I just wanted to introduce myself as a delegate candidate. I have been lurking in these forums since last year, but now I want to be a bigger part of this community. I feel the best way I can do that is to use my IT skills and resources to run a reliable delegate.
I originally became involved by mining Protoshares when the only way to do so was with a CPU. I run about 5 different computers in my home network, and had them working around the clock mining as much as I could. Eventually I converted to GPU mining, buying 4 video cards and mining with GPU/CPUs. Eventually that lost any profitability and I worried that I would not have much to contribute anymore. But I have been following the development of Bitshares and the idea behind delegates.
After researching and installing software/hardware I have now setup my own delegate in Canton, Ohio in a reliable data center. I want to be a part of the community, and I would hope you can vote for me. Thanks!
