Hope someone can help me. I'm doing Fabian's simple-dapp-example. After setting up testnet and running the meteor application, I can query for the variables defined in the contract.js, but when I run web3.eth.getCode('0x89a0368e0021a72987a5fa547cb1d9b235194e2e'), I get 0x unlike what he gets in his video. So I conclude that the contract is not deployed onto the private chain, what am I missing here?

NVM, I got it. The console didn't like the keyword "var" for var contractInstance = GuessNumber.new({from: web3.eth.accounts[0], gas: 200000, data: contractCode});

Hi, I am currently learning about Ethereum and am going through the "cryptocurrency tutorial" (https://www.ethereum.org/token). Now that I have reached the next step "Improving your token", I'm supposed to go back to the source code and adding improvements. But I cannot find the code for the deployed contract. Am I missing something fundamental here? Thanks for any assistance!

Hi @dskioldebrand I'm a noob myself but I've got a couple steps further. As far as I can tell you just use the source and start over. Once a contract is deployed it is fixed. The code for the advanced token is at the bottom of the page. My problem is that I deployed the advanced token code and it doesn't seem to be working and I'm not sure why. Let me know if you get it to work.

IS there an ethereum wallet similar to coinbase or openledger that is a SaaS? I dont understand why each system needs to run a node if they are not going to mine, I suppose mist runs a geth client. For transactions, isnt a SaaS wallet sufficient? Is there aything like that

@daryllstrauss, thanks for replying. I did the same by just continuing the tutorial onward. I may be getting the same problem as you. When I deploy a contract of the advanced token I get a transaction confirmation, but with a red text displaying " No data is deployed on the contract address!".No token is created in my contract section of the wallet as the simple case. Is it the same for you?

@dskioldebrand Yes, that sounds like the same problem. Good to know it isn't just me. What's your wallet? I can send you my basic token just for fun.

@daryllstrauss sure thing! But it will have to be tomorrow. I am out on the countryside and left my dev laptop at home. I'll post it later
