ok so maybe I am a total noob at this, no I am a total noob, however I have something going on what has me puzzled.

Running the latest client I sent BT's to another user. I copied and pasted his code and checked it then hit Send. When I look at the Bitcoin client I see an entirely different code. I do this again, and again verify the entire code and again once I hit send the code in the client is completely different.

Is this by design as in private and public key or has my client in some way been hacked?

Says no and I've also sent to MtGox and after over 24 hours they still show no balance and again when I check the code doesn't appear to be the one I entered.

I kind of figured out to ask Wink

Next option is to load another address on one of my other PC's and try sending to myself I guess.

The transaction process seems very flawed. No real confirmation, no way to cancel.
In order not to waste your precious Bitcoins start the client with the -testnet option, that way you'll use a different network, and you'll be able to test between two testnet nodes. Just to limit your losses Cheesy

Could you post the address you are sending to and the address that shows up in the transaction log?

The no-cancel is by design, the transaction being broadcast in the network we cannot guarantee that a cancel will reach an eventual block generator that includes it into its block.
