JingleBalls the name. Often lurking, been looking at Bitcoins and mining since the days before just before the mybitcoin and mtgox incidents. Thought I would join in and maybe get access to contribute in other sections at some point.

Hi all!

New miner from Sydney, Australia. I have a dedicated Linux miner and my Windows desktop mines when I'm not gaming, which is most of the time these days :\

I do tech support for an engineering company and do a little experimenting in my spare time. I do a lot of stuff with wireless networks, including a small community network.

My work wants to experiment with mining on their CAD stations. We are self powered by solar panels, but the rate the grid pays is very low, about a 10th of what you pay to consume, so we're looking into running miners as the screen savers. That's why I'm here: to see if there is a more up to date screen saver out there than the old puddinpop RPC screen savers which are now a year out of date. I experimented with cgminer and commandsaver, but cgminer doesn't like console redirection.

Anyway, this is an introduction not a tech support post so I'll leave it at that.

Hey I'm new here, just came to check things out. I've been doing a bit of work with bitcoins over the past few months and things are really good. It seems like the "gold standard" except online. Anyway, great to be here!

Yeah, isn't amazing that BitCoin is actually 'backed' by something (the work to produce each block) but the US$ is "Trust us that it has a value". lol, who trust their government any more? What a quaint idea!

Welcome to the Bitcoin community, HeyRon.

As much as I prefer Bitcoin to USD, please note that your post is not entirely correct. The US$ is backed by the need to pay taxes, which is backed by governmental force. This is the definition of fiat.

Bitcoin, unfortunately, is not currently backed by anything; the work to produce each block does not back it. Digging holes may be a lot of work, but holes are not backed by that work.

Remember that this can change. All national currencies, including USD, have a finite and usually short lifespan, and at the end of it they lose their backing. And, it will only be time preventing someone from backing all the bitcoins, because of their limited amount, simply by agreeing to sell products for a total price above 21000000 BTC.

In fact, we are forced by governments to use their paper money by legal tender laws. Unless someone wants to go to a jail rather quickly... So the only thing we can have trust in is that: "Trust us and we won't hit you too hard (probably)"... Grin

Thought I am a Monad I cling to pure functions. Let me be less imperative...

Hi there, I'm not a miner, buying bitcoins only for speculative purpose. Speculation and bitcoin price fluctuation can also attract attention of potencial audience. Speculation makes bitcoin alive and vital. Speculating and waiting for wider market adoption. I trully belive in bitcoin idea.
