Hello everyone!!

First off this board has been full of wonderful information and have helped me begin my research into Bitcoins.
I would like to give a particular thanks to those who posted the information on OpenCL as I had some issues
getting the GUIMiner to detect my video card. This forum is certainly filled with a wealth of information.

I am here because of an academic interest in Bitcoins and many other on-line currencies.
I am currently working on a college paper for my masters in economics and have decided
that the subject will center completely on digital currency's. In several of my past papers
I looked at currencies; such as, Lindens from Second life, WOW gold, FFXI gil, and many
others. I like to try an experience how things work, and try out various areas of the on-line
currencies.

Anyway thought this looked like a good spot to say hello.
I hope that I will be able to ask numerous questions on this board.


Sincerely & Respectfully,
Waveaura

I just read through all 606 pages of this thread in 26 minutes, and my eyes are now turned inside out.  Cry

Seriously, I've been perusing this forum and some other bitcoin-related sites for a few hours on and off, trying to figure out the best way to get my feet wet. I don't plan on doing any bit mining, my hardware is old, but I do have things to market - been in woodcrafts for a long time and have been selling on Etsy, so I may try a personal shopping cart with bitcoin. I also create 3D graphics on a serious hobbyist level for occasional cash. Might try some light investing too. Name is Ken, from Wisconsin.
I like cheese, beer, and home brewed wine. I hate football.

Hi!  Finally done reading through all 606 pages! j/k  

I'm both new and not new to Bitcoin.  I first heard about it a couple years ago and I started to get into it, then I guess I just lost interest or forgot about it, maybe after not finding an easy to set up miner (if I was on Linux)...  I don't remember.  I do remember the huge block chain download that my terrible connection couldn't handle in a decent time.  Maybe I thought, "Eh I'll try this later."  Then my computer got fried in a storm and I had been without a good desktop for almost two years, til a couple months ago when I built a new one finally.

So then I heard Max Keiser talk almost rabidly (he said it _could_ be the second coming of Christ!...) about Bitcoin on the Alex Jones show, and how it was then at $40, and the whole Bitcoin excitement slammed me pretty hard.  I've been obsessed ever since.  I have OCD so that just multiplies the obsession. ;p  Yep, I'm re-reading this to make sure it's "just right", OCD style.  Anyway...

Now I'm in a constant state of excitement, anxiety, and feeling like I started too late.  I've been scrambling to at least get started before Bitcoin really takes off.  I went into debt $800 buying an ebay November pre-order Jalapeno, and another one from BFL a week ago (before the price jump).  Btw, if anyone knows that my purchase/s was/were a big mistake, please let me know before it's too late. ;p  So far it seems good, since BFL is starting to show itself as not a scam and that they're on the edge of shipping, but I'm paranoid that the difficulty will go up 10x by next month before I get my miners... sigh.

So either I got into this too late (though it's still WAY early in the entire lifespan of Bitcoin I'm realizing, if nothing huge happens and kills it somehow) or at just the perfect time.  I hope it's the latter.  I do kick myself all the time now for not mining 2-3 years ago and buying BTC for under $1!!

I'm GPU mining Bitcoin at 84Mh/s, and also Litecoin now at 50-100Kh/s and that's pretty fun.  I set up four computers at the school I intern at, three at work, my laptop, and this box for LTC, bwahaha.  Btw, I'm sure at least some of you feel the same as me when I say that when I'm dealing/playing with BTC, I feel more free and actually motivated to care about money in general!

Hi,
I heard from BTC a few years (?) ago but wasn't interedted. Don't know exactly when. The only thing i remember was the exchange rate of $35/BTC if I'm not mistaken. Then, a few months later I found BTC interesting but the rate was at ~$2/BTC.

So I decided for myself that BTC has no future and didn't care about it. Recently I have bought a HD 7870 for hashcracking (Games + AMD Driver = BSOD). And so I looked in Bitcoin again and was vexed to not have 50x my money ;_;

Atleast I have mined 50€ and I'll observe this because BTC could be soooo big. And I'm too curious with the skyrocking of the prices. Smiley

What have I gotten myself into this time?  Starting off with a GPU on bitcoin and hoping when the time comes to get into other crypto currencies.  ¡Viva la Revolución!
