R.I.P HAL Sad Without Satoshi , Without HAL and the early contributors to Crypto and Bitcoin , we would not see what Bitcoin is today or maybe never see a Bitcoin or ever know of it.
We should have utmost respect and dedication for these great men and continue their legacy and their dreams of a future ruled by decentralization and cryptocurrencies.

Isn't it odd [very odd] that a brilliant inquisitive mind like Hal's [Harold Thomas Finney II] never launched at least an experimental alt-coin if not a better coin than Bitcoin?  You know, at least for the purpose of finding out what would happen when Bitcoin fully matures in 100+ years.

Cause one thing about highly logic centered people is a powerful curiosity begging the question:  What if?

How could none of these brilliant programmers like Hal, Gavin, Nick Szabo, etc., not wonder this and launch an alt-coin to find out?

Now if we could only find one coin who's dev's name is either Hal [Harold] or Thomas or Finney.  lol

Wait, I found one.  And it's the very first and oldest Bitcoin clone, designed to fully mature in just ~4 years instead of over 100 years.  And this name, Thomas Nasakioto is also an anagram, an identical mirror twin for Satoshi Nakamoto.


Cheers!

I suppose this is the most appropriate thread for this... I had a dream inspired by Hal.

There was a cryogenics corporation which went around trying to dig up fresh bodies - or where a privatized police force does this in the future. When it's possible to unfreeze people where they're alive without tormenting pain, they'd then be given living quarters and a job, working as indentured servants to pay off their bill. However, the company charged a 5% APR on unpaid fees each year (very reasonable!). When people started "being woken up" a century later (and with appropriate cybernetic implants!), they'd end up with the equivalent of >$1M today's dollars in debt, working the rest of their lives as Huh.

... I wonder what people will do in a century.... will have to sleep on it for the dystopian vision. Cheesy

I had seen this thread before he died, and I had tried to PM him in late 2013 (and again in 2014) to tell him about alternative treatments I was trying. He didn't reply.  At that time, I hadn't yet mastered the treatment regimen I am employing now.

I have since learned that Multiple Sclerosis (don't know how much it is related to Hal's A.L.S.) is related to other manifestations of neuropathy is some general ways even if the disease itself is fundamentally different.

EGCG has made the biggest difference for me thus far (and for another guy suffering similar ailments as me).

I am awaiting the co-ezymated B-12 to arrive from abroad. That is crucial for protecting the neuron axon sheaths that are destroyed by MS. I don't have MS, I don't think, but I do have many symptoms similar to those described by talk show host Montel Williams.

I wish Hal could have been saved. What a fabulous mind inside of a incredibly humble person. Some of his technical explanations have helped me. He took the time to explain so that someone learning could grasp.

Incidentally, I welcome your new persona/attitude. You 'sound' healthier, if that makes any sense.

If this is true (I am not sure), perhaps it is because of:

1.Starting some new treatments (AHCC, EGCG, L-Lysine, CoQ10, co-enzyme B Healthy VitB complex, carrots, bitter melon to lower blood sugar, no or minimal carbohydrates in any form including sugars from fruits, Vitamin D3 via whole body skin exposure to sun daily and must shower before as D3 is formed at follicles, washes off, requires 24 hours to absorb) for my peripheral neuropathy (likely caused by 2006 HPV infection) which also (in additional to nerve problems at the feet, hands, etc) manifests as headaches and abdominal pain (tumor?) fucking malaise. By "malaise", I mean imagine someone stole 50 of your IQ points. Can't think with that groggy head, chronic fatigue syndrome, welcome to zombie, vegetable-state.
2.Really wanting to prove to myself I can still code and not talk without a purpose of action. Challenging myself everyday to work on my discipline (gritting my teeth to push myself to exercise to deal with this malaise that seems to cause me to be only capable of talking). "Those who can't build, talk". Grrr. It is humiliating for me to see I have become a wind pipe. Is this what old age will be for me! Hell no I hope not.

I happened to be looking at some old coffee orders and came across one from Hal back at the beginning of 2012. Thanks again, Hal, for encouraging me to do my part for the Bitcoin economy. You will be missed.

Still around.

A little bit more about Hal Finney and Alcor is here,  http://www.alcor.org/blog/hal-finney-becomes-alcors-128th-patient/

Quote
Hal Finney, Alcor member A-1436 who chose the whole-body option, was pronounced legally deceased on August 28, 2014 at 8:50 am at the age of 58, in Scottsdale, Arizona. That same day, Hal became Alcor’s 128th patient.

Hal, who has had cryopreservation arrangements with the Alcor Foundation for over 20 years, was Bitcoin’s earliest-ever adopter.

WTF! Somebody check my math. What's 128 X 2?

The atomic number of unbioctium, an element yet to be discovered.

nbiocti = bitcoin

Yes. I'd like a large americano with half and half and no sugar and no suicide cult flower child propaganda. That will be all. Thanks.
