Well actually, I just went on my dad's computer(which is a windows 7 and is pretty much ALWAYS logged in on his account which is an admin so he doesn't have to type in pass for downloads) and just somehow accidentally clicked on the download link to this, so now I'm just running it on my dad's comp.

bravo  Cheesy



Wait, so we are encouraging this ten-year-old to disobey his parents and go behind their back to use bitcoin?  Are we that desperate for more bitcoin members?  What's going to happen when they discover what's going on and come on this forum to find admins and hero members encouraging their kid to disobey them and download "questionable" (in their mind) software?

I can hear the child porn accusations already:  "Bitcoin, a nefarious online pseudo-currency that is used to lure in young children, going behind their parents' back." 

Kid, you should definitely tell your parents about bitcoin.  The best thing to do would be direct them to bitcoin.org or http://www.bitcoinme.com/ or have one of the admins (like Gavin) send them an email explaining what bitcoin is.

You mean that's not what the Internet is for?

Right, not creepy at all.

Use my Trade Hill referral code: TH-R11519

Check out bitcoinity.org and Ripple.

Shameless display of my bitcoin address:

Ha.  Fair enough.  But seriously, you don't see a problem with this situation?

Did you think the Bitcoin community was going to encourage unconditional obedience to parental authority? Smiley I like the idea of thinking for yourself and bypassing restrictions.

Young people will be an important part of the future Bitcoin economy. They are unable to acquire USD easily, so they will use bitcoins instead.

Hey I'm one of those players, thanks japhet (thats what we call him over there) I'm sold on this too. Even trying something fun with bitcoins that I talked about in the off topic forums...

Anyway this is a cool thing you guys have I'm sad I didn't get in on it sooner.

Hi fatcom4. Here's something that might help you:

1. Download Backtrack 4 from here:  http://www.backtrack-linux.org/download.php?fname=bt4r2
2. Get a flash drive(atleast 2GB)
3. Copy Backtrack to your flash drive using Unetbootin program. This is explained here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/tutorials/usb-live-install/

Now you're all set to get the password.

4. Reboot your PC from the usb flash drive.
5. What to do next is explained in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTqV8oTzK4M

Assuming password is not too long and difficult, you should have it in about 10 mins. Then restart your computer and it will boot up normally into windows.

No purchase necessary, nothing to install. I hope you see how powerfull knowledge can be and that this will encourage you to know more about Bitcoin, Linux and Open Source projects in general.

Good luck!
