Any clues why this might be?

What has changed since then is that I uninstalled Bitcoin and reinstalled it in a new location (USB drive). But Bitcoin has been running for several minutes since then without a single (re)confirmation, and only 1 connection. What gives?

Try restarting the client with the -addnode= switch and an IP address of one of the fallback nodes.  I suspect there is an attack underway against the p2p network itself, or the IRC bootstrapping method.  Your not the first to mention weirdness.

"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."

Doesn't appear to be working. Should I just keep adding more nodes?

Use -noirc and -connect=ipaddress instead.  This will connect you to only the ip address of the node you specify and not announce your address to the irc bootstrapping channel.  You can use up to 8 -connect= switches.

This echos the results of another user who did the same using the first eight of the published fallback nodes.  Is this what you did?  This means that three of the eight fallback nodes have been knocked of the Internet.

Are teh connections that you are getting, are they working?

Yes to the first question, no to the second.

I'll have to deal with this tomorrow. Bedtime now.

Maybe the downloaded blocks didn't carry with confirmed blocks? It will be fixed by the time you wake up  Grin Automagically....

Stop the client, let it finish up, then restart it from the command line with the -rescan switch.

Same thing, stuck at 5 connections, no confirmations. Oh, and the client isn't picking up my most recent credit of .5 BTC.

I don't think you mentioned copying the backed up wallet.dat into the new wallet directory. I'm assuming you did that. What block number are on for downloading? It should be over 129913.

Okay, here's what happened in detail.

I installed Bitcoin on C:/ with a normal installation. I made several transactions to and from the address generated by that original wallet.

Later I decided I wanted to run Bitcoin exclusively from a flash drive for security's sake. I copied the files from the data folder in Windows' Application Data, including the wallet, and pasted it in the Bitcoin folder on the flash drive.

Since then I have been running Bitcoin with the switch -datadir=[folder on flash drive] from a shortcut.

After the trouble started I uninstalled Bitcoin and installed the newer version of the client, saving only my wallet and the shortcut.

Currently, I'm running the program with the switches -datadir and -rescan. It's sitting on 8 connections and 114138 blocks. It's adding blocks VERY slowly, but the connections haven't changed in about an hour.

Ok, wait for the blocks to finish downloading and we'll see if that works.

Is it downloading at all? Check blockexplorer.com to see what latest block is. I think it could be going slow because of all the new users.
