i have a very bad feeling about this.
Why? Don't tell me you didn't back up your wallet...

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

You might want to do a little more research on how bitcoin works.    


The bitcoins dont 'exist' in your wallet, they exist in the blockchain.  so your backup only needs the private key. not how many coins an addy has


edit:
My backups of my local bitcoin client from a year ago will still recover any coins in my wallet today if my puter crashed.

I may be wrong. But from what I understand if you made more than 100 transactions since your backup of the satoshi client you might not recover all your coins/ Most of the time a transaction breaks a previous one in two, sending some coins to the address you are paying to and some back to one hidden address in your wallet. Your wallet pre-generates 100 such addresses : once they are all used new ones that weren't backuped are used.

P2pool tuning guide
Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

this is how bitcoin-qt works. Spinner (and blockchain.info?) work with the one address as the return address for all outgoing transactions. Other clients have a deterministic wallet which means that all new addresses are derived from one initial secret, so you don't need regular backups although you need new addresses every time you use the client.

You need to make a new backup of your blockchain.info wallet every time you add a new private key (import or generate).  If you have it set up correctly it will automatically send you a new backup every time it is needed.

Yes, there was no explaination but it is/was back before the whole thing went down.  They were just improving/changing it.  All those folk that were worried that the .gov was "forcing them to remove the function" were, of course, just moving hot air around.

If all else fails, just use the Satoshi client, or let MtGox sweep your keys.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

so my question is, can i easily download an iphone app from blockchain.info for an iphone user to send him some coin from my android as a demo?  or does he have to create a blockchain.info account before this can happen making it an impractical demonstration?

You need to make a new backup of your blockchain.info wallet every time you add a new private key (import or generate).  If you have it set up correctly it will automatically send you a new backup every time it is needed.

It would be nice if I could specify that I want to use a keypool so that if the most recent backup gets deleted or lost I am not at risk of not having access to every last transaction received for my wallet.

Yes - the problems always came from downloading the blockchain.  Transactions wouldn't appear despite starting the replay from the genesis block.

Hey, I've met with an error when I tried to send some coins from an imported privatekey. It says 'No free inputs' although that address has enough to cover the transaction. I've tried to manually send the tx via pushtx, but the transaction does not show up in the blockchain. I had to import the key to Electrum to get the tx sent out successfully.

To be fair, piuk did post on twitter about it:

https://twitter.com/blockchain/status/310402289737293824
MySQL cluster bug caused the loss of the entire live database. A Backup was restored and recent wallets synced from AWS.

https://twitter.com/blockchain/status/310402755263090688
Urgent upgrades were made today at 12:00 AM to each server, upgrading to 38 GB RAM each.

A new 4 node Dell C6100 server has been purchased and will be installed on Tuesday. The site will then be running in 8 servers in total.
