Sorry for the n00b question, but what significance does the "keypoololdest" value hold? What should I see/not see here?

Thanks!

Gimmie!

Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a transaction fee.

The key pool is the pool of unused keys that solves the problem of invalidating backups on spends. Keypoololdest is the unix timestamp of the oldest key in the key pool. The way this can be used is to determine if a wallet's backups are out of date. If the newest backup is older than the oldest key in the pool, then a new backup should be created.

hmm, how does one convert the keypoololdest, e.g. 1364243178, into something human-meaningful?  how does one determine the relative age of a backup/
