Re: Namecoin Bundle : namecoin + proxy for firefox, IE & chr

Re: Validation bug fixed - please upgrade to nc0.3.24.64

To be clear: an immediate upgrade is required by everybody. This is not a change to the validation rules. It is a missing validation rule and that is why it has to be applied immediately. If you don't upgrade an attacker can cause you to get on an invalid fork of the chain and can rewrite the past s...

Re: Questions for Vinced about merged mining proxy

Yes, that is correct. I thought more about performance. The pool software should already filter work submitted to the lowest chain difficulty. If that difficulty is greater than 100 almost all the submitted work will be filtered. So submitting work will not load the mm-proxy or bitcoind/namecoind. T...

Re: 51% Attack - Countermeasure Roundup

You will have to do some git hacking to overwrite the master branch with my version. I think you can delete master an...
