Guys PLEASE NUMBER!

Has someone done this yet?

Most funny thread on EVERY forum.

I'll start :O

1. When you know the core, memory, sp, codename, etc, of every AMD card by heart.

2. When your Asian friend says he uses PPS to watch videos at home and you think "Pay-Per-Share".

3. When you go the Sahara Desert and say "Psh..my room's hotter than this lol".

4. When you check your miners every 30 seconds to make sure they didn't lock up or are getting connection errors.

I'll think of more later.

It's better to be pissed off, than to be pissed on.

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

6. When your family is used to the power going out in the house.

7. When you enter an airplane and think "my rigs are louder than this". (Just happened to me)

9. Have a dozen bitcoin related apps on your iPhone/iPod/iPad/iMac/iDevice/Android/Nokia Phone
10. Spend your free time browsing forum.bitcoin.org instead of lolcatz, Youtube, Google+, or Facebook

With great video cards comes great power consumption.

When you walk into your "room" and feel a strange comfort at the dry desert-like heat; you know your miners are mining.

When your computer sits "idle" (because you're mining) instead of gaming all day like before, and you can hang out with your wife more, she wonders who this person is and where'd he put her husband? Smiley

When you're visiting family/friends and you wonder how many free PCI-E slots they have...
...or, better yet, if they happen to be using an OpenCL-compatible video card!
