Now, I don't mean you personally, but in general people are hypocrites: when they miss an IPO they scream bloody "unfair distribution" and "premature closure", but when it's their money on the line - "to hell with fairness, close it down now!!!"

Just think...if ye'd a'said that three weeks earlier, you could credit yourself for predicting why the "free and fair" fad would turn into the trollstorm fustercluck I'm living through now. Grin Grin

P.S. If it sounds like an angry post, it's not Grin  I don't have any negative emotions at the moment. I did a day's worth of good work and I am happy Kiss



I really appreciated the "soft" deadline for the IPO. Now no one can complain the IPO wasn't long enough, because they can still invest today.

Guys, you have to be more patient.

I know you got used to other coins' quick "results", but building a coin from scratch is not the same as copying Bitcoin source code and replacing the name and app's icon.

It takes time to be thorough.

Well, it seems IPO dries out by itself - in the last 2 days there were no deposits from new investors, only old ones increasing their stake...

Well, in a sense, it was - spent 2 hours on that icon Smiley

Thinking about the simple characteristic of this coin, do you think it could be possible to make a one click install client from the beginning and add an auto-update button so there won't be a need to uninstall and reinstall clients as things progress?

Of course, this goes without saying.

Great. Can't wait to see the client and find out more details about everything.

Don't get your hopes up - it won't be soon. The first client will be an ugly test client for Test Net, probably with just 10 recent transactions and a "Send Money" button. The real client will come later.

Jeepers - if you do that, you'll have a real leg up on virtually all the cryptos out there. I'm glad I got in. Smiley

I remember Linus Torvalds said on August 25, 1991:
“I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since april, and is starting to get ready”,

Because NxtChg is an absolutist!    Wink Cheesy Grin

Serious answer:  Because NxtChg is absolute.

So, for the client I've decided to use an embedded browser instead of native interface.

This approach has many advantages:

  • easy to program
  • dynamic interface, much more flexible than native
  • easily skinnable and can be made to look pretty
  • clear separation of UI code and core functions
  • portable: html/js code is cross-platform
  • looks the same on all platforms
  • native hyperlinking, useful for the built-in "blockchain explorer"
  • localization is much easier

I considered embedding Google Chrome or Firefox, but they are huge - tens of megabytes!

So for Windows client I've decided to go with IE. Yes, it's not particularly fast or smart, but it does the job and is included in every version of Windows, so the client will be small.

Currently, the exe file is just 86 Kb and the icon takes 32 of them Smiley

So here's a test version:

https://simcoin.info/simcoin_v01.zip

please run it and tell me if everything is Ok.

The logo is a transparent PNG, it shouldn't have any white borders (unless you are still using IE6 Smiley ).

Click on buttons. The last one sends a packet to simcoin.info server and waits for reply. This is to test firewalls and other networking issues.
