Hello everyone!

I've only recently discovered this amazing phenomena and cant stop reading as much as I can.

My girlfriend tells me that I've probably gotten someone else :-) and that I spend during the weekend almost 20 hours in front of the computer.

Naaah!

It can't be!

Little did she know that I was reading like crazy so I can configure the best price/performance ratio mining rig possible and placing orders to build 2.

So, imagine her surprise when I brought in on Monday the truck load of parts and declared that I am going to build data-crunching gear and going to make some money with it!

2 hrs later and I had the 2 quad-5780 machines working mildly overclocked (1.53 Gh/s each) as part of a pool that pays instantly.

Just now, I've got 2.5 shiny new BTC's in my Bitcoin (well, little bit more, but let's keep the anonymous nature of the BTC, right?)

Sweet!

Take care all!



When do you calculate that your rigs will pay for themselves and start making a profit (taking the power bill into account)?

Wish I could afford just one of your machines

Hmmm...I am too noob at this stage and my pea brain is not capable of doing such complex calculations - I am an engineer by trade, not an accountant.

I did use idle money to buy the components for those rigs though, so I am not looking to do this as an investment - just a new toy to play with and learn - and if I manage to make a BTC or two in the process - hey, it's even better!

Not wanting to boast, but I am already onto my next project - a quad 6990 rig with a single 1600W PSU - I have not seen anyone so far claiming to have done it - but my friendly local computer supplier says that she is going to give me a good discount on the 6990 stock that is not moving quickly, why would I say no to that?

take care all

Greetings Fellow Bitcoiners,

While I have been involved in the Bitcoin economy for a while now, I have just gotten around to registering with the community. Since I did so, I thought now would be as good a time as any to introduce myself, so here I am.

I'm an American anarcho-capitalist, social and political activist, and sometimes writer who actively runs three different (and successful) agorist businesses. I believe strongly in the principles of liberty and believe each man has an unalienable right to keep what he earns or share it with others only as he pleases. I do not and have never believed that we should petition our governments for anything as we are not their serfs and should never act as though we are. We are free men and women and we should act like it in every way.

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone. If you're an agorist and looking for make new business connections or if you're just looking for new friends, feel free to message me.

Laissez-faire,
Guy Fawkes

Hi,

I'm an academic researcher and futurist. I became interested in Bitcoin while research disruptive technology in financial markets last year. While a guest on this site and following Bitcoin quite a bit, I am finally getting involved with the community.

Nice to meet you all! Smiley

Hello everyone, I first found out about Bitcoin in April 2010, mined 50 coins, and have just discovered the community again in the last month since I started hearing about it from different news sources, even the mainstream media! Shocked

Anyway, I am a web developer and have started day trading on the exchanges. The big problem I see with Bitcoin in the long-term of course is that there simply isn't much you can buy with them yet, and I think that is why recently there's been a run-up of $20 USD/1 BTC down to $12. Happy trading all and look out for the bubbles Smiley

I agree, there is an anti-spam technique known as CAPTCHA, although that doesn't stop the human-generated spam or the trolls.

Hi I've been on the forums lurking and taking in information for around a month and a half. I have several ideas I would like to pitch to the Bitcoin community regarding website ideas and business ideas. I look forward to throwing these ideas around with other community members in the near future. Currently I have one website near completion and another website still in the initial thought-development phase.

Bitcoin is a remarkable opportunity and I am happy to take part in it and contribute to intelligent discussion where I can!
