Monday Moneroworld Digest 2015-02-16

So, here we are, I did it again, so thats pretty awesome. In other development, I was approached by Fluffypony to become involved in missive podcasts! So, thats going to happen. We chatted today at some point and he's currently making it sound pretty. We never ironed out whether we would publish the podcast with this digest, so I'm just gonna go ahead and publish the digest. Because the missive contains (and will continue to contain, in the future) real in depth development information straight from the horses mouth (yes, the puns are hard to avoid), I'm going to focus the digest on the other stuff that I can glean from the interwebs.

I had prettied this all up and then the website went screwy and I hadn't copied and pasted it into a document before hitting "create thread" so now all that effort POOF into the dark realms of the interwebs.

UPDATE: Apparently fluffy and I's podcast didn't sound good and we don't want people hearing crap the first time around and going "well I aint never gonna listen to THAT again" so we're gonna give it a go again this upcoming weekend. But trust me, there was cool stuff talked about. Aight. Now I'm gonna try prettying up this post again. Don't fail me now experimental magic forum software of awesomeness.

#monero-dev

  • Jojatekok and moneromoo work out some transaction ID stuff for Joja's GUI, fluffypony eventually comes along. Joja proposes a txid->string map, so you know what you've spent and where, all in your wallet software (so not in the public database). Would enable accounting.
  • Mneumonic seed words here too!
  • Someone's gonna write love letters with desoxyibonucleic
  • Chatter about how to prevent slightly different IRC user name scam thing. Bots can do it somehow.
  • Warptangent has some commits.
  • Jojatekok looks like he's debugging his GUI s'more. Lots of folks help out.
  • Jojatekok really goin to town on the mobile wallet effort.
  • Ooh, pedantics back in regards to a push request of a branch that apparently no one has tested.
  • Never ever do a force push! (obvious jokes follow)

Which is the hex conversion of: Everyone should use Monero!!!!!!

And while it took me 4 hours to just compile this digest, imagine how long it takes to actually build monero! Like, yah know, with CODE and stuff.
