Feature requests / Re: Yubikey for Silk road?
« on: September 08, 2011, 05:14 pm »
Yubikey needs to be physically touched to generate a new password. This helps prevent phishing. I think you should go to their site Its clearnet and check them out... I think the yubikey is ingenious...

Granted, im not all that technical, so I don't know all the drawbacks, but from what I have read there aren't that many at all..

Thats true, but if SR uses the basic system that most people use, you can buy it from yubikey. it wont tie any key to anyone. Yubikey has over 1 million users. I think it would be next to impossible if not totally impossible to track a buyer from yubikey to someone here...

I mean if I go buy a yubikey right now it can be used at many different sites. (using 2 factors) As long as SR doesn't make it so we have to buy the key from them, it shouldn't matter.

Mt. Gox made their key so you have to buy it from them and it only works on their site. If you get a regular yubikey from yubico (which Im going to do now) it can be used with trucrypt. That would be nice to not have to remember the passphrase and just touch a yubikey...

Just use the yubikey for when you are transferring money.. 65000 xfers is a ton of transfers if your doing that many you can afford to buy another one, lol..

We dont need the yubikey to log in. Just to do important stuff, like money transfers.. Since that is the issue here..

Also, the 65k limit is how many times it inserted. So, if you leave it in your computer all day and use it multiple times, that counts as only 1 out of the 65k.. Still if you use it 10 times a day, that key will work for like 18 years.. So, as long as you keep it plugged into the computer it only counts as one key and that will extend its life..

Why not? Granted, it would cost a little bit of money, but the security and peace of mind is well worth the 25 bucks that a yubikey costs. I know that they can make yubikey work with multiple sites, etc. Mt. gox's key will only work with mt. gox.

But, this would solve the phishing issues. I, for one, am in love with the yubikey.. I think every site that is concerned with security needs to have one... Plus, I don't think it's that difficult to implement..

This is why everyone with a mt. gox account needs to get a Yubikey.. It makes it IMPOSSIBLE to get into an account with out it.. I could post my username and password here and it would be totally safe..

Its the best 29 bucks I've ever spent..It generates a new 44 character password each time. Like Lasagna said, he doesn't know of any program or programmer that could break it...Im not technical at all, but from what Ive read about the yubikey it makes things uber safe..

I've had this happen to me several times and it's very annoying, to say the least.. I think SR should shorten the time to auto finalize if its USA to USA shipping.. Once the "shipped" button is pressed, I don't think that it should take more than 10 days (even 7) to auto finalize. On average, with first class mail, it takes 2-4 days with the average being 3. Granted, overseas is another issue, but within the USA i think the auto finalize should be shorten dramatically...

Granted still keep up the 4 days for the seller to ship it  but once that shipped button is pressed is when the shipping time should start... 7 days really is long enough. So, split the difference and make it 9. Honestly, has anyone ever sent a letter from coast to coast and had it take longer than 9 days? Since being here on SR, I would say that the longest time was 6 or 7 and that was due to weather, etc delays.. Or if its sent priority, It never takes more than 3 days..

Feature requests / Re: Idea to stabilize our market
« on: September 08, 2011, 12:13 am »
I understand what you want to do, If it could be done, I think its a good idea. But, there would have to be trusted exchanges here on SR. Or SR could be the exchanger. I mean, If this was plausible, I would love to bring in 30 or 40k (if I had it, lol) worth of btc at the current value (7.0) and immediately get 10 for it. The biggest problem is there would be too much power in the hands of a few, unless SR were to step in and actually do this. but I think SR's answer to all of this is hedging. Also, I never keep any bitcoins in cold storage. When (if) I need btc's I buy it then send it on over. That way I don't get hurt on the btc fluctuation.

I think the best bet is for buyers to open up an account at mt. gox or wherever, and you can put 1k dollars in your account then buy the btc's when you decide you want to purchase. It only takes a couple hours from purchase of btc to purchase of product on Sr. BTC usually doesn't move too much in that time. So, if the items are hedged, and buyers only purchase the btc when they want something will solve most, if not all, the issues..

I like your outside the box thinking though...

Ok, so now SR makes the value of the btc 10 dollars yet the btc value outside is 5.. As a vendor what am I going to do with all these bitcoins that I can only sell at 5? See the problem? The only way it would work is if someone would buy the bitcoins from me at 10

Yes, there is a thread somewhere about it. It looks like there have been quite a few members use their service and so far its worked great..

There's a chance that i was looking at a product page and not his main page. Hence the reason for me thinking he didn't have gpg key. Looking back, I think I was looking at his main page. But I just wanted to put it out there that I may have been mistaken..(Im leaning on that there wasn't gpg key a couple days ago)

Everyone should be using GPG... Especially when giving up your personal info. That way, you are assured that the person you are buying from is the only one that can read it.. It's not a cure all, but its one more gun in our arsenal that will help protect you...

He doesn't use GPG...

The statements don't make a whole lot of sense.. Why put "LE at door" Why not be a bit more intuitive? The only thing that I can see is maybe he had bad packaging. The comments don't really say too much.. Just makes it worrisome..

Or, LE actually purchased it and is trying to scare people off..

Shipping / Checking tracking numbers through Tor..
« on: September 02, 2011, 05:57 pm »
I know that there have been many posts saying that we shouldn't check the usps web site when checking DCN numbers or tracking numbers. My question is does anyone have concrete evidence that flags are raised by checking DCN, etc numbers through Tor?

I understand that its a good idea not to, but I was wondering if anyone has actually experienced a seizure or whatever due to them checking it through Tor?

You guys (girls?) are very generous.. Just wanted to give a huge thank you to you..

I think he is actually selling a poor mans opium. True opium is actually scraped from the pod. I believe he is just boiling down poppy pod tea. Maybe he can come and explain to us exactly what it is and how its made. Poppy tea is actually quite good (not taste, just effects).
