Goddamnit didnt think of that... anyway to let virtualbox harness power at all? Or does linux need to be standalone?

So to get this running, i need to download ubuntu iso + linux catalyst drivers + mining client = BTC?

If virtualbox doesn't let OpenCL work properly, you won't be able to use it to mine.

ubuntu iso + linux catalyst drivers + mining client should do great... but you also got to install the OpenCL drivers if they arent included in the CAT drivers. you got to download the bitcoin client as well also. There are a few Linux guides if you do a search in the bitcoin forums

Ive returned a vastly smarter man, as a result ive downloaded linux twice, made that dual boot. For no real purpose.

Currently downloading the blocks using client 0.3.21 and poclbm0428, on windows that is

As for how you receive money from it? (this allowed or not? saw something on first page of thread but not too sure, so feel free to edit this post) you go send coins and send to the address of buyer and receive whatever reward via paypal or whoever?

Also is anyone here part of a pool? They worth it or not?

More and more questions, i know ive got GPU mining up and going but how do i know/see CPU is as well?

Oh yea, does it need a constant internet connection? My internet is turned off every night...

Will look into selling more once ive acumalated some BTC in the first place.
Good/bad price is going down? Price has dropped from 30 to 21 in the last 48hrs
Also must you run the batch file whenever you want to mine? Or just the bitcoin client?

I wonder how BTC works as far as taxes are concerned.
I believe in the US bitcoin earnings (when sold for USD) that are greater than something like $3500 are taxed via the Capitol Earnings Tax.

This is good news, since the Capitol Earnings Tax is less than the standard income tax.

Also, I think we're going to see a huge price jump soon :toast:

Is Dwolla better? I'll prolly have to xfer the funds to my family in the UK then they can send it to me or something, but i'd like a payment system that is decent. Pay pal would be good, then i could buy stuff online, but there are too many paypal scams with bit-coins, or so i read!

thanks, i put those flags in and my output went up 25% :)

It has gone down to $11 usd today, a massive fall. it looks like that $30 high was a kind of manipulation. The market actually seems quite interesting and reminds me of the one in eve online.

No problem, havent tested it out yet but i have seen other users using -w 128/64 and one guy using -v 2 no idea on impact on performance but -w could increase as the worksize is smaller

Market does seem pretty volatile but i dont really plan on trading them until i build up some BTC at least, currently only have around 1/4 BTC

Now is the time to buy, folks. I don't think we'll see it this low in the near future.

Expect $30-60 per in the coming month. You can take that to the bank.

Yes cause theirs a use for them, albeit a virtual one. Bitcoins.. whats the use of them outside of trading them for cash, how can something with no use be worth money.

they can be exchanged for a "few" different kinds of goods. At the moment, most of the market (i assume) is driven by speculation, but having a trading base, where people are willing to exchange it for dollars means it actually has a fairly decent chance of taking off as a currency. The US Gov. would probably try to shut it down in the future tho. Even if indirectly.

Well only because people are earning money doing nothing thats based on nothing.. Unrealistically (in that this is highly unlikely to happen) if it grew exponentially it could seriously hurt an already damaged us economy.
