Hahahahahahaha, I'm new to Bitcoin as well, I think it is a revolutionary idea and it needs coins to circulate hence it needs mners. I've just had a play with bitcoinplus.com  Cheesy, my quad core PC can get a payout of 0.0000446 BTC once an hour (roughly). I believe solving a block gets you 50 BTC, it would take me 130 years to get that on bitcoinplus.com  Cheesy.


Probably because you are CPU mining. Do you have all cores mining, or just one?

Probably because I'm using a web app, but yep all 4 cores are running at 100%.
Gotta say that getting started on this mining business is complicated can't even get pyopencl to install on Fedora

Throws up this

Code:
In file included from src/wrapper/wrap_cl.cpp:1:0:
src/wrapper/wrap_cl.hpp:27:19: fatal error: CL/cl.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

It's interesting to read this.  The experience of getting into bitcoins seems not to have changed much from when I jumped in the pool in April.  What seems to have changed, having been around a while now, is the experience once you're in.  Things now seem much more secure.  The infrastructure is getting noticeably more robust.

It's frustrating that the process of getting in is still so difficult, but I think it's for the best that that aspect hasn't been the focus of too much attention.  It's good, in my view, that what's been getting attention instead is the underlying infrastructure.

OP, thanks for this great post, we can learn a lot from a fresh perspective.

Did you find on your journeys a link to Bitcoin StackExchange? (Not stock exchange).
It is a Q&A site about Bitcoin, and I see as one of its prime goals helping newbies such as yourself.

There's a link to it from bitcoin.org, and I wonder just how many people actually follow that link and ask questions there (vs the people that discover Bitcoin , don't go to Bitcoin SE, and feel overwhelmed by its complexity)

When I discovered Bitcoin, back in April, you could still buy them via Paypal (through good old Bitcoin Morpheous). Also, in Israel (where I live), we happen to have an easy Bitcoin exchange that takes a simple domestic bank transfer and gives you BTC.

2012 is the year when Bitcoin usability will really start kicking in. We already have wallet encryption, light "client side" wallets, and soon Scripts. The future is looking good.

Please do not pm me, use ron@bitcoin.org.il instead
