I'm using multibit and i have electrum on my phone. I never keep BTC on a website, once i decide i need coins on a website I send them, use them and withdraw them immediately.

I store my coins discretely so nobody knows how the fuck I'm storing my coins so they can attempt to steal them.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

On a QT Wallet on a Windows 7 VMWare that gets fired up only when I need to access them. VMWare is locked down and used for nothing else other than the wallets. It stores all my coins from LTC / BTC to TIPS.

This is then snapshotted and also backed up completely (snapshots as well) on my NAS and secure offsite once a month (just in case)

My wallet is only ever open when I need it and normally for no more than 1 minute on the network.

Does "online" mean a website? Or does "offline" mean cold storage?

I use Armory as hot storage, so I checked "other".

Coinbase, LocalBitcoins, Bitcoin-QT, and USB Flash Drive/External Hard Drive

Buy them from Coinbase/Local, then transfer immediately to Bitcoin-QT, then back them up to external.
