Hello Bitcoin Forum! I've been successfully mining at 250 MH\s for 3 days and decided I needed a place to talk.

Just another new bitcoin miner here saying hello.  I'm located in central VA if anyone wants to "talk shop."  I've actually found some good local computer stores that often have things in stock when places like Newegg and the rest go out.  I'm also pretty well versed in all things MacOS and Linux.

PM to say hello.

Hello Smiley

I'm from Bulgaria and a lot of people here are starting up their interest in BitCoins. I decided somehow got hooked too (maybe because of the idea of free CASH  Grin )

So anyway - are there any other Bulgarians here, that can maybe help me out a bit in pure Bulgarian Language, because I can't quite get a hold of it in English...

I just wanted to say hello.  It seems I'm really late to the party... but this is one of the coolest things I've ever heard of.

Hey there bitminers and bittraders!

I started mining just over a week ago and have built up just shy of 10 BTC so far. I now cannot bring myself to play games as this will delay my mining and minimise profits. So now all I do is watch the coins roll in, whilst learning C#, and pondering about the future of bitcoin.

At the current rate of BTC to GBP this seems to pay my monthly rent and electricity. This is something I still cannot quite wrap my head around.
Something I also noticed is that it seems to be the strongest currency in the world at the moment..

Anyway, someone stated that the US federal reserve does not like bitcoin. At first I thought this was obvious but on second thoughts, there is nothing stopping 'them' from profiting huge amounts too.
So at the risk of seeming naive; What is to stop 'them' or some other huge corporation dedicating a huge supercomputer-like-cluster to mining and suddenly having lets say 70% of the total hashing power, and doing what people accuse deepbit of having the possibility of doing (whatever that is, though I suspect its just jealousy)

BetweentheFabric: If someone controls over 50 % of the computing power, they can (re-)write new blocks of history as they choose. Besides deciding what will and what won't make it into the blockchain (thus arbitrarily accepting or rejecting transactions), they could also double-spend their bitcoins.

The kind of risky investment bitcoins are at the moment, however, I guess most rich people have many more profitable options than paying a lot for rapidly outdating hardware to make a few bitcoin users angry.

Yours

I'm new to the forum and sort of new to BC been following it a couple months.  Not really kicking myself that I didn't get in when it was under a dollar, no sense in that.  Just here to learn as much as I can about, interesting concept.

I'm from the US. I'll be mining at >1 Gh/s within the week on two 6970s and a 6770 + other random computers.

I made this utility: Bitcoinvert.com - It's a currency conversion calculator between Bitcoins and major currencies. Try it out, and let me know what you think.
