Since we are on Latin here I now have a perfect motto for namecoin:

Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes



Noli equi dentes inspicere donati.

In God's name, I sure the hell hope we're not rearing flashbacks in any ex-choirboy's mind if they happen to stumble upon our Latin posts. (damn! upon proofreading, this doesn't read right on so many levels)

I am sure that if namecoin "early adopters" have to chose from these two options they would prefer yours. lol

Would it be called BlessedCoin?

Forto En Numeros... that's it in Esperanto, I think.

Forto En Numeroj.  

Yeah, I hate the -j for plurals, too.  Hey, how about an Esperanto fork!  Scamanto.

"damn intuition sometimes is dead wrong" said I after looking at this  http://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=%22in+numeris+vires%22

 Embarrassed


but note how efficient G has became lately

Really, it's freightening...

spiccioli.

Also, I think I speak for everyone when I say, get that stick out of your ass.  We'd have capitulated to your point sooner if you hadn't been so sanctimonious about it.
On the other hand, I respect that you didn't flame me back, spiccioli.  Sorry for the snark.

I agree... in the true decentralised nature of bitcoin, I think we should come up with the same phrase in Esperanto!

this is actually a clever idea.....and well suited to bitcoin imo

Nombroj - numbers [of things]; cardinal numbers
Numeroj - numerals; ordinal numbers
Ciferoj - ciphers, figures, digits

If the emphasis is on many people, it should be nombroj.  If the emphasis is on encryption, it should be ciferoj.

If... everything's in order, it should be numeroj?

Great phrase! I was just wondering when you were going to get your butt over here to leave a comment. Thanks much, marcus_of_augustus, for adding to this.

I once wrote a report on Jacob Bernoulli in high school. Boy, I wish Wikipedia was around then. I had to settle on my grandfather's worn and outdated edition of Funk & Wagnalls. He once told me he read every book of that set cover-to-cover.

I have it a little different (while we're at it)

singular

vis
roboris
robori
vim
vis
vi

plural

vires
virĭum
virĭbus
vires
vires
virĭbus

spiccioli

btw.  'viribus unitis' can be (and has been) a motto (it means 'putting our forces together').  In our case it could be used by a pool Smiley

First off, I wish to thank all those who have contributed to this thread thus far. As the poll indicates, the choices are relatively close. At the moment, we're leaning towards using Vin in Numeris (trailing in the poll) for the following reasons:

  • Seems most accurate.
  • Less syllables to read.
  • Cleaner looking when engraved on leather.
  • Less tooling time, though minute.
  • The Google image search for "Vis in Numeris" only has a handful of results, thus will create more Bitcoin awareness down the road.

http://www.google.com/search?q=%22vis+in+numeris%22&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1280&bih=685


Please feel free to tear apart, or add to, the reasons I've just outlined.

Here's an interesting tidbit: Guess what is listed first when searching for "Vis in Numeris" on Google? http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=%22vis+in+numeris%22

spiccioli, I am your biggest fun! Thank you for great suggestions.. 'viribus unitis' is now official motto of MMC pool.

Other pools get lost now!  Angry
