Hi everyone! I've been lurking for awhile now, and I figured it was time to make an account and participate. I am very excited about bitcoins - I believe they have the power to render central authority obsolete.

I am a computer programmer by trade. I'm working on a few interesting bitcoin related projects which will hopefully help bitcoin gain more widespread adoption.

Hi all! I'm very excited to get involved in the bitcoin community. Im an IT Support technician at a local university and have been mining with my Nvidia 9800GT. Needless to say, the 30Mh/s isn't cutting it. I have already scoped out a few cards here and there. Very impressed how large this community is considering i've never heard of bitcoins before last month.

Hello there, I'm fairly new to bitcoins. I got introduced by a friend of mine and I'm hooked. The idea is great and though I had some trouble understanding every bit(hehe) of bitcoins since I'm not the technical type I understand the most important facts now.
I'm interested in the economy and legal forums and trying to think of ways to get this currency beyond the speculating type it is now.

I am the newest bee in the hive.  I barely know what a bitcoin is.  There is a great article in WIRED magazine about bitcoins.  This led me to do google searches, etc.. download a wallet, bit miner pool website.
I like the hardware side of bitcoin and mining.  My lowly celeron 440 just cant mine bitcoins fast enough.  Any help getting started?

Welcome. If you want to get into mining, you first need to realize that mining with a CPU will cost you more in electricity than the bitcents it will generate. Your best bet is to get an AMD/ATI GPU. Something like a Radeon 58xx or 6950. A cheap 6870 is also not a bad choice. I am not bashing nVidia; it is just that nVidia architecture is poorly suited for bitcoin mining.

This <https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison> will give you an idea of the hash rates you can expect with various GPUs and CPUs. For example, an overclocked 6870 can provide 300MHash/s; compare to your Celeron 440 that does 2MHash/s. Yes, 150x slower.

You can then go here <http://www.alloscomp.com/bitcoin/calculator.php> to give you an idea of how many bitcoins a given hashrate will provide you over time.

Hey all! I've been involved with bitcoins for a while now--I remember buying in way back when BTC was around $1 (and more importantly, selling when it hit ~$30  Grin) I've still got some and am interested to see where this little experiment goes. At the moment, however, I just need to PM someone on here -_-

You've taken the first step; stick with it, ask questions!

Hello everyone, my name is Gustavo, I'm from Brazil and have lurked bitcoins for a year without much interest. Now I'm going back to college to study economics and decided to just check how things are, and oh my god, bitcoins are in a great moment, rising up! I want to get in and do some trading just for kicks.

Hi All,

Hope I have checked right, and this is the place for official introduction.

I'm Alatus, and come from Hungary. Though quite new to Bitcoin, i' ve been running a small mining operation since June, thus lived through the "cold days of the summer" (BTC from 11 to 2, and back again), but I am still absolutely enthusiastic.
Bitcoin is a transformative new technology, which is ( will be...) much needed especially here, where we are (dispite all denial) dancing at the verge of national bankruptcy since at least 2008.

I hope to do some activism in Bitcoin in Hungary, as well as to use it if it's possible not just as a reserve currency.
We'll see.
Glad to join, anyhow! :-)

Although mining with FPGAs is much more efficient than mining with GPUs, there is also a larger startup cost. Currently, we are on target for a block subsidy halving from 50BTC to 25BTC on December 13, 2012 (actual date may be between 2012-12-06 to 2012-12-20). If you can earn back the startup cost through the FPGA mining, then this is a great oppertunity! Otherwise, proceed on this path only if you believe bitcoin will explode in the coming year.
