I've been getting a "Failed To Place Bet At A Time" error for the last 12 hours or so whenever I try to roll the dice.
Anyone got any idea why that would be the case?
Yes, this happens when connections are not terminated properly. I have reset the connection count for your account now so it works again. Unfortunately we have to do severe blocking of simultaneous connections because the system would otherwise be vulnerable in the same way that PD was when Hufflepuff cheated $1M in Bitcoin out of their system.
The drama got to reddit:https://np.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3u2ago/satoshidice_100_scam_thieves_or_corrupt_insiders/
You might want to explain to them what happened, I think satoshidice is very trustable but there is a lot of slander going on here.
I just answered it. Here's a summary of the information we have:
There were the following deposits/withdrawals were made with your account:
Deposit: 59c8b8aa482f3f19fc4a996ad25a8f3b007ef5ea3c87beb675b4db1b3daf3bc3 18.50000000

We see in the logs that your account first accessed Satoshi Dice through an anonymous proxy. There were then withdraw attempts from several different IP numbers, including the ISP that appears to be your regular connection that withdraw the 2.39 amount successfully.
I'm just speculating here, but it's possible that the secret was stolen by the proxy operator if your personal URL was put in a bad web based proxy, or if you were using a VPN service/TOR and accessing your account without putting https in front of your URL.
The coins never got credited, which means they cant be stolen. I first accesed the site through proxy with https in front, which it gives me automatic, so the connection was secure from the get go. After the coins not being credited, i thought maybe the browser was flukey, thats why i changed and used the regular browser.
My second deposit arrived normally, with no delay. The first deposit, 18.5BTC never got credited, so i **CANT** accept the logic of them being stolen.
something I never possesed, or got credited **CANT** be stolen!! I need you to understand that. My account is still intact with change in it, which means my account cant be compromised.
How can something I never had be stolen from me? Its not possible for the thief to even steal the money, because your logs even confirm my rejected withdrawels...
so how can I have rejected withdrawel when in fact the coins was in my account?
you can follow the time-line of my rejected withdrawels and cross-elimate with the balance, if my balance was "correct" then the withdrawels would not be rejected right?
Lets start looking at possible options: if the coins sit in an account for too long without being spent or withdrawn, would they sit for ever, or would they be transfered to a cold wallet?
The only truth is, they coins never got credited, and I check with several browser and computers, the loggs is proof of that, the coins was still in Satoshi when I checked as well, so I know I did not get robbed.
Also, when I made my first withdrawel, the other blockchain started to show movement of my coins, NOT BEFORE, but AFTER, also AFTER I sent support messages.
