he stated too many times that he would be against the rollback.
I think he should return the BTCs but the idea of MtGox rolling transactions back is very disturbing. They will get off too easy.

I'm pretty sure most of you would do the same thing as Kevin. I know I would Smiley
I think he should return the BTCs but MtGox should also be punished.

AFAIK a very large amount of BTC changed hands. How can it be rolled back?
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / idea about nullifying recent MtGox hack on: June 20, 2011, 06:31:44 AM
I was wondering,

since all the transactions in Bitcoin network are broadcasted to the network, we know where the stolen money goes, right?
so we can easily track transactions going out and in to those Bitcoin addresses. Wouldn't it be possible for exchange sites to block those addresses so that they can't convert BTCs to USD/EUR etc...?

Hello everyone, I'm almbfsek. I've first heard about Bitcoin when it was still equal to couple of dollars. Back then, I did some mining. I even got some free BTC from the Faucet then I simply forgot about everything and lost my wallet while upgrading my OS. Now, after many months, I'm too late on the Bitcoin bandwagon -as always-. With the regret of missing the possibility of being a rich man, I've registered here thinking about buying lots of GPUs and doing 7/24 mining but then I realized that with the current speed of difficulty increase, my gain wouldn't even cover the initial investment (am I wrong?). So here I am, just trying to contribute to the community because I still like the idea behind Bitcoins.

AFAIK there are no more mining features on the official client.

well modifying the source was easier afterall Smiley

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY, "socks://");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXYTYPE, CURLPROXY_SOCKS5);

works like a charm...

upgrading the libcurl is the easiest I guess, thanks!

@cynikal: thank you. http_proxy is what I was looking for. I did "export http_proxy=socks5://" and it doesn't work because according to this( my curl version(7.21.3) doesn't support protocol prefix(socks5://) on the URL. so I did some research but I couldn't find how to specify socks5 with env. variables. do you know how?

thank you

hello guys,

I have an SSH tunnel that I use as a SOCKS proxy for my web browser. I would also like to use it with mining softwares.
is it even possible? I thought since miners use HTTP protocol it should be possible.
if so, which 3rd party application can I use in order to route the miner's connection through the proxy? or may be the miner's code should be modified?

thank you in advance
