    Should've put in $100 USD back when I first found out about it. Hindsight and all that...

    Not to make you feel bad, but doing this would have bought a lot of bourbon.

    Yeah, for a couple of years I mined bitcoins with my GPU's and used the proceeds to buy new PC equipment. Over that time period I cleared about $1k after power and equipment costs so it was worth it to me. Unfortunately, I was sitting on about 100 bit coins when the price fell out over a year ago and I ended up selling them for about $3 each which broke even with the power I had used for that batch. Too bad I did not sell them when they hit $250 a few months ago, not to mention the almost $400 they are trading for now.

    I remember seeing them for $1 too and thinking that I should buy a bunch just for the heck of it... argh! Now you can't mine them unless you have an ASIC, GPU mining is essentially dead.
