I haven't been here for a long time due to transition from fresh grad to working "adult".

Anyway, I'm intrigued by the development of Paper Wallet. My question however is how do I add the address from the paper wallet to the bitcoin-qt (for when I need to spend btc - possibly need to update blocks?)

So for example, I go to https://www.bitaddress.org/ and I created a btc address, let's say xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ; along with it a private key of yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. How (if there's a way) do I add this address to the bicoin client, bitcoin-qt??
