This should be a lesson to all newbies.  Bitcoin removes the need for a trusted third party, but it does not remove the need to trust your counterparty.  If you don't do your due diliigence, you can exkpect that sooner or later you are  going to run into a con game.  I'm not saying that BFL is a con game, but I have yet to hear of anyone who has received their paid order.  If you get screwed, this is not bitcoin's fault.  It woks like cash, and trusting someone on the Interent because he has a slick website is like buying a genuine gold Swiss watch from some guy you met in an ally.  Just because it was half off, doesn't mean that you didn't get scammed.

Hi, and thanks for the reply, although I disagree that there is any lesson to be learnt from anything I wrote. If I get screwed, of course it is not bitcoins fault, and I am aware that there is a risk involved. If the investment doesn't pay off, I have only invested money I was prepared to lose (now there is a lesson Tongue ), but there are plenty of BFL products (FPGA) out in the wild right now and lots of people who can confirm this. I honestly do think BFL will deliver though. Maybe not with the exact specs they state, and most likely it will be delayed, but it seems that anyone not mining with ASIC hardware in 6 months time, will be left behind. I feel the potential reward is worth the risk, so after much consideration I placed the order.

I was really just wondering if anyone know for sure if BFL only count business days when they calculate the order queue, because if they include the weekend, it is slightly annoying to receive the wire transfer details on Friday afternoon Smiley

I live on a pittance so I'm hedging my bets. I'll wait until BFL starts rolling out the new ASIC's and take a look at the mining environment and make a decision then. My greatest concern is that between the halving of rewards for blocks, and large capital investments in ASIC's by individuals, mining will require large capital investment and be beyond the reach of hobbists like myself. On the other hand, I may get a return on my initial investment of 50% and end up with two decent gaming rigs. I know there are BLF products out there, but a cardinal rule of dealing on the internet has been not trusting dealings by wire order.

Make sure you back up your wallet regularly! With Bitcoin-Qt, it needs to be backed up at least as often as every 100 transactions (both sends and receipts) or new addresses.

I almost forgot my own personal welcome message.  Hello from Thailand.  I represent AwarenessForex which has developed the only free, non-lagging trend indicator for forex that measures price distance in real time.  I also have complete automated trading systems.  Too bad there isn't (yet) a tradable BTC/USD currency pair.  I heard about bitcoins through a privacy advocate and the more I researched, the more intrigued I became.  It's more or less like LibertyReserve, without the central authority.  It's just a matter of being able to buy/sell these things that might be a problem initially.

Why can't you trust any dealings by wire order?

Wire transfer's have a reputation for being the prefered payment option of internet conmen, although logically a good con would take your money any way they could get it. If I see a company that takes paypal, credit cards, and wire order, I think they are probably legit and have no real reservations. If I see a company that takes just wire orders I am really wary. Though, in trying to find an example, I came across this statement "As long as you avoid transfers via cash offices and stick to transfers performed bank-to-bank, wire transfer is a very safe way to move money around." so it's probably bias from my ignorance in regards to wire transfers

And up and coming bitcoin banker (yes i know an oxymoron dont worry I also mine). But what can i say i'm a wall street guy. Really liked the whole secretive and dark side of the bitcoin. Undetectable and untrackable virtual currency  Cool But for real what got me going was that the normal exchange sites seemed to contradict the very essence of the backhanded (in a good way) nature of bitcoins. So I created the first dark pool http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_liquidity of bitcoins . An exchange place that is totally annoymous, fast and uses private transactions with your very own virtualxchange banker (me LOL!!!).
The site is
http://virtualxchange.webs.com/
You can also message me on the forums
PS Whats the point of mining and using an unregulated and undetectable currency if when you go to exchange it, it becomes just another normal currency that can be logged . Keep the whole process under the radar like it was supposed to be.
Hoping to get pass noob status!!!  Grin

Hey everybody. Last summer I was really into bitcoins but then gave it up. Now I'm thinking of getting back into the bitcoin game. Not much money in it anymore but I enjoy the geeky and technical side of bitcoins more than money anyway.
I also have a website http://www.thingsthatintrigue.com/.

Hello everyone!
Just learning this new technology.
