So say I send 10 bitcoins to some one and right at that moment they lose their internet connection. Or There computer crashes. Are the bitcoins lost forever? Tongue

And yes I am new. Started mining yesterday at 204 mh/s bought 2 more GPU but there on back order looking for a GPU that can give me 200mh/s under 190 bucks ea.
if any one has any ideas.

Love you thanks and long live Bitcoin! Grin

You don't have to be online to receive coins. Nothing get's lost.

Don't worry, it will sit queued until they reconnect on line....  They will start getting confirmations of the transaction.

No worries, your bitcoin client will catch up to the current block when it next connects.
