Yes, land of the slow internet.

I suppose I look upside down to you?

Why the heck are people holding ßtc funds in online accounts?
I just dont get it.....

like maybe if "my comp burned out so now im on my lappy and i didnt loose my wallet.dat HAR HAR"
But my wallets on many frequent backups so I unno

Plenty of reasons. Access to my wallet wherever there is an internet connection. No needing to backup the wallet. In person transactions with my smartphone. Instant transactions from mybitcoin user to user, instead of waiting for confirmations, making this one of the best options for in-person trades. Email notifications of incoming payments. If necessary, secure access to my wallet (TOR, I2P) without needing to install bitcoin to my computer.

I wouldn't store very large amounts on the site, but for small transactions it's great to have an online wallet.

I use Mybitcoin.com because it has most of the pros of paypal, but if they were to try some of the things that paypal has done, the mass exodus of the userbase would punish them severely.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

So did we ever receive word about what these so called vulnerabilities were? Also, while I'm thinking about it, would anyone else be interested in an additional online wallet to compete with myBitcoin?

It hasn't been the promised week, yet. Wait until tonight/tomorrow night (Sunday).

Whoever runs mybitcoin has been missing for far longer than four or five days.
I sent them a message on May 24th, and got an answer on May 29th. So, they are not "missing". Wink

would anyone else be interested in an additional online wallet to compete with myBitcoin?
Yes, definitely.

Yes. One with (optional) fund insurance would be nice too.

Maybe he is talking about the XSS vulnerability on the payment page. If I recall correctly I was able to send code to it.
