Ok so I downloaded the bitcoin program and started it up. And the program started downloading thousands of blocks. I haven't clicked anything or signed up anywhere, I have tried and i think succeeded in finding my address, no sure though. Now it is still busy downloading blocks. On the overview screen it shows wallet out of sync. How do I sync this or does this happen once the blocks are done? How do I make/get/mine bitcoins, any websites that can be recommended? Do I have to add my own money to get started?
1) yes, "out of sync" means that it hasn't downloaded the whole blockchain yet.
2) to mine ("make") them, you need special hardware and software.
