What happens to me is that I sent a rather large payment to an adress that still appears as unconfirmed after two hours.

It is visible in the blockchain.info

Usually I have a fee of 0.0001 installed, but on this particular computer I just downloaded a fresh bitcoin qt, and the
fee setting was at ZERO. And it was my mistake to assume it wasn't.

Now, what can I do to get my transaction confirmed? It is a timesensitive matter for me.

I would absolutely pay to see this legitimate transaction get confirmed, can any miner here help me?

Does this become more and more of a problem in bitcoin? That more and more miners are simply not going to process transactions with no fee?

Transaction-ID in question is:
fa6f86cac9062ca262a5cf9c28824cb2284c8eeb28d0921f6a36f67dba27365a-000

Please can some miner get this transaction into the next block...
I know I forgot to add a fee, but I am willing to add the fee now:

0.01 BTC for whoever makes this transaction go thru in the next hour.

Thanks.

As is advised by this guy here --> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=232979.msg3642755#msg3642755
it would be great to have a webform where I can pay miners something to
make them process my accidentaly zero-fee transaction faster.

PS, as I am writing this, after 3 hours the first confirmation came in...
damn....

Still, to all the miners out there, this can be a real problem for timesensitive transactions when the
user somehow forgets to add the fee, and then his confirmations doesn't get thru in a reasonable timeframe.
It would be great to have a webform where users in the same situation can ...

1) type in their transacation,
2) pay the fee
3) miner confirms transaction

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.
