Thanks very much, that's good to know! I have another question. (Do tell me if there's somewhere else I should post, can noobs start a new topic?) The normal bitcoin software tries to force you to pay txn fees for certain payments. I mostly have no problem with these, they are very reasonable at the moment. More out of interest, is there a way to send these certain payments without the txn fee, with the normal software or with other software?? If so, what are the consequences? Thanks.

You pay fees for transactions of very small amounts or with coins which are very new (you got them recently and have few confirmations).  I have paid fees for all transactions smaller than 0.25, but not for 0.25 or higher.  Not sure if it'll be always like that or not, though.  There is much more information about fees in other threads.

I see, thanks. I read up on bitcoin a couple of months ago but only now am I getting time to try it out. I seem to remember reading that there was other software available that you could use to send coins. Could be wrong. Just wondering if that would let you send it without fees and what would happen. Probably wouldn't use it even if possible, unless I literally couldn't afford the fee. Anyway, like you suggested, I'll look around some other threads. Thanks for your help Smiley

There might be other alternative clients to the official one, but I doubt they'll allow you to send transactions without a fee if the protocol says there is a fee.  You are about to be free from the Newbie's zone, so you'll be able to post in other forums and not just look.   Smiley

I have bought some equipment to make a small mining rig and currently am running at about 1 G/Hash.

I have a unique idea that would be very profitable for a small number of people that could be involved, however it would require some trust which seems to be in short supply here.

I am going to make a post in the newbies section and hopefully if there is enough interest then it could be moved over to mining.

I think it only counts active time.  So, if you leave the site open but do nothing, it doesn't count.  ;y total time logged in counts 1 day and 2 hours, and I've had it open for weeks already.

Hi, I've been mining for a day on my rig which has dual XFX 6950s. Using this calculator

http://tpbitcalc.appspot.com/recalculate

I see that I can generate just a few coins a week with my (so far) unlocked and un-oc'd cards. At least electricity is cheap where I live at 6.5 US cents per kwh.

So far this has been a fun project.

It's not.  I've just paid a fee for a Bitcoin 0.25 transaction.

Hello,

long time lurker here too. I mined and traded bitcoins since the 7USD price jump (although I had read about them since the year before...stupid me) and now I'm going to try to break out of the newbie box so I can reply in the other sections and post in the marketplace as well Smiley

Hi.
My name is Rui, I'm from portugal and I discovered Bitcoins in may...
I respect those who are disapointed, but I still believe in Bitcoins and hope it sticks as payement method, not to avoid taxes but to avoid banks and they're speculative power.
My best regards to everyone in this community!
