Phew, just read all 325 pages of this topic. 

P.S.  This definitively proves I'm not a bot, as we all know bots can't read.

Hello,

only found out on the newbie restriction today wanting to post on the forum... Damn, beeing a forum member for a year really looks ignorant. To much passive reading without even loggin in. Guess this is gonna change ;-)

Have a nice day...

Been following Bitcoins and keeping my eye on the community for a while and I've decided now is finally the time to get involved!  I'm excited to see where this will go and to start contributing ideas and information. 

On a side note: Have any of you watched The Good Wife yet?  New American TV series about Bitcoin.

WOW...where to begin? BitCoins are awesome and I wish I discovered them sooner! Tongue I am a college student currently living in a dorm (free electricity...woots!) so btc mining is just amazing as I repair/collect PC parts all the time. I have my main desktop and laptop chugging out what they can and another desktop and laptop doing some scrypt CPU mining as they haz no mineable GPUs. I have had a ton of fun and learned quite a bit about quite a lot honestly...HAH. I've even managed to overclock my GPU for gaming purposes as well...knowledge I have passed on to a few friends...a few of which I have also turned on to mining Wink

I have slowly moved from solo mining (everybody else tried it at first too...just admit it Tongue) to Eligius to Deepbit to Bitparking where I was introduced to Namecoins after which I moved to Triplemining ( http://gektek.triplemining.com ...shameless plug sry) which has done me RATHER well. I am currently dabbling with P2Pool mining as I am hoping to soon be able to make a small investment in an ASIC (recommendations? I know of Butterfly Labs, BTCFPGA, ZTEX, and FPGA Mining...of which Butterfly seems to be the best bet as while BTCFPGA has a nice inexpensive starter option I might as well buy a 5770 on eBay for $200 less and ZTEX has no option with heatsink or fan (is it really that hard folks?) and I LOVE FPGA Mining (I buy PCI extenders from their http://cablesaurus.com/ site) but if I'm already spending $600(ish) I might as well buy from Butterfly and get twice the hash rate). So ANYWAY...hi...I'm fun...I'm new...even if I don't make a fortune I'm having a BLAST learning so please PM me or reply or whatever...I wanna learn yo! Cheesy

New to bitcoins.  Interested in silver and other alternative currencies.

I would like to work on development of a polymorphic altcoin that maintains a stable value and is more resistant to fraud.

from BTCFPGA site looks like their product is $1,000 for 800mhash whereas the product from BFL is only $600 for 800mhash (maybe longer wait time though)

how much mhash you got going?

products im talking about:

ButterflyLabs:

Ya...the inexpensive BTCFPGA option I was talking is paying $200 for the 'board' and then just buy 1 'plugin' card for $250 which would give you 210 Mh/s for $450 but I can get an ATI 5770 on eBay which does about 200 Mh/s for only $200 to $250. But ya...my basic point is...for anything over $500 is there a better option that a 'Single' from Butterfly labs and for anything under $500 is there a better option than a 5770 for $250? Yes I know the 5870 has a higher hash rate but the price for those is getting awful close to that $500 buffer at which point why not put the extra bucks down for a BFL Single ya know with its 800 Mh/s ya know?

something very wrong with your calcuations

you can get used 5870's for $200 on eBay
5970 for $340 (700mhash)
5830 for $90-$100 (I think 280 mhash)
