I have several computers dotted around, just old ones. If I install FTC wallet will it do anything to support the network? Will they have to be running all the time to have that effect?
By installing and having the wallet actively running ,even if just in the background, you are helping relay transactions on the network, there by in essence strengthening the network .

Good point. Still liking the idea of the personal pool just to make my life even more complicated. Anyone ???
There shouldn’t be any need to change the wallet setting or to create your own pushpool. When solo-mining I recommend adding a p2pool with stratum as a backup pool. This way, your miner will be notified of any new blocks very quickly, so you won’t still be mining an old block.
Good Point, btw. any pool with LongPoll Support will help your effort there, no need for P2P here.
This will only work if you are using cgminer. reaper does not have the multi server feature working, yet.
Your client has the ability to run a command (under linux this works,dunno about windows) when receiving a new block. so you can even workaround the backup pool way. You just need to figure out how to trigger LP routines at cgminer manually, maybe there is some API making this possible, dunno since i am reaper user.

Neither IP reverses back to pppoe.ca
This means that some mail servers will reject the message thinking that it is not originating from the owner of the domain. This may be the first place that you have experienced this but it will not be the only. I would suggest using your google account for future registrations or, request a reverse dns entry for pppoe.ca
It’s true, but this is only the case if he wants to send an email. He has issues receiving the activation email from this forum.

Isn’t it just the same for Feathercoin, except the version byte in 14 not 0?
That’s kinda what I was asking…
Well from my work on FTCVanity - I was simply altering the version number to 14 and creating valid Feathercoin addresses providing the pattern was valid, I would like to see a list of valid patterns as I know 6c seems a no go, also the 7 addresses seem far more limited in what is accepted as a valid pattern compared to 6 prefix addresses.
Doesn’t mater if it’s 300 confirms. If the chain gets orphaned by a longer chain, your transactions are not confirmed. That’s why they suggest 120 confirmations: After 120, the likelihood of a longer chain overruling it is pretty slim.
Which isn’t to say impossible. Take what happened to another coin which was a fork of Litecoin or Feathercoin (I forget which one, there’s so many at this point): They used the same genesis block, so someone clever just replayed the existing chain from the original coin into the new forked network, and it overruled the existing one because it was longer, AND perfectly valid. Stupidity at it’s finest… and ALL the confirmations to date became unconfirmed. You wanna talk about panic? OMG… This is why checkpoints are important!
Here’s the good news: Your coins are safe. Either the transaction is recorded in the blockchain, or it isn’t. If the transaction goes long enough without making it in, it will eventually be “forgotten” allowing you to spend the coins again. I’ve seen this happen a few times when sending BTC through Blockexplorer.org: After about 48 hours of it being ‘unconfirmed’ I get a mail saying, “One of the transactions you made has been unconfirmed for a while so we went ahead and deleted it.” and my balance is restored.
That bit of information should be posted in a tutorial section, its a good read.
