blockchain.info has good security and a good record for an online wallet. But I still wouldn't trust them to store anything significant. As the old saying goes, if you want something done right - do it yourself.

Thanks for the input....  What do most people consider significant for bitcoin?  Should I be tinfoil hat and transfer everything to a 100% secure wallet offline thats never touched a connected device before, or should I just keep anything greater than say $100 worth of bitcoin offline like that and anything less on easy to access convenient online formats like blockchain.info or possibly spread across things like 2BTC ewallet, 2BTC cellphone wallet, 2BTC computer wallet, 2BTC brain wallet and the rest on a secure offline wallet or something?

How does everyone decide the difference between tinfoil hat security and actual usability and convenience with there bitcoins?

Thanks!

Thats really up to you.  3 BTC will be a lot for some but to others 1000 BTC is peanuts.  Its no different to cash.  Some people are happy walking around with $5000 in their pocket.  Others wont carry more than $50!  I would only keep enough to cover regular transactions on your connected device and store the rest in an offline wallet.

Give Armory a go.  Pretty straight forward, good guide and very secure.  Downside is you need standard client open to use it, but thats no biggy!

Great guide, I was actually too lazy to do this when I first began Bitcoin, so one day I booted up my laptop that contained my wallet that had not been backed up and I ended up losing all of my coins, I know 12 isn't much but for a starter it sure felt like a huge loss.

Yeah, great tips. Nice work for the newbies area.

1. When you thinking about giving up, you haven't tried hard enough yet.
2. In total failure I believe. Failure of playing others game. I'm playing my own game.

I don't know if it was already suggested but, people can try some web based wallets? Think about.
