      Hey migtronix (or anyone else), I’m not sure how you’re storing your Bitcoins/Litecoins/Dogecoins but I’ve just moved to storing most of mine in paper wallets.

      https://bitcoinpaperwallet.com/ is a great site where you can download a Javascript-based webpage to create paper wallets on a computer that doesn’t have a network connection.

      Print them out (optionally BIP38-encrypted) and throw them in a safe/safety deposit box and no worries about the coins being stolen if your computer gets compromised or lost if your wallet gets corrupted.

        Nice one cheers AB! Always good to have options/backups :)

        Not sure if you’ve used by btcmarkets.net but it’s an Australian exchange, easy to use and awesome site.

    The ‘five-second rule’ that many of us secretly adhere is an actual scientific measure of how long your food is safe to eat for, according to a group of biologists.

    Good to know!!
