Just a heads up as a newbie...
I have no idea if the original post is still valid and there's no way I'm ploughing through 120 pages to catch up.
Could we please have an updated sticky, locked to prevent the 120 page thing?
Regarding the first post, if even relevant now, I admit to being somewhat confused by it. Firstly I know nothing about linux, and I certainly don't know how to install programs onto it it or set up an internet connection with it.
Frankly I found the whole thing somewhat ridiculous. I mean , Step 1, install a new operating system.. Really?
The bitcoin 'wallet' system is THAT flaky and insecure?
So as well as the huge hassle I already seem to be facing trying to get hold of bitcoins with a UK bank account, I have to install a new operating system, again, just to spend the things?
Is it just me or is this totally crazy? There's nothing 'convenient' or 'frictionless' about that.
Is there any work in progress to make a more secure wallet thingy?
