about $20 a day after electricity, usually around 5000g/hash, but i can get up to 6,500.  i guess that qualifies as 'medium'. 

but there needs to be another category.   when i sold everquest items, i had a few people that bought a couple grand worth, a whole bunch of ppl that bought a few hundred, one person that bought around $10,000 worth of goods, and another that spent about $30,000 (and the lingo for that is "super-whale" and "whale").     i would say someone that's around 15ghash or so would be a "big" miner, but it needs a "huge" or "i use more electricity than a small village" category

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

I voted #3. I got all my money in ASICs, and I'm hoping to have > 200GH/s before too long.

My early BTC endeavors were almost completely the fourth option, buying me small toys like SSDs or new monitors. Now all my BTC gets reinvested back into buying more hardware.

currently sitting on a whopping 300 mhash making around .12 btc a day. it's not much, i know. i want to get into ASICs (own a few shares of ASICMINER already!) and eventually rig em to solar/wind/whatever for free electricity and live off the mining revenue. finally free me up from the rat race.

That would be me...about 150 MH/s, mostly from a Radeon 7750, with a little bit contributed from a couple of GeForce 9500GTs and a GeForce 210 I already had.  I have a couple of Jalapeños on preorder, though, and would like to use the proceeds to build up to something bigger, just as the Jalapeños and the Radeon were purchased with proceeds from finding a block with CPU mining on my VPS a while back.

dunno, not many with 10GH+.  the problem is there needs to be another category above medium.

someone mining at 9gh/s isn't "small".  that'd put them in the top 20 miners at a pool doing 2thash atm.

more like tiny <1ghash
small <3ghash
medium <10ghash
big <50ghash
squandering enough electricity to light up small hamlet >50ghash

I'm a tiny miner, averaging a little under 200MH/s on a 5770 I already had. Kinda wish I'd looked into mining 6 months ago, but oh well.

new miner, small running 2 5850's getting about 750 mhash. Want to grow but I want to see how much just running these 2 cards really affects electricity, just started officially yesterday!

I think that's all of us, truth be told.

10gh seems like a nice number to be hitting sometime soon -

Mining with 7 5870s at 400Mhash each for a total of 2.8Ghash.

Average hashrate in last 10 rounds: 2805 Mhash/s

Been doing this for awhile but for a long time I wasn't at full capacity due to broken fans and things which had to be fixed. General cooling issues for instance (I have 2 cards running outside now). Now that the difficulty is high I am at full capacity since I had the motivation to fix the issues. I wonder how many others have done the same. I could probably overclock a bit but then stability becomes an issue...

We used to have 8 cards but last summer the kill scripts weren't so great so one melted. Cheesy Also have broken 2 A/Cs along the way...

So does that make us small? I want to be a medium sized miner!! Wink

Got into mining late in the GPU game and got very excited about it. Spent a decent amount on FPGAs and now I can't get my mind off of bitcoin. Take all my money ASIC pre-orders  Grin

New Scale:
  • Very Big: >=10% of network hash rate
  • Big: >=1% of network hash rate
  • Medium: >=1/1000 of the network hash rate
  • Small: >=1/10,000 of the network hash rate
  • Tiny: >= 1/100,000 of the network hash rate
  • Very Tiny >=1/1,000,000 of the network hash rate
  • Null: < 1/1,000,000 of the network hash rate

At the current network hash rate of 21.3 TH/s, that corresponds to:
  • Very big: over 2.13TH/s
  • Big: over 213GH/s
  • Medium: over 21.3GH/s
  • Small: over 2.13GH/s
  • Tiny: over 213MH/s
  • Very Tiny: over 21.3MH/s
Edit:
Mining with 7 5870s at 400Mhash each for a total of 2.8Ghash.
...

So does that make us small? I want to be a medium sized miner!! Wink
yes. Wink
