I keep getting random influxes of BTC....five cents here, 1BTC there....I can only assume they're from people on the forums, as I know no one who uses bitcoins.  Thanks to whomever it may be.  I'd really like to know who.

Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

alright, alright, i confess. i think i liked the way you explained how inflation can still occur with loans, and that a hard limit of 21 million coins isn't insurance against inflation.

i wanted to type this in the "explanation" box, or whatever, but it won't let you type in a description when not sending to an IP.

Can you get transaction fees without finding a block?

Nope. You only get them when you publish a block. It's added to the 50 BTC created from nothing.

One of 'em was me. I decided to start giving out a few BTCs to people whose posts I appreciated Wink
