Tell a lie... actually the block chain is on the hdd!

Have an SSD, and i7 processor 16GB ram. Still takes a up to a week.

The issue with windows updates it that it indiscriminately resets the machine when it feels like it, before the client has time to shut down properly. corrupts the block chain which then needs re-indexing.

The very latest v0.10.0.

I wouldn't mind if I just needed to re-index a few weeks or something, but every time it's the full 6+ years!

The 3rd in a couple of months and it's getting to be a right pain in the ass as it takes a week to re-scan everything!

How do I configure the core to survive this sort of thing?

Also got this, but I don't think I registered on coinbase. The email doesn't mention my name though, just repeats my email address.

Just thought I'd mention...
Used Giftoff.com yesterday for quite a sizeable Amazon voucher and it all seems to have gone through fine and quickly.

Website is a little buggy though. When I registered it took me back to the registration page and not a confirmation page, and the confirmation email took some time to arrive.

Would really love to make it out of my mum's basement.

Currently drinking red wine. In a restaurant.

Yeah, I'm not terribly involved with those around me.

Move all but 5 BTC to my hardware now Smiley

Also, while your logo is very nice, is there other information you could put on the screen? Balance, maybe?

TREZOR does not know the balance because it's offline. Also computing the balance is not trivial operation and you would need to stream a lot of data into the TREZOR so it could verify the balance correctness.
And showing balance without checking if it's correct does not make sense.

I would suggest then you could add a simple message protocol... the trezor could be sent short strings to be displayed on screen from the bridge software.
Just an idea.

Also, that massive long fingerprint we should compare... Maybe a bit much.
Perhaps have an abridged version and the full-length available for the paranoid at a press of a button?

I see there's a firmware update and I've had a quick look in this thread but no mention of it. Would be nice to have confirmation, maybe in the first post, of the latest version.

Love that you can plug it in any computer and use it without having to log in to anything Smiley

For long term storage and large amounts, please use an offline computer or paper wallets with proper backups.

Ok, so are you admitting that is still less safe than a offline pc?
An offline PC is less safe than a paper wallet... So what?

Are you sure about that?

A secure paper wallet will be generated with an offline PC, but you also need a secure printer...

Yes.

If you're paranoid to the point of worrying about a printer, why can't you write the keys down, or destroy the printer?

I've seen PC power supplies blow up. I've had HDDs die on me many times. I've had processor s fried, mother boards stop working... I've never witnessed a piece of paper spontaneously vapourise.

So yes.

What's your point caller?

It's more useful then a computer never connected to the internet, and more secure than my phone

I called mine Walter Smiley
