ahoj,  got infected from a friend with the bitcoin virus. Living in Austria :-)
Somehow really interesting idea to start a currency that is independent from banks and nations. Didnt totally get the whole system but will dig deeper now.

When my friend told me about bitcoin the course was around 3$ now it rocketed in 2 month up to over 5$. Now Iam sad that I didnt buy some when he told me first ;-)

hey guys ive been trading bitcoin/usd since october, and have taken a huge interest in the project both for how much about economics it has taught me as well as how promising it is. i can only see its uses and userbase expanding from here. may 2012 be the year of the bitcoin!

Hello,

I've been involved with Bitcoin for more than half a year; mining, selling, observing and buying. I have already spent considerable time here on the boards; reading, laughing and plotting.

I guess it's high time to mingle. I genuinely believe that bitcoin has merit with its uses, but like anything, it needs time to grow and mature.

So cheers!

Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself.

I am having fun playing around with the technical side of bitcoin. Working on FPGA mining, and it is coming along ok. I am interested in finding out more about other bitcoin cousins such as namecoin and litecoin.

mostly just having fun

OK, I live in California, have been Bitcoin mining since late June / early July, was (at one point) sucking about 40 Amps (20 from one circuit and 20 from another) to power a total of 8 mining rigs, subsequently got kicked out of the single room office I had been renting (not just for Bitcoin mining), now I'm mining in another rented office on only 3 rigs. It's still hot in there :-)

I kind of doubt that anybody reads this...

Forgot to say, right now I'm interested in FPGA mining (due to the lower power draw) and have ordered a ZTEX board, but it hasn't arrived yet and I think it is too expensive. I'm not criticizing ZTEX - as a business, they need to price their products so that they make a profit on them, but their margin makes their product too expensive for commercial Bitcoin mining.

That June/July period would have been very profitable for your 7.5GHash/s system  ...  Wink

Initially I had only a 2 GHash setup, give or take, and was still in the process of building rigs when the Bitcoin exchange rate plummeted to $3.

I think I spent between 4 and 5 grand on hardware, but recouped only about 1 grand by selling Bitcoins. In the end I had a 5 GHash setup consisting of 8 computers, most (but not all) of them with 4 graphics cards in them, most (but not all) 5830 cards. Some cards were 6790 cards (a waste of money). I did not overclock, but still encountered cooling problems. This party ended when they gave me a 3 day notice to vacate due to "breach of contract", using the office for other purposes than is written in the [boilerplate] lease contract. I complied with the 3 day notice, since my lease had just expired and the contract did say "no right to holdover". So, legally, I was on very thin ice there.

And I continued to suffer from MASSIVE outages, either due to DDoS on the mining pools I was mining at, or due to the Comcast cable connection throttling, or whatever. I was constantly switching mining pools, it was not even funny. Some mornings I would come to the office and all the rigs were idle and the room was almost cold...
