I created this account to notify Clark Moody that his http://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/ chart is currently broken; it has no live streaming.

Looking at the console log, we can see the following:

Quote
Failed to load resource http://stream.rtbtc.net:8008/users/info

GET http://stream.rtbtc.net:8008/users/info  sockjs-0.3.min.js:27
u._start sockjs-0.3.min.js:27
(anonymous function) sockjs-0.3.min.js:27

Specifically, http://stream.rtbtc.net:8008/users/info doesn't even get a DNS resolution on my computer (and on others that I've checked). This seems to be broken. Consequently, nothing loads live and the websocket does nothing. Anyone else noticing the same thing?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

I keep seeing Mt Gox connection errors popping up. Mt Gox is struggling right now with numerous timeouts. They must be running everything on one server.

What you say is true, but the core problem (I believe) is that the tool is configured to call to a non-existent URL. I'm routinely getting the message that connection to MtGox was successful, but nothing is coming through on a live basis, and I see that error that I mentioned in the console log. For me, it gets fresh data, but only when I reload the page.

I'm not sure. Could be that the "non-existent URL" is a temporary redirect before trying the Mt Gox connection again. Who knows? Good luck!

I am experimenting with MtGox streaming API (websockets) and I also am having trouble.

The MtGox server accepts the connection, but then does not reply to 'subscribe to channel' commands.
After idling a bit the connection is severed.

Actually it was working yesterday when they re-opened, but today I didn't manage to see any data out of that API.

bitcoinium has the right url

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.
