Isn't there currently a bacon shortage?

``<MagicalTux> Well, technically speaking it's not "lost" just yet, just temporarily unavailable"``

Interesting. Why did he put in that 'just yet' part? The sentence would have made sense without it. He makes it sound like they're dangling over a cliff waiting for rescue...

What's the difference between these two sentences:

Well, technically speaking it's not "lost" just yet, just temporarily unavailable

vs.

Well, technically speaking it's not "lost", just temporarily unavailable


What meaning is added by including 'just yet'? Is he saying the decision is out of his hands?
That's more of the same empty speech like we see on the website:
Quote
We will be closely monitoring the situation and will react accordingly.

As though they are passively waiting for the coins to be returned.

I'll look into encrypting a wallet to give to a friend or relative, for now I just wanted to make sure my Bitcoin were in 'cold storage' so I don't lose them!

thanks for the help guys!

A BIP38 backup is great to store in a safe deposit box at your bank, too. The encryption protects against theft, and the bank protects against destruction, e.g. fire damage.

No.

If your church says it is ok to manufacture and sell heroin ....

Still, in some of the southern states there's a big push to deny health care, insurance payments for birth control and abortions, etc all on the basis of religion, and they seem to be making some headway. Especially since corporations are people. A money laundering religion is rather far-fetched, but so is the denial of basic human rights...

Perhaps the allowed signature styling should change with activity score / membergroup. Like:
- Newbie: No styling (including links) allowed. Max 40 characters.
- Jr. Member: Links allowed. Max 100 characters.
- Member: Unlimited length.
- Full: Color allowed.
- Sr. Member: Size allowed
- Hero: Background color allowed

This is done, except that Newbies can use 50 characters and Jr. Members can use 150 characters. The style limitations are applied immediately, but the size limitations only apply when a signature is updated. Tell me if there are problems.

This is a wonderful improvement. Especially in combination with the activity system, which imposes post and time minimums, this should clean the forums up quite a bit.

you need to send me the Bitcoin you owe me,,,Your site is a scam / mixing service I'm surprised they haven't kicked your door in! *Lucky Ducky!*

;-)

you ready to dance?

I'm sorry, but I don't know who you are.  Why do you think I owe you coins?

You keep fearlessly slaying those trolls, dooglus. This one is remarkable in the way he manages to come off as a murderous crazy person. I do really like the line "you ready to dance?" though; is that from a movie?

The starter of a self-moderated thread deleted five of my 8-month-old replies. There are no rules concerning the effect on the payout, and I don't even know if it made my post count go down.

Help?

Try opening up the debug console and checking the output of getblockhash against some service like blockchain.info.

whats the barrier to entry? merchants?

Normally I'd say there's a network effect problem, but given the lack of competition, I bet if a reputable person started a Bitmit clone, it would gain a lot of traction. Just, nobody's done it.

Fat Tay Choon went to the Mining Academy in Brazil, east of Satoshi's yurt, where Gavin was kidnapped by the CIA's goons and forced to pretend fucking an anonymous decentralized biscuitóbetter than all the fish in the Pacific Oceanóbut also to defray leeches intelligently with ECDSA fighting qubits for 16.8 dree12, or Phinnaeus must fling toilets towards psy‐ops, without potato smoothies mixed with fried chicken wings from BitMunchies.com, urbanchickennj.com, and Popeye's Bitcoin wallet, which deleted Satoshi's premine ability to cheer very victoriously, none like Butterfly Labs better enabled, but also Pirate crashing AIR applications without the express use of interest-free scams, conspiring with fraudulent sockpuppets and PPTs and..., you troll-herding piece of Shiitake mushroom, go lick Goat's horns until Theymos admits to having a quite erotic fetish involving honey badgers wearing thongs composed of soggy burlap waffles dangling from cosmic linoleum-based iphones running quantum chips explodes spewing deadly acid! b!z screamed out "Light is bright like...like... stars." When Markjamrobin opens the isolated window, he sees three pigs together in bed. Kouye and myself laugh when chinese food falls the impact kills Obama Bin ladin whoever thinks he may be terrorist, is correct but hates the bitcoin logo. Earth has snakes. Currently, the other species have decimated to tiny groups called "marko solo" whatever time it all comes and ends? However, Bitcoin's acidity level dipped causing catastrophic double-spends!

