Running a full Bitcoin-qt node on my desktop (which also happens to mine 24/7), but store my funds in an Electrum wallet on my notebook. That'll probably get more more rust as I slowly get a finite amount of BTC, however.

I have a blockchain.info wallet, and instawallet, and a BitCoin-QT on my computer.  I am still waiting on the first sync with QT, after installing a few days ago.

I like the ease of instawallet, but the blockchain.inf wallet seems a bit better, has a decent API and more features.

I'm going to play with all 3 for a while until I decide on one that I like the best.

I use Bitcoin-QT so I can support the network with a full node

Blockchain.info wallet comes in handy for mobile payments and in-person transactions. 

Paper wallet for long term storage.

No matter what your main client is, I think people should run Bitcoin-QT to support the network!

As more people come on board I imagine we will need more nodes.
Hopefully some more big servers will be set up to take the load.

bitcoind. it uses much less memory and cpu.
Good point man, did you compare all of them?

Being resource wise is essential these days.

Though the storage space is one extra parameter to consider..

I use blockchain.info but with the bulk of my bitcoins stored in a brainwallet (address as a watch only).
I also keep the blockchain up to date on the Satoshi client because I want to contribute to the network

At first I started using BitcoinQT, for about one year. Then I switched to Electrum because I got tired of updating the blockchain. When you were not online for a few days it took some time to do so...
And by the current growth of the blockchain it might even take longer in the future.

As I understand it, just being a node really doesn't have any significant impact at this point. If your not mining, there's not much of a point in being a node. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

I'm liking Armory for the offline feature but I originally found it searching for deterministic wallet hoping to find one where I could use my own seed so I don't have to write it down.

Is there a client that can generate a wallet from a specified seed? The length of the seed doesn't matter but I want to be able to generate it from an ASCII string of a the required length. I have memorised an algorithm that I use to generate any length of string so I don't have to remember a long phrase or write it down.

Ive found electrum to be pretty neat, no need for storing and updating multiple wallets, no need to leave the computer on for days updating the blockchain, and if you lose your wallet you can get it back by typing in a string of random words that are easy to write down.

Online wallets make me nervous.
