Hi, I haven't been able to try out Bitcoin yet as I have an old PPC Macintosh, so I'm out of luck for now.
Reading through the threads, I got the impression that there is no way to have a message field when sending to bitcoin addresses as opposed to IPs? If that is the case, how is everyone managing transactions through their websites that access the API?
The best practice is to generate a new address for each transaction. That's safer than sending to an IP and there's no message field to be misspelled.
