Just keep posting (eg. reply to this) to get your post count at 5 or more, and troll the forum for 4 hours.  You'll be out in no time.  I took the day off yesterday to get outta this newbie-jail ;P

Hi!

Been interested in Bitcoin as a phenomenon for a long time, but never got around to having the hardware to mine
or felt the need to trade. Coded some Bitcoin stuff, though, because that's interesting.

Wow! Big thread!

I am currently a crypto hobbyist, and Bitcoin is a brilliant real-world use of crypto math. I'm also fascinated with Bitcoin for other reasons, mainly due to its political implication.

I hope to get in on the action while Bitcoin is still growing, and also to contribute to the FPGA miner.

Hi, all

Not remotely new to BTC, but I thought I'd like to find a community for discussing it. I have several BTC related web projects that I plan to seek support for at the Bitcoin hackathon on the 24th and 25th (hopefully I'll have some alpha design and functionality by then). If you've any questions, don't be afraid to ask!

Hello, my name is Anastasios. I have been a bitcoin enthusiast since May of 2011, and own 4 mining rigs Smiley
I found bitcoin to be amazing by the first time I heard of it, and read Satoshis PDF. I believe bitcoin has the potential to become something big.

Howdy!

As the name implies, I'm a truck driver and a geek.  Used to be a network administrator, serious Linux freak, yadda yadda.  Getting into Bitcoin mining.  In my typical hacktastic fashion, I'm jamming a couple Radeon cards into an ancient Dell Poweredge 2800 server, which really isn't made for this sort of shenanigan.  I find that amusing.  The poor Poweredge is begging for more Astroglide, but that's another story entirely.

Being something of a hardware hacker, I've been looking at the FPGA miners and the backplane architecture of server hot-swap hard drives, and thinking the two really need to have a meeting.  How about an FPGA miner, that's roughly the size and shape of a regular 3.5" hard drive, include cooling fans and both power and USB connectors brought out the back as card-edge plugs, and a backplane that you can plug maybe 20 of the little buggers into.  Then you have one chassis with one USB connection to the host and one power connector to the wall (or a 12V battery, if you want to run solar or mobile or on a freakin boat or whatever)

Two LX150-3FGG484C FPGAs per card (~350MHash/Sec per pair) stacked 20 deep would give 8GHash/sec with 400 watts max consumption (plus the host).  Seems darned economical, in all ways including space.

I haven't delved too deeply into the bus architecture, but maybe sticking 10 on a card (probably about the size of a double-wide video card) would be more efficient, though more expensive per card.  $175 per chip gives $1750 and 2GH/S per card, at perhaps 80-100 watts including glue logic and fans and pretty blinking blue LED lights.




I'm just fighting my logorrhea right now. Cheesy

Hello all!

I'm not much for introductions, so I'll keep it quick. I'm just another newb among 1000s trying to get a handle on this whole bitcoin thing. I  think I'm getting the hang of it (I've spent the last few weeks riveted to the Wiki), but I definitely have a few technical questions. Hope to get those answered and then be a help to other newbies in the future.
