Hello all

I'm relatively new to Bitcoins and mining. I read up on them a while back and thought it was interesting but probably not going anywhere. Checking back, now I can see I was incorrect.... Smiley

I'm a non-traditional age graduate student in math at a prestigious US university, and I have an interest in statistics and also computer science. I've got my client configured fine and a couple of my math buddies and are are talking about building a pool across our University LAN and looking into the mechanics of bitcoin for a little research project. Oh yeah, and free electricity Smiley

Greetings. 1st posting.

I was initially turned off by BC a few months ago when I heard that there was planned inflation. That's when I stopped listening. Boy do I wish I had taken 30 more seconds to investigate.

Kudos to Satoshi. I'm incredibly impressed at how he put the pieces together.

Kudos to the developers for making it better.

Kudos to everyone on the forum who contributes their 2 cents in thoughtful ways.

I'm really crossing my fingers that BTC takes off. I'm personally invested, but regardless, I know that BTC can and will change the world for the better - and that's even more important.

Cheers,
bc

www.trance104.com is my website. I love trading in the stock market and....... Bitcoins reminds me of the currency exchange. I mine bitcoins, but on a shitty little setup. Only getting about 70 Mhash/s. I may improve it depending on how far I want to take this.

I'm a Debian developer from Germany and got to know bitcoin since the ITP was filed. I use it since bitcoind hit Debian testing and do some small mining using the phoenix miner on a Radeon HD 5570 GPU. I consider accepting Bitcoins for my small Hosting business too.

I'm typically a lurker, so it'll be unnatural for me to pass the newbie posting threshold.

I'm a developer, so I'd love to contribute as a developer. I'm currently struggling with the most scarce of all resources, though.

This project is unique in that it intersects three of my top interests:

Austrian Economics (effectively)
Software Dev
Opportunity for profit

Since the launch.is slashdotting, I've been almost entirely consumed with BTC.

Hi there, I'm a chilean new user who wants to have quickly the 50 posts.

Me and some friends have a website about the global government (not conspiracy theories) called verdadahora.cl and I'm really excited with this new alternative of money who can break the control of the central banks.

And.. well, I think I will improve my english with the time xD

Hi,

I've been lurking around these forums for a month or so, but accountwise am a newcomer.

Mainly posting here so I can see some of the forum posts that I can't see (but google shows in search engines)

Hi,

so this is me  Smiley
I'm still trying to find out, how bitcoins work - not the use of them but the technical details without reading the source or puzzling the details from the protocol specification in the wiki.
Any hints for further reading? (If not, I will take the source if I find the time Smiley )

Just read about bitcoins last Friday, my head has been spinning, I always toyed with the idea of starting an alternative currency myself, this is better than anything I could've ever thought of.

Ready to start making Bitcoin exchanges more secure.

I just found out about Bitcoin a couple weeks ago and now they are having a depression because of hacked exchanges.

Anyone else thinking of building a full P2P Bitcoin exchange?

I did some work with with Distributed Hash Tables and distributed publish-subscribe frameworks in the past. This would be a potential resilient infrastructure to build an exchange.

I'm David.

I learned about bitcoins back in March while I was watching videos on TED. Somehow I got to a video of someone introducing BTC to a crowd, live. I was interested.

I tried to buy $10 usd worth (it was at 90cents) but was leery of sending cash through the mail. Now I'm kicking myself in the assets.  A tenner is not a big risk.

Hi,

just started to play around with this and opened an account on Mt.Gox to get my hands on some BTC... And a few hours later my email address is available together with account name and a password hash for every hacker on the internet. Cool.  Angry

At least I wasn't able to transfer something into that account yet, so nothing lost (but I expect more spam in my mail....).

See ya in the boards,
holgero.
