My only question is: With the real possibility of a viable open-source SC client with good peeps helping the dev movement, should we hang on to our Solidcoins or dump them like Smoothie advised?

I've already unloaded all of mine. I am sure there will be alternative block chains in the near future that have much more to offer than solidcoin has.

But they'll have smaller logs. Smiley

Never forget, Art still did a dick move.
Not disagreeing with you here. Though I do regret not noticing the massive txdb journal growth earlier, or I would have stopped the "attack" a lot sooner than I did.

The unintended consequences of king douche bag's attack is though that he hurt a lot of people beyond Coinhunter even.  Thats where the ass hat looses 100% respect and credibility.  He also apparently know about other underlying bugs in the cryptocurrency systems which inadvertently killed peoples nodes (also from Bitcoin).  Yet the scum out here champions him as some great Hero of douche bag ville....  says a lot about this community.....

I'm not sure why you are defending CH/RS so much on these forums. It just seems like you are his minion or something OR that you get some benefit for doing it.

Did ArtForz hurt a lot of people's coins? Yes. But those were speculators speculating on a risky currency. They knew what they got into or should have known. The fact that it's risky is because the new currency is untested. With the code CH/RS put into it, you can't be sure it's not full of bugs. And they obviously had no idea that CH/RS will self destruct like that. So live and learn.

I actually believe that what ArtForz did was best for SolidCoin. It showed what kind of person CH/RS really is. It made a lot of people wise up and sell their SolidCoins before it was too late. If ArtForz did not expose SolidCoin's vulnerability *and* CH/RS's real self, SolidCoin's would have lasted a bit longer. More people would have bought in and be invested in this coin. All this (vulnerabilities and CH/RS's incompetence in fixing issues and his behavior) will inevitably come out at a later point. And when that happens, more people would have been hurt.

I actually take that back about ArtForz hurting a lot of people. He really didn't. His attack was pretty mild. It slowed down processing of blocks. It yielded an unintended side effect (that ArtForz was not previously aware of) of causing the transaction logs to grow too big. This caused some nodes to crash if they were running low on disk space. What hurt solidcoin more was CH/RS's half-ass buggy fix that did more damage than it fixed AND his other half-ass fix to fix his first fix. And according to ArtForz, the latest fix introduced yet another vulnerability of the blockchain growing uncontrollably. CH/RS's incompetence is hurting solidcoin more than ArtForz's attack.

And in the end, none of this hurt the price of solidcoins much at all. So no one was materially hurt by any of this until CH/RS decided to change the open source license. Was that a revenge move? This pissed off doublec enough to shutdown the largest exchange and it pissed off eleuthria enough to shutdown the largest pool. THAT was what caused the price to plummet, which hurt people. So I would argue that CH/RS hurt his own solidcoin supporters by making this dumbass move. Maybe we should investigate if he sold all his coins before the move, and bought them back cheap!

I dont know of any recent fix making the blockchain growing uncontrollably.
The only issue I am currently aware of is that under certain circumstances the disabling of orphan block storage can possibly cause nodes to never catch up to the current head of the chain and under similar circumstances can also cause them to spam 1000s of "GetBlocks" requests while downloading the chain.

This fork uses SolidCoin 1.03 and fixes all the recent problems in the code
Here's Soldcoin (SLC) 1.04:
https://github.com/jackjack-jj/soldcoin


diff solidcoin1.03 soldcoin1.04:
Code:
$ diff solidcoin-source-103/src soldcoin-source-104/src
Les sous-répertoires solidcoin-source-103/src/cryptopp et soldcoin-source-104/src/cryptopp sont identiques.
diff solidcoin-source-103/src/init.cpp soldcoin-source-104/src/init.cpp
323c323
<             HWND hwndPrev = FindWindowA("wxWindowNR", "SolidCoin 1.03");
---
>             HWND hwndPrev = FindWindowA("wxWindowNR", "SoldCoin 1.04");
...

I like the new name "soldcoin". It's probably just a typo but so what.

BTW, lots of people are asking (in freenode ) for the windows version. I have no Windows so I can not help them.
Can someone please help those good people, who do not like the evil mad monkey license, and push the compiled exe's to git or something.

One more thing. I started a #solidcoin-fos channel in freenode for chitchat so this forum thread can have more useful content and less of that 0 value blaa blaa blaa Smiley

Edit: added the missing 'i'

Shouldn't have done it in the first place, you didn't get vengeance against Coinhunter even, you took it out on the end users and that is worse than EVERYTHING you all have accused Coinhunter of.... If you were a decent human being you should be ashamed of yourself, and if the rest of these clowns cared about this technology (Cryptocurrency in general) they should cast you out from here.

The thing is someone was going to do it sooner or later, it was only a matter of time. In the real world things get attacked all the time. You are better knowing about it sooner so you can fix it.

At least this clearly demonstrated that SolidCoin was technically broken and by extension CoinHunters claims to have made a better BitCoin were false.

+1 for ArtForz' actions and making them public

it was all according to the codex  Wink

Anybody attacking him has not thought about how a bad guy would have done it. ArtForz did a service and a favor to everybody associated with solidcoin and whole the cryptocurrency community.

If instead of ART someone to GAIN PROFIT had done what ART did then who can u blame?
ART did huge that too ONLY ONE tx that clearly showed the bug.
What if some one came to know this & secretly did some 100 tx & gained profit & totally brought down all the crytocurrencies, then no one will be here scolding each other. Most will be crying for loosing all their coins & some even life.

ART did one thing which showed a vulnerability in the client.
A REAL DEVELOPER MUST take whatever feedback from his client users & if some negative feedback comes then he MUST solve it, instead of calling others fuck off.
If no one gave feedback abt how fucking shit was Windows Vista & M$ never took feedback & scold, insulted those who gave feedback, then Windows 7 wouldn't be released at all.
DEVELOPERS job is to DEVELOP & give error free software. Not to scold who gives feedback.

One bug regarding the address book is already fixed in the code, so this should probably fine in the next release.

Does your client download those huge blocks very slow too? Can it be cured somehow?

Nope.  Once you download them and close the client it'll go back to a more 'managable' size, but that first time downloading it is going to be multiple gb of space.

The slow processing? Can't be fixed for now (not unless you pull in some rather... experimental... bitcoin changes).
The txindex journal bloat? https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/491

Oh, the *downloading* is as fast as everything else Grin. It's the processing what takes its time. It's worth to keep a backup of blk*.dat!

I've created a thread on the SolidCoin forum that you "open source" client people may want to vote "no" on .

Yep. I'd do a build with that for Windows and Linux using my new-found gitian powers, but RealSolid monkeyed around with the build process a lot and it looks like fixing gitian support again would be quite hard.
