Practically speaking, no.  Once all the nodes hear about your first transaction, they won't relay your second one.
How long would it take for every node to "hear" about it? What if I called my uncle Joe in Uzbekistan and he did the double-spend? Surely he's connected to different nodes, so given a higher transaction fee and a very short period between the first tx and the second, his spend might outweigh mine?
There must be some substantial time between my tx and half of the nodes in the world hearing about it, given the relay time of packets and limited network connectivity, right?

Hypothetically, if I were to send a transaction with a typo or whatever, and it had a low priority, would I be able to reverse it? For example, could I double-spend the coins involved, but with a higher T.X. fee, to an address I own?

Just wondering.

Thinking about putting up a bet about this...

This dispute will be resolved and the arguing will stop within 1 year
Since it's pretty clear at this point that both sides are entrenched and have walked in their rut so much that they can't climb out.

If I had the time, I'd analyze it more, because there's probably a minimum of 2 logical fallacies used by either side and 2 valid points which haven't been answered to Roll Eyes

Is the key the key to a bitcoin address or something else? What's to prevent someone from stealing it, taking the coins, and replacing it? What's to prevent someone from spending the bitcoins on it and keeping the paper? Transactions take time. What if I hand a paper with a bitcoin private key on it, they verify that the key corresponds to an address with X amount of money, and then I quickly spend it, since I had the private key earlier?

...Or are they not actually meant to be passed around?

enlightening tale, comrade. Do recount it anew

For small amounts of BTC and an inexperienced user (perhaps the "put-off" users), an online wallet like the one provided by blockchain.info may be better. No downloading, no verifying, no wallet.dat stealers, accessible anywhere, and you can still send your large amounts to offline storage.
2188  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: BTC For Your Opinion Round 2! on: May 30, 2012, 08:39:14 PM
FWIW

TheBitMan did send me the 0.07 BTC w/minimal hassle. He'd found a way to implement a footer on his own, and I'd just begun work on it, so I sent him what I had.

Would do business with him again.

What's a paper bitcoin?
2190  Economy / Securities / Re: [GLBSE] BDK.BND (1%/week) *CRITICAL UPDATE* on: May 30, 2012, 07:44:11 PM
There goes all of the value (highest bid is .08) of what I thought to be my most stable asset Sad
So to get this straight, you will stop paying dividends on GLBSE, and we will not continue to receive them unless we go through the manual transfer to Hermes?
If so, I believe that's a violation of the contract. I'm specifically interested in the last part:
Quote
"Contract Changes" -- The bond-issuer is not permitted to change this contract at any time under any circumstance. To "change the contract," a buyback must be placed...
But it sounds like you are not going to place a buyback Huh

As I've stated multiple times, I will still be paying dividends to GLBSE bond-holders, at least until the "hard deadline" hits which'll likely be at least 2 months out
Yes, I am talking about the "hard deadline."
Quote
I don't believe the contract states which exchange the bond must be listed on.
No, it doesn't. To clarify, I've perceived this as the upcoming sequence of events:
  • Hermes opens
  • Dividends continue to be payed on GLBSE
  • "Shift" period from GLBSE to Hermes
  • Final "hard deadline" at which point dividends are no longer paid on GLBSE. Investors who did not move their bonds to HERMES are left with nothing.
#4 violates the contract, specifically:
Quote
BDK.BND pays 1% of face value every week (Monday).
I ask mainly because I foresee a vacation (I have no problem with moving to Hermes), and hell if I'm selling out of the bond at 0.08.

Hmm, the Vanitygen executable download link doesn't seem to work, can someone reupload it please?
The post #1 sendspace link http://www.sendspace.com/file/pjgrfj seems to be working
It's been off and on for a week at least

Add more Ads! CoinAd has 8 ads, and there's more than one Bitcoin Ad program (Anon ads, operation fabulous, etc)
Also, you can allow direct advertising on your website, a "your ad here" type deal.
2194  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: BTC For Your Opinion Round 2! on: May 29, 2012, 11:52:36 PM
Well, after taking a look at your html, I can tell you're using a web-based HTML editor or an outdated version of Kompozer Wink
I can implement a footer on your site which holds the User Agreement and FAQ links, but I'm not sure I want to Tongue because it will take some time to make sense out of the code, and the change would be best if it was implemented on every page.

I'll do it for .05 BTC / page.
2195  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: BTC For Your Opinion Round 2! on: May 29, 2012, 11:42:03 PM
I will play around with the HTML a bit. Wouldn't making the ads transparent violate their TOS?

This is the first ad banner. I think it would look better to have both ad banners on the same line, i.e. side by side. Right now they just take up unnecessary space by leaving most of the line blank.

Newbies posting binaries and pushing people to download theirs and not others?
I merely have a hatred of sites which throttle and limit downloads Undecided
2199  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: I'm new to Bitcoins and can't seem to buy any... on: May 28, 2012, 02:51:20 AM
aleha, I recommend you check your browser history. Instead of a password, the unique URL you get when you visit instawallet is how you access your BTC. If that URL is in your browser history (or if you use IE, in Content.IE5\index.dat) then you can get your bitcoins back.
2200  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Vanitygen: Vanity bitcoin address generator [v0.17] on: May 28, 2012, 01:55:50 AM
Is there any mirrors for the windows binary? Original link seems to be dead.
If you'd prefer a non-throttled, non-ad-riddled, non-shit link which doesn't ask you to pay buckets of money for a "pro" account...
