is the diff really going up that fast/ it seam like the tech wont pay for its self.
Yes, diff has been going up 20%-35% every 10-12 days for the past few months. And it will likely continue to do so for a while.

This is why a growing number of people are beginning to realize (or at least suspect) that any hardware bought now may not actually pay for itself. Or, at least, not any time soon. The less expensive hardware in terms of $/GH is all pre-order, months away; and the on-hand stuff (ASICMiner blades, sticks, ebay) is very expensive.

Either way it is a big gamble. There may be better choices for investing your $ than in mining hardware right now. If you aren't in the game already, this may not be the best time to start.

is the diff really going up that fast/ it seam like the tech wont pay for its self.

please comment

 maybe maybe not.  hard to tell since the 30% jumps are coming fast and heavy it is scary to think beyond 30-60 days.

 but 30% jumps don't inspire confidence in the tech paying off.

 30% jumps will not be forever they will level off  question is when.  

EPOCH has a point about getting into mining vs other btc moves..  

If you are really new.  I suggest 2 moves  get some coins and hold them.  Say 2-5 coins

   and get a few sticks a hub and a fan mine on bitminter.   Buy 6 sticks from a seller like this


http://www.ebay.com/itm/PREORDER-USB-ASIC-MINER-Block-Erupter-333MH-Bitcoin-BTC-Mining-/261274881085?pt=CPUs&hash=item3cd5324c3d

 not me I am holding my sticks and mining.

get a hub like this
http://www.amazon.com/ViewHD-Professional-Premium-Quality-Chipset/dp/B00B595GK4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1378319795&sr=8-1&keywords=viewhd+usb+hub


get a fan like this


http://www.amazon.com/ARCTIC-USB-Powered-Portable-Cooling-Solution/dp/B003XN24GY/ref=pd_bxgy_pc_img_z

  you are at 180 for the sticks and 60 for the hub fan  not the cheapest hub but the most reliable hub out there.  so you spent 240usd   for a set it and forget it 2gh of hash.  many will say buy the btc and hold so buy 2 btc and hold cost of 260 if you buy from coinbase.  

do both you are at 500 spent.  with everything in hand.  and no more to lose.

Im invested in bitcoin. I saw bitcoin on Max Keiser show. That is what caused me to find the mining world. I am new to mining, I have 6 usb stick already. I run my system on solar power. (like free) Im looking in to the cointerra, but im thinking December is to long to wait. Plus if they don't ship on time (like bfl). So it mite not be the time to go big, but if I dont go now, will their ever be a better time? the diff increase (wont last) will hurt the profit. we talking months or years of 30% per month???

We just don't know what the future difficulty increases will be. But I would think that it will plateau out at some point. The introduction of ASICs created a gold rush effect. Those that got them early enough made back their money and some. Now there are lots of pre-orders being delivered so the hash rate will continue to rise. There is little point ordering now so the hash rate rise should slow when that filters through to delivery. That's just my opinion but I think the boat sailed long ago on making any profit so I'm not buying more kit but I'm keeping on mining for a bit of a hobby with a few USB sticks.

 yeah it is not the time to buy 10's of thousands (usd) worth of gear.   Put in a finger or 2  to test the pudding for taste.

 I am in a better spot as I made a bit of coins due to the doctor's good bitminter client.

 yes and no.  yes in that more diff slows block production no in that 97% is bad and we are up to 97%

  yesterday  the wheel of fortune had 65 slots the new wheel now has 87 slots.  so it is harder to "spin a win".   

but the 97% is based with the diff increase accounted for so it is really lousy number.

Not at all.

Firstly, on average, every second block will take more than 86,933,017
Secondly, a variance of 8 times isn't rare ... 8x = 695,464,136
Thirdly, 10x, though rare, it still happens = 869,330,170

If his CDF calculation is correct, then you should expect the current block length once every ~68 blocks
