Hi, I am Bart and new to this forum. Last week I started out with two rigs on deepbit.net. In total I just got my 1st BTC Smiley. Reading on this forum, I saw a webpage which showed who finished the last blocks. On that I saw slush and deepbit most. First I thought because they have to most power (workers), but on another thread I read that workers do not combine their calculations on the same block. I was thinking that solo mining was interesting, if you have the most Mhash/s power combined by more rigs, on your own bitcoind. But now I read that those rigs are not working on the same blocks. Even further, if you have 4 GPU's, all four miners on that rig are even not working on that same block. Is that correct?

Does that imply that solo mining is only interesting if your hardware has very high power per miner ? So that 2x a HD5850 ~350Mhash/s less interesting for solomining that 1x a HD5970 doing ~700Mhash/s?

Or do I have this wrong ?

Would be great to post in the correct threads instead of this newbies section.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HD5850 mining at 340 Mhash/sec. What a waste of energy... but what to do without an ASIC ?

Hi, I'm the BossChair.  I named myself after the one slightly fancier chair on the BitCoin show, because that's the chair the host gets to sit in.  I'm new to bitcoins and haven't really jumped in with both feet yet, but am interested in taking part in the discussion.

Welcome, xxxcoin!  I guess we joined at the same time.  Your coins sound dirty.

It's good to be here!  I mine on deepbit and bitclockers, and I am totally satisfied with the setup and the payout.  I am affiliated with a company that will do web and mobile development (HTML, JQuery, PHP, MySql, Android, etc) and accept payment in bitcoin:  https://plumflowersoftware.com

Hello, this is my first time here and wanted to figure out how to set up a worker in a pooled bitcoin mining community.


Basically you install OpenCL and get it working, then point it at your pool with login info.  If you give some details about what hardware, OS, and mining software you're using I'll be happy to help you try to get it working.  If you already figured all that out (it took me a very long night a few months ago, and I feel like I'm pretty good with Linux and tech things), then kudos and have fun!

Yours,
Lou Minati Elite

Hey everybody,

So you can probably tell I'm new here  Cheesy. My name is Jake Antifaev, and I'm an entrepreneur. I recently heard about Bitcoin, and was able to raffle up 10 coins. I plan on creating a gambling network, which will have multiple casino/custom games.

Hopefully I fit in, and I could use some advice for the network.

Jake

I'm a computer science grad student. My interests are assembly (x86), C/C++, GNU/Linux, CPU architecture, hobbyist OS development, OpenGL, game development, democoding, electronics and retro gaming.

I have now spent several hours trying to compile bitcoin, still without it working. This makes me quite sad. In one of my cryptography classes several years ago I was introduced to the concept of "digital cash" (primarily the mathematics thereof), but I will admit that I didn't know it was actually implemented like this prior to seeing the recent Slashdot article. So I thought I would just try it for myself -- too bad I'm spending so much time just trying to compile the thing.

Hey guys I had a few questions about bitcoins and thought I'd come here.  Bitcoins are interesting yet confusing, although I'm sure I'll figure things out over time, I just need to find the right place to ask a few questions :p

I know from IRC there's a handful of us hanging out from the left coast of the United States.
Been a geek since I was 9 - when my dad brought home a VIC-20 (then C64, IBM 8088 - yeah 8088, not 80286 or 386) and I learned Commodore BASIC by typing in programs from the back of magazines, breaking them, seeing what I could do differently.
At this stage in the game, I've not run or used any Microsoft OS willingly since 1996, though I'm forced to keep abreast of developments in order to support my Windows-using clients
My 1st taste of Linux was from a LinuxMall "6 Pack" that included S.u.S.E. gmbh Linux (yep that is what it was called), RedHat 4.1, Caldera Linux, Debian (potato?) and several other distros that have long disappeared.

My current computer set up is FreeBSD 8.2  (GNU Zealots can suck it. MIT license all the way).
Despite the geekness, I'm not a strong programmer (web languages, PHP [and PHP-MySQL interaction], Perl),but I know enough to be a danger to myself but not usually to others. 
I'm currently teaching myself python (and curses) to make a console-based interface to bitcoind (for non-GNOME/KDE/[name your GUI here] users and possible headless--but easy access?)

Anyway, I'm one to try the "latest and greatest and most obscure" and also one to try and break it where applicable.
With bitcoin though, I'm relatively new to the scene. But its idea and the ideals speak to my inner anarchistic anti-statist  libertarian (go ahead, try and  label me - I'm the aforementioned in some regards, conservative in others).
I will more often than not play "devil's advocate" just for the hell of it and in doing so, I may or may not be expressing my true beliefs (something that drives my girlfriend crazy)

Okay, I  tried to keep it somewhat coherent, linear and short. I have problems with that, obviously (but so do other geeks, I've come to notice)

There's a lot to be said for forcing newbies to say _something_ in order to be able to post Wink Results in the randomest of random thoughts.
