In my previous post, I showed you a way to mine Ether on your testnet. Because Ethereum is the “World Computer” you have to pay a small amount of fee (Ether) just to do anything even in the testnet.

After publishing my post Jeff Lau pointed me to a site that gives you ether on testnet for free.

Here is my quick walk through of how to do that.

It’s nice that you don’t have to wait 30 min just to get enough Ether to play with Ethereum.
