Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

For the sake of not polluting threads with my sometimes off-the-mark posts, I've opted to put my quasi-conspiracy thoughts under one roof. Feel free to chime in, correcting me if need be, or kindly (or forcefully) stick it up my ass.

Are they speaking of Bitcoinica below?

I'm missing a ton of features and something all serious bitcoin-related sites should have/use.

1) the code is messy. Take a look at MVC - you really need to separate logic from code in this project.
Base it upon a framework to make it even better and easier to extend.

2) The database-example uses MyISAM - but you're using START TRANSACTION in the code - this will fail, won't it?
Either way it won't work due to lack of transactional support in MyISAM.

3) Do something about the design - it would fit if it was to a portfolio/photo site but not a serious exchange.

4) Caching? This system cannot handle almost no traffic due to the excessive use of JOIN's and stuff against mysql (for like... all pages)

5) Huh

6) Profit.

We're aware of these problems are are building a new exchange to handle these deficiencies.

[11:53:04 PM BST] Incitatus: Jed, you might need a team of developers who you can trust and who are top notch with bitcoin. We have a new exchange platform long time in the making which will come out soon. If you still have your customer's money and the site isn't a major liability it might be in our interest to cooperate
[11:53:23 PM BST] Incitatus: I can't say anything on behalf of us but it's a possibility
[11:53:43 PM BST] Jed McCaleb: Well it isn't my site anymore. I'll run it by mark though
[11:53:47 PM BST] zgenjix: another attack: you lock accounts for 5 secs, but never completely disable them. so it's vulnerable to distributed brute forcing.
[11:56:18 PM BST] Jason: it seem you guys need some quick problem solver's
[11:57:22 PM BST] Jason: we are open for negotiations to fix your problems for a fee
[11:57:36 PM BST] Jed McCaleb: ok I'll let him know
[11:57:53 PM BST] zgenjix: then bitcoin is doomed.
[11:58:16 PM BST] Jason: if possible we should have each of our direct mobile numbers
[11:58:31 PM BST] zgenjix: he should have long ago pulled the plug on mtgox when it was known there were exploits.
[11:58:48 PM BST] zgenjix: we did it several times on britcoin for minor problems.
[11:59:26 PM BST] Incitatus: +44 7435 435 122  this is my number and I'm the negotiator for the group, my name is Donald

[12:00:37 AM BST] Incitatus: for the right contract, and assuming the finds are safe we could be in Japan in 2 days
[12:00:51 AM BST] Jed McCaleb: ok thanks guys

A friend of mine, Jason Khanlar (mizerydearia) invested several thousand into IxCoin. As did many others hoping to get onto the early adopter gravy train. I was working with Jason at the time in Poland and was skeptical of a challenger to bitcoin’s status- the momentum and investment is behind bitcoin.

On March 1, web hosting provide Linode’s servers were hacked, resulting in a theft of 3000 BTC from Slush and, most severely, 43000 BTC from Bitcoinica.

I'm sure if he wasn't so sick, the following list would be a hell of a lot longer.

I think you are on to something. Tihan Seale has been known to use an address (or even live) in Colorado. There may be a The Riddler connection as well. And Maria is Cat Woman.

The more I think about it, the longer this post becomes.  Grin
