I had an idea for this concept a couple of months ago when I was thinking about running my own Bitcoin ATM drive through bank.

Run a computer with some kind of secure linux distro. Tiny core would be a good base to work from since its one of the most lightweight distros.(Only 10 MB or so!)

Run the standard stable bitcoin server with every port blocked except the ports need by the bitcoin server.

Tiny core runs completely in memory so if some one were to try and compromise the machine and it lost power then everything would be permanently erased. No trace. In order for your wallet to be recoverable, enable a script that periodically encrypts your wallet and sends it a remote databank, like google docs, drop box, ect.

Install SSH but use key based authentication with a password needed to unlock your private key. This would allow you access to your machine from any terminal on your local network.

Connect the headless server to your Ethernet, never use a wifi network!

Also connect the pc to a back up power supply and surge protector.

Hope this helps!

PS: I'm thinking about making a linux distro based off of this called SecuCoin.

Yo, I'm me. Originally I came up with this handle to separate my bitcoin identity from other net identities but it took on a life of its own, and now I'm trying to work out a beer delivery service in major Canadian cities where payment is solely made in bitcoins. Thanks a lot, bitcoins, now I have no free time again, lol.

I've been lurking the scene for a while, now I discovered that I've been newbiefied and I guess this is my ticket outta here.

Hey. I'm Wizard-Ninja (Obviously).  Is the post requirement still 50? Kinda a long time to be stuck in the newbie section :\
Been lurking on here for a couple days. This forum has been pretty much indispensable in helping get set up.
Well, that's all for now. Hopefully I'll find enough junk to blabber about to not be stuck here for too long.

I'm curious as to how serious you are about this. How much money do you plan to invest in this?

Hello there, Bitcoin universe.

I've been very interested in Bitcoins for a while, and I mine for fun...not profit. Mostly here to get technical support, but the limit and everything - you know.

Hello everyone,

New miner, going on 3 days now.
Have 3 x 5870s doing 1100-1400 Mhash/s day.

I'm a member of a very large/popular tech site where we're not even allowed to mention bitcoins.

What's the best way to cash out that doesn't involve a bank?

Thanks

Er, my bad, pretty sure they dropped it down to 5. Used to be 50, though.

I've been on for over 14 hours and have over 5 posts and I am still a Newbie, anyways...

I'm Anthony a now Junior in high-school and I enjoy programming. Currently, I know a fair bit of Haskell, Scala, Common Lisp, Clojure, Java, PHP, Python, C, and x86 assembly (specifically masm). I spent most of my time finding/writing game hacks before I stumbled upon bitcoin, now I spend most of my time betting them and mining them.

Howdy, folks. I'm a newbie miner still wrapping my head around how BitCoin works.

If that sounds a bit odd, it's because I didn't build my miner - I traded it with Jaime Frontero (perhaps you know him) for some other work. I'm part of slush's pool, and at Mr. Frontero's behest, I've decided to join the forums due to my consistent complaining about one thing which he, as a self-professed geek, doesn't care about as much as I do: the UI.

I am told this is something that is being worked on, but the UI is a major impediment to average users becoming involved with BitCoin and I'd like to see this baby take off. So, I hope to be of some use in that particular discussion, as an only-slightly-above-average user.

Hello,

I own redroofbp.com and hojomaingate.com near Disneyland.

I'm hoping to accept BTC for travelers, but I'm not sure how interested people would be.

Hello,

I mine using an FPGA device and wanted to discuss my experience using the developer's software from this thread:
http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=9047.200

but I cant..

I suppose I can just email to thank him for his software via the address he gives at his projects guthub. Besides the point.

I am not an active forum user, any forum, and this one particular thread convinced me to register at this website so that I could join that specific conversation after following it for the past month or so. I don't mean to be negative right off the bat, but this posting policy for new registered users, in my case at least, is kinda disappointing and a little annoying.

Thanks in advance, if there is some moderator policy that can give me privilege to post on that thread. I promise to not be a troll, and would like to not have to be a "spammer" to reach required post count.

Newbie here.  Posted in some of the other forums, and suddenly found that the rules had changed. <wry grin>  I'm planning to acquire a few bitcoins sometime soon, probably on Mt. Gox or TradeHill, and probably also to sell some books, etc. for bitcoins.  The idea of bitcoin is intriguing; it will be interesting to see if it pans out.
