It's now making daily backups to remote servers. Thanks for help ShadowOfHarbringer.

How long will this process take?

Don't worry, not long Smiley

An attacker could mess up the original file that is pulled by the backup servers, but I'm not too worried about that happening. Old backups can be stored for at least a week or two.

The server now makes daily backups automatically, but doesn't rsync them yet. Bzipped size about 50 MB.

What's wrong with WTFPL, besides the name?

BTW, I like distributing the content around a bit, especially since seems to have some stability issues lately.  Nothing personal to Satoshi, and this might allow some extra flexibility anyway for the project.

Stability problem was due to processes being killed by out of memory error. I doubled the server memory and usage stays below 50% now, so it's not a problem anymore. Still, it's good if we don't have to rely on a single server. Imagine Wikileaks having just one rackspace vps...  Tongue

The wiki was my quick choice for ease of install and it was set up before the slashdotting, when the community was way smaller. We could upgrade to MediaWiki if we wanted, but that's not very useful as we have now.

I'll look more into this next weekend. Rsync sounds good.

Distribution to multiple servers is good. What do you think, should we keep the "Documentation" wiki, or link straight to I think the wiki might become better and more complete documentation than a separately maintained documentation page.

The main site could be mirrored, but keeping the forum database in sync on multiple servers sounds difficult. Automated backups of the database to a remote location would be useful if something unexpected happens with the hosting. Any ideas how to store the backups? Maybe encrypt them and distribute to multiple servers around the world. Distributing them through a single gateway (Dropbox, Tahoe-LAFS?) would save bandwidth.

Changed it to "... based digital currency" like it is on the front page.
171  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Wikipedia Article Incubator on: December 11, 2010, 07:17:06 PM
Should the term "blockchain" be explained before it's used, or replaced with "transaction history"?

Hmm, how do you verify the integrity of banks?

In case of Bitcoin, the banks can give out wallet backups for each user to ensure they're full reserving.

I'm changing the server, might still take some time to get it running. Like a week or so. But there may be other -services soon too.

Btw, cooler bitcoin logos here.

This would make for a good Wikipedia source. Dunno if good enough for republishing the article though.

Exchangers could maybe use an international clearing service like if they accept small customers.
178  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: More forum sections needed? on: November 17, 2010, 10:32:38 AM
Should we have a "Project development" section where you can talk about organization, bounty campaigns, advertising etc.? Any other name ideas? "Workshop" or "Project organization"?
179  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: BitCoin Wikipedia page DELETED!!! on: November 11, 2010, 02:03:58 PM
nonagendamarket, I wonder where do You get all the info about new articles about bitcoin ? Do you just google bitcoin regularly, or is it something more ?

Twitter search brings up interesting stuff these days.

My suspicions are confirmed, the "bitcoin community" (at least the significant part parroting their religious economic beliefs) is just a bunch of gullible children trotting out their holy text they've been indoctrinated into. They think that pretty charts and lines represent wealth and that profit is above all and justifies anything and everything. It's this kind of useful idiots who allowed the current crisis to materialize ... but they never learn, it's a religion and not to be questioned. Independent thought? Questioning the dogma? No!, Go away heretic ... we have Ludwig von Mises to tell us the ultimate truth! Ignore the real world, quick!

It's common but very immature to call somebody an "indoctrinated religious fanatic who can't think for himself and ignores reality" because he disagrees with you in a debate. These kinds of feelings are usually the speaker's own cognitive bias. Even if you're sure that it's not just your emotional fuss from the debate, it's better to keep these kinds of thoughts for yourself as they lead the discussion in no good direction.
