Re: Reimplement Namecoin on Devcoin?

I've run it & got it to sync namecoin, but it's still syncing & it crashed part way though. I haven't configured it, just using default config, maybe I can get it working better, but it seems even more resource hungry than namecoind so far. It seems to need work, but maybe less work than reimplement...

Re: Tip4Commit Policy?

A problem is that it has to be done manually, if you're going to review every commit & decide which category it comes in. Is anybody going to keep on top of it?

Re: Reimplement Namecoin on Devcoin?

I was planning to try libcoin when I get the testnet faucet set up again, since it'll be on a cheap low ram atom server (and I hope libcoin is less ram hungry) & that wont need to do any name operations, but I haven't done it yet. Does libcoin support the current testnet? Cool, let me/us know how i...

Re: Entropy Generator Dongle

For the more technically minded, how is this chip going to 'generate' (collect?) entropy? Is it even possible on an FPGA? Other devices seem to use some analogue electronics to measure something unpredictable.

Re: maybe Namecoin's crash to $1 a good thing..

If I had the dev skills I would do it for free and not complain about it and you should do the same. Andreas antonopoulos worked for free for a very long time before he started actually getting paid and that was when the foundation was finally established. Someone who wanted NMC to succeed would sp...

Please enforce https on the forum

and secure cookies... it should just be a setting in phpBB's admin cp & maybe a little .htaccess line to be sure. There's no excuse for allowing plain text logins now. I even get redirected to http when I've tried to use https, I think it's after I post.

Re: TechReview of privacy

The paper gives more information... http://dig.csail.mit.edu/2014/Papers/PST-PETS/PETS.pdf seems interesting & I agree a lot of those concepts could be applied to Namecoin. It looks like they've chosen DHT instead. I've been wanting to do some similar things with Namecoin & the id/ space. I want to ...

Re: Reimplement Namecoin on Devcoin?

Isn't there a risk of a fork if there are two separate official implementations? Wont it be dividing (your) efforts? If there's something seriously stalling libcoin & it'll be a lot easier to bring namecoin up to bitcoin 0.9 or devcoin than get libcoin stable & supporting all namecoin features then ...

Re: Reimplement Namecoin on Devcoin?

I'm confused. What about libcoin? What's the problem?
