Re: Security Implications of (Non)Reproducible Middleware Bu

IMO reproducible builds of security relevant software make some sense, because less trust is required of whoever publishes pre-built binaries. There is, however, a point where it stops making sense. That's simply because at some point you have to trust the operating system, the compiler, the librari...

Re: Namecoin Linux download option inaccessible

I've also added Debian-8 and Ubuntu-15.04 builds. (@josephbisch: thanks for the notification!)

Re: Namecoin Linux download option inaccessible

It appears that the Debian and Ubuntu options for Namecoin-qt have since been removed entirely.

The namecoind packages for Debian/Ubuntu also contain the QT client.

Re: DNS seeds for Namecore

That's it, basically. If you have a regular DNS server on the same machine you'll need some additional...

Re: Why was my thread locked?

take it easy now. Locking a thread just because you can, based on an assumed rule that has not been written nor advertised and on top of that say nothing to the person affected by such rule is, in a nutshell, rude. Your OP and the bumps can (very) easily be perceived as SPAM. Nobody informs spammer...

Re: DNS seeds for Namecore

I've never used Tor. I suppose it tunnels DNS queries, too? Can you check if this is a DNS problem, or a connection problem?
