I just started with the BTC scene about 5 hours ago Tongue
I'm loving learning it so far and think I have a long way to go, It's nearly my bedtime, hah, but I'll be up again in the morning to study some more.
BTCs are interesting and I can't wait to start earning, I want to replace my actual cash for BTC, it all seems a little expensive now though. Lips sealed

I tried mining in a pool earlier, but my hash rates are horrendous on this low powered CPU laptop of mine. I'm going to build a rig soon.
I've earned a few small amounts of BTC on free websites so far, and entered into some "prize" BTC sites Smiley

I'm rather excited about all this to be honest Smiley

I found out about Bitcoin by randomly going to http://c.cc/ in november 2010 Tongue
I thought nothing of it then, and carried on.

I started mining (40mh/s on a nVidia GTX 260) in march of 2011 when the boom happened, and I really regretted not having started mining right when I found out about Bitcoin...

Now, after expanding my mining operation, I have plenty of coins Smiley

I get mine visiting the bitcoin faucet every day for several weeks in those times when the faucet gave you not so little amounts.

My first fraction of a bitcoin came from one of the "free coins" sites - bitcoinfaucet or coinad or something.

My first whole bitcoin was purchased.

Mined it in the slushpool off a $50 craigslist special video card.
The memory of it almost makes me hear dial-up modems.

I got mine off of eBay.  $6.50 or $7 per coin, but I didn't have to wait 30 days for my dwolla account to allow me to send money to MtGox.

I won a few 50 bitmill freerolls on Seals With Clubs and then played cash games for a while.  Before then, I had nothing but what I first got from the Bitcoin Faucet and then dailybitcoins, while they still gave a whole bitmill.
