Hi everybody!

My name is Karsten, I am from fair Germany, and I go by the nick of kaosbit because I could not think of anything sensible.

I checked out bitcoins when a friend mentioned it to me, reading the whitepaper and some technical posts. Looks like an interesting bit of technology, pardon the pun, so I decided to get involved. I have no idea what I might actually use the BTC for once I get some... but then, I'm in for the fun and not for the money. We'll see.

In any case, I believe the whole topic may be good for a little software project or two, though I'm not sure when/if I ever might find the spare time. You know how it is with a full day job. But then, this gives my computer more idle time for mining!

Not sure what you guys usually have in terms of hardware; my platform probably is a tad exotic, being a Mac Pro 2 x 2.4 Quad Xeon with an ATI Radeon HD 5870. Apparently the GPU is good for mining, but the Apple OpenCL implementation seems to have its quirks. Diablo Miner gives me up to 211 mhashes, not too shabby, but below posted benchmark values. Oh well, I'll find some nice little pool to support.

Cheers,
kaosbit

Hi folks!

I started mining three weeks ago. I was going to post pictures and a description of my rig to the “Mining > Hardware > Pictures of your mining rigs!”-Thread, but it looks like I'll be stuck here for a while...  Smiley

Just discovered bitcoin, a bit obsessed!  

but I've already learned: mining isn't for me.  My slow little laptop can't do much, and I can't get any of those mining programs to work for me.  BCP was fun for a minute...till I learned about the hidden fees!

Is that BitcoinPlus?
What fees are they taking?

Yes. Apparently there is a 0.01 transaction fee.  Plus, you can only payout in units of 0.01, meaning everything starting at the 3rd place after the "." remains a part of BCP.  Not worth it, if you ask me!

better using freebitcoins

http://www.freebitcoins.org/6509

I was running my CPUs on that while I was trying to figure out how to get my GPUs mining.  Would take forever to accumulate one bitcoin.
I have 0.025xxxxx there.  I think I'll CPU-mine enough to get it to 0.03BTC and then cash out.

Hello everybody Smiley

I'm from Finland and I got interested in Bitcoin for various reasons. I'm affiliated with the Zeitgeist Movement so I'm clearly interested in anything different from the establishment.

I'm also a semi-professional poker player looking to find other ways besides poker to stay away from the rat race so whatever extra income I get from this is appreciated.

Started with investing some money in hardware, currently my mining capacity is a little bit over 2 ghash. I have also bought some coins directly as an investment.

In the future I hope to be able to actually spend them as well, when goods and services that I need become available for coins. I'm also planning to startup some services of my own in the near future. The Finnish people seem to be fairly interested in Bitcoin so it's a good market out here for anything Bitcoin-related.

Hello everybody!  Smiley

Are new members allowed to send PMs? I get the following error: "You are not allowed to send personal messages. "

Here's my answer:

Due to a mass of trolling, only established posters are able to post in non-newbie sections. You are considered "established" if you have spent 4 hours online and have made 5 posts.

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

Also:
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.
- You need 50 posts to put an image in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted.

Hullo everyone! Only just got into mining a few weeks ago. To tell you all the truth, I got into it so I could pay back my fine for stupidly and moronically running a red light where there was a camera in place  Embarrassed. Lesson learned... lesson learned!

Hi. I'm rnicoll. I'm new to Bitcoins (still downloading transaction history new). I'm primarily interested in the technology of how Bitcoin works, although having attempted (and not exactly succeeded) at writing automated traders for Forex before, I'm inclined to see if I can do any better with Bitcoin.

Dogecoin Core developer, ex-researcher, trader.

Unless stated otherwise, opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect that of other Dogecoin developers.

I'm Rick. Currently running 5x 6950, which are unfortunately lazer cut Sad and one 5830.

I had originally ordered 7x 6950's and the 5830 to spread across 4 rigs, unfortunately one of my psu's blew and fried both the motherboard and the two 6950's, so I ended up RMA'ing the entire rig.

Currently pulling 2.15ghash/s and am looking to invest in some pci-e 1x extenders and some new cards/extra psu's.

You need to use an exchange service or find someone to sell them to you directly.

How many BTC do you want?

Wear sunglasses....another lesson learned. Red light cameras are the easiest ticket to fight. Try Mr. Ticket if you're in a city they service.

Ok first,what's an ATI card? Never heard of one lol
Second,exchange service,you mean like MT Gox or Tradehill etc? Iv'e already registered with a couple but like i said they all only seem to accept wire transfers,cash in post,cheques etc etc.I was hoping to just make a straightforward transfer to someone in the UK (where i am) cos as far as i know i can do that online through my bank now,failing that paypal. Otherwise it's wait till Monday when the bank's open to make a wire transfer (although Britcoin.com you can just make a cash deposit at the bank)
 Their presently at around $14 yeah? So i was only wanting to spend $100 to $200 max for my first foray.
Cheers

 Hi David from Canada here trying out this Bitcoin thing.

 I bought one Bitcoin today on an exchange at 14.20US$ and sent it to my miner app, the default application I downloaded from Bitcoin.org is that app called the miner? Lots to learn I guess.

 Anyway I'm reading through the forum trying to find out the basics of sending and receiving since I'm having trouble doing a test send from my desktop miner app to my Android phone wallet app.

 And after all that my top priority is to learn how to backup my Bitcoins/wallet data (to actually get an eWallet for Linux) and most of all encrypt all that.

 As I said lots to learn.
