Re: access .bit domain no problem, but how to access .bit-EM

So I got foxyproxy working and I can see *.bit domains in firefox. No Problem. Now I want to test if I can implement a *.bit email adress into Thunderbird. So I can recieve and send email. How can I accomplish that? Do email-programs have this functionality? Has anyone tried that yet? Do we have to...

Re: Namespace proposal: app/*

With bitcoin/altcoin addresses included, the possibility of a global decentralized appstore becomes a possibility. Just send btc to the address, sign a message to one of the contact points with your btc key, and then the seller responds with activation instructions.
What an awesome idea ....

Re: GPG and OTR integration

BTW, so far I have written already three implementations of basic querying for name data: In Python (Bitmessage), Mozilla JavaScript (NameID addon) and now C with Glib. What do you think, would it make sense to copy out the code of all three and provide them in some kind of "namecoin communication ...

Re: Adding namecoin "id/" namespace support into bitmessage

Well done. Just fyi it appears to work fine in main branch also (although haven't tested with nmcontrol yet).

Re: Improving the Wiki

The project main site with news and the forum will remain here so there is no fragmentation. A little bit redundancy, especially by wikis and tutorials is not bad. It could be also a kind of specialization. In the main wiki here could remain a comprehensive, more technical information source for de...

Re: Improving the Wiki

Maybe now is a good time to re-visit the bigger issue of a namecoin wiki proper. khal has been good enough to allow dot-bit project wiki to be used as proxy for namecoin wiki but namecoin really needs it own wiki where dot-bit is linked as a sub project. namecoin.info was the beginnings of that proj...

Re: Decide on a general procura field

I think "endorser" is the closest legally equivalent role ... since you are effectively transferring signing authority (proof of ownership) to a different signer (priv key). Though this is more precise it is also harder to understand, especially for non native English speakers. If there are no stro...

Re: [3 BTC Bounty] TLS Support for .bit Domains

New code pushed to GiHub; now HTTP GET requests for .bit domains will go through the Convergence proxy. This *should* allow use of HTTP/SOCKS proxies (including Tor) to access .bit domains. Note that I haven't tested for proxy/DNS leaks (anyone want to test for leaks?), so any use in mission-critic...
