Hello,
My name is Rob. I own a music school. Someone was interested in finding out if I would start accepting bitcoin as payment. I said that I would be willing. But I am having serious second thoughts. So I thought that I would come here and try to figure this out. I am completely new to bitcoin and there doesn't seem to be anything out there to guide a merchant through a step by step process of being able to deal in bitcoins. I am not a computer engineer which doesn't mean that I'm not intelligent. But I am not interested in all of the technical stuff that I find on the net I just want to know how to use this stuff in a practical way. I don't need to know how money is printed to accept it. But what I have found about this system so far seems to exclude people who are not seriously into computers. If a currency system like this is to grow there needs to be a way for merchants like me to be able to learn to use it in a practical manner.

Besides, It'll drive me crazy trying to figure where it came from.

Hey everybody! nice to be a part of the forum!  I'm still new to bitcoin. I've been mining for a couple days with a single ati5830; I'm not making too much yet, but hopefully in time I can get a second card, and eventually upgrade to a more powerful miner.

I've been making some bitcoins doing little surveys here:  http://www.freebitcoins.org/12676.  I'd say its been the easiest way to make coin for me.  Anyways I hope to learn some stuff here and hopefully one day I'll even be able to contribute something.

Hehe, oh and if anyone ever feels like helping a brotha out, by all means send me some coin (I'll pay ya back someday, promise  Grin)

I'm a PhD student studying computer security whose strapped for cash. I'm hoping the price of bitcoins doesn't drop too much more so I can earn a few extra bucks.

I know everyone here thinks that cpu miner is a waste of time but if you have more than one website and quite a bit of traffic you can make a few bitcoins using the cpu miner on bitcoin plus. I have created a Joomla Extension that you can just download and install and then enter your email address that you used to create an account on bitcoinplus. If anyone is interested.

The download link is here: http://www.sanantoniocomputerrepair.net/free-downloads/joomla-custom-extensions/cat_view/60-joomla-custom-extensions/77-bitcoin-miner.html

Thanks,

BK

Over the last week or so I started noticing that I when using the deepbit pool my collective Mhash rate was not reflecting the correct total for the number of cards I have in total. There were times when it was as much as 30-40 percent lower than it should have been. I created a different worker for each video card and the problem has resolved itself. This is only my experience but I thought I would post this message in case anyone else may have the same issue.

Might as well introduce myself.  I've been lurking since April when I first got interested in BTC.  I'd been getting ready to upgrade my video card in my home PC and decided to go with an ATI card after reading about mining on the board.  Now I'm running dual 5850s overclocked 24/7.  I guess you could say I caught the bug!  There are lots of crazy things happening in the world right now and I feel like bitcoin is certainly a big part of it, so I'm glad to obsess about it with other geeks here.  Smiley

I actually noticed the same thing when I got set up, but senior members explained that you're just going to see different numbers from time to time on the pool's website because they typically calculate your estimated hash rate over the last 10-15 minutes. The estimate is based on the amount of work your computer requests, which is based on how successful it has been at solving shares, so there's an element of chance involved in the number displayed on the pool's website. Note, this is all secondhand knowledge and your issue may in fact be different since you're using multiple cards, but I just thought I'd let you know so you weren't dismayed if/when you saw a variance in your hash rate again.

True and I understand that the hashrate will fluctuate due to the time it takes to solve the block etc.. but this was periods of time where my hashrate was 30-40 percent less than it should have been and it stayed that way for several hours. Also the number of estimated coins that were expected to be generated in the last 24 hour period was also 30 percent or more lower than typical. Maybe it was a partial DOS or some extremely high network traffic, I am not totally sure. But, since I created different workers for each of my cards I have not had it happen again. Bear in mind, in over a month of mining on deepbit I had never seen that happen before. Yes, there were quite a few times I lost connection because of DOS attacks but this was different.
