621  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: [b]HELP!!! 120 BTC stuck in LTC account on BTC-e.com $10,000 :([/b] on: April 20, 2013, 06:45:04 AM
Has it confirmed yet? If so, how many confirms?

this is a bitcoin address that you sent your bitcoins to. It's most probably an address to which you don't have a private key. so you lost your 120 bitcoins...

Bolding because everyone seems to be ignoring me

BTC-e has the private key to that address. They just need to type dumpprivkey on their terracoind.


+1

TRC and BTC share the same address's so a TRC Priv Key can be used to generate the same BTC address. Get that TRC Priv Key from btc-e as TradeFortress has said, and you'll be fine. Or, get them to just sweep that address and credit the 120 BTC to you btc-e account!

+1

THIS!

If they don't credit those bitcoins for you, there might be 2 reasons:
1. They don't understand the situation described above (namely, if they have the privkey for the TRC address, they also have the privkey for the corresponding BTC address).
2. They don't want to help you, they'd rather steal that BTC.

Just send them another ticket/request pointing them to this forum thread.
If they still don't help, ask again harder.
If they still don't help, it can be deduced that they aren't acting in good belief.
Then speak up, file a scam report on the forum, ruin their reputation.
Then we'll add another exchange site to our avoid list.

blockchain.info store your encrypted wallet on their servers, and send you javascript and the encrypted wallet when you want to access it. To prevent from JS hijacking, a browser extension is available. However, secure your wallet with 2 Factor Authentication or a REALLY REALLY strong password - as 108 BTC was recently stolen from users' wallets (including mine  Cry) Blockchain DO NOT keep unencrypted private keys or passwords, it's all done client side - therefore, it's impossible for someone at blockchain to access the wallets (without guessing the password, which is a risk anyhoo)
In their own words:
Quote from: blockchain.info
Where is my wallet stored?
We use MySQL Cluster to store your wallet data. Upon creation your wallet is synchronously saved on at least 2 separate privately owned servers. Our servers are located in a locked cabinet at a datacenter with a dedicated security guard. Every 24 hours a database backup is saved to an off site location.
If by chance you do happen to make a reasonable amount of BTC, create a Paper Wallet. I use this for my new 1.2 BTC and I have not been hacked since! And yes, you can send coins without compromising the security of the wallet - blockchain lets you do this as normal, while asking for the private key to be scanned or typed in.

And if you happen to appreciate the time taken for that big hunk of text, my BTC address is down there Smiley

Here's the real question:

Does it have a built in porting feature that can pull from SMF?  Without that it would be a lot harder to switch.
Sure coding one would work! Tongue
624  Other / Meta / Re: WTB - Want to Buy Section on: April 19, 2013, 04:18:16 PM
Oh yes, like that's helpful. Every time I searched, I didn't find what I was looking for without some serious searching.
625  Other / Meta / [DENIED] Discourse! (Ruby Open Source Forum) on: April 19, 2013, 04:16:23 PM

I've seen a few people liking the idea of the Discourse forum software...
It would surely beat SMF, and be easier to write extensions for (uses Ruby).
Also, this forum looks pants.  Tongue (well, that is, compared to Discourse)

Quote from: Discourse.org
The Problem
The state of forums has been unchanged for so long that forums are considered unworkable and undesirable; few sites want forums any more because the software is so poor. The idea of free, unfettered online forums that anyone can “fork” and install is actually under threat. The dystopian future of company towns for all human discussion is all too real, because forum software is its own worst enemy at this point.

Most people, if pressured, can name at least one blog platform. But can they name even one single forum platform? Forums have had no champion that we know of. Even the better forum software is almost exclusively 100% for-pay closed source (although a rare few offer crippled open source versions), and all based on ancient, legacy PHP/MySQL code bases. (see, theymos? Wink)

The freedom to easily one-click install and run a decent forum software for a topic you love is an essential part of the wild, chaotic, vibrant “let your freak flag fly” formula of the Internet that we've always known and loved.

Forums may not be sexy, but they are a fundamental building block of all online community, and they reliably produce useful search artifacts even today. It is a testament to the power of these communities that they are thriving despite the primitive state of forum software.

Today's forums are smart people trapped in bad software.


ADVANTAGES:

- Working search  Cool
- Flowing discussion
- Looks great!

Please add any and all comments/+1's/criticisms, and hopefully we can replace this old dinosaur and get some easier, prettier forum software for a better future.  Wink Oh, and DON'T QUOTE THIS - that picture will clog the postlog (another reason to get Discourse Tongue)

Now that Logik's API is here, everybody starts piggybacking off it. Sigh...

How did you lose all your BTC? Huh
Bad password.

You know what? There's this lovely Vanity Pool which can fix your problems.

Well, mine was hacked, losing 1 bitcoin. USE TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION!

What was your password? Do you use Windows?
I would never! Completely clean Ubuntu computer. 'Twas a big 108 BTC major hack - others were affected. I only lost 1.2 however. Now I use 2FA and a paper wallet for my new Bitcoin Smiley

632  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Confirmation Request Thread on: April 17, 2013, 03:36:50 PM
Let's make a thread for people to submit unconfirmed tx's with no fee for miners to include in a block.
Please include:
  • Tx hash (linked to blockchain.info)
  • Network propagation
  • IP of relayer

I'll start:

Propagation: 2% - 17 Nodes - (Very Poor) as of 17 April 2013 17:38 GMT (Yes, I KNOW this won't get confirmed. Still...)

Wow, whiskers... how did THAT happen?
Well, my password wasn't strong enough, but now I know better and use 2 factor auth.  Wink And guess what? You made the 400th post in this thread! Congrats! (I don't know why that's a big deal, but whatever) Smiley

30 mhash/s? Won't get that much nowadays with bitcoin - unless you mine litecoin or use p2pool.
635  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Safest storage for bitcoins? on: April 17, 2013, 08:05:30 AM
There was just a big 108 BTC hack of that site (me affected as well). If you use it, it is imperative that you enable 2 factor authentication of any sort.

That depends on the rules of the pool, but as far as I know most of the popular pools don't offer any sort of bonus to anyone lucky enough to have been the one that found the necessary nonce.

yeah, you almost don't want to know, because it's sort of like "hey, I COULD have had 25BTC" Sad

Actually, you couldn't: the rest of the pool is contributing by finding incorrect solutions - thus increasing your chance of finding a correct solution. Tongue

*sighs* can't mine...

HOW did you "import your wallet"? Pywallet? Bitcoin RPC Sync?
And a heads up- Enable 2 Factor Authentication on your blockchain account. Mine recently got hacked and I lost my precious bitcoins  Cry

How did that happen?

Not strong enough password, I guess. Sad That day, ~120 BTC was stolen from users of blockchain.info. (!) Now I got my Google Authenticator enabled Smiley

Well, if this ever makes its way into an implementation, it'll at least be better than starting yet another cryptocoin... Wink
