Hello all! Bitcoin crossed my radar and I'm trying to purchase some .. IF I can get a client working and IF I can find a straight-forward way to transfer my money into MtGox. I'm finding some hurdles/learning curve with both.. Which brings me here, lol.

Have been watching the BitCoin prices surge over 10x in the past 60days, incredible! First started tracking it in January, had no idea it was on the cusp of taking off. Hopefully it will continue. Hopefully can cash-in before my govt.paper "money" evaporates entirely.  Grin

(And now I have 2 posts, yea)

Hi all, will try to do the 5 posts in here but I'd rather read than talk, so, besides a question here and there, I'll be a quiet one generally. 

I have a modest number of bitcoin and want to buy more but wow!  the prices! - bitfloor has a problem today and does not want to accept my buy order - I think it is a good thing at those prices and perhaps a little bit of luck is keeping me from paying at the current high.  Gotto go figure now how to put a limit order into the interface.  I have a modest mining pool going but I won't get rich on it - slow going. 

I'm into bitcoin as a form of activism and shunning the current cabal that has no respect for anyone else's humanity, work or money - and I like software anyway and have developed my fair share.   

If bitcoin continues as it has been there will be a host of other service type businesses needed, and that is where I'll be interested.   I see the marketplace gaps.

Howdy guys.  Awesome forum!  I got into bitcoin a few years ago.  Mined a little but eventually quit.  Kicking myself for not keeping with it.  Trying to get back into mining now since I like building and fixing computers as a hobby.

Tech/IT person with a recent interest in BTC.  Like a lot of people, I read up on it a few years back but wasn't keen enough to snatch up a few for potential investment.  Revisiting the benefits of distributed currency combined with the recent trend in valuation peeked my interest.  Doing some mining now, but nothing serious.  

Awesome community, glad to join!

Just discovered bitcoin about 2 weeks ago and I'm afraid I'm a bit obsessed with it and other crypto currencies already. Absolutely love the idea of the currency and want to support it.  I've been kicking around ideas for online services and businesses that would endorse it, and hoping to elaborate on them soon. IRL, I'm an IT System administrator, but so ready to get out of it so I can do my own things. I've already spent a good bit of time reading posts around here and finally opened up an account so I could participate.

I'm just that guy who hopes one day Bitcoin will be relatively stable and I'll be able to use it as a medium of exchange for almost anything.  The reason I joined this forum is to talk with other people who also have interest in BTC.

I'm new to mining, old to computers, and i've got this same problem. just realized it was a problem, too. cant seem to find any info on this kinda thing, so now it's time to be more proactive looking for a solution.

Hello! Long time lurker, first time poster. Been mining BTC since the initial buzz in 2011, and cashed out at $90. Now things are at $144! Will it ever stop?

Hi, my name's Mordrul, and I'm a recovering addict of fiat funny money.

I'm working on helping to create and grow a new model for society, that of voluntary human action, through spreading awareness and helping Voluntarists find one another.

I'm not actually a member of the church of Kopimism, but I am an adherent.

That's about it, I think.

Humanity itself is most likely to critically fail, as a species, if we do not evolve beyond the concept of deception and coercion as the model for civilization.
I am on Twitter at this same name.

Very interesting concept!! - Bitcoins - Decentralized banking -

inflation, security, Taxing??
_______________________________________________________________________________ ____

i'm new to all this and i like it. 

in my eyes the world banking system has created economic instability worldwide and by their actions are promting caos... and one comes to ask - where should i put my money, are the basic fundumentals of the banking system defeated, were banks not created to safegaurd our money? is it normal for the people to pay for the banks 'bad business'? - i consider that its un-acceptable for people to allow and continue to trust in a system which at-will taps into savings.

with that said i have my reservations about bitcoin concept.  Will the governemnts and current banking system allow such a transistion to bitcoin.  will they invest a lot of money and power to destroy it?

like i said i'm new here, i like it and i have decided to trust and endorse this movement with a nominal amount $ which i can live without.

Thats it for now!!
