I've built a Pi2 with a 12 port USB powered hub.  I've put 8 of the 333mhz cpu's in the hub, and power a pair of 5v fans, and the Pi2.

I put a WD750 pocket drive on the Pi2, for the Bitcoin Cache to "live" !

It's taken a whole day for the format to complete on the drive.

I'm using the ethernet 10/100 port, wireless while strong, is hokey... imho

I think I'll be ready to startup BitCoin and pointing the cache at the HD.  Let's see how long it takes to catch up the cache!

Are you sitting up solo mining or what are you needing the HD for? I'm unsure if you were doing it to be a node, or setting up solo mine from scratch.

Sounds like intresting project as I like those old stick miners due to memories.  I agree with person above would love to see pick of the 8 block erupters.

Just imagine about 3 years ago these ASIC sticks were still the "fastest"... now they are obsoleted and the only function they have is to convert electricity into heat.

I still keeping 2 of these 333MHz sticks. They are quite well build and I am keeping them for future museum!

They are fun for lotto mining is what I use compacs for.  I remember the Asic Block Erupters well though I had a farm of 50-80 depending on timeframe.   I sold them all long ago.  I did not keep any an momentos one day I would not mind buying a set of all colors.... but they still bring enough I cant bring myself to pay it for a momento.
