If you start to use QE/FRB like terms like SW, LN, SC, then you are getting more and more close to Federal Reserve way of working, trying to confuse people with strange terms so that they don't understand what is going on
A fine case of personal incredulity. Just because you are cognitively limited and can't understand those concept that does not mean that they are confusing/bad/similar to FED or whatever nonsense you're going to spit up next. People with relevant degrees (yours is not) understand the underlying infrastructure and code. Various experts have and will review these technologies. Lightning Network and Sidechains are the way to scale Bitcoin unless someone comes up with something better. Scaling via the block size is inferior.


I do wonder when your contract ends.

I used to manage thousands of these so called experts, they just can master computer language like 000101010100000101111, but it doesn't mean they can think better than others. Just like you don't understand chinese/japanese does not make you less intelligent than chinese/japanese people

Very bad analogy. You're comparing a computer language to a human language. Learning another language is pretty much useless (aside from being able to communicate with more people). With computer languages the possibilities are 'infinite' (limited by imagination, skill and the technology though). Apparently you think that CS majors are only about computer languages, which is very wrong.

People usually worship something they don't understand. I recommend you read some fundamental computer knowledge, that battery, wire and bubble experiment is a good start, then followed by "from nand to tetris". Even a teenager can build a computer using 3000 components, it is not rocket science, far from it, just layers and layers of translation

I don't need to. There are better ways to learn boolean algebra than "from nand to tetris". I've yet to see how this is related to the OP.

Even if we had very good solutions to deploy right now, there is no way to implement those upgrades within 3 days via soft/hard fork without causing losses. Albeit one could argue that if the miners really wanted it you could push a soft fork really quickly (so far, it took weeks to activate one), but this is not the case with a hard fork (as everyone matters). There is no way of solving it in such a small amount of time without causing significant loses/confusion/chaos.

So 1 wire = 1 component, good to know. Roll Eyes Stop with the nonsense. It's quite easy to spot the people who won't admit that they're wrong. You're not even trying hard enough.
Again, how is this relevant to OP? Because it isn't.

Bitcoin wasn't created and intended for only rich people... it was created and intended to allow people to be their own banks and freedom of the Fed.  To say that the only people who can "vote", in a sense, are the people who have acquired the most capital during these years Bitcoin has been around is seriously fucked up.  Also, miners doesn't really seem to "vote" with their hashing power and distribution of nodes... they "vote" by bitching and complaining and holding threats over the Bitcoin community that they will just shut it all down if they don't get their way or reach a compromise... at least that's what I'm understanding from this whole situation, I could very well be wrong... but the whole idea of this type of small group of people/miners making decisions about what should happen with block sizes and all pisses me off just as much as a small group of men in the Fed making crucial decision that will change the whole economy for all of us "ignorant civilians" that can't make a decision for our selves. 


This is always a valid concern since banks can always print billions of dollars and build thousands of farms and take over 90% of hash power. But I think in the end, people have a choice in selecting which version of software they run, bank can not force bitcoin on you like they did with fiat money. So it is ultimately decided by the people's awareness of the code that they run

In another word, if you understand the candidate you can make better decision, obviously that is not even possible for presidential election  Grin

Sorry that wasn't clear:
What if the block size debate had to be solved in ~3 days or less?    ...implementation is ASAP.

You're asking a very tough question. Nobody in this world can tell you the right solution nor is there a perfect solution. I'd say the only thing that we could decide to do within 3 days (16/02/2016) is a HF to raise the block size. However, I'd say a 1.5MB block size limit with the 'workaround' that Gavin used in order to prevent blocks that take too long to validate. Albeit, this is where thingss becomes tricky. You can't rush a HF and choosing a grace period that is too short could cause a negative effect. Even Garzik said that the minimum grace period should be 3 to 6 months. By this time Segwit would be ready for deployment. One could add a HF as a backup plan if Segwit fails to deliver on time, however the developers are certain that everything will be properly coded and tested in time.


Tl;dr: I'd say that you just can't solve it in '3 days' and especially not right now. If you had asked me this 1 year earlier, then raising the block size limit would be my final answer (most likely).

maybe Bit_happy should have said 7 days..  because i dont think Lauda realises that 1000 blocks is just 7 days..

i said it ages ago 10,000 block trigger(70 days) PLUS X months grace period for the remaining 25% laggers to finally move over seems better than 7days+28
