So I have spent almost 48 full hours logged into and participating in this forum since I discovered bitcoin around mid march of 2011. Although I feel as though the forum's counter is slightly off, probably under valued!

I can't seem to get enough of Bitcoin.

I try to tell myself "it's ok, you can take a break and watch some tv now or have a drink" - but I don't, which is odd.

Anybody else experiencing these addictive properties of Bitcoin?

I fear that I might start experiencing withdrawal symptoms or something if this forum ever gets DDOS'd!  Lips sealed

Yes. I think if the forum goes offline for a while, I might actually get to enjoy the outdoors!

Watching Bitcoin is so exciting for the opportunities and potential it holds.

For those of us mining, watching Bitcoin just got a lot more boring as the difficulty jumped 44% today.  That puts my rate of block generation around two days per block (4 Ghash/s).  Oh well, time to start building Bitcoin businesses.  It is exciting watching all the new users pour into the forum.  Some of them are quite talented and are making great contributions.

Being an old miner (March 2010), and having a happy amount of btc I can say that this has become a new obsession in my life.

From a simple return on investment aspect I don't have anything performing like this.  Which means it gets my attention.  Being part of something new, and something with so much potential is exciting (helps that the cost of entry was so low for me).

I think I may have a problem too. Shocked

My house is full of computers to the point where there is no room for me anymore. I'm living under a stack of empty video card boxes in my backyard. I've tapped into the high voltage lines above my house since I'm only wired for 200 amps but it's only a matter of time before the power company notices my partially melted/exposed wiring. When it rains my fillings tingle. I got rid of my stove and refrigerator to make room for more computers. I eat the animals that die after touching my makeshift power lines but birds and squirrels have become scarce in my area. The ones that still die are usually only partially cooked so I do the rest of my cooking over a set of quad 6990's. I think that the only thing that keeps me going these days is the sight of my BTC balance slowly rising but I only spend money on more computers, video cards and my 4 digit power bill. It's gotten so bad that I recently beat a kid to death for his gaming rig only to discover that it was "Powered by NVIDIA". I cried once I realized the ATI sticker on his case was there since his last upgrade. Now I can't look at an ATI sticker without seeing his cold, lifeless face staring back at me. My soul died that day.

just kidding