Meanwhile, AntiOps was confused by the awkward change to his penis melting uncontrollably. Vanilla Ice perfume spritzed onto cheese and greasy slime covered with babies boiled in a smelly old heatsink. But it tasted like shit therefore it poisoned his blood although he did survive. Reproductive organisms attacked the internal testicle which caused terrible congestion somehow. Evolution then terminated the smelly old business thank the inability of AntiOps to lock Satoshi's thread. In a transactional forum there was a debate about hacking unprotected accounts, however the debate shortly ended.

Phinnaeus Gage, king pluto, duke of the people. Returned one of his loans that he fraudulently claimed without declaring intentionally. Although this was bullshit. Earth was hit by a meteor which cause catastrophic events which cause people to cause mass destruction by proxy voting it was documented recently on the news that oranges are disguised anti-gravity pockets which have giant bears attacked Zeus because bitcoin accidentally crashed to Mars which created spaceships and aliens who pretended being humans wearing hats on their toes. Can

Altcoin suck on apples and oranges too. Megacoin is the most shit sucker of apples and  melons ever. Most people love to troll others. Evolution is a slow process which created forks. It is beneficial to wash your feet because it distributes bacteria and oil, notwithstanding the beneficial attributes which are how chocolate arouses some of the miners brains. Today was an abysmal event which caused many abnormal but not smart bitcoiners because many of them are cute animals who were insane because of excessive oreo consumption. One watermelon is not love how people try me explotation Maybe Heisenberg Breaking bad control guy director or masturbation my time vampire drinks urine not lemon tek and water supernatural.

LEALANA is fat looking because pizza is sour with pickles which are sexy and never rot. So many people eat pizza it's unbelievable. The news said that pizza is bought mainly with anchovies which results in big wet weather which had massive gusts of wind with pouring milk down on everyones throat because it feels great! Although honey is very sweet taste it makes when it is served hot it melts softly but slowly.
The universe is populated with many planets which were destroyed by Taras. Cyborgs then warped to the zoo and ate mushroom with a aerospace technician. Bitcoin has used a lot resources from peoples although people smell like melons.

Ipods suck. Androids rule. Altcoins also suck peanuts. Bitcoin is the greatest idea that has ever been created by man although litecoin sucks? Once upon a time Gandalf went to wal-mart to dry her hair. Minecraft is the best game in universe because chickens cluck. 231134421 is one crazy big ass monkey. What is with people posting replies still. Terraria is a crazy game which requires extreme concentration. This can result in health cubes; Parentheses are a pain in the brain. This noodle is disgusting. Although spaceships cry waterfalls they are magical little elves. Golden towns is very annoying and smell like bacon. Celebrities are awesome and smart. But, evolution taught us that butterflys are ugly.

Vitamin D is important to scam Taras and raise taxes which would cause the world to go crazy but not insane. Obama is the president now. Alot of gamers will illustrate sony that nintendo is leading the infiltration of Iran. Microsoft Windows was salivating pedophiles of the coastal farts. Yet the banana shrank. What was doge poo doing under the bridge with bridge cleaner?

He was just he's aren't because something something different like seems incorrect, because we fucked. Yet prunes prunes are very bad lad's yet unknown to fuckers SWEARING. Banana monkey is not

Note the 21 million BTC risked ratings sent and received by CrazyRabbi. Anyone leaving those should be banned or their trust ratings deleted at least, as long as that many BTC don't yet exist.

Well, I'd note that it's possible to risk or steal more capital than exists in BTC, but CrazyRabbi's ratings certainly don't seem to be legitimate anyhow.

Dooglus should write a script with a basic GUI that would correctly disperse funds if given the paper wallet keys and internet access, and store it on an offline laptop. Then, he can tell several people he knows in real life, "If I die, there's a laptop in my room with a number taped to the top. Turn on the laptop and type in the number."

And that number would be a password? What's the point of having a password when it's taped next to possible place of use, why just not leave it without a password, lol?
The number is the private key. The point is to keep it airgapped until his death.

I still can't believe what I'm reading: The private key is safer in the envelope on the piece of paper, than typed in the turned-off computer to witch that envelop is tapped to?!?!?

Assuming you are $30,000,000 sure that the computer will not connect to the internet while you're doing the initial typing-in, go right ahead.

As for a cronjob, now you're opening yourself up to remote exploits, defeating the whole point of a paper wallet.

This is one of the most consistent paying campaign, and getting in seem to be harder than the Playboy mansion Grin

I have kept on the sig for free as a place holder, maybe I will become an active payee in March (I was not sure if I can hit 50 posts - I don't want to post just for the heck of it).

You need to remove all the other paid ads in there.
