Re: Encrypted wallet corrupted, 5000 NMC reward for recovery

That is from 5 years ago exactly. this is ancient tech in v0.3.80, it comes from Bitcoin v0.3.xx and had encryption added later on. Did you try the berkeley db database recovery? Maybe you could retry to get better/more data out of the disk, at least I would store a complete image of the disk just ...

Re: Donations/Fees to get on Exchange List

Kraken is threatening to remove it to lack of volume. We are going to need to get some marketing as soon as the hard fork is scheduled. Need more volume. FWIW, I'm unsurprised that Kraken had low volume for BTC/NMC. Everyone I've encountered is using ShapeShift for that. btw, I could not find NMC o...

Re: nameGUI - an RPC frontend GUI

updated to v0.3 I'll have to try it, currently I'm on... can't tell there's no version info in the GUI :-) But it was installed couple of months ago so the new version should be better. Oh, it's v0.2, says Windows' Programs & Features. One thing I discovered - and the mention of "lost" transactions...

More Room

The last year was a somewhat rough time for me with the Namecoin project as I was in disagreement way too often. Also I want to focus more on paid work this year. So it's high time for me to step back a little and give more room to the next generation of Namecoin team members. I made Jeremy (Bioliza...

Full Disclosure

One of our team members started working for Google this year. His work for the Namecoin project is completely independent from his day job. Out of respect for privacy of the developer in question, we will not comment further. Like many other projects such as Tor, Namecoin has always allowed anonymou...

Re: .bit Redirection to Legacy Domains

I am talking about #3. With bitproxy it should be a piece of cake to implement without TLS and a bit of effort with TLS.

So we should use a new field name. "redirect" ?

IPFS support

If you have not checked out IPFS you should do it: https://ipfs.io It looks like a great match for Namecoin as it allows storage of files by hash very easily. Note that ipfs is not anonymous: https://github.com/ipfs/faq/issues/18 I have created a patch that adds IPFS support to NMControl: https://gi...

.bit Redirection to Legacy Domains

With a proxy solution it should be very easy to implement something like this:

mysite.bit ---> whateverlengthydomain.org/somepath/moarpath/

Is "alias" or "translate" from the d/ spec ok to use (what is the difference between these btw?)?

Re: Hardfork 2016 Value Size Limit

Reopening previous discussions is bad practice but I can't help it: (from https://forum.namecoin.info/viewtopic.php?p=6574#p6574) [...] Assuming that a single large-value name is more expensive than multiple small-value names, then users will only use long-valued names for use cases such as the 4k ...
