I tried buying 3 more seats earlier from the Auction. The total for the 3 was 0.0444 BTC and it gave me my unique payment address. I was on my phone so I copy/pasted the payment address and went to my wallet app where I mistakenly sent 0.04444 BTC instead of the exact 0.0444.
That is ok. Your donation address will receive extra 0.00004 BTC refund with next distribution.
Many phone applications support QR codes. The QR code encodes address and amount to avoid such mistakes. If your phone application supports QR codes you maybe want to try using the QR code next time. People claim it is more fun also!
Apparently it happens time-to-time when an amount other than the exact listed amount is sent.
Actually it has nothing to do with your mistake. The nastyfans auction has a dedicated Bitcoin transaction server. The controller for the hard drive containing the Bitcoin blockchain goes on vacation now and again. When this happens nastyfans no longer processes Bitcoin transactions for the auction.
It is on my list to upgrade the Debian/squeeze installation on the auction Bitcoin transaction server. This maybe fixes the problem. Or I could move the hard drive to a different controller. Right now I do not have time for either. So this problem happens about once a year. Usually in this forum it is mentioned
. I was traveling last few days so I could not reset the hard drive until now.
TL;DR: I apologize for the delay. All auction transactions are processed now. Thanks for reporting.
