Hey all.

Started learning about BTC's and keep getting redirected to this site through various google searches. Figured I might as well come here and introduce myself and work on devouring all the knowledge that's been accumulated here already. Hopefully one day, I'll be able to explain this to my not so techie friends/family members; as from what I can tell that will be key in making this currency more commonplace!

Hope you're all having a great one!

Hey all,
just arrived, bought my first bitcoins not so long ago, feel pretty good about it.

Will defenately put more money into it, but will wait for calmer times, the current climb is insane.

Fairly new to bitcoin (Crypto-currencies).

Mined Bitcoin using 1 MSI 6870 over the past few months (Accumulated a little over 2 coins).
Running at about 275 Mhash/s.

Started mining Litecoin using the same card about a week ago (Accumulated a little over 40 coins).
Running at about 330 Khash/s.

I currently have 2 more 6870's coming and will soon be mining Bitcoin or Litecoin at around 825 and 990 respectively.

Hi.  I am glad to have joined the forum.  I am a sotware engineer working in the San Francisco Bay area.  I mined bitcoins for a while about a year ago and am getting back into it again.  I'm thinking of purchasing an ASIC miner but sounds like it will take months to acquire.

Hello,
   I am not really new to Bit Coins, however I have never been much of a joiner. I am learning that People really do help each other out, and display patience, and caring in the forums that are run with common sense, and respect. I am happy to have joined this forum and hope I will learn and contribute. One other thing I joined today was "Charity Ad" they said it was necessary to post my Id so I will comply: 719016-675df290c0b3149c38fa70f61d9a19e0

Learned about Bitcoin recently, I hope it's not too late.

I am a computer/semiconductor professional (FPGA,ASIC,SoC), so have some background on implementing algorithms similar to Sha256. Also I am fascinated by the idea, I think it will have huge social and economic impact, which most politicians, economists, philosophers, bankers haven't realized yet.

Hi all,

new to BTC but I really like the philosophy. I have yet to purchase any but I'm considering exchanging silver for BTC.

The biggest thing holding me back is that I am not from a computer programming background. I do not have the foundational knowledge to understand much of the things that can keep me and my BTC safe.

I do not know how to keep a wallet safe whether it be a wallet stored and backed up on disc/usb/paper or online.

I do not know how to conduct transactions in a manner that will not expose my IP address etc. (if this is even a concern)

I do not know how to keep my machine clean and free of malware/loggers etc other then having avast installed and running on my machine, I do not know if this is even enough or worthwhile.

I consider myself an average and possibly above average layperson that can use a computer.

I think BTC has a huge potential in revolutionizing commerce/civil liberties but perhaps the greatest impediment to it's adoption is the things I have mentioned.... along with an entrenched/lack of knowledge of monetary systems and economics.

Each day I know more then the last but my knowledge is so fragmented that I am having trouble putting it together. I have been doing lots of reading (here and the rest of the web)trying to understand whats needed to keep me safe but there seems to be a lack of a good repository of  information understandable to beginners/non tech savvy. Whenever I search for information I find something that seems to discuss it and it either gets sidetracked or discussed at a level beyond my understanding....

trying not to get discouraged..

Thanks
