1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Proposed shape for the “bits” symbol is a square, and to keep the gold color. on: May 03, 2014, 11:15:18 AM
2  Bitcoin / Mining / Brag: mined enough to pay my rent this month on: January 31, 2014, 12:26:12 PM
OK so I like keeping track of total mined BTC every month, and just see what that is in fiat at the end of the month.
This is the second month in a row (and quite possibly the last one ever) that I made enough to pay my rent with for that month.  Cool
3  Bitcoin / Meetups / UK London - idea: 6 year anniversary party, Jan 2015. on: January 20, 2014, 04:29:07 PM
Hi kids!

As I was riding the 149 through the City the other day, the Tears For Fears song "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" started playing in my headphones. It was a sunny day, and I thought 'one day we'll have our own skyscraper here'. That might be decades away, but maybe we could have a party at least?

So the idea I had was to have a party in January next year. I thought it would be cool if we could all pay for it now(-ish) in BTC and whatever happens with the price will set the budget for the party. Let's say 0.1 BTC per person+date. If it does another 50x we can rent a top floor skyscraper venue and have an extravagant open bar thing, and if the price plummets we'll have pints in a shitty bar in Shoreditch instead.

It's just an idea, whaddaya think?

4  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / PSU Seasonic X not working (fixed!) on: November 28, 2013, 02:42:07 PM
Hello everybody,
My Butterfly Labs order of two BFL SC 60 Gh/s was finally delivered today. I've heard bad things about the PSUs they come with so I decided to get one of these:

Seasonic X-1050 1050W 80Plus Gold

But it's not working. Yesterday I connected it to the wall and flipped the switch, and there was no reaction to the fan, but I thought since it's got nothing to power maybe it does that. Today I connected it to a BFL machine via two Pci-e power cables, and again no reaction - am I missing something obvious or is my PSU dead?  Shocked

Like, will it not work if I only run stuff via the Pci-e cables? I haven't used proper ATX PSU's in my rig building before. The BFL miners are working fine, right now I'm using the ugly/noisy ones they shipped with.

What do I do?

I started "hobby mining" in April this year, and then started to build a proper rig. Now I have a 4 GH/s ASIC rig, and today I received a payment that completed a full Bitcoin for the first time.

Here's my rig if anybody's interested Smiley
7  Bitcoin / Mining / ASIC misfortune: Anker Uspeed USB-hub + msata SSD broke down. on: August 07, 2013, 09:12:52 AM

Yesterday, as I was hanging out with one of my girls, I casually checked in on BTC Guild to make sure things were running smoothly at home when I realised something bad was going on. So this morning I not-so-casually raced home through the London morning commute, surprising my housemates at breakfast, and found that my Anker Uspeed 10-port USB 3 hub was on the fritz. It wasn't completely dead: there were short-lived flickers of light but, and I could run one USB erupter for a while but after a minute or so that too stopped working.

Right now I have two erupters plugged in to the existing ports, instead of my usual nine. I have ordered a new USB-hub of the same make, so I should be up and running again tomorrow. Has anybody else had any problem with this hub? Is it not suitable to run 24/7 like this?

Hello kids!
I have been around for a few months now, but I haven't had any reason to post yet.

After having read up on Bitcoin and mining I have decided it is worth a shot. For now I have just one GPU running (65 Mh/s) and I'm planning to get serious with the whole ASIC game. I have four orders of hardware from Butterfly Labs for a total of 134 Gh/s, and I am probably going to buy some more from KnC Miner before the end of the year.

I have also invested a large proportion of my savings in Bitcoins the last few months, and I'm expecting the price to go up over the coming years. I have used LocalBitcoins, as well as MtGox for buying. In general, I'm making long term plans - I'm thinking 5, 10 or 20 years for both saving and mining - wish me luck!

What more? Oh, I'm Swedish and I live in London, UK Smiley
