Mining about one month.
Basically need to share experiences with mining software (bugs etc...) and this place looks like a good place for that...

'loes!

4th year (in Scotland we do 4 years for an honours degree if '4th' seems odd to you Tongue) computing science student here.

Heard about and started getting interested in bitcoin a few weeks ago. Always interested in internet culture and it's 'autonomy' from the outside world - something bitcoin seems to be able to aid. But it seems bitcoin might be able to spread  into the outside world too, in wider use - that'd be really interesting. I guess the challenge is to come up with ways to allow people who aren't computer orientated to use bitcoin - possibly with hardware devices (like cards or something.) Looking forward to reading the economics and 'politics and society' sections - and maybe posting too if i'm not too lazy Tongue.

Also interested in developing bitcoin based services / apps - although the low level cryptography stuff is way over my head at the moment. I recently made an android 'remote control' app for the bitcoin running in daemon mode, which I guess I'd be interested in posting about in the 'project development section' when I'm not a newbie. [ https://market.android.com/details?id=Happy0.BitCoinClient&feature=search_result ]. Wonder what else I could make that might be useful...

Been idling in the bitcoin-dev and bitcoin IRC channels - I'm really impressed how busy, vibrant and interesting they are. Many channels I sit in go for days without any discussion at all.

l8rz! Tongue

Hi, I'm a speculator. I ate my hat last month in the crash - still hanging on though.  Grin Despite what a lot of people think, though, we do care about bitcoin as a currency itself - I play the game mostly to increase the number of coins I have, given I never had the equipment to even think about mining.

Hi,

my name is Christian from Munich, Germany. I am interested in that Bitcoin thing from a technological perspective mainly.

Currently I find the official Bitcoin client lacking (very unintuitive user interface, long setup time and initial download).

Also I am very interested in the applied crypto algorithms in this project. Would be interested in working on a GPU accelerated vanity bitcoin address generator, for a start.

Hi,

My name is Boris Rarden, I'm the maker of Online-TipJar.com site, which is a bitcoin-based donation/tipping service, centered around free software. Recently, my site got linked by FSF!

I'm also a supporter of the Objectivism philosophy, which promotes the gold standard, and hence bitcoin.

I believe that the next thing for bitcoin is a community of people that can provide the basic necessities directly for bitcoin (without conversion), such as food and rent.

Okay, post number 3.

I'm running an ATI Radeon HD 5870 on a brand new MacPro, and only getting around 2.0 MHashes/Sec using DiabloMiner.  The Hardware page says I should get twice that.

I tried using POCLBM-MOD, and it was even slower.

I tried using the -v switch on POCLBM, and it failed.

Is there some Mac driver issue that prevents me from using Vectors on my 5870 on a Mac?

Hi there,

I'm an archaeologist from the UK and am extremely interested in bitcoins.  I am currently looking into whether it is a good investment, it's always fun to gamble on investment returns!

2MH/s out of a 5870 you should be getting a whole lot more than that, more like 350MH/s are you sure you havent picked the cpu as your device rather than the card? id tell you the line but im not familiar with macs or diablominer

Hey guys, I have a quick question. I started mining a little less than a month ago with my 6950 and sadly when I first started I didn't run it nearly as much as I should have. The calculator told me I could make around 60 bucks a week and now it's down to 20. My main card is a 6950 however I have an old GTS 450 I do not use anymore sitting around. Would it be worth it to throw this into my computer to try and get some extra mh/s and bitcoins or is it not worth it for power/heat vs bitcoin payoff? Thanks.

Not worth the extra 45-50Mh/s verse the extra power usage, heat and very potential headache of getting both Nividia and Ati drivers to play along nicely.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

I generally refer people to this site, http://bitminer.info/ which gives some pretty acceptable, if not slightly pessimistic numbers on power usage vs profit, and gives dollar per day, and payoff of investment times. Looking at it we can see that a GTS 450

CardGTS450   MH/s 45   BTC Per day ฿0.03   Current Value $0.46   Watts used106   Profit after cost at .15c per Kilowatt hour. $0.08    GPU Cost$124.69    Days it would take to pay off the card1558.62

So if you never had to pay for power, it would make $0.46 per day, or $14 per month. So you tell me if its worth it for you? Personally I wouldn't bother, but I'm doing this more professionally than as a hobby, so I'm looking for the best MH/J with only some consideration for cost of GPU.
