i'm always worried when a new feature is released for an altcoin and this feature doesn't pass the whole sanity check process

most people forget that "fork" doesn't mean "permanently branched away from" - for example, if enough people decide that SolidCoin is better because of the more frequent retargets, that's a change that can be rolled into the official client at some point. Forking the block chain is permanent, forking the project to experiment with new features isn't

It just feel like Gavin is a modest and cautious master who always brings a brief but in-depth suggestion to us. It deserves a try when you are interested in a new cryptocurrency and keep calm on it.

. I really, really like LLC Company Formation Dubai. Remarkably LLC Company Formation Dubai is heralded by shopkeepers and investment bankers alike, leading many to state that it is important to remember that ‘what goes up must come down.’ It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that<a href="http://www.companieshouse.ae/llc-company-formation-dubai/"> LLC Company Formation</a> Dubai is rarely given rational consideration by those politicaly minded individuals living in the past

Why would anyone try alternative blockchains?

1. No, it's a scam 100%
2 - read 1
3. no, read 1.

Thank you for advice, but there is no worry if you "don't touch too much".

In the next sic months many big investors will let darkcoin and start to use Navajo system to send their many.Darkcoin was the first one but it is not brilliant.

This might be off topic, but reading through these posts from 2011 has me asking the question: when the fuck did everyone on this board stop being able to write English correctly?

I haven't seen anybody post about what would be my biggest worry if I were trying out alternative block chains. I realize this may be perceived as "Gavin is FUD'ding anything that isn't bitcoin!"  (FUD == Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt)  But I think some of you might be forgetting some basic computer security fundamentals in the excitement to be early adopters.

When I first heard about bitcoin, my questions were:

1) Can it possibly work (do the ideas for how it works make sense)?
2) Is it a scam?
3) If it is not a scam, could it open my computer up to viruses/trojans if I run it?

I answered those questions by:

1) Reading and understanding Satoshi's whitepaper.  Then thinking about it for a day or two and reading it again.
2) Finding out everything I could about the project.  I read every forum thread here (there were probably under a hundred threads back then) and read Satoshi's initial postings on the crypto mailing list.
3) Downloaded and skimmed the source code to see if it looked vulnerable to buffer overflow or other remotely exploitable attacks.

If I were going to experiment with an alternative block-chain, I'd go through the same process again. But I'm an old conservative fuddy-duddy.

If you want to take a risk on a brand-new alternative block-chain, I'd strongly suggest that you:

1) Run the software in a virtual machine or on a machine that doesn't contain anything valuable.
2) Don't invest more money or time than you can afford to lose.
3) Use a different passphrase at every exchange site.

Very valuable material- Thank you Gavin
