I'm going to repeat the comment I made on the Time story covering this 2 hours ago:
I hate to tell you, but it never happened. This is an AMD TV commercial (available on Youtube) saying, basically, run Nvidia and get raided for running a pot growing operation due to excessive power usage.
Oh, and a side note, in the US, the power companies DO regularly report users with sudden spikes of excessive power usage that are indicative of grow ops. This data is volunteered by the power companies, and the police do not need a warrant to collect it.
For example, in using the service I actually made the smallest transaction of money I have ever made in my life. My experience only validated what I already believed: that witcoin is lighting the way for what could be the world’s first true micro-micro-economy."

Except Satoshi didnt say Wikileaks is evil or bad or illegal or anything else the guy I replied to implied.... all he said was Bitcoin would effectively bubble up and burst, much like the housing market did and the dotbomb and whatnot.
I don't particularly agree with him on that point, and I don't think any other big name in the Bitcoin community does. We actually want to see Bitcoin get major usage sometime soon.
I'm one of the major third party developers (I wrote DiabloMiner, a OpenCL miner written in Java), and at no point has anyone in the community said they don't want to be associated with Wikileaks.
If anything, many of us have asked Julian and his associates to accept Bitcoin so we can donate to Wikileaks.
So, please, don't spread FUD.
Having a secure transaction platform is extremely useful due to centralized services like Paypal being untrustworthy and generally evil. I think Bitcoin is worth looking at for this task.
A lot of people use stuff like MiniBufExplorer or Taglist or Vim 7's built in OmniComplete. Everything an IDE can do, Vim itself can do a lot better.
