I read about it on some underground forum where I stepped accidentally because I was looking for some guide how to protect myself from hackers.

Friend at work got me into it.  Strange, really, considering when you tell others to start mining it just increases difficulty (however minor it may be).  He probably doesn't like that I already have 3x the hashing power.

Stumbled across bitcoins while looking for a VPN provider. First thought to myself, "what the hell is that? Looks to complicated." Then a few weeks later paypal did something that totally screwed over my ebay buyer account that had a perfect score. Now I'm sticking with the bitcoin bandwagon until the end, for better or worse.

I've been researching it for a while before I decide to take a dive into to it myself.  It looks like a good way to start investing. Even though I know it's not guaranteed.

Was reading a review of AMD video cards on bit-tech and in the comments section someone mentioned Bitcoin.  I was like what the heck is that but then after researching for a bit I got hooked.  Now I am up to 8Gh/s and still going.  Grin

Tired of substandard power distribution in your ASIC setup???   Chris' Custom Cablez will get you sorted out right!  No job too hard so PM me for a quote

over 18 month ago when PayPal was getting on my nerves with their policy and keeping in transactions for 21 days. Since this wasn't only happening to me on the usual l33t boards the talk came to Bitcoin as payment method and I liked the concept from the start.
