I saw the first photo of the power plug. I get the end that plugs into the AVALON, but the other end that plugs into the wall is not what I use in my home - USA.

The attached picture is what I have at my home and that doesn't seem compatible with the power cord picture.



Mine came with a regular US power cord.  The power cord pictured was not delivered to the US.

It's a regular ATX power supply.  Any IEC power cable will work.

did u ever find out how to solo mine with eloipool?

very inspirational and you put things back into perspective.

i've enjoyed reading your posts from the early days and found them highly educational. 

thanks for your help in getting Bitcoin off the ground.

Umm.. sorry to disturb, but:

why was it gold, that you are denominating bitcoin in? Why not silver, or stocks, or RE?

cypherdoc, the creator of this thread sold most of his metal (correct me if I'm wrong) in 2011 swapping it for bitcoins. He has been "propagandizing" that bitcoin would outperform gold and has substantial (in my mind) arguments. Some of them are contained in this article: http://web.archive.org/web/20120403154846/http://bitcoinmedia.com/bitcoin-vs-metals

I think cyperhdoc had mostly gold and less other metals. That probably answers the question?


wow, i'd forgotten about that one. was it a whole year ago?  thanks for linking that.

Umm.. sorry to disturb, but:

From day 1, Bitcoin was designed to mimic the characteristics of gold, the one and only true money, heretofore. 

That, plus the fact I sold 90-95% of my gold in August 2011 in exchange for Bitcoin is why I compare them here.  If I compared Bitcoin to silver, the blowout would be even more extreme.
