    Let's see going on 6 years ago this thread was created. I thought I was over my grief about reformatting, but when bitcoin's price is over $2000...it still hurts. anyone else like me?

    In debt up to my eyeballs, kids, and married. I'm the idiot that deleted $100,000+ off my hard drives.

    Not as bad as you, but I had ~10 BTC that got caught up in the Cryptsy trading site fiasco.

    Yes, hurts a little as you say... credit cards being paid off alone would have been a big big help!

    i did not loose any BTC, but i sold all mine in the $25 price range.

    still made some money and paid for several GFX cards. so i made out ok, but it could have been much better if i had waited.
