Storing your wallet on Dropbox is not a dumb idea if you think about it Tongue.

I'm pretty sure it's Hostgator or at least something similar. Their site can obviously handle no more traffic than Susie's Geocities page about beanie babies.
Don't even say that name. They are so bad just so bad.  Cry Cry Cry Cry

An exchange cant revert hours of trades back just because one account got hacked.

Why do you speak lies?  Ever heard of the flash crash?  Trades are backed out all the time on global exchanges.  You are ignorant and uneducated.
I was referring in terms of Bitcoin exchange, my bad for not making that clear. If we were to follow the Bitcoin philosophy than reverting hours of trading would go against that philosophy and that's why so many people are against the idea of changing the trades back.

Looks very professional and I am glad to see that you guys are taking this a bit more serious by having a third party security firm analyze it. It seems like some serious thought and lots of money is being put into this. Can't wait!

Question: Why can the password only be alphanumeric?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: MTGox: password invalid . . . OR account is not currently under claim process! on: June 21, 2011, 11:38:27 PM
Hopefully the Mt. Gox team will legit(ly) review every claim and check simple information such as IP's etc. But honestly I doubt they actually do review every claim...

I have created a file going through the latest 4000 posts on the Bitcoin.org forums, taking that number down to 1984 after eliminating any non Mt. Gox related posts.

These 1984 posts were then gone through two systems set up where, in short, would mark the threads as "Pro-Gox" or "Anti-Gox"

Seeing as how this whole market is based upon speculation and fear, I went ahead and determined exactly what will happen in the following 2 week time (1 week guaranteed only, acts of god etc), and I will release this information to you for the mere donation of .0069 Bitcoin


*Estimate time of delivery of files 6-8 weeks

*Offer void


All I need to hear, is that you are taking bitcoins as payment for your bitcoin market analysis!  Grin

 Cool Cool Cool Cool
Hahaha brilliant. I can just create a little script that will go through the entire feed of this forum and look for pro and negative words in every thread that mentions Mt. Gox and than make that categorize it... Poor thing went through 4000 threads by hand  Grin.

60 seconds? Damn you must have an IQ closely hitting the 60 target. Took me maybe 10 and it gave me lulz so worth it.

I hope you can still sleep at night.
Hahaha that made me crackup. If I had over 200 Bitcoins I would be awake 24/7 checking my iPhone -_-.

VPS is a step up from shared hosting, but really, I am surprised to know that they do not have their own dedicated server.  A dedicated server is only around $100 to $200 USD a month.  
Some VPS's are 400 dollars per month and four times as good as a 100 dollar dedicated server. All depends on the quality and service.

How's Bitcoin 7 treating you?

Already suggested that in another thread but than by location Tongue. Just got with the timezone...

The twat who was CEO of HB Garry, a federal security firm, and got hacked by Anonymous when he claimed he knew the "leaders" entities.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: So is Mt. Gox getting DDos'd? on: June 21, 2011, 09:40:58 PM
Yes and we are the ones DDOSing it Tongue. Also it wouldn't surprise me if they are running the claim server on the first generation xBox  Roll Eyes.

That looks shady as shit for some reason...
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Making it public: I have moved the disputed 643.2771 BTC into an escrow account on: June 21, 2011, 09:34:23 PM
Although I am new to the community and been only a Bitcoin follower and trader for a week now I have analyzed and studied many articles and papers about Bitcoin. I follow the market closely and I have ready dozens of articles, threads, and comments relating to the Mt. Gox incident. As a web developer and using my logic my personal opinion is that Mt. Gox fucked up big time when we look at their website security and how they are handling this. Although we can't verify if the account with the 500k Bitcoins really existed or not does not matter when you look at the dispute between Mt. Gox and Kevin.

So far Kevin has done nothing wrong, just like anyone would do in this situation and tried to buy as many Bitcoins as possible for .01 cents and than tried to withdraw them as fast as possible before the market and Mt. Gox crashed. If I had 3000 dollars on my Mt. Gox account I would have done the same freaking thing. Some people argue that it's impossible that Kevin was able to place a bid after the hacking started as the website was to laggy or down. This is different for every PC and totally depends on the connection, DNS, location, server, etc. A website may be down or slower for someone than for someone else.

If is telling the truth I believe that he should be allowed to keep the Bitcoins he legally bought even if the account with the 500k Bitcoins was hacked. In a real exchange the same thing would happen. An exchange cant revert hours of trades back just because one account got hacked. No matter how much money there is on it. If Mt. Gox reverts all the traders because of this than I want to see them do the same thing when my account gets hacked and my 10 Bitcoins get sold.

I believe that they must also have the server power, having at least multiple servers, DNS's, firewalls, DDOS protection etc. A real exchange unlike the current ones should have hired employees that work full time instead of one person doing everything from security to operating the website...
20  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: MtGox down again on: June 21, 2011, 09:20:35 PM
Hopefully tomorrow or in a few days the traffic will be less. Basically what is happening now is that we (the consumers) are DDOSing the website...
