Hacked Bitcoin Financial Site Had No Backups

DarkIye Where's the professional paranoia? (331 comments)

I've actually been relatively open-minded about Bitcoin in general, but this really does make them look like they're trying to cut everyone off and make off with the money. I mean, the combination of risk and technical know-how here really ought to result in a certain standard of paranoia.

Goldbach Conjecture: Closer To Solved?

DarkIye Re:Slashdot Summaries Again (170 comments)

DarkIye Re:Arrested for knowledge? WTF? (741 comments)

I assume your parent post is talking about 'conspiracy' to commit certain crimes. IANAL, but I agree with your logic - the material did not constitute conspiracy.

DarkIye Re:Moon's effect on earth (745 comments)

GCHQ Challenge Solution Explained

DarkIye Opaque (107 comments)

I didn't give the challenge a serious go, but stage 1 just seems convoluted - why is it the mark of a good code cracker to recognise x86 bytecode?
