I just had a funny thought of the Trade Hill guys sitting around in diapers today, so that they don't have to take the time to go to the bathroom.

YOU may think it funny, but actually WEARING (and USING) the diapers is no fun at all!

My sympathies to the "worker bees" at any of the trading sites - I know from personal experience that diapers are the very least of the pain (humiliation, whatever, Huh) that you are enduring right now!

I have been there and can only offer sympathy - OTH diapers are WAY better than an IED that takes some vital body part!  Cry

If guns magically made you safe then US cities would be the safest in the world!

A firearm is NOT a "magic talisman" it is a TOOL just like a hammer!

Passwords:
For the moment send an email to info@tradehill.com and we will reset it immediately.
I made this request via email three hours ago, no response yet.  I realize you guys are probably swamped, so perhaps it's still in queue. 

Give them some time, They are dealing with over 50,000 users!

6 hours later, no email to reset my password. Just sayin'.


We've been reseting passwords / accounts if we missed anyone please email us again.
We will be adding a feature to reset your own account soon but we are receiving a lot of hack attempts and do not want to rush anything that could potentially be exploited.

Could you elaborate a little on these hack attempts and how secure your site is?

A lot of brute force attacks using the Mt Gox compromised user names.
As far as we know no one has logged in using one of the Mt Gox accounts.
We have seen a lot of attempts and implemented a captcha and accounts are locked after several failed attempts now.
This appears to be keeping them out. We are implementing other features as well which will be announced soon.

Regards,
Jered

damn internet is like a pack of jackals, waiting to pounce.

i think it's about time i spent a little more time investigating QubesOS ( http://qubes-os.org/Home.html ).  the beta 1 is up.

you can actually open something like the Bitcoin client; and only allow it a single port, whilst the rest of your environment sails blithely on...

now how cool is that?
