If you've never heard of him, you're not part of any important "tech community". Period.
The whole design of including a variable-sized payload into a heartbeat is completely retarded.
This was either deliberate or Seggelmann is the dumbest fuck on earth.
Wait, you assume it was a mistake?
I've read an assessment that says if you wanted to plant a perfect backdoor, it would look exactly like this.
Wrong, in 1.0.1.
An inherent property of security theater is that both success and failure lead to increased funding.
"It worked!" "Great, but we need to prepare for future's technology. Let's expand the system."
"It didn't work!" "We need to expand the system."
This madness needs to be stopped.
Just use a current search engine but with a future database and actch all terrorists! Why didn't anyone think of that?!
If you don't increase your mining more and more, others will do it and your global share of future Bitcoins shrinks and shrinks, since more and more mining power means less and less Bitcoins per GH/s due to difficulty adjustment.

Maximum optimisation insurance!
3) Number of hard stops
Yeah, because what we need the most - besides people who do everything to save a penny - is said people to think about their money first when they encounter a dangerous situation where they _have_ to brake hard. Driving like a turtle on Valium doesn't eliminate other stupid drivers.
I, too, have transcended the need to see a motor and gear operating. However, I'm required to keep my car fit for public traffic. If it's broken and I can't fix it myself, I don't come up with an armchair diagnosis and then run off to the first forum I find on the Internet in a crappy attempt to handle the situation myself.
I go to a fucking repair shop.
But nooo, criminally negligent operation of an Internet connection is perfectly OK and don't you dare to attack the ignorant unique snowflake. Also, fuck the local PC industry, Mr. unique snowflake can perfectly handle this. With MAC addresses on the Internet and all that.
The next time you have to delete another spam mail, thank the OP.
