There was a serious bug in MB some hours before they went down. Probably they just try to fix it.

Any source where you got the info about the bug?

I was affected by it myself and another person from my jabber list had the same problem.

And did you contact them about it?

The site was down the next time i checked it, so i couldnt read any reply if they sent me one (you need to be logged in to your MB account to read messages).
The transaction didnt reached me yet.

Your wallet.dat.

That is not an answer.

clearly Jan Vornberger of Instawallet is a trusted community member who won't run off with your money.  in the past he's responded quickly to emails from me of a non IW nature.  he also runs Bitcoin Monitor which is a staple of the community as well.  he's constantly innovating and appears to be of a cheerful nature.

Does he use twitter? Or have a status page not hosted here?

not that I know of ..  instawallet .. but that site scares me Smiley   I threw coins up there one time and closed the browser without bookmarking... LOL!

That's not instawallet's fault.. it's mine of course.. but still without any recourse to get my coins back it's somewhat scary in my opinion.

People can still use Mt.Gox for this, coupled with the yubikey (or the HOTP option we'll provide monday) it should be quite secure and there are no fees (not like with the "first bitcoin bank" canadian scam).

By the way I'd guess mybitcoin is acting pro (see http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=22221.0 if anyone remembers it) so stuff should be back soon (well, I'll avoid saying anything negative, it'll be taken badly again)

MT.  congrats on mobile solutions!!

The problem I have with your merchant system is that your site is extremely slow processing bitcoin deposits.
Often it is 1 hour or more, and mybitcoin did it in a few seconds.
Yes I realize the risk in this, but the services I sell are time sensitive, I cannot hold it for an hour to see if the customer pays or not.
It would be great your API could instantly tell me when a payment is received (even if I have to wait for it to be confirmed in block chain before I can spend it).

We can make that happen too, a first notification when payment is on the bitcoin network. However we cannot guarantee it'll be confirmed (that's up to miners).

MT; if both buyer and merchant have mtgox accts couldn't you make the tx's instantaneous?

Yep, in /that/ case it's instant and non-reversible.

He may be the best person on earth, but anyone putting anything over couple BTCs into this instawallet is crazy or clueless really. These wallets are not even protected (no, password in a HTTPS url is not good enough), of course it is very convenient and fast to use but it's like your cash stored in a public library between books. Only good until someone decides to take it from you.

Do you know of a specific mechanism by which someone could take it from you?
As far as I can see - it's infeasible to 'guess' a wallet address.
If you don't leak it - then theoretically only you (and instawallet) should know of a wallet's existence.
(spy software on your computer is also risk.. but that goes for any bitcoin service)

The greatest risk I can see is losing your wallet address - which presumably leaves the coins available for instawallet to claim for themselves at some point.
It's disturbing that the operator doesn't clarify what happens to these 'lost' wallets - or how long before they decide it is lost
(if in fact they do.. but if wallets are sitting with no activity for 5+ years.. don't you think they'd be tempted to just.. reclaim them?)
