Trying to bitcoins...confused.

Just be sure you don't accidentally the bitcoins.

Yeah, I hear it's dangerous.

This can easily be avoided by following the proper precautions. Simply the bitcoins.

Just an idea, but wouldn't it be a bit more interesting if the timer only resets if the last payment bursts a bubble?
Thoughts? Concerns?

Thanks for taking the time to read my idea :-)
Ooh, I like that idea. It would make it a lot more fun.

Me too, it would be a bit like raising the minimum spend*, but in a variable way.

*Minimum needed to reset the timer

i only have 50 btc so if want them you need to hurry.

I bought BTC 10 from this guy, and I can attest that the trade went smoothly without any complications.

har.. har.. thanks for being completely obtuse.

I think you mean facetious.

I refuse to consider agnostic "weak believers". If anything, I consider agnosticism the true non-belief of faith in general. Atheists and theists are both believers in different faiths and sometimes they both can be just as radical. It's easier, and more true, to admit that I just don't know, however that doesn't mean that I agree with any notion of religion or how it's used to manipulate the people.

I usually think of agnostics as "weak non-believers."  Wink

Personally, I don't believe in anything until I've seen the evidence; verifiable, quantifiable, reproducible evidence, that is.

I can put together a wordpress based site very easily.
1808  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Bitcoin Bubble Game (with jackpot) on: May 17, 2011, 07:51:55 PM
I think 8 hours is too long for the initial timer. If the game started at 5 or 4 hours, it would be much more exciting, IMO.
1809  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: A simpler explanation, please... on: May 17, 2011, 07:46:23 PM
The value of bitcoins isn't being "injected artificially," it's been agreed upon by a group of individuals who see the benefits to using a decentralized, encrypted, electronic currency. The growing popularity has caused some incredible growth in the exchange rates, but ultimately its worth will be realized in the commerce it facilitates. I, and many others, I'm sure, doubt bitcoins will ever completely eradicate all other forms of currency, but believe instead it will come into its own with those who have become disillusioned with the current global economies.

Personally, I don't feel the need to convince anyone that bitcoins are valuable. I believe it. As a matter of fact, I believe it enough to trade you a pound of coffee for 1.95 BTC. Interested?

I used the mybitcoin merchant tools to create an encrypted link (see the Tip Jar at the top of the BitBrew site).
1811  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: What mining gear is in highest demand? on: May 17, 2011, 06:05:04 PM
I am thinking about buying some mining hardware in bulk.  I've contacted suppliers to get quotes on a few items, but I'd like some further input.  What mining hardware would you most like to see in a bitcoin mining store?

Damn, bearbones, you're seeing all the same niches I am.
1812  Other / Off-topic / Domain Name Squatting on: May 17, 2011, 03:46:36 PM
I've seen this issue come up in certain threads and was wondering what the overall feeling is concerning Domain Name squatters.

Personally, when thinking of a website or business name, I assume that the best ones will already be taken unless I have some very specialized niche I'm hoping to fill. I consider it a challenge to come up with something catchy, descriptive, short, and unique. Of course, it can be a bit irritating seeing domains sitting idle when I could be putting them to good use.
1813  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is it too hard to enter the bitcoin world? on: May 17, 2011, 03:30:41 PM
Back on topic:

How hard is it to acquire any currency if you're new to the game?

If I land on the shore of some foreign country, with only the clothes on my back, I'll have to either rely on the kindness of strangers or find something to do in exchange for money. I don't see how Bitcoin is any different.
1814  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: more bitcoin spam email (this could become a problem) on: May 17, 2011, 03:22:15 PM

I'm not crying wolf here.

My point was that I strongly believe that this e-mail was not sent with good intentions. The e-mail referenced this forum because it is a certain source of pro-bitcoin comments that the reader would immediately notice.

Spamming hurts us, sure. What do you suggest people to do? Surpass their bitcoin feeling?

I think he's suggesting not spamming.
1815  Economy / Marketplace / Re: BitBank is now in Beta on: May 17, 2011, 01:59:16 PM
Ill be taking a bitcent for every 10 BTC you deposit...

So I'd be paying you for the privilege of loaning my bitcoins out to someone else so you can collect interest?
1816  Economy / Marketplace / Re: xkcd's bitcoin hole on: May 17, 2011, 11:55:32 AM
He was on #bitcoin-otc yesterday (I was so excited!) He said he took it down because he didn't want to endorse something purely for profit. He is still using bitcoin, though.

I think the main point to take away from this is that he considers his bitcoins "profit."

edd, I'm likely to order from you if you start offering Ethiopian coffee or something with a similar flavor.

I'll be expanding my selection very shortly. I found a local roaster and I hear good things about them. Expect a lot of activiy at the site over the next few days.
1818  Other / Obsolete (selling) / Re: Buy coffee with Bitcoins at on: May 17, 2011, 02:37:16 AM
New coffee added - Organic Peru!

More coming very soon!
1819  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who or Where do I buy BTC? on: May 16, 2011, 03:44:55 AM
Also, perhaps you should try the "Marketplace" instead of "Bitcoin Discussion".

Yes, this definitely belongs there. You should also do some searching for related threads to see how difficult it will be for a newcomer to establish trust.
1820  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: bitcoin intrusion in your life on: May 16, 2011, 01:16:25 AM
I discovered Bitcoins about six weeks ago and curse the fates that had previously obscured them from me every day. It takes me about two hours to drive the bitcoin related thoughts from my head enough so that I can doze off for a couple of hours each night, but they make their way back in and wake me well before my alarm goes off.

My co-workers must think I'm doing drugs because I'm constantly sneaking off to check my email notifications, the current rate of exchange, any bitcoin related news, recent forum posts, etc. I'm fantasizing about new areas of business that I might venture into, as well as growing my current intrerests. Every piece of news I come across makes me think, "How will this affect the bitcoin market?" followed immediately by, "How else can I acquire bitcoins? What hasn't been thought of, yet?"

If I was a psychologist, I'd be tempted to write a paper on this.
