The Bitcoin Faucet now shows how many coins it has available to give out (on the left-hand side of the page). The number is only moderately accurate– donations will take 5 or 10 minutes to show up in the balance.
I also implemented another anti-cheating measure that should make casual cheating a little harder (which I don’t want to say too much about because that would make it easy for cheaters to know what to do).
I’m very pleasantly surprised at how well freebitcoins is working so far; thanks again to everybody who tried it out and who donated bitcoins to it!
Excellent choice of a first project, nice work. I had planned to do this exact thing if someone else didn’t do it, so when it gets too hard for mortals to generate 50BTC, new users could get some coins to play with right away. Donations should be able to keep it filled. The display showing the balance in the dispenser encourages people to top it up.
You should put a donation bitcoin address on the page for those who want to add funds to it, which ideally should update to a new address whenever it receives something.
