The only surprising thing to me here is:  a long bitcointalk thread where nobody questions the official story of the MSM. 

I wondered this myself and came to the conclusion that no-one even bothers questioning the MSM because they implicitly assume (KNOW?) that they are spinning propaganda ... it must have been like this with Pravda during the USSR.

... I guess everyone has to make a crust somehow .... juxtaposing innovation with compliance doesn't make it innovative though.

Snowden isn't in any danger at all (except, perhaps from kidnap by foreign intelligence operatives).

It's absurd to think the US authorities would try to kill him. He would have been perfectly safe had he stayed in the US too.

You might not have been paying attention ...

Hi,

you have just arrived from Wall St. haven't you?

I'm not sure we need your kind around here. Report yourself to Bart Chilton and/or Jennifer Shasky Calvery ....

Thnx.

Good evening,

Now, this might have only just occurred to me now and of course this would constitute fraud but what is stopping an individual from getting a line of credit in the 6 figure range, then purchasing a massive amount of Bitcoins then rinse with bankruptcy? I imagine the individual wouldn't care about his credit if they had several hundred thousand in the 'wallet'.

Your thoughts?

P.s. I hope someone is foolish enough to do this, it would prop the price up a bit for the rest of us  Cheesy

Ask Bart Chilton what happened to all the gold and silver bullion MF Global was holding in customer accounts that disappeared?
He is head of Commodities Futures Trading Commission right?

How does hundreds of millions of dollars worth of bullion go missing on your watch and no-one asks him how? It is not like Jon Corzine lost it down the back of the sofa ....

Edit2: wife just gave drive-by comment that she didn't read the 't' (on a laptop background sized image) on first glance ... had to do a double-take, stronger cross-bar for the t? totally up to you (she didn't have contacts in either Smiley)

The 't' is fine, it's just the angle + camera focus. See the earlier ones on page 2.

good point ... perpendicular on looks fine.

Thinking of rotating perspectives, wonder if anyone wants to do an animated gif with the big O-globe rotating about it's axis of symmetry ... 'made round to go round' and all that  Grin

sold!

NB: it is a little more 'busy' in top right ... but isn't that one of those naturally discounted areas on the page so the little bit o' business draws the eye to it? ... or else 'tx' might not be consciously noted.  W/E i like it.

Edit: ooohhh , just set as desktop background and got a warm fuzzy feeling.  Cheesy

I think people have got the power flow inverted in their minds ... power flows from the people ...

The correct question is "Do the regulators want to work with Bitcoin .... ?"

So far, it seems not.
1074  Economy / Services / Re: Temporary Job Offering for Installing Namecoin Wallet by Remote Access. on: June 18, 2013, 01:56:56 AM
No i don't have any problems with it.  I test received 2 NMC today.  How do i know this wallet is legit?  How do i know if it doesn't nefariously steal my private key or send my NMC somewhere else by remote control?

We are testing and reviewing the namecoin-qt open source code, a branch of it is already in the official namecoin/namecoin repo for anybody's viewing pleasure. Seems pretty legit, but you are right to do due diligence  Smiley

Here are two more files. One is the world logo in a large png, the other is the same mockup but with the logo I think you're leaning towards.
As you probably can tell, I'm very excited about this project lol.



I like this first logo v. much ... any chance we could get to see the above embossed one with the same background and "OPEN" but a superscript 'txs' instead of the "transactions" underlining?

Lol well I was trying to figure out how much it is. The error should tell me that not the fee is 0.

Well as with everything for fees bitcoin-like ... "it depends" is the only correct answer. But you are right, it should not say fee is 0.
1077  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: [ANN] NEW - Namecoin-QT with integrated Name Registration (v3.63) on: June 18, 2013, 12:58:15 AM
With an empty wallet, trying to register a domain doesn't tell me how much I need, it just says fee is 0.

I use min tx fee of 0.005 and there is the name_new network fee of 0.01. The QT wallet quite cleverly sets aside 0.02 nmc so it can do the automatic name_firstupdate (12 blocks after name_new has a confirm). There maybe extra charges if your coins are made up of dusty outputs, etc ... I know for sure you cannot register a name with an empty wallet and have no idea why you would try, but hey, any testing is good.

tl;dr
If you have 0.02 nmc in your wallet you should be able to get a name registered. If you have nothing I can guarantee you will NOT get a name registered.

This looks like a really useful tool ... there are some concerns on the #namecoin irc

[16:39] <randy-waterhouse> http://namecoin.com/
[16:42] <Jeremy_Rand> randy-waterhouse: do you know if the source code for the namecoin.com Firefox/Chrome plugin is posted anywhere?
[16:42] <echelon> d'oh.. whenever i looked up namecoin i got redirected to the dotbit website
[16:42] <echelon> extensions are already open source aren't they?
[16:42] <Jeremy_Rand> echelon: not necessarily, extensions can be obfuscated
[16:44] <randy-waterhouse> Jeremy_Rand: good point, caution advised
[16:44] <randy-waterhouse> hopefully namecoin.bit guy will post eventually
[16:44] <randy-waterhouse> maybe waiting for first mover advantage to cement itself?
[16:45] <randy-waterhouse> anyone know who is behiind namecoin.com  ??
[16:46] <echelon> apparently this guy.. http://www.maayainfotech.com/
[16:49] <echelon> interesting
[16:49] <echelon> the extension is not obfuscated
[16:49] <echelon> and it seems to retrieve this proxy auto-config file
[16:49] <echelon> http://namecoin.com/extension/proxy.pac
[16:49] <echelon> so the extension won't work if the domain is down
[16:49] <echelon> and they could change it later on
[16:49] <echelon> to do something more malicious
[16:49] <Jeremy_Rand> ok, so the .pac file is hosted on a non-HTTPS domain
[16:49] <echelon> yeah
[16:50] <Jeremy_Rand> wonderful, so even if the operator is legit, some random guy on your network can install whatever pac file he wants onto your browser
[16:50] <echelon> i dunno why they have to retrieve from the website anyway
[16:50] <echelon> it could've been packaged with the extension
[16:50] <Jeremy_Rand> yeah, suspicious
