Okay I sent an email to Jeremy from a onion email from a friends linix, have you guys gotten it yet? I sent it on Saturday night, with both my user name and real name in the headline, at least as I recall. I don't have access to that computer at the moment. I will check my other email I recommended emailing me at, maybe a reply has been sent there.

Strange thing is I remember my tech guy shortening the debug code info to just the isolated problem more or less but the attachment I sent looks more like all the info. Does any of that ring a bell?

I also sent a message to your twitter account letting you know the email has been sent.

Can you resend as a .txt file? .docx files are non-trivial for me to open.

Yeah I don't know why we didn't save it as a text file or isolate the problem.
I could do that, but right this moment, that may take a few days, slightly over a week,
I could make some big sacrifices to get it sooner. There is a few things we could do.

However I think I may have found a bit of a short cut....But...

That requires the answer to this next question...

what is the best way to move NMC from qt to a core wallet?

I ran a few tests and I will run another one tonight, but it sort of looks because of the qt mining issue or whatever it is...
It looks like you can still receive it into your core wallet but at a much more limited capacity, it's much slower and so far...
It looks like it's at limited capacity.

So what is the best way to move NMC from qt to a core wallet?

The error indicates that there's another copy of Namecoin already running (as is confirmed by your screenshot), and as a result the 2nd copy of Namecoin that you opened won't try to open your profile or wallet. Bitcoin and Namecoin are not designed to have multiple clients opening the same profile or wallet at the same time. It's not entirely clear to me what you're trying to achieve -- Namecoin Core should be able to open the wallet file that Namecoin 0.3.80 created, so why are you still trying to run Namecoin 0.3.80? Is Namecoin Core having trouble accessing coins and/or names from your wallet?

It seems the number of Pif01010's problems are increasing at the moment, and we are running out of time as some of the names are expiring soon. I think the safest solution in this situation is that Pif01010 manually encrypts the wallet.dat file (the one that contains the names) and sends the encrypted file to biolizard89 or to me via standard email. We then would update the names if still possible, salvage NMCs if necessary, and send everything to a new wallet.

There are still three types of risk in this scenario, a) Pif01010 could inadvertently destroy or delete wallet.dat while trying to encrypt it, b) something goes wrong with the encryption or the data transfer, and c) biolizard or me could steal the names or namecoins in that wallet. The latter is unlikely as we are here to solve problems, and not to create problems by stealing other people's assets.

If Pif01010 agrees to this suggestion we just have to find on a simple but fail-safe encryption method. If the wallet.dat file contains only names then a password-protected .zip file would be sufficiently safe, I think. However, if the wallet.dat file also contains a lot of NMCs then I'd prefer aes256cbc encryption. On Linux or OSX the command line looks like this:

openssl enc -aes-256-cbc -salt -in wallet.dat -out data.dat
(replace "wallet.dat" with the full path of the wallet.dat file if necessary)
You'll be asked for a password of your choice.
Then send data.dat as an attachment to a normal email message, and send that password using a different method, e.g. Bitmessage or a private message in this forum.

Anybody has an idea how to aes256 encrypt in Windows10?

@Pif01010, what do you think? And how many blocks before the first names expire?

Well so far I tried overwriting it on one of my computers.
It worked at first but now it's getting buggy and now it's back in qt mode for some reason.
I had qt namecoin wallet on another computer that I tried sending back to the other qt I attempted up on grade on the one qt and it worked at first I worried I would lose everything but it was held intact. but it glitched out and went back to qt for some reason ..(hence the delog).


I had another qt wallet, I was a bit nervous to attempt another upgrade but I did but it turned into two wallets. sending domains was instant but NMC seemed slow or unable under curtain circumstances to but it crashed on the namecoin core side of things, qt is workings just renewal and money transfer poses challenges/ getting a namecoin core wallet.
