I'm working on a mining piece and there's a couple of loose ends I need some info on.
-If you are currently still mining on a CPU in a pool (no matter if its just a fraction of your hashing), I would like to know what your payouts were like when you started (when?) and what they're like now. Does mining on a normal desktop net .001 BTC a day anymore?
-If you were mining well in advance of bitcoins exploding in May, it would be great if you could give an appraisal of how your profits and strategy regarding hoarding vs. cashing out, and adding new equipment vs. downsizing your rig, have changed over time. [If your experience goes back this far - Did you save the coins you mined via CPU before GPU mining was feasible? What would you average a day back then?]
-Any clue about who managed to cash out and make a few K during that run up to $32?
Any information is much appreciated. Thank you.
