Hello everyone.

I was just wondering how people are keeping their large amounts of bitcoins. I am currently trying to set up something very safe and would appreciate the input, so....share your setup!

I make use of the Bitcoin Wallet Armory, for my long term storage.
It has a lot of features and is pretty good with multiple address' and multiple wallets.

My Main wallet is still Bitcoin-qt for the standard set of features (which is still alot), but since it really has only the one address, it's all I need.

print paper wallets.

And do perform this step with your personal printer, not a public one! (work, café)

I have an address setup.   I made a few backups of the wallet.dat and store them in 3 highly secure environments.  

USB thumb, DVD, external harddive, and paper.

I uninstalled the bitcoin client from that machine, formatted it and I just forward my bitcoins to that address to a non-existent computer.

a cool way to do it is to store your bitcoins in your brain!  Cheesy
you remember a long password, and you can always access your private key from here
https://www.bitaddress.org/bitaddress.org-v2.4-SHA1-1d5951f6a04dd5a287ac925da4e626870ee58d60.html

you type in your wtv password you want and the corresponding public / private key will appear, when ever you type in that same password the same public/private key will appear
you should remember to key in this password when in a Live linux boot with no internet connection ( because your paranoid about key loggers )
 
I think that's all their is to it, I've never actually done a barin wallet, please do your own research b4 using this method

I finally grasp the concept of brain wallets and key creation.. and why they can be created offline...  Shocked
