I thought I'd introduce myself. I've known about bitcoins for a while but finally decided to take a look and investigate it, especially after hearing that one of the vendors I've been to before (MemoryDealers) is now accepting them.
I'm a systems engineer for a small fruit company and have been in this field for waaaaaay too long. Married (woo!) with a couple of college aged step kids (woowoo!)
Set up a miner (poclbm) on my MacPro at home since it generally just sits bored.
Though I do have a question. I haven't tried it yet, but, when I set up multiple miners (different computers of course) do I just point them back to the system running bitcoind? For example, I typically have a few other machines around the house generally idling. I could use the spare cycles to run a few more miners when they're not doing anything.
But otherwise, I'd been reading this board for a few days and thought I'd finally speak up and say hello.
PS: If anyone wants to send me a fraction of a btc to test out, I also wouldn't complain.
I've yet to see anything generated, but then the miner has only been running for about 3 days.
