I've been reading the forum as a visitor for quite a while but I just decidded recently to buy a few bitcoins.
So I bought some through mtgox and since I sent them to my bitcoin adress even if I hadn't finished downloading the block chain... (I couldn't wait)
That was about a week ago. My bitcoin client took so long to download the block chain that I finally decided to download it through http. It worked fine, my client shows that I have the whole chain (158053) blocks and downloads the new blocks without any problems. However I don't have my bitcoins!
When I go on blockexplorer.com and type my bitcoin adress in, it says that I did receive my bitcoins, however my bitcoin client doesn't show anything...
And my wallet.dat file is only 104kb is that normal? I'm I wont be able to get my 20 bitcoins back...
What can i do?
Thanks a lot for your help
