www.ubitex.org is a startup service that seeks to match local buyers and sellers of bitcoin with eachother so that they can exchange in person. As a shareholder, I think it would be great if you used and advocated this service to others such as yourself in your area!

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

I love people who say they are "IT Professionals". Like plugging in an ethernet cable is as hard as programming.

I....just can't let this go. It's funny. Good job.
(I am a Systems Engineer, so a IT Pro, not a coder. And my job is comparable in difficulty  as coding. And harder to outsource)

I am an unemployed person of lower than average intelligence.
I managed to buy bitcoins after 20ms research.

Yes, bitcoin can be a bit difficult to get sometimes, but blame the money in your pocket for that, not bitcoin. You can't easily send cash to someone instantly unless you use a third party and those third parties need your information and time to collect funds, time to send funds, finish the transaction and so on. CCs are easy but only because you already have an account registered.
...

This is a good point that the OP can't see because it's so huge before him: Bitcoin is hard to do because the dominant money system does not WANT such things happening.  We have all been corralled in economic (and political and medical and legal and...well, you get it) fences.

But the OP should be given credit for attempting to take bold action.  Yes, he stopped to whine a bit, but now--chastened--he must return to the revolution.

I'm probably piling on, but this is an extremely important point. Bitcoins aren't difficult to "buy." Fiat is difficult to spend (or at least to spend in certain ways). The difficulties in exchanging fiat for bitcoins are entirely on the fiat side. (And they're hardly insurmountable.) And if you are "buying" bitcoins by selling goods and services, accepting those coins is pretty darn easy. So what initially sounds like a criticism of Bitcoin is actually a great demonstration of its power. I remember that first international wire transfer to Mt. Gox. It was expensive, a moderate pain in the ass, and it took days to go through. I also remember that first transfer of my newly-purchased coins to my personal wallet. The difference in terms of the time, effort, and expense(!) between those two experiences was instructive.

Yes, it is currently pining for the fjords, as is my investment.

Strange. Everyone in the Free State Bitcoin Consortium seems to like Coinbase. I've never used it, as I think 1% is too steep a fee, but I haven't heard of anyone who has been stiffed by it, and the user interface seems pretty polished.
