Can I please be white listed? I don't have any specific questions to ask; I have my system up and running pretty consistently now. I'd just like to take part in active discussion.

At the time of writing this I went to and it showed 6532850.00000000. If you wait for a while and refresh the page you can watch it go up by 50 at a time. They have almost made 1/3 of all bitcoins that will ever be made.
How do you mean ''that ever will be made''?

This means that there will only ever be 21,000,000 bit coins on the market.  This is how Bitcoin will stay rare and not just "print" itself into worthlessness. 
So if the 21mil BTC are produced, the mining is over?

Yes, but each block becomes exponentially more difficult to resolve. The rate at which BTC are being distributed is dropping with every difficulty step increase.

If you're canadian, check out

I've sold a few BTC on there and although it is lacking liquidity yet (the site is only a week old), I was able to direct deposit into my bank account for only 2$ in fees.

I tried using dummy plugs with various resistors I bought ranging between 70 and 120ohms, and whenever I enable crossfire on my cards the system blue screens and reboots right away.

Has anyone else seen this issue before? Do you have to be using the exact same resistors? I followeded the steps of the following article to the T:

Hey everybody. I'm Husband. I've had my mining rig up and running for about a week and I'm at ~7 BTC so far. I've got 4x 5830's cranking out about ~1200 Mhash/s
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / Trading BTC for $$$ - In Canada? on: June 07, 2011, 05:01:07 PM

I'm a bit of a newb, so please excuse my newbish question...

I have an account on and would like to start buying/selling BTC that I've mined on my new system. I'd like to pocket some of the profits though to recover some cost.

What is the easiest way to get CAD $, or even USD into my bank account?

Just for the sake of confirmation, I installed four 5830s in an Antec 1200 last night and I only had to clip off a small portion of the bottom part of the metal backplate for the fourth card. They fit great... tons of room.
