Oh hey d00dz. I'm new to this site and basically the whole bitcoin thing. Just wanted to say hello, but also that I have been doing a lot of research, and was thinking of trying something similar to this article:

http://learn.adafruit.com/piminer-raspberry-pi-bitcoin-miner/

It's basically a raspberry pi with some extra USB ports, but instead of using the older style block erupter asic miners, I would attempt to setup the programming to use these newer ones:
http://www.asic-technologies.com/blue-fury-usb-miners/

if it works how I think it will work, it would be extremely efficient on electricity, and a hell of a lot of fun.

I'm not into the mining for money, I just want to mine! lol. Wish I had a few BTC to get started however - with my Nvidia GTX 560, I've made a whopping 0.00022763btc. For fun, I was grabbing some LTC on a spare PC with a gtx 260 for a nice high of 0.00167066ltc.

I wish I could make btc to get equipment to get more btc to get more btc mining equipment to mine more and more btc to get more btc mining equipment. lol.

Welcome to the forum! I figure there is so much money pouring into pushing mining to the next level that it would be impossible to keep up. Good luck, though.
