Lol. I was afraid this would happen. Like 72 hours ago I got this itch to buy some bitcoins, knowing that wasn't a possibility without having to wait I started reading about mining, and then realizing that BTC was out of the question, I started reading about LTC. I now have like 5 or 6 different wallets, a pretty decent handle on both sha256 and Scrypt mining, and last night I'm on this site building a damn PC that I'm attempting to justify as a "gaming/mining" computer as if I'll ever play any games on it. Lol. I'm saying all this good natured with a smile because I know I'm in this wormhole and still can't stop from reading about difficulty rates and how to exchange those coins and setting up a wallet and "miner". I went from literally zero knowledge about any of this to figuring out how to hook multiple computers up to the same wallet to solo-mine on. I still don't have much of a clue about anything compared to those that have been around a while, but I gotta be honest, this is way more fun than I had ever thought it would be. Dare I say it's almost addicting. Anyway hope everyone has a fantastic holiday and new year. I'm off to who knows what coin now, at this point I just want to hit a block to see what it looks like, I don't even care if they're worth anything, it just fun.
