Are you searching using Alta Vista?

First hit from google:

I get your point about wanting assurance that a website is trustworthy, but discounting websites created by anyone 18 is the wrong filter for that.

Figuring out the right filter is a good idea though.

Any number of business agreements would be good candidates for this too. A freely traded market value would be easy to confirm, but I wonder about values from an independent auditor. I like the idea of the result from the oracle not being open to debate.
"oracle transactions" aren't a good name though, too well known from the database software.

Nonsense.  In Canadian law, you cannot enter into an agreement with a minor.  If he is under 18 anything you are sending to him is his, and he has no legal liability to give it back.
Are you making up or have you just misread something? A minor, or anyone with diminished mental capacity,  can more easily get out of a contract if it becomes clear they were taken advantage of, but that doesn't mean you can't enter into an agreement with a minor. I'm just basing that on common sense though.

The number listed in the whois is from an Indian cell phone?

Very nice looking neighborhood though, according to Google Earth.
Really? It's my cell phone.
Area code 905 is for southern Ontario, where I live.

I believe you, I just found it odd it was listed on (several) old Indian cell phone registries.

How old are you?
getting a little creepy there Jafm.

Now for an example, I am a US citizen, I try to get in to Canada, they run my name through the computer system that they have access to US's computer systems, they ask if i have any criminal record, yea, I have a dui, they run my name find the dui, other records pop up from 1996, Paraphernalia and Grand theft auto, which I was never convicted of, but the records still show the reports. I get denied. But the murderer is able to get in because the US or Canadian computer systems don't have access to his country's computer systems because "they might be a poor country and or don't keep record". This is all as an example.
It's an example with a lot of specific detail.

I'm a developer.(I don't think the forum is short of them) Why dont you keep the lead on what a bond front end would do, and then we can design how to do it. We shouldn't need the development subsidized, but would be better than

The ticket has come to nothing, here are the details of why.
That sounds like it was brutal. Great read though.
Did you sleep during that whole time? How long until you can apply for a new Visa?

The funny thing about that SA thread is that the amount of spent mocking bitcoins has exposed many of them to how they work. The focus eventually became less on bitcoins, and more on the forum and the posters here.

Hey, new crap comic!

What is the intended message of this (specific) comic? MtG: OX should be closed over weekends? Banks should be open 24/7? Buying cheap bitcoins and then watching them steadily lose value is the road to riches?
He has a point. What is that comic supposed to be about?

I used to listen to alex jones until he became a birther. Then i stopped caring.

You voted for O-daddy?

I hope that means you didn't vote at all. Watching Americans squander having Obama as a president is shocking.

tl;dr, but where does the democracy come in? decentralized and democratic are totally different things.

So, what are you planning to do with the funds you raise before paying thm back?

Any suggestions?

It seems like there should be some value just in properly creating the mechanics of a bond. I would think there would be a way to integrate it with GLBSE, not by investing with companies but by having the bond payout be in shares at market value for a GLBSE security.

My suggestion would be to use the money from your bond to set up a website that handles creating bonds.

SMS does seem like a great idea, but don't most of the charges get taken up by the phone company?  A quick google search suggests it would be around 50%. Is it really that high?
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Mention on Alex Jones Today & Mention of Bitcoin Forum URL on: July 23, 2011, 03:35:36 PM
alex jones already said he'll look into it and he will undoubtedly search for his name in the forum and find this thread.  Shocked
Maybe he already knows just to search for "dink".
Does everyone think he didn't already know about bitcoin?
jahova's witnesses, don't be them.
I know pointing out spelling mistakes on forums is petty, but given the relationship between the "name of god", combinations and permutations, cryptography, and bitcoins, that one really stands out.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Transaction fee clarifications needed on: July 23, 2011, 01:22:41 AM
This comes up again and again, and I always say the same thing, and get ignored.

People don't care about paying this tiny fee.

People are upset / confused because it is explained so POORLY,  and that many Bitcoin boosters claim "no fees".

Set expectations properly.  Explain the fees.  People don't mind paying the fee, they just don't like "surprise" fees that they don't understand.


I actually tried to explain there were fees once.  No such thing as a free lunch, even in Bitcoin utopia.  I got some smart ass reply about being a sheep to the credit card companies.  Maybe you'll have better luck.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Dwolla's Fisync - Direct competition with Bitcoin on: July 23, 2011, 01:19:50 AM
This will actually be really good for bitcoin!

Bitcoin will become more approachable to the common person, who will be able to buy a bitcoin in minutes or hours instead of days.

Imagine being able to instantaneously buy bitcoins - I mean truly really instantaneously - from bank account to wallet file.
You'd still have to go through an exchange.

Buying bitcoins in Canada is already fairly quick. It took me about an hour the first time. direct from bank account to cavirtex via email. The transfer cost is higher though: $1.50

can US citizens use it?
Not really. The useful part is the email money transfer, which is connected to the Canadian banks.
