No Big Deal, Great Day for Bitcoin

Nothing to see here unless you are a solo miner or pool owner.
Most likely you are neither.

Great day for Bitcoin is more like it.
Just another awesome proof of its survivability and stability.
This just goes to show the power of this great decentralized system.

The stream forked. "Civilization will end as you know it."

Update 13 (0313 GMT):

"0313 GMT: Update 13: As transactions are propagated through the network, they're being added to both forks of the blockchain. One thing to realize, however, is that the block rewards that miners are receiving on the current main chain will be invalid, as the 0.7 chain, which will soon take over, will not recognize those coins.

The exchange rate has already made a miraculous recovery, back to 44.00 USD/Bitcoin."

Seems like things are back up.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Programmer Analyzing Bitcoin

Holders of bitcoins have nothing to worry about with this fork since all the transactions will eventually be re-calculated by non-forked miners. However, anyone mining now using using the forked code is probably wasting his/her time and electricity.
