I'm a F@H guy who's running bit-coin for the summer because it covers the electricity costs, folding doesn't. I'm running about 2Ghash with no plans to for any larger investment.

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.

I'm Lorna.

I'm a model and photographer. I live in South Wales UK and run a website, two businesses and a family.

My programmer introduced me to this new currency. I'm game so I added a "join with bitcoin" option to my site.

If anyone has a comment about the way the button works or if there's something I can improve love to know Smiley

Love Lorna xxx

want to show your appreciation?

Hi, I'm Morten from Norway, really excited by this bitcoin thing, even though it's a bit of a hassle to buy any as a newbie living outside the US ;-)

Euro bank wire from a European bank is one of the easier routes for funding an account -- even for a Canadian...  Shocked



I don't know, I initiated a bank transfer to TradeHill last week, and still no money in my account... :-(

Getting some posts in so I can answer questions in other forums.  Grin

Pretty new to this stuff, but looking for ways I can incorporate this into my daily life. I'm running servers 24/7 so getting into some mining as well, even if it's small and maybe not worth it yet.

Been bitcoining since April, just not posting on the forums much. I tried a little bitcoin gambling early, lost like 3 coins total back when they were around $1 each, boy do I regret that now.

Want me to shut up? It's 1BTC/day Tongue
Check the firstbits.

I do not know how much you care or not, but one of your affiliates had a forced window take me to Webring.org

If you want to get Bitcoin customers, I highly suggest having a visible Bitcoin logo somewhere on that front page.  I would argue a good time right now is to put things next to the Twitter, Facebook, other social sites (not just you, but all non e-commerce sites).  Seeing as how you are kind of e-commerce, you really should have that icon/logo in at least two spots.

I understand you would think "eh.. I want to take Bitcoin, but I do not want to support it".. but I would go the route of having that as a focal point for a couple of weeks or a month.  Have it in the site prominent, I almost guarantee if you give it a little bit of time, the right people who are into Bitcoin will take notice and support.  Good luck, you look amazing Smiley
