10 characters? How long did that take to generate? Or did you convert a farm to solving a vanityGen for a while? Either way, impressive!

Only "Bowser" was the desired prefix, case insensitive, the rest are random.  In fact I almost don't like it, because "Serbs" is an actual word that detracts from the intended prefix.

If I'd generated that address, I'd change my name to "Bow Serbsen, L.B.E.L."

Haha there would be so many  Shocked's

Glad you got your coins, Goat!

Thanks much!

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

He did not want to accept service but wanted to get me scammer tag and never see the BTC back.

For the record: smart1985 got all 22.5 BTC of his money back. So did Goat. Both are pretty good success stories that present the community in a favorable light.

Too bad you did not also get your 22.5 BTC back now ... What a pity !

How is that class action suit going ? I am almost ready to file for harassment, you know.

Thanks, Goat!

It's hard to believe that we successfully deanonymized an address with almost no information and no legal support. Good job, everyone!

Thanks for the donation Goat, saw that and was wondering why was that there, then found this thread.

This was actually an old GLBSE wallet, I got the email from Goat and then dug it up from my backups.

Cool the coins are retured, etc etc  but can we lock this so it doesn't keep getting bumped up - it's closed and finished with now. Thanks.

well the last post was from the very person who sent the coins so that is rather relevant, especially as it was him & not goat who decided to send only 400 coins out of the 3,000 as a test tx, personally I find locking threads to often be a pain - much better to let them gradually fade off as some later feedback or similar situations may be of interest to resurrect them, if you're personally done with the little drama then just skip looking at any updated posts np - I do this with many threads, mark all as read when they pop up in the list of updated one's that I posted in

sry for bumping it again  Grin

I wish I could mark individual threads read without reading them. That would be a good compromise.

yep, we all wish to be able to un-follow threads that we once posted in without having to go back & delete all our posts in it to do so, one day maybe  Smiley
