Been reading through this intro thread for the first time and wanna say firstly - "I love ya's all!"  Grin

Never done an intro here so figured I should.

I only got into Bitcoin recently after reading about in on another forum. My curiosity was spiked immediately when I discovered this was not a centrally controlled currency and so got into reading all I could. The first article I read said something along the lines of - "this is how Bitcoin works, oh and you can mine for coins too if you like but thats only for the geeks.." and that immediately got my attention! Being a professional geek (employed full time in the IT field and have run my own computer business) I knew right there and then mining was going to be for me even though I had no clue how it worked Grin

Currently mining with 2 x 6950's but looking to expand in the near future. Have already made plans to move into larger accommodation to facilitate a few new rigs.

Good luck to you all and welcome aboard! I'm sure this is going to be one hell of a ride, as its proven to be already.


If you like my post please feel free to give me some positive rep https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=18639

-Wallets should be encrypted by default. (you would only need to decrypt them when sending bitcoins.)
- Some kind of build-in escrow service into the protocol (else we need third parties again which is the same problem the current money system has)
- easier to use (copy and pasting bitcoin addresses is fine for us techies but not for my mother)

1. (Encrypted wallets) I totally agree.
2. I don't understand you: An escrow service means nothing else than having a 3rd party involved.
3. A system like DNS would be of use here: mapping names (domains, email addresses or anything) to the addresses (IPs, here: bitcoin addresses). But this would remove a lot of the anonymity of the current system and create a further target for hacking attacks (MITM attack forging a 'DNS entry').

"So, I have this idea for a great movie. It's about two gnomes who find a bracelet of power, and they have to take it to the Burning Steppes and cast it into the Cauldron. They form the Brotherhood of the Bracelet. Along the way they're trailed by a murloc named Gottom, who's obsessed with the bracelet, and nine bracelet bogeymen. It could be a three-parter, called 'Ruler of the Bracelet'. The first part would be called 'The Brotherhood of the Bracelet', followed by 'A Couple of Towers', with the climactic ending called 'Hey, the King's Back!'"

- World of Warcraft /silly command


Incidentally, the best way to make sure newbies aren't pissed off by not being able to post in other threads might be to better publicize that they have to post here first. I was wondering all over the boards wondering why I couldn't post until I ran across this section.

Hi Everyone,
I'm an iOS & Android Developer and a bitcoin aficionado. I'm just getting started with the basics, and don't expect to be mining anytime soon until I replace my crappy hardware, lol  Grin. So I'm diving in head first and I hope I learn and help others to learn this world-changing technology. Its definitely a whole new ballgame. Look forward to chatting with you guys!

Btw this thread has 1337 replies! Woot!  Grin

Feel Generous?

Location: USA

Actual Job: Sophisticated algorithmic trader focused primarily on domestic (US) equities. High frequency, high volume (millions of shares/day).

Been following bitcoin developments for the past few months. Haven't been trading it due to poor exchange software. If large-scale traders like myself are going to get seriously actively involved in the btc markets there needs to be much better exchange software. $500,000 per single trade isn't anything to me in the stock market (and do many many of those daily) but I don't trust the BTC exchanges at all to handle even 1/10th that right now. Been considering coding up some open source exchange software for btc based on my extensive experience with equity market exchanges. At very least probably will be coding up some public data feed software for use by the general public - BTC tickerplants/feeds/etc. to encourage algorithmic trading. The current software/interfaces for it offered by the BTC exchanges is a total joke and entirely pathetic.

Profession: Software Engineer

I've been mining for over a month now and I'm running ~1.4 GH/s (soon to be ~1.7). My system makeup is currently 6950 unlocked x2, a 5830 (soon to be 2), and a 5850.  Hodge podge I know. The 6950s are for my main system and the 5830s I managed to snag from newegg. The 5850 was a craigslist deal.

Wow Johnnvm that sounds impressive. I would be interested in new software for the community. What language would you be using? I'm def interested especially if its open source.

I think I've been on here a couple+ weeks now and after hours of reading forum threads (Diablo and Hashkill mostly) I find it odd that I see no mention of running either of these on #! (CrunchBang Linux).  It seems such an obvious choice for a dedicated cruncher of any type.  

I was actually well down the road of converting my Ubuntu and Xubuntu dedicated BOINC crunchers to #! when #3 son got me interested in mining.  So other than one hold out (because I'm too lazy to redo software raid, samba, dhcp3-server, apt-cacher and ntp functions) that still runs Xubuntu all my 'crunchers' now run #!.  They all run BOINC on the CPU cores/threads and Diablo on the GPU(s).  Amazingly easy to build bitminer functions into the OpenBox menu (start Diablo, start AMDOverdriveCtl, start my GPU activity script, setfans, etc. etc.).  It's a whole lot lighter than Ubuntu (actually using PinguyOS on my desktop for now), is a fast install, Debian based so no quantum leaps for relative noobs (like me) that are use to Ubuntu.

BTW, If anyone gives it a try... I've had no luck with the optional liquorx kernal and so don't select that in the first logon/post install script that runs (and lets u bypass openoffice and cups, yeah!).

Happy mining, Skip

I'm a computer technician by trade and a full time web developer/designer by night. Completely new to bitcoin and completely enthralled by the possibilities of a decentralized currency. Started a bank account this week simply to tie to Dwolla for the sole purpose of handling bitcoins. I really wish I would have become more vested in it when I first heard about it.
