Maybe we should just start paying the 0.01 BTC transaction fee for the more important transactions. With the increasing difficulty this would be quite fair to the miners.

Clients/miners include different sets of transactions in the blocks they are trying to build. Much like it may take some time for an individual miner to successfully create a block, if a block wins that does not contain your transaction, you'll need to wait for the next one for a chance. That's, I think, the one downside of bitcoin... the transaction lag.

Those two transactions took about 24 or 26 hours to even receive one confirmation. Whereas I have seen other transactions go through in under a minute or 2.

Is there any reason that this may happen?

Weird, I have had 2 unconfirmed transactions sitting in my list for over 12 hours. Is this unusual?

Bitcoin automatically rebroadcasts your transactions if it receives new blocks that don't contain them.  It may take about an hour to get rebroadcasted.  It is relentless though.  It will keep nagging the network forever until your transaction gets into a block.

0/unconfirmed means that your client has seen the transaction

1/unconfirmed means that your transaction has been included in 1 block, at this point you can be reasonably sure someone has picked up your transaction and it's now in the chain.

as the number of confirmations increases, so does the confidence in the 'truth' of the transaction.

There is no way to cancel a transaction.

It is not possible with the current client to resend a transaction.

Phew - it's taken a couple of hours but it's now gone through Smiley. Wish I could generate coins more easily! Cheesy

Looks like exiting BitCoin should be disabled until each transaction will get at least 1 confirmation Smiley

I'm having the same problem - opened BitCoin to create a transaction and possibly exited before it sent out the payment details. Now I have a 0/unconfirmed transaction.

Having the ability to resend a stuck transaction would be nice - if no nodes have picked it up yet then surely sending it again won't cause an issue (and if some have then they'll just ignore it right?)

It seems the transaction went through after about an hour and a half.

I created a send coins transaction when my laptop was offline; now it's stuck at 0/unconfirmed and not visible to the recipient, even though other transactions I created later went through. How do I force the transaction to be re-sent to the network so it can make progress? Or alternately, how do I cancel the transaction so I can get my funds back?
