Hey!

I'm from Sweden and I'm still in Prague at the Panaroma Hotel after a great weekend and conference!

Very happy I went here for the conference!
Been a blast.

Hey, Im from Australia (sydney)

I'm here to learn, I want to understand how the BC network operates.
And see if I can replicate the network to transact in multiple mediums.

I.e. extend the bitcoin network to USD, Swiss Francs, Gld shares, Microsoft Stocks etc.

You all will start to love bitcoin.  The forums themselves are rather addicting.  Mining is so-so.

Plenty of ways to do that!

I'm here, but I won't be troubling myself to gain posting privileges here, too much of a PITA for an at most mildly interesting internet sideshow like bitcoin. In any case 99% of the value proposition of this forum for me is met by reader access only. Thank you for providing this. Have a good week.
Fair enough.  Mods-- whitelist this guy?

  Fair enough. I spent the first few months here 'just reading'.  Sooner or later though, you will come over to the 'dark side'.  Wink

Hi everyone,

I just heard about bitcoin this week on the Max Keiser show.  I downloaded the client last night and started running it.  It says that it is synchronizing with network, and is very slowly downloading (in comparison to other internet activity) over 155,000 blocks of transaction history, while my hard drive is running almost continuously.  Can someone tell me, is this client a continuous resource hog, or will it chill out once it catches up with the download?

Thanks,
Tim - from New Mexico

  Once it catches up, it will only have such activity when a new block is found, which isn't much for a single block, or if you don't run it for a while.

Good evening all.  I found out about bitcoin a few weeks ago, still new to the whole thing and still trying to figure out how it works.  Hopefully this forum can help me on my bitcoin journey.

Thanks for the responses.  I have less than 12,000 blocks to go.  I'm really looking forward to using bitcoin for as much economic activity possible.

I've been reading, mining, trading, etc for much longer than that already. What I've observed has made me more skeptical of the long term viability of bitcoin.

I knew a couple of penny stock scammers back in the 90s, they would select stocks with small market cap such that they could easily buy up the market and manipulate the share price. Right now bitcoin is still at a scale where this is easily possible, so it's a bit difficult to take it more seriously, than say, fantasy football or betting on celebrity death pools :-)
