Did you take the "In theory, with low enough volume in btc (say $10k/day) and reserves of
bitcoin equal to one days estimated volume; you could accept bitcoin at the
current ticker values and convert within seconds to usd; effectively removing
currency speculation while still allowing users/cusotmers to purchase in
bitcoin." bit from my post?

Ho-Hum.

Nice. It took me several times to get one Hacker News front page and shortly after, it slips from the front page.

Nope.  Not sure which post you are referring to. 

I was thinking about writing a more extended explanation of how that would work, have you done that already?

Thanks for the (presumed) help getting there Smiley

Where did they get the almost-accurate numbers for the number of sales we have made?  That made me LOL to see.  We haven't sold quite 45 shirts; but we are close.

Ok.

No I have nothing to do with anything like that.
I suspect a direct API with mtGox would lend itself to semi-live exchange, but depth is going to be an issue.

Ho-Hum.

Hi, I'm Vitalik Buterin, the writer. I bought a shirt from you guys myself, so I saw how the URLs stored the user and order numbers. From there, it was pretty simple.

It says "access denied" here (ie. a 10th order exists): http://iusecoins.com/user/1/order/10
It says "page not found" here (ie. a 1000th order does not exist): http://iusecoins.com/user/1/order/1000

Binary search from there.

Argumentum ad lunam: the fallacy that because Bitcoin's price is rising really fast the currency must be a speculative bubble and/or Ponzi scheme.

Think it was in one of the bubble threads or so. Just check my posts via profile, I'm fairly new. Smiley

Was a post <= the day I posted here, ofc.

Ho-Hum.
