I know It's not really my place to be complaining but as you know the bitcoin faucet (http://freebitcoins.appspot.com/) has been down for quite a while due to them not having any coins because potentially somebody is abusing the system. Anyway I have tried to use the new bitcoin street faucet, (http://faucet.bitcoin.st/) but I have had many problems Sad. At first it was a firewall problem (port 8333 being closed) now it's this! every time i put in a valid address and cellphone number it says:
   ***ERROR***
        ERROR
All I want to do is try out this exciting new currency then donate it back to the faucet when I'm done. Could anyone help me with this or give me a reason for it giving me an error, or possibly loan me 0.01 bitcoins?
I don't mean to seem entitled at all, I'm just curious to try put this new system and if I like invest in some bitcoins. So, please let me know if they're any other bitcoin faucets out there that I could try. Any help much appreciated Smiley.

Start mining in a pool.  In no time flat you'll have your bit penny.  There isn't much you can learn by somebody just handing you a bitcent.

But if you want one to play with.. sure, post an address.. I'll pony up.

5 centibits?

Wouldn't mBTC denote .001?

It's a Bitcoin that wears beat up jeans and a t-shirt and hangs out on the corner. It tends to smell a bit funny too  Grin

I believe you are correct. A bitnick would be 5cBits or 50 mbits

I'm so very glad that bitcoin didn't start off using "credits" or "creds". That would have been very lame.

Thanks for getting me started man! I've spent .04 of my bitcoins on a bitcoin blackjack site (http://btcjack.1btchost.com/) and have stopped at .2 bitcoins. Thanks for helping me when the faucets were down Smiley.
