I needed a way to backup my Bitcoins so I started developing pyBitcoinBackup.

You can download from : *Link Removed*

Currently there is no encryption, so be careful!  Other than that, it is a pretty neat little app if I say so myself.  Actually it’s two applications.  A Tkinter  GUI and a command line app that has two modes.

The GUI is your standard run of the mill GUI (so no explanation needed).

The command line has two modes.  The first mode is the CLI mode, the interactive mode which allows you to perform the same functions in the command line that you can perform from the GUI (editing your settings and performing backups). The second mode is the BACKUP mode, which doesn’t do anything except perform a backup (Perfect for crontabs).  The backup mode is still flexible though.  If no email password is specified in your configuration, it will prompt you to enter one.  (WAIT don’t flame quite yet) For crontab goodness you can also specify the password as a command line parameter like this: pybitcoinbackup.exe backup mypassword.

Because it is written in pure Python it should run on any operating system, however I have only tested it on WindowsXP so far.  Additionally there is a compiled version for Windows users who don’t wish to install python.

I also hope to add encryption soon too,  so stay tuned for more updates.

Cheers.

You can download from sourceforge at: http://www.multiupload.com/[link removed to avoid people clicking on it by accident]

Hmm that's NOT sourceforge and that appears to be an executable so it's rather suspicious if you ask me.

It's our wallets we're talking about man, so most of us would rather be careful.
Instead of an .exe, how about a .zip instead? Cheesy

Sorry, but we'll need to see some source code before we let you post an exe here.

Relax guys, I'm sure he made it an .EXE out of the kindness of his heart to make it more convenient for the less savvy of us to use.

Well, this is one of the debate: In a centralized system, security can be controlled by a few authorities, while in a distributed system, security in principle should be controlled by the mass people

So, if spam/virus can be eleminated using a p2p network, then wallet will be safe enough, how to implement this technically? Through forum?  Roll Eyes
