Hi there,

I have been trying to get 0.9.3c up and running (using windows).
Been trying for over a day now and have the following error: "Severe network problems | Not connected"

Any suggestions? thanks.
That error will NOT disappear simply because the network has been taken down :)
If you see your funds, you are good to go and can make a proper backup as discribed in the migration guide.
Do you see all your funds?
Thanks Xeroc!
You are a life saver!
Got it all sorted now.

I was really starting to worry that I may have to try and explain to the gf that I lots my christmas present savings on the blockchain

I think the migration process is now finished after [member=7866]jcalfee1[/member] integrated a bloom filter into GUI, which has been released in November.
Has the migration problem been completely solved yet, as [member=18687]abit[/member] says?
Where was it announced? I must have missed it.

Thanks, abit.
[member=6]Stan[/member], it's a bit overdue but would you consider announcing this properly in your Winter Storm announcement thread?
It's a shame we have spent a lot of effort on this important tool but failed to communicate the outcome in a proper way.
There might be still people out there who don't know about this (e.g. I was not aware).

Sure.  Does somebody have a nice succinct summary?

I tried to make a purchase of USD using Bitshares. Not sure what happened but the trade did not go through. First time I try this trading within the wallet from Bitshares to USD (BitUSD, I presume).

Can someone please check block 2235350 and block 2236021

and tell me what I did wrong.

Also, is there any way to cancel the transaction that has not gone through? My total count of Bitshares shows that some were take out for the transaction but it did not go through. Not much there but I am just learning this trading process.

Thank you.

Last time I tried to buy from the orders sitting on the book because of some problem with the decimal part, instead of buying, it placed a buy order 0.000001 below the price or something like that, tried doing it 0.000001 above the price and it should work

You may have done nothing wrong. Sometimes, the GUI places the order
wrong by a slight fraction (rounding issue.
Try to manually place an order at slightly higher price. Your order will
get filled at the offered price though.

Stupid question... won't the 200-300% collateral requirement drive users to other solutions, where they don't need to spend 2-3 times as much in order to acquire an asset?

The collateral requirement is only relevant for investors, speculators and market makers.
Ordinary users are supposed to buy bitassets on exchanges and gateways.

Indeed. So investors and speculators have to put in 2-3 times as much, same as market makers.. could this be a deterrent to offer liquidity, and is it perhaps related to the lack of liquidity we see? (correlation does not imply causation, but I find it an intriguing matter)
