OP UPDATING! Was away for a while and I'm just now getting back up to speed on the latest happenings with BTC.

My thinking is the coins never actually existed. I dumped the private keys and rescanned the wallet, the balance returned to 0, and the unconfirmed transactions vanished. The Tx IDs, when looked up on blockchain.info return nothing.

The wallet is too big to import into blockchain.info. Is there any other ways of attempting to getting the coins back or are they gone? I distinctly remember having a similar problem a year ago and I managed to recover coins.

Backup your wallet.dat to another location, download a light client like Electrum or Multibit, import the private keys into it, one by one if you can't import the wallet.dat file directly.

There are no coins. Said dice site created and accepted long chains of unconfirmed transactions.

There were a bunch of incidents where it looked like SD customers got screwed by doublespends... I never understood why people didn't complain.  This had upped my estimation that most of the SD activity was shareholders trying to pump their shares (an estimate that increased exponentially after it went non-public and the traffic basically dried up instantly)
