    I mined it for about 1 month make 2k$ and was able to return all the shit I bought when bitcoin bombed. :D

    I had 3 pc's in crossfire and used my main pc which had/has a 6990. I never bought any shit from the underground area though. Just sold it on mt. gox.

    Those are some of the higher exchange rates I've seen. looks like it's gone up a bit might be worth it. I havent' checked how much power cost for a bit though.

    It's like finding prime numbers. Takes computing power.

    You just send your money to mtgox.com and buy on the exchange.

    Or you can try your luck with coinbase.com, but there is so much demand nowadays that they are almost always sold out.

    Mm negatory. It depends entirely on your rig. Mining is extremely profitable for those who are good at it and with the new chips (asics) arriving, its full on gold rush mode right now.

    Bitcoin isnt a business, its an open source project. There are businesses that use it however.

    use blockchain.info with 2 factor authentication (like google authenticator on your phone). In fact, in every service you use bitcoin related, make sure you are using 2 factor auth.

    Any other questions, just shoot.
