Hello there!  I'm fascinated with economics and speculation.  Feel free to speak up if I'm wrong - I'm an amateur and I'm willing to learn.  Let's see how far this undergraduate understanding of economics can get me.

Welcome,

Wait, do I throw out the econ textbooks or the grammar textbooks?  Tongue

I'm actually an accounting major so I guess I'm 1/3 of the way there.

I think it really depends on the books.
Macroeconomics courses (for what I've learned of it by listening to iTunes U lectures from Berkeley) seem pretty accurate as I see them... Although you have to wade through all the garbage about how centralized fiat currencies are somehow sustainable.

Criminal Justice is probably one of the better topics to study though... You can't ever know enough about your rights!

I'm actually an accounting major so I guess I'm 1/3 of the way there.
I was going to mention the "there" mistake as well but I decided to leave it. Wink

Hi, I've been using bitcoins for about a year (mining with an NVidia GTX 560 Ti, now replaced by an unlocked 6950 at 880MHz) and haven't created an account here 'till now.
There should be a way of using an existing GPG key as a bitcoin account for transactions you don't care about anonymity for... It'd bridge two of my favorite things!

#bitcoin-otc kind of already does this. 

That is an IRC chat on freenode.  If you have trouble finding it then you can google it.


I've looked into OTC and it's cool, but it'd be a nice feature to see in software.

Actually, it's rather more the reverse: the core price theory content of microeconomics courses is widely-accepted and time-tested, while there's substantial disagreement about macroeconomics within the profession.

More to the point, you should approach everything you read about economics on this board with a good dose of healthy skepticism. It has at least as many, and probably more, kooks as anywhere else on the 'net...

Hi, I'm Leo Treasure from Perth, Australia. I am interested in promoting Bitcoin professionally. I have a website www.bitcoinsaustralia.com where I will practice my web skills to design up a really nice Bitcoin web site (not the beach backdrop one that's there currently).

Also I am into electronic and sample based music. Anyone from Perth who wants to meet up and chat about bitcoin or do some collaborative work on music please drop me a line! 0435 290 450 Smiley

hey All Smiley

I am Justin from Australia (seems to be a few Aus folk here). Just became somewhat familiar with Bitcoins and loving the concept.
I just wish I had the equipment to do some mining.

I just wish I had the equipment to do some mining.

I've got the equipment (a bunch of gaming machines each with one or two high-end RadeonHD cards), I just wish we had cheap enough electricity to make mining even close to profitable. Cry With electricity prices being what they are, the very idea of running all these machines 24/7 at 100% load makes me cringe. A more specialised setup (eg FPGA) would be cheaper, but still nowhere near cheap enough.

you in Aus aswell ?

I have been trying to figure out how much it would cost...  I just pay the bill when it arrives... i never realy look at the kw costs etc..
how much power would it use and cost to have your pc idling and mining 24/7 ?

thanks

But your PC isn't idling during mining, and that's the problem. Your system needs to exert some serious computing power, and you need some serious cooling to go with it. All up, my PCs draw 3-4 kW for around $16-$22 per day. I haven't actually tried mining with my system, but by my guesstimate it should do about 2Ghash/s, and mine about 1BTC per day. Not even worth trying.

Hi. I'm Snowflower. This is a flower that blooms early in the spring in the mountains and comes up through the snow.

I know nothing about bitcoin and have joined this forum in hopes that it will start making sense to me eventually. Right now my computer is downloading something or other - says it is 78% finished now and it's been a bit more than an hour. The site that started explaining it to me said it might take several hours.  I'm not even sure what it is I'm downloading, but just decided to make a beginning and see if I can make sense of it after awhile.

Yeah I was just curious how much it costs you when it is idling vs how much when its 100% chugging along.

Yes, that does make a bit of a difference. I don't know exactly how much of a difference, but... yeah. Oh, I should also point out that I don't usually run all of my PCs all the time (as is typical for a mining operation), for exactly this reason. A single PC has lower power requirements, but correspondingly lower returns. You can't really do much with just one PC. Generally you want several PCs each with multiple GPUs, or else some kind of specialised hardware. Not to mention some means of powering the whole operation that costs less than the bitcoins you're mining (this is where the whole plan falls apart, at least in Australia).

Hey everyone my name is Eric. I've been using bitcoins for about 5-6 months now and I came across this site and decided to give it a try. I usually do graphic work and website building for bitcoins but I guess you can really sell anything for btc.
