Title: Getting started
Post by: ljackstar on April 08, 2013, 02:33:39 AM
I recently had been mining from BTC Guild using GUIMiner when I started to read a bit more and realized that both of those are frowned upon. I'm still looking for a different pool right now (was using Mt. Red for a tiny bit but got IP banned for 24 hours just for reseting my password) however I did switch my miner over to CGminer. I know that with other miners and with GUIminer I needed to pick certain flags to get things to run faster. Is there anything I need to do to setup CGminer? What about general setup? (I just downloaded the .zip and plugged in the pool address and my U/P on the first screen, haven't done anything else yet)

Thanks in advance for any help I receive, I look forward to sticking around and mining for a bit!
