First a little story. I am without a mining rig for the weekend. I am in the middle of a trade for a new card but found I really missed that gradual scroll of shares and speed measurement. With my rig feeling empty, I decided it needed something to do.

fakeminer    https://github.com/rethaw/fakeminer
Fakeminer allows you to get the thrill of mining without the increased electricity bill or heat. Amaze your friends with impossible hashing rates.

Code:
Usage: fakeminer.py [options]

Options:

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
      -o HOST, --host=HOST  RPC host (without 'http://')
  -p PORT, RPC Port
  -s --speed             How fast is your card? In Mhash/sec

  • Fakeminer makes no changes to your computer.
  • It does not require a connection to the internet.
  • It does not require a fancy video card, drivers, or SDK's of any kind.

Running it is as simple as:

Code:
python fakeminer.py -o ultrapool.comm -p 1337 -s 500

You are now mining on ultrapool with 500 Mhash/s!

Available on github. This software is offered without a license or warranty of any kind. The biggest risk of fakemining is making your fake video card so fast it floods your console.

Future additions may include: notification of a found block, a fake pool for housing your fake coins, being able to set to 51% of the total hashrate to get a double spend. I look forward to further suggestions.

Why don't you just mine -testnet. You can bust a laptop CPU out on that thing and get 2700x as much in testBTC as you would in crappy regular namecoins.

Shhh, silence!

Testcoins are the new bitcoins, but don't tell anyone until I have hoarded enough of them.

Can this run concurrently with Progress Quest or do the two together create some kind of wormhole of wasted time and swallow your computer.

Aye, at the very least he has won, 'Potentially Useless But Totally Awesome App Dev of The Week'!  

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA
It is being worked on by smart people. -DamienBlack

With great video cards comes great power consumption.

How do you mine these test coins? how to mine with GUIMiner?

So this is the new thing after Bitcoin,namecoin and now test coin?wow looks like bitcoin based currencies are gaining steam now.Since mining namecoins is too complex for due due to registering a domain,but when I do it,it never works for me.I hope test coins can be mined easily atm as in no complex crap in the setup for the mining.

I want in on this,set me up asap for testcoin mining on PC and Mac,thank you.

I have some feature requests:

1. Fake power bill.
2. Fake forum for more time wastage.
3. Fake gf yelling at you to "turn the bloody thing off while we're watching tv, it sounds like a hairdryer". And also  fake not having sex that night.

Bitcoin has a test network for checking software.

Run bitcoin or bitcoind with the -testnet flag to use the testnet (or put testnet=1 in the bitcoin.conf file).

The block chain for testnet is sometimes reset, so enjoy your fake money while you have it.

I will consider this one. It reminds one of being in the womb.

a bajillion fans spinning at 100% reminds you of being in the womb? Are you a doctor who cyborg or a Battlestar galactica cyborg?
