Helped a friend install Flowee as a wallet on a 4 year old laptop with spin disk.

We expected days to sync the entire 10 year chain, yet it took only 7 hours!

This as a followup to last weeks test which took 3 hours on a high end desktop.

This is all due to the UTXO database I wrote exclusively for Flowee the Hub (its Free software, though), a custom made database that works with the blockchain concepts in mind to make it much much faster than any other off the shelve databases anyone tried.

I'm focusing more on the APIs now. Allowing me to create apps that communicate solely over the network with the Hub, which in turn communicates with the Bitcoin (Cash) network. The APIs are the basic reason for existence of Flowee. I guess its overdue that they get more attention.

First app I want to write is a transaction generator with build in wallet (so it can sign before sending transactions). I know there are others out there, but its a good test of the APIs and I think its useful to have this app to test really large blocks and to check how the different clients handle them.

I also want to thank everyone for supporting me on reddit, twitter and naturally here on bitbacker.

Special thanks goes to WecX and johnlankmoriarty who signed up for the Silver supporter level. This is much appreciated, I would not be doing this if it wasn't for the support you guys give.

Thank you!
