Ah, I edited that bit about the 50 posts out after I read more on it elsewhere, didn't want to be a griper. *sheepish grin*

Hi,

my name is Hundsstern.

I love Bitcoins.

I`ve discovered Bitcoins two weeks ago through the news. Too bad it wasn't earlier. But at least I catched the BC-Train before it got too far away.

I've started mining with my Intel E8500 and a GTX260 but soon I realized that this is nonsense.
So i bought myself a Radeon EAH5870 at Amazon shipped via UPS.

At first I got 300 mhash/s with guiminer at eligius. I was not content with eligius and so i switched to deepbit.
I've improved my hashrate from 300 mh/s to 360 mh/s when i've started using poclbm . And i got another 40 mh/s when i've added "-v -w 128".

Because of the constantly recurring problems on deepbit i've tried bitcoin.lc but they still don't update their statistics. But they are able to update their thread-title in the forum when they reach a bigger Pool-Hashrate.

I'm back at deepbit now and i'm content for the moment.

I'm concerned about the next difficulty increase and if i have enough money to buy new equipment for mining at an acceptable level.

I've planned to post in the german forum mainly and i hate all the trolls for being the reason why i'm posting here.

Salutations,
I am an Australian resident who lives on-site at a dedicated facility at a local private hospital where I am treated for an especially malicious and ultimately fatal form of bowel cancer. In the mean-time, I enjoy pursuing manageable but rewarding goals such as my current Bitcoin endeavor of reaching 60US dollars using nothing but BTC.
So far, mining with a single 5770 intermittently over the last 48 hours has netted me the peasant sum of 0.06 BTC, but when I turn this into 1.0BTC I plan to pursue investments (of some sort, I'm still very much clueless) that will allow me to make progress on my path to 60 US dollars.
If any other newbies have success stories with their first BTC endeavors, please feel free the share.

Hi Everyone,

Got back into building PC's a couple of years ago and also discovered Bitcoin mining. Been trying my hand at it off and on ever since.
Starting to get a little obsessed with it recently, but having a lot of fun trying all different kinds of configurations and calculations.

I hope to be able to contribute to the development community and continue having fun.

Hello, my name is EpicFail. I have been mining Bitcoins for 2 months at approximately 1 Ghash/s. I had another forum login but I stopped using that one because in my prior posts I might have given up too much information about where I might be working. For various reasons, I think that it is not prudent for my employer to know that I am involved in Bitcoins. So here I am re-incarnated as a noob - going to be a little bit more careful about what I might say.

Hey all.  A couple of quick namecoin questions:

If I want to set up, say, a dozen dot-bit domain names, and no more than that (and want to be my own registrar), what is an approximate reasonable or necessary number of namecoins to acquire to do this?

At the moment I have about one-and-a-half bitcoins in Mt. Gox.  I want to buy namecoins to set up a few .bit domain names. I'm looking for some namecoin sellers, to compare their prices.  I found #bitcoin-otc pretty opaque & not ready for primetime.  

Also,

"* Names expire after 12000 blocks unless renewed with an update"

What does "12000 blocks" translate to in terms years, months, weeks, days, hours

I had an idea for this concept a couple of months ago when I was thinking about running my own Bitcoin ATM drive through bank.

Run a computer with some kind of secure linux distro. Tiny core would be a good base to work from since its one of the most lightweight distros.(Only 10 MB or so!)

Run the standard stable bitcoin server with every port blocked except the ports need by the bitcoin server.

Tiny core runs completely in memory so if some one were to try and compromise the machine and it lost power then everything would be permanently erased. No trace. In order for your wallet to be recoverable, enable a script that periodically encrypts your wallet and sends it a remote databank, like google docs, drop box, ect.

Install SSH but use key based authentication with a password needed to unlock your private key. This would allow you access to your machine from any terminal on your local network.

Connect the headless server to your Ethernet, never use a wifi network!

Also connect the pc to a back up power supply and surge protector.

Hope this helps!

PS: I'm thinking about making a linux distro based off of this called SecuCoin.
