It was the Bitcointalk forum that inspired us to create Bitcointalksearch.org - Bitcointalk is an excellent site that should be the default page for anybody dealing in cryptocurrency,
since it is a virtual gold-mine of data. However, our experience and user feedback led us create our site;
Bitcointalk's search is slow, and difficult to get the results you need, because you need to log in first to find anything useful - furthermore, there are rate limiters for their search functionality.
The aim of our project is to create a faster website that yields more results and faster without having to create an account and eliminate the need to log in -
your personal data, therefore, will never be in jeopardy since we are not asking for any of your data and you don't need to provide them to use our site with all of its capabilities.
We created this website with the sole purpose of users being able to search quickly and efficiently in the field of cryptocurrency
so they will have access to the latest and most accurate information and thereby assisting the crypto-community at large.
The good news is the TEST network is doing its job-- the problem patched by the 0.3.6 release (invalid transactions accepted as valid) was implemented and demonstrated on the TEST network.
The bad news is that means the TEST network block chain split yesterday. If you are, or were, running a release prior to 0.3.6 on the TEST network, you've got bad blocks in your blkindex.dat and blk0001.dat files.
So, you need to: 1. Shut down bitcoin or bitcoind 2. Remove the blkindex.dat and blk0001.dat (in ~/.bitcoinTEST or ~/Library/Application Support/BitcoinTEST or %APPDATA%\BitcoinTEST) files. 3. Be sure you're upgraded to 0.3.6 4. Run bitcoin/bitcoind, and you'll download the "good" block chain.
Any blocks you generated after the bad blocks are invalid, so if you were busily generating blocks on the TEST network in the last couple of days... sorry, that play money is gone.
Transactions that you made may or may not make it to the new block chain, depending on whether or not they originated from invalid coins (any coins generated after the bad blocks are invalid).
