I'm Pretty sure in 20 years my children will have a chapter in their economics textbook entitled "laszlos' Pizza" and "Satoshi dice spam traffic?"

They do.. it's called the Bitcoin Pizza Index

http://www.ounce.me

There's even an RSS feed dedicated to it.


The reverse is the true measure of Bitcoin value: how many pizzas can be bought with one bitcoin?

Maybe we're just getting started.



Or maybe not. I think I'll go draw some lines and question marks on a graph.

Well, he engraved most of it into the ring. To add a little extra security, Shrem had his father leave out one of the digits from the private key. Thatís stored in Shremís head ó and only his head.
base58 wallet format is 52 characters long. One of those is the preceding 5. Drop one of them from somewhere in the string. Now you have 52 possible locations to add one of 58 digits. I'm afraid 3016 possible private keys is a tiny number, and could be brute-forced inside of a second.

Good luck with that.

I wonder why the major walls only happen during 5 days of the week.
Bitcoin may never sleep, but banks have a tendency to do so.

The 1.6.2 upgrade notification definitely works.

I have problem though.  I'm on the windows version and whenever I open my wallet I also get a separate console window.  If I close it, my wallet closes as well.

This is intended for now. Enabling that console windows makes it so Electrum can accept command line options; without that window it won't accept it and things like portable mode or opening an other wallet are not possible.
That sounds strange... I've written and used several Windows programs that accept command-line options without a console window. From where does this constraint stem? Are you calling AllocConsole()?

It is a result of PyInstaller what is currently used to build the windows packages. If you disable the console it won't accept command line arguments. If you have more experience in such methods please check out the build scripts and see if you can help us improve the windows packages.
Interesting. I've never used PyInstaller but I'll see what I can do.

Another check arrived Smiley Now 5-for-5 on flawless sales.
Keep up the good work.

I've transferred many times right to my bank via ACH and has always worked out great. Sorry if I'm prying, I'm just curious, why are you requesting a check when you can DD via ACH? Privacy?
I don't really know. It seemed like the easiest option at the time of my first sale, and now it's just inertia: my details are already in the system. I don't plan on fixing what's not broken, either Tongue

Also something unrelated: I'm pretty sure that this address doesn't have a 60BTC balance. https://blockchain.info/address/1Pxbqi5UnkdiVp7VNq1Ej7n4FtMrKKEvvY

My wallet suddenly shows an extra 60BTC because of this address even though that address shows no recent transactions.

https://blockexplorer.com/address/1Pxbqi5UnkdiVp7VNq1Ej7n4FtMrKKEvvY
Blockexplorer.com disagrees with blockchain.info.
Those 60 BTC were already spent almost 2 years ago.


Another example of buggy amounts would be my address here:

http://blockexplorer.com/address/1NB1KFnFqnP3WSDZQrWV3pfmph5fWRyadz
http://blockchain.info/address/1NB1KFnFqnP3WSDZQrWV3pfmph5fWRyadz

There's actually only 101.57898746 in it, although Blockchain.info says I have 102.33498746 BTC in it.

Oi, how'd you get that bar across the top?

It is an alternative "medium-weight" Bitcoin client for Windows

Do you have plans to make it available for any other operating systems?

Does this prune all spent outputs?
857  Bitcoin / Press / Re: 2013-03-14 New Statesman: Bitcoin: This is What a Bubble Looks Like on: March 16, 2013, 01:21:50 AM
Oh, let it be true!  I don't even care that this guy is ignorant about Bitcoin, just let this be a bubble!  If it pops, it would drop back into a price range that I could buy more!

Wishful thinking, hein? Grin

Probably.  The last coins that I bought, I was whining that I had to pay $14 apiece for them.  Now I'd buy 20 or more for double that rate.  I have a nephew that I told about bitcoin years ago, and for a time he was mining on his laptop in the days before the rise of GPU's.  He succeeded in finding three blocks, but because this was also before the automatic encryption of wallet.dat files and he was running windows on an insecure machine, I convinced him to copy his wallet.dat file to a thumbdrive and reinstall over his current client.  He did this and eventually got tired of it all, and stopped mining.  The other day, I asked him if he wanted to sell any of his bitcoins, as I was running low (I actually buy things with them, and have not paid for my cell service in any other way in over a year).  He said, "oh, that.  I lost that drive." 

YOU LOST IT?!
Wow.

I have a quick question, when I'm selling my bitcoins via the site you are buying them at a lower price then what is the current rate, I just was curious, this is how you guys make money and stay in business right? I'm just curious as to how that buy number is calculated. I would assume it is a certain percentage of the current rate, right? Seriously, I'm just curious about it, that's all.


Somewhere TC mentions that it's based on multiple factors including market price, volatility, etc. They've traded at a loss in the past, but usually manage to make profitable trades, and they try not to be long too much BTC.
