So we get a huge jump in speed and we are hit with 3 stales in one day... Something seems off with this. Anybody have any idea?

Like everyone here says, BitMinter is by far the easiest pool to use!  Great for noobies and hobbyist miners and of course the serious miner.
Anyway is it worth investing in ModMiner Quad FPGA?
I have pre-ordered a single BFL ASIC. (Fingers crossed for that one)

Second Question about ModMiner QUAD, the site says:
Quote
Draws from the 12V supply with 5A fuse at the Molex connector


Do I have to hook it up to my PC PSU or can I buy an adapter like the one on ZTEC

Thanks.

In my opinion its a gamble. over 1000$ for 800mhash.(modminer)
Sure it uses little power (40w) but how long will you  have to run it to pay for it...

800hash gets u about 0,08btc pr day. thats about 7,2dollars pr day in profit (disregarding power bill). it would take you over 3months to pay it down.
And thats not counting in the difficulty changes. If BFL suddenly desides that they will start shipping the difficulty would go trough the roof. And you would most likely never break even.

Also as of other "e-currency" those fpga and asics will not work mining anything else (so far at least).

With a graphics card at least you can flee over to litecoin mining if the bitcoin marked becomes flooded with cheap XXX GH/Hash asics... since litecoin doesnt support asics (supposedly never will but they said that about gpu too...).
Just hoping that bitminter will integrate support for mining litecoins. I really like bitminter and with the java app ur able to mine within minutes from setting up the computer.
Ive had a lot more trouble with my litecoin riggs...(install cgminer, config script, download amd drivers, including app dev kit and so on...).

Just put an order in for an extra two 7970 cards (will cost 900 dollars, those give me 1100Mhash bitcoin or 1000Khash litecoin and using about 500W(measured at plug), either way ill be making money, and if it e-marked goes bust i will just sell them, or have a wiched gaming rig=P. Since theyr not som dum brick design to do ONE single task.

This is was I thought, I know it's a risk this late in the game.
But it would cost over a $1000 to buy a new computer in which I could upgrade to high end GPU cards (And buy them).  Cheap dell's are NOT easy to or meant to be upgraded :-(

The smart option, buy a new computer with great ATI cards, like you said I would have a great game rig or I could always sell the cards on.
Risk, Risk, Risk, there is always risk.

Thanks for your advise mate!

I've just used the old flexible friend and bought myself a new PC  Cry
The sticker on my Dell Inspiron 530 says it was built in 2008, so I needed to upgrade anyway (I keep telling myself this over and over)

So a new Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Processor i7-3770K (3.5GHz) 8MB Cache
8GB RAM
2x 3GB AMD RADEON™ HD7970
And so on...

Hopefully I'll get at least 1GH/s.....

NOTE:
Don't have a flexible friend with credit beside you, when you've been drinking

I have 2 7970's and get between 1.2 and 1.3, so you're good. I'm getting a new case, the gorgeous Azza 9000, and may be adding a third. We shall wait and see.


::EDIT::

OR I may just wait I little longer for this -_- They need to stop teasing me!!

Yes, there are several Avalon ASICs mining in the pool.

I am currently working on BFL SC support for BitMinter client.

Great. Smiley

You'll get my support if BFL ever ships.

Got a small mining farm running here at work roughly 16hrs a day - combinations of 6750's, 6770's & a few GTX 675's - around the 10-15 machine mark depending on who is in the office, wish there were more bank holidays. Clocking anything between 800Mh/s and 1.5Gh/s depending on how many machines i have up at once. Bit of a plate spinner what with people logging out of my admin acc when they get in etc but worth it, have a few scripts running to avoid a few hassles

Waiting on my Single SC to land. Glad that Bitminter is supporting ASIC

Hello everyone. I am a complete noob and only know basics about mining.

I am at work. The only way I can get my computer to mine ANYTHING is through this Bitminter Java App with firewall friendly option enabled.

