Hi. I'm Jon.

I've been mining for about 9 months (tho sold my rigs last week). While I stopped mining, I am still a believer of bitcoins and regularly trade. It is a shame that I seem to be excluded from many of the discussions that take place on here.

It seems as though the newbie forum doesn't have a lot of discussion. Do I have to wait 'x' weeks before I can participate? Or do I have to make many junk posts in this subforum to be allowed to discuss BTC with people in other subforums?

*confused*

I'll check back tomorrow I suppose. I'm sure there are easier ways to moderate a site than to automatically limit newbies to a single subforum.

don't be so negative, the 5-post-4-hour-rule is there for a reason: to get rid of the trolls. NOT to piss newcomers off.

I don't think waiting four hours is too much, one can spend much longer by reading a few threads.  Writting five posts, on the other hand, is much worse, if you try not to send "me too's" or "thank you's" posts. :-)

Hello all!

I've been lurking a bit myself and decided to create an account and actually TALK to some people for a change.

Just a topic I've been thinking about recently ... anyone interested in working together to create a F2F darknet? There are a few posts around on the board that mention it.

Just made my first purchase of BTC today via a trade out of Linden Dollars over on the VirWoX exchange. Whoo-hoo!

Looking forward to working more in bitcoins and participating in a modern P2P currency.

I wonder what I should do for 4 hours... my miners are all happily hashing away, and I am stuck in this section wanting to post in another section after lurking on this forum for 6 weeks...

Hello everybody,

After I have been reading this forum for about 2 months, I have finally decided to join. I randomly learned about Bitcoin by reading some forum somewhere, and since then I have set up a small mining rig. I personally believe Bitcoin is a good idea, and even if it won't be the worlds no. 1 currency in the foreseeable future (or maybe it could, who knows!), at least it might be good enough to make some of the world's other currencies have a little more... accountability.

Thanks for listening!

Heya -- Just wanted to tip you off that you can easily purchase small amount of bitcoin over on the OTC exchange. It is kinda involved though -- you have to generate a PGP key, login to an IRC chat channel etc. It may be worth checking out: www.bitcoin-otc.com

I wouldn't consider Bitcoin an investment and I don't consider gold an investment either. Gold is money; not a money substitute but can and is used as money. Bitcoin is similar to gold in that there are only so much produced each day (mining gold vs mining bitcoin). It is divisible and will not spoil etc etc.

Good luck and welcome to Bitcoin!

Got interested on Bitcoins to buy a game  (Portal and Portal 2) ...
... and have both an FPGA board and an ATI Radeon GPU  ...
Could put my greedy hands on a small Nvidia Tesla cluster (16 GPU) but just for small experiments

Just looking at the numbers, even the nVidia tesla just isn't worth mining. The AMD / ATI chips are just so much better for mining. Much quicker ROI with ATI GPUs

please do so! and get a post Smiley

Don't mind if I do.

Imagine if the guy from Aronofsky's π was a vegan who watched too much TV and his computer was a Mac. That's me.  Only I'm haughtier.  And I have a better sense of humor.  I'm just kind of awesome in general, I guess.  And yet somehow, despite all of that, more down to Earth.  You'll learn to love me or hate me over time, it breaks about 50/50 at first but I end up like an 80/20 positive on most boards.

Signatures are only used for 2 things - Advertising, like this one, and teenagers on social networking sites that feel a need to waste your time, which is fundamentally what all advertising does.  Abolish signatures on message boards.

That seems decent Sabi, most people don't hit those numbers with that card. Look here.

Thank you so much Turbo for your advice.  The only setting I was comfortable with with is below.  I need to use this PC while mining, and it's the only setting that was always stable.  Not the top of performance from the link you sent, but It's right up there and I can still use my pc.
