Im paying over 150UKP per month elecrticity extra, and that is wthout turning on the AirCon, which i need to now as my room temp has shot up to a point where i cannot sit in it for more that a few hours.

As the temp outside rises, the aircon will need to work harder so i guess in a week or 2 my earnings will pass the point of being positive.

Unless BTC rises faster than my temp its a loss loss situation.


Even if I have to spend .33$/kWh over here in Germany, your post amused me

How about putting your rigs in different places in the house? You would save money for AC in summer and for heating in winter - especially in Sweden... :-)

joolzg: I live in .se too. With my 7970 I make at least twice as much as electricity costs. That's not unimportant but my driving force is the anarchist part of it, and a currency that will work even when the world economies go down the drain (yeah I'm a pessimist). Call it an investment or insurance.

I must admit the heat is becoming a serious issue tho. Not to mention the noise. But as long as I get more back than I put in I'll keep going.

OK maybe costing too much is a bit over the top, but from when i started to now, im paying more elecy and getting a lots less

Earing .25BTC every ~2.5 days, so thats 12 1/4, which is 3 BTC per month, which is 240UKP at todays exchange rate (looking back at my earnings at the beginning i was getting .25 every 22 hours)

Im paying over 150UKP per month elecrticity extra, and that is wthout turning on the AirCon, which i need to now as my room temp has shot up to a point where i cannot sit in it for more that a few hours.

As the temp outside rises, the aircon will need to work harder so i guess in a week or 2 my earnings will pass the point of being positive.

Unless BTC rises faster than my temp its a loss loss situation.

So ill just sit and wait for the 30GH to come along and start again then.

ps for sale 2 HD6990s (1.6GH open rig available) and 3 HD5970s, Malmo area, sweden.



What if that 3BTC/mo is worth $3000 6 months from now?  Sure you can jump in but difficulty will be way up.

I use Sapphire 7870 XT's with a fan on them you can get their GPU to 1200 which is 525mh/s the card cost maybe $15 more than a normal 7870 but comes with 2 pcie 6pin cables and a few adapters. it uses around 175watts much less than a 7970.
The Sapphire 7870XT has a lower end 7970 gpu on it. I have them in 5 desktops with stock 375watt power supplies. It just seemed more cost effective with these cards, using less power, not requiring power supply upgrades etc

Looks like 18262 was a minor victim of recent problems?

Just pointing it out on the hope it gets put right.

No problem here. Block 18262 seems ok for me.

18261 is only at 70% of my estimated payout - but this may be due to my 'natural' variance (because i have a few small miners running)

That ones a little higher for me (just slightly), so I guess it evens out either way.

I think oroboras got 4000 odd NMC as a reward the other day lol

I did *kinda* - it showed up as a reward, even went into my 'confirmed reward' when the block was finally verified, but obviously was an incorrect listing, as I have a 0.35 payout threshold, and it didn't pay out (I knew it wouldn't, tbh), but it was nice to see Cheesy

Have I said something wonderful or witty? It's unlikely, but if so all donations:

More scoring/reward weirdness:

Current round shares submitted 4797 over past 1 hour 19 minutes, but estimated reward only 0.00000127 BTC

and 18263 showing 25% of normal payout

18263 -- 2013-05-28 16:02:36 -- 2:15:30 -- 21570361 -- 8816 -- 0.00296759 -- 238376 -- 25.11542000 -- 93 confirmations left
...
18259 -- 2013-05-28 11:17:00 -- 2:18:20 -- 21656874 -- 10248 -- 0.01178656 -- 238334 -- 25.41659740 -- 51 confirmations left

Don't blame block 18264 rewards. The block is invalid anyway.
There were issues with "resetting" only some of the scores, but it's no longer important.

Ok, understand 18264 scoring -- but still have the payout question on 18263.

It's invalid for everyone - that's what it means.

as to your reward, it's just luck of the day.

Didn't Slush fixed that problem? Anyway some pool admins are doing upgrade to 0.8.2 that should help with invalid problems. So Slush do it ASAP...

Thank you, I'm still tiring to wrap my head around all this before we make an investment into buying, trading or mining bit coins for profit. The mining part is easy and addicting to my inner geek. I stumbled into Slush's pool a week ago. Glad I did, seems to be a good place for us noobs.
Thanks again, Karl

Invalids are bound to happen occassionally whether there are issues or not; The issue was a slow network connection before that caused us to have a much higher than normal invalid rate. That has been solved but we should still expect a few invalids a week or so.
