1081  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

[16:42] <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

And mockup of logo on cardstock printed with spot uv.


This looks really great.

I don't really like the colored ones, but the cardstock / spot uv looks amazing.

Perhaps make a logo that looks more like the cardstock version?

Also, can you make versions with TXS instead of TX in the upper corner? (Our command line tool is 'opentxs') I'd like to have the option of using it either way.

I think I still have like .9 BTC laying around, so even though we're probably going with the other logo, I might still buy this one from you, if you are amenable to the price. It's just really cool.

And if he rotated the 'O' through 180 degrees so that the the three sector dividers formed a slopey 'T' instead of upside down ... ? I like the silver embossed card look for the open^(txs)

and they have different tx number? Is this expected behaviour?

Edit: I should say also that the automatic name_firstupdate worked and used the second TX number. I had another one that failed (I used the worng JSON syntax for the name so gui needs some error checking on this before form submission) and it showed as being completed in the TX list ... but sits there not confirming of course. I dug the rand: value out of debug.log (it shows up next to message about automatic name_firstupdate failure) and fixed it manually in debug console.

The other bounty does seem much better organized. Is there anyone currently working on this bounty who would object to pledges here being transferred to ft's "holy grail" bounty?

This is what should properly happen ... I have the feeling that the original pledgers are not around any longer though Sad

yeah, let's make this about the leaker because that really is the issue isn't it ...  Roll Eyes



I'm just wondering how a personal transaction-graph built up from all of this intercepted material is NOT a violation of 4th amendment? Doesn't that constitute a search?

I'm hosting a full namecoin node on a raid0, but still this would be nice.

The switch to LevelDB in Bitcoin 0.8 really helped... but I guess it's a lot of work.

Hopefully not too much ... since bitcoin already did it and it is open source Wink

Ummm, the facts are no-one can know the facts about these programs because they have placed themselves "legally" above scrutiny. The tech giants are legally bound to lie about any involvement so you cannot trust them and the secret court rulings on who does what are ... well secrets. The web of deceit is deep and tangled ... believe whatever 'facts' you like I guess.

Meh. He doesn't get kudos from me for being a narcissist. Nor does his pole dancing girlfriend.

I have always assumed that the govt could intercept my fone calls etc. I'd laugh if they did. They'd probably be sitting their listening to elevator music while I'm on hold with my <cell/bank/university/health/whatever> company.

If this is the price I have to pay to significantly reduce the chance my legs will be blown off, then so be it.

You're a complete idiot if you think it is about reducing the chances of "getting your legs blown off" ... and besides from 20 million to 1 down to 20.1 million to 1 ... worth it?

You don't have to assume they are intercepting your 'fone' calls ... they ARE ... everyone one of them and they are storing them in a massive database for all time. It is not that there is some snivelly little NSA Stasi guy with headphones listening to your porn calls they just store them all up and data-mine the whole lot of them for when someone decides it is your turn to be gone after ....
1094  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BitCoins for Edward Snowden. on: June 12, 2013, 07:06:27 AM
We all knew it .. doesn't make it right. They have been doing their damnedest by lying, denying, obfuscating, changing the laws and secret rulings etc to stay out of court about it.

Now they have to face the music for what are criminal actions.

They can stick their transactions graphs right up their backsides ... piss off with your snooping, who needs it in a free society?


I agree with you.
Anyone who has been reading the news has known that the NSA was monitoring transatlantic communication at the nodes of where the cables come into the US.

Also, the NSA is not looking at the actual content of our communication. They were merely creating a network graph of who talks to whom. Yes, that IS an intrusion, but they were working on the assumption that if you know who someone's friends are, you know who they are. I am interested in Bitcoin because I want to make money, and because I believe that if there is a form of currency that makes trade between individuals and small companies in different countries easier, the world will benefit.  Snowden violated his employment agreement. He also screwed his life. He made a very bad investment.

 
I guess I'm the only one that thinks this guy is a nimrod.

He throws away his life, all to tell us the profound news that the US Govt is snooping on our communications.

ROFL

Anyhow, I'll throw in a bitcoin... a bitcoin to whoever catches the rat.

Important Update:

Fixed name_firstupdate crash in GUI console, and another important bug with encrypted wallet. Upgrade highly recommended. Version 3.57

https://github.com/namecoin-qt/namecoin-qt
http://www.mediafire.com/folder/3aa8ukj7v6m5d/Namecoin-qt
(mac bin not updated atm)

Tried namecoin-qt 3.56. The basic features seems to work. I will try the 3.57 also.
So far is a good work and a great step forward in the Namecoin history.
Thank you snailbrain.
Is it intended to include the Domain registration features also or there will be two branches ?

I think it will include eventually from the sneak preview. Recall you can go to the debug window (Help --> Debug window) and console tab opens up when you can see all the rpc calls ... type help .. Smiley
1096  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BitCoins for Edward Snowden. on: June 11, 2013, 10:55:23 PM
He does not sound like a ChiCom to me:

The Guardian describes Snowden as intensely passionate about the value of privacy; his laptop displays stickers supporting internet freedom organizations including the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the Tor Project.  In the 2008 presidential election, Snowden voted for third-party candidates. He said he "believed in Obama's promises," yet "he continued with the policies of his predecessor."  For the 2012 election, political donation records indicate that he contributed to the primary campaign of Ron Paul.
So wtf was he doing at the NSA? Their sole purpose is to monitor comms.

... you must be particularly dense. His greater purpose was revealed to the world for all to see 3 days ago. Which part of that did you miss?

Without his privileged position (and years of graft) his statements would have been worthless. As they are, they pop the bubble of arrogance and cut through the thicket of laws, secret court rulings and red tape being used to cover up the govt. criminality. He is now a genuine witness to their crimes.

Keep trying to demonize the truth and you are looking worse and worse. Just think like Snowden that of all the crap you are going through in your life could actually be preparing you for a greater calling if you open your heart and mind to the truth and the good.

How do you filter a malicious program from your network if it is encrypted?

Morphological A.I. intelligence, controlled awareness of functions in a robot?

Encrypted OpenSource data processing for safe delivery from Business to Open Source Research programs, people can outsource their private research to gpu farms without need of a security provider.. wow.

Worse than that, their massive security/intelligence apparatus is exporting this crap almost as fast as they are exporting their fake paper money. They are clearly now Ground Zero for where all this rush to facism is coming from ... bullying other States into pacts of secrecy, lies, deception and illegal actions against their citizens.

There exists a classified whistle blower process.  Essentially, it allows someone inside a classified program to contact an investigative agency that has individuals cleared for access to the program.

I think you are being naive if you think such a process would have given him protection in this case. He was basically exposing systemic criminality by the intelligence agencies and you expect them to offer him protection for doing so?... Get real dude, these guys are playing for all the marbles, which is exactly what he is saying and exposed to be true.
