Here is an archive of the bitcoin block database, for new users who do not wish to wait hours for their bitcoin to be usable:

     http://yyz.us/bitcoin/blocks-linux-64bit.tar.bz2  (approx. 68 MB)

My question...   will these files work on 32-bit linux?  windows?  Anybody interested in trying them out on those platforms, and reporting the results?

BTW, thanks for providing this service.  I thought it was on the official distribution and I do recall some earlier efforts to distribute these blocks in other ways.  Hopefully your act here will prompt it to be put onto the "official" download pages.

I'm running 32-bit Ubuntu Linux on this computer and it seems to be running just fine.  About what block # was that block file from?  It was pretty fresh stuff there.
