    I hope everything is ok but it doesn’t seem so… It seems as if everything got stuck at 33001. Any idea whats going on?

    Edit: It moved… I really was worried…

    We did it. The difficulty is not what we expected and I am going to investigate this. I expect that we might have gotten some serious hashrate on that last block. I’ll let you know in due course but right now I have to run round double checking that everything is working post block 33k.

    The client is calculating correctly max multiple 1/1.414x to 1.414x.

    The site is predicting 0.586x to 1.414x.

    The site code would lead to unstable patterns which could be exploited.

    The client code is the correct formula.

    You are correct zerodrama. The stats page was incorrect and I should learn how to use a calculator properly 🙂

    The stats page has now been updated.

    client code uses 99/70 (close to 1.414) as someone noted. but we good now.

    I presume the Android client will be updated through Google Play Store?

    I’ll be dealing with this shortly. Sorry all for the inconvenience.

    Done. The android feathercoin wallet has been updated, and seems to sync the blockchain perfectly. Still need to test it a bit, but as far as I can tell it’s all fixed up. New version is up. Feel free to try it.

    It works, tested it between my tablet and phone this morning.

    Can anyone refer me, a new linux (ubuntu) user, to instruction on how to update? Thanks!

    Basically there are two ways to update under Ubuntu Linux:

    [list type=decimal]
    [*]download the cource code from [url=https://github.com/FeatherCoin/FeatherCoin]https://github.com/FeatherCoin/FeatherCoin[/url] anc compile it yourself
    [*]If you are running Ubuntu 13.04 or 13.10 you also may install the pre-compiled package from [url=http://software.opensuse.org/package/feathercoin]http://software.opensuse.org/package/feathercoin[/url]

    [/list]

    Important:
    If you already have coins in your wallet locate the file ‘wallet.dat’ on your system and take a backup of it. It’s in the folder ~/.feathercoin for Linux and containa the private keys needed by feathercoin to extract the amount of coins in your wallet from the blockchain.

    If anything goes wrong, you can restore that file.
