I got a sad story for you.

There used to be this company, Butterfly Labs, they were going to come out with the first ASIC miner and make GPUs obsolete...

 I gave them my money for a couple of foot warmers.  The day I got them, I had to unplug the Christmas tree lights because a breaker popped when they started up and then the same night one of the PSU's cooked itself while I was at work which woke my wife up with that terrible ozonated burning plastic smell.  The next morning I set them up on the kitchen counter where we had a 20A service using an old computer PSU and the paper-clip trick so I could free up the circuit for the Christmas lights.  By this time, she was a little upset with my new hobby but she tolerated it because she loves me Wink

i don't know why but sometimes i like to respond @you roach when i'm totally bored and like i'm just watching football with my laptop, my GF is out and there's not much to see..... then i just know whatever i write roach will respond, cause he knows i'm like the only one that is responding to him, the fact that he knows that i have the least knowledge about BTC etc and still he takes his time to quote me every time that really means his time must be worthless AF ?
investing time where there is nothing to accomplish= the worst investment ever, instead go learn few things how to earn some fiat to buy your metals, like maybe buying and selling nazi shit? Roll Eyes


roach still time till 20.00 CET then i have some social dinner things with a few friends, few drinks, good food etc
you know just something your missing down in that basement Roll Eyes
investment still not to bad for maintaining the HODLers life Grin


mic you are far from the least knowledgable about bitcoin here. You don’t need to be a tech wizard to make lots of money from bitcoin, simply owning bitcoin is more than a lot of people here.

Don’t be hard on yourself, you’re one of my favourite people here.

Put r0ach on ignore!
hey THX man, i just believe in it(BTC) and have my personal perspective around BTC, and that says i MUST HODL and must try to LIVE with it where its possible @the time.... so when i can transact with BTC i do, i think its as important as many of the other things....
yeah the TECH-side is another pair of sleeves for me, i'm just not a real good computer guy but i'm improving myself on every part Wink
lots of thx in here for many times of help and standing by
LFC our day of a champions league game @ anfield will surely happen btw 0-3 nice
cheers you will be having something to party on during this DIP-days

 I got mine in early November 2013 and to add insult to injury, the (goods and services) tax came to more than the value of the Bitcoin I could mine with it over its lifetime (at the time it arrived) but I paid it anyway because I knew there would be no refund.  I mined until the price of electricity was more than the value of Bitcoin being mined and sold the pair and the PSU to some local kid for $300.  If memory serves, I mined just over 1 Bitcoin with the pair but had I spent the money directly on Bitcoin at the time of purchase, I could have had ~60 coins plus another 2 for the taxes and I don't know how many for the 24/7 @ 600W electricity costs - oh yeah and the stories that nobody is interested in.

Now that’s a sad story. I’m so happy I decided not to mine with ASIC miners. When gpu’s we’re dead for mining I stopped mining. I was even able to sell all of my old mining equipment and get about half of the money back.

I got a sad story for you. My wife was constantly bitching back when I was mining because I turned my garage into a mining room with noisy box fans and shit. She had to go in there to do laundry and always bitched every time she washed clothes.

She needed a new vacuum. I thought I would do something to make her appreciate the bitcoin mining so I went to spendbitcoins and bought an amazon card. I sat her down at my computer with me, had her watch as I traded the bitcoins for the amazon card. Let her go to amazon and choose the vacuum she wanted. We spent 7 btc for it.

One of her favorite jokes now is to tell people about the $140,000 eureka vacuum we used to own. FML

if we always think like that? Roll Eyes
my friend and his brother lived every day of there BTC's every time they ordered food or whatever payed with BTC directly...., they also always joke about the very expensive durums,pizza's etc
but i guess we all have some VERY expensive shit cause of BTC Roll Eyes

The sad part is, I tried to give her something to keep her from bitching about bitcoin only to give her something new to bitch about.  Undecided

Oh yea, we have some stuff that if we calculate how much that btc would be worth now it's funny. For me, some computer parts and Christmas gifts just off the top of my head. I can also look at it another way too though. Like my car for example, I did the math and it was only $213 of my original investment. That's how I was able to convince myself to pull the trigger  Cheesy

edit: now she's hitting me and wont stop til I take her shopping.  See you!


I was robbed for some Jalapenos and some of the medium sized ones.. My order came like 9 months late, so I knew not to trust them by the time monarchs came out, which was before I even got my order.  Angry


I have a shelf full of Monarchs that I pre-ordered.  In an alternate universe where BFL didn't exist I have a 747 with my name on it.

Sorry to hear it, but yea, if Butterfly Labs did what they said they'd do, we'd all be better off. I might own a seastead already lol
When I placed my order, not only did they say that I could get a refund at any point before my order status changed to processing, and then keep my money, but I even had one of the jerks on the phone telling me a specific date mine should arrive, before I sent them the money. Suddenly when I request my refund (before status changed to processing) they changed the policy to no refunds and denied ever saying that. Took 9 or 10 months to get the order. They make me sick..  Angry


My GPU rigs I built before I heard about Butterfly labs made more profits. I would have probably 10x more BTC if they would have refunded me when I asked, and 100x or 1000x more if they'd shipped when they said they would.

Too late.  Youtube already scrubbed that racist propaganda.  Into the memory hole.

Check again, it's up.  And nothing racist about it.  But today the word racist is mostly a badge of honor compliment, or a dog whistle for material neo-Marxists don't want you to see, so people will see your comment and just say "cool! I better click this!".  There's absolutely nothing racist about expelling the evil cult of Judaism, just as there's nothing racist about expelling the Charles Manson cult.  

Anyway, even if it was racist to expel an evil cult, what are you going to do about it?  Nothing.  Force is the only valid consensus mechanism in the real world, not stupid Rube Goldberg machines called digital currency that don't even do anything they claim to, just attempt to obfuscate what they're doing while really being centralized.  Crying "dats racist" like a little child no longer has any sway in the real world.  Find new propaganda to try and trick people into your neo-Marxist views.

I'm always more bullish about bitcoin, but I actually hope it stays sideways-ish until December 1st, that's when I can get more filthy fiat to dump  Cheesy

If, the price goes lower like some say it could, 3k and such, I'd get more fiat to BTFD for sure. I may not be the smartest person here, but I know that's dirt cheap coin these days  Grin
