Hi everyone, I'm David. For the last 5 years I've been running a social games start up, that stopped at some point last year.

I first saw bitcoins about 6 months after they came out. I tought, mine them for $0.05 a bitcoin, you gotta be kidding me, i got better things to do! Boy was I wrong ;-) Wish I could turn back time haha.

I've been into bitcoins for about 3 days now and i'm fascinated, I hope to find out a lot more about them on this forum.

Hi all,

I've lurked for quite a while, but I've register an account only yesterday. 

well I've mined for a few days, using btcmine.com's pool,  back in nov '11
but my radeon 5750 was already to weak to mine properly. To be honest one reason to stop
my mining  activity was the negative trend of BTC/USD had at that time.
in fact btc lose ground against dollar for a few months in a row since
June 2011 (when the first bubble burst) till Jan '12. Thinking about it now
I would say I was quite short-sighted, hopefully this is not the case anymore.

Anyway I'm here trying to spread my knowledge about bitcoin.
In the long term I'm interested in both mining and trading.
Of course I'm quite fascinated by all the feedbacks/effects that
virtual fiat currency, like bitcoin,  has on the real world.

Hi, I'm new (obviously) to mining, but very interested in the decentralized nature of BTC.  I'm a bit of an econ geek and it's been really exciting to see a currency take root organically, so I've decided to join the party.  Of course joining the mining party makes me wish I were a computer geek instead!  So I have a question and I've seen it maybe answered before but without the specifics I am interested in addressed, so please bear with me if this has been asked and answered a thousand times:

I purchased 5 BTC from a private seller and gave them my Electrum generated 'receive' address.  This was last night.  I am not so much worried that I have not received the BTC as I am that I don't see the address (is this a hash?) when I search for it at either blockchain.info or blockexplorer.  B.E. returned a report that the address was "First Seen/Never used on the network" and B.C. shows "No. of Transactions - 0"

The BTC should have been sent about 7 hours ago.  I have checked my wallet against the BlockExplorer block count and they are both showing 229662.  I sort of understand that the transactions are verified as a function of their block being mined/solved(?) and I guess it could be that it hasn't yet, but shouldn't it have appeared somewhere in these records by now if the send was initiated on his end?  I am told it will need 6 verifications, so I also am wondering will it only show after all 6 or after the very first?

My wallet is set to .0001 for transaction fee but I guess maybe that's only if I am sending?

Finally, I have the Electrum wallet installed and running but no other software installed as I haven't started mining.  Is this a problem for receiving?

I know it's a lot of questions, but I promise I am a quick learner and you won't have to tell me twice  Grin

Just started mining.

I'm a web developer / system admin.

When you look at this thread the pages and quick buttons are pretty ugly (happens to any thread with many many pages)

I'd adjust the CSS for the default theme in such a way:

Code:
#toppages {
    width: 70%;
}

There's also another TD, with quick links to take, that doesn't have a class or ID but likely should be vertical-align: bottom;
