Hi I'm dyingdreams. Got into bitcoin mining about a month ago with the 5750 I used for gaming and the 5670 in my secondary box, and was only getting around 280-300 Mhps between the two. About a week ago I decided to step it up a bit and bought 2 5830s, and now I'm getting around 865Mhps, so I guess being around the BS Single level isn't bad. I've also pre-ordered a BF SC Jalepeno on 7/26 order #3976 but since I'm  newb I can't post in the official wait list thread.

sup, bitcoiners
long time lurker, first time poster here.

Like I said, if you're delayed, your project is dead and I believe you know this.  I hope you aren't rushing things just to be first and shipping a brick in a box that fails to perform or breaks in a month.

Hello.

I'm new to the forums but have been contemplating digital currency and micropayments since 2009. After almost a year of independent thinking somewhere around 2009. in which I've thought on my own on how to best design a open source system for managing and accounting digital currency I did a thesis about "virtual money" in which I designed a database schema for generic virtual currency accounting. I was even considering to put it online, not knowing about Bitcoin yet!

During that time, I've come to the central realization that "virtuality" of any currency should best be considered as some "inverse measure" of the proportion of it's acceptance. In other words, the "virtuality" could perhaps best be thought of as an indicator of the level of global unacceptability of a currency. If you understand that, you come to understand that term virtuality in that sense is somewhat superfluous, old fashioned and soon probably to be obsolete.

Some two months after defending that thesis I've come to realize that probably the ultimate way to bootstrap a digital decentralized currency is through what is now known as world wide shared transactional database we now call Bitcoin. This realization came to me months before I actually discovered actual Bitcoin already existing and embodying that very same idea, which was relatively late in the spring of 2011. It's very hard to tell if I actually independently came up with that idea before discovering Bitcoin since my subconscious could have very easily picked the gist of idea from the web. I think I may probably be one of the last people to research the article about virtual currencies in Wikipedia without it mentioning Bitcoin. Since I was focusing on technical aspects and learning about database theory I missed stumbling upon Bitcoin community already existing then in 2010. Pity.

The general idea of cryptocurrency is as old as cyberpunk itself, if not older. I strongly believe that if Satoshi didn't invent it, someone else would, sooner or later. But what "Satoshi" did was solving the hard problems of realizing that simple idea and that suggests he was years ahead of everyone else. Whatever his true motives, whoever or whatever he is, he has great respect from me.

Thank you! As far as contributing, I myself am not immune to "Bitcoin enterprise" virus which seems to be prevalent in the community so I hope I'll make some contributions as well Smiley

New to posting on the forums, but long time lurker.  I've dabbled in mining on and off to get a few bitcoins, and lately I've started to dabble in GBLSE securities investments.  Noticed some conversations I'd like to be a part of, so finally bit the bullet and joined the forum.

Welcome, whats your outlook on all the high risk funds drying up?

I think it's primarily based on the fact that people using bitcoin are, for the most part, fairly security conscious people, and thus, slightly risk averse.  That said, I don't see it as being a problem, because I feel it's only a matter of time before we see a new wave of high-risk, high-return funds showing up again.  After a period of conservative investing and stable returns, some people are bound to seek out something to set them ahead of others and the demand for high risk funds will necessitate a new wave of supply.

Hi, I've been mining Bitcoin for a little while...

My BFL Singles arrived on July 4th, and I've been happy with my earnings in the BitMinter pool.

I found that BitMinter is the easiest way to get my BFL Singles up & running.  Smiley

Hey all! I am a game programmer who first took an interest in Bitcoin because of its algorithms. I couldn't imagine how an anonymous crypto-currency would work, so I spent days studying the algorithms for transactions and the blockchain. I became convinced not only that Bitcoin has a solid foundation but that it is an ingenious and interesting idea. I wouldn't put my life savings into Bitcoins yet, but I'm excited to see where the currency goes!

Lately I have been considering taking a more active interest in the community. I would like to get a sense of how people feel about Bitcoin and what they are using it for. My continued interest will probably lead me to contribute by helping develop open-source Bitcoin-related projects and possibly operating Bitcoin-related services.

See you around!

Hello bitcoin community. My name is Christian as you may have already guessed from my name. ive been aware of bitcoin for just over a year now however ive mostly just been silently observing and watching it grow. Im a canadian living in ontario studying at brock university, getting my business degree(third year now yay me!). i want to be a part of this community and hopefully soon enough ill make a name for myself and gain some reputation. Ive got alot of ideas about bitcoin and i can safely say my faith in bitcoin is large and i have complete confidence that this currency will one day be something that not just we can enjoy and utilize but something that the world too will use on a larger scale.

Custom slingshots for bitcoin!! HANDMADE.

Yes, I used Torque in college for one of my game programming classes. It was a bit clunky; I wouldn't want to make an entire game with it. Especially now that Unity has taken the high ground in 3d games.
