Ok, Mc_Lovin is not the greatest communicator there is on the forum. He seems to be awfully busy. I am still waiting for him to discuss payment and development issue.

I don't have much motivation to work on this project without until all these issues are discussed, especially payment.

Coinbase is not a media source.

Fairly neutral indeed, but still a considerable amount of just false information about bitcoin.
Specially in an analysis like this you just can't make even small mistakes imho.

False information are the enemy of adaption to obstacles and adversaries.

An interesting and mostly surprisingly objective paper. Almost unbelievable, this, coming from banksters.

Perhaps, those banksters are not so evil you thought?

As always, sensational headline.

No. SMF is OK, so I'm not in a big hurry to replace it. I'll give this job to someone when I'm satisfied that they will do it perfectly.

Which means nobody will!

Pretty fluffy piece ... the way the masses like their news these days by all accounts (could have thrown in reference to Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Charlie Sheen, etc something for a broader appeal).

What i did get a kick out of was the clip that come up on the scroll bar of related clips next to it ...  Cheesy seriously funny (i'm a matrix fan.)

Mr. Andresen!

The mass, or  too much information to digest?

2. Don't banks in the US use two factor authentication?


Nonsense, an American bank probably don't even know what 2 factor authentication is.
389  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Something better than Operation Fabulous? on: October 27, 2012, 01:35:22 PM

what will you use?

I really dig python for pretty much everything. Much easier to develop securely than with say php.



Ruby on Rails, coffeescript, haml, bootstrap, and all that yummy alphabets.

Good news, folk. I convinced the owner to develop a clone using supported technologies.

In other words: You're trying to fix what ain't broken. lol

We ain't destroying opfab's current codebase just yet. We're just letting it sit while we develop a clone that's written in standard tech.

Yes, I absolutely recognize that this is the last choice that any developers would do in my shoe.
391  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Something better than Operation Fabulous? on: October 27, 2012, 12:39:47 AM
Why don t you start a github repository and let people contribute to improve things ?

Even if I want to, I don't think mc_lovin likes the idea.

(Competition versus benefit of contribution plus the thorny issue of how to compensate contributors)

The only question is how long it will takes.

I've long held the opinion that Bitcoin is not just financial insurance, it is a form of health insurance.

Odds are high that at some point late in our lives, some of us will need access to medicines/organs/procedures deemed either untested, illegal, or with limited supply.  And so Bitcoins will be needed for speedy procurement.  Silk Road is the recreational tip of what will probably become a much larger black market in health goods & services.



And they will be like:

THE RICH IS USING BLACK MARKET SERVICES while the poor are stuck using crappy health service provided by the government.

There are two methods, the "instant" method requires that you provide username and password (and PIN, if needed) to your bank account.


Guess what everyone is going to choose? The instant method.
395  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Coinbase Blog - Buy And Sell Bitcoin By Connecting Any U.S. Bank Account on: October 26, 2012, 07:04:20 PM
This is a bad idea. Coinbase is asking for your password when it want to access your bank account. Do not use!

Freedom allows scammers to peddle their wares, but freedom also allows legit types to peddle their wares too.

The vast majority of bitcoin transactions is going to be positive, so I believe the cost of freedom is justified.
397  Economy / Services / Re: Looking for someone to create/modify software for this forum [3600+ BTC] on: October 26, 2012, 01:10:09 PM
Ummm is this going to happen this century?  Huh

Nope.

I'm wary of this as well, which is one of the reasons I'm hesitant to ever make a guarantee to users unless I have insurance for all the funds.  Maybe BitVPS.com can convince us otherwise?

Instead of managing users' fund, just use your money. For example, if you could only risk 1 BTC, than only keep a cold wallet deposit of only 1 BTC. That way if the VPS get robbed, you lose your 1 BTC instead of the customers' money.
