Ah, nice. The 1080 is a good card for gaming despite getting a little old.

I don't actually do much gaming since my daughter was born. She keeps us too busy. :p

Still it has held up. Need to replace the bottom of the case and maybe the mouse pad.

I used to trade alt-coins when I was in High school. I had a really fun time doing it too made a good bit of money for a high school student! Used it to buy some stuff I probably shouldn't had. Eventually I cashed out though because I needed the money to pay for college.

Yeah, I can imagine. Kids are a lot of work from the looks of it, but well worth it in the long run from the looks of it.

Yep, I'm doing CS and having fun with that! How have you been?
Ey, that's good to hear!
I'm doing pretty damn well I have to say. Work is going pretty great, have a forklift license, lost a lot of weight.. Could go on for a long time but don't want to derail the thread further. ^^"

I won $75 worth of BTC in some competition some years ago. When I finally got around to selling it, it had grown to more than $300.
I also did research on it in college and I have to say: it's a very interesting thing! IMO definitely has the potential to make significant impact on a societal level: a fully information based currency that follows stable and transparent rules rather than the whims/trustworthiness of a government. It's also anti-fragile: people can fork it anytime, to adapt and change it according to whatever problems/shortcomings arise (whichever side of the fork is the most robust is the one people will settle on).

It's still a young currency, so it doesn't yet have the infrastructure around it for it to be as convenient to use as traditional currencies, but that infrastructure is getting built (and it's probably easier to build it for Bitcoin than for traditional currencies). It could also become the international currency of choice, as it would be equally convenient to use in any part of the world (plus, you wouldn't have to worry about exchange rates).

A big shortcoming right now though is that more people speculate on it than use it, which makes its price rather volatile.

Yeah. I don't think this will change outside of a fork. BTC is designed to be deflationary with less produced every so many blocks. This means it is designed to go up in value over time so people are more likely to invest then spend.
