... and says, "Hey, Uncle.  I just noticed today that the bitcoin client that I thought was gone from my computer is still running in the dock.  How do I know if I generated anything?"

He's a bit of a gamer, but not a computer geek.  He literally didn't notice that he's had a bitcoin client running for months, and he never turns his computer off.

I told him how to check, and then he told me that he generated three blocks since October.  "How much is that worth, Unc?" 

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

By default, yes.  I'm his only uncle.

He doesn't, as he is more about the social networking thing.  Still, he probably wouldn't have noticed anyway, because his client predates the rise of the GPU miner and still uses the internally provided CPU miner in the client.  All of his blocks were found before October.

Damn, that's like $3000!  He could use that to put together a couple really good mining rigs, and then get even MORE bitcoins!  Smiley
