I signed up 7 months (210 days) ago and have been online on this forum for 44 days.

That is over 20%.

Then take away 8 hours a day for sleeping it is over 31%

Then if you take away 40 hours a week for work that makes it pretty damn close to 50%

I also seem to on average make 15 posts a day.

So, are they right? Am I obsessed?

You were one of the first posters that I put an identity to due to your frequency. So yes Goat, I'd say that you COULD be considered obsessed. I think it's in a good way however as I feel that you actually bring to the community. Just my few satoshis... Cheesy

Let's just chalk it off as that you're heavily inspired.  Smiley

That's the first warning to anyone new to bitcoins, you may become obsessed even if you have never been in a forum before.

There will be a twelve step program someday.  Just know that you are not alone.

41 days here... though I joined up a year ago, so I guess that makes me less obsessed than you.  Wink

Who sleeps 8 hours a day?  I'm sure there is a direct correlation to my decrease in sleep and my increase of time on here.

I'm not that obsessive with online time, but before I knew about bitcoin I wanted to build water-cooled rigs with nice ricer PSUs and new components and a good-looking case, and then overvolt the RAM and CPU. I wanted to purchase some 9800GTs to do some folding to "cure cancer". I had my PC on 24/7 folding, etc

Now I only care about price/performance, I don't care if the PSU I buy is a bit twisted with tobacco smoke, I just care about the price. Used parts are the best thing, and I undervolt stuff to get less heat, etc. Forget about anything nVidia until kepler, and I won't even think about using any part of my PC to fold. It makes me sad  Embarrassed

And, when I see a computer, I think how many MH/s can I get from there, at what price, then I try to calculate the power cost, and see if it's profitable. When you talk to me about dollars or any currency IRL, I will explain what Bitcoin is to you.

Im with you mate, my ROI on all my 2nd hand mining rigs is usually 2.5 months Cheesy

It depends on a lot of factors.  Right now for anyone paying in the $0.20 or more range for electricity, for instance, is losing money  when mining at current difficulty and market exchange rate with relatively efficient hardware (e.g., 5870s).  So in those instances, it doesn't matter how little you pay for hardware, it currently is not worth it to send electrons through.

Excluding FPGAs, they're still profitable, but have a 9 month or more break even, not counting electric
