It says on your "How to Order" (http://richchomiczewski.wordpress.com/home/how-to-order/) page that you only accept PayPal. Would you also take Bitcoin, and if not, do you plan to accept Bitcoin soon? I don't use PayPal, but I still want one of these, so if you started accepting Bitcoin, you'd certainly get an order from me!
2  Economy / Goods / Re: [Sold!] 1.25 GH/s Mining Rigs for $500 shipped (16 Total) on: January 12, 2012, 02:40:25 AM
Arrived yesterday! Honestly, if this guy told me they were brand new and never used, I'd have definitely believed him. It all looks like it's never been touched before, let alone used for mining for months! No dust or fingerprints or anything! Definitely in great shape! Most parts were in their original box and anti-magnetic bag (and those that weren't in their original box were still in their own individual anti-magnetic bubble-wrap bag.

Anyway, I bought two of these miners and assembled them, and they're chugging along at almost 2.4 GH/s. I'll be keeping a close eye on everything this seller has available! Definitely a great seller!

Hacking:
If you keep important files on an computer that isn't secure, you can lose those files. If those files are literally a pile of money, then people will try to get them. If you keep them on a secure computer, then (for the most part) you have nothing to worry about.

Anonymity:
It's not perfectly anonymous. Anyone can see your BTC address, and they can see what BTC addresses you send money to, but they don't necessarily know your name unless you make that public.

I know that you said you'd prefer Paypal, but I'll buy it from you right now for 17.5 BTC (which is exactly $252.3 USD as I'm writing this), but only if I can pay with Bitcoins. I simply will not pay through Paypal. I don't have any money in my old Paypal account and it's not attached to any credit cards or bank accounts, and I don't want to set it up for just one purchase. It's just a lot easier for me if the transaction is done in Bitcoins instead of with Paypal.

Let me know if you're ok with this. I completely understand it if you're not.

Thanks.
7  Other / Beginners & Help / Spelling and capitalization of the word "bitcoin" on: June 20, 2011, 03:42:24 PM
So is it "Bitcoin" or "BitCoin" or "bitcoin"? When can/should I use "BTC"?

There should probably be more official rules for its spelling and capitalization. Just sayin.'
8  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Eye opening CBS interview with bitcoin administrator Gavin Anderson on: June 18, 2011, 04:37:26 PM
That's not Gavin Andreson. That's Jeff Garzic.

And the interviewers are just sitting there trying to get him to admit that everything about BTC is illegal and that everyone who has ever used it should be thrown in jail for the rest of their life. This video is just four people who hate BTC and one guy whose public speaking skills are mediocre at best.

Not that I didn't learn anything from this video, though. It reminds you how many people simply don't understand BTC and how hard it is for some people to understand that Silk Road and Bitcoins are two completely different things.

There's no one person who runs the network. Basically, it's run by a massive cluster of computers around the world run by people all over the world. Each of these computers is running the same computer program, which dictates exactly how the network should run. So instead of it being run by one person, it's (basically) run by a computer program that won't change.

Apparently OP isn't having too much luck with the girls, why else would he have created this thread?

I'm not 100% sure of OP's gender, but Gabrielle (which is OP's username) is a girl's name (or at least, all the Gabrielles I've ever known are female).

Not having too much luck with the girls isn't something most girls consider unlucky.

Maybe there could be a system where if your BTC client isn't opened for a pre-determined length of time (a few months I suppose), it automatically divides it up properly and sends it out to your loved ones.

I realize that doesn't make much sense, because you have to turn on your computer and log in for the BTC client to do anything. I just thought of it a few seconds ago and typed it out as I was still thinking about it. Maybe someone else can finish that idea.

Or you could just give your loved ones the password for your computer. I know it's hard to trust anyone else with a computer's master password, but if you can't trust your loved ones not to use the password when you're alive, then maybe you should rethink giving them your entire fortune when you pass away. Or you could have a special password just for the BTC client on your computer that's given to your lawyer and they can't show it to anyone until you die, and then when you put it into a computer it sends out your remaining BTC... or something like that...

I realize none of these solutions are completely perfect (yet) and they need to be more thought-out. But that's a really interesting question. Never really thought about that... Just my 0.02 BTC.
12  Other / Obsolete (selling) / $50 American Eagle Outfitters Gift Card on: June 08, 2011, 09:58:04 PM
I recently received a $50 gift card to American Eagle Outfitters. However, I don't shop there, so I have no need for it. I'm selling it for 2 BTC or best offer. Send me a PM if you want it. I will send you the card number and pin number in a PM. The card number and pin number can be used to shop on their website, www.ae.com. I will use ClearCoin if you want to.

Thanks.
