 For the last several days I've been trying to connect to "the network" with the standard bitcoin client (0.3.20.1), but it's stuck at 0 connections, 125364 blocks.

I saw that there was a version 0.3.22 released, but I didn't think I had to upgrade to stay connected.

How can I help my poor client connect?  I've got a few coins floating around in transactions my client hasn't downloaded yet, and would like to send them somewhere else!

Upgrading to the latest version may help since the IRC bootstrapping mechanism was changed. The other standard advice is to (a) forward port 8333 in your router and/or (b) add some fallback nodes.

I know this because Tyler knows this.

hmm that port 8333 might have worked as I have 2 connections now - I also upgraded the software Smiley I suppose we'll see.

There seems to be an ongoing attack of some subtle sort disrupting connections to nodes that announce themselves via the IRC bootstrapping channel.  Look up the "bitcoin fallback nodes" on google, and use several ip addresses randomly using the following -connect=ip.address.goes.here and also use -noirc to keep your own ip address off of the irc bootstrapping channel.

"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."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
