Hi all,

I am brand new to Bitcoin. Here's my problem. My bitcoins disappeared and I don't know how to get them back.

A few days ago I signed up for an account at mybitcoin, then went to Bitcoin faucet to get some Bitcoins. After a few minutes I saw .05 bitcoins my my account there.

Then I decided to get my own wallet, so I downloaded the software from the homepage here. Ran the software, then tried to move the bitcoins from mybitcoin to the wallet. As soon as I made the transfer, the wallet crashed. I cannot open the wallet now, and the bitcoins are no longer in mybitcoin.

What happened? I'm running Windows 7 Home edition. Thanks.

By "the wallet crashed" you mean the client crashed?  Make a copy of your wallet.dat file, move it, reinstall the Bitcoin client.  Before you start it, copy your wallet.dat file back to it's proper directory, and then fire the client up.  Let it run until it catchs up to the current block.  If you still can't see your bitnickel, it's likely gone.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
