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.

Hi.

I've been reading the forum for a while now, and figured it was time to set signed up.

I have very modest hardware to work with, so I'm not getting Bitcoin rich by mining (and I do not expect that I will). Mining is fun (and fun to watch). It's also an excuse to tweak and upgrade my machines to see what I can get out of them. Grin

I'm as interested in the social and economic (as well as clandestine) uses of Bitcoins. Not sure where it's all headed, but it's interesting to be along for the ride.

I've been reading the forum for about two months now.  It's been a HUGE resource, solving 99% of my mining related problems.  I'm so very thankful that it's available.

I mine with 2 rigs.  Each one has 3 5970s in it, and at this point I'm working out my highest stable overclocks on stock volts.  One of my cards was quite lucky, and I'm able to run 880 MHz on each core on stock volts.

Interesting concept these bitcoins. I just now learned about them and count me in. There is obviously quite a bit to learn about how to use them and the whole socioeconomic impact they could have (with any luck at all). Anyway, very exciting and I'm off to read and learn as much as I can as fast as I can. Oh and thank all of you and whoever created this forum. There are a lot of really smart people on here answering a lot of really smart and not-so-smart questions from us newbies.

As soon as I figure out how to I want to accept bitcoins on my website. I wonder if I can accept bitcoins on ebay? I'll look into it. How cool would that be?

Using bitcoins and mining them are different things. It is not that complicated really, if you think of bitcoins as the actual gold coins from the logo.

In oder to keep coins, you first need a wallet. You can even have more than one (Bitcoin PC app, Android client).
Now you need some coins to put into your brand new wallet. The easiest way to get some is to go to a marketplace (MtGox &co) and trade them for other stuff (US$ in this case).
Once you got some coins in your wallet, you can spend them on stuff you like, or donate them to helpful people *nudge nudge*

If you don't have stuff to trade for coins, you can also get some by doing hard mining work. But unlike in the "16 ton" song, it is actually fun!

In order to start mining, you first need to get a mining tool that suits you (one of the many miner apps).
The you can saddle your mule (no analogy, sorry) and go rinding out as a lone prospector, trying to dig up some gold (a valid block, worth 50 BTC).
However, since the gold has become scarce over time and there are lots of miners out there, your chances of finding the mother lode on your own are slim.

Instead, you can join a bunch of other friendly miners (a pool) and help them at their mine (deepbit.net &co).
Once you or your mining buddies actually manage to find some gold (the valid block), everybody gets a fair share.
This way you get less gold at once, but you get it at a steady rate. Much better for the impatient.
