ThomasV, thank you so much, the client is awesome, I'm donating todays mining income to your server.

hey thanks Smiley
please be aware that some details still need to be polished though.
for example, the client does not have an elaborate computation of transaction fees for the moment; it just uses the fee you set in your preferences.

As of 5 minutes ago, a second Electrum server runs on electrum.novit.ro port 50000.

Feel free to play with it, it should offer the same service as ThomasV's server. While I can guarantee that the server will remain online and updated, do remember that this is alpha code so please don't move all your coins to Electrum just yet.

For any issues with this server, please PM me. Slowness is expected if there will be a lot of concurrent clients, SQL is to blame. I don't think that's a problem at the moment.

If there's interest, I can write a short guide to setting up your own server (which can be public, like mine, or private).

Thanks Ovidiusoft, the Electrum network is proud to announce the birth of its second server!

The availability of multiple servers will improve the resilience of Electrum, making sure the service can always be accessed and is never interrupted.
We will soon add new features to the client, in order to facilitate its connection to a list of servers.

For information, public Electrum servers can be seen in the #electrum channel of Freenode

Say I have my client connected to the main server, but then it goes down.  Would it be possible to have a client connect to a fallback server?

Can you add a flag that enable something like a p2p system between servers? ( the admin can chose to enable it or not )
Example: edonkey2000 servers, they are able to share them self between each other, so when you connect to one, you will get all remaining servers.

Then the client will ping all servers and will connect to the faster one.

yes, we are going to add this kind of features to the client.
the protocol already has a 'peers' command that returns the list of active servers, but this command is not used by the client at the moment.
here is a page that shows the list of active servers: http://ecdsa.org/electrum.php

Are there any difficult steps? I'll probably set up a server after this weekend.

you need to import the blockchain in Abe; depending on your hardware, it might take some time.

For me, this is less about speed than about trust. For trust, this model doesn't work.

Best randomly choose from server-list and ask >= 3 servers and compare and rate servers in the client... or something. But that's not a pressing issue as of now since the server cannot do really bad stuff anyways.

I'd love to see this in a java format.  EVERYTHING can run java, quickly and easily!  Python would be great if it were built-in to OS platforms, but a lightweight java client could mean instant accessibility for anyone on any platform.

there are already java clients, like multibit (desktop) or bitcoin spinner (android). Unfortunately desktop java applications usually don't look "native", but electrum do (currently on linux systems, in near future on Windows too).

Lol. Nothing looks "native" on linux it seems to me: k, g, q,...

If you encounter a problem that is not solved by the existing README, you should describe what your problem is.
for example, are you trying to install a client or a server ? this kind of info would help...

On debian/ubuntu, you need these packages in order to use the gui
* apt-get install python-gtk2
* apt-get install python-tk

My apologies when I red the README I saw the easy_install command and I had no idea what this thing was.  It appears that it is actually installed on debian.  So everything is fine.

Thanks for this tool that seems to be exactly what I had been waiting for for quite some time.

If you pick a new server, are all the balances re-requested, so you can verify the first server wasn't lying to you?

I forgot one word of my mnemoic sentence and looking for a way to look at it found out how you can easily encode/decode hex <-> mnemonic:

Quote
nick@zero ~/bitcoin/electrum $ python client/mnemonic.py 72349d98ff0834f9ddee34
yet support music revenge accept hill

nick@zero ~/bitcoin/electrum $  python client/mnemonic.py yet support music revenge accept hill
72349d98ff0834f9

that way I was able to refresh my memory and soon I can destroy the (hopefully only) copy of the hex string
