There is no way Steve Gibson wrote the bitcoin client!

If Steve had written the bitcoin client it would be:
- less than 100kb in size
- written in assembler
- cost $ 89.00
- no new version in 7 years

lmao

I bet you could get the core workings of bitcoin much smaller, maybe < 4kb.

This may be necromancy, but I'll give it a push. Steve is a smart man, but he's ten years older than me and has the burden of appearing correct (all-of-the-time).

As a young man I was often critical of tech specialists, because I had to tell them how to implement new mime types for media content etc. I was a student paid to work for different departments at my university. Today I do this stuff for fun (build and restore retro systems) and to help people who won't let go of their old computers. That would be, old people at-near-or-above fifty.

Back in the day Steve was just one 'us', which totaled about 30-40 thousand active users. Long before he was popular he helped many people like me get with the need for firewalls and antivirus software. Most early developers questioned the need to address pranks (such as the kind we played upon our professors - your PC is Stoned), because no one thought anyone would be so malevolent.

I was wrong and have been wrong a thousand times since. I have, however, been right a many fold more times since. Often it is better to be wrong than to fail to act.

Food-for-thought...

One must try to understand humor.
Good one anyhow. The Bitcoin client is actually not very well coded.

Ha ha.  Before I even opened this thread, this sums up my first thought from reading the subject line.
