Is there a way of merging wallets together or sharing them? I really see no reason to have a wallet on each machine (2 on a dual boot machine), that are all separate. To move coins from one machine to another is like announcing to the world that I'm moving coins from one pocket to another.

I guess what I really could do is memorize the one address I want to use for incoming transfers, but isn't that kind of the point of having a large hash?

you could export the keys and then import them into your other client, and then run bitcoin with the -rescan option.  This is not for the feint of heart though.  If you really want to do this, download db_dump and db_load (e.g. quick google search is here), then db_dump your wallet.dat from both, splice the lines containing the keys (hint: they start with 036b657941 then the public key, then the private key on the following line) then db_load it back in.  But probably easier to just transfer the money between the wallets Smiley

Sounds like something for me to explore over the weekend. If I'm successful, it will remove the need to use one of those on-line wallet services. Wherever you are, you can get the address of your 1 wallet.

merging wallets won't actually move the bitcoins between addresses, it'll just mean that all the bitcoins sent to all your addresses appear in the same wallet...  you'll still have multiple addresses for each public key you own
