I was looking to buy a physical bitcoin once, with bitcoins ... actually, merely a worthless representation of one ... sortof as a 'desktop mascot' for my den. But then I woke up.

I'm a small-time miner. I mine bitcoins. Then I sell them to pay my bills. In a sense, that is paying for a service.

Hm, prices aren't bad actually. I was looking through Bitcoin Deals earlier and everything seemed a solid 30 to 40 percent over Amazon, which is what prompted my initial skepticism. But I guess this kind of service is easier to offer at a discount. Thanks for the site link!

Yea there prices are good ... my company has similar pricing wondering if i should accept bitcoins also on my site ,   Also i been toying around mining with some of my spare hardware.

I suspect the vast majority of people convert their Bitcoins to a local currency to purchase things. I used to do that. Now that the community is growing though, it's getting easier to buy stuff without having to convert.

I am in desperate need of a new laptop to further my Bitcoin related development. Anything you can donate is appreciated. Goal is $1,000 USD. Bitcoin address:  1ByQRLuVQHUdJoTDm6UtaFu2KDemjBQaRQ Thank you!

I can but currently my hosting site does not reflect that , 

And once i am not a newbie i will add that to my profile ...  shameless self promotion is not always good

Does anyone think there are any app developer / Php guys who work for bitcoins ?

Using Bitcoin for currency exchange - I have payments going into an account in one country and rather than paying 5% fees to a bank, am moving it in coins.  Going to save me about US100 this month.

I have used my Bitcoins to buy: hardware, coding/web design and I try to use my Bitcoins as much as possible to support the community Smiley
I also sell Spotify codes and a couple of other things for bitcoins, so I guess I use my bitcoins both as a seller and as a buyer
