past at other outlandish ideas.

nothing has to be done. just sit back, ride the wave and work like beavers. the types of people easily put off by these things aren't that valuable anyway (rats jumping ship at first sign of trouble).

Actually adding transactions is optional. Some miners don't add them.

looking for feedback or code review.

of course you can use GPG, but i made this to put into the client and make backups seemless. So I'd appreciate a few of you playing around with it. Tell me if I missed anything important.

if that grows any steeper then the value of bitcoin will loop back on itself.

which is good because we'll go back in time so i can buy loads of bitcoins before it increases in value and repeat the process = infinite money. genjix: 1 market: 0
