Just a heads-up to all VPS-mining folks: ChunkHost is offering 2x deposits for today only if you deposit using Bitcoin! Plans are a flat $9 a month with an optional upgrade fee. The most basic plan offers 1GB RAM, 30GB SSD storage, 2 CPU cores, and 2TB Transfer/month. If you are considering a DigitalOcean VPS but don't have a Paypal account, you can use this instead!

Sign up here!

Note: if you wish to mine Protoshares, beware of the 1GB memory limitation. I would suggest limiting your nonce range to reduce memory usage.
Also, when compiling your clients it might be best to make a swap file, just in case: instructions

Instructions
1. Fund your account. It is recommmended to fund it with more so that you can run more miners concurrently. 0.05 BTC should be fine, and gives you over $110 of credit.
2. Set up the chunk. Use Ubuntu 12.04 or 13.10 for the OS.  The root password will be emailed to you.
3. SSH into the chunk using either putty (Windows) or ssh (linux). Run the following:
Code:
# apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade.
# sudo apt-get install make automake git build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev
This will provide the necessary tools for CPU miner building.
4. Compile CPU miners as usual. Warning: flag "-O3" or flat "-march=native" seems to cause SIGILL to be thrown.

Benchmark results:
Quark = 150 KH/s using https://github.com/uncle-bob/quarkcoin-cpuminer
Yacoin = 25 Hash/s using mikealh yacoin cpuminer at http://yacointalk.com/index.php?topic=264.0
scrypt = 9.5 KH/s using pooler cpuminer
SHA-256 = 5.2 MH/s using pooler cpuminer

Bump! This promotion is still on. With the doubling of deposits they are effectively giving your BTC a value of $1,085.27*2=$2,170 each!

OP is updated with instructions to install miners.

Just noticed that they have a new promotion - there is a bonus of 10% if you deposit over $108 (12 months)! So for just 0.1 BTC you get (at 1,088.50/BTC) $253 of credit - 28 months worth of server time! (That's 4.2 MH/s of Quark for 1 month)

Seems that the double credit for BTC is gone... however there is still the 5% discount for BTC as well as an added 10% credit for deposits over $108. If anyone wants VPS mining but doesn't have PayPal account, this is a great alternative, as well as allowing you to take advantage of rise in BTC price.
