Looks like someone tried to put up scary wall and fat fingered the price, lol. I don't know, but buying 40k in one go is not very smart, maybe it's just rally trigger attempt gone bad Smiley
yes rally trigger screwed up by MtGox  Angry
and i think he'll be angry too

yeah, i'd be pissed

ed:

if the thinking was that maybe it'd spark it higher, that was lost by mtgox going down for 7 hrs and people either getting ready to or already placing sell orders in the range that the guy bought into.  i'd ask for an 8.8 * number of bitcoin refund

or maybe it's just someone that just *really* wanted some goddamn bitcoins (see www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpG8Z-k2koE)  in which case they'll be back for more anyway

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).
