I man form far Russian region Ural. Mining bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies about two years, now my small mining farm has 4 GH.
My main work is gas distribution service, engineering of computers and telemetry. Hobby also about computers and electronics - I collect old calculation machines and early PC from junkstores and try to revive it, sometimes successfully.
I member of FIDONet since 1996 - old computer professionals may remember that "noncommercial worldwide network". My node 2:5080/205 still alive and not so long was the celebration of our network's 2:5080 21-st anniversary.

I am paradoxically pleased to hear that a FidoNet node is still active.


If I may ask, why paradoxically?

Just seems like one of those occasions where the choice of wording might belie an interesting backstory (but if you never ask you'll never know, amirite?).

FidoNet was the cutting edge, in a time when ARPAnet was not available to the public.  I kept my ability to interact withh FidoNET for a very long time.  I read code that Tom Jennings had his name on, and studied it.  It mattered, a lot.  However, it seems somehow anachronistic, out of place with something such as BitCoin.  True, both FidoNET and Bitcoin have a moment of being cutting edge, it is unexpected that those moments would overlap; yet it is not at all surprising that people involved in one would be involved with the other.

This might make more, or less, sense if I have more, or less red wine at the moment.

I try to be respectful and informed.

hi.  i'm not batman. actually i am an experienced tech developer.  i got my start in the semiconductor field over 15 years ago.  then i joined the hell also known as IT.
hmm, i like to cook, i like loud music (for i can't hear it if it's quiet), and appreciate hip hop and jazz. and other things of recreational nature.

and i will hopefully be at the bitcoin convention coming up in California.

so that's me.  i hope i have something to share with this community of diversity.  i've been reading and researching.  started mining the first month bitcoins came into existence (publicly) but then foolishly focused on a different avenue of work.
it's just a hobby and i have a small gpu farm.  have a few pre-ordered asics like everybody else (on the hopeful way, future tense).

thanks and good day folks.  Smiley
cheers.

Hello. My name is Yuri, I'm from Estonia. Been hearing about bitcoin for a while.
Now just mining for fun (I know it does not pay off, but I don't really care right now) and watching the show.

Hi been lurking the boards for a few weeks now. I like the idea of bitcoins and hope it keeps growing like it has been. Just bought my first btc the other day and have turned it into over 10btc now. Its exciting learning about everything and hope to contribute more to the btc economy.
