Sulphur Re:Only when (189 comments)

They want to channel all donations through them, and take a small % of the donations. And manage the donors. For some reason, all the major foundations hate that idea, especially the part where they give up the donors to the Gates Foundation. Gee, I wonder where that behavior came from.

Last Forking Warning For Bitcoin

Sulphur Re:Crap, the sky is falling (334 comments)

What technical problem is there?
It's just that the new Bitcoin and the old Bitcoin are becoming two different currencies. People need to convert all their old Bitcoins to new ones to avoid this.
