There is a link next to "News" at the top of this page.  It cycles randomly between a couple different items.

1. Use bitaddress or vanitygen to make a bunch of bitcoin addresses. Offline.
2. Put the addresses into a file (text file, spreadsheet, whatever)
3. Make another separate file that only has the public keys (the addresses.)
4. Compress your file (.txt or .doc or .xls, whatever) using RAR with recovery record. Use impossible password like one of the keys.
5. Put that compressed file into a TrueCrypt volume.
6. Archive the TrueCrypt volume using the compression program with recovery record, just in case the files ever get corrupted or damaged.
7. Put the last file into a USB flash drive, an SD card, and burn several copies on CD / DVD.
8. Put everything into a waterproof and airtight box (or as reasonably waterproof as you can, such as plastic food containers.
9. Put plastic box inside a metal box or safe. Use a giant padlock or combination lock or buy a vault like the one in the Fast and Furious 5 movie.
10. Bury safe in a property you own (or not own, ask weed growers, they do this all the time.)
11. Don't forget where it is, get GPS coordinates or location.
12. You can start sending bitcoins to those addresses which are offline. I suggest sending between 1 BTC to 99 BTC to each address over time.

Very good information. I probably won't need to do all that as I don't like to have a big amount of BTC in my wallet. I usually earn some BTC then spend it once I get a decent amount. But this seems like a good guide for those who do insane or big BTC trades.

To add to my above post....

Maybe someone can steer me in the right direction:
I am still trying to find out a good way to have two separate wallets in Ubuntu, the idea being that a TrueCrypt hidden partition (inner and outer volumes) would have a different wallet in each.
Ideally I'd have the entire wallet in the TC volume and not on the Ubuntu system. Clearly I am still learning with Linux and Bitcoin... Any tips appreciated!
If you go this route, just make sure when you open Bitcoin use the -datadir option and point it to your mounted Truecrypt volume otherwise the data will go in .bitcoin folder.

The development group I am working with is currently working on a secure wallet that cannot be accessed from any ip other than that of the local host 127.0.0.1 making it unaccessable to remote hosts.

There will also be a layer of md5 encryption for further protection.

Stay tuned guys the bitcoin is about to become a lot more accessible Smiley
