^ Custom checksums aren't obsolete. TCP uses 16 bit checksums. This means that, on average, one packet out of 2^16 (65536) will have a correct checksum but contain corrupted data (if my probability math is correct).

This is the reason that many downloads list the MD5 or SHA-1 checksum next to them, even though they are transferred over TCP.

Using the 4-byte checksum in the protocol means that only one out of 2^32 packets (~4 billion) will be corrupt, but have the right checksum.

the reason why many downloads has a hash next to them is for security considerations (so you can check you downloaded the binary the author wanted you to download and not a hacked/replaced one)

two checksums sounds like a little overkill to me. dont forget: the corrupted data with the correct checksum must also follow the protocol to do any harm. as bitcoin is designed to trust other nodes as little as possible i dont see a problem.

anyway: i dont think the current checksum does harm in any way

There will be a class called "History to modern money" to be taught in university 20 years from now and this would be a big big mystery in human history.

As far as I've understood, nothing has been lost:

The posts on the SourceForge forum were lost.

...
Was the old bitcoin.org-forum migrated to this site, and the posts from the old forum carried over to this one?

Yes.

Not self-consistent?

Is there a way to filter out development posts? I seem to recall a comment about libertarianism and how he was better at programming then convincing others.

It's only 575 posts, just read them all. About as many as a reasonably sized thread.

This forum is the bitcoin.org forum, just at a different name. The SourceForge forum was different.

That's unfortunate. The data on the sourceforge forum would be interesting.
Seeing who was there first and if there were any other clues in those posts about Satoshi...

I miss Satoshi, he really knew how to code.

Legends tell of musclebeasts once roaming the cosmos that were so enormous, they could destroy entire planets with but a twitch of any anatomical feature. Are the legends true?

You hope so.
