Is there a good blog post that explains this project to non-bitcoin fanatics?

Here is small tool to check the json-value you submit in namecoin :
http://dot-bit.org/tools/domainCheck.php

It only says if the json-syntax is valid and tries to correct \, " and ' problems.
It may avoid some common problems when registering a domain :p

I've updated the two linux archives (32 & 64bits) of namecoind with latest patches (ex: Report immature coinbase transactions in listtransactions, and a lot more patches from bitcoins)

If someone wants to build the windows version, i would put it on the dot-bit wiki.

Here are some recent questions about the design of the project :

- Storing data in a DHT ?

- How to prevent rush on new TLD/namespace over time

- Change the expire time of a domain

- [SPEC] Domain name specification
Quote from: gsan
It's not a big deal to implement these features, but it's hard to go back and change things after everyone starts using it. So criticisms/requests/flame welcome. Smiley


ps : we are still waiting for a recent windows build from a generous compiler :p

Latest news about the project :

- expiration time has been increased, as asked by a lot of people, from 12k to 36k blocks (250 days instead of 83). Change will take effect at block 24k (commit).

- fees will decrease faster after block 24k, to avoid the past situation where registering a name cost near 40$ (current price : 7.5$).

- 2000 domains names are currently reserved for a total of 2020 names. 44 names have expired and are free again (see also expiring soon).

- namecoin difficulty is subject to a boomerang effect : after a x4, a x0.38 is currently expected. But, hashing power seems to increase again since several days (instant power drop to x0.20 but is now at x0.31).

- draft spec still needs your comments to be finalized.

Khal how much faster are the fees to buy domains going to decrease by after block 24k?

so, I thought my domains expired, but they all still work. However, when I do "./namecoind name_list" the domains show negative expire times. For example, one of them says:
Code:
"expires in" : -484
What does that mean?

It's now free and somebody else can register it. You can't renew it too, you must register it again (name_new, name_firstupdate).

I must update my DNS server to ignore names with negative values (something changed, they was marked as "expired: 1" in a previous version of namecoin)
Edit : fixed.

Anyone wanna trade a NMC or two for BTC?

Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

- namecoin difficulty is subject to a boomerang effect : after a x4, a x0.38 is currently expected. But, hashing power seems to increase again since several days (instant power drop to x0.20 but is now at x0.31).
I don't know if you are directly involved in the project, but I'm not sure who is, and I wanted to report that I believe I may see a bug in the new nextDifficulty calculator.  I know it is supposed to be more accurate, but right now, shows 94035.9021742 as the next difficulty citing a x4 max adjustment while the newer calculator (in your posted URL) shows it being 107608.93, which is presumably wrong because of the x4 max adjustment limit.
