Hi,

I'm working on a story about allinvain's troubles with Bitcoin theft:

http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=16457.0

Unfortunately it looks like new users aren't allowed to send personal messages or post to non-newsbies topics. So... if any non-newbies read this, could you please ask allinvain to email me at timothy.lee@arstechnica.com? Thanks!

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

You should be able to send a PM now that you've made one post.

I know this because Tyler knows this.

Hey Tim,

I just read your article. Great piece! It seems that Ars is getting the technical aspects of Bitcoin right, unlike the mainstream media.

It's still a little surreal to read about Bitcoin anywhere besides IRC and slashdot. Anyway, keep up the good work!

It's pure devistation and anger, I feel dreadfull about what was lost, but anyone who started from the begining should have known to protect it.

Tip me?
