< jonasschnelli> At the moment, the change will not result in HD keys when setting -usehd=1 if your wallet already exists.
< sipa> jonasschnelli: i'm aware
< jonasschnelli> Do you think we should detect if the wallet was created with -usehd=0 (non had) and abort startup if someonw passed -usehd=1 afterwards?
< sipa> jonasschnelli: i'm not suggesting to change that
< sipa> yes
< sipa> it's completely counterintuitive to start with -usehd=1, accidentally load a non-hd wallet, and continuing without knowing\
< jonasschnelli> Okay. I see. So usehd=1 in a case where the wallet exists = abort init
< jonasschnelli> I agree. This little check makes sense.
< sipa> where the wallet exists and it isn't already an hd wallet
< jonasschnelli> Same with usehd=0 (if the wallted was created with usehd=1).
< sipa> indeed
< instagibbs> jonasschnelli, I think I made the same point for the previous HD PR IIRC
< instagibbs> (so +1 for something like that)

< whu> Hi .. Hi how can I run bitcoin core such that it only cares about the accepted blocks and not the rest of the p2p stuff ?
< whu> I am planning to run testnet and want to save on bandwitdth...
< sipa> -blocksonly
< sipa> will make it not advertize, request, or download any transactions
< sipa> there will still be some overhead of ping, address relay, ... but that's marginal
< whu> Could you ballpark how much bandwidth that is likely to incur in a month...?
< sipa> on testnet? no clue, it will depend on what kind of weird things people are doing on it
< whu> But if I am doing with -blocksonly wouldnt it be just the b/w for 1 block every10 minutes??
< sipa> on mainnet that would be true (assuming you also only have a single connection)
< sipa> on testnet, block creation is very irregular
< whu> Okay ... off the topic... Are you Peter Wuille?
< whu> :)
< whu> Anyway thanks a lot for humouring noobs like me...
< sipa> yes
< sipa> :)
< luke-jr> Pieter*

< sipa> details
< whu> I'm so sorry , Dr Pieter Wuille ...
< whu> :)
< whu> I dont know whether this question is appropriate for this forum... but do you think Brexit will be good for bitcoin ?
< slackircbridge1> <patel> It's not appropriate, please take it to a price talk or speculation forum
< sipa> or #bitcoin
< sipa> or #bitcoin-pricetalk
< Lauda> sipa is segwit going to be included in the next version? I've failed to find relevant information.
< sipa> Lauda: that will depend on whether it gets sufficient review
< sipa> it gets in when it gets in
< Lauda> What do you think though? Is there a scheduled date for 0.12.2'
< Lauda> ?
< sipa> there is a release schedule for 0.13.0
< sipa> 0.12.2 will just be a backport of bugfixes from the 0.13 tree
< Lauda> So the AIM is 1st of August? Okay, thanks.
< sipa> bugfixes and softforks... like segwit
< sipa> 0.12.2 may be released before 0.13.0
