Ethereum doesn't use the same format. The addresses are in hexadecimal and would need to be converted to ASCII to see any words.
I guess there a few words you can spell with hex: cafe, babe, abba. There must be others. 0xDEADBEEF (google this!) Excellent point. If you get creative with some numbers, they can be used in place of letters as well.

A few (!) pages back I mentioned the discrepancies with the time estimation for 50% 75% etc This is from my system right now: Searching for pattern: "1EXAmoney" Reward: 0.008000 Value: 0.000001 BTC/MkeyHr Difficulty: 50656515217834 [38.97 Mkey/s][total 33002830692352][Prob 47.9%][50% in 15.0h] using OclVanityMiner64.exe  to my way of thinking, half of 50 should be 25...

An Ethereum Vanity Wallet for a PGP/GPG fingerprint would actually be kind of cool eg 0xC89D8F52

Can the generated vanity address be used straight away? As long as we hold the private key,i believe it can be loaded into any btc wallet client?

Yes but be careful because if you are using a deterministic wallet, those vanity keys will not be covered by your mnemonic or seed. This means that if you lost your wallet and subsequently recovered it with only the mnemonic or seed, those coins stored in vanity addresses would not be recovered. That being said, they should be saved in normal backups of the wallet. What wallet are you planning to use?

The percentage is not based on a linear algorithm. The key's that you are processing are generated based on randomness. So the progress indicator is following some statistical algorithms that involve normal distribution, 'bellcurves', probability etc. In short; this indicator shows the chance that you would have found a hit by now.

So if I got this right: If person A wants me to search for a vanity address for him, but I would also like to search for vanity addresses for n other people simultaneously, the result that I find, with which person A can generate his desired vanity address, is only usable to person A if he has a certain piece of information from all these n other people?
I don't think you have it right. Where did you read this?

Is the Difficulty: 50656515217834 a ball park figure? I've had instances in the past where my searches (for my own Private Keys) have gone beyond 100% which I mentioned here and got tuttutted that it wouldn't happen... I also rarely find anything until I'm in the 90% to 100% bracket which is most irritating... ...and no, when I say for my own private keys, I'm not talking about putting a part public key of my own in and searching based on that...

Exactly. The "percentage left" is cut in half every x minutes, where x is the time it shows you for 50% when you start it.

I've spent the last three hours being badgered by somebody because KeyBase.Io won't read my message to them... (not to mention the previous 24 hours) ... and it's nearly midnight... Exactly. The "percentage left" is cut in half every x minutes, where x is the time it shows you for 50% when you start it.
This isn't making sence. Are you saying IF a job were to take Five hundred hours to reach 50% it would take a further  Five Hundred hours to reach 75%
 Two Hundred and Fifty hours to reach 75%
 D  Three Apples
If the answer is a further Five Hundred hours to reach 75%, (and half of 25 = 12.5% therefore 75% + 12.5% = 87.5%), would it be about (I said about people) a further two hundred hours to reach the next bench mark 80%? (not withstanding the 87.5% half of half of half of 100%)?

Bonkers!I suppose there's no point asking why it doesn't just make it a little more linear instead of exponential?

A chance to find something simply isn't lineair, as it will never reach 100% chance. The chance always stays the same: if it's 500 hours for 50% chance, it's exactly the same chance after you've run it after a week. That's why you can just as well restart the the search at any moment.

Agree, i love vanity addresses so i studied on my own a lot. Because of that, i know you can restart your generation process how many times u want, and still have same chance to find address.
