Talk to your tax guy. Electricity costs are tax-deductible, if you work it right. you need to register a business, keep good notes, but there are a lot of things you can deduct as well. rent and insurance on a pro-rated basis...
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Claymore - ETH + LBRY - "STUCK" running in '-mode 1' despite '-mode 0' set. ???? on: March 18, 2018, 06:26:10 PM
I get strange switch settings from Claymore's miner, as well. Things like remote port management, it must be something in the .exe code. Obviously it's not using that config.txt file as its source. I used the README!! file and info from nanopool  to make a start.bat file.

here's the one for nanopool, the pools are all somewhat different in detail,

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool -ewal <Eth_Wallet_Adress>.<RigName>/<email_adress> -epsw x -mode 1 -ftime 10 -mport localhost:-3391 -ethi 10 -platform 2

In Windows, you'd make a desktop shortcut to that start.bat file and start your miner that way.

just changing that one line isn't going to do anything, you need to uncomment the "EthDcrMiner64.exe" command as well as the -epool/-ewal/-epsw ones. I like using a file because you explicitly feed it the details, the miner software doesn't have to go looking at the "defaults".

PS. I'm just learning this stuff by trial and error, I'm no 'expert'. I'm still trying to figure things out myself. At least, that one works.

PPS. I see I used my eth-only file, but the principle is the same for dual-mining. set the -dpool/-dwal/-d(etc) switches in the start.bat file as well.
