since the testnet fauchet is broken, how can i get some testnet coins?

if you have any to spare, please send them to
mmd5mp8rAirGXXaDDgu7j4PUY4CnnoxVh7

for my tests i will need about 1000.

lack of mined blocks should not really be a problem for me.

i theory i would even be willing to pay for them, but then it wouldn't be testnet right?

gavin used to run test net faucet giving away 50 coins per visit, should be still online

you don't need 1000 of them, remember they are divisible up to 8 decimal places

you can buy them. 1/4 btc per 50 test net coins used to be the usual trade
(yes makes little sense to buy them if gavin is giving them away for free)

Stay tuned:  the testnet is a mess right now. Another genesis block reset might be needed to fix it, there have been several blockchain-splitting changes and there are several different versions of the blockchain competing (with/without the difficulty change, with/without the duplicate coinbase change, and with/without BIP16 support).

In the meantime, testing with a testnet-in-a-box or private testnet is a good way to go:

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

Testnet is healthier now, although you'll need to run latest 'git HEAD' to be on the right chain. Thanks to everybody who threw some hashing power at it to outrun the bad, old-rules chains.
