I am Tony F of the CottonFog Farm. I support bitcoin because I am thoroughly awake to the fact that my freedom has been trampled by outside forces that benefit greatly from having a monopoly on a debt based currency. I want to own some bitcoin. I currently have silver bullion and livestock that I will sell for bitcoin. Face to face in central florida or silver via mail. I have spent all weekend learning about bitcoin and I am certain that I would like to own some as well as mine for them. My computer is only producing 4.5/mhs using a gui CLminer. I want to buy a decent dedicated mining rig but only have silver bullion and dollars (mostly silver - i need the dollars to pay my bills) to spend at the moment. i looked into buying bitcoin via exchange but talk about a hassle. That is just sooooo much trouble. Id rather just buy a machine and let it run and let it pay for itself via pool mining. I have been mining for almost 24 hrs at the moment and have only earned 3/10 of a single penny at a price of $15/BTC. If I could average 2/ week I would be happy if the machine cost about $500.
I have been a contributing member of Economic Fundamentals google group for about 3 years and on youtube a bit longer. www.youtube.com/tonyfarese
I first heard about bitcoin from Max Keiser. Then i read a crappy article in Bloomberg Business Week. Then a youtube channel I subscribe to (DonHarrold) put out a video bad mouthing bitcoin yesterday. I get news from various sources so I do my own research. Don has been loosing credability lately. Either way, I do not agree with his views and I am here to do the things I mentioned above. If anyone is in central florida (deland area) and can help me out w/ a mining rig or wants to buy siver w/ bitcoin or fresh Berkshire pork or live hogs or milk goats I would like some bitcoin. Fresh goat milk or free range chicken eggs. Thanks for reading my intro.

Just saying hello-- I'm interested in BitCoin because of Snow Crash, the same as most other people. I've been mining for a while, but haven't bothered to post to the forums yet, clearly a mistake.

Just saying hi

Been quietly following the bitcoin for a while and grimacing (was contemplating buying it when it was 1:1 w/ USD not so long ago). Decided time to take the plunge! But it';s more complicated than anticipated, so joining this forum to hopefully get some help from the community.

I love bitcoin because it's so complicated at first sight Cheesy

That's why I'm here.  Stumbled across Bitcoin on some website.  Got thoroughly confused.

Life was boring.  It needed some confusion. 

Confusing things tend to be more useful in the end.  And if they're not, at least they're fun.

Infatuated with Bitcoin's ingenious, elegant design.
Love the lessons I've been learning about trading, trust, and community.
Brainstorming some possible ways to contribute; thinking of an escrow service that slowly trickles BTC at a set rate from one account to another, to spread out risk in a low-trust ongoing-service relationship (let me know if that sounds interesting to you).

please do so! and get some posts Smiley
don't be so negative, the 50-post-rule is there for a reason: to get rid of the trolls. NOT to piss newcomers off.

relax take it easy and smile. Cheesy

So am I understanding this correctly?
A new registered account has to have 50 posts before being able to post/reply to threads in other areas of the forum?
This is to help cut down on spam and such?
Seems awfully counter-intuitive seeing as I've been a member of other forums for years without even achieving that many posts. It sure seems like your trying to encourage spam posts such as:

I'm Batman.
I'm Batman.

Can you use that big spotlight you have to shine a giant bitcoin symbol?
Actually I been thinking about spotlighting my sack.  Nothing like a big ass Teabag in the sky. 

Since I'm sure there are no Gotham residents here, for a small fee I will take a pic of my wall showing a teabag of a flashlight

LMAO.

No offense to those quoted, they were just the first few from this thread.

That aside, I've acquired two rigs with 2x HD 5770's and am looking forward to mining.

Hi all,

I'm pretty new to bitcoins and my main focus is on mining! I'm not really out to make cash or anything I just like to tinker with computers, and mining looks like a fun way to do it  Grin

I'm currently mining on a single 5850 which I set up over the weekend (and have made 0.25 BTC so far, w00t). I overclokced it a bit and managed to get 310 MHash/sec pretty easily. From my brief readings it looks like significant performace gains can be got from underclocking your GPU. Not really sure why this is but hopefully some of you guys can help me out with that.

cheers
JP

If you under clock your video RAM you'll see improvements using a worksize of 256 in my experience.

My settings:
GPU: 1065 MHz
RAM: 300 MHz
VCC: 1.11

phoenix.py -k phatk VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP=false AGGRESSION=12 WORKSIZE=256

Yeilds me 235 Mh/s on a Radeon HD 5770

lol, I'm already doing a little better than 235, but I guess thats just the difference in cards Cheesy

Thanks for the tip I'll let you know if I can get it up and running. I tried doing a GPU up/Mem down underclock at stock voltages but could not get anywhere near 1000 Mhz for GPU or 300 Mhz for mem.

That's 235 Mh/s for $90 @ 108W, this is a good speed for my card (5770).

According to https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison you should be able to achieve around 392 Mh/s with the proper settings on a 5850.

If you're running linux, check out AMDOverdriveCtrl project on sourceforge, it allows you to underclock and such.

I'm new to bitcoin, I don't understand how bitcoins are transferred from your account on 'freebitcoins.org' to your wallet?
It all seems a bit confusing but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it!

Really wish I would have gotten into this earlier! I sold my 5870 for 314 on ebay and purchased a 6970 on newegg for 309(after rebates) I didn't plan on mining with the 6970 but was trying to cash in on bitcoin by selling the 5870 for much more than it's worth. Decided to give mining a try for a couple of days and now I'm hooked. Purchased a second 6970 and hoping I can make enough bitcoin to pay it off. Currently hashing at ~700 mh/s going to deepbit.

Hello. My name is Mike (actually Michael) and after reading about bitcoin, both from an economic and technical perceptive, I am impressed and excited. Can't wait to start buying some bitcoins from some exchanges, and trading, and most importantly, spending them on things. Read many threads on this forum and this community is awesome!
