  1. Are Bitcoins as good as real money ?? Well thieves think so, Everything old is new again: Man mugged in New York, only this time for his Bitcoins All I can say is "a fool and his bitcoin are easily parted"
  2. I just got a Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X, 4GB GDDR5 card for, a little late, Christmas present. I currently have an EVGA GT 640 in my new build desktop. It more than does it for everyday use, light gaming, etc. But it really sucks when it comes to intensive work like Bitcoin mining, maybe 30 mH/s if I throw a few CPU cores in with it. What I want to do, if it's possible, is put them both in with the old one dedicated to pushing my usual video and the new one for bitcoin or litecoin mining. I have plenty of PSU, CPU, and RAM to do it. But can I install a nVidia card and a ATI card in the MOBO at the same time? My thought is if they were both pushing video, then no. If they are used for separate functions, maybe? I do have a slightly older ATI graphics card that will more than do the trick if switching that out with the nVidia would help the possibilities. Anyone here have any ideas, where to get more info, etc?
  3. and all that money elsewhere, maybe the BitCoin idiocy will cease.

    An Intro To Bitcoin: Can A Virtual Currency Work?
  5. This is kinda' sad... From ars technica: Unknown hackers broke into Bitcoinica, a site that trades the virtual currency. by Dan Goodin - May 12, 2012 1:40 am UTC More than $87,000 worth of the virtual currency known as Bitcoin was stolen after online bandits penetrated servers belonging to Bitcoinica, prompting its operators to temporarily shutter the trading platform to contain the damage. Friday's theft came after hackers accessed Bitcoinica's production servers and depleted its online wallet of 18,547 BTC, as individual Bitcoin units are called, company officials said in a blog post published on Friday. It said the heist affected only a small fraction of Bitcoinica's overall bitcoin deposits and that all withdrawal requests will be honored once the platform reopens.

Is that screwy or what? https://bitcointalk....21159#msg921159 I originally saw this at /. --> http://it.slashdot.o...-had-no-backups
