BFGMiner (St. Barbara's FPGA/GPU Miner) 3.0 will be featuring and refocussing on ASICs.
Therefore, the original name no longer really fits anymore.

Since I can't think of any obvious fit, I've decided to have a little contest to see if anyone can come up with a new name for it.
Bonus points if you can make it elegantly fit the current "BFGMiner" abbreviation-name by simply redefining "F" and "G". Smiley

If I use your suggestion, there will be a Bitcoin reward.
The exact amount will be based on how good I think it works, but probably 200 - 600 TBC (about 0.33 - 1 BTC).

NOTE: This contest has completed. Thanks for participating.

You know..  When i saw the name BFGMiner - my mind went back to the days of DOOM and the BFG - i just assumed it was modeled after that in terms of power and capability..

At the risk of being cliche - i guess i would suggest:  Big Effin' Gun Miner..

But i am probably not serious.  Or likely to be taken that way.

But its later and my brains fried so...

What about simply AFGMiner ... ASIC/FPGA/GPU Miner ?

I like that - it could also stand for  A Freaking Great (miner)

Of maybe even better just AFMiner ... ASIC/FPGA Miner assuming that GPU will join CPU on the idle bench of mining ..

What the hell is up with you Luke-Jr, using the tonal system is complicating things for nothing. Nothing.
How is confusing newcomers/everyone doing anything good?
