It seems because of difficulty is going up and in the same time now bitcoin price is going down AntMiner S1 will be worthless to run sooner rather then later...
Only good possibility is in cold winter to overclock them if your electricity is "free"... you can use them as electrical heater in the same time...  Roll Eyes

You can upgrade your S1 to be just as fast and same efficiency as the S3 for .46 btc.

From their home page:

The sale of S1 Upgrade Kit is 0.46 BTC each including international shipping, which starts on September 20th or earlier.

Now do your math...The next ~25% diff. increase in a few days plus 2 more until you get your kit (assuming on time delivery 9/20). So diff. at about 29,000,000,000
Daily BTC before expenses around 0.0076 then, after power cost (10c Kwh) thats $2.98/day...for about 2 weeks then next diff. increase.

You are paying about $250 (using today's low exchange rate) to mine slightly more than double than you get with an over clocked
S1 now. OK, some power savings but not huge. So the question is how much did you pay for the S1? If you got it for next to nothing
this upgrade can be a good deal. If you bought if for over $250 like a month ago you are now in for $500 and will likely only break even (if at all)
after 6 months or more.  

If BTC goes over $650 again things look a lot better. Over $1,000 and hurrah!

I realize the economics behind it all i was just saying.  I guess i forget sometimes i dont pay for power. Wink I use solar / power and cooling from my server room at work.

I forgot about this option, because I did not like it. Not taking in mind that it will ship in 20/9 maybe, I`m located in eastern Europa and fastest I something receive from China is 3weeks, sometimes even almost 2 mount with economy shipping.
But, what there is in package, how I understand I can buy russbery pi those boards to run and not disassemble S1. And mine idea what I concern about is that S3 has shell what directs air. S1 does not, its huge difference in my mind.

New record hashing power at Slush's?

Today the hash power is 5785484.687 but I have seen 58+... is this record territory?

Just wondering if the new SP30's coming online might be an explanation.

If you search back in this thread, you can find out for yourself. But iirc it is because namecoin is not supported by the devs anymore.

Speaking of merged mining, I have been balancing between Slush and Ghash. Now I have like 200 Devcoins. What the heck can you do with Devcoins?

Sell them, invest them, or just keep them there, until you don't have more.

Where did everybody go? A server must have went down. Nobody leaves when we are doing good.

I switched my hash power over to BTCGuild for a few days....just wanna see what my avg. is over there with the recent diff. rises so I can compare to Slush.
Would I have switched today if not yesterday??Hmmm, that is hard to answer but most likely yes as I am just wanting to look at real figures. I remember last time I switched over...it did not take but a couple days before I was back with Slush.  Grin

I know what you mean. But in times when I want to point my miners somewhere where I am relatively sure I will make something I use Ghash.io. Steady crumbs... Grin
