One of the ten ad slots returns random Bitcoin info. I'm looking for more stuff to add there. I'm mostly interested in Bitcoin hints and funny/interesting quotes from this forum. (No insulting quotes, though.)

Here's what I have now:

Quote
"Governments are good at cutting off the heads of a centrally
controlled
networks like Napster, but pure P2P networks like Gnutella and Tor seem
to be holding their own." -- Satoshi

"There should not be any signed int.  If you've found a signed int
somewhere, please tell me (within the next 25 years please) and I'll
change it to unsigned int." -- Satoshi

"You Asked For Change, We Gave You Coins" -- casascius

"The nature of Bitcoin is such that once version 0.1 was released, the
core design was set in stone for the rest of its lifetime." -- Satoshi

"The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that's
required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase
the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of
that trust. Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it
electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with
barely a fraction in reserve. We have to trust them with our privacy,
trust them not to let identity thieves drain our accounts." -- Satoshi

"Before strong encryption, users had to rely on password protection to
secure their files, placing trust in the system administrator to keep
their information private. Privacy could always be overridden by the
admin based on his judgment call weighing the principle of privacy
against other concerns, or at the behest of his superiors. Then strong
encryption became available to the masses, and trust was no longer
required. Data could be secured in a way that was physically impossible
for others to access, no matter for what reason, no matter how good the
excuse, no matter what. It's time we had the same thing for money." --
Satoshi

"With e-currency based on cryptographic proof, without the need to
trust a third party middleman, money can be secure and transactions
effortless." -- Satoshi

"In a nutshell, the network works like a distributed
timestamp server, stamping the first transaction to spend a coin. It
takes advantage of the nature of information being easy to spread but
hard to stifle." -- Satoshi

Make sure you back up your wallet regularly!

I'll probably remove or shorten those really long Satoshi quotes.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Check out this whole thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=46247.0

I like this one: "We need new suckers, and we need them NOW."  Grin

"Bitcoin had been transformed from an anarachistic challenge to the financial status quo, to the crypto spawn of Satan, fuelled by cut-throat greed and delusions of avarice." - MatTheCat
"these people don't seem to want to stop till Bitcoin is completely destroyed and left like an old cum rag in the corner of the room." - ShroomsKit
