  1. USB flash drive is not a safe place to store your secrets (especially if whose secrets are not encrypted on those drives). Besides the obvious that someone could easily steal it if it is not ecrypted, USB drives are very poor at long term storage, because of the way they store data. CDs and DVDs not much better. HDDs I would say is a bit better, but still it can loose data over time, especially if you do not make full copy to itself of all its contents once in 3 years or something like that. Sorry to say this but paper in this digital age is till the most reliable way to store information. That is encrypted, printed on paper and stored somewhere safe (from people and physical elements) in 2 separate places. Can not beet that.
  2. Yes, I think they do setup few default trustlines to their gateway right after creating a wallet, you should be able to remove them though.
  3. 20 XRP you will not recover for now, unless Ripple network lowers minimum address XRP balance sometime, then you will be able to retrieve the difference. As for 41 XRP you probably have trustlines you have not closed, if you close them 21 XRP will be available.
  4. @mDuo13, good stuff, although too much overhead for my described need, i.e. will live without it @Sukrim, if google is the answer to everything, then why are we talking here?
  5. Those are transactions. Transaction not necessarily involve any trades i.e. exchanges (it can but does not have to). There are two ways to get exchanges using Data API: First is using exchanges like this: Second is using balance_changes like this: change_type parameter is not documented, but very useful. Possible values for it: transaction_cost, exchange, intermediary, payment_source, payment_destination. Advantages of first method is that this call returns more info about the exchange. Main disadvantage is that amounts seen there does not include transfer fee (i.e. commission), which is not very good if you want to calculate taxes using it. Advantage of second method is that amounts seen there do include transfer fee (since it shows total balance change for particular tx excluding ripple tx fee in XRP, which is returned as separate record on this call, with change type transaction_cost). Disadvantage of second method is that it only returns balance changes, if out tx involves more than two balance changes, it becomes not clear which currency you bought/sold for which and how much. Also if you exchange using payment to yourself, it will show up as payment_source, payment_destination and not exchange, which further complicates things
  6. Anyone knows how some people manage to run rippled nodes with "Unknown location" as seen on topology page?
  7. Those bastards are still using Ripple Inc. public rippleds </sarcasm> come on you guys, at least non other than a hub of gateways should have their own rippled!
  8. Looking at ripple network topology, one can see that there are some nodes whose IPs are not know (i.e. location not know). How did they manage to hide their IP and how to go about doing this for myself? Tried setting peer_private=1 in rippled.cfg file but what it did is made the server respond with "InsufficientNetworkMode", perhaps suggesting that it is not syncing up any more. It would be nice to be able to hide IP from topology page, since there is no need for that if it's only for you. Noticed that straight after setting up a rippled server, there where almost immediately failed attempts to ssh log in from China. Do not have to be a genius to deduce where they got my server IP from...
  9. My rippled seems to be fine. No probs connecting or submitting txns.
  10. I do not think they have their own API for trading. But they do not have to basically because trading on GateHub is done on RCL and RCL has APIs natively itself. Use those. More on those here
  11. Not unless you want your lawyer to be a part of your Will. Like 100% part, even before you're 6 feet under
  12. Sued? Why should they have been? You can fork whatever you like. If anyone follows your fork is another matter.
  13. SigningPubKey is the public key exposed when you make a first transaction out of the address (hell, even setting trust will expose this). You can see how tx looks for example here (just some random tx from the network): Basically you would not be able to use Ripple network for most use-cases if you are worried about this. Also you would be more likely to fail at backing up your secret key because of constantly generating new addresses, than someone would brute force you by your pubkey.
  14. Exactly. Where is this personal attacks by @Max Entropy of which @Mercury is talking about? Over-moderation is basically a long held tradition in these neck of the woods. Expressing opinions is what public forums are for you guys...
