very good news indeed.

i'm not so sure what it has to do with a large blockchain - but... 30 miles, and without a shannon limit?

sounds like we have an answer to those who can turn off the internet.  this makes low-density, wireless mesh networking possible.

how quaint that the name of the company should be 'reardon'...

i didn't.  i expect that information would fall under the heading of 'competitive advantage'.  i don't think they're going to be open sourcing this project...

I was referring to the long initial download of the soon to be 1GB block chain. at Gigabit speeds you could be up and running in just a few seconds.

Mesh networking was being screamed in my head too. I just hope this all comes to fruition before I'm old and grey.

Would be nice to have the miners seeding a torrent of the current blockchain, maybe update the file they are torrenting once every 'n' days. Unless there's some future bitcoin client feature in the works to do the same thing that I'm not aware of.

One of my more frustrating experiences when I was just starting out was simply getting the entire blockchain. (Since the client does nothing to tell you it hasn't gotten them all yet, you just watch numbers climb and wonder what it means.)

HaHa. I had that thought until I realized I was being blonde and that the bitcoin client basically is already a customised bittorrent program. Its an easy mistake to make.

I do agree that there should be some kind of indicator to new users about what's going on behind the scenes. There must have been long debates about it on #bitcoin-dev though, so I won't overstep the mark.
