Hi Thomas not sure if this has been already covered. Is there a known issue with unconfirmed tx? Mine has been over two hours know, each tx had at least .001 fee. I have also tried all the servers but still no joy? Has been a problem since upgrading to 1.7.2.

Cheers

Thats normal sometimes. Simply wait some time longer. I had to wait today for a big transaction with fee around 7 hours.

Please ALWAYS contact me through bitcointalk pm before sending someone coins.

I would like to know... the change addresses... will they be deleted at some point if they were used already? I only ask when sending btc from a change address and getting chargeback or dividends to that address.

Addresses are never deleted.

You can check a site like blockchain.info to see information about the transaction outside of the electrum network.

I have a problem with the languages. I use the portable windows version with the param -w "./electrum.dat". It works fine, no other files are created outside. But the lang is always english. I already set it to other languages, restartet it and changed it back and forth but it remains always english. Cant change this. I think it has something to do with electrum.dat because i use it since old versions, but i dont know how i can change it without creating it from blockchain and having to input all labels again.

Try this https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=50936.msg1490092#msg1490092


To get translations working on Windows, users can download the .zip file from http://electrum.org/download.html to extract the 'locale' folder and copy it to 'C:\Program Files\Electrum' (if you used the Windows Installer) or simply place the 'locale' folder in the same location as the Standalone Executable version of Electrum.

I keep getting the following error and transactions now are out-of-sync. I notice this started happening after an "error: status mismatch" with one of my addresses.

Code:
me@myhost:~/local/src/Electrum-1.7.2$ ./electrum
Exception in thread Thread-2:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/threading.py", line 551, in __bootstrap_inner

    if self.verify_header(header):
  File "/home/me/local/src/Electrum-1.7.2/lib/verifier.py", line 256, in verify_header
    tx_height, timestamp = item

thanks for the report; indeed that was a bug, introduced by me recently.
I fixed it in git.(commit dd630a8bb7d482cb83cc875f74baa7d6d2855ce1)

Just how safe is Electrum? I carry over 100+ coins, I'm scared I might be a sitting duck here.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I know while running regular bitcoin client, it hours to download blockchain or something, is this the same with electrum?

Thomas - has anyone drawn your attention to the fact that Electrum is re-using change addresses in the latest release.  It keeps creating new ones but seems to re-use the same one (until restarted I think).  Hence several change addresses have no transactions, and several have more than one.

It's as safe as you make it. Use a unique strong password, make sure you scan your pc for mallware and the likes. If you want to be super safe create an offline wallet.

"This thing" can be run from an USB Drive, but I wonder why you would like to do so. You don't have to download the blockchain, it's ready to go once you installed it.

Since multibit can run this as seen here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=43616.new;topicseen#new

That's why I am asking this!

I still don't understand why you want to run it from USB. Because multibit can do it too?

Tachikoma, if you did access the link that I provided leading to this, you would have took note:

https://multibit.org/help_runFromUSBDrive.html

Seeing the instruction number 5 via link above, you will note by create a file by leaving blank and saving into USB drive, will prevent saving in windows user data file.

How can you not understand this?

Now is it the same way with electrum or not?

Your link returns me to the opening topic of multibit, how do you think that's useful for me? If you have a specific question just ask it, don't make me or other people trying to help you out dive into a 64 pages thread looking for the specific paragraph you are talking about. We are volunteering our time to help you at least make it easy for us. I'm done helping you at least.

My questions were pretty clear!

I did provided you link to multibit showing you that it can run from an USB drive.
https://multibit.org/help_runFromUSBDrive.html

My question were:
Is it possible run electrum via USB drive similar to multibit? Yes or no?

Reasons:
- So my system drive wouldn't be used
- Benefit in having electrum all file store locally (USB drive)

I clearly understand we're volunteering our time but if you don't know then don't response!
Importantly: There no needs to shout multibit link isn't usefull to you as I already explained!
As of matter of fact your previous response was reported to the moderator.
Be warn!

Instructions for a portable Electrum on Windows:

  • Download the 'Standalone Executable' for Windows -> http://electrum.org/download.html
  • Create a shortcut and go to the properties, add a space and -w portable.dat, after the default in the destination field
  • Use the shortcut to run Electrum portable, you'll need to carry the shortcut, the portable.dat and the Standalone exe files in the same directory in your USB drive

You could use this portable version http://ge.tt/9YXEDNV/v/0
Never had a problem with it. (I can hear the naysayers...)

There is an official portable client. No need to grab files from random file hosters.
