Hello, all!

I think I looked into BitCoin about a year ago, but never quite grasped the concept, so it didn't last long. About January I looked at it again (I think they were talking about it on TWiT and I got interested again) and have been mining at 3-9MH/s on Slush's pool, trying things out and researching building a real rig.

I finally signed up because I've developed a Windows 7/Vista Desktop gadget for monitoring miners on Slush's pool that I'd like to share with the community. I've offered it to Slush, and now I'm just tweaking a bit more here and there. So I figured I'd better hurry up and start trying to get my 5 posts out of the way Smiley

See you around!

P.S. Yes, I know Windows 8 is coming, reducing the usefulness of a desktop gadget. That is, the gadget still works, but the desktop isn't visible a lot of the time. I've downloaded VS, so maybe sometime I'll take a look at it and see what it would take to make a WinRT app with a live tile displaying similar info.

Dear James, you are very welcome here! Also I am new here, signed up yesterday. I allready have about 9 posts, but I really don´t care about the newbie - hell, hehehe. Thanks very much for your good intention. By the way: I still use XP and I never will install any new Windows on any of my PCs. The next upgrade will be some linux (most probably CentOS on the newer machines, on the older ones XP still will do a good job). I don´t know how others here think about this, but I guess windows8 will not be any topic anymore for many.
Fair enough Smiley Though since it's all just JS and HTML, it wouldn't take too much to modify it to run it in any HTML-displaying environment. I don't know if there's any "gadget"-type interface in Gnome or KDE, but if there is, I'm sure it could be adapted easily enough. I just wrote this to stick on, for instance, a work machine to make sure everything is running as it should in my absence...and those usually are Windows machines, still.

Thanks for the welcome though! I haven't heard from Slush, so I'll probably just host it myself on mediafire or something in the next few days and link to it once I'm in the right forum.

Oh, one more thing: I finally getting comfortable enough with my understanding of the Bitcoin system to start considering building a "real" mining rig, so I started looking at the logistics.

I found a calculator which seems to be quite all-encompassing at https://bitclockers.com/calc .

But unfortunately, I've come away a bit discouraged.

I wasn't aware of the impending mining "award" drop, though I've since read up on it on the wiki. I was going to start off buying a single 7970 and dropping it into a repurposed box that would do the job nicely. However, with the costs of energy ($.09/kwh, it looks like, though I still need to verify it with my service), it looks like I'd be barely breaking even once the reward drops. Is that an experience that's not unusual, or am I missing something? The 7970 is listed there at 350 watts and 600 Mh/s (though most people on here are reporting around 700Mh/s with the 7970, and so is the number I've been using). Is 350 watts correct for that card?

Based on that particular page, it seems I'd be better off (though less scalable for growth) if I got two 6950s instead, since I'd end up with a slightly better hash rate and slightly lower power usage, at around the same cost of entry. But even still, I'd be looking at under 5 dollars a week of profit, and take 2 1/2 years to "break even". It seems odd that there doesn't seem to be a card out there that can give any better return than that.

Can anyone shed a bit of brief guidence on this subject?

Thanks!

Hi I'm Fred, been mining for about 3 weeks now, got $30 =D
I'm looking to expand the bitcoin market in my area by providing simple mining rigs, along with products and services purchasable with the generated btc.
My gf and I are currently buying and selling stuff on the facebook and the world wide superhighway, for to make money!
I'm currently setting up a few pc's to get a feel for what I'm doing before investing more money I don't have!
Thank you guys for the forum!

My hobby rig's slowly starting to become interesting!

1 rig with two 6990 video cards
1 rig with two 5970 cards and two 5850's (dedicated miner)
1 Old sempron system that i'm planning on filling with another four 5850's

Got 10 BFL singles on the way, hopefully wont be too many months before these arrive so I can sell off a couple GPU's and cut down on power costs

Hi everybody ,I'm a computer Scientist, I have a datacenter in Turkey and just started mining after missing the summer 2011 train it was hard to start mining because I knew I missed alot of the wind, then I told to myself what the heck I'll just go with it, currently mining with about 4.5 GH/s , my machines are 2 card bare setups with the cheapest sempron 1g ram 8gb memory stick and linuxcoin, If this month goes fine I may increase it to 10-20 Gh/s but who knows Smiley

Whitelist would be appreciated Smiley

I haven't checked on my TradeHill account in months. Just needed to make a transaction and found out the site has gone. No idea who to email about getting my BTC out of my account. Hopefully I can PM Jared now and maybe get my coin back Sad

BitInstant was also involved with them, helping process transactions and such, if Jared is not timely in his response. And yes you should be able to pm.

Hello everyone
     I think it is time for me to jump on the Bitcoin train.  I have been an avid overclocker and now going to use my resources to contruct a mining rig.  I definitely encourage comments and suggestions about how to fund starting projects.   For the big picture, I'm looking for secondary supplemental income.
