I think this calculator might be off on it's math.  If you put in 1.15 as the growth rate, you get to the monthly increase in difficulty in 2 increases, but this is 28*.85 days, right?  There should have been a third difficulty increase for the last part of the first month.

Difficulty Start => 1690895.8030524
Growth => 1.15

2236209 = 1.15 * 1.15 * 1690895.8030524, but this is only 23.8 days.  Is my math off?

1   28.62   400.68   2236209.69954
2   20.37   285.18   3400995.42678
3   14.23   199.22   4497816.45192
4   10.13   141.82   6840616.59631
5   7.07   98.98   9046715.44863
6   5.04   70.56   13758923.3579
7   3.52   49.28   18196176.1409
8   2.5   35   27674109.3882
9   1.75   24.5   36599009.6659
10   1.24   17.36   55662518.8257
11   0.87   12.18   73613681.147
12   0.62   8.68   111957207.314

Newcomers need to see this calculator before they get into bitcoin mining for profit!
Thanks for a closer, more realistic outcome to mining!

Amazing how many people sign up JUST to tell others NOT to mine. Get a life.

Yup, he explicitly states that he calculates difficulty changes every 14 days and not depending on the hashrate. So it's even a bit worse than predicted, although I'm still not convinced that difficulty will increase constantly. It's more like a curve that gets shallower and steeper every now and then.

Amazing how many people are on here just to troll..

Did I ever suggest that newcomers shouldn't mine?
Oh, that's right, I didn't.

Oh really?? What were you suggesting then? You're full of it. If you're suggesting that you weren't trying to put newcomers off then what exactly were you suggesting? And how am I trolling? As I said earlier, get a life.

I was suggesting exactly what I said, that newcomers should check out this more realistic calculator before they get into bitcoin mining for profit.
You're trolling my post so it seems you need to get a life at a much more significant rate than I do

So why are you bolding "for profit". I am still mining and making quite a LOT of profit thankyou. YOU are the troll. Do some proper research before making such a "bold" statement. Idiot.

I'm guessing you've already paid off the cost of your hardware. If you've done that, or you're not buying hardware specifically for mining, it should work out to be profitable for users with decent ATI cards.

Yes I've paid off the hardware from mining quite a while ago and in the very near future my energy costs will also be zero (see other thread on free UK solar panels). It's very profitable for me. I also hold quite a few bitcoins too and will speculate with those at a later date.

After playing around with this calc, it seems that 6 months from now, everyone under 1 ghash will have to call it quits.

It would be nice to be able to adjust the growth factor for each consequent month. This way I can make most accurate calculations.