I can't EVER get another mining application to work when I specify port 80 (much less any other port).

Can someone tell me how I can get this to work without using the applet (but still getting the "firewall friendly" option so it will work at my office)?

Also, is there a Litecoin equivelant to this? The office firewall blocks all webminers and guiminers for litecoin and their pools as well.

EDIT: Even after tethering my machine at the office through my iPhone I still cannot mine anything. The only option that works is BTC mining through the Bitminter applet. Anyone have an idea as to what could be happening?

Alright - I am complete BitNoob - and I have some questions - So I got the bitminter client running on 1 desktop, 2 laptops all logged into my account - making mHash stuff.  My desktop with its kickass GPU is now cranking out 360Mhps - which I suppose is  .0269 bitcoins per day - which at current exchange rates is $3.7 - so no i cant retire yet.  I know the ASICs are getting ready to drop like the beat in a harlem shake video and mess up everything this side of Cypress (yeah poor saps should have invested in bitcoins sooner).  So far so good so whats the question newb?  AH.

I set up a wallet a bitcoin wallet and it moved the address it gave me (after i did the encrpt thingy) and set it up in bitminer account setting so it will push bitcoins to my wallet.
 
1) Where do i send namecoins? 

2) How do I get the money converted from bitcoins to us dollars?  What web brokerage does that to like paypal or something?

3) Will the ASICs  gigahashing the interwebs to hell and gone be offset by the current EU meltdown and the increase in the value of bitcoins in general?  (i know one is apples and one is oranges (as it gets harder to mine each bitcoin they should become worth more and more as demand increases and people get scared of banks)

The third questions is of course opinion based - but you cats know and are the subject matter experts - i am just a guy with 1 desktop and 2 laptops and an eye on a jalepeno ASIC thing for 129 bux - which should pay off in 14 days - when they ship - and when i can get like 6 bucks from these magic internet coins into my hand/paypal/ something with a $ beside it for proof of concept.

WHich for all you not so business majors out there is a kickass ROI even if it were 10x longer!


Thanks in advance.  Sorry for the alacrity and the freewritteness of this post.

First the main reason I'm here, MSI Afterburner has released beta 3.0 which add a plethora of features and fixes. The best of which is a fix for the screen tearing cause by using Afterburner with AMD drivers, finally.


Next, the easiest, quickest, and cheapest way to get you BTC converted to your curenct of choice is through Bitpay.com it IS the paypal of bitcoins.

DrHaribo, have you noticed the upswing in namecoins yet? Over at BTC-E the selling for .008-.0088 BTC, around $1.17 each namecoin. That's pretty impressive, more importantly, profitable.

1) Where do i send namecoins? 

You can get a wallet to run on your computer from http://dot-bit.org or you can send directly to an exchange, for example https://btc-e.com/ https://exchange.bitparking.com/main https://vircurex.com/

3) Will the ASICs  gigahashing the interwebs to hell and gone be offset by the current EU meltdown and the increase in the value of bitcoins in general?

Bitcoin has increased in value crazy fast lately. It's hard to predict what will happen tomorrow. Don't hold more coins than you can afford to lose.

My take on it long term: increased bitcoin minting rates is temporary until difficulty catches up. I also don't think it will make a noticable change in the amount of daily traded bitcoins. The failure of greedy banksters and corrupt and/or incompetent politicians is permanent. It really comes down to this: would you rather trust that 1+1=2 or would you trust a shifty guy with a sleazy grin who promises not so steal/tax/devalue your money while you sleep?

DrHaribo, have you noticed the upswing in namecoins yet? Over at BTC-E the selling for .008-.0088 BTC, around $1.17 each namecoin. That's pretty impressive, more importantly, profitable.

Yep, I wrote about that here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=166213.0

The namecoin price already started to drop since then. But I think getting more than 1 USD per Namecoin is very good.

Any hs_err_pid files left on the desktop? That happens when the graphics drivers crash.
