No need to: not particularly privacy conscious.

TOR is too slow for doing regular daily stuff. I don't really feel the need to wait for my packets to bounce around the world in exchange for a little privacy (at this time).

Nope.  Never heard of it before getting involved in bitcoins, and while I have now heard of it I don't have any particular need to use it.

I might look into it later if I am bored.

I don't use TOR but I do use a VPN. However that is mostly because it gets me around some draconian download caps (at the cost of putting me last in line for getting any bandwidth).

I actually heard about bitcoins, because I was browsing the tor network. I decided to see what was so bad about 4chan for my first time, and that led me to the hidden wiki where I saw a bunch of places that used bitcoins for there currency.

I use Tor quite often. It is a very valuable network which should be supported with new relays and exit nodes. When not using Tor, it is helpful to use a VPN based in a country such as Sweden. I would have to recommend prq.se because of their support for privacy guarded by strong cryptography and no traffic or connection logging. As well as their on-staff lawyers and being staunch defenders of free speech. If you have not heard of prq.se, various well known domains have been hosted there. Including Wikileaks and The Pirate Bay.

In fact, when dealing in any sort of transaction where you must communicate with another party, you should be using Tor or a VPN with strong cryptography to protect yourself and to help in keeping your communication private. If you are US based, your web traffic, SMS, calls, etc. are all being monitored. Your transactions via credit card, retail outlet club cards, and so on are all logged and can be viewed in real-time by federal agents. To not take steps to protect your privacy is scary to me. Yet you will hear time and time again, "I'm not doing anything bad! So I don't care."

Time is money. This means that if you have spare time, you can use it to make money.

Modular, open, and stack-able miner case.
