Ok OP,

1)  So, you come on the forum looking for highly-skilled programmers to develop a website for you...no luck.

2)  Attitude quickly turns belligerent and you start talking about disharmony within the community.  Alright.

3)  Then, you want to be a taxi driver for BTC...OK.

4)  No response.

5)  Then, this thread is created.  Attitude quickly shifts again and the arrogance of the all-knowing emerges.

Note:  You registered less than 2 weeks ago.

So, a few possibilities emerge.  Since you claim you had known about BTC for months, my guess is that you either missed out on the June Bubble or lost quite a bit on the way down from it and are bitter.  Obviously, you didn't get in before the June bubble and escape with a handsome profit or you wouldn't be here bitching about the "little game" we're playing.  

It's also possible you're just mentally unstable and are largely unaware of your apparent contradictions in personal intention.

A few other possibilities exist, but they aren't much brighter.

My advice:  Don't be so bitter.  When ASIC miners are released, if you act quick enough you will be able to catch another glorious opportunity to profit.  Don't be late to the bus 'cause it's going to be jam-packed.

wtf are those?

GPUs are like busses.  They don't go very fast and they require a lot of energy, but they take you wherever you want to go, accommodate many people, and are appropriate for a variety of occasions.

FPGAs are like hybrids.  They still don't go very fast and accommodate fewer people, but they conserve energy and still are appropriate for a variety of occasions.

ASICs are like Ferraris.  They have one purpose and one purpose only -- to go fast and to be as efficient at doing this as possible.

so I assume they, like Ferrari engines, don't last long before needing expensive maintenance?

Right, except they have no expensive moving parts (only the fan) and not anywhere near as much heat.  As long as you keep your fan from accumulating too much dust and throwing a bearing, they should last at least a decade.  If the fan does go, most miners will shut themselves off.  As soon as you replace the fan for < $10 you'll be good to go again.

Hmm... lets see:

(1) I've profited from various business deals relating to bitcoin
(2) I now have assets that no-one can seize or hyperinflate
(3) I have a chance to start my own business with ZERO licensing and legal fees - in the "real world" it would have cost probably half a million dollars to start, therefore requiring me to sell off major equity, deal with corrupt regulatory agencies, etc. ( the big banks own the regulators, their real job is to kill the little guy )
(4) I have made new friends. This forum has a lot of smart and funny people ( not enough women though Wink )
(5) I'm having FUN! A LOT of it.
(6) Bitcoin is awesome. Very.

Hmmm, anything else I'm missing here?

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.
