    Just imagine a well encrypted paypal that doesn't exist but does, like a virtual wallet.

    This is the bit I didn't get

    "Bitcoins are produced without the involvement of any governments or banks; instead, they are generated by using software (also called Bitcoin). The idea was created in 2009 by a Japanese programmer.

    Bitcoins are not issued by a central authority, but instead generated by a mathematical algorithm after computers complete a certain number of complex calculations."

    Yeah, it's pretty much a hash like an md5sum, all the calculations are encrypted and decrypted for transactions.

    It's just a virtual currency isn't it? Pretty interesting idea really once you get all the infrastructure sorted.

    I've always liked the idea of a completely virtual market separate from the actual world market, I've been looking into that recently on a little nerdy side project I'm working on. I've been told that basically everyone has to be in on it right from the start as it's not the sort of thing that can easily be developed without being super sensitive to slight fluctuations (and 19 year old web nerds from essex) as demonstrated here. Which naturally means it's not something I'll be working on much longer...

    It i, i was joint saying how it works, there's loads of virtual currency things, a lot of complicated programming for no benefit to humankind i'm sure.

    There are some incredible Cryptographers out there, makes any of my skills look like that of an unborn otter.

    Feel really sorry for the guys who got arrested here, I still end up patrolling my house with a hammer some nights when I hear weird noises. If I got burgled again and caught them in the act I don't know what I'd do...

    Dude was probably just trying to protect his family, now his life is fucked for the forseeable future because of these silly cunts. Burglars deserve anything they get.

    why did the NOTW behave this way so much but the sun didn't? aren't they pretty much the same thing?
    the sun will obviously just start printing 7 days a week and things will be exactly the same.

    The Sunday Sun is such a bad name, it just sounds wrong.

    Kinda miss thelondonpaper, was so much better than Metro. Had a kind cool layout.

    Do Sunday Sport mesh hats exist? I'd be stoked on owning one.

    How can Murdoch almost proclaim no knowledge of these happenings? He surely knew what was going on.
