private keys.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Agreed, do as Canary says if you are in US.  I cannot even come close to his prices.  This is mainly for the International people.

Sure, no worries.

As of yet there have been 11 people to express interest (i.e. get a payment address) and 3 actually paid for.

12 orders so far, the main problem is that people are waiting for others to put their orders in.

It is a chicken and the egg problem!

Hi Greetz,

Thanks for your advice, I will look into it.  And anything you can do to spread the work would be appreciated.

In the mean time;-

UPDATE:

Due to on of my posts on my blog (Last Forking Warning) getting onto the front page of Slashdot;-

http://it.slashdot.org/story/13/05/13/0423216/last-forking-warning-for-bitcoin

I have been inundated with orders and it looks like the buy in will succeed!  In the last 18 hours I have received about 800 orders, many of them don't have bitcoin at the moment but a few do.  I am in the process of assisting those who don't have bitcoin at the moment to buy some but there are all over the world and speak many different languages so it is tough going at times.

One question that keeps popping up is "What order will you ship in?", the answer to that is I am going to ship in the order that I received payment.

Thanks for everyones support, this has made my month (if not year).

Neil

I am not so sure, it seems to be a lot of work from where I am standing!  I have to assist a lot of them in buying bitcoin now.

I will just be reporting on paid and confirmed orders, I am working with so many others and I am not sure how many will come through.

24 Confirmed and paid for!

I have had a few enquiries on when I will be sending these out, so I am going to include here what I have sent to them;-


##########################################################
Apparently the first batch is built and ready to ship, assuming I get the numbers before the 17th I will order immediately and expect delivery some time before the end of the month.

I would have time to get all the packaging etc. ready by the time I get them and I would then have them on the way to you.

At least that is the plan Wink .

Having a lot of fun trying to help a pile of people buy bitcoins.  This MtGOX stuff does not help.

You're not the only one in that boat unfortunately, all I can say is keep trying.

Still only 24 paid but with many more committed.  Can I be as bold as to ask people who have committed to git their payments in ASAP so we can start getting an order together.

Remember, if it does not go through you will get a refund in full!

Is it that hard to get bitcoins around the world?

In Australia we have bitpiggy.com and spendbitcoins.com and it's been trivially easy since 2011.
Maybe we're spoiled!

We are, to tell you the truth I have never bought bitcoins before and this is a bit of an eye opener for me, for example, have you ever tried to get ahold of bitcoins from Zimbabwe?  I have, it's not easy.

Anyway, less than 24 hours to go, send in your coin's or miss out!!
