While asleep last night I had my first bitcoin night mare.  I was on a beach in florida at night with my laptop and I had about 200 bitcoins in my wallet  For some reason (dreams dont make sense)  I left my computer and walked off.  While I was gone I realized I forgot my computer on the beach and that I didn't back up my wallet.  

When I got back to the Beach it was daytime and it was full of old people.  Each old person on the beach had the same computer bag as me.  I didn't care, I tried going through everyones computer bag to find my bitcoin computer.  Old people were punching me pulling my hair telling me to get lost.  I woke up sweating.  Bitcoin nightmares are scary. Sad

Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

I actually had a nightmare last night about writing a bitcoin client implementation in erlang :p I don't know why anymore, but it was very stressful Smiley

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

No joke I have actually had nightmares about opening my wallet and seeing 0BTC as the balance.

What's the opposite of a nightmare? I had that a couple of days ago – I had around 100 bitcoins and price went up to $100!

erlang as in the language developed by Ericsson for interacting with AXE's. Maybe you are dreaming up a new backend charging system for pay-as-go phones based on bitcoin.

Every night before I go to sleep, I have nervous sweats and shakes. I know the next morning, before my money gets to Mt Gox, the price will drop by half ,then by the time I wake up, it will be half way back to where it was, then by the time my money clears from Dwolla to Mt Gox, the price will be $3.00 higher than it was before.

I wish it was just a nightmare.   Angry

Then I wait 3 days, it does not change, starts to climb, I buy, spend all my money, then it plummets to $5.75 or $7.50.

I wish that was a nightmare, too!   Cry

Why does Bitrebel have 65+ Ignores?
Because Bitrebel says things that some people do not want YOU to hear.

Actually had a dream last night that I was watching a tornado come acroos the field towards my house. Once I figure out that its going to hit, I ran back to my room to grab my phone, stopped at the pc to get a fresh copy of my wallet.dat and check the prices before running down the basement.
