Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum (I think)... reason I am not sure is that a few years ago I was HEAVILY into BTC and mining.  That part of my life is a bit of a blur but I do remember using my old SET @ HOME boxes to mine - I did this pretty hardcore for a few months.  I got out of it when I got a new job and ended up losing my crypto and all my wallet information (I kinda just fell out of everything bitcoin).  Anyway - I just recently built a new btc site and wanted to buy a few bitcoins to get started (no time and no interest in trying to mine anymore).  I thought it would be quite simple and figured with the advancements of exchanges I'd have no problem.  wrong.  Multiple transactions were denied by Gox, coinbase, my bank, etc... I guess we're just not there yet.  Finally I ended up doing a cash transaction w/ localbitcoins.com.  Disappointing to say the least - I thought the world would be a little more accepting upon my return to the scene.

Looking forward to getting back into this (at least a little) - playing with my new website (it's gambling) and seeing what happens... if nothing else I'm honing my technical skills again and enjoying re-learning!

Sounds like you are pretty experienced with BTC. Can you send me a PM to your gambling site?

you might want to try to find/recover your old wallet.  I got restarted on bitcoin because I founf an old wallet that had 2BTC in it. which today is worth a lot more that the 97 cents I paid for them.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!  I'm probably not as experienced as you think... I'm one of those ADHD people that learns a little about a lot.  I have spent over 25 years developing software then web apps and am an IA/Tech PM now but I don't go super deep into any one discipline.  

I pm'd the site to b!z but don't want to seem like I am spamming so I am not gonna post it here.  Maybe after I've spent some time on this site and contributed a bit I'll post it in gambling.  Looking forward to some good discussions!

How many Bitcoin were in your wallet before it was lost? Really sad to see money gone in that way..
